‘Sum Chic’ on the Radio

Answer: An unforgettable encounter with the talented comedian, politician, and radio host, Elizabeth Croydon. Elizabeth Croydon is from the small suburban town of Kensington, Maryland. Just seven miles outside the Washington, D.C. border, Croydon has a knack for politics and production. For her, it felt like it was Croydon versus the world. 

Croydon is a comedian with a sharp tongue, and in a stunt to point out the corrupt political establishment taking money from Monsanto – she was one of the rebels who threw dollar bills out of the Senate Hart Office Building, from Sen. Warren’s office window. Croydon has the mind of a creator, constantly coming up with pitches for shows, and jotting down conversations she has in real life to turn them into comedy gold. While very well informed when it comes to civics, Croydon didn’t strive to be in any political office – until her friends egged her on to run for U.S. Representative for Maryland’s 8.th. 

Croydon sees herself as a creative first and foremost, while dabbling in politics, screenwriting, and, well – dabs. Is a dab-tastic live-streaming radio show hosted by a cannabis extract connoisseur who goes by the name of Phone Homie. Croydon’s taken on the responsibility of anchoring the iconic cannabis subculture show. If you want to hear Croydon in action, she’s the co-host and producer of The Evil Do Gooder Show. It was from writer Paul Dennis, who happens to live ‘across the pond’ in Croydon, England.

A Stash of Stand Up Comedy!

Pot’s Greatest Hits: A Stash Of Stand-Up Comedy is a compilation CD of the best marijuana bits from the funniest comics working today. Hosted by Doug Benson, Co-Creator and Co-Star of the off-Broadway hit, The Marijuana-logues, this collection of cannabis humor ranges from absolute stoner brilliance to absolute stoner stupidity. All the routines have their own hysterical point of view. Tom Rhodes shares a romantic story of his loneliest joint; Franklyn Ajaye describes what it was like being stoned and taking his Physical Anthropology final. Paul Gilmartin, host of Dinner and a Movie on TBS, takes us on his side splitting, courageous mission to grow weed in the middle of a Chicago winter. 

Ron Shock is clearly on his soap box as he advocates for the legalization and taxation of marijuana, while keeping everyone laughing at our government’s hypocrisy. As a bonus, the CD will be packaged with a FREE DVD. From our customized, Pot’s Greatest Hits mobile studio, we video taped the comics telling their most personal, ridiculous pot stories. In a paranoid state, Jimmy Dore threw his bag of weed out the window and hit a cop in the head. Lee Allan was so high he couldn’t find the tallest tree on the planet from 50 feet away. 

Pot’s Greatest Hits is the first and only marijuana compilation CD. It is the creation of Mr. A Productions, a Manhattan Beach, CA based company. It’s distributed by Ardustry Home Enterainment under the Laugher Heals record label banner.

Who are Really the Top Shareholders of Monsanto?

People like to talk nasty about Hugh Grant, Monsanto’s CEO, and obviously a shareholder. He purportedly owns millions of shares of Monsanto stock as well. The real owners of Monsanto stock are institutions, and people who hide behind those institutions, not individuals like Gates and Grant. According to multiple sources, five investment funds are the top shareholders in Monsanto, with the Vanguard Group, Inc. at the top. 

As you can see, the number of shares held by institutions dwarfs the number held by individuals, including those who do Monsanto’s dirty work in the public arena. The Vanguard Group owns over $3 trillion in investments in different, and mostly hated, companies like Monsanto. They also hold the world’s largest companies such as: Bank of America, JP Morgan, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley. State Street Corporation, Vanguard Group, Capital Research Global Investors, and FMR are all the key owners of – well, essentially the world. You could say that just four companies control all the big banks and all the major companies on the planet. 

An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy – including Agribusiness. What should really be concerning is who owns Vanguard. It means that seven people and their overlords are likely poisoning the entire planet through biotech, Big Ag, Big Pharma, and Big Banks.

Doctors Say E.R. Visits Up Due To Marijuana Edibles « CBS Denver

Since Colorado legalized marijuana doctors say they’re seeing more and more people coming in with THC-related problems. So CBS4’s Alan Gionet wondered if the effects of pot are different when it’s eaten instead of being smoked. Even after marijuana was legalized this year under Colorado law, it’s still unusual to see pot smokers come in for help. Colwell said about five to 10 people now come in per week, complaining about how they’re feeling after ingesting edibles. At the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center the number one complaint related to marijuana is about brownies, followed by cookies. 

Medical director Dr. Alvin Bronstein said it may be that the items are made unevenly. There’s not a lot of evidence of that or anything regarding edibles. Experts do know the effect takes longer, so people like the woman we talked to – who did not want her identity revealed, eat more. Investigators believe international student Levy Pongi ate a cookie, did not feel much effect, then ate more. 

The medical examiner tested Pongi’s body for hundreds of substances but found only THC. Dr. Colwell said that THC can bring out underlying psychosis and they’re finding people with problems who’ve had not only marijuana, but other drugs as well. Richard Kirk is accused of killing his wife after what his wife told a 911 operator was a hallucinogenic episode after eating marijuana candy and taking a prescription medication. It may be what people are eating with it is a factor.
