Medical Marijuana, Inc. Continues International Expansion with Distribution in Bermuda – Cannabistical: of or concerning cannabis.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. subsidiary HempMeds® announces partnership with Bermuda pharmacy to sell RSHO CBD products on the island. HempMeds® has partnered with Northshore Pharmacy in Bermuda to sell the company’s flagship Real Scientific Hemp Oil CBD oil products in their store. This partnership will make it easier than ever before for consumers to access CBD products in Bermuda. CBD products are considered a non-prescription product in Bermuda, meaning that customers on the island looking to purchase it do not need to visit a doctor first. 

A British Overseas Territory, Bermuda is self-governing, with its own constitution and its own government. The pharmacy is located in the Northshore Medical & Aesthetics Center, which was created to help the people of Bermuda improve their physical, visual, mental, and sexual health with a range of health service offerings by expert physicians and healthcare workers. Because it is part of a larger medical services facility, Northshore Pharmacy receives increased foot traffic, increasing the number of consumers who will encounter RSHO products on the pharmacy’s shelves. The entire Bermuda market consists of a growing population of over 65,000 people. HempMeds®’ entry into the Bermuda market is part of Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s larger international expansion efforts. 

HempMeds® was the first company to distribute CBD products in a number of markets, including Puerto Rico, Brazil, Mexico, and Paraguay. Medical Marijuana, Inc. portfolio company Kannaway recently hosted its largest event ever to celebrate its successful soft launch into the European Union market. HempMeds® is excited to make RSHO CBD products available to the residents of Bermuda.

As we write this, cannabis-infused soaps, lotions, shampoos, perfumes, and other assorted beautifying potions are piled high all around us. Pro-pot day spas are also helping to advance marijuana’s makeover. The LoDo Massage Studio in Denver and Renu Day Spa in Deerfield, IL, both incorporate cannabis-spiked creams into their most popular body treatments. LoDo’s Mile High Massage elevates a basic Swedish rubdown with a hit of pain-relieving lotion laced with tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol – two of the most potent active chemicals made by the Cannabis sativa plant. Both are known for their analgesic and anti-inflammatory powers – THC, of course, is responsible for weed’s inebriating effects. 

To answer everyone’s burning question: No, cannabis creams cannot get you high. Editor-in-chief Elaine D’Farley says the growing support for marijuana legalization and an increased awareness of the potential benefits of cannabis are the driving forces behind this movement. As it stands, Colorado, Alaska, Oregon, Washington state, and Washington, D.C., have green-lit recreational use of pot; 23 states allow some form of medicinal use. With more legalization initiatives on the 2016 ballot, many more states could follow suit later this year. CBD has anxiety-quelling, antibacterial, even cancer-killing properties. 

Despite all the buzz, our understanding of cannabis and the ways it can benefit our skin, hair, and senses has been hazy at best…until now. Ahead, we call on dermatologists, cosmetic chemists, perfumers, botanists, even a couple of neuroscientists and psychopharmacology researchers to enlighten us on the age-old ingredient when it comes to makeup, fragrance, skin, and hair care.

Cancer docs feel unprepared, but recommend marijuana anyway – The Denver Post

SEATTLE – Nearly half of U.S. cancer doctors who responded to a survey say they’ve recently recommended medical marijuana to patients, although most say they don’t know enough about medicinal use. The results reflect how marijuana policy in some states has outpaced research, the study authors said. All 29 states with medical marijuana programs allow doctors to recommend it to cancer patients. Patients want to know what their doctors think about using marijuana. 

In the new study, cancer doctors said their conversations about marijuana were almost always started by patients and their families, not by the doctors themselves. Overall, nearly eight in 10 cancer doctors reported having discussed marijuana with patients or their families, with 46 percent recommending it for pain and other cancer-related problems to at least one patient in the past year. Marijuana is considered an illegal drug by federal officials and federal restrictions have limited research. Last year, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine concluded the lack of scientific information about marijuana poses a risk to public health. There’s evidence marijuana can treat chronic pain in adults and medications similar to marijuana can ease nausea from chemotherapy. 

In the study, 67 percent of cancer doctors said they view marijuana as a useful addition to standard pain therapies, with 75 percent saying it posed less risk of overdose than opioids. About half view marijuana as equal to, or more effective than, standard treatments for cancer-related nausea. Dr. Steven Pergam of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance answers questions about marijuana’s safety from his colleagues at the treatment center.

COLORADO’S ORIGINAL OUTDOOR-GROWN MJ. Welcome to Maggie’s Farm, the leading medical and recreational marijuana company in Colorado! All of our products are sun-grown from seed in soil that is 100% custom-mixed onsite. The care we take in growing our flower and our exceptional customer service are just two reasons why Maggie’s Farm is a leader in southern Colorado marijuana. If their legislation passes, Delaware could clear past minor marijuana convictions from records for more than 1,000 people. 

While still a significant reform, it often doesn’t address prior marijuana convictions and does little to reduce illicit sales. So with legalization in limbo, pro-cannabis lawmakers introduced a bill to expunge the criminal record of anyone with a minor marijuana conviction, which means that for more than 1,000 people, Delaware could clear past minor marijuana convictions from records. Minor marijuana convictions can come with major, long-term consequences. While the future of legal weed there is still unclear, clearing prior marijuana convictions is a major step toward progressive criminal justice reform. Visit the GYO Seedbank Comedy Club and turn that frown upside down with some amazingly giggly marijuana strains! 

YG Entertainment released an official statement regarding G-Dragon’s having been caught smoking marijuana. Last July, G-Dragon received investigation by the prosecutor’s office due to suspicion of smoking marijuana. G-Dragon confidently accepted the investigation because he had not smoked marijuana and went through with his schedule as usual. The first reason was because his test result was a weak positive, and the second was that G-Dragon had not deliberately smoked marijuana.

The Chase – Marijuana

Calaveras County, once pot-friendly, bans marijuana

SAN FRANCISCO – A previously pot friendly rural Northern California county has reversed course and banned commercial marijuana farms, paving the way for lawsuits from growers who previously received permits and paid taxes. A newly constituted Calaveras County board of supervisors last week voted 3-2 to ban marijuana, giving some 200 farmers with permits about three months to wind down operations. The vote to ban occurred less than a month after California authorized retail sales of marijuana for recreational use in cities and counties that approve of pot operations within their borders. Calaveras County growers with permits said Wednesday they are planning to sue. Each permit cost $5,000 and the county has collected more than $7 million in taxes from marijuana growers since 2016. 

The economically struggling county of 44,000 residents initially embraced legalized marijuana as a way to generate revenue and recover from a devastating 2015 wildfire that displaced hundreds or residents and businesses. The county used some of the marijuana tax to hire additional police and staff. Four new board members were seated this month after winning election in November on campaign promises to ban marijuana. Marijuana has deeply divided financially Calaveras County, the famous setting of a Mark Twain short story located about 150 miles east of San Francisco. Sheriff DiBasilio estimated the county, which is about the size of Rhode Island, has more than 1,000 illegal farms in addition to the 200 licensed farmers and the hundreds more who had their applications pending. 

The influx has caused a backlash among residents and led to the ouster of some leaders who approved marijuana cultivation. Ban proponents complained that a sudden influx of new marijuana growers dramatically changed the region’s makeup and damaged the environment.

A medicine derived from the marijuana plant could become the first ever to win approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. What’s more, the drug could be a major breakthrough for children who have severe forms of epilepsy. A panel of 13 federal health advisers unanimously gave the go-ahead to Epidiolex, a drug produced by British company GW Pharmaceuticals. If the FDA takes the recommendation from the advisory panel, Epidiolex would make history as the first cannabis-based prescription drug in the U.S. 

with FDA approval. Three different studies of Epidiolex show the drug reduces the number the seizures in children with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, two forms of childhood epilepsy that are rare and difficult to treat. According to the Associated Press, Sam Vogelstein, a 16-year-old from California, told the FDA panel that he experienced up to 100 seizures everyday before enrolling in a trial of the experimental drug. Epidiolex doesn’t contain THC, the drug in marijuana that alters the mind. The president and CEO of the Epilepsy Foundation, Philip Gattone, who also testified before the FDA advisory panel, said even the chance of the drug’s approval is a sign of hope. 

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration Peripheral and Central Nervous Drug Advisory Committee voted unanimously today to recommend the approval of Epidiolex for the treatment of Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndromes. The side effects of Epidiolex include diarrhea, vomiting and trouble sleeping. An exact cost of the drug has not been released, but Wall Street analysts predict it could cost $25,000 a year or more. We will know soon if the FDA approves this potentially history-making drug.

Police seize over 2 kilos of marijuana

Prince Albert police made a substantial drug bust yesterday, after answering a disturbance complaint. When officers arrived at a home in the 1000 Block of First St. E., they found a man outside bleeding from the head. Upon entering the home, officers saw firearms in plain sight. The occupants of the house were arrested for firearms offences, and police then conducted a search of the residence. 

The 39-year-old male from Prince Albert, who was not named by police, is charged with 30 counts including numerous weapons charges and possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. The suspect made his first appearance in Prince Albert Provincial Court yesterday and was released on undertaking to appear in court next on Dec. 18, 2017.

Arkansas judge blocks medical marijuana dispensaries in the state

After medical marijuana was approved in the state of Arkansas in early-2017 a judge struck down the idea of letting the businesses sell the plant which grows in the ground naturally. Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen last month ruled that the state’s licensing process for the cultivation facilities violated a 2016 voter-approved constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana for patients with certain medical conditions. To boot, the state made it a stiffer penalty for those who get caught with the plant who do not have a license for medical, making the entire process a sham to enslave and further criminalize.

Urban Dictionary: 420

The term 420 originated at San Rafael High School, in 1971, among a group of about a dozen pot-smoking wiseacres who called themselves the Waldos, who are now pushing 50. The term was shorthand for the time of day the group would meet, at the campus statue of Louis Pasteur, to smoke pot. Intent on developing their own discreet language, they made 420 code for a time to get high, and its use spread among members of an entire generation. So there ya go, someone’s parents out there invented the term 4/20. And remember this: There are NOT 420 chemicals in Weed.

Ending Marijuana Hypocrisy: The Many Benefits for Black America

If passed, the legislation would remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act, while also denying federal funds to those states maintaining cannabis criminalization. There are many reasons Black America should support this legislation, including the obvious one: it will remove one racially-applied law police use to criminalize Blacks. Bernie Sanders’ endorsement comes at a time when several high-profile Democrats have voiced their support for marijuana decriminalization. On Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced plans to introduce far-reaching marijuana legislation. Other Democrats pledging support for marijuana legalization are: Sen. 

Kirsten Gillibrand, Sen. Ron Wyden and presumed presidential candidate California Senator Kamala Harris. Senator Booker, who championed this legislation, has pointed out the contradictions with marijuana criminalization as it relates to Whites, especially of privileged, and Black people. Senator Booker’s claims are backed by statistical evidence. Booker also pointed to politicians, including presidents and congressional leaders, who’ve admitted using marijuana.

TV comedy sketch went too far with scene of girl and stripper pole, council rules

A French-language television comedy program that depicted a man leering at a girl dancing around a pole violated Canada’s broadcast regulations, according to a recent ruling. The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council found that scenes in the same episode of marijuana use and an elderly man wearing lingerie and a strap-on dildo did not cross the line. Les Beaux Malaises, which aired on the Quebec-based TVA network from 2014 until early this year, focused on the daily life of comedian Martin Matte, who played a fictional version of himself. The final episode of the series, titled La Grande Finale, aired in January. In the last scene, all the characters who had appeared on the show come together to dance to the Rolling Stones tune Sympathy for the Devil. 

Later, someone offered the couple a marijuana joint, which they took turns smoking. Broadcasters should be commended for presenting society in all its diversity. The panel similarly took no issue with the images of drug use. Where it did find fault was with the depiction of the girl. The network was ordered to publicly announce that it had breached broadcast standards.

Here Is How Marijuana Helps With Painful Menstrual Periods

There is a little known prologue to our current medical marijuana debate, a period of about one hundred years in which marijuana was a regular-if minor-player in Western pharmacology. The chapter opens in the early 19th century-the early days of scientific chemistry and the heyday of European imperialism-when Western chemists suddenly had a world’s worth of herbal remedies to study. He even contributed a paper to The Lancet on the topic cannabis and lady’s health. Lack of evidence need never impede an intrepid entrepreneur. There’s currently at least one manufacturer of CBD-smeared vaginal suppositories that claim to ease mensural cramping. 

In March 2016, cannabis activist and former Federation starship cocktail-lounge hostess Whoopi Goldberg launched a line of cannabinoidal-infused bath soaks and body rubs. Definitely on the lifestyle/ aroma therapy end of the medical spectrum, they are scientifically formulated to appeal to the spa-seeking neural receptors and will probably be about as effective as, say, any other impulse buy from the Whole Foods wellness center.

Berkeley to discuss how to make marijuana regulations equitable

Berkeley City Council will discuss proposed regulations for the operation of recreational and medicinal cannabis businesses at its special meeting Tuesday. The proposed regulations and selection process for cannabis business licenses are designed to enable efficient and timely implementation, as well as create opportunities for historically disadvantaged communities to contribute to and benefit from the industry, according to the report. New local regulations would govern how and where both medicinal and recreational cannabis businesses could operate in Berkeley, in addition to providing requirements for security, record keeping and reporting. Current regulations only allow existing medical cannabis dispensaries and manufacturers to apply for temporary adult-use cannabis permits. The city of Oakland has already implemented cannabis regulations that prioritize applications for dispensary permits based on a number of criteria – for example, the city gives preference to low-income individuals or those previously incarcerated for marijuana-related offenses in Oakland. 

Kalb said the regulations have so far been met with a positive response and that many of the city’s applicants qualify for the equity criteria. Harrison said she plans to inquire about making the criteria for low-income and formerly incarcerated individuals simpler. The council will also decide on the number of dispensaries Berkeley will have and where they will be placed. Both Harrison and Worthington emphasized that the city is only setting a maximum, not a minimum, for the number of dispensaries possible. The question of where to place the dispensaries addresses concerns regarding secondhand smoke, according to Harrison. 

She added that she was also hoping to find a way to preserve Berkeley’s tradition of marijuana collectives – places where people traded and sold marijuana. Worthington’s main concern lies with the timing of the regulations.

Doctor 420- fight for medical marijuana with a twist of comedy. The dispensary will be called Roseanne’s Joint and will sell marijuana products bearing its name, said partner Aaron Herzberg, 46. Barr joins a growing number of celebrities trying their hand at medical marijuana ventures, in Santa Ana and beyond. Last week, actor Woody Harrelson applied for a marijuana dispensary license in Hawaii. The building is 5,000 square feet, about three times the average dispensary size, said Francey, who’s already opened his first medicial marijuana shop in the city, OC3 at 3122 S. 

Halladay St. He and Herzberg said they hope the city will consider allowing cultivation or a coffee shop operation at licensed dispensaries. In 1937, the first marijuana seller was arrested and convicted under a federal Law. As cannabis disappeared from pharmacy shelves as a pain-treating medicine, and with the government driving lies about it home the plant became a source of fear, marijuana began starring in horror films that years later would become cult comedy classics. Six years later, in 1942, marijuana was removed from the United States Pharmacopeia, discrediting of its therapeutic legitimacy by the American Medical Association. 

In 1978, New Mexico passed the first state law recognizing the medical value of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Therapeutic Research Act. Eventually, marijuana gained more and more popularity as a sub-culture, complete with Tommy Chong selling his own bongs on the internet. Within a 70-year time period, the subject of marijuana took the notion of a drug dealer from a homicidal maniac to a cuddly BFFF. At the same time, the plant itself has gone from being viewed as a menace to being viewed as medicine. Now, even whole publications like The National are taking a stand against the War on Drugs, calling it a complete failure and demanding full marijuana legalization.

How To Score A Weed Card | Michael Malone | Stand-Up Comedy

Should I Call 911 When My Friends Start Flipping Out On Marijuana?

It seems that just about the time the second joint starts getting passed around the room, the girlfriend of the guy that nobody really wanted there in the first place goes quiet. Her situation is a little suspect, as everyone notices that she keeps feeling her chest from time to time. That’s when the quiet girl, despite knowing deep down inside that she is having some difficulty keeping up with the group’s rotation, decides she is going to try smoking high-powered concentrates for the first time. They will soon regret offering this level of encouragement. As soon as she blows out the hit, she looks as though she has been shot in the heart at close range. 

It is at that point when she starts belting out a cornucopia of strange, colorful obscenities and begging for someone, anyone to call 911. Depending on which state a person lives in, calling in the cavalry when someone starts flipping out after consuming too much marijuana can bring nothing but trouble. Since it is impossible to die from a marijuana overdose, and the herb cannot cause any damage to a person’s internal organs, calling 911 for a THC terror trip is really just a waste of time. Sometimes those ever-so-popular cannabis freak-outs and subsequent calls to 911 can lead to hilarity. His video for the song The Leaf, which is a first person account of the time he called 911 following a cannabis-induced panic attack, has left the Internet in stitches. 

Allport, who also works as an Associate Producer on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, told Forbes that he thought he was having a heart attack after smoking weed for the first time. After going through a rather tumotulous experience in an upstairs bathroom, which included a life-or-death battle with a dry tongue, he was lucky enough to reach a 911 dispatcher who understood exactly what he was going through.

‘Disjointed’ Is Like Any Workplace Sitcom – With More Pot, Sex And Language Set in a medical marijuana dispensary, the big networks all turned the show down. Chuck Lorre is, without question, television’s sitcom king. He created two of today’s top money-making syndicated shows – The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men – and his other hits over the years include Dharma & Greg, Grace Under Fire, Mike & Molly and Mom. Lorre’s new show, Disjointed, co-created with David Javerbaum, premieres Friday on Netflix. The show’s Los Angeles set is a hippy-looking shop filled with psychedelic posters and glass cases displaying actual product. 

Lorre describes his latest show, Disjointed, as just a regular workplace comedy, with wacky customers and lovable employees. The family tension in Disjointed is also more literal, deriving partly from the dynamic between Bates’ Earth mother character and her much more corporate son. Bates says she needed no such coaching; the subject matter is partly what drew her to the show. People are watching Netflix stoned with or without our show – by the millions, I would imagine. If the only people who watch us are stoned people who watch Neflix, that’s an enormous audience. 

His show Mom, for example, is about a pair of recovering addicts, a mother and daughter. Javerbaum is a former head writer for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and the Broadway play An Act of God.

Comedian Doug Benson tells more than marijuana jokes

Doug Benson releases one album per year, has appeared on numerous TV shows, hosts a popular web series, Getting Doug With High, as well as multiple podcasts, namely Doug Loves Movies, and occasionally stars in movies – like his Super High Me, a documentary in which he smokes marijuana every day for 30 days. All of this is, of course, in addition to doing stand up across the country and throughout the world. We recently caught up with the cannabis connoisseur to hear about his high functioning career. DB: You caught me right before I’m going to be operating a motor vehicle no, I don’t drive high. CP: Charleston’s comedy scene is growing, and there will be many aspiring and professional comics at your show. 

CP: You’re known for your crazy hard work ethic, but you generally seem to downplay it. DB: Sometimes I stop and ask myself why I have so many projects going on all the time, and it’s because I enjoy it. If I didn’t like doing one of my five podcasts, I’d stop doing it. If I didn’t enjoy going out on the road, I’d stop. CP: You did some extra work years ago in big-budget films, and you’ve appeared on a number of scripted shows. 

DB: If someone wanted to give me a dramatic acting role I would probably do it. It’s call Chronic-Con, and it’s about me trying to get high with people dressed as superheroes at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Podcast: How Gringo director Nash Edgerton made a cannabis comedy, never touched the stuff

While Gringo, a new slapstick comedy out this week via Amazon Studios, rides the well-trod trope of a mega corporation up to no good, there’s a modern and timely twist: they’re manufacturing cannabis pills, called Cannabax, down in Mexico. Gringo is chock-full of Grade-A goofiness – weird diatribes about space exploration, kidnappings gone awry, dirty Mexican slang, awkward office sex – but at its heart is some genuine commentary on the ethics of the exploding cannabis industry, and Big Business’ growing role in it. The film, which stars David Oyelowo and Charlize Theron, was directed by Australian stunt-double-turned-director Nash Edgerton. We caught up with Edgerton to learn more about how he came to direct the film, what he thinks about cannabis legalization, his own history with cannabis and more. For the juicy details, tune in to our conversation with Edgerton, in this week’s episode of the Hash podcast, below.

Tom Papa – The Deer Hunter – This Is Not Happening – Uncensored

Super High Me Movie

This was the official site for Doug Benson’s Super High Me. In the 2007 documentary film, comedian Doug Benson documents not smoking pot for 30 days and then smoking pot for 30 days in a row. Doug Benson is an American comedian who has appeared on Comedy Central Presents, Best Week Ever, and most recently as a contestant on Last Comic Standing. Everything Doug Benson did in Super High Me is legal in California. Super High Me features comedian Doug Benson and explores the current situation with medical marijuana in California and the United States, specifically focusing on the conflict between federal and state law and the explosive growth in medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles over the past two years. 

Comedian Doug Benson smokes marijuana for 30 days to see what, if any, the harmful effects of habitual cannabis use are. For a fellow who has made a name for himself as a stoner comedian, taking pot away from Benson is like snatching a teddy bear out of a child’s grasp. How Benson fits into the argument is left to the imagination, since his purpose in the film is to get high as a kite and travel. 30 days of constant weed inhalation and digestion leaves Benson in a quite a smiley fog. The film’s comedy, both in Benson’s act and in his daily life, relies heavily on one’s appreciation for pot humor. Doug Benson, a stand-up comic you may know from VH1, got the idea to make a documentary about himself smoking weed for 30 days. 

Doug Benson is funny as are his friends who appear and even the studies are funny. Benson is likable and wholesome, and the movie is pleasant and funny.

As one of the state’s chief public opponents of legal weed, Morgan has been quoted in publications like the LA Times, and one of the groups with which he is associated, the Coalition for a Drug Free California, is occasionally newsworthy. According to Reason, he’s probably one of the most important people in the state’s marijuana legalization resistance movement in 2016-a year in which the movement may capitulate. In an article for the Times-Herald, Morgan laid out all the details of his crusade against pot. For a guy who insists he does not smoke weed … Morgan really seems like he came up with most of his ideas hunched over a bong at 2:00 a.m., muttering about black helicopters. 

It’d be hard to debunk every paranoid idea to flow out of Morgan’s mouth, but a few quick pointers. Serious marijuana dependence is relatively rare, and tends to be not as serious as use of other drugs. Attempting to confirm Morgan’s theory, Reason found evidence of just six weed-smoking shooters in 23 mass shootings since 2011. ISIS propaganda sometimes features ISIS fighters burning marijuana fields. Lest you leave with the impression Morgan is some kind of joke – he’s not. 

To put it another way, people like Morgan might not be winning the public debate over marijuana, but they are propping up a very real national status quo of police slamming people in jail for smoking a joint. Morgan is not that much of an anomaly among the ignominious company of many historical prohibitionists. That’s not particularly funny and neither is a guy like Roger Morgan.

Medical marijuana RX?

A new medical guideline suggests family doctors should think twice before prescribing medical marijuana to their patients. The Simplified Guideline for Prescribing Medical Cannabinoids in Primary Care, published Thursday in the medical journal Canadian Family Physician, says there is limited evidence to support the reported benefits of medical marijuana for many conditions. It adds that any benefit could be balanced or even outweighed by the potential harm. The guideline was created by a committee of 10 researchers after an in-depth review of clinical trials. It was peer reviewed by 40 others, including doctors, pharmacists, nurses and patients. 

They looked at medical marijuana for treatment of pain, muscle tightness and stiffness, and nausea and vomiting, as well as at its side effects. The committee found acceptable research for use of medical marijuana for some conditions including nerve pain, palliative cancer pain, muscle stiffness related to multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury, and nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy. The researchers suggested pharmaceuticals derived from cannabis be tried before smoked marijuana to control dosage. The committee also found that side effects – including sedation, dizziness and confusion – were common and consistent. Jonathan Zaid, the executive director of patient advocacy group Canadians for Fair Access to Medical Marijuana, said it’s always good to have a review of the research. 

He suggested medical cannabis is working for more than 200,000 Canadians.

How This E-Cig Franchise Is Moving Into Marijuana

In the series finale of the Showtime comedy Weeds, marijuana is legalized, and housewife-turned-drug dealer Nancy Botwin builds a 50-unit chain of pot cafes that she eventually sells to Starbucks. With legalization in Colorado and Washington in full swing, and with referendums passed in Alaska, Oregon and Washington, D.C., Paul is prepping his 20-unit, Tulsa, Okla.-based e-cigarette franchise to get ahead of the game in case pot laws fall across the country. The non-narcotic hemp base can be mixed evenly with high-strength cannabis oil. We aren’t actually selling marijuana or cannabis oil. Instead, if a franchisee lives in a state where marijuana is legal, we license them the M-System technology and our know-how. 

We’ll help them find wholesalers and set up those types of relationships where they can produce their own cannabis oils. If someone buys a Palm Beach Vapors shop, they are buying an e-cigarette business. If they want to add marijuana if it becomes legal in their area, they can, but they won’t be required to. Yes! In the e-cigarette market today, the bad guy in the juice is the propylene glycol. 

I think there will be a marriage of the e-cigarette and marijuana industries in the near future, and we want to be in the center for that merge. I think the barriers will continue to fall, and marijuana will be a big part of the next presidential election. If there’s some sort of crackdown, we will still survive as an e-cigarette franchise.

Sanford and Son – Growing Marijuana

Wander into the weed with pot comedy ‘Disjointed’

Kathy Bates stars as Ruth Whitefeather Feldman, who was a pot advocate for years before she opened Ruth’s Alternative Care with her recent college graduate son, Travis. The other budtenders include modern-day hippie Pete; Jenny, who lies to her Chinese mother about her job; and Olivia, who is distinguished from the other two staff members by the fact that she doesn’t seem stoned all the time. Also on the staff is military veteran Carter, who suffers from PTSD and serves as the store’s security guard. Chris Redd and Betsy Sodaro play Dank and Dabby, a pair of completely unhinged Internet stars who are regular patrons of the dispensary; Nicole Sullivan is Maria, an overstressed mom who wandered into the store one day thinking pot might offer relief and seems to never have left; and Michael Trucco is Tae Kwon Doug, who runs a martial arts studio next door, has no use for a pot dispensary in the neighborhood and is given to all sorts of malaprops with sexual connotations he never gets. There isn’t much of a plot, although there are occasional moments that do seem to be circling some kind of story line. 

Olivia and Travis flirt here and there, Pete thinks his pot plants are talking to him, Jenny breaks out in song at one point and imagines she’s singing in a nightclub, and Travis wants his mother to adopt more pragmatic management techniques, such as putting her money in a bank and not in the ceiling. A little of Pete, Jenny and Tae Kwon Doug goes a very long way, but most of the focus is on Ruth, Travis and Olivia, with off-the-wall moments for Dank and Dabby. Many times, the best parts of each episode are the fake pot commercials, including a hilarious ad with dancing cannabis containers all shot in glorious 1950s’ black and white. In further conscious defiance of logical episodic structure, there are even a few sophisticated animation sequences, including one representing the torment of Carter’s mind. If you watch Wolf Blitzer stoned, you’ll probably laugh, too. 

This isn’t primo TV, but it’s also not stems and seeds. David Wiegand is an assistant managing editor and the TV critic of The San Francisco Chronicle.

Remembering Miloš Forman, The First Marijuana Comedy Director

You may never have heard of Miloš Forman, but you should have. At least if you think movies about weed are funny, you should have heard of him. Miloš Forman did win two Academy Awards for directing two amazing films, Amadeus and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Next of course starring Jack Nicholson. The movie you may never have heard of and may become a quick favorite is Taking Off from 1971. Mr. 

Forman passed away last week at the age of 86. In his movie Taking Off, rich New Yorkers just do not know what to do about their out of control children that are regular potheads. They seek out guidance from a support group led by Vincent Schiavelli to discover how to manage their young stoners. They are advised by their support group to learn and understand what could be drawing their teenagers to marijuana by indulging in a smoke session themselves. Joints are passed around the group that do not seem entirely turned off by the idea and hilarity ensues. 

On top of winning two Academy Awards, Miloš Forman won the Grand Prix award at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival for Taking Off. The Grand Prix award virtually makes Taking Off to most acclaimed stoner movie of all time. It makes movies like Pineapple Express make a lot of sense even though they may never had planned on it making sense in the first place.

Doctor 420- fight for medical marijuana with a twist of comedy

From comedy to cannabis: Roseanne Barr invests in Santa Ana pot shop – Orange County Register

SANTA ANA – First, comedian Roseanne Barr blazed trails with her sitcom; more recently she joined the growing reality TV world as she farmed macadamia nuts in Hawaii. Barr will be an investor and have a licensing agreement with a dispensary that’s one of 20 that won a city lottery last year allowing it to apply to operate in Santa Ana, the actress’ spokesman and the dispensary’s partners said this week. The dispensary will be called Roseanne’s Joint and will sell marijuana products bearing its name, said partner Aaron Herzberg, 46. Barr joins a growing number of celebrities trying their hand at medical marijuana ventures, in Santa Ana and beyond. Cypress Hill rapper B-Real was the first celebrity to jump into the local pot scene when his dispensary was among those to win Santa Ana’s dispensary license lottery. Last week, actor Woody Harrelson applied for a marijuana dispensary license in Hawaii. Herzberg said construction for Roseanne’s Joint could be completed by late April, a necessary element to receive the regulatory safety permit, and the dispensary could open shortly afterward. Dispensary partners see Roseanne’s Joint as only the start. Barr’s licensed products could someday be distributed at other stores and she could be involved in other pot shop ventures, Herzberg said. The building is 5,000 square feet, about three times the average dispensary size, said Francey, who’s already opened his first medicial marijuana shop in the city, OC3 at 3122 S. Halladay St. He and Herzberg said they hope the city will consider allowing cultivation or a coffee shop operation at licensed dispensaries.

In 1937, the first marijuana seller was arrested and convicted under a federal Law. As cannabis disappeared from pharmacy shelves as a pain-treating medicine, and with the government driving lies about it home the plant became a source of fear, marijuana began starring in horror films that years later would become cult comedy classics. Bill wakes up from being knocked unconscious to believe that he did the deed, leaving the message to be that a night of heavy marijuana use led to all of it. Six years later, in 1942, marijuana was removed from the United States Pharmacopeia, discrediting of its therapeutic legitimacy by the American Medical Association. Pulling up to border patrol in a giant green van, unaware that the van is completely constructed of marijuana, a stoned, lazy-eyed Pedro rolls down the window to greet a border patrol officer. In 1978, New Mexico passed the first state law recognizing the medical value of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Therapeutic Research Act. Eventually, marijuana gained more and more popularity as a sub-culture, complete with Tommy Chong selling his own bongs on the internet. Gallup is saying that 58% of Americans are in favor of legalizing marijuana. Within a 70-year time period, the subject of marijuana took the notion of a drug dealer from a homicidal maniac to a cuddly BFFF. At the same time, the plant itself has gone from being viewed as a menace to being viewed as medicine. Now, even whole publications like The National are taking a stand against the War on Drugs, calling it a complete failure and demanding full marijuana legalization.

Assessing the state of the stoner comedy with a Denver cannabis king

As far as cannabis cred goes, you can’t do much better than co-owning a dispensary and a chain of pizza parlors and sponsoring comedy shows. The A.V. Club, on the other hand, decided to ask him about the state of the stoner comedy in the brave new world of legal cannabis, where stigmas against smoking pot in polite society are beginning to dissolve. Movies in general exaggerate things, they find certain things to exploit, and you definitely see a pattern with cannabis [on film]. We’re starting to see some of that on TV, especially on streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, or cable networks like HBO or Showtime, showing cannabis use in a totally different way. After I got established in the cannabis scene and in pizza, I started Sex Pot Comedy at one of my pizzerias down south. So we moved it to the Oriental Theater, and we’ve been doing cannabis consumption shows there for about two years. If you saw the Sexpot Comedy logo on a poster, it was just kind of an unspoken thing that you’d know these venues were cannabis friendly. We have 45 shows a month in Denver, in L.A., Chicago, and New York City, we’ve got 20 podcasts, and they all tie into this central theme that even if they’re not about cannabis, they’re adjacent to it. KK: There’s been a lot of debate in Denver lately about whether a cannabis crowd is good to have at a comedy show. When talking about Broad City-for the past two decades, the cannabis industry has been notorious for sexualizing women, and whenever you’d see women involved in cannabis it’d be about sex, in ads or even in movies.

The Trump Administration’s Reefer Madness: The Daily Show

New marijuana workplace web comedy series filming in DC

WASHINGTON – It has been just over a year since D.C. voters approved Initiative 71, which made it legal to possess and cultivate marijuana with some limitations. Now, it is not particularly surprising someone has decided this would make a great subject for a television show. Washington D.C. has been the focus of plenty of hit shows, but one local couple said it is high time for a new kind of series – one focused on D.C.’s marijuana industry. They have been working on the pilot at the Mess Hall in Northeast D.C. They have turned a commercial kitchen space into a fictional marijuana cultivation center. The pair cast five main actors for the pilot of their scripted dark comedy. They chose five leads – four of them, including David Johnson and Devin Nikki Thomas, are locals. The filmmakers admit there is an advocacy quality to this project. They have spent $20,000 of their own money to make this show and they are disappointed one group – D.C’s Office of Motion Picture and Television Development – has declined to take part and won’t allow its logo to be included at the end of the show. A spokesperson for Office of Motion Picture and Television Development said they support the filmmakers and their right to film in D.C. But they said as an office, they did not want to be seen as endorsing what is a sensitive and still somewhat controversial subject matter, especially since they have not been able to review the final content. As for that final content, the creators said they are aiming for a release in early spring around April 20, otherwise known as 4/20. They are hoping to get picked up by a major distributor.

Netflix Marijuana Strains Used to Market Comedy That’s All Smoke and No Fire

If you regularly keep up on weed news, you’ve probably heard a bit about the new Netflix marijuana strains that were available last weekend as part of a promotion for their original comedy series Disjointed. If thousands of personalized Instagram photos of people excitedly or nervously standing in front of a haunted house can reach horror fans, it stands to reason that Netflix is considering stoners a target audience for their marijuana-centric show by offering limited edition official Netflix marijuana strains. Three strains tie directly into Disjointed while other Netflix marijuana strains reference additional original programming such as Arrested Development and Orange is the New Black. The strains were available at West Hollywood’s Alternative Health Herbal Services over the weekend and Netflix received no profit from their sale, meaning their stake in this was purely promotional. With this kind of lazy humor on a show set in a medical marijuana dispensary, you can probably guess how they handle stoner humor. It’s here that the idea to market official Netflix marijuana strains may have skipped a beat. The show is interrupted by fake commercials for marijuana products and bizarre segues that almost echo That ’70s Show. Not exactly the kind of jokes you’d hope for from a show about a marijuana dispensary in 2017. I recognize that Disjointed is a comedy show but its premise tackles some volatile situations, and placing the show in a unique position to actually broadcast a certain reputation for medical marijuana. Shows like Broad City, Six Feet Under and even Legends of Tomorrow seem to do more by showing regular people smoking weed and functioning normally in the greater plot of things.

Comedy, Cancer, and Cannabis: Alan Park’s Wild Ride

By all accounts, things were going well for Alan Park in the mid-2000s. The primetime cable show, which kept tabs on the minutiae of the country’s political and cultural inner workings, saw Park become the regular face of many of the show’s political impersonations, from former Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the United States’ Donald Rumsfeld, and even Barack Obama. Park would continue working with Air Farce for these specials, although soon, to the dismay of his fans, it appeared as if Park had dropped into near oblivion. As he reveals in Green Crush with Alan Park, the weekly podcast he launched earlier this year, the comedian got some not-so-good news that saw him indefinitely sidelined from the comedy acting and writing gigs he loved dearly. Park’s acerbic wit underscores a fearless attitude perfectly suited to someone who’s twice beat stage-four cancer. Where Royal Canadian Air Farce mocked the little details of Canada’s political goings, Park does the same with Canada’s legalization plan and the ballooning costs that law enforcement officials they say they’ll face. A frequent target of Park’s is Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, especially since her ministers announced that the province would restrict all forthcoming sales of recreational cannabis to 150 government-run stores and one government-run website. The whole angle Park brings to the show is one of a conspiracy-theorist radio host. Now, Park is doing that with cannabis, becoming a sort of Canadian-marijuana Alex Jones. There’s no stopping Alan Park-on every episode of Green Crush he cites some of the science behind the notion that cannabis may treat cancer.
