I'm surprised that there wasn't an instruction at the 16 minute mark: "Now turn the record over to continue..."

The record "A Child's Garden of Grass" (with companion book written by Jack S. Margolis and Richard Clorfene) described almost every aspect of smoking weed, from purchasing to imbibing and the effects.

One part I'll never forget is: "One thing that happens quite strongly when stoned is a thing called sex. This is why you should never get stoned unless you have a girl with you. If you already are a girl, hi there! I'm Jack." The reason it sticks so strongly in my mind is I was listening to it when my 5-year-old daughter (who had been put to bed hours before) stumbled into the room and wanted to know what I was listening to and what was so funny. I've always been afraid to ask if she remembers that or what she thought of my hastily contrived explanation.

Also from "A Child's Garden", Phideaux: "The holy trinity of things to do while stoned on grass is the following: eating, sex, and playing music. If you are really talented, you may be able to do all three simultaneously."

@Virtual -- So far, by accurate count, I have come up with 137 different responses to that, and not one of them is appropriate for a family-friendly forum. Oops -- 138!
