Trump Tuesday: Jimmy Fallon’s Trump doesn’t like mean names, makes an exception

Jimmy Fallon’s Donald Trump doesn’t like mean names, but for Fear author Bob Four-Eyed No-Talent Soup-Breath Woodward, he’ll make an exception. Fallon-Trump addressed the nation last night to dispute the allegations in Woodward’s bombshell Fear, taking time to note that he’s usually not so thin-skinned about things.

“Firstly, addressing criticism is very out of character for me,” said NBC’s Tonight Show host. “It really is, because I’m usually very thick-skinned and I’m not easily offended.” And, in true Richard “I Am Not A Crook” Nixon style, Fallon’s raccoon-eyed Trump declares, “I am not an idiot.”

Utah: Mormon leaders call for new medical-marijuana plan in months

Mormon church leaders are calling for Utah lawmakers to pass medical-marijuana legislation by the end of the year even as they urge people to vote against a ballot measure that would legalize medical marijuana in the state.

Church leaders say they oppose the ballot measure because they believe it could allow recreational users get marijuana in Utah if it passes in November, but they still want patients with serious medical needs to have access, the Deseret News reported Sunday.

“This isn’t ‘let’s wait till next year to have a conversation.’ It needs to be dealt with soon. There’s an urgency to accomplish this,” said Jack Gerard, a leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Home delivery for medical marijuana? Michigan regulators consider it

It may not have a 30-minute guarantee, but medical marijuana patients may be able to get home delivery of their weed later this year.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs held a public hearing Monday on proposed rules governing medical marijuana. The biggest change in the rules is allowing for home delivery of cannabis for people with medical marijuana cards.

It’s an issue that has been contemplated by state regulators for months. “Now that the (Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation ) has had enough time to research the issue, we’ve decided that it is a benefit for the state’s patients and it can be done in a safe manner,” said David Harns, spokesman for LARA.

Could marijuana give wine a run for its money?

In competition for 'inebriation dollars' as pot use gets wider legal nod in US, some big drinks firms are investing big bucks in cannabis trade. Could marijuana knock wine off its throne?

As pot use - medicinal but especially recreational - is legalised in more US jurisdictions, an unusual relationship is becoming increasingly apparent between the wine and cannabis industries. There is symbiosis but also competition, often with a whiff of humour.

The combination of adderall and marijuana

More people are embracing the Adderall and weed combination, but we don’t know much about how they really interact.

A way to level up, or a dangerous drug cocktail? There’s lots of enthusiasm and skepticism out there about the weed and Adderall, aka “weederall,” combination, and plenty of misleading and concern-trolling information about taking the two together.

And that makes learning actual, useful, credible info about the combo difficult. But don’t worry, we’ve done the digging for you. Depending on who you ask, Adderall and weed are an ideal combo, a perfect pair of stimulant and depressant. Yet others who’ve combined the two have had unpleasant and sometimes distressing experiences involving racing hearts and shallow breathing.

Former U.S. Attorney believes ‘enforcement of cannabis laws was immoral.’

As Missourians prepare to vote in November on whether to legalize medical marijuana, proponents have support from someone who used to prosecute federal laws.

Former U.S. Attorney for Kansas Barry Grissom said Saturday that the federal classification of marijuana as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, along with heroin, is “absurd” and he said advocates of marijuana legalization were patriots because they are standing up for individual liberty. As a federal prosecutor, Grissom said, “I soon became a true believer that enforcement of cannabis laws was immoral.” Grissom was the keynote speaker at a conference in Kansas City of the Missouri Cannabis Industry Association.
