Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em

Marijuana withdrawal symptoms and how I fought them on vacation

My girlfriend managed to get me to go with her on an 11-day long trip to a country with absolute zero tolerance towards weed. Needless to say, marijuana withdrawal symptoms got me hard during our vacation in Turkey.

After a year filled with work and smaller trips to several places that have a friendly outlook towards cannabis, it was about that time to go again to some distant country with annoyingly strict cannabis laws and even less access to weed.

Yes, we took an early vacation and went to Turkey as we’ve heard that their beaches are nice, their beer is even nicer and their service is simply impeccable.

All of the above said was true, but the one thing that I wanted to know was how hard are marijuana withdrawal symptoms gonna hit me?

I found out, to my misfortune, that smoking daily for a prolonged period of time and then abruptly stopping is not a great way to start your vacation.

Furthermore, she recorded her album, “Rock Steady” in Jamaica which is sort of ground zero for weed lovers. Why didn’t she just record it in Ohio? Is it because pot isn’t legal there? Just a guess!

Pot nerds love weed so much that they’re driven to learn anything and everything about cannabis. As a result, they know probably too much about weed, and they’re always happy to talk about it, read about it, and of course, smoke it.

The pot nerd’s deep knowledge about weed comes primarily out of an even deeper, more intense love for consuming cannabis. That means that a lot of a pot nerd’s expertise comes from firsthand experience. But super hardcore pot nerds also spend time studying and learning about weed and anything related …
