Louisiana State University is Looking for Pot Farmers

Uncategorized
Louisiana State University is taking offers from contractors to grow and process weed for the state’s medical marijuana program. LSU professor Dr. Ted Gauthier told WBRZ-TV that lots of people from out of state have shown a great deal of interest in doing the honors. He added that they expect to have about 10 finalists to choose from. “We’re looking for somebody who will be able to provide the quality product for the patients in Louisiana who will be using the medical marijuana product,” said Gautheir, a researcher at LSU’s AgCenter Biotechnology Laboratory. Louisiana’s medical marijuana bill was officially signed into law back in May 2016, making it the 25th state to legalize some type of MMJ program, although no one was allowed to grow or process cannabis until now. And the word “officia

How to Make Cannabis Lube for Valentine’s Day

Written by Monica Lo & Scott Peabody from Sous Weed
. Photos by Monica Lo. Every year when Valentine’s Day rolls around, discussions turn to natural aphrodisiacs, whether it be chocolate or oysters. Alas, most of this talk is all hype—the truth is, oysters aren’t nature’s Viagra, they just look vaguely vaginal. The good news is that when it comes to putting us in the mood for love, cannabis is the genuine article. Aside from stimulating all the right parts of your biggest sexual organ (we’re talking about the brain, calm down), our sensual friend Mary also has a soothing side when used topically. So how to apply this knowledge? Our imaginations at Sous Weed turned immediately to infused homemade personal lubricant. We all know that THC is fat-soluble, and fats are great at lubricat

Consulting Colorado Drug Cop Spreading Marijuana Legalization Lies

Uncategorized
Curious about what marijuana legalization might do to New Jersey, local lawmakers in the Atlantic City area wanted an expert to tell them what they might expect. Instead, they heard from Kevin Wong, an intelligence analyst with the Rocky Mountain High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, who had some news for Jersey that would have come as a surprise to colleagues back in Colorado. Thanks to weed, Wong is no longer proud of his home state. “I have to apologize for what Colorado has done, because it has now affected all of you in other states,” he told lawmakers at an annual breakfast event attended by lawmakers from several cities in the Jersey Shore area. He “ruefully noted that visitors flying to Colorado can arrange to be picked up directly at the airport for special tours of the state’s b

Stoner Sex: Small Breasts, Big Bushes, Talking Dirty & Submission

Uncategorized
Dear Hyapatia,My boyfriend and I just started having sex a few weeks ago. We are at that point in our relationship where we are starting to learn more about each other and the more I see, the more I think he is gay and in denial about it. He would rather have anal sex than regular sex, and he likes girls with small breasts. He said his last girlfriend was almost flat chested, and they had anal sex all the time. It is so obvious to me that he is gay, I really want to free him by helping him out of the closet. How can I do that without offending him? — Jessica  Dear Jessica,There are many men that prefer women with smaller breasts. I can see why you might be tempted to think that this, coupled with his fervor for anal sex, would indicate that he is more gay than straight, but he may not actu

Did A Vice Editor Recruit Interns As Drug Mules?

Uncategorized
According to Canada’s National Post, a former editor with Vice Media used his position at the high-octane media outlet to recruit young journalists and artists into a “transnational cocaine-smuggling ring.” Current and former Vice employees alleged to the Post that 26-year-old Yaroslav Pastukhov, a.k.a. Slava Pastuk, personally tried to recruit them as drug couriers during his time as music editor for Noisey, offering a fee of $10,000 to smuggle cocaine hidden in the lining of suitcases. They all said they declined the offer. Pastukhov’s one-time roommate, an up-and-coming DJ and electronic music artist named Jordan Gardner, was arrested along with four others on Dec. 22, 2015 in Sydney, Australia when cocaine valued at approximately 5 million US dollars was discovered in luggage belonging

Philippines: Duterte to Mobilize Army in Drug War

Uncategorized
There was recently a sign that the Philippines’ ultra-hardline President Rodrigo Duterte was going to rein in his murderous police in the face of mounting international criticsm of their harsh anti-drug crackdown. It took the police killing of a foreign business executive, before Duterte finally pledged that he would disband and reorganize the National Police narco units. But human rights observers may have rejoiced too soon. On Jan. 31—just one day after his announcement of the police overhaul—Duterte made a speech to army generals, telling them that while the police were off the drug war beat, the armed forces would have to step in to replace them. Rather than taking a step back from the brink, it looks like the Philippines could be following the grim examples of Mexico and Colombia by

New York Lawmakers Pushing for Recreational Pot in 2017

Uncategorized
New York lawmakers are hoping that the recent legalization of marijuana in Massachusetts and Maine will inspire the state’s legislative forces to take similar action in the 2017 session. Two bills—A3506 and S3040—were recently introduced in the New York General Assembly and in the Senate aimed at creating a system that would allow marijuana to be taxed and regulated across the state in a manner similar to beer. The proposals would enact the “Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act,” which would give adults 18 and older the freedom to possess up to two ounces of weed and cultivate as many as six plants at home for personal use. It would also give way to the creation of a fully legal cannabis industry whereby adults 21 and older could purchase cannabis products at retail dispensaries statewide

I’m very frustrated to have to tell you this, but my Super Bowl Party tomorrow has been canceled under the threat of arrest by the LAPD.

Here’s Why You Should Be Discussing Medical Pot During the Super Bowl

Uncategorized
Former NFL players and medical marijuana advocates have been using what is probably the largest platform of the entire year to get their point across: Super Bowl Week. A panel, comprised of the NFL greats and experts, discussed medical marijuana as a natural alternative to opiates for treatment of sports injuries, especially concussions, all too common among football players. The event, “Cannabis in Professional Sports,” sponsored by Vapen CBD and Merry Jane, was held on Wednesday at the Revention Music Center in Houston, Texas. Marijuana is currently on the list of substances banned by the NFL, but several former players are hoping to change that. If an NFL player tests positive for weed, he can be fined, suspended or kicked out of the league. Members of the panel included former New Orle

Forget Sessions: Meet The Real Marijuana Enemy in Donald Trump’s Cabinet

Uncategorized
America’s marijuana industry has enjoyed several years of unprecedented growth. Our current multibillion-dollar boom times could last well into the 2020s, cannabis sector experts and observers predict. But economics follow cycles of boom-and-bust. There’s a crash coming at some point. The major question for the cannabis sector now is whether the anti-marijuana zealots soon to be in charge of the federal government will be its architects. Most of the speculation has centered on Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump’s choice for attorney general, whose nomination advanced past a committee of Senate Republicans this week (who had to briefly suspend their own rules in order to do it, a phenomenon that’s not at all a frightening slippery slope). If Sessions wanted to, he could use the Justice Department
