She forgot to inject herself with the seizure causing medicine. How else could she discredit Chew-Z?

I doubt it.  Edibles are very easy to overdose* on.

*not fatally of course, but causing serious effects that even seasoned users might consider undesirable.

She's a writer, not a reader!

But seriously, folks: if you've never used a drug before, consider doing so with someone experienced in attendance.  I've never touched MJ, but if I did I know which specialists in my friend group I'd consult first.

She has ALWAYS been an idiot.

Reminds me of the first time I had a wine spritzer.

Woke up five days later naked and somehow entangled in a ballroom chandelier.

Truth. I've known of Ms. Dowd's idiocy for a decade and a half at least.

I bought a 750ml bottle of Everclear, why didn't they tell me not to drink the whole thing in a sitting?

I've got a bottle of Ibuprofen with enough pills to really fark up my GI system, so we need to ban it.

Hallucinations? Is she sure that wasn't the pot reacting with some medication she's on?

The first time I had weed brownies, I ate far more than I was supposed to. I had either stomach cramps or nausea for a while. That obviously didn't feel good, and I was pretty high. Next time, I ate far less and had a pretty decent state of mind. My preference would be to just smoke the weed and eat the brownie when I get the munchies.

The fact that she was given what should have been ample warning doesn't edibles aren't easy to OD on. It also doesn't mean she's a liar.

At the vest least, however, it does mean that she's an idiot that didn't want to broadcast the reasons why it was her own fault she had a bad experience.

Ok, actually, I suppose that might make her a liar, if only by implication, just not necessarily about the ODing part.

That's what you get for injecting a whole marijuana!

So, how's being dead?

I mixed in a little too much of that stuff once. I don't remember exactly what it did to us but it didn't feel good.

Alright, Maureen, just listen. Everything is going to be fine. You're very high right now. You will probably be that way for about five more hours. Try taking some vitamin B complex, vitamin C complex.. if you have a beer, go ahead and drink it.. Just remember you're a living organism on this planet, and you're very safe. You've just taken a heavy drug. Relax, stay inside and listen to some music, Okay? Do you have any Allman Brothers?

bingethinker: Hallucinations? Is she sure that wasn't the pot reacting with some medication she's on?


I think it's more likely that she doesn't fully understand the meaning of the word hallucination and figures it's the best word to describe any feeling of being on drugs.

Someone give her a Snickers because she's nuts.
 
2014-06-11 01:59:21 PM
My major problem with Maureen Dowd is that she often relies way too heavily on a particular rhetorical trick, namely the use of one-sentence paragraphs.

It's effective.

Once in a while.

Especially with short sentences.

When you make it your primary writing style, though, it gets old fast.  And when it comes at the end of an essay, frankly it reminds me of slashies.

Let me show you something. It's called: The Last Waltz... don't worry, it'll be over soon. Yeah, that's Ringo.

is anyone pretending this wasn't a person with a pre-determined conclusion magically finding the evidence she was looking for?
 
2014-06-11 02:01:46 PM
A buddy tried to give me a brownie packed with 'lazies', the thing looked like the richest of the chocolates.  If MN ever legalized the stuff I might try it.
 
2014-06-11 02:02:52 PM
Maureen's brownies were good stuff. She got it from a Negro. She was probably high already and she didn't even know it.

Next week Thomas Friedman will trip balls on MDMA and fall in love with a cab driver from Baluchistan.

As a Colorado resident and native, the media and psuedo scientists need to STFU. I haven't noticed one farking difference in life as we know it here, nor have my friends.  And no, I haven't used weed in many years.

So welcome to Colorado. Now go the hell home. We're tired of you.
 
2014-06-11 02:06:36 PM
Dowd is a hack who hasn't written anything good for over a decade. This was her pathetic attempt at my favorite website.

Maybe she should take some of those brownies and head over to Mitchell Bros. I'd watch that video for a few minutes.

I'm sure it's her paycheck reacting to what her boss wants people to believe.

That's not a single serving size? Talk about an accident waiting to happen.

2014-06-11 02:10:14 PM
The question I want answered is if it was so bad why has she been back to Denver six times in the last three weeks and why is she trying to establish residency in Colorado?  The lady doth protest too much

bingethinker: Hallucinations? Is she sure that wasn't the pot reacting with some medication she's on?


Yes, it can happen if the weed is way too strong.  In early 2001 I went to Amsterdam and had some of their good stuff, it was mostly auditory hallucinations and wavy visuals.  And I had a tolerance back them too.  I imagine the stuff in Colorado now is of equivalent strength and quality or better.

What i was thinking. "We've all heard about the dangers of over-drinking and alcoholism, so for my report I spent a week with the homeless drunks under the bridge, drinking at least a fifth of vodak every day. I can't believe that anyone does this drug, or even wants it legal!"

I once had an asthma attack while I was on edibles back before I got an inhaler. I also had eaten two or three times as much as I should have, because the person who gave it to me neglected to tell me how incredibly strong they had made it. Feeling paranoid / panicked and oxygen deprived at the same time is no fun at all. I can see why some people think they are dying.
That being said, shiat happens, and she's a moron for writing a condemning article based on her bad trip.

I have this complaint about many "news" articles too, except that they tend not to have short sentences, but rather long run-on sentences that take up several lines to make it look like an entire paragraph, which introduces an almost valley-girl tone to the article, regardless of the seriousness of the topic.

Then, instead of indenting a line like a normal writer, there's this stupid empty line between sentence-paragraphs, which seems to have been adopted by Microsoft as well, since Word now defaults to putting an extra space after a paragraph, making any reports I type up overly-long and stupid-looking unless I go out of my way to set some decent preferences.

I just love the idea of the Denver Post having a cannabis section. I also saw this interview on PBS and massively enjoyed watching Sreenivasan struggling to find a TV-ready form of words to say, "but won't our corporate masters be displeased that you aren't self-censoring and pushing the Reefer Madness agenda?"
