There was an interesting article in the Village Voice this week that had some interesting Oliver Stone tidbits. I have no idea how based in reality it was, it was the head of Troma films but I got a kick out of it.

What does a paranoid crazy like Oliver Stone know about smoking weed?
 
2012-07-05 09:55:37 PM
I enjoy Stone's movies, but his admission that he would support a nutbar like RON PAUL on the basis of his pro-legalization stance is a bit daft.

But that's how we love him.

The US doesnt have the best pot, thats still amsterdam, ironically I found out the best mushrooms are grown near me and then are imported to amsterdam, kind of pissed we cant buy them here but I dont recommend taking a handful of caps then going out to dinner at Brasserie Harkema. Their damn bathroom made me feel like I was going where everyone could see me and Im pretty sure the russian guy eating near us was a bad guy in some movie.

Shrooms bad when no one else is expecting it.

The producers admit on the DVD they were doing mushrooms during a good deal of that shoot.

It's amazing they shot all that in 2 months, even if they weren't tripping balls.

Location no longer matters because all the best weed is grown indoors. Get the right seeds combined with a quality grow room and an experienced grower tending to the plants and you can grow top notch weed in Antarctica, if you want.

It can be done legally, safely, healthy, and it can be taxed and the government can pay for education and stuff like that. Also, you can save a fortune by not putting kids in jail

Say what you want about the man, he's not wrong about that.

I saw that movie on acid in the theater. I got some strange looks for some apparently inappropriate laughter. Specifically the flashback scene with Rodney Dangerfield. You know the one I'm talking about.

I'll put California and west coast weed (NorCal, Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, Alaska) in general on weed from ANYWHERE. Honestly, now that Holland banned tourists from smoking, it seems it is just as legal here in CA. Never thought I would be in a place where legal is de facto legal.

I agree with everything in that statement except the "healthy" part. Inhaling smoke of any kind into your lungs is nothing but bad.

But of course we should legalize it. Tax the hell out of it, and we could wipe out the budget deficit in less than a decade.

The west coast thing is absolutely true. The guys who grow for the A-dam smoke shops look to the noCal and Oregon growers for inspiration.

The nice thing about Amsterdam, for the serious smoker, is access to variety. It's all great, but only occasionally will you find stuff that matches the best US product.

...or so I've heard...

"That would be my personal solution, but as a politician, I would fight for decriminalization first, because that is the immediate by-product of this mess that we got ourselves into. It's very hard to pull out of a $40 billion-a-year industry, which is the prison industry. It's probably more than $40 billion. But they will fight you tooth and nail to keep these prisons as big as they are," Stone said.

West coast is ok but still the sheer availability and different emotions the pot can pull out of a person is greater in amsterdam, thats why it gets to vote.

Also they have not quit selling to tourists, that law was never enacted and even if it was they have no way of enforcing it since its still up to local municipalities to pass separate laws banning it, if they dont ban it being sold to tourists they couldnt be shut down since their version of supreme court has ruled its up to locals to determine what is acceptable.

Went last year just because of that scare the law may happen and that was all they talked about, it was a scare tactic to try and keep brits and germans from coming over there and making asses out of themselves, it didnt work since the british were some of the most obnoxious people over there.

Ive been to both and colorado, wasnt impressed with california, colorado was better IMO but maybe I didnt go to the right place, right now in amsterdam they are still selling, its just small towns that quit for getting rid of idiots reason but try to avoid chains or people with multiple stores, the quality seems bad there.

Toilet hydro FTW.

Damn shame Christie had to shiat all over the pot initiative, after the great surprise that it had congressional approval. The three busiest ports in the country are right here, bringing in top notch stuff from NYC, Canada, and Cali. Plus all the land to grow it locally (it's the Garden State, after all) down south and in PA.

Yep, we have all the strains, hell we invent strains out here. Amsterdam has plenty of our stuff, including bud that isn't even from here that they say is. I'm not saying we are better than them but as I said I'd put our weed on any other weed from anywhere.

Well again, I was told to stay away from chain type places, it was a lesson learned the hard way the best we found was at city hall just down from our hotel, we passed it on purpose to start with and regretted it later. They had shiat that blew away most of the stuff I tried in the states and they were nice as hell.

We've got damn good weed here in North Jersey. We are right next to NYC which probably helps quality wise. Not price wise, but you can really get some serious bang for the buck.

If you want crap Mexican weed, go right ahead. I prefer to support American jobs and buy American grown weed.

Is the market in the rest of America still dirty Mexican shiat? Just how old were you when you formed this opinion? Even my cousins out in the sticks of Missouri can get fluffy green nug now.

For anyone who can't get cannabis and needs a connection, send me an email, there are chains of people out here in CA who supply the rest of the country with medical cannabis through the mail. You pay a slight premium, but hey, you have the best cannabis, hash, and wax California has to offer at your fingertips. I get referral stuff like free weed and glassware when I connect new people, so we all win. Email in profile.
