Uh-Oh! Weed Shortage in Nevada Calls for ‘State of Emergency’ (Watch)

*Well double dang! The new law making recreational weed legal in Nevada hasn’t even settled in good and already its experiencing issues. On July 1st a law passed that allowed people over the age of 21 to just roll on up to their neighborhood dispensary and buy a joint, $10 bag or even as much as an ounce. But now the long lines have threatened the entire weed supply, leaving the industry in dire straits.

“We didn’t know the demand would be this intense,” Al Fasano, co-founder of Las Vegas ReLeaf, said on Tuesday. “All of a sudden you have like a thousand people at the door.…We have to tell people we’re limited in our products.”

I doubt he’s exaggerating.

EAT. SLEEP. SMOKE. REPEAT.

Limited? Not the response “veteran smokers” — OK, potheads from way back, want to hear.

Of course, this probably wouldn’t be getting the attention its getting if the state wasn’t addicted to the tax revenue they expect the pot to bring in. Its anticipated that a 10% tax on sales of recreational pot and a 15% tax on growers will generate tens of millions of dollars a year for schools and the state’s “general fund” reserves.

What’s the general fund money used for again?

This little ditty makes the pending empty shelves a real issue to interested parties even beyond the average weed consumers.

Burger King Employees Arrested: ‘Can I Get Some Weed With that Shake?’

St. Ignace, Michigan, USA - September 28, 2014: People at a Burger King location in St. Ignace, Michigan.

*Well actually, anyone wanting to buy weed at this particular Burger King had to ask for “extra crispy fries.” No one knows how long the two employees had been running the scheme out of the Burger King Drive-Thru in the small town of Epping, New Hampshire, but Garrett “Nasty Boy” Norris, 20, and his alleged accomplice Meagan Dearborn, 19, had allegedly been selling marijuana to anyone who made the request.

Now the two have been charged and are awaiting arraignment.

According to Seacoast Online an undercover cop rolled up to the window last Saturday and asked if Nasty Boy was working today — a request that had to be made to set the scene for what was to follow. Encouraged to proceed by the affirmative answer, my man ordered his extra crispy fries and proceeded to the pay window. There he got his fries, with a large coffee cup of…you know what.

I’ll bet Gotcha! was his response. Continue reading

4,200 Joints to Be ‘Distributed’ and Smoked 4-Minutes into Trump’s Inauguration

*Some serious marijuana activists are going all out to ensure the place of marijuana in Donald Trump’s administration. They will be handing out 4,200 joints to the people — for free — to be smoked at exactly 4-minutes and 20 seconds into Trump’s speech.

Hot dang! Even the non-smokers will leave with a contact high!

Let’s hope Trump himself takes a toke of something before he delves into his “Inauguration Speech.” From what he’s shown us of his public speaking prowess, would that really be so bad?

Oh hell, why not just have one in-hand DURING the speech!

Let’s face it: A Barack Obama he is NOT.

You might be wondering “what’s the message here?” Especially since the generous givers are not calling this an anti-Trump stance; but a “protest.” Continue reading

So Prop 64 Passed, Recreational Weed is Now Legal in California, But at What Cost?

Buds are removed from a container at the "Oregon's Finest" medical marijuana dispensary in Portland, Oregon April 8, 2014. Over 20 Oregon cities and counties are moving to temporarily ban medical marijuana dispensaries ahead of a May deadline, reflecting a divide between liberal Portland and more conservative rural areas wary about allowing medical weed. Portland, Oregon's largest city, already has a number of medical marijuana clinics and has not moved to ban them. Picture taken April 8, 2014.

*As you probably already know, on November 9, 2016 a law was passed in California that made marijuana use legal. That means all persons 21 years of age and up can smoke marijuana recreationally…they don’t need to spend $65 (or the $15 to renew) for a doctor to clear them for medicinal.

Oh I see that eyebrow raising, and you subconsciously wondering, “How does this writer know these details?

Suffice it to remember: I’m a journalist. I researched it. Keep reading!

But now, with such a law passing, many Californians are saying, It’s ON now! Let the good times roll.

…and others who don’t smoke (or do so responsibly) are thinking, “Uh-oh.”

Voters may have chosen the yes vote on prop 64 that makes the drug legal under state law; but make no mistake, both medicinal and other is still illegal under federal law.

Here’s what the passage of this law (Prop 64) really means. Continue reading

Woman Had No Idea She Drove 13 Lbs. of Marijuana Around in Her Truck…For Years! (Watch)

weed in plastic

*This may be hard to believe, but its true.

It all began to unravel when Melodie Peil had a hard time locking the passenger door on her 1990 Chevy van. So she asked a friend to help her.  The first thing the friend did was undo the door’s interior panel to check out the lock mechanism. It was then that he noticed the door’s frame was packed solid with bricks of grass.

No, not that grass. Grass of the not yet legal in every state kind. And the woman had driven the van over 15 years, through all sorts of security check-points (and passed) as well as transported her family throughout the neighborhood. All of this time, with this stowaway she never knew about.

Now of course you’re thinking, didn’t she…or didn’t they, smell anything? Could it be that because you (nor I) have ever packed drugs we are missing something? Perhaps it was the strong saran-wrap that protected the bricks’ odor? The weed apparently hadn’t seen the business end of a scrub brush since its original purchase from the used car dealership. (Scroll down for the video news clip.) Continue reading

Hey, You Want To Smoke A Joint? An E-Joint, That Is…

*Straight out of Holland comes a company that prides itself on being  innovative, and they have gone all out in their attempts to prove this by introducing the world’s first electronic joint.

Yep, welcome to the E-joint, y’all.

But before you get too excited and invite all of your friends and relatives around the world to join you for a toke, you should know that the point they seem to be interested in making has nothing to do with getting high.

I know. Bummer.

But get this: its shaped like a typical joint. It has a green cannabis leaf lighting up through a chrome-plated tip every time you take a toke. And it certainly has the look of pot paraphernalia.

But there is still that missing element, THC, the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis. Continue reading

Dummie On The Road: ‘Is That Pot You’re Smoking?’…’Why Yes It Is, Officer’

*Warning: You might want to take every precaution when driving with an illegal substance in your car.

Apparently, one motorist did not get the memo.

According to Massachusetts police, a Springfield man went through a stop sign and when he was pulled over, he let his window down and blew a cloud of marijuana smoke in the officer’s direction.

The officer was enforcing seat belt laws as part of the annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign when he noticed the vehicle go through a stop sign on Tuesday evening. When the driver stopped and rolled down his window, police say, the officer was “covered in a plume of smoke.” Continue reading

The ‘Negative’ Effects Of Marijuana: What We Know For Sure

Smoking marijuanaAre you a child of the 60s? 70s? 80s? Well listen up because this concerns you if you happen to enjoy lighting up the ganja. After some serious research, a new review claims that smoking weed definitely has its negative effects on your health.

And if you are a habitual smoker, you have probably already experienced many of the negative symptoms and just learned to live with them.

For example, if you started smoking marijuana in your teen years, chances are your memory isn’t exactly up to par now. Research has shown abnormalities in the brain of those who smoke in their teens and this “find” relates to learning and memory.

And don’t think that just because you may have recently started smoking, everything is cool.

You may want to slow your roll.
