The world is moving towards progressive cannabis reform as states are legalizing both recreational and medicinal pot, which has delighted the Internet. Twitter, specifically, is lawless—people just comment on social issues and hypocrisy without real fear of prosecution. In fact, the police are even getting in on the action! Here are some of the best tweets on the Internet that perfectly sum up our nation’s cannabis legalization.
1. Nothing Short of Surreal
Ten years ago, the idea that cannabis would be entirely legal in five states was laughable. This guy got the first packet of cannabis sold in the state of Washington and summed it up perfectly. Surreal.
2. At Least the Social Media Cops Are Funny
The police have their funny moments between shooting dogs and eating donuts. This isn’t actually how drug deals go down boys, so why do you even need a Twitter account?
3. Even Republicans are Starting to Get It!
Obama inspired young adults to pay attention to politics and vote for change. But if this John McCain quote had come out in 2008, he would have stolen a good percentage of that vote.
4. Sore Losers
Just because no one wants to smoke your poisoned-filled sticks anymore, doesn’t mean they get to act all pouty and send lobbyists to Washington to prevent cannabis reform. What are you gonna say? Cannabis isn’t good for you? Thanks, Camel, we’ll take that into consideration.
I think for most people the surprise here is that California does not already have legal weed.
6. Good Guy Seattle PD
Seattle Police Department hand out Doritos with informational stickers for cannabis users concerning the new laws. Portland Police decides to poke fun at their innovative ways of “spreading the word.”
With all the legalization in Oregon and Washington, the cops don’t have anything to do now but write tweets to each other. Which we love. Because it’s hilarious.
7. “I’m Low”
Can you imagine that until recently these ladies could have ended up in prison?
8. “You Did What, Mom?”
Everyone is jumping on the legalization bandwagon, even @wizkheylifa’s mom. Don’t worry though, legalizing weed is still cool despite your mom also wanting to do it.
Slightly laughable, but no one should be left out of the edible cannabis world. With legalization comes inclusiveness. We are all one!
10. If Anyone Should Be Arrested for Dealing, It’s This Guy
Selling oregano to freshmen, oldest trick in the book. With legalized weed idiots like this, we might as well go back to giving wedgies and swirlies.
11. The Biggest Threat to America? Idiots
What’s more dangerous than an idiot? An idiot with a platform. Seth Rogen sets Nancy Grace straight in the most eloquent way after she spews anti-pot propaganda via Twitter.
