Stupid alleged Florida pot thieves busted with plants hanging out of car window

"I have no idea what you are talking about, officer."

If you live in a state where marijuana is illegal - like, say, Florida - the smart thing to do is to keep your cannabis plants out of view of the general public. That means parading them around town in the back seat of your car with the top buds sticking out the rear window should be avoided at all costs. And if you do, don't break other blatantly obvious laws like driving at night without your lights.

Apparently, Clearwater, Florida's Justin Goodloe, 20, and Allen Barnes, 19, completely missed that memo.

Most potheads would say that weed makes sex better, but few have applied the stuff as a lubricant. That is, until last month in Los Angeles, when Mathew Gerson, 40, launched Foria, which he claims is the first THC-infused lubricant for women.

Gerson, who has in the past peddled vegan condoms, says he made the first batch of Foria (taken from the word euphoria) right in his kitchen in Southern California. His first round of test subjects? They included his sister and his mother.

Lawyers have been known to use some pretty outlandish gimmicks to promote themselves. But one Denver DUI attorney is taking a route that has some people rolling up in laughter.
Or just rolling up.

Jay Tiftickjian of Tiftickjian Law Firm has been giving away packs of rolling papers featuring the phrase "Enjoy the trip, but don't drive high" to smoke shops, dispensaries, record stores and anywhere else he thinks might take them. The packs also have his office's contact information and tips on how to avoid a DUI under the cover.

The story of Richard Kirk allegedly killing his wife after eating a pot cookie has spread like wildfire. But what news reports aren't telling you (or are burying at the bottom of their stories) is that the guy was also potentially on prescription painkiller drugs. But apparently people will still believe that marijuana is somehow more dangerous than prescription painkillers.

One of the most talked about new brands at the American Glass Expo (A.G.E.), held this past January in Las Vegas, was HIVE Ceramics and their gleaming white depictions of everyday dabbing tools typically made from quartz or titanium. Domeless ceramic nails in all sizes, glossy white ceramic "Flower Bowls", dabbers, hash screens, and, of course, they figure you must have the "HIVE Medical Grade Ceramic Carb Cap w/ Dabber".

For all the publicity that the new product cultivated, from the A.G.E. show in January to a targeted social media marketing campaign, nobody seemed to know where to get one, or anyone who had actually tried one. For every new fan of the brand, or "Like" on the Facebook page, there have been an equally growing number of skeptics who can't help but wonder what has happened to all the hype.

Hold onto to your e-cigarettes and vape pens while you can, people, because using them in Los Angeles might soon be banned in the same places that prohibit lighting up regular smokes including beaches, bars and restaraunts.

The L.A. City Council today will consider a new motion to be introduced by Councilman Mitch O'Farrell that would treat electronic devices the same way that cigarette smoking is regulated in town. LA Weekly has more.

Fallout builds from marketing by "non-flammable" solvent maker ZHO

Last week, CHAMPS Trade Show and B2B Expo landed for the first time ever in Denver, Colorado, bringing with it hundreds of vendors and thousands of buyers from all over North America for a 3-day meet and greet at the Convention Center downtown. Those fortunate enough to gain entrance to the event were treated to amazing wholesale deals on everything from old school handcrafted artwork, to the hottest cutting edge technology, and cannabis ambassadors Tommy Chong and Bob Snodgrass could be seen perusing the various booths, undoubtedly amazed at how far the scene has come.

But amid the rows of apparel, functional glass, e-cigarette and/or herbal supplement booths stood two gentlemen behind a long, nondescript table littered with eye-catching but similarly nondescript flyers, repeatedly doing a demo where it appeared that they were "blasting" butane through a tube - indoors at the Denver Convention Center.
