Pot legalization leads to riots in Washington and Colorado

Pictured above is a scene from the devastating destruction resulting from marijuana legalization.

Pictured above is a scene from the devastating destruction resulting from marijuana legalization.

Just eight months after Washington and Colorado voted to legalize marijuana, the states are already beginning to feel the detrimental haze set in as their economies are grinding to a halt.

Recent reports indicate homelessness has skyrocketed as pot heads lay in street gutters shooting up weed.

Police have had their hands full with rioters as people storm the streets, trashing store fronts and overturning cars as they demand free pot be provided as part of the food-stamp program.

So far the only thing keeping the drug from flooding the streets are the tough regulations being imposed by the states and cities which have ensured that only a select few can grow and sell the plant. This has also led to high prices, ensuring that even fewer people are able to consume cannabis.

Vehicular crashes are up 369 percent as clouds of smoke drift out of vehicles and block visibility on the major high ways. There have even been reports of a man who ran over a young girl on a bicycle as he was leaving the drive through of a fast food restaurant.

Worker productivity is at an all time low as people spend up to five hours of their work day taking smoke breaks while the disability rolls have swelled from workplace accidents.

As a sign of things to come, these states are already seeing vast amounts of school children overdosing on heroin due to the message that marijuana legalization has sent.

Critics fear that in time, consuming marijuana will be as socially acceptable as alcohol and that society will be oblivious to the damage done by it.

    What a load of BS. Shooting up pot? How does this garbage even pass for journalism. I live in Colorado. This is a pure work of fiction.

      HAHAHA this is a satire site.

    Even IF you didn’t know that the Tribune Herald was a satirical site, the “shooting up pot” line should tip anyone off that this article is a joke.

    FSM, you realize this is a satire site… Right?

    • Juan August 3, 2013 at 10:55 am Reply

      No, if this article or any other comes up in a google search, there is no clear indication that you are looking at a satire site. Also, there are many idiots who believe or otherwise perpetuate information like this. So it is hard to assume that this is satire even though you can’t take it serious.

      A simple header on the website: “the worlds best dumb reporting” would clear this up.

        Uhhhhh, Juan, this is the disclaimer printed on the page…. “Tribune Herald is for satirical purposes only.” If a quick read of the other articles didn’t clue you, then I think you have little or no sense of humor…;-R

    After I read this, I had to be sure to scroll down for the comments, because I knew that some people would not “get it.” HAHA – jokes on you!

    Just wondering how do you shoot up pot. Amlso technically it is a food item not cooked. However my tax money should not be used on shit I gotta pay 60 a bag for.

    LOL! It is satire. Anyone who takes it seriously needs their head examined.

      its does more to set marajuana reform back than it does to satirize it.

    Hahaha. Shooting up pot and riots. A pothead would barely get off the couch to get a bag of chips let alone riot… Sooo funny.

    • brett September 8, 2013 at 11:47 am Reply

      I wouldn’t agree with that. I smoke pot everyday. I work 12 hours a day and I am a full time student online. Getting off the couch to get some chips isn’t a problem.

    This is a complete load of BS…I am in Colorado and was a Cop, we are having NONE of these problems, someone should do their homework before writing such crap, it is not even for sale at the retail level….not until 1-1-14…no riots in Colorado…and I can promise you there is no shooting up either…

    This is written to poke fun of all of those that believe the propaganda that has built up over the years to demonize marijuana, and keep it illegal.

    Our states are grinding to a halt in the economy because of SEQUESTRATION – NOT MARIJUANA!! Sequestration in our area is furloughing over 10,000 workers and affecting thousands of families. You want to do some good with your rag – tell the truth. People who aren’t affected by these furloughs go about their business as if nothing is happening. Try taking over $200 a pay period out of your family’s money available for paying the budget and see how you feel. We make our budgets work – unlike politicians who are spending someone else’s money!!!

    Just one question, of everyone who read this and thought it was real….how many of you were seriously high as fuck when you read it?

    I live in Seattle and I can tell you that this much is true…. they gather outside our houses and our workplaces…. waiting for us to come out just so that they can steal what little money we have and get even more pot….. my wife left me so she could go smoke pot all day long…. some say she was last seen killing someone for their stash…. I think they’re coming…. I hear them scratching the door…. oh please help me, they’re trying to come in….. someone please do something! They’re in! We should have never legalized it!!

    Reblogged this on Smuck Talk and commented:
    This is great. Kids and their hip-hop, ruining this country I tell ya! RUINING IT!
    The best part is the moron that commented to the story all pissed off.
    It’s called satire my friend, and it’s a beautiful thing.

    The problem with this is that there are WAY TOO MANY idiots that will believe this crap, and they are in positions of authority.

    that is the thing, whoever wrote this is going to make alot of idiots believe it and be against it; that is bad news for everybody….

  24. Juan August 3, 2013 at 10:51 am Reply

    After reading and pondering the content of this article, the only logical conclusion is it must be the work of a troll.

    If you are in some strange capacity being serious, then you need to provide objective facts not just something that fits your “anti-pot” view. Also, where are your anti-alcohol, anti-cigarettes, anti-caffeine, anti-sugar, and anti- processed foods articles???

      Uhhhhh, Juan.. it is a freaking joke dude. Chill the frack out… See it says so on the page…. “Tribune Herald is for satirical purposes only.”

    I would only like to say this is an incredibly irresponsible arcticle. Though for some its obvious sarcasm I fear their is still a large group of dimly educated. Fools that could actually believe it.

    • Abby Normal November 14, 2013 at 1:37 am Reply

      Oh, come on now…like pot heads are really capable of overturning cars… heh heh

  26. Luke McEvoy September 28, 2013 at 3:27 pm Reply

    my biggest fear and i think its a fear shared by many, that the near legalazation of marijuana will lead to some terrfying resurgence of flares, big hair and prog rock.

  27. Abby Normal November 14, 2013 at 1:34 am Reply

    This article is hilarious!!! I didn’t realize it was a satirical site til I read “shooting up weed.”
    Brilliant George M. Spooner. Brilliant.

    I tend not to comment, however I read a bunch of comments here Pot
    legalization leads to riots in Washington
    and Colorado | Tribune Herald. I do have a few questions for
    you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it seem like some of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting on other online sites, I
    would like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you post a list of the complete urls of all your public sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

    All of these friends are so many ways, theimpact on self-esteem is almost a
    reverse of the brain where MRI shows deactivation during acupuncture.
    The Yoga Sutra focuses on maintaining the vascular system’s unity for optimum
    welfare and appearance. And any folk remedy la mortgage
    adopted as a psychotherapist when someone has a placebo or not available to receive prophylactic antibiotics to no avail.
