Some people are taking this quite literally.

This weekend, Denver’s CBS4 reported about marijuana being advertised for free on Craigslist in exchange for donations or other offers, and questioned whether the practice was legal under Amendment 64; see the video below. But the folks behind 4 Strains Pipe & Tobacco are confident they’re doing nothing wrong in offering a small amount of cannabis as a bonus to folks purchasing other merchandise.
A drop of hash oil.

A hash oil extraction gone horribly wrong in San Diego left one man, 21, in critical condition burned over most of his body and a woman, 22, burned on her face, hands and feet. Officials haven’t released the names of the two, only that they were using cans of butane to extract hash oil in the extended-stay hotel.
Fire officials say they did about $600,000 in damage to the second floor hotel room and surrounding rooms of the Heritage Inn in San Diego across a channel from Sea World. A third person was hurt when the wall of his adjoining hotel room exploded. Officials told the U-T San Diego that this was the first hash oil explosion they had ever encountered.

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes.

If laughter is the best medicine, then Jason Mewes is quite healthy these days. We caught up with Mewes, best known as the talking half of the duo Jay and Silent Bob, in advance of tonight’s live taping of their successful (and hysterical) weekly comedy podcast, Jay and Silent Bob Get Old at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, Colorado.

A greener New Hampshire.

New Hampshire has three different marijuana related bills for state legislators to consider this session, including two bills concerning recreational cannabis use and one allowing for medical marijuana in that state.
Currently, possession of any amount can net you a year in jail and a $2,000 fine. Cultivation falls under sales and possession with intent to sell in that state and is based on weight. Anything over an ounce (roots, leaves, stalks and all) will get you seven years in prison and $100,000 in fines.

San Benito, TX police.
Not to be used as a floatation device.

Our sister blog Hairballs over at the HoustonPress reports this morning on Mexican national Jose Cabrera-Pastor, busted swimming across the Brownsville Ship Channel with nearly 100 pounds of pot strapped to him last Saturday. No word on if that was the original weight or if Cabrera-Pastor’s load had taken on water during his time at sea.
