Yesterday on Israeli national television, a prominent Israeli political figure announced that he had recently taken a toke or two of cannabis. Of course, had he been caught doing it in his homeland, without the proper medical permit to be doing so, he would be breaking the law.
So seeing a conservative member of Israel’s Home Party just blurt out a confession to the world may have been surprising to some, but only if they haven’t been paying attention to Yinon Magal and his rise in national politics.

Stephen Colbert isn’t going anywhere — other than CBS, where he’s been chosen to take over the Late Night franchise from David Letterman. But last week was his final episode of his signature show, The Colbert Report, on which he’s given plenty of coverage to cannabis. Below, check out one our favorite of all time.

Where does 25 equal 30, and 22.7 percent equal “most?”
The Arizona Republic’s “Fact Check: Keeping Arizona Honest” column, of course.
In Sunday’s paper, as a reader informed us this week, a fact-check completely flubs the evaluation of Mark Brnovich’s comment on TV last month about the state’s medical-marijuana patients.

“Who’s got the lighter?! Let’s spark the fire!”

There are states with medical and recreational marijuana laws on the books where a person can adhere to all of their specific state laws, pay all applicable local tax and licensing fees, and conduct a safe and honest business in the cannabis industry. But, in many cases, they still cannot get a company credit card with which to conduct the day-to-day merchant services that are essential to any type of business.
So it is pretty interesting to see singer Gwen Stefani, no stranger to some weed, featured in a new MasterCard television ad. It is even more interesting when you hear the song that MasterCard marketing execs chose to represent their multibillion dollar brand.

Across the pond this weekend, The Daily Mail (aka Britain’s version of Fox News) dropped their version of a bombshell story, claiming that they had found the source of the scourge of high grade weed that they claim is infesting their countryside.
A news rag known for its hardline conservative slant, The Daily Mail is hardly a trusted source for reliable cannabis news, or really any news for that matter, but their alleged insight into the growing pot market is so completely ass-backwards, it is really no wonder that the UK trails so far behind the US when it comes to cannabis reform.
