Don't really know if this article belongs in IMO or not, but it could lighten the mood a little....But this being IMO, I figured a debate will ensue.

Well, at least it won't cause Mad Cow Disease. Could be safer than some of the other stuff they're fed!

I must agree here - and it might even have the added benefit of mellowing out the world a little bit. But we should probably alert the bakeries and fast food joints ... there could be mayhem.

I ran into someone who lived in Russia for 6 years. He said that the story is highly unlikely. His reasons were that people needed precious land to grow food and wouldn't waste it on pot; most folks were poor and couldn't afford pot; beer and vodka were so inexpensive; over the counter drugs were cheap. So, I researched this as an urban legend, but didn't find anything.

Has anyone here been to Russia? What do you think?

Reuters is pretty reliable when it comes to news. I still believe it.

I have been to Russia and I don't know who the guy is that you run into?

Well, that's ridiculous. Pot would bring more profit than any food, just like in US.
Everybody knows that.

I don't know the guy. He's an aquaintance of a friend. I'll have to find out more about him. He also said he asked about pot while there and never found any. Maybe he just didn't meet the right people.

When you were in Russia, did you see or hear of any pot?

With the decline of the Soviet Union, the drug climate in Russia has increased substantially.

The most popular drugs in Russia are home-made heroin, marijuana, amphetamines and hallucinogens. Cocaine is not used widely as it is difficult to obtain, just as morphine and some other medicines. (Drugtext Foundation)

Another interesting tidbit (it seems that alcohol in Russia is the almighty drug)

**The World Health Organization considers an average per capita consumption of the equivalent of 8 liters of pure alcohol a year to be a sign of a country with a dangerous level of alcohol consumption. Russian consumption is currently in the range of 13 to 14 liters annually. (TIME magazine, August 11, 1997 article)

**In the United States, 300 to 400 people die of acute alcohol poisoning each year. The Russian figure: over 30,000. (TIME magazine, August 11, 1997 article)

No, I haven't seen any pot. But then I haven't seen any pot growing in US either, so what does that prove? Nothing. And unlike that guy, I haven't been asking around about pot. But I tell you what-you couldn't buy anything with poppy seeds in Russia. Because poppies can be used to make opium, they are illegal.

Yes, it's not that uncommon to see someone passed out on the street from alcohol consumption in Russia.

Nothing - just curious. I don't see it grow around here either, but I do see evidence that it does.

Hey, I see that when I walk out my door here.

However, the best hangover recipe I know I got from a Russian woman:
Pickle Juice!
Nothing beats it..She gives a big homemade jar to me every year on my birthday

I sure wouldn't need that. But I do know how to make pickle juice.

such a weird hijack to a thread but I shoulda put this in the "weird food" thread...
I LOVE drinking pickle juice or sauerkraut juice daily. Its like my snack at night..
Everyone thinks I will get ulcers..
But no, its not just for hangovers...

But, I am curious...how do you make it without pickling the actual cucumber?
It would be cheaper than buying the pickles and not eating them

I make it by pickling the actual cucumbers. I love pickled cucumbers, so they aren't wasted.

I would like to try that meatloaf! (or burgers or hotdogs or whatever) So I dont eat red meat, but I do drink lots of milk. What an interesting concept. I wonder what it will do to the cows in the long run? I have heard of organic farmers feeding cows garlic or other things to flavor the meat (never tried it but apparently some farmers swear by it) so I wonder what flavor the pot will make it.

Thanks for posting this....
