The Real Dangers

With everything there are both benefits and risks. This is true for medical marijuana. Thankfully we have fine professionals at the DEA there to set us straight when our rose-colored glasses make everything too pink.
"I deal in facts. I deal in science," said special agent Matt Fairbanks, who's been working in the state for a decade. He is member of the "marijuana eradication" team in Utah. Some of his colleagues in Georgia recently achieved notoriety by raiding a retiree's garden and seizing a number of okra plants.

Fairbanks spoke of his time eliminating back-country marijuana grows in the Utah mountains, specifically the environmental costs associated with large-scale weed cultivation on public land: "Personally, I have seen entire mountainsides subjected to pesticides, harmful chemicals, deforestation and erosion," he said. "The ramifications to the flora, the animal life, the contaminated water, are still unknown."

Fairbanks said that at some illegal marijuana grow sites he saw "rabbits that had cultivated a taste for the marijuana. ..." He continued: "One of them refused to leave us, and we took all the marijuana around him, but his natural instincts to run were somehow gone."
Of course legal grow operations don't need to hide in environmentally sensitive areas. But we should not underestimate the destructive power of rouge rabbits. Observe this documentary footage obtained at great personal risk by that dauntless reporter Bill O'Reilly!


  1. Okra, stoned bunnies, America is under threat I tell you!

  2. GW, any fool can see that rabbit in the video is on meth, not weed.

    Maybe, but I'd go with bath salts with all that face chewing.

    Wabbits are wonderful creatures. Imagine a bunny wabbitt stops at a cool stream and wiggles it's bunny wabbitt pink nose to take a lil dwink and den after sipping some cool stream wa wa goes over and munches on some marijuana plant and BAM KILLER BUNNY DUDE. Not afraid of no one, and like hey, wanna party and get some pizza and babes?

    If you or a loved one have been threatened by a Bunny Rabbit who has lost his or her fear of humans, than the lawyers at Aronfeld PA want to help. We will sue the marijuana growers responsible for the transformation of Bugs Bunny and because they deal in cash, you may be entitled to a CASH settlement. Let me say that again. A CASH SETTLEMENT.
    Call us now at 1-888-bunny-hi or 1-888-weed-bun. Operators standing by.

    (the hiring of a lawyer to sue for wacked out pot-head bunny rabbits is an important decision and you should ask for our written qualifications to sue marijuana dealers for getting bunny rabbits high. Not licensed to practice law in all 50 states. Some restrictions may apply.)

  5. The man is a genius. Priceless.

  6. Douche-ay, 3:20!

  7. Climb aboard SW, you are welcome to do a guest post!

  8. I second the motion!

  9. GW- I like your new profile pic. Uncle Arthur!! -- Love watching him on Bewitched re-runs. So funny!

  10. Got an idea for a new TV show. A mild mannered and under achieving insurance defense lawyer gets a diagnosis of athletes's foot and psoriasis and gradually goes off the deep end. He quits his firm and becomes an evil vicious and highly successful plaintiff's lawyer who does anything and everything to win,

    Working title: Breaking Spencer.

    Run with it.

  11. Paul Lynde was hysterical. You couldn't talk about gay people on 1960s television but props to the producers of Bewitched for putting them out there.

    From one powerful warlock to another, Uncle Arthur RESPECT!

  12. I had my suspicions about Felix Unger too.

  13. Gomer was hot for Sergeant Carter!

  14. Felix was he first metro sexual. He was straight, not that there is anything wrong with that.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
