Stupid fuckin lawmakers! People pay power bill, not the state. Make outdoor legal if you're gonna bitch about god damn power. Otherwise shut the fuck up. Ooohhh, but the people will bitch about the smell. Well I took a shit next to you in the bathroom stall and that smelled far worse then the weed in the backyard and no one complained about the shit smell, so shut the fuck up about weed smell in the backyard.
