Most NBA players want legal, league-sanctioned pot, suggests TMZ poll

Growing number of celebrities cashing in on pot business

The number of companies looking to cash in on marijuana is growing, including some with celebrity backers, like Melissa Etheridge, reports CBS News correspondent Gigi Stone Woods.

Etheridge never really fit the rock star image.

"I saw alcohol, I saw what it did. I was too excited about music to let that ruin it. So, all of the drugs days in the '80s and '90s, I really let that go by without ever getting involved in it," she said.

"It helped with the psychological effects of being on chemo and trying to understand what's happening to you," she said.

Synthetic cannabis is now considered to be one of the most dangerous of all recreational drugs, according to an annual survey.

I Tried a Cannabis Massage and This Is What Happened

I know what you’re thinking: Did it get you high?

That’s all anyone asked me after I got a massage with cannabis cream in Denver, where marijuana is legal.
While I consider myself a connoisseur of spas and weed (only where it’s legal, of course), I still wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from the LoDo Massage Studio.
