Sir! Charlie Company Reports Being Extremely Baked, Sir!

Brings new meaning to the phrase “war on drugs”: Troops battle 10-foot marijuana plants.

“We tried burning them with white phosphorous — it didn’t work. We tried burning them with diesel — it didn’t work. The plants are so full of water right now … that we simply couldn’t burn them,” [Canadian Army General Rick Hillier] said.

Even successful incineration had its drawbacks.

“A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those (forests) did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action,” Hillier said dryly.

One soldier told him later: “Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I’d say ‘That damn marijuana’.”

    Awww yeah! I can think of a solution to that problem and it involves a large scale drying operation and large quantity of rolling paper.

    Perhaps those ads after 9/11 suggesting that my pot smoking was contributing to terrorism were wrong. I, for one, am willing to take one for the team and smoke a spliff to help win the war on terror. I say that it’s every American’s patriotic duty take up arms…erm, bongs, against terror. Let’s give those terrorists a double barreled hit of the dankity-dank for the Gipper.

    You’re either with us or you’re against us.
