This is my first attempt at starting a discussion and I have done so because this is a topic that is of particular interest to me.
Any feedback - opinions and experiences is greatly appreciated :D

Dried powdered "raw ganja" is a drug that will affect you because it's a fractional stimulant. It's concentrated and will affect your brain and body.
We do not support stimulants here on 30bad, and I'm sure, even if you chew on the leafs on a ganja-plant directly you will feel somehow stimulated. It's not suitable as food.
Promoting ganja, crackao or any other drug is not helping the raw food community.
Thanks for the comments guys. :)
Interesting observation, Star, but not really surprising either since MJ, used spiritually or not, is still just a stimulant.
What people tend to forget about stimulants is that, despite any upfront pleasure or good feeling, they don't "give" you anyhting that they don't also take right back. Often users end up with more of a deficit than when they began.
In any case, a quick reminder of 30BAD guidelines:
With that thought in mind, we also will not tolerate any discussions that center around the use of drugs, recreational or otherwise. We are here to assist community members to be the best they can be, and believe that drugs do not provide optimum fuel or nutrition for the human body but are just another stimulant that the body would need to detoxify and drains the body’s precious energy. The low-fat raw vegan lifestyle provides the best high anybody could ever experience, and we are here to help you achieve that.
I recommend that if you cannot make a meal out of it, do not eat it. Things that are toxic in large amounts are toxic in small amounts too. I can take a lot of arsenic and die in a few hours, or I can take a small amount at a time, and die after a few weeks or months. Toxins are toxins.
This website will take a few days of reading, but explains some of the whys of what we do and do not do here at 30BaD:
