but people getting mega wasted as their first experience doesn’t seem like a good idea.
Yeah, I know of one cannabis activist with a very prodigious capacity for consuming it who was knocked over by his first try of shatter. You only need a very little bit.
Plus The new science of psychedelics
A better life through chemistry!
I'm reading that to review right now. Great book!
It is always interesting seeing what happened to people you went to school with, I remember Elliot Ikilei discovering Farrakhan.
I was surprised by how shabby and basic their schtik was and how poorly prepared for NZ Context the ugly little circus act was. Also disappointed that such easily refuted nonsense was enough to seemingly discombobulate Paddy Gower – maybe there wasn’t enough time to really get stuck in.
Same and same. Gower didn't do well. The way to handle an interview with people like that is to quote exactly what they said to them and invite them to explain what they meant. Otherwise they'll just throw the question back, deny, divert, etc.
The absence of fear is what they fear.
Meanwhile, some third-degree burns in Dan Satherly's story for Newshub about the sad grifting video Molyneux posted this morning:
He said the funding is necessary for him to keep speaking out against the "encroaching mob and horde of mindless violence the left seems to want to unleash on the failing remnants of civilisation".
Without more money, Mr Molyneux fears "self-contempt, self-hatred and possibly incarceration or death itself", because "that's what happens when the left gains power".
He then took a shot at Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who at the weekend said Kiwis were "hostile" to Mr Molyneux's views.
"The Prime Minister was the head of a youth socialist organisation not a decade ago, so that's what you get."
Ms Ardern was indeed elected president of the International Union of Socialist Youth in 2008, but since becoming Prime Minister in 2017 is yet to sentence anyone to "incarceration or death" based on their political views.
Human Rights Act. NZ BoRA only applies to public actors.
Damn, you read it before I corrected it on Eddie Clark's advice :-)
ETA: It’s quite likely, IMHO, that smoking it at all would end up being far less common, at which point the whole thing of drying it out would fall by the wayside. For pain it would probably be eaten, and for recreation, vaporized. Both are much healthier than inhaling hot smoke.
I think so, especially as vaporisers get better and cheaper. I'm not sure about the way some jurisdictions aren't allowing concentrates for that reason.
That Tom Scott is truly something special, and I love the played backing, ironically not a million miles away from what his Dad was doing circa 94.
The (amazing) video for the track drops tomorrow – and I'm pretty sure that's his Dad in it.
And on another (but related) front: the Science Media Centre has gathered some good expert opinion on policy responses to the synthetics crisis.
