Here’s a tip for all you students: GO TO FUCKING CLASS!

I recently had the final exam in the class I taught over the summer. (The class was introduction to functions and graphs – basic, high school level mathematics.) I only had 11 students, so marking went fast. (Thank flaming Christ.) 1 student just plain ol’ missed the final exam, so I only had 10 exams to mark. Most of the students got about 80 or higher – one got a 67, and one got a 38.5 (out of 100.)

Now, most of the students were basically good students. Showed up to class, asked questions, took advantage of office hours, did their homeworks, etc… However, the guy that flunked the final didn’t show up to class, didn’t do the homeworks, never came to office hours or tutorials, etc… Basically, he didn’t show any initiative throughout the 3 months of class.

pundit from another planet

Betsy Woodruff went on The Cycle this afternoon to talk about her, let’s call it, interesting trip to last weekend’s Seattle Hempfest, and the state of marijuana decriminalization in Washington and across the country. “I think the odds of seeing legislation happen in Congress anytime soon regarding this is fairly slim,” she predicted, but that regulatory changes may “keep pace with what’s going on in the states.”

Make sure to check out her piece over on the homepage, “Quick Hits from Hempfest.”

The Fallacy of the “Legalize and Tax Cannabis” initiatives.

Overgrow The World

April 21, 2010

I have listened and understood the words of the late Jack Herer, and I am amazed how few people who say they believe in what Jack was saying truly understand the real reasons why he so horrified at the idea of creating new cannabis taxes. Let me explain quickly: THEY ARE NOT NEEDED AT ALL! As a matter of fact, nothing could be further from the truth!

Now I’m sure that many of you don’t…

OXFORD, Miss. – In recent years there’s been a shift in the attitudes about marijuana, particularly for its medical benefits. Dr. Mahmoud ElSohly has been the director of the “Marijuana Project” at Ole Miss since 1981.

“We here at the University of Mississippi, are in the process of developing other products that could be used in developing it from the plant material that would have good biological activity, good therapeutic potential without having to smoke the drug,” he says.

Currently in the United States, marijuana is legal in some form for medical use only in several states and the District of Columbia.

However, Dr. ElSohly says legalization is not the way to go.

“People just use that as a way of having access to the drug, not really because they have a medical condition that can benefit from marijuana,” Dr. ElSohly says.

Border agents caught a scuba diver with 8 pounds of marijuana

Scuba divers are usually explorers who realize how dangerous the activity is.  So it would seem that you would not want to add to the danger. Well, according to the Sun News, someone added to that danger, and it cost them. The Canadian outlet reports authorities arrested a scuba diver carrying eight pounds of marijuana while attempting to cross the U.S./Canadian border.

I think I’ll begin this review by saying I definitely did not have high expectations for this album at all and truth be told, I wasn’t going to plan on giving it a go until I saw the features which included high profile names such as Justin Timberlake, The Weeknd, Trey Songz, Chris Brown and more. These are four of my top five RNB artists (if you’re curious the other is Miguel) so I had to give this album a go and let me start by saying that this album isn’t on par with Born Sinner or even Hall of Fame but it is a decent album with a few 5* tracks, easily worth the ten dollars or pounds you’d pay.

This review won’t be as in depth as the Hall of Fame review because I actually can’t go in depth about each track due to the pure fact that…

Two Canton-area have been charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana, after feds learned of a shipment of nearly one ton of marijuana.

Ray Sanchez, 46, remains in custody, while his co-conspirator, Andy Fagan, 29, has been released on bond.

Marijuana, grass, Mary Jane and weed all are inhibited from Cannabis sativa or the Indian hemp plant. Due to containing an element called tetrahydrocannabinol, this plant is used as an illegal drug all over the world.

Watts Up With That?

While pro-warming political pundits like to demonize climate skeptic research by comparing it to that of tobacco company research and marketing, it seems there is a parallel between the story of global warming and marijuana demonization.

Guest Essay by Dr. Robert G. Brown, Duke University (elevated from a comment)

Judith Curry’s remarks [Scientists and motivated reasoning], as usual, are dead on the money.

Here’s an almost perfectly analogous problem: CNN recently completely reversed its editorial policy and now calls for the legalization of Marijuana. Sanjay Gupta, its “resident physician editorialist”, who had previously somewhat vigorously led this opposition from the scientific point of view completely reversed his own position, and explained why in considerable detail both in text and in online video.

Historically, marijuana was both

An Ohio man having bought what he thought was an empty gun safe in which he intended housing his collection of rifles and shotguns discovered 285lbs of marijuana stashed inside it. Being the good citizen that he was, the gentleman contacted the po-lice. The annonymous Sidney resident paid $1,700 for the gun safe, which weighs nearly 1,000lbs and stands at more than 5 feet high.

Shelby County Sheriff John Lehart said that  he got a call from a local resident June 19 reporting that he found the neatly packed drugs inside the vault that he had ordered. The Champion Trophy 42 model gun safe, although sold by Champion Safe Company, based in Provo, Utah, was in fact manufactured by prison inmates in Nogales, Mexico.

According to investigators, the 10 tightly packed bales of pot with an estimated  street value of more than $420,000 were laced in the safe somewhere between Mexico and Shelby. The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are…

Marijuana does what?

In response to a certain banned advertisement at a NASCAR rally, the DEA responds and claims that cannabis has the potential of being just as harmful as booze.

Do we even have to continue this debate?
DEA, what a bunch of trained monkeys.
What a waste of bananas.

Marijuana, Ganja, Mary Jane, whatever you call it.  That is the subject of today’s blog.  I skimmed a blog today.  It was about why this guy would NEVER vote to make the sell of Marijuana legal.  He’s entitled to his opinion, so I won’t comment on his blog, but it did make me think.

In the state of Colorado, the sell of Marijuana is technically legal.  Technically you can sell it, won’t get arrested, by locals, for possessing it, no worries right?  However, even though it is indeed legal for sell and distribution for reasons other than medical in the state of Colorado, the DEA says it is indeed not legal.  If they pick you up for distribution, best believe it won’t be a slap on the wrist.

Federally marijuana is very illegal.  Fail your drug test as a member of the military because you decided to have your very…
