LAW: Alaska legalizes marijuana!

I visited Colorado in January and ate legal pot.  It was pretty awesome.  I can honestly think of no reason this drug should remain illegal and plenty of reasons why indulging in pot should be allowed.  One of those reasons is that Colorado is literally making so much money they have to give some back [Read More…]

It’s an extremely caustic video, probably NSFW, yet, strangely satisfying.
