    Last night I took a few hits and played with a buzz for the first time in about 40 years. I liked it. Didn't improve my playing, but it sounded better to me and that's what really matters when you just play at home. For me it has always enhanced my listening enjoyment. That's all I will use it for. Take a few hits in the evening, play for a couple of hours then go to bed. Did seem like I slept a little better last night too.

    Everything in moderation.


    A couple of shots or a few puffs before jamming (just after setting up), and a few more, an hour or so later, seems to describe the better jams for me.


    Always having something lit :420: or pulling from a cooler every other song :beer: makes the quality of the jam go down hill fast.


    We live in a world of excess.
    Take it all. Do it all. Get it all. Have all it Right Now.


    Relax.


    Enjoy.


    and most of all have fun. :band:

    "Hey, watch out, throwing them M-80's near my car."

    I used to know this dude who would say that some music, particularly that of Pink Floyd, is best enjoyed while under the influence of marijuana. I eventually said something about how it sounds a lot like how banging ugly chicks is best enjoyed while under the influence of alcohol. He eventually stopped with his hippie nonsense. :laugh2:

    My neighbor got stopped a couple months ago with weed in the car. No drug test. Went to court. The judge gave him a small fine, ordered to go to a Saturday class, and it’s gone from his record.

    I’m good to go with a thc test. I have my license to smoke. There are rules of course (not in public, not in a car), but as far as having it in my bloodstream I’m good to go.

    I think it was something like who likes to dip their beef jerky into chocolate pudding.

    Including moderation.

    Singing wont likely sound better, unless you're going for a Tom Waits' tramp voice.
