Just as pot smokers in Colorado and Washington were dusting off their bongs to celebrate their states’ recent legalisation of recreational marijuana use, it appears there is a catch. And a big one.
Fine print on Tuesday’s ballot papers specified that Cheerios – for years the munchie food of choice for stoners – will be banned, leaving thousands of pot users with a stark choice: quit smoking or go hungry.
Dan Furnando from Seattle said he typically went through ten or eleven boxes of the sugary breakfast cereal a week. He doesn’t think Coco Pops will fill the void. “This is so f*cked up man,” he said.
Sneaky Republicans are being blamed for the manoeuvre, apparently inserting the fine print on the ballots while everyone else was sitting in a corner staring at the grooves in a potato chip.
