Marijuana is Illegal

You know, you try to tell people that marijuana is not legal in Amsterdam, but they never listen. Did I not write it on my first entry? I'm pretty sure I did. But, no, people say – the movies say it's fine. And people smoke it in the coffee shops all the time. What could possibly go wrong?

Well the thing is – the police will let things go if it's good for the economy, good for the people, and safe. And hidden. That's the important part. There's a reason that they're called coffee shops and not marijuana dens.

But, last night as I was walking home, I saw two people in the streets smoking up. This was unfortunate because I was walking in the safe wake of two police officers. These two offices, having the same field of vision of myself, also saw the two tokers.

The police had a nice close talk with these two gentlemen, reminding them that there was laws in this city. They also asked who sold it to them, where they got it. I guess one answered correctly, because he was sent on his way, looking sheepishly over his shoulder at his buddy who was being led away in handcuffs.

I can only assume he answered wrong.

Remember kids: Marijuana, only legal in some South American counties, and India – provided you buy it legally, and use it for religious purposes.
