Driver Finds Scratch on Car—with an Apology, $40 and Half a Joint
Imagine leaving work only to find a scratch on your bumper and no note in sight. That’s not the best discovery to make before sitting in rush hour traffic with your own thoughts. Better keep that road rage to a minimum though. The American Automobile Association (AAA) has found that aggressive driving is responsible for more than half of car accidents in the United States. What would it take to chill you out? One person in Colorado hoped $40 and half a joint would do the trick.
SCRATCH & STASH
From the “Mad Pooper” to this, Colorado has had its fair share of strange news recently. Fortunately, the person being inconvenienced this time was compensated.
Mandi Shepard wondered what happened when she left work at 5 p.m. and found her back bumper scratched. To her dismay, there was no note left behind-so it looked like she would have to put up with the aesthetic flaw or come out of pocket for a buffing.

Massachusetts Courts Strike Down Roadside Sobriety Tests for Weed
The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts issued a unanimous ruling Sept. 19, voiding court testimony based on roadside sobriety tests administered to drivers suspected of driving while high. As the state prepares to roll out legalization, the ruling helps address ongoing questions about how cannabis might affect driving.
AN IMPORTANT RULING
According to the Boston Globe, the court found that while sobriety tests are effective when it comes to finding drunk drivers, there is no scientific consensus that the same roadside sobriety tests are effective or reliable at finding drivers under the influence of cannabis.
The court stated that while there is clear scientific evidence that such field sobriety tests can be used to measure blood alcohol content of at least 0.08 percent, no scientific evidence exists showing a correlation between performance on these tests and “marijuana intoxication.”
The famed Chem Dawg, aka Chemdawg, is one of the most potent Marijuana strains in existence. Originating in mystery and legend, Chem Dawg was supposedly found as a seed in a bag of high-quality bud bought by the strains namesake, who is now breeding various new varieties with these genetics. Chem Dawg is powerful medicine, with a strong smell of pine-sol and jet fuel, and a very strong high which can be too strong and anxiety-producing for less-experienced smokers. As the progenitor of many Kush and Diesel varieties, Chem Dawg is a proud parent of many currently popular marijuana strains.
L.A. presses forward with proposed rules for marijuana businesses despite industry concerns
Los Angeles lawmakers tentatively backed a sweeping set of proposed regulations for businesses that grow, sell, process and distribute marijuana Monday, the next step toward giving cannabis the stamp of local legitimacy.
But industry groups said that recent changes to the proposed rules would force existing marijuana growers and manufacturers to shut down as they wait to get city licenses, devastating the industry and triggering layoffs.
