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.

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.

8 TV Shows to Watch High on Netflix

Sometimes there’s just nothing better then packing a bowl, putting your feet up and turning on something awesome to watch while you unwind from your day. This show started out as a podcast and is hosted by comedian/writer Scott Aukerman with band-leader and vocal artist Reggie Watts. It’s like a late night talk show with every episode featuring a guest comedian on the couch. If you haven’t seen Archer yet, now is your chance. A 13-part television series produced in 1978 and presented by Carl Sagan. 

This man was a true visionary who will take you on a journey through the cosmos, with each episode dedicated to a different aspect. Samuel L. Jackson is the voice of the Afro Samurai; who is on a mission to avenge the death of his father. Doctor Who first appeared on BBC television in 1963 and there are episodes still being made to this day. The show aired from 1963-1989 and then started again in 2005. 

An animated show with H. Jon Benjamin voicing as Bob. A truly underrated television series that Netflix actually picked up so they could air their fourth season. Set in Newport Beach, California, the show centers around the dysfunctional, spoiled Bluth family who insist on living extravagant lifestyles despite the fact they are now broke; and the one son trying to keep them together.

CNN’s Gupta apologizes for misleading public on marijuana, but doesn’t say ‘legalize it’

In a long mea culpa and apparently equally long documentary to come on Sunday, CNN’s chief medical correspondent – Doctor Sanjay Gupta – says he was part of misleading the public about the evils of marijuana. What he doesn’t say, at least not overtly, is what the social remedy should be. Gupta responds that he tried cannabis and doesn’t see marijuana as in the same camp as cocaine or alcohol when it comes to addiction but again doesn’t say what the social remedy should be. I didn’t review papers from smaller labs in other countries doing some remarkable research, and I was too dismissive of the loud chorus of legitimate patients whose symptoms improved on cannabis. He doesn’t then say: These are the reasons I would vote yes on pot. 

Another interesting suggestion he makes in the article is that the DEA didn’t have the science to make marijuana out to be such a dreaded drug. I mistakenly believed the Drug Enforcement Agency listed marijuana as a schedule 1 substance because of sound scientific proof. They didn’t have the science to support that claim, and I now know that when it comes to marijuana neither of those things are true. I’ll look for clarification from the good doctor, but I imagine getting an email through to him will take some time.

Eddie Griffin backs up Colorado legalizing Marijuana | Eddie Griffin News #9

Weed is not your typical marijuana documentary, and that is exactly why it is worth checking out. It was made by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, as a special report for CNN. The fact that CNN covered the topic of weed is in and of itself groundbreaking, and shows how attitudes have started to change regarding using weed. In the documentary, Dr. 

Gupta meets with several different medical marijuana patients, exploring how weed helps them to feel better. It also looks at how difficult it is for these patients to receive the medicine they need, and how this is a result of the War on Drugs. Beyond this, Dr. Gupta also explains some of the impact that marijuana has on the brain and how usage differs between regular smokers and those who are new to smoking. This is one of the newest, most credible, and best documentaries on the medical necessity of marijuana, and one worth checking out now. 

As marijuana use and legalization becomes more mainstream, we will see more and more information and misinformation arise about marijuana use. It can be hard to get a clear viewpoint on the research, the facts, and the myths. The films above are the best marijuana documentaries because take us through the process of understanding the history, the benefits, the medicine and the legality behind marijuana use, and are a great place to start to start exploring.

CACHEXIA & WASTING TREATMENT AND SYMPTOMS

Limit necessary food intake because of nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite. Hormonal and metabolic problems in protein synthesis and growth. Wasting patient response to standard pharmaceutical treatments and strategies is remarkably poor. Medical Marijuana, on the other hand is rapidly gaining a reputation as being, by far the best treatment available for Cachexia. Some of the most commonly prescribed drugs are, in fact synthetically derived THC. 

However, most experienced Doctors find that natural MMJ with a balanced Cannabinoid profiles work substantially better than synthetic isolates. Through personal choice, trial and error – patient’s agree with researchers and pick organic herb over synthetics, hands down. Growth Hormone and Steroids: Go to a medical doctor experienced in sports medicine. Margaret Haney, PhD, Associate Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at Columbia University found that the effects of synthetic and herbal marijuana were comparable. In a clinical setting, patient’s appetite improved, gained weight and slept better in comparison with placebo. 

We provide patients with the legal paperwork so they may use, possess and grow Medical Cannabis in the State of California. You fill out a form, type in personal info and brief medical history – takes a few minutes. A doctor is on standby to evaluate your application – is completed same day.

Comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim take deadpan jokes verging on the bizarre, combine them with celebrity guest appearances and cheesy video effects and it equals one winner of a show for anybody stoned out of their gourd. It doesn’t need a description due to its popularity, but here we go. The main character, Peter Griffin, recites tasteless jokes for a half-hour and if you don’t laugh you really need to change your ‘tude, dude. Dave Chappelle made a movie called Half Baked of course, he makes the list. The three main characters of this show hail from Canada and live in a trailer park. 

The show is so popular they’ve appeared on the cover of High Times as well as making a guest appearance on the GGN Network, Snoop Dogg’s internet channel/stoner show! Anyway, the show will just make you laugh you rear end off. This awesome show has been around for years and is loved by everyone.

Alcohol and Drugs: Untimely Celebrity Deaths

The tragic loss of a renowned celebrity or athlete to a drug or alcohol-related death is an event that often leaves many unanswered questions. Famous and much-loved celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Heath Ledger have been the victims of such unfortunate circumstances. While many deaths may be due to misuse of illegal substances, these drugs are not always illicit – and an overdose may not always be intentional. Death due to drugs can also be the result of mixing prescribed medications with other drugs, alcohol, over-the-counter medications or even herbal supplements. Drug-drug interactions may also play a role in drug-related deaths. 

The consumption of multiple central nervous system depressants, such as opioid pain killers, sedatives, hypnotics, or alcohol may lead to an unintentional overdose due to severely depressed breathing. Mixing illicit, prescription or over-the-counter medications can be dangerous, and patients should always rule out drug interactions with their healthcare provider. The use of prescription medications with illegal drugs or alcohol can produce an unpredictable and fatal response, and many deaths due to such circumstances may have been preventable. The following table outlines the death of notable celebrities and athletes who have had drugs or alcohol implicated in their deaths.

(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.

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.

Acting Classes Los Angeles & Santa Monica

Most experienced actors are placed in a Comedy Intensive after an Intro Work Session. Comedy Intensives meet either three consecutive Mondays, Wednesdays, or Saturdays. After completing the Comedy Intensive, our four week Technique Clinic is the next step. Examining drama as well as comedy, we further develop and expand upon the skills introduced in the Comedy Intensive. Clinic classes meet once a week for four consecutive weeks and are taught by LK&Co. 

While the Intensive is largely about what we have to teach you, and the Clinic is half what we have to teach you and half what is specifically going on with you and your acting, the Ongoing classes are pretty much all about you. Utilizing currently casting film and television material, Ongoing classes cover every aspect of the actor’s career. Ongoing classes meet once per week for three, four or five weeks, depending on the month. While our Essentials, Intensives, Clinics, and Ongoing acting classes focus aggressively on your acting-related issues, many of you quietly suffer from vocal issues that keep you from booking work even when your acting is superb. For several years we’ve been promoting Matt Beisner’s voice classes, and now we are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with his VOICE CLUB! 

in order to offer classes that focus specifically on vocal production! You will learn a daily, ten to twelve minute vocal warm-up consisting of 21 detailed, physical exercises that will enable you – once and for all – to effortlessly create beautiful sound through the release of your breath. While actors often see changes almost immediately, the exercises do take some time to take hold – most people have years of poor vocal habits. The Acting Essentials class meets twice a week for eight weeks, and is taught by LK&Co.

Tommy Chong reflects on pot’s evolution as he turns 80

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 turns 80 on Thursday – that’s right, 80 – he expects his Chong’s Choice brand of marijuana, 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. 

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 answers the door for a photo shoot at his longtime home in the hills overlooking L.A.’s wealthy Brentwood section, 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 polishes off a breakfast of oatmeal topped with sliced banana. In recent years, he’s become a vegetarian, although he backslides. Chong, whose father emigrated from China before World War II, mostly identifies culturally as Chinese, although he’s equally proud of his Scotch, 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.

70’s Comedy Record about Marijuana

Where Are They Now?

The comedy wonder spent a lot of time as a boy riding his bicycle back and forth in his neighborhood along El Prado Boulevard near Manhattan Avenue. His dad owned a skating rink on North Armenia Avenue just north of Osborne and that’s where he spent lots of his time early on. Comedian Gallagher as he appeared in the 1964Plant High SchoolYearbook…. He graduated from Plant High School in 1964 and pursued a degree in chemical engineering at the University of South Florida. Dozens of companies turned him down for employment, including The Tampa Tribune despite a good word on his behalf from Zappone with the personnel people. 

Stauffer Chemical Company finally put him to work but a series of tasteless jokes coupled with his keener interest in show business earned him a pink slip. In the 80’s, he used his own money to videotape a dozen one-hour comedy programs he sold to HBO, The Comedy Channel, and home video distributors. He now lives in Palm Beach with his wife but returns to Tampa often to share watermelon with family members who still live in the area. I never used my own money for my Showtime specials and I was never on HBO. I worked for Florida Nitrogen later Kaiser Agricultural Chemicals as their chief chemist when Jan C. 

Uterwick left to run his dad’s worldwide shipping company in downtown Tampa. My guidance councellor who later worked as an executive for Tampa Electric helped mediate the situation before graduation night. I worked for the coach who I visit with each time I return to town. I worked as a chemist until I graduated not after, then I went to Los Angeles where I was hired by Allied Chemical to work as a salesmen out of Chicago. Jim Stafford let me get up late at night in clubs where he worked like the Elbow Room on Longboat Key to practice it.

State issues first marijuana license, steady flow predicted

BOSTON – State regulators voted unanimously Thursday to grant the state’s first recreational marijuana business license to a marijuana grower in Milford. The license approved by the Cannabis Control Commission on Thursday will allow Sira Naturals to grow between 10,001 and 20,000 square feet of marijuana at their indoor facility at 13 Commercial Way in Milford. Sira Naturals already grows marijuana for medical patients at its Milford cultivation facility and operates medical dispensaries in Cambridge, Somerville and Needham. The company grows more than 60 strains of marijuana and turns it into cookies, caramels and other edibles. The CCC has had the authority to issue business licenses to marijuana companies since June 1 and expects that retail sales will begin on or around July 1, even though the regulators have not yet licensed any retail shops. 

CCC Chairman Steven Hoffman said Thursday that the CCC expects to consider license applications at its meetings for the foreseeable future. CCC Executive Director Shawn Collins said Sira Naturals plans to be fully operational within four months of being licensed, though he noted that the company is already growing marijuana for medical use and has the ability to transfer some of that product to the adult use market. The provisional license is conditional upon a fingerprint-based check of state and federal criminal databases, payment of the $5,000 annual license fee, a certification that the company is in compliance with the Department of Public Health’s regulations for medical marijuana, and other conditions. Sira Naturals submitted its application to the CCC before any other companies, on April 18, and the CCC received word from Milford June 8 that the company is following all local zoning ordinances and town bylaws, Collins said.

George Carlin’s Last Words

The Irish Catholic kid from Corpus Christi parish in Harlem-with barely more than a year of high school education-combined his own fierce and fearlessly questioning mind with the lessons he’d learned on the streets of New York to craft comedy that made audiences laugh and challenged them to think. I think it’s great that you had that reaction, because that’s really what we set out to do. So I think that was both an explosive and a very determining factor. I think his legacy is going to be that he’s every bit as popular and long-lasting as Mark Twain, and I think his work is just as voluminous in its medium, and if anything, stronger. It’s not at all the image you take of Fellini; you think he was this left-wing, French nouveau, kind of – but not at all. 

George worked for the side that paid him the most, I think, but that was self-selecting, because the kind of message he grew into was not going to be any more comfortable in Las Vegas than it would be on The National Review’s annual cruise. Partly I think that’s just respect, but it’s partly that he just taught people so many things. George’s fans are hugely loyal I think, over and above other comedians, because he went and met them and performed for them live. I certainly don’t think anyone but Richie Pryor, or possibly Lily Tomlin – though she had a more comedic career rather than a comedy career, I do think that she blazed a trail that was very important, and she was an exact contemporary of Richard and George. I don’t think anyone comes close to Carlin in terms of serious intent, including Richard, actually. 

He called them the plateau, and I think that’s correct. I don’t think he went very far up after the 90s, even in the early 90s. I mean, he thought that Jamming in New York was the best special he’d ever done.

Matt Besser wants to smoke your weed

Reaching far back into his memories, to the halcyon days of his first youthful engagements with cannabis, comedian Matt Besser thinks of Nancy Reagan. For the Los Angeles-based Besser that perspective is particularly extreme. That’s because Besser has been weaving cannabis into his comedy for what he says is longer than he can remember – including hosting a weed-infused comedy show every year on 4/20 since 2006 – and with the shifting attitudes and policies surrounding the subject matter, that means a constant reworking of his material. If you’re curious what that might look like, Besser would be happy to show you, as this month marks the first time the comedian is bringing his canna-comedy routine to Colorado, with a stop at the Springs’ Temple of Open Faith on July 7. This show will also mark the first time Besser has performed in a venue that legally allows cannabis consumption on the premises. 

While Besser isn’t one to typically stoke his creative fire by toking up before or during a show, he admits he may be willing to make an exception given the special nature of the venue. He’s still making sure to leave himself enough room for a unique dialogue with the audience. The majority of the material will, of course, be cannabis-centric, though whether Besser will use that license to riff on the age-old ritual of buying a bong, or the new-age ritual of applying for a medical card, is something audiences will have to pay admission to find out. While cannabis may be the catalyzing force behind the show’s humor, he sees the plant as relating to all facets of life, and thus could hit on a variety of subjects ranging from the sexual to those as benign as a dinner with his daughter at Benihana. Ironically, Besser’s pot humor arrives in what is arguably the preeminent cannabis state at a stage in the comedian’s life when he no longer really partakes. 

Who first began his comedy career in and around Boulder and Denver, the tour also represents something more personal, as it will be the first time he’s returned to the area since getting his start out of college. As outlined by his comedy this mixture of business and pleasure is nothing new for Besser, though when he takes the stage in the Springs, both he and the audience will have an opportunity to see the two come together onstage in a way like never before.

Pineapple Express

Lazy court-process clerk and stoner Dale Denton has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver: to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. When Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city’s most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him-and it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they’re not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia: incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. See more Motion Picture Rating Rated R for pervasive language, drug use, sexual references and violence.

Canada legalizes recreational use of Marijuana

Residents of Canada will be able to use marijuana without the worry of law enforcement, as the country’s senate has passed a bill legalizing the recreational use of the drug. Canada becomes the second country to legalize the drug nationwide, following Uruguay in 2013. The country’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that people will be able to use the drug legally come October 17.It’s been too easy for our kids to get marijuana – and for criminals to reap the profits. Our plan to legalize & regulate marijuana just passed the Senate. According to ABC News, the legislation allows for people over the age of 18 to carry and use up to 30 grams of dried cannabis in public. 

It also allows for residents to cultivate up to four cannabis plants at home, with dried cannabis and cannabis oil set to go on sale later this year.

Corey Feldman charged with marijuana possession in Louisiana

MANGHAM, La. – Police in Louisiana say actor and musician Corey Feldman has been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license after his tour bus was pulled over for speeding over the weekend. Mangham, Louisiana, police say they pulled over a recreational vehicle driven by Feldman on Saturday and took him to a police station after discovering his license was suspended. Police say an officer at the station smelled marijuana and the drug was found in the RV following a search. Police say Feldman was released after paying a fine. Feldman says on Twitter Sunday he had no marijuana on him and faced a charge only because it was his vehicle. 

He says a member of his crew had medicinal marijuana. The 46-year-old former child actor now tours with his band, Corey Feldman & The Angels.

Sean Rouse – Marijuana…. Harmful?

N.J. Lawmakers Introduce Bills To Legalize Marijuana, Expand Medical « CBS New York

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Under new legislation unveiled Friday, recreational marijuana would be legalized in New Jersey and the state’s medical cannabis program would be expanded. The state is moving toward legalizing the drug under Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, who while on the campaign trail promised to authorize recreational cannabis, but the Legislature has not moved on the issue beyond hearings and introducing legislation. Democratic Senate President Steve Sweeney and state Sen. Nicholas Scutari announced the new bills just weeks ahead of a June 30 budget deadline that has upped the stakes since Murphy is banking on revenue from legalization to balance his fiscal 2019 spending pan. 

Nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational marijuana. His budget assumes $60 million in new revenues from the pending approval of recreational marijuana. Under the legislation, people 21 and over could possess, buy, use or transport an ounce or less of marijuana. The bill calls for establishing a graduated tax rate on marijuana sales over several years, and calls for tax rates from 10 percent to 25 percent over four years. A previous version of the bill called for escalating the tax rate from 7 percent to 25 percent over five years. 

Another bill expands the state’s medical marijuana program and allows any health-care practitioner permitted to prescribe controlled substances to write prescriptions. President Donald Trump on Friday said he would likely support a federal bill to end the national ban on marijuana. The federal ban that puts marijuana on the same level as LSD and heroin has created a conflict with about 30 states that have legalized pot in some form, creating a two-tiered enforcement system at the state and federal levels. The legislation would ensure states have the right to determine the best approach to marijuana within their borders, but some U.S. restrictions would remain, including sales of non-medical pot to people under 21.

No lull in Fitchburg marijuana applications

Boston-based company, Native Sun Wellness, expects to come before the Planning Board on July 10 to propose a recreational marijuana cultivation facility on 140 Industrial Road. sentinel & enterprise photo/jeff porter. FITCHBURG – The marijuana industry’s investment in the city shows no sign of slowing down. Plans for a new facility to grow marijuana and the expansion of an existing one are expected to come before the Planning Board next month, according to city officials. These proposals are the latest in a steady stream of applications that have come before the city in the past two years. 

Boston-based company, Native Sun Wellness, expects to come before the Planning Board on July 10 to propose a recreational marijuana cultivation facility on 140 Industrial Road, according to CEO and co-founder Mark Schuparra. He said the company is in the process of purchasing the former furniture manufacturing building, which the company plans to renovate starting Aug. 1 before beginning production in early 2019. After looking at hundreds of possible spaces around the state, Schuparra said they chose this location, because of the existing building and the city’s already sizable experience granting local permits for this relatively new industry. On June 6, the company held a community outreach meeting at the Fitchburg Fire Department Headquarters, but did not receive any feedback from residents, he said. Schuparra said the company is applying to open three retail stores, likely in Hudson and Boston. 

Not including the application from Native Sun Wellness, at least six cultivation facilities and two dispensaries have either opened or received a special permit from the Planning Board. Earlier this year, the company received Planning Board approval to expand operations into the upper floors of its buildings, according to Tom Skwierawski, the city’s executive director of community development. On July 10, the company is expected to request permitting to further expand into an adjacent building, he said.
