One thing about having a large(ish) number of blog visitors: it attracts a large number of spam comments.
Comments spam comes in waves. There are the sex spammers (including the Eskimo sex people, and no, I didn’t check them out), the medication spammers (Viagra, tranquilizers, painkillers, anti-depressants), the dating sites, and the get-rich-quick spammers. You get them in bunches.
Today’s wave of spammers? Smoke-a-joint spammers!
What the hey?
I don’t smoke pot (actually, I don’t smoke at all). Smoke gives me a huge headache. And like the rest of the spam, I’m not interested at all in any of it.
Is it because of this?
It seems part of the popularity of marijuana questions was fueled by NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, which was urging its members to vote for questions supporting the legalization of cannabis.
So now we have a group canvassing for legalizing yet another drug.
Picture, if you may, people driving 90 miles an hour on the NJ Turnpike while smoking pot because it’s legal… and because pot relaxes you in a stressful situation, like turnpike traffic.
If that doesn’t give you a headache, I don’t know what would.
