Depot Town’s Strain of the Day

When I friended Ypsi’s “Depot Town” on Facebook a few days ago, I wasn’t aware that I was, in fact, friending Depot Town’s new medical marijuana dispensary. So, now, I guess, I’m going to be receiving “strain of the day” updates every morning.


For the record, I don’t give a shit whether or not people smoke pot. I did, for a short while, when I was in college. I gave it up, though, when I realized that I wasn’t getting anything accomplished. I’m fine, however, if other people want to do it, as it means less competition for me in the real world.

For those who are interested, Lemon Kush, according to, is “bud you can smoke and not feel awkward talking to a client, your mum or even a hooker. Mainly because you don’t feel much at all..”

So, if that sounds good to you, get your ass down to Depot Town.

And, speaking of hookers, I can’t wait until they get on Facebook, so we can start hearing about their daily specials.

    It sounds like it would make you fat.

    Judging from the two kids in Insane Clown Posse t-shirts that I saw going into one of Ypsi’s dispensaries yesterday, I’d say, yes, this stuff does make one fat.

    The important thing, I think, though, is that these angry-looking kids with their really low jeans and backward baseball caps can now get the medicine that they so desperately need.

    I need to add a “you kids, get off my lawn” tag.

    Wouldn’t it be a lot easier to get marijuana legalized if everyone stopped giving it product names that a six year old marketing executive would give to new breakfast cereals?

    I think it should be legalized for _everyone_, but really, this is your ‘take this natural medicine seriously’ strategy? When’s the last time you saw a hemorrhoid cream called “Grape Ape” or “Purple x Cheese?”

    The DejaVu store definitely needs to do a Butt Plug of the Day.

    While I would certainly want credit for the idea, I’d prefer they not to call it Mark Maynard’s Butt Plug of the Day.

    Hey Mark, speaking of butts…I have a great story. I was in the bathroom at the Corner and heard someone in the stalls telling her friend about your website. I piped up, “Oh hey, I post there too!” The woman said, “Me too!” And I said, “I’m TeacherPatti!” and she said, “I’m WetDolphinMissile!” At some point, we were peeing at the same time in the two stalls and gushing over the site!! And we met in person after we finished peeing. It is truly a beautiful story and made my day:)

    If you can draw that out as a one-panel cartoon, I’d be happy to post it on the site, Patti. I love the idea of women discussing my site while on the toilet. I may only be #2 on the Current’s list of best blogs, but at least I’ve got that.

    I know this is a fun sort of post, but let’s not forget that it is medical marijuana law, not a let’s get high law.
    These laws are an important step in allowing pro cannabis doctors and researchers to finally openly prescribe and look for funding for real research of this plant. I know that many people get the card just to get high, but many use it to now legally treat a medical condition. The friends I know that have gotten the card use it for menopause symptoms, chronic back pain, chronic diarrhea, and depression. Each on of those friends’ regular MD’s told them that they wouldn’t write the prescription because they are worried about how the law retaliation and privacy, so they gave them referrals to MD’s that do.
    Anyway, synthetic drugs aren’t the answer, we have to look more towards new discoveries in natural healing and flora.
    So anyway just I wish you would have put just a little seriousness about this issue in your original post.
    Never know, maybe there is a cure for OCD out there somewhere in a funny named strain of pot.

    Mark, I will do that! I cannot draw much (and by “much”, I mean “at all”) but I will sketch something out during lunch tomorrow.

    Seriously, it was an awesome moment…I had dj’d at the Halcyon Sundaze and was already in a good mood. The best part was that pause where she goes, “I have to tell you who I am….” and for one beautiful moment I thought she was going to say “EOS”….!!! :)

    Uncool Kid, I’ve known folks who have used marijuana medicinally to help combat the effects of cancer and AIDS, and the pharmaceuticals prescribed to treat them. I know there are legitimate medical benefits to marijuana, and I didn’t mean to imply otherwise in my post. With that said, though, I think a huge number of people who have their medical marijuana cards are probably just doing it to get high.

    And I’m looking forward to your drawing, Patti.

    Mark, May I add to your post where you said……
    “With that said, though, I think a huge number of people who have their medical marijuana cards are probably just doing it to get high.”

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    The problem with Ypsi is that Everything Smells Like Marijuana.

    EOS?? really?…this is exactly why I am a wet dophin..It was cool…we were bemoaning the loss of the grafitti in the unicorn and ninja potties…it had gotten kind of grungie so I guess they decided to replace the stalls with basic black and no grafitti is showing…and thus we discovered this common link…6 degrees of sepreation and all that. Plus she was a good dj

    Please explain. Did you each bring a laptop into the bathroom? Smartphones?

    Anonymatt, well, we didn’t have the site in front of us :) WDM said something about the site, which I overheard while I was waiting in line. I busted out, “OMG, sorry to interrupt but I love that site and post on it!” Still in the stall, WDM said, “I love it too….”(and said something else but I forget what). I said, “I’m TeacherPatti” and WDM said something about wanting to meet me. Her friend exited her stall and I said “Yes, totally, but let me pee first.” We were both in the stalls and going whilst sharing our mutual love for the site. Once we both got out to wash our hands, we met face to face :)

    Mark, how can I get the picture to you????

    Patti, you can either scan it and email it to me, or leave it at a bar in Ypsi. It’ll eventually find its way to me.

  22. Posted June 13, 2011 at 10:16 pm | Permalink

    Yup, Dragon, I’m well aware of the hypocrisy. Thanks for pointing it out to everyone else, though. I appreciate it.

    Mark, I will leave it at a bar in Ypsi where I will be on Thursday to celebrate the last day of school :)

    Missing the hypocrisy that Dragon pointed out…sorry….

    I think you may be playing right into Mark’s hands. He seems like the kind of guy who might have a fetish about women discussing him while wiping their bottoms.

    Looks like someone agrees with you, Mark.

  27. Legalization of Marijuana
    Posted June 18, 2011 at 7:45 pm | Permalink

    I bet we see marijuana legalized in 5 years or less.

  28. Posted July 1, 2011 at 12:00 pm | Permalink

    I have to agree with the idea behind Mark’s post. I don’t do it, nor am I interested, nor do I care if anyone else does, but this kind of crap makes a travesty of those trying to argue for the medicinal purposes of the drug. The idea of friends I know having cards who have absolutely zero valid medical reason for it is wrong. If you want to change the law, change it. Don’t put people in this odd semi-legal place, and risk the possibility of people not having medical access because you’re selling to people with no real legitimate medical need.

    Perhaps we should be looking at selling this medicine in an actual pharmacy, so we can have a medical professional justify the need for a controlled substance rather than some dudes who opened up a business?

    (I know I will catch crap from this from my friends, but I don’t care — it’s the truth. If you want to change the law, get it changed, don’t try to make an end-around by claiming medicinal purposes for those who need it. Can I get the same doctor who gave you a card to write me an Rx for Morphine? Maybe for those heart pills I think I need? Or a CT scan?)

    While I agree that most kids don’t really need it, please don’t judge based on looks. My nephew looks like one of those kids but he has suffered from migraine’s since he was a kid. He was also on meds for depression. The medical marijuana allowed him to get off of depression meds, which are quite toxic when taken for an extended time. It also helps with his migraine’s. My husband uses it and he doesn’t look sick either. Before this he was on antidepressants, couldn’t get his blood sugar under control, and had allergies so bad we had to hire a service to cut our lawn. None of these were the reason he got his card, they are extra benefits. He is off of antidepressants, the doctor can’t explain why his sugar is normal for the first time in 10 years, and he cuts the grass every week. So please remember people don’t have to look sick to be sick.
