I don’t think this will work. . .

The cat doesn’t look very happy, but somehow I think the owner is elated.

    The cat better hope he doesn’t run into any police dogs for the next few days!

    Cats are already so mellow, they don’t need weed!

    I’m happy that I will be retiring in Washington State. I am pleased with my former (and future) fellow citizens.

      Yes, welcome to Washington State. I voted YES! 😉

    This would be a good poster for the Denver Cat Company.

    The etymology of the phrase “cool cat” has been breezily disambiguated.

    Or, the cat is already stoned.

    I remember an incident from many years ago at a friend’s house. We were getting baked real good, and after producing a ton of secondary smoke (exhaled or otherwise), my friend’s cat was — and I do not lie — running ALONG THE WALLS. Hilarious!

    The cat looks happy to me, real mellow like.

    It’s just chillin’….

    But seriously. Not all pets dig the second hand smoke…I’ve been told.

    I guess I’m unhip. To me it looks like broccoli, or maybe brussels sprouts.

      Me too. Suggest the title should be “When you run out of bandaids,” as cat did not look amused.

    I had recently learned that the cat reaction to catnip is caused by a dominant allele for a gene. This would be why most cats react to catnip, and why some cats do not. The latter cats would be homozygous recessive.

    That reminds me of the uncle’s theory that Jesus (as well as the other “prophets”) was a purveyor of opium, his apostles dealers. This explains the miracles, all the “prayer” in the garden, and the hyperbolic fear of demons.

    Somehow that theory doesn’t get the same respect as Ground of Being, etc…

      Actually, in an earlier edition of my book, “Letter to a Prohibitionist,” I had a passage about Jesus and cannabis. Some scholars think there’s a reference to weed in the Bible, but I later decided that I wasn’t convinced by the scholarship and so I deleted the passage from the revised edition. In case you’re curious, here’s the deleted passage:

      But dude, I have shocking news for you: the Bible was written by stoners. “Kaneh bosm” and “kannabus,” obvious derivatives of the word “cannabis,” appear several times throughout the (Hebrew) text. Revelation 22:1–2 ends with “…and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” Yeah? I’ll bet you they weren’t talking about jojoba (and it seems your buddy Jesus in the NT probably used cannabis oil to help the near-blind see. Good thinking, J-man). But of all the passages that can be construed as references to cannabis — “calamus” in the Song of Solomon is another — my favorite remains this alluring little passage, from Ezekiel I: “Spread out above the heads of the living creatures was what looked like an expanse, sparkling like ice, and awesome.” I’ll have a hit of that.

        Don’t forget the burning bush…

          Damn! That’s great. How did I miss that? Oh well.

    That’s the “if I were a lion I would so eat your annoying ass” face I think.
