Being stoned made a San Francisco man (not the one in photo above) a better father, as he writes in the New York Times. As a child-free adult with a not innocent interest in dads, I will take note of this revelation. Photo source: Things Stoners Like.
OMG. This video contains the audio record of a 911 call *from* a cop who confiscated pot, made brownies, and then thinks he OD’d. Some choice quotes include, “I think we’re dead, I really do,” and “Time is going by really, really, really slow.”
The video also includes super snarky comments from the poster, and identifies the cop as Officer Edward Sanchez, Dearborn Michigan.
The Japanese media has broadcast endless stories for over a week about top Sumo wrestlers who have been expelled from Japan for pot smoking. Even Japan’s top sumo official has resigned in disgrace, and not a single person has defended the wrestlers, originally from Russia, or suggested that pot smoking is harmless.
This orgy of condemnation, shame and expulsion raises a few questions beyond health. How are these big boys going to pad on the pounds (or kilos) without a bit of reefer? Why are sumo leaders called “stablemasters” and what does that say about the humans who perform this ancient tradition? Which will take longer for Japan to accept, pot smoking or gay human rights?
Sayonara, big Russian boys! Good luck, ex-stablemaster daddy!
