Marijuana Super Bowl?

Not really: Marijuana is still banned by the NFL
This is one of the Super Bowl dumber memes out there. While certainly plenty of fans in Colorado and Washington will be getting legally baked on Super Bowl Sunday February 2 (as many do illegally in other states), I do not see the NFL lightening up on its policies anytime soon.  The official drugs of the NFL remains beer and money.

The bigger issue for the Super Bowl is can the Seahawks stop the Broncos (you have to favor Denver given how Peyton Manning has been playing).  Because I do not anticipate Peyton Manning making the same mistakes and turning over the football the way Colin Kaepernick did yesterday.  Russell Wilson does not want to end up like Tom Brady or Colin Kaepernick in two weeks...

Okay this is pretty funny:

4/20 Day in Colorado and Washington State

Weed legalized in Colorado and Washington: The history of 4/20...

The truth is, marijuana probably isn't going to make you kill people. Most likely isn't going to fund terrorists, but pot makes you feel fine with being bored and it's when you're bored that you should be learning a new skill or some new science or being creative. If you smoke pot you may grow up to find out that you're not good at anything.

Washington State lights up...what will the federal government do?

Marijuana possession became legal today in Washington State.

The Seattle Police gave this statement:
Does this mean you should flagrantly roll up a mega-spliff and light up in the middle of the street? No. If you’re smoking pot in public, officers will be giving helpful reminders to folks about the rules and regulations under I-502 (like not smoking pot in public). But the police department believes that, under state law, you may responsibly get baked, order some pizzas and enjoy a Lord of the Rings marathon in the privacy of your own home, if you want to.
This is an interesting test of federalism.  Whether you agree with the law or not (and it did pass with Washington State voters), will the Federal Government respect the law in Washington or try to impose its own will?

Update:  Will the Obama administration respect the voters of Washington and Colorado?  While Barack "Chumba gang" Obama loved smoking marijuana, we know he hates the 10th Amendment.

h/t to The Agitator on the SPD statement!
Obama:  No change on the war on drugs, so the Feds can and will still come after you...

Con:  PJ Tatler
Pro:  The Agitator (also noting the MSM is more statist than leftist, although I would argue they are the same)
Will Obama harsh Colorado and Washington's marijuana legalization?

Friday Night Flashbacks: Cheech and Chong Up In Smoke with special guest Barack Obama!

Barack Obama:  "I highly recommend this movie! "
Although if the U.S. Government catches you with dope you are going to jail.  
Penn Jillette calls Barack Obama on it  (NSFW language warning)...

It is beyond hypocrisy and Penn Jillette is spot on.

Update:  Instapundit on what is the sound of David Axelrod's weekend getting wrecked...

Growing up Obama: You were punished if you wasted any precious marijuana smoke...

"Without frugality none can be rich, and with it very few would be poor." --Samuel Johnson
JWF has the "dope" on this:
“As a member of the Choom Gang, Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends. The first was called ‘TA,’ short for ‘total absorption.’ To place this in the physical and political context of another young man who would grow up to be president, TA was the antithesis of Bill Clinton’s claim that as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled,” writes Maraniss, author of a biography of the 42 nd president
“When you were with Barry and his pals, if you exhaled precious pakalolo (Hawaiian slang from marijuana, meaning “numbing tobacco”) instead of absorbing it fully into your lungs, you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around. “‘Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated,’ explained one member of the Choom Gang, Tom Topolinski, the Chinese-looking kid with a Polish name who answered to Topo.” 
Obama also made popular a pot-smoking practice that the future president and his pals called “roof hits.” When they smoked in the car, they rolled up the windows, and “when the pot was gone, they tilted their heads back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling,” Maraniss writes.
I only wish Barack Obama was as careful with our precious tax dollars as he was with his "precious pakalolo!"

Now this is an insight into Barack's character:  He bogarted the joints and managed to take extra hits!
