They need to get that on a tourist brochure, like, yesterday. Think of it, now it can be the chocolate city, and the cheetos city, and the pizza city, and...

three hour lunch is long enough to get stoned and play golf, but not long enough to get drunk. if they had a real union they could get four hours...

50% is just average.

How frakking dumb do you have be to carry a joint into a courtroom? Even in New Orleans.

THIS, though I was tempted to bring one for afterwards.

// didn't, because I went back to work after court
// case adjudicated favorably, so long as I keep myself away from the indigenous constabulary for the foreseeable future

Doctor friend told me 60% of the patients referred to him are on one or another mood altering drugs like Prozac, etc. Then said, remember that when you're in town and driving around.

nomorelurking: I operate so much better whena lil high.


I have smoked for a long time. It got to the point where I was smoking even when on the way in to work in the morning. The fact that I did my job and always met my deadlines meant that I thought the same as you, that it had no detrimental effect. I have argued vociferously that this was the case. What I didn't realise was that, while it had no detrimental effect, that was because I was saturated. I was permanently detrimentally effected. I only realised this when I quit. My mental acuity came back and I was stunned at the difference which I'd sworn didn't exist. That's the insidious part of weed: it makes denial really easy.

That's not to say that I am not fully behind legalisation and all of that, and I still smoke here and there and I love it, but it does affect you negatively whether you want to admit it or not.

Taking tax money -- which could actually be used on schools or police or firemen -- and giving it to people who do nothing or just get stoned all day?

Why -- that's just hilarious!! I can't believe that some jackholes have a problem with this!!

What? Obvious tag "out to lunch" or something?

Yes we know why public sector employees form unions to protect their jobs.

For the same reasons teachers do while going on what a great sacrifice they're making because they could make more in private industry.

The problem with private industry is that it can and will fire you for being incompetent.

I don't smoke that much. I do appreciate your comments, though. They're honest and I like that. I have anxiety and other issues that are very much relieved if I have a couple hits. If I can get my hands on some weed, I only smoke from a bowl because i only do a couple hits at a time. I do appreciate that there is certainly more mental clarity off weed than on. Moderation is always the key. But, I have to say that as a herb that calms my nerves and keeps me sane, I will take weed over any manufactured drug that the pharmacies are pushing.

Mean?  Really?  What parts of the city were you in?

Given the many stories about how NOPD is out to fark over everyone for everything they can, the city probably benefits from running at well under 100% efficiency. If you save your city one civil rights lawsuit a year by being stoned, that more than makes up for your annual salary....

Goddammit I hate to see a potentially good headline go to waste. Where to start? Let's see:

1. He is a city attorney, not a prosecutor

2. His wife is currently running in a hot race for city council. Imagine being a fly on the wall in the Cantrell house right now. Hoo boy

3. Best of all: his Dad was the freaking judge. I mean, that's gold! How could you let that one go, Subby?

New Orleans is the only place I have ever been where a dealer followed me down the sidewalk repeatedly asking me to buy pot. And when I said "no thanks, I have enough on me," he still took me somewhere to get acid from someone else. In fact, now that I think of it, his opening line was, "So, do you like to smoke pot?" Wish a guy would come up and beg me to buy pot now. Guess I should move to New Orleans. The rules there are...different.

Fair enough and I didn't realise your situation, so apologies for generalising when it's clear that you have a need whereas mine was more a "want". But yes, everything in moderation...including moderation! Out of interest, have you heard of or tried an Iolite? It's a pocket vaporiser and it is FANTASTIC! Have a look at one of you can, they're great bits of kit and very discreet.

Same in Honolulu. But, the dope is fake.
