Hey, kids! It’s time for some pothead math!

If you were to smoke 50 joints a day, each roughly 3/4s of a gram, you’d be smoking well over an ounce of weed every day.

And that’s just fucking crazy.

Question: is a cock bong SFW? I'm torn on this.

This of course depends on the quality and freshness of the stuff, of course, but if I remember correctly 3/4s of a gram would be a pretty small j. 1 gram per would be almost 2 ounces a day.

Who did they find for this study, Snoop Dogg?

One other thing...

"People with major medical or psychiatric illness, alcohol dependency and other drug use such as cocaine or heroin were excluded from the study."

Did they even bother to exclude tobacco smokers from the study? If not, I'd think it's a fair guess to say most of the users smoked tobacco and most of the control did not.

@1) It's totally SFW--that's not a cock, it's a carrot. A big, hard carrot bong.

Only Americans measure in ounces. The rest of the world is metric.

Do you get some kind of university grant for this, Will?

That doesn't seem like very much, but then again, I don't even know what pot smells like.

@4 Wow the carrots I grow in my garden never look like that. Perhaps I'm only growing female carrots.

a very good friend of mine had a cock-bong like that... i suspect that it may have been made from the same mold, as well.

another very good friend of mine refused to smoke from the cock-bong. he never said why, but the fact that he refused to smoke from a cock-bong made me think he might have been gay a lot more than it would have if he had smoked from it...

and, for the record, my friend who actually owned the cock-bong actually was gay... he's dead now... 8(

@6 - no, but I conducted extensive research and published two papers on the subject, Fnarf.

Just a hint, the grow area in Vancouver is North Vancouver, BC - and the college I got my first two degrees at is there.

Primo green.

Your last 3 posts seem to indicate that you have a problem with excessive substance abuse. Or, if you don't like that (because it hits too close to home), then remember that you're posting to the Slog and not your own lame-assed personal blog.

@11 -- not what I meant, Will, but thanks for sharing.

It's a veiny incense holder.

Whose ball bag gets a hard on? I wouldn't smoke out of that bullshit either.

Posted by Reginald | May 15, 2008 5:52 AM

So, I guess the moral of this story is, don't do anything in excess, wow, this really has opened my eyes...
