Much of the progress made by the feline rights movement during the 1960s has now been effectively eroded. Catnip prohibition and the selective enforcement of herbaceous perennial laws have become the successor system to Jim Puss. They selectively target cats of all color, removing them from Felid society while barring them from the right to keep mice on the run, inspire us to dream up cool cartoon characters and teach us how to land on our feet.
Droopy Dog has to be the catnip czar in that!
like aslinger’s boy said at that weed trial in NJ
“well i know because ive tried catnip”
“and what were the results, dr?”
“……., i turned into a bat.”
That was awesome! And so authentic — I swear I saw that film in school back in the ’70’s.
Loved the little ad-blurb on the artist’s web page:
Catnip is all the rage with today’s modern feline, but do we really understand it?
Is it a source for harmless kicks, or a potentially crippling addiction? Is it a tool to expand one’s consciousness, or a downward spiraling path that can eventually lead to insanity?
Once and for all the facts about this controversial substance are frankly discussed, in the long-lost drug educational film that never-was, “Catnip: Egress to Oblivion?”.
Ah, yes — facts and uncertainty — sounds so… familiar! And this from the credits at the end of the film — sounds vaguely familiar too:

Man, it’s like deja vu all over again — I must be experiencing flashbacks!
unlike humans and cannabis, this film suggests in the end that cats will have to decide for themselves if the risks of catnip are worth it.
Cats,,,the other white meat. During the depression if you sold rabbit meat you had to leave one foot attached so the customer knew thay were buying rabbit and not cat,,that is where the lucky rabbits foot came from,,,still trying to figure out how that worked out to be “lucky”.
Lucky you if your rabbit had a foot.
The wife was watching a documentary about the dust bowl in the midwest during the depression recently. Part of it was about how the local jack rabbits were starving and were swarming towns and eating anything that they could find. So all the people of one town went out when the rabbits arrived and started clubbing and stomping the rabbits. But they weren’t eating them later, those rabbits were nothing but skin and bones. If you don’t believe me I can’t fault you for that. I doubt I would have believed it without seeing it on film. Heck, I barely believe it now, and I did see it on film. Who knew that jack rabbits could be so vicious? I mean except the members of Monty Python’s Flying Circus of course.
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Rapper Snoop Lion (formerly known as Snoop Dogg) says he wants to help educate children on smoking weed.
“”Snoop, who coaches eight and nine year olds at the Orange County Junior All America Football League, says he wants to teach kids how to avoid irresponsible drug use.
He told GQ magazine that he’s not trying to push marijuana on kids.
“But if they wanted to, I would love to show them how,” he said. “The right way, so that way they won’t get nothing put in their s*** or overdose or trying some s*** that ain’t clean.”
Snoop also has plans to back up his talk with some literature — a children’s book, to be exact.
The book, called “It’s Just a Plant: A Children’s Story of Marijuana,” is about a little girl who is taught the “awesomeness” of pot by her parents.””
Drug education our government should be using instead of the bullshit and lies they have relied on and is the reason we are all here,,,lies will not work.
Snoop DOG? ….wait….Snoop Lion? SNOOP KITTY!
“Hello ladies and germs, little Johnny here. I’ve just received my D.A.R.E. (Drug Assisted Reprobate Education) certificate, and I would much like to thank my awesome DARE Officer, Snoop Kitty-Kitty, for teaching meow.”
“For teaching meow.”
I love the credits.
Man, they even made fake newspaper articles to do scan shots of…and over-the-top psychedelic music at the end, a “Catnip” anthem.
Marijuana forum tonight in Seattle
The Associated Press / January 24, 2013
“”SEATTLE — The state Liquor Control Board holds the second of a series of forums on legal marijuana sales tonight at Seattle City Hall.
Hundreds of people attended the first forum Tuesday night in Olympia. Many said they wanted licenses to grow, process or sell marijuana in what they called a new cottage industry in the state. Many also said people convicted of marijuana crimes shouldn’t be disqualified.
The liquor board is drafting rules to implement Initiative 502, which was approved in November by voters. It legalizes the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana and calls for state-licensed marijuana growers, processers and retail stores””
I guess we know where dark will be then!
here’s a noteworthy story (plus a headline you won’t often see about Republicans):
It’s too bad he is wrapping one of the safest substances on earth with one of the deadliest,,it sends the wrong message to the tobacco compnies,,they may want to mix some in with the pot they will be selling.
A good victory for IJ and the Caswell family. Lets also not forget that the prosecutor is the same as Mr. Swartz.

I wouldnt even know where to start. Every time he tries to pass of a rand corporation study as science i chuckle to myself.
Here’s what I woulda posted there, had I not been required to register in order to comment (Kev’s not worth the hassle):
2. “The sale and use of a substance does not necessarily mean more people will use it.”
Fact: […] When RAND researchers analyzed California’s 2010 effort to legalize marijuana, they concluded that the price of the drug could plummet and therefore marijuana consumption could increase.
7. […]Buying pot in illicit markets may also expose users of all ages to violence, robbery or extortion. […]
Fact: Marijuana legalization would do little to curb the black market, especially because that market could easily undercut the new, taxed price of legal marijuana …
Fact?: legal pot would cause the price to plummet ergo usage to rise AND be priced too high to curb the black market? Weird Science! It lacks the coherency one would expect.
I thought it was poor form that Dr. Sabet linked twice to his new SAM project website and not once to the editorial he was critiquing. Some of us would prefer to read the whole thing and judge for ourselves instead of an enumerated list of cherry-picked nits. But I also found it ironic that those links are malformed and produce a 404 error response from HuffPo’s servers. Self-serves him right!
Why in the world would anyone expect coherence from a Know Nothing prohibitionist?
Heh, the dude is dense.
But the comments at the HuffPo article are golden. kevin hunt2012 left a link to a SAM parody site called SAMUEL (Smart Approaches 2 Marijuana Use… Except Legalization) that is absolutely brilliant! An excerpt from one of the fake SAM articles parodying Frum’s recent op-ed:
Although data are difficult to come by, I think Americans smoke more marijuana per person than any other people on earth. (What? We’re 11th in the world? Canada is 12th? Jamaica’s 20th? The Netherlands is 53rd? Stupid data.) […]
The good news is that many—most—young people will experiment with marijuana, quit, and suffer no long-lasting ill effects. The bad news is that the ones we catch will lose scholarships, financial aid, job opportunities, maybe even their freedom. […]
Not Sabet is forming a new group to find a “Goldilocks solution” to maintain marijuana prohibition. He deserves support because young Americans deserve better than to be led to a future where there are choices other than the two legal toxic and addictive drugs.
Pete: If you read this, please consider posting a link to SAMUEL on the front page. I’m sure everyone here will enjoy that site!
Hey wait a second…that lady says I’m supposed to be getting paid for my efforts. So where the heck are my paychecks? I’m always getting ripped off by “the man!!”
Kevin Hunt is a good guy.
DC, I fear that he may have a doppelganger. He’s adopted a second posting alias if that’s not true.
According to the post that appeared on my Facebook page, kevin hunt 2012 is the same Kevin Hunt….
I’ve smoked catnip. It’s nice. It’s subtle, but i do believe it was not just a placebo. It has a sense of warmth and fuzziness about it. I stopped doing it because i bought it in a pet store and it’s not made for smoking so i don’t know if it was harmful, but if i could get my hands on some pure natural catnip, i definitely would smoke it. Who knows, maybe you can even cook with it and in high doses it might be a hell of a trip.
