Boxing Champion Wilder Charged with Pot Possession
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor marijuana possession, but his lawyer says the marijuana found in his car did not belong to him.
Police in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, said in a statement that they arrested Wilder on Wednesday afternoon after they found marijuana in his Cadillac Escalade. Wilder, 31, was initially stopped for a window tint violation. Officers searched the car after smelling marijuana and found a small amount in the vehicle’s console.
Wilder was charged with second-degree marijuana possession, a misdemeanor, and released on $1,000 bond.
Wilder’s attorney Paul Patterson told The Associated Press that Wilder said the marijuana did not belong to him. Patterson said that Wilder had just returned from an out-of-town trip, in which he had been driving another vehicle, and selected the Escalade to run errands around Tuscaloosa.
How Pot Helped Actor Charlie Hunnam Become King Arthur
NEW YORK (AP) — Charlie Hunnam says he convinced director Guy Ritchie to cast him as King Arthur after the two bonded over marijuana – talking about it, not indulging in it.
“I heard Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur’ and I thought, ‘That’s a brilliant idea,’ and I just sort of saw it right away and wanted to be a part of it,” said Hunnam while promoting the film Wednesday. “And so, we presented that to Guy, my agent, and he just really wasn’t interested. And I said, ‘That is just unacceptable, my friend.'”
So Hunnam booked a trip to London on a week off from filming “Sons of Anarchy” and landed a meeting with Ritchie. He had a standard pitch raring to go but quickly learned Ritchie didn’t want to even talk about the movie.
Montel Williams reveals how smoking marijuana every day for 17 years changed his life
Former television personality Montel Williams has used cannabis nearly every day for 17 years. But he hasn't smoked it in over a decade.

You never forget your first or your best. Right?
A few months ago, I was discussing the cannabis industry with Brendan Hill, drummer of Grammy-winning U.S. band Blues Traveler. The musician had opened a dispensary, Paper & Leaf, in Bainbridge Island, Washington, in 2015, so we were talking about going into the marijuana business and changing the stigma around it.
At one point, I decided to ask about both his first and his best joint. And damn, I’m glad I did!
As many blues bands, Blues Traveler is sort of an improvisational group, Hill commenced.
Donald Trump Condemns Snoop Dogg on Twitter for Satirical Video
A satirical music video featuring the rapper Snoop Dogg and a clown called Ronald Klump is the latest piece of pop culture drawing the attention and ire of President Trump.
On Wednesday, in yet another of his trademark early morning Twitter bursts, the president took the extraordinary step of invoking “jail time!” in response to the clip, which depicts Snoop Dogg pointing a toy pistol toward the Klump character. When the rapper pulls the trigger, a sign that says “bang” drops from the barrel in the style of classic prank guns; Klump is later shown in chains.

On a national tour to promote its release in paperback, Proops recently shared a smoke and a few laughs with us on the way to his next public appearance. So we asked if he gets a lot of herbal gifts while on the road, and who’s got the best stuff.
