Texas House Panel Approves Full Legalization Of Marijuana In ‘Unprecedented’ Move

Hey, Walt, I think I just may be moving in!

A man smokes a marijuana cigarrette in Montevideo on December 7, 2012. Lawmakers in Uruguay are studying a bill to legalize the cultivation of marijuana and allow limited personal consumption of it -- which if passed, will have authorities controlling its quality and the amount used. With the bill, which is supported by President Jose Mujica, the government wants to end drug-related violent crime which in recent years has emerged for the first time in this sleepy nation sandwiched between Argentina and Brazil.

Austin, Texas (CBS HOUSTON) — A proposal which would make Texas the fifth state in the U.S. to legalize recreational marijuana use was approved in a bipartisan House panel vote – with the bill’s author citing his Christian values as cause for his support.
Being hailed as a historic victory and a surprise to Lone Star state lawmakers, the Texas House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee approved a bill Wednesday that would make it legal to buy and sell marijuana in Texas, the Houston Chronicle reports. The panel’s three Democrats were joined by two Republicans to give House Bill 2165 a “decisive 5-2 victory.”

Weed Card – a song by Garfunkel and Oates

Yeah, not THAT Garfunkel and THAT Oates, but two singers who use that name as a band… or something.

Anyway, happy 4/20 day, whatever that means to you. I gave up celebrating 4/20 day back before music was put on compact discs…

Anyway, here’s what you have to do in California to get your “Weed Card”

See what Cheech and Chong hath wrought?

Does that mean I get to keep the watch?

cannabisPA_175x125There is an old joke that I love, it has a man, upon being exonerated for stealing, saying to the judge, “Does that mean I get to keep the watch?” Well, that is sort of what happened recently in Brant Township in Michigan, when a very distraught 54-year-old woman demonstrated that she wasn’t quite clear on the role of the police. According to reports, the woman called authorities after two men broke into her home, and demanded her crop of marijuana. She then called the cops to report the fact that her marijuana plants had been stolen.

Officers responding to her call promptly arrested her on charges of manufacturing and delivering marijuana. She claimed the crop was for personal use, but did not have a medical marijuana card required under Michigan’s recently-passed laws on personal use of the drug.

Pfau said that this is the first case he can remember where someone complained to police about their drugs being stolen. ‘They’re just not reporting this,’ he told the Saginaw News. ‘She was pretty upset.’

Oh yeah, and my kids snorted all of my cocaine before going off on a tailgate party bender with terrorists.

Only in America.
