'Mel Gibson'

Marijuana Rolls Into Cali Weed Shops

11/2/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A new strain of weed is creating one hell of a buzz in California marijuana dispensaries -- all because it's named after Mel Gibson.

TMZ spies -- yes, paranoid people, they're out there -- have confirmed that a  Mel Gibson strain is being sold at multiple dispensaries across the state ... despite the fact that Mel is obviously not involved, nor condones, anything to do with the sticky icky.

But here's the best part -- one dispensary employee tells us the Mel strain got it's name because, "Once you smoke it, it's supposed to make you go ballistic."

We're still not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

How stupid. First, pot doesn't make anyone go ballistic unless it's laced. Secondly they've crossed all strains there isn't anything new out there. This is just dumb.

The stronger the weed the LESS ballistic it will make you. You are much more likely to fall asleep watching TV after getting high than you are to throw a tantrum or become violent. Pot is like the anti-alcohol drug.

I think they'll sell more if they claim it can even calm Mel Gibson down. How about a commercial from Mel smoking the stuff and saying, "Peace and love to all n-s and whores, man, and I'm really sorry, Jews, about the holocaust."

Don't forget to get to the polls and vote YES on Prop 19 today!

The dispensary employee who said "Once you smoke it, it's supposed to make you go ballistic" should be fired. His careless statement is a good argument for shutting down marijuana dispensaries. Nobody wants a drug made available to the public that makes you "go ballistic" like Mel Gibson.

"Going ballistic" simply isn't a quality that people associate with marijuana, especially medical marijuana. Let's face facts here... if Mel smoked a doobie or two now and then he'd probably be more in control and less of an as****.

I've been a smoker for 25 years, and I've yet to see anyone 'go ballistic'. What a crock.

Well, it's not going to pass and the Feds have already said they aren't going to ignore their laws against drugs so make sure you don't take it out of state or draw Federal attention to yourselves. And by the way, employers in CA are already planning drug tests for everyone because they can fire you if you're stoned and/or test positive for MJ on the job and they will do it. Bummer, when unemployment is over 12% and you get fired for using drugs employers will be hiring the non-drug users!

So once you smoke it, it makes you go on Anti-Semitic, Anti-Women, and Anti-Black tirades?

Wow, REALLY, it'd make you go ballistic. I've smoked pot since I was 15 (23 now) and I've never even had a moment when I was stoned that I wanted to go crazy. This guy sounds really retarded. But either way can I get a 1/2 ounce of that stuff.
