Who's ready for propaganda? Seriously, this is some straight pro-legalization propaganda. Don't quote anything you watch here. Just don't, lest you be mocked most unmercifully.
Anyone else think of John Candy's line from Cool Runnings? "Always remember, your bones will not break in a bobsled. No, no, no. They shatter"
It's like How to Train Your Dragon but with more stabbing and death and less half-assed Scottish accents.
Gaw, hurry the hell up kid, you're holding up the line. Seriously, quit looking at your feet and go. Ok, take a deep breath and we'll go on three. One—*shove*
To keep your pieces clean and hitting at maximum efficiency, you'll need to routinely descale them of tar and resin build-up. This does not mean, however, that you should blow $20 or more at your local head-shop for glorified glass cleaner. Here are two methods for keeping your gear sparkling for practically nothing.
Take one saucepan, fill it with water, put the glassware in as well and heat it above a low flame. As the water boils, it will loosen the resin which liquefies and floats away. Keep the pot at a rolling boil for 5-8 minutes then turn off the heat and let it cool before removing the glass from the water. You can also go over the piece with a soft-bristle pipe cleaner or Q-Tips to touch it up—don't use paper clips, they score the inside of the glass and weaken it over time.
Make sure the glassware is heated and cooled completely before handling—adding the pipe to an already boiling pot of water, or heating/cooling it too quickly will likely shatter it. And also use a pot that you don't cook food in anymore. Getting the stink of liquefied resin out of cookware is no easy feat.
Empty the water from your binger and remove the down-stem. First, pour a 1/4 cup of table salt down the neck of the bong, followed by 3/4 to a full cup of rubbing alcohol. Cover the mouthpiece and stem with your hands and shake it. Keep shaking and swishing the mixture about until it rubs the resin off of the inside walls, then pour out the spent salt/alcohol mix and rinse well. That's it, your pipe is now clean. This also works well on bowls, bubblers and all manner of pipes as well.[Photo Credit: Karin Hildebrand Lau / Shutterstock]
Come May 1st, foreign tourists will be officially banned from Amsterdam's famed pot-selling cafes. That's assuming the cafe owners are willing to forgo a significant portion of the $2.5 billion in revenue they made last year from selling greenery.
"I'm not going to discriminate on the basis of nationality. I've only ever discriminated on the basis of behavior," Michael Veling, the owner of 420 Cafe in Amsterdam explained to the New York Times. "I'll go back to selling alcohol, and go back to selling bags of weed under the counter." And given that cafes have already lost $41 million in revenue since the preliminary statutes of the bill went into effect in October, it will likely be near-impossible to enforce.

Hunting down and killing the dredges of popular media is wrong and very illegal if you actually do it. However, Watching a movie about hunting down and killing the dredges of popular media that's been written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait is just plain awesome.
