various things as you get more experience in being stoned, but this can be analyzed for in comparing the
responses of new heads and old heads. If, however, you haven't been stoned very much in the past six
months, use all your experiences for estimating frequencies. (back)

Chapter 4. One Hundred and Fifty Experienced Marijuana Users
APPROXlMATELY 750 QUESTIONNAIRES were sent out. Of those returned by the cutoff date several months
later, three were rejected because of high scores on the validity scale, as explained earlier, and several others were
rejected because the respondent indicated that he had been intoxicated with marijuana while he was filling out the
questionnaire. A number of partially completed questionnaires were also returned with notes that they were just
too long for the user to complete. Verbal comments by students around campus also indicated that the primary
reason they had not completed the questionnaire was its length. One hundred and fifty usable questionnaires were
left. Thus the 150 respondent users are a verbal lot, sufficiently motivated to help science that they would fill out a
As the data below will indicate, this is primarily a young, student population. How representative it is of any
other specific population is unknown.1 As the primary purpose of the present study was to discover the major
experiential effects of marijuana intoxication, to study the effects of some important background variables, and to
specify the range of phenomena, rather than produce exact figures for a specified population, this lack of
knowledge about the generality of the present sample is not a serious drawback. Again, however, the reader should
be cautioned against overgeneralizing the exact figures presented later.
Some further comments should be made about generalization of the effects in this study to other populations. In
terms of the model for drug intoxication effects presented earlier, it is clear that the intellectual level, social
learnings and expectations, and values of a given population may strongly affect what they will experienc Dalzell, and G Sensiseds Marihuana Big Bud

"“Jack Flash does go a bit long in the flowering, it grows in two types one very Sat/Haze influenced, tall 5'-6' with
huge ""Heads on Sticks"" that dried at over 1 oz. each! there were 5 of them on one lady in a 5 gal pot, she
took about 76 days, but was worth every day. The other type grows very Indica-like, there was one special lady
like this type, that was very fruity with a nice trippy high that gave way to a indica high after the first hour and
the indica-dom. takes about 60 days to flower, also very well worth the wait, several connoisseurs said that it
was amongst the best Indica they had ever smoked, and the taste cured is fantastic. And the strain is very
easy to take care of. It was really nice, and it yields great in both forms. Out of 7-8 different strains grown
Romberry and Jack Flash are definite repeats, as they are both in the Veg closet again. There's really only one
place to get Sensi stock (IMO) but the price is OK considering they give ya 16 beans, in that respect there only
a/b 5$ each. Sorry for the long post but its a favorite and I wanted to give ya my $.02.” - Budm"
“Afoaf has grown and continues to grow Jack Flash, its a great strain, although variable, IMO the variations are
unique and all are quality in there own way. Here's the way the first grow went, 3 ladies were in pots of BCGA's
Super Soil recipe, there were 3 different ladies, one was in a 5 gal pot she was a haze dominated phenotype,
she grew out in a ""heads on stick"" fashion, big huge heads, she was toped once at the 6 node, she grew into 6
big heads, each dried to 20-35 grams she yielded just over 5 oz's, of great tasting wake and bake, uplifting
sativa smoke. Another lady was sort of the runt, she was in a 3 gal pot also pinched at the 6th node, she had
more of a indica phenotype, nice tight colas with red pistils, great smoke very fruity, but yield was bad, at
about 20 grams. The 3rd lady was awesome, also in a 3 gal pot, pinched at the 6th node, she grew the
densest nugs, smelled like lemon, tasted like lemon/hash, and the high was awesome, trippy and thought
provoking, but its best attribute was its wonderful taste, she yielded about 1.5 oz. All said I really like this
strain. The haze influenced lady was crossed with a Posi Big Bud in hopes of bring down its size (5.5') and
flower time 63 days under 80 watts/s.f. of mixed spectrum light.” -Budm"

You should be left with about 6 branches which will rapidly bush out to form a 'goblet' shape. These branches

"Mel Frank says that he knows the breeder in California that developed Durban Poison, and that it came from
2 females out of 16 grown from 1 variety out of six that came from South Africa. Only those two plants were
worth a damn. What he doesn't say is that there must have been some other plants in the mix; a male, eh?
He notes that genetics among growers in SA were already all jumbled up from the sources they had to draw
on, so the claims that Durban is a pure sativa have to be taken with a grain of salt." - SCW
"I'm trying some Durban from Aloha out right now in SOG. I've harvested a small test clone from the female
and it was good quality so I have a little sea of her going now.. 4 per foot in organics, mostly castings. She
stretched more than I wanted or expected under the 1K Agrosun MH, I was aiming for 2 foot high at finish but
will probably hit 2.5. You can train and prune and tie her all over but it won't change the node spacing which
makes for the lankiness. Budding them around 6 to 8 inches, or 5 days of veg is about where I'd do it next
time. The yield should be good, not great.. it won't be huge like a good indica, but weight has more to do
with flowering times and amount of resin (how many cycles per year can you get, and resin weighs alot). I
have no idea if these plants are even distant relatives of the seeds you might get." - ~shabang~
"I messed around with Durban in a 24" sog setup, and it just wouldn't work, but I did have one plant that
stayed fairly short, so I cloned it for a mother and put it aside for some months. Recently I switched to scrog,
and thought of the Durban, so I cloned it up and ran 5 of them under the screen in a 2 x 2' space with a 220
HPS conversion bulb. The Durban wanted to run a bit, but that was OK with the screen method. What I have
now is a number of 4-8" flower spikes about the size of large cigars, and there has been no vertical stretching
for a couple of weeks. I think it will mature nicely, which is good, as Durban is our #1 favorite day smoke. A

Article 36 of the Convention states that the signing nations shall devise sanctions for the
possession and sale of cannabis "subject to its constitutional limitations," and that "the
offense to which it refers shall be defined, prosecuted, and punished in conformity with
the domestic law of a Party." In other words, a signing nation may decide, after signing,
that the stipulations of the treaty violate its internal laws, and may nullify those portions
which do so. Certain states of India, for instance, have retained the legalization of many
cannabis products, deeming a prohibition in violation of local custom and law. In addition,

as well as to an
entire tradition in marijuana commentary. Yet such a conclusion is difficult to avoid. The
marijuana user appears to be more active socially than the nonuser. He has more friends
and socializes more. He is engaged in a larger number and a greater variety of activities
than the nonuser—aesthetic appreciation and creation, political activism, and social
welfare, for instance. (Of course, some other human endeavors, such as traditional and
formal religious participation, are less often the object of marijuana users' interests.)
The zero-sum notion assumes that the two realms, the straight and the stoned, are
antagonistic and incompatible, enjoyed by a wholly different and distinct personnel. In
reality, most potsmokers do not rob their straight life to pay their stoned existence. More
commonly, the two enrich each other. Thus, any model based on the assumption that by
using marijuana those activities which society values will typically or necessarily
deteriorate in the lives of users has to be faulty. In the average user, no such process takes
place. (It will, of course, be a relatively simple matter to uncover exceptions.) The average
marijuana smoker utilizes his drug of choice as an adjunct and an enhancer of many of the
activities that the ordinary law-abiding citizen participates in.
The dire predictions of what happens when someone takes to the weed do not seem to
happen. It is said that although marijuana is not technically addicting, it does generate a
kind of psychological addiction (thus, the stoned model), and that once legal restrictions
are relaxed, huge numbers of persons will be stupefied most of their waking hours. When
we look at the facts, this argument evaporates. Most marijuana users smoke the weed
occasionally. The truly committed "head," the smoker who is high the whole day, day in
and day out, is a relative rarity, perhaps comprising 1 or 2 percent of everyone who has
ever smoked marijuana. And yet it is from this rarefied upper reaches of the world of
potsmoking that society's model of marijuana use is borrowed.
We will, of course, be able to locate specific individuals who are, in fact, high a great
proportion of their waking hours. But the difference between marijuana and any of the
physiologically addicting drugs—including alcohol—in this respect is so great as to be a

difference of kind, and not simply a matter of degree. It is only because the medical
profession views marijuana use by definition pathological and abnormal ("abuse" is
defined as taking a drug outside a medical context) that any use of marijuana has to be
viewed, medically, as a kind of habituation, or psychological addiction. Something
anomalous, puzzling, and disturbing must be labeled pathological. But in less moralistic
terms—and it is only on moral grounds that the medical label makes any sense at all—it is

tends to be made from the less finer skuff material to make more
blocks of hash at a lesser quality. If you smoke homemade hash then
you will probably understand why 90% of street hash is sold at rip-off
prices. Those big ounce chucks you buy probably only contain 10% of
the good stuff, if any at all!
