"It's about the BHO's, the dabbing, the wax, the shatter, the shake - the getting really fucking HIGH."

A sentence from a post to a weed page pitching a bitch about the fact that
*genuinely useful* info about the medicinal properties of the various
strains of weed is not available from the average "bud-tender" at the
counter. It contains pot-jargon that's new to me and perhaps to others who
were already in their 30's in the '60's and are now too old to keep up and
to whom mention of THC calls to mind arthritis and glaucoma, rather than
the pleasure of getting totally fucked up.

The new-to-me words can all be found - more or less, some meanings being
still somewhat labile; the serious student will want to do his own
research, naturally - in the UD, with a trivial amount of effort.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
