Sorry to nitpick, but are we certain this is Washington? It says "Colorado" in the corner at the end.

But more to the point: this is so fuckin pathetic of whoever put this PSA out. It's legal, accept it and go. Get the word out that driving stoned is against the law, but do we need the part where "OH ALSO EVEN IF YOU DO IT IN YOU'RE HOME YOU'RE GONNA BE A FUCKIN MORON JUST SO YA KNOW!"

Yeah these are Colorado. They get the point across in that one of my fears was that everyone who may have never smoked weed before would smoke a lot of it just because they could. If it was anything like my first time it was like "huh. I don't feel anything. Guess I'll just smoke more." When the high came it was one of the most uncomfortable feelings I'd ever had, and I've done a lot of drugs. Considering I spent a good 15 minutes at a cross-walk on my way home, thank god that I wasn't driving, just a stoned 12 year old. They say it's different for everyone of course, but I've known enough weed smokers who claim they're better behind the wheel when they're high, and it's simply not true. That's like saying that you're better driving after a few drinks if you don't drive much because you're less anxious on the road.

But these commercials just make weed look like a joke. You might as well have commercials for Jim Beam showcasing an abusive husband that's how stereotypical this is: "Beat up your wife and smash the bottle on her head, she's got tampons that'll work like band-aids, just don't drive to the store."

Also, per my first comment: your*. I get sloppy when I get indignant...

just remember to get indignant at home :)

Seriously, I do work with certain musical non-profits and hear about stuff going on in Colorado and Washington was well as other states, and one of them was the Denver Symphony's "High Note" series, which is basically "BYOBud." So the angle there is that classical music is great when you're high, which frankly it is. Weed's also great for writing college papers, creating art, and for some, watching Adventure Time marathons.

The pro-weed stance there mixed with this PSA implies that you'll get there and stare at a violinist trying to remember how Vivaldi's Four Seasons movement no 1 goes.

Totally serious question:

Is that Paul Bartel's son?

infinite zest - 2014-07-25

Sure looks like him. Acts like him too. But unless he adopted I don't think that is possible. However I now have the urge to get high and watch Private Parts.
