Seriously?   Kurt can take care of himself.

But Ohmsen, speaking of civil discourse, I am intrigued by your gangbang-gang metaphor.  Have you ever participated in a gang bang?  Where were you in the line up?    Did you have to use lubricant?   Would you describe the experience as 'satisfying'? 

Gang bangs are outside my experience, hence the questions.  I have heard these stories on and off over the decades of young heroic women getting drunk and then in a semi-comatose state sexually servicing all 20 young men of great stature who belong to a great athletic team.  Or a great dudes in a motorcycle club.  

If Trump was in charge, he would give these heroic, patriotic young women medals of freedom or similar.

So come now Ohmsen, share with us your gang-bang experiences.  

 
You're fixations are getting really weird.  Lubricants ?  Really ?  May I stir some sand in your vaseline ?

I'm pretty sure that Ohmsen was speaking in terms of street gangs as in that kind of gang bangers, not sexually as you would like it to mean.  At least that is what came to my mind having been part of the street scene for so many years.  Ya know, the Crypts and the Bloods.  Maybe it's because you Canadians are so civilized and polite that you don't have any and have no concept of them.  But this is the Marijuana thread and street gangs are the logical fit. 

Sexual gang bangs, imho, would belong to all the alcohol threads and all of you drunkards out there.  {#Drunk}

Remember, stay safe.  No glove, no love ...

kurtster:   I am rather familiar with the concept of civil disobedience, thank you. -hehe-

I also agree with the others.  Smoking weed in an isolated wood lot is NOT civil disobedience.   Smoking weed on the steps of the Vancouver Court House IS civil disobedience.  Online mail ordering of seeds is civil disobedience.  


You want to check out cannabis related civil disobedience that was ultimately very effective, read up on Marc Emery's story.    Marc did manage to "overgrow the government".       He spent 5 years in a US jail for that project but nobody claims that civil disobedience is a 'free lunch'. 

Emery is by far the coolest libertarian alive today in Canada.  Personally I would have dumped Maxime Bernier's Peoples Party of Canada and not run in this most recent federal election.   Bernier opposed vaccine and mask mandates.  Oh well.  Nobody is perfect.

It is the job of an attorney to use and operate within the justice system legally.  The person that this discussion centers on has not been properly processed and gone through the proper channels of the system he is charged with upholding, defending and using.  That the system is not working fast enough for some is a separate issue.  No excuse to invalidate the system which allowing this person to practice law in spite of his legal condition does.

And supporting this and claiming justice is preserved is some real serious hypocrisy.

And then to equate this with a whole different scenario simply for the purpose of brow beating someone is petty and demeaning.  But that is how you all roll here.

For the smart asses who claim to know what civil disobedience is, consider use of cannibus 50 years ago and the laws were very, very different along with the other risks involved then.  How many of you would use it now if those same laws were in force now ?  Probably none of ya.  I walked the talk all these years so you lightweights can now party with little if any risk to your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

So fuck off, to whomever it may concern ...


Oh time to go back to the discussion that you said was too old to bring up. I thought we were done with that. So, yeah, I have a problem with someone being stuck in his situation and think the court made a sensible legal decision. Hypocrisy is saying you want to uphold the law but not the decisions of the court. I also think that you should have a system similar to Australia where someone who submits a valid immigration application is granted a bridging visa to give them legal status until their case is decided.

As to comparing to a different scenario, aside from you being the one who brought up your professional license, besides, this is the (checks notes: Marijuana: Baked News) forum. No, I don't think your personal marijuana use has anything to do with changing the laws, nor do I think that anyone who wants to follow the laws now, in the places where recreational marijuana use is legal (i.e. not Ohio) owes you anything for your sacrifice. Nor, do I think people have any reason to apologize for following the law.

I knew this one was coming.  Civil disobedience does not require getting arrested to be real.  Acknowledging and accepting the risk of arrest and real hard time for engagement in an activity is sufficient.  It is accepting that the lies put forth by the government to justify an unjust and immoral law is grounds for defying it, be it either peacefully privately or peacefully publicly, the intent is the same.  It is the intent that defines the act.

Life is much different when you have real skin in the game.  Few if any of you are even old enough to have had skin in the game.

People who engage in civil obedience tend to accept the consequences of their protest. The treetop flyer tries to avoid consequences.

Fake civil disobedience.

And why won't you let your customers know about your protest so they can make their own decision on whether to give you their business?

How do you get out of bed in the morning living in a place that you despise so much and makes your very being miserable ?


Privately ignoring the law for your own pleasure isn't civil disobedience. Putting up a sign at your work saying, "You should be aware that the person poking around your eyes believes that his marijuana use doesn't impact his job performance. If you disagree, you may want to take your business elsewhere." Don't they have a right to know?
