Presidential Green Crack.

In the comments to "The cynicism question: What do you want — ἁτυφια or τύφος? Lucidity or smoke? Clarity or choom?," Meade directs us to Presidential Green Crack:
Strain Name: Presidential Green Crack
Grade: A+
Type: Sativa
Looks: shades of green and gold
Smell: smells really good, like clean green bud
Taste: almost tasteless, no skunk taste
Effects: creativity, precision to detail
Potency: I give this 4 out of 4 buds
Reviewed by: sharyna
Good Strain For: tedious work
That's not political satire — I don't think. That's an actual review of a strain of "medical" marijuana.

And we all thought Meade was as pure as the driven Althouse.

If you advertise it as "crack," it had better be good.

I started smoking marijuana at the age of 14 and quit at the age of 17. In the bohemian years before I implemented a reproductive strategy, my musical friends were as likely to fire up a joint as switch on an amplifier. I just can't look at mainstreaming marijuana smoking as an unmitigated good.

" That's an actual review of a strain of "medical" marijuana."

Yeah, but does the page actually address medical use of it? As opposed to "medical use" (the scare quotes represent either snickers or giggles, depending on the level of buzz achieved by the user).

Now, all we need is for the government to classify "tedious work" as a mental illness.

The reactionary edutcher, and the prissy, Annie, don't know shit from shinola about medical cannabis. There are HUNDREDS of strain w/ great names. Go to www.medicalmariujuana.com for a good list. There is also Presidential Bubba keeping w/ the Oval Office theme.

Yeah, this stuff is all fun and games until your 17 year old son gets arrested for smoking pot in the high school bathroom.

But then, that was a last-week scandal. Hopefully this week will be better.

Smoking in the boys' room.

Ignorance is Bliss - Sorry to hear that. As the parent of an occasional juvenile delinquent, I feel your pain.

Naming marijuana strains is a lot like naming future Westminster Kennel Best in Breeds.

Obviously nd does and, for some reason, is proud of it.

By all means, nd, enlighten us.

I happily concede I know nothing about cannibis and have never had any desire to learn how cool it is to wander around like a zombie.

Oso-

Thanks. He's a very intelligent kid, who did something very stupid. Now we need to figure out why, and figure out how to keep him from making such stupid decisions in the future.

He didn't really hurt himself in terms of school, and we can likely avoid a felony conviction with an agreement for counseling plus community service.

What he really cares about is that he is off his sports team for the rest of the season. He was a starter on a team that will almost certainly be playing for the state championship. Not only does he miss out on that, but his team is less likely to win without him. If they lose the state championship in a close game, he will likely get ( and deserve ) a large share of the blame.

Obama still has an addictive personality. His current addiction is to hitting Greens...18 of them per round.

If I did know, I sure wouldn't advertise it on line, since the Obama administration is using the machinery of government to target those it perceives as enemies.

Annie, Yeah..I'm an enemy of the state. One of the good aspects of medical cannabis is it does not cause paranoia like the old ditch weed of the 60's, 70's.

eddie, I have written @ length about medical cannabis previously. I critique from knowledge. You and your fantasy woman talk out of your asses. However, you have the First Amendment protecting you on that.
