    #1822254 - 08/17/03 10:03 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Just writing to share and request knowledge about head shops in Belfast, at the moment there are only 3 that I know of in Belfast none of which sell shroom stuff to the best of my knowledge

Fresh Garbage, Rosemary Street
Casbah, Rosemary Street
Rip Off, down a dark mostly empty arcade off the lower part of North Street, last time i was in they sold loads of legal alternatives and salvia

Those legal alternatives smoking blends are bunk!!!

One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today because growers in the 30s lobbied against hemp farmers -- they saw it as competition, because It is not chemically addictive as is nicotine, alcohol, or caffeine.

i had the opportunity this summer to meet and hang out with a bunch of people from ireland that were working here. i got to talkin about weed over there apparently all from what i gather you guys is weak hash i smoked about 7 grams with 2 of my irish friends one of them passed out the other got so bent he ended up booting all over the babes beach house we were chillin at i mean this wasn?tt any heady strain it was just some reg beasters wondering if all i have herd is true or my friends just don't have any connections.

I left Belfast about 6 years ago now to move to Belgium/Holland but its true enough what you say about the shite hash. Your lucky the gear you were smokin' didnt have plastic runnin' through the middle of it!
I remember one time, Summer, there had been a drought on smoke for weeks. Not a sniff around anywhere. On one level it was in itself a bigger peace maker than all the politics of the time. Hash smokin' Hoods from both side of the divide got together to flood the streets once more with combustables. I recall drivin' round the city in a transitvan full of constantly changin' faces as we drove from one council estate to the other callin' at peoples houses and askin' decidedly dodgy lookin guys on street corners if, "Big Anto was in?".
When we, the city, finaly got some hash back on the streets Fate had played a killin' blow! The gear had been smuggled in with a truck load of slurry, messy farmer shit, and the container had apparently burst round the hash so it got mixed in with the slurry. Believe me you could really taste and smell the shit. After makin' a joint you'd smell your fingers, shit. The smoke that filled the air? Smelt of shit.
People, myself included, were pukin' after a couple of drags. I didnt smoke for another few weeks till we got something decent.
Which brings me back to the point.
Yeah, Belfast hash is the worst. No taste, little buzz, and its such a commodity. Like you go to an after party and you've got smokeables? Your a well sought after guy.
Head Shops? I think its great as long as, i'm goin' to say this and i know i'm bein' naiv? knowin' the mentality of the average Belfast Gubber, people dont abuse them.
No, its a disaster waitin' to happen!
Belfast? You can score anywhere night or day.
The only city i've found that has a taxi service to bring drugs and a carry-out to your door!
Belfast, Belfast, wonderful Town!
The Hash is shite though.

I have to agree completly with Summerbreeze the hash is shite but,The the hash is shite is because the paramilitary organizations on both sides control its supply and thats all they bring in.Same old shit year in year out,Anybody caught selling anything else gets shot end off story.A few years back the IRA shot kneecapped 16 people in one night.You have to buy it cause there is nothin else.This is what happens to people who fall out with drugdealers over here it happened only last week

PS Summerbreeze a know the stuff you were talking about the cow crap stuff was nearly as good a the stuff we had soaked in petrol.lol

Remember the time the local West Belfast Hoods got pissed at the Sticky/INLA for the punishment beatin's that were bein' handed out? They decided to take direct action against the Black Taxi companies and burnt out a load of vehicles. Ahh, good times, Hoods fightin' Hoods and leavin' decent people alone. Give them a bag'a'pills and a weekend together and any paramilitary group in the North will half their numbers with in-fightin'and'a'feudin'!

Yeah, it was always a thorn in my side payin' money to those guys for gear. Sadly though it was the only way most of the time. How many independant dealers did/do you know? Not that many in my book, someones always got ticked from some dodgy bastard in a escort and baseball cap called Anto or Janty.

Did you ever have the pleasure to score in the WaterWorks by the Cave-Hill road? Theres an experiece right there By the way!
Or on the Heel and Ankle? Some right suss houses down there an'all.
I think my fave for sheer fear factor would have had to been scorin' up in Antrim. Tradin' hands with someone through a letter box, their hand always covered in DIY tattos done in the Crumb, while hoards of feral childer bite at yer heels.
Belfast, Belfast, wonderful Town!

A wise man from the East? Yeah you've got your own freak show goin' on righ there!
I'll always remember with affection walkin' enmass? to Central Station with a crowd of Mods goin' to Bangor for our version of the Brighton 64 riots and bein' pelted by wee Clampets from The Strand.
My great Aunt lives up your way, suffice to say i've not seen her for many's the year!

Ho, Ho!
You got some persistent ones though, right enough. The ones with more holes in their legs than a sieve. Movin' from one council estate to another constantly takin' a shoein' about late night callers.
As William Burroughs said, "Sellin' becomes more of a habit than takin' junk".
So true Mr.Burroughs, so true.

So have you taken part in any of the wares bain' sold in Belfasts HeadShops as yet, or what?

"back bar in Robinsons in your day then?"

Naw, i was always more of a back alley Laverys drinker. Robinsons was a choice pub, though maybe a bit scummy.

I'd go for the LimeLight/Dome as my local, when i'm there of course.
Or to be a bit of a tourist the Crown does a good pint. But for sheer atmosphere and good natured banter ya cant beat wee Sammys Loyalist Lock-up on the West-Land. Dead cozy. Three security gates to get through. Then two bouncers. Then big Aggie sittin' at the bar cadgin' drinks. Salt'a'tha'earth'sure, wha'?!?!

The Pavillon and Erigle rank high in my book for afternoon boozers.

To tell you the truth the reason im on a scroom board is i cant get a hit off the hash anymore so ive been growin kits,my mate said he was in the one in North street and they tried to sell him a kit so i went down to see but they were closed.Lazy hippies only open from 11-5.
PS I am Hymn do you know if the other 2 sell kits?

Are you gettin' results from the kits?

I'd say theres no better place for wild 'shrooms than Belfast though. The place is crawlin' with them in season.
Walk up the Cave-Hill road in Autumn and its like a scene from Day of the Dead, feckin' freaks everywhere!

I am Hymn, are you also from the North then?

EDIT: Sorry, mate, just read your post again, you've still to try the kits, right.
I was speakin' to a friend that works in a Smart Shop here and she said that they'd had a few of the kits come back, read three quarters, 'cause of no results.

Yeah its got my vote. Apart from the soggy leaves on the ground that is. Other than that its all mulled wine and cosy 'shroom nights at home in Autumn. And 'shroom pickin', one of my fave sports.

So your kits workin' then, eh? Good call! I've sent away for spore prints and i'm hopin' to try this wee experiment mesel' soon, i hope its successful for me an'all.

But even if you dont grow enough Beaver is just up the road, and, whats that called, Lady Dickson Park?

", didnt realise cave-hill was good for mushrooms"

Yeah, its a great place. Lots of rollin' hills and good grass lands, very easy to spot.
Never been to the place you mentioned, well i may have as i remember pickin' round Carrick Castle, i think, but that was a while back now.
