Marijuana ASAP

"Why make a category for everything? The world lives on the brink of destruction, people are as apathetic as ever, and chronological whimsical forms of the structure are the things that are keeping us down. Fuck the system, Fuck the structure, and BY GOD here at Stoner Schematics we say FUCK Categories (...sometimes)."
What is actually occurring in your brain when you smoke cannabis? This question is the central theme of the video above, "Your Brain on Drugs: Marijuana," created by AsapScience, a YouTube Channel dedicated to addressing a new, user-submitted, scientific question each week. For Asap, the answer lies in the psychological, physiological, and fundamental composition of the brain. Any movement, hormone adjustment, or function of the brain is carried out by electrical signals, which are passed between the axon of one neuron and the dendrite of another through chemicals known as neurotransmitters. Essentially, if the neuron is excited by the signal, then it proceeds to pass it down the line to complete the action, but if it is inhibited, the signal stops, ceasing further neuroactivity on that chain.

One High Pilot

"It is a widely accepted fact that cannabis (...and other great hallucinogens) have been linked numerous times to allowing people everywhere; from writers, to artists, and even amongst the most advent doodlers as being a smooth gateway to better and more insightful pieces of art. So take your brush of choice and blow some minds... this is Stoner Art."
armandingo high pilot
Today's submission of Stoner Art on Stoner Schematics comes from a contributor to the subreddit, Baked Art, by the name of Armandingo. The high pilot above first caught my eyes as I gazed upon the assortment of artistic pieces cataloged by Armandingo. Remaining in black and white, the sketch utilizes slight variations in shadowing and highlighting to mimic the hazy smoke escaping the cannabis consuming converted respirator. Like the smoke, the portrait leaps off the page due to the selective use of diagonal strokes on the back of the pilot's chair leading the observer's eye frantically down to the pilot's intricately carved jumpsuit featuring crosshatching to center the viewer's attention. The pilot appears to be perched in the middle of a deep trance, concentrating on the task at hand as he takes a long draw with the same intensity he brings to breaking the sound barrier, enduring high-g turns, and withstanding heavy fire without resorting to pulling the handle to eject, all while saving an aftermath pack of smokes and a stash of sweet cheeba. No, this pilot did not fantasize about being called "Maverick" to fulfill some childhood silver screen delusion; rather, he became a pilot to experience the moment when time stops, when life and death becomes inconsequential, the terrifying sacrifice of trading bipedalism for flight.

The Shotgun

"The utmost lacking feature of the smoking community is a written and understood set of guidelines to adhere to while participating in any circle. We compile these tips, tricks, techniques, rules, regulations, specifications, and guidelines into a category known as: Potetiquette, which is as the name implies: 'Pot' - 'Etiquette'. This category is meant to attempt to unify these instructions, so that every Stoner may start with a pre-conception of the underlying ideals in order to be able to augment them accordingly to their liking."
thick blunt
So, you and your acquaintances have just rolled a massively thick blunt together, but before you keep passing it around the circle until it becomes a roach, consider doling out some shotguns in your next sesh. The shotgun, executed in a variety of ways, is one of the only two-person smoking maneuvers available. I have heard some people say they find it difficult to get high on a blunt, maybe because they are not holding the smoke long enough (around 5 seconds) or they are not taking a big enough hit because of how harsh it can get, but give them a shotgun and they will never complain about that again. Not only is the shotgun smooth, but because of its method of delivery it allows you to take a much larger hit than would be possible otherwise. In fact, I have some cohorts who prefer shotguns to straight smoking in general. Certainly, give a shotgun once and you will have made a friend for life.

I came across this while browsing some forums, it kind of tripped me out after I took a double take. (Click the pic for fullsize)
