The way it should be…

Thanks to a variety of sources for this one

A Berlin opera house is encouraging audience members to smoke joints during performances of its coming production “The Oriental Princess” to enhance the psychedelic experience of Saint-Saens’ drug opera. […]
In an attempt to create that far-out feeling, the actors themselves will also smoke pot onstage while the audience mellow out in the stalls.
Glocksin maintains that the opera experience will be “improved with a few joints” while the opera house asserts that artistic license will protect it from drug laws.
“It’s a test to see just what we can get away with,” Glocksin said.

To many, this is a shocking story, which is a real shame. If it’s perfectly acceptable to drink a few beers to enjoy a baseball game, why not a joint for the opera?
In a sane world, this would be no big deal.
