Condé Nast: Hoisted by their own pot 'tards.
 
2010-08-27 05:24:52 PM
For Farks sake, just legalize it.

I love how Conde Nasty sees no problem with accepting money from Scientology and anti-gay ads, but god forbid we discuss the devil weed.

I've never smoked pot in my life, but THIS. What people do to their bodies, harmful or harmless, shouldn't be the government's business. Remember that whole "small government" thingy, conservatives?

Awesome.

4chan Ambassador: Remember that whole "small government" thingy, conservatives?

They only remember it when it's convenient to their argument. Otherwise, it doesn't apply.

Of course, it's also possible that they just plain forgot, being as they partake of recreational substances that have shortened their memory span. After all, there's no better way to find out what a Conservative is going to be busted for tomorrow than by finding out what they're campaigning against today, right?

Reddit is completely unusable today. I had to scroll through about 10 pages or so before I got to content that wasn't people spamming that ad.

Great, and I literally just ordered a subscription to the New Yorker and Vanity Fair off Conde Nast's website. *shakes fist*

Living in the Bay Area, it's almost culture shock to discover people to which this is an issue. Course I said the same thing about SSM in CA and we saw how Prop8 turned out.

If they legalize it, they'll STILL probably give me a drug test for it.

The second that pot gets legalized I am buying 10,000 shares of Cheetos stock.

Except for the fact it is physically impossible to smoke enough weed to OD on, you're right.

Well, is Conde Nast actually the corporate parent? Because if it is, then they have the right (legally, maybe not morally) to change over the management and not allow certain ads (free or not). But it is still an great protest ... as long as it lasts.

It's Orange County's fault.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I live within walking distance of 15-20 dispensaries, maybe more. You know how much crime occurs because of the pot shops? NONE! The people that work in them are probably some of the nicest most relaxed people you will ever meet. And I still have to have a medical license just to buy the shiat. Hopefully you guys in Cali legalize, thus paving the way for other places like Colorado, Washington and Oregon.

You get to my house immediately with plenty of weed and I will have to test that out....for scientific purposes...

This sounds like it needs some scientific data for a peer-review study. I say we get a couple pounds of pot, a few vaporizers, some Doritos, and make a weekend of it. Now we just need volunteers for the control group.

Here's a question for y'all-

If they legalize marijuana...not just CA but the country, do you think employers are going to still fire employees for using?

You see, in order to bust people for DWI on pot, once it's finally farking legal they are going to have to come up with a test to see if you are actually high. I'd presume that would have to be a blood test, although it might could be a saliva test, maybe.

But employers and insurers will still go for the cheap urine test for post employee-injury testing untill they get sued and lose.
Of course, a pee test doesn't show whether you were high at the time of the accident at all, it just shows there's THC metabolites in your pee.

I'm not going to consider the very occasional recreational magic brownie until I can't get fired either.

And it's a stupid, stupid thing. Even the most obnoxious, irresponsible chronic is no match for an alky on the booze in terms of belligerence and danger to people, including behind the wheel of a car.
Not that anyone should operate anything more complicated than a stereo or dvd player while stoned. For crying out loud, sit back and enjoy melting into the couch. Have some food. Put on something spacy.

I hate to point out the obvious to you here, but they're nice because they're stoned. They may be nice when they're not stoned, but I can guarantee you that the people working in them are stoned.

Man, speaking of overdosing on weed...I just got back from the dispensary with some Blue Dragon and HOOLORDY is that stuff something else. Gonna have to walk over to Cheba Hut now to pick up some munchies!

Keep up the fight, folks, and I'll smoke one for ya in the meantime!

The police will just drive you to Taco Bell. If you actually eat any of that shiat you will be immediately found guilty.

2010-08-27 08:29:06 PM
Oh it makes you stupid alright...but it makes you stupid in all the RIGHT ways, where you start questioning things. And THAT is why they really want to keep it illegal.

Uh, duh? Of course there high as a farking kite, I just think people have this image still that they are crazy criminal drug dealers. I don't know what it is about the west, but we do seem to enjoy our pot a lot more than the east.
 
2010-08-27 08:30:16 PM
So, what happens when if it is decriminalized at the state level and not at the federal? Does Cali point out that the feds have told other states not to enforce federal laws before (i.e. Arizona) and then they don't arrest people for it? Or will the feds try and yank money from Cali since they are not enforcing it?

\not a troll, just wondering what the rest of fark thinks

Actually, politicians prolly don't give a fark either way if it is legal or not, but there's too many people who have been misinformed and/or are just blatantly ignorant as to what weed really is and what it does, and it would political suicide for some to try and make it legal.
