Save Some Food For Me!

Well, the DEA has given notice that you have one month to buy "fake weed" and horde it in your basement before it becomes illegal to buy "fake weed." (The kids used to call fake weed "homegrown" back in the day.)

The DEA announced plans Wednesday for a nationwide emergency ban of five chemicals found in the so-called "fake pot," which is sold as incense at convenience stores and specialty shops across the country. (Where exactly are these "convenience stores" located? And when did folks stop calling them "head shops?")

"This is good news," said Jim Hall, director of Nova Southeastern University's Center for the Study and Prevention of Substance Abuse. "It's the fastest way to deal with the problem nationwide."

Actually Jim, the fastest way would be to impose an IMMEDIATE ban or suspend sales.


Anyhoo, the five chemicals banned are JWH-018, JWH-073, JWH-200, CP-47,497 and cannabicyclohexanol. They will be labeled Schedule 1 drugs, the most restrictive category reserved for drugs deemed unsafe, highly abused and considered to have no medical value. (Unless applied to the wax on green apples, Chocolate Crunch cereal, or your favorite BBQ chippies.)

N.B. The views expressed in the youtube video, which have absolutely no affiliation with this blog, and the proliferation of "fake" marijuana, do not represent the views of this blog or its authors. This includes the actor's tacit admission that coughing after a bong hit is totally weak and undermines the prior 3 minutes of her video wherein she purports to be the world's authority on bong hits. Nor do we condone drinking the bong water. Ever.

The Big House

The Man already covered Judge Shenberg's new gig here.

Kudos to Harvey for his entrepreneurial spirit and never say die attitude and all, but really: didn't Gene Wilder teach us everything we need to know about survival in The Big House?

N.B.: Timing is everything and from the look of things, Allen Stanford needed Harv to open his jail survival school a year earlier. Ouchy.

New Music Saturday

NB This is the second Bluegrass song I post. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Texas Flood

Being a drunk can lead to the White House.

And being President entails having dog crap thrown at you.

That's W.'s statements to a hostile crowd at an Energy Conference in Dallas, the risky venue chosen for his first public remarks about his graphic novel.

According to the Huffington Post, W. was candid in his remarks and talked a lot about his family and his wife Laura: "I never would be sitting here without the unconditional love of an awesome man," he said.

NB: Water boarding? Damn right!

Congratulations to Marco Rubio, Son of Exiles!

I don't like cheap shots, so the Herald's election night description of Mauricio's "toothy grin" at his victory party at the "swanky" Biltmore was not necessary.

NB - Hey - did anyone see this play ?
