Looks like the activists from NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) have the Commonwealth on their radar as the next state to tackle when it comes to legalizing pot. Their goal is to get a question on the 2016 ballot which would allow residents to vote on legalization of the ol' reefer. Many people have mixed emotions about this, but the overwhelming majority of the people with whom we spoke this morning, in addition to texters and people on facebook, felt that marijuana should be legalized. Here are some of the reasons they offered:
- Tax revenue for states
- Too much money spent prosecuting and incarcerating individuals convicted of possession/sale of marijuana
- Medicinal purposes (outside of having to actually get approved for medical use)
- Reduce cartel traffic
And, like one person on facebook pointed out, you can ask yourself these questions: When was the last time you saw an angry pot smoker? When was the last time you saw an angry drunk?
Read more about it here, and comment below whether you think marijuana should be legalized or not in Massachusetts.
Yesterday, we discussed the Swiss Cheese Masturbator in Philadelphia. Police have released a photo of the suspect, and it's just as gross as you would expect:
By the way... you can't talk about cheese without thinking about THIS:
Later in the show, I took you inside the warped female mind. A listener had emailed us and said that she was in a relationship with a new guy and she was just crazy about him. The problem? She has slept with 12 guys and he has bedded only two women. She feared that he might judge her if she was honest with him about the number of partners she's had. Naturally, we all had differing opinions on the subject. If you missed it, here's what we advised her.
A NH man found himself in a tough spot yesterday morning after the strippers he picked up at the club in South Hadley took off with his wallet, license, and car. He had taken them back to a hotel in Chicopee, and had started to fall asleep. You NEVER fall asleep before the stripper leaves! Later on, a man identifying himself as "Fred" called in and claimed to be the victim in the story. Was it really him? You be the judge.
Some other topics we covered:
A man in Florida was shot and killed for texting during the movie previews.
A NJ man is selling one of Hitler's toilets. Used, of course.
Octomom has been accused of welfare fraud and is facing jail time. Comment below - do you think she should be spared because of the kids?
And our friend, former NE Patriot Matt Light, joined us again this morning to talk about the upcoming Pats-Broncos matchup. Here's what he had to say, in case you missed it.
Big thanks to Michael's Deli in Coolidge Corner. They stopped by to bring us some DELISH pastrami sandwiches this morning in honor of National Hot Pastrami Sandwich Day!
