(TMZ)   Rodney King's friends say weed had nothing to do with his death because when it comes to smoking, he was a "professional." Can't we all get a bong?   (tmz.com) divider line 117

If it did, he'd be the first guy to die from weed.

In which case, he ruined it for all of us... again.

All you need is a plastic bottle,straw,bowl from a broken piece of shiat bong and something to make a carb hole with and you're good to go.

Well I don't know how pot could have caused his death. I have been assured repeatedly by Fark that pot is absolutely harmless. Whatever could the headline be implying?
 
2012-06-22 11:35:21 AM
I will smoke some Blue (i have a) Dream in his honor tonight.

Ever since investigators were pictured removing a cannabis plant from King's home this week, there have been suspicions that weed may have contributed to his death ... or at least caused Rodney to exhibit some bizarre behavior on the night he died ... including loud crying spells and banging on the windows of his home.

Weed doesn't make people do things. Outside crave snacks. This is stupid.
 
2012-06-22 11:36:31 AM
Wait, you can be a professional pot smoker? Where do I send a resume?
 
2012-06-22 11:36:35 AM
My uncle's dog's cousin's roommate watched Celebrity Rehab and told me that Rodney had huge booze monkey on his back. It was clearly what his issue was, and he knew it too.

I don't talk to that guy anymore.. cause I mean, Celebrity Rehab... yikes.

Great. A story like this comes out while I'm the middle of an argument on a message board with an old cop who claims that pot is addictive and causes violent behavior.

Are the toxicology reports even out yet?
 
2012-06-22 11:39:38 AM
Exemplary punnage, Master Subby.

I hope the toxicology will reveal he died of three seemingly unrelated causes like Whitney Houston. In fact, that's what I'm going to tell the guys at the bar tonight.

ME: Did you hear Rodney King died of a combination of marijuana, lyme disease, and restless leg syndrome?
 
2012-06-22 11:39:44 AM
I think you qualify as a "professional" once you've been so violently stoned to a point where you think you're dead or dying and continue to smoke habitually everyday, knowing your new found limits.

Tell him that if he doesn't shut the fark up, you're going to put your 1/2 oz joint out in his face and proceed to kick his ass! And once you're done you're going to mainlining your hash oil with dirty heroin needles.

Rodney King proves that every young American's dream CAN come true. All you need to do is go on a PCP-induced rage bender, try to run down and murder a white cop, and then get called an attractive and successful Nubian American during the ensuing beat down.
 
2012-06-22 11:44:39 AM
I can see the cop issue. There is a mass amount of violence when it comes to the selling and distribution of pot.

Granted, the only reason there is mass violence surrounding marijuana is because the laws are stupid.

But that's not really the cops fault.

umm... he's a professional cannabis user. The tox report will show that he had incredibly high concentrations of the active substances in his system, that could have been there even if his last bowl was 2 weeks prior to his death.

Tox reports prove very little when it comes to causation.

Ah, the great bong hunt. I remember going into thrift shops, looking for cool objects to drill holes in.

Coming up Saddle Road from Hilo, a couple of soldiers discovered that they had bought some weed but no rolling papers. A vietnam era vet said "No problema. fellas." He dented an aluminum can thusly and arranged the rest of the can in a manner that allowed him to poke a hole right next to the dent.

Arranged as a makeshift pipe, he wadded a hit in to a ball and placed it in the dent. He then lit the wad, inhaled through the can opening whilst keeping the can level and proceeded to get stoned.

By the time we got to PTA, they were both seriously baked. The can went out the window and the remainder was crotched. It was a few days before the division appeared for an FTX so we had most of the base to ourselves.

Okay, everyone is laughing, because Rodney was a fairly useless human being.

But did you know that there is a strong body of evidence that pot is a less-harmful substitute for alcohol. Google "cannabis" and "alcoholism." Lots of alcoholics have stopped being drunks that way, and it appears Rodney tried to be one of them.

Maybe he had a relapse. Nothing works for everyone. My guess is that the tox screen will show lots of alcohol... and drowning is a pretty common way for drunks to die.

Also, I'm pretty sure there is zero chance weed alone would cause this. It would have to be more of a cocktail of weed, and booze and probably some kind of pill cocktail. Or maybe he had some condition that caused him to just fall asleep and not wake up. I think the only thing we can be sure of is that it wasn't weed alone that "killed" him.

The synthetic cannabanoids, the K2s and Spice Derivatives, that are out there most certainly can cause psychosis and psychotic breaks, as well as altered mental status. Their original design was to study endocannabanoid receptors in experiments. It just so happens that it shares those receptors with the same group of receptors involved in schitzophrenia and paranoid behavior.

If they dont believe it, they shouldnt enforce it. Works that way with other laws.
Being the son of a retired cop, ive met quite a few of them that actually believe that pot is no different from any other illegal drug. They cant/wont believe that pot is different from heroin, pcp, crack, etc. Like I said. Ur wasting your time
