So a shamrock is clover and clover is a weed, so weed is clover
therefore smoking weed is just smoking a clover cig - right?

2. Shamrock would be a cool name for a brand of weed when they
make it legal.

8. either a clover or a pea - nothing to do with bubbles and bursting
The Irish word "seamrog," from which shamrock comes, means "little clover." Black medic, wood sorrel, and the hop clover have also been called shamrocks.


The true Irish Shamrock, as identified by Nathaniel Colgan c. 1893 is a clover.
http://www.from-ireland.net/history/nathist/shamrock.ht...

Irish wear the "shamrock," it can be any one of four plants. Three of the plants are clovers, while the fourth is a clover-like plant known as "medick." All four are in the Pea family:

1. Lesser trefoil, or hop clover (Trifolium dubium): 46%.
2. White clover (Trifolium repens): 35%.
3. Black medick (Medicago lupulina): 7%.
4. Red clover (Trifolium pratense): 4%.

15. OK.... the one sold in the US is actually an Oxalis.
"The name "Shamrock" is used to describe several different plants. The Columbia Encyclopedia describes the Shamrock as "a plant with leaves composed of three leaflets." The plants sold around St. Patrick's Day are the Wood Sorrel (Oxalis acetosella) and the Lucky Shamrock (Oxalis deppei). "

I stand corrected and now know more about shamrocks than my brain will ever retain.

16. personally I prefer the four leaf clover - I need all the luck I can get
One leaf is for FAITH... The second for HOPE...

The third for LOVE... And the fourth for LUCK!

10. Nor is clover the same as clove, which is what the cigarettes are.
But somehow, I don't think the OP is serious. Call me crazy.

14. fallacy of equivocation.
Edited on Tue Jun-23-09 09:44 AM by Deep13
You are using the term weed to mean two different things.

Besides, all clover made be weeds, but not all weeds are clover.
