How to fill the marijuana petition

I don’t know why, but every time I hear about someone who wants marijuana legalized, the first thought that comes to my mind is, “Oh boy, another marijuana smoker didn’t get his munchies so now he has to pick on the government.”

Seriously though, my favorite thing to do to potheads is to cut in front of them in the line at 7-Eleven at about 1:30 in the morning; they are so polite even though I’m a bit rude! Try that at one o’clock in the afternoon and people will tell you to get in the back of the line. People are rude when they aren’t high.

At any rate, regarding Steve Erickson’s letter in favor of Initiative 1068, the Marijuana Reform Act. Here is what I can do for you, Mr. Erickson: I can’t sign the petition because I actually care about important things, and I can’t get 5,000 people to sign it for you. But, I do have one friend who will sign the petition 5,000 times if you catch him coming out of 7-Eleven at 1:30 in the morning!
