The resin is never referred to as "pot". That is what we have
been talking about here for the last two weeks. Get with the program!

A joint never refers to tobacco and resin. This is what I mean by making things
up. We never were talking about resin but it is nice of you to finally tell people
what it is that you were talking about. Resin isn't pot. Period. Maybe you
are referring to hash? And the resin is smoked all by itself from a bowl.

Yes, but at least everyone else is using the same made-up language instead
of "jonesr speak" ( which only jonesr seems to understand)
