Snoop Dogg detained at Norway airport for being in possession of marijuana, too much cash

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Thu, June, 28th 2012 by THCFinder
Snoop Dogg got busted by a drug dog in Norway Thursday morning.
 
The self-proclaimed cannabis connoisseur was packing 8 grams of marijuana when he was detained in customs at Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand.
 
Authorities discovered the sneaky stash when one of their customs drug dogs was released in the arrivals area and made a beeline for the superstar rapper.
 
Customs officers said they didn’t recognize the megastar at first and found him to be polite and cooperative, showing “no prima donna whims,” according to Norway’s Verdens Gang newspaper.
 
Because his stowed-away sensimilla was a small amount, Snoop was fined about $1,980 and released.
 
He was slapped with another fine of about $7,000 for carrying more cash than is legally allowed.
 
Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, is scheduled to perform in Norway Thursday night at the Hove Festival in the southern town of Kristiansand.
 
Shortly after the bust, the 40-year-old rapper posted a photo on Twitter that appeared to show him passing a joint.
 
"Smoking crip n. cuzns. Hahahahagahhaha,” read the caption.
 
The airport incident was the rapper’s second drug bust this year alone.
 
He was cited for possession of marijuana possession in Sierra Blanca, Texas, in January after authorities said they found several joints on his bus.

Tommy Chong Treats His Prostate Cancer With Cannabis

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, June, 12th 2012 by THCFinder
Actor-comedian Tommy Chong, one-half of the pot-loving pair “Cheech and Chong,” said he’s treating his “slow stage-one” prostate cancer with his favorite plant.
 
“I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis,” Chong, 74, told CNN Saturday. “So [legalizing marijuana] means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.”
 
Chong told the news site that he was diagnosed with the illness about a month ago, but he first experienced symptoms of the cancer about eight years ago while in jail after selling drug paraphernalia.
 
He no longer smokes marijuana because of “health reasons,” he told CNN, and he consumes the hemp oil at night so he “won’t be woozy all day.”
 
Cannabis has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to relieve symptoms of nausea and vomiting, and to help increase appetite in people with cancer and AIDS, according to the American Cancer Society. The most potent ingredient of medical marijuana is THC. The product comes in the form of an inhaler, pills and oil and it can also be smoked.
 
There are no other drugs that work as well as cannabis for treating the nausea and anorexia associated with cancer and its treatments, Dr. Donna Seger, associate professor of clinical medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tenn., told ABCNews.com in March.
 
It is unclear whether Chong has undergone chemotherapy or other treatments for the cancer, but treatment of stage 1 prostate cancer, which is only found in the prostate,  is often approached by the “watchful waiting” technique, when doctors allow time to pass to see the progression of the disease before they suggest surgery or medical intervention.
 
At least one doctor believes Chong’s promoting his self-described treatment is a disservice to other men with the disease.
 
“As a comedian, this is a really funny skit,” said Dr. Leonard G. Gomella, chairman of the department of urology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. “As a public figure who can get a forum, it is irresponsible. Had he been suffering from widely metastatic disease with bone pain and other devastations, perhaps there may be a role, but not for early disease.”

Tommy Chong Announces He Has Prostate Cancer

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, June, 11th 2012 by THCFinder

Tommy Chong, one half of the legendary comedy duo Cheech & Chong, recently announced that he has prostate cancer. He says he first noticed symptoms about 8 years ago while in prison on charges of selling drug paraphernalia, but was only diagnosed last month.

 

"I've got prostate cancer, and I'm treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis," Tommy told Don Lemon from CNN. "So (legalizing marijuana) means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested."

 

Tommy told CNN that he no longer smoke marijuana, but ingests hemp oil "at night, so I won't be woozy all day."

 

Tommy Chong has been a longtime advocate for marijuana law reform. He and Cheech Marin spent more than 2 decades on separate career paths after breaking up in the 1980’s. While Cheech tried to shed his “pothead” image, Tommy embraced it, playing the lovable Leo on That 70’s Show. The pair reunited to the joy of millions of cannabis and comedy lovers several years ago with a new comedy tour, one with marijuana legalization as the back drop. They continue to tour together, as well as having other projects in the works.

 

Tommy describes his prostate cancer "as a slow stage one (that I've) had for a long time." There is no word yet as to how Tommy’s announcement might affect his future career plans. For now it’s enough to hope that Tommy gets well.

 

It will also be interesting to see how Tommy’s hemp oil treatment progresses. Many of you know the story of Rick Simpson, and the testimonials of dozens of people who say their cancer was cured through the use of hemp oil. If Tommy Chong’s cancer is cured by hemp oil, it would put awareness of an amazing medicinal product to a whole new level.

Marijuana Possession Charges Against Suge Knight Dismissed

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, June, 11th 2012 by THCFinder
Suge Knight caught a break in court last week, when he was cleared of marijuana possession charges he caught during a traffic stop in Las Vegas back in February.
 
According to the Las Vegas Sun, the 41-year-old dodged the charges when prosecutors decided there was insufficient evidence in the case.
 
Las Vegas Municipal Court records show that Knight entered a no contest plea through his attorney Richard Schonfeld for driving without a license charge and Knight paid a $425 fine. All other charges were dismissed.
 
Knight was arrested in early February in Las Vegas after LVPD pulled him over at around 5:30 pm when he made an unsafe lane change in his black Bentley.
 
After authorities ran his name through the system, multiple warrants came up, which stemmed from minor traffic violations ... all of which he failed to appear. Suge was taken into custody, processed and released.
 
Police also said he had less than one ounce of marijuana in the car.
 
As of press time, Suge seems to have cleared everything up.
