POLL: Canada’s Weed Vending Machine Vs. America’s

Weed vending machines

With North America’s governments finally beginning to capitalize on the millions and millions of dollars generated by the distribution of marijuana, we’re hearing about the very first vending machines designed to dispense sweet sticky herbs.

While there are reportedly others in Arizona and California, the most publicized machines reside in Avon, Colorado and Vancouver, B.C.

So who has the better machine? ‘Merica, or those maple-syrup guzzling ladies and gents to the North? It’s a matter of taste (literally).

Colorado’s machine specializes in pot-infused baked goods, and doesn’t require identification until approached, whereas the one in Canada is in a “fenced-off zone” that requires customers to “flash a card confirming that they have received a doctor’s prescription for the drug.”  Continue reading “POLL: Canada’s Weed Vending Machine Vs.

Marijuana Legalized In Colorado and Washington, Marriage Equality For Maine and Maryland!

Today was a good day for Democrats. Colorado, Washington, Maine and Maryland made history for their yes votes on marriage equality measures and marijuana legalization, oh, and that Obama guy won.

In spite of Colorado and Washington’s recreational marijuana use laws (Initiative 502 and Amendment 64) passing, the states still have a way to go in terms of actual results, so don’t take your pipe on a walk just yet.

Huffington Post and other websites report that it could take months, possibly even a year, for 21-and-overs to legally buy pot.

Here’s a statement from CO governor John Hickenlooper:  Continue reading “Marijuana Legalized In Colorado and Washington, Marriage Equality For Maine and Maryland!”

I Don’t Want To Live In A World Where It’s Legal For Ted Nugent To Own A Gun

Those who are confused by anyone in support of proposing stricter gun control laws have one memorably nonsensical thing to say: “give everyone a gun and we’ll be safe, dagnabbit!”

Like Ted Nugent, singer of “Funk U,” and notorious collector of animal skins and camouflage cowboy hats. On Twitter, he writes:

“We pray for all victims&loved ones of demonshooter in CO& we SALUTE the brave warriors who saved lives IF only they would hav had a good gun.”

He also defends James Holmes’ right to have an assault rifle by denying its existence. “There were no assault weapons used in the CO shooting only universally proven sporting & self defense firearms & 6k rounds aint squat. lies.”  Continue reading “I Don’t Want To Live In A World Where It’s Legal For Ted Nugent To Own A Gun”

Dane Cook Makes Joke At Expense Of Colorado Shooting Victims And ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Dane Cook made me laugh in his Comedy Central Presents special from 2000. Since then, I chuckled at the movie Waiting… which he is in, though it was mostly at Anna Faris. He was also surprisingly okay alongside Kevin Costner in Mr. Brooks.

I haven’t thought much about Dane Cook since Mr. Brooks except that when Daniel Tosh made that crappy rape joke at the Laugh Factory I heard he was lurking in a shadow somewhere nearby.

Now that Cook is making untimely jokes about the Aurora theater shooting I can no longer ignore his existence as a formerly overrated comedian who was finally getting the amount of attention he deserved (barely any).  Continue reading “Dane Cook Makes Joke At Expense Of Colorado Shooting Victims And ‘The Dark Knight Rises’”

Neuroscience Student Kills 12 ‘Dark Knight’ Audience Members, Has Millions Talking Gun Control

Almost everyone who considered going, or did go to a midnight showing of Batman this morning just experienced a spine-tingling moment of silence and selfish relief.

At around 12:30 a.m., a 24-year-old UC Denver student wearing ballistic armor and a gas mask named James Eagan Holmes brought a machine gun to a Century theater in Colorado and killed 12.

Over fifty of the people in the Denver suburb of Aurora were injured, mostly from gunshot wounds, though some suffered chemical burns from what the police called a “smoke device.”  Continue reading “Neuroscience Student Kills 12 ‘Dark Knight’ Audience Members, Has Millions Talking Gun Control”

Is Meeting The President Really THIS Scary?

The answer is yes, meeting the president is overwhelming whether it’s George Bush or Obama or Ulysses S. Grant. Especially if it’s Ulysses S. Grant because nobody but the Biography channel likes ghosts.

Now, this picture went viral for the obvious reasons. I hate the word “viral” because anything on the internet is technically viral but this is just one of those times where I’m lazy and can’t think of anything else.

The woman you see is University Of Colorado student Madalyn “dive bar girl” Starkey who ran into the prez at, you guessed it, a local pub.

Her Twitter caption (“Just met Obama at the Sink”) was much more relaxed than her facial expression. Good thing she has proof, cause who would believe her without it?

‘Maggot Burger’ Served At Colorado State Fair

Jungle George‘s food stand at the Colorado State Fair includes some very interesting menu options. One is a “Maggot Melt Sandwich,” which is melted cheese and maggots between bread.

Founder/owner George Sandefur’s official “Jungle George’s Exotic Meats and Bugs” menu also includes crickets, scorpions, alligator, buffalo and ostrich.

At various fairs in the past George has made glazed donut hotdogs and fried jellybeans famous.
