    Effect of Cannabis use on hearing

    How would you smoke a food without using smoke, or a flavoring derived from smoke? What else produces that taste & smell sensation?

    Speaker cable indication.

    Of course, if you enjoy fooling yourself that a particular loom (all the cables & cords in your system) sounds best, then enjoy, I guess.
