Amanda Bynes wears aqua wig to court in marijuana bong case
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Wed, July, 10th 2013 by THCFinder
Amanda Bynes wore a long aqua wig, false eyelashes and black sweatpants and a tank top for a brief court appearance Tuesday on allegations that she chucked a marijuana bong out the window of her 36th-floor Manhattan apartment.
The 27-year-old actress did not speak during the hearing that lasted mere minutes, but she drew a throng of photographers and television cameras as she entered and left the criminal court building in lower Manhattan. Neither she nor her attorney spoke to reporters outside court.
Bynes was arrested May 23 after building officials at her midtown apartment called police to complain that she was rolling a joint and smoking pot in the lobby.
Officers went to her apartment, where they said they saw heavy smoke and a bong sitting on the kitchen counter. They said she tossed the bong out the window in front of them, according to prosecutors. A day later, in her first court appearance, she wore a disheveled blond wig.

Jamaica Bans Smoking Tobacco, Marijuana Is Another Matter
Category: News | Posted on Wed, July, 10th 2013 by THCFinder
Banning smoking in public places is not all that uncommon as popular destinations worldwide look to promote a healthy environment for visitors to enjoy. But to some in the Bob Marley-induced culture of Jamaica, tobacco smoke is not the issue.
The new law of the land goes into effect on July 15, when visitors will no longer "have to involuntarily inhale tobacco smoke, with its over 40 carcinogens," said Jamaica's minister of health Fenton Ferguson in a Jamaica Observer article. Jamaicans get that, responding with support for the move to ban cigarette smoking.
On another smoke-related front, Jamaica's Ganja Law Reform Coalition (GLRC) argues that marijuana is a plant with various uses, including environmental and recreational. They propose for marijuana to be taxed and regulated, something not on the agenda of minister Ferguson.
Choosing instead to address other health concerns including excessive alcohol consumption and identifying the contents of fast food, Ferguson insists that "tobacco is the one that a little bit of smoke, a little puff every now and again is dangerous for you."

Washington State's Marijuana Logo Nixed As Too Weed-Friendly
Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
A proposed logo for marijuana products in Washington state appears to have been too obvious, in hindsight.
Last week, regulators in the state scrapped the logo, which would have appeared on packaging for all recreational cannabis products, in response to pressure from critics who said the design (pictured below) glamorized marijuana culture.
Washington legalized pot last year, empowering the state's Liquor Control Board to write rules that will govern retail cannabis sales. As part of the process, an in-house designer came up with the logo that, by law, must mark all products that include cannabis as an ingredient.
"The intention behind it, of course, was to readily identify marijuana products," Mikhail Carpenter, a spokesperson for the liquor board, told The Huffington Post. "When you're dealing with extracts or brownies, you need to make sure you identify them as containing cannabis."
