I feel you on the "Bong Betrayal", it's never been a friend of mine, always creepin' around, sneakin' up on me, and catchin' me when I'm not looking for it to happen. The hot box thing, I may have done a form of in Jr. High School, girls bathroom, sneaking a cigarette because it was winter in the N.W. I've only been smoking MMJ for maybe less than 2 yrs?
I paid $100 for a half oz of garbage. It's so bad that people get mad if you try to give it away. The guy I got it from grew it and he's old and can't tell the difference between weed you can smoke and stuff that just needs to be thrown in the garbage. It gives you a headache, no buzz, hurts your lungs and leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Imagine weed with no thc or flavor and it hurts to smoke it. I would never do that to my friends. If it's bunk shit I tell them first. Had to go to Miami Dave for better stuff. It was a 10/10 perfect stinky hard nugs. 2 puffs and you're stoned.
