Rocky Mountain High High

January 21st, 2014 - 10:38 am

THIS is CNN:

Poor Randi Kaye. The CNN reporter was sent to Denver for a week as part of the network’s “Gone to Pot” series, and in one of her later segments investigated dispensary tours that are being compared to Napa Valley wine tastings.

Kaye followed around a 72-year-old woman named Barbara Harvey, who is a huge fan of marijuana, and joined Harvey on a day-long dispensary tour where she spent much of her time in a limo being surrounded by people smoking marijuana with the windows rolled up. The CNN journalist tells Anderson Cooper she accidentally got a contact high after being stuck in a limo with Harvey for so long, though Cooper believes this is her “career highlight.”

The real fun in the clip starts at about the 4:30 mark, when the canned reporting gives way to a live remote with Kaye.

"Not your stereotypical pot user"? At 72, she's only about 4 years outside of the "official" range for Boomers. And that range is awfully stretchy. That's pretty close to John Kerry, whose Vietnam posing was as stereotypical of Boomers as anything I've seen. It's the same as Joe Biden. It's LESS than Nancy Pelosi. It's a LOT less than Harry Reid, old mummy that he is. Basically, she falls squarely in the middle of the Lovecraftian nightmare that Washington has become due to the Lousiest Generation.

And... oh my G*d. Is her husband there wearing a Pink Floyd T-shirt? Yeah, I remember when all the hep cats were heading down to speak-easies to listen to some "Dark Side of the Moon". That's the first thing you think of when you think "WWII generation".

Oh, but of course, THAT'S just before you hear her talk. Her speech inflection is right out of freaking woodstock. Those overlengthened vowels are so stereotypical, it makes me want to cry.

Could someone look up the day that we decided Marijuana use wasn't something you'd associate with Boomers? Because up to this point I'd considered it the only plausible explanation for the bollixed political beliefs they generally hold/ foist on the nation. Or is it because the news organizations are now also all run by Boomers and they refuse to admit they're getting old?

Does the marijuana packaging have extensive cancer warnings? Is this type of smoking ok, but tobacco smoking is bad? It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Is the bud-tender's ski hat part of the uniform?

Yeah, a contact high is when you contact your supplier for some dope.
