Can't we just fast-forward 15 years and legalize it already?
 
2010-09-01 12:49:46 PM  
hopefully, just like the upcoming Conan link, the video will somehow magically appear in the article... but I'm not holding my breath (zing!)

yea, great, just what we need - more pain in the ass folks walking around high.

Pool on how many times the word "dude" is said in the video?

Also, fried chicken > cheetos

I would much rather see pot commercials on TV then erection pills.

Or anti-depressants with side effects including but not limited to: Death, Heart attack,Stroke, Liver failure, anal leakage, depresson, suicidal behavior, colonic inversion, and spleen rupture. In semi rare cases you will develop Parkinsons. Call now for a free sample by mail!

This is cool and all, but just curious: why is it in the geek tab? Which is considered new technology: marijuana or television?

Marijuana is not shown in the advertisement, and the word "marijuana" is never used. Instead, patients and the ad itself refer to pot as "cannabis".

Really? No my journalistic buttholes, you refered to cannabis as "marijuana" and "pot" in your stupid article. Cannabis sativa is the proper name you uneducated conservative douches.

"Marijuana" was a made-up word invented by Hearst newspapers in the early 20th century to associate cannabis with dirty Mexicans.

Well, if I may add a possible correction----the station that airs RSN in Breckenridge (Summit County, Colorado) was airing spots for dispensaries at least as far back as last February.

If I had to guess (and I don't) a random sampling of journalists from ANYWHERE would net you very few "conservatives". Sloppy maybe, conservative? probably not.

There have been medical marijuana commercials on TV and in the newspapers in western Colorado for the last year.

The TV commercials show buds in glass jars and all kinds of *ahem* glassware. The words "marijuana" or "cannabis" are not mentioned in the TV commercials, but are in newspaper and other print publications.

The advertisements and the media like to use the word "dispensary" a lot.

Does medical marijuana have a place on television in California?


I don't know. Does the commercial talk about smoking something? Hasn't smoking advertisments been prohibited on TV and radio since January 2, 1971? Or does that only apply if the plant that is being smoked is from the genus Nicotiana?

I wonder if it would be legal to run an ad for huffing paint? Hmmm.

Vaporize it
Bake with it
Cook with it
make it into butter
Turn it into candy

There's more than one dozen ways to use cannabis without having to light it on fire.

What a boring ad. They should get Tommy Chong and Dave Chappelle to sell it.
 
2010-09-01 01:40:12 PM  
FTA: Of course, right now, this is as controversial as when cigarette, condom and Viagra commericials first hit television.

Cigarette ads were of course very controversial when they first hit the air, in the 1950's. That's why they were banned, 20 years later.

/Also, CNN Spellcheck fale.

In Colorado we have Kush magazines free (along with a slew of other competitive free magazines) that you can pick up at any 7-11 or Kroger owned store. It's essentially like High Times with fewer articles and more ads. Most of the major dispensaries run color ads with coupons that offer a free gram with purchase of an 8th or buy one get one free, or free edible with purchase. It's crazy.

These magazines make no attempt to hide what they do. The front cover is usually a giant pot leaf, or full color photos of buds. They do everything but print, "HEY LOOK! MARIJUANA!" on the cover.

Despite all that, I have yet to see a single old woman faint, or a child turn to a life of crime because of it.

Haven't seen it.
I live in Colorado.
I also work for a Medi Grow house and dispensary on the front range.

My guess is that Nicotine and Pot are two different animals, thus the law would not pertain to Pot.

But again... they don't ever have to show someone smoking it.

Your question is idiotic.

But if you want an answer, in Washington State when one gets their med cannabis license, one gets a hand-out of how bake with it, how to vaporize it, etc. People with nausea problems do best with smoking or vaporizing it. I know somebody with pancreatitis who smokes in the morning otherwise he vomits so much he can't work.

Umm... no.
The tendency of government, after having found its enacted a law that doesn't work, is to keep said law for eternity.
Its been that way for gun control, drugs, and a number of other issues.

No sense in fixing something thats broken.

yeah, the genotypes are pretty much intermingled now, but the phenotypes are still very noticable. A good seed bank will help you make the best choice for your needs.

Ok, THAT got my attention. My Father has acute pancreatitis, and has looked like he's been on the verge of death for the past ten years. The puking and everything. They put a morphine pump implant in even, and that doesn't help everything. I need to get him a packed blunt I guess.


Does he live near Seattle? If so I can help him (legally). E-mail in profile.

Not sure if this counts....the ad sponsor is a bible thumper with a sick child angle. The linked video has her grousing that it seems okay for her crotchfruit, but "it should be heavily regulated by the government" for everybody else. Is there nothing these fundies won't warp to their twisted imaginary friend delusions?

Then there is the "opponent" with the old gateway drug crap. "what's next?" he asks, "Medical cocaine?" and "Medical heroin?" I think he should look up novocain, lidocaine, morphine, etc. etc....

People really are idiots.
