I got all excited for a minute until I saw the m.
Seen this thread title and thought "ya dancer! Just what i need!"
Disappointed to find no mention of Vick or Olbas Oil or anything like that.
Oh well my sniffles remain....
It's not called "smelling" it's called snorting
Part of my commute is the 'cyclist's bridge' over the railway line near Cambrdge station and as it's enclosed, you often get a strong whiff of it there. I only wish I knew where they get it from as I could do with a spliff or two myself!
Same here chaps! :-) Don't mix in the right circles anymore :-)
Am I unusual? I have no idea what it smells like
Unless you live somewhere truly remote like Antarctica, you almost certainly DO know what it smells like, you just don't know what that smell is! It really is nearly everywhere now and it has a very strong and distinctive smell. Go for a walk in any town centre in the UK with someone who knows it and get them to identify it for you!
Even worse, these car drivers don't pass the duchies to the left hand side, greedy beggars.
Although a non smoker, and for that matter a non-toker, I do rather like the smell of, umm , "herbal cigarettes". Unlike tobacco smoke which is filthly stuff. That said, having had the odd puff in my youth it just made me feel dreadfull, but hey ho. I'll stick to beer as that agrees with me, at least on moderate quantities.
You smoke beer spliffs?
you can use a flat beer in a bong ...... well you can use a fizzy beer but the results are very different ......
Found a corner of a field in Kent full of the stuff a couple of years ago. The leaves looked familiar so I picked one and took some photos and showed them to a friend who knows this kind of thing and they confirmed it. I still wonder though whether it was commercial hemp that I saw.
Plenty down by the canal on my commute, although now it is dark and I use the roads, I don't see them as often. Not out in the mornings.
However my job may involve drugs and alcohol testing, and since drugs stay a lot longer in a bloodstream, I'm loathe to indulge in too much passive inhaling. No doubt someone will reassure me as to the quantities needed to fail a test, but for the moment I'm being a tiny bit careful.
Flatbed 10t Scaffolding lorry this morning at 7am, seriously wtf. Apart from driving like it no way would I want to put up scaffolding puffed up?! I saw on the Police programme they now have a roadside mouth swab for Cannabis and Opiates which I was not aware of.
my commute is mostly on a segregated cycle/foot path and i get the occasional wiff of weed... usually from lightless hoodies riding no handed. Of course i do the decent thing and keep a safe distance, just far enough to get maximum inhalation without invading bubble space.
