I know sailors who received "CARE packages" from home that included large bottles of "mouthwash", which were actually just vodka and food coloring, looking like the Listerine in that picture. And tasting like it, too.

Not in the mail. The dogs ran all the packages before they left the States. I see what you meant now, but my befuddlement was caused by the highly unlikely chance that would happen. Never crossed my mind. The only one who would send a sailor at sea pot would be someone who didn't like him or was completely out of communication with him.

I wasn't (quite) serious but also not sure. "The dogs ran all the packages before they left the States." is what I suspected, but didn't really know.

How is it these days with the laws finally relaxing and medical weed? Would any of such be allowed in the services - if people with applicable conditions aren't discharged anyway, that is?

By "running the dogs" I mean that the Customs people run the drug sniffing dogs past lines of packages and luggage to check for contraband items. They're extra careful with items going to the military because we don't need impaired people with guns or rockets. (That's the official line, not mine.)

I retired in 1989, so I can't give you a current picture of enforcement, but I think the upper management types are still as conservative (for the most part, there were exceptions of course) as they were when I was active duty.

Even if pot gets legalized it would face the same restrictions as alcohol onboard our facilities.

...okay, I lied, I never went over 180 proof. Not knowingly, anyway.

Puncheon Rum is now only guaranteed to be at least 75% alcohol, and not at least 80% like said on the last bottle I had: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puncheon_rum Bummer. I don't even remember the name of the stuff that had "guaranteed to be at least 180 proof" written on its label, but I do remember the soft cool feel of the urine-spattered ceramic tiles in the public restroom where I later (and temporarily) awoke.

Reminds me of a vacation in Paris where I got a six pack of "Orangeboom" (?) from a grocery store to drink as I walked around. I notice and bought it for the 19% or so alcohol level, then drank it as if it was beer. One and only ((well....second time but first was on purpose)) I woke up in my hotel bed not knowing how I got there. Got rolled on the streets and the cops somehow got me home. I have always been thankful to who ever rolled me.

First time...I just drank too much a woke up out at sea on a yacht. Good people...don't remember agreeing to go, but I do like sailing.

Your quoting skills are bad and you should feel bad.
