'Overall: I tried a couple bong hits and immediately felt the head buzz starting. The joint smoked nicely too – allowing me to get a better taste of "Cindy". Again, smooth and a pleasant tasting smoke.

I think I prefer a joint for the flavor, but the bong provided a better burn (might have been that this was still a little too fresh and needed a bit more dry/cure time). A great daytime bud if you like strong sativas. –NorCal_Cyclist '

HIGH TIMES: Public Opinion and the Climate for Reform

'Public support for marijuana legalization has been growing. But what else is on people’s minds these days? This is important, because the legalization of marijuana requires more than widespread public support. It also has to become a priority for the political system. Maybe not the biggest priority, but politicians and legislators need to make it an action item; they have to perceive this as an issue the public not only supports but also an issue the public wants resolved.'

'Is marijuana responsible for John Patrick Bedell's suicidal assault on the Pentagon? Yes, says Washington Post blogger Charles Lane, although his theory of the plant's criminogenic effects is slightly more sophisticated than Harry Anslinger's.

NORML: Real World Ramifications of Cannabis Legalization and Decriminalization

'Opponents of such liberalization proposals inevitably argue that any efforts toward decriminalizing or legalizing cannabis will adversely impact the public’s use of marijuana and/or young people’s attitudes toward it. Yet regional data gleaned from around the word consistently demonstrates that the imposition and enforcement of harsh criminal marijuana penalties do not dissuade cannabis use, and moreover, that criminalization is an objectively ineffective public policy.'

The Pentagon Shooter and Medical Marijuana

'The death of John Patrick Bedell, the 36-year-old man shot and killed by Pentagon police officers after he opened fire on them March 4, is a tragedy. It might have been avoided if Bedell had received timely and effective treatment for his obviously serious mental illness. The fact that he did not is a cause for soul-searching by all of us. Advocates of “medical marijuana” should be especially chastened.'

Let me get this straight. He took medical marijuana, and at some point in his life he wigged out and started shooting up the Pentagon? So it's our fault?

Pardon my French, but are you fucking kidding me? That's like saying carrots cause cancer. Most people with cancer have consumed carrots in their lifetime. Does that mean there is a correlation between cancer and carrots?

Of course not. It's the same as the gateway drug theory, just because someone smoked weed, it doesn't mean it led to all the bad decisions they ever made in their lives. This dude was nuts; weed can't cure everything.

'Overall: Bubbleator does exactly what it says it does, but I found that if you’re using less than the max amount of material you don’t want to run it for too long, as it will result in plant material getting through.

When I did this the first time it gave me green hash, not the pure crystals I was hoping for. You just need to eyeball it and use some common sense as far as timing goes. If you do this while high, be prepared to f*^k up your results. I used the machine twice – once with high quality organic – which gave me positive results, and once with schwag that showed green hash.'
