    I just took photo of my alligator clip! I have had it all these years, I stopped using pot in the middle 80's. 2nd photo is me 18 yrs. old back from Vietnam 3rd photo is me 21 yrs. old! What a change! Last photo is sensimilla marijuana which means without seeds. Life takes a person in lots of different directions, I traveled a lot and had a lot of fun and adventure.The music then was the greatest!!! Now I enjoy collecting items and looking for new treasures! Good hunting to all us Collectors!

      Great story with your clip . I first heard of pot during Nam and times were changing in 70's . I treated many guys that got hooked on heroin while in Nam . It was my awakening to drugs and I have said before I think drugs really started being a problem when the guys started coming home . But I also understand why so many took them while there . Glad you quit and made it home safe . Love the photo of you it is so 70's :-)))))

      well i have analyzed a lot of mary jane with my time with the toxicology crime lab in nebraska -- now this is a true alligator clip -- even looks like an alligator -- amazing i worked all those years with the crime lab and have no clue the affects of mary jane -- never tried it -- courts can be scarey -- never wanted to fail the lie detector test it i had ever tried it -- so never did -- really don't think i missed out at all -- too stinky -- and meth -- oh i can smell that chemical a block away -- total cat piss is the smell -- don what reading the book "saving fish from drowning" by amy tan -- have you read it -- i keep thinking of you as i read it -- will pass on the book to you if you have not read it yet or if you want to check it out at your local library -- hugs kid

      Hello I will try and get from local library, the alligator is neat! squeeze his chin and mouth opens and closes, works great! Take care! I hope to travel this spring. I have some problems with my legs, but getting better now. Take care, hugs to you also Don

      I know a lady who has one much like that one. I want one!
      Even though I don't do jays, I'd like to have one of those, just in case. ;)
      Have you even the slightest idea where one might procure such an alligator clip?
    5. toracat toracat, 10 years ago
      Hi wow I searched around and can not find any!

      lol!!! lmao!!!!!! your very welcome toracat!!
    9. towercam, 10 years ago
      Well YEAH, I knew you weren't going to find one. I spent several hours today trying that thing.

      I thought maybe you were ready to sell yours, or you know a pal who has one to sell.
      I've looked around for said alligator clip pretty darn thoroughly. I may have to cast my own.
      Please examine, carefully, your alligator clip for make and model.
      I think there is some script/text on it. What does it say?

      Will add new photo of belly!! 10 minutes!
    11. toracat toracat, 10 years ago
      Do not know that logo???? sorry
    12. towercam, 10 years ago
      I am thanking for the photo of the alligator's belly. Unfortunately, the photo does not reveal the entire symbol. I'll sure look around for what I see of the symbol.
      Again, thanks.

      Hi there, I used to have the same clip but the tail broke off. A longtime friend had one also that broke. I would like to surprise her with another for her upcoming birthday. Would you possibly like to sell yours to me for like $10 + shipping. If so, let me know. That would be great. Thanks.

      No thank you
