Ultra 2013, Day One: The 15 Photo Highlights, From Marijuana Boobs to Human Bananas

Photo by George Martinez
Ultra Music Festival is a weird and wonderful place, where strange and spectacular creatures roam free and freaky -- humping, fist-pumping, and just generally upending the natural order of shit.

Take this human banana. A total anomaly of evolution. He's about 100 times bigger than the average banana. He speaks two languages. And he's delicious. Plus, like most of the fruit to be found at Ultra, you could try to peel and eat him. But he licks back.

Still, that's only a sneak peak of the otherworldy flora and fauna to be found at UMF. There are famous DJs whose arms are forever locked in an upright position. And otherwise normal ladies with marijuana leaves growing out of their boobs where the nipples should be.

Now discover the Ultra ecosystem. Check the cut for a 20-photo recap of day one of weekend one at Ultra Music Festival 2013.

The U.S. comprises 5 percent of the world's population yet uses 60 percent of the world's drugs. The prohibition of these drugs has been waged for approx. 70 years and has cost at least $3 trillion dollars.

Prohibition has cruelly ruined the lives of millions of peaceful and productive citizens while bankrolling the most evil people on the planet. Prohibition has stagnated the normal economy while allowing criminal enterprises to control an untaxed and thriving underground economy worth over 300,000 million dollars. By it's emphasis on the eradication of marijuana/hemp we have also been denied the most workable and logical solutions to a number of growing problems, be they medicinal, industrial, chemical, or commercial.

According to the CATO Institute, ending prohibition would save an annual $41 billion of expenditure while generating an estimated $46 billion in tax revenues.


Thanks to Prohibition, we now have a far higher percentage of our own citizens locked in cages than any other nation on the whole planet. Apart from the fact that these extra prisoners are not contributing economically to society, it also costs 50,000 dollars per annum to incarcerate them. Additionally, their families often go on government assistance, leaving the average tax payer to pick up the bill. Their kids may also be taken into care or raised by foster parents—again with our money. Now add to all this: the court costs, jail costs, and the salaries of all those people that have to deal with the enforcement of prohibition, like police officers, judges and public defenders—and you'll start to get a fair idea of why "Black Thursday" (October 24, 1929) happened during the period of another of our great experiments: Alcohol Prohibition (1919-1933)

During alcohol prohibition, all profits went to enrich criminals and corrupt politicians. Young men died every day on inner-city streets while battling over turf. A fortune was wasted on enforcement that could have gone on education, etc. On top of the budget-busting prosecution and incarceration costs, billions in taxes were lost. Finally, the economy collapsed. Sound familiar?
