Booze: good for your heart and your memory!

Of course, moderation is key, but some good news for those ninjas that enjoy a brewskie or two after work:

"In the long run, a drink or two a day may be good for the brain. Researchers found that moderate amounts of alcohol - amounts equivalent to a couple of drinks a day for a human - improved the memories of laboratory rats. "

"There is some evidence suggesting that mild to moderate alcohol consumption can protect against diseases like Alzheimer’s in humans," said During. "But it’s not apparent how this happens."

Circle of Protection: Afghani! Troops Lack Mana to Burn 10ft Tall Plants

afghani defense 3

"Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I’d say ‘That damn marijuana’."

The Canadians have recognized the evils of battling the evil herb as viewed pictures from this personal web-journal.

The few, the proud, the blazed as sh!t. It can’t be that much different than Canada is for real, though. This just goes to show that where there’s ninjas…

"We tried burning them with white phosphorous — it didn’t work. We tried burning them with diesel — it didn’t work. The plants are so full of water right now … that we simply couldn’t burn them," he said.

This should be telling you something guys… they just ain’t ready to be picked yet.

afghani defense 1

I’m reminded of a John Holt song. Why do I feel like every time I plant a seed, they say, "kill it before it grow"?…. so I shot I shot I shot.

"The challenge is that marijuana plants absorb energy, heat very readily. It’s very difficult to penetrate with thermal devices. … And as a result you really have to be careful that the Taliban don’t dodge in and out of those marijuana forests," he said in a speech in Ottawa, Canada.

And who’da thunk the Taliban would ever reach ninja status? Thanks to Jay for sending this in!

Having trouble quitting? Nicotine levels are on the rise…

Further proof that Joe Camel and the Marlboro Man don’t deserve ninja status:

A new report by the Massachusetts Department of Health details how the level of nicotine found in US cigarettes has risen about 10 percent in the past six years, making it hard to quit and easier to get hooked.AA The study shows a steady climb in the amount of nicotine delivered to the lungs of smokers regardless of brand, with overall nicotine yields increasing by about 10 percent. Massachusetts is one of three U.S. states to require tobacco companies to submit information about nicotine and the only state with data going back to 1998.

An excerpt: "The study found the three most popular cigarette brands with young smokers - Marlboro, Newport and Camel - delivered significantly more nicotine than they did years ago. Nicotine in Kool, a popular menthol brand, rose 20 percent. More than two-thirds of black smokers use menthol brands."

NYTimes reporter checking out the coffeeshop scene in Holland - my ninja!

NYTimes columnist John Tierney, one of the paper’s more conservative writers on the Op-Ed page, penned a piece this weekend criticizing America’s policy towards marijuana and extolling the benefits of the drug laws in the Netherlands.AA For those who have read a bit on the folly of drug prohibition, or have just thought about the problem, the contents of the article will not be earth-shattering, although it does contain some interesting anectdotes.AA Nonetheless, it is refreshing to see such views in the mainstream press (which of course will inevitably lead to a flurry of comments from Fox "News" et al. that the NY Times is a radical left-wing newspaper, which is obviously true since the New York Times feverishly repeated all of the lies of the Bush administration before the War in Iraq, and delayed revealing the unconstitutional NSA spying program until after the 2004 presidential election…)

Not surprisingly, Mr. Tierney is mum as to whether or not he sampled any of the botanicals from the Green House or the other shops he visited.AA At least he didn’t try to claim he only stopped in at Barney’s for the food (make sure to check it out, both for grub and ganj, next time you are in A-Dam)

Time To Go Freegan


Dumpster divers rejoice beware!AA Somebody is putting trippies in choco bars in Amsterdam and discarding them in trash cans near the airport!

THE HAGUE (AFP) - Police at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport has released a warning for hallucinogenic dark chocolate bars after a homeless man ate one and confused their uniforms with wedding dresses.

"He ate some and we found him hallucinating", mixing up police uniforms with wedding dresses, police spokesman Rob Stenacker told AFP on Thursday.

Police later found more chocolate bars on the ground and in airport dustbins.

"They were very likely bought in the Netherlands and abandoned at the airport by travellers who didn’t dare to take them on board (the plane)," Stenacker said.

Police warned the public to be careful if they found any abandoned dark chocolate: "Don’t eat it, you don’t know what’s in it. Imagine what would happen if a child ate it."

Imagine what would happen? He’d trip balls, that’s what.

Ninja Warlords Unchecked Gain Sophistication

A submarine which police say may have been used for cocaine smuggling has been found floating off Spain’s north-western coast.

It is reported to be about 10m (33ft) long, made by amateurs from basic materials, not by professionals.

While submarines are not known to have been used for drug trafficking in Spain, they have been used for this purpose in Colombia.

Map of Spain

"It could take drugs from a ship in the ocean and take them to the coast without being seen," Mr Gonzalez said.

"There has been nothing like this before in Spain. It is an example of how narco-traffickers are advancing in technology."

Lacking clientele? It’s all about craigslist, my ninjas!

Despite recent posts detailing the need to keep your illegal activities on the DL on the world wide web, contradictory evidence does exist:

The Seattle times is reporting that Craigslist has become a haven for small-scale ganja dealers, and that the authorities are essentially turning a blind eye. The article details how these entrepreneurs scour the site for people seeking the collie weed, and then email them and set up the transaction. As if this wasn’t sketchy enough for you, these distributors even place ads offering their merchandise in exchange for sex, and if you are a male customer who refers a female friend for such an encounter, the ad explains you are entitlted to a discount! The best part though is the DEA response:
‘Jeff Eig, spokesman for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s Seattle office, said the amounts of illicit drugs sold via online transactions are generally so small that his agency hasn’t specifically gone after craigslist users dealing dope.’

Yeah that’s right, Tommy Chong got arrested for his dealings, nor can you sell any of those Jerome Baker Designs "flower vases" anymore online without facing a DEA raid, but as long as you deal in small enough quantities, craigslist is your own personal dutch red-light district. Newbs, you now have a connect…
Ninjas, if you decide to meet up with one of these, I’d recommend wearing your gi and bringing a throwing star or two.
