A moose rummaging his way through a Burlington, Vermont neighborhood is apparently enough of a reason for police to search private property without a warrant. At least, that’s the precedent set over the weekend.
Burlington police were called to help out the Vermont Fish and Game wardens in the area who were tracking down a moose wandering through a residential neighborhood. While searching high and low for the massive moose, police apparently made their way through people’s private property – which is how they came upon 32 pot plants locked in a shed.

A day after a bill that would ban the sale of bongs and certain pipes in Florida overwhelming passed the Florida House, its sister bill found similarly broad support in the Senate. The bill passed the legislative body 31-2 Friday, and will now head to Gov. Rick Scott.
Though, the bill has been considerably watered down since its inception and would have virtually no effect. Miami New Times has the rest.

Bad news, Florida ganja smokers, glassblowers and headshop owners. The Florida state House voted 112-3 on a bill that bans the sale bongs and pipes that could be used to smoke marijuana.
Ex-crackhead Rep. Darryl Rouson believes that The Pot is a gateway drug to things like The Crack. Therefore, he sponsored the bill to ban all bongs, glass bowls, roach clips, and other things that can be used as a marijuana smoking device, such as a two-liter bottle and duct tape (although, how these things can be policed is anyone’s guess). Miami New Times has the rest of the story on this ridiculously stupid law.

It must be getting hot in Arizona. Our friends at the Phoenix New Times have a pair of stories worth repeating – so that they never are repeated again:
First up, there’s Jorge Valencia who police say was just out there in the open using Facebook to sling herb like it was no big deal (Editor’s note: it shouldn’t be). Nobody told Jorge about privacy settings apparently, because police were able to see him post about what he had and how much “dope money” he’d been making.
Next up, we’ve got Stephanie Lopez who was allegedly smoking some herb in her car when police pulled her over (in the drive-through of the Burger King). Police officer didn’t find the herb right away and Lopez denied it initiatlly, but later admitted to the cop she had it and pulled it out of her vagina. No word on if it was XXX Diesel or (I know this is bad) Pussy Kush.

Can you share with your buds a bit more marijuana than you should legally have and get away with it? Can you have weed for, say, a small party and still not have to face deportation for felony “intent to distribute?”
In an amazing sign of the country’s changing attitudes toward pot, the U.S. Supreme Court said sure, why not? Have that cannabis. Don’t worry about being sent back to where ever, even if you’re a “noncitizen:” Dennis Romero at the L.A. Weekly has the full story.

What better way to get someone to act natural than for them to not even know they are smuggling anything in the first place, right?
That was the case with a 33-year-old Mexican woman who works days in San Diego. She crossed the border around 3 a.m. Friday on her way to work. She got there earlier than expected, so she decided to chill out in her car and likely take a little cat nap before her shift.

A good solid base, proper nutritional supplements, attention to detail, and experience – all important aspects of being a successful mixed martial artist, and also key ingredients in growing great weed.
Just ask longtime UFC referee, Josh Rosenthal, who agreed to a plea deal with the U.S District Attorney’s office in January of this year, after federal agents discovered 1,356 marijuana plants growing in a warehouse owned by he and an associate.
Facing charges of growing an estimated six million dollars’ worth of illegal weed, Rosenthal’s next scheduled court appearance is at the U.S. District Court, on May 17th to face sentencing. He had originally pleaded not guilty to the charges in October 2012, but struck his plea deal earlier this year, admitting his guilt. Rosenthal was facing 10 years in federal prison and a ten million dollar fine, but now he is expected to see that sentence reduced to around 3 years of jail time, stiff fines, and a 5 year probation that will subject him to random searches.
