What are you smoking, DJ? It should be really good
Oh, and happy 4/20 to you, too
The 4/20 celebration is the day get high and reflect on how rediculous it is that we can't smoke without fear of imprisonment! So we all close our eyes and pretend we moved to Amsterdam OR sign petitions about just how rediculous it is.
THE WAR ON DRUGS IS A FARCE!
There is a funny song about this...check out 'The Irony of it All' by THE STREETS.
In the song, the British Rapper rhymes in two different voices over two different beats...one is a drunk and one is a stoner. Listening to him argue with himself about which is better is funnier than anything EMINEM ever did.
Here are the lyrics....
Hello, hello. my names Terry and Im a law abider
Theres nothing I like more than getting fired up on beer
And when the weekends here
I to exercise my right
to get paralytic and fight
Good bloke fairly
But I get well leery when geezers look at me funny
Bounce em round like bunnies
I'm likely to cause mischief
Good clean grief you must believe and I aint no thief.
Law abiding and all, all legal.
And who cares about my liver when it feels good
What you need is some real manhood.
barney and kasha
putting people's backs up.
Public disorder, I'll give you public disorder.
I down eight pints and run all over the place
Spit in the face of an officer
See if that bothers you
'cause I never broke a law in my life
Someday Im gonna settle down with a wife
Come on lads lets have another fight
Eh hello. my names tim and Im a criminal,
In the eyes of society I need to be in jail
For the choice of herbs I inhale.
This ain't no wholesale operation
Just a few eighths and some playstation: my vocation
and yet I pose a threat to the nation
And down the station the police hold no patience
Lets talk space and time
I like to get deep sometimes and think about Einstein
And Karl Jung and old Kung Fu movies I like to see
Pass the hydrator please
Yeah Im floating on thin air.
Going to amsterdam in the new year - top gear there
Cause I take pride in my hobby
Home made bongs using my engineering degree
Dear leaders, please legalize weed for these reasons.
Like I was saying to him.
I told him: top with me and you wont leave.
So I smacked him in the head and downed another carling
Bada bada bing for the lads night.
Mad fight, his faces a sad sight.
Vodka and snake bite.
Going on like a right geez, he's a twat,
Shouldnt have looked at me like that.
Anyway Im an upstanding citizen
If a war came along I'd be on the front line with 'em.
Cant stand crime either them hooligans on heroin.
Drugs and criminals those thugs on the penny coloured will be the downfall of society
I've got all this anger pent up inside of me.
You know I dont see why I should be the criminal
How can something with no recorded fatalities be illegal?
And how many deaths are there per year from alcohol
I just completed Grand Tourismo on the hardest setting
We pose no threat on my city
Ooh the pizzas here will someone let him in please let him in?
We didnt order chicken, not a problem, we'll pick it out
I doubt they meant to mess us about
After all were all adults not louts.
As I was saying, were friendly peaceful people
Were not the ones out there causing trouble.
We just sit in this hazy bubble with our quarters
Discussing how beautiful Gail Porter is.
MTV, BBC 2, channel 4 is on until six in the morning.
Then at six in the morning the sun dawns and its my bedtime.
Causing trouble, your stinking rabble
Boys saying I'm the lad whos spoiling it
Youre on drugs
it really bugs me when people try and tell me Im a thug
Just for getting drunk
I like getting drunk
Cause Im an upstanding citizen
If a war came along Id be on the front line with em.
Now terry youre repeating yourself
But thats okay drunk people can't help that.
A chemical reaction inside your brain
causes you to forget what youre saying.
What. I know exactly what Im saying
I'm perfectly sane
You stinking student lame-o
Go get a job and stop robbing us of our taxes.
Err, well actually according to research
Government funding for further education pales in insignificance
When compared to how much they spend on repairing
Leery drunk people at the weekend
In casualty wards all over the land.
Why you cheeky little swine come here
Im gonna batter you. Come here.
I never heard of this. I meant to ask you what the 4/20 thing was, but now I know.
As far as I can tell, marijuana is only really illegal in the US and the UK because you can grow it almost anywhere. Therefore it is un-taxable.
Try that with tobacco and see how easy it is to make your own cigarettes. Or drinkable whisky.
So if it is made legal, you know you are going to have to pay a $10,000 license fee to be allowed to grow it.
Actually it is illegal in Russia, too. And was illegal during communist times. I guess this is where US and UK picked the idea
Well, we seem to be adhering to the maxim, "If we can't tax it, you can't sell it." In the UK.
I don't see any evidence that marijuana is any worse for you than alcohol, prozac, tobacco, or car fumes, so that's the only logical reason I could come up with.
I am sure the alcohol manufacturers will have had an opinion on it too. Or rather, paid for an opinion.
No you can't. At least not in the UK. I understand there are some states that will allow you to use "medical marijuana."
But I live in France, and they are extremely lax. And the cops are scared of the drug dealers LOL
Hey DJ Funktual let me first say a Big Happy 4/20 ! It is news to me!
Cannabis is illegal in the uk the goverment make their "tax" by fines, and confiscation orders, which would cost more or less than keeping prisoners in prison i dont know!
I have a few more cents to offer.tottaly changing subject:/
They say that you get paranoid smoking cannabis right!?
My belief is the reason why this could be a factor is because
Firstly, the goverment says it is illegal, so fines and imprisonments are imposed if you get caught!. Jobs can be lost. Friends and family feel that you have let them down, you could get a criminal record etc etc and because, It stinks to high heaven!! even if your smoking or not! and the red eyes!! and very laid back approach are all enough to make you paranoid knowing the consiquences!!
If Alcohol was made illegal over night, people would still find ways of drinking, and i bet those people would start getting paranoid finding safe places to have their sneaky swigs, worrying about all the above!!
Im not knocking Alcohol at all and would not like to see this banned but drinking in moderation helps because i know and have known soo many people who have either died from falling or alcohol related diseases, been to prison for violence that they cannot remember and other violence they can remember etc etc because of the affects of drinking eccessively etc etc...The only cannabis tales are not as gloomy at all in any respects other than forgetting what they are about to Umm err:P
Legalising it would be impossible and un-viable especially here in the UK and i dont know of any answer other than more leniency when getting caught with a small amount of stash!
I could go on and on about this but hubwork calls!
Happy 4-20 day...24/7
Oh that's right - 420 day. Forgot about that!
(not that I will be participating but have fun to those that do and stay safe!)
Only 10 hours to go.. then I won't have to read about 4/20 anywhere for another year.
*goes off to do stuff while waiting it out*
Way to harsh the buzz Charlotte! There's always someone who 'hates on' the good-time people but I never would have have thought it'd be you.
Do you honk at peace rallies too?

Do what you want to/with yourself.
I say, legalize marijuana. At least then it wouldn't be so freakin' cool to be stoned (to some people.)
NOT COOL, fun. I made this today just for this thread...enjoy!
No sweat gamegirl you're still my vote 4 'HOM'!
DID ANYONE ELSE NOTICE THE HISTORY CHANNEL IS DOING A MARATHON ON DRUGS TODAY. marijuana, then lsd & shrooms, then i saw cocaine was on. All they do is talk about how the politicians had all these side deals cut with big businesses to keep things down that the public actually liked.
PEACE LOVE & HAPPY HERBS!

###Excuse me while i light my spiliff...Ohh lord i got to take a lift, ,,from reality i just can't drift, that's why im staying with this spliff.....Take it easyyyyy###
Lyrics by the late legend Bob Marley;)
Cops down in Richmond, Virginia, U.S. found a large field of marijuana. Apparently it was one of the largest fields of marijuana ever found in that area. The cops, not knowing what to do to prevent people from picking from the field, decided the best thing to do would be to burn the field, so they did it...
Not 100% sure it's true, as I heard it from a friend years ago...Funny, none the less!

I like to check Hubpages on breaks at work. Now, I can't access my Hub feed because a Hubber chose to write a Hub about drugs, and Hubpages hasn't caught onto it yet. My organization is pretty fair on what it blocks/allows. Usually blocks things about gun violence, cults, and drugs. They also only...

I would just like to read different opinions on why marijuana is illegal. I don't personally see anyting wrong with smoking marijuana even though i've never actually tried it. I don't know why alcohol is acceptable when it causes more harm than good to an individual. From my observations, when a...

I believe the effects of marijuana is not what the government is afriaid of. A study shows that by removing the crop from consumption, a considerable amount of GDP would be affected in the country creating an inbalance with no way to satify filling the gap. European countries have...

I personally think it is ridiculous that it's not allowed. But according to polls the majority disagree with me! Surely there must be somebody on here that favors the outlawing of marijuana. Tell me why!
