Sheep. You're infringed upon every day and you let something as frivolous as Mary Jane convince you to start this thread.

Well, I can't do anything about it - you might start even smelling it more on the streets as time progresses. I guess you will just stay inside?

I can dealt with it 100 times more than I can cigarette smoke. Every time some blows their cigarette in my direction is sends in into a coughing attack.

If you kept getting high on diarrhea every day I'm sure that would eventually start smelling good to you too. Eventually you'd be kneeling over public toilets taking deep breaths all day long

Lol....u sure talk a lot of diarrhea.

I'd rather breathe marijuana smoke than Manhattan traffic fumes, or cigarette smoke for even that matter.

Either way, you're gonna have to get used to it. Finish venting, cause I have nothing more to say about it.

I smell it rarely compared to past years.
It doesn't annoy me any worse than cigarettes but I despise the air pollution of multiple fireplaces. On the UES, on those certain days just cool enough for fireplaces but not for central heat, the air can be choking. Also at Xmas time when the fireplace crowd thinks it mandatory to have a yule log smelling up the city.


Actually, smoke from any burned vegetation, marijuana, tobacco or wood, is rife with carcinogens. You don't want too much lung exposure to ANY of them.
<Oh, BTW, this afternoon and evening we are under a Pollution Alert, abetted by 90 degree heat.>

I actually enjoy the smell. I wish NY would follow Washington and Colorado. I would like to purchase and smoke occasionally if it was legal.

I don't know why people smoke it instead of using the vaporizers that are available nowadays like Pax and G-Pro etc. It has to be way less carcinogenic given the combustion difference.
Plus it just doesn't stink so much.




The smell is sorta acrid. Not a fan, but still better than cigarette smoke.

Tis true about the increased MJ smoking. I don't like the smell. I am from the caribbean island notorious for MJ. The weed that they smoke here smells completely different like it is laced with something or coated with something. I don't smoke. However, I used to prefer the smell of MJ over cigarette. Not this MJ that they smoke here.

They need to get the good organic MJ grown in the cool mountains of an island. Not this rancid stuff they smoke here.
