How much does a joint cost?
|by Anonymous||reply 102||04/14/2015|
No one buys a joint, well, outside of medical marijuana shops.
You buy sections of an ounce of weed, so commonly you hear an eighth, which is an eighth of an ounce.
For good weed, that will normally run you 40-60 depending on what type of market you are in (ie: how readily available the product is).

I'm in NYC, not Manhattan and I pay $50 for an eighth and they deliver it to me.

What R1 said, except in Philly an eighth runs $50-70.
"A joint". You're cute, OP. Pot dealers aren't sitting around rolling cigarettes all day.
If that's your only reference, though, I guess an eighth is between 7-15 joints. 7 fatties or 15 skinnies, give or take.
I'm a daily pot smoker and I'm pretty much high all weekend, every weekend (unless I have to drive or speak to my mother) and an eighth lasts me between 4 and 5 days. When I was unemployed I went through a quarter each week, but now two eighths or a quarter lasts me about a week and a half, almost two if I'm particularly busy.
Pot is awesome.

R 8&9 were you drinking while getting high? For many people who aren't used to it, that can really make you nauseous. If your lungs aren't used to smoke that can also make you real sick, just like smoking a cigarette for the first time (though cigarettes are a nasty poison unlike weed).
Interestingly, the only thing that got me through a horrible foray with food poisoning in March was a little bit of weed to kill the nausea.

R8, I'm sorry it makes you paranoid. A lot of people have that unfortunate reaction. It sucks, I have friends like that. I think it might be brain chemistry for some people. I do sometimes get a little paranoid, but I recognize it's the drug and just put it aside. OMG IS THAT THE COPS ???!?
More than anything, pot relaxes me. It literally makes me happy. I open up more, think differently, and crave stimulation; music, social interaction (in person or electronic), pets, video games, movies/TV, food, sex/masturbation. Some of these are more passive than others, but mostly they're sensory and you don't have to leave the couch to do them. I also work on creative projects (I'm a visual artist of course), write, clean and work out while stoned.
Wait, what were we talking about? I'll be right back.

Oh yeah, nausea. I don't get that at all. Just the opposite, and that's one of the medicinal uses. All those chemo patients can't be wrong. It calms naseous stomachs and stimulates appetite. It's my go-to hangover cure for exactly that reason.
Drinking and smoking is fun but be careful. They're two potent depressants and they mix far too easily (house party anyone?) Too much of one or both can fuck you up if your tolerance for one (or both) is low. I always lean towards booze when both are available because it's the more social drug and I don't do it everyday (more like once a week or less). Pot in party situations should be kept to a minimum if you're knocking down drinks most of the night. Paranoia is never good while socializing, and with the red eyes and the smell and the awkward exits and entrances it just makes for poor socializing. One or two hits later in the night is it for me. Save it for the hangover.
Ok I'm starving, be back later.

It goes for around $50 an eighth here in WeedRegion, Oregon. How long it lasts depends on how committed you are to regular smoking. We smoke about 4-6 times a month, depending how much stress or physical pain we happen to have.
When I first smoked pot a couple times as a teenager, I did it in a circle of people and went to paranoia. Now I only smoke with people I feel really solid with, or that paranoia can creep in, mostly about my place in social hierarchies.
With just my partner, we do it when he has nausea, with body pain from a car accident, when stressed about life, and also when we have some extra time and just want to float for awhile.
What we get while high? Mostly, it lets our minds come up with different and deeper perspectives on life than we otherwise have access to. We become philosophers. Sometimes we spend hours conversing, going deeply into subjects we'd normally brush the surface of. Sometimes we just fixate on minute details, which are fascinating to us in the moment but ridiculous to anyone sober (I'm high right now). Sometimes we have intense sex, long-lasting, much more sensate and emotional. Sometimes we watch a trippy movie that will get our minds spiraling all over the place. Science shows, science-fiction, anything mind-bending. We generally want to eat a lot of delicious stuff. But yeah, it relaxes the normal persona and lets other things come out. I will admit we have our bad highs too where it isn't all flowers and love. Then we get into bad arguments while going deeply, and it ruins the whole experience.

[R21] There is some truth to this post. If you are an infrequent user you do get the munchies. If I have not used in for awhile, I smoke a joint and eat everything in the house.

Alright buddy. Sorry about these weirdos not answering you directly. The average joint of weed is about $10.
|by Anonymous||reply 32||01/28/2015|
The reason people get paranoid is twofold: too much medicine at one time, and unresolved issues/uptightness. No worries, we're all a little that way, but let pot give you a slow unfolding rather than smack you with it - you just can't process the looseness in the beginning if you overdo it. Then just do it once a month in the beginning (unless you crave it more).
I suggest not smoking a "joint" if you're in the least bit turned off by the taste/smell. Use, at minimum, a pipe, but even better is a bong (I got a decent bong for $25 but you can get a cheap pipe for $10). I've tried a joint and the taste is horrible.
Next, take the tiniest little puff if you're new, and that's it. Your tolerance is low and if it's too much, it can ruin your experience, make you paranoid, or start thinking all the worst thoughts about yourself (like whatever normal self-negativity you have, but intensified). I took conservative amounts for a long time until I developed a tolerance and needed more. It made my weed last longer too. Taking just that tiny, gentle puff allowed my mind to go to all sorts of nice places, and let me feel happy/love rather than be uptight. When new, make sure to smoke with someone you trust well (to avoid paranoia), or alone.
TIP: Sprinkle a little allspice atop the weed in your pipe/bong. It mellows the taste even more. I got a vision about it one day, tried it and loved it.
Finally, there are two kinds: sativa and indica. I think sativa is the energizing one and indica is the "in da couch" one where you sit around. I wish I could say I didn't get the munchies when high. I only want to eat cookies and chips when stoned. I probably have the indica kind.

I had a friend who lived in a high rise, and when I visited her a guy would just ride up and down the elevators, making stops, but he got deported (not due to drugs though).
I heard a story about a comedian who grew up in Baltimore and had a newspaper route with a series of clients along the way. On a particular day each week, he would put the weed inside of the client's newspaper, and then the client would put an envelope with cash in the mailbox for him the next morning. He said it trusted his clients because they were all white collar folks who greatly appreciated his services and knew if they skipped paying him they would have a hard time getting back on the list.
He said he would never do business like that with crackheads or meth users, but he trusted the potheads.
I would even subscribe to the AJC (even DAILY) to get a set up like that.

My hubby and I have used it for 40 years. It helps anxiety. Different strains have very different effects. Some relieve anxiety, some produce anxiety. Nausea is strickly a newbie symptom but it can happen with some strains, usually south of the border types. Usually it has the opposite effect. Northern Ca. the price is around $2000 a pound.

For those that feel paranoid on weed, that's just your body getting used to it. Once you smoke it a lot for a long time the paranoia goes away completely. I remember when I was a g-yling the first few times I smoked it I felt fearful. But it gradually got less and less each time - pot is the only drug that gets BETTER and more pleasant the more you do it.
To answer the OP's question, where I live it's $20/per gram and $55/per eighth. A gram is enough to make three fat, tampon-looking joints.

I worked with two people (man and woman) for about 12-years. Both were moderate pot smokers that started to smoke more heavily over time. Both were fired within months of each other. Both became increasingly nasty and paranoid. I work in a creative field, and you could see each becomes less creative and vibrant over time.
I think regular pot smokers begin to lose objectivity when it comes to how it impacts their personality. They see themselves from the inside out and can't see the changes and seem to forget about how they appear to others.

I get hybrids specifically for joint pain (arthritis from prior knee/ankle accident).
I use Leafly.com a lot to research what's available from the dispensary. For example, right now I'm smoking Sour Diesel. Leafly's description:
Sour Diesel, sometimes called Sour D, is an invigorating sativa named after its pungent, diesel-like aroma. This fast-acting strain delivers energizing, dreamy cerebral effects that have pushed Sour Diesel to its legendary status. Stress, pain, and depression fade away in long-lasting relief that makes Sour Diesel a top choice among medical patients.

[R81], you and I have very different experiences in our encounters with daily smokers. Sure, I've met the "sit around and be stoned" kind, but very rarely. Everyone I know has very productive lives. For example:
Friend A - 60 yrs old, retired after 30 years as communications director of a large non-US govt agency; she smokes to relieve arthritis pain (knee replacement)
Friend B - 49 yrs old, master tool and die maker for huge corporation; she makes the molds that make the parts. She smokes to relax as she does't drink (doesn't like the feeling it gives her). Her company knows she smokes after work and they don't care, as she long as she doesn't come in that way. Because she's brilliant at her job.
Friend C - 44. Computer programmer, medium sized company. Taking an advanced physics class "for fun", as he enjoys the challenge. Will have a pint of ale maybe once per year.
Friend D - 39. Computer programmer and security analyst, huge multi-national corporation. Got transferred to Amsterdam office; discovered smoking weed after work is akin to going to happy hour with the coworkers. On a non-work night, add a couple pints in with the joint. Get as stoned as you like; just don't show up to work that way.
I used the examples above as you used a bit of a blanket statement - a lot of regular pot smokers are very productive people, and I'm sorry you haven't met more of them. If you're openly anti-pot, however, people are far less likely to disclose it due to fear of being judged. And FYI - I'm a daily smoker. I'm a librarian.

[quote] please regale us with the details of your many successful relationships with non-pot smokers. Since you concluded that pot = bad from a grand total of two relationships, I'm sure we can extrapolate all sorts of assumptions based on your experiences with other paramours.
You probably should smoke MORE pot. If anyone needs to mellow out, it's you.

[quote] I used the examples above as you used a bit of a blanket statement - a lot of regular pot smokers are very productive people, and I'm sorry you haven't met more of them. If you're openly anti-pot, however, people are far less likely to disclose it due to fear of being judged. And FYI - I'm a daily smoker. I'm a librarian.
Kipper, I wonder if it's a cultural thing then. Yes, in many states in the US, medicinal marijuana has become legal, but there's still the lure of the forbidden and there's a definite rebellious (for lack of a better word) connotation with smoking pot for many people over here, which I suspect (from what I know about the culture over there) is just not part of smoking pot in Amsterdam. People smoke here to get fucked up. And the daily smokers I know smoke it several times a day, every day. It's the difference between having a beer after dinner every night (or a coffee of two every morning) or sitting down and getting drunk.

R61, a friend told me last night there is a study of long-term pot smokers (smoking daily for over 20 years) and they found no lung problems. I'm not sure what their delivery method was, whether they were smoking joints in paper, from a pipe or from a bong, but as a regular pot smoker, I have to say a pipe is the easiest method for all the time. Vaping (pot, not nicotine) is possibly okay, too.
Apparently, smoking pot (according to study) was actually anti-carcinogenic. So, smoke pot to not get cancer.
If your friend is still concerned, however, you can always put pot in a crock pot (do not read that as crack pipe :P) with butter or coconut oil for some hours and just ingest it. If he's terminal, he has nothing to lose from smoking pot.

In Oregon, since legalization, pot prices went down from $300/oz to $100/oz. But a lot of people buy a quarter ounce for $25.

This is why libertarians are right on every issue- just INCREASE freedom and REDUCE government and things get better!

I totally agree with the poster who stated that "smokers" have attention issues and difficulty accomplishing goals.
I would never attempt a romantic relationship with someone who smokes marijuana.
It's a drug, and it's a much more serious, effect laden drug than caffeine.

Can't imagine a pot smoker would be attracted to you either. So, no problems there.
Moving on, I think the anxiety is caused by the deep relaxation...everything that's repressed rises to the surface.
One of the reasons I gave up was due to the mostly poor quality of the pot here in England. Sometimes you could tell it was full of chemicals and it was just nasty. I'd need a 'good' joint just to recover my equilibrium.
I have barely even thought about pot for years until I read this thread.
I was a real pot head in that nothing else, no other drug did it for me, neither did booze.
Typical pot smoker...love music, very talkative, love my own company on pot, very creative.
I miss it a lot, but it began to make me very anxious...quite rationally, it turns out.
Some day, I'll go back to it. I'm looking forward to it. Even talking about it is making me feel a little high.

Re: Productive/successful pot smokers. I've worked for a couple of them, including one of the writer-producers of "Coach." We would smoke a joint and listen to "Car Talk" n NPR, together, before I went to run errands for him & his wife (also a t.v. writer). Good times! I loved working for them!

Can somebody/anybody give this person a dollar number please?! Ballpark for a normal doobie. Also: there is NO way to read or write legal documents unless HIGH.
