Pot and the NFL: Ricky Williams
While the NFL has experienced unparalleled success of late, it faces one issue that could bring the good times to a grinding halt: Player safety.
The neurodegenerative disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) – the result of repeated traumatic brain injury on the field – has been discovered in an alarming number of deceased NFL players. Additionally, pharmaceutical addiction plagues the league as players battling injuries often rely on painkillers to get through games.
Incredibly, there is a natural, non-toxic medicine valued for its neuro-protective potential, healing properties and ability to reduce pain. Unfortunately, the league is not interested.

Rocking his own Leafs by Snoop lab coat, a Tweed hat and his usual bling, the world’s most renowned cannabis connoisseur paid a visit to the world’s largest medical marijuana greenhouse.
Snoop wanted to check out the buds growing at this 350,000-square-foot greenhouse in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada.

Study Shows Stoners at University are Getting Good Grades

In their Cannabis in College study, Inhale Labs confirmed that students who attend four-year accredited colleges or universities and smoke weed on a daily or near-daily basis (defined as over 20 times/month) are getting good grades—and there are a lot of them.
This growing demographic of college stoners has reached 10 percent, nearly doubling in the past two years. In 2014, that figure was 5.9 percent, according to University of Michigan’s Monitoring for the Future survey.
This Former Pot Smuggler Is Outlaw Folk’s Newest Star
Last week, Todd Snider’s mentoree, Rorey Carroll, joined him at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. The tour and collaboration have been long and strong, and Todd’s pride in his discovery shines through.
If only Rorey had as much faith.
“Welcome to an awkward 35 minutes with Rorey Carroll,” she began, moving on to confess to having snorted Adderall and taken “a few” shots of tequila before coming out to perform. She did look nervous and a little drunk as she told us about her last gig in NYC, playing in the subway tunnels for change. The change was clearly drastic on her psyche and in the cozy Gramercy Theatre, but she’d earned it, whether or not she owned it.
