Open Thread

Busy time here with the last week of school and finals.

Had an interesting and somewhat frustrating set of discussions dealing with people who seemed to think that attempting to prohibit substance use for college students during their final weekend of school was a practical (or even possible) idea. Clearly, however, harm reduction, reducing...

Police State

It’s not only a police state, it’s an incompetent police state.

OMG – Pothead Terrorists!

Poor Cliff Kinkaid. He’s such an incredible tool. Check out his latest: How Pothead Terrorists Almost Outsmarted the Police
