Willie Nelson plans to open marijuana dispensaries across the United States

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, March, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

Ask Willie Nelson about his love of marijuana and he will likely direct you to his memoir, the awesomely titled Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings From the Road. That, or he’ll delightfully tell you about that one time he smoked pot on the roof of the White House. Soon enough, the legendary singer-songwriter will have something new to boast about: his very own brand of weed.

Yes, after being a longtime proponent and enthusiast of marijuana, Nelson is looking to get into the business of actually selling it. The product is called Willie’s Reserve, and it could be available to the public as early as 2016. It will also be distributed through physical stores, which Nelson and his family hope to open up across the US in states that’ve legalized marijuana. (For reference, Colorado’s estimated legal weed market is expected to reach $1 billion next year. Whew.)

According to an interview with Willie’s Reserve spokesperson Michael Bowman, the business is not just some fun, hobby-type venture, but “a culmination of Willie’s vision, and his whole life.” He adds:

Willie has spent a lifetime in support of cannabis, both the industrial hemp side and the marijuana side. He wants it to be something that’s reflective of his passion. Ultimately, it’s his. But it was developed by his family, and their focus on environmental and social issues, and in particular this crazy war on drugs, and trying to be a bright light amongst this trail as we’re trying to extract ourselves from the goo of prohibition.

Really he wants it, at the end of the day, to envelop what his personal morals and convictions are. So from the store itself to how they’ll work with suppliers and how things are operated, it’s going to be very reflective of Willie’s life.

Snoop Dogg Dishes on Getting High with Willie Nelson

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Tue, March, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Snoop Dogg has cleaned up his image from gangster rapper to multi-format entertainer, but he's looking to the past in a new series he's developing for HBO.

Snoop announced Friday—when he was giving the keynote address at South by Southwest—that he's working with Allen Hughes on the show about 1980s Los Angeles.

Snoop, a former gangster rapper, was born in Long Beach, California. Hughes' credits include "Dead Presidents," "Menace II Society" and "The Book of Eli."

"HBO is the number one network in the world as far as developing and having these types of shows come to life," he said. "This is a dream come true to be able to tell a story that's going to be told the right way on the right network."

In a wide-ranging interview Friday with his manager Ted Chung in Austin, Texas, 43-year-old Snoop discussed topics from getting high with Willie Nelson to meeting Dr. Dre.

Here's a breakdown:

BEING BAKED AND EATING FRIED CHICKEN

The chicken was fried, but Snoop and Willie Nelson were baked.

Snoop and Nelson collaborated on the song "My Medicine" and he said "it was love at first sight."

"We went in the green room, had a conversation and from there the conversation sparked up the idea of—yeah sparked up the idea of—me and Willie wanting to collaborate," he said as the audience at the Austin Convention Center burst into laughter.

Tommy Chong on Weed, Jail and Getting 'High With Every Beatle Except Paul'

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Wed, March, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

"The government always used to say, 'We don't know the real bad effects of marijuana. We've never been able to test it,'" Tommy Chong says in the perma-high drawl that made him a counterculture legend as half of Cheech and Chong. "Well, I'm a walking guinea pig. I've been testing it for well over 50 years. I came in fifth on Dancing With the Starsat 76. This old stoner waltzed right by professional athletes because of the marijuana."

In the decade since the comedian spent nine months in jail for sending bongs across state lines in 2004, Chong has become more active than ever in weed advocacy. Today, he is hanging out in his Los Angeles office early in the morning before going to the gym to speak to Rolling Stone about how legal marijuana has found itself in a state of limbo in our nation's capital.

Last year, Washington, D.C. citizens voted in a law that decriminalized weed in a way similar to how Colorado, Alaska and Washington state have done so, but a last-minute provision by Republicans – prohibiting the District from using tax dollars to "enact" the bill – has limited its efficacy. Adults are allowed to possess a maximum of two ounces of pot and grow up to six marijuana plants but the law prohibits its sale and regulation, according to The Washington Post.

Chong finds the whole situation absurd, if not for the fact it seems behind the times. "It's the pot that opened my mind 20 years ago," he says. "When I got high for the first time, when I was 18 years old, I got visions of how one could prosper in this world. Everything just got so clear." Besides, Chong says, pot isn't that dangerous: "You can't OD on marijuana," he says. "People have tried." He laughs.

 

What's your take on the current legal-weed situation in Washington, D.C.?
Typical Washington. You can smoke it, but you can't buy it and you can't sell it. It's so stupid. These guys are so lame. It's a money game. It's all about a paycheck for Washington, and the rich people are getting people in office that'll keep everybody's mind on everything else but raising taxes.

 

So you think that this legislation was written in a way to distract people?
Yes, totally. Looking at the political situation, it's self-serving for so many people, including the so-called righteous right. People are just doing things just for money.

Emmys 2014: Sarah Silverman's pot-filled e-cigarette brings marijuana into the 21st century

Category: Celebrities | Posted on Wed, August, 27th 2014 by THCFinder

The world now has the munchies for Sarah Silverman.
One day after the comic showed off her pot-filled e-cigarette on the Emmys red carpet, the future of marijuana moved from the back of a VW microbus to the cutting edge of technology.
It all started in an apparently unscripted moment with E! hostess Giuliana Rancic when Silverman — in a pot colored dress, no less — revealed more than her ample cleavage.
"This is my pot," she said. "Liquid pot."
With that the internet exploded. “Live your life girl!” tweeted actress Anna Kendrick to her nearly three million followers.
It’s no surprise that Hollywood partakes of the wacky weed — after all, celebs from Cheech and Chong to Snoop Dogg to the makers of “Weeds” have been high on pot for decades — but Silverman’s choice of delivery system got everyone buzzed.
 
"Seeing her Monday night was pretty awesome," says Christian Rado, whose L.A.-based company Vaporous Technologies makes the J-Pen vaporizer that Silverman prefers.
He touted the Jetson’s-like joint because it enables pot users to openly enjoy the popular and increasingly legal recreational drug yet waft very little smoke and almost none of the tell-tale scent of ganja.
With the e-cig, he said, pot lovers don’t have to "slink off somewhere secluded."
This being Hollywood, he also put in a plug for his liquid gold: "We make a high end product for the connoisseur."
Vape pens work by heating up and vaporizing a concentrated marijuana oil that is inhaled. The results are the same — go ask a teenager what they are — as smoking, but advocates for e-cigarettes say it is much less harmful on the lungs.
 
It's also a lot more discrete — unless you pull out your vapor pen on national television. Then again, Silverman has a medical marijuana prescription, so she can ride Puff the Magic Dragon anywhere in California except public places.
That means she could have been #HAF — the internet hashtag for, well, being tagged by hash — at the Emmy Awards. Silverman denied it, but when she accepted her award for outstanding writing for a variety special, she offered a monologue straight out of “Dazed and Confused,” mentioning how “we're just all made of molecules, and we're hurling through space right now.”
Silverman is not the only celebrity whose pen is mightier than the bong.
Earlier this year, Whoopi Goldberg wrote a column for The Cannabist called "My vape pen and I, a love story."
"When I show her to a friend, the reaction 99% of the time is: 'Holy s---, where did you get this and how can I get me one?'"
