The Hip on the Shite


I don't smoke it but I found this rather interesting...

Why is marijuana illegal? In twenty words or less:

"Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men."

Those were the words of the guy who outlawed it.[1]

The current situation, in nineteen words:

Marijuana is illegal so that we can arrest poor people for no good reason.

Marijuana is harmless.

The end.

Yeah, when was the last time one has heard of someone killing someone for driving under the influence of marijuana? Alcohol is way more dangerous. Although I don't condone DUI under any substances, I was just trying to make a point! I smoked out in my 20's, a lot. It never caused me any harm. Unless, laughing & eating junk food is dangerous for one's health?

there are many many more awful ways to spend ones time. on some level, i'm very happy all those potheads have something to occupy their time. it's less time they will be interacting with my world.

AMEN!

And I'll kick anyone's butt who says "it's a gateway drug." Oh yeah, I see a lot of potheads running for coke, ecstasy, and heroin right away, after they get up off the sofa. ;)
