(Anchorage Daily News)   Marijuana is the most popular illegal drug used around the world. At least that's what Captain Obvious shouted over the Pink Floyd CD as he licked his Doritos-stained fingers during an episode of 'Adventure Time'   (adn.com) divider line 12

Slaves2Darkness: How about I put my foot up your ass


seems to be the only option those who want others to stop smoking can think of. How about you act like a reasonable human being?

You know, when confronted with aggression as a first attempt to engender change, most people reject the proposal even if logically sound. How about education of the dangers and then most people will naturally avoid it? Like smoking tobacco is in decline now through reducing adverts and increasing education of the dangers...

Oh, that`s right I forgot, the biggest danger is you putting a foot up their ass.

Slaves2Darkness: YoOjo: WhiskeySticks: YoOjo: Caffeine would like a word.

Caffeine isn't illegal. If you're not going to read the article, at least read the headline...

I'm high as a kite, I read what I saw and the word illegal looked like it wasn't there, so I went ahead and made up a bunch of my own words and posted them. Isn't that what it's all about?
We can either forgive each other for our errors, turn a blind eye and accept that mistakes will be made in this world, or we can act like a pack of hyenas and savage anyone that so much as steps out of line with whatever reality the pack choose to conform to. I'm totally happy being wrong a few times a day, you'd do well to let me be happy, then we'll both be happy and that path leads to less badness.

Something only a dope smoker would say. How about I put my foot up your ass until you straighten up and fly right you dumb ass. It is no coincidence that US children and young adults have gotten progressively dumber and less ambitious as Marijuana has achieved greater acceptance.


What about the decline in violent crime vs the increased acceptance of weed? Sounds to me like you're in favor of a society filled with genius crack head supervillains if you're against weed, man.

Headline should read Marijuana is the most feared plant in the world by the self-righteous.

Quark_Quasar: If you don't like Adventure Time, you've not only lost your sense of childlike wonder, but you're probably a sour old husk of an adult, too.

Might as well pop in a vhs season of "Murder, She Wrote", you old butts.


I have plenty of childlike wonder -- I'm a fiction writer. I appreciate that Adventure Time is very creative, but it's still a children's show. The same way that I no longer read children's books, listen to Baby Einstein, and only watch The Wiggles out of a perverse pleasure ;) -- it's just not mature enough for me.

I respect that it's a show you can watch with the kids and not be bored out of your mind, and there are some surprisingly adult references on a consistent basis, but I'm more of a "rude / black humour" type and less "silly British" humour type. I think if you like silly humour without an edge, you are more likely to appreciate A-Time.

If you're more about JCVD movies, South Park, and metal then it may not be a good fit. But it may be as well.

/I neither hate nor love the show, but my statement about it being on while at a "party" stands. Either kids are around, you're at a hipster party, or the next 2 hours involve watching a show made for elementary school kids. Not my scene, but could be someone elses.

And suddenly the popularity of Adventure Time makes sense to me. And also Regular Show. Seriously, those shows suck.

While it's blindingly obvious, it's good we did actual research. Because sometimes blindingly obvious is wrong. Not often. But often enough.

Well, yes.  It's cheap, easy to produce in a variety of climates, cheap, relatively benign as drug habits go, cheap, regarded as socially acceptable roughly to the extent opium was in the 1800s, and cheap.

While I wouldn't necessarily say that studying obvious things is useless, since it is important to replace common knowledge with real knowledge... I doubt this came as much of a surprise to the people compiling the study.

//The 'socially acceptable' part is going to give your data a bit of a bias as well, since people will be willing to admit more readily that they're using/trafficking in it.
