Not to mention Anderson's double take on "whipping out the big joint" (slow down, girl)...Fun, funny, fun.

4. LMFAO! That was great in every way.

That grandmother's youthful spirit is precisely why Cannabis needs be legal everywhere, now.

Still wiping away the tears.

8. Louis Armstrong

said he smoked gage, or ganja all his life because he grew up in the U.S. and had to deal with racism on a daily basis. A creative, happy, boundary-breaking genius of a musician - who was arrested for possession at one point. As was his wife. Luckily he was acceptable enough to white America because, beyond his path breaking work, he was so happy all the time. So he didn't end up serving prison time.

The rumor was that Louis Armstrong had Richard Nixon smuggle in some pot for him at one point. Even if the story isn't true, I sure wish it were...

13. As a sixty-eight year old retired teacher, who hasn't smoked a joint in thirty years,

I used to tell my students from back more than forty years ago, that I was sure marijuana would be legal in a "few years"... or a few years after that, etc. These were serious discussions, and I was not trying to be cool or admit to having smoked it. Kids pretty much assumed that most of my generation had, partly because many of their parents were honest about their own experiences. I expect that a few states, like Colorado, in being honest, will spark a trend. This has been the most ridiculous prohibition (even more so than the tragic try with alcohol) in the history of the puritanical U.S.A. Both an uncle in a hospice due to cancer, and my mom, suffering from various ailments in a nursing home, had recourse to treatments from actual smoking to ingesting orally this demon substance. Fortunately they were in private institutions that, I myself, know I'll never be able to afford. At least our last three presidents admit to have indulged. I'd love to know I might get a few more tokes in my (increasingly achy) old age.

14. you might like to read this

about the way the the decriminalization push during the Carter administration fell through.

http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/lsd/highinamerica.htm

I may be too optimistic, but I think the internet has made it possible for people to see that cannabis has been "main stream" all along, just not among those who benefit from it being illegal.

For so long, they took up all the air in the room, so to speak, with propaganda. imo, the "Drug Czar" office should be shut down. We do not need a govt. organization dedicated to propaganda to keep the drug war in place.

16. Also, you mentioned pot in Viet Nam. My brother served there and spent

the following last year of his enlistment back home, living off base with some buddies. Tales of the availability and use of marijuana both "in country" and back home in the service were rampant among almost everyone who served among his friends and others I knew. Seems a blind eye was pretty much the case with superiors. As far as I know, my brother has rarely, if ever, smoked back home. Others I've known have, however.

Obviously they have never seen one rolled out of the party paper that came with the Cheech and Chong album.
