From my home state of Florida:
A python prohibition, bong ban, horse thievery crackdown and no-limit poker games are included in some of about 140 new laws going on the books Thursday in Florida along with the state’s new $70.4 billion budget.
Three senseless laws in one sentence. That’s quite an accomplishment. The bong ban especially. I mean, clearly, the way to stop people from smoking the scooby doo is to ban one particular device used to do it. Because making something illegal is the way to make it disappear.
Plus, with the oil on the beaches and the state’s shitty economy and the fact that we’re basically spread-eagled in the Caribbean just asking for a series of hurricanes to run a subtropical train on us, the number one priority right now should be spending more money to crack down on fucking horse theft.
Horse theft! That’s where police attention needs to be? That’s why I have to pay 7% more on everything I purchase in this god-damned state?
And furthermore, what exactly is the justification for the python ban?
“We don’t need any more snakes, especially ones that can grow over 20 feet long, weigh hundreds of pounds and eat almost anything they encounter,” said the law’s sponsor, Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood.
Ahh. So they’ve seen me getting out of the shower.
