View Full Version : Herbal Marijuana Alternative

Hi. I'm new. Please be nice to me. :D
I'm 27 years old and actually managed to reach this age without ever being offered any sort of illegal narcotic. But from all that I've read/heard/seen, it seems to me that marijuana is a wrongly illegal narcotic. I have vowed that before I die, I will, by golly, try weed at least once. But where the hell do I look for it? I don't have any friends that would have access to any such substance. So I was browsing online and I came across a website that sells herbal alternatives to marijuana. such as Hawaiian Herbal Hybrid, Salvia Divinorum, and others. So what's the deal with this stuff? Does anyone know? It is supposedly legal and natural. Is it actually safe? Does it have any real effect? Is it safer than real marijuana?
Can anyone give me the straight dope on fake dope?

If you want to try it legally, go to Amsterdam and visit the coffeehouses.
My guess is that you will be wasting your money on all the "legal and natural" alternatives.

First, I don't know if marijuana can rightly be called a narcotic- at least not in the way that opiates are called narcotics.
Second, there is a reason that hebal marijuana is legal. IT DOES NOTHING. Real pot (a good variety) is smooth and tasty. The fake stuff is harsh and gross.
Is the fake stuff safe? Probably as safe as inhaling any burning plant matter into your lungs can be, but if you are going inhale, it may as well be for a buzz.
My advice to you would be thusly - if you have managed to live 27 years without trying drugs, you are not missing anything. Continue to be drug free and be thankful that you are avoiding potential issues of a legal and health nature.

Actually some legal stuff is extremley pokey. Salvia Divinorum (particularley the 12X and 15X extract) is very, very strong and a hit of the 15X stuff put my friend, who is a hardened drug user, on his ass for fifteen minutes. I would exercise caution if experimenting with this substance as it comes close to DMT when it is mixed with extract. As for the other legal highs, well who knows, I suspect that most of them are bollocks but Salvia can be very strong. If I were you I wouldn't bother trying it at this stage of your life, you aren't missing much.

Don't waste your money on that herbal crap; and that's all that it is CRAP!!!! Salvia can be a wacky experience, one I would be very leary of trying. It's a weird sort of trippy feeling, or at least the 12x I had was. As for where to get real marijuana, I would say it depends on how liberal a state you live. For instance, from what I have seen it's relatively easy to get in "Medical Marijuana" shops out in California. Also I heard that there are delivery places in such places as New York, but I don't have any experience on that (in fact I am getting that nug of information from the movie "Half Baked"). If you really wanted to appreciate the Marijuana you could always grow it. Yes, you would have to buy lights, fertilizers, soil, and some other stuff, but you would deffinetly appreciate it and know that it doesn't contain anything you don't want it to. I realize this is an incredibly huge risk, and one that someone who has never smoked Marijuana before may not want to take, but it's just a suggestion. Last shot at finding a 50: go to a Phish concert ;)

Muggle46 . Welcome to the board. But please don't ask where you can buy an illegal substance! Consider that a mild warning. The part of your question about legal alternatives is allowable. And I think you got good answers.
saluki-fan. Don't give advice to people on this board about how to go about breaking the law. Consider this a warning.
