I just happened upon this great cartoon from Twitter’s @ricklondon.
You can buy your own copy at Zazzle in various poster-sized forms.
Of course longtime NORML readers know this isn’t the first time we’ve seen marijuana in a bodybuilding gym (Gov. Schwarzenegger famously toked a doob in the film “Pumping Iron”.)
By the way, there was strong pot in the 60′s, too. When the government tells you that potency has gone up, remember this is a sample of the potency of what they have seized. Back in the day, the feds seized a whole lot of feral hemp – ditchweed that nobody tokes – and that dropped the overall average.
Cannabis potency overall may have doubled since the 60s and 70s, thanks to more indoor growing and selective breeding, but it’s nowhere near the 8x-400x (really!) more potent some prohibitionists claim. Potency is irrelevant because THC is non-toxic; all more potent pot does is get you high with less of it. Back in the day, you “smoked two joints in the morning” because that’s what it took to get high. Now you smoke a bowl or two and get high, requiring less pot and therefore less smoke in your lungs. Isn’t that a good thing?
