So it was a slow day for me, and with my current cold keeping me under the weather, I signed up for a reddit account.
Whilst finding my feet I learned a few interesting things.
For instance did you know that the name Marijuana was intended to be a racial slur for cannabis, to discourage white people using the drug back in the 1900s?
Check out this article which, at 1am, I really dont want to spend a load of time paraphrasing.
Today I learned.......
Thank you *STUPID* italian tourists! Alternativ bar gets raided due to big mouths
I've been abent this week due to a nice trip up to Berlin to come and see the Venus festival. During my stay here I have been talking to some friends and comparing notes on the Berlin smoking VS the Prague smoking scene, with some surprising answers!
Firstly it seems that Berlin gets a webehigh rating of 4, same as Prague. Which is interesting as Prague is often lauded as the 'Amsterdam of the East' but Berlin rarely gets a mention. So how do they really compare?
Both cities have remarkably similar events; whilst Berlin has the 'Henfparade or Marijuana March, Czech of course has the Cannafest and other liberalization movements going on in parallel.
From a possession point of view; even 15 grams here seems to be tolerated, 5 more than we are allowed to have before getting hauled in. But really who can smoke a 10 bag anyway.....15 is just greedy :)
WARNING- Czech police doing the rounds of the 'famous' bars with drug searches
So the czechsmokers group moved the usual Sunday night smokers meeting to Bukowskis bar. A group of 7 attended, and conversation was great until the barman came over and told us to stop smoking weed.
As you can imagine, that put a bit of a damper on a group of people who met with the specific purpose of smoking!
Diet cokes, beers and cocktails were quickly downed.
I give this bar a 0/5 for the following reasons-
.33cl beers instead of .50, for 24kc, which is almost DOUBLE the price of most bars. its 14kc for a 'small' in our local. But then its well known that hipsters can't drink like real men.
Disinterested Hipster/Grunge bar staff serving arrogant hipsters overprice beer.
