Is Fox Coming Out With A Marijuana Legalization Sitcom? Can We Expect ‘The Happy Tree’ To Come Across Our Televisions Sooner Than Later? I just saw the following message come across Drug Policy Alliance’s Twitter Feed: “Fox sitcom about marijuana legalization in the works” Naturally, my interest was peaked. I would like to see a sitcom that does both. According to Deadline.Com: The Happy Tree, from former Entourage executive producers Rob Weiss, Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson, centers on a brilliant young corporate attorney who, after a nervous breakdown, quits his job and seeks a life of peace and serenity on Venice Beach only to find himself the unlikely voice for the marijuana “legalize it” movement.” Well Venice Beach readers, this is your chance to have your marijuana culture thrust into homes across America.
Marginal Revolution: How to disappear Tips from a teacher (markets in everything): There are three key steps to disappearing. First, destroy old information about yourself. Then, create bogus information to fool private investigators who might be looking for you. The next, final step is the most important one. Is that last sentence so reassuring? Usually, I don’t hear back from my clients. I occasionally wonder that if I had a) a new identity, b) enough money to live on, and c) a willingness to live abroad and no family for them to threaten, how long would it take a team of ten professional hit men to find me. For the pointer I thank Henry Farrell. Addendum: Bruce Bartlett refers me to www.escapeartist.com.
My Fridge Food - Recipes you already have in your Fridge Tyler Durden’s 8 Rules of Innovation We all want to do remarkable things, and lead remarkable lives. No one wants to spend the day engaged in mundane productivity in pursuit of a meaningless consumer existence. Certainly not you, right? So why do we find it so hard to break out of our rut and do truly innovative things? Because it’s hard. It’s almost like becoming another person. I Know This Because Tyler Knows This… If you haven’t seen the movie Fight Club (or read Chuck Palahniuk’s excellent novel), I won’t spoil the fantastic plot twist where we come to understand who Tyler Durden really is. At its core, Fight Club is about living the life you truly want to live, and the hard path to getting there. Luckily, Tyler says a lot of things that apply directly to innovative action. Tyler’s First Rule of Innovation: “No fear. This is the most important lesson, and it’s the one people struggle with and resist.

Some anniversaries provide an occasion for celebration, others a time for reflection, still others a time for action. It's hard to believe that Americans have spent roughly a trillion dollars (give or take a few hundred million) on this forty-year war. Reflect we must on not just the consequences of this war at home but abroad as well. Wars can be costly -- in money, rights and lives -- but still necessary to defend national sovereignty and core values. If the demand for any of these drugs were two, five or ten times what they are today, the supply would be there. Republican and Democratic governors confronting massive state budget deficits are now endorsing alternatives to incarceration for nonviolent drug law offenders that they would have rejected out of hand just a few years ago.

Join our email list: Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email. President Bush recently touted new survey results showing a modest drop in teen use of marijuana and other drugs, but he failed to mention the drug for which prevention efforts have had the most spectacular success -- tobacco. Citing the results of the annual Monitoring the Future survey, Bush noted that drug use has declined from its recent peak in 1996, but sidestepped the longer-term picture that doesn't look nearly so rosy. If you go back 15 years, to 1992, drug use is up almost across the board. This contrasts sharply with the figures on adolescent cigarette use. While marijuana use is higher among all age groups than it was 15 years ago, cigarette smoking has dropped remarkably. And here's a figure that may be shocking: Among 10th-graders, 14.0 percent currently smoke cigarettes, while 14.2 percent smoke marijuana. So what accounts for the drop in tobacco use?
Myths About Cannabis Misconceptions Cannabis is probably the world’s most popular casual use drug that is illegal in most nations. It has become so widespread that many people wouldn’t think twice about asking to light up at a friend’s or to smoke in public places. It is an ancient drug that has been used throughout history for medical, magical, and pleasurable purposes. Myth: Cannabis’ active ingredient THC gets stored in body fat and its effects can last days or even weeks Fact: It is true that cannabis (like many other drugs) enters the body’s fat stores, and it is for this reason that it can be detected long after use, but that is the only part of this myth which is true. Myth: Cannabis use causes memory loss and a general reduction in logic and intelligence Fact: This is another myth which has elements of truth to it – no doubt the reason it is believed by so many. Myth: Cannabis has been scientifically proven to be harmful Myth: Cannabis use causes apathy and a lack of motivation Sources:1. Jamie Frater

reddit: the front page of the internet Why is a raven like a writing desk? A Straight Dope Classic from Cecil's Storehouse of Human Knowledge April 18, 1997 Dear Cecil: This is something that drives me crazy every time I hear it: "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" Is there really a hilarious answer to this seemingly impossible riddle? — Mary, via the Internet Dear Mary: This riddle is famous, although it's the rarefied kind of fame that entails most people never having heard of it. "Have you guessed the riddle yet?" At this point most of us are thinking: Ho-ho, that Lewis Carroll, is he hilarious or what? Oh, they say. Lewis Carroll himself got bugged about this so much that he was moved to write the following in the preface to the 1896 edition of his book: Did this discourage people? Because the notes for which they are noted are not noted for being musical notes. Not bad for amateurs. A comment concerning Lewis Carroll's infamous "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" — Connor Freff Cochran, via AOL — Raistlin Wakefield, via the Internet Cecil replies: So, Mary.
