Dabs; Good or Bad?
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 30th 2013 by THCFinder
If you don't know what dabs are, you're definitely behind the times on what's going on in the cannabis word. Dabs are a form of concentrated THC that is smoked. It is called numerous names, just like our dear Mary Jane (wax, shatter, oil, errl, etc). Unfortunately for those who indulge in this new form of getting stoned, parents and anti-marijuana campaigners are making dabs out to be the new heroin.
I have never tried to dab. It is not something that I am interested in, mostly because I have seen the results of badly made oil that looks like chunks of tar taken directly off of the road. Dabs are normally made with butane, which extracts the THC from the flowers and creates the concentrate, which can range from 70-90% THC. The concentrate can also be made with ice and water but takes a bit more effort but produces a MUCH better and much more desire result; ice wax.
The benefits of dabs include the following; They don't smell like weed does. Everyone who's transported weed in their car knows that that shit stinks. It's potent and cops can sniff it out better than doughnuts. Dabs don't give off that unmistakable odor. Another benefit is that since the THC is so concentrated, there is no need to have large amounts on you. It makes it easier to hide the substance in a purse or pocket. The best benefit (I think) is the fact that there are devices available to smoke dabs out of that are easily mistaken for an e-cigarette. Law enforcement won't know if you're exhaling water vapor or THC.
Now for the negative side. Whenever peoples tolerance to a drug gets too high, they seem to want to create something stronger to get the desired effect. While it may make sense to us as stoners, others don't see it that way. The making of dabs is extremely dangerous and should only EVER be attempted by a person who knows exactly what they are doing. There are numerous reports from all over the place of stupid kids trying to make BHO inside their house and blowing themselves up. Does that sound like meth to anyone else? That's how the anti-marijuana people view it. Uneducated kids are making the mistake of turning marijuana in to something that's actually harmful.
As I stated earlier, the area I live in does not produce quality shatter and I've seen severe butane headaches and people completely unable to function because they're literally too stoned. I'm not about that at all and would rather wait to try dabs when I have the opportunity to get well made product. Unfortunately, at this point in time, I think that it is a serious issue in the marijuana community. While the majority of stoners are getting higher than ever, there are people getting hurt trying to make this stuff. Obviously, since we know the conditions needed to produce this product, we have an inside perspective. Parents of the children who have hurt themselves by making BHO see it very differently than we do and will continue to use arguments like this against marijuana legalization.

Marijuana has been a staple in my life for the past six years. It helps with my anxiety, eating, sleeping, and most important of all, it gives me the ability to handle the people that I deal with at work. For four years, I've been a bartender in a colorful variation of establishments. Since I don't drink alcohol and don't particularly care for it, dealing with drunk coworkers and even drunker patrons gets extremely old after a while. It's become a routine for me to get as stoned as I possibly can before heading to the bar because let's face it, drunk people get annoying when you're sober... And they get annoying fast.
I've perfected the art of being baked at work and I figured that I would share some of these tips with you in case you're like me as I'm sure most of you are. Working stoned can be extremely scary when you're not used to it. I used to avoid smoking before work because I was petrified that my boss would find out. These days, I'm pretty sure that all three of my bosses know that I'm a huge stoner and write for both THCFinder and Stonerdays. They even read the articles I put out.
The key to working stoned is to just always act stoned. Staying in the mindset that I'm still high seems to work for me. When I first started at my current job, I learned that this method is perfect. Thinking that you're stoned with create the placebo effect almost... If you think it hard enough, your eyes will still hang low and you'll pull off that slow smile that stoners have adopted as their trademark. It will help you slip under the radar of annoying bosses that have nothing better to do than wonder if all of their employees are on drugs.
Sometimes, being stoned at work is the only way to make it through a day. It even becomes necessary to smoke at work occasionally. Just make sure that you're still accomplishing the things that are required. Being a fully functioning stoner only proves that marijuana isn't the laziest drug ever and not all of us are slackers. By being able to function while stoned just shows how well we can manage ourselves! People take medicine at work all the time and I believe that people who use marijuana for medical reasons should be able to as well! Just keep looking permafried! ;)
Man Gets Sentenced To 20 Years In Prison For A Half Ounce Of Marijuana

Louisiana is one of the worst places to get busted with marijuana in the country. Louisiana marijuana laws are so harsh that I can’t imagine being a marijuana consumer there. I live in Oregon where the marijuana laws are very liberal, so maybe Louisiana’s laws seem harsher to me than to other people, but I can’t imagine being sentenced to twenty years in prison for a marijuana offense.
But that is exactly what happened to Corey Ladd. Mr. Ladd was sentenced to twenty years in prison for possessing just 15 grams of marijuana. In Louisiana, if you have been convicted of marijuana possession three times you can get 20 years in prison. It feels weird even typing that out. 20 years in prison, for marijuana. I don’t care how many times you have been convicted for marijuana, or what amount of marijuana you were caught with, there is no reason you should be serving multiple decades in prison for a marijuana only offense. What a waste of tax dollars. What a waste of a jail bed that should be reserved for a deranged, violent person.
Someone really needs to take a hard look at Louisiana’s marijuana laws and see how much money is being wasted. Louisiana’s marijuana laws result in racially biased practices that have a detrimental effect on the State’s minority communities. According to Dissident Voice:
For example, Louisiana arrests about 13,000 people per year for marijuana, 60% of them African Americans. Over 84 percent were for possession only. While Louisiana’s population is 32 percent black, 60 percent of arrests for marijuana are African American making it the 9th most discriminatory state nationwide. In Tangipahoa Parish, blacks are 11.8 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana than whites and in St. Landry Parish the rate of black arrests for marijuana is 10.7 times as likely as whites, landing both parishes in the worst 15 in the country.
If you live in Louisiana, get active. The only way marijuana laws will change there is if you put the pressure on your legislators over and over again, because Louisiana is not an initiative state. Lobby for an initiative process and align with other causes that also would benefit from an initiative system. Then Louisiana will be ripe for an initiative that reform’s the State’s horrendous marijuana laws.
