I wasn't going to post anything on Governor Jerry Brown saying that legalizing marijuana might turn everyone into a bunch of lazy stoners because who cares. I could go on all day about how how much tax revenue California could be raking in if our state's political leadership wasn't so beholden to law enforcement special interests.
In fact, I will go on a bit about that. Late last month, Colorado officials announced they expect to earn $184 million in taxes within the first 18 months since legalization took effect on Jan. 1. Meanwhile, here in California, our statewide medical marijuana industry is in disarray and the only people earning any money from the situation are lawyers and cops. And it looks like the soonest voters will have a chance to vote in favor of legalizing pot won't be until November 2016.

On a brighter note, those wacky Taiwanese animators have a funny video depicting Jerry Brown as a senile old fart as well as gun-toting Colorado rednecks turning into brownie-eating stoners after being put under a pot spell by some kind of marijuana pixie.
