This man is really funny. His comedy videos are on youtube, at klfly.

NSFW: one sexual reference, and discussion over an illegal plant.

Keith Lowell Jensen, a.k.a. "The Atheist Comedian," doesn't smoke weed. Yet, he continues to headline events sponsored by cannabis reform groups, as an effective and hilarious advocate for marijuana legalization.

On marijuana dispensaries:

O.K., let's stop kidding... this is just ridiculous. There's one on every corner... there's like way more pot dispensaries than Subways in Sacramento right now. Lotta people with asthma, y'know.

On the benefits of smoking pot:

What's wrong with weed? It's a plant. Makes people happy, and some of them less ambitious. Which, frankly... I've seen what ambitious people do. It might not be such a bad thing.

On reported symptoms of paranoia among some pot smokers:

Really? They're still saying that one, in this day and age? Marijuana makes you paranoid? It's true, it does!! Might be 'cause you keep fucking arresting people for it.
I mean, shit... masturbation makes you paranoid too, if you live with your parents

On being asked to do cannabis reform comedy benefits, despite being a non-smoker:

Guys, I'm not one of you. I don't smoke pot. I'm just slow.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
