Kal Penn Obama Ad Parody Mocks President For Marijuana Policies

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, September, 6th 2012 by THCFinder
President Barack Obama's new ad featuring stoner duo Harold and Kumar drew accusations of hypocrisy on Tuesday from critics who note that the beloved potheads could easily be arrested under the White House's current drug policy. Now drug policy reformers are out with a parody ad that depicts what might actually happen if the president spontaneously dialed up a pair of marijuana users to ask for their support.
 
While the president's original ad was meant to promote the appearance at the Democratic National Convention of actor Kal Penn, a former White House staffer who plays the character of Kumar in the eponymous film series "Harold and Kumar," pot advocates saw an opportunity to hammer the president for his marijuana policy.
 
"Wow, hi, Mr. President," says the actor playing Harold in the parody ad. "I didn't think you'd call after you dismissed or mocked all of the questions about marijuana that I submitted on WhiteHouse.gov."
 
In the original ad, the comically zoned-out pair of stoners laugh at cartoons and eat junk food after the president asks if he can count on them.
 
In the parody, the pot user offers a more sobering response. "You're counting on marijuana users to fall for a lame political video designed to exploit us while your administration simultaneously supports arresting us and raiding our homes?"
 
As for actually speaking to Kumar, the president never gets that far. "Did you say you're looking for Kumar? Oh, he's gone. He was arrested, like the other 850,000 people who are arrested each year under your administration's policies. Maybe you can help him look for a house or a job when he gets out? Finding those things can be really hard when you're burdened with a drug conviction."
 
(The arrest figure is borne out by the FBI's 2010 Uniform Crime Report.)
 
The video, which ends with a scene from a violent police raid, was compiled by Shaleen Title, formerly a staffer for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, and Chris Wallis, an alum of Students For Sensible Drug Policy in Ohio.

L.A. City Councilman Says Dispensary Ban Enforcement Will Move Forward

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, September, 6th 2012 by THCFinder

Los Angeles City Coucilman José Huizar says in a new interview that city officials continue to move forward with plans to enforce the city’s medical marijuana dispensary ban, despite advocates recently turning in over 50,000 signatures for a ballot referendum to overturn the ban.

 

“When the 6th comes around,” Huizar said, “I don’t think people should expect a whole, big prohibitionist-style era. We go out there and close down dispensaries. The fact of the matter is, given the resources, we have to go in phases, and it’ll be a strategic approach. The Council’s a policymaker—the legislature—and now it’s up to the administrative arm of the city to enforce.

 

“Now, we understand we have this submission of signatures by [medical marijuana] advocates. If the signatures qualify, by our city charter, that means that our ‘gentle ban’ is put on hold until the voters decide. But the intention of the LAPD and our administrative arm of our city, from what I understand, is to continue with some enforcement actions. And they will do it under state law or our ‘sunset clause’ from our previous ordinance [under which medical marijuana dispensaries are not recognized as legitimate business entities]. Right now we have no ordinance, and according to state law all sales of marijuana are illegal. And I would say that a majority of these dispensaries are conducting sales of marijuana.

 

“Absent a ban that has been put on hold, it’s our city attorney’s position that the sunset clause goes into effect, and that only provides for three or fewer people to collectively grown their own [marijuana].

 

“So, whether we have the ban or not, the LAPD will continue with enforcement actions.”

 

By any means, Councilman Huizar plans on shutting down the medical marijuana industry in L.A.
