I must say I'm pleasantly surprised that SLOG readers have answered the poll correclty so far: Pot will be found IN ALL OF THOSE PLACES!!! It's EVERYWHERE! Why, just last night I was shocked -- shocked! -- to find some growing on my balcony!

It is bad for the environment to grow it in parks and wild places. We need to reform drug laws so it can be grown in safe places.

Dominic, this is the funniest post I've ever seen by you -- I emailed it to a bunch of people. Funny!

I voted to put the fun in the Fun Forest!

Jeezis! Take that last one off there ("Joni Balter's Asscrack) - WTF did she do to you? This is exhibit A: Why the Stranger and its "reporters" will never be taken seriously by the public and especially REAL JOURNALISTS. Can you get any lower than you already are?

The Vineyards!?!?! Jeezuz, think of the children.

I hear they grow pot in meth labs now. (Or maybe it's meth in pot fields. One or the other, I'm sure.)

Well, it does account for some of the odd tasting notes in last years cabernets.

Tom Carr grows magic mushrooms in his bike shorts, Dom.

Everyone knows that.

It LOOKS like it's growing in her asscrack, but that's just the leaves. Everybody knows pot grows in the va-jay-jay, along with the sweet potato.

One has to love Dominic Holden.

I voted for dude ranches, 'cause they're old timey.

I think the answer is obvious: The Fun Forest. I mean, the word "Fun" is in the goddamn title! What more do you need?

@4 for the win.

Seriously, Tom Carr is the choice.

The conscientious grower never uses an ass for a planter...although there would be plenty of fertilizer there to be used.

Fnarf @8: Coffee. My mouth. Gag reflex. Said coffee dribbling down my chin. Much appreciated, sir.

They aren't growing in WINE vineyards. Not that the Times would care to make that fact get in the way of a headline.

Concord grapes = juice and jam. Juice & Jam = time to wash your face and hands!

It's the sweet potato that gets you, am I right?

Posted by Fnarf | August 22, 2008 1:59 PM

Thanks, fnarf.

I now have disturbing visions of Joni Balter's yam-can to scrub from my brain.

As a practical matter, pot likes lots of sun to grow. So a vineyard is perfect; plenty of fertilizer and irrigation already there, and nothing to block the sun and shade the plants. So this should be no surprise to the Seattle Times, or anyone else. Duh.

An apple orchard is less desirable. The trees shade the pot plants, which would make them grow slower. And the orchard provides no disguise from public view.

Bowling alleys might not be a bad option. They seem to be closing left and right lately. With some grow lights, they have a huge amount of space, and few windows for the cops to see in.

Realistically, I'm sure there is already pot growing in places in the Olympic National Park.

It should be illegal to irrigate a vineyard.

uh, one of John McCain's many houses?

No one reads the Stranger's election coverage.

Someone needs to let the governor know before she drops by the Stranger's offices for another endorsement interview.

I thought it was watercress all over my teeth.

I'm actually kinda tempted now to scatter pot seeds in the Olympic Sculpture Park. The only problem is, I don't have any.

@4: So why was there a picture of the Guv yukking it up with Dan Savage on the Times' election night photo slide show? Just sayin...

Posted by Joni's VJJ | August 22, 2008 3:48 PM

Has The Times checked Mr. Blethen's back yard lately? They might be SURPRISED at what they find growing there.
