-- This guy is 98 years old. Does he look 98 to you? Looks 78 to me.
-- Quick, name a 98-year-old coke, heroin, meth, tobacco, or alcohol addict.
-- Yeah, yeah, George Burns lived to be 100 and drank and smoked his whole life. So let’s legalize the other thing you can do and still live to be 100.
-- When we allow 98-year-olds to drive on our freeways, is a joint really impairing them any more than they already are? I would pick any 30-year-old daily toker stoned to the gills ripping oil hits off the dashboard before I’d pick a sober 98-year-old to drive me around town.
-- That’s a joke. Don’t smoke and drive impaired. At any age.
-- This guy actually started smoking weed when it wasn’t federally illegal.
-- One year later, Samuel Caldwell was the first federal marijuana prisoner, doing four years hard labor at Leavenworth for two joints in his pocket.
-- If I live as long as this guy it will be the year 2066. I’m hoping for the tricentennial in 2076, just to see if this country makes it that far.
