I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     Terminal cancer patient threatened with jailtime for mentioning illness at marijuana trial.

Benton Mackenzie has a very rare, very aggressive form of cancer and before reading anything else about his case, Google-image “Benton Mackenzie” or look through the pictures on the Facebook page set up by his supporters.  They are very graphic, but a quick glimpse is necessary.

He and his family are on trial for drug-related charges in Iowa, and Mackenzie is not allowed to use his illness as part of his defense even though that is the reason why he grows marijuana in his parents’ home.  Iowa has legalized cannabis oil for epilepsy sufferers so clearly medical marijuana has some precedent, but Mackenzie isn’t allowed to mention his illness because we’re still fighting this ridiculous war on drugs that nobody can win.

     Weed pizza.

This is a pizza by Mega Ill, a cannabis-friendly pizza joint (get it…JOINT!  I’m so funny y’all) in Vancouver.  The flavorful crust is devoid of white flour, instead being made with oatmeal, wheat flour, and hemp hearts.  Not visible to the eye:  The cannabis infused oil drizzled over the top before being baked.

This is literally stoner heaven.

     Confessions of a Pothead Mom


One of my friends is a single mother and also a frequent user of marijuana.  She’s a well-adjusted person who just likes to smoke a bit every day or so, but some of our mutual friends have raised concerns about her parenting skills because she smokes weed.  Sometimes it’s in jest, and sometimes it’s more serious, but it’s definitely a topic that has come up before.

     House Repubs wants to sue Obama over marijuana.

This is such a colossal waste of time and so indicative of how broken our political system is.

At the federal level, marijuana is illegal.  At the state level, two states have approved recreational marijuana usage and another 20 have approved medical marijuana usage.  House Republicans want to sue Obama for not enforcing federal legislation in those states because, according to the federal government, marijuana is still a Schedule I drug on par with heroin and Obama is failing “to execute federal laws.”

Can beheadings be legal again because I want to send all of those idiots to the guillotine.  This is ridiculous.

     Black people sold drugs and went to jail. Now, white people are selling drugs and getting rich.

The US is taking a more lenient stance on drugs these days, especially marijuana, and that’s wonderful for recreational users, non-violent criminals, and taxpayers.  I don’t know many people who want their tax dollars wasted to fight an unwinnable war on drugs when that money could go toward other issues.  Still, enforcement of drug legislation has laid waste to two generations of black men — shouldn’t the government recognize that?

     Life imprisonment for marijuana offenses.

James Romans will spend the rest of his life behind bars, convicted by the federal government of dealing marijuana.

What’s it like to know that you will never be free again as a result of dealing a substance that is now legal in some parts of the country?  If we can’t even agree that marijuana should be illegal, should we sentence someone with the harshest punishment below the death penalty for dealing that substance?
