No, not me. The show.
What, you never heard of it? It’s on HBO, and there’s lots more weed in this show than in Weeds. And it’s handled well and honestly: it’s perfectly normal for people to use it, not like the “Ooh, ooh!” nonsense like on virtually every other sitcom out there (Two And A Half Men, I’m talking to you…that one episode might have set back medical marijuana for years in any states that don’t have it yet).
Anyway, I was watching tonight’s episode on DVR with my youngest son, when suddenly George (a very believable character played by Ted Danson) is sitting on the floor inflating a bag with a Volcano. I remarked to my son how 5 months ago I wouldn’t have even known what the thing even was, and then he told me that he (a complete non-user of anything stronger than slightly overripe apple cider) would have known.
ORLY, I said, stopping playback. And how would that be? So he told me this great story of how he was walking across the parking lot of his old school and saw one of the campus monitors using one in his car with a handy 12V adapter.
So much for a drug-free campus… 🙂
Anyway, we keep watching and George is now on a mission in his car, so with the aplomb of a seasoned warrior (albeit a weekend warrior from Connecticut) he now pulls out a little black plastic gadget that I instantly recognize as an Iolite (from all the discussions on /r/trees). Now it’s my son’s turn to raise his eyebrows. What, why shouldn’t I recognize the thing? I know all kinds of weed-related trivia now!
Anyway, if you haven’t seen the show, give it a try.
