New Uses for Cat Poop! And More

Now that our government has told us how to dispose of old medicines ,
we all must have a cat. Mix your old Vicodin with cat poop, they say, and dispose of it. Druggies would never sift through cat poop to find pills. Dont' be too sure...have you smelled a meth lab? And aren't these the same guys that smoke mushrooms collected from cow poop? (No pictures with this story).

From Bessemer...a progressive ordinance was passed as the council last night banned smoking in public places including restuarants. Some say this is not a sign of progress, but I say that which promotes public health is progress. However...still no passage of a water bond. More on the council meeting tomorrow.

And from the Clinton campaign:

11/6/2007
Alabama Leaders Endorse Clinton
The Clinton Campaign today announced the endorsements of seven Alabama community leaders from across the state.
“Hillary is ready to lead on her first day in the White House and immediately begin delivering the change this country needs,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Ron Sparks.
“Hillary is passionate about helping people, it's at the root of who she is,” said Jefferson County Commissioner Shelia Smoot. “She doesn't change with the wind, she’s always working on our behalf to make a difference. America will be a better place with Hillary as our President.”
“I am grateful for the overwhelming support I’ve received in Alabama,” Clinton said. “With the help of these local leaders, we’ll take our message of change across the state and this nation.”
ALABAMA LEADERS ENDORSING HILLARY (YESTERDAY):
Commissioner of Agriculture Ron Sparks
Public Service Commissioner Susan Parker
Jefferson County Commissioner Shelia Smoot
State Senator Linda Coleman
State Senator E.B. McClain
State Representative Priscilla Dunn
State Representative Alvin Holmes
Bessemer Opinions Joe Openshaw (actually I just added that one).

My bid to become a delegate is going to be tough. There are 7 delegates to be elected from this district (congressional district 7), 3 males and 4 females, and well known public figures have already qualified. Here's a list of candidates...my name is not on the list yet, but my form is on the way. However, a number of delegates will be added after the election, and Hillary (when she wins) will have some say in that...and word is they have inquired about gay or lesbian delegates, as the democratic party seeks to be inclusive. So if I can't get more votes than Earl Hilliard, Gover Dunn and E. B. McLain, I may still be able to become a delegate. It is an interesting process.

Huh?

Anyway, re: "And aren't these the same guys that smoke mushrooms collected from cow poop?"

Uhm, no. First, mushrooms aren't smoked, they're eaten or made into tea. Second, I assure you that the mushroom eating crowd is completely and totally seperate from, and different than pill-poppers or meth users. Here's an interesting story:

Its a bit disappointing to see you intellectually victimized by War on Drugs propaganda, even if you were kinda kidding around.

Anonymous,
You don't know me very well if you think I have been victimized by the war on drugs propoganda.

First of all, I grew up in the 60's. That should tell you enough right there.

Next, mushrooms can indeed be smoked, and "smoking mushrooms" makes a better point than "boiling mushrooms." And yes, I know the mushroom crowd is different than the meth crowd. Sorry for trying to entertain.

Jason B.,

See today's post when I get to it.

I will back up Joe's mushrooms can be smoked statement. Never tried it but seen it done. Totally smelled like ass.

sorry, you're both absolutely wrong. While it is technically possible to smoke mushrooms, there is no point in doing so, as the chemical of interest, psilocybin, is totally destroyed in the proccess. I tell the truth.

And joe, i may have sounded more critical than i meant to be. I just wanted to point out that the kind of statements that you made only further the kind of misconceptions and bigotry that the Drug War has sought to instill in the populous. I ask you to keep that in mind.

Joe said...

I don't claim to be expert on mushrooms (except I have a great recipe for Cajun mushrooms that I serve at the Christmas party), but if you google smoking mushrooms you will find several sites that relate people's claims to getting effects. Sure, tea or eating might give you more bang for your buck.

Be specific...what staements did I make that further misconceptions and bigotry regarding the (so called) war on drugs?

You are accusing someone who thinks the war on drugs is worthless, believes in decriminalizing most drug laws, legalizing medical mj use for a start.
