Did Snoop Dogg Smoke Weed At The White House?
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, July, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
I have been a big fan of Snoop Dogg ever since I heard the song ‘Deep Cover’ with him and Dr. Dre, which they made for the soundtrack of the movie with the same name. By the time he was featured on Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ I was already obsessed with him, and when ‘Doggystyle’ hit stores when I was in middle school, he had already solidified himself as one my favorite music artists of all time. I have been to Snoop Dogg concerts multiple times, and one of my favorite Weed Blog moments was when I was in Denver in 2013 and got to attend a party that was hosted by Snoop Dogg.
While reading articles this week I came across an article on Marijuana.Com that talked about Snoop Dogg getting asked by Jimmy Kimmel if he had smoked weed in a White House bathroom. Below was Snoop’s response:
I said, “May I use the bathroom for a second?” And they said, “What are you gonna do, Number 1 or Number 2?” I said, “Number 2.”…The C.I.A. or the F.B.I. [asked]. The alphabet boys. So I said, “Look, when I do the Number 2, I usually, you know, have a cigarette or light something to get the aroma right. And they said, “Well you know what? You can light a piece of napkin.” I said, “I’ll do that.” And the napkin was this [puffs blunt].
I don’t know if Snoop was joking or serious, but either way, it’s pretty awesome that a stoner of Snoop Dogg’s caliber was even allowed at the White House. If I was there, I don’t know that I would have the balls to smoke in their bathroom, but then again, I’m not Big Snoop!

Football Hall Of Famer Applies For Medical Marijuana Dispensary License
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Fri, May, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
Jonathan Ogden, retired Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle, has applied for a medical marijuana dispensary license in Nevada, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. There are a limited number of licenses available in Nevada, so it is still unclear whether or not Ogden will own a dispensary.
One hundred and nine other companies have filed applications, and only 66 will be licensed this year, 40 of which will reside in Las Vegas (Clark county) where Ogden has applied. Applicants must also show they have $250,000 in liquid assets and have a licensed physician as the medical director to apply.
Hopefully, the NFL will feel the pressure of having Hall of Fame leaders like Ogden publicly support medical marijuana. The NFL’s stance on medical marijuana hasn’t evolved to the same extent as that of the nation at large, and the organization still imposes strict laws on players via steep fines and suspensions. However, with the NBA and NCAA rethinking their marijuana-use policies, perhaps, the NFL will move in the direction of acceptance.
Tommy Chong To Get His Own Brand Of Marijuana In Colorado
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Mon, April, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
In a move that seems to be a no-brainer, a marijuana store in Pueblo, Colorado has entered into an agreement with Tommy Chong to use his name and product endorsements at their store. The deal includes a marijuana strain that will be developed and named after Tommy Chong, as well as other products.
The store that Tommy Chong is partnering up with is called ‘Marisol Therapeutics’, which I’m assuming is going to see a huge increase in business due to the partnership they have with Tommy Chong. It’s reported that the strain and products carrying the Tommy Chong brand will be high CBD related. This is great news for people that want the medical benefits of CBD. Although, I wish there was another strain bred for high THC. I guess only time will tell if that happens.
This is not the first time that Tommy Chong has done endorsements with the marijuana industry. The first one that comes to mind for me was the now infamous ‘Chong Bongs’ that he did in the early 2000′s. That endorsement deal resulted in Tommy Chong serving a stint in prison, even though he didn’t make them. Hopefully the feds don’t try to make an example out of him again due to his new deal.
Contrary to initial reports, Tommy Chong does not own Marisol Therapeutics, nor is he an investor in the shop. Colorado law requires all investments in marijuana businesses be made by someone who has been a Colorado resident for at least two years. I won’t be surprised to see more marijuana celebrities getting endorsement deals. If anyone wants to create a ‘Johnny Green’ line of products, feel free to contact me. Although, I don’t think I’ll bring 1/100th of the star power that Tommy Chong does
Allstar Blake Griffin Endorses Medical Marijuana Use In The NBA
Category: Celebrities | Posted on Thu, April, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
In an interview with Rolling Stone yesterday, Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers voiced his support of medical marijuana use to treat pain in the NBA. Currently, the NBA has strict penalties for drug use, which typically lead to suspensions and fines. It was only in 2011 that the NBA stopped testing for marijuana use in the off-season, but now that marijuana is in the limelight, its place in the NBA, as a form of medical treatment for pain, has come into question.
Griffin was asked:
The NFL might let players use medical marijuana to treat pain. If you had a vote, would the NBA do the same?
It doesn’t really affect me, but so many guys would probably benefit from it and not take as many painkillers, which have worse long-term effects. So I would vote yes. I just think it makes sense.
Griffin joins the chorus of other outspoken athletes like Larry Sanders of the Milwaukee Bucks, who said earlier this year, “I believe in marijuana and the medical side of it.”
Like any professional sport, the need for painkillers is a part of the game, and, as Griffin pointed out, the harmful long-term effects of some painkillers makes medical marijuana use an alluring alternative. Even the World Anti-Doping Agency and the UFC have begun by changing their thresholds of permissible amounts of marijuana.
