Fuck a bunch of Wednesday

School is as school does. Man, I simply cannot wait for this semester to end. Bring on the summer. I man even, gasp, ride a bike. Little bit. Kinda.

Guess her muff

I might have already linked that last one. I can’t remember shit like that anymore. Whatever. My plate is full. And then some.

I am occasionally reminded that I am not like the others. Sorta like when you’re putting in that mileage and some dickhead swerves at ya and honks his horn and calls you a fag. Just to keep you in check. Just to remind you that he’s in a car and he could fuck up your Christmas with one flick of his wrist while he juggles a half gallon of moo juice and his two balls in his left hand. Yo son, my Dodge represents.

Following some class exercises and presentations and broken dreams and crushed spirits yesterday, me and the rest of my 1L brethren had a chance to vote all anonymous like by logging in to an online pole (yeah, p o l e). Half the class, my class, my classmates, my peers, my constituents, my colleagues, said that when they read the word “medical marijuana” they saw something “illegal”. Half of ‘em voted that a “minor” should not be allowed to wear a shirt that “promoted” or “advocated” medical marijuana, even if it was “legal in the state”. Half of ‘em voted that it didn’t matter if a cancer patient was legally prescribed medical marijuana by a doctor under state law, it is, and should be, a “crime”.

I am not of this world. It just sucks that I let myself forget.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. I don’t believe marijuana ought to be illegal, but I *think* federal law still makes it’s use/possession illegal even in states that have legalized it for medicinal purposes. Maybe some of your classmates thought of it in that context?

  2. Johnny,
    We need you to be part of that world so that you can speak and represent us and the real world.

  3. Just for laughs, you should repeat that survey with “Oxycodone”. It’s amazing what you can get legalized if you put enough money behind it.

  4. Pardon the rant, but here in California a lot of “Medical Marijuana” providers have become little more than head shops with a menu of selections that would turn an Amsterdam smoke house green with envy. I think that you should be able to get a legit prescription from a doctor for a genuine medical need, go to a pharmacy and get it in cigarette, pill or liquid form….period. I have no problem with trying to legalize weed, actually I’m for it, but doing it under the guise of a medical necessity just hurts both causes.

  5. Big J, you are in the wrong place……think Canada, you’d fit in nicely. Weed is damn near mandatory here in BC.

  6. Good luck finishing out your first year of law school. It’s been awhile since my law school 1L experience, but i was always out of place amongst my ‘classmate peers’ who, for the most part, couldn’t get their AmEx card upbringing head out of their arses.

  7. We all know that the Federal Government still thinks of the ‘devils weed’ as illegal. But when the reason for it’s illegality is not derived from the damage it does to the people who use it, but from the pharmaceutical companies who keep it down with their political power (i.e. money)…i tend to take that “law” with a grain of salt. Nothing in the government is done because of what’s “good” or “decent”. It’s done based on how much money it can possible make for that government.

    Just because the government says something is bad doesn’t mean it is. You gotta look past what their saying and find out WHY they’re saying it.

    If you’ve ever had experience with both alcohol and cannabis, you already know which is the worse of the two. And yet that one is legal…..
