Will Wonders Never Cease?: The New York Times Calls for Marijuana Legalization

Reefer Relativity by Milt Priggee

In a portent of greater things to come, the famously conservatively liberal and most important newspaper in American journalism has made a move that would have been unexpected a year ago. But “There’s gold in them thar hills!” and legalizing marijuana and hemp will create a rush unseen in decades. No pun intended.

The New York Times Calls for Marijuana Legalization – NYTimes.com.

Here in Washington State the powers that be haven’t quite figured out what they are doing on both medical and recreational cannabis consumption. Plenty of law suits will be wending their way through the courts as the government fucks up mightily by confusing medical with recreational use. No other medicines have a tax attached and that statute won’t last long once ill and disabled users rise up to stop the penalties of paying the government extra for a natural and necessary substance. Singling out cannabis when taxes aren’t applied to other prescription medicines (read pharmaceuticals) is a heinous money grab by the state government. Then there is the issue of demanding people pay a yearly fee to secure a medicinal usage card. Something that empties the wallets of poor folks and makes those doctors willing to issue the cards much richer. On top of all this is the fact that insurance companies will cancel insurance policies outright if it is learned that customers use cannabis. Even when it is legal in their home state. Even with the much vaunted medical use card. And banks will not issue accounts to medical or recreational cannabis providers. And some towns choose to ban the substance and . . . and . . . and . . .

This is a mole hill being turned into a mountain range by bureaucrats and die-hard anti-drug dimwits who still believe cannabis is worse than cocaine while they sit in bars bitching about the collapse of the country and drinking a deadly poison known as alcohol, puffing on yet another cancer stick.

Our infamous Do-Nothing Congress might actually move on legalization if they realize that there is money to be made. Being that money is the one thing that consistently moves this herd. So, I suspect, in the next few years this ball of weed will build up enough momentum to crash through the existing obstacles and, just like Indian owned and operated gambling casinos, become ubiquitous and synonymous with rapid financial gain. It’s a pity people can’t come to terms with common sense realizations without needing dollars attached.

Awesome Male Art Dept.: Extravagant Masculinity

In service to manly objectification, Malaysian artist Silverjow creates monumentally muscular hyper-masculine figures that are beyond mere fantasy. The idea that these guys would actually walk around pretending normalcy in starched shirts and ties or tight jeans and tees is like believing angels walk among us. One fellow is so huge his shirt sleeve bursts open. While all of Silverjow’s men possess paws big enough to substitute as baseball mitts. As with the males artist Jacob Mott creates, large watches are present, too. I have yet to figure out the obsession with such a utilitarian device. We can only try to imagine what fills the undies of these perfected men. So far, Silverjow hasn’t ventured into the gayly pornographic. Yet his figures are as graphically male as such cartoon wonders come.
