Those farking millennials.  Only blooming once every thousand years.
 
2014-07-26 03:55:52 PM
I kinda doubt this.

Millennials never did any work in the first place.
 
2014-07-26 03:58:40 PM
if weed were legal everywhere, they wouldn't have to move.
 
2014-07-26 04:13:15 PM
I think all the hard core weed lovers are just moving there. Millenials aren't turning that way.
 
2014-07-26 04:40:25 PM
Yeah no other generation has ever lived a quasi homeless lifestyle in the quest for psychoactive chemicals.

None. Especially not in San Francisco in the 60s
 
2014-07-26 05:32:56 PM
I'm starting to think "Millennial" can mean whatever you want it to mean.
 
2014-07-26 05:33:09 PM
I had plans to change the world, but then I got high....
 
2014-07-26 05:34:06 PM
Millenial communes are huge thing right now?

Halfway there, his mother told him he would have to give up the marijuana he uses to control seizures  ....

Does nobody see the stupidity of this???
 
2014-07-26 05:36:03 PM
perhaps drugs help them cope with an otherwise shiatty life, and removing the threat of incarceration helps remove one aspect of the shiattiness.

That's not true.  One of my nephews has build a fine career delivering Jimmy Mike's frozen subway pizza sandwiches for the last 3 years.  He thought about moving to Walla Walla 2 years ago, but couldn't give up his career here (he was almost a shift supervisor).

Tell them to wear some flowers in their hair and dispose of their PBR cans appropriately.
 
2014-07-26 05:37:51 PM
In their defense, Denver is the only city that gives out trophy's for getting high.
 
2014-07-26 05:38:43 PM
Hope they enjoy the winter
 
2014-07-26 05:39:02 PM
No one saw this coming?  I would just like to see medical pot be allowed. I have Glaucoma and other problems. My doctor has me on Oxycotton. He is now considering Methadone. Pot has less side effects and has worked well in many cases. My only concern is my weight. I smoked when I was a teen and gained a few pounds.
 
2014-07-26 05:39:35 PM
Reminds me of these dirtied up rich kids I saw in front of a shopping center holding cardboard signs asking for handouts so they can travel across the country. They looked like usual self-righteous college kids who've slept in their clothes for a couple weeks. I'm guessing they were from the CA Bay area.

This in '08 or '09 when lots of people were being foreclosed on in the area I was in.

I'd hate to think they got a hobo shank from some legitimately homeless people.

An informal survey performed at the shelter suggested that about 25 percent of the increase in population was related to marijuana, Flagg said.

So, approximately 75% of the increase is related to, well, life. Got it. Let's look at the figures...

Last summer, the Salvation Army's single men's Crossroads Shelter in Denver housed an average of 225 men each night.
This summer's average is about 300 per night


The increase is an average of 75 men in that shelter. 25% of 75 is 19 (well, 18.75, but rounding up seems like the right thing to do.) In other words, an additional 18-19 folks, total.

Yes, certainly, let's write up the massive increase as "Legal pot blamed for some of influx of homeless in Denver this summer", and point out that the total percentage of the average homeless in that shelter every night for that express reason is about 6.3% (19 out of 300).

See? It's shiat like this that makes me want to smack people. "Let's bias the shiat out of this article and make it about pot, and not focus on the real pain point - that the number of homeless in that shelter each night has increased by a friggin' third."

The word you're looking for is "addicts", not millennials.

If you are willing to give up everything in order to acquire a substance, you are an addict.

ultraholland: perhaps drugs help them cope with an otherwise shiatty life, and removing the threat of incarceration helps remove one aspect of the shiattiness.


My experience in using drugs and alcohol for coping isn't good. It keeps people from facing their problems and dealing with the things that make life shiatty. When a person stops using they are in the same place, probably worse, and still they have to deal with whatever was causing the problems before. The only difference is that they have lost time, sometimes many years, or sometimes an entire life.

/Terminal issues are a different story

Denver pot laws allow you to smoke at home.  If you were getting hassled for smoking at home where you lived, then you have bigger problems than weed laws.

Farkers have assured me that this is not the case.  They were clearly disinclined to productivity and responsibility before they ever tried pot.

Guys, this is serious. This is only the tip of the weedberg©. Once marijuana users get their fix, they will stop at nothing to get their next hit. The boundless energy marijuana provides and addiction is a dangerous combination, it drives these people to do inhuman things. They become animals, ripping through the streets, raping babies, holding up gas stations for a few bucks so they can go to Taco Bell and buy more weed from the dude running the drive through. Now that marijuana is legal in Denver, these fiends are spending every last dime they can lie, beg, cheat and steal from honest people to fuel their addiction as they drive or walk to where they can get the stuff without fear of arrest. It will only get worse. I fully expect this marijuana fueled activity to pick up, exponentially.

It's self whitening fabric used to make clothes, but that's not important right now.

It is a prescription pain killer.  I'm sure Daffy meant 'Oxycontin'.  Does that help you understand what he/she was trying to say?  I know it is a bit of a stretch to get Oxycontin from 'oxycotton'.   You understand now?

Boulder, CO in the summer is great, but it sure is expensive.  Don't know how they even afford the grass.  L.A. has a 'hipster' scene?  I live near the twin cities, I could throw my shoe near a coffee shop and have a good chance of hitting one.

At least it is only 25%.  North Dakota saw an increase of 200% due to everybody trying to get in on fracking.

Sort of, I think. You'll find a bunch in Silver Lake, but hipsters in LA are nowhere near as pervasive as the Twin Cities, Portland, etc.
