Rapper in a wrapper: Pac’s friends claim they rolled his ashes into a blunt and smoked him.

​Members of The Young Outlawz rolled up Tupac Shakur’s ashes into a blunt and smoked them after the rap legend was murdered in 1996, the reunited group claims.

In what has certainly proven to be a big source of publicity for group’s reunion, The Young Outlawz claimed they based their actions on Pac’s wishes as expressed in the lyrics of one of his songs, reports Peter C. Aitken of the New York Daily News.
Members of the reunited group, originally formed by Tupac after his release from prison in 1995, addressed the long-standing rumors in a new video for VladTV.
“Yeah, it’s definitely true,” said Young Noble, reports the Daily News. “I think it was the night of, we had a little memorial for him, with his mom, his family and shit. We hit the beach, do a lot of the shit he liked on the beach. Some weed, some chicken wings, he loved orange soda and all that kind of shit. Pac loved that shit, so we were giving him our own farewell that night.
“I forgot which one of us came up with it, like we need to go and do that, but we twisted up some of that Great Grandaddy California Kush and mixed the big homie with it,” Young Noble said.
Another member of The Young Outlawz, E.D.I., took credit for the macabre idea.

Pete Shumlin: “We need to have an honest conversation with Vermonters about changing laws that are diverting resources and attention from real problems, and filling our prisons up with folks that shouldn’t be there”

​Gubernatorial candidate Pete Shumlin will be at the University of Vermont next week along with other speakers to discuss marijuana decriminalization at an event sponsored by Marijuana Resolve, a Vermont non-profit focused on cannabis policy reform issues.

“We need to have an honest conversation with Vermonters about changing laws that are diverting resources and attention from real problems, and filling our prisons up with folks that shouldn’t be there,” Vermont Senate President Pro Tem Shumlin said in June as he called for marijuana decriminalization.
“I believe it is a mistake to be sending young people on second, third, fourth offenses to prison on marijuana-related charges,” said Shumlin, who has previously sponsored a decriminalization bill. “That’s where we could make a difference.”
If elected governor, Shumlin has pledged he will work to pass legislation that will make possession of up to an ounce of marijuana a civil, rather than a criminal, violation, punishable by a $100 fine without the possibility of jail time.
