Rfv-sense: a particularly large cannabis joint. The people on Google Groups who "smoke carrots" seem to be referring to the orange vegetable. Maybe Camberwell carrot from Withnail and I could get some hits. --Jackofclubs 18:41, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

The North American industrial carrot is a bright orange, but S.Am. & Asian carrots come in intense red, pale yellow, potato blue, and probably other colors. I read a AARP article that indicated that the orange carrot was developed for its transport & shelf-life durability, and thereby lost most(84%) of its nutritional value when compared to heirloom varieties (although still better than most other commercial tap root vegetables, and any refined grain).
