Joe Rogan on California Weed Regulations “It’s Dumb!”

Best Stoner Movies

The story follows Jenkins and his stoner roommates Brian and Scarface, who start selling marijuana in a scheme to bail their friend Kenny out of jail. Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s 2012 scary movie subversion is filled with twists and turns that are even more mind-blowing after a few blunts. Plus the film’s reluctant hero ends up being Marty Mikalski, an affable stoner who is introduced by folding his enormous bong into a cop-proof travel mug. There’s even an epic gun battle between a perpetually stoned woman and some of the most brutal London gangsters ever depicted on film. While there’s plenty of laughs to be had, watching the movie in an altered state could also be confusing, as the fast-talking thugs have thick English accents and use so much British slang that some scenes come with subtitles. 

There is not a stoner in the world who does aspire to live more like The Dude, the role that will never escape Jeff Bridges. That appeal hasn’t waned, and we’re still hungry for more. Martin Scorsese’s 1978 rock doc is stuffed with stoner rock icons crushing a tribute to The Band during their farewell performance. Watch Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, and many more shred so hard that you’ll take a big bong hit and air guitar along to this legendarily drug-fueled concert. There’s also plenty of great vibes and groovy fashion that’s catnip for old-school potheads who still wish it was the ’70s. 

Columbia Pictures. The pairing of Seth Rogen and James Franco was an inspired choice by Green and executive producer Judd Apatow, and putting Danny McBride in a neck brace is a one-way ticket to comedy gold. Throw in some shockingly blunt violence and you have a recipe for stoner success.

CDC: Fake Marijuana Contaminated With Rat Poison Kills 3, Sickens More Than 100 « CBS Philly

CHICAGO – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that fake marijuana likely contaminated with rat poison has killed three people in Illinois and caused severe bleeding in more than 100 others, including a few in four other states. The CDC has alerted doctors nationwide that patients with severe, unexplained bleeding may be additional cases. The CDC is helping Illinois authorities investigate the outbreak in that state, which began in early March. Illinois reported seven more cases on Tuesday, bringing the nationwide total to at least 116. Several patients and samples of so-called synthetic marijuana from Illinois have tested positive for a lethal ingredient often used in rat poison, the CDC and Illinois authorities said. 

Symptoms include coughing up blood, blood in the urine, severe bloody noses, bleeding gums and internal bleeding. CDC’s alert says outside Illinois, emergency rooms in Indiana, Missouri, Wisconsin and Maryland have treated affected patients since March 10. Illnesses have been linked to fake marijuana before but this is the first outbreak involving rat poison contamination, said the CDC’s Renee Funk. Fake marijuana, also called synthetic cannabinoids, contains man-made chemicals that produce a high similar to marijuana. Tests on fake pot bought at a Chicago convenience store by undercover agents detected the rat poison ingredient, the U.S. 

attorney’s office said in a news release. Illnesses from fake marijuana have increased in recent years; a CDC report noted at least 456 cases between 2010 and 2015. The products are up to 100 times more potent than the active ingredient in marijuana and severe reactions have included seizures, coma and delirium.
