Default Wood that gets you stoned

A new wood species has been developed through a genetic modification by crossing it with cannabis sativa. The sap is loaded with THC and burning the wood, and probably inhaling the sawdust, will get you stoned. That means the longer you spend milling it the more stoned you get. It's a good thing this is an April Fools joke by Woodworker's Journal. It would be one of the worst ideas ever.

Woodworker's Journal eZine - From America's Leading Woodworking Authority | Woodworker's Journal eZine

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Guess we'll just have to wait for ZigZag to come out with a new line of rolling papers...

Unfortunately for those who are interested in "woodworking for medicinal reasons", this tree grows at the same speed as cypress - 1" every 47 years on the average. This means that the rare cannabis/quercus hybrid will only be available as a veneer until the year 2061. 1x2's are expected around the year 2100, provided there is good rainfall between now and then in Colorado. This tree has a troublesome pest, however; the pest resembles a human superficially, but is very lazy, cannot keep a job and is often found in its larval state where it is usually in an unkept appearance. They are known to breed like crazy, but very often the offspring struggle to survive because of the parent's inability to cope with real world conditions.

Wow, some of us have some pretty vivid imaginations ! LOL Of course it took a Canuck to think of it. A place I used to work at had a truck driver who told me he was going to retire in a year. I asked him if he won the lotto. He claimed he was 64 years old and I couldn't believe him. When he showed me his drivers license I was dumbfounded. I told him he didn't look a day over 50. His explanation was that he was stoned for half his life so it preserved him.

I think there is a direct relationship between THC and stress for people like him. As the level of one goes up, the other goes down.
