    It's the paper, mostly. Ruins the flavor and the aroma of the tobacco, because it has this acrid smell to it. If I didn't absolutely loathe the smell of cannabis and the way that it ruins the flavor of tobacco (and everything else), I'd agree that cigarettes are more disgusting.

    Everything that's smoked should be smoked from a pipe. Or at least a natural leaf wrapper. I think more appreciation for the aesthetics of things, over the convenience, would improve much of our drug problem.

    I usually..er..don't...smoke my marijuana through an ice bong or hooka. Makes it so smooth...and sometimes you can even add flavors that mix well with marijuana's natural scent. but it certainly isn't for everyone. I hated it when I first smelled it, but then grew to love it.

    That's how I prefer my tobacco, but every time I start assembling my hookah at a party every idiot within earshot wants me to put cannabis in it.

    There are a lot of flavors I like with my tobacco, but honestly, I can't think of a flavor that would go well with cannabis to improve it. Perhaps a strong mint flavor, but that would be more concealment than anything else. (Of course, I prefer strong mint flavors with my tobacco as well.) Rose petals? Theoretically, if you were to consider doing such a thing, what flavors would you try?

    With marijuana I try using oranges or other acidic type fruits. I tried dousing my herb in 100% grapefruit juice and orange juice. It definitely made it interesting but I doubt many people would like it.

    As for tobacco in hookahs I prefer apple, or other sweet flavors. Perhaps something like a mango or watermelon would be nice if I could find it.

    I prefer mints, flowers, and herbals with mine. Rose, jasmine, licorice, vanilla. I'm not as fond of sweet flavors, especially since I usually have a sweet drink on-hand.

    Ummm... I've seen the gateway drug theory play out in reality. Back when I was in middle school, like 2006ish, my old buddies started smoking pot. They got so infatuated with the drug that they started using it at boy scouts (still better then every morning which they started in high school.) I wasn't interested--probably because of all the anti-drug efforts through my whole life(that stuff really gets ingrained in you) but also my own intuition--but before they went off one of the first times they were trying it at Boy Scouts they tried to convince me to come and that I could just smoke a stoogie or a swisher cuz I didn't want to do pot(Nice structured sentence right there hahaha . I didn't want to be implicated if caught so I didn't go with them...

    Anyway, this is getting too long and I'm too tired to structure sentences. The main kid that smoked too much got caught and kicked out of Boy Scouts. One of my other friends got kicked out of school. Later on in hs all the stoners, basically all the kids I grew up with, started sniffing aderol(some anyway)... I'm talking about doing it for a high, not for study(HAHA! That kid studying? JOKE). Then they ate shrooms, salvia... former kid(kid kicked out of BSA) dips and latter friend(kicked out of grade school) smokes cigs regularly.

    Gateway is no "theory," I mean it when I say I've seen it take place. Call it anecdotal but those kids were just normal ****ing kids, more character and smarter than kids from the East Side but just grew up in a totally different culture where they were very vulnerable to drug use. Oh yeah, and the kid that dips and a few other old friends got caught smoking pot by some cops and were finger printed and ****. Yeah... That ****ing sucks. And think if I had said yes back in BSA and decided to enter into that culture. Happy I didn't do that, to say the least.

    Mostly true, but there are a few parts of your brain that grow new neurons, like your hippocampus. When you learn new stuff (as opposed to refreshing existing knowledge) your brain stores it by growing new neurons.

    Neurogenesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    You know, the scientific rationale for using weed is the biggest load of crap I've ever heard. Have you ever met a stoner? To say that he is increasing his brain power by using that crap is comical. Not to mention that his social skills are basically put right in the ****ing toilet.
