Canadian rock band, Nickleback have long become the butt of everyone’s jokes. One quick search of the internet and

you’ll find dozens of memes like “Friends don’t let friends listen to Nickleback.” “What’s 45 cents? a Fifty Cent concert

featuring Nickleback”

Nickelback

There’s many theories why that is: Creed broke up, they’re Canadian, etc. but now their infamy

has reached new levels. Two 20 something’s were detained by the police in Idaho after they were overhead at a gas station discussing the band.

The cops thought they said “nicklebag” as in a $5 amount of marijuana which is now perfectly legal just across the state line in Washington but apparently

still a heinous crime in Idaho but the two swear they said “Nickleback” in reference to the music blasting out of a passing car. Certainly a far worse crime in

some hipper regions of the country but still technically not illegal. They cops let them go. Luckily they had videotaped the incident and now the bumbling

cops look like fools and the bullies that they are. Good thing the two weren’t discussing Matchbox 20.

The Pope Smokes Dope

The Pope Smokes Dope is a catchy number by David Peel and the Lower Eastside. Peel was befriended by John Lennon in the early seventies

when he was playing with his ragtag hippie band in New York’s Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village. This led to Lennon producing

The Pope Smokes Dope  album which was later banned in many countries and now is sought after by collectors worldwide.

Now the actual Pope, the dude in the Vatican that wears the funny looking hat, Pope Francis, does not smoke dope. While he’s been very

progressive in his views on many social issues, like the rights of Gays, the role of women in the clergy, etc. he’s completely against the

legalization of marijuana.  Recently as a speaker at the International Drug Enforcement Conference in Rome, he said he was opposed

to the legalization of drugs—including marijuana saying “with evil there can be no yielding or compromise.”

That’s when I thought, why was I taking this guy serious in the first place? I mean if all the fucking pedophile priests would smoke a joint and

get laid once in awhile, maybe they wouldn’t want to fuck little boys in the ass. Jesus H. Christ, who the does the Pope think made pot anyway?

 It says in the Bible, ” Jah made the herb for man ” I’m paraphrasing here but that’s the gist. Plus there’s plenty if historical evidence that

marijuana was used in the early traditions of the Church. In Exodus, Moses and his priests used holy ointment and burned “incense”, made

from kaneh-bosm, i.e. cannabis  in a portable ‘tent of meeting’, the famous Tent of the Tabernacle. They were swinging big scepters of it in

Solomon’s Temple. ( I guess this was before the invention of the bong, that came later) but I digress. How it later came to be demonized by

virtually all of Christianity, ( but not all: Rastafarians, Zion Coptics, Unitarians ) is mystifying.
