So THAT is why they call it Wacky Weed!

Stacy McCain offers up an answer to the long puzzling question what is up with Gary Busey?

 

Dr. Samuel T. Wilkinson, a physician in residence at the Yale University department of Psychiatry, writes in the Wall Street Journal: “There is a significant and consistent relationship between marijuana use and the development of schizophrenia and related disorders.”

You can read the whole thing — that is, you could read the whole thing, if you weren’t a raving psycho who’s smoked enough weed to fry your brain. Of course, correlation is not causation, and there is the chicken-and-egg problem: Which came first, the crazy or the weed?

We could hypothesize that mentally unstable people are more likely to do a lot of potentially dangerous things — smoke marijuana, vote Democrat, date tattooed women — without any one of these factors being the causeof their insanity. Advocates of the legalization of marijuana could therefore say, “Yeah, crazy people smoke a lot of weed, but . . . Hey, man, stop being such a buzzkill, OK?”

Now you might be wondering what any of this has to do with Gary Busey. If you are, then you might need to step away from the  bong, as Stacy explains

Occupy Leader Arrested On Weapons And Drug Charges, and for looking too much like MSNBS douchebag Toure, but mostly for the drugs and weapons

Via Charlotte Observer:

A man known for his involvement in the Occupy Charlotte movement was arrested Sunday and charged with resisting an officer, carrying a concealed gun and misdemeanor possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.

Gifford Cordova, 33, of Lake Wylie, was arrested along with Alexandra Elizabeth Evans, 19, police said. They were arrested following a 911 call reporting a suspicious vehicle on Garrison Road, west of where West Boulevard intersects Interstate 485.

Police say they found three guns in the car with Cordova — a handgun, rifle and shotgun.

Evans was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and paraphernalia and misdemeanor possession of pyrotechnics.

Cordova is an entertainer and performer with two children. He participated in Occupy sites in Atlanta, Charlotte and Washington, D.C.

Cordova was among those who expressed disappointment in December after four men, including two Occupy Charlotte members, burned U.S. flags at the Charlotte tent site. The four were charged with careless use of a fire. Cordova said their actions reflected poorly on the movement.

Man what a tough break, and just so you can compare, here is Toure, and Cordova.
