    With the school year on the roll again, my cannabis use has hit the high rollings again. I've been smoking several bowls a day for the past few weeks.

    On the one hand I'm thinking of cutting back, as I'm building up a tolerance to it where I have to smoke a lot to get high, but I also don't feel it's effects nearly as potently if I used to. Does this sound familiar to anyone else?

    Also, how do you afford it? With the amount I've been smoking I'm going to need a job for sure. I usually split bags with my friends, we get 1/8 of shwag for about 20 bucks. For all you stoners out there, would you say spending about 7 bucks every few days on pot is too much, or does that sound about right and easily affordable by a regular job?

    7 bucks every few days isn't all too bad at all.

    hell, 7 bucks a DAY wouldnt be bad at all. the problem is you need to a) get a job and b) dont buy it so often, but buy quality smoke

    it will last you longer than the same amount of crappy pot, it will get you high faster with less smoke inhalation, it will taste better, the high is better, and you'll be doing your lungs a big favor.

    ive only bought pot in canada once, so i don't know for a fact, but for $45 Canadian i got a quarter of some of the better pot i've ever smoked...homegrown, too. lasted me all week. tasted good, smelled good, so sticky the joint went out halfway through no matter what...some seeds and didn't look like too much, but it WAS great. and it was what i was told "wasn't really the best stuff out there, but it will get you high..." for $45 US, however, i can get a quarter of some dried up seedy stemmy low quality pot, and the buds will probably look all smashed from however they were smuggled. if i want really good pot, it's going to cost $40-50 just for 3.5g....not very cheap at all.

    I'll usually pick up a quarter of schwag every week.....fuck its only $20. I'm delivering pizzas five days a week and finishing up my last semester of junior college yet I have found time to smoke three or four bowls a day. I need to find some dro soon because there is nothing like a dro high. I should easily make over $50 tonight in tips....hopefully some dro will come my way later on.

    I can get quarts for 25$ bucks and dimes for 10$. And this shit is pretty good. I got new shit today. But I have not smoked it yet or really looked at it. Soon as my mother goes to bed I will look at it and then smoke it latter. ;)

    I work full time, and am able to stretch an eighth for quite a long time since I smoke only once or twice a week and only enough to feel pleasantly stoned. I also generally only buy chronic (I can afford to wait till I can get good stuff since I stretch my weed), which means more bang for my buck. Chronic is around 50 bucks an eighth, sometimes more if it's really good (got Northern Lights for 70 once, but I think he gave me a bit more than an eighth).

    So, given my frugal ways, even at my crappy stock-guy job I can easily afford my friendly little habit. haha, bought some today, actually, which I shall go smoke shortly :D

    wish i could make mine last that long, man.

    for like the first year or so of smoking i was such a lightweight, even if i did it every other day to once a day. i had a wonderful technique for making the most of it, usually smoked alone, and had an amazingly low tolerance. i could seriously make an eighth last me almost a month, even smoking every day. and this wasn't any kb, either, it was mids.

    Uncle Sam usually gets about 20% or so. You'll lose a good $40 to $50 in taxes.

    Dont you love the weed that makes you feel completely retarded? Then the person actually saying its not the best but will get ya high. This dealer my buddy has he was all like, heres the weed, and it looked primo, then hes like, thats not the best tho, but Ill smoke a joint of my personal withya. And he pulled out bud that looked completely red/reddish tint to it kind of, which lots of lil red hairs, which he said was juicy fruit, and it jus blows your mind.
