It is known that such South Asian cities manage to sell the cheapest marijuana in the world, approximately priced from Rs100 to Rs500 for a gramme of lower quality.

GOATMAN showed me a whole brick he bought from some place in Karachi for just a few Rupees. He said he was nice enough to share it with the ship's crew.

The largest swaths of cannibis indica in the world are located in Pakistan.

Nice.

Cannabis Discovered in Prehistoric Tomb

worldnewsdailyreport.com

Archaeologists excavating a prehistoric site in the Hindu Kush mountains, have discovered what could be the most ancient proof of intentional use of a psychoactive substance by humans. While searching the site of a Paleolithic settlement estimated to be 120,000 years old, scientists discovered seeds, resin and ashes, associated to the indica subspecies of the cannabis sativa plant.

I'm surprised that NYC and LA are similar but still higher than Toronto. I wonder where Vancouver would fit in?

Looks like North Americans are the big consumer.

Around the same time your mother kicks you out of her basement.

They promised.

Did he really? You met Goat back in the early 80's when he was touring with the USN? I'm impressed.

No. I've never met him in person.

He carries a picture of that brick of hash which he emailed. Apparently thinking of that brick brings happy memories.

I lived in Karachi for years and I still don't know where to get weed from.

GOAT was there for hours only and he walked away with a huge brick of hash.

I guess the USN really does teach navigation.

Confirms something I've thought about you for awhile: you're some sort of snitch/informant. With the punishments in Pakistan, I'd imagine the outlaws have a keen nose for your kind. You radiate "anonymous source".

The story goes that some AF officer at the start of the Afghan invasion came across a village near the Pak border that had been inbreeding a particularly greasy strain for hundreds of generations. He was from San Diego, took some seeds, and started The Cali Connection. The original seeds he brought back were called Alien Technology and sold for 1K each on THCbay years ago. And if you get a strain that has some variation of 'alien' in the name (and some that dont like green crack, green knuckles) they are descended from that Afghan stock.
There is a research team in Oregon trying to match the genetic codes of plants to their name, so you can say this Blue Dream is actually Blue Dream because patents for strains are right around the corner. He says those original Afghan seeds constitute a 'new' classification, Indica Afghanica, and has remained unchanged during the entire evolution of Indica Indica strains which range from the equatorial varieties we wrongly call 'sativa' and the more temperate varieties we call 'indicas'.

#16 He probably runs a 120% cheque-cashing place or a rent-a-center owned by his father. Some business whereby he can ---- his fellow citizens to his hearts delight.

The Canadian monarchy definitely smokes more than the Englanders, imo. They don't waste time with tea.
