NY Times: Getting High " the Muse to new dishes "

LOCKED DISCUSSION

I was discouraged by last week's Dining In article on the marijuana muse. I didnt get it on a variety of levels.

Firstly, who really cares whether folks smoke grass on their time, though what"s discouraging is the credit given to pot, and the subsequent innovation that comes with the munchies. My local favorite spot, Frankies 457 was profiled, and the chef owners who always looked stoned, have now confirmed to the paper that they always are.

And to make matters worse, Im the fool. Here I was praising this place for smart and innovative cuisine, only to learn now that the innovation was merely a case of the munchies.

And why would a smart, innovative business owner announce to the newspaper that they are high all the time. Its illegal stupid, and what you do on your time is likely what others do also, though why announce it to the world.

Thoughts, does anyone see my point
