It wasn't as funny until people started buying it without checking the source lmao.gif

The Swedish minister of Justice posted a link on her facebook page and got even more ridiculed when she backtracked and said she knew it was satire all along, she just doesn't think anybody should make fun of drug use. 37.gif

Quote:It would seem that The Daily Currant, a satire and fiction-based website much like The Onion, decided to run a story in the spirit of the 1930s ode to marijuana paranoia "Reefer Madness," wherein they exaggerated the effects of pot smoking. The newspaper they cited, the Rocky Mountain News, was real at one time but shut down five years ago. The doctors and institutions quoted and used for verisimilitude were all fakes. Even the beer company, MolsonCoors, isn't a real company, although Coors Brewing Company, which operates out of Golden, Colo., is a division of the Molson Coors (notice the space) Brewing Company of Canada.

On Monday, Facebook users noted that the Moderate Party politician in Sweden had shared the article on her Facebook page. She had added the comment "Stupid and sad. My first submitted proposal in the youth wing was called "Crush drugs!". In this matter, I have not changed my judgment at all."

Quote:She [Beatrice Ask, Justice Minister of Sweden] was criticized for passing on the fabricated news on the popular social media network. Her press secretary later told the Aftonbladet newspaper that the minister had all the time been aware that the article was satirical.

But... gaah.gif
Like K once commented... "It's like being governed by a bunch of Exeters" So true.

Have a look at some of these comments....

Quote:So there were 37 deaths in Colorado due to marijuana overdose. Soooo everyone that says marijuana doesn't do anything bad can shut up now.

And this is the first runner up to The Ignorance Pulitzer Prize, right behind the Swedish minister of Justice, is this guy...



lmao2.gif This stuff is priceless, and once again I say I'm ashamed to be part of the same species.
Talk about a bunch of uninformed sumbitches. gaah.gif The Swedish minister of Justice will never live this down.
What a moron.

The Bible says that God will send false prophets to tell them (the religious) what they want to hear. Conservatism is certainly a religion. This report is what they desperately wanted to be true. You see that a lot.

The report was a fake but they believed and posted it because it was what they wanted to be true, what they wanted to hear.

They (the Swede wasn't the only one) wanted 37 people to die of marijuana use on the first day.

They wanted to be able to say "Colorado legalized marijuana use. First day, 37 deaths. Gee aren't you liberals smart?"

They wanted to be able to say "Soooo everyone that says marijuana doesn't do anything bad can shut up now."

They want people that disagree with them to just shut up. They don't want to be bothered with facts. They want the worst to happen so they can be right.

The first time you, Softy, heard this report you knew it was a fake instantly. So did I.

The problem is YOU and I want to be called Conservatives but we really aren't. The word has changed definition. Ronald Reagan was a Conservative and is now a Liberal.

Ronald Reagan understood the issues, had respect for people that disagreed with him, and would never have been fooled by this article. The people we call Conservatives today don't understand the issues, don't have respect for much and act like Conservatism is an uncompromising religion.

You are not that way, that's why I say YOU are not a conservative. You are an independent with conservative views.

Its called:

scha·den·freu·de (shädn-froid)
n.
Pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others

These people couldn't type fast enough, couldn't blog fast enough on UTUBE. Their hearts were full of joy as they reported what they thought was the failure of liberal actions, the deaths of 37 people.

I'll save you the time, Liberals are just as bad at the fringes as Conservatives. They practice an uncompromising religion. If the article had said "Marijuana Saves Colorado!" We would have a bunch of twits and blogs reading "See! See! Shut up you Conservatives!"

I refuse to believe that WE are them.

The problem is, they DID say it. It was one of the most self serving displays of ignorance coupled with "I told you so" that I've ever seen.
They were so blinded by all these wonderful "deaths" they couldn't wait to start gloating. Anyone with any sense knows there has never been an MJ related death, that's fact and is not going to change.
You can't say that about alcohol, tobacco or even aspirin.

Hi Wayne5,

Good write,,,yeah pretty independent,,,only kinda sided with

the Republicans after Jimminey Carter wrecked the economy,,,

sure screwed up my plans,,,got to pay 15 percent on my first

house,,,and the price of the house had gone up,,,so saw what

the tax and spend,,,and appeasement of the party ideals,,,

and trying to buy the favor and the votes of who ever can do,,,

do agree with the Republicans either,,,they just don't screw up

the economy as quickly,,,generally speaking,,,and Reagan or

those he listened to did do better in this regard,,,but that is where

it ends,,,more for doing what is smart,,,or what I think is smart,,,

whoever does it,,,but this isn't about me,,,and yeah,,,they heard/saw

what they wanted to be true,,,and jumped on it,,,too quick,,,

still,,,I have to wonder,,,about Colorado,,,certainly over time

all the users will be known,,,and that information can be added to

the rest,,,think they have file on each and everyone of us???...

yeah,,,couldn't wait to start gloating,,,

like the Onion,,,the one that wrote it was for sillyness,,,

however,,,the effect on some was to end up making themselves look stupid,,,

this could be used as an interesting technique in the future,,,

for those wise enough...

It should be a wake up call to those who are dumb enough to debate with no facts, but some are obviously quite passionate about their ignorance, and cherish their propaganda.

I consider Jimmy Carter the worst president in my life time, Softy.
He has done a lot of good things as an ex president. I did benefit from him being president.
My wife was pregnant and The Carter admin pushed to get insurance companies to cover pregnancy. It was just in time for us to not be burdened by a large bill. He was so depressing. He turned off the Christmas lights to save energy. The economy was down and we needed someone to cheer us up and cheer us on. All he did was frown. Reagen's "New morning in America" came just in time. Cristy is the closest thing to a Reagen we got.
