Wild animals used to guard marijuana operation

This is one of the funniest marijuana news items I've seen in a while. Apparently some guys in Canada were using wild animals to guard their weed growing operation, including bears, but all the animals turned out to be tame and just sat around watching when the police showed up. Maybe they got into the stash!

Oregonian calls medical marijuana a 'farce'

The editorial board of The Oregonian says "the whole wink-and-nod farce that has characterized the politics of medical marijuana has become downright offensive."
Exactly. That's why it should just be completely legalized.
Another smarter and more sensible blogger responds to the editorial here.

Senate bill could do away with medical marijuana edibles

CBS News reports that a new Senate bill introduced by (who else?) Diane Feinstein could prohibit selling marijuana mixed with candy and other sweets. The law is supposed to keep companies from marketing marijuana to kids. What a joke. Who the hell is going to sell this stuff to kids anyway? I just can't picture a child walking into a dispensary and walking out with marijuana in any form. I suppose it could happen, but it would definitely be an exception to the norm, and should be delt with on a case-by-case basis instead of just taking away this much-needed medicine for everybody. This is just another part of Sen. Feinstein's personal war against drugs. She should be ashamed of herself.

Top 10 Stoner Movies Ever: #7 Pineapple Express

Sorry for the delay on this entry. I've been a busy man lately. But anyway, here it is: The #7 Top Stoner Movie Ever.
Pineapple Express is a classic fish-out-of-water story about two potheads who get caught up in an action movie plot straight out of a Jerry Bruckheimer flick. 
Seth Rogen stars as pothead everyman Dale Denton, a process server who witnesses a murder and must escape certain death at the hands of criminal thugs with lots and lots of guns.
I've always liked Seth Rogen and found him hilarious, but he is really out-shined in this one by co-star James Franco. Franco plays Denton's drug dealer Saul and is so lovably goofy that he steals the show. I don't know why he doesn't play more comedy roles, because this dude is seriously funny.
If you like Judd Apatow style comedy, don't miss this one.

Top 10 Stoner Movies Ever: #8 Harold & Kumar go to White Castle

This movie took the format of Cheech & Chong (two foreign guys who like to smoke weed) and invigorated it with a youthful energy. 'Harold & Kumar' is about two guys on the greatest munchie mission in history. The movie is funny and fast, and most importantly, doesn't take itself too seriously at all.

Although the sequel, 'Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay' upped the ante in terms of pure craziness, it didn't seem to have the heart or originality of the first movie.

And who can forget the legendary cameo by Neil Patrick Harris?

Top 10 Stoner Movies Ever: #9 Rolling Kansas

Rolling Kansas is a delightful romp about five men on a road trip to the mythical marijuana fields of Kansas in search of a top secret government stash. And it co-stars Rip Torn as a crazy, old kook. Need I say more?

Top 10 Stoner Movies Ever: #10 Reefer Madness

Okay. This one makes it on the list primarily due to it's historical significance.The film, released in 1936, was funded by a church group and originally went by the title 'Tell Your Children'. The plot revolves around the tragedies that ensue when high school students are lured by pushers to try smoking pot. Consequences of using the devil weed include a hit and run accident, a rape, and a suicide.
   The movie is quite humorous to watch due to the fact that the whole movie is basically one big gob of misinformation. I'm sure this movie did quite a bit to defame marijuana during it's time, but now it's just funny.
