Hurricane Barbara moves over Mexico

Hurricane Barbara crashed ashore Wednesday afternoon along Mexico's southern Pacific coast.

Barely a hurricane, Barbara made landfall in the state of Chiapas, about 20 miles west of Tonala, the U.S.-based National Hurricane Center said.

Barbara had sustained winds of 75 mph, and was moving north-northeast at 9 mph. It was located about 80 miles east of Salina Cruz, in the state of Oaxaca, according to the hurricane center's last advisory.

    FYI, ive been told the best weed grown is in Viet Nam. Dont know if its true or not but they have some pretty strange names on the different varietys. The one that sticks most in my mind is "monkey paw".

      It's still not legal in Canada. Simple possession has been decriminalized. In other words, you pay a fine but do not get a criminal record. But it is still criminal to have above a certain amount or to sell the stuff. The prison sentences for trafficking are still quite severe.

      Maybe I'm nit picking, but I just don't want Americans coming up here thinking it's OK if they smoke up in a park or something, then get arrested.

    If the whole world smoked a joint at the same time, There would be world peace for at least two hours.
    Followed by a global food shortage.

    Good lookin out @ BOMBO. Personally speaking i gave it up decades ago but i would rather see ppl smoke than drink. And lol @ bobcat, too true! And if everyone that smoked played "johnny potseed" they would have to make it legal because it would be everywhere!
