Bob Lobel: Medical marijuana saved me from addiction

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Sun, October, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

Boston sportscasting icon Bob Lobel is one of the hundreds of patients in Massachusetts who say they have found an effective substitute for opioids by using medicinal marijuana.

The 71-year-old longtime television reporter and anchor has dealt with chronic pain for years, the result of numerous surgeries: He’s had two knee replacements, two rotator cuff surgeries, four back surgeries and, in separate accidents, fractured the tops of both femurs.

“That was brutal,” Lobel told the Herald, referencing the femur breaks. The constant pain left him taking a variety of opioids.

“My issue was strictly pain,” he said. “I didn’t want to take any more OxyContin or oxycodone or Percocet, for a variety of reasons. The biggest thing I was worried about was addiction. But they also made me tired and it was hard to function and I couldn’t go on TV all drugged up.”

Lobel said pure curiosity led him to check out a medical marijuana event several months ago at the Castle at Park Plaza in Boston. It was there he met Dr. Uma Dhanabalan of the Uplifting Health and Wellness clinic in Natick. Dhanabalan recommends patients for medicinal marijuana certificates in Massachusetts and has been a strong advocate for using cannabis as a way to treat those who might otherwise find themselves hooked on opioids.

All of these CEOs have admitted to smoking marijuana

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, September, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

 

Some CEOs characterize it as a youthful indiscretion, while others say they’ve been at it for years. Either way, it’s not career destroying.

Earlier this month, at the second Republican presidential debate, former Florida governor Jeb Bush admitted to smoking marijuana “40 years ago.” For those who remember former candidate Bill Clinton’s tortured claim that he had smoked pot but never inhaled, it’s a sign of how much the times have changed.

Medical marijuana is now legal in 23 states. In Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Washington and the District of Columbia, you can legally toke up for purely recreational purposes. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, arrests for simple possession are on the rise, but otherwise, the drug has never been more mainstream.

Men's Wearhouse founder George Zimmer says he supports marijuana legalization

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Wed, September, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

 

“This is the biggest con that has been perpetrated on this country in the last century.”

George Zimmer, the founder of Men’s Wearhouse, was the keynote speaker at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo on Friday where he delivered a speech in favor of marijuana legalization, LAist reports.

His love of pot is well documented. He told CNBC that he has been smoking regularly for 50 years, joking, “As you can see, it’s really impacted me in a negative way.” The man has done pretty well for himself considering he’s worth $150 million.

Zimmer donated $50,000 to Proposition 19 in 2010, which would have legalized marijuana in California had it been approved. He has even considered investing in a marijuana-related startups, but decided against it when he realized that the IRS does not allow regular business deductions for dispensaries.

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, September, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

Rapper-turned-tech-investor Calvin Broadus, better known as Snoop Dogg, is now a startup founder, too: he’s launching Merry Jane, a marijuana lifestyle site that he said will be “the encyclopedia to the cannabis world.”

Snoop laid out plans for Merry Jane on stage Monday at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference: the site will be a gathering place for everyone from those curious about cannabis to seasoned smokers and will feature things like original video content, including a series called “Deflowered,” where people get high and describe a new experience they had while enjoying marijuana.

As a budding venture capitalist, Snoop has already dabbled in investing in a few startups, usually with a focus on marijuana. His fund is called Casa Verde Capital and invested earlier this year in Eaze, an on-demand weed startup. He as also invested alongside actor Jared Leto in Robinhood, a free stock trading platform.
