Joe Rogan
In case you're unfamiliar with "The Joe Rogan Experience" -- the two-ish hour, every-so-often podcast -- the premise is fairly simple.

Take Joe Rogan -- the comedian, Ultimate Fighting Championship color commentator, former "Fear Factor" host, "The Man Show" and  "NewsRadio" co-star -- add a friend or two and some weed, and let the ranting ensue.

In an episode a week ago, alongside producer Brian Redban and New Jersey comedian Joey Diaz, a talk about federal drug enforcement laws went into Rogan explaining how marijuana laws are enforced in Palm Beach County.

Rogan was talking about the school district police department's "Operation D-Minus," which included cops pretending to be high school kids buying weed from students.

"It's high school, and they're smokin' weed," he says. "That's all you're arresting them for? Look, if you're arresting them for undercover murder-for-hire plots and they're planning on knocking over banks and shit when they get out of high school, yeah, bust them for that. It's just pot."

Then, Rogan has his epiphany: "Our tax dollars went for a woman to pretend that she was in high school so she could find out who's got the weed."

Diaz inserts his line, saying from West Palm to Miami is a troublesome drug area. That leads Rogan to describe the inside of a Broward County "pill mill."

"There's all these people jonesin' and walking back-and-forth like zombies, and they're sitting there smoking cigarettes, sitting in front of the place waiting for it to open," he says. "It's fucking nuts man."

The conversation drifts off -- as it always does -- but the point remains, Rogan maintains a fairly accurate stoned view of South Florida.

I for one agree with the undercover marijuana operation to bust those high school kids!  Tax dollars well spent in my opinion!   

What if (god forbid) they lived in YOUR neighborhood and you went to the local convenience store right after those kids.  The selection of ding dongs, oreos, dorritos, and mountain dews would be decimated.  See, these police are doing us all a huge public service...saving one bag of dorritos a time.

A stoned view of Florida? Is he not right about our dumb ass drug laws? U know many people are sitting in our jails over minor marijuana offenses it's ridiculous. It's 2011 it's common knowledge that marijuana is harmless yet we still prosecute people it's retarded. But people can go get drunk as hell on south beach and start shooting

"Stoned" and "right" don't have to be exclusive from one another.

Ur right. But it does seem the writer is opposed to what Joe Rogan said, and is using stoned in a negative way.

That wasn't the intent, I've actually already bought my tickets to see his stand-up next month at the Fort Lauderdale Improv.
