Roseanne’s Marijuana Episode Part 1

Highly Hilarious: Top 10 Cannabis Comedians

In honor of this glorious day, I hereby present my list of comics that have advance the cause of marijuana to audiences everywhere and, in the process, made us laugh. One of the official ‘Pot Comics’ working today and the Bongmeister behind the landmark marijuana documentary, ‘Super High Me’ and the theatre piece, The Marijuana-Logues, Doug works all over the world now. Mr. Chappelle may be the greatest comic working these days. A man of many foibles and contradictions who has influenced countless generations of comics, his legend will probably overtake fact. 

For many of us, something happened to us, after Mr. Carlin’s transitioned from button-down comic of the Eisenhower era to long-hair free-form artist that we grew to know and love in the late Sixties or early Seventies. Maybe the stoniest comic of all-time who did his set without nary marijuana reference in his act, yet the odor was rampant throughout. His sing-song laid back approach, with emphasis on pronunciation as much as for content, has influenced many new comics. Robin Williams is simply the greatest San Franciscan comic that’s ever been. 

There were many African-American comics of the ‘Chitlin’ Circuit where Richard Pryor, Moms Mabley and Flip Wilson and others worked , bringing what we know as marijuana jokes to a broader audience. Buckley earned in the process the very scary title of being Al Capone’s favorite comic. In San Francisco, the comic’s comic is Steven Pearl. There are many more famous comics, who have more money, but for the comics of San Francisco, Steven Pearl was the act we aspired to be like.

An Interview with TJ Miller About His Latest Gig, the First Openly Cannabis-Themed Comedy Tour

He’s the guy from Silicon Valley and Yogi Bear 3D. The Leafly Cannabis Comedy tour kicks off in Seattle at the Crocodile on January 2, with an opening act by Emmett Montgomery. The more mainstream [weed] gets, the more they figure out edibles and regulate them and all that kind of stuffI don’t think they have edibles in Denver anymore, ’cause some kids got into ’em. Nobody gets in a bar fight when everyone’s high. Like the Friday night late showthese are people that have worked all week, they probably went out right after work, it’s doubtful that they even went home and changed. 

Like, I’m doing comedy and all that but I’m also sort of partying. Hopefully I’m doing something, this being a cannabis tour. No Yogi Bear 4D! But, y’know, I worked on How to Train Your Dragon, and Big Hero 6, and Gravity FallsI have a very broad audience on purpose, because I believe that life is fundamentally tragic and comedy is one of our best escapes from the harshness of life. That’s the new thing to talk about! 

No one’s talkin’ about that on the cannabis tour! That’s the way I’m going to be different. I tell a story or two about my escapades as a very high person. When you’re high, spectacle and things that are super bizarre are fun to just relax into. So that’s the thing, I don’t talk about weed so much as I perform material that’s very fun to watch high. 

If everybody’s super high, sometimes it takes them a second to get a joke.

Adam Scott To Produce Marijuana Dispensary Comedy For NBC

The burgeoning Colorado marijuana industry already has spawned several reality/docu-series projects, including TruTV’s Medicine Man pilot. It is now entering the scripted field with Buds, a comedy project bought by NBC for the 2015-16 development cycle. Parks & Recreation co-star Adam Scott is teaming with the departing NBC comedy’s writer Joe Mande on the show, which hails from Gettin’ Rad Productions, Scott’s production company with his producer wife, Naomi Scott. This marks the first sale under the first-look deal Gettin’ Rad inked with Universal TV last fall. Written by writer-comedian Mande, Buds revolves around the day-to-day operations of a marijuana dispensary in Denver, Colorado. 

On the feature side, Gettin’ Rad recently produced, alongside the Duplass Brothers, indie The Overnight, which premiered at Sundance and was sold to Orchard Films. In TV, the company has produced four Greatest Event in Television History specials for Adult Swim. As an actor, Scott will next appear in the Parks & Rec series finale and Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Mande, who has 1 million Twitter followers, is with CAA and Mosiac.

Cheech and Chong move on from stoner comedy [Video]

The pro-marijuana crowd took a hit Monday night when counterculture icons Cheech and Chong announced on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Or maybe being able to buy it without having to pretend to be friends with the person selling to you took the appeal away for Cheech. So the creators and stars of such classics as Up in Smoke. Still Smokin may be evolving from something that smells like skunks to something that smells like feet. They also said they’d be getting into importing exotic reptiles and, they’re really playing with fire here, taping and distributing football games without the express written consent of the NFL. 

But old habits die hard, and Cheech and Chong will still be blazing in the form of burning leaves without a permit. Now before this goes and harshes anyone’s mellow, rest assured this was just a bit playing up the fact that the kind of humor isn’t as rebellious as it used to be, especially now that former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner has gotten involved in the weed game.

High Maintenance: the weed-smoking comedy set to change the face of the webseries

High Maintenance, the webseries created by husband-and-wife team Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, is not a stoner comedy. An anthology set in the apartments and attic spaces of New York’s creative types, the show focuses on a sprawl of unrelated smokers, all of whom share the same dealer: a cheerful, bearded man simply known as The Guy. Instead, each episode follows the character or group of characters he’s delivering weed to, in the moments leading up to the point of sale, from the cancer sufferer looking to use the munchies to combat appetite suppression, to the homeowners needing to unwind after a exhausting time hosting Airbnb guests. Last month, the streaming site, which has hosted High Maintenance throughout its run, announced a deal to make the show its first original series, providing funding for future episodes. High Maintenance highlights the advantages the webseries has over TV. 

Episodes can be as long or short as their creators want them to be, and released when they’re ready. Crucially, unlike the low-budget style of many webseries, High Maintenance looks great, filmed with a hazy dreaminess comparable with the lusher end of TV and independent film. The comic Hannibal Buress turns up in the series’ darkest episode, playing a stand-up who gets shot during one of his performances. Stevens raved about the show in a newspaper column and got in touch about appearing in an episode. The Stevens episode is perhaps the best encapsulation of what High Maintenance is about, not only in its storytelling style – the episode features a warm, expectation-confounding twist – but also in the way it reflects the spread of people who recreationally use weed. 

Both Stevens’s character and his wife are affluent, family-driven people, who just happen to enjoy smoking pot, while in other episodes we see The Guy dealing to psychiatrists, doctors, even a cast member of Wicked. Blichfeld and Sinclair argue that High Maintenance is representative of shifting attitudes to the drug. High Maintenance is available to watch now on Vimeo.

Stoner Comedy Pioneer Tommy Chong Turns 80

While 4/20 might be the official ‘unofficial stoner holiday,’ May 24th remains a significant date in marijuana lore in its own right-it’s 1/2 of the legendary comedy duo Cheech and Chong’s birthday. Today especially, is an extra special celebratory day for potheads and marijuana advocates alike, as the stoner comedy pioneer Tommy Chong turns 80. Chong, who has advocated for legal marijuana since his early stoner comedy days, is now beginning to see his dreams come to fruition. By 1965, Chong and his band, Bobby Taylor and The Vancouvers, signed with Gordy Records and recorded their debut eponymous album. After releasing two additional singles, the group broke up after Chong and bandmate Wes Henderson were fired from Motown for failing to acquire green cards to become U.S. 

citizens. Chong then returned to Vancouver, British Columbia, to run a couple of local strip joints with his brother. After settling on the name ‘Cheech and Chong,’ the soon-to-be-infamous comedy team released their self-titled debut comedy album in 1971, which was nominated for a Grammy. The duo would go on to release four more Grammy-nominated comedy albums, including Big Bambu, Los Cochinos, Cheech & Chong’s Wedding Album and Sleeping Beauty. He ended up serving 9 months in prison for the endeavor, with many questioning the ethics of the case and whether or not Chong’s status as a stoner comedian caused his ultimate downfall. 

In 2012, Chong announced he was suffering from prostate cancer. In 2015, Chong stated that his cancer had returned, this time colorectal. Now, Chong gets to enjoy the fruits of his, and so many other cannabis pioneers’ labors, through his own special brand of weed: Chong’s Choice, which is available in dispensaries throughout several weed-legal states.

Marijuana Legalzed In California As Of Jan. 1, But New Laws Still Smoky

Marijuana, the recreational drug that has launched a thousand comedy and dramatic bits on TV and film, will become legal in California as of January 1st. Now the problem is navigating the crazy-quilt of regulations and law enforcement that will still govern marijuana’s use and possession in the state. Thanks to the passage of Proposition 64 in November, 2016, legalizing the sale and cultivation of recreational marijuana for adults, California will be the biggest state to legalize by far. Despite the proposition passing by 57 percent, it still remains controversial in some quarters, and governments are not fully behind the movement. Los Angeles is a prime example of the hurdles in the new law. 

The city delayed accepting applications for legal sales until Jan. 3, causing a delay of weeks in any recreational shops opening. Other places – like California’s Kern County – have banned commercial activity. Even though recreational use is now legal, you can’t smoke it in public, or within 1,000 feet of a school or daycare center when children are present. Smoking weed from legal establishments will also be more expensive than street versions, thanks to the taxes imposed by the state. California anticipates generating a billion dollars in new revenue from recreational sales within a few years. 

At least one business has embraced the anticipated new wave of recreational use. Jack in the Box Inc. has partnered with a digital media company backed by Snoop Dogg on a new munchie meal for hungry smokers, becoming the first national fast food chain to formally embrace the marijuana user community. The meal features two tacos, french fries, onion rings, five mini churros, three chicken strips and a small drink.

Marijuana in ‘It’s Complicated’ Contributes to R Rating

The rumpus comes amid informal discussion about tweaking the ratings formula, particularly where R is involved. The M.P.A.A., a trade organization financed by the major studios, has ruminated about dividing the R rating into new categories. Nancy Meyers, who directed the film, declined to comment, as did Universal and the film’s producers. If the difference between a PG-13 and an R rating can be tens of millions of dollars at the box office, the last thing studios want is to slice the pie thinner. Some in the industry see something deeper at work, arguing that the trade organization is on its best behavior because it has a lame-duck leader in Dan Glickman and because Congressional elections will take place next year. 

The Federal Trade Commission harshly criticized the movie industry this month for inappropriately advertising movies with PG-13 and R ratings to children. Instead, the ratings board was concerned about what the movie did not have: a negative consequence for the behavior. The board, according to these people, thought the scene was uproariously funny and could leave children with a strong message that smoking marijuana is fun. The opposite, of course, could be argued: One way to make young people think that marijuana is uncool is to show the white-haired Mr. Martin, 64, smoking it. 

Ms. Graves said the board has grown more strict about drug use over the last two decades. It is hard to argue that cannabis has become anything but more routine over the years. There are now about 1,000 medical marijuana dispensaries in the Los Angeles area alone, according to city estimates; as a point of reference, there are fewer than 300 Starbucks outposts.

Stoner Comedy Pioneer And Ganjapreneur Tommy Chong Still Toking And Joking At 80

LOS ANGELES – Yeah man, Tommy Chong says he always knew he’d live to see the day marijuana legalization would be sweeping America. He even knew in 2003 when Chong was imprisoned for nine months for conspiring to distribute handcrafted artisanal bongs the government declared drug paraphernalia. So much so that when the High Priest of Stoner Comedy turns 80 on Thursday – that’s right, 80 – he expects his Chong’s Choice brand of marijuana, available in legal dispensaries in several states, will be consumed in abundance at the parties his family is planning. Not that he was ever a heavy pot user, Chong says, just a consistent connoisseur. When no other hits followed, Motown dropped the group, and the Canadian-born Chong returned to Vancouver, British Columbia, where he ran a pair of strip clubs with his brother. 

The pair began warming up audiences with stoner jokes, and a comedy team was born. Motown had helped Chong obtain a green card, and the two headed to fame and fortune in Los Angeles. On a recent early morning, Chong answers the door for a photo shoot at his longtime home in the hills overlooking L.A.’s wealthy Brentwood section, arriving in gray jeans, sandals and a black T-shirt advertising the name of a Colorado cannabis dispensary he recently visited. As a photographer sets up, Chong polishes off a breakfast of oatmeal topped with sliced banana. Chong, whose father emigrated from China before World War II, mostly identifies culturally as Chinese, although he’s equally proud of his Scotch, Irish and Native American ancestry from his mother’s side. 

Before the pair’s bitter 1980s breakup, Cheech and Chong dominated comedy for 15 years. Those efforts generally ended in angry, insult-laden exchanges until 10 years ago when Paris Chong intervened.

Who made marijuana? (the legend of 420)

Social justice baked into the laws regulating Massachusetts’s budding marijuana industry

As Massachusetts prepares the framework for legal marijuana businesses, the state is trying to address a disparity in the way authorities used to apply anti-drug laws. The Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission is acknowledging in its regulations that people of color and residents of poorer neighborhoods have been targeted for drug enforcement at higher rates than people who are white and of wealthier means. Cities with the most arrests and convictions under marijuana laws are being given a break. As part of the commission’s plan, marijuana business applicants who have been unfairly subjected to these disparities will become part of the commission’s Social Equity Program. The program offers people a variety of benefits, including employee training courses and help raising money to get their businesses off the ground. 

First-year law students in the Legal Skills in Social Context program researched how existing legislation in other states has prohibited certain communities from participating in the newfound legal marijuana industry. According to the Drug Policy Alliance, a nonprofit organization whose mission includes decriminalizing responsible drug use, nearly 80 percent of people in federal prison for drug offences and almost 60 percent in state prisons are black or Latino, despite the fact these groups use and sell drugs at similar rates to whites. Allowing people with a record of marijuana-related violations to take part in the legal pot industry is a first for states that have legalized marijuana, according to Leo Beletsky, associate professor of law and health sciences at Northeastern. The commission identified 29 municipalities in the state that have had historically high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to marijuana crimes. Title, who this week served as a guest lecturer in Beletsky’s class, has been involved in the marijuana legalization movement for more than a decade. 

She lauded the people who appointed the commission members, saying they brought a wide-range of expertise to the table. Her focus on social justice was the driving force behind the regulations that seek to level the playing field.

citizens. After settling on the name ‘Cheech and Chong,’ the soon-to-be-infamous comedy team released their self-titled debut comedy album in 1971, which was nominated for a Grammy. The duo would go on to release four more Grammy-nominated comedy albums, including Big Bambu, Los Cochinos, Cheech & Chong’s Wedding Album and Sleeping Beauty. The pair’s first feature film, Cheech and Chong’s Up In Smoke, was released in 1978 and became an instant cult classic and staple of the burgeoning pro-cannabis counterculture. The film spawned two successful sequels: Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie in 1980, and Nice Dreams in 1981. 

The pair then followed up with a trio of lesser-renowned films in Things Are Tough All Over, Still Smokin, and the non-stoner flick Cheech & Chong’s The Corsican Brothers. Now, Chong gets to enjoy the fruits of his, and so many other cannabis pioneers’ labors, through his own special brand of weed: Chong’s Choice, which is available in dispensaries throughout several weed-legal states. According to the AP, Chong’s Choice will be the pot of choice throughout his 80th birthday festivities.

Miley Cyrus Reveals Her Reasons for Quitting Weed

‘ello

In 1995, photographer Gavin Evans was commissioned by Time Out magazine in London to shoot David Bowie, during the recording of ‘Outside’. The results were a series of distinctive portraits that became widely used and well-known, and are currently on display in Harpa’s new fourth-floor gallery. The show’s central image is something darker-a close-up shot in which Bowie gazes at the viewer with a vulnerable, almost existential expression. It’s a particularly humane portrait of the singer that’s very much at odds with the stylized characters for which he became famous. Two years later, Gavin got an email from Bowie’s management about the image. 

Despite the naturalistic look of the shoot, Bowie still had some creative input.

This post, originally written on Feb. 24, 2016, is being bumped up because one of my loyal readers suffered a heart attack a few days after the New Year. She requested a Medical Minute post to warn her fellow Rose Garden members about the warning signs of a heart attack. Black people are at greater risk for heart attacks due to the prevalence of high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes in the black community.

Cheech and Chong

As an actor, director, writer, musician, art collector and humanitarian, Cheech is a man who has proven that he has the intellect and wit to make a simple smile appear in any situation. At the side of his partner Tommy Chong, he enjoyed immense off-color comedic success in the 1970’s before moving into a diverse range of roles, having appeared in more than 20 films, including Spy Kids, Tin Cup, and Once Upon A Time In Mexico. His television credits include co-starring with Don Johnson in the popular CBS drama, Nash Bridges, a recurring role on the hit series Lost, and a guest appearance on Grey’s Anatomy. Marin has also become a well-known collector of Chicano art, and is thought to own one of the more prevalent private collections. Much of it formed the core of his traveling exhibition Chicano Visions: American Painters on the Verge, which broke attendance records during its groundbreaking 15-city tour during 2001-2007 to major art museums across the United States. Selections from his collection can also be seen in his Los Angelenos/Chicano Painters of L.A., an exhibition on view at LACMA in Los Angeles, now through November 2, 2008. A third-generation Mexican American, Cheech has received numerous awards for his work on behalf of Latinos, including the 2000 Creative Achievement Award from the Imagen Foundation and the 1999 ALMA Community Service Award from the National Council of La Raza and Kraft Foods. He serves on the boards of the Smithsonian Latino Center and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. The duo regrouped at the world-famous Troubadour in L.A. and announced their first tour in over 25 years!

Synthetic Marijuana removed from Northampton head shops – Massachusetts Daily Collegian

For a month now, the police department has been going around to local head and smoke shops in the city to urge merchants to withdraw synthetic marijuana, which has recently been called dangerous by various medical organizations. Three individuals were hospitalized in Westfield after using it, which increased concern over the health hazards of the substance in western Massachusetts, McMahon said. The substance is being marketed with many prominent aliases – such as K2, K3 and Spice – said Joey Kennedy, an employee at Shop Therapy, a Northampton store that sold synthetic pot until a month ago. Since becoming available to the public two years ago, synthetic pot has gained popularity in western Massachusetts, Kennedy said, especially with teens on probation and with veterans who want to smoke marijuana but do not want to lose their benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Cooke said he has seen people get hurt after using synthetic pot. The Hempest does not sell synthetic pot, Cooke said. According to McMahon, stores have been cooperative with the police department for the removal of synthetic pot in Northampton. He consulted the health department and consequently removed the substance from Shop Therapy’s shelves the day before police visited the store. While he understands the health risks involved with synthetic pot, Kennedy said the voluntary removal hurts business due to continued demand for the substance,. McMahon said the police department, together with the Drug Enforcement Administration, is pushing for the illegalization of the chemicals in synthetic marijuana, which are now under investigation.

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.

Exclusive: Tommy Chong Talks New Comedy Tour, His Marijuana Motto & More · High Times

When cannabis icons are brought up, it’s hard not to think of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. For those that want to experience the power of Cheech and Chong for themselves, their comedy tour is likely coming to a city near you soon. We sat down with one half of the legendary duo, Tommy Chong, to discuss his history with cannabis, writing jokes about it and working with Cheech after all these years. If you violate in any way, it goes against your record when they’re sentencing you, so I had to keep from smoking pot all the time that I was in the federal penal system. Here’s my motto, it’s not how little you toke, it’s how much you toke it. There’s been times when I’m in the basement with my bongs, and I’ll take a toke, then a half hour later, I’ll take another toke and then maybe another toke. He’s a famous artist, and he was a chronic smoker for years, and then he had to quit for years because of his health, so he’s an edible guy. Pot calms the body and brain, and that’s why artists smoke it. The criticisms of pot is why us artists smoke it-because it makes you forget things but it allows you to focus on detail. Because when you’re high on pot, you see detail.
