Ah the Karmic wheel...... watched Cheech and Chong with my kids once......ever since they can't resist knocking on the bathroom door and yelling "Dave's not here man"....  and an ounce of pot was a LID and 2.5 martini would never make me want to eat 7/11 nachos.....barf them maybe but not crave them!  :'(

I only thought they were for display....  It's like eating Mo's pickled eggs.  Bad things can happen.

...  and an ounce of pot was a LID

It's all very fuzzy, but I seem to remember a lid as being 3 fingers - an unweighed amount, but somewhat less than an oz. That may have varied by region.

Disclaimer - I have no personal knowledge of lids, ozs, or marijuana. This is all just hearsay. I think. Can't remember. Don't quote me on that.  8)

I grew up in HI in the 70's... you could walk out to the cane fields, and if not greedy, pick what you wanted, dry it out, and have some good stuff.  When I moved back to the mainland in 77, middle of my Jr year of HS, the stuff available was pretty nasty.

This year in CO, it's on the ballot for legalization... not just medical use, but personal use.  I can't wait to see the results.

Now, the classic 1936 Reefer Madness is a must view for all wannabe toke heads!!

My Dad tells about how this was once presented as the real deal.....
Showed it in school as an educational film, he was already playing in a band and "knew better", so he describes it as one of the pivotal moments where his generation began to "turn on"

Hard for my generation to understand how they ever tried to take it seriously. Ya want to ask the writers "Have you ever actually seen anyone high on pot?"

Or if they could at least done a follow-up called Tequila maddness!?

Yea, I would rather smoke a lid than drink a martini or anything else for that matter. I wonder what they call them these days? The mexican poot weed they use to sell in Texas cost $10.00 in the 70's. At some point the good stuff from Southern Mexico and points farther south started making its way to the local neighborhoods. The cost of doing business went up significantly at that point. That stuff was everywhere. I guess it still is. So much for the war on drugs.

I'm pretty sure that they still call 'em martinis.    ;)
