    If only the cops were high. It should be mandatory that cops work stoned. Chill ’em out a bit.

      unfortunately most cops are high
      but not on herb
      it harshes their buzz

      Cops get high all the time. On all manner of stuff. Assuming they don’t use the supposed Holy Grail that is the ‘weed’ is naive at best. Participants in drive-bys use it as well. It really is not the miraculous panacea you think it is.

        Agreed. There are plenty of people that don’t get chilled out.

          I would have thought crack, meth or steroids would be a better chemical assistant for a drive-by. You smoke a bowl to celebrate afterwards. Everyone knows that.

            There are people who experience paradoxical effects to just about anything.

            Give me weed and I’ll turn into uber ninja, creeping around, making punji sticks, finding the best ambush spots…. i’ll stop there.

            That’s my comfort zone.

            I guess it depends on your background & the things that make you happy.

            Give me a strong stimulant though and it induces samadhi – totally internalizes me, total stillness.

      I’ll have to put a caveat on all future comments: DrDavidKelly (RIP) doesn’t post absolutes, rather statements are a revealing of tensions between clusters of differing ideas.

  2. It appears he is dead set on making himself a target. It didn’t work so well for Brian Warner.

    • Charlie Primero | May 20, 2013 at 12:21 am |

      Huh? Brian became an award-winning, multi-million dollar musician, actor, author and producer who even has his own brand of absinthe.

      You are correct that Adam would be much safer if he got a job at an AT&T store and settled down to strictly follow all rules, laws, and regulations set forth by his Federal, State, and Municipal authorities like you did. Different strokes I guess.

      • How old are you? I don’t mean this as an insult, it just seems to me that you do not have an accurate grasp of the real world.

        • Great comment, mostly because it highlights the older generation’s desire to hold onto the existing political paradigm and tell people rejecting it that they do not have an accurate grasp of the real world.

          • Yeah that’s it. You have no clue how old I am, nor my political views. Anymore assumptions?

          • I assume you think you can make a comment and no one should be allowed to have an opinion about it.

          • Another assumption. Good luck with the martyr/freedom fighter social script.

          • Thanks, good luck with holding on to the past.

          • Good luck with making assumptions.

            its called a police state. look it up
            they’ll take you to the gas chamber if you let them.
            its happening here.
            the government the founders warned us about.
            grow some balls.

          • Right, because Kokesh getting arrested at a pot rally achieved more than giving the authorities an opportunity to surveil everyone attending, and possibly place them on a domestic terrorist list. Lay down the bowl, pull your head out of your ass, and grow back some braincells. If you can.

          • Paulie Mad Barber | May 20, 2013 at 2:11 am |

            it really shows who is being controled by the gov’t,it seems older u are the more they got you.sure he is an old head but its not his fault he is brain washed..93/93

          • Are you saying I am brainwashed?

        • You’re not really helping yourself with this comment.

          • I express how I fail to see the benefit of Kokeshes approach, and I get cliche after cliche lobbed at me. None even ask what my views are on freedom or the legalizing marijuana.

            I was asking dude for clarity, because I was having trouble understanding. I try not to make the same mistake several have in this thread, of making assumptions.

          • Charlie was pretty clear about his opinion on your Brian Warner bit. You never bothered to defend it.

          • I didn’t because I realized it’s pointless with someone like that. Right after Columbine, Brian Warner got flayed in the media. He took it poorly and left public view. More happened behind the scenes. Also his career was deflated.

          • So you treat the people you’re talking to with contempt and then get butthurt about the results? Funny way of expressing your opinion.

          • Have yourself a beautiful day!

    No victim, no crime.
