If you’re not yet familiar with Curren$y the Hot Spitta, for one, you don’t read this site very often, and secondly, you’re missing out. In addition to murdering it on the mic (if you haven’t come up on Smokee Robinson yet, stop reading this and go get it), Curren$y is also a well known weed enthusiast. Answering the questions that stoners have been contemplating for years, Curren$y and his sidekick Trademark the Skydiver took a hint from the Discovery Channel (always a stoner favorite) and created Mythblazers, a web-series in which they investigate and test well known weed myths. The three episodes they made are really helpful, but leave a couple things out, I’ll try and fill in some of the gaps they left.
We’ve all been in the situation: away from home, in a pinch, little weed, no piece or papers, what to do? While I’ve never actually tried the butter knives or small cardboard box method that the Mythblazers used, but I have made quite a few quick, shitty homemade smoking tools, and there are certain things to always remember. The most typical homemade piece, using a water bottle, can be made much more pleasant with a few simple steps. First, always find something that isn’t flammable to use as your bowl, putting the weed directly on the plastic is way too harmful than its worth (although we have all done it at least once in our stoner lives). Tin foil is always a good choice, but for those of us outside of the house, a condom wrapper is a viable last option. Make sure to wash it thoroughly and burn off any excess shit that may be on the wrapper, but it won’t burn through and a few holes from a toothpick will make the perfect bowl for your water bottle pipe. If you’re putting the bowl at the top of the bottle, it’s probably necessary to secure your tin foil bowl to the bottle; this is where the shoelace comes into play. Something we always have, get your Jam Master Jay steez on for the smoke session and use the lace to tie the bowl to the bottle, stops you from loosing weed and contributes to a more pleasant smoking experience.
In the second segment, Curren$y showed us that it’s not a good idea to smoke a whole joint of stems, but there are definitely ways to make use of the odds and ends of the sack. Mostly smoking bowls, I have become accustomed to grinding stems with my weed and smoking them along with weed. This works, but if you’re looking for more use out of stems, try looking up recipes to cook with them, or if you collect for a while, you can allow them to sit in a bottle of your favorite liquor to make green dragon, and if you don’t know what that is, you wanna look it up.
As all of my friends in high-school can attest to, I don’t drive very often. But when I am driving, chances are I’m stoned. If you’re a frequent visitor of this site and are over the age of 16, you most likely didn’t need that video to tell you that driving high isn’t a big deal, but when you are driving high, there are definitely more precautions that you need to take. For one, always keep your bud out of the glove box or center consul, as they’re the first places cops check when searching your car. I myself always put my dank deep in the first-aid kit in my trunk – out of sight, out of mind. It’s also a good idea to have an air freshener or some sort of febreze like fragrance spray, but it’s also good to remember that the smell of weed is not illegal – possession is 9/10 of the law, so keep it well hidden. And just for good measure, remember, a dead tip to the cops that you’re driving stoned off your ass is sitting at a stop sign for way too long, or watching a red light turn green and forgetting that means you have to go (don’t lie, it’s happened to you at least once), so always stay aware and awake.
First of all, we all know weed makes you smarter. Okay, well maybe not smarter, but you certainly feel much more in tune with your thoughts (it’s turning these thoughts into words where the problem often arises). I can’t say that I would have been able to answer all of these questions, high or not, but I can certainly tell you that answering them high would be a much more fun experience than sober. Overall I think it varies on a person by person basis, but I think to be a true stoner one must be capable of at least some sort of quasi-intellectual talk while under the influence. As for stopping weed odor, my personal favorite is Glade Clean Linen, but there are tons that work just as well. If you’re really trying to kill the smell, go outside.
Continue to look out for Curren$y and the rest of the Jets family – remember, if you don’t have Smokee Robinson yet, get it – and lemme know if you guys have any other myths that need blazing and we’ll see what we can figure out.
