Who doesn’t love seeing videos of old school weed propaganda? Probably the homers who made the stuff, but that’s irrelevant.
Here’s a great clip straight outta kicksville about a party full of grasshoppers trying to peer pressure a square into smoking some dope. Was that enough classic slang for you?
Funniest part about this is that the ’square’ gets drunk, high and picks up a girl. Not exactly the most solid anti-drug message I’ve seen. Hopefully, it’s not all due to the editing job.Alex
Here are a few cool pics from Flickr user Streetwave. Nothing like a little Amsterdam Christmas to make the Holidays extra-special.
He also has some great street-level shots of the city and surrounding areas. Sometimes you can get lost from all the coffeeshop buzz and forget that Amsterdam is a beautiful city in it’s own right.

Well, it looks like the so-called “party in a box” has done it again. That’s right everyone, Trivial Pursuit has claimed yet another victim.
I still remember in elementary school when the D.A.R.E officers came by and warned all of my class not only about gateway drugs, but also gateway boardgames.
It looks like Flurisha Cooper, a 21 year-old from Chicago, just wasn’t fortunate enough to receive the same anti-drug education that I got. She was hospitalized due to over-intoxication from playing a special type of Trivial Pursuit called the ‘Brandy & Blunts’ Edition.
The rules are simple, if you answer wrong you have to either take a shot of brandy or a rip from a blunt. Now this sounds like a board game I can get into, especially since I get every single damn question wrong. Coincidentally, that’s what got Flurisha in trouble also.
So why is this article such a comedy goldmine? Never mind the author being diligent enough to inform us that Flurisha was the yellow piece, it’s because this might be the first recorded case of illness due to “continually providing wrong answers.”

“Not for Hide & Go Seek.”
With the New Year already upon us, plenty of organizations are looking back to the year of 2006. One of those organizations (that we especially like to keep tabs on) is the DEA.
They have just released ‘The Year in Pictures 2006‘ and it gives some pretty interesting views into the many different areas of drug trafficking.
From Tickle-Me-Elmo’s to homemade submarines, the DEA encounters strange happenings on a consistent basis.

Continuing the proud tradition of stoner comedy, the THC Comedy Tour has produced one damn fine video.
Sure, living in SoCal has its perks – girls, the ocean, Universal Studios and where movie magic is made. But, the real reason most people move to Los Angeles is simple … to smoke joints with super heroes like Batman & The Hulk. Yea!

Why? Because it’s contaminated!
There seems to be a wide-spread trend occurring in the UK and apparently it’s been going on for awhile. There’s been several reports of ‘crunchy’ bud (a.k.a. sand weed) – smothered in 50-120 micron non-soluble high melting point glass beads – most likely used to increase weight of the crop.
A bloke from the UKCIA forums, budboy00, said:
…after extracting all the sand from a 3.5, .5 was sand. Yes 14.2% sand you imagine that on a larger scale. Its free money for nothing.
When the tainted bud is smoked in a joint or blunt unfiltered, the glass beads melt into a gaseous state and get drawn into the lungs posing very severe health risks to the user. While we’re not definitive about the health consequences of this relatively new discovery, we’re sure this shit isn’t as safe to consume as untainted pot.
Preliminary analysis by an unknown author states:
Smoking this has resulted in mouth ulcers and sore throats/ chesty coughs which never occur when smoking normally due to the good health and only occasional cannabis use of the subject.
DO NOT SMOKE THIS, IT MAY POSE A SIGNIFICANT HEALTH HAZARD AND WE MAY SEE A DRUG TAKING COMMUNITY CRISIS ON A LARGER SCALE THAN THE MPTP CRISIS OF THE EARLY 80′S.
BUYERS: PLEASE RECONSIDER BEFORE BUYING ANY MORE OF THIS, AND CONSIDER THE DAMAGE YOU MAY BE CAUSING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS.
OTHER CONTAMINANTS SUCH AS NATURAL SAND ARE PROBABLY THE RESULT OF SUPPLIERS COPYING THE ETCHANT METHOD WITH WHATEVER THEY HAVE TO HAND.
So please be careful out there, and be sure to inspect your stash for contaminants!
