Friday Funny: Dealer not guilty because marijuana wilted

A drug dealer whose marijuana seedlings were found to be wilted can’t be convicted of trafficking.

This is according to Italy’s Court of Cassation, which recently upheld the appeal by a man who was convicted by first and second grade courts for the offence of growing, trafficking and possession of illicit drugs. The high court judges, however, pointed out that the bad vegetative state of the four plants found on the accused’s balcony meant that the police could not verify “the effective offensiveness of the actual alleged cultivation.”

Denver’s new pot radio station blazes a trail, but will it run into legal issues?

Weed culture moved from the air to the airwaves in Colorado last week.

The first thing you notice after entering the Denver studios of “Smokin 94.1″ — Colorado’s first FM radio station devoted to marijuana enthusiasts, which debuted last week — is the lack of smell.

A giant bong and pot-themed posters decorate the offices, the music is in line with the brand (Bon Jovi’s “Blaze of Glory”), but the air is clean.

“It’s a non-smoking building,” said owner Marc Paskin, who doubles as DJ “Gary Ganja” during afternoon drive time. He’s additionally “O.G. Kush,” the announcer of the pot radio “4:20 News,” repeated at 5:20 p.m. “because our listeners can’t remember.”

Friday Funny: NASA Has Discovered A New Planet Covered With Marijuana

NASA has announced this morning that they have discovered a planet completely covered with marijuana, a discovery that has completely taken scientists by surprise. Planet X637Z-43, discovered using NASA’s Kepler satellite, would also allegedly be one of the very few planets potentially habitable according to NASA experts, who have detected sufficient levels of oxygen and nitrogen to support human life. The presence of marijuana on other planets could strongly encourage future generations to take interest in space exploration, some experts believe.

If weed dispensaries used the Netflix business model

Weed-on-demand: Things are always great on demand. Humans have an insatiable appetite for efficiency. They want things, and they want them now. It's the reason Netflix has done so well. You want to watch a movie, great. In fact you can watch as many as you like - or as many as the ones we have on offer, for a reasonable monthly subscription fee. Ideal. 

In 2005 the music industry was busy talking about the idea of consuming media like water. Or to put it simply, paying for music like you would pay your gas or electricity bills. As if music or media was a household utility.

DARE Falls Victim To Their Aggressiveness By Publishing An Anti-Marijuana Article That Is Clearly ...

Thanks to the internet, accessibility to breaking news stories – either they be important world events or the latest celebrity happenings – has become easy. Along with the legit news however, there are satire articles, news pieces written to come off as legit news until readers truly realize how ridiculous the piece really is. The Inquisitr is known for debunking satire pieces that usually sweep social media, such as one that claimed Starbucks uses a “special ingredient” to flavor their drinks.

Chickens getting high? Natural grocer, 420-friendly sandwich shop do battle

A friend of mine said “only big cities have billboard fights.”

Denver, welcome to the big time.

Cheba Hut (which opened just a few weeks ago at Colfax and Washington) wasted no time staking out its territory by poking fun at neighbor Natural Grocers’ anti-GMO billboard.

The Fort Collins-based sandwich chain is no stranger to drug references (see its name, marketing materials, employee T-shirts and menu for more examples), or using their marquee as a platform for humor.

During the renovation of the new location (formerly a bodega, which according to former Cap Hill resident Dan Schneider was an Everyday for years), the sign read “THIS S**T IS TAKING FOREVER” for about 12 hours before being replaced with the more family-friendly “SO CLOSE YOU CAN SMELL IT.”
