Hempfest 2013

Seattle Police were armed heavily with bags of Doritos bearing a warning sticker in lieu of I-502, the Referendum on Marijuana.

Don’t: drive high, shotgun weed or smoke in public.

Do: listen to Dark Side of the Moon at reasonable volume.

Not sure how I feel about “reasonable volume,” but otherwise, for the first time in my adult life, I actually feel as though Serve & Protect are on display in Seattle for the entire world to witness.

Forget the police in Beijing who bashed protesters in Tianamen Square. Forget the police in New York City who bashed protesters in Zuccotti Park. Forget the police in Syria, Moscow and Cairo who are currently bashing protesters in Parks Unknown.

We don’t know the names of the parks. But we know the names of the players: Assad, Putin, Morsi.

We elevate cruelty. We incarcerate curiosity.

There’s a reason it’s called Kindbud. Maybe it’s time we stepped-back and took a gigantic hit of Kindness.

Free All Non-Violent Drug Offenders.

There’s nothing offensive about getting high in the name of opening-up your mind. What’s offensive is opening-up skulls in the name of Law & Order.

Law is supposed to reflect Justice. Order is supposed to reflect Tranquility. You’re not Protecting anyone if what you’re Serving is violent.

You don’t have to get high to dig my flow, check it out: replace Police Batons with Nerf Batons, replace Pepper Spray with Silly String, replace Criminal Codes with Quirky Stickers, replace Prison Bars with Snack Bars, replace Stop & Frisk with Move Along & Have A Nice Day.

I don’t smoke pot anymore. It’s too bad. I could use a hit.

    Darren was at LAX when we asked whether a gay wrestler could succeed in WWE, and Darren laughed, saying, “Absolutely. Look at me. I’m a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gay. And I’m happy. I’m very happy.”

    For the record, Darren is now the first openly gay wrestler ever at WWE … and the first headlining wrestler ever to come out while still signed to a major promotion.

    The real shocker is what his parents had to say, “We are sad and very embarrassed that our son is in the WWE.”
