Don't Criticize It, Legalize It


It was recently revealed that a study done by researchers in 2000 proved that THC shrinks and kills tumors. The same study was also done in 1974. With this in mind, one has to ask, why the hell is it still illegal? Why do the feds deny us something so beneficial? Just how much do the elites give a damn about our health and welfare? Marijuana doesn't lead to domestic violence, hideous traffic accidents, and liver disease, but we sure know what does. Drink up, shriners.

In 1955, Terry Southern wrote a short story called Red Dirt Marijuana. After a couple of characters find some marijuana, one asks why it's illegal. The other replies, "It's 'cause a man see too much when he git high, that's what. He sees right through ever'thing...they's a lotta trickin' an' lyin' go on in the world...he see right through there into the truth of it!" Well, we can't have that, now can we? W.C. Fields said, never give a sucker an even break, and so, they're not going to make it any easier for you. Anything that might turn rubes into operators needs to be locked in a vault along with all the cancer cures and free energy devices. Nothing to see here, folks, so turn around and head back down to Joe's bar. It's Jets 23, Bears 13.

Somewhere, there's a think tank for Cancer, Inc, and you can bet that the brainiacs in there have no moral dilemmas in keeping the one-way train to hell a' rollin'. They need hemp about as much as a stag needs a hat rack. Sure, it's around, but it's "underground", and the social stigma of illegality is attached to it. A young lad can wrap his father's car around a telephone pole after experimenting with his tequila intake and it's all just youthful hijinx. But, let him be caught with one of those dangerous jazz herbal cigarettes, and it's off to military camp for him. We all saw Reefer Madness, but where was Cutty Sark Madness, or Rolling Rock Madness? I guess those movies only played in Utah.

If all this good news about medical marijuana isn't enough, it has been reported that pot use actually causes new cell growth in the brain. That's not what the drug war doctors would have us think, is it? And, now that a new strain of pesticide-resistant pot that actually grows back from its roots has been developed, it might soon be growing everywhere. That would sure beat a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Deal with it, feds.

I've just gone through your blog and I can see there are MUCH bigger issues in the world than the fact that you don't have a kid sister to keep you company on the job.

Thanks for clearing that up. Nice work.

You can ride in my cab, but you'll have to move back to S.F.

Is your cab yellow or checkered, or does it have four legs and moo?

I may very well take you up on that ride, and I just might move back there one day.

I know that hill you spoke of. I wouldn't leave you sitting on that mailbox.

I posted, (then deleted) a comment that said, "Where would you leave me sitting?" But rather than be clever, let me just say that you are a very kind cabbie.
