Mary Jane

I was watching Brothers & Sisters (season 1 episode 14 i think) when the mother was caught getting stoned in the car, which leads me to todays topic …. Mary Jane. 

I always wondered which genius person looked at the cannabis plant and said HEY LETS SMOKE THAT!  I know that its been there since the begining of time, and in the past (a really long time ago unfortunatly) it was used by RELIGIOUS PPL! 😉

I read somewhere that the word Ganja comes from the Ganges River in India.  I read the story in the summer, and I completly forgot it.  But the basic gist of the story is about two Hindu dieties that were fighting on the Ganges or something, one of them gets hit and his blood brings out a cannabis plant.  Which brings the name Ganja…something like that.  Please if anyone can find the story let me know 😛

It was summer vacation (1999), and I was 14, and I had gone to summer camp in TASIS, Lugano.  I was living with 2 italian girls, one dutch girl and one korean girl.  They were pretty cool, I am still in touch with one of the italian girls!  Anyway, I was fast asleep in my bed when I woke up to a really really weird smell.  I asked who ever was awake wat the smell was and she tried to get me to go back to sleep, and then they finally told me that Antonella and Luisa (the english girl from the dorms next door) were on the balcony smoking “marjoooanaaah”.  I freaked out, I didn’t wanna get in trouble, but I went back to bed LOL.  So from that time I knew what marjooaaanaaaah smelled like.

Fast forward to 2005, I was in minneapolis, my friend and I decieded to go watch a movie.  We get into the elevator, and it was pretty crowded in there, when the smell hit us.  My friend (who was on the other end of the elevator), trying to be smart tell me in “arabic”, “Umm Chirp, matshimeeen ree7at hashish” (Chirp don’t u smell hashish).  It got kind of quiet, then the two african american guys started to giggle, yes they giggled :P.  It was the funniest shit ever when it happened. 

It was my last semester in college, and I had just walked into our apartment buiilding after my night class.  As I was walking down the hall way the smell kept on getting stronger, I turned to my friends and I was laughing telling her that it reeked of pot, and those ppl are so stupid.  As I turned the corner to get to the elevator area, I see two cops, the manager of the building and the security of our building standing infront of one of the apartment doors.  Uh-Oh, they are screwed!  Two days later, I walk by the same apartment, and the door was wide open and parents were inside doing some packing … how horribe is that?!  If your going to smoke up, at least do it smartly.
