Weed > booze!
Twas the night before 20, when all through society
Not a pothead was stirring, no reason for anxiety;
The kush was all ground, and rolled with such care,
For others may come, and I must be prepared;
The stoners asleep all comfy on the couch,
No cause for alarm, they probably passed out;
And Mary with her kief box, and I with some papers,
Giggling like school children, inhaling THC vapors.
When from not far away there arose sound of bubbles
I stumbled from bed to see what caused the trouble,
Away in the shed I glimpsed smoke-filled light,
As if Cheech and Chong had been toking all night
I put my bong down, as worry turned to dismay
And I wondered if my glazed eyes had led me astray,
When, what to my curious nose should arrive
But, a scent o’ so potent, which words can’t describe,
With a haze through the garden, so skunky and thick
That I heard my nose, pleading, “please, don’t be a trick!”
More fragrant than juicy fruit, its odor did proclaim,
I had to appeal for a hit of that strain;
“Hey toker! And, smoker! And Bill and Ted!
And bumout! And, hippie! And stoner and pothead!
To the beanbag in the den! To the hotbox down the hall!
Let’s toke up! Toke up! Toke up one and all!’
Its old news by now; but for those who aren’t as well informed, the newly elected Governor Dan Malloy from Stamford(CT), supports both decriminalization for minor possession and medical marijuana. According to newyork.cbslocal.com, if legislation passed it would make the “penalty of only a fine of up to $100” What does this mean? This means if one was to be caught by the police with a certain amount, they would only fine you (in this case) $100 and that would be that. Much like a parking ticket. There would be no permanent damage to your record. Massachussetts also has this plan
Medical Marijuana will just make it like Colorado, California, Rhode Island, Oregon and others. Making it only limited for medicinal and not recreational use.
