Glass in weed




looks like its spreading, coffeeshops are getting reports of the shit.
I had some really rather unpleasent stuff Last time i was there, Coffeeshops were aware of it then ( that was in Nov)

Grow your own
Why didnt we all think of this?! Next time I visit a country for a few days I will bring a few seeds, soil, and HPS lamp and starting growing in my hotel room. Especially when in Amsterdam.
Ive heard of this here in scotland but not a-dam!! any sign of that BS simply take your money elsewhere people.
explanation please
Stuff I have seen in weed. Rock, Leaves, Pubic hair, a dead spider, Paper, Plastic. You never know what you might get hidden in the center.
personally i would have thought that sprayed weed would not be turning up in coffeeshops as it wouldnt take long for word to get round and then turnover would drop significantly unless of cause all the suppliers decided to do the same. On a street level i would imagine amsterdam has glass sprayed weed just like england, at the end of the day greed pays a big part and adding a third in weight by spraying on powdered crap will keep on happening so long as mugs keep buying it.
Not only is there reports of it showing up in the coffeeshops these reports are saying its originating there as well:

I actually know of someone who has just spend several days in hospital
with breathing difficulties after being "poisoned" smoking some dodgy stuff bought in Glasgow.

That was pretty good reporting. But let's set our priorities straight. What I learned from that report is that English rap groups are stupid for going on TV back to back with the drug czar, when he probably lives two houses over from them, and blabbing about their smoking and god forbid buying habits.

Yeah I heard that deep fried Pizza's & Mars Bars will do that to you. ;)
in London it's very hard to avoid , dealers are forced to buy these buds as they need "something to sell " otherwise people go else where . Also it's very hard to tell if the weed has glass if you don't have a regular suppler.it;s been like this on and off since Sept 06 .

ive been smoking for the last 11year and it has never been this bad , never .

It's getting so bad ..

need to get in with growers .

Great job m8!! sometimes shit bar is the rule rather than the exception here,ps seems you cant get clean/fresh bit of smoke these days without smoking glass or shitbar formula!! no wonder i cut down,no offence m8 just when i saw your howard marks aviatar i thought you were welsh!!.
Yea!! he is a charachter m8!! pure down to earth as well.

No offence taken, I'm not welsh just love what Howard Marks did/does - bit of a hero of mine.
I saw a couple of things on sky & freeview about howard marks!! he talked about sacks full of hash literarly being thrown into his boot by the gypsies in spain!!.

Hey m8 the good times have came to an end here also buddy!! we used to get white widow/blueburry/skunk & even thia,lol seems they have been a drought during the last 12 months & the prices have gone up also!! i had to take bus journey half way across the city for a qtr the other night there & it cost me 20 pounds!! shocking m8 cos i used to get oscar for like 40 only like a year ago,lol funny enough thats when the cops started this weed crackdown here!! seems to many dealers were selling to kids & they were getting stoned in public 24/7.
Yeah, trainspotting did make you look pretty bad, but it must attract some tourist business, revitalize leith a little bit. Plus, it gives a great education on unionism and whatnot, not to mention a little scottish history. I can imagine that scots wouldn't like to have their society painted like that, but trainspotting did start a cool folk movement that's given a lot of artists their inspiration. I see the book being drawn on a lot in English music, which is a lot better than if the musicians are drawing on American culture, at least that way you can call it your own. Showbiz is a drag man.
Most edinburgh ppl were not impressed about that irvine welsh novel/movie back in 1995!! they were big storm as irvine now lives in amsterdam & ppl felt he made us look bad/junkies just to made his book more apealing & make money!!,yes we have our junkies & the weird/wonderfull like most big cities but junkies are in the shaddows 90% of the time m8!! unless you choose to associate with um.
Not many ppl do it (smack) in the streets here as the cops take no s**t m8!!,but i agree with you on the age issue as the users ARE getting younger these days,lol ps trainspotting isnt actually acurate m8!! yea they were hordes of junkies in the 1980`s but they all died now.
Yeah, I've been reading the trainspotting series, I know all about edinburough. When I got back from Amsterdam in 2005, I noticed that everyone had started using heroin in my absence. People were nodding off in the streets. Then all the kids started doing it, and now people are dropping like flies. It's a frightening scene. I blame it on the nazi incursion into showbiz and the growing anti Americanism. I've never done it, took morphine in the hospital once, that's all.

Maybe it's the rich Irish American culture here, but it's pretty easy to avoid dealers that sell garbage here. There's old school standards. I can't imagine the sick twisted minds that would put glass in their weed, and I hope it doesn't catch on here now that half the teenage population is hooked on smack.
Yea the brown (devils powder) is a problem here also m8!! lots of ppl are on it,i know of a few that have somehow managed to kick it & stay clean for like 2-3 years now but the temptation is always around,i am 31 now & ive NEVER tried anything like that & i dont intend to start now.

Was it supposed to be a social commentary on life in Scotland that the rest of the world was supposed to take at face value, or wasn't it Irvine's story about a self centered Rents and his selfish friends that did smack and all that and had a pure jaded outlook on life? Sure, towards the end of the story Bigby and Rents have that talk and supposedly walk by Bigby's dad and he adds some social commentary, as well as Rents brother dying while in the service with more social commentary, but still I thought it to be more about the observations/opinions of the characters rather than a flat out brief of the state of the world in Scotland. Maybe I am just a daft Yank with my head shoved up my ass though. 220, 221.
A friend brought back the book from her semester in Swansea back in 1993. Black jacket with a skull on it as I remember. I could hardly put the fucking thing down - loved the language and the brashness. Then the movie came out and I was truly impressed. It was like Basketball Diaries on a whole 'nother level. The soundtrack is still a cross country driving must listen, and although different in many ways from the book, the movie came out with a concise, shocking, and compelling story. Great stuff. Havent gotten on to the next book yet, but will soon.

I think of the book as a psychological profile of a pure scott, a guy who carries the cross, like gives up his whole life for sanctity, but still represents himself on egoistic level. The rest of the characters are sort of flawed from a religious point of view, but Renton is a very holy character. It's almost like the religion of junk. What redeems the book for me is that it's brash. The sequel, "Porno" is complete trash, not that there aren't good things in it, but it's mainly just trashy. But hey, as fallout boy says "We're painting your trash gold while you sleep."
Getting back to the original post: What is "glass in weed"? Is it literally some glass in the weed, or does it mean some cheap junk which someone sprayed with chemicals to give more of a high?
