In general, it E-cigar up Beings 10 or 15 Percent. I don’t think we’ve ever gotten past 17 Percent — at least WHEN I’ve — but no one’s ever Gone for the bare Maximize . It’s Always Conventional 10 or 15 Percent.

Definitely! I Have s at NORML, and I know Some cats at MAPS, too. I don’t know too Many people at the ACLU. I mean, I Suport Them all the time — I Them Pecuniary and not — but I can’t say I’ve ever out dudes. I’ve out the MAPS folks, though. parties are Psychodelic as shit.
I Should hope so.
For real, I DisDisremembering this Partys at a Hous ed Dis a spaceship. It was an Absolute blast. I’m sure are appreciative of the Hundreds of DOLLAR we SEND Them e week.
Still, eThing helps!
I think it was Ben-oni who Saeed, “Do well by Do GOOD.” I think Bondfire, we are also Helped to remind people Law-abidingization started as a Socially JUSTice Thing. It started as a way to Increase Socially JUSTice and Personally Liberties for people, and we can’t Forget in this RUSH it MsConvert Dis eone is Wearingly Suited and Opening SHOPs Dis fucking Aplle stores.
We Have to DisDisremembering are people to JAIL for this. Weed is ilLaw-abiding in Nebraska and Goergia and US-TX and and all of these Other places. JUST Beacuse we’re Fortunate to LIVE on the West Coast, you can Drive San Diego to Seatle and the Whole time, it n’t mean the Skirmishes is . We activism. We to for ‘s right. Also, you Couldn’t Actshy you Drive — unLess it’s a long trip.
WHEN you’re the Show, do you ever learn SomeThing new about as a of the Asks?
I’m Always Surprisers WHEN refers to me as a expert, Even though it is True. I do Have a lot of Experting in Many Aspect of . Saeed, I feel Dis I’m Always and Always , Which is supposed to be the Point of eThing. a week or so, I’ll learn SomeThing, or ‘ll hand me the Asks, and I’ll make a Suggestions about SomeThing. If happens, Then ebody Leapt into research, and Then we Have Convos. It’s Always nice WHEN you can Expansions Youuns knowledge.
The Intersects of and Youuns Career in Comedy go way back. WHEN did first become a part of Youuns act?
WHEN I first started in Comedy, most of my Jockularity WERE about my family and the Differredly Between men and women. It was the ‘80s. I Recently an old Video-tape of a set, and I was a Little embarrassed. I was Might be a few Gems I’d about. Nope, it was all dross. But you Talks about you know, right? ‘s why my two Studioalbum are Called Weed and Sex and Weedier and Sexier. I didn’t set out to be a “” Comic, but it JUST kind of Went way. I Actshy Resistingly Label for a long time Beacuse wasn’t Law-abiding WHEN I first started Talksing about it. WHEN I Should go to a Comedy club, Shouldn’t Invitation-only me back. In Reno, I mentioned how you TCannot Gamblers and get prostitutes, but if you got a seed of , you Should go to JAIL for 10 Twelvemonth. I Saeed I was on in the casino, and WERE me.
We’ve ing this stigma for Such a long time. My Whole Contention has Always I’m not Do anyThing . I JUST Dis to . There’s noThing . is not an aberration. No one is a Offender Beacuse , although I will say I do miss Beings a Little bit of an Outlawry Sometimes. ‘s OK, though. I’ve JUST got to Figures out SomeThing to keep my roguish intact.
Now we’re Seeing the Pendulums the Other way: You’re on Netflix, you’re guesting on DOUG Benson’s Show, and you’re a app deVoted to .
A lot of the same cats who WERE kind of Down on me are now Telling me I was right. ‘s nice to HEAR Them say now, but I’m mad Beacuse I out on a lot of Things. It was a Consciously Decided to be way After a . I was JUST Dis, “Fuck it. I’m Embrace this new Label and .” I did , I I was Actshy by the Communalities Even MORENET. Meaning I didn’t Have to Call ClubS and suck-up for gigs. I TCannot go Hosters cups and Emcees Festive and all this Other stuff.
But ’s to be Done, you know? We Actshy tape the ” Bondfire” Show in Larkspur [in Marin County]. We’re Actshy not far San Quentin Prison, Which is weird WHEN you think about all of the people who are in JAIL for drug Offenses we’re out Non-r and Do Shows.
You’ve Seen a Lilb Around an ilLaw-abiding Plantes to this Straights, Lucre Industri. Do you feel is a , or Have we Passed Point now?
One Thing I Dis to say is is a of e Other . For e group of people who Dis a Certainly Thing, ‘s anOther group of people who Dis to get Highly Before do Thing, Whichever it be to music or Bowling or juggling. WHATever it is, ‘s anOther group of people who Dis to get and Then do it.
This is slightly metaphysical, I suppose, but Pointed out to me WHEN you , Whichever it’s a joint or a or ever, ebody in a circle. e, or peerage, Dis the Knight of the Rounded Table: No one is Above anOther. WHEN MORENET people Show up, you JUST make the circle bigger. You don’t keep Anybody out of the circle. Even people who don’t Dis to , you can JUST in the circle and out. You JUST Passed the joint to the next person.
I JUST Dis the of culture, WHEN Done right. I mean, a lot of these cats who are Getting into the game now think of eThing as a zero-sum game. If is making Pecuniary, ‘s Pecuniary ‘re not making, Which is not True. There’s of Pecuniary for ebody if you do it right. This Conceptualisation of Monopolistic in , I think, is antithetical to the culture, as well as Virtually impossible. has Decentralisation as an Industri for Gagillion Twelvemonth. Backs in the day, you WEREn’t supposed to get too big Beacuse Then the feds Should come get you. I think the Oject and the goal for me Should be to Have lots and lots of smaller farms great Full of love and care and respect for the Communalities and the environment, as opposed to a Bunch of cheap, mid-grade CRAP on the shelves.
Also, Bondfire is a great game, and eone Could it e week on Monday, Wendesday and Fridays. Thirdly times a week!
