    Tallahassee?

    Home growers, tap into the booming real estate market in lovely Detroit. You can buy a home for $5,000 and start installing lights immediately. Plus, you are already half-way across the country and weed prices in the mid-west are at an all time high! Go East young man!

    Seriously, Albany, New York beat us?!? My ’tis sad when the great ones fall. Hey, on the bright side though, at least we’re still in the top 10 :-)

    This is about CIGARETTE smoking, not cannabis smoking.

    Tallahassee?

    Fun facts about Tallahassee

    University town. Hella down folks live by the University. The mission to cop a sack is as simple as hanging out there.

    Everybody smokes weed in Tallahassee. Serious.

    At least as segregated as Oakland. All the white folks are in the northeast in old-school, 90% white communities. They inherited old ass houses from past generations of devils.

    Tallahassee has government-run utilities. The government seen into the future and switched up to natural gas electric generators. Natural gas supply is dope right now cause of all the horizontal drilling (remember when no-vision folks around here wanted LPG because natural gas prices was so high?). Due to that shit, Tallahassee has a lower greenhouse gas emissions than it used to and much lower than other surrounding areas. Electric price drops 10% a year in Tallahassee.

    Tallahassee has greatly increased energy consumption through the last decade yet produced it more cleanly than years back.

    Real problem with Tallahassee lies in all that uncured, country, indoor bammer. Worse than Eureka grows.

    This story originated in the
    Daily Beast, Newsweek reprinted the list:

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2011-04-19/420-celebrations-americas-pot-smoking-capitals/#

    Go there and you will see their methodology. The Daily Beast last year named Eureka “Americas Most Stoned City.”

    All these cities have a stink of weed. Like when you drive around Arkata and you smell smoke and skunk. So much weed you smell it form the road. That’s why you only pay $500/lb here.

    All are liberal collage towns too. It is best to control the population if they are intoxicated. Young voters put unhealthy laws in place. Just spend the day on the plaza. (bring your drums).

  12. April 30, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    I can’t seem to find this on the Newsweek site…..anyone have the link?

  13. April 30, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    Hi Fi,

    What do you think of the idea that pot smokers are generally less violent than alcoholics? Any thoughts?

    have a peaceful day,

    Boldtage, HighlyFried is too drunk or hungover to see past his own bullshit on a good day.
    It being the weekend, his BAC is probably near .30.
    Ya’ gotta’ cut that poor imbecilic shitsack some slack.

    Bill, I made my own personal poll of people I know who are violent, (and don’t get all over me Mark), looking at every person I know who gets violent or very angry when they use their drug of choice. Of the 5 persons I can think of who I know personally who are appropriate for anger management, 0% are pot users, 20% are speed users, and 80@ are alcohol users. Small poll but I do associate those persons with anger issue to be alcohol users. Methinks it is cultural too.

    Are happy men and women driven to drink? Nope

    Do happy men and women drink? Yes

    Do happy men and women who drink get violent – depends on other exterior forces if not genetic or biological, unknown health related issues, etc….

    Ok, that was the happy side, now the not happy side….

    alcohol and non-happiness – which is the egg and which is the chicken?

    Sorry for the cussing (not really), but my brother died from a lifetime of drug abuse.

    And yes, he too agreed with most of you that drugs should be legalized and are no worse than alcohol. He too, could not be convinced there is a difference between drinking a beer on a hot day and a alcoholic.

    39 years old and he will never see 40. He will never see his daughter graduate from high school. Not that he cared about her or anything else for the last 15 years because he was always stoned or trying to get stoned.

    I have lost all patience with our drug culture and the growing influence of drugs on our lives. The people who advocate for cheaper and easier to get drugs ARE fools.

    In full agreement with High Fi after 30 years of seeing more of it than the average Joe. Glad to be out of public service.

    for those of us not living in some never-really-existed 1950’s TeeVee version of amurrika (that would be you hi-fi), this is important and, yes, negative. To the grown-ups in the room it simply IS! (Not to mention the fact of meaningless media blathering prattle. [1000 points for using ‘blathering prattle’ in a sentence])

    I suppose by this logic, the jack daniels distillery in Tennessee should shut down out of shame for the well documented ravages of alcoholism in our nation and the world. (O yeah! prohibition didn’t work and, in fact, facilitated the rise of organized crime.)

    Moreover, medical marijuana is the law which means that MEDICAL MARIJUANA IS LEGAL, right now as I write this, as defined by citizen referendum, legislative regulation, CA Attorney General Guidelines, published judicial precedent, and a multitude of local ordinance. The only thing missing from this larger debate is rationality and good sense. in its place we seem intent on applying equal measures of hysteria; hypocritical, Carrie-Nation moralizing; and an ignorant, indeed willfull, blindness to the very real legitimate business potential of the “Humboldt” brand that is quickly dissipating to a non-market asset.

    Those Bozeman cowboys need to reclaim pot as THEIR drug. The less association between marijuana and hippies, the better for marijuana.

    The canard that Marijuana is a “gateway drug”, or that it kills or makes you crazy, was debunked long ago.

    The solution to drug abuse has been tested, tried, and proven long, long ago. Human dignity relies on a community’s fundamental hand-up.

    Once we return America’s fully-funded treatment centers, job training and placement services, free public universities, universal health care, and affordable housing, we’ll see an IMMEDIATE drop in drug-related crime.

    In Humboldt County, like most of the U.S., the majority of drug-related crime involves either alcohol or prescription drugs.

    Dear Fi,

    took your advice and re-read my post. While I will admit that my grammar and composition are not presented in standard written english, i would point out the informal nature of the medium and the venue. Other than the informality of the post, I’m not sure what part you did not understand. Perhaps I could explain the parts you are having trouble comprehending.

    I—-can—-go—-slow—-if—it—-will—-help—-you.

    Also, I only have one brain (not “brains”) and it is not in fact under the influence.

    Of course that is more than i can say about your brain which seems to be under the influence of hypocrisy and what passes for “facts” among the right-wing dumbos screwing up the world for all us decent folks.

    And alcohol is STILL the most destructive drug problem in the US. And prohibition STILL doesn’t work on drugs any more than when we tried it with booze.

    I would suggest that you get real Most High One, but i think you are just a nasty right-wing rumor.

    Hi Fi has now had his third Hi Ball and is snoozing. Hopefully he is not at the wheel but is sleeping with his mouse in his not so firm grip. It is hard being “old school” when the world has moved on. Mind benders and mood enhancers have been our traveling companions since Adam and will be with us till the end. Role on sweet chariot. “Old school” could be a clue in shaking out our friend Hi Fi from his closet.

    So, you medical marijuana users are calling HIFI an alcoholic and old school only because he is anti pot and a conservative? Pretty lame, I don’t see any evidence of alcoholism with HiFi. But I do see classic, chronic marijuana use symptoms with most of the poster here. (This is a left wing liberal blog, after all) Most of your rants are in defence of outrageous benefits, and/or denial of bad marijuana effects. Old School? Common you have to do better than that.

  30. May 3, 2011 at 8:09 am

    What are the bad effects of marijuana, Ponder?

    have a peaceful day,
    Bill
