    Weekend Watching: Martial Arts Stoner Comedy


    Maybe it's the fact that the only thing I smoke is cigars, but I don't get stoner comedies for the most part. If I was forced at gunpoint to come up with a reason for their popularity, I'd probably attribute it to the fact that while clowns are no longer "cool", in a stoner film the drug turns otherwise normal losers into funny losers.

    I'm not judgmental on what people chose to put into their own bodies (except for baconators and ranch dressing); as long as you're not ruining my day I don't care what you do with yourself. Maybe drugs should be legal, but only if they're legalized everywhere on the planet at the same time. That way, those pesky Singaporians who practically shoot stoners on sight, won't leap ahead of the rest of the nations whose work forces show up at what-thirty in the afternoon and take 30 minute smoke breaks every hour.

    Who knows, maybe the planet would be a nicer place if everyone did drugs. We'd all sit around campfires and tell stories, material wealth would no longer matter, and we'd all forget about war and how to hurt each other.

    And then, shortly afterwards we'd all get our asses kicked by some alien race of industrious, straight-edge midgets.

    Oh, watch Brighton Wok - The Legend of Ganja Boxing.

    I'm going to take this opportunity to state that there are several substances that are no harsher than alcohol and commonly less habit forming (many safer and nearly all less habit forming than nicotine). These need to be legal in any country that intends to call itself free with a straight face (nobody has any gorramn right to come into my house and kidnap me for consuming THC, even if they have a badge and a bloated federal government behind them). Cannabis, cocaine, hallucinogens and assorted minor pharmecuticals (that includes MDMA, or Ecstasy) just aren't going to cripple civilization if they're as legal as other forms of recreation. I'm not going to carry any banners for harder stuff, but we all have our right to dictate what goes in our body, and that extends to fiddling with your noggin via chemical recreation.

    Sorry for the minor preach.

    Stoner comedies generally leave a bad taste in my mouth, they're rarely funny at all sober and I'd much rather watch something like Pan's Labyrinth or Reservoir Dogs or even Casablanca when I'm high.

    in all honesty, if the gov't bought up most the drugs, synth'd them and sold them, with tax, like they do cigs or alcohol, the American economy would be a hundred times better than it would ever hope to be.

    And i dont even do drugs....VOTE ME FOR PREZIDENT!

    I don't need the government selling me ****, that is not what they are for at all. Private enterprise for that ****, holmes, the government gets nothing more than my taxes and my vote.

    That being said, I would be okay with some solid taxation of cannabis (maaaybe not as much as tobacco nowadays) once it's no longer confined to the black market (quality will sky rocket and production/transportation overhead will plummet), just to have it be legal.

    I dont think you should put marijuana in the same category as other drugs. I blaze after workouts, and it helps me relax afterward. Also, just because you blaze, doesnt mean, you dont know how to fight or understand war.

    You're right, cannabinoids are more benign than aspirin, a fantastic sleep aid/pain reliever/anti-inflammatory, and just so happen to be psychoactive in a manner than many people enjoy.

    But as far as the category of "**** the gov't has no business slapping out of your hand", it and several other substances qualify.

    Not only would legalising and heavily taxing certain drugs make some serious money for the government, it'd also SAVE them serious amounts of money, because they wouldn't have to waste police resources hunting down those criminals anymore.
