Maryland Police Chief Humiliated After Citing Satirical Article To Oppose Pot Legalization

 

 

 

” Testifying against legislation that would decriminalize marijuana in Maryland, the Annapolis police chief cited a satirical article that claimed 37 pot deaths occurred on the first day Colorado legalized its sale.

“ The first day of legalization, that’s when Colorado experienced 37 deaths that day from overdose on marijuana,” Chief Michael Pristoop said on Tuesday as part of testimony during a Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee hearing. “I remember the first day it was decriminalized there were 37 deaths.”

  Pristoop was quickly corrected by a sponsor of one of the bills, according to the Capital Gazette.

“ Unless you have some other source for this, I’m afraid I’ve got to spoil the party here,” said Sen. Jamie Raskin. “Your assertion that 37 people died of a marijuana overdose in Colorado was a hoax on the Daily Currant and the Comedy Central website.”

  The Daily Currant posted the article – Marijuana Overdoses Kill 37 in Colorado on First Day of Legalization – on Jan. 2. It has since been shared over 24,000 times across various social media and other web platforms.”

 

    Good Lord , we are led by idiots … this man and thousands like him are the ones we should trust to protect us ? A man of tremendous authority over the citizenry that cannot even distinguish fact from fiction ? God help us .

Read the rest … and groan

 

 

 

 

 

From The DailyCurrant Comes Word Of A Tragedy

 

 

” The man responsible for operating the Olympic Rings during last night’s Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Russia was found dead today.

  According to local reports the body of Boris Avdeyev was found his hotel room early this morning with multiple stab wounds.

  Avdeyev was a technical specialist responsible for the Olympic Ring spectacle, which embarrassingly malfunctioned last night. Five animatronic snowflakes were supposed to transform into Olympic Rings. The first four functioned properly but the fifth snowflake failed to change shape.

  Although his body was badly mangled and the wounds were consistent with a struggle, so far officials say they don’t suspect foul play.

“ Sure there were stab wounds and bruises all over the body,” admits the lead investigator on the case. “But who knows what caused them. Maybe he tripped and fell on a set of knives. Right now we’re ruling this an accidental death.”
