The audience: family, including 80-something mother who has a drink or two every evening before dinner, may drink a bit more on special occasions/parties (not meant to imply that alcohol is problem); 50-something brother and sister-in-law who are virtual teetotalers—she, because she "doesn't want the calories" and I guess he's keeping her company (they don't socialize much as a couple).

My friend was driving a borrowed truck last summer and was pulled over because the police suspected the contents of the pickup were stolen (they were not). Friend was carrying a couple of pills (controlled substance, for which she had a prescription, though not on her) - those were confiscated. The truck was impounded, later retrieved by the owner. So, it's 6 months later... [more inside]

I'm a moderate pot smoker to help with my insomnia and back pains. My local medical marijuana dispensary is selling stellar kief at great prices (less costly than pot, even.) I love to 'snowcap' my bowl of herb with kief, but lately I'm thinking maybe I should skip the herb and just burn the trichomes. My current glass pot pipe isn't going to do the trick - what's the best pipe these days for kief? Anyone switched from herb to just kief? Experiences? Drawbacks?
how much does marijuana cost these days? I haven't bought it since 1983 or so. I'm not planning on buying it now, I was just curious since I know the price has gone up a bit since then. I'd like to know how much it would cost, roughly, from a local dealer in the NYC area. Thanks.
So I have seen that the hive came up with some really good answers as far as WHAT to eat when the post-herbal munchies attack. But what (if anything) can PREVENT the munchies from happening at all? And while we're discussing that, perhaps someone can explain why they happen in the first place...

I'm going to be starting up a new research agenda on the economics of marijuana policy with an undergraduate student this fall, and I'm looking for materials which can help both me and my student navigate through the legal jungle that is US marijuana policy. I had a few questions. [more inside]
If anything, what do the police do to prepare for what (I imagine) is a whole lot more criminal activity in one day. [more inside]
A friend is planning to travel in the US by air in the next couple of months, and is planning on carrying one or two "joints" with her. What are the risks for my friend?
