EATING MARIJUANA WILL GET YOU AS STONED OR MORE SO THAN SMOKING IT! generally it takes longer to take effect and the intoxication will last much longer. Also; eating marijuana can cause much more visual aberrations including full blown hallucinations similar to mushrooms or L.S.D. Most people that eat it usually enjoy it (that is if they enjoy smoking it also) but it is not a good idea for anyone who has never tried it. It is also possible to make tea out of the leaves and stems with similar effects as eating it. The most common way of eating it is to bake it in brownies. CAUTION; EATING RAW UNCOOKED MARIJUANA IS NOT ADVISABLE! first of all, to release the T.H.C. it must be heated (THC is the ingredient in pot that gets you high)secondly, consuming raw marijuana can make you VERY ILL! IT CAN EVEN BE FATAL FOR PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES! also; it will stay in your system for 30 to 60 days (or longer) so be aware of this. It will be detectable by standard drug testing. FINALLY; NEVER CONSUME ALCOHOL WHEN EATING MARIJUANA THEY HAVE A TENDENCY TO REACT BADLY WITH EACH OTHER IN MOST PEOPLE!
