Long-lost, local stoner-comedy ‘Arnold’s Wrecking Co.’ resurfaces in Marijuana Film Marathon

Philadelphian Steven E. de Souza made his name in Hollywood with screenplays for 48 Hrs., Die Hard, Commando and many more big-budget hits. When he was just trying to launch his film career back in 1972, he made a little 16mm pot-com called Arnold’s Wrecking Co., starring Mike Renshaw, who would later become a reporter for the Bucks County Courier Times. In honor of the 4/20 National Marijuana Holiday Arnold’s will have its small-screen premiere at 7:20 p.m. on shoutfactorytvlive.com and on Pluto TV, CH 515. 

Starring Renshaw, de Souza and Eddie Henderson, Arnold’s Wrecking Co. tells the tale of a student who tries pot for the first time, loves it and decides to distribute it, much to the aggravation of the police and the mafia.

Watch John Oliver Blaze Through the Problems with Marijuana Legalization :: Comedy :: Video :: John Oliver :: Paste

The issue of marijuana is like Mark Wahlberg being seen as a serious actor. That’s part of the central thesis of John Oliver’s latest piece on marijuana legalization; it’s something we’ve all grown to accept, but is still fraught with problems. In the case of Wahlberg, it’s films such as Transformers. For legalization, it’s a matter of new state laws about weed use being in serious conflict with existing federal laws about everything from shipping to paying employees of legal dispensaries, to individuals with disabilities being able to use marijuana. Many of those federal laws are decades old and were less strictly enforced under President Obama’s tenure.

Marijuana

First the East Village got the city’s first kava bar and now comes its first hemp bar. A large dark blue banner hangs just outside Brooklyn Dark Hemp Bar, amidst all the head shops on St. Marks Place. Earlier today, we found owner Lev Kelman setting out free samples of his ubiquitous Brooklyn Dark. Next to him, a coffee and espresso machine was primed and ready. 

Hemp chocolate brownies, pastries, and cookies were laid out on baking sheets in a small showcase on top of the counter. A few hemp t-shirts were displayed on a red brick wall.

Blazing stoners marijuana smoking comedy Ep17Pt2of4

McCarthy is fun in ‘Life of the Party,’ but comedy too infrequently LOL-funny

The latest comedy vehicle for Melissa McCarthy offers an appealing-enough premise: McCarthy plays a suddenly single woman who goes back to college to complete her degree at the same time her daughter is there for her senior year. It also can be quite charming, thanks also to McCarthy. Too often it’s is plagued by weak writing from McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone, who also directs. Full of emotions, Deanna states that it’s great to be back at Dan’s and her alma mater. After a binge at the bookstore for school-spirit gear, Deanna wakes in her dorm room before classes start. 

While her roommate, Leonor, is an odd, live-life-in-the-dark type, Deanna immediately hits it off with her daughter’s sorority sisters Amanda, Debbie and Helen. Deanna also finds a rival in the pretty-and-bratty Jennifer, another weak plot element, this one to generate occasional conflict – and a dance-off at a 1980s-themed party. Speaking of parties, at an earlier bash at a fraternity house, Deanna is given a quick makeover by Maddie in the bathroom, indulges in some binge drinking and spends the night with a young man, Jack. Of course, it makes little sense that the handsome, kind-hearted Jack becomes obsessed with Deanna based on their night of passion. McCarthy and Falcone aren’t really in the business of making sensible plot choices. 

As penned by them and performed by McCarthy, Deanna is a very likeable heroine, and her relationship with her daughter is very sweet. Rated: PG-13 for sexual material, drug content and partying.

The 50 Best Movies To Watch High

As a tribute to that activity, the experts at Honest Marijuana have put together a list of the 50 best movies to watch high. Inception is one of those movies that will blow your mind when you’re completely lucid. The Matrix trilogy is great to watch high, not for the quality of the movies, necessarily, but for the sheer wow-factor of the special effects. This movie is so absurd that the only way to truly enjoy it is to watch it high. We don’t have a lot of the stereotypical stoner movies on our list, but Up In Smoke is a must-see for all of you who want to know about weed culture before cannabis was legal. 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of those movies that can really only be understood while you’re high as a kite. 

The Fountain is one of those movies that you can only understand when you’re high. This movie is an experience in itself, but it’s even better shared with friends who are all high. Trippy costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier, crazy space action, and some great lines by Bruce Willis and Chris Tucker make this one of our go-to movies to watch high. Don’t let the trauma of high school dodgeball color your view of this hilarious movie. There’s very little humor in the movie Brazil, but the visuals alone are enough to blow your mind whether you’re sober or high. 

We like watching this movie while we’re high because of all the crazy action.

Denver Post: Mutiny Seeks Marijuana Consumption Permit

By JON MURRAY of DENVER POST. For Mutiny Information Cafe on Denver’s South Broadway strip, the city’s recently passed social marijuana use voter initiative could allow for once-a-month Saturday night gatherings that mix vaping, edibles and dancing. Other businesses are considering the possibilities opened up by the successful ballot measure, ranging from one-off events to allowing pot consumption areas on-site daily. The owner of a yoga and spinning studio on East Colfax is mulling the idea of occasional special events that might couple marijuana with meditation or Thai massage. Before The Rhythm Revolution’s Jasmine Anderson decides whether to even seek a new marijuana consumption permit, she – like others whose interest is piqued – wants to see more details about how it will work. 

That is the biggest question surrounding Initiative 300, which 53.6 percent of Denver voters approved Nov. 8. The city’s Department of Excise and Licenses has only begun sorting through a multitude of issues – from legal to regulatory to pragmatic – that will determine what the first-of-its-kind marijuana social use permit program looks like.

Why Hollywood And Marijuana Maintain A Stunted Flirtation

We’re four months into legal recreational marijuana in California and we’ve already seen a large ripple effect through the state, including expunging people’s marijuana convictions, exploring marijuana banks and lounges, and celebrities touting its benefits. As a collective, Hollywood hasn’t totally embraced marijuana. Stars remain at a distance from promoting any marijuana product and brand, as stigmas still surround cannabis. Aside from high heavyweights like Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and Whoopi Goldberg, who have been in the business of bud for a while, Hollywood has largely stayed away. MedMen is still struggling to sign an A-lister to front its growing national chain of dispensaries, while digital platform 420TV – founded by ex-WME agent Alex Nahai with an MTV DJ Quddus-hosted show and a comedy by former Simpsons animator David Silverman – continues searching for advertisers to sponsor it. 

Some believe the movements of cannabis as a luxe product and wellness brand will change opinions in Hollywood. Until that normalization takes hold, it looks like the stars and the leaf won’t be uniting anytime soon.

Nevada 1 of 5 states where gun suicides outnumber roadway deaths – Las Vegas Review-Journal

Nevada is one of five states in which gun suicides outnumber roadway deaths, according to a comparison of the most recently available statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In the same time span, gun suicides have risen to all-time highs. While Nevadans kill themselves by methods ranging from jumping from bridges and cliffs to drug overdoses, poisoning and hanging, more than 51 percent of suicides involve the use of a gun, according to the Nevada Office of Suicide Prevention. Nevada is one of 10 states where total gun deaths outnumbered traffic fatalities. 

Utah, Oregon, Washington and Alaska, gun suicides outweighed crashes. A combination of depression, gun accessibility and lack of mental health resources were also among the leading suicide factors cited by Dr. Ron Lawrence, founder of the Community Counseling Center of Southern Nevada. Teenage gun suicides accounted for less than 4 percent of the total. Males accounted for 86 percent of gun suicides across all age groups. 

As part of an initiative to build awareness for gun suicides, the Department of Suicide Prevention launched a statewide campaign with Nevada gun stores in 2012. The department leaves gun safety and suicide prevention brochures in stores and trains employees to intervene when a customer seems suicidal. The Range 702 and 2nd Amendment Gun Shop are among Las Vegas Valley gun shops participating in the campaign. Egan said a recent gun background check petition drive also could help cut down on suicides.

Unintended Consequences

‘Notice: Please be aware that, due to conflict between federal and state laws concerning the cultivation, distribution, manufacture, or sale of marijuana, the Company is not able to close, nor insure, any transaction involving property that is associated with these activities. This is a big deal, and I’m not at all sure many in the real estate industry are even aware of it yet. It means that a marijuana-growing operation, or establishment that ‘dispenses’ marijuana, cannot get title insurance for their property, making it nearly impossible to sell the property. Note that the clause above does not enumerate any kind of time limit! When you can’t get title insurance, you can’t get a loan! 

That landlord would probably be better-off if his property were contaminated with plutonium! In the interim, which probably includes the remainder of our lifetimes, significant risk will continue to attach,. About John Farnam & Defense Training International, IncAs a defensive weapons and tactics instructor John Farnam will urge you, based on your own beliefs, to make up your mind in advance as to what you would do when faced with an imminent lethal threat. You should, of course, also decide what preparations you should make in advance if any. Defense Training International wants to make sure that their students fully understand the physical, legal, psychological, and societal consequences of their actions or in-actions.

Canada unveils plans to legalise recreational marijuana

Canada has laid out its plan to legalise the sale of recreational marijuana by June 2018. If it passes, the country will be the largest developed nation to end marijuana prohibition. The law was tabled on Thursday, and would allow adults over 18 to possess up to 30g of dried marijuana. The former police chief had chaired the government’s cannabis task force, which laid out a blueprint for legal recreational pot in Canada. It would allow police to test people’s saliva if they think a driver has been using marijuana. 

Canada has some of the highest marijuana use in the world, according to the task force, especially amongst young people. The new framework would make it illegal to market marijuana products to children, or sell to anyone under 18. One thing her organisation has been pushing for is to have the sale of marijuana contained to government-controlled stores that enforce minimum pricing. Mr Goodale advised that, in the meantime, police will enforce existing marijuana laws. Many have been regularly raided by police and two prominent marijuana activists and retailers – Marc and Jodie Emery – were recently arrested and charged with a number of offences including drug trafficking. 

Medical marijuana has been legal in Canada since 2001 and is grown by 42 federally licensed producers. The medical marijuana framework would continue to operate under the new legislation, but licensed Canadian producers who grow for the medical marijuana market are already jockeying to enter the lucrative recreational retail sector.

At This Comedy Club, Getting High is in the Job Description – Medical Marijuana News

Cannabis encourages relaxation and creativity, not to mention that people who are high love to laugh. Seattle’s Gateway Show pairs up cannabis and comedy to create an unstoppable duo. Tonight, the show is being being held at Jai Thai, a Thai restaurant that hosts comedy four nights a week in Seattle’s Capitol Hill. The comedian has been featured on Comedy Central and had just flown up from L.A. to perform on the show. The Seattle faction of The Gateway Show receives sponsorship from Fweedom Cannabis and Tiller Natural, and their money goes a long way. Although many cannabis businesses undoubtedly wish to give back to the community, federal regulations make it very difficult for them to donate to charitable causes. Sponsoring local events like the comedy show allows businesses to support the artists and venues while also giving consumers a reason to buy their products. Even in legal states, cannabis consumers may feel threatened by widespread stigma and fear of arrest. Events like The Gateway Show are providing cannabis users with a place to seek entertainment and be honest about their interests without feeling subjected to judgment. If you’re lucky enough to live in one of these areas, make sure to support the cannabis movement by getting out of the house and encouraging local businesses and art.

Herbal and Marijuana Vaporizers For Smoking Marijuana

There are a lot of ways Marijuana and Cannabis are smoked. One of these methods is smoking marijuana with the use of vaporizer. Cannabis vaporizer works in transforming your weed from solid to gas and makes it good for smoking. Vaporizers are very common and the best for medical marijuana users as they remove the smell and taste of smoke when you inhale. The weed vapor which is produced by the vaporizer is much stronger than what you can get from using bong, pipe, rolling papers, or any other marijuana smoking methods. While there is not much great deal, if any, the smoke created by any other smoking supplies has nothing to do with the smoking technique that you use. There are many health benefits that you can get if you use vaporizer in smoking marijuana and cannabis instead of using the other methods. There are many name brands of herbal vaporizers that you can use for cooking pot instead of inhaling the smoke. Online headshops have many items for sale including marijuana seeds, bongs, pipes, hookahs and other instrument devices used for smoking weed. Yes, it is legal and not illegal to purchase vaporisers and other types of glass pipes used for smoking weed, smoking pot, smoking cannabis or any other tobacco product as long as when you buy it that it is for smoking tobacco for recreational use only.

Looking Through The Lens

This 37-year-old creates amazing mosaics using the humble medium of used roach papers from smoked joints. Amazingly, this is just something Cliff does in his spare time. It’s his roach paper Chronic Art that has captured the imagination of folks nationwide. As a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Cliff had the opportunity to take inspiration from the great mosaics of the past. His roach paper portraits include iconic rock star stoners like Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Garcia, and John Lennon, and hemped hop rap stars like Snoop Dogg and Method Man. All these followed his very first roach paper portrait, which was of Jesus. Cliff’s currently offering hand-signed and numbered, limited edition, museum quality prints of all his mosaics. The fantastic level of detail present in Cliff’s work is truly mind-boggling. When you start to grok how much time must have been spent fitting together all those sticky little bits of paper, cutting and arranging them in a way as to form a work of art, you have to admire this guy’s dedication. Maynard’s unique and phenomenal talent has turned the heads of numerous cannabis luminaries such as Cheech & Chong, Marc Emery, Todd McCormick, Rev. Eddy Lepp, and Vivian McPeak, all of whom totally freaked on the level of passion, skill and detail in Cliff’s work.

U.S. Marijuana Party

The United States Marijuana Party – is a motivated group of Americans who are tired of living in fear of their government because of marijuana prohibition. More Americans are in jail today for marijuana offenses than at any previous time in American history. The war against marijuana is a genocidal war waged against us by a government determined to eradicate our plant, our culture, our freedom and our political rights. We demand the release of all people imprisoned on marijuana charges and that their criminal records be expunged. We demand the right to grow marijuana for personal consumption, just as alcohol can be brewed at home legally and so long that it is not sold it should therefore remain untaxed. WE organize Marijuana Parties in states across the U.S. WE are striving hard to have all 50 states represented by Nov. 2020! WE plan to run candidates on the Marijuana Party ticket in local, state, and national elections, and to debate this issue whenever and wherever the opportunity arises! If you do not have a chapter of the US Marijuana Party in your area START ONE NOW! The U.S Marijuana Party operates solely from donations made by concerned citizens. You can start a Chapter or support the U.S. Marijuana Party in your State.
