Delightful mother of the year planning her daughter's 18th birthday party didn't think a limo ride to London for an evening of partying was enough. To make sure they had a good time she got 12 baggies of cocaine for the trip. The party was to be in February but unfortunately for mom police stopped by on the 31 of January to talk to her and caught her with the drugs. Having had 6 previous convictions tends to get you extra police attention.
Little Guy, a mixed breed terrier, found his owner, Marty Rogers', meth stash and ate some. When Little Guy got sick Marty took him to the vet where he tested positive for meth(of course). The vet turned him, Marty not Little Guy, in to police who then searched their home. They found that Little Guy was polite and left some of the meth for the nice policemen to find, as well as a stolen motorcycle. Both Marty and Little Guy are going to get new homes. One is going to the county pound and the other to the county jail.
Marijuana has long been known to be an effective glaucoma treatment. It also helps cancer and AIDS patients by increasing appetite and decreasing nausea. Now a recent study indicates pot may be useful in treating some brain tumors. Unfortunately, some people wouldn't be in favor of legalization even if it cured cancer, and now it just might.
This short, silent comedy is a bit of classic weirdness from 1916. Apparently it's quite well known, even considered a cult classic. But I hadn't heard of it before, so perhaps it'll be new to you too. Wikipedia offers this description:
In this unusually broad comedy for [Douglas] Fairbanks, the acrobatic leading man plays "Coke Ennyday," a cocaine-shooting detective parody of Sherlock Holmes, given to injecting himself from a bandolier of syringes worn across his chest, and liberally helping himself to the contents of a hatbox-sized round container of white powder labeled "COCAINE" on his desk.
Fairbanks's character otherwise lampoons Sherlock Holmes with checkered detective hat, clothes and even car, along with the aforementioned propensity for injecting cocaine whenever he feels momentarily down, then laughing with delight. A device used for observing visitors, which is referred to in the title cards as his "scientific periscope", bears a close resemblance to a modern closed-circuit television. What is apparently a clock face has "EATS, DRINKS, SLEEPS, and DOPE" instead of numbers.
The film displays a lighthearted and comic attitude toward Coke Ennyday's use of cocaine and laudanum, while he catches a gang of drug smugglers, he does so after consuming most of their opium. One of the actresses appearing, Alma Rubens, later became addicted to morphine and died young.
