less THC, more CBD clearly, "bag" is vague, but it's probably fair to assume that a bag is about an ounce (Anonymous Source from Campaign Trail '72) One "dose" of cannabis is extremely variable, but it is likely that the grass available in 1972* (even for an epic dope fiend) was WAY less potent than Eugene's finest (as in, an order of magnitude) *in fact, this is the year that Ed Rosenthal did his first "world-wide weed tour," collecting seeds from different strains of cannabis from all over the planet water-soluble fat-soluble water-soluble fat-soluble extremely only if chemically altered
(a recent advance) seventy-five pellets of mescaline OZA gripes whilst vomiting "God damn mescaline. Why can't they make it a little less pure?" Mescaline is rarely found in "pellets." HST is most likely referring to "microdots." Because the typical effective dose of even the "purest" mescaline is quite high (~500mg), an amount of substance somewhat difficult to press into a small pill without industrial pharmaceutical equipment given the physical properties of mescaline in particular. Illicit labs in the 70s churned out mountains of purple "microdots" that were sold as mescaline or LSD, although the vast majority assayed contained ~1mg DOB (a drug active at far lower doses, and thus more likely to be available in microdot form). five sheets of high powered blotter acid In 1972, a dose of LSD typically contained between 350-500 micrograms.

A sheet contains 100 doses.

Today's LSD is more like 100 micrograms per dose. in fact, LSD is one of the only illicit drugs known to have DECREASED in potency over the last half-century a salt shaker half full of cocaine 50mg of 80-90% pure cocaine is a fairly intense dose
