I used to be roommates with a couple of pothead engineering students. They were named Ted and Bob, and they were both very serious about engineering, and how it could be applied to improve the lives of potheads everywhere. They liked to build bongs and pipes, and while they started out very simple, they became more and more complex over time. These were smart guys, and smoking cannabis unlocked the creative side of them, which they used to build more astounding bongs. The weirdest thing to me was that they didn’t really care about the quality of the cannabis they smoked. They would buy the cheapest ditch weed marijuana, because their focus was on the apparatus, not the weed. They were very generous with letting me use their creations, but of course I always used my own cannabis. I have standards, and I don’t mean I have to have Purple Haze or Blue Dream, I just mean I don’t want garbage weed filled with stems and seeds. These guys smoked the garbage weed, and that stuff gives me a headache, I would prefer not smoking marijuana over smoking low grade marijuana. That said, they taught me a lot about the physics of gravity bongs, and hopefully I taught them a little about the benefits of smoking better cannabis. One day I asked them if they could invent something to test the THC content of cannabis, and they took that as a challenge. They never finished it by the time I moved out, but I still wish I had gotten a way to measure how much THC was in my cannabis.
