10. To End On A High Note
In 2015, more Americans than ever before smoked marijuana legally, and as trained observers of weird news and strange crime, we made this observation -- nothing changed.
A man walked around for three hours without realizing he had a knife in his skull
, another man heard his penis "snap" during sex
, and a woman augmented her record-setting size 32-Z breasts
-- and none of this had anything to do with pot. Nor did weed inspire a guy to tie 110 helium balloons to his lawn chair
so that he would float a mile high over the Calgary, Canada, sky as a stunt to promote his cleaning products business.
Of course, anything can be abused. Cops in Austintown, Ohio, responded to a 911 call from a guy who said he was, "too high." They indeed found him in a fetal position under a mountain of "Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish and Chips Ahoy cookies."
But that's probably not why Ohio voted against legal marijuana.
As we celebrated with Tommy Chong at the January launch party for his Futurola Roller
, he told us that the war on marijuana was over
and that "we totally won."
Of course, if a certain yellow-haired casino owner sits in the Oval Office after next year's election, maybe we'll reassess.
