Dude, these nuggs are like totally enriched

21 August 2007

A few days ago, in the post about vampire bat breath, I pondered:

Oh those stable istopists what will they drop into the mass spec next??

Well, now we have our answer.

That’s right, reefer, herbage, kali, slang tang, chronic, da shiz, cheeba, kronic, the danky dank, ganja, I could go on but I won’t.

Every so often, a package of marijuana arrives in Jason B. West’s mail at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. While Dr. West may not be the only one on campus receiving deliveries of illegal drugs, he is probably the only one getting them compliments of the federal government.

Dr. West’s marijuana supply is decidedly not for consumption. It is meticulously cataloged and managed, repeatedly weighed to make sure none disappears, and returned to the sender (a laboratory at the University of Mississippi) or destroyed when he is done with it.

But, you just know they’re shotgunning the ICPMS.

Dr. West said his involvement in the project was not tied to any particular policy judgment. “I strongly believe that part of the picture in any policy development has to be the best possible science, and in cases where my work can contribute to that, I think that’s great,” he wrote in an e-mail message.

Yeah, whatever, narc.

    seriously, it seems like the cannabis plant is built for the intelligent, inquisitive, imaginative, ect. mind. Not only do my senses, reasons, intuitions, and imagings expand on marijuana, I also understand your science so much more. There is something it does to your logical faculty that makes you understand. your reason couldn’t before using your imagination while high and I am hearing in addition of expanding the senses it also heighten the abilities of the left and of the right side of the brain. And it makes science so much more transcendent (as well as the natural world) that so many people lack unlike alcohol. finally, it doesn’t really make you slow, stupid, and doesn’t kill brain cells (although looks can be deceiving. 😉

    But the only scientist I have ever heard who at least takes in pot is Carl Sagan. I think he did do a good job in his career helping show the public that the wonderful world is science. I think Einstein did some too, although I don’t know for sure. also not all people in USA military are with billy the goat, there the one’s who are giving the baddies problems today,with whys and why nots, whether in army or police,fire brigade or politics,,these people’s stories you must take into consideration,they will be protected by the one most up high if they took my post into consideration,bless you,for they would silence you if you did.
    above all,and most of all..its not over…man will see and suffer before this is all over,you must understand people,things are never what they seem, its not about money,its not about power,its not about having fun…
    ..its about serving a false alien who wants to be god, i believe you call him the devil, these are the days which are worse than noah’s days….(try and read,if you could find,the writings of henoch),this false god has given certain people through out the years immortality,this is the corrupts man’s goal,who bow to him,anyone who is involved with evil ways and did not get immortality are what you call small fry,haha!
    Anyway,i must leave, BUT not without giving you hope..and the hope is to pray to Jesus Christ for your sins,and repent,for the kingdom of God is at hand. only Jesus Christ shall you pray to,not mary,not a church,not a priest,not even your good deeds,just pray,in silence,to the real church which you carry,its called your body,and be warned after this your real battle begins,lift up your heads,and accept that Jesus Christ died for us….
    ..And No Great Laser Will Touch You…
    ..and even more,HELL WILL NOT BE YOUR OUTCOME,
    God Bless You All…and don’t forget the little sign of the cross the the great laser left you after the towers fell..
    …straight down,on top of the rubble..its become a famous picture,to the true christians and the false.
    The Spartan.
    Live to Die,Die to Live.

    Hi Ben, it’s nice to hear from you. Here’s the lyrics to the Minutemen song God Bows to Math, which is the best reply I can think of right now:


    In the tombs of Enoch,

    in the queen’s chamber

    she lived guarding a holy cubit

    god given accuracy

    measuring untold prophecies

    how she loved that sacred inch

    Sorry for almost setting your living room on fire that one time. I hope we can meet up soon, I don’t think I’ve told you that Rough Cuts of the Arroyo is one of my favorite songs.

    You know, the article doesn’t say exactly how this fellow is destroying his surplus. Given his admitted history of human fractionation studies with controlled substances, I’m guessing it’s by the quarter-ounce…

  4. Neil Says:

    Hmm…good point. Burning it would surely do the trick.

    i don’t know, maybe ben is right. but uh, seriously, i don’t know what he is talking about. the apocalypse? i just explained to neil how i feel that the world is fucked up because the probability is greatest that it would be, because the more fucked up the world is, the higher the birthrate, the higher the probability you’d be around to see it like this. ie, all fucked up.
