Skip to comments.Maureen Dowd’s long, strange trip to Colorado lights up Internet

In more cultured circles, Maureen Dowd is known as the Pulitzer Prizewinning author and columnist for the New York Times, who was once named woman of the year by Glamour and is regarded as one of the most influential left-leaning journalists in the country.
On Twitter, shes just another superparanoid stoner with a keyboard.
Dowds half-baked odyssey began when she flew to Denver to immerse herself in some of the local culture. No, not hitting the slopes or visiting the rifle range. She had designs on getting high. You know, for one of her columns.
So she went down to the local pot shop and bought a THC-laced candy bar. She took a nibble, waited, then made a real rookie mistake: When nothing happened, nibbled some more, she wrote. Famous last words.

She looks as wizened as the 5th grade nun who made my life a living hell in 1965. What a homely broad. She has amazingly big feet as well.
And here come the reasons why everyone on FR love Maureen Dowd threads.
Still waiting ....
Does this woman sleep in a coffin when the sun is out?
What did Michael Douglas ever see in her?
Maureen, I am pretty sure I don’t care!
Wait...She of Hollywood circles had to fly to CO to get stoned for the first time in her life?
Why am I rolling in laughter right now?
Where’s Catheriine’s pics?
There are rules you know.... :)
Bill Clinton’s ‘request’.
Left leaning? I suppose a tornado is just a breeze.
can't leave a fellow FReeper hangin' ...
In her youth from the tv show, Darling Buds of May
Iirc the story is that dating her was just an acting gig for him. She was being pretty scathing about Clinton over Lewinksy at the time, so they sic’d Douglas on her to encourage her to back off.
Her scathing commentary stopped almost immediately. Once the scandal abated he dumped her for CZJ.
CZJ could make me grovel and write bad checks.
"I really want to get high with Maureen Dowd." - said no one ever.
Don’t hate me for revealing this, but Rush Limbaugh has said, in his early years in New York, he dated this half wit.....I think it was only one date, though.....Rush is a pretty smart guy...... ;-)
She was pals with Sue Mengers, the Hollywood agent, who was the biggest pothead in the history of the world. In fact, she wrote a column about Mengers’ smoking. Who is she kidding?
Not as interesting or revealing as Michelle Malkins pro-medical marijuana column from a few weeks ago.
This is like Hugh Heffner writing about virginity.
Comments are hilarious.
Only saw her from the back.
They also ended up in a fetal position for hours.
These are not margaritas.
Mo’ Dowdy has merely evolved into the adult stage of the embittered Manhattan Prog-professional woman. Unlovable and unloved, under-appreciated intellectual by her peers and employers. When entertaining visiting “firemen” I used to see her type in mid-town hotel cocktail lounges after work sitting in the piano bar with a cigarette and “just one double Manhattan” trolling for a man. A bartender identified the type, they have that double and then move on to the next lounge to have the next “just this one double Manhattan” and repeat. Sad.
Pot cookie overdose is a real problem. I saw a well-adjusted older man go outright psychotic for hours after eating half of one.
You hereby have my nonimation as FReeper of the Day!
I mean it’s not like she was all that unattractive, it’s her attitude that makes her ugly.
If she had any brain cells left, I’m sure they’re gone now.
You mean this one?
'some background about my longtime support of medical marijuana: More than 15 years ago in Seattle, while working at The Seattle Times, I met an extraordinary man who changed my mind about the issue. Ralph Seeley was a Navy nuclear submarine officer, pilot, cellist and lawyer suffering from chordoma, a rare form of bone cancer that starts in the spine. He had undergone several surgeries, including removal of one lung and partial removal of the other, and was confined to a wheelchair.
'Chronically nauseous from chemotherapy and radiation, weak from a suppressed appetite, and suffering excruciating pain, Seeley turned to marijuana cigarettes for relief.
'Contrary to cultural stereotype, Seeley was far from wasted. While smoking the drug to reduce his pain, he finished law school something he couldnt have done while on far more powerful mainstream narcotics, which left him zonked out and vomiting uncontrollably in his hospital bed after chemo. Seeley had the backing of his orthopedic doctor and University of Washington School of Medicine oncologist Dr. Ernest Conrad. He took his plight to the Washington state supreme court, where he asserted a constitutionally protected liberty interest in having his doctor issue a medical pot prescription.
'The court rejected Seeleys case for physician-prescribed marijuana, arguing that the governments interest in preserving an interlocking trellis of costly and ineffective War on Drug laws trumped his right to individual autonomy and physician treatment.'
Hey, that bottle of shiskey didn’t have a label saying, “Don’t drink all of this at once, dumbass!”
What the heck? Are they pushing marijuana tourism, so you can go smoke marijuana legally somewhere????
Gives new meaning to the term “Rocky Mountain High”.
It wasn’t her personality. As they say p***** is p*****. The little head was in control.
Ill only pay for NYT Opinion if its a captains log-style documentation of Maureen Dowds spiral into drug addiction.
Don't hold your breath - pot is less addictive than alcohol or tobacco.
And I had her cousin, twice. My therapy (twitch) is going well (twitch), thank you.
Consumption of cooked edible marijuana should be used only by those used to it.
Anyone unaccustomed should go very slow and wait an hour to hour and a half for effect
Its a gimmick really
The real way to smoke pot is in a joint...in today’s weed a jay will last thru several buzzes for average smoker
You didn't see this coming a mile away?
I stutter. Thank you Sister Virago!
Is it me or is Maureen looking more and more like Helen Thomas?
Could be. But bipolar people can also be just honestly happy and fulfilled.
Did Dowd have to be "pushed" to go to CO and consume pot?
That is one classic picture! I bet it made MoDo’s day.
