Man Finds 18-Year-Old Marijuana In His Nose

Sometimes weed smokers hide their stash TOO good.

According to NYDailyNews, an Australian man went to the doctor after suffering from severe sinus headaches got a lot more than a head high when he received his diagnosis. The 48-year-old ex-convict was told that he had a “rubber capsule containing degenerate vegetable/plant matter.”

That’s right, 18-years-ago the man snuck some weed into the prison that he was confined to and never retrieved it. The unidentified gentleman put the cannabis contraband inside a balloon and shoved it up his nose. When he went to get it, it was shoved further up the cavity and the man just assumed that he had passed it thru his system, except he didn’t.

The unidentified 48-year-old Sydney man’s plight was documented in the medical journal BMJ Case Reports, which called it “the first reported case of prison-acquired marijuana-based rhinolith.”

The doctors got it out and the man went on to be fine, but DAMN! SMH.

Kush Chronicles: House Passes SAFE Banking Act Allowing Cannabis Businesses To Operate In Financial Institutions

House Passes SAFE Banking Act

The owners and employees at your local weed shop are probably rolling one up to this good news.

According to MarketWatch and contrary to Republicans claiming Democrats are foregoing their work to impeach Donald Trump, the House managed to pass the SAFE Banking Act. This legislation will allow banks to do business with banks. Although marijuana is still federally illegal, cannabis businesses in legal states still have nowhere to do their banking. The constant influx of cash makes dispensaries targets for robberies and other crime.

Now it’s time for the Senate to do their job and pass this bill, unfortunately, Republicans like “Moscow” Mitch McConnell is staunchly anti-marijuana and doesn’t seem to give a damn if people get robbed or killed. However, semi-rational GOP-ers like Sen. Mike Crapo says he wants a vote before the end of the year.

Perhaps there are provisions that could be put in place that would prompt conservative support but until then we are skeptical of their support.

“There’s a line of thinking that McConnell could go along with a pot banking bill to help Republicans in the 2020 elections,” Katz said. “The tough re-election prospects of Republican Sen. Cory Gardner [a co-sponsor of the bill] of marijuana-friendly Colorado are often cited. But the benefit to Republicans, especially in the West and South, of supporting a bill that’s at least superficially pro-marijuana, is debatable.”

It seems silly to continue to fight America’s evolved view on cannabis with 33 states that have legalized medicinal use.

“I’m fairly confident that either the SAFE Act or STATES Act will be passed,” said Rob DiPisa, co-chair of law firm Cole Schotz’s Cannabis Law Group. “I think the industry has come too far. The cat’s out of the bag, and it’s not going to disappear, so banking needs to happen.”

This is meaningful legislation that will benefit all those who are looking to enter the cannabis industry, especially Black business owners who want to open dispensaries in our neighborhoods.

Kush Chronic-les: Canadian Company Conjures Up “Odorless” Cannabis For Your Clandestine Smoking Needs

Canadian Company Creates Odorless Cannabis

Smoking the loudest, most obnoxious-smelling weed is an honor and a privilege for most cannabis inhalers, but a Canadian company is hoping to quiet things down a bit with their newest silent strain.

According to Yahoo Finance, CannabCo Pharmaceutical Corp. is preparing to release a technologically advanced strain of Mary Jane that doesn’t smell like a game 7 locker room.

“A number of users, and people that are around cannabis smokers, complain about the smell, especially in enclosed areas, condos and apartments, and this technology addresses those concerns,” CannabCo president and chief executive officer Mark Pellicane wrote in a news release on Tuesday.

Yeah, ok, some folks are annoyed by the smell of weed, but they be musty and that offends people as well.

CannabCo claims its PURECANN technology “greatly reduces” cannabis odour when flower is combusted, and makes the smell “virtually undetectable” when dry product is in storage. The technology is also said to reduce harshness when smoking, and lessens day-after effects.

Let them tell it, this is the future of flower.

“There are no third-party gadgets, or devices on the part of the user. The end result is pure cannabis that doesn’t smell,” Pellicane added. “A woman can carry cannabis in her purse without having the odour concentrated or leaking out in her handbag.”

To the weed smokers amongst us, does this sound like a product you’d be interested in?

Boosie Charged With 2 Felonies For Marijuana Possession

If there’s one thing that Boosie is good at finding it’s trouble.

According to TMZ, the Louisiana rapper was pulled over last April and arrested for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. During the traffic stop officers also found a handgun and over $20,000 in cash money.

Luckily for Boosie, the cops weren’t really trippin’ about the pistol, but they had a big, hairy, veiny, hard-on for the weed.

There isn’t much explanation as to why the gun was no big deal, but the boys in blue have charged Boosie with 2 felonies stemming from the possession of pot.

The rapper and his passenger are both facing a year in prison if found guilty.

Ironically, this sounds stressful enough to make a brotha wanna roll one up.

Kush Chronic-les: Jay-Z Inks Multi-Year Partnership With Caliva Cannabis Company As Chief Brand Strategist

Jay-Z Named Brand Strategist Of Cannabis Company

Allow him to reintroduce himself, his name Hov, he now sells T-to-the-H-C.

According to Rolling Stone, Shawn Carter is now the Chief Brand Strategist of a cannabis company called Caliva. It is reported that he will help the company creative decisions, outreach efforts, strategy and also a major effort to rectify the issues surrounding social justice and legalization.

“Anything I do, I want to do correctly and at the highest level,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “With all the potential in the cannabis industry, Caliva’s expertise and ethos make them the best partners for this endeavor. We want to create something amazing, have fun in the process, do good and bring people along the way.”

We’re just gonna go ahead and assume that when Jay said “highest level” it was no pun intended.

“For Jay-Z to seek out Caliva as a partner is humbling and confirms our mission of being the most trusted name in cannabis,” says Caliva CEO, Dennis O’Malley. “To find that we were in complete alignment around our values and ethos was just a home run. We believe this partnership is unparalleled in this or any business and we could not be more pleased to be working with him and have him as our Chief Brand Strategist.”

The social justice angle of cannabis is one that falls in line with Jay’s foray into activism as he’s already executive produced the Kalief Browder film and played a significant part in helping Meek Mill get released from prison.

Who’s looking forward to smokings some Roc-A-Weed?!?

Summa Cum LOUD-e: Black Woman Named Marijuana Pepsi Takes High Road Over Lifelong Haters, Earns PhD At 46

Black Woman Named Marijuana Pepsi Vandyck Earns PhD

Yes, you read all of that correctly.

According to the Journal Sentinel, a Black woman with an unusual name has overcome a lifetime of haters and downtalkers to earn her doctorate degree.

46-year-old Marijuana Pepsi Vandyck, DOCTOR Marijuana Pepsi Vandyck, graduated from Cardinal Stritch University in Wisconsin last month. She says she absolutely refused to change her given name in order to show people that you can overcome things that people say will hold you back.

Teachers, classmates, bosses and even some friends refused to call her by her name and tried to opt-out for “Mary”. She wasn’t having it. Those criticisms even inspired Marijuana to title her dissertation: “Black names in white classrooms: Teacher behaviors and student perceptions.”

Her mother, Maggie (Brandy) Johnson, who still lives in Beloit, picked out her name and proclaimed that it would take her around the world. Her sisters, one older and one younger, got relatively common names, Kimberly and Robin.

When asked about her thoughts on the legalization of her namesake she says:

“My main concern are the individuals serving time for marijuana-related offenses. I would like to see all their sentences overturned. These people were locked up for making money from the sale of marijuana, and now that the government has figured out ways to make the money themselves, it is ‘legal’ and, further, encouraged.”

For the record, Marijuana says she’s never smoked and doesn’t drink Pepsi.

“I feel great. I party with drunk people; you can’t tell us apart.” She also doesn’t drink Pepsi or other soda except for an occasional fruity soft drink in an ice cream float.

God bless the good sis. Put some respect on her name, not a Swisher Sweet!
