    yeah you can get them at the headshops, theyre just pieces of metal or copper cut in the shape of a circle and it makes it so no weed can go threw the hole

    A screen looks similar to the metal mesh that goes into a tap (if you know what that is).
    You can get them at your local headshop.. they are typically 5 for $1 or something similar to that.

    Screens will get clogged up with residue from incompletely burned weed. At that point you can replace it or clean it. To clean it, hold the screen by an edge with a pair of needle-nose pliers and flame it with a propane torch, a butane lighter, or a gas stove (propane torch is the best). All of the residue will burn off. Blow off the ash and reinstall the screen.

    You can clean a screen this way four or five times before it becomes brittle and needs to be replaced.

    This is another urban myth. There is aluminum in the Alzheimer's plaques found in the brains of deceased patients. Some people jumped to the conclusion that this is somehow due to eating food cooked in aluminum pans. Others made the leap that it could be due to smoking weed out of aluminum foil. There has never been any scientific research supporting either of these arguments.

    Aluminum is, after all, one of the most common elements in Earth's crust. We're awash in it, but not everyone gets Alzheimer's. The fact that it is concentrated in Alzheimer's plaques in no way implies that it causes those plaques to form.

    The Alzheimer's Society says:
    A number of environmental factors have been put forward as possible contributory causes of Alzheimer's disease in some people. Among these is aluminium. There is circumstantial evidence linking this metal with Alzheimer's disease but no causal relationship has yet been proved. As evidence for other causes continues to grow, a possible link with aluminium seems increasingly unlikely.​
