Majikthise reports that while having actual marijuana in your home remains illegal, painting pictures of marijuana on your house is not yet verboten.

NEXT: Chinatown, Freetown

  1. No picture?

  2. And that’s just on High Street. You should see what they’re painting on their houses around the corner on Totally Friggin’ Wasted Street.

  3. My station did a story about this guy, including an interview.
    As with all people who end up on TV discussing legalization, he had unfocused eyes, a scruffy beard, beads, an ill-fitting knit cap, and every other Phish-fan accoutrement.
    So, are the legalization forces so stoned that they can’t find spokesperson steeped in Spencer’s Gifts-variety counterculture?
    I’ll go so far as to say that legalization will not make any headway until the powers-that-be sever all ties with the hippies. Hippies can’t be that big of a help to the movement anyway.
    I mean. they’re hippies…

  4. Well, it’s also a matter of who the TV producer chooses: “Hey – hey! Check out that guy – the one with the beads and the cap and stuff! He’ll be perfect for the pot story, get him!” Clearly, the answer is the rounding up and eradication of hippies.

  5. “So, are the legalization forces so stoned that they can’t find spokesperson steeped in Spencer’s Gifts-variety counterculture?”

    Jeff, I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the situation is the same as with the gun-rights movement, where a news crew will walk past an entire crowd of nicely dressed rational people in order to get an interview with the single camouflage-clad, tinfoil hat-wearing froot loop.

    Pandering to people’s stereotypes gets ratings.

  7. Five months after Christopher Seekins was arrested and charged with cultivating marijuana in his home, neighbors have complained about the giant marijuana leaves he has spray-painted on the outside of his home on High Street.

    I’m surprised he still has a home, what with civil forfeiture.

    Pandering to people’s stereotypes gets ratings.

    Ya beat me to it.
