The amazing landscapes of New Zealand can take you from skiing down pristine slopes in the morning, to relaxing on a white sand beach in the afternoon – just don’t get caught smoking a joint while you’re at it.
In New Zealand, the Misuse of Drugs Act of 1975 made it officially illegal to import, grow, sell, distribute, possess and/or use cannabis in any way, shape, or form. But with more than 4 million residents, and 13.4% of them smoking weed despite the law, the government there is realizing that their decades of patronizing anti-weed fear mongering may be somewhat ineffective.
So their latest idea is…more patronizing anti-weed fear mongering.


Dope! That’s what comic books are! Dope! And those dirty books should be scrubbed, put through the wringer and have the dirt squeezed from them!
At least, that’s the gist of this December 30, 1948 column in the Steamboat (Colorado) Pilot by George Bowra, an (at the time) relatively well-known figure in the American West. The tone of the article is over the top, bordering on satire — which might make sense considering Bowra’s history as a colorful character. But we’re not so sure he was joking.


It is not unusual for a court to hear testimony in a particular case where the defendant uses the excuse of being addicted to drugs in hopes that the judge will sentence them to substance abuse classes and not jail. However, a Massachusetts courtroom took a bizarre turn earlier this week when a woman told the judge that her boyfriend beat the living snot out of her because he wasn’t stoned on marijuana.

It’s probably pretty fair to say that Cletis Williams didn’t have a whole lot of respect for the law.
With a rap sheet as long as his Arkansas drawl, including an alleged “previous altercation” with local police, Williams’ literal and legal contempt for the court system of Jonesboro, Arkansas had earned him a whopping 23 arrest warrants.
Even at the tender age of 57, the 6’2″ 250 pound Williams was not a hard man to find, and it wasn’t long before Jonesboro PD came looking for their version of southern justice.

Phishhead Kush.


The Miami-Dade Democrats have a new chairman and on one hot-button issue, he’s got one of the strongest positions in the state: Sen. Dwight Bullard thinks marijuana should be legal not just for medical purposes but for recreational use.
“Marijuana, whether medical or recreational, could be another way of generating revenue in Florida,” Bullard tells Riptide. “It has a potential for real positive economic impact with real small business growth.”

When tragedy strikes at an event designed for entertainment purposes — and particularly when it’s music — the scenesters and members of the musical industry tend to try to distance themselves from the disaster. There’s always blanket condemnation of drug use and talk of increased security and decreased tolerance for drug use and abuse.

For me, the question becomes not what concert promoters and security companies can do to protect music-lovers from the dangers of drugs; the question becomes what music-lovers can do as a community to take some responsibility for each other and for the scene as a whole.
