Chelsea Handler Got an MMJ Card for Her 40th Birthday

Chelsea Handler Got an MMJ Card for Her 40th Birthday

Writer, comedienne, and Instagram nudist Chelsea Handler turned 40 yesterday, and to celebrate she gave herself the gift that keeps on giving: a medical marijuana card.

Handler has made no secret of her pot use in her books, stand up, and social media presence — much like almost every successful comedian. In fact, it was on Twitter that she made this grand announcement. Making her outspoken love of marijuana officially 'legal' shows that maturity really does come with age. That, or maybe she just wanted to be prepared for lower-priced, less-taxed MMJ when California finally legalizes next year. (Thought creates!)

Weed Is Officially Legal in Alaska! Bears Rejoice at More Snack Prospects

Weed Is Legal in Alaska! Bears Rejoice at More Snack Prospects

Scoot those moose carcasses down the heat locker, Alaska! You’ve got grass to grow.

Yesterday the 50th state became the third to officially legalize marijuana. Alaskans can now legally possess up to an ounce of marijuana and grow up to six marijuana plants in their homes.

When 53% of Alaskan voters passed Ballot Measure 2 in November, they ended the prohibition of marijuana. Remember, this is a state mostly associated with hunting, flannel, and raw survivalism — and they legalized weed before us dirty hippies here in California. You have to respect that.

Kosher Marijuana Coming to New York

Kosher Marijuana Coming to New York

Orthodox Jews in New York who want to partake in the cannabis scene, but can’t because of religious restrictions, will soon be getting their own kosher marijuana.

A Colorado firm and a Jewish group that offers kosher certification are teaming up to create a kosher cannabis. The kosher cannabis could be available to Orthodox Jews in the Empire State as soon as next year. The Jewish group, the Orthodox Union, wants to create a kosher certification program to start selling medical grade marijuana, cannabis-infused edibles, and other cannabis related products that will have the kosher stamp of approval.

Bill Maher Tells Kids How to Experiment with Pot: 'Be White'

Bill Maher Tells Kids How to Experiment with Pot: 'Be White'

While Bill Maher showing support for marijuana legalization is nothing new, his latest segment “Weed the People” does an eloquent job of summarizing the most recent arguments and calling out politicians both republican and democrat for their hypocrisies. He fits in a few jokes, too.

Since potential GOP presidential candidates Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz both recently admitted to smoking pot in their ‘misguided youths’ at fucking prep schools, Maher breaches one of his favorite subjects again.
