    Are you in Colorado already?
    Have a hit or two for those of us stuck "behind the curtain". I'll be joining you as soon as I can sell this shithole house which sits on the worst side of an awful town.

    Sometimes I daydream about what it must be like having some of the worlds best weed within walking distance.
    *Sigh*
    Enjoy it bro,and save a hit for me please.

    There are a wide variety of documented uses for medical marijuana. Although you may be fortunate enough to be healthy and use it recreationally, many people depend on a steady supply of cannabis in order to function throughout their day.

    Furthermore, this isn't related to the thread.

    That is exactly the case for many of us. Medical need. We're aware of those 18 YOs with their highly questionable ills taking advantage of MMJ laws of course.......

    The answer to your question is "In California since Novermber 5, 1996". That's the point where "Meds" is (are?) the only legal pot in the state.

    Their ills may be questionable, but many of your medical needs would also be questionable to the authorities where i live,
    The medical uses are finally gaining respect, which i hope continues,
    however recreational use should not be condemned, people who take advantage of the legal protection are wise to do so,

    I can't speak to the laws were you are, I don't even know where that is, but let's be honest here? For at least some there is a legitimate medical use. That has led to the nation's first MMJ laws (here in California) that are carrying the recreational users along.....not the other way about.

    The MMJ users in California kicked the door open for the rest? Decriminalization has been driven by medical users, not recreational.

    Nobody is condemning recreational use that I can see. However, if you read the OP you'll agree with me I hope that it was a slam by a recreational user on medical ones? Not the other way around.....

    I was a OLD SCHOOL RECREATIONAL user in the Mid 70's.
    Quit everything for 30 years.
    I came up with an Illness beyond my control since it's genetic.
    I found that MEDICAL USE of MARIJUANA (CANNABIS) is much better than PHARA DRUGS.

    I have FLOWERS that are INDICAS
    HYBRIDS that have a higher % of INDICA.
    PURE SATIVAS when I want a OLD SCHOOL recreational BUZZ like in my TEENS.

    Please don't hate on the MEDICAL MARIJUANA POSITION.
    It will be legal in the state of CALIFORNIA one day.
    However MEDICAL and RECREATION users a like need to unite rather than be at war with each other!

    This web site would not even be possible without the MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAWS!
    NOVEMBER 5, 1996 is when the tide shifted.

    I agree - we are all here together as vaporysts - regardless of why you use, it really doesn't matter!

    Personally I use for both medical reasons and to get fucked up - MJ has no boundaries!

    Well said,
    I'm from the U.K, the laws here change all the time, it was downgraded to a C now it's back to a B. but to be honest most of our police officers are very respectable and are not just policy enforcers, they decide case by case what should be done for the best, they use their discretion to avoid turning our youth into life time criminals.
    That said i hope as the U.S attitude changes it can begin to rub off on the rest of the governments as the war on drugs is a epic waste of money.

    i have friends who like the idea of vaporizing but they can't commit,
    i first heard of vaporizing 5 or 6 years ago, my experience was a ver damper, and it was too big to use practically, so i continued to smoke,
    then came a iolite, still i wasn't sold, however when i saw the likes of a solo or MFLB i was hopeful,
    now i have switched full time because the products fitted my needs, some people will jump on board when the tech reaches that level for them

    Slowly but surely i will continue to turn them, the benefits automatically appeal to MJ users
    1.Taste
    2.Discretion
    3.Efficiency
    4.Potency
    5.Health

    The developments in vaporizing devices has made it possible for me and many of my friends to continue using MJ in a more healthy way, i hope the developments continue

    My story is actually quite different, so far everyone that has tried my vape-bong loved it. I find for the smokers this is a nice way to get some bong like hits. They are massive and tasty as well. I personally just use icecubes in mine, I find it tastier than water. If anyone would want to get his mates into vaporizing this would be the way to go. It's also fairly cheap especially if you own a bong already!

    I personally use it recreational but as many have said here, we should unite, we all love the herb and that, I believe, is all that matters!

    Having a bad experience with your first vape or two can be a big turn off to vaping. My first vape was a V Tower, by Arizer...a fine company. I didn't like the V Tower. The temp readings/warm up times were inaccurate and I felt like I was wasting herb.

    My second vape was a Volcano. It's easy to use, built like a tank, accurate temp control, and the idea of bags appealed to me. What didn't appeal to me was how much herb I was going through in comparison with smoking. Improving health and cutting DOWN on consumption were my 2 reasons for switching to vaping. My lungs felt great. My wallet...not so much. I tried selling it to some veteran smoker friends. They had tried the volcano before and liked it, but thought it used too much herb and said they would rather stick to smoking.

    Vape #3 was a Pax. It worked well, but was too finicky and high maintenance for me. That piggy went through herb like it was going out of style. I was convinced: Vaporizers using less herb than smoking was an urban legend, a myth.

    Then I heard about log vapes. I decided to give vaping one more try and got an Underdog. It was love at first vape! My lungs AND my wallet felt great. Finding the right vape FOR YOU is essential to your attitude on vaping. Most friends who don't like it had a bad experience their first time.

    Some people may just be turned off to vaping because they havent exerienced it properly, whether its the vape they were using, their technique, how the herb was prepared etc. When I bought my first vape (arizer solo) I had no plans on switching to vaping. It was just another way to medicate. It really grew on me but for some reason i went months with barely vaping anymore. Once I picked it back up I was hooked and its basically all I do now.
    As far as friends go, I had one friend who claimed to hate vaping. I ended up living with this person so he began vaping with me and after I had explained how to properly use it he fell in love with vaping and all we do is vape now. He even just bought his own mflb!

    True, there is always hope. Most people I have known were too much intoxicated to get into vaping.

    A friend of mine, took him years to get it. He still smokes but since a couple of months he got a LSV and it's bonding to his rituals. For him it's still an "appetizer" I told him he should use it all day long and not smoke to understand.

    I've known a few people who didn't enjoy vaping until they were exposed to the X-factor.

    Once they had felt the effects of the X-factor their opinion of vaping changed significantly.

    It's something I named for the effect of instantaneous head change as a suspected result of high CBN percentages in vapor.

    I know one guy who recently tried the genie that is used to smoke although not everyday, and he really felt the difference once he got in his car... what i don't know for sure if it was the high thc vapour, or the high cbn of instant temp change in the herbs, but he said he didn't realize he was that high and now he's extra cautious with it. haha.
