This is a love story about a man and his munchies.
A 22-year-old in Austintown, Ohio, dialed police Friday afternoon, telling the local dispatcher that he was simply “too high.” When police arrived at his house around 5:20 pm, they found the man lying on the floor in the fetal position, groaning, “surrounded by a plethora of Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, and Chips Ahoy cookies.”
Personally, I am yet to have a high gone so wrong that I thought I was dying — but if I did, I can think of worse ways to go than surrounded by what I love.
The controversial marijuana legalization measure that will be on the Ohio statewide ballot next month (Issue 3) continues to generate news stories and opinions on both sides.
We all know the positive things that cannabis legalization brings: retail sales, home growing, legal possession; all these things that are encompassed within Issue 3, along with the legalization of medical marijuana. Tax revenue, thousands of jobs, less police resources wasted. Check, check, and check.
Weed makes you lazy and unmotivated. It kills your brain cells and lowers your IQ. It’s what we have been told all of our lives by those who supposedly know better than we do.
There is no doubt that many lazy people smoke marijuana. But if marijuana made you lazy then everyone who uses it would be lazy, and that’s just not the case. We all know several presidents of the United States have admitted to smoking weed. What you may not know is that several very successful CEOs have admitted to using cannabis as well.
