Something tells me that the word "chronic" was chosen for the irony.

loudboy: That's because it is illegal.  Why the fuss?


This is FARK. The legality of any particular action is a minor technicality. All that matters is whether or not FARKers agree with the law. If they do, then a story like this gets a "meh." If they don't then pointing it out makes you a complete fascist/authoritarian asshole. As an added bonus layer of complexity, if they like the person involved, then said law (whether they like it or not) should be selectively enforced such that the person doesn't have to suffer the consequences of having violated it.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: lenfromak: Evil. Pure evil.

My friend's five year old brother threatened to rat on his marijuana using MS afflicted dad. The brother now works for a Republican think tank.

/sigh


I always suspected that Republican think tanks were run by five year-olds.

I have a question I've never thought to ask before: I've never done weed (long story, etc.), but I've never heard users rant about how it 'dulls pain'. Lots of lovely descriptions of the things it does, but dulled pain isn't ever on that list.

Until someone has 'chronic' pain.

Does it actually do shiat to pain, chronic or otherwise? Because you never see a pot head stab himself in the nads and go 'sweet dude'.

Bit'O'Gristle: Tommy Moo: fusillade762: Wow, the "friend" she was riding with sounds like a piece of work. Hope he's currently getting a regular ass pounding in prison.

This. Why don't we talk more about this shiatdick.

/Don't worry, i got this....ahem...

You Sir, are a farking piece of shiat. Not only did you drive drunk, and roll the vehicle over with a passenger inside, you farking MOVED her when she told you her neck was broken, and begged you to leave her alone and call an ambulance, who have the proper equipment to immobilize her neck, possibly saving her ability to walk, and use her arms. But no, despite her pleas, you throw her over your shoulder like a sack of potatoes, severing her spinal cord, and quadding her. Then she begged you to take her to the hospital, and still you refuse in your drunken desire to save yourself from arrest, and call her mom. She was going to be a doctor, and a valuable asset to any community she chose to serve, and you have ruined her life, and her chances at helping others. You did this out of a desire to save your own ass from prison for driving drunk. You deprived her not only of a normal and productive life, but have risked all the lives she could have potentially saved by becoming a practicing physician. Whereas you, Sir, are a worthless piece of offal, a maggot, a stain upon the fabric of life, with no intrinsic value to polite society at all. You are, rather, a detriment. I hope you get ass raped in prison with a iron cot leg every night...so hard and so deep your lower intestine pops out of your mouth, and dangles to your belly button like a gruesome party favor. Die...do it now.


Well... That... That will do it. Yes, thank you.

Weaver95: crush the weak, smash the sick down and make them pay for needing help! it's what Jesus would have wanted.


Ummmm.... it's a Democrat administration..... (Thanks, Obama. This is almost as good as your not demanding Congress extend Federal UI extensions. 45,000,000 out of work people thank you.)

BarkingUnicorn: "We adopted a more stringent policy than probably other housing authorities," Reis (director of the housing authority) says, while acknowledging that it is likely time for the administrative policy on medical marijuana to be revisited.

"Weber says she's worried the hearing she has to file a request for by Dec. 19 won't be delayed while those policies are revisited."

99% of the things we worry about never happen. My money says she'll get her delay and the policy will change in time to accommodate her.


But the picture (also by the "journalist" -- the mark of a quality publication)! Look at it! She's in front of a Christmas tree! Didn't you read about how she got picked up like a sack of potatoes!?

What's wrong with you? Why aren't you outraged! BE OUTRAGED, you heartless bastard!!

The job-creating private sector is striving to give this woman comfort and safety.

Jack-booted government bureaucrats are blindfolding her for the death-panel firing squad.
