With cannabis taking over the US (and pretty much the rest of the world), the headlines about the plant are everywhere! Every news station has at least one marijuana related story a day and some of the headlines were definitely made to make stoners laugh... Or perhaps they actually were made by stoners. Either way, enjoy this list of awesome cannabis related news headlines from the last couple of months.
- Case Of The Munchies
Seattle Cops Giving Stoners Bags Of Chips
At Hempfest in Seattle last year, stoners were given bags of Doritos by police officers that were present at the event. This is a perfect example of how cops should be acting, as compared to how they're acting.
- State Blazes New Trail, Legalizes Pot
Vote Puts Washington to the left of Netherlands on marijuana law, sets up potential fight with the Feds
This was one of the headlines that was in a Washington paper when the state passed the legal marijuana initiative that would allow those over 21 years of age to purchase and smoke marijuana legally in the state, without a doctors recommendation or any sort of card other than state issued ID.
- Zoinks! Marijuana Substitute More Potent Than Pot... And Legal!
Finally, people began to catch on to the awful effects of the legal weed known as "spice". This terrible plague is a legal "herb" that may or may not be lawn trimmings sprayed with chemical compounds that resemble (but are not the same) as marijuana. The effects of the product are unknown in the long run but can cause severe panic attacks, violent episodes, and even suicide in some cases. But this paper managed to play on words a bit and liven up such a dreary story with a little Scooby reference.
- An officer of the law managed to make and eat pot brownies and when he realized what they were, he was a little freaked out. The officer called 911 and this was what he said to the operator, "I don't know, we made brownies. And I think we're dead. Time is going by really really really slow."
- Weed Catches Fire; Witnesses Say A Dragon Did It
When a group of Columbian police managed to intercept some bales of bud, they turned their backs and when they weren't looking, the bales lit up and started on fire. Witnesses didn't feel like helping much though... They claimed that a blue dragon has swooped down, spit fire on the weed, lit it up, and took off. The dragon was never found.
- Police Jail Man After 80 Call To 911 For Kool-Aid, Hamburgers, and Weed
A good life lesson? Don't call the cops and ask for munchies. Better yet, don't call them multiple times, asking for munchies. This guy learned this lesson the hard way when he was arrested for harassing the cops, asking for the cure to his hunger. Don't be that guy. Just call Dominos.
