Life Story (background) - go down for question Hey guys, this is my first time on here. I'm a newbie to marijuana, I've smoked a few dozen times over the years (I'm only 23), but still fairly unaccustomed to weed in general. I've never used a vaporizer, only ever joints and rarely bongs. My main reason for wanting to swap to marijuana as a staple is to get off alcohol, I have an accepting social circle some that smoke and others that do not that don't mind smokers being nearby. I pretty much want to smoke when my friends are drinking so we can get a buzz together and be social. I'm partially aware of the health benefits of marijuana to alcohol and only wish to be a recreational user. I'm more aware of the health benefits to using a vaporizer to smoking a dubie or other form of combustion smoking. That's my life story and now to my question I want to get a vaporizer, I can't afford a super high tech one, but I don't mind spending two-hundred odd $AUD on a quality vaporizer that is healthy(for consuming marijuana) and easy to use for a newbie. This will be half personal, half use with friends I'll probably be smoking as often as one drinks socially (my intended purpose) I'm a fairly light-weight user at the moment I may need to transport it occasionallyy Just looking for suggestions on which vaporizer to get, if there is one appropriate for my use. Thanks in advance for replies / advice Euge.
