Stiletto Stoners

Here’s another milestone of sorts.

Stiletto Stoners by Yael Kohen:

They’ve got killer careers and enviable social lives. They’re also major potheads. Why are so many smart, successful women lighting up in their off-hours?

And it’s in… Marie Claire magazine.

As a friend wrote me today

I’ve been reading Glamour, Cosmo, Marie Claire, Vogue and every other fashion magazine for like 10 years and I’ve never seen an article like this – it blew my mind! It’s about how successful career women like to relax with a joint instead of drinking sometimes. No hysteria, no lies, and even the obligatory prohibitionist comment at the end was made fair through parentheticals. Totally unexpected to see in the type of magazines where the most political commentary is usually on Michelle Obama’s arms. I think if we’ve reached the fashion magazine crowd, we’ve reached just about everyone…

Yep. It’s a different world.

    Slowly but ‘shirley’ we are embracing libertarian ideals.

    And we can avoid forcing everyone onto the the sick train… that’s headed to tax & regulate town!

    Responsible behavior & education remains the key!

    More stories like this in every magazine please.

  • Jaw dropped on storey, eyes popped out and left two wet sports on the monitor … I’m simply dumbstruck (almost dumbstruck that is 🙂 )

    Honestly, I’d all giddy right now …

    Sounds like A major step in our goal. Women are a major force in todays society. The next goal is to convince the religious Right that criminalization of non criminal acts is not only immoral but exacerbates any conceived problem.

    There is still a very large group of people that believe the propaganda put out by the anti-drug cartels(any organization
    that profits from keeping drugs illegal,ONDCP,D.A.R.E,Drug Free America,the pharmaceutical industry,and the industrialized prison industry,to name a few). Only when Americans fully realize that the very people that are charged with protecting them from drugs have been providing false studies trying to keep marijuana illegal and denying medical uses of marijuana even with scientific studies and case histories of people that use marijuana as medicine available to anyone that wants too look,will we change these laws. And we may not be able too outbid the big monies in congress to ever get any legislative actions to end this war on drugs. It may take a court ruling,from one of these cases to overturn the massive anti-drug cartel
    that we are fighting. AS long as they refuse to hear these cases,we are just held off from our goal,and they know it.
    We have waited since Feb for the Justice Department to put a medical marijuana policy in action,they announced we had one,and now refuse to clarify what it is. That is big money talking,or in this case,not talking.
    In order for any “medical” policy to be formed,they would first have to move marijuana from schedule I,because how do you have a medical policy for something that is not medicine. And the anti-drug cartels know they are beaten when it is moved,because it takes control of all medical
    studies away from a bureaucratic empire whose very budget depends mainly on marijuana remaining illegal.

    California Supreme Court Lets Collective Marijuana Cultivation Continue
    By Steve Elliott, SF Weekly – Friday, September 25 2009
    In a major victory for pot advocates, the California Supreme Court has refused to review a landmark appellate court ruling protecting the right of medical marijuana patients and their caregivers to collectively grow marijuana…

    …”In addition to protecting patients’ rights to collectively cultivate, the Court has reaffirmed that medical marijuana patients enjoy the same constitutional rights as everyone else,” said Elford, “including the ability to file civil rights actions when those rights are violated.”

    Medical Cannabis 201: Education for Federal Cannabis Cretins
    Dr. Phil Leveque Salem-News.com

    I only hope that the NIDA cretins will read this article. They need to know how wrong they are!!

    Gerbals “tobacco” prohibition weasels around the citizens state intitiative “theoretically” with more authority than any politician or cop. Still banning sick people from their medication. How about 50,000 protesting in front of all the Longs and Wallgreens Drug Store stopping seniors and all kinds of ill people from their medications? Sounds barbaric?

    There is a spinoff article from this report located at http://rawstory.com/2009/09/professional-women-smoke-pot/ in which a psychiatrist argues that pot’s illegality makes it more addictive due to an adrenaline linked response to guilt.
