Come fly with me

Oh, dude, it's just so cool. You light up and take a deep toke, and the next thing you know, you are just, man, oh, man, flying:

DENVER (MyFOXColorado.com) - One pro-marijuana group is calling on the government to allow marijuana in smoking lounges at airports across the country.

Cigarette smoking at Denver International Airport and other airports across the country is restricted to smoking lounges.

[. . .]

Denver voters approved a measure that made possession of one ounce or less of marijuana in the city legal. That happened almost three years ago. It was the first city in the nation to pass such a law.

I am being only slightly sarcastic. I don't mind flying in general -- even the landings are OK. But the takeoffs scare the bejesus out of me. It takes me halfway through the flight to get my heart out of my throat.Maybe getting a slight buzz on would be the way to go.

Wait a second, there. There are still airports with "lounges," in which people can "smoke"? Who knew?

Would certainly make for a peaceful flight

Smokers have to pay a fee for the privilege to use those 'Smoker's Lounges" in the airport.

We have truly made smokers into second-class citizens who pay and pay and pay for the right to use a legal product.

To add to the irony, the good people in the beautiful city of Denver are going to allow lawbreaking pot-smokers a pass that grants the right to possess and use illegal drugs.
