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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Marijuana Smoking on Caribbean Princess – Funny Comedy – Hypnotist Fernandez

Stoner comedy “Super Troopers 2,” opening on 4/20, has an unexpected Denver connection

The event also provided valuable, on-brand PR for Khalatbari, who is challenging Mayor Michael Hancock in the May 2019 election and has raised more funds than the embattled Hancock this year. Khalatbari, who made his money with the Sexy Pizza chain before co-founding the Denver Relief dispensary, was quick to strike the sort of unprompted, wonky tone befitting an elected official. Also potentially catching fire: Actual marijuana in the WeedStream trailer in the Sie’s parking lot that night – a modified Airstream trailer where the cast did interviews, and the public could hang out and legally get high before the screening. While Fox Searchlight Pictures brought the trailer to the Sie, Khalatbari has been using his own connections to market the film. The original was made for just over $1 million and did middling business at the box office, but has gone on to become a dorm-room classic thanks to home video and streaming. 

That means the sequel has a lot to live up to – including an incredibly high reputation among stoners. The crowd at the Sie FilmCenter on Sunday was not quite so breezy. Some of the fans had whole swaths of the original film memorized, judging by the quotes overheard in conversation. Most hustled into the theater long before the start time. We need more than 54,000 people to show up this weekend. 

That explains Broken Lizard’s relentless road trip to promote the movie, which continued on to Chicago after the Denver premiere Sunday. You can also stack the deck by getting really, really high before watching.

The Late Miloš Forman Was A Stoner Comedy Pioneer

Cheech and Chong often get credited for inventing the stoner comedy, but the cannabis sub-genre actually began long before they crashed the scene. Two-time Academy Award winner director Miloš Forman – who passed away last night at the age of 86 – directed the marijuana-themed comedy ‘Taking Off’ seven years before ‘Up in Smoke’ debuted. Forman’s film features a group of wealthy suburban New Yorkers who join a support group to cope with the stress caused by their rebellious kids. To understand their troubled teens, the group takes a crash course on marijuana offered by a guest speaker played by Vincent Schiavelli. After a lecture on cannabis etiquette, the guest speaker – – encourages the uptight crowd to light up a dozen spliffs while portraits of affluent ancestors look on pensively. 

The film won the coveted Grand Prix award at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival- making it one of the most critically acclaimed stoner comedies of all time. Check out the hilariously awkward scene below, which probably introduced terms like ‘joint,’ ‘bogart’ and ‘roach’ to moviegoers who identified with the squares on screen.

High Maintenance Trailer: Watch the Trailer for HBO’s New Comedy

In the golden age of television, web shorts, Netflix/Amazon original series, premium channels, cable stations, and major networks are all created equal. The lines are blurred and the platform doesn’t matter. Within the last few years-specifically on HBO-the comedy is thriving. Veep, Silicon Valley, Horace and Pete, Lady Dynamite, Orange Is the New Black, Archer-they’re all outpacing the drama right now. Much of this is thanks to this blurring of platform lines. Louis CK, the most important man in comedy today, released his new show as a surprise on his own website. A show can start out as a webseries on Vemeo then become a full-fleged HBO series, as High Maintenance did. The show, which follows pot deliveryman in New York, will make its HBO debut this fall. Having debuted in 2012, the show has run for six three-episode seasons, which will all be available on HBO Now and HBO Go.In the first trailer for the new season on HBO, it looks like High Maintenance creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair have lost none of their fleeting, stoner charm in the movie to a premium network.

Seth Rogen: Legalization won’t make marijuana any less funny

We haven’t found any real difference in the way people react to it on screen. I think right now probably more people are trying it than ever have because it’s becoming a little more socially accepted than it was. It’s probably less taboo than it’s ever been in some ways, but I think its popularity outweighs it’s taboo-ness. It’s honestly the thing that made us think it was a good idea in the first place. There are some jokes in this that definitely threaten to cross a line. If we are achieving that line, that is the way we are achieving it – through diligence and through showing the jokes to audiences and really seeing what people respond to and don’t respond to. If jokes don’t get laughs, then we don’t keep them in the movie. We don’t pretend that we, even after all these years, really know what people are definitively going to be OK with and not OK with. I’m honestly surprised with what more people are OK with more than anything. I wasn’t even sure people were going to get that joke, and the first time we screened it I was blown away by the reaction it got and was really surprised.

The Long Beach native has popped up on a few different shows this year and he’s about to add another one to the list. Snoop was announced as an executive producer and guest star for the upcoming MTV show Mary + Jane. The weed-themed series is a comedy about two best friends running an all-female marijuana delivery service in Los Angeles. In addition to Snoop Dogg’s duties as a producer and guest star, he also created the theme song for the new MTV program. The Doggfather is no stranger to television themes as he most recently crafted one for Comedy Central’s Another Period. Fans will get to hear what he made for Mary + Jane when the show premieres on Sept. 5. While the weed-centric nature of the show and Los Angeles location would make you think that Snoop Dogg is appearing as himself in the show, that is not the case. Snoop Dogg’s guest spot in Mary + Jane comes on the heels of his prominent role in the latest season of the cult classic Trailer Park Boys. Snoop’s also been the star of two reality shows in 2016: AOL’s Coach Snoop and BET’s Music Moguls.

Best Stoner Podcasts – The Chill Bud

Everyone knows that television is a heavily scripted mess of fake personalities and fantastical concepts. If you want to get a real live look at your favorite celebrities or public figures, podcasts are the way to go. There is a podcast for everyone, and thankfully there are a handful that are really geared towards stoners. So light one up, kick back and enjoy some of the best stoner podcasts available on the web. This is a super chill podcast made specifically for cannabis enthusiasts. Alright time for full disclosure, I haven’t listened / watched to all of the podcasts on this list. I just feel that the official High Times podcast hosted by Danny Danko has to be included in the mix, and I promise to get to it soon. Most recently he competed on Dancing with the Stars and didn’t once hide the fact that he is an avid pot smoker. If anyone smokes more weed than Joey Diaz, it’s Tommy. This podcast and the next are a couple I have yet to check out, but I assure you, they are well-known marijuana podcasts and you should probably have a listen.

Money Morning: Tech Marijuana Firms Need To Grow “Good Stuff”

Every pot grower knows that lots of care, technique, and technology goes into the cultivation and feeding of marijuana plants. All that’s needed so those plants can flower and produce commercially and medically useful compounds – especially the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol that relieves pain and nausea and gets recreational users high. It’s also the specialty of the company I’m going to show you today. This company is one of the fundamental picks in my Nova-X Report’s Roadmap to Marijuana Millions model portfolio. With it, you’ll start tapping the profit power in legal cannabis and keep your risk low. Marijuana plants must be exposed to light for 12 hours a day – and be kept in darkness for just as long. That’s fine for folks who grow their own at home. To protect their investment, growers turn to state-of-the-art greenhouses containing high-tech devices and monitors such as hygrometers, which see to it that humidity levels never get above 50%, and CO2 tanks, which add the carbon dioxide that plants breathe to indoor air.

Review: ‘Disjointed’ Is One Buzzkill of a Pot Comedy

Even in a more choom-friendly America, it’d be a tough sell at CBS.The result is a mess of a comedy that doesn’t feel as if it belongs anywhere. Ruth runs her shop, Ruth’s Alternative Caring, with her strait-laced M.B.A. son, Travis. For the intoxicant, this kind of wacky family-work hybrid could have aired 25 years ago. It’s also raunchy without much sophistication and distractingly self-conscious. The best subplot involves the security guard, Carter, an Iraq veteran grappling with post-traumatic stress disorder. Back in the present, she shakes her head at how worked up she and the crowd got over what was, in retrospect, lousy pot.

This 21,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility, which also includes a restaurant and a martini bar, is an upgrade on the downtown location, and the comedy theater holds nearly twice as many people.
