  1. I thought pot farmers listened to the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band.

    I’m not sure how tortillas and Tecate distinguish them from other campers. Everyone packs tortillas in, and most campers are slightly beer-snobby, and don’t want to drink Bud or Corona.

  2. Hazme el pinche favor

    its whole wheat wraps(tortillas)
    german polka(spanish music)

    next thing you know they are gonna say that smokey the bear is a paisa moreno de provincia.

    Like 99% of the pot heads i ever encountered,met or dated they were gringos,gabachos.

    -Italian white collar from Long Beach(huge bong and smoked it in his penthouse bathroom)<—dated him.

    -Irish actor/waiter from Los Feliz( chased the brownies with lots of wine) <—pot brownies.

    -German writer/producer Hollywood<—(breakfast,lunch and dinner) medicinal use and kinky.

    We working class or poor latinos are being used as scape goats.
    We are more likely to have 1 joint and have to share it with 4 other people, chilling in the backyard of the chubby chick from Bell at 2am 🙂

    *if i am confronted i will say..”i have no recollection”

  3. Sad to say I’m not surprised. I hope they get raked across the coals. I’d like to hear something from the president on this, too, considering it’s a federal agency.

  4. The US Forest Service has always been a redneck reactionary agency that is part of the Dept of Agriculture.
    This is a serious and telling act of discrimination and ethnic profiling. If Obama has any huevos there would be heads rolling and the US Forest Service would cease to be part of the D of A and become part of the Dept of the Interior headed by a Latino from Colorado,Ken Salazar, former Senator and now running the Dept of the Interior.
    It Makes more sense anyway.

  5. Now I know why I hadn’t seen Smokey in a while. He was busy busting tortilla eating, chela drinking, chufa smoking osos in the red (literally) state.

    USA! USA! USA! USA! I love being an American. With all it’s double standards, hypocrisy, and miseducated masses there is never a boring moment. I wouldn’t want to live any place else. Ay güey!

  6. @loveandhate – so true. All the really big weed smokers I’ve met have been middle-class white people. This handful of people smoke so much, or at such an old age, I can’t believe it.

    It’s nuts, too, that they have a lot more political power than most people, but don’t do work to legalize weed and other drugs. I’m not saying none do – I know about NORML – but even NORML isn’t staffed by the kind of people I’m talking about.

    At the same time, when cops want to frame up an undocumented person, or harass a gangster, the cops bring out the big bag of weed.

    Then, also, there’s all the stereotypes, like Cheech and Chong, and Snoop Dogg : the dumb doper of color. (Which is incorrect with those performers, because these three guys seem to be really smart.) I’m not sure where Harold and Kumar fit into this, but it’s an improvement of sorts. Where are the media images of the white, baby boomer, 60 year old marijuana smokers with their “prescriptions”?

    This shit is racism.

    On the one side, you have the respectable people, and they’re getting high on pot.

    On the other side, you have minorities, depicted as stupid and intoxicated, and some sell pot, and get arrested for pot. The neighbors of the weed dealers need to deal with the disruption of customers on their street.

  7. Now we are going to need serial numbers on all packages of tortillas, corn and flour!!, and a fifteen day waiting period!!
    But any gavachos I catch listening to Guns n Roses and eating slim jims are fair game ok??
