That child should be staring longingly through a storefront window at a wide selection of guns.
What has this world come to?

judging by the the size of kevin's bag, he is a highly successful young man, and maybe should be left alone, lady.
I know a number of losers that use pot.
I know a number of pretty regular folks that use pot.
I know a number of wildly successful people that use pot. Like, penthouse in a Miami highrise successful.
Get the picture, mom?
I used to know a guy who went to work stoned every day, never took baths even when his coworkers started complaining that they could smell him, and believed in aliens and 9/11 truther conspiracies.
He was promoted so fast he was in charge of his own division in the company in 3 years.

Just acknowledging that the please donate area on the home page was green for St. Patrick's day.
Here are five stars for poo.

How I know this is a dupe, is that big jar of seaweed and gelatin at 0:11. Seeing that scarred me for life. Is Kevin smoking that shit? My god, how can Massachusetts fuck up something as bog simple as marijuana?

One conservative area of Massachusetts ran a front page health article marijuana scare story right after it was legalized.
The best scare story they could come up with? "Legal marijuana leads to increase in pets getting high!" Horror stories of animals being abused by breathing in their owners' pot fumes or getting into and eating their stash!

These ads were(are) so pathetic and didn't work at all. The voters legalized weed decisively. Unfortunately not one public official supported legalization and now they are trying to suffocate the new law by putting off stores for more than a year and using surprise fly-by-night sessions to modify it.
Actually I guess it's the job of any self-important jagoff to stop other people from doing things that self-important jagoffs don't understand.
If only they had some way of winding down so they wouldn't be so up tight.

This is a dupe.
No, I think the commercial has been recycled for a different referendum. Same footage, different script.

So I guess Massachusetts is just a bit weed theme park now. And thanks to pot, healthy alternatives like McDonald's are unable to provide the essential cow lard your child needs to build up big, beefy heart-bones. NICE GOING, KEVIN.
Come to think of it, why is that lady so confused by the world around her? Those pot stores can't have all sprung up overnight, how is she only encountering them now? What this commercial needs is a prequel where mom wakes up from a five year coma. The daughter is confused because she has spent her entire life in sensory deprivation tank for unrelated reasons.
Nonsense. Extended blackouts, confusion, erratic emotionally driven behavior. All symptoms of serious alcohol abuse.
She's a suburban house wife, likely a Tump voter.
Actually, I haven't checked in a while sinc eI don't live there anymore, but when they first legalized medical marijuana in MA they weren't allowed to put any dispensaries in Boston itself because it was "dangerous to the community" or something, so they actually DID put them up in the surrounding suburbs.

Oh man, weed meringues are such a good idea. Is there such a thing?
Also, there are usually not windows in pot shops, at least in Washington.

The driving statistics are complete bullshit. You could toke up and then die in an auto accident two weeks later and your death would be counted as being marijuana related. The stats don't mean weed caused the accidents just that THC was found in the blood.
Actually, there is a substantial decrease in traffic fatality rates when a state legalizes.
Objectives. To determine the association of medical marijuana laws (MMLs) with traffic fatality rates.
Methods. Using data from the 1985–2014 Fatality Analysis Reporting System, we examined the association between MMLs and traffic fatalities in multilevel regression models while controlling for contemporaneous secular trends. We examined this association separately for each state enacting MMLs. We also evaluated the association between marijuana dispensaries and traffic fatalities.
Results. On average, MML states had lower traffic fatality rates than non-MML states. Medical marijuana laws were associated with immediate reductions in traffic fatalities in those aged 15 to 24 and 25 to 44 years, and with additional yearly gradual reductions in those aged 25 to 44 years. However, state-specific results showed that only 7 states experienced post-MML reductions. Dispensaries were also associated with traffic fatality reductions in those aged 25 to 44 years.
Conclusions. Both MMLs and dispensaries were associated with reductions in traffic fatalities, especially among those aged 25 to 44 years. State-specific analysis showed heterogeneity of the MML–traffic fatalities association, suggesting moderation by other local factors. These findings could influence policy decisions on the enactment or repealing of MMLs and how they are implemented.
Also: opioid overdose in states with legal marijuana drop 25%.
That's important inasmuch as the current attorney general has stated that, due to the incredible opioid addiction problem in the united states, marijuana must remain strictly illegal.
Because the last thing we want is a safe, beneficial subsitute for a dangerous and incredibly addictive drug.
Marijuana can be a fucking god send for hard drug addicts. Iffin they can get over the whole 'weed is for hippies, and losers who can't handle "real" drugs' snobbish mentality.
The "it's so much more potent today" statistics are the same kind of thing. It's because in the 60s the DEA was mainly busting hippies running garbage up from Mexico but today it's mostly good quality and often locally grown, so the average potency of what the DEA gets has gone up (and the average potency of what's available generally) but it's not because breeding has made it that much stronger (a little maybe but nothing like the increase the DEA numbers that are commonly used suggest), it's just that more is available.
Oh, and all of those "new" strong extracts have been around for decades, too. I've read period nonfiction from the 60s and 70s that talks about hash oil so strong they would just dip a needle in it, wipe the needle across a rolling paper, and smoke that with nothing in it (or more often with tobacco to make it burn slower), and it would be enough for 2-3 people. It's very, very basic chemistry to make that stuff.
It's like tracking the increase in high ABV microbrews and Belgian ales at your local townie liquor store and concluding that all beer everywhere is stronger now than it has ever been in human history.
Incidentally, this book is just as good now as it was in 1954:
I did not know about high potency and extracts having been around that long. sweet. my favorite thing about the argument against pot because of the high potency is just how much of a non argument it is, and it shows just how much prohibitinist havnt a leg to stand on, They might as well be saying pot is bad because it's green.
Incidentally here's a fun little article I read a few days ago about how government grown pot that researchers get for testing is the shwaggiest weed you've ever fucking seen.

I'm so high that I forgot this was a dupe and rated it 5 stars.

I don't know how it works in other states, but the shops we have where I live have small, tasteful signs that don't mention cannabis, and covered windows.
They recently opened one across the street from the theater downtown so I guess it will finally be possible for adults to enjoy Lion King The Musical.
