    This story is actually being circulated as true in some circles...

    The Onion would be proud.

    Happens to them about once a week. The Sarah Palin Arrives in North Korea for Mandela Memorial was brilliant.

    Unless you're smoking like a thousand joints at once, its almost impossible to over dose on marijuana.

    btw you should read the other headlines on that website: http://dailycurrant.com/

    pretty funny stuff actually. Especially about the Vatican Drone Program.

    For me it was the mention of the Rocky Mountain News, a newspaper that went out of business a few years ago.

    Before I even entered this thread my thoughts were ....."Damn, capitalism is already poisoning weed with additives". Glad that's not the case, at least for now.

    Give it time. Same thing big tobacco did to cigarettes will happen to pot.

    I look forward to hearing the future story of the Jeffrey Wigand of the maurajuana industry.

    I have been avoiding the bulk of television lately, but some of you might pick up on this reference
    One of the those victims was 29-year-old Jesse Bruce Pinkman, a former methamphetamine dealer from Albuquerque who had recently moved to Boulder to establish a legal marijuana dispensary.

    What is it about news sites named for produce? And why do we not have a pool going on how long it is before NewsCorp starts regurgitating this as fact?

    Thank you for this. I've posted this to troll my friends and family on Facebook the instant after I finished reading it.

    "THIS IS TOTAL BS! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THIS STUFF! IT'S A PARODY SITE FOR ***** SAKE"!

    "No, man. It's the truth. More proof of your president Hussein Obama's socialist/mooslish agenda coming to pass. You left-wings *******s types can deny reality all you want, but it's real, and it's happening".

    edit: bonus points, cuz I've now got people throwing Snopes at me!

    We're both horrible people.

    The worst thing is, everyone I've got on Facebook should know better, but they just can't resist taking the bait. I mean it never fails...

    I see people post DailyCurrent articles all the time on my Facebook and then tell me I'm wrong when I tell them its a satire site.

    It's usually the same idiots that post the "Obama is giving free gas to poor neighborhoods" (from Daily Currant) article over and over.

    Hahahahaha this sounds just like my Facebook wall!
