this is a good post. as for the topic at hand, it is a step in the right direction. as many here had pointed out, the smell of bud is not enough to
justify search. the smell can easily be mistaken with anything else. i don't need to have the balls to admit that i smoke it, i don't need it
medically, all recreational and what. i don't rob people, i don't commit fraud, i don't steal taxes, i don't declare war on other people, i dont
kill people, i dont have "reefer madness"
reefer madness...sheesh. anyway there are various strains
of bud and alot of them have different, very
distinguishable smells. i once had some purple that smelled a lot like coffee, and was very dank, unfortunately only once. i've had some that smell
like oranges, some like skunk, some like "culo" (means ass), blueberries, some even have smelled like laundry detergent (probably was). this goes
the same if you roll it in a blunt or papers. when you roll it, all you can smell is the swisher or the zig-zag, meaning tobacco because they are
made from tobacco leaves. the only people that can probably distinguish the smell 100%, well 99%, of the time, are those who smoke it. there was a
post earlier where someone used the example of what if the cops smelled it coming from your house, but it was the neighbors. what if? i've had
people tell me, "man, i could smell it all the way from the other block, that's why i came." this is off topic but as for why it is illegal. i
saw a documentary on drugs
the other day on the history channel where they gave the back round
on why drugs are illegal. according to them, marijuana was made illegal because...they said...man i forgot. anyway the link is above. watch it if
you really care. as for me, gotta go hit a bowl.
edit= typos and to say that i might have gotten the wrong documentary, oops! typical stoner, if it is not the one i posted, i'll find it...just
give me a minute or three. but the one i saw said it was because it was getting problematic in the border between mexico and usa. basically, they
wanted to keep mexicans from hanging out and crossing back and forth (there was no border fence) into the usa.
