Whoops! You Got Too High And Now President Erdoğan Of Turkey Has Increased Powers

Well, you done goofed. You smoked too much weed. Now you have to lay down, your breathing’s all weird, and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President of Turkey, has gained increased powers under a recent referendum.

Maybe the edible kicked in all at once. Maybe you’ve never tried dabs before. Maybe you’ve just got a low tolerance. Either way, there’s no going back now and you have to deal with the consequences: Erdoğan has cemented his autocratic rule over Turkey after winning a much-disputed referendum, effectively eroding its democratic institutions.

We know you didn’t mean to ruin your 4/20 like this. But you got too ambitious with your kush, kid, and now all you’ve gotten out of your super-sized joint is a dizzy head and a virtual dictator who just secured broad control over Turkey’s parliamentary system, powers to make law by decree, and the abolition of the office of Prime Minister.

The most important thing to remember is that it happens to everyone. Cannabis can be a finicky beast, and it’s all too easy to get lost while wandering down that green-bricked road. Just stay calm and remember that no one has ever died from an overdose. Keep in mind you’ll be fine in a few hours, your friends don’t think you’re a drag, and that Erdoğan likely won’t be able to run again at the end of his next term in 2034 due to his old age.
