Out of the Blue

Happy 4/20 day to all who are celebrating. It seems like this is more people all the time, as the once "demon weed" gets more legal and accessible every day. I wonder if that ill diminish this once illicit "holiday?" It's becoming one of those "but every day is 420 day" sort of situations. Or maybe it will just become fully mainstream and we'll start getting pizza places offering delivery specials for the occasion.

Weed is still a problem out here in California because there's too many people ruining it. We've got too many people (college kids especially) who use it like their favorite drink, too much too fast. Then they go cause trouble and get mad when they get called out on it and suffer the consequences of the trouble they started.

It's effecting the medicinal users and the casuals (i.e the people who know how to enjoy the experience). They need to step in and try to moderate this before this balloons on them.

We're also seeing an increase in homeless people that are out there strictly from weed. As in, chosing to spend every moment being high and not enough time getting the money to buy more. We already are full with homeless alcoholics. Those guys are bad enough that they will beat the potheads senseless.

It's not just the uptick in homelessness in California since that shit has been legalized. The streets are now littered with the used syringes of all the dopers who have to shoot up their tokes of Jazz Cabbage for a quicker fix.

Not saying you are wrong, but got any stats on that? I'd be curious to see the data.

My brother lived in the bay area 20 years ago, and pot was rife back then. Mailman used to come in my brother's house for a joint. My brother used to drive around smoking with no worry of getting pulled over. I can't imagine legalization has changed things that much.

That's because the melting point of bees is higher than the temperature that a wood fire burns.

When you smokers end up with lung cancer I pity your last days struggling to breathe until you choke to death. That is a horrific way to die. Having seen it, I would ask that you stay away from putting smoke in your lungs.

Funny how the horrible, capitalistic greedy cigarette companies encouraged smoking, and how evil they were.
But now, pot is awesome, no no harmful effects at all, hey let's legalized it everywhere. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong. And we're not like those evil companies at all, because we care about your health.

Marlboro Greens are coming, guaranteed. And they'll be stuffed full of additives same as their tobacco cigs.

5 Best Video Games to Play When You're High on Weed.

I knew NMS would be in that list.

I might add other low key puzzle/exploration games to that list like Rime or Witness or Abzu.

I don't know if your perception is correct or not, but it should be simple to prove with statistics. Do you have any that show a correlation between the rise in homeless and crime, and legalization?

This is both amusing and disappointing. Amusing Hamill is doing it, disappointing to see another reboot by Hollywood instead of an original film.

Total class act, this guy. Too honest for Hollywood, though. I hope that after the Star Wars sequel trilogy disaster he finds better jobs in other movies and series - he absolutely deserves it. Next he will be voicing the new Chucky (now called Buddy - or Buddi?) in the Child's Play remake.

He's doing pretty good in the 2nd season of "Knightfall". Can hear his Joker voice a little

If only an air tanker had dropped tons of water on the bees they might have survived.

That's a good thing or we may never have got him doing the Joker. No one will ever do it better than him. That and The Cockknocker!
