It’s hard to imagine prissy Peter Dunne with shoulder length hair sucking on a doobie.
But as a uni student in the 70s – that’s what he did –
– but says he didn’t like it very much.
(ed:..i only linked to this piece from barry soper because of the wow!-factor in that pic of dunne back when he used to smoke pot.
(i wonder how many times he had to smoke before he realised he ‘didn’t like it’..and how much does his not liking it effect his decisions/chain-dragging now..?..)
..the rest of the piece from soper is his usually confused ramblings..(and it is difficult to see what his point is..if he even has one..)
..and as just one example of the rubbish he talks – he claims the pot was weak in the 70’s..
..what utter bullshit..the 70’s were studded with imports of thai-grass(sticks)/durban-poison from sth africa/afghani-hashish/high quality hash-oil (both imported and local-made..and a shout-out to that wellington crew..they made better than the imported..eh..?..’honey-oil’..mmmm!!!!!..)
..the pot was very potent/strong in the 70’s…
..soper is only a decade out..it was the 80’s that were known for crap local pot..the imports had ceased..and the local strains were getting more and more flogged out/the growers more and more careless…it looked alright..it smelt alright..but didn’t really work that well..was low-grade commercial at best….
..it wasn’t until the 90’s that local growers got their act together with skunk etc.(and bless them!..eh..?.)
..and i tell you all this ‘cos it brings into stark relief the complete and utter drivel that soper specialises in..he can’t even get basic facts like that correct..
..so dunne may well have had his ears pinned back with some of the outrageously strong dope from that period..
(i still remember nearly achieving lift-off on durban-poison especially…and a joint of that with some of that wellington-oil smeared on the papers (and laced with hashish) was some of the most potent pot i have ever smoked..i could lay out a room of 12-15 people with a single three-paper joint with that mix…for many it was one puff’ll do ya…and that was in auckland – in the 1970’s..so really bazza..you do talk complete rubbish..don’t you..?)
..and if dunne did smoke pot of this quality (that he ‘didn’t like’)…if so..i can report to him that the skunk from today isn’t stronger than the best of that smorgasbord of exotic imports from the 70’s..eh..?
..but it is most certainly stronger than the rubbish from the 80’s..that decade that good-pot forgot..
..and also..i want to know if dunne ever took acid…many/most long-haired pot-smokers at that time did..and it too was strong in the 70’s..and if so/he did..?
..i will finish with one word of praise for soper…one word in his piece stands….he calls modern-day dunne ‘prissy’ and that couldn’t be more accurate..
..i dunno if dunne was ‘prissy’ back when that pic was taken – eh..?
..he was too stoned to tell..)
