Reefer Sadness



Howard Marks

Free this afternoon?

Paradise Paddy, Irish Tour Manager for the late Howard Marks, writes:

I know his spirit is gone up to be with many other spirits in the skies. A gathering of people would be the last virtuous attendance we can give of ourselves for someone who gave so much to the Stoners of the island.

The event is simple in commitment.

We gather outside ‘Our Government’ building Leinster House on Kildare St [Dublin 2] at 4pm TODAY.

At 4.20 pm the annual universal event 4.20 will take place.

At 4.30pm we will raise 21 Spliff Salute to Howard Marks and World Peace. This will be done to a chorus of 70 bong sounds by the people present.

Each bong sound will symbolise each full year Howard had on the earth.

This 5 minute ceremony will show reverence and respect to a great advocate for liberal living in our lifetime.

    It’ll be hilarious when the cops come along and lift them all. Like shooting idiots in a barrel.

    *i am entirely in favour of the legalisation of the reefer, and the free choice to smoke it when you please

    1. Tish Mahorey

      They’d look pretty stupid trying to arrest them all. And far too much paperwork for no result really.

    2. han solo's carbonite dream

      i’m in favour but free choice to smoke it when you please?
      should be banned in public….unless a designated zone or licenced cafe.

    Loved his book and he had great ideas. But he was a drug smuggler and helped killed 100’s if not 1000s, No not from the drugs in supplied but by making the people(some not very nice people) he bought it from very rich.

  3. Funster Fionnanánn

    Drugs kill.

    But he was a great laugh.

    And the money he paid? That ended up helping build schools you know.

    A great soul.

      Weed doesn’t kill though,in fairness.

      Drink kills but I’ll murder you and everyone you care about if you try and stop me!

    People smoking “spliffs” on a regular basis over the age of 17……Ah I’m not even going to get into it.
    Even using the word spliff…just hahaha!
    A group of high achieving champions of industry gathering outside leinster house today!!

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      I’d love to see them all gathered in the one place though, half-baked.
      Dispatch a snapper BS.

    2. MoyestWithExcitement

      Yes because vodka and beer are the drugs of choice for high achieving winners.

      1. Daddy Wilson

        Doesn’t need to be one or the other.
        Also, a gathering of people outside leinster House downing bottles of vodka would be equally clever.

        1. MoyestWithExcitement

          Relax fella. I was just pointing out your snobbery and oblivious nature. I’d say far more bums snd teens drink booze than smoke weed.

          1. MoyestWithExcitement

            Yeah, will you tell her I won’t be around tonight actually. Also, if you could do me a favour and just tell her I won’t be back at all actually, that’d be swell. I’m just not that into her. I would have loved to be your new daddy though.

          2. Clampers Outside!

            Daddy Wilson reminds me of a New Year party many moons ago. A teacher was there too, and went into a rage when he realised some of us had the good decency to smoke our doobies outside.

            He joined us, then lectured us all on smoking spliffs at a party he was attending.
            “I’m a teacher”, said the guy with a bottle of vodka in his hand, “you shouldn’t be smoking that, it’s illegal and irresponsible”.
            “Irresponsible” says I, “like the ten pints of Guinness and ten brandy chasers you had down the pub earlier? Regaling us with stories about how much you can drink? And you call us irresponsible? ….and here you are with a bottle of vodka… a bottle, you can’t even get a glass you’re so out of it”.

            That’s you Mr Wilson, or how I picture you.

          3. MoyestWithExcitement

            I was at a party years ago and this one asks me why I need the joint I was smoking to have fun while she held a can of cider. Some people just need to feel superior cause they do nothing with their lives they can be proud of.

          4. Daddy Wilson

            I was at a party once

            Anyway Clampers, you misunderstand. I highly doubt you’re an avid smoker these days. Much like myself. I used to smoke. Found it had an ill effect on my memory etc
            knocked it on the head. No issue with people smoking it. My issue is with the people who make it a lifestyle.
            Smoking the same as I drink? Fill your boots. Wearing your smoker status as badge for all to see? Grow up and turn off the Bob Marley records

          5. Clampers Outside!

            True, parading it like a badge is silly.

            But the guys outside Leinster Hse were looking to do two things, raise awareness of stupid laws, and a mark of respect to a man who campaigned against those laws. No need to have a go at them for that, even if the ‘bong’ thing sounds silly.

            Maybe you’re not as hyper-conservative as you come across Wilson… certainly wouldn’t have taken you to be a tooter, haha! I still toot regularly, almost nightly, btw.

          6. Daddy Wilson

            Ah to be fair, I’d have a blast once in a while and would have been known to have had a big box of it for occasional use that I’d have brought back from overseas.
            Not in a long time though.
            I’m far more liberal than i think I probably come across here.

    3. Daddy Wilson

      Hold on, it’s at 4:20?
      Okay, proving a lot of peoples’ point by being there at that time lads.

      1. Tish Mahorey

        “Okay, proving a lot of peoples’ point by being there at that time lads.”

        Ah poor old Wison, thinks everyone works 9 to 5.30 only. Doesn’t consider self employed who can wander around to wherever they want at any time or shift workers, part time workers, independently wealthy, TDs, primary school teachers, stay at home parents.

        1. Daddy Wilson

          HAhaha if you’re self employed and can “wander around” to anything you like, you’re either very very successful or not successful at all.

    4. Clampers Outside!

      People drinking “pints” on a regular basis over the age of 17……Ah I’m not even going to get into it.

    5. My Meat is Murder

      No more worthy of note than the high achievers inside it

      Ooh look I made a joke “high” achievers

  5. Owen

    Its angelic to think it will be a load of chilled stoner lads, a nice feel and feelin-the-love session. I do hope it is. Please someone take photos.

    In reality, I fear it will be a heap of Orts students from Trinners “living it lorge, loike” and a few lads smoking hash (30% peat, 30% plastic, 40% madness) who would probably be close by anyway, and a few old dudes looking like Willie Nelson, who thought it might be better.

    1. Daddy Wilson

      That’s it exactly!
      In your mind it’s an amazing marathon sex session with the woman of your dreams but in reality it’s a cry wank in your damp bedsit illuminated only by the sickly orange glow of the flickering street light accosting your window and the blueish white hiss of your gas powered camping stove cooking your tesco brand spaghetti hoops

  6. Tish Mahorey

    Daddy Wilson, back over to with you. There’s a thread about immigrants eating their pets there.

    1. Daddy Wilson

      Tish, Moyest, Mr T or whatever pseudo you are posting under, i’ve never been on
      It sounds great though
