Did you hear about that girl who was fined for trying to sell lemonade at the fair?

This isn't the lead in to a joke, it really happened.

People, the government doesn't want you to find ways to lift yourselves out of poverty. Any time someone like this 4th grader or the lemonade stand girl try to better themselves, the government stomps on them.

Even this is not entirely true, we're a ways away from the federal law changing.

but not if you're in 4th grade

As well it should not be.

We are irresponsible. That's why a lot of the homeless people we see are cannabis smokers, and why corporations lose $148 Billion annually on workers calling in sick from the ills of cannabis abuse.

I myself have almost gone homeless a few times from losing jobs due to calling in sick from too much cannabis use the previous night.

Where does "let" come in? They didn't know about it. Just like my parents, and yours and every Farker's out there, didn't know about half the shiat we pulled when we were kids.

I'm only surprises me that no one will be expelled or suspended in some blaze of no-tolerance idiocy that is so sadly the norm these days.

The article never says the parents LET them do anything. in fact, it goes into detail about the school sending out newsletters reminding the parents to secure their stash, making me think parents had no knowledge of this until the kids were busted. Please continue though, do not let facts stand i the way of proving a point by admonishing someone clearly exaggerating.

The article goes full-blown Fox News at the end.  FTA:

"Denver police say a man ate marijuana-infused candy before shooting and killing his wife last week, an attack that dispatchers heard during a 911 call the woman placed.

Her death followed that of a Wyoming college student who ate well over the recommended dose of a marijuana-laced cookie and jumped to his death from a hotel balcony in Denver."

Obviously, marijuana is the devil.  Nobody tell the editor about the amount of alcohol-fueled homicides and traffic accidents that occur daily, in  every single state.

You need to learn basic reading comprehension. Here's a lesson: when I said the parents let their kids bring pot to school. the use of the word "let" here doesnt imply that the parents gave the kids pot. For example, when you read about how a cop let a robber get away, do you imagine that the cop standing aside and showing him the exit route? No, it means that the cop was a shiatty cop who tried and failed at catching the robber. Just like how these parents are shiatty parents who tried and failed at parenting.

Well... yeah?

Colorado took the obvious, logical legalization route of making the possession/distribution laws analogous to alcohol.  You have to be 21 to do either.

Letting your kids make off with your weed is similar to letting them make off with your whiskey-- sure, it happens, and when they're in their late teens it's essentially inevitable, but as a parent you have a basic duty to at least take reasonable precautions against it and if your ten-year-old is successfully circumventing whatever you've set up you  do kind of fail as a parent (in addition to violating the law).

// I was tempted to use a gun analogy just to boot up a flame-war, but that doesn't really hold up that well since the gun is much more dangerous and taking it to school implies some active malice on the kid's part.

A kid taking a gun to school doesn't imply "active malice". Much more likely, it implies a kid trying to impress other kids and parents not understanding how a gun safe works.

True, if it's a 4th-grader it's much more likely that the kid's just the dumbass child of a couple dumbass parents.  Still a significant chance of there being an intent to shoot somebody, though, we've had FARK threads about kids as young as second grade pulling that shiat with intent (generally unsuccessfully).

Obviously, marijuana is the devil.  Nobody tell the editor about the amount of alcohol-fueled homicides and traffic accidents that occur daily, in  every single state.


The guy who shot his wife after allegedly consuming edibles came to light in the context of a few news stories on shiatty 911 response time. A few local media outlets have been doing specials on 911 response times, and the guy's wife was apparently on the phone with the 911 operator for like eleven minutes before he shot her. It was only later that the allegations about edibles came to light, and pretty much nothing solid has been reported on that. Even if he did consume edibles, he shot her because he was a domestic abuser and there's no apparent causal relationship to the pot.

The Wyoming college student, on the other hand, actually did jump off a balcony because he was super stoned. But that was one guy.
