"Hennep" is a word for "Hemp" in Dutch. There's the confusion. Hemp
is ... well ... (mime motion of fingers holding something freshly
rolled, quick inhale, and holding breath, with slightly blissful look)
(sound effects "hsssssssssssssssp and mmmmmmmmmmm!).

I've inhaled smouldering henna, for the experience, as henna powder is
burned as incense during some night of the henna ritual actions (long
story), so I thought I'd see what it was like. I wouldn't want to
breathe in a lot of it ..... it's got a wonderful goaty scent, very
sexy, slightly intoxicating, that smells like a wool sweater worn by a
teenage boy in love, and a room full of the smoke previously
mentioned. None of us have EVER smelled a room full of such smoke,
nor have we ever cuddled the sweater of a boy who's fallen in love
with us, so we'll all just have to imagine. Like any smoke, it's not
kind to the lungs .....

And ..... gotta hit the road this afternoon, so it's bunjee posting in
and out!
