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

Every marijuana user is not only a marijuana user, he is invariably also a friend, and his
friends also smoke.
There is a positive and linear relation between the amount one smokes
and the percentage of one's friends who also smoke (see Table 10-3).

This would create, therefore, a certain amount of pressure to sell. The more that one
smokes marijuana, the higher the proportion of one's friends who are marijuana smokers;
the higher the proportion of one's friends who are marijuana smokers, the greater is the
probability that they will buy and sell from one another, particularly as their turnover in
supply is so much greater (see Table 10-4).

Moreover, not only is a higher proportion of the heavy smoker's friendship network
more likely to smoke, but he is also more likely to have access to information concerning
the availability of periodically appearing quantities of marijuana on the market.
more likely to know others who buy and sell and who are higher up in the distribution
He is more acquainted with the price system, which fluctuates even in the short
run. He knows more about some of the rules and precautions to take to avoid arrest, thefts
"burns" and being short-changed, as well as buying adulterated goods.
He can buy and sell
successfully and with confidence. Anyone arriving
on the marijuana scene in a completestranger
situation would encounter great difficulty in making a large purchase.
There is a two-way process at work here. On the one hand, one must be implicated in a
web of social relations to be able to purchase the drug. In this sense, friendship patterns
are a necessary condition for selling to take place. But one's friendship network is not
merely a passive requirement for selling and buying; it is also an active force which
insures one's involvement in selling as an activity, since friends who smoke make requests
and demands that often relate to marijuana sales.
In addition, selling further implicates one
in social relations that are marijuana-based. By buying and selling, one extends one's
network of acquaintances, almost all of whom are marijuana users.
In short, friendships
and sales intersect with one another; they are inseparable elements of a single dimension.
Their relationship with one another must be seen in dialectical terms, rather than simple

Marjoannadorge Hehe... sounds like a strong sativa. I have a Haze19Xskunk#1 (positronics) that kicks out bud with a distinct
'heart racing' feeling. This bud keeps me wide awake. Zero to LSD in two tokes. This may be of interest to
those wishing to grow killer sativa outside and have it mature. I grew Haze #19 from TAC and had 80% of the
plants start flowering after 3 months regardless of day length. I have no explanation for this but I talked to
Mike at TAC and he said that this is common with Haze #19 which is very variable. We are still getting 14 hours
of daylight and my Haze has been flowering for two months. It is typical Haze potency but you need to be fairly
experienced to grow it properly unless you have a good location. The reason being that it grows very tall and
spindly and it also grows very fast." - Dynamite Started with 10 seeds, all 10 germinated and sprouted. Had 6 females and 4 males with this variety all but one
practically identical. They grew and looked like clones from the same Ma and they grew well. No males were
kept after indicating sex, probably a mistake. This variety was a pleasant surprise with yield and especially
buzz, what a buzz.
Of the 6 females 5 of them were just about identical in growth both during veg and flowering. They had leaves
somewhere between the indica dark and sativa light green with midsize width blades. The one loner plant
showed its differences during flowering. While the majority had bud covering most of the stem this one grew
nuggets at the nodes, thick tight ones.
Because they were so similar in growth just three were kept to be grown from clones. They were all worthy
mothers though. As a matter of fact if you had to or wanted to do a seed crop from plants grown out in Jr. as of

tions (holes) at the bottom. The perforated pot sits on a small
dish (you should be able to buy these at the same time you buy your
pots). When you water your plant some of the water may drain down
through the soil and come out through the perforations and into the
dish. The dish should be emptied if this happens to avoid water spills.
More advanced growers use pots that do not contain
perforations at the bottom. This is because advanced growers never
water or feed their plants too much. If you over-water your plant, these
perforated pots will drain some of the water through to the dish. What
happens is that the water may also leech down some of the nutrients
that you have added to your soil. Over-watering can cost you time,
wasted nutrients and even kill your plant.
Before you use a pot make sure that you clean it thoroughly
before use to get rid of any unwanted chemicals or dust that may have
gathered in the shop or factory.
Pots are very cheap to buy. It is always best that you only use
one pot per plant. If there is a problem with the soil, watering or
nutrients then only one plant will feel the effects.

So at this stage you now have the best soil that you can get
your hands on. You take the seedling and make the transplant. You fill
in the empty areas of the new pot with more soil. You pat down the top
of soil lightly and you apply the stake if needed to support your plant.
You also add a small amount of water to your pot and you place the
pot on the bench under the light. You will leave the light on 24 hours a
day and watch as your plant grows over the weeks from its seedling
cycle to its vegetative state.

Water your plant ever second or third day or better still when
they dry out. Never let the soil dry out completely for long periods of
time. The following method works best with good size pots.
Day A - watering, Day B - let dry, Day C - let dry, Day D - check soil
and water if needed.
This really does depend on the size of your pots though. If you
pick up your pot when it is dry and pick up the same pot when it is has
been watered, you can tell the difference in weight. This is a Razdan and G , 6, 493 (1963)

that normal cannabidiol (n·CBD, 12) and abnormal cannabidiol (abn-CBD, 14)
were formed first and in a ratio of 1:2 it tends to reduce desire and to dull the sexual areas. Norman Taylor, a
botanist, writes, "As to being a sex-excitant, marijuana appears to be just the
opposite."18 Constantinos Miras, a Greek pharmacologist and one of the drug's severest
critics, disclosed to a seminar at the UCLA Department of Pharmacology that marijuana
actually impairs sexuality, and when administered to rats, their rate of "reproductive
activity" declined go percent.19 If, physiologically, marijuana is neutral—or even
negative—to sexuality, why are so many people sexually turned on by it? Why, after
smoking the faddish banana, don't its users descend from a trial high to discover that it is
neutral to sex desire and enjoyment?
Consider the mythology. Its use has traditionally been associated with the dramatic loss
of sexual inhibition, and with what were thought to be the inevitable consequences:
depravity, degradation, shame. Marijuana, according to an historic description, completely
inflames the erotic impulses and leads to revolting sex crimes. For years, propaganda from
the press assisted the Federal Bureau of Narcotics' campaign to nurture an evil image. An
account written in the 1930s chronicles the degradation of a young girl lured into
Her will power dropped away from her like a rent garment, leaving her a
tractable, pliant creature, as exposed to chance suggestion as if her soul had
been naked to the wind.20
The unfortunate girl so discarded her inhibitions that she accepted proposals from
strangers. When she came to her senses, she was so mortified that she committed suicide.
The sex-loaded invectives of the antimarijuana campaign may have been a tactical
blunder. They seem to have attracted more recruits than they discouraged. Sociologists
and psychologists stress the power of mood, expectation, social conditioning, setting, and
myth in shaping the nature of the drug experience. And our mood, expectations, social
conditioning, setting and myths have long associated marijuana with sex. We have learned
to associate it with sensuousness and carnality, with hedonism and physical gratification.
And so it stimulates those very reactions which are called debauchery by its critics and
rapture by its adherents.
The human, unlike the caged rat, has a broad latitude in shaping the nature of his
environment, even of his own body chemistry. Man's somatic responses are often
influenced more by what he thinks than by biological and chemical imperatives; in fact, it
can happen that what he thinks actually becomes his biological and chemical imperative.

Thus the user's attitude toward marijuana may determine what happens to his body when
he smokes it. It is only in the narrowest sense that the drug is not a sexual stimulant; that
is, in the sense that it will not excite mindless, laboratory-located animal tissue. But many
