Well that's gonna put Radio Shack and The Container Store out of business pretty quickly.

Simard is a former alcoholic and a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. She has been sober for 12 years.

Ah, there we go.

Is there a Stupid-Facial-Piercings Anonymous?  Cause she should totally join that too.

You know, in addition to being a parent you can also be a teacher.  Teach your child how to deal with such thing than you won't feel the need to impose such restrictive measures on others.  If your child takes up drugs because to local market is selling small baggies, perhaps the problem doesn't lie within the system since they're has been numerous children to pass through this world with such things available, and have not taken to drugs.  Though, clearly, your parents were not up to the task so I guess you didn't get to learn from them.

Why should those of us who can control our drugs suffer because you weak willed bastards can't handle your shiat?

His bedtime stories are about mommy's problems.

take that shiat out of your face so i can take you seriously.

Every one knows those things are for pot, Metalface McDrunky. If you don't use, and have a positive relationship with your child YOUR child should be fine. leave everyone else's children to themselves.

"Simard is a former alcoholic and a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. She has been sober for 12 years. "

That explains a lot.
 
2013-09-03 05:12:00 PM  
I wonder how she feels about pipes,because I'd love to make her one...hell, I'd even give it to her.

Can't take five farking minute to talk to her child.

Alligator clips? We used to roll up a cover of a matchbook or rolling paper holder and put the joint in there to smoke it - called it a 'crutch'. We'd get a little bit of yucky smoke taste when the joint got too short and burned the crutch, but that was a lot better than inhaling a burning roach, which used to be a problem when we tried to use an alligator clip.

No wonder the kid looks terrified. Imagine the years of beatings he'll face now that his photo has been published.

By the looks of her, you would think that's the highest level of communication she can reach.
 
2013-09-03 05:14:11 PM  
And now she's a gambling addict?

I hate "reformed" asshats trying to impose their lack of personal discipline on the rest of us.
 
2013-09-03 05:14:18 PM  
Yup taking them away will solve the problem.
 
2013-09-03 05:15:38 PM  
I guess removing it from store windows will make it disappear entirely, thus saving you the effort of having an actual reality-based conversation with your crotch-fruit.

I recently went on a date with a woman who has been filling in for her sister-in-law (deployed in the air force) by taking care of her 1-year-old nephew. She used to want a child of her own and now, after experiencing how difficult it is, does not. I'm thinking just like you have to join the military in Israel, we should require some sort of child-raising training for 18-year-olds. Or you can opt out of the training and opt into a sterilization program.
 
2013-09-03 05:15:39 PM  
Roach clips? Who rolls joints anymore?
 
2013-09-03 05:15:57 PM  
So the poster child for responsible decisions wants to impose her ideas on everyone else?

How about no?

Take those thumbtacks out of your face and we'll consider it.

Paper clips and Home Depot brass screens.  Not at the same time of course.

Yep, because

Simard is a former alcoholic and a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.

Former drughead skank is now a self-appointed moral crusader.  And just like the "born again" Christians, she feels that the fact that she was able to "overcome" her previous life give her unquestionable righteous authority.

I want to rip each of those ugly farking studs out of her smug face and beat her with them.

Probably banned.

Her efforts have gotten her banned from Greenwood Mall. Simard said similar products are displayed in other retail outlets for shoppers of any age to see.

Stop making fun of her, guys! Don't you remember how happy you were as a child, and how that all changed the first time you inadvertently laid eyes on a bong?

Well, yeah.  Religious organizations pretty much have this kind of stupidity as their primary MO.

And something about onions on belts, which was the fashion at the time, you know...

Nothing worse than a reformed whatever she is. Wait until she goes to give her kid a talk about drugs and alcohol and he finds an SD card in a camera in the closet full of her wild and crazy days.

She's a now sober alchi and narco.  Chances are, she has, or had, impulse control issues and I'd guess her kid is going to go down the same path.  Much easier to bubblewrap the world than deal with temptation that you are semi-wired to fall into.

What are her views on mason jars, I prefer glass over plastic when storing my smokable perishables.

Thank goodness I'm at the library and I don't have to replace the monitor.

2013-09-03 05:20:47 PM  
if my kid is in a head shop (he's 4), then I have a bigger problem.  If he simply sees a Glad/Ziploc plastic container in the store, is he also scarred for life?  Should we simply ban all container type products (I don't know about this lady, but I can store drugs in nearly anything....).  Where does one draw the line?  You can use a Bic pen to pick a bike lock, should we ban them?  I know people who can make a bong out of literally anything you hand them... should we ban them too?

A "reformed" addict who wants drugs banned for everyone because she can't control herself? Colour me surprised. Maybe she should move to Utah.

FarkerSnow: we should require some sort of child-raising training for 18-year-olds


Or just not place the entire responsibility of child rearing on 1 or 2 people that happen to be genetically related to the child. If child rearing was a societal endeavor and not a personal one everyone could have exposure to it and the limitations of a child's progenitors would not become limitations on the child itself.

yes, instead create a mysterious back room for the kids to wonder about.

There are products all over shops that are actually killing people, like booze and Twinkies.

Raise your own kid and STFU.

I was shopping yesterday and stopped in to the Green Earth store. I was getting a kick out of their paraphernalia boxes.

Her exposing her child to her awful facial piercings will do more harm to him than seeing a water bong in a display window ever will...  and if I may go off the deep end a little bit, it's the busy-body mentality of people like her that lead to everything from NSA spying to foreign military adventurism.  The world needs less people like her, not more, and honestly we'd all be better off if she just relapsed and OD'd.

P.S. She's ugly, too.
