Marijuana MAKES You Violent "We are a community based organization that aims to raise awareness that marijuana causes violence. We are a science based, secular, apolitical group. We are seekers of peace and truth. Don’t believe the lies put out by the media that marijuana addicts are just harmless peaceful hippies. Anyone who consumes marijuana becomes violently enraged and is capable of committing atrocious acts of violence. The toxins in the marijuana destroy the hypothalamus and amygdala, all centers of reason and rationality disappear from the brain."

I've been thinking of creating conspiracy theories. Invent shit no one has heard of before about why the world is the way it is. Then sit in a bar, buy drinks for shills and gulls, spout my theories, and see how long they take to show up on FOX. I might shake it up a bit, post to reddit or Fark or twitter, but the end will always be the same.

So I wrote a few of these down.

Then shit went sideways, and I decided I pretty much control reality.

Sure, the particulars might not be exactly correct, but five of my theories:
  1. Obama takes down the number two in Al-Qaeda to prove that even if the government is shut down the executive branch can still function and fuck you rest of the world that thinks the US is weak without the GOP.
  2. The Norwegians are secretly in control and have been making Jews take the criticism of controlling the world.
  3. The Romanians are ready to take over from the Norwegians.
  4. This item exists to confuse you.
I swear to god I am right on 3 of these things!

Also, pass the dutchie from the left hand side!

Recently I allowed a lovely Australian couple to feed me a pallet of beers in a Barcelona cafe. They were older, maybe in their sixties, and the gentleman had Very Strong Feelings about the Vietnam War and U.S. isolationism. I made a mental note to follow up on Aussie involvement in the war and U.S. military spending in the South Pacific.
"We'd have more money for empire building if we ended the war on drugs," I offered.
"Ah, you smoke dope, then, yeah?"
"No, sir, I do not smoke it, but I do not condemn those who do."
And suddenly the conversation changed abruptly. He was furious. Verbal assault. Accusations of rank stupidity.

Now I don't exactly recall what the original point of this story was - but don't talk about marijuana with older Australians.

The amount of tissue damage is so high that addicts’ life expectancies are said to be as low as two to three seconds, especially as they are often highly susceptible to infections and gangrene due to widespread HIV infection among injecting marijuana users, resulting in immediate death and addiction.

Tangentally, the music in the video is a track by Tear Ceremony, called Sleep in the Eyes.

He only put out three albums under the Tear Ceremony moniker before switching to more melodic electronic stuff (as Sonogram) and indie dream-pop (as Crushed Stars), but all three are absolute first-rate ambient music, with a uniquely Surrealist style.

It would be excellent music to smoke marijuana to, immediately before dying.

Sure, injectibles are the hot new thing. A lot of strains like OG Kush and Sour Diesel are actually better in an injectible form.

I don't do It as much as I used to but I have a nice collection of hand blown borosilicate Pot needles. My best set me back quite a bit, artisianal heady glass and it has 2 Percs, a seven arm diffuser and a quartz nail. These pieces are essentially functional art and can be appreciate even if you don't use injectibles.

So, I discovered that experiments with injectable cannabis require modifying the THC otherwise it can't pass the blood brain barrier. Also, apparently there's some evidence injecting (modified) THC without CBD may have a risk of causing psychosis. There's a company developing injectable synthetic cannabis, still experimental. And some british journalist did a public "experiment" with separate injections of THC and THC+CBD. THC by itself was supposedly a big downer for her; THC+CBD was thumbs up. Making one's own THC tinctures with alcohol and injecting them is probably very dangerous, though mostly because of the alcohol -- the unmodified THC won't really do anything.

You also claimed our department has not done enough to keep “medical-grade dispensary dank away from kids,” and has failed to address the serious side effects of marijuana, such as short-term memory loss.

We simply cannot remember a time we were more incensed by such a blatant mischaracterization of our department. We continue to investigate the sale of marijuana to minors, and we certainly do not encourage the use of silly branding like “Bubba Kush” and “Alien Dog.” If it were up to us, pot brands would have names like “Remember to Call Your Mother” and “You Don’t Want to Grow Up to Be a Drummer, Do You?”

I can't speak to it's efficacy, but I remember one time circa 2002 I ended up at a friend of a friend's house, where some folks attempted just that: They put weed in a coffee grinder type thing, and ground it into powder, and sifted out the THC crystals. Then, they went and grabbed some needles from someone's dad's bathroom (his dad was diabetic, so he had boxes of them. Also, this required a separate trip) We came back, they got the lighter and the spoon, and sure enough, two of them tied off their arms and shot up THC.

One of them was wearing blue jeans and a denim vest.

I was under the impression we were gonna hang out and get coffee later. We did not. I kinda felt uncomfortable, because this all struck me as a monumentally bad idea, before my other friend was like "Come on dude, how often do you get to see a bunch of dumbasses bang out pot?" Which was indeed a salient point. They seemed alright, but it didn't appear to make the high for them any different. Also, the control was kinda compromised, as they were smoking weed before and after this whole thing.

I kinda lost touch with that dude after that. (Not because of that night, but because he got some girl pregnant.)

He's 40 years old, lives in his mom's basement playing video games and watching internet porn, has never had a driver's license or a serious girlfriend, and is the most uninvolved, unmotivated person ever - UNLESS someone mentions legalization/decriminalization of marijuana. Suddenly he is well-spoken, knowledgeable, and very, VERY animated. It is easily the most annoying thing about him.

I think I'll send him this site. His irony meter doesn't register all that well, he'll probably go ballistic.

All I know is that given the level of stupidity in our fair country (I am hyperaware right now, having spent all day in airports and on planes), it's just a matter of time before a Republican congressperson starts tweeting about this site.

Bitter-girl - let's send it to every Republican member of congress and see how fast they start getting up-in-arms. I mean, it's not like they have anything else going on right now.

But the people who go around talking about how pot smoke is good for your lungs, THC cures all diseases, it's okay to operate heavy machinery while high, hemp fabric will save the world

On one hand perfectly intelligent and well educated doctors used leeches and blood letting to cure pneumonia. On the other you have the current immunization process that more often than not puts a live dose of the strain you're trying to combat into your system.

There's a quote out there that's probably associated with Lincoln for all I know, goes something along the lines of "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

All of these things are true. Man.

ChuckRamone: Pot advocates are annoying.

You're painting a lot of mefites with that brush.

I'm a pot advocate myself. I believe it's a recreational drug that's not necessarily healthy, but is much less harmful than legal alternatives (alcohol, tobacco). It's also a medication that can significantly improve the quality of life of people suffering from certain conditions (glaucoma, anxiety, chronic pain, nausea, etc.). It's not a miracle cure, and you shouldn't drive when impaired by anything, pot included, but I think the money spent and lives destroyed in the name of prohibition are unnecessary and unconscionable. If you ask my opinion or bring up the subject, I'm liable to talk your ear off about it.

I'm also employed, married, and completely unassociated with "pot culture". Most of us aren't involved in that "circus-like atmosphere", we just quietly have a toke after work on occasion, just like we might otherwise have a beer or two.


It's this circus-like atmosphere around pot culture that makes me want to avoid it altogether.

"It's this staggeringly drunk atmosphere around frat houses that make me want to avoid alcohol altogether."
"It's this squealing tweens atmosphere around Justin Bieber concerts that make me want to avoid popular music altogether."

It occurs to me that I'm being a pot advocate advocate here. If this makes me double-annoying, I apologize twice.

Also diabetes. Pot can help regulate sugar levels. (Heh! I'm being annoying.)

You're right. I should have qualified each one of my sentences. I have a tendency to immediately kick it into high gear when I start ranting. It seems I still have a bit of youthful impetuosity in me though I'm learning to temper it.

God bless the chunk of the internet that is, as far as I can tell, bored adult stoners trolling enthusiastic teenage stoners* about the dangers of marijuana

I think I learned about the Mothers Against Noise website here but we're all following @MothersAgainst1 on Twitter right?

*and of course the stoner contingent of those poor sweet tone-def souls in our families who are always outraged posting Onion and Daily Currant articles on their Facebooks
