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. The “limited use” means there’s a smaller list of approved uses, unlike states like California in which literally almost everything qualifies for medical marijuana, which isn’t a bad thing, but Florida… hmmm.

Florida woman arrested for shooting a missile into a car has the most Florida name ever

For a minute, never mind the charge of shooting a missile into a car. A missile doesn’t have to be a Minuteman or Patriot missile— it’s simply a launched rocket-shaped projectile. Let’s focus on the important part, that the woman who was arrested in Polk County, Florida has the most Florida name ever. Crystal Metheney. No, that’s not the name of a Breaking Bad themed My Little Pony, that’s her actual name. This is gonna be a good day.

This is the box of crazy: Found box contains one man’s drawings of a weird alien/angel encounter from 1977

"So a friend of mine found this box by the trash, it is full of wonderful, crazy illustrations. Clearly something happened to this guy that was very memorable. It measures roughly 29" by 38" and almost all the drawings are very large."

Half of the box just contains old letters, boring technical drawings and hand-drawn world maps. The other half is full of illustrations, sketches and description of one man’s bizarre encounter on night in Florida in 1977 with flying beast-serpent-angel alien creatures.

"I enjoyed most the desolate stretches of unpopulated islands where literally all I heard for hours was waves and birds," he said. "This is a way to bring those experiences to people who for whatever reason — health, money, whatever — will never be able to get here."
Matthews and Officer have seen dolphins frolicking, sea turtles, sting rays, even alligators. On a remote bird-sanctuary beach, a shore bird even dive-bombed the Google cameras.
Already, the duo has trekked past thousands of vacationers splashing in warm Gulf waters or relaxing on powdery white beaches in such destinations as Pensacola, Destin and Panama City. “I’ve had a couple of people offer me a beer. Unfortunately, I don’t take it because I’m kind of in the middle of a workout,” Officer said.

Pretty sure not even God is a fan of Florida

At the George Zimmerman trial, juror B37 “hates all media”, thinks Martin’s murder was “just something that happened” and called him “a colored boy”

Watching this bit of the jury selection process makes me cringe, because I’ve seen this in person and it’s pretty much par for the course for lawyers to spend hours and hours and hours weeding out anyone who shows the slightest hint of intelligence to try and pack the jury box with the dumbest people in the community. And this is what happens. How about lawyers get their picks, then each lawyer gets to drop one person… that’s it.

Also in Florida, a woman just got 20 years for firing warning shots to keep her abusive husband away from her

While one jury in Florida let George Zimmerman walk for shooting an unarmed teenager after Zimmerman got his ass kicked in a fight he started, another jury in Florida gave 31 year old Marissa Alexander 20 years for firing warning shots when Alexander’s abusive husband came after her with the expressed intent of trying to kill her. Yay justice.

And in amazingly embarrassing news, Florida accidentally banned computers

If you’re reading this in Florida right now, you’re committing a crime. In an attempt to crack down on slot machines and internet gambling, Florida legislators passed a bill to make internet cafes illegal. However, thanks to some poorly worded descriptions in the bill, they got more than they bargained for and have technically made any system of network of devices that can connect to the internet illegal. Not surprisingly, lawsuits are on their way.
