Chelsea Handler’s First Experience Trying Marijuana Edibles – Late Night with Seth Meyers

WeedGeist

The new research, published Monday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, finds that deaths associated with the use of opiate drugs fell in 13 states after they legalized medical marijuana. Compared to states with no formal access to marijuana, those that allowed certain patients legal access to cannabis saw a steady drop in opiate-related overdoses that reached 33%, on average, six years after the states’ medical marijuana laws took effect. That apple cart has already been shaken by a growing body of research that suggests marijuana’s psychoactive ingredients may enhance the pain-killing effects of opiate drugs, allowing patients using marijuana for pain to take lower – and less dangerous – doses of opiate medications. In a small study published in 2011, Abrams found that cancer patients taking morphine and oxycodone experienced greater pain relief at lower opiate blood concentrations when a vaporized form of marijuana was added to their drug regimen. He has just begun recruiting for a study that will explore whether the same formulation can reduce pain, inflammation and opiate doses in patients with sickle-cell disease.

Marijuana Math

Naomi and Adam Scott are poised to explore the world of marijuana for NBC. The couple has set up scripted comedy Buds at NBC. The comedy, which received a script commitment, revolves around the day-to-day operations of a marijuana dispensary in Denver, Colo. It marks the first sale for the Parks and Recreation star and his producer-wife under their Gettin’ Rad Productions’ two-year first-look deal with Universal Television. Parks and Recreation’s Joe Mande – also a successful stand-up comedian and Twitter sensation – will pen the script and executive produce alongside Naomi and Adam Scott. 

It keeps Scott and Mande in business with the network and studio following next week’s series finale of the veteran comedy starring Amy Poehler. Gettin’ Rad recently teamed with the red-hot Duplass brothers on the Sundance standout The Overnight, which sold to Orchard Films. On the TV side, the company also has four incarnations of Adult Swim’s viral specials Greatest Event in Television History. On the acting side, Scott will wrap up NBC’s Parks and Rec and next appear in Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

‘Big Bang Theory’ Boss Chuck Lorre Shopping Pot Shop Comedy Series

The most anticipated comedy spec script this winter has just hit the marketplace – a multi-camera comedy from The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly and Mom co-creator/executive producer Chuck Lorre. It’s definitely making an impression with its provocative subject matter – weed. Co-written by Lorre and former Daily Show head writer/executive producer David Javerbaum, I’ve learned that the spec, which has been sent out to the broadcast networks and possibly Netflix, is set at a legal marijuana dispensary in Colorado and revolves around an ensemble of potheads. As someone put it, it’s The Big Bang Theory, if the guys were not geniuses but selling weed. This is the third consecutive time Lorre has come out with projects that don’t quite fit the sitcom mold, dealing with topics like obesity and sobriety. 

This marks Lorre’s follow-up to Mom, which also was taken out late in the development season as a pitch. Lorre’s last four multi-camera comedy series through Warner Bros. TV, where the mega producer is under an overall deal, all went to CBS: Two And A Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly and Mom.

Police Bust Gift Wrapped Marijuana Delivery

I guess we can expect more of these marijuana Holiday shenanigans. Just a few days ago police in Ohio busted two men with a car full of gift-wrapped weed – I guess they forget to make that shit airtight, the police smelled it as soon as they approached the car. Now police in Colonie, Colorado have a similar story to tell. Colonie police were tipped off by the USPS that a package headed for the Desmond Hotel had a very specific odor coming from it that usually emanates from a green leafy, plant, no not mistletoe – WEED. After getting that tip it was like shooting fish in a barrel for the police. They set up a sting at the hotel and when the David Malchow checked in and went to claim his parcel the cops pounced and busted him. In the package police found several smaller packages of gift-wrapped marijuana. Now I have no idea why someone either living in Colorado or visiting Colorado would need to have weed sent through the mail when they could just head to any of the numerous dispensaries in the area. All in all the bust netted about 17 pounds of weed, and one really, really unhappy guy.

Telling Teenagers the Truth about Smoking Pot

Much of my creative writing starts from things I though of while smoking Pot. My smoking Pot has resulted in a decrease in teem smoking. There is a real correlation with lazy dopers and Pot but I’m not sure if the Pot makes you a lazy doper or if you are a lazy doper type first and are therefore attracted to Pot. If Pot is messing up your life, or you don’t have the self control to use it moderately and appropriately, don’t use Pot. Pot affects different people in different ways and if Pot is having a detrimental effect on you, you should not smoke it. If Pot were legal, many people would switch from alcohol to Pot. If Pot were legal you immediately eliminate the illegal Pot market and get rid of crime associated with Pot money. The Government – Pot has been illegal for so long that no politicians have the political courage to tell the truth about Pot. Law Enforcement – There are a lot of people who make a living fighting Pot who would have to go get a real job if Pot were legalized. Pot Dealers – If Pot were legalized then people making money off of selling Pot illegally would be out of business.

The Smothers Brothers Show / Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour

‘The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour’ wasn’t expected to be a hit when it debuted in February, 1967 – scheduled on CBS as a mid-season replacement variety hour against the unbeatable Bonanza on NBC. It was a last-ditch effort on the part of the network – they had run out of ideas. A short-lived CBS sitcom called The Smothers Brothers Show hardly made a dent with audiences or critics in 1965. When ‘The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour’ returned for a second season, the show began to develop more of an edge, tackling comedy subjects other television shows never dared to – religion, recreational drugs, sex and political unrest. As you may know the Smothers Brothers inherited Judy Garland’s old stage and the ramp the Smothers used that extended out over the audience was originally built for Judy since it was reminiscent of a theatrical stage, unlike most television stages which are audience level. A lot has been written about ‘The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour’, and its unique place in TV history. George Harrison from the opening of a 1968 Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. At the end of the third season, because of numerous censorship battles and a constant beating in the conservative press – and the fact that Tommy Smothers was turning in the shows too late to be edited before broadcast – CBS demanded that the Comedy Hour episodes be completed and reviewed by censors by Wednesday of each week. Even after they had renewed the show for another season, CBS cancelled the Comedy Hour in 1969 – sending the Smothers Brothers and the network into court, and squelching Tommy Smothers’ idea of filming season four from counter-culture ground zero – San Francisco. The Smothers offered the censored episode on a syndicated basis, hoping that stations would sign on for a new ninety-minute Smothers special with new material added. Instead, NBC aired a 60-minute special starring the Smothers brothers and Peter Fonda which led to another weekly variety series – on ABC.PART II: THE ROCKY SEVENTIES The Smothers break up, then land another series.

Today’s News: Our Take

Netflix’s new series Disjointed is almost exactly what you’d expect from a multi-camera Chuck Lorre sitcom about employees who work at a pot dispensary. Being a Lorre show, there’s still room for penis humor. What makes Disjointed unique is its frequent use of totally out there cutaway gags, which break the mold of the multi-camera format and fill out the episode lengths to nearly 30 minutes, as opposed to the traditional 22 minutes for broadcast television. These would never be seen on network TV, not just because of their content, but because of rigid rules associated with the multi-camera format… rules that are being broken on Netflix. There are about four of these per episode and they’re easily the best part of the show, not necessarily for being funny but for being WTF-y. Also interspersed in each episode are nonsensical transitions between scenes, kind of like those in That ’70s Show featuring Kelso floating in slow motion, but in Disjointed, they’re someone raking in poker chips or a woman rolling a wheel down a path, for some reason. Even if the cutaways are there just to be like totally trippy, man, they do set the show apart from the worst of what it could be. They break up the monotony of what is otherwise an unspectacular show, and while not always funny, they’re at least bizarre. It’s an experiment that’s mostly there for the sake of being an experiment, and shows off how multi-camera comedies – built for commercial breaks and network TV – are transforming under the looser rules of streaming services. One Day at a Time similarly takes advantage of being a multi-camera comedy on Netflix, using the extra time to let stories breathe for maximum emotional impact, resulting in incredibly effective storytelling beyond setup-setup-punchline. Multi-camera comedies are often considered antiques in the television world, but it turns out the same high-tech that’s transforming how we watch TV is also making them feel brand new in different ways.

Veterans Administration Docs Can Now Talk To Patients About Marijuana

Veterans Administration Docs Can Now Talk To Patients About Marijuana : Shots – Health News Officials want health care providers to discuss how medical marijuana could interact with other medications or care, but doctors still can’t point vets to state-approved marijuana programs. The new guidance directs VA clinical staff and pharmacists to discuss with veterans how their use of medical marijuana could interact with other medications or aspects of their care, including treatment for pain management or post-traumatic stress disorder. The directive leaves in place a key prohibition: VA providers are still not permitted to refer veterans to state-approved medical marijuana programs, since the drug is illegal under federal law, with no accepted medical use. Such actions are usually misunderstandings that can be corrected, he says, but he suggests that the Veterans Health Administration provide clear guidance to its staff about the new directive so veterans aren’t harmed if they admit using marijuana. Although the new guidance encourages communication about veterans’ use of marijuana, the agency’s position on the drug hasn’t changed, says Curtis Cashour, a VA spokesman. Under federal law, marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, meaning it has no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Instead, in states that have legalized the use of medical marijuana, doctors may refer patients to state-approved programs that allow marijuana use in certain circumstances. Patients who have a disease or condition that’s approved for treatment with marijuana under the law are generally registered with the state and receive marijuana through state-regulated dispensaries or other facilities. Moves by states to legalize marijuana for medical or recreational use have created a confusing landscape for patients to navigate. The accelerating trend of states approving marijuana for medical and recreational purposes may be getting ahead of the science to support it, they say.
