Friday Debate: Weed is legal, so what are you eating?

Friday-munchies-1

You might have noticed that certain parts of the country are cloudier than your high school art teacher’s office during lunch time. There’s a strange odour in the air, more people have smiles on their faces and there has been at least an 867% in Bob Marley music being played in public. Dagga, Mary Jane,Skunk or whatever you call that holiest of herbs, is now legal for consumption and within the next two years you’ll be able to blaze up a joint at the end of the day without worrying about the state Gestapo kicking your door down for smoking something harmless in your own abode.

That’s great for a number of reasons: The Rastafarian community can finally practice their religion as their god intended, the medicinal properties of weed have been scientific fact for many a year and even those people living with more painful ailments can fight the chronic with chronic puffing. Personally, I’m not a fan of the stuff due to an incident last year at E3 where some jackass puffed non-stop behind me at a restaurant, resulting in me spending two hours with my head in his green clouds and almost literally crapping my pants before I got back to Critical Hit HQ.

While I may have almost ruined my favourite shorts, that doesn’t mean that I’m not happy to see other people partake in some of the ol’ weed wheeze. Here’s the kicker though: Junk food sales are going to go through the roof once marijuana smoking becomes more commonplace in the years to come. You’ve seen it countless stoner movies such as Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle or the Oscar-winning masterpiece Grandma’s Boy, but the munchies aren’t a joke.

This is a real craving, a desire to eat anything once you’ve got some THC in your system. So here’s the question: What’s the best food to combat the munchies with? I’d imagine that some readily available junk food would be the best, of which there is no shortage of locally. If I were struck with the munchies, I’d probably go drop a few bucks on Steers or KFC to sate my hunger.

Alternatively, you can make something to eat, although I’m not allowed to actually cook anything because apparently my usage of baked beans has been classified as a war crime against humanity by the Hague. So sound off below. Tell us the ultimate hunger-buster for the munchies, or maybe even regale us with a tale of an epic journey to a particular fast food eatery that satisfied your post-blazing hunger in the past.

  1. I don’t like the stuff and have never smoked the stuff, but now might be a good time to get into the gym business. With more people ingesting 207 (or was it 204), and possibly more people becoming obese, more gym contracts might be opened!!!

      If I may rebute. I just smoked a blunt and the last place I want to go is the gymnasium.

      Hypothetically.

        You may not want to go to the gym after smoking, but if you do get cravings for food, and you do end up eating more than need be, over time there is the risk of becoming obese, and it is a known fact that obesity is not healthy, hence the need to gym, to burn the calories you will inevitably gain!

        I remember in high school, weed was also called Zol (’96 to’00), hence it being called 207 or 204. I can’t remember. So everywhere you saw graffiti at school (especially on the desks) with the number written.

    Yeah, you’d have to be high to eat KFC willingly. 😛

    On topic (because FFDs are known for this), I’d usually be eating Chicken. KFC was an old favourite before I developed tastebuds that worked, Fontanas was our go-to in my 20’s. But now? I have no cooking clue. It’s been a long time since I smoked anyway, so it’d be an interesting voyage of discovery on what I’d want.

            Have not had pineapple on pizza in months! The Romans in George sucks balls*, so there goes my 4-in-1 with pineapple and garlic. Currently hitting the Carnivore at Panarotis with a Bar One milkshake

            *Put so much pineapple one time that I felt I never wanted it again, and another time gave me smalls in stead of mediums. Bastards!

            One thing I love about Cape Town is all the bespoke restaurants. So many great choices for pretty much whatever you feel like. Eat Out The Box is amazing, groumet Pizza, at Debonairs prices. I honestly don’t know how the chains actually make any money down here, but, they do. Can’t account for taste.

    I think I would prefer KFC, with Steers as a backup. KFC does not deliver in George though, but Steers does. So it depends on whether I stock up before-hand with 20 Zinger Wings, or if I get the Big Bacon King Steers with large chips and a milkshake delivered 🙂

    The sweet sweet tears of many anti weed people.

    Also just because weed is legal does not mean it can’t be misused so if you are going to try it don’t drive or operate heavy machinery and for the love of Cthulu if you work in like construction or something don’t smoke period.

    Omg what has become of my life. I seem to be posting PSA’s.
