And probably not for the reasons you’re thinking. What shocks me is that they had to spend money voting, and that it is even controversial to begin with. What a colossal waste of resources. A plant grows out of the ground. Some people harvest the flowering portion of it. They smoke it. They get stoned. These people RARELY get hurt. Where’s the fucking problem? The sun shines. Some people sit in it too much. They get skin cancer. These people FREQUENTLY die as a result. This is a fucking problem. Do we criminalize the reaping of the sun’s rays? Just give the government enough time and I’m certain they’ll find a way. The “marijuana is a gateway drug” crowd are assclowns, end of chat. You know what are equivalent gateway potential drugs? Beer, cigarettes, orgasms. I don’t see anyone criminalizing beer because the square crowd deems it acceptable. I haven’t heard any gnashing of teeth to start prosecuting masturbation because eventually some people will die during auto-erotic asphyxiation in an attempt to achieve the ultimate jerking off “high”.
Only losers smoke marijuana and lay around on the sofa eating Cheetos and watching cartoons. Real men get fucked up on whiskey at the bar and kill a family of 5 headed home from the ice rink because he wanted to see if his Camaro could pop wheelies. Get your shit straight, hippy! Smoke your reefer and sing about peace you useless tits while the real fucking men go kill and get killed by random southeast Asians for some nebulous concept like “stopping communism”! Make perfect sense? You are goddamn right it does. Real patriots get drunk and kill shit, sometimes humans. Pussy traitors to their country smoke pot and whine about not killing shit. Look it up, Moon Child.
Before you dismiss me as some spaced out stoner trying to talk his hobby into legality, know that I don’t even smoke weed. No damn good at it. I am rational enough to understand that it isn’t hurting anyone and ruining millions of lives like the legal drugs alcohol and nicotine certainly are. What is typically the worst outcome of a marijuana overdose situation, a fuckin’ large pepperoni pizza? Orange soda isn’t going to drink itself and neither are sober people. A good bell-weather question for people on the fence regarding the dangers of alcohol versus marijuana: If you and you alone were charged with the care of ten 22-year-old men (read: boys) for an entire night, and responsible legally, financially and morally for everything they did during that night, which would you choose; A) They are given an ounce of marijuana or B) They are given two handles of Jack Daniels? Well, what would you prefer? Ordering pizzas and turning out the lights after everyone passes out to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon playing over The Wizard of Oz; Or wrestling car keys from dudes screaming they “are fine”, intervening in fights with strangers, cleaning blood, puke and piss out of carpets, bailing people out of jail, and fielding pleas to “call that fucking guy who sells blow behind the bar!” until 5am? I know which direction I’m going.
