    this is an ad i never thought id see in my lifetime 

    apparently this weekend NASCAR is gonna have a a few big races and hundreds of thousands of the attendees may see this inexpensive but funny ad for weed.

    i question a few things in the claims it makes. specifically the fat dude’s belly and the skinny woman’s.

    from what i’ve read in the newspapers is weed gives you the munchies.

    in fact some people i’ve talked to here in LA were prescribed medical marijuana cards so the mysterious plant could help stimulate their appetite.

    cigarrettes are good for you says chesterfieldin fact some people i’ve talked to here in LA were prescribed medical marijuana cards so the mysterious plant could help stimulate their appetite.

    while its true that the herb doesnt have nearly as many calories, per se, as compared to booze, its effects have a, uh, high probability of inducing caloric intake.

    that is both a benefit and a feature for some. but something that should be warned about for others.

    if the people behind this advertisement want to be taken seriously, they should avoid the embarrassing path that Big Tobacco took when they said ridiculous things like cigarettes were good for you.

    mary jane will make you thin is just as insane.

    here’s another thing i would do if i was the weed lobby wanting to be taken seriously: i would make the next commercial in a serious manner. i would put the Church in it.

    flip open your bibles to page 2.

    Genesis:1 29-31 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

    It was so good he took the next day off. And he said that was good too.

    If I was the weed lobby I would ask the Catholic Church and all the other bible reading churches where does God say in the bible that he has an exception to the all the green plants are here for you goodness?

    I would ask them, where in the bible does God say that plant I made that makes you laugh and eat tacos was a mistake. Takebacks!

    if part of this relatively recent (historically) stigma onto cannabis is due to some moral mumbojumbo why not just talk to the moral majority itself?

    hard for me to believe that the branch of government so uniquely tied to wine would be so morally against weed when in page two of their most holy text their Creator gave it the seal of approval after He made it.

    in fact show me one story in that bible where the evil weed is evil. i can show you a few where wine was.

    what i would hope to hear from the Church is something along the lines of Ephesians 5:18 “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit”.

    which to me says, don’t go loco with what can block the spiritual high, which is attainable, you crazy kids…

    that is, if you’re ready for that trip.
