    I’m 65 years old, spent 3 years in prison for 3/4 of an ounce of pot and the worst part of being 65 and single being greeted by the same old Wake Up Woody staring at me every morning like I was still 25. *that* is why my bong is within arm’s reach and the coffee maker is a hike. He’s a reminder I gotta commit.

    "See, I'm a stoner. That's why I went to jail." That pretty much sums up the last few years of my life. That was 2 years ago & now cannabis is going to be legal in Illinois. I need reimbursement for the crimes against ME!. A refund on my fines and $15 an hour for EVERY hour of time I served would be sufficient.

    The best thing to do with a DEA or ICE agent is to sterilize them. When they die off perhaps humanity will return to a semblance of decency.

    Tommy wants to play this down but in those days online sales were risky for buyers, we accept it as commonplace in 2019. You wouldnt be buying a bong through mail order back then unless they were illegal by local laws to purchase or if you were a minor. So basically this is revisionist history now that bongs are sold everywhere anf everyone buys things online.
    Parents often dont want their children getting high and if it wasny for minors his company wouldnt have existed.

    Harsh to get done for shipping bongs, specially when no ones smoking from them, and that it's not like they come with a bag of pot.. there is no starter kit.. it's not selling drugs.. it's like selling a fry pan that's never been cooked with.. because the reality of that as being the same as the companies that make syringes.. their not getting busted.
    No CEO of a pharmaceutical company is ending up in hand cuffs, and doing time for making his share holders rich off of sick people... one rule for them.. and that rule is.. they are not us... the reality is that everyone is striving to become them.. the people who only have that one rule... the types of people that have enough money where they don't have jobs.. they don't work for their money.. the money works for them.. the money that their own grand kids will be rich enough, well after their dead to still keep their grand kids rich enough to still be those people with the one rule.

    I seize and destroy my own weed,
    saving the government millions,
    And no one gets hurt.
    The government is as strong as it's nemesis, so giving cartels weed, they have a strong, well funded enemy to fight and the government will need more to fight them.
    Every judge in the country allows the lie that weed has no medical uses EVER, even poison ivy has medical uses. corruption from top down

    "When you're not doing anything wrong, you're honest" Then he talks about lying to a judge. lol
    I'm sure he's a nice guy but after I listened to him on Joe Rogan's podcast... Holy shit!
    I think he's been pretty much a daily user since around age 18 or something because he reminds me of one of the reasons I separated from potheads, not people who use weed, "potheads". Sorry to break it to all you potheads that will get defensive here but everyone one of them I've known, completely miss out on mental, emotional and spiritual development when they are stoned all the time. Watching a pothead trying to deal with an adult situation when the stress is on is like watching a 15-year-old.
    Chong reminds me of a kid. ...a 19 or 20 year old kid in an old man's body. That wouldn't be a problem if it meant that he has an innocent and carefree spirit but what is actually means is that he's not like other guys his age, there seems to be no wisdom or significant reasoning skills.

    If you're a pothead, do yourself a favor and cut back to 50%. That's 50% of your waking hours when you're not high. It's probably not enough to develop at the rate the rest of us do but it will make a noticeable difference after a while. See if you can challenge yourself and cut it down to 25 or 30%.
