When you're annoyed about the cost of weed going up, who should you talk to? Probably anyone else, but the police.

Man who lost his testicles while showing off his scuba bong is fake news

Man who lost his testicles while showing off his scuba bong is fake news

Urban Hippie
The AP is cracking down on fake news, even if it's old and has already been debunked. In September a story surfaced of a man losing his testicles after a freak accident involving a bong and a scuba tank. It appears as if the story first was reported on the site IsThatLegit.com, and let me tell you, it's not legit at all.  SEE ALSO: Legal marijuana sales topped $5.8 billion in 2016 Here's a couple lines from the original post: The initial story claimed the man was from Calgary, but the post then reappeared on the site BostonLeader.com with the location swapped for Boston. Snopes was quick to debunk the story when it was first being shared, but that wasn't good enough for AP, so they fact checked it themselves five months later.  Read more...More about Fake News, Marijuana, Watercooler, a

Snoop Dogg gives best bud Willie Nelson the perfect Christmas sweater

Urban Hippie
Normally, a colorful Christmas sweater wouldn't be considered the coolest gift. Unless it's from Snoop Dogg, and you happen to be country legend Willie Nelson.  Obviously, the two men have one special interest in common: making great music.  SEE ALSO: Snoop Dogg's 2016 recap is a thing of beauty Oh yeah, and smoking that sticky icky.  Thank you @SnoopDogg for the Christmas Sweater pic.twitter.com/jzaw7pkQEe — Willie Nelson (@willienelson) January 4, 2017 The red-headed stranger and Snoop not only once lit up together, they also got the munchies and went through the KFC drive-thru in the same car.  Read more...More about Christmas, Weed, Marijuana, Willie Nelson, and Snoop Dogg Source: Marshable

Legal marijuana is growing fast.  Sales of the newly legal-for-many drug topped $5.8 billion in the United States in 2016, and $6.7 billion in North America, according to a new report.

UPDATE (1:45 p.m. ET): The tarps have been removed and the sign is back to its boring old self. A prankster in Hollywood must be pretty excited about the state's legalization of marijuana, as they altered the world-famous Hollywood sign to read "Hollyweed."  SEE ALSO: The 9 need-to-know takeaways from your 2017 Golden Globe nominees The incident happened overnight Saturday night into early Sunday morning.

This secretary has no idea that she has a weed pipe on her desk

Urban Hippie
Glass pipes used to smoke cannabis are works of art worthy of being on display. Though sometimes their beauty can distract people from realizing what they're truly intended for. A Twitter user named Ellie was recently visiting her primary care doctor in Greensboro, North Carolina, for a check up when she noticed something peculiar on the secretary's desk.  Image: suppliedIt's a little hard to notice but if you zoom in on the cute glass elephant figurine on her desk you'll notice it's definitely a weed pipe. Image: SUPPLIEDAnd to be fair it's actually a pretty sweet pipe. The mouthpiece is the elephant's trunk and the chamber (where you put the weed) is located on its back.   Read more...More about Marijuana, Funny, Watercooler, and Pics Source: Marshable
Steelers kicker given 'random' drug test after making 6 field goals

Steelers kicker given 'random' drug test after making 6 field goals

Urban Hippie
The NFL randomly selected Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell for a drug test on Wednesday morning, but oh, does the timing seem far from "random." Responsible for 18 of his team's 24 points on Sunday, Steelers kicker Chris Boswell pretty much "put the team on his back," as they say. His six field goals mark a career best, which makes this "random" drug test suspiciously not random. SEE ALSO: The real story behind this viral NBA video Boswell tweeted the note taped to his locker, and seemed pretty skeptical.  "Random" drug test 🤔😴 pic.twitter.com/GaZ5lOfb0e — Chris Boswell (@WizardOfBoz09) December 21, 2016 Read more...
