Guns & Intoxicants Do Not Go Together Well

From the April 21, 2013 Detroit Free Press:
DENVER — Gunfire erupted at an annual U.S. marijuana celebration, injuring two people and scattering a crowd of thousands after they had just marked the first 4/20 counterculture holiday since Colorado legalized marijuana.

The man and woman who were shot were expected to survive, and police were looking for one or two suspects, said Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson. Police asked festival attendees for possible photo or video of the shootings, and they had no immediate motive.
For the same reason that guns and alcohol don't go together, power tools and intoxicants don't go together, cars and intoxicants don't go together, ladders and intoxicants don't go together, etc.  I fear that significant segments of America are prepared to accept the unfortunate consequences of adding another legal intoxicant to what is already a serious problem with alcohol.


  1. As a friend of mine once said: "Gunpowder and Alcohol do not mix. Well, they do, but they taste terrible."

  2. Yes, but internets and intoxicants DO go together.
