The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board wants you to think not just about Mama today but getting Mama toasted. The board is airing radio ads promoting the virtues of alcohol consumption on Mother’s Day — not exactly what those Mothers at MADD had in mind.
The Board particularly recommends the “Mother’s Kiss” is equal parts strawberry kiwi vodka and lemonade. So much better than that wet smacker Mama gives you.
The Board notes that Pinnacle vodka, which comes in a variety of flavors, is on sale for $9.99: “That’s $4 savings,” the ad states. “With deals like this, you can afford to treat all the mothers in your life this year!”

I’ll drink to that! 🙂
Marijuana has medical value for treating both PTSD (and other anxiety disorders) and nausea although if you’d bothered to read further into the “Moms4marijuana” website, you’d have seen they are talking about it’s value in treating postpartum depression, not PTSD. That is one of the many reasons for legalizing it.
Alcohol, aside from from anti-oxidants found in red wine, has no medical benefit whatsoever. It’s also 100 times more toxic than THC based on lethal dosages. You can drink yourself to death quite easily. There are no reported cases of death by THC overdose in all of recorded medical history whereas I personally know dead people who got that way directly from the booze bottle.
So how about not making false equivalencies to prompt knee jerk reactions and bolster your bias.
In a society that so many markers of how the ethics presences of our community is being sold off to profits, it is fitting that we should be getting mom toasted on her special day. It won’t be long before promotions for the medical marijuana in Colorado will be suggesting that you should help relieve mom’s PTSD or nausea with joint to accompany “Mother’s Kiss”
Or how to make more Mothers. But then I am a member of Damm. Dad Against Mad Mothers.
We had an early Mother’s Day get together because of travel plans. I read this from my book “Quotable Women”:
“There’s a time when you have to explain to your children why they’re born, and it’s a marvelous thing if you know the reason by then.” (Hazel Scott, American Musician).
