Maybe legislatures would pass better laws…

Strong smell of marijuana reported inside Colorado Capitol Wednesday morning

A strong smell of marijuana was reported inside the Colorado Capitol Wednesday morning, 7NEWS Reporter Russell Haythorn confirmed.

The entire Senate chamber smelled like marijuana, said Doug Schepman, Communications Director for the Senate Democrats.

Senate President John Morse cracked up fellow lawmakers during the session by asking: “Do you smell marijuana in here, or is it just me?”

On the recording of the morning’s proceedings, Morse can be heard asking, “If the Sergeants would please douse all the doobies in the area.”

    This Onion article comes to mind:

    Back Of Library Smells Like Weed (1:45)

    “Library patrons in Pennington, IL report that something definitely smells like weed back in the young adult section.”

    Weed smoke in the capital building . . . so is that how the ‘Munchies Act of 2013’ was created -is that the only time when real bacon and ham is stuffed into the bills and proposals for those hungry Dems and GOPs. “Hay -Rep, Brown -can you spot me a $20 until next week for some Kush?” “I can do better than that: I’ll give you the gram out of my dugout and you can pay me back next week.” “Sounds good, Rep Brown, I bet it’s perfectly legal under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act -you fronting me a gram.” “Hey, if we sell this stuff to Wyoming –won’t that be under our powers designated in the interstate commerce?”

    It’s good to see that they’re taking A-64 seriously. But why the assumption that they’re smoking? The lights over seeds started on December 10* would have gone to 12 on/12 off about 2-3 weeks ago and now would be the about the right time that the girls would be getting smelly. Time to appropriate the funds for a carbon filter Senators. Better yet quit wasting taxpayer money and let a hydro store outfit your room in exchange for being the official grow op equipment supplier of the Colorado Senate. Shit, you could probably extort some cash for the slush fund on top of the free equipment. There’s a lot of business owners who would think that a very attractive feather in their cap.

    Sorry, got so excited I forgot to tiny URL it.
    DOGHUMPINGSONSOFSYPHILITICGERBILS!

    • just punched a hole in my ‘puter with that URL… duck tape!

      yeah, I saw that posted it at Why suspicion-less employment drug testing is a bad idea 13 hours ago. Where ya been? Don’t read my comments? Is it my lack of head hair? I showered last month…

      • darkcycle

        Sorry, I been futzing with my ‘puter for the last two days. I got 11 IMPORTANT updates from Microsquish, and ever since this thing updated, both browsers aren’t working right. Firefox won’t let me into Facebook or any news site, and Explorer won’t let me access my e-mail. Iv’e been trying to get this thing sorted out and….well…it’s still f*cked.
        P.S. I did actually miss that one. I look to the Rss feed and if it’s ten comments or so back, or it’s on an old thread, I sometimes don’t go all the way bak to the last post I read…sorry, again.

      Ugh, there’s only one way for a gerbil to get syphilis. It’s disturbing enough to me when I eat something with grilled onions.

      OT: is there any band/musician in the world that Eric Clapton hasn’t jammed with? I swear that it doesn’t matter what I search for on youtube his name comes up. A search for “syphilitic gerbils” returns “Wonderful Tonight”. OK, that song is kind of gay but this association is beyond the pale. Then again a video of Colin Powell being returned is amusing since my decades old name for him is “Deep Rectum”. I almost always enjoy watching Sean Hannity being insulted as well.

      I just watched Mr. Clapton play “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” the other day and I’m scared to death by the idea of searching his name with Liberace. Some things really are better left unthought, some searches are better left unsearched, some links are better left unlinked.

    Here is some more humor/truth from a man I honestly respect and enjoy watching….. yes, I understand his ego is a bit much at times, but are any of us perfect? http://bit.ly/VSJkvr #mmot

      Oh my god, are there gerbils in the reefer now?

      OK, OK, gay gerbil jokes are decades out of date, but so am I. I apologize.

  • Firefighter Frank

    I’m a musician and Clapton has not jammed with me, dammit.
