Woke Up This Morning: Normal

(That title's a bit obscure, but it cracks me up every time...)

The following article is so full of puns you'd think it were written by Carrie Bradshaw. But considering the Ace Cowboy has probably spent the equivalent of the GDP of Laos on the delicious doje, I felt the retirement of the nation's top pro-marijuana lobbyist warrants a mention in these here pages...

Exhale, Stage Left
At 61, Longtime Marijuana Lobby Leader Keith Stroup Is Finally Leaving the Joint

"...There was a time, back in the '70s, when Keith Stroup was about as close to a rock star as Washington lobbyists ever get.

He hung out with the Allman Brothers and Jimmy Buffett. He partied with Willie Nelson and presidential son Chip Carter. He had sex in the fabled grotto at the Playboy mansion, where Hugh Hefner hosted a NORML fundraiser.

The man they called 'Mr. Marijuana' grew up on a farm in southern Illinois. His mother was a devout Baptist. His father was a building contractor and Republican Party activist who stashed a bottle of whiskey under the front seat of his Lincoln Continental so he could take a snort when his wife wasn't looking."
