Yes, if a dog was really on the way. It could have been a bluff.

But you have to admit, changing your tune on permission to search after mention of a dog doesn't help with the "I knew nothing about that money" line. A better approach would have been "Dog's coming? Cool! Can I pet it?" It's possible that he underestimated how thorough of a search would be conducted without a dog.

Does anybody care that a man who was evidently heroically supplying our community with ganje will spend his golden years in the slammer?

I think the pharmaceutical companies are on the verge of being able to regulate and distribute THC and who knows where it will go from there. For anyone who's had the opportunity, electronic cigarettes are a big business right now and while I wouldn't say it's "just like smoking" I will say it's in the general ballpark. These devices which use a small battery to atomize water into vapor and then mix it with nicotine and flavoring for you to inhale could just as easily contain THC.

While not devoid of health risks, electronic joints would eliminate smoke and odor and make it possible for you to get stoned discreetly while driving a bus, operating a day care or flying a 747 filled with 300 unwitting passengers.

The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades.

If the articles I've read on people using medical marijuana vs various forms of processed THC are true, the buzz is radically different and more powerful with THC.

I understand the need for the powers that be to outlaw anything they can't control, quantify, tax, and monopolize, but I keep hoping.

Interesting article from 2010 on the bombing: http://econospeak.blogspot.com/2010/08/ ... rling.html

What happened to Karl? Is he still in Madison? I haven't seen Loose Juice in years.

I just noticed Dwight Armstrong passed away in 2010. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/27/us/27armstrong.html

Leo Burt still at large. David Fine is a law clerk in Oregon.

Karl worked at Badger Cab when I was there in 2007. I only saw him once or twice maybe, but it was a great story to tell college kids taking the cab... "You could've got a ride with Karl Armstrong..."
