We ran a story last week about a pharmacy overseas that planned to offer “high quality cannabis for pain relief at affordable prices.” The headline we used was: “I’m here for my prescription and 6,000 cookies” An unhappy reader named Justin wrote to say our headline “paints pot smoker as lazy bludgers with the munchies.”

It turns out, some pot smokers may be very energetic. When the city of Amsterdam began posting colorful street signs banning pot smoking in certain parts of town, people started stealing them. Now the city is offering the signs for sale and says there has been considerable interest. The price is $108 each, and they don’t come with cookies.
