Another Ridiculous Anti-Drug PSA

October 3rd, 2008 by Perry

Another Oscar worthy joint by AboveTheInfluence, this video is 1 of the 8 major commercials in rotation by the most amusingly pointless anti-drug group out there.

Obviously whoever created this brilliant little short understands the importance of arming America’s youth with good, honest information about the evils of drug abuse. I know every time I’ve gotten high, I think to myself, “This feels just like a kick to the nuts by an angry horse.” This one is right up there with the stoners who run over the little girl leaving the drive-thru.

If the government would just admit marijuana is not that harmful to adults, it wouldn’t entice so many kids to try other drugs when they found out the bullshit behind these scare campaigns. It’s really that simple. Unfortunately, the government would rather waste tax dollars on moronic metaphors and over-stretched cliches.

Shooting and Robbery @ La Brea Collective, LA

October 3rd, 2008 by Perry

This is really bad news.

Some low-life garbage shot and killed a security guard during a botched robbery at the La Brea Collective, a medical marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles, CA. One suspect remains at large but hopefully the other two captured assailants are receiving karmatic justice via repeated prison rapes.

A violent crime at a dispensary goes a long way to justifying a lot of the fears that people have about opening their neighborhood and thus is the worst kind of violent crime you can commit. I didn’t however notice any mention of items being stolen in the police report, which is unusual in a robbery.

Could it be that the cops have a hidden agenda and are lying about the motive to make a fight appear like a robbery violence brought on by the presence of marijuana in a neighborhood they patrol? Or maybe I just watch too many cop shows. Either way, I’m keeping an eye out.

Governor, Why Is Pot Still Illegal?

October 3rd, 2008 by Perry

Paul Armentano, a cannabis legal expert and member of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws,) is calling out names. He lists seven governors (6 Repub., 1 Dem.) who single-handedly shot down reforms that would have made marijuana either legal or decriminalized.

Now get out there and put some pressure on your local representative. Remember, this movement has to start at the roots…

October 2nd, 2008 by Alex

The UCB guys were dope enough to stop by our 2008 Stonys post and drop a link to the video that won the Stony for Best Internet VideoStonervention.

Green Man’s Growing Guide

October 2nd, 2008 by Alex


The Internet can be a beautiful thing. It’s one of the few places where people really share knowledge, and expect little in return. Here we have a gem known as Green Man’s Marijuana Growing Guide.

No, not that Greenman.

Instead, it’s a huge, free resource for amateur growers. Check out the main categories you can get tips on:

  • Indoor Cultivation
  • Outdoor Cultivation
  • Hydroponics
  • Troubleshooting
  • General Growing
  • Specific Growing

Nice. Topics range from Hydroponics 101 to Increasing Marijuana Yield. Even if you’re an experienced horticulturalist, I’m sure there is a thing or two on Green Man’s site that you don’t know.

So go check it out, and thanks Green Man, in all your forms.

More On Lies, and the Lying Liars

October 2nd, 2008 by Perry

In the latest bout by federal drug enforcement officials to propagate the war on drugs, they claim to have found the largest marijuana plants, ever.

The article, brought to you by the fine people at Stopthedrugwar, goes on to further explain why some of the governments claims about marijuana busts they make, are based on street value. Moreover, the yield claims are greatly exaggerated and sometimes scientifically impossible.

Per Stopthedrugwar.org:

Cops often inflate the weight of their yield by using the fresh weight instead of the dry weight of the plants, BTW, so the most typical inflation is 400%; in other words, their alleged 10 pounds is most likely to weigh about 2.5 pounds, based on the typical cop exaggeration.

Obviously, these exaggerations make the police and their anti-drug efforts seem much more effective than they actually are. What a surprise.

Music Teacher with Pot Passes Out in School Parking Lot

October 2nd, 2008 by Perry

Oh man, you almost have to feel sorry for this guy. First of all, he probably works at the high school he attended in small town Virginia. And his career is probably over. And he’s living in his car? Or just got high and passed out.

Either way, probably want to find a better spot next time before you get caught in the school parking lot with weed on you.

Governator Fights Against MMJ

October 2nd, 2008 by Perry

Instead of trying to right a woeful economy, Arnold seems more intent on persecuting medical marijuana users.

Arnie recently vetoed a bill that would have protected medical marijuana users from being fired for a positive drug test. I guess you’d better go out and by that bottle of Urine Luck, afterall. Boo, Arnold. You suck eggs.
