I'm actually surprised that the law as it stands is like that in Cali. Here in the Empire State up to 25 grams (I believe) is considered a "violation" and basically amounts to a traffic ticket.
After the change, I would only occassionally indulge, just to see if the new weed could replicate the buzz of the old weed, and finally just gave up. The new shit, would actually made me dizzy, which I did not find pleasing. The old weed never did. The new green weed also never made me break out in uncontrollable laughter either, at some silly incidence. And the new weed never let me see a few colors either, or the mild hallucinations I was particularly fond of. There was alot to be said about the sativa grown in the 70's. Glad I was around to experience it.
IMO this is mostly a psychological thing. When I first started smoking at 17-18 (yes, really) I would get all stupid and giggly from smoking the crappiest dirt brown weed. Flash forward five or six years later and I can't replicate that feeling even smoking the best stuff in much larger quantities. But ah well, so it goes, all things are fleeting.

Well, it is a fact that breeders cross strains to get more THC out of it.
Dutch research showed that the THC percentage of local grown weed has rised from 8-9% average in the '90s to 18-25% now.
Also, lots of chemicals (hormons and stuff) are used to artifically raise the genetical THC level of strains.
Really amazing what an evolution went on in the pot scene in a couple of decades..

The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives.
The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes.
The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.

Anyone who thinks that weed was more potent in the 70's has no idea what they're talking about. Even schwag these days is more potent than the stuff from the old days.

"Has marijuana use changed in tha last 40 years?"
Nope! You still use either a pipe, roll it, or put it in a bong.
Oh and yes, the marijuana today is significantly more potent than it was in the 60's and 70's
Compressing it into blocks like that was meant to be temporary during bulk transportation. It wasn't meant to be stored that way for weeks by the reciever of the packages. If people were too fucking lazy to break up the blocks in a timely manner the weed would get ruined by mold and anerobic bacteria.
