You mean Ohmsen made a second language mistake with a popular slang expression such as gang bangers?   Oh.

Yes, we have lots of gang bangers up here in Canada-land — in part due to our immigration policy and the slow, difficult 'integration' that results.  They are mostly no longer involved in weed.  For what remains of the black market, volume and some expertise is required.   US hip hop culture helped glorify the gang banger culture up here too.  There was, perhaps still is, a big influence on First Nation gangs.  The USA, always a great neighbour and friend, also helped with the illegal exportation of firearms.  

The great thing about criminals going up scale?   Less violence.  Less threat to the security of the public. 

And you are right that gang bangs appear to always involve alcohol.  


In so much as American lack of legal gun control and extreme interpretation of second amendment rights are entrenched in government policy, the exportation of guns, violent culture, and attacks on allies, even if by non-government groups are illustrations of how the US is engaged in terrorism.

You do not know that he was too 'stoned' to get it right.  Seriously, now you are starting to sound like Trump or one of his supporters .......

As an aside, I worked briefly out of the UFW AFL-CIO boycott office in East L.A. in the early 1980s.  The crash house was in West L.A.   I was stunned at all the stripped vehicles lying around on concrete blocks.  Was not impressed with the air quality; tried to get out and run before 7AM before the air quality got even worse.

Even more impressive was the massive chip on the shoulder of some of the Chicano staff.

So how do you choose which laws/rules you follow?  Do they shift as the day moves along? How many apply to everyone other than you?  How can you justify being mad at any other rule breaker when this is your own policy?

You're really late to the party here.  You're one of those who now participates only because the laws have changed in your "hood".

I'm not going to get into a debate about street cred with someone like you who has no idea what you are even talking about.  

Have you seen the movie Grand Canyon ?  The Steve Martin character comes to mind regarding your street cred.  It's been a real long time since I've seen it, but I think the shoe fits.

Ohhhh spicy. Yeah, not spelling, you got the name of a major and well known gang wrong while trying to show how well you 'knew the scene'.  I'll allow that you probably did know the correct name, but it was lost in a fog of pot smoke.  I may not  know what I'm talking about, but at least I can get the names right (well, most of the time. and when I screw it up, I own it). 

As for Steve Martin analogies, I like to think of myself as My Blue Heaven, but in reality I'm probably closer to Roxanne with a bit of Three Amigos.

Seriously?   Kurt can take care of himself.

But Ohmsen, speaking of civil discourse, I am intrigued by your gangbang-gang metaphor.  Have you ever participated in a gang bang?  Where were you in the line up?    Did you have to use lubricant?   Would you describe the experience as 'satisfying'? 

Gang bangs are outside my experience, hence the questions.  I have heard these stories on and off over the decades of young heroic women getting drunk and then in a semi-comatose state sexually servicing all 20 young men of great stature who belong to a great athletic team.  Or a great dudes in a motorcycle club.  

If Trump was in charge, he would give these heroic, patriotic young women medals of freedom or similar.

So come now Ohmsen, share with us your gang-bang experiences.  

 
You're fixations are getting really weird.  Lubricants ?  Really ?  May I stir some sand in your vaseline ?

Sexual gang bangs, imho, would belong to all the alcohol threads and all of you drunkards out there.  {#Drunk}

kurtster:   I am rather familiar with the concept of civil disobedience, thank you. -hehe-

I also agree with the others.  Smoking weed in an isolated wood lot is NOT civil disobedience.   Smoking weed on the steps of the Vancouver Court House IS civil disobedience.  Online mail ordering of seeds is civil disobedience.  


You want to check out cannabis related civil disobedience that was ultimately very effective, read up on Marc Emery's story.    Marc did manage to "overgrow the government".       He spent 5 years in a US jail for that project but nobody claims that civil disobedience is a 'free lunch'. 

Emery is by far the coolest libertarian alive today in Canada.  Personally I would have dumped Maxime Bernier's Peoples Party of Canada and not run in this most recent federal election.   Bernier opposed vaccine and mask mandates.  Oh well.  Nobody is perfect.
