In a report I did on the marijuana business, I focused on a company called mCig, which sells a hybrid between an electronic cigarette and a joint. Basically, the $10 device takes anything from "dry herb" to oil, heats the substance to the edge of combustion and creates a vapor, or a vapor/smoke combination, that can be inhaled.
To demonstrate the product, we asked mCig COO Mark Linkhorst to heat up some mCigs and vape them on camera. It was all done legally in a medical marijuana setting. Linkhorst is allowed to do this under Washington state law.
First, there was "take one."
Then we asked him to do it again.
And once more.
You can see the entire process condensed in the video clip. The cameraman and I wanted to make sure we had the best shots, not really understanding until the very end how much hashish Linkhorst was ingesting. Finally, after four takes, it dawned on me that perhaps it was time to stop.
"I'm feeling very medicated right now," Linkhorst told me. "A lot more relaxed than before I did the interview."
Have a drink on me..
Duuude, you’re bring me down.
Where in the -hell- is ‘medical hashish’ legal???
Lucy was OK, but nothing, I mean nothing tops Red Skeltons Guzzlers Gin bit!
Bob’s not here.
Yeah, he really freaked out and went psycho gonzo... huh?
Dude... You’re like... Totally harshing my mellow, man...
No, he didn’t go psycho gonzo. He just killed a baby while driving.
May they all OD and croak!
Well, he may as well tune in some Sponge Bob Square Pants because, he’s done for the day.
I don’t know about “medical hashish”, but hash oil is okay in Washington state. The stater will certify you to manufacture is as long as you’re “safe”.
By “safe”, I mean that the processor who extracts the hash oil from the clippings has been state-certified that they use a ‘closed-loop’ system which bathes the marijuana clippings in butane and thus extracts the oil. It isn’t cheap to get the kind of machinery needed for a closed-loop system. A lot of people who try to extract hash oil do so using home-made “open” (as in ‘open to the air’) methods. Butane....highly flammable, as you know....doesn’t get properly vented, gets ignited by a spark from somewhere, and BLAMMO! Your house/garage/apartment just blew up.
Hash oil is then dried until it becomes an amber-like substance which is then vaporized and inhaled. The vapors are MUCH more potent than smoking marijuana leaves, and the carcinogenic effects of marijuana smoke are greatly reduced, if not eliminated.
Thanks for that. I am kind of amazed.
There was a time when America was truly great , when it’s men and women were courageous , brave and virtuous . Then came the 60’s and 70’s and 80’s , and so much of that virtue went down the dope toilet . Will we ever recover ? I kind of doubt it . Some changes are , sadly , permanent .
Really? How did the white guy in Washington turn into the black guy meth-user in Kansas?
And sadly..the intro quoted is the only part of that song worth it.
And you can’t find that intro by itself.
At least not while on mobile debice.
And then off he goes to White Castle.
He was born in Kenya!
First of all, the police found marijuana in his system at the time if the arrest. Not meth. Second of all, the link is not so much the color of their skin, but rather the marijuana they toked. But I’m sure you already knew that.
Is Dave here?
Dave’s not here.
No, man, I’m Dave.
“Do you pop out at parties.....are you unpoopular?”
Well thanks, I guess. So would I be considered an “enabler” because I disagree with the war on drugs?
I view smoking marijuana in the same sense as drinking drain cleaner. I think it’s a damned stupid thing to do, but I don’t see that the government has a legitimate need to smash down doors to prevent people from doing so.
I’ll drink to that. Bottoms up!
Yeah, because everybody drinking like fish and smoking like chimneys in the 40's and 50's made America a paradise on Earth.
I am constantly amazed at the selective memories of some people.
you have a point about the drinking and smoking ( tobacco)
America needs to find a sober base again , not swayed by the intoxicant du jour . But really , while certainly some drank , not all were drunks and drunks had little impact on the greater social fabric at large . They were just disgusting within their own little circles ( if they were more than social drinkers ) Smoking tobacco evolved over several centuries and resulted in many respiratory deaths , but again little impact upon the very social fabric beyond their own little world ( and second hand smoke) Drugs however : everything from MJ to LSD , from dmt to stp , from coke to smack , they have far more rended the social fabric and caused an entire generation to think in a ‘different’ way , a less respectful way , a less engaged with both our national future and national history way . While precious few became committed farmers , many people turned into avowed leftists and almost all , and the children they spawned and who now in turn propagate their own children ; ALL tend to vote Democrat and think nothing of the vile ravages upon America by Obama and his minions . They don’t support the U.S. military , rather condemn it , just as they did in their stoned out youth , when they uber dissed returning troops from Vietnam . None see the direct correlation between the goals and aims of the Frankfort School euro-commies , and how they played the drug card and infiltrated the educational system in our country . To this day . Their Alinskyite strategies are succeeding . There is a nexus to the now causal attitudes towards recreational drug use and drug intoxicated lifestyle . Talk to any typical 20’s something stoner and you will know .
In twenty states plus the District of Columbia. Not to mention Colorado and Washington State, where non-medical (recreational) marijuana is legal.
“America needs to find a sober base again...”
Again? It sounds like you never heard of the Temperance Movement or Prohibition. Drugs have been a social problem throughout our history with social drinking arguably the worst of all.
Tell me, do the innocents killed by drunk driving affect the larger society or does it just affect the little social circle of the murderer like you posit?
