So How Do You Explain The Way Legal Oregon Weed Navigated The Legal System?
As a sixty year old baby boomer I like high age limits high for alcohol, weed, and tobacco.
You could raise them even higher and who’d complain? Just as long as I’m not too young.
Dangers to youth are no joking matter. From my own back story.
During a family trip to El Paso-Juarez, also known as Juarez-El Paso, I wandered off and bought a switch blade knife. What twelve year old doesn’t need a blade?
My mom decided for me. I didn’t see my Mexican sticker until I was thirty years old. She was on the safe side. The first thing I did was cut myself.
While there’s no legal age limit for owning a Mexican switch blade, I wasn’t competent at any age.
Social substance carries some of the same danger.
We’ve seen the affect of alcohol, weed, and tobacco on youth. Alcohol gets you even before you’re born, starting you out with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
FAS is the most severe type of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, and is a life-long condition.
Babies with FAS:
- Can have abnormal facial features
- Often grow more slowly than other babies
- Can have central nervous system problems
- Can have mental disabilities
Oregon Football Stepped On Their Duck. Now What? Watching the Ducks fly south at Autzen was a shocker that’s settling in slowly. That it was the worst defeat since the 1977 season was an unwanted reminder of dark Duck days. As a UofO student in 1977 high scores for the other team didn’t feel as […]
Watching the New York Jets and Indy Colts on Monday Night Football, one guided by a Harvard guy the other by a Stanford guy. Smart guys from smart schools playing a little football. What are they thinking? Ryan Fitzpatrick and Andrew Luck have got to know about CTE. They probably heard about it in college. […]
One observation claims that athletes want to be actors, actors want to be athletes, and everybody wants to be a rock star. What do rock stars want to be? After seeing a rock show with Foo Fighters headlining, maybe the greatest rock band working on the world stage, rock stars apparently want to be coaches. […]
Only one group gets to knock the defending national champion in big school college football. Alabama stays down after the Ohio State Buckeyes rolled them in last year’s semi-final at the New Orleans Super Dome. Florida State, the defending champ in 2014, got run out of the Rose Bowl. No word from them. That leaves […]
The Only Rule For Joining The 500 Club Is Benching Five Hundred Pounds. I’ve seen it done on television and youtube, never in person. Until last week when a man loaded up the bench bar and repped over 500 lbs with no spotter. If you’re like me, the only way you’re benching 500 is pushing […]
When The Pope Visited Philadelphia In The Shadow Of Rocky. Picture yourself in the land of our forefathers, walking on ground won by American blood. It’s the same American blood flowing through every American. That’s Philadelphia during the Revolutionary War and every war since. Two hundred years later Philadelphia was the site of President Ford’s […]
One part of weird Portland, the Keep Portland Weird part, is SantaCon near a TriMet bus stop. If you’re a fan of SantaCon and like dressing up in Santa gear and bar crawling Portland, then you’ve seen this. If you’ve never dressed been a Santa, this is your chance.

Public Transportation In Portland, The TriMet Bus Stop, And People. A man walks up to a trimet bus stop. A couple are arguing. The man ignores them. The lady seems agitated. The other man pushes in on her. Here’s what you do: Check your position. You want to be able to step away without the […]
It’s Not Easy But You Will Win. Foo Fighters Fight For You. What’s the usual concert experience? Buy a ticket, show up, sit down, go home. Maybe raise a smart phone, flick a bic. Then there’s the concert up the Columbia at The Gorge in George, Washington. It’s a road trip no matter where you […]
The new pedestrian bridge brings new views of Portland. The view of the freeway looking south. To find it from I-5 north, take the Ross Island Bridge exit and snake around. Park your car before you make the right turn to the Ross Island ramp and you can’t miss it. […]
