What the hell is going on, on this site?

why is this thread back on the front page and near the top?

This has gotta be some kind of algorithm that has been installed. Nothing else makes sense!

I have asked more than once that this thread be taken OFF the front page.

In my opinion, DP needs some lightening up.

When I digest too much doom and gloom, it gets me down a little.

So, personally, I welcome some light hearted posts to add some levity and balance out the negative emotions one can get from all the disturbing politics.

Sometimes, people need a release.

Word up

why not have an open discussion on interesting stuff. Besides, our foundation and commitment to libertarianism at the DP is and always has been eternal.

While they are all laughing

While they are all laughing and giggling there are millions of people here and around the world who are facing unbelievable horrors locked in cages and prisons simply for enjoying a plant

Go, Colorado!

Can't believe this happened in my lifetime. Awesomeness, there is a God.

It's just a GD weed, furcrissakes.

So this is the "danger" of marijuana? Smiling and Laughing?

Look how joyful the reporter looks. So the worst thing that is going to happen is that you are going to laugh and smile?

How horrible.

Propagating Stereotypes: I agree with other posters that say this is "a hit piece" that is propagating the stoner stereotype; munchies, bursts of cackling, acting like a clown...

I noticed that too.

Sorry, this is nothing more than a "hit" piece...

reinforcing all the same old debunked myths and stereotypes about marijuana. All the cackling laughter, the talk of "munchies" and hunger, the attempt to portray these people as obsessed, somehow way out of the mainstream. How about that giddy reporter whose "brain was a little fuzzy", who "wasn't thinking right", who "couldn't remember even some of the questions I wanted to ask" (short-term memory loss) for the first time in her life. All from a little second-hand smoke? Yeah, right! And yes, I know Mr. Cooper is a deceitful Zionist propagandist, but does he really expect you to believe that people aren't even supposed to be "standing up" after smoking a joint or two? These people are really playing the American public for fools, which I guess you have to be if you watch this kind of nonsense in the first place.

On the positive side, it is a wonderful thing to see this kind of entrepreneurial spirit taking hold in Colorado, and hopefully it can serve as a role model for all the states to follow. It is absolutely necessary if the American economy is to have any chance to survive.

Thanks Michael for your thoughts...

And yeah the classic stoner effects were hit on and reinforced. It seemed very 60's in that respect. And so was it a hit piece? In retrospect, I suppose it was...Although the medicinal effects were mentioned a bit - bipolar and knee problems.

Contact high or not I dunno. Sativa or indica def's I dunno.

Of course the - "fetal position" on the couch is absurd. Sounds more like a bad acid trip.

And the lady with the limo. Yeah, it's "ganja"preneurial but $300 a pop? No thanks. It seems to me that this is catering to a target audience of yuppies.

Ron Paul is My President

This is surreal...

especially after hearing Anderson Cooper use the phrase, 'ganjapreneur'.

So now we all know what indica is

thanks to the exhaustive research and fact checkers at CNN as well as the CREDENTIALED JOURNALISTS who bring us this concise information.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

that was so awesome

Just people enjoying themselves. Kudos to CNN for not demonizing the issue.

Trade Shows and Tourism Will be HUGE in Colorado this year....

..............Wait and See.


I am looking into doing a convention in Denver and dropping one in Central Texas this year. I am doing it to experience the feeling of smoking openly. Its not even the "getting high" I'm after. I can smoke weed anytime I choose. It's the ACT of smoking weed freely/publicly that I want. I feel my home State of Texas will not follow quickly on legal weed...unfortunately. We certainly have plenty of land in this state to grow tons of it.
Anyway, you are absolutely right, business for everyone will be booming for Colorado until other states pile in and there becomes a balance of legal states across the country. Until then people will be flocking to Colorado.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

See that Schitt Eating Grin....................

...She was, Tore Up, From the Floor Up.

Surprised that she didn't call Cooper a Dic head and start laughing.

Tore Up, From the Floor Up.

no doubt

She had that first time girl buzz.

what's the gerbler so giddy

what's the gerbler so giddy about?

Be Your Own Media!!!

Anderson playing stoopid...

like he knows nothing about weed. Dude has probably smoked tons of the chronic. What a dope. lol.

There's no such thing as "contact high"

She definitely blazed up! She mixed up the differences between sativa and indica, though. So, that just tells me that she is a noob for sure. That, and the giggling. Good stuff from CNN (for once).

Contact high is real

She was inhaling their exhaled smoke. If you feel a bit high during that, you just received a contact high.

Love thy enemy.


A guy I know at NORML made a joke that you'd have to be in a car with 80 dead heads clam-baking for several hours to get a contact high.

Get real!

A contact high is a load of crap.

No, it's not

Never, ever, ever has anyone gotten high from exhaled smoke. NEVER.
