They Aren't Joking About Toking

Today's Top News

I read today that New York is going to up the legal age to buy cigarettes to 21 and while they are at it they are raising the price of a pack of cigarettes to $10.50  They say this is an effort to pick more tax dollars out of the consumers pocket curtail teen smoking.

They didn't vote to up the age of when it is legal to buy bongs, pipes or other drug related paraphernalia though.  I guess they will get those tax dollars in one hit by hiking taxes on "junk food".  That way they get the stoners and the fatties all in one swift move.

Dude, I learned from this article, more teens currently smoke pot than cigarettes, according to the federal government’s National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Rarely do you see cigarettes in movies or on TV anymore I mean it's close to a criminal activity... but more and more, you do see people that are stoned or getting stoned.  Smoking marijuana is portrayed as both fun and cool.  How is it that we can have a "war on drugs" when Hollywood is promoting them?

Let me adjust my tinfoil hat and say that I think our government wants a dumbed down - drugged up population.  The less the public cares what goes on, the more they can get away with.

Don't forget, Hollywood pushed those cigarettes at one time!  So, don't fall for their "pot is cool" campaign, just say no kids years from now they will come out and say pot is bad for you and it will be just as much of a social stigma as smoking is.
