Florida legalizes medical marijuana. This should end hilariously.

Yesterday, Florida governor Rick Scott signed a bill legalized limited used of medical marijuana for epileptic seizures and other disorders.

Vice interviews members of The Scurvy Crew, one of the biggest drug dealers on Silk Road

But when the FBI seized the original Silk Road on the 1st of October, 2013 and arrested the alleged kingpin – 29-year-old Ross Ulbricht – the online drugs empire began to capsize.

So much of it, that the government encourages people to smoke it every day because they’ve got so much of it, and it’s pretty much the only thing that’s keeping the nation afloat at all.
