Who Is the Biggest Celebrity Pothead?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, November, 29th 2010 by THCFinder

This probably won't come as a huge shock, but legendary country singer Willie Nelson was arrested and charged with marijuana possession on Friday after six ounces of pot was found aboard his tour bus in Texas, a U.S. Border Patrol spokesman told the Associated Press.

 

On Friday morning, an officer smelled pot when Nelson's tour bus pulled into a Sierra Blanca checkpoint at 9 a.m. 

 

A suspiciously early hour for such an odor to be eminating from a vehicle.

Marijuana was discovered during a search of the bus, patrol spokesman Bill Brooks told the AP.

 

Sheriff Arvin West told the El Paso Times that Nelson said that the marijuana was his. 

The singer was held briefly on a $2,500 bond before being released.

 

Nelson, 77, has made no secret of his love of ganja. The outspoken advocate for the legalization of marijuana was busted at a traffic stop in 2006 for one-and-a-half pounds of pot and a bag of mushrooms.

He entered a guilty plea and was fined $1,024 and placed on probation for six months.

But Nelson is far from the only celebrity to get caught green-handed. 

 

From Matthew McConaughey to Woody Harrelson, who do you think is the biggest celebrity pothead?

Montel Williams to Illinois: Legalize Medical Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, November, 29th 2010 by THCFinder

Former talk show host, U.S. Navy officer, and multiple sclerosis patient Montel Williams will meet with members of the Illinois House of Representatives tomorrow to urge them to vote in favor of SB 1381, a bill that would make Illinois the 16th state in the nation to allow chronically ill patients to use marijuana with the recommendation of their doctor.

The Senate passed the bill – which would create one of the tightest regulated medical marijuana programsin the country – last year.

Mr. Williams suffers from multiple sclerosis, and uses medical marijuana to help ease the effects of his condition. “Illinois lawmakers should act without delay to make marijuana legally available for medical use,” Williams said. “Every day that they delay is another one of needless suffering for patients like me all across the state. Fifteen other states have already passed medical marijuana laws, and Illinois’s lawmakers now have an opportunity to ensure that those suffering in their state will be treated with the same compassionate care.”

Sixty-eight percent of Illinois voters favor allowing seriously and terminally ill patients to use and grow marijuana for medical purposes if their doctor recommends it, according to a 2008 Mason-Dixon poll. On Jan. 3, Gov. Quinn told the Associated Press, “People who are seriously ill deserve access to all medical treatments that will help them fight their illness and recover.”

Since 1996, 15 states and Washington, D.C., have passed medical marijuana laws, and more than a dozen others considered such laws in 2010. The most recent was Arizona, where voters approved a medical marijuana law earlier this month.

Under SB 1381, qualified patients could obtain medical marijuana from state-licensed organizations regulated by the state health department, which would also issue medical marijuana ID cards to patients who receive a recommendation from their doctor.

Public use of marijuana and driving under the influence would be prohibited. In Illinois, the bill is supported by the Illinois Nurses Association, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Protestants for the Common Good, the Jewish Political Alliance of Illinois, and Illinois public health advocate and physician to the governor, Dr. Quentin Young. Nationally, the American Nurses Association, American Public Health Association, American Academy of HIV Medicine, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and many other esteemed health organizations have endorsed the medical efficacy of marijuana.

Willie Nelson arrested for marijuana possession

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 27th 2010 by THCFinder

Oops, he did it again.

Country music legend Willie Nelson was arrested for possession of marijuana Friday after a U.S. Border Patrol official smelled a suspicious odor on his tour bus during a routine stop.

Traveling from California to his ranch near Austin, Nelson's bus was pulled over at a checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, around 85 miles west of El Paso, when the officer found six ounces of pot. Nelson said it was his, according to reports.

(Maybe he thought he was still in California, where marijuana for medical purposes is legal.)

The 77-year-old singer was detained briefly along with three others. He was released after paying a $2,500 bond.

Hudspeth County Sheriff Arvin West told the El Paso Times that Nelson could get 180 days in county jail (this is Texas, after all). 

 "If he does, I'm going to make him cook and clean. He can wear the stripy uniforms just like the other ones do," West said.

Hugh Hefner Talks Monogamy, Miley Cyrus and Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, November, 23rd 2010 by THCFinder

In light of the countless celebrity cheating and sex scandals of 2010, Playboy’s legendary founder Hugh Hefner says it all boils down to his original theory that human beings are not meant to be monogamous.

 

 

“I think that monogamy is something that has been invented along the way to take care of children,” he explained.

 

Speaking of children, Disney darling turned racy pop star Miley Cyrus enters adulthood as she celebrates her 18th birthday Tuesday, and we couldn’t help but ask if any offers were on the table for her to make her “adult” status a little more official with an appearance in the men’s magazine…

 

“The simple answer is she is the one that you and all the other readers would like to see,” Hef said coyly. “That person changes every month and year, it depends on who the hot celebrity of the month is.”

 

The 84-year-old is reportedly still vying to spend $123 million to buy back the outstanding shares in his beloved Playboy Enterprises Inc., which was founded to manage the Playboy magazine empire, and even though rival publication Penthouse is willing to dish out even more money, Hef controls 70 percent of the voting thus it’s likely the enterprise he built in 1983 will remain in his hands

 

And he certainly has plans to build the “Playboy” brand far behind its glossy pages, and bounce the bunnies all over the world.

 

The market for magazines and books and newspapers is changing and everything is becoming electronic so we’re shifting the focus,” Hef added. “The magazine remains the heart and soul of the company, but increasingly the end of it will be driven by the casinos and Playboy products around the world. The brand itself, despite all the economic problems, the brand itself is hotter than ever.”

 

But our interview with the icon wasn’t all about business, pop culture and relationship advice. He also shared his thoughts on California voters striking down bids to legalize marijuana.

 

I don’t think there’s any question that marijuana should be legalized because to not legalize it, we’re paying the same price we paid for prohibition,” he told Pop Tarts last Wednesday, before receiving the Award of Honor & First Amendment Awardat the PEN Center USA's 20th Annual Literary Awards Festival in Los Angeles. “In other words, it is a medical concern and it should be handled that way.
