back to article O Christmas wreath, O Christmas wreath, thy potent skunk's in bunches

Nothing says Christmas like a wreath. Except of course a reefer wreath. But why stop at Jesus and Mary, when you can add a full ounce of Mary Jane, dressed with eucalyptus, wheat and rosemary that stoners can use to decorate their knockers this festivus. The seasonal arrangement, only on sale in Los Angeles, is the result of a …

Re: Pics

So I'm not the only one who caught that one. Good :)

It made me think of this article from a few days ago. It's in danish, but the pics don't need much a translation. It's probably NSFW, depending on your workplace.

Wouldn't it be Dickens's? Unless it's the property of all the Dickenses that descended from Charles, then it would be Dickenses'.

Dickens' or Dickens's are acceptable but the former is the modern, preferred usage in the UK.

Even with tax, it should still be cheaper than buying it on the black market. Plus, at least some of your money would go e.g. to the NHS as opposed to funding some thug's fast car.

Besides, if it's legal you can grow it legally.

And Colorado then enacted a law to prevent children from being within X number of feet from dispensaries. The given reason was to protect children from the influence of pot; but many believe (based on timing, etc.) that the real reason was to protect the stoners from Girl Scouts, armed with cookies.

Maybe it's me.. but hang that overpriced decoration on the front door? No way. I'll just go buy the weed and keep it secure until it's all been turned into glorious smoke. The neighbors can go get their own instead of stealing off my front door. Yeah... I'm a bit a Grinch when it comes to the really good stuff and only share with really good friends.

Harrods do a "Large Highland Wreath (85cm)" - no weed - a mere GBP555***

***yes - Five hundred and fifty five British smackers. At that price you might have expected a bottle of a single malt in there somewhere.

Re: @ $400 per Oz.

Yeah but you can get a 50cm wreath on ebay for £6.37 , meaning that ounce is somewhere around $390

I dont know how people who can spend £555 on a temporary plant decoration for their door can live with themselves.
