Can a carbon filter keep drug dogs from smelling it?

    This should be correct. I don't believe glass is porous at all. The reason smells seep through bags and other materials is because of the pores. I always travel with my buds in a glass jar (one that seals airtight).

    That's another you have to watch out for is touching bud and then touching other surfaces.

    Glass is not a true solid. It is what's called a supercooled liquid, its molecules are always in flux. That's why glass in old houses is thicker at the bottom, the molecules are slowly moving downward.

    So does that mean odor will eventually seep from the glass?

    yes eventually. it will just take longer than a plastic bag. but the smell would prob escape from the rubber seal first.

    Really dude?!? That's the advice you're going to give? How many people have dogs in the US? How many of those people smoke pot? Millions, that's how many. You don't think the dog trainers have taken that into consideration during the years of training that these dogs go through?

    Drug dogs are trained to be entirely focused on one task. I don't imagine a drug dog that's distracted by something as common as another dog is going to be going out on patrol.

    If you state things like "tell your friend to get a dog" and that person believes you then that person now has a false sense of security. And when that person is being carted off to jail, I'm sure the thought "why did I listen to that advice" will be echoing through his head.

    You cannot get around drug dogs. That's the bottom line. What you can do, however, is do things to keep the cops from having a reason to bring a dog to your house. Again, common sense will do you wonders. I don't know the stats on this, but I would guess that the majority of people that get busted are caught because they get comfortable and let their guard down and ultimately draw attention to themselves.

    It means it is permeable to anything small enough, but I dont know if scent molecules are or not. Dogs smell nearly as good as we see. It informs their world almost equally. I don't think you can hide a scent in glass from dogs.

    An interesting note: bears put bloodhounds to shame in the smelling dept. Many, many times more sensitive. Narcs would use bears, if they were smart, and had the balls. LOL

    agreed but not all cops are very competent. check out more of those barry cooper videos i learned a lot from them. the best way to evade cops IMHO is to try to anticipate how they are gonna think. i think it is easier to fool the k9's handler than the dog.

    wow relax bro go smoke a joint or something. its not about fooling the dog, its about fooling the handler. check out more of barry coopers videos. he was a k9 interdiction officer in texas for many years until he turned pot activist. check out what he has to say. maybe youll learn something.

    Yeah, but the dog does the work. And when I said competent professional, I was talking about the dog.

    yeah it is hard to fool a dog, thats why instead it is better to try and disrupt the communication between the handler and the dog.

    Okay, now this is a prime example of taking everything you read with a grin of salt. Instead of just believing this, I immediately started researching it. And yes, my research is on the internet, but I look at many sites to get a consensus on a subject.

    Glass is a Solid
    An Amorphous Solid?

    1. Glass is an amorphous solid. Glass can flow and move over low periods of time, but it is considered a solid.

    2. Actually Glass is not amorphous and it most certainly doesn't flow over long periods of time.

    Many people believe this myth, but it is simply not true.
    Many people use the "glass is thicker at the bottom of stained glass windows in churches' argument to say that glass does flow.
    The simple reason why they are thicker at the bottom is because they were made that way for a stronger structure.
    Think about all the glass vases and ornaments that the Egyptians made; they have not deformed in the slightest.

    I can find you references to glass as a supercooled liquid, but think what you will.

    edit: It's just an argument of terminology.

    I've got a very open mind. Please send me a link or two as I would love to see some articles stating this. All I did was search for "does glass flow" and all I got was "no, this is a myth, and here's the research to back it up".

    I'm not trying to butt heads with you on his. I just wanted to prove the point that you can't believe what everyone states here. You have to research it and find the truth.

    But please, get me some posts to contradict what I've read so far.

    It's a legitimate controversy. It's been argued forever. They studied it for decades at Corning, and had to guess at their conclusions. Wasn't definitive.

    Just look around, there's plenty of info, some better than others.

    Technically, yes, it is in a state of flux, but the flow rate is so incredibly slow that any noticeable movement takes millions of years. Plus, the idea that glass is thicker at the bottom of old windows is not true in the least. Glass is thicker around the entire edge of old windows for structural integrity because the technology wan't available to make them the way they are made today.

    That's probably enough discussion about this as it is way off topic. As with any debate, it's up to the audience to conjure up their own opinions :)

    It's more than that, I mean there's more to it than that, but I'm done.
