"Be embraced, Zig-Zags and Ig Bambu, sold for “tobacco use only!”
This joy is like an Amsterdam Coffee shop!
Bros! Put on 'Dark Side of the Moon'
A loving friend would pass the Funyuns.
Do your hands also seem huge, world?
Seek more Funyuns, and please put on Dark Side.
We must talk about the ending of Interstellar, but probably later."
The next time you are in Amsterdam, the modern day mecca of all things marijuana, take a look in their coffee shops. The patrons of pot aren’t using tin cans or Volcanos to puff, they are doing it through rolling papers. These coffee shops should be a shining example of light drugs done right; treated like a social experience -- like bars! -- and enjoyed responsibly. The joint makes it easy for you to gauge and (if needed) limit your intake. Passing around any other smoking device just doesn't have the same effortless sang-froid, or practiced reliability. Friendships are forged, bonds are strengthened, and navels are gazed -- all in a good way, of course -- over the joint.
It's really the perfect smoking device: stripped down, portable, classic, quintessential, sleek, handy, potent, and beautiful. It does exactly what it is designed to do, nothing more, nothing less.
Blessed are the humble joints. They are the warm, welcoming center of the marijuana-verse. May we all aspire to fly as high as they do.
Joints, beautiful spark of Gods!,
