The View from the Firehouse

The one thing that is universal in fire stations the world round, is usually late at night there is a deck of cards, a pot of coffee and two or three fire fighters sitting around solving the worlds problems. It’s just a shame that no one listens to us.

Pot Smoking Safe?

I'm sure many people have seen the ad on TV with two boys smoking pot, when one pulls out a gun a points it at his friend. Then the boy pulls the trigger and the gun goes off and the ad than fades to black.

Well I have also seen a spoof of this, can't remeber if it was an ad on TV or some silly movie. But the jest of the spoof was that this could never happen. Well guess what It has happened.

Police say Cerda, Gonzalez and several other teenagers were smoking marijuana about 4:45 p.m. in a home on Jeannie Court in the Penland Mobile Home Park directly across the street from the Northway Mall. They were passing around several guns when Cerda put a handgun to Gonzalez's head and pulled the trigger, Markiewicz said. Read full artice here(may or may not have to register)

I'm not trying to make light of this. It is indeed tragic that one young man no longer walks this earth. It just that when I heard about this, I was struck by the sadly ironic fact that this happened while they were doing what they were doing what the were doing.
