Attorney Warren Edson would like to throttle the anonymous marijuana breeder who named a potent strain of weed “Green Crack.”
He’s not too fond, either, of those breeders who have given strains names like “Jack the Ripper,” “White Widow,” “AK-47” and “Trainwreck.”
“How can I find them and strangle them?” Mr. Edson asks.
His beef: Mr. Edson is in the vanguard of an aggressive movement to make pot respectable â€”but decades of stoner culture keep dragging him down.
It’s an interesting and rather amusing conflict â€” and it’s kind of nice that we’ve reached a position where that even matters.
Lee at Horses’s Ass notes how the marijuana question always gets to the top (youtube, change.org, etc.) and gives a good explanation.
This isnâ€™t happening because George Soros is paying large sums of money to skew these surveys or because hackers are rigging the vote. But on the other hand, itâ€™s also not happening because marijuana prohibition is the most pressing issue in the world right now (although it has far more impact on the world around us than many of us realize). Itâ€™s happening because the issue of marijuana prohibition is the topic where the general public most readily recognizes that the words and actions of our government are thoroughly detached from reality.
The DEA is preventing doctors at veteranâ€™s hospitals from recommending medical marijuana to patients â€” even in the 14 states where medical marijuana is legal.
The Veterans Administration is taking advice from the DEA based on the federal governmentâ€™s assertion that marijuana has no medicinal value. This especially tragic because of the widespread evidence that marijuana is a safe and effective treatment for post traumatic stress disorder which is all too common among our veterans.
“Hey, Boss! You sure you ordered the right parts? These crates seem a little off.”
Workers at a Virginia company that manufactures blades and cutting tools were surprised to receive a shipment of 1,840 pounds of marijuana […]
The Augusta County Sheriff’s office said deputies found 80 boxes, each containing 23 pounds of marijuana, inside a tractor trailer making a delivery Tuesday to American Safety Razor in Verona, north of Staunton.
Employees became suspicious when the bar codes on the boxes didn’t match the equipment orders.
One question. Why did the Sheriff’s office say that deputies found 80 boxes? Seems to me the employees found them. Do they just want more credit?
It didn’t help that the homeowner voluntarily let the police in.
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper was on Celebrity Jeopardy last night, and in keeping with the success level of cable news hosts recently on the program, he finished with zero dollars.
What happened? Hereâ€™s a look at how it all went wrong â€“ and how the guy who smokes weed with Tommy Chong became the champ.
“That’s right, I lost to Cheech Marin,” Cooper told his 360 viewers last night.
“Cheech of ‘Cheech and Chong’ fame, pot-smoking star of blunt-burning films like ‘Up in Smoke,’ ‘Next Smoke’ and ‘Still Smoking,'” the CNN host continued.
“He not only beat me; he crushed me”
