Stoner Comedy True Buds TV: Weed Time Traveler

Tesla CEO Elon Musk Smokes Marijuana on Comedy Podcast

Elon Musk sipped whiskey and puffed a little weed while musing at length late Thursday about artificial intelligence, colonizing space, and the need to give love a chance. The Tesla entrepreneur shared thoughts on those topics and more during a podcast with comedian Joe Rogan that lasted more than two hours and stretched into Friday. Musk’s current endeavors include electric carmaker Tesla; private space exploration enterprise SpaceX; tunnel-drilling Boring Company, and a Neuralink operation working on augmenting human brains with artificial intelligence. During the course of a wide-ranging chat with Rogan, Musk drank whiskey and tried a marijuana-and-tobacco cigarette proffered by the comedian. He maintained that getting things accomplished, especially being useful to others, was among his joys. 

Musk said that when it comes to social media he only uses Twitter, and that is for its power to get messages out. He contended that he ignores the majority of negative comments at Twitter, but has occasionally been drawn in and made mistakes. Nearly 90,000 people tuned into the podcast Rogan live-streamed with Musk at YouTube. He had long argued that AI would be humanity’s undoing, with sentient software treating people, at best, like house cats. Musk is now of a mind that whatever the future of AI, it is outside of human control. 

A danger, he noted, is that humans will turn AI into a weapon to unleash on one another. Musk appeared to get emotional while talking about the harm being done to the atmosphere and oceans by burning fossil fuels.

Canadian Sketch Comedy Pokes Fun At Marijuana Worries At US Border

You could say that anxiety around cannabis at the U.S.-Canada border is at an all-time high. People are getting banned for life from the United States for revealing any association with the cannabis industry. Admitting past drug use could also get you banned for life. The show focuses on four main archetypes of characters who may have trouble crossing: cannabis investors, recreational users, a start-up associate, and obviously stoned teenagers. Legal adult-use cannabis sales will start Oct. 17 in Canada.

TORONTO, ON-In a move that is likely to revolutionize the marijuana-delivery industry in Canada, Shoppers Drug Mart has applied for a license to dispense marijuana, rather than having consumers simply acquire it from Shoppers cashier Tyler after he is done work. The benefits inherent in acquiring the license itself rather than simply having customers wait around for the end of Tyler’s shift or asking him to take a quick break will be many, Oakwood assures.

John Cleese caught talking about ‘marijuana caravans’ live on GMB

Monty Python actor John Cleese was caught in the act on live TV this morning. It all unfolded during John’s interview with hosts Charlotte Hawkins and Ben Shephard, who tried to start their segment but the actor was completely unaware they had returned from the advert break and were live on-air. John completely missed the cue and is heard saying: ‘There’s this extraordinary caravan which is powered almost entirely by marijuana or something. In the midst of uneasy laughter, Ben joked: ‘That’s how we should start an interview at all times. Realising what had happened, John suddenly broke into an awkward smile and swivelled around in his chair, almost like a school kid who’d been caught talking about something naughty. 

Seriously, we need to know more about those marijuana caravans, John. Reacting to John’s gaffe, a viewer tweeted: ‘You need your own whole show interview – 5 minutes wasn’t nearly enough. The trio managed to gloss over the awkward moment but not for long as the comedian later launched into a tirade about his plans to leave the ‘corrupt’ UK. Not holding back, John ranted: ‘I’m going to buzz off in November because I’m fed up of the corruption in this country. ‘In particular, with just how awful the newspapers are and the way they censor news so people in England don’t know certain things, particularly anything critical of them. ‘I don’t think you can run a democracy until you have reasonably reliable information out there to help people make up their mind how they’re going to vote. MORE: John Cleese is leaving the UK in November because he’s ‘fed up of corruption and awful newspapers’. 

MORE: John Cleese shocks R4 listeners with homophobic slur and explains why he’s ‘fed up’ with Britain.

THC-laced candy, bags of marijuana seized at WL FedEx facility

Police seized roughly 50 pounds of marijuana, cannabis derivatives, and marijuana-laced candy Friday that investigators said was shipped across the country using FedEx. According to a department press release, personnel at a FedEx facility in town noticed damaged boxes and, after checking the extent of the damage, discovered the drugs inside. An Illinois state law signed last year marks August 4 in honor of the 44th president. The former president served in the Illinois state Senate, before joining the U.S. Senate, and ultimately serving two terms as U.S.

Police Officers in Argentina say Mice ate missing Marijuana

Police officers in Argentina have claimed mice ate 540kg of marijuana which disappeared from a police warehouse, Guardian reports, adding that eight officers have been dismissed following the discovery. 6,000kg of marijuana has been in storage for 2 years, but when officers returned for inspection, only 5,460kg was found. It is suspected that former Police Commissioner Javier Specia had knowledge on how the drugs went missing as he had left the inventory for the impounded marijuana unsigned when he left his post in April 2017. Specia and 3 other officers have been called to testify before a judge on May 4. Specia’s successor Emilio Portero, noticed the reduction in the amount of marijuana and notified the force’s internal affairs division, who inspected the warehouse.

Marijuana Movies: The Top 10 Stoner Films

There is nothing like watching a bunch of funny celebrities have fun playing themselves. Three friends – Thursgood Jenkins, Scarface, and Brian – try to bail out their good friend, Kenny, who is in jail for accidentally killing a diabetic police horse by feeding it junk food. Harold played by John Cho leaves his office job for the weekend and hangs out with his stoner friend, Kumar played by Kal Penn. The most memorable scene has to be Kumar who has a dream about marrying a bag of weed. After finding out that their image is being used in an upcoming movie and they try to stop itor at least get paid off of it! 

The two get into some crazy situations after they befriend an animal liberation group and more. Smokey played by Chris Tucker and Craig played by Ice Cube are pretty much living the life when they find a dealer’s weed stash. It’s not all bad. Some of the students, including incoming freshman Mitch Kramer, go cruising, drink beer, and smoke weed together.

How TV Fell in Love With Marijuana

Americans kept doing drugs-in ever-increasing numbers-but sitcoms mostly stopped airing preachy episodes. Though marijuana use was still demonized on television as late as 1997, the drug was also treated with a new frankness in sitcoms like Roseanne, Home Improvement, and That ’70s Show. Henson expanded on her comments earlier this year in an interview with The Atlantic. If TV is a propagandistic device for pro-legalization advocates, it’s an enormously effective one. Age is a factor: A 2010 ABC study found that 81 percent of Americans support the legalization of medicinal marijuana, while the number drops to 23 percent for Americans aged 65 and older. 

Marijuana is more than fodder for sitcoms and cartoons. Perhaps the final sign of marijuana’s television growth comes with its appearance in the most ubiquitous of genres: reality television. In the past year, both The Discovery Channel and National Geographic have launched reality series based on the budding medicinal marijuana market. Weed Wars and American Weed offer something that no other series in TV history has offered: a glimpse into cannabis growth as a legal, legitimate business. As American cultural attitudes continue to shape-and be shaped by-depictions of marijuana, it’s hard to imagine that TV will ever go back.

Interview: Iliza Shlesinger talks Canada, cannabis and comedy

Her fourth and latest Netflix special ‘Elder Millennial’ was released this week, and her second movie ‘Instant Family’ with Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne premieres in early 2019. Last year she published her first book, ‘Girl Logic,’ and hosted a limited-run talk show on Freeform called ‘Truth & Iliza. See alsoHaving distinguished herself as the winner of NBC’s ‘Last Comic Standing’ in 2008, Iliza’s success comes well-earned with three previous specials under her belt. Iliza is performing a single show at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal this upcoming Friday – and those who have already watched her latest Netflix special can be assured that the live show is full of new material. Despite the quick stop this trip, Iliza has travelled to more places in Canada than most Canadians. 

Men are super manly, the women are beautiful, it’s super clean, there’s a lot of room and they’re very kind,’ so of course as Americans we make fun of something that secretly we wish we had more of. Iliza lives in California where cannabis has been legal at a state level for some time, so she’s unfazed by Canada’s cannabis legalization plans. When asked for advice on what Canadians should keep in mind come October 17, she simply suggests that they stay considerate of others. I grew up when it wasn’t legal so it feels like oddly taboo. She may be a weird stoned person, but she’s a very funny comic. ‘Elder Millennial’ is a slightly more mature departure from Iliza’s previous work, but she hasn’t lost her edge – she’s just proving that she’s can capably mould her talents however she sees fit. 

Iliza will also be performing at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver on October 13.

Why Marijuana Makes Things Funnier, Medically Speaking

About half of the U.S. population has personally experienced the effects of marijuana on the body’s delicate equilibrium. Maybe go to the gun range and just laugh and laugh, together! Marijuana obviously does change the way you think, but we don’t completely understand how. As a bonus, the same paper found that in most studies there were no actual structural differences between the brains of marijuana users and nonusers. 

Still, the better part of the answer is probably that marijuana elevates your entire mood and, thereby, inclines you to laugh more. Our generation is totally accustomed to this sort of instant gratification/very little work paradigm, so we’re like putty in the hands of marijuana salespeople. So you’re in a great mood, your brain has you feeling like you’re in love and on top of the world, and you didn’t even have to try hard to feel that way – of course you’re going to be inclined to laugh and be generally merry. Marijuana causes this reflexive laughter, like how you laugh when someone is tickling you, even if nothing is being perceived as funny. In closing, this seems like a pretty simple explanation for why you’d be inclined to laugh more and find things funnier when you’re high. 

Plus, there may be other strange sensory issues at play, like whatever is behind the fact that people on marijuana will reliably report that colors are brighter and music is more vivid. Also there is at least a correlation between marijuana use and mental illness, including earlier onset of schizophrenia. If you’re using marijuana and noticing problems with your mood, relationships, health, job, etc.

Kevin Smith needs fans’ help for new weed comedy Hollyweed

New Jersey native, filmmaker, Kevin Smith signs autographs for fans at his comic book store Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. Highlands native filmmaker Kevin Smith wants to get a new series made, and he needs your help. Fans and potential backers can view the series’ previously unreleased 2016 pilot episode at rivitTV, and then decide if they’d like to pledge their support for a six-episode season at a cost of $1.99 to $5.99 per episode. WEED, GRASS, REEFER: Check out the 350+ names the DEA has for marijuana. California became the latest state to sell legal weed for recreational purposes in January, joining states like Colorado, Nevada, Washington and Oregon that adopted marijuana legalization in the past few years. 

HIGH HOPES: Legal weed changed everything in Colorado & California. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has made marijuana legalization a priority and lawmakers expect to sign a legal weed bill this year, though progress largely stalled during the budget process. Over the last 10 years, Smith has become an outspoken marijuana user and marijuana legalization advocate. Last month, he credited weed with saving his life during his February heart attack, as the drug kept him calm. 

In addition to his work as a filmmaker, podcaster and author, Smith is also the proprietor of Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash comic book shop in Red Bank.(Watch a video of Smith’s most recent Red Bank appearance in the player at the top of this story.

Jason Sklar on High Culture in Comedy, John Elway’s Horse Teeth, His Newest Comedy Project

Unless you’re a knowledgable comedy fan or watched a lot of Cheap Seats on ESPN Classic during the early 2000s, you may not recognize the Sklar brothers by name. The six-hour special includes more than forty minutes in Denver and Boulder, where the Sklars visited local landmarks like Casa Bonita, Comedy Works and Ballpark Holistic Dispensary. To find out more about how the brothers enjoyed the Mile High City’s skunky characteristics and how its comedy scene stacks up nationally with other cities, Westword sat down with Jason Sklar to talk about the brothers’ time in Denver. Jason Sklar: First of all, there’s a great comedy scene there. I want every other comedy club owner in the country to come to Denver for a couple weeks and watch how they run those clubs, who they book and how they set up the club. 

It’s why so many comedians record their albums in Denver. I think high culture certainly lends itself to comedy. I don’t know that I can really tell the whole audience is high, but I do think that culture is another positive in the corner of comedy when you think about Denver. Our shows all sell out in Denver now, and that’s just a great feeling. That’s why there’s so many great angles to dig into when you’re in Denver. 

The weed laws are really interesting, and we liked trying to understand how that culture changed Denver for the better and for the worse. It’s like something people in Denver are simultaneously proud and embarrassed about, and those are comedy goldmines.

(Weed) Marijuana Legal In India | Sorry For The Interruption | Comedyone

‘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.

Is Weed Legal in New York? Bill de Blasio Orders End to Marijuana Arrests

As New York City continues to grapple with a justice system that disproportionately punishes people of color for marijuana-related crimes, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has told the NYPD to stop arresting people for smoking marijuana in public. A source at City Hall told CNN that de Blasio made the request over the weekend, as his administration continues to look for ways to improve how the city polices marijuana-related drug charges. Summons or not, it’s unknown if the change would deter police officers from searching people on the suspicion that they possess marijuana. Marijuana is in a something of a legal limbo in the state of New York. Medical marijuana is legal for those with qualifying conditions, but only in non-smokable forms. 

As more and more states have moved to legalize marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes, NY’s own Senator Chuck Schumer recently threw his weight behind a federal bill that would decriminalize marijuana use. Preparing for the InevitablePerhaps eyeing this nation-wide trend, de Blasio’s new initiative also follows an investigation by the New York Times, published May 13, that showed how heavy-handed marijuana charges have disproportionately affected people of color across the city. According to data gathered by The Times, over the past three years, black people were arrested on low-level charges for marijuana eight times more often than white people. Specifically in Manhattan, black people were arrested at 15 times the rate of white people. Last week, Mayor de Blasio announced that the NYPD has formed a working group that will present recommendations on changing marijuana enforcement tactics within 30 days. 

According to the New York Daily News on Monday, de Blasio is also putting together a task force to get ready for full legalization. It will be tasked with providing recommendations on issues like public education campaigns about marijuana use, how police will interact with public smokers, and zoning for dispensaries.

Marijuana Intoxication Blamed In More Deaths, Injuries « CBS Denver

In an autopsy report that had never been made public before, but was obtained by CBS4, his THC level – the active ingredient in marijuana – was measured at 38.2 nanograms. Up until now, just three other deaths in Colorado were seen as having links to marijuana. Levy Thamba Pongi, a 19-year-old college student jumped from a Denver balcony to his death in 2014 after eating marijuana edibles. Marijuana intoxication was listed as a factor in his death. The Juarez case adds another to the list of death cases with links to marijuana. 

CBS4 found another Colorado death with strong ties to recreational marijuana. His older sister, Tori Castagna, told CBS4 she now believes marijuana impairment led her brother to make poor decisions the night of his death. Dr. Chris Colwell, Chief of Emergency Medicine at Denver Health Medical Center, said since the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado, he has seen more and more cases like these of people who have ingested marijuana making poor decisions, decisions they would not otherwise make. Colwell said several times each week people enter the Denver Health emergency department after ingesting marijuana and acting suicidal. 

Colwell said his ER is seeing more and more of the same issues from marijuana that it has historically seen from alcohol. Marijuana activists call these kinds of stories scare tactics and say the problems associated with marijuana ingestion are infinitesimal when compared to alcohol and prescription drugs. In Boulder, eight years after her son’s death, Ann Clark believes her son’s own words show that marijuana led him to kill himself.

Death Prophecy | Marijuana Prophet | Pillow Talk TV comedy web series

A: Licensed medical marijuana dispensaries that have state and local approval can start selling their products as recreational starting Saturday. In February, the city enacted a six-month moratorium on recreational marijuana licenses, meaning the five medical dispensaries within Henderson’s city limits will have to wait a while longer before joining the market. A: Only adults 21 and older and medical marijuana cardholders can purchase marijuana. A: There is no difference between medical and recreational marijuana in Nevada. Recreational marijuana is subject to a 10 percent special sales tax, with those revenues rebuilding the state’s rainy day fund. 

A: You can carry up to an ounce of marijuana and ounce of concentrate, and that’s the same amount you’ll legally be able to buy. Edibles tend to produce a longer and stronger high than smoked marijuana, and new packaging laws in Nevada reflect that potency. Marijuana use is banned on the Strip and on all gaming properties in the state. Tourists can’t smoke marijuana in hotel rooms or anywhere on resorts’ grounds. Not even passengers can smoke or consume marijuana in a vehicle under Nevada law. 

A: A judge ruled that liquor distributors should have exclusive rights to transport marijuana from cultivation facilities to dispensaries. For reference, an ounce of dried marijuana flower produces about 40 to 60 cigarettes, depending on your rolling preference.

Is Smoking Weed Around Dogs Dangerous?

It started when I wrote a few blog posts about what to do if your dog breaks into a stash of marijuana. At around the same time, I also composed a comprehensive website with 100 articles on dog and cat diseases, syndromes and treatments. I talk about canine marijuana intoxication in a straightforward and nonjudgemental way; this has unfortunately led some folks to the misconception that I endorse getting dogs stoned. The good news is that, unless an animal is confined in a room with extreme amounts of smoke, inhaling secondhand marijuana smoke is not likely to lead to intoxication. The bigger concern here is the smoke itself. 

Dogs have exquisitely sensitive lungs, and smoke can damage them. If the dog is around smoking – whether that’s weed or cigarettes – every day, his respiratory function can be compromised. On the other hand, if the person doing the smoking does not go overboard, doesn’t smoke every day and keeps a window open while smoking, it is not likely that much harm will come to the dog – from the smoke at least. Bear in mind that although I’ve never seen a dog die from marijuana intoxication, I have seen dogs die as a direct result of their owners getting stoned. The owner’s boyfriend got stoned and decided to hang out on his apartment building’s roof with the dog. 

Remember that situations involving dogs and marijuana can end poorly. Please don’t smoke anything around your dog.

Bill de Blasio announces new NYC marijuana enforcement policy

Starting on September 1, a new marijuana enforcement policy will go into effect in New York City. Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner James O’Neill announced on Tuesday that the NYPD will issue summonses rather than arrest most New Yorkers caught smoking weed in public. Exceptions, as CBS reports, would include people on parole or probation, those with existing criminal warrants or a recent documented history of violence, people without identification, and those whose smoking constitutes a public safety risk, like people smoking behind the wheel of a car. De Blasio called for the change in policy in May as part of taking steps towards the likely eventual legalization of marijuana in the city, and in reaction to data around the arrest rates of people of color for marijuana charges in white vs minority neighborhoods. He says he expects to reduce arrests by 10,000 per year as a result. 

Health Commissioner Howard Zucker says a report recommending the legalization of marijuana in the state is nearing completion. If the governor backs the report’s recommendation, it would complete an extraordinary shift for the Democrat. It also would put him on the same page as Cynthia Nixon, the actress and activist who is challenging Cuomo for the Democratic nomination from the political left. It would align New York with a growing number of states that have legalized marijuana.

Families Coping With Autism Claim Medical Marijuana Is Lifesaver « CBS Denver

DENVER- A bill has passed a Colorado House committee that would legalize the use of medical marijuana for those with autism. With a quick spray,10-year-old Vincent takes his medical marijuana. A video posted by the group Mothers Advocating Medical Marijuana for Autism shows a girl named Kara hitting her head repeatedly against a car seat. Once she is given the marijuana she appears much calmer. So too with Vincent, who legally qualifies for medical marijuana now in Colorado because of the seizures he suffers from epilepsy. 

He was at the state Capitol with others on behalf of a bill that would make marijuana legal for all who have autism. The Walkers moved to Colorado from Texas to take advantage of medical marijuana. Scott Walker is a big advocate of the push to legalize medical pot for autism. Vincent’s cannabis includes a small amount of the psychoactive compound THC. They say his seizures are gone. 

Scott said Vincent was saying phrases he never said in Texas. Given what we know about the harmful effects of marijuana use on brain development, sanctioning the use of medical marijuana for autism and autism spectrum disorders could be particularly harmful to children. Finally, the constitution explicitly directs rule-making authority to the department and the Board of Health to determine what medical conditions are appropriate for medical marijuana treatment.

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.

Medical Marijuana: A Personal Perspective Providence, Rhode Island Motif Magazine

Recreational marijuana and medical marijuana are the same plant, but when it comes to application there is a great divide. Most people don’t really understand how medical marijuana works – unless you are on a MM program yourself, to get the real story you need to talk to someone who is. Sal: Now that I’ve found the right balance of CBD to THC, I need very little – literally one hit three times a day. Sal: At the compassion centers, they have the CBD and THC percentages on everything they sell. Marijuana was seen purely as a street drug, smoked by hippies and clubbers. 

Sal: I feel a lot more pain, in my joints and in my gut. Motif: One use of MM that people are familiar with is for nausea from chemotherapy. Sal: A friend of mine recently had a lung removed and went through chemo. Sal: I’d say doubters should talk with some nurses at a cancer treatment center or with someone managing a chronic autoimmune disorder. People who use MM don’t use it to get high, although it does make us feel better. 

Sal: MM is a gift – for people who are suffering, it can literally give them back their lives. It’s going to be interesting to see how the recreational and medical realities of marijuana are going to play out as legalization spreads.
