When I was a software engineer, the most productive guy in our house was a stoner. They're not stupid. Well some of them are but it's not a defining characteristic. Having a good sense of humor usually is though.

"The whole thing is pretty funny and tragic at the same time," Kevin A. Sabet, a spokesman for the "No on Question 3″ committee, said in an email this evening. "The campaign was beaten to the punch by a satirist. Sadly, some voters may be uninformed of the ramifications of Question 3."

No, it's just funny. There was an easy way not to be beaten to the punch by a satirist, you know.

Lesson 1: Always, and I do mean always, register a website before making your plans for it public.
Lesson 2: If you failed lesson 1 take classes in bankruptcy law.

I know plenty of smart stoners. Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Artists, etc.

It's the stupid ones that ruin it for everyone else.

I used to live in an apartment next to a pothead. For a couple months my only interaction with him was saying "hi" when we passed, frequently wishing I didn't have to smell his pot when it came through the vents, and a couple times asking him to close the vents in his apartment so I didn't have to smell it. And he was the classic stoner - wrinkly t-shirt advertising some band, jeans, messy hair. Then I happened to see him on his way to work in the morning. Wearing a nice suit and driving off in a Mercedes. He probably makes more money in a month than I do in a year, he just happens to enjoy pot to relax in the evening.

Also he smoked really bad weed.

/Not that I would know anything about it, officer.

It's always the stupid ones who ruin everything for the rest of us.

People aren't stupid because they smoke pot; they were stupid anyway, and pot-smoking is just something they do because they can't find anything else to do with their time. Take away the pot, and these dolts would still be stupid and lazy.

So, "shoot first, aim later" is a Masshole trait?
 
2012-09-15 07:34:36 PM
if you want to gain acceptance label your crap cherry flavor or anti vomit formula. about a month ago there was a story about a medical marijuana vending machine and it had crap descriptions for its varieties like morning mist hint of teaberry to calm nerves and awaken with fluffy clouds. next to it double rainbow double maui wowie with extra munchie power. whatever happened to non drowsy and sleep formulas? you don't have a appetite? fine. buy the medical marijuana labeled appetite enhancer. either that or make my cough medicine formula throat tickle seeing unicorns in a honeysuckle bush flavor.

Legalized pot is in a transitional period right now in socal: dispensaries are re-opened more or less at the same pace as the feds raid em shut.

So you can always go use your medical card: the dispensary will just always have a new name and be in a slightly different location.

Sort of an inefficient way to legalize, but I suppose it keeps everyone working.

Heh. For a short time I had dated a gal who was one of those ruin it for everyone else types. I met her when she was coming off her shift and had been sober for the bulk of the day, and in the beginning when we went out she was sober. Eventually that didn't last. When she was stoned she basically could have been a character in Half Baked. She had the beat-up hatchback with the "legalize it" bumpersticker with the rasta colors. She was also studying to be an elementary school teacher, a pursuit that she never completed.

Basically I got tired of dealing with a half-baked, barely-functional girl who couldn't take care of her own crap and didn't get that her own choices were leading to her poor situation, and where nothing I could do would ever make a real dent in that. As for her "ruining it" contribution, she's the exact poster-child for someone who demonstrates a lack of self-control and good judgement.

The flaw in the argument though, is that self-destructive behavior very well may find an outlet, even if a particular means like marijuana is not available. Unfortunately when the voices seen advocating for something are also those who are the ones engaging in poor choices, many will discount just about anything they advocate for. With marijuana being illegal, those professionals who are capable and partake are unlikely to stick their necks out to get busted, they've got too much to loose.

If weed was legal we would have just as many successful doctors, lawyers, business owners, ditch diggers, burger flippers etc. The only change would be that Frito Lay would have to double their production.

this is some seriously funny stuff, but I lost my shiat when I read the last line of the article

But for the millions of state voters who take their cue from the paper edition, it's too late, they'll be stuck contending with the "Fact" the "Red Sox are in Last Place Because of Question 3." 

I laughed until my throat was sore

Yeah, I worked with a guy in SF who smoked weed CONSTANTLY and he was one of the sharpest guys at the company.

As a Massachusetts voter who has never done recreational drugs, I'm voting "Yes" on Question 3. What cursory research I've done show the medical benefits of marijuana far outweigh any perceived detriment.

I could have sworn the headline would end with "then do NOT get caught with marijuana" or something along this lines.


I worked for a company that branded a name, worked on plans to go international, then some long months after that found out that the site name was registered only a few months back.

Sheesh.

In Washington state, the medical marijuana dispensaries have lined up against a legalization initiative because it would threaten their very lucrative business.

maybe they should legalize it in Florida. certainly wouldn't hurt the local arts scene
 
2012-09-15 11:43:07 PM
one of these days,this country(USA USA) will realize that trying to mandate laws regarding personal choices in darn near anything is futile. its nobody's business whether i chose to smoke a naturally occuring plant or not. you can legislate whether or not i chose to harm someone else. you can legislate whether i chose to cheat someone else financially. but you can not legislate what i chose to do to myself. its not your business,it is mine and mine alone. now if i do imbibe any substance and you can PROVE that its influence may have caused me to harm someone else,that i am liable for the harms i caused someone else,but you cant proseqeute me for the original consumption,just for the harm i caused due to my choice. too many people are in prison for nothing more then actual possesion without any real proof of harm caused. our prison population would drop drastically if we would just realize that while you dont necessarily agree with an individuals choices of consumption,that you had no real right to deny them said consumption. its not even about the legalize it and tax it accordingly philosophy,its just that its wrong to try and make peoples choices for them. its morally wrong. people should have the right to the pursuit of whatever happiness they desire and we have forgotten that basic tenent that our country was based on.

They can't even vocalize what it is about the initiative that would screw them over, other than "the science is faulty."

My favorite anti-s are the ones who go around admitting that they drive after getting baked. "You're just trying to get everyone pulled over for DUIs!"

If it's about blood THC levels, they have a legitimate point. Blood alcohol is directly related to your current state of intoxication, but blood THC is not. All it really tells you is if someone has smoked in the past few days. That's why setting a blood THC level limit is worse than useless. Also, laws already exist against driving under the influence of drugs, without the need of breath/blood tests.

CSB time:

When the Internet were in its infancy, my friends started an ISP, Tripnet, because they were fed up withe the lousy performance of Sweden's first ISP, Algonet, for private customers and having to make long distance calls to access it. They got their phone services from the former state monopoly Telia at the time. Telia weren't service minded at all so when the first viable competitor arrived on the scene, my friends jumped ship.

sub CSB:
My friend, Ola, was maybe the first or at least one of the first private Internet customers at Televerket (which became Telia). When he told them that he wanted dial up internet access, Televerket didn't know what to do. They didn't have procedures for that.
/sub CSB


That new phone company was Telenordia and with them they could expand to become Sweden's third national ISP after Telia and Algonet. The personnel at Telenodia were pretty green so they missed to register the domain name. My friends at Tripnet noticed that and registered it. Then they gave it to Telenordia to show them that they had to step up their operations or they would go bust.

ZTV was a youth channel here in Sweden (think MTV, but in Swedish) and when they decided to have a presence on that newfangled thing called the World Wide Web, they registered ztv.se but unfortunately the marketing guys had no experience with the Internet. Their commercials promoted their new website at www.ztv.net. Tripnet snatched that one up as well. You would end up at ZTV's homepage, but with an extra Tripnet logo stuck at the bottom of the page. I could for a while boast that I had a ZTV email address.
