Ok, here's what I don't understand. And this comes from a guy who's an occasional user. Why do potent? I mean, in the 1970s you bought pot that came from Mexico. It cost you $20 for a lid, and you had some control over your high. You and a friend could share a joint, and that was enough...just right. Now, all I hear about is how potent it is. I don't want to take on or two hits then find out I'm in way over my head...leaving my heart racing (which I'm too old for now). I get the impression that only buds are sold, and not leaves...the later being what we use to smoke.
Is it no longer possible to get pot that is like it use to be?
