holds up best in the very group where the commission gathered data.
Lower-class adolescent slum dwellers are far more likely to come to the attention of
formal legal agencies of social control than the middle-class suburban teenager. For the
latter, informal, nonrecord, nonarrest implementation is more likely than for the former, if
caught. Again, it is a certainty that this progression to heroin is most likely among the
slum dwellers, which the authors themselves state, and least likely at the top of the class
structure, which is distinctly underrepresented in official records. The process of officially
recording an individual's illegal behavior is highly contingent on social class,
neighborhood, race, and education, among other contingencies. Official notice, in fact, is
immersed in the very process the authors are trying to explain. The problem is not with
differentials of law enforcement involvement, as the authors imply (i.
, with the New
York Youth Council files Seed Seeds Seed Seed as opposed to incarcerated drug users), but with involvement
with the law at all as opposed to no involvement. In my study only seven respondents
were arrested on marijuana charges, and none was incarcerated. To reason from this
handful of cases concerning the characteristics of the 200 users in my sample would have
led to erroneous conclusions.
The Narcotics Addiction Control Commission survey at least implied that its validity
was stronger in some groups and weaker in others. Another study7 often cited by law
enforcement officers to support their pot-to-heroin claim was conducted among the
admissions to the Lexington and Fort Worth addiction centers' inmates in 1965. Of the
addicts studied, 70 percent had used marijuana prior to their addiction, that is, had
progressed to the narcotics from cannabis.
This is quoted as definitive proof that the
stepping-stone hypothesis is valid. Giordano, for instance, quotes the Lexington study to
support his antipot propaganda. Haslip, too, uses the Ball Lexington research report as
support for the progression thesis. Further, both pieces claim that the addict survey
documents the pharmacological "effects" explanation for the transition to heroin.
What does the Ball article really say? Actually, its argument and presentation of fact is
much more subtle than the law officers admit. The findings do not support the
pharmacological explanation: they refute it. And they do not even document the
progression theory; they qualify it. The main point of the Ball-Chambers-Ball article was
not that 70 percent of all addicts once used pot. It is that where there is an illicit drugusing
subculture, marijuana and heroin will be found as mutual components, making the
link more likely; where there is no illicit drug subculture, the progression is unlikely,

mixture, made from poor quality plants or from the lower leaves of better plants. Stems and seeds are
generally separated out from marijuana by users, as they contain practically none of the desirable
ingredients of marijuana. The seeds are also widely reputed to contain substances that induce headaches
A more potent grade of marijuana, termed ganja in India, consists of the flowering tops and upper
leaves of carefully bred plants. The most potent marijuana preparation, generally termed hashish or,
colloquially, hash (charas in India), consists only of the sticky resin scraped from the tops of mature and
carefully bred plants.
Hashish is often treated as a separate drug, but there is no good scientific evidence to indicate that it is
chemically different. By virtue of its containing far more active ingredients by volume, however, the
user either can get intoxicated with much less hashish than ordinary marijuana or can get more
intoxicated by using an equal amount. Whenever I refer to marijuana effects in this book, I am including
those of hashish.

Techniques of Use
Marijuana is eaten or smoked. Most American users prefer smoking because (1) less marijuana is
required for a given degree of intoxication; (2) effects begin within a few minutes after smoking and end
within three or four hours, as compared to an hour or more for onset and a duration of six to twelve
hours when eaten; (3) more precise control of the level of intoxication is possible, as the user can stop
smoking when the desired level is reached; and (4) more aftereffects and unpleasant effects are
associated with eating marijuana because of the possibility of overdose. Smoking is done by making a
cigarette (commonly called a joint or reefer) or by using a pipe, often a waterpipe to reduce the
harshness of the smoke. The smoke is held in the lungs as long as possible to maximize absorption.
Marijuana is a complex substance and has long resisted analysis as to its active ingredients. The
reader interested in the chemistry and pharmacology of marijuana should see Mechoulam (1970) and
In the last few years one of the major active ingredients has been identified and named
tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).1 Human subjects given synthesized THC under laboratory conditions
report many effects similar to those reported for natural marijuana, and a number of workers feel that
THC may be the only active ingredient in marijuana. Numerous studies of the effects of synthetic THC
on animals and humans are being funded by the federal government. Experienced users, however, insist
that different samples of marijuana differ somewhat in qualitative as well as quantitative effects; some
marijuana has a much stronger sedative effect, some tends to make people very silly, and so on. This
suggests that there are other active ingre

"“Daughter of the White Widow plant. This bio is yet another example of Holland's cannabis breeders' next
generation of Neder-weed. These medium green, smallish buds are so covered with white crystals that they
appear much lighter than really are. Its red hairs are sparse and short. The buds smell a bit mild, citrusy. And

"“Misty (a supposed sister of WW) is thought by many to be a just one of the many different genetic
incarnations of WW, It is said to be a much more stable variation of the WW line."" - Prince Caspian
Misty seeds are strong variety. Short leaves, light green, strong bud, big clusters and very resinous... smells
sweet, and grows very fast. 4 weeks until flowering, 8-9 weeks for full flowering."" -aviyam"
"""On a smoking excursion to Amsterdam last September I got a chance to sample Misty as well as da Widow,
and see both side by side. They look almost exactly the same, side by side, under intense light. One could
easily think they came from the same plant. I saw this in person at Positronics as somebody was trying to sell
the Skunkmaster some Widow as I was standing there, and he compared it to some Misty (the house special) I
had just purchased in the smoke room in back. The Misty is a *fairly* strong plant in my opinion, about a 7 on
a scale of 1-10. Equivalent to a good Northern Lights in potency. The Widow, maybe a little higher but still not
great. This is just my opinion of course."" -SonOfLights"
""10 seeds were ordered from Jocks and all but one germinated using the old paper towel. Germinated seeds
were then planted in rockwool cubes and all 9 sprouted. Last week when I saw them they were about 3-4"" tall
under flouros with 2 lagging behind. (They looked healthy I just think they were the late sprouts.) They were all
working on their 4th node. I forgot how old but I would guess around 12 days. Even at this short height about 4
of them were showing good branching characteristics."" –Ratchet"
""Misty from Homegrown Fantaseeds. It was real easy to grow. Yielded over 2 oz. per sq.' under a 250!!! Tastes
sweet like sugar. Connoisseur quality cannabis. Best I’ve had. Chronic from Serious is great too yields even
better than Misty."
""...The Misty is really sweet. Chunky thick bright green nugs with little delicate deep orange hairs. Lots of bud
mass in the Misty. The Nugs are really fucking green. They're very sticky, and have a taste that is sweet but
VERY powerful. This shit knocks you on your ass, and it stinks. The kind of shit you keep smelling in the car
when I've got a 1/4 in my backpack in the trunk. Yield is way better than average, but not as good as Chronic.
