Yeah, but have you ever read High Times... ON WEEEEEEED?
2001-08-06 10:56:30 AM  
Someone sent High Times to the DEA? Yeah, I didn't see that coming. Wit, thy name is crackhead.
2001-08-06 10:58:48 AM  
I also get Hemp Times.

If it weren't for us pacifist potheads the warmongers at the DEA would be flipping burgers at McD's or pumping gas.

I should damn well hope the Drug Enforcement Agency subscribes to drug magazines. Just for intelligence's sake.
2001-08-06 11:13:50 AM  
Maybe they will learn something
2001-08-06 11:14:31 AM  
Yeah, duh. I mean, of course they get High Times, they need to know what those hip druggie kids are up to now a days. If the German's printed a 'nazi times' magazine during WW2, Im sure all their enemies would have wanted to get their hands on it.

No, I'm not equating drug users to nazi's im just saying in a 'war' you want info on your enemy. America and its 'war on drugs' and all.

it takes a thief to catch one. Seems to be te case also with dope addies. I wonder what 'Ebony' had for purpose. Or has it something to do with wood I wonder...
2001-08-06 11:16:40 AM  
Ha! And they also read about cooking with weed. Maybe they will learn how to make goo balls and browines.

They key is to saute your stash in butter, not margarine.

Who gives a crap what they are doing or reading!
2001-08-06 11:26:01 AM  
I see the DEA has ceased "Getting Results"...they must be suffering from burnout...
2001-08-06 11:28:47 AM  
Ebony is a magazine for African-Americans. It probably sits on the table in a waiting room along with Time and Newsweek, etc.

I knew that, I just wondered why it got the same (warning, cheap pun) highlighted status as those dope mags. Or there is a significance with that mag in conjuction with dope mags or someone found it clearly shocking to find out that DEAgents are people too..

In the DEA's logic pattern:

arrest=long prison sentence
long prison sentence=good politics
good politics=more FUNDING
2001-08-06 11:51:26 AM  
Well duh.. the DEA is pretty much racist. Like the FBI was to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.

Even the President right now is a hick who can care less about Black People.

US Declares War on Pot Head Canada! Film at Eleven

In a surprise move, the US State Department announced that the common border with Canada would be closed immediately, and that President Bush was now asking Congress to enact a Declaration of War against Canada.

Canada, which shares over 2500 miles of common border with the United States reacted in stunned amazement. Canada's Prime Minister, Joseph-Philippe Guay, who just last week signed legislation to legalize the personal use and cultivation of marijuna for medical purpose was noted to have said, "eh?"

President Bush stated, "It's those hippie draft dodgers that are responsible. I just know it!"
Bemused Canadian Customs and Immigration officals at the Rainbow Bridge border crossing in Niagara Falls, Ontario, say they are not surprised in they least. Toll taker Geoffery Geones said, "We'll be having a slow weekend, then, eh?"

DeLaRocha: To say the DEA is racist is ridiculous. The gov't put Al Capone and the mob in biz with Prohibition and they put black people in biz with the Drug War.
2001-08-06 12:26:15 PM  
Language tip for DeLaRocha and the many others I see make this mistake...

The phrase is couldn't care less. This means they care so little, it is impossible to care any less. In your version (could/can care less), it implies that because there is a lower level of caring about the topic, that the person must care.

I bring you love.

Blacks are not in "biz" the drug war. Further more, who cares if the DEA has a subscription to Black magazines, as far as I'm concerned their wasting their time. Just in anybody doesn't know already, people with low moral character are in "biz" with the drug war. Clutch to say that black people are in biz with the drug war is a racist statement.
2001-08-06 12:47:35 PM  
No Highlights magazine? Proof that they only give subscriptions to dentists offices.
2001-08-06 12:56:30 PM  
HotMeat: My coke dealer is black and I grew up in Newark, NJ so don't tell me blacks aren't in the drug biz. They are and I am their customer.
2001-08-06 12:56:51 PM  
Clutch: so you are saying that most black people traffic drugs? what a racist statement. I'd bet that most drug users are white males and that more black people are in jail for drugs than any other "crime".
2001-08-06 01:04:35 PM  
DeLaRocha: You must lead a very sheltered life. A quick tour through NJ and NY and you will see reality: White kids buying drugs from black people. And there's nothing wrong with it. I'm not racist, I buy drugs from black people all the time.

The irony is that the gov't has put them in business. You missed my point.
2001-08-06 01:19:01 PM  
Really clutch, in the 20 years I spent in Jersey, everyone got all their drugs off a bunch of hispanic guys in "Amboy", who got theirs from a bunch of Italian guys from Staten Island.
Nice job generalizing there, Clutch. I really hope you are just joking to kep this thread going, otherwise, you really are a racist. Just like the commercial, most little kids don't start out by saying, "When I grow up, I wanna be a low-life drug dealer", unless of course, they are the spawn of drug dealers. And since you are the one buying drugs, it's you keeping them in "business"... simple supply n' demand.
2001-08-06 01:34:08 PM  
Bunny: wow, you really blew that up. Yes, I buy the drugs, yes I'm keeping them in biz, you gotta problem with dat?
2001-08-06 02:24:46 PM  
You say I am sheltered and then recomend me sheltering myself to NY and NJ?

Where all all the drugs in Utah coming from? White kids.

Plus, Hispanic is a combo of native American and white Spaniard. I'd consider alot of them white or just Indian.

2001-08-06 02:54:56 PM  
Oh no, you're from Utah? Dude, I didn't think they had drugs in Utah. I was in Utah once and they looked at me like I was an alien when I bought a 30-pack of beer. I thought they were gonna arrest me.
2001-08-06 03:00:11 PM  
So tax money is being used to give these guys something to read while they take a crap?
I always thought those centerfolds in high times were so damn funny, drooling over a picture of thai stick.

mojomonkey: i must respectfully point out that i believe you are mistaken. the phrase "could care less" is the commonly accepted and traditional expression. of course it doesn't make sense, and i, personally, prefer "couldn't care less," for the reasons you mentioned. apparently, it's supposed to be sarcasm.
2001-08-07 08:20:20 AM  
Meat: The phrase "could care less" may be locally accepted, traditional it is not.
The following comes from

The idiom "couldn't care less", meaning "doesn't care at all" (the meaning in full is "cares so little that he couldn't possibly care less"), originated in Britain around 1940. "Could care less", which is used with the same meaning, developed in the U.S. around 1960. We get disputes about whether the latter was originally a mis-hearing of the former; whether it was originally ironic; or whether it arose from uses where the negative element was separated from "could" ("None of these writers could care less...") Meaning- saving elaborations have also been suggested; e.g., "As if I could care less!"; "I could care less, but I'd have to try"; "If I cared even one iota -- which I don't --, then I could care less."
