pot = dope
    #4716611 - 09/26/05 09:54 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Why is pot called dope sometimes? I always thought dope was like, one of those crazy drugs like heroin that fucks your life up.

Is it just an ignorance of hardcore anti-drug people and whatnot? Or am I just an idiot.

Dope is short for Dopamine, the brains natural drug. Dopamine is the cause of happiness. Whenever you are happy, the brain releaes dopamine (more like: the brain releases dopamine and causes you to be happy).
Ya' know how you feel just after cumming? well, when you orgasm, the brain releases massive amounts of dopamine into your system, causing you to feel extremely content, happy, and relaxed.
Based on this, dope would refer primarily to heroin (or similar drugs) because heroin acts like a synthetic orgasm. It basically just causes a massive dopamine release in your brain.

EDIT: Well, that's not all that heroin does, but you get the idea...

EDIT EDIT: And yes, it's ignorant anti-drug bastards that call cannabis dope. It's also these same ignorant people that refer to almost all drugs as narcotics, when really the word narcotic, which comes from the greek word narco (which means "to sleep") refers to a very small group of drugs we like to call "sleeping aids".

Ah, here's a question, why did/do people call marijuana "pot"? Never known the answer to that.

pot comes from some mexican word for marijuana that starts with pot.

i can't recall it because i think i've only read the explanation once.

anyway, if dopamine makes you happy why doesn't toking up make you happy?

:frown:

There is nothing inherently euphoric or emotional about weed for me. If you are in a great surrounding with cool people then you can get happy but otherwise you're just altered and moderately tripping on your thoughts for a while.

It's really only made me giggly happy like once...... maybe because I'm not an overly happy guy?
