World's Largest Joint Determined to be Smoked in LA
Stock up on Doritos before New Year's, LA, because there's a man who's planning on rolling and smoking a three foot jay on December 31, which means there are going to be some people with the world's largest case of munchies soon afterwards.
Brett Stone, the brains behind DaBronx News, a website that claims to contain "All the 'dope' on marijuana in the news", recently heard about a group of Dutch pot smokers who had to nix their plans of rolling a joint filled with 17 ounces of weed, because such a spliff would be illegal in Amsterdam.
Because Stone is a card-carrying medical marijuana patient here in California, he realized that he could legally roll and smoke a joint that large right here in LA. And that's just what he plans on doing.
"I thought the world's largest joint would have been a lot larger," Stone was quoted as saying in the Daily Breeze, adding that it would be legal since it would be toked in a place designated for such things. "It will be smoked in a local medical marijuana collective here in L.A."
Contrary to the belief that stoners are lazy under-achievers, Stone already has plans to break the record that he hopes to set. Come Super Bowl Sunday the 48-year-old hopes to roll an even larger joint, and to get sponsorship from a company which will provide the extraordinary rolling paper that will hold all that kush.
We are told that one ounce of marijuana can fit in a large freezer-sized Ziploc baggie.
Stone will not be smoking the joint alone, he will be joined by others who are using the ancient herb medicinally and even invites local dignitaries as long as they have their paperwork.
"The mayor and police chief would be most welcome if they have a doctor's note to consume cannabis," he said.
