My Grandmother used to use the above phrase all the time about everything.
"The World has gone to Pot"
I remember a time when I was quite young and my sister Pam and I were at her home.
(she was a single woman and we assumed grandpa died just to get away from her)
We were all in the living room watching television and there were protests on the television news. Probably the Vietnam war protests at that time.
She said that phrase yet again and asked us to change the channel.
We didn't have remotes back then and this grandmother wouldn't get up if my sister or I could do something for her.
My sister and I would just laugh every time she said it because she said it all the time, about everything. There was a man at the store and he had long hair to his shoulders, that always made her say her favorite phrase. It never ceased to make my sister and I laugh. We were not that fond of this grandmother. She was as mean as a snake so laughing at her was fun for the two of us.
This morning while the news was playing in the background of my morning routine I thought of my Grandmother. They are having a Hemp Festival in Seattle where pot is legal.
Her phrase would certainly be appropriate now wouldn't it? Seattle's gone to Pot Grandma. The whole thing I heard this morning made me laugh. The police will be handing out mini bags of Doritos for all those who have the munchies. Who won't have the munchies if they are at this festival? Contact high could be possible I suppose if there is that large of a crowd with open air smoking. Makes me laugh and I had to text my sister that phrase. I knew she'd have a smile thinking about our grandmother, the mean old woman.
Then I read in the paper where this dumb ass man tweeted that he needed "spliff" and was looking for a marijuana dealer to deliver a "20 sac chop" (2 grams) to his place of employment, a Mr. Lube automotive center in a Toronto suburb.
Now when I read this I was happy they explained in the article what the hell that meant because I am not up on pot jargon.
Now what is really funny to me is what happened next.
He received the following tweet back from his local police, ""Awesome! Can we come too?"
Shortly there after he was unemployed and arrested.
The dumb ass continued to tweet telling all who follow him that "Just got the call of termination."
In one of his tweets following his unemployment and arrest he tweeted, "I've lost complete hope in society man. There's
killers/rapists/people missing and all they care about is a dude asking
While I agree that it's not as big a deal as killers, rapists etc., however it is illegal dumb ass so publicly asking for it is pretty stupid. How can you be surprised that any of this happened?
File this man under the Dumb Criminal file don't you think?
