Dope will get you through times of no money... better than money will
get you through times of no dope.
It seems to have lots of variations.
Remember when you were 15 and got a beer? You went and drank it in some
dumb place, made a huge deal about it, told your friends stories about
it, and generally did a lot of immature stuff. Now, if you get a beer,
sure, you'll drink it, but unless you've got a problem, you are really
casual about it, you don't drink to get plastered, and you're more
interested in the conversation you're having than the beer itself.
Folks in the Netherlands act like that over pot: they mix it with
tobacco to cut down on the smell and so they won't get "plastered".
Sure, if you hand 'em a bong, they'll hit it, but they are damn sure
gonna finish they're conversation first! Both sides make the mistake of
assuming pot must equal getting plastered.
