    I agree... WTF!?

    I lead a life where for as long as I remember everyone I know get's high or is cool with it.
    It comes as a shock to me when I realize that people are still indoctrinated to think that it's a killer drug.

    Here's an interesting twist in the Dutch coffee shop smoking ban.

    A victory for vaporizers.

    I'll pass on the Volcano, but how much is that chick that's holding it? :brow:

    How did they even find a scale that would weigh a particle that size? :rolleyes:

    Ya gotta watch out when you're in a foreign country. The laws can be ridiculous. They passed a law in Singapore in '92 against chewing gum.
    "The penalty for smuggling gum into the country is one year in jail, and a 10,000 Singapore dollar ($5,500) fine."

    Bad news from down under. :(

    Australia: Grow Lights Now Illegal in South Australia
    from Drug War Chronicle, Issue #544, 7/25/08


    The state government of South Australia has made the possession of lights, reflectors, and associated equipment that can be used for growing marijuana a criminal offense punishable by up to two years in prison. Also included in the list of proscribed horticultural items are carbon filters, evaporators, heating tools, stirrers, funnels, and flasks. Under the new statute, people caught in possession of such items will have to prove they have a legitimate reason for having them or face criminal penalties.


    The move is the latest effort by the state government to crack down on marijuana cultivation there. It also reflects the peculiar Australian obsession with "hydroponic" marijuana, which in the land Down Under is widely considered to be somehow different and more dangerous than marijuana grown by other means.

    "These are the tools of the lucrative but deadly drug trade," said state Attorney General Michael Atkinson in remarks reported by Adelaide Now. "They're used in sophisticated set-ups and two-bit backyard operations alike.
    This government will prosecute anyone who has these illegal drug-making devices -- unless they can give a good explanation."

    Atkinson scoffed at the notion anyone would be using such equipment for anything other than growing pot. "With the amount of hydroponic equipment being sold, you would think South Australia was the hydroponic tomato capital of Australia," he said. "Alas, we do not produce as many hydroponic tomatoes as hydroponic cannabis."

    Atkinson said banning such equipment was the best way to attack the drug trade, which he characterized as dominated by biker gangs. "It's no secret that those who have these items aren't planning to bake biscuits for the Girl Guides," he said. The move will "make a big dent" against pot growing, he promised.

    We elected a moron too. :/

    "And they have no disregard for human life." --George W. Bush, on the brutality of Afghan fighters, Washington, D.C., July 15, 2008 :rolleyes:
    "Amigo! Amigo!" --George W. Bush, calling out to Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in Spanish at the G-8 Summit, Rusutsu, Japan, July 10, 2008 :lmao:

    "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter." --George W. Bush, in parting words to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy at his final G-8 Summit, punching the air and grinning widely as the two leaders looked on in shock, Rusutsu, Japan, July 10, 2008 :o

    "I remember meeting a mother of a child who was abducted by the North Koreans right here in the Oval Office." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., June 26, 2008 :disgust:

    "Your eminence, you're looking good." --George W. Bush to Pope Benedict XVI, using the title for Catholic cardinals, rather than addressing him as "your holiness," Rome, June 13, 2008 :doh:

    "There's no question this is a major human disaster that requires a strong response from the Chinese government, which is what they're providing, but it also responds a compassionate response from nations to whom -- that have got the blessings, good blessings of life, and that's us." --George W. Bush, on relief efforts after a Chinese earthquake, Washington, D.C., June 6, 2008 :huh:

    And those are just a sample of his brilliance since June of this year. :rolleyes:

    And to stay on topic, Bush pretty much admitted his mj use.

    "I wouldn't answer the marijuana questions. You know why? Because I don't want some little kid doing what I tried," Bush said.

    Since Bush has never acknowledged using drugs, the international media played up the marijuana angle.

    The BBC emphasized Bush's discretion in addressing the subject, saying "Bush hints he tried marijuana." So did Aljazeera: "Tapes hint Bush smoked marijuana." Swissinfo, a news site in Geneva, asked "Did Bush smoke pot?"

    In Australia, the Sydney Morning Herald focused on Bush's reasoning for not talking about the issue publicly. Bush worried young people would copy his cannabis use, the paper said.

    From South America to the Middle East to Asia, other news sites concluded that Bush's statements amounted to a confession.

    Australia has always been tough on MJ smokers. Banning grow lights etc is mad ... excessive. I'd hate to see New Zealand become like that. We don't seem to take our (law making) lead as much from US unlike Australia. Here in NZ we tend to follow the UK a little more in our law making direction.
