    Does this mean that we’re officially a marketing demographic?

    Ben & Jerry’s Targets Ice Cream and Marijuana Fans With New Treat

    /snip/
    On April 20th, the company will roll out the BRRR-ito, available in scoop shops nationwide.

    For first-timers, Ben & Jerry’s suggests the Half Baked BRRR-ito, with one scoop each of Cookie Dough and Chocolate Fudge Brownie drizzled with chocolate fudge, topped with a crunchy cookie crumble and rolled to perfection in a chewy crepe-like wrap.

    /snip/
    The official statement from Ben & Jerry’s suggests this product came from the company mantra coined by co-founder Jerry Greenfield “If it’s not fun, why do it?” But we all know this treat is intended to satisfy certain impulsive cravings. Put on Bob Marley. Grab a lighter. And, now, grab a spoon.

      We’re already getting high on fiber

        What about the gateway effect? How can you overlook the fact that every single person who has gotten hooked on phonics started by getting high on “harmless” fiber? Harmless like a rattle snake! Sure, they all have a remarkably enlarged vocabulary, better reading comprehension and more meaningful interpersonal relationships, but is it really worth the risk? I’ve seen with my own 2 eyes the consequences and devastation of knowing the definitions of too many words without practicing moderation.

        I can’t guarantee what will happen in the future But when it does happen we need to be prepared to swing into action at the drop of a pin!

    Twas the night before 4-20 and Actionnewsteam reported that local police in my part of Oregon would be heavily patrolling the area today for “unknown reasons”. This morning we got the confirmation that, yeah, it’s because it’s 4-20. You know, Hitler’s Birthday.

    Today is a good day for taking a moment to think about the hundreds of thousands of human beings arrested each year in America simply because they possessed some cannabis. And everyone else jailed for drug possession as well.

    Last year, 25% of all the felony cases in Cook County/Chicago were for drug possession. In addition, there were more than 15,000 misdemeanor cases for possession of small amounts of cannabis in Cook/Chicago last year. Three years ago the Chicago/Cook Democrats told us they would stop making arrests and would start issuing tickets instead. They lied, and those Democrat “leaders” are still predominately targeting minority males for arrest.

    Today also happens to be the petition deadline for Ds and Rs who want to run to replace the disgraced Peoria area US Representative Aaron Schock. The Ds needed 626 signatures to be on the ballot, and the Rs needed 1,014. Any independent candidates or other party candidates need 12,602 signatures to get on the ballot. Yet another federal election without a candidate who supports legalization because both the Illinois Democrats and Illinois Republicans are political bigots.

    There are a number of theories regarding the origins of 4/20, and it seems not one is truly definitive. So here’s one that is absolutely true: On 4.19.1943, at precisely 4:20 in the afternoon, Albert Hofmann dissolved 250ug of LSD in a solution and drank it. Thus taking the first intentional LSD trip in history and, of course, now known and celebrated as Bicycle Day.

    I spent this Bicycle Day with Leonard Pickard inside the US Penitentiary out in Tucson. He’s been there since 2003 and, all things considered, remains remarkably upbeat and positive. There is an outside chance, a very outside chance, his appeal will be granted and his freedom restored. Even then, it could take another 10-15 years, making Leonard 80-85 years old.

    Leonard sent his love and Bicycle Day best wishes to everyone. And as we celebrate 4/20 let’s not forget Leonard and all other drug war prisoners.

  • darkcycle

    RIGHT NOW: CNN is announcing that Leonhardt is resigning!
    Let the celebration …uh…continue?

    Just an FYI: After I had posted earlier about my sick can, Duncan suggested Arizona dispensaries for meds. Unfortunately, their reciprocity laws only apply to possession while in-state–you’re not allowed to buy any at dispensaries. Off to Colorado I go!
