TGISF… It’s 4/20, What Did You Think I Was Gonna Do?

Yes, I like weed.  A lot.

Yes, we’ve done this TGISF theme before.  Less than a year ago, in fact.  But as I already mentioned privately to a few folks, it’s not every year that 4/20 falls on a Friday.  And the last time we did this, I left a lot on the table anyway.

No, there won’t be any education this year.  If you want to become educated, follow that link above from last year.

Or this one.

Or this one.

Or this one.

Or any of these right here, here, here or here.  Hat tip to Litre_Cola.  Someday I plan to get so baked with that guy it’s not even funny.  OK, it actually will be funny, probably.

But even without the education, there’s still gonna be some preaching by yours truly.  If you’re anti-weed, you should probably stop reading right here.

Yes, I’m still fully against under aged consumption and always will be.  I’m also still fully against driving under the influence.  Of anything.  And always will be.  Responsibility is a wonderful thing.

But also yes, I still like getting high…responsibly.  I consider it to be my right as a responsible adult who pays his taxes, doesn’t steal and doesn’t hurt other people.

Sooooooo…sue me.

(no, please don’t sue me)

Responsibility and Hypocrisy

The last time I bought weed legally, I did it here…

That is an interior photo of the Essence Cannabis Dispensary in Las Vegas.  You cannot even get into this room until you go through a process.  Included in the process is showing your ID and creating an account.  They track you.  It’s not a big deal if you’re not breaking the law.  But it keeps people from abusing the system.  That’s being responsible, IMHO.

Not ten minutes later, on the way back to my hotel on the strip, I stopped at a liquor store to buy some vodka.  While I was there, a little dude who looked young enough that he maybe hadn’t even begun shaving yet, stopped in and bought a pint bottle of liquor.  I was in line right behind him.  Was he of age?  Maybe.  I really don’t know.  But neither did the clerk, because he never even thought about carding him.  Just sold him the booze and took his money.

As an aside, when I walked out of the liquor store, this kid and his buddy popped the seal on the bottle and began swigging.  Then drove out of the parking lot.

The weed industry…the LEGAL weed industry, where it’s legal that is…knows they are under the gun as far as folks being overly critical of them.  No need to go into why.  You’re all smart enough to figure that out.  But they go out of their way to try to change that impression that many people have.  Often to no avail.

But I guarantee you, if that kid who bought that liquor was  under aged (I think he probably was) he would NOT have gotten out of the weed dispensary with any weed and then driven under the influence.

Responsibility.

If that kid had killed someone that night while driving drunk, very few people would have noticed.  Admittedly, myself included probably.

If he’d killed someone while driving high on weed, there would have been an outrage.  And maybe he could buy weed illegally, I get that.  But he wouldn’t have been able to buy it legally.  But as I said, I’m pretty sure he bought alcohol “legally” while being under aged.

Hypocrisy.

I’m A Grower Not A Shower

Last weekend, in spite of marijuana not being legal in my jurisdiction, I put some seeds in the soil.  I do not respect my state’s alleged authority to tell me I can’t.

To be honest, nearly a week later I was becoming concerned the seeds might have gone bad.  But yesterday they germinated.  And it looks like I timed it right too.  We’re supposed to have one last (hopefully) frost/freeze this weekend.  Then by the time the soil recovers, these little beauties will be ready for transplant outside, just in time for sun and humidity.

The red pot (hehehe…pot) is a few seeds from some primo shit I brought back from Vegas last fall.

So far, those are not doing great.  Not surprising.

But the rest are other various strains.  And they’re all doing great!!!!!  They get the morning sun from that window (that’s my garage, btw).

Just look how fookin’ cute they are!!!!!!!

Wanna know something sad?  This post…or even just putting up those photos publicly of my “gardening”…could get me fined or arrested.

Someday soon, I do hope I can legally buy, possess and consume marijuana without some self-righteous prick legislator telling me otherwise.  Or some redneck cop thinking he’s doing the world a service by being a dumbass redneck cop who…  well, never mind.

I’ll soon be visiting again into a jurisdiction where it’s already legal to buy, possess and consume.  And I fully expect (and would want) to jump through the legal hoops to do so.  Because I’ll know that some kid can’t come in and buy weed and then take off and kill someone in his car.  Well at least not until he stops at the liquor store.

And I might end up relocating there sooner rather than later.  Not just because of the weed situation, but just….because.

Enough Preachy, Time Foar Sexy

Well, I guess Christmas came early.

And I might too if I’m not careful.  So this seems like a good place to stop, I suppose.

I’m Not Sure How To End This

These days, I’m actually not a major pot head.  Honest.  Since last fall in Vegas, I’ve bought weed only once.  I could pass a drug test right now…no shit.  Which is not my choice, exactly, but it’s how it is for now.  If it was legal here and there were legal dispensaries…?

Hopefully my plants will do well.  Also hopefully, when I move them outside my neighbours won’t be nosy and/or call the police.  We’ll see.  Frankly, I really don’t care anymore.

As I mentioned above….

Eventually, I plan to move to a jurisdiction where marijuana just so happens to be legal.  I’ve even considered investing in the industry.  I’m researching it.  I think I’d like for marijuana to fund my retirement on the beaches of California.  That would be some poetic fucking justice right there.

But for now….

Smoke ’em if you got ’em.  But be responsible about it.

And if weed (or anything else) isn’t your thing?  Well, that’s cool too.

Love ya’s.

One of my home state’s U.S. Senators finally got the balls to call for marijuana legalization. I don’t know. He’s a Democrat, so it doesn’t matter now, but at least he’s moving in the right direction.

Good night.

Oh look, Grey’s Anatomy is pulling out the old “everyone got dosed with edibles” trope.

I picked up my kids at the ex’s house a few times when they were Netflixing that. It really was the worst goddamned shit I have ever seen. General Hospital is written at a higher IQ/depth level.

I’m starting to think that rumors here of the Attorney General dying are actually about a TV show . . .

But while I was looking to see if the actual AG had died and finding no mention of it at the NY Times and the WSJ (both fake news outlets!) I went to CNN.com and found this gem:

The monarch of Swaziland has changed the name of the country to “eSwatini” to avoid confusion with Switzerland.

It seriously reads like it’s from The Onion. In fact, I was convinced it was a parody for a while, but I guess it’s not.

I have to be best man tomorrow…to a guy from work…that I know nothing about.

I shit you not…I learned of this on Thursday.

Its not even a guy I hate…its a guy that is like in a completely different work department. I can’t even tell you if he is an asshole. I have nothing to go on.

He texted me like 3 hours ago…

“Where you at”

“I am getting drunk at XXXX”

“Should I show up?”

“Why?”

“My bachelor party”

“Sure” And i immediately close my tab and moved to another bar.

Its like I am living a Seinfeld episode! I never had so much fun drinking without ending up in jail! Like fucking noon I have to give a toast for a guy that I don;t even know his first name. I know him as “Spanky” and I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY THAT IS HIS NICKNAME! THIS IS AWESOME!!!

open bar wedding reception tomorrow?

JustStopDude

No. Even worse…its at a distillery, but they will not be serving alcohol.

I will show up with an uber, utterly shitface, give my toast, and then shotgun a beer in the parking lot, and go home.

I cannot fathom why he chose me. Even my friends know not to have me near important shit.

I am typically the guy where if we are friends and I meet your lady….we are not allowed to hang out anymore.

If it wasn’t for the fact I can converse in multiple languages and I have multiple engineering degrees…I wouldn’t have a fucking job. I am a literal train wreck. When I get a nose bleed…its from cocaine.

None of you would ever thing to expose your family to me. If your were dumb enough to do that, your spouse would give you an ultimatum.

This shithead from accounting wants me to present him.

I am without words. I got alcohol and speed…but no words.

Senor Weaselo

I cannot fathom why he chose me. Even my friends know not to have me near important shit.

Because he doesn’t know better?

Wakezilla

Start asking him Q’s! Like, why he chose you, what’s his real name, any good stories he has, what’s his fiance’s name, etc.

That is really weird

Spanky from DFO is getting married?

…and now the Attorney General is dead, because he was too stupid to see a poisoning attempt coming a mile away.

I wonder if anybody is going to notice his death either.
