Time to take a break from sharing joints

I never thought I’d write a headline like that and actually mean it, sharing a spliff or whatever has long been a part of the cannabis culture. Sorry and I bet I won’t be popular for saying it but here goes: This is what I think is probably pretty obvious advice really, sharing spliff is a way to spread the disease.

Share your smoke, but don’t share the spliff.

The simple reason is sharing even tiny amounts of spit is how the covid thing is passed around. That doesn’t only mean from spliffs, it also includes pipes, vapes, everything. Don’t even share a strawberry hash yoghurt from the same spoon.

Sorry everyone but with luck it will just go away as that nice Mr Trump said would happen. Meantime here’s another slogan:

If you want to get high, smoke your own supply,

or something like that.

Anyone got a better way to say it?


UKCIA is a cannabis law reform site dedicated to ending the prohibition of cannabis. As an illegal drug, cannabis is not a controlled substance - it varies greatly in strength and purity, it's sold by unaccountable people from unknown venues with no over sight by the authorities. There is no recourse to the law for users and the most vulnerable are therefore placed at the greatest risk. There can be no measures such as age limits on sales and no way to properly monitor or study the trade, let alone introduce proper regulation. Cannabis must be legalised, as an illegal substance it is very dangerous to the users and society at large.
