Marijuana is legal in the state of Colorado, but being legal and being embraced are two different things.
For Colorado’s Denver County Fair this year, they’ve decided marijuana should be included in the festivities. According to the fair’s official website, in addition to having pot plants judged alongside squash and tomatoes, there will also be the first-ever, joint-rolling contest to see who can roll a joint the fastest! And if that wasn’t enough, there will also be a best pot brownie recipe contest, a homemade bong judging and more—nine categories of marijuana total!
Interestingly enough, no actual marijuana will be present on the fairgrounds.
“We have a lot of families and kids at the fair, of course, and we wanted to be respectful of that,” explained Tracy Weil to HuffPost, the fair’s marketing and creative director.
Instead, the judging for the marijuana plants and pot brownies will be…

In Puglia come in California? “Il consiglio regionale ha approvato all’unanimita’ la legge sul consumo di cannabis per il trattamento del dolore.Una delle giornate piu’ belle per la Puglia dei diritti e della dignita’. tra due giorni definiremo il parternariato e le procedure per chiedere al Ministero di poter avviare la sperimentazione della coltivazione di cannabis e l’uso sui pazienti”. Ecco lo stato di facebook pubblicato sul Profilo Ufficiale dell’Assessore Regionale alla Politiche della Salute e Welfare della Regione Puglia, Elena Gentile. Occorrerà attendere qualche giorno per notare se i semi gettati qualche anno fa da Nichi Vendola e dal Sel, permetteranno di concedere ai malati l’utilizzo di marijuana, a un costo accessibile. Se sarà un primo passo verso la legalizzazione a scopo ricreativo è tutto da vedere, ma senza dubbio i presupposti stanno comparendo.

Yes. Weed is illegal, and yes alcohol is not. But which one is really worse? If you’re a stoner like me, you know the answer, but for some reason, most people just don’t get it. Might as well start with the obvious statistics.
Deaths from alcohol annually: 2,331…today. Deaths from weed: 0…forever.
Car accidents from alcohol: 10,228 in 2010 Car accidents from weed: 0…forever (again)
I know that last one about weed accidents may not seem true, but there is no compelling evidence that proves that marijuana inhibits driving abilities and motor skills as seriously as mild alcohol doses. If just those facts aren’t enough to convince, stop being ignorant, try both, and figure it out for yourself.
Alcohol inhibits brain function, delays response time, and basically makes you turn into a FUCKING DUMBASS. You never hear…

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A 64-year-old grandmother was arrested Monday for allegedly trafficking marijuana from her Sarver home.
Police say Candice Kelly sold as much as 100 pounds of the drug per year from California, for at least five years.
[worldnow id=9777884 width=385 height=255 type=video]
“Legalize it man,” Kelly said while exiting the police station Tuesday. “If I can make that kind of money, why can’t the rest of Pennsylvania wise up? I never got on Welfare, I never drew anything from the system, I raised all my kids on my own. That’s my only crime.”
They say Kelly would receive shipment of around 30 or 40 pounds of marijuana, then would sell it for $3,400 per pound.
At Kelly’s house in October, police say they found nearly $400,000 and 64 pounds of marijuana, in addition unknown amounts of hashish and Psilocybin mushrooms.
At the time, Kelly’s husband says the search…

There are so many different aspects of the Marijuana argument out there to discuss. Topics that come to my mind at first are…..
-Health Benefits and Medicinal Uses
-Health Effects and Risks
-Effects of Legalization
-Compared to Alcohol
-Drug Related Violence
and so many more to take into consideration! These topics are interwoven into one big debate, that is causing a plummeting cloud of smoke over America. (pun intended)
For this post, I’d like to consider some of the health benefits that marijuana has been claimed to provide. Take a look at these former NFL players view of the “drug.”

As the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks prepare to face off in the Super Bowl this Sunday, various politicians, organizations, and art institutions in the two cities have made friendly bets to show off their hometown pride. Here are some of the wagers that have been announced so far.
• If the Denver Broncos win, the Seattle Art Museum will lend a Native American mask that looks like a Seahawk (Forehead Mask – Nuxalk First Nation) to the Denver Art Museum. If the Seattle Seahawks win, the Denver Art Museum will lend Frederic Remington’s The Broncho Buster, a bronze cowboy riding a bucking horse, to the Seattle Art Museum. The loan will last three months, and the losing city will pay for all of the expenses.
• The Washington and Colorado chapters of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana…

Marshawn Lynch is a powerful running back for the Seattle Seahawks. A marijuana grower in Seattle has named a powerful strand of weed “Beast Mode” after Lynch. Apparently, marijuana is legal in Seattle and Denver. They might as well call the big game the “Super BOWL,” if you know what I mean. Anyway here are some details from the Seattle Times:
“It’s extremely strong,” said Nate “Diggity” Johnson, owner of the Queen Anne Cannabis Club.
The weed hits you like its namesake, he added. “Marshawn has gears when he’s running and it’s kind of like that. It has a little bit of a slow start and then kicks in.”
Like Lynch’s success in Seattle, the strain was a beautiful accident.
The group of growers that produced Beast Mode call themselves Zion Gardens. Johnson explained the growers came up with the name after cultivating a strain that was supposed to…

Upon returning to campus after winter break, many Duke undergraduates from Colorado have reported an unusual “friendliness,” from other students.
“I’ve gotten a lot of text messages from people I don’t really know that well asking about my plans for spring break,” junior and Denver native Mark Wells stated. “At first I was confused but then I just got really high with the weed that I brought back from Colorado and realized what a cool guy I am. Can you stand still for a second, bro?”
Senior Amy Cox, from Boulder, CO has been enjoying the attention. “People finally appreciate me for being me,” she reported while lighting her mid-afternoon joint. “I think people are finally starting to realize that this is my last semester on campus and this is their last chance to hang out with me. Everyone keeps asking me how much of the ‘good stuff’ I brought…

Part One of Four
Charlotte and I were only going out for a month when those three short and overused words came from her mouth when we were laying on my bed after coming back from a friend’s house party.
Leaping into existence out of a content, alcohol-induced buzz, Charlotte confessed the age-old expression “I love you” and even with my deepest appreciation of her honest sincerity, nevertheless had a red flag pop up in my head. Instead of leaving it alone and responding with the same banal custom in order to continue on the crescendo of physical passion, I instead inquired as to how many times she had said that famous phrase. No, not to family or friends but in the context of her past intimate relationships. How many men in her twenty-eight year long life did she feel she honestly in the deepest meaning of the word,

Let’s talk about the different strains of marijuana available today. There are basically two main marijuana strains that exist in the marketplace, Indica and sativa. Indica is known for a low level, lazy experience, whereas Indica is known for an energetic, exciting experience. These two different types of strains have been extremely popular in America throughout the last 40 years, and users have grown to know and love them as a go to substance for their smoking pleasures. It’s hard to find two different types of strains that don’t have some type of mixture with these two substances. You used to be able to find pure Indica are pure suttee the strains, but nowadays all of them are a mixture between the two due to excessive breeding. Some people claim to like the high-end sativa strains and others are avid supporters of the Indica type. Whichever marijuana strain you prefer…

Colorado’s Denver County is adding cannabis-themed contests to its 2014 summer fair. It’s the first time pot plants will stand alongside tomato plants and homemade jam in competition for a blue ribbon.
There won’t actually be any marijuana at the fairgrounds. The judging will be done off-site, with photos showing the winning entries. And a live joint-rolling contest will be done with oregano, not pot.
But county fair organizers say the marijuana categories will add a fun twist on Denver’s already-quirky county fair, which includes a drag queen pageant and a contest for dioramas made with Peeps candies…
The nine marijuana categories include live plants and clones, plus contests for marijuana-infused brownies and savory foods. Homemade bongs, homemade roach clips and clothing and fabric made with hemp round out the categories.
Judges will look only at plant quality, not the potency or quality of the drugs they…

Is this a coincidence that it has to be 420 km away from Earth? Did Mr. Hadfield have a say in this matter? LOL
” …Two space station astronauts are making a spacewalk to install a pair of cameras developed by a Canadian firm. The Russian astronauts are completing a job left undone last month.
Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazanskiy quickly got one of the Canadian-developed cameras installed outside the International Space Station, a task requiring multiple power connections. Everything checked out well, unlike the post-Christmas spacewalk where no data emanated from the cameras.
The two men worked so hard — determined to accomplish the job this time — that Russian Mission Control outside Moscow urged them to “get your breath.”
“We’ll force ourselves to rest,” one of the spacewalkers replied in Russian….“
I find it is very cool how we are contributing…
