    What are you smoking, DJ? It should be really good big_smile

    Oh, and happy 4/20 to you, too smile

      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....

      DRUNKY:
      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.
      Rasher rasher
      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

      STONEY:
      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.


      DRUNKY:
      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.

      STONEY:
      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.

      DRNKY:
      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.

      STONEY:
      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.

      DRUNKY:
      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.

      STONEY:
      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.

      DRUNKY:
      Why you cheeky little swine come here
      Im gonna batter you. Come here.

    LOL

    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.  big_smile

  5. Misha profile image74
    Mishaposted 10 years ago

    Actually it is illegal in Russia, too. And was illegal during communist times. I guess this is where US and UK picked the idea tongue

  6. Mark Knowles profile image61
    Mark Knowlesposted 10 years ago

    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. big_smile

    You can't just grow it for yourself, too, can you?

    1. Mark Knowles profile image61
      Mark Knowlesposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      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 wink 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...24/7cool

      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.

    Funny story-

    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!
