i used to get blunted before playing all the time in okinawa.
but yeah, you do pay ridiculous amounts of money for it. i knew people that hooked me up and I still ended up paying equivalent of US 100 for like a dimebag. I just conserved my shit. i have a real problem choking under pressure of the real thing so I either get drunk or blunted, and being drunk didn’t help me all that much.
