Happy 4/20


Hopefully you aren’t so high you’re seeing giant colored animals everywhere, that is, unless you’re in certain parts of Europe, where they are a real and legitamate art project.


Oh, and since tomorrow’s Earth Day, you may as well check out these awesomely strange eco-friendly products like the wood-powered hot tub. So relaxing.

Wasps can sniff out food toxins, crop fungus, bodies, drugs, and even 2,4-DNT, a volatile component in dynamite that dogs struggle to smell, so they may be the drug and bomb sniffing dogs of the future. –Source

National Dog Day and Women’s Equality Day –is it a coincidence they’re on the same date? I don’t think so.

Magic Mushrooms: The Next Medicinal Marijuana?

Researchers have discovered that people who “shroom” can have an increased level of happiness as much as 14 months later, more on the study. For chronically depressed people (read:me), this could be a life saver…literally. I have in fact taken them when they were legal in Amsterdam and I have to say, I do think it really helped my mood for a long while afterwards.

Pot and prozac do not do this. Nothing legal in the US does this.

Personally, I think more “drugs” should be legal, as a person should be able to do whatever they want to their body. But when it comes to something like this, where it can have major benefits for the person taking it and they don’t hurt anyone by taking it, why the hell isn’t it legal?


Paraguay’s Black Market, Drugs, Guns, DVDs

Thanks yet again Boing Boing, they have another great post today (as if it ever stops with them). This time, it’s a fantastic article in Good Magazine chronicling the black market of Paraguay, which is rampant and out of control, even by my standards. Read it.

Wanna Get High Legally?

If watching people snowboard, sky dive and club it up all night long just annoys you, Drank just might be the right drink for you. The new drink tries to replicate the downers of codeine and cough syrup, but legally.
Is it really any fun when it’s legal?
