The Marijuana Myth Busters Go International


Our Headquarters in the Bahamas

For the past week the Marijuana Myth Busters have been investigating weed culture in the Bahamas. We visited Paradise Island and the Atlantis Resort in Nassau as part of a certain New England University, class of 2011 Senior Trip. One of the promises most of us have made to ourselves is to smoke weed everyday, and we kept that promise while on vacation.

Finding marijuana in and around the resort is not difficult, however it is important to remember that it is illegal in the Bahamas. On the beach, jet ski operators try to peddle their services to anyone and everyone. If you are trying to procure marijuana these are the people to talk to. Beyond that, use your judgement. Don’t give them money if they don’t have anything on them and don’t try to buy weed off of anyone who has a badge. You can smoke in the hotels. Use your best judgement and go out on your balcony when you smoke.

While nearly everyone in the Bahamas smokes marijuana, as we said before it is illegal. You could get away with smoking in public but be careful in the resort. As far as the world outside of the resorts is concerned, there are a few things to take note of. First, as one of the locals told us, anyone who is riding a motorcycle is also carrying a pistol. Don’t let this scare you, but just keep that in mind. Second, if you go to any spot where the locals hang out there is someone there who can sell you some ganja. And, lastly, while the Bahamas is probably one of the safest places in the world to visit, it is not like any suburban town. What this means is that, just think about what you’re doing. Just like anywhere else in the world, people will rip you off if they think they can, don’t let this happen. The other implication is that, unlike America, the police can be bought. As a tourist you could easily say that you did not know the laws and it is likely that your stash will be confiscated by the police. So, for your own sake just don’t let them catch you.

Another good thing to keep in mind whenever you are traveling is to do as the locals do. In the Bahamas the preferred way to smoke weed is out of a Backwoods cigar. If you are smoking with other people, particularly locals, its always nice to share but don’t feel obligated to. People who try to get in on your session without throwing down any money are called crabs, because just like crabs they try to grab at your stuff with their claws. In terms of the product itself, the quality varies. Good weed isn’t impossible to come by, but most of it is grown outdoors or imported from Jamaica, and therefore is not like anything you would get from a dispensary or a dealer in the United States. Keeping this in mind, make a deal with your supplier. Prices are negotiable and grams can be purchased for as low as $5.

While we were there we had one of the lifeguards from the resort bring us to his hang out spot. We purchased 2 grams, 2 Backwoods cigars, and 3 beers for a grand total of $20. When the locals hang out they play dominoes. It’s definitely worth a try to get in on a game, but don’t put any money down on it because the locals are much better than you. After 20 games or so, I hadn’t won a single game. It was probably just because I had never played before, however I was slightly stoned.

So remember, when in the Bahamas, do as the Bahamanians do, and light one up. Jah bless, man. Also, coming soon will be reviews of where and how to smoke weed in other locations around the world. Send us some info or stories about your international ganja experiences if you have them.


Doomsday Rule

Your mind is about to be blown. So, this has nothing to do with Doomsday or the world ending, even though there has been a lot of talk going on about that lately. Speaking of which, apparently the world is supposed to end the day I graduate from college. I just want to know who picked May 21st? And, whatever happened to the Mayans and 2012? What’s the deal?

We’ve been doing our own research in to Doomsday, and here’s what we discovered. Although completely unrelated to our usual field of study, we thought we would share this with you all. So our calendar repeats itself in 400 year cycles, their are patterns between different days, and to make a long story short… The following dates will all occur on the same day in any given year. 4/4 (April 4th), 6/6 (June 6th), 8/8 (August 8th), 10/10 (October 10th), and 12/12 (December 12th). This year, they are all Mondays. There are other days that fit this pattern including 7/11 (July 11th) and 11/7 (November 7th), as well as 5/9 (May 9th) and 9/5 (September 5th). Other days include March 7th and the last day of February. All of these dates are referred to as Doomsdays, and whatever day they fall on in a given year is that year’s Doomsday. So, we know for a fact that Doomsday is Monday. This method was developed as an easy way to figure out what day of the week a given date was in a given year. If you ask the inventor, John Conway, what day of the week your birthday was in 1637, or whatever, he can figure it out in under 2 seconds. Kind of Rain Man-esque, if you ask me.

So, realizing that you are all too high to figure this out, seeing as I barely did. Thank you for reading this far. In regards to Doomsday falling on May 21st, you all better be smoking as much pot as you can between now and then in the case that it actually does. You never can be too safe you know. And, to everyone else who has already graduated or who is graduating soon, Congratulations Class of 2011. You should also be smoking as much weed as you possibly can before you graduate. Remember, smoke weed everyday.
