    Neither a working class hero, nor an artisanal cannabis grower, get health care benefits. The only upside for the grower is that he can smoke his pain away !

    Some of the co-workers I have had, if they went on strike, good riddance.

    Once again, ultralib Gary T. shows us that he can make humor out of anything. Illegal marijuana! Haw, haw, haw! Haw! I spent an hour counseling a devastated woman today whose 51 year old daughter is a lifetime addict to pills, heroin, all that. Boy, what a laugh riot! See it’s just those damn conservatives who oppose reefer who are wrecking it for everyone. Mr. Trudeau shows us here the real humor in lives demolished by dope. Haw! Haw, haw, haw! Zonker wants to grow dope. Illegal dope. What a laff scream!

    Calm down, GT has gone out of his way to be sure even idiots understand Zonker wants to go to Colorado for this because it is LEGAL in Colorado.

    Like a dog that gets so excited it pees itself, it’s OK, nobody is being a scofflaw.

    Alchohol – the right wing drug of choice. Mix that with anger management issues and the whole comedy really heats up!

    Trudeau is not an “ultalib(eral)”. He’s merely an Obama religionist frantically looking for story lines which avoid even tangentially criticising his god.

    Meanwhile, Candorville (by a genuinely liberal cartoonist who happens to be black as well) openly took on Obama over drones yesterday.

    Allowing people assess their own risks is a very scary concept. We need kings, czars, and safety comissions to protect us. It is for our own good. Freedom is dangerous.

    It is obvious that people should not go to prison for one joint. That is what is happening in our inner cities right now. We are incarcerating people for small amounts of pot. This must stop. Crime is already winning as we warehouse people for small amounts of pot and they come out with nothing and end up reoffending, only the next time it may involve more than a tiny amount of pot.

    Here come the naive conservatives again today…yesterday, one of them even suggested that we no longer have racism since we elected a black president in 2008! A lot of folks did not seem to get that memo.

    If Obama and Bush had grown up in different circumstances, Obama would have gone to jail for pot and W would have gone to the clink for cocaine.

    Of course, W was also a very serious black out alcoholic, a completely legal drug.

    Pot could never replace alcohol. There is nothing quite like a bottle of dry red Bordeaux to go with a rare grilled steak.

    This would be a fun experiment:

    Recruit 50 young men. Put half in a room with a large-screen TV and a keg of beer. Put the other half in a room with a large-screen TV and a pound of pot. Start the hidden video cameras. I envision the latter group watching sci-fi channel and trying to explain their concept of cosmology, after about two hours, provided there are also about 25 pounds of chips and doughnuts.

    I don’t smoke pot, I do drink beer, and I voted against legalizing pot in Colorado. Still, I would rather be around a bunch of stoners than a bunch of drunks.

    I think it is clear enough that Zonker is a waste case because of his dope addiction. Humor is a good communication device. But only, I guess, if you have a sense of humor.
