15 Things You Should Know about Marijuana

Fun poster but not all of it is accurate. Can you spot the major inaccuracies?  If you were creating a poster, what are some of the “things you should know about marijuana?”

(Go here to see where I got the poster–thanks to a reader.)

    Blast! All this time I’ve been smoking the buds, not the leaves.

  • #4 has to be a wrong answer !

  • #4–The Chinese have used it as a medicine since 2800 BCE.

    #8 misses the whole story of Harry Anslinger and the political move to replace alcohol with marijuana as Prohibition ended and the Bureau of Alcohol was about to be axed.

  • Not to mention that while hemp and pot are related, hemp is NOT marijuana!
    (no. 5) .
    Too many people own photoshop.

  • I don’t know how anyone would get an accurate fix on the numbers but Reuters says as of January of this year that Mexico is number one and Paraguay is number two.

  • I wonder how that many people died from caffeine?

  • I love this, Kym! I knew you couldn’t OD on cannabis, but it has made my day to learn that if you smoke 800 joints, you’ll die from carbon monoxide poisoning before you’ll die from THC. I’m big on keeping things in perspective, and this list does just that – despite a few inaccuracies, hee. By the way, “I’ve Been Doing It Wrong” gave me the best laugh I’ve had today.

  • The most important thing to know about marijuana is that it is the same thing as HEMP. If you legalize marijuana you legalize hemp and that is the greatest thing any of us could do in this time and place.

  • Why hemp could save the world .
    “That title probably should say, “Why hemp could have saved the world all along,” because the plant should never have been banned in the first place, and its prohibition has led to untold suffering around the globe. If we—the global human population—had been able to grow the miracle plant hemp (Cannabis genus) locally and to use it for local industries and businesses, including and especially for fuel, we would never have needed to be addicted to oil, for one, an addiction that is at the root of much misery. We would never have allowed ourselves to be lorded over by international oil-mongers whose crimes against humanity have become legion, including wholesale invasion of other lands and slaughter of countless people.”

  • Thanks Suz, I thought that was pretty funny too. I drive by a lot of old growth fir stumps of trees that might have been saved instead of getting cut down, if hemp for paper had taken off in the 1930’s. I thought the best line from this article was ol’ George W’s “”Make the most of the Indian hemp seed, and sow it everywhere!” — I have more than a few neighbors who would say NIMBY!…. seeds…aaack! LOL.

    • Thanks Suz, I thought that was pretty funny too.

      Maybe you misunderstood. I was laughing at the naive tie-dye hippy-dippy bumper-sticker mentality of yours that thinks in one-liners about saving the world.

      Why don’t you make a bumper sticker of that one for your car? I don’t think the neighbors would appreciate it though. Your car might get rolled off a cliff and accidentally filled with bullet holes. But seriously, that you think that that is the best line from the article is an indication of your cruelty rearing it’s ugly old head. It’s a cruel laugh that I hear and it sounds like a revengeful laugh too, at your neighbors –your neighbors who are doing the right thing by breaking an immoral law. But I suppose I must admit that my good conscience tells me that one should feel sorry for a person like you who’s inadequacy for personal salvation leads him to such a pitiful projection. Yet my gut feeling is that you can take your hemp idea and go save the world with it somewhere else.

      PRESERVE HUMBODLT SINSEMILLA!

  • Nah, not cruel at all… if it sounded that way, it was poor writing. Projecting? Revengeful? My neighbors would have laughed at my apparently lame attempt at humor, as I get along great with them and respect their craft and modest scale endeavors.
    I need to give my attempts at humor a break, here and there, aint workin’ – you are better at that, usually.
    Such feedback as this helps me.
    Go sinsemilla and hemp plantations (in appropriate places)!

    • Appropriate to who? Oh never mind. Perhaps you weren’t being cruel. I will give you the benefit of the doubt about your well intentioned but lame attempt at black humor, aaack… Maybe it could even be conceived of as being almost funny if it weren’t so stale 🙂
      But my original “LOL” was referring to the impotence of the naive idea that you advanced about saving the world. I suppose that you would be the last one to see it as a projection, but that’s what I thought was so ironic,

  • The link article was about saving the world by using hemp….which I thought was a pretty funny notion…. I did not post the article or “bumper quips” as an example of my saving the world thinking, because I am not a world saver type.
    But I suppose I must admit that my good conscience tells me that one should feel sorry for a person like you who’s inadequacy for personal salvation leads him to such a pitiful projection.… no need to feel sorry for me Suz.

      -don’t worry, Suzy doesn’t follow her conscience. btw you forgot the ‘y’ at the end of my name.

      • Suzy Blah Blah it is….dually noted.
        No more seedy comments from me Ma’am.

        • I did not post the article as an example of my saving the world thinking, because I am not a world saver type.

          Yeah sure. I asked that you spell my name right so how do you reply? you call me “Ma’am”. That’s ill. Do you like wearing a chip on your shoulder? That’s about all I can say about it here as it’s nearly impossible to communicate with you because you don’t talk to the real Suzy Blah Blah. Instead you reply to a fantasy of your imagination, “Suz”, or “Ma’am” or whoever, a familiar image that you created so as to direct your feelings of the time at it. All I did was ask you to refer to me by my correct name and so now you are thumbing your nose at (me) by using terms like “ma’am” and “duly noted” which indicates that you have your back up and you’re now replying to the negative authoritative female image from your stable of projections. Maybe it comes from your mother or a nun or teacher you had to deal with in your younger days. I don’t know. Earlier it was the “international oil mongers” that received the brunt of your knee-jerk defensiveness and righteous indignation.

  • Ok, maybe one should feel sorry for me for so much lame and sub-lame humor, but not too much…

  • I thought it was 3 mile radius and the chance of male pollen contamination approaches zero.

    Ditchweed pollinates crops too but SWIM can be pretty sure most of the seeds are that pollen brushed on the plants and not random pollen.

    It is less trouble to keep sinsemilla semi virgin than it is to avoid getting the wrong pollen on a seed crop for obvious reasons.
