Kerli, you’re doing a heck of a job

The Drug Czar’s “blog” is boasting:

Today, California Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack nominated Director Kerlikowske for the 2011 Dr. Nathan Davis Award for Outstanding Government Service, based on his proven leadership in the Nation’s efforts to reduce drug use and its consequences.

Outstanding government service. Really? Maybe it’s because he ended the drug war. Or failed to include the word “legalization” in his vocabulary.

Funny thing is, this is an award from the American Medical Association. And Director Kerlikowski has not been particularly interested in what they have to say. The ONDCP website still claims the American Medical Association to be

“…AMA recommends that marijuana be retained in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act…”

despite the fact that the AMA has demonstrated a strong interest in changing that.

    If Shrubya can get the freedom medal then why not a new paperweight for Gil.

    It’d be neat if they exchanged paperweights…
    from twenty paces… overhand pitch.

    Then we’d spasm and twitch the rwb plastic, made from OPECker crude. The stuff out of work soldier kids are getting shot for. Face it thug czar your grand kids are doomed. They’ll be shedding the Karma you bestowed upon them, for your assistance in keeping this plant from the people. 73 years since 37. That’d be 2083 if you end it now. But even the high and mighty Czar of Dope can’t change the Banksters Weird Odors. Same as the Moneyslut prohib liars and war mongering cowards gutting Fort Knox.

    Oh Gilbert, your deceit and traitorous acts against the citizens of the United States, is more despicable than a crack whore junkie could ever hope to be. You just bowed down and got in line with the previous DEAth Merchants and Neocon killers. While farms turn to chemical dust and fast frankenfud and factory pharms have replaced Hempseed nutrition. Aiding the illness sales and service for longer term capital gains. Same as what RxGanja could remedy cheaper, without side effect profits. Jose can you see the scab labor ain’t free?

    90 million pounds of abortion causing, Tom Delay pesticides on cotton, not Hemp. Police Actions on all 4 corners. DEAth offices around the globe. Paying dictators to kill their own in the name of the Unholy Ganjawar. Prisons and Poisons hitting all time highs getting you coming and going. Madison Ave selling elections while Wallmart St’s bailed out for CEO resort retreats and making more war toys, to save even more children from pot.

    Well Gillyboy I don’t accept your particular line of horshit. You take your scheduling of lies and gossip about the reefer bogeyman and its hobgoblins. Along with the threat of narcotic hemp and shove it all up your puckered Czar ass. Death to the DEAth trying to kill me! I think there must be some Amendment that says even if the government is permitted to harass, pillage and terrorize me on a daily basis, they shouldn’t have the right to make me pay for it.

  • claygooding

    Can’t we get some DEA barf bags sold all over the US?

  • kaptinemo

    It’s like the medals the old Soviets used to give the babushkas (grandmothers) for sweeping the streets. It has about as much value.

    And as for the AMA doing this, well, they might as well be kissing the cheeks of the DEA goons that have made the lives of pain doctors and their patients a living Hell…when said goons haven’t killed their victims outright. Kerli is the ‘front man’, the mask of reasonableness used to mollify the public when the mad dogs of drug prohibition are unleashed against the helpless.

    It’s all part of the Great Disconnect: Sweet words of reason used to justify the horrific predations of DrugWarriors that happen daily. But because the public usually only sees and hears those sweet words and doesn’t see the bloody terror (as in ‘terrorism‘) engaged in by our ‘public servants’, the Great Disconnect continues. And events like this keep on taking place.

  • malcolm kyle

    With Director Kerlikowske’s strong background in supporting and generating prohibition engendered crime and violence, he brings a wealth of ignorance and smug, blatant disregard for the safety and health of America’s youth and families.

    This article is generating some interesting comments at the WSJ Northern Mexico’s State of Anarchy

  • darkcycle

    I notice that award is for “proven leadership in the Nation’s efforts to reduce drug use…” Not for actually REDUCING drug use.
    I’ve always wanted an award for failing to do anything substantive….but I guess I’ve never failed spectacularly in quite the same way. My hat’s off to ya, Gil.

  • aw heck darkcycle… who can compete with incompetence like Droop Dog’s? I think they need to hold a big banquet for Gil. Maybe even broadcast a TV Awards Ceremony… erect a statue… perhaps declare a holiday.

    Whatever happened to Obama’s pledge to bring truth and science to the forefront in his administration? Good golly! Absurd is too mild a word for this…

    I feel another Salem-News article coming on…

  • and I suspect California Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack is no friend of ours?

  • Correct, Allan. Mary has not been very receptive to drug policy reform, to say the least.

  • I am mildly amused by the fact that it seems that Republicans as a whole hate Obama so much that they’ve even forgotten how much they hated Clinton and Carter…

    and yet here we have Republican Mary Bono Mack wanting to give one of his Directors an award, and Jeff Sessions gushing over Obama’s DEA appointment.

    They seem to be happy with his approach to drug policy.

    And yet… the strongest potential Presidential candidate for 2012 in terms of drug policy reform is a Republican.

    Just is a reminder that drug policy doesn’t fall neatly in partisan lines.

  • Ed Dunkle

    Bono must have some interesting story. She married Sonny Bono when she was 23 (and I’ve heard rumors that there is some drug use in the music industry.) On the other hand, she took Scientology classes with Sonny. Palm Springs is white, rich, and conservative, but very gay friendly. And the California 45th district was five points blue for Obama.

    I don’t know what is going on. Is Kerlikowski a Scientologist? Are there Scientologists in the AMA?

    *puts on tin foil hat*

  • divadab

    Don’t forget the prohibitionists are the ones living in a fantasy world and we are the ones living in reality.

    They may not survive the revelation of their fantasy. We will continue to thrive in reality.

    Unjust dominion is not virtuous. Those who practice it will live in a hell of their own making.

  • Ben

    Pete, I don’t know if you mean Ron Paul or Gary Johnson, but Paul is definitely the stronger candidate. I pray I get the opportunity to vote for him!

  • darkcycle

    Sonny Bono was white rich and conservative. He was anti drug in the seventies, when even the President wasn’t anti-drug. Sonny Bono was Cher’s biggest Error in Judgement. Ever.

  • Jon Doe

    darkcycle: He was also a Scientologist, which probably explains his anti-drug stance.

  • Jon Doe

    Ben: I prefer Paul as well, but let’s face it: the dude is old. He’ll be near eighty in 2012. We can’t expect him to be with us much longer. Johnson, however, may be the “New Hope” for the small-but-growing anti-Prohibition/libertarian faction of the Republican Party.

  • claygooding

    Johnson seems to be the best choice if he can get the backing for the nomination from his party. It will be very interesting to see the twists and turns the Republicans will take trying to decide whether to run a candidate that will carry the popular vote and many Democratic votes or one that wants to continue running the prohibition train.

  • whether Johnson is a contender for the Repugs top spot is kinda irrelevant… while it would be nice, he has an advantage Paul and Kucinek don’t, he’s fit and not a bad looking guy. Intelligent too. Here’s to Gary raising a stink! (of course in a room full of… aromatic politicians it may be hard to smell a rose over the poo.

  • DdC

    Maybe as long as Libertarians fail to distinguish between capitalism and fascism the prohibition will continue. When Libertarians learn of the corporate sponsorship of the Ganjawar, then maybe they won’t keep shooting themselves in the reform foot so much. When DNC Liberals learn the prohibitionists are the very same climate change deniers and entitlement bashers and abortion and gay prohibition is a main goal. Maybe when GOP Conservatives learn that Ganja and Hemp are traditional and as patriotic as any song ditty or political hackjob lie to incite fake wars. Maybe when the media and Madison Ave learn they can sell these products, grown by American farmers and milled by garment industries or textiles. Maybe when blue collar workers understand it doesn’t matter how many prison or outsourced foreign scab labor jobs are produced, none of them get Americans paychecks. Maybe when the Cops see how benign Ganja is to boozers getting rowdy. Or when Doctors can’t stop hiding from their own patients and maybe when all of us start taking responsibility for our actions. Maybe when we remove the stigma on users and and put it on prohibition profits. Maybe then we can be legally free to fardup. Maybe…

    ‘Relax Your Muscles as Much as Possible’

    Feeling pretty comfortable now with what the legal system is doing to these nonviolent pot-smokers in your name? (And those are just the ones who end up doing hard time, mind you. Remember, 646,000 were arrested in 2000. Do you suppose most of them had a nice, restful night in jail? Do you realize, if their families spent a few thousand dollars apiece on legal fees, that adds up to more than a billion dollars, and taxpayer costs for lost police time are several times that?)

    Still going to tell me that treating them in this manner is just the way you show your “compassion” as you seek to “protect them from the health risks” of lighting up a joint, not to mention “sending the right message to the children”?

  • Duncan20903

    Ed Dunkle, somehow, I don’t think so. Drug use in the music industry as a whole, but there have been some notable musician’s that were fanatically anti drug. (I’m not trying to say Mr. Bono was a notable musician.) Frank Zappa for example. No, not a typo Mr. Zappa was indeed ridiculously sober and referred to drug users as “assholes in action”, though he did have a love affair with tobacco. Dead of cancer just shy of 53, great choice Mr. Zappa. In one notable incident he fired Lowell George, later of Little Feat for writing “Willing” because it was a drug song. Things like that just don’t exist in fiction.

    At the time I was coming of age there was a joke that “Stairway to Heaven” was a ‘sucker’ song that every band in the world covered. Directed at me because I was queer for the song and we almost always opened with it. I tuned my guitar with that song. Anyway, more support for that theory is Mr. Zappa’s absolutely horrid cover of that song. Hey, ‘Zapp’s’ is mispelled, suggestion: Zappa’s, who the heck wrote this spell checker? Also more support for the theory that people love stuff that sucks are the comments. Oh don’t listen to this one unless you’re one of those people or a masochist.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V4wbLdU8Mw Butthead was so right, there really are people who love stuff that sucks.

    Anyway, Sonny Bono’s opinion of cannabis?

    Sonny Bono appears onscreen to tell kids that marijuana is a “bummer” that turns you into a “weedhead” and will make you “trip out”

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0251221/plotsummary

    OK, now I have to see that flick.
    —————————————————————————————————————–

    It would be too confusing if sometimes things made sense and other times they didn’t. We might not be able to like pathological liars but at least you can trust them.

    Is that really Sonny Bono’s wife still keeping his seat warm? Remarried to Chile Mack I take it? So now do we need to monitor Mary Mack? Sheesh, she marries men every other month. She had another husband in between Sonny and Chile. It seems she’s in a conspiracy, did you know she’s one of 6 Members that won their seats after their husbands suffered untimely deaths, and that 4 are from California? Do you realize that’s almost 1.5% of the House and that 2/3 of them are Californians? Lindy Boggs (D-LA), Jo Ann Emerson (R-MO), Lois Capps (D-CA), Doris Matsui (D-CA), Sala Burton (D-CA) That’s 7.55% of California’s delegation of 53 Members of the House. Man this would be a slam dunk conspiracy if Mary Mack wasn’t a Republican. Do Democrats conspire with Repub lickins? Is Chile Mack a Democrat? He is indeed a Congressman. Wouldn’t that be political miscegenation? But that would be too funny to exist in reality. No, he’s a republitard (man I have a great spell checker, sees republitard as misspelled, suggested correction: Republican) But seriously, how many women marry 2 Congressmen, a musician, and a bidnessman in the same lifetime? In due time she may give Zsa Zsa Gabor a run for her money as the champion marriage slut of all time, no easy feat. Is it really likely that all those Congressmen from one state would die under such suspicious circumstances? Oh chit, I wish I hadn’t figured this out. I’m probably next now. Everybody has told me that the Internet would be my undoing and now it looks like they were right.

  • Duncan20903

    Petd it seems obvious now that the republitard hatred for Mr. Obama is staged in order to help maintain his cover as a Democrite.

  • Duncan20903

    Mr. Johnson could pull a Bill Clinton if we can help Mr. Obama get the perception of invincibility that politicians credited to Mr. Bush the 41st in 1991. No way Mr. Clinton would have won the nomination if Mr. Bush 41 had been seen as vulnerable. I doubt even Mr. Clinton thought he was remotely likely to win when he declared.

  • Duncan20903

    Link below to Sonny Bono’s “Marijuana” (1968) if you’re interested. Looks like it could be great comedy in the spirit of “Reefer Madness”. Joe Friday wannabe pounds on the door, Police orificer, open up. Oh no, it’s the fuzz. What are we going to do? Flush it! Swallow it! Run away! In the end, these guys decided to protest, LOL.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMj9-e48oVE

    Has anyone ever tried to flush or swallow cannabis? It doesn’t flush, it floats. Those stems really look like they’d just slide down the throat like an oyster, don’t they? I never tried the latter, the former is observation borne of experience, albeit just a trial run to verify that it could work. Good thing too, it doesn’t. Oh, both are felony tampering with evidence too. Technically even in a trial run if I’m not mistaken. Hmm, why couldn’t an inventive prosecutor call smoking a joint destruction of evidence if flushing it without cops pounding on the door qualifies? Oh I shouldn’t give them ideas. I’m just not using my head here. But that’s why I always wear a hat, so no one can claim I’m not using my head for something.

  • Duncan20903

    It’s even funnier than “Reefer Madness” and maybe Sonny really does like cannabis, he sure seems stoned to the bone.

    Maybe…he…was…just…talking…slowly…for…the…benefit…of…the…potheads?

    “You more than likely run the risk of an unpredictable, and unpleasant bummer” Yeah, like turning into a werewolf? OMFG.

    It actually flushes really good if it’s in a plastic bag.

    Rather large and remote Farmhouse in the Welsh Black Mountains.
    There are 4 cars parked in the yard, all with Dutch plates.
    The cops, who think they’ve found the Dutch-Connection, have been going through the whole place for hours but have found nothing.
    Everything has been stashed the night before after a tip-off, when one of the occupants remembers there’s still a 1/2 pound or so way up inside the fireplace.
    A back is turned, a move is made. Indicating the need for a piss, a stairs is quickly climbed, a toilet door is slammed shut, a chain is pulled.

    Some hours later after the cops have gone, somebody remembers that that particular bathroom hasn’t been plumbed in completely yet and is missing an outside down-pipe.
    Everybody trots off outside to gaze at the magnificent sight of the return of the prodigal pot.

  • DdC

    Zappa died of Prostate cancer suzy. What, he smoked with his pecker? Same thing Leary eased symptoms with Ganja bud on a ritz with cheese. Stop lying, it won’t get you friends or glory. You’re just destined for loneliness dunky. Zapp put on a decent show after reforming the “Mothers”. Then sold out to pop like sonnyboy. Oh well at least his kids Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen can spend it on years of therapy to overcome their names. Stuck in TV land, game shows and gossip columns. Zappa copped out on the actual “ilicit” drugs but not the prescribed Pharmaceuticals. Same as his fairy princess pop diva Elvis. This is the voice of your conscience baaaaaby.

  • Servetus

    I found it ironic that Republican Sonny Bono was killed by a tree while skiing at Tahoe. We know how Republicans and many arch conservatives feel about trees. Talk about karma.

    This assassination of Sonny Boner intrigue is fascinating. (Hey I really do appreciate the edit function but sometimes those Freudian slips are just too precious)

    the congressman crashed because he was being chased by a three-man assassination squad hired by angry drug lords. “Congressman Sonny (sic) was targeted because he played a large role in the U.S. government’s war on drugs, say insiders. He was co-sponsor of the Methamphetamine Elimination Act of 1997 and bravely stood up to pushers like the ruthless Russian Mob They believe the gangsters put a contract out on Sonny’s life after they were unable to blackmail him into taking the pressure off of them” —MikeEesNutz

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEQIWWcQ080 comment from 2 months ago. The video is not fascinating unless you like hearing about Sonny tongue kissing Cher. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, even I find the idea of tongue kissing Cher rather interesting, and the 20 something version even more so.

    There’s also some question about how and why Chastity Bono ended up becoming a man after gender reassignment surgery but that’s a whole ‘nother conspiracy theory, and this screed is moving toward qualification as epic so I’ll leave that for another day.
    …………………………………………………

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1996434/posts

    “SONNY Bono, former husband and singing partner of superstar Cher, was clubbed to death by hitmen on the orders of drug and weapons dealers who feared he was going to expose them, a former FBI agent claims.

    Ted Gunderson, now a private investigator, has told the US Globe tabloid that Bono, who served as mayor of Palm Springs for four years, did not die after hitting a tree on a Nevada ski slope in January 1998 as everyone believed.

    “It’s nonsense for anyone to now try to suggest that Bono died after crashing into a tree. There’s zero evidence in this autopsy report… to show such an accident happened. Instead, there’s powerful proof he was assassinated.”

    “This was an evil plot that was carried out to almost perfection by ruthless assassins,” Mr Gunderson told the paper.”

    …and yet there are people who claim drug dealers never did anything good for America. The men on the snowy knoll certainly did. You just can’t make stuff like this up! Oh wait, that’s wrong, evidently some people can fabricate such fiction. Nah, expert skiers never crash and die, just axe Michael Kennedy.

    Oh hey I get it, fabric—> whole cloth —> fabricate, it’s starting to make sense.
    …………………………………………………

    Oh my, they’re still digging into this. In 2008 this fellow reminds us of how the Clintons had Vince Foster murdered and convinced the gullible American public that he committed suicide, and that Mr. Clinton was also President when Mr. Bono was assassinated in 1998. What more evidence could anyone need? Thanks for the victim. Stay awhile and you’ll see him bleed.

    http://www.dcdave.com/article5/080406.htm

    I’m surprised that he forgot about Mr. Bono’s being one of Ronald Rayguns lackeys. Why else would an entertainer invite a politician to be a guest on a variety show? Shirley, that is certainly a good reason for Mr. Clinton to have Mr. Bono whacked.
    …………………………………………………

    I’m also curious about how U2 figures into the equation. Why did their lead singer adopt Mr. Bono’s name, and the single name style of Cher? There’s more here than meets the eye and there has to be a connection. U2 covered Bob Dylan songs, as did Cher. Tell me that isn’t a smoking gun.
    …………………………………………………

    Lord help us they’ve even got Sonny’s death on video. Warning, graphic!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGIKr5hILyo

    Yes, it is in fact graphic. Graphic nonsense!
    …………………………………………………

    Now I’m going to be all day investigating the death of Sonny Bonor and his involvement in forcing Americans to be drug free. Why is it these people blame drug dealers but seem unaware of Mary Mack and the growing number of widows of Congressmen who are positioning themselves to take over the US House of Representatives? Do they realize how many of of our elected officials are married to women with Black Widow spider DNA? But it’s so easy to blame it on drugs or the Clintons.

    And here, my prize, the Black
    Widow. Isn’t she lovely?…And so deadly. Her kiss is
    fifteen times as poisonous as that of the rattlesnake.
    You see her venom is highly neurotoxic, which is to say
    that it attacks the central nervous system causing
    intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in
    breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions
    and, finally…Death. You know what I think I love the
    most about her is her inborn need to dominate,
    possess. In fact, immediately after the consummation
    of her marriage to the smaller and weaker male of the
    species she kills and eats him…(laugh) oh, she is
    delicious…And I hope he was! Such power and dignity
    …unhampered by sentiment. If I may put forward a
    slice of personal philosophy, I feel that man has ruled
    this world as a stumbling demented child-king long
    enough! And as his empire crumbles, my precious Black
    Widow shall rise as his most fitting successor!

    Thanks a load Pete, do you never think of the human toll of your obsession with getting high on drugz? I could be trying to figure out how the Leather Dude from the Village People ended up playing keyboards with the reconstituted Guns & Roses this afternoon if you hadn’t forced me to be obsessed with the assassination of Sonny’s Boner. You think I’m fibbing?

    YMCA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS9OO0S5w2k

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIjuZu3JJBo : Welcome to the Jungle Buckethead (2002)

    Perhaps it’s just a guest spot as the Leather Dude doesn’t get any face time until 4:38 so for those who don’t appreciate art you can skip straight to the absolute proof that truth is stranger than fiction. You’ll miss the girl showing her titties to Axl though.

    But the assassination of a US Senator and musical icon is much more important than why Axl would hire a guy from the Village People to play keyboards for G’n’R, or even how the heck he can still use multiple Roses in the bands name now that he’s the only one? Oh heck, I see now that the original line up had a guy named Tracii Guns, and here I thought that was just a generic reference to the various side men.

    Now who the heck woulda thunk that Sonny & Cher could lead to gender reassignment surgery, then to Michael Kennedy, then to Bill Clinton, then to Vince Foster, then to Jesus Christ Superstar, then to Ronald Raygun, then to U2, then to Bob Dylan, then to the cospiracy of killer wives intent on takig over the US House of Representatives, then to Vincent Price and by relationship Alice Cooper, then to the Village People, then to Guns’n’Roses, and finally to Ben Stein? Like Ben Stein would say, “wow”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcH-3d-BZn4 , and all wrapped up in an indictment of the war on (some) drugs. I could have actually worked in Lady Gaga too but thought that simply beyond the pale. Can there be any doubt or anyone “in denial” that this is a massive, international conspiracy of absolutely staggering scope possibly making the Illuminati seem bush league in an unbiased, side by side comparison? While it is certain that I have no life to speak of I think that we can all agree that in itself does not disprove the existence of this evil international cabal that had Sonny Bono executed and his assasination covered up.

    I apologize darkcycle for all the mental anguish I’ve caused you in the last few days. Really, I’m making fun of the conspiracy theorists, it’s not meant to be taken seriously. I keep making the parody more and more whacked out because people keep mistaking it for a serious work. That’s really mind boggling, stoned to the level of a drooling vegetative state, sober as the proverbial judge, or anywhere in between. I guess I also thought that people quit reading these threads after a couple of days and that I was engaging in mental masturbation, seems I was wrong about that. I’m seriously thinking of starting my own blog, and that it’s probably time to do so with the uncovering the Bono Conspiracy.

    I did verify that my tincture was still viable today if that makes you feel better. It sure made me feel better. I still encourage you and everyone to shitcan the smoking thing, and that’s not a joke.

    No sniffer dogs in Holland Malcolm? Make sure those bags aren’t larger than those 3 inch pipes. Half a pound would have to be in a bag about 3 1/2 feet long to be about 2.5 inches in diameter, unless it’s brick weed which I doubt you find in Holland. Make sure the bags don’t break because it will float back up.

    A layer of teepee on top of the vegetation also facilitates efficient flushing.

    Actually DC, 5 minutes was about all I could find interesting, but then again the Bono assassination was truly fascinating and that distracted me. I’ve still got it cued up with the intention of watching it. Major international conspiracies against the freedom of the everyman are a bit more important than comedy for the sake of laughing, wouldn’t you agree?

    Seriously, do you really think I’m headed off the deep end and will soon be in the same place as DdC? Now that’s a scary thought.

    …our study suggests that cigarette smoking may be related to prostate cancer, perhaps through its effect on sex hormone metabolism.

    Tobacco poisoning is systemic. Just like Pythium in cannabis plants. Treat the roots and it just comes back. God it’s disgusting to wake up one morning to the sight of what looks like an Elephant’s having ejaculated in your reservoir. Oh yeah, we all use ‘heat lamps’.

    It just isn’t the act of smoking that causes the diseases. Why do people that use sublingual delivery of nicotine get mouth and throat cancer? It’s the tobacco that’s truly deadly, not it’s delivery method. It’s one of the major flaws in the dogma of Know Nothing prohibitionists. While smoking might not be particularly good for you, remove it as a delivery mode for cannabis and all indications of physical health degeneration simply vanish.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if transdermal patches and gum are found to be counter-indicated as health hazards in the future, but I could be falling prey to the common human misconception of blaming the so called ‘active ingredient’ when it may well be the fertilizer used to grow it that’s fucking people over. Amusing that the FDA has time to examine caffeine and alcohol combination drinks and cigarettes with clove and vanilla flavoring but not radioactive fertilizer, no?

    Duncan, did you know that Sonny and Cher once performed for the Queen of England at a secret affair hosted by the Rothschilds? Or that as a high level Scientologist, Sonny Bono, who was really 6’9″ tall was able, through mind control techniques known only to Xenu and a few select Church leaders, to convince every person on earth he was actually a short little guy? Was it HIM Randy Newman was really writing about when he penned the line “Short people got no reason..no reason to live?”. I think you may be onto something bigger than you think. F**k Russian drug dealers, they aren’t as ruthless as Randy Newman…how could they be? (BTW Mr. Newman is alleged to have mob connections, as did his brother, Barry Newman, who went on to dramatically portray the SPEED addicted driver “Kowalski” in the movie “Vanishing Point”, a classic witch, incidentally ends with Barry crashing a Dodge Challenger into a RUSSIAN made bulldozer). Wow. I need a bong hit.

    Reservoirs? Soil. Only good, organic, living soils, Duncan. Reservoirs and miles of drippy hose went out with “Flock ‘o Seagulls” and Mullets.

    Petition Delivered to Drug Czar
    Watch as we deliver over 52k petition signatures to Drug Czar Kerlikowske

    The Just Say Now campaign to legalize marijuana slipped into a press conference today with US Durg Czar Gil Kerlikowske to deliver petition signed by 52,536 people, asking President Obama to end the federal government’s war on marijuana.

    Daniel Pacheco, a Colombian student studying at Georgetown University and member of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, confronted Kerlikowske and offered the petition on behalf of 52,536 Just Say Now activists, and then 28,000 people killed in Mexico in the bloody battle with drug cartels.
