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.

‘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.

EDGE Media Network :: Cancer Docs Feel Unprepared, but Recommend Marijuana Anyway

Nearly half of U.S. cancer doctors who responded to a survey say they’ve recently recommended medical marijuana to patients, although most say they don’t know enough about medicinal use. The results reflect how marijuana policy in some states has outpaced research, the study authors said. All 29 states with medical marijuana programs allow doctors to recommend it to cancer patients. Patients want to know what their doctors think about using marijuana. 

In the new study, cancer doctors said their conversations about marijuana were almost always started by patients and their families, not by the doctors themselves. Overall, nearly eight in 10 cancer doctors reported having discussed marijuana with patients or their families, with 46 percent recommending it for pain and other cancer-related problems to at least one patient in the past year. Marijuana is considered an illegal drug by federal officials and federal restrictions have limited research. Last year, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine concluded the lack of scientific information about marijuana poses a risk to public health. There’s evidence marijuana can treat chronic pain in adults and medications similar to marijuana can ease nausea from chemotherapy. 

In the study, 67 percent of cancer doctors said they view marijuana as a useful addition to standard pain therapies, with 75 percent saying it posed less risk of overdose than opioids. About half view marijuana as equal to, or more effective than, standard treatments for cancer-related nausea. Dr. Steven Pergam of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance answers questions about marijuana’s safety from his colleagues at the treatment center.

Decriminalization of Marijuana

Marijuana can have negative health effects when abused but more damage is done to our society by keeping marijuana illegal. More people are thrown in jail each year for possession of marijuana even though marijuana has proven no threat to society; therefore, it should be legal to buy or sell marijuana for recreational use. Hollywood stars are regularly accused of all types of drug use. Some movies such as Comedy Central’s Half Baked or the more classic Up In Smoke even base their plots around drugs for humorous antics. Some of these drugs can be highly addictive such as heroin and cocaine, leading to the hopeless addiction of its users. 

Others are considerably less harmful, less addictive than cigarettes, and do not invoke violent temperaments from its users like alcohol. Marijuana, the tried leaves of the Cannabis plant, is also known as Cannabis Sativa or Cannabis Indica, and I believe that marijuana has been wrongly categorized as a harmful and lethal drug throughout recent history. The city of El Paso moved swiftly and passed a ban on the possession of marijuana in The El Paso Ordinance of 1914. This first law that started it all was intended to be a way for the city to control marijuana; however the law was instead used to control the Mexicans. Most of the Americans were concerned about the rising addictions to opium, heroin, cocaine, and morphine. 

Though marijuana is much less destructive or addictive than those drugs, it was falsely given the same classifications and criminalized as though it were equally as dangerous. Harry Anslinger of the Department…..

NBC speeding up trend of revived comedy series

The network quickly swooped in after Fox dumped it last week, adding it to NBC’s midseason schedule. While the fan outcry was heartening, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said Sunday that because of business considerations, the pickup already was in the works. He said he believes it’s a better fit for NBC’s brand of comedy than it ever was for Fox. That’s left network executives scouring old cast lists for shows that can be brought back. SEASON KICKOFF. 

NBC says it will introduce five new dramas and two new comedies next season. It’s the only one of the four biggest broadcast networks with more viewers than last season, although that would not have been the case without the Winter Olympics and Super Bowl. Broadcast television’s schedule week is a whirlwind of star-studded presentations and parties for advertisers, who will use what they see to decide where to buy billions of dollars’ worth of commercial time. Twenty-five years ago, the decisions announced influenced the evening habits of millions more people. In those days, 71 percent of televisions in use during prime time were tuned to either ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox, the Nielsen company said. 

During last season, 40 percent of the TVs were watching those channels, along with other broadcasters like the CW, Univision and Telemundo, Nielsen said. All are products of television veteran Dick Wolf’s production studio. NEW THIS FALL. NBC’s schedule includes three series that will premiere in the fall.

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.

Marijuana Dispensaries

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. Chong’s career first started back in Calgary, where he began playing the guitar at 16 years-old. 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. 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.

Tommy Chong’s Here, Man! High Priest of Stoner Comedy Marks 80th Birthday

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 turned 80 on Thursday, May 24, 2018 – that’s right, 80 – he expects his Chong’s Choice brand of cannabis, 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 answered the door for a photo shoot at his longtime home in the hills overlooking L.A.’s wealthy Brentwood neighborhood, 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 polished 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 Scottish, 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.

Editorial: Correct call on marijuana

The decision isn’t without controversy, but city council was wise to ban the use of marijuana in public places. When the federal government legalizes cannabis later this summer, Calgarians won’t be able to smoke, vape or eat products made with the substance in public spaces, unless they’re a medical marijuana user. That’s led critics of the decision to complain that people who live in multi-family dwellings may not be able to use the drug. Evan Woolley said when the restriction was being discussed by council. Council is simply treating marijuana like we treat tobacco and liquor. 

Presumably, the people who won’t be able to smoke pot in their units, are already prevented from lighting up a cigarette indoors – just as they’re prevented from doing so in parks and other public areas. The ban on using marijuana in public is also justified because of its distinct, skunky smell. Public consumption is prohibited in all nine American states where cannabis is legal, including Colorado, California and Nevada. City council has instructed staff to explore the creation of designated cannabis smoking areas, so there’s still the possibility Calgarians who can’t use the drug indoors will have a place to light up in the future. Medical officer of health Dr. 

Brent Friesen made a good point when he said the bylaw should not stigmatize users, but it shouldn’t normalize marijuana use either. The doctor said it is essential not to create an environment where young people see adults smoking and vaping marijuana, thinking that it is the customary thing to do. Council made the right call in banning pot smoking in public.

NY Times find that marijuana arrests are heavily tilted toward blacks, Latinos

Even though marijuana is slowly being decriminalized around the country, in New York City, it’s still illegal and people are still getting arrested and booked by the dozen. More often than not, the people getting locked up tend to be Black and brown. The New York Times has found that while there have been changes in policy on weed, the easiest way to be arrested for marijuana possession is to be either Black or Latino. While this may not be shocking to generations of black and brown people, the number found by The Times bear out a stark reality. It is especially glaring when you look at how the arrest rates for marijuana possession differs depending on the section of New York City. 

In Queens, the marijuana arrest rate is more than 10 times as high in the precinct covering Queens Village as it is in precinct that serves Forest Hills. Queens Village just over half black, while Forest Hills has a tiny portion of black residents. In Manhattan, Black people were arrested at 15 times the rate of white people. In Brooklyn, officers in Canarsie, which is 85 percent Black, arrested people at a rate more than four times as high as in the precinct that includes Greenpoint-4 percent Black-despite residents calling to complain about marijuana at the same rate, police data show. Black neighborhoods traditionally have more officers, even as crime in New York City has gone down. 

What makes the marijuana arrests and disparities so troubling is that police are legally able to stop and search a person spotted smoking marijuana and check for open warrants, which is speculated to be the real reason for these arrests.
