Now here is a job up my alley!  Rolling joints!  I use a bong to avoid my misbegotten talent of shoving a great deal of weed into an open tampon wrapper(that is if you use bio degradable tampons.)

But if they could pair this job…Cat Whispering with it!  I would consider it.  That is… only if training were involved.

The Hemp Earth Dispensary in Brighton is on the hunt for a professional spliff roller and will be holding “rolling tryouts” for the £10 per hour position.

Tales from the Bong

Mindfulness Begins at Home

One toke…and, another one set and ready to go.  Mid exhale!  A knock to the off the hinge trailer door.

“Who is it?”imageedit_3_7733415927

No answer arrived.  Just a chill reminding me of my father’s work-boots climbing cement steps.

In between a puff, a gag and all consuming red eyes…

Mindfulness ambled in wearing rainbow pride.

He asked if I had stopped by the free pile?  You know the one.  The one at the town dump.  He told me…a fortune of awareness sat there.  Sat there in a floral, funeral urn.  He seemed to think carrying the ‘awareness’ jug on this day, was my turn.

Confused and disoriented and slightly stoned…

I stuttered, “Leaving yesterday morning with icicles hanging from the short hairs…  I had been given the message from the Goddess…you must go.”

So, I went to the old beater, duct taped the hood, hopped in, stepped into a pile of snow.  Just a little hiccup with the broken windows and the direction of the wind that blows.

Mr. Mindfulness appeared quite bewildered.  Scratching his dread lock wig…I could see he saw me as, half baked.

“Look”, I said.imageedit__5544031091

“Its like this.  I got to Easy street and Pay It Forward square.  I don’t remember ever seeing a four way stop there.  ‘Truckin’ came on the FM.  You know the verse:”

Most of the cats that you meet on the streets speak of true love,
Most of the time they’re sittin’ and cryin’ at home.
One of these days they know they better get goin’
Out of the door and down on the streets all alone.

Enjoying the windchill of 30 below.  Admiring the workings of signs and what they mean to say.

I turned straight around.  Chanting ‘be thoughtful of others and try to always be kind.’  And, then I thought…just for today; I’m going back for another toke.  And, today I would be mindful of my mind.


A Monkey, A Lizard, A Crocodile

Richard Neville

A monkey is sitting in a tree, smoking a joint, when a lizard walks past.

The lizard looks up and says, “Hey!  What are you doing?’

The monkey says, “Smoking a joint, come and join me.”

So the lizard climbs up and sits next to the monkey and they smoke another joint.

After a while the lizard says his mouth is ‘dry’, and that he’s going to get a

drink from the river.

At the riverbank, the lizard is so stoned that he leans too far over and falls in.

A crocodile see this and swims over to the stoned lizard, helping him to the side.

Then he ask the lizard, “Whats up with you?”  The lizard explains to the crocodile

that he was sitting in a tree, smoking a joint with the monkey and his mouth

got dry, and that he was so wasted…that when he got a drink from the river…

he fell in.

The inquisitive crocodile says he has to check this out.  He walks into the jungle

and finds the tree where the monkey fell from.  The monkey is sitting there finishing

the joint.

He looks up and says, “Hey monkey!”

The monkey looks down and says,

“Dude, how much water did you drink?”



Buying Pizza High

When driving high the same things happen every time:

  • The little Genie on my shoulder tells me, every 10 seconds, ‘slow down you are going to fast!‘  Looking down to the speedometer, I typically am going ’bout 25 in a 40.
  • I feel like I have journey’d say, a hundred miles.  And, I have only gone to the stop sign at the end of the road.
  • On this long journey I believe I am in, hour upon long-hour goes by.  Slightly confused.  I give up on my road trip.  Turning around for home, stepping in the front door. my wife will ask, ‘where’s the pizza?
  • I am slow and methodical when high.  Precise seems to appease me.  I want to enjoy every single moment…as though it were never to come my way again.


It Turns Out That Smoking Marijuana May Actually Make You A Safer Driver

An amazing study authored by professors D. Mark Anderson (University of Montana) and Daniel Rees (University of Colorado) shows that traffic deaths have been reduced in states where medical marijuana is legalized.

According to their findings, the use of medical marijuana has caused traffic related fatalities to fall by nearly nine percent in states that have legalized medical marijuana (via The Truth About Cars).

The study notes that this is equal to the effect raising the drinking age to 21 had on reducing traffic fatalities.

One key factor is the reduction in alcohol consumption. The study finds that there is a direct correlation between the use of marijuana and a reduction in beer sales, especially in the younger folks aged 20-29.

A drop in beer sales supports the theory that marijuana can act as a substitute for liquor.

The study also finds that marijuana has the inverse effect that alcohol does on drivers. Drivers under the influence of alcohol tend to make rash decisions and risky moves, whereas those under the influence of marijuana tend to slow down, make safer choices, and increase following distances.

PSA…Medicinal Marijuana

…families in the PSA are representative of people around the world whose lives have been changed for the better by medical cannabis. By silencing the voices of medical cannabis advocacy, CBS does a disservice to the public who might benefit from this potential treatment option and to the athletes whose pain brings them profits. The NFL, however, goes a step further by prohibiting its moneymakers from treating pain with their preferred method. 

Watch the Medical Cannabis PSA that CBS Banned from the Super Bowl

I have just recently begun using my…medicinal marijuana ‘permit’.  After five years of Vicodin and many other, chemical treatments.  I am finally free from the remorse and second guessing of opioids…as well as, the physical restrictions they provide.

What makes no sense?

An organic substance that has been around since 2727 b.c., being given a bad rap.  While big Pharma holds the purse strings to our pain!
