Teen Pot Trend: Popular Pot Smoking Methods

The following are popular forms of smoking and some terms people use when smoking pot:

-Joint: Putting weed in rolling paper sometimes with a ‘filter’ made of cardboard, (looks like a handrolled cigarette).

-Spliff: Half tobacco, half weed joint usually in a modified cigarette or with rolling paper, often used to cover the smell of the marijuana.

-Bong: A long cylindrical glass jar where the marijuana smoke is inhaled from the canister.

-Pipe: There are small and big ones, it is basically a tobacco pipe for weed.

-Bubbler: A type of handblown glass pipe that has a ‘pouch’ for water so that the marijuana smoke filters through the water as it ‘bubbles.’

teen-pot-smoking-methods-Vaporizer: A way of smoking weed without smoke. This machine heats up the marijuana so just the THC is burned off in a vapor and inhaled. (minimal smell and better for the lungs).

-Edible Stuff: Brownies, cookies, I have seen truffle pasta made with the oil from cooked pot.

-Hookah: Many teens now go to cafes or bars where there are hookah’s with flavored, usually fruity tobacco. Teens can buy their own hookahs and add pot to the flavored tobacco, which covers the scent.

-“Medicinal:” If teens can get their hands on a marijuana prescription then they can eat marijuana energy bars, pills and chocolate infused pot.

    Hookah is something new to me. Marijuana has been around a very long time and it seems there is no way our kids can get around coming in contact with it one way or another. I just hate it is so easy for our kids to obtain it. Today we struggle so hard to provide the best for our children, we as parents struggle so hard with the perpetrators that come into their lives.

    alright look, marijuana is not by any means the most harmful thing that a teen could be doing. I am a teen who has recently started smoking marijuana. i never had before, becuase i had been deluded by that whole smoke and mirrors shit show that parents and teachers had shoddily thrown up around me. smoking is less harmful to your body and less dangerous than drinking if done using common sense, and it is less likely to put a teen in danger. it is important for a teen to understand however, that marijuana can interfere in some aspects of their lives, and need to know how to prioritize to make sure that they dont get in legal trouble. and to you “admin”, there are also a lot of adults who smoke marijuana, and most people who smoke arent bad people at all, in fact some of the best, nicest, and friendliest people i know smoke marijuana. to condemn all marijuana users for doing something that isn’t nearly as harmful as you claim it is, is grouping them all into a class of criminals into which the majority of them do not fit. your posts are both biased and angering to people with knowledge and any experience on the subject. i hope that you re-evaluate your arguments and see that your website is really just an outlet for all of your biased, irrational, and incorrect frustrations.

    Marijuana was criminalized for many reasons, mainly for racism against africans, mexicans, and chinese. It was used in propaganda that fueled racism in our country in ads that depicted “your” child with african americans getting high. I believe that before people create an opinion on ANY matter, they should do some research first instead of blindly and ignorantly opposing something. Marijuna has been proven to reduce cancerous cell growth, reduce cancerous tumor size, discourage production of cancerous cells, prevent alzheimer’s (I know, ironic) and help people with chronic migraine problems (such as my friend) live happy, normal lives. I know many people who smoke weed as do I, and none of them fit the current stereotypical pothead. They are kind, normal dressing, normal speaking, intelligent, college attending, active and lively people who would never harm anyone or themselves for any reason. Marijuana is a thousand times less toxic than alcohol (literally, studies prove that in order to reach a toxic level of THC, you need to smoke 1000 joints in under an hour.) Also, THC is proven to increase our brain’s ability to put out beta-waves which are associated with creativity and relaxation. And about that nonsense with losing your short term memory? Yeah, as long as it’s in your system, you have a diminished short term memory, but that can easily return to you once it’s left your system (which can be up to a couple months.)

    I don’t smoke (yet), but I believe that possibly in the future that I will. A lot of my friends have recently started getting high on basically anything they can get there hands on. It has CHANGED them completely, when they’re high they aren’t there. Drinking I believe isn’t as bad when drinking responsibly but SMOKING changes!!

    I am so sick of mothers like you, all you are is ignorant. First off, hookah is not a “marijuana smoking device”. Hookahs are made for shisha, a flavored tobacco. Smoking marijuana out of a hookah ruins it. The resign clogs the pipes and its almost impossible to clean it out. I mean sure, you can smoke out of a hookah, but you can smoke out of a pop can too. So you might as well put pop cans up on your page. “pop can- marijuana smoking device that once rendered destroys children’s minds and turns them into flesh eating monsters who will inevitably destroy society.” put that one up there MOM. Ok, now that i got my rant out its time to lay out the facts. This first on goes to KATHY, “Drinking I believe isn’t as bad when drinking responsibly but SMOKING changes!!” According to msnbc, (one of your mommy trusted sites) 75,000 deaths occur in the us alone due to alcohol. Now lets look at how many for marijuana (the devil), uhhh, let me see, uh, oh ya! i cant find any records because there has never been a marijuana related death. Its simply not possible to die for marijuana. Wait a tick, whats that you say? you say its a FDA approved drug? but that doesn’t make any sense Kathy said its worse than alcohol. WRONG!! Now, feeling pissed off mommys? Well believe it or not its a great plant! I know your not listening to a thing I’m saying because your close minded, but its Ok I know I’m right! Do some research…. apart from what your moms told you, because they too were wrong. Check it out, ScienceDaily (Apr. 17, 2007) — The active ingredient in marijuana cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies. So please, get off your couch, stop watching your Beloved Opera and Dr. Phil, Go out into the world and do something real, make something of yourself and stop bashing life saving medicine.

    So basically, I think that weed is totally not an issue. I mean aside from it being illegal, the most that is going to happen to you is an extreme case of the munchies. I have alcoholic family members and it’s possibly the most destructive thing I have ever seen. AND THAT IS LEGAL! I also have family members that smoke pot. Mellow, calm, easy to be around. i wouldn’t suggest driving on it but smoke, chill, fall asleep, play video games, eat, what’s really the problem here? Is it a “gateway drug?” I think that alcohol is going to make you want to do other drugs more than weed does. I mean, after smoking weed, most people are pretty content with just being high. Yeah, I’ve done drugs, lots of different drugs, but it was an experimental phase of about a year and I would NEVER touch them again. But, I do not see the problem with weed. It’s not addictive, it’s not going to do anything a cigarette wont, it’s a great stress reliever. I don’t know how legal I want it to be though. I wouldn’t want extremely inflated prices, the law should basically be that of alcohol as far as how to go about smoking it. In home and designated areas. The issue is, the government will not want people growing and selling without a permit and that will cost money and so on, and basically there is no happy medium. So, keep on smoking and sticking it to the man because weed does not make you a bad person, only personality can do that.

    Weed really isn’t that bad, like many people have said before me. It hasn’t killed anybody. For those who bash it simply because it’s a “drug” and because of the things they have been told, you should really do some research before you start throwing things out there and getting all of your information from above the influence. Weed does not kill brain cells, it’s been proven. Smoke isn’t the greatest thing for you, but hey, neither is cake.

    I heard the declaration of independance was written on hemp paper .. I could be wrong, but I find that ironic.

    I’ve been told numerous times that substances kill families. This is very general and I wish I could stop people from saying that. For example, it’s obvious that two parents who have an absurd drinking habit can easily screw up a household, but people like to generalize this statement and say the same about cannabis. Well, I’ve been smoking cannabis for several months now after I have been told specifically by my parents that I shouldn’t, and just a few weeks ago, I found out that my own father also uses the drug. For me, smoking has not been induced by my parents and I’ve grown up for 19 years without even knowing my father does it too, and I live a normal, happy life. If anything, this has brought us closer together. It’s something that should be accepted more, as using it in a smart manner, maybe once a week or so, does not change who you are and only holds short-term effects. In parting, I would like to quote the words of my wise ol’ dad: “POT IS AWESOME.”

     So you’re saying you smoked pot as a kid, experimented with some other drugs when you got a little older and now that you’re an adult you have a career and a family? I’m really not seeing the horror of drugs in this statement. You sound more like a tool grasping at straws in an attempt to give your two cents over the internet with nothing to back it up but “mark my words!” which is worth, oh, absolutely nothing.
