Hi all - tonight while shopping, my lover and I decided it was about time we had an argument.

So she told me that Skunk the drug smells like Skunk the animal (spray).
Well I wasn't having it - it sounded a bit too good to be true.

So who's right?

The strong odor of a skunk is far more pungent than pot. The Labrador Retriever we had in the 1980's got sprayed by skunks every now and then. The person responsible for letting her out without her leash was also the one responsible for cleaning her afterwards. That person was me one time. It was an incredibly unpleasant ordeal. It takes multiple cleanings to make any progress, your eyes water, and all you can smell for hours afterwards is... skunk.

She's talking about "the spray from a distance not directly near you or on your person. Like the smell of skunk(animal) in the air."

This article seems to back up her assertion:

She has pretty much used every expletive known - at you folks not me - and is now getting ready for bed.

I guess you should have been more specific then.

I'll add this in her defense; a faint skunk odor smells slightly similar to pot.

Pot smells bad at any distance in which it can be smelled.


Yeah, I don't mind the smell of skunk from a long ways away. It reminds me of summer I guess.

Yup. I'd be ok with the legalization of pot if people didn't insist on smoking the damn stuff. yuk

If you want to know what a skunk smells like, put a pale lager that comes in a green or clear glass bottle (like Beck's) out in the sun for two weeks. Open it up, and it will certainly be skunked. Have a taste for more skunk flavor. Then compare that to Skunk weed and see if they're at all similar.

It always smelled like manure to me. Not much of an improvement.

To me, skunk smell, even from a great distance, has a revolting, oily undertone, like the evil shit a garter snake dumps on you. Dope smells musty, but is completely lacking the vileness of skunk musk.

I don't think I had ever smoked the kine because I wanted to experience smelling a rose garden.

Though I'm not sure what "Skunk Drug" is. But I've had some fairly skunky bud...

as someone who was raised by dope smoking hippies and who has also lived in areas of the US where skunks live .... the animal smells absolutely revolting from a great distance and its smell has to be one of the most vile smells I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing.... it is nothing like the smell of cannabis at all.

I like the very faint smell of skunk blowing around on a cool day. For some reason I don't like it so much in the summer.

The full on smell of skunk is pretty rotten though.

I always thought that Skunk was a particular strain of MJ and not just a generic term for it. From what I can recall, it never smelled like skunk, it smelled like blue.

I suspect that for most couples you are wrong. I suggest that the most commonly correct response would have been something along the lines of "Hmm honey, I don't think that is true but it does sound reasonable. Wow look at those shoes in the window over there, aren't they nice?"

Skunks in the south must smell different than skunks elsewhere in the U.S. because any amount of skunk, whether faint or strong, is bad. Pungent. Noxiously odoriferous. Down right nasty.

I must have been lucky in my college days because the pot I was around always smelled pretty good to me.

I was going to ask if you were referring to an actual moose head or the beer, then I realized that there is little difference.

Skunky weed does have some similarities to actual skunk smell. The skunk (animal) smell that people are familiar with is the longer distance version, which actually dosen't smell that bad. The really vile smell you have to be right up on the skunk to experience. I wouldn't recommend it.

Why this is I'm not sure, there must be some similarities at the molecular level-which sort of makes sense actually.
