DUKE AND CAT SHOW MEDICAL MARIJUANA COMEDY SKIT FROM 1/2010

7 celebrities looking to cash in on the cannabis industry

As one half of the comedy duo Cheech & Chong, Tommy Chong lampooned countless stoner stereotypes in a series of successful films and comedy albums. He also spent some time in prison more than a decade ago for selling marijuana pipes and bongs online. Now, Chong – who recently competed on the reality show Dancing with the Stars – is back in the pot business with Tommy Chong’s Smoke Swipe, a line of dry clothing wipes meant to eliminate the odor of marijuana or tobacco smoke from smokers’ clothes. There could be more coming from Chong, who is reportedly developing his own branded cannabis strain.

17 Stoner Shows Disguised As Children’s Programs

These are the ingredients for a solid children’s TV show, destined to entice and hopefully teach them something about the alphabet or sharing. They also happen to be what makes for an ideal stoner show. Co-eds holed up in college dorm rooms, teenagers giggling along with their little cousins and millenials taking in the nostalgic montage of their ’90s childhood have become equally addicted to the TV shows designed for kids.

Louis Johnson – Experimenting with Marijuana – Comedy Works

Chalice music & marijuana festival postponed for four months

Issues with Victorville City Council not welcoming the cannabis culture to their city. Chalice Festival’s unwillingness to thrown an event that does not meet our brand’s standards. We bring over 30 million to the areas we throw events. As a culture we should not grace anti-cannabis areas with the positive impact that our events bring. Our main focus is to professionally handle and address the people who have tickets to Chalice, the vendors, the sponsors, the people who make the event what it is. 

Every person who has ever been to one of our events or. In December, we were first in line to be issued a cannabis event promoter license, which gives us the right to throw up to 10 events a year. The law said for each event we need a temporary event license issued by the bureau of cannabis control. The BCC denied my application due to the city of Victorvilles disapproval of cannabis activity in their jurisdiction. We throw our event on compliant state property and are fully entitled to the BCC issuing us our retail sales license for the event. 

While we pursue our state claim, the city of Victorville needs to hear our voices of protest! We have a city council meeting today at 530 in Victorville! Come out and support! Particularly, the legal opinion prevented the city from green-lighting the marijuana-themed art and music event because it conflicted with a city ordinance, in effect since Dec. 7, that forbids most commercial cannabis activity within city limits, Jones said.

Louisville mulls changing city marijuana regulations

Louisville leaders are considering a series of changes to the city’s marijuana regulations. While Louisville City Council members have expressed agreement on issues such as increasing the allowable size of dispensaries from 2,000 square feet to 5,000 and removing the restriction that limits the total number of pot shops to four, they differ on whether to allow grow operations to open up shop in certain industrial areas. Mayor Pro-Tem Jeff Lipton was a vocal supporter of allowing marijuana cultivation when the topic of revamping regulations was raised during a discussion at Tuesday’s council meeting. Councilwoman Ashley Stolzmann and Councilman Dennis Maloney took a similar view of the matter. Some Louisville city leaders remain staunchly against allowing grow operations. 

Muckle questioned the need to change city code as it relates to commercial pot growing. Councilman Jay Keany also spoke out against cultivation, arguing grow operations do not typically provide a huge tax revenue windfall for cities, nor do they add a significant number of jobs to the local economy. Muckle and Keany also opposed any changes to city regulations that would allow dispensaries to open in the downtown area. Louisville officials have instructed city staffers to continue studying issues related to pot regulations and bring forth a draft ordinance at an upcoming council meeting to address cultivation, dispensary size and location, and the number of pot shops permitted.

Cheech Marin

Nationality: United StatesExecutive summary: The stoned half of Cheech and Chong. Marin was a counterculture cut-up who went to college in the 1960s to sidestep the draft, then moved to Canada to escape it. Their 1971 comedy album was beloved by pot-smoking high school and college kids everywhere, and they eventually wrote and starred in such reefer-themed motion pictures as Up In Smoke, Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie, and Still Smokin’. While remaining on good terms, Cheech & Chong stopped performing together in 1985. Sans Chong, Marin wrote, directed, and starred in the deportation comedy Born In East L.A.

In 1992, he won the first celebrity tournament on Jeopardy, and in his spare time, he volunteers for the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and serves on the Inner City Arts Council. He is also a collector of Hispanic art, and markets his own hot sauce. In 2004, while Chong was imprisoned for selling bongs, Marin accepted an award on Chong’s behalf from Comedy Central, for Best Comedian Behind Bars.

Seeing Green: Celebrities Selling Marijuana « CBS Chicago

CHICAGO – Recreational marijuana is still against the law in 41 states. A number of celebrities with their own brands to sell are seeing green all the same. Hollywood has long been addicted to a good marijuana joke. Now he’s legit – selling a line of organically-grown cannabis called Chong’s Choice. Chong’s Choice is for sale in six states, and as with any other product, name recognition matters. 

With marijuana sales expected to reach $8-10 billion by the end of this year, and projected to double to $20 billion by 2022, more celebs are investing money and lending their names to get a foothold in this growing market. He says celebrities such as Chong, Willie Nelson, Snoop Dog and even Whoopi Goldberg are helping marijuana go mainstream. Grammy-winning artist Melissa Etheridge is getting in on the act, from the ground up; she calls 47 acres in California’s Santa Cruz Mountains Etheridge Farms. Etheridge says she discovered the healing power of marijuana during painful chemotherapy sessions after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. For Etheridge, pot isn’t just about getting high; it’s about getting healthy – and, she says, the product grown here will have strict standards. 

There are even edible products, like gingersnap weed cookies and other baked goods. Etheridge Farms is not yet up-and-running, but she hopes that putting the Etheridge name on her products will lead to more people experiencing a higher level of relaxation.

Georgia Senate approves medical marijuana law expansion to include AIDS

Pending the governor’s signature, Georgia AIDS patients now have access to medical marijuana. Senate Bill 16 passed the Senate this morning with a vote of 45 to 6. It’s a compromise version of the original House Bill 65, authored by Rep. Allen Peake, and expands the number of patients eligible to participate in the Georgia Low THC Cannabis Oil Registry. Sen. 

Ben Watson, who authored SB 16, spoke at the well on behalf of the legislation, and made a public plea to the federal government, the Food and Drug Administration and the Drug Enforcement Agency to continue expanding access to medical marijuana to those who require it. In addition to covering AIDS, SB 16 adds Tourette’s syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, epidermolysis bullosa, Alzheimer’s disease and peripheral neuropathy as instances in which Georgians can have access to the low THC cannabis oil. THC, the shorthand for tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana. Peake told Georgia Voice that Georgia’s law caps at 5 percent THC oil because that provides therapeutic benefit for a wide range of illnesses without causing the high associated with recreational use of marijuana. Georgians who can obtain the low THC oil must overcome multiple hurdles to do so. 

The main one, Peake said, is where to get the product. Because medical cannabis is not legal in all 50 states, patients are then risking federal law by transporting a controlled substance across state lines. Update 3:50 p.m.: Peake took to Twitter to praise the senators who voted in favor of SB 16 and called on voters to remember how the senators voted on the bill if/when they run for statewide office. Grateful to 45 senators who voted Yes on #medicalcannabis Many will be running for state office, remember their vote OR non-vote #gapol pic.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. Continues International Expansion with Distribution in Bermuda – Cannabistical: of or concerning cannabis.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. subsidiary HempMeds® announces partnership with Bermuda pharmacy to sell RSHO CBD products on the island. HempMeds® has partnered with Northshore Pharmacy in Bermuda to sell the company’s flagship Real Scientific Hemp Oil CBD oil products in their store. This partnership will make it easier than ever before for consumers to access CBD products in Bermuda. CBD products are considered a non-prescription product in Bermuda, meaning that customers on the island looking to purchase it do not need to visit a doctor first. 

A British Overseas Territory, Bermuda is self-governing, with its own constitution and its own government. The pharmacy is located in the Northshore Medical & Aesthetics Center, which was created to help the people of Bermuda improve their physical, visual, mental, and sexual health with a range of health service offerings by expert physicians and healthcare workers. Because it is part of a larger medical services facility, Northshore Pharmacy receives increased foot traffic, increasing the number of consumers who will encounter RSHO products on the pharmacy’s shelves. The entire Bermuda market consists of a growing population of over 65,000 people. HempMeds®’ entry into the Bermuda market is part of Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s larger international expansion efforts. 

HempMeds® was the first company to distribute CBD products in a number of markets, including Puerto Rico, Brazil, Mexico, and Paraguay. Medical Marijuana, Inc. portfolio company Kannaway recently hosted its largest event ever to celebrate its successful soft launch into the European Union market. HempMeds® is excited to make RSHO CBD products available to the residents of Bermuda.

As we write this, cannabis-infused soaps, lotions, shampoos, perfumes, and other assorted beautifying potions are piled high all around us. Pro-pot day spas are also helping to advance marijuana’s makeover. The LoDo Massage Studio in Denver and Renu Day Spa in Deerfield, IL, both incorporate cannabis-spiked creams into their most popular body treatments. LoDo’s Mile High Massage elevates a basic Swedish rubdown with a hit of pain-relieving lotion laced with tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol – two of the most potent active chemicals made by the Cannabis sativa plant. Both are known for their analgesic and anti-inflammatory powers – THC, of course, is responsible for weed’s inebriating effects. 

To answer everyone’s burning question: No, cannabis creams cannot get you high. Editor-in-chief Elaine D’Farley says the growing support for marijuana legalization and an increased awareness of the potential benefits of cannabis are the driving forces behind this movement. As it stands, Colorado, Alaska, Oregon, Washington state, and Washington, D.C., have green-lit recreational use of pot; 23 states allow some form of medicinal use. With more legalization initiatives on the 2016 ballot, many more states could follow suit later this year. CBD has anxiety-quelling, antibacterial, even cancer-killing properties. 

Despite all the buzz, our understanding of cannabis and the ways it can benefit our skin, hair, and senses has been hazy at best…until now. Ahead, we call on dermatologists, cosmetic chemists, perfumers, botanists, even a couple of neuroscientists and psychopharmacology researchers to enlighten us on the age-old ingredient when it comes to makeup, fragrance, skin, and hair care.

Cancer docs feel unprepared, but recommend marijuana anyway – The Denver Post

SEATTLE – 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.

While still a significant reform, it often doesn’t address prior marijuana convictions and does little to reduce illicit sales. So with legalization in limbo, pro-cannabis lawmakers introduced a bill to expunge the criminal record of anyone with a minor marijuana conviction, which means that for more than 1,000 people, Delaware could clear past minor marijuana convictions from records. Minor marijuana convictions can come with major, long-term consequences. While the future of legal weed there is still unclear, clearing prior marijuana convictions is a major step toward progressive criminal justice reform. Visit the GYO Seedbank Comedy Club and turn that frown upside down with some amazingly giggly marijuana strains! 

YG Entertainment released an official statement regarding G-Dragon’s having been caught smoking marijuana. Last July, G-Dragon received investigation by the prosecutor’s office due to suspicion of smoking marijuana. G-Dragon confidently accepted the investigation because he had not smoked marijuana and went through with his schedule as usual. The first reason was because his test result was a weak positive, and the second was that G-Dragon had not deliberately smoked marijuana.
