Since marijuana is still not legal in California, unless you buy… er, obtain a medical prescription, Californians will be forced once again to quaff old fashioned alcoholic beverages to survive tonight’s guberntorial debate between Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown. Many Californians, who have yet to take this race seriously (unless you count coin tossing), will engage in some kind of drinking game while observing this verbal tennis match with their friends or cat. Although we do not condone excessive drinking of alcohol, here are some drinking game ideas you can try for tonight’s debate. Please take all usual precautions after drinking, such as refraining from driving and sending an email to an old boyfriend.
