I like my fro, I can hide plenty joints in it
Police for the New Jersey Port Authority said Richard Thompson didn’t do that.
Investigators allege he had 50 grams of pot in his backpack when he showed up at the Fort Lee Municipal Court Thursday morning.
He was in court to answer to those charges, and went through the normal security screenings.
While he was being searched, officials allegedly found 50 grams of marijuana,two packages of rolling papers and an unrolled cigar wrapper commonly re-used to smoke marijuana, Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo told .
Thompson was arrested on marijuana and drug paraphernalia charges. The arresting officer, Steve Pisciotta, is the same cop who arrested Thompson on marijuana and drug paraphernalia charges back in May, according to the Cliffview Pilot.
Marty the Mouse became famous in 1974 after he made a home for himself in a box of marijuana stored in the evidence room of the San Jose, CA police station. Police were only able to lure him out by baiting a trap with marijuana seeds. (He ignored bacon, peanut butter, cheese, and a female mouse called Mata Hairy.) He became known as Marty the Marijuana Mouse.
But instead of killing him, he was first sent to UCLA to aid in studies of marijuana. Then he was returned to San Jose where he became a police mascot. When he died in Nov 1975, the nation mourned.
Accusations like this can really harsh a dude’s mellow.
A former UPS employee in Arizona is accused of stealing a package containing a $160,000 diamond and trading it for $20 worth of weed, ABC-15 reports.
Walter Earl Morrison, 20, thought that the package he allegedly swiped while unloading cargo at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix contained cash, according to a probable cause statement obtained by The Smoking Gun. In fact, the package contained one pricey stone.
Authorities say the “half-baked bandit” traded the diamond for the equivalent of two joints of marijuana.
The diamond was later recovered and returned to its intended recipient.
Morrison was arrested Sept. 16 on a felony theft charge. He is scheduled for arraignment Oct. 1.
Marijuana has been used as a medicinal drug for achieving euphoria since ancient times. Its use spread from China to India and then to North Africa and reached Europe at least as early as A.D. 500.
The first direct use dates from 2737 BC, in the writings of the Chinese emperor Shen Nung. It found its main use as a medication for rheumatism, gout, malaria, and oddly enough, absent-mindedness. Knowing of its intoxicating properties, the medicinal value was considered more important. In India though it was clearly used recreationally. The Muslims used it recreationally for alcohol consumption. It was the Muslims who introduced hashish, whose popularity spread quickly throughout 12th century Iran and North Africa.
The news: A new book claims that potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was an “enthusiastic pot user,” according to a quote from a former law school classmate.
Clinton recently denied ever having tried weed in an interview while promoting her book, claiming, “I didn’t do it when I was young. I’m not going to start now.”
However, after being against decriminalization during her 2008 presidential bid and calling for more research into its medical benefits, this time around, Clinton has recently said, “I think for people who are in extreme medical conditions and who have anecdotal evidence that it works, there should be availability under appropriate circumstances.”
It’s a somewhat noncommittal kind of support, but it is worlds away from her previous opposition to decriminalizing.
With the status quo. If Clinton was an “enthusiastic pot user” in college, she’s not much different from nearly half of the population. According to a 2013 Pew Research poll, 48% of Americans have tried cannabis at some point. Clinton’s political views on the topic are also shifting with the national trend, with amajority of the country in favor of legalization. Her statements signal favorable leadership for the pro-legalization majority.
Insult turned to favor. The book making the claim, Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine, is essentially a takedown of both Bill and Hillary Clinton’s political careers. Its timing suggests that it hopes to detract from Clinton’s anticipated 2016 presidential run. However, considering popular public support for marijuana legalization, accusations of pot use may simply make her seem more relatable. All in all, it could mean a higher IQ rating for Clinton and a better chance that we might have a cannabis-supportive president come 2016.
‘The Weed Fairy’ Visits Seattle, Gives out Pot
SEATTLE May 29, 2014 (AP)
By MANUEL VALDES Associated Press
A woman who calls herself the “Weed Fairy” distributed free nuggets of marijuana to people in Seattle over Memorial Day weekend, taping the free pot on fliers around a city neighborhood.
The woman, 23-year-old Yeni Sleidi, says she does it to amuse people and to give them a break from everyday stress.
She said 50 fliers had nuggets taped to them.
“People mostly laughed,” Sleidi said Wednesday.
The woman said she first came up with the idea in New York, where she lived during the government shutdown, because several of her friends were affected by it. She wanted to distract them from the stress. Her actions, though, drew plenty of coverage from the media.
“I’m not sure what the thought process was but I thought people would be amused by it,” she said.
The fliers posted in Seattle came with the message: “These are tough times. Take this weed.” Sleidi posted her free marijuana in one of Seattle’s most urban neighborhoods, known for its nightlife and counterculture.
Washington is one of two states that legalized recreational marijuana in 2012.
Sleidi said it was the first time she felt comfortable with attaching her name to her deeds.
“I felt so relaxed about it… I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it elsewhere in the country,” she said.
A call to the Seattle Police Department to ask about the pot distribution effort was not immediately returned.
Police in Charlotte, N.C., say that 500 pounds of marijuana are off the street thanks to a delivery mix up and a honest businessman.
Miguel Garcia, 35, is a car lover and the owner of Boom Boom Car and Audio, was confused when he received a big package from California at his business.
“The description said chrome accessories and dash kits and that’s basically what we sell. So my first thought was maybe a vendor had sent it to me to resell it,” he told WCNC.
Instead, Garcia found 500 pounds of marijuana, with a listed value of over $250,000.
His sister immediately called police.
“We never had that thought in our head to keep it. It’s one of those things, you have to have do the right thing,” Garcia said.
The quantity was so much that it took officers about an hour to stack up the pot and haul it away.
Police think the shipper never intended that the package be delivered because the instructions left a phone number.
