    Been reading the discussion about this on another forum.

    Do you give blood? If not, why not?

    I give blood, but I've lost my little card that tells me my blood type :-/

    More information about giving blood can be found here; http://www.blood.co.uk/

    Funny thing. I always hear commercials saying how blood is in short supply! Please donate to the Red Cross today! However, they won't let me donate blood, cause I got transfusions way back in the day. So even if I did wanna help out, I couldn't. Go figure.

    I would if I didn't drink so much, and I don't like needles

    I read a while ago that genetic manipulation of certain plants can result a bi-products of blood, synthetics are the way to go :2thumbs: aint been commercially developed yet though

    hehe you don't have to tell them you've done masses of shit..

    i wonder what would happen if i went there drunk as a mf saying that people who need blood deserve to have a little alkahol...for the pain, you know!

    i'd prolly get a boot up my arse though so let's drop that. :thumbsd:

    i dunno whatv the deal is with drugs and blood giving!

    cos i probably couldnt give blood anyway, too much weed and tings.

    although its probably ok cos they check all the blood anyway.

    used to give blood every 3-4 months when i was in the army, got me half a day of every time :idhitit:

    i think the also clean it up real good so if u havnt done drugs/alcohol in the few past days its ok, cause ususally the seperat it into 3/4 products: pellets, red cells/white cells and plasma

    hmm..not entirely true...marijuana stays in the blood stream far more than any other substance, and specially if youve been an everyday smoker, (call me GorD), it doesent vanishes for up to three months....

    i dont know if this is true, but as far as i can find u can only not give blood if u've injected drugs...(and hopefully we are all exempt from that :eek: )...or accepted them in exchange for sex...(again hoping everyones exempt!)...i cant find any mention of anything else (ganja etc) but mayb ive just not looked enough...anyone know??

    it does stay in your body for 3 monthe or so, but as far as i know, THC doesnt stay in the blood but in fat cells.

    i might be wrong tho....

    I had to quit weed and i was taking urine tests coupla years ago, and while a person that smoked one spliff,levels would go back to normal in three days, mine got around three months to clear properly. Dont know that bout Fat cells, but if its true ive got shedload of THC around my waist. Good thing to have in mind tho...if i ever run out of weed, i can just smoke me arse.... :hulk:
