Quote Of The Day - Admirable Restraint Edition

"Anyway, before, I used to smoke maybe a quarter-pound a day. Now it's more or less like two ounces a day. It's drastically dropped off. It's more controlled. It's more, you know, casual."

Snoop Dogg commenting on his marijuana smoking habit from an interview about his long term goals and new business interests. Just a few months prior to this interview he had claimed to have given up weed for good saying, "I get high on life now." Informed sources tell us that a quarter-pound would be on the order of 100-120 blunts a day...

Of course if 100-120 blunts a day isn't casual, I don't know what casual is.

I don't wish him any ill will. However, I have to assume someday a doctor will be looking at this guys chest x-ray's and saying holy-sh...... Burning leaves and sucking it into your lungs is a bad idea whether it's tobacco or marijuana. A quarter pound a day!!!

Steve L.:

Let's do some math. A quarter pound is 4 ounces and will make 100 blunts. He's down to 2 ounces, so that would be about 50 a day.

That's waaaaaaaaaaaaay better.

deadrody:

Patently ridiculous. First, let's explain that "blunt" us a cigar sized mj cig. Huge, get it ? Assuming Snoop sleeps 8 hours a day, which, regardless of how close to a QP he smoked or is smoking, is almost inevitable. So, in those remaining 16 waking hours, there are 960 minutes, meaning 100 blunts would be one roughly every 10 minutes. And I got news for you, smoking a "blunt" would take a single person about 10 minutes. Even if you assume they're the average self rolled joint, ain't nobody got the time to smoke a hundred of them a day.

So what is being suggested here is that Snoop sleeps 8 hours, then continuously smokes mj for the next 16 hours straight, before, again, retiring to bed.

Please.

A quarter ounce is generally enough mj to supply a modest group of say 4-5 for a solid weekend of fun. Doing the math there, Snoop is smoking in a day, about 80 times the mj of the average hardcore stoner. That would be the equivalent of a hardcore group of drinkers getting by on a quarter keg of beer in a weekend, but a single all out drunk drinking 8 of them himself in a day.

I think Snoop is trying to make foolish crackers look, well, foolish.

smoked2joints:

Does that include keeping his possee high as well? He must be smoking bammer (mexican) cause if he was puffing the humboldt he would not be able to light the lighter after joint #2. And even if he was smoking the lowest of low quality joints that amount would obliterate a single person. Not that I would know or anything....

Light to moderate smokers yes, but I've seen people who can go through a quarter oz. per day by themselves. Of course Snoop's probably talking about what he goes through, what with 20 or so people hanging around him all the time, not what he smokes personally.

kgowen:

I've been out of the drug culture (or for that matter, any culture) for over 25 years now, so I am completely ignorant of these newfangled units of measurement. So is a "blunt" supposed to be equivalent to what used to be called "joints", or is it some kind of monster stogie? Either way, Mr., uh, Dogg's intake sounds impossibly excessive.

Now, back in the old days...

The sad part is that this is what is used to fuel the backlash against most blacks. Maybe, its just me, but as a black person I find it pathetic that Snoop can sit and casually talk about his weed intake and for some strange reason he's up on the screen doing ads for T-Mobile. Wow, welcome to the devolution.

RobH:

For Blunt, think Phillie or WhiteOwl blunts. You split it down the side, dump out all the tobacco that isn't the wrapper, pack it with your favorite weed, lick and overlap the seam like a cigarette paper. You endup with something about the size of one of the mini cigars but large than a swisher sweet. Plus they now come in strawberry, banana, mango, chocolate, etc., flavors.

Last Friday my youngest daughter took her behind the wheel driving test ... and passed (whew, no more kidlets to teach driving to..am I glad ..but I digress)... she's driving me home when she pipes up "hey mom, wanna drive by Snoop Dog's house."

"Huh? Wha...?"

"Snoop has a gorgeous house in Claremont. Wanna see it?"

I politely pass on the opportunity while still struggling to wrap my brain about Snoop Dog living, in all friggin' places, Claremont, CA. -- home of Claremont Colleges, a town that won't allow any fast food chain or Foothill Blvd (Route 66) to be widened least they loose their ivy league village charm ... where "night life" could be a string quartet recital at Claremont-McKenna...

Claremont?
