Well, so much for building a hobbit house in the side of the mountain and smoking myself into oblivion.

Yep.. hippies unite, cuz your bread and butter has just taken a huge hit from Science Town

No no no… not the kind of hit you can get from a really dirty old hookah pipe, a real hit… one you’d expect to receive after you nooged all over the hookah.

According to New Scientist:

“Smoking cannabis regularly can lead to gum disease in people in their early thirties – much younger than generally expected. Lifestyle factors associated with the condition are also linked to chronic diseases later in life, and some argue that gum disease itself may contribute to cardiovascular disease directly.

A quarter of people who had smoked cannabis regularly from 18 to 32 years old had established gum disease, found the study led by Murray Thomson at the Dunedin School of Dentistry in New Zealand.

In 2007, the same team showed that smoking tobacco also significantly raises the risk of gum disease in young people”

Well, we all knew it was just a matter of time before the powers that be decided to wreak havoc on the weak-ass hippy stoners. I’m inclined to believe it’s all a big conspiracy. Think about it, it really has little to do with Science at all. I mean, we all know that the Dentists at the Dunedin School of Dentistry are really just government spies, working out plots to keep marijuana illegal. hah. It all dates back to racist tension in the U.S. over the influx of Mexican-Americans in the 1900s.
Read it!

However, I’m always more inclined to blame Tom Cruise and Scientology for everything, it’s way more logical, and way more fun.

You’ll also see that the history of marijuana’s criminalization is filled with:

  • Racism
  • Fear
  • Protection of Corporate Profits
  • Yellow Journalism
  • Ignorant, Incompetent, and/or Corrupt Legislators
  • Personal Career Advancement and Greed

Yep… sounds like Scientology to me!

Well kids, smoke your reefer, and clean your pipe, but for God’s sake, don’t forget to floss.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go smoke some cannabis with some of my fellow homo-sapiens and discuss the ethics of quantum physics.
