Stoner Comedy True Buds TV: Weed Time Traveler

Tesla CEO Elon Musk Smokes Marijuana on Comedy Podcast

Elon Musk sipped whiskey and puffed a little weed while musing at length late Thursday about artificial intelligence, colonizing space, and the need to give love a chance. The Tesla entrepreneur shared thoughts on those topics and more during a podcast with comedian Joe Rogan that lasted more than two hours and stretched into Friday. Musk’s current endeavors include electric carmaker Tesla; private space exploration enterprise SpaceX; tunnel-drilling Boring Company, and a Neuralink operation working on augmenting human brains with artificial intelligence. During the course of a wide-ranging chat with Rogan, Musk drank whiskey and tried a marijuana-and-tobacco cigarette proffered by the comedian. He maintained that getting things accomplished, especially being useful to others, was among his joys. 

Musk said that when it comes to social media he only uses Twitter, and that is for its power to get messages out. He contended that he ignores the majority of negative comments at Twitter, but has occasionally been drawn in and made mistakes. Nearly 90,000 people tuned into the podcast Rogan live-streamed with Musk at YouTube. He had long argued that AI would be humanity’s undoing, with sentient software treating people, at best, like house cats. Musk is now of a mind that whatever the future of AI, it is outside of human control. 

A danger, he noted, is that humans will turn AI into a weapon to unleash on one another. Musk appeared to get emotional while talking about the harm being done to the atmosphere and oceans by burning fossil fuels.

Canadian Sketch Comedy Pokes Fun At Marijuana Worries At US Border

You could say that anxiety around cannabis at the U.S.-Canada border is at an all-time high. People are getting banned for life from the United States for revealing any association with the cannabis industry. Admitting past drug use could also get you banned for life. The show focuses on four main archetypes of characters who may have trouble crossing: cannabis investors, recreational users, a start-up associate, and obviously stoned teenagers. Legal adult-use cannabis sales will start Oct. 17 in Canada.

TORONTO, ON-In a move that is likely to revolutionize the marijuana-delivery industry in Canada, Shoppers Drug Mart has applied for a license to dispense marijuana, rather than having consumers simply acquire it from Shoppers cashier Tyler after he is done work. The benefits inherent in acquiring the license itself rather than simply having customers wait around for the end of Tyler’s shift or asking him to take a quick break will be many, Oakwood assures.

Elon Musk to resign as board chairman of Tesla, pay $20 million fine

That’s a high price to pay for a stupid pot joke. Elon Musk must step down as chairman of the board of Tesla for three years – and he and the car company will each forfeit $20 million – under a punishing settlement forced by the Securities and Exchange Commission. When first questioned by the SEC, Musk confessed that he had settled on the $420 figure to make a dumb pot joke to impress his girlfriend. Musk will remain chief executive of Tesla, the SEC said in announcing the settlement Saturday. In accepting the settlement terms, Musk has neither admitted nor denied the SEC’s civil allegations that he committed fraud by misleading his investors. 

The settlement terms are slightly tougher than those Musk had rejected during negotiations Thursday, The New York Times reported, citing two people briefed on the talks. Those earlier terms would have barred him from serving as chairman for two years instead of three and would have cost him a $10 million fine instead of $20 million. The SEC made an initial hardball offer before filing Thursday’s lawsuit, under which Musk would have stepped down for two years as both chair and CEO, effectively severing all ties to Tesla. The SEC slap comes two months after Musk earned the feds’ ire with a Wall Street-blindsiding Aug. 7 tweet teasing that he planned to take the company private. Tesla’s own executives had been caught unawares. 

He had calculated a potential share price of $419 by taking that day’s closing share price and tacking on a 20 percent premium, the feds alleged in the lawsuit. Earlier this month, Tesla fell to its lowest point in five months ­after he smoked marijuana on a Joe Rogan podcast.

Elon Musk smokes marijuana live on web show

YOUTUBE/POWERFULJRE Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has smoked marijuana live on the web during a podcast with comedian Joe Rogan. Mr Rogan offered his guest the drug, which is legal in California, as the pair discussed tech innovation and the public’s perception of Mr Musk. Tesla shares fell more than nine per cent following Mr Musk’s appearance on the show. BBC business correspondent Kim Gittleson says the podcast appearance coupled with the departure of a key executive who blamed increasing public scrutiny of the company for his decision to leave has shaken investor confidence in Tesla. His controversial plans regarding Tesla’s ownership were dropped about two weeks later, following outrage from some investors. 

From his frequent tweet storms, to accusing a British rescue diver in Thailand of pedophilia, to a quick u-turn on an effort to take Tesla private – it’s no wonder both investors and his closest friends have begun to worry. When it comes to Tesla, the erratic behaviour of Mr Musk might be the least of the company’s problems. Tesla has long been one of the most bet-against stocks on Wall Street. While that’s something that has long frustrated Mr Musk, this certainly won’t change that. During the podcast, Mr Rogan offered Mr Musk a joint, which he said contained a mix of tobacco and marijuana – dried leaves and flowering parts of the female cannabis plant. 

During their conversation, Mr Musk talked about his health and his management of Tesla – which he said was the most challenging of his various businesses and projects. To close the podcast, Mr Musk was asked if he had any concluding remarks.

Elon Musk smokes marijuana on Joe Rogan’s podcast

Tesla’s Elon Musk provoked another Twitter storm on Friday by briefly smoking marijuana on a live web show with comedian Joe Rogan. The forty-seven year old billionaire spent two and a half hours on a podcast late Thursday discussing everything from artificial intelligence and its impact on humankind to flame throwers and social media. Musk stunned investors a month back with tweets saying he had funding to take the company private for $420 per share. He then backed off from his plan saying Tesla was better off as a public company. He followed it up with fresh attacks on British cave diver Vernon Unsworth. 

Neither Tesla nor Musk have commented on the Buzzfeed report. Musk apologized to Unsworth in July for similar insults he made on Twitter following the rescue of a dozen Thai schoolboys and their football coach from a cave in Thailand. The billionaire’s behaviour has raised concerns about his leadership and several Wall Street analysts have called for the company to appoint a strong No. 2 to prop up Tesla’s operations and standing with investors. His followers on Twitter went into a frenzy following the podcast. Several followers questioned if it was against the company’s policy, while others mocked the CEO’s initial $420 bid, a number that has become code for marijuana.

Canadian clubs want to bring comedy and cannabis together

TORONTO – It’s an age-old pairing that’s sparked a subgenre of films, shows and standup acts: cannabis and comedy. Stoned audiences are often the toughest to make laugh, say standup comics, who note that what high crowds lack in audible appreciation they make up for in friendly feedback and less heckling than drinking audiences. There’s also a Toronto Cannabis Comedy Festival planned for later this month. Comedy producer Joanne Baker, who is a medical marijuana user, opened the Underground Cafe and Social Club in 2006. High comedy crowds tend to like political humour and often don’t enjoy comedy that shames people, says Baker. 

Observational humour and nostalgia work well on a high crowd, notes Rita. Audiences at Baker’s club also want to see diversity onstage. Baker notes high comedy crowds are on a different mental level than those who are drinking and may seem more difficult because they’re so inside their heads. Rita embraces the challenge, noting it helps him be a better comic. You just have to be overly prepared before going onstage in front of a high crowd, he says. 

Yuk Yuk’s founder Breslin says he isn’t considering allowing cannabis use in his club come Oct. 17, but most comics he knows use marijuana and some have done so before going onstage at his club. Even if comics don’t use cannabis personally, they sometimes get a contact high anyway while onstage.

Comedy and Magic Club :: Jimmy Dore

Walking through Jimmy’s Dore.This week I sopke with an outstanding comedian named Jimmy Dore. He has appeared multiple times on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central, and the Late Late Show. Rew: I know you talk about politics a lot in your act. Jimmy: Well, I don’t really talk about politics. Like, I’ll talk about healthcare or I’ll talk about the banking fiasco or the oil thing. 

Rew: I am proud to say that after three years of interviews that is the first Spiro Agnew reference. That’s what comedy club’s are supposed to be about. You talk about things that are a little more risque. The ticket booth is going to be open when they say it is going to be open and everything is right and it’s just run well and I think that is why that club is successful. I know that nobody goes to comedy clubs for food, they go there for the comedy, the comedy is always top notch, but the food there is also. 

I’m not embarrassed to say half the reason I like to go down to the Comedy & Magic Club is to get the blackened salmon. Jimmy Dore will be one of the ten comedians featured on Friday, June 18th and Saturday, June 19th 2010.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BULl_gyHfoHow to get a medical marijuana card

Medical Marijuana in Ohio

As September begins, Ohio’s newly formed medical marijuana program continues to be plagued by various delays and failures. As a direct result, our state’s patients, who are in dire need of the treatment cannabis provides, will have to wait even longer for the legal relief they require. On July 31, Buckeye Relief in Eastlake planted the first legal seeds, a momentous day only made possible because the cultivating facility finally received its certificate of operation from the state four days before. The state’s department of commerce can only give up to 12 of these certifications before the September 8 deadline, with potentially more on the way. Buckeye Relief is one of only three growers in the state that has been given the go ahead to start planting, with five more supposedly being allowed to start soon. 

Eventually, only 26 licensed growers will be allowed to operate in the entire state. In addition to this already restrictive situation, the state had as many as 104 applications for processing center licenses, which again are necessary for transforming the crops into consumable products, but only 13 have been approved so far – and the state only intends on approving 40. On top of all of this, only 222 doctors have been given the authority to prescribe the drug, which requires a certain amount of training, and even then, there are only 21 medical conditions for which the state allows the drug to be prescribed. Bob Bridges, who sits on the state’s Medical Marijuana Advisory Committee as an advocate for patients, says the registry should be live now, because it would give growers and processors a better estimate of how many patients are looking to consume products. While many of the failed applicants in the various realms of Ohio’s faulty medical marijuana program have chances to re-apply later on down the line, it’s no mystery as to why some of the cannabis entrepreneurs here in the Buckeye State are even contemplating legal action. 

The federal government has recognized up to 150 qualifying medical conditions for which cannabis can be at least researched, and those scientific studies have since found that marijuana can be used to treat up to 400 various medical conditions. At the end of the day, with so many different people understanding the various benefits of unrestricted medical marijuana utilization – from patients to scientists to journalists – it’s high time that Ohio’s state officials do the same.

How the Legal Marijuana Industry Is Helping Grow []

Comedians like Doug Benson and Stephen Colbert have been getting a lot of joke-mileage out of Colorado’s legalization of marijuana last January. The name is derived from Khalatbari’s chain of pizza restaurants, Sexy Pizza, one of which hosted the first Sexpot Comedy show early last year. The show has since grown and splintered into several regular events, hosted at different comedy clubs and music venues around town under the Sexpot banner. For years Denver has been a known destination for touring comics; the thirty-year-old Comedy Works has been proclaimed by performers like Dave Chappelle and Dave Attell as their favorite comedy club. Last summer, Juett and comedian Adam Cayton-Holland produced Denver’s first large-scale comedy festival, The High Plains Comedy Festival, which was headlined by Reggie Watts and ended up being a sold-out success. 

It was Kayvan Khalatbari’s marijuana dispensary, Denver Relief, that initially sponsored several different comedy shows and podcasts around town, back when Sexpot was just a witty pun being tossed around. While this continues in some arenas, the Sexpot Comedy shows have been gaining a lucrative momentum of their own, in part thanks to Juett’s utilization of the local comedy radio station for marketing, as well as the throbbing enthusiasm coming from Colorado’s energized marijuana scene. There’s no getting around the fact that some cannabis consumption goes on at Sexpot shows, whether through edibles, vaporizers or straight-up smoldering joints. While some Denver comedians don’t care for a stoned audience Andy Juett – who himself has acted in many sketch videos and recently began performing standup – says that there are upsides to playing for a red-eyed crowd. Khalatbari shares Juett’s feeling that marijuana shouldn’t come to dominate the identity of Sexpot Comedy. 

He’s derisive of the Cannabis Cup and 420 Festival culture that has become an unfortunate media focus of Colorado marijuana scene; and says that he is equally sick of the endless cosmos-and-munchies jokes that every hack comedian rolls out when performing in Denver. Josiah Hesse is an entertainment and pop culture journalist in Denver, Colorado whose work has appeared in Westword, Out Front Colorado, and comedy blogs LaughSpin, Splitsider and The Spit Take.

SPOILER ALERT. So if you don’t want to know what the movie was about don’t read this. They say a woman whose husband has done her wrong… OK, it might be morose on my part but I sort of want to know more about that, but he is dead already, and she does or doesn’t know much about what he did or didn’t do to her…except that she had to keep mailing letters to an address. She just hangs up on creditors, and throws the mail in the trash and goes around the village like normal…though the neighbors know all about it. 

Her gardener, a man that seems to never have held a steady job, has no money, no property; but who is shacking up with a pretty woman who works as a fisherman; is trying to grow pot under other people’s bushes. The plants aren’t doing well, and because this woman, Grace, grows orchids he decides she is a wiz with plants and asks her for help. So they go out in the dead of night, and crawl under bushes and she brings one back, saying she knows they are pot. They harvest it, somewhere in it an ex-fling of her husband keeps showing her face and Grace decides to make friends and THEN gets angry and throws her out when she finds out that her husband had sex and enjoyed it with her. She can’t so now she decides for sure the ex-girlfriend will know a dealer and goes there expecting help. 

IF the husband spent any money on this woman, and it would make sense he did; it was never even hinted at in this movie. A dealer comes to the adulterer’s house, he is not big enough, so they get him to take them to a dealer big enough…and it is a pitiful attempt to make the BIG drug dealer look menacing, and totally fails. I can’t really tell how much money it is, or if it will cover Grace’s money needs…all we are given is Grace’s face looking happy and excited. Grace already knew this while she was getting him to help her do this.

Toronto’s Marijuana Infused Comedy Scene

The center of Canada’s comedy universe is home to a series of weekly rooms where audience members can openly smoke marijuana while enjoying some of the best standup the city has to offer. Third Klass Thursdays along with Weedy Wednesdays and Stoner Sundays are three of the biggest weekly standup shows in Toronto, vapor lounge or not and all three happen at Vapor Central on Yonge Street. Despite hosting three of the biggest weekly shows in the city, Chris won’t take credit for creating the weed-infused comedy circuit. Joey aka Puff Mama is a former comedy club employee at the now defunct Comedy Wood in Toronto. She started producing her own shows once the club shut down. 

The Underground Comedy Club quickly became a popular stop for touring pros coming to Toronto. Local comedian Rob Mailloux has performed on and produced several shows at Underground. With consistently sold out rooms featuring touring pros and stacked lineups of local acts, the Vapor Lounge series of shows are some of the strongest and most successful in the city. It’s a community of shows that’s thriving in the heavily saturated Toronto comedy scene. Sold out rooms full of comedy fans openly smoking weed, carefree. 

There are a few rules that everyone must follow at the shows. Whether visiting Toronto as a comedian, comedy fan, marijuana enthusiast or curious cat, the Vapor Lounge series of shows are worth checking out.

Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum May Use Weed-Laced Smell-O-Vision

Singular filmmaker Harmony Korine has some high hopes for his latest feature, though fans of the indie auteur hoping to enjoy the full scope of his vision might have to travel a little further afield to enjoy it as it was meant to be seen. As of now, the film has yet to go into production, so perhaps Korine is already jawing about ideas that he’s built into the film’s script. We’re just going to have to wait and sniff it out later. When McConaughey first joined the project in February, it was expected to start shooting in July, though after Neon and Vice pre-bought the U.S. rights to the film at Cannes, reports held that cameras were not going to roll until this fall.

Southeast Denver Suburbs

After running the Comedy Works downtown – which some consider one of the finest comedy clubs in the nation – for nearly two decades, Wende Curtis opened the Landmark location in October 2008. While the downtown club brings in the younger, hipper and edgier comics, Comedy Works South generally brings in the slightly cleaner, nationally known acts. This 21,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility, which also includes a restaurant and a martini bar, is an upgrade on the downtown location, and the comedy theater holds nearly twice as many people. The venue is also available for private functions, including business meetings, reunions and wedding parties.

THC-laced candy, bags of marijuana seized at WL FedEx facility

Police seized roughly 50 pounds of marijuana, cannabis derivatives, and marijuana-laced candy Friday that investigators said was shipped across the country using FedEx. According to a department press release, personnel at a FedEx facility in town noticed damaged boxes and, after checking the extent of the damage, discovered the drugs inside. An Illinois state law signed last year marks August 4 in honor of the 44th president. The former president served in the Illinois state Senate, before joining the U.S. Senate, and ultimately serving two terms as U.S.

Police Officers in Argentina say Mice ate missing Marijuana

Police officers in Argentina have claimed mice ate 540kg of marijuana which disappeared from a police warehouse, Guardian reports, adding that eight officers have been dismissed following the discovery. 6,000kg of marijuana has been in storage for 2 years, but when officers returned for inspection, only 5,460kg was found. It is suspected that former Police Commissioner Javier Specia had knowledge on how the drugs went missing as he had left the inventory for the impounded marijuana unsigned when he left his post in April 2017. Specia and 3 other officers have been called to testify before a judge on May 4. Specia’s successor Emilio Portero, noticed the reduction in the amount of marijuana and notified the force’s internal affairs division, who inspected the warehouse.

What Is the Best Way to Smoke Weed?

Stoners have argued and debated about the best way to smoke weed for decades. Everyone should now how to roll a decent joint, even if they don’t smoke. Knowing how to roll a joint is a life skill, like knowing how to change a tire or how to poach an egg. Pipes are probably the most convenient way to smoke marijuana. A good hit from a clean pipe is my preferred method for fancy-pants weed tasting. 

My friend Michael Backes, author of Cannabis Pharmacy: The Practical Guide to Medical Marijuana recommends a good hit from a clean glass pipe. One good inhale and exhale should give you exactly what you need. The nicotine from the cigar wrapper and the THC from the cannabis combine to give an intense high. Blunts aren’t for everyone, and be careful that you don;t develop a nicotine addiction to go along with your cannabis habit. Maybe people claim that a good vape gives the best flavor, but I feel like the high from a vaporized cannabis is not the same as the high from incinerating the whole flower.

California marijuana CEO resigns following #PermitPatty controversy

The CEO of a California marijuana company resigned abruptly Tuesday after several days of controversy spawned by a viral video in which she appeared to be calling police to report an 8-year-old girl who was selling bottled water without a permit in San Francisco. TreatWell, based in San Francisco, manufactures marijuana tinctures for humans and pets. Ettel sparked a national firestorm last week when she allegedly threatened to call authorities on Erin Austin and her daughter Jordan because the girl was selling water without a permit to people on their way to a San Francisco Giants game at AT&T Park. Some of the criticism surrounding Ettel stemmed from the fact she is white and the girl is African-American. The hashtag #PermitPatty began trending on Twitter over the weekend as a nickname for Ettel, and she garnered criticism from nearly every corner of the country. 

Ettel was even lampooned by Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. TreatWell was also dropped by multiple California retailers, and it was unclear whether the company would be able to survive the controversy.

RTD to double trains on G-line tracks between Denver and Arvada as testing ramps up

Residents of the west Denver suburbs will notice more trains on the tracks for RTD’s yet-to-open G-line beginning Thursday as the transit district moves into the next phase of testing. The commuter rail line, which will provide service from downtown Denver to Arvada, Wheat Ridge and parts of Adams County, has now been federally approved to carry six trains for up to 10 hours a day, RTD said in a news release. The trains will run along the 11.2-mile train line roughly every 15 minutes between 3 a.m. and 1 p.m., according to RTD. The new testing doubles the amount of trains and the frequency with which they run over the previous phase that began July 20. 

The district is ramping up to a full service day’s worth of testing, a period of 21 consecutive hours. The public is asked to abide by proper safety protocols around the tracks. The G-line was originally expected to open in fall 2016 but safety concerns have repeatedly delayed it.

Does Marijuana Cause Permanent Brain Damage in Adults?

Below is an approximation of this video’s audio content. You don’t know, until you put it to the test. For a few hours after smoking, one’s learning, memory, and attention may also be impaired. The same with cognitive impairments-gone within a month or two after stopping, unless they started regularly using as a teen. Those with the most persistent cannabis use starting as an adolescent may end up losing up to eight IQ points-significantly more than if they started as an adult, and even if they then quit, starting that young appears to cause permanent brain damage. 

Sounds like if you start using as an adult there don’t seem to be any irreversible neurological problems-unless, perhaps, you smoke like 16 joints a day. In 2017, a study was published on extreme chronic and heavy cannabis use, and their poor brains really did seem to go to pot. This was at 10 times the average daily dose in Colorado-for example, a total lifetime consumption of around 75,000 joints.

Cheech and Chong Say ‘Pot’s Over’ Now That Republicans Like John Boehner Are Supporting Marijuana Reform

The age of marijuana’s rebellious and cool status is officially over, according to Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. It all started when late-night host Colbert asked Marin and Chong what they thought about the push for legalized pot now that Republicans like former House Speaker John Beohner-a longtime opponent of marijuana reform-were starting to support pot’s legalization. The company grows and sells legal marijuana and services 11 states. According to 68-year-old Boehner, he decided to join the company in effort to get veterans legal access to the drug. Although Beohner’s newfound acceptance of marijuana raised eyebrows, his sentiments regarding the medical value of the plant falls in line with a growing number of Americans who believe patients and adults should be able to legally consume cannabis. 

A Pew Research Center report in January found 61 percent of U.S. adults were in favor of legal marijuana.

Marijuana-friendly campuses? I don’t think so …

In the run-up to the legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada on Oct. 17, 2018, many universities and colleges are still in a wait-and-see position concerning marijuana use on campus. TRU’s 20-person Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee, of which I am a member, unanimously voted on March 5, 2018, to ban all smoking of marijuana products on campus – for health and safety reasons. Pro-marijuana smokers on the TRU committee argued that marijuana smoke is no different than cigarette smoke and that smoking areas designated for cigarette smoke should also be used for marijuana. Naive bystanders cannot tell the potency of the marijuana smoked just by smell alone. Most animal studies demonstrate the ease with which such second- hand marijuana smoke can negatively affect behaviour. 

Very few know that marijuana smoke has 300 to 500 per cent more carcinogens than tobacco smoke. Marijuana has been linked to addiction, drops in grades, slips and falls and car accidents. The JOHSC at Thompson Rivers University is considering individual ingestion of medical marijuana – via brownies, gummy bears or pills – on campus because the consumption of such medicinal products doesn’t negatively impact others directly. Marijuana is an intoxicant and therefore is analogous to drinking alcohol on campus. Smoking marijuana should therefore fall under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act Section 40, 1996, chapter 267. 

As TRU did not allow the open consumption of alcohol in public places on campus, neither would it allow marijuana to be smoked on campus. Marijuana has been linked to impaired motor co-ordination, altered judgment and risky sexual behaviour.

Paid content: Unlock Plenty of Perks with Your Medical Marijuana Card

Medical cannabis was legalized in California way back in 1996 with Prop. Now two years years into recreational, the medical cannabis market hasn’t disappeared. More municipalities are in favor of MMJ. Current numbers show that only 14% allow recreational cannabis dispensaries and 19% allow recreational cannabis deliveries, while 20% allow storefront medical dispensaries and 32% allow medical cannabis deliveries. As a MMJ patient, you’re allowed to buy and possess more cannabis due to less restrictive purchase limits and increased possession limits. 

There’s significant legal framework protecting medical cannabis patients. You’re allowed to grow more of your own cannabis; dispensaries can only give free cannabis to medical cannabis patients; and you’re protected from prosecution, as long as you posses/carry/grow the legal limit. Cannabis is still illegal for anyone under the age of 21 without a medical cannabis card. If you are, you’ll need a medical cannabis card to buy marijuana anywhere in California. You’re also protected by HIPPA regulations so your medical cannabis records won’t show up in a background or pre-employment check. 

A medical marijuana ID card, or MMIC, is state-issued and puts you in a California database with a unique ID number; no personal and private info required! Plus, as mentioned, it saves you from state or local cannabis sales taxes. These cannabis experts are available everyday to address any questions or concerns you have about being a marijuana patient – legislation, products, prices, storefront vs cannabis delivery like Nugg. Check out NuggMD today and find out for yourself if medical cannabis right for you!

Comedy finally has a home

It may be as good a reason as any for the construction of the new high-tech center devoted to what has made people laugh from Vaudeville to now. The nonprofit center in Jamestown was inspired by hometown hero, Lucille Ball, who envisioned a place where comedy would be celebrated as an art form. The city of about 30,000 people in the southwest corner of New York already is home to the annual Lucille Ball Comedy Festival and the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum. Located in a repurposed 1930 art-deco train station, the center is part museum, part hall of fame and part video arcade, keeping visitors smiling as they move through displays of comedic artifacts. There also are plenty of chances to laugh at the pros in action. 

A club-like comedy lounge shows stand-up bits, and a movie theater has clips of classic scenes with celebrity commentary. A hologram theater initially will feature Jim Gaffigan’s evolution as a performer. The 37,000-square-foot, $50 million center received $9 million in funding from New York state, along with private and federal support. The House of Representatives on July 23 unanimously approved a bill designating it as the nation’s official comedy center. U.S. 

Sen. Charles Schumer, whose cousin, comedian Amy Schumer is in the opening-week lineup, is working on Senate action. He is part of the center’s largely celebrity advisory board, along with Gaffigan, Carl Reiner, Laraine Newman, W. Kamau Bell, Paula Poundstone and others. Among displays is the trench coat Lenny Bruce would wear in anticipation of going from stage to jail.

Tyler Chronicles On Marijuana’s Influence In Comedy

State issues first marijuana license, steady flow predicted

BOSTON – State regulators voted unanimously Thursday to grant the state’s first recreational marijuana business license to a marijuana grower in Milford. The license approved by the Cannabis Control Commission on Thursday will allow Sira Naturals to grow between 10,001 and 20,000 square feet of marijuana at their indoor facility at 13 Commercial Way in Milford. Sira Naturals already grows marijuana for medical patients at its Milford cultivation facility and operates medical dispensaries in Cambridge, Somerville and Needham. The company grows more than 60 strains of marijuana and turns it into cookies, caramels and other edibles. The CCC has had the authority to issue business licenses to marijuana companies since June 1 and expects that retail sales will begin on or around July 1, even though the regulators have not yet licensed any retail shops. 

CCC Chairman Steven Hoffman said Thursday that the CCC expects to consider license applications at its meetings for the foreseeable future. CCC Executive Director Shawn Collins said Sira Naturals plans to be fully operational within four months of being licensed, though he noted that the company is already growing marijuana for medical use and has the ability to transfer some of that product to the adult use market. The provisional license is conditional upon a fingerprint-based check of state and federal criminal databases, payment of the $5,000 annual license fee, a certification that the company is in compliance with the Department of Public Health’s regulations for medical marijuana, and other conditions. Sira Naturals submitted its application to the CCC before any other companies, on April 18, and the CCC received word from Milford June 8 that the company is following all local zoning ordinances and town bylaws, Collins said.

Event Curator Shows Marijuana’s Feminine Mystique

Katie Partlow wants to show the softer side of cannabis. As the founder of the Los Angeles events company The Black Dahlia, Partlow is fast building a nationwide reputation as she blends entertainment and information at her weed-centric private parties. By bringing a cross section of cannabis vendors, activists, and educators into a diverse mix of guests, she aims to stretch the demographics and knowledge of marijuana. Previous events have combined cannabis vendors with art, food, live music, sound baths, burlesque, and drag. Her first public event, the February 2016 Comedy, Cake and Cannabis, featured stand-up comics and a mirrored maze of rooms decorated like oversized wedding cakes in a downtown Los Angeles art gallery. 

At its heart, the Sunday afternoon party in late May 2018 was a gently subversive, taboo-busting exploration of the ways women, and particularly mothers, can use cannabis products. Fresh marijuana leaves optional – with The Flower Daddy, or relaxed through an abbreviated tea ceremony and session of Lit Yoga, currently California’s only cannabis-and-yoga studio. Each session illustrated how cannabis fits into a responsible, wellness-focused lifestyle. Her events’ wellness themes were further inspired by Partlow’s mother, who found pain relief in cannabis, guided by her daughter’s knowledge. Vendor Doreen Sullivan, founder of My Bud Vase, used her decades of experience as a marketer and single mother in Charleston, South Carolina, to bridge a gap she identified in the cannabis market. 

Because most bongs are awkward, obvious, and phallic, the Los Angeles native began making decorative bongs from flower vases that bring a feminine, and discreet, look to the paraphernalia. This post has been updated to clarify the details of Partlow’s first event.

Marijuana users feel MORE pain: They may develop a lower pain tolerance

Marijuana users may develop a lower pain tolerance, new research suggests. A small study found people who use cannabis require higher doses of painkillers than non users after major traumatic event like a car crash. This new research conducted in Colorado – which was the first state to legalize – suggests that short-term pain relief could weaken the body’s resilience to pain over time. Frequently abusing the substance also significantly reduces a user’s ability to resist socially unacceptable behavior when provoked, the research adds. Study author Josiane Bourque from the University of Montreal, said: ‘Our findings confirm that becoming a more regular marijuana user during adolescence is associated with a risk of psychotic symptoms. 

Of these, 54 tested positive for recent marijuana use while 16 claimed they used the drug more or less every day. On average, the marijuana users required 7.6mg of opioid painkillers a day in hospital, compared to 5.6mg for non-drug users. On a scale of zero-to-10, with 10 being the worst, people who had used cannabis rated their daily pain as 4.9, compared to 4.2 for non users. This could cause marijuana users to stay in hospital longer because ‘we don’t want to discharge them on massive doses of narcotics’, said Dr Anne Wagner, from the UCHealth Burn Center, Colorado, who was not involved in the study. Users may also experience drug withdrawal, such as nausea and vomiting, which can delay healing. 

Lead author Kristin Salottolo added: ‘Marijuana users in need of pain control deserve special consideration when selecting the dosage and frequency of narcotics ‘. The researchers add further studies are required to determine how best to ease discomfort in cannabis users.
