dispensary [lounge] to host Presidential Debate ‘toking game’
[MLive – Benjamin Raven] Canada’s biggest marijuana lounge is inviting guests to come watch the U.S. Presidential Debate and partake in a little “toking game.”
A toking game is simply a different take on the American favorite “drinking game,” but will replace drinks of alcohol with hits of marijuana. The Higher Limits Cannabis Lounge said the Presidential race “has been a mockery from the outset. So why not make a mockery of a mockery?”
“We’re always seeking to normalize cannabis culture, and we thought that embracing the hilarity and absurdity of the U.S. presidential election was a logical next step,” Jon Liedtke, co-owner of Higher Limits, told the Windsor Star.
The first one-on-one Presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will start 9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26 from Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.
The cannabis lounge, 251 Ouellette Ave. in Windsor, will show the debate on its 75-inch T.V. and laid out some of the rules for the game on its Facebook page.
For Clinton, participants are advised to take a puff when she coughs, sneezes or at the mention of her health issues. If the Democratic nominee mentions drone or air strikes or military intervention, take a hit from a bong. If she says the wealthy should “pay their fair share,” then finish what you have left.
As for Trump, if he says “Make America Great,” light a joint. If the Republican Presidential nominees says “believe me or another vague statement,” take a hit. If he mentions building a wall, “laugh, and then take three tokes.”
“This is all done in good fun. The rules are not mandatory, nor enforceable whatsoever,” Higher Limits writes on its Facebook page. “If you want to just watch the debate, you’re more than welcome to.
“If you want to medicate along with us, that’s cool too.”
The debate will split into six 15-minute segments, which will open with a question followed by a two-minute response and rebuttal.
Topics to be addressed in the debate include “America’s Direction,” “Achieving Prosperity” and “Securing America,” according to the Commission on Presidential Debates.
