According to a Denver Police Department podcast (police departments now have podcasts? News to me…), calls and emails have already started flooding in from parents concerned that their kids will possibly be slipped cannabis edibles while trick-or-treating on Halloween night. In the latest DPD podcast, the interview segment is with two high-ranking members of the Denver "marijuana unit." Much of the podcast touched on the usual questions, like how much marijuana you can have on your person, growing regulations, and DUI limits.
The Marijuana Policy Project, which helped legalize recreational weed in Colorado, has launched an ad campaign to remind people to use edibles responsibly. The ads are inspired by what was once the number-one pain in The Project's ass: New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd’s well documented freakout on rocky mountain weed chocolate.
The Project’s campaign will feature billboards offering advice to tourists who have come to enjoy the state’s greenest pastures: “Don’t let a candy bar ruin your vacation.”
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame is hiring a designated blunt roller. (The Smoking Bud’s office empties.)
On Monday, the entrepreneurial rapper forewent CraigsList for Instagram and posted the want ad below.
That’s right, $50,000 per year, and all you have to do is roll exceptional blunts. To apply, post an image or video demonstrating your blunt-rolling abilities with #ICanRoll and wait for the job offers to come pouring in! (That was a joke.)
Word on the street is Seth Rogen has already submitted an application, so get busy rollin’!
The message is there, but the acting, oh the acting!
Comedian/pro-pot activist Steve Burke has created a parody of “You’re The One That I Want” from Grease in support of Florida’s Proposition 2, which will legalize medical marijuana in the state if it passes this November.
In a rewording worthy of Weird Al, “You’re The One That I Want” becomes “You’re the law that I want, you are the law I want. Yes on 2, honey!” Yes I’m serious, honey.
