I live very close to Mexico and have noticed that when I buy in higher amounts 2oz+ that normally I get a chunk right off of the brick. I have just begun to read these forums so I didn't realize that there was a "stigma" to this type of weed or that basically everyone thought it sucked. This last I bought was awesome to me. It was still really sticky and stinky but there are seeds and stems in it. I have never bought weed without them. Although I have smoked some pretty fresh bud (non smashed) Nothing stands out in my mind as being spectacular. I am quite sure that I have never even "stood" near what is supposed to be awesome smoke, but I am curious as to what most of your opinions are on this matter.
