Fast Food Workers Lose Their Jobs After Marijuana Advocate Offers to Pay With Weed

Category: Odd | Posted on Fri, May, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

Two fast food workers in Washington have been fired after a marijuana advocate and another individual caught them on video accepting weed as payment for food.

Jonah Tacoma was ordering through the drive-thru at Frugals in Tacoma, Washington, last month when he offered to give the employees hits of marijuana in exchange for free meals.

“She said, ‘Yeah, sure.’ We started filming when we pulled up,” Tacoma told KOMO-TV.

The two employees who were caught just asked that Tacoma and his friend not publish the video for at least a week, KOMO-TV reported. So they waited a month and put it on YouTube.

“Who’s first?” Tacoma is heard asking workers as he pulls up to the window. Several employees didn’t want to have anything to with it, but two others were quick to take the bait.

It wasn’t long after the video went public that the manager at the store was notified of the incident and terminated both employees. Both had worked there since 2012.

The marijuana industry’s newest customers are sick and elderly dogs

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, April, 13th 2015 by THCFinder

A day before a scheduled vet appointment to euthanize her dog, Wendy Mansfield decided to try one last resort to alleviate the chronic pain of her 15-year-old labrador mix: cookies from a marijuana dispensary made specifically for ailing dogs.

Kali, a mild-mannered 80-pound rescue, was never much of a complainer. But she often licked her paws—an obvious sign of pain, according to her vet—which was typically accompanied by bouts of coughing because of the shedding fur that got in her throat. One treat and 20 minutes later, the licking suddenly stopped.

Seeing this, Mansfield, who lives in Fort Bragg, California, gave her dog a second cookie, and then a third. Kali, who had been listless and depressed, got up to drink some water and walked outside—something she hadn’t been able to do recently without groaning or obvious signs of pain.

Mansfieldthen called the vet to cancel her appointment. That was three weeks ago. “Never in my wildest dreams would I have anticipated this,” she tells Quartz. “It brought my dog back.”

With marijuana flourishing into big business in the US, a new segment of the market catering toward aging and ailing pets has been growing under the radar. The legal weed market raked in $2.7 billion in revenue in 2014, and one estimate by the ArcView Group, a network that connects investors with cannabis startups, projects the industry to top$10 billion in sales by 2018.

The pet-pot market is treading on new territory, however. The legal gray area is posing challenges for companies to market and distribute cannabis-derived products for animals. There’s also insufficient scientific backing and industry guidelines. Still, that’s not deterring desperate pet owners, like Mansfield, or keeping investors from getting on board.

Weed stashed in peanut butter sent to drug store

Category: Odd | Posted on Sun, April, 5th 2015 by THCFinder

A kosher food grocer found himself in a sticky situation when 10 bags of weed — stashed inside vacuum-sealed bags of peanut butter — showed up at his Brooklyn shop in the mail, police sources said.

The owner Kahan’s Superette told cops whoever mailed the mystery package must have made a mistake — because he doesn’t sell those kind of treats, the sources said.

“It wasn’t anything that they asked for,” a police source said.

The bizarre package arrived at the food market on Kingston Avenue near Union Street in Crown Heights at 4 p.m. on Monday, the police sources said.

“Wrong delivery address results in the seizure of 10 large bags of marijuana wrapped in peanut butter,” the 71st Precinct tweeted, along with a photo of the gooey mess on Monday.

The marijuana, which was delivered by the USPS, was wrapped in plastic bags then covered in peanut butter.

“I have no idea where it came from. It was just dropped off,” a worker at the shop told The Post.

It’s unclear how much weed was in the packages. Cops declined comment on where the packages had been mailed from.

The grocery store sells such items as Marvid kosher chicken, bagels and fresh salmon, according to its Facebook page.

Grocery Store Accidentally Receives a Large Shipment of Pot

Category: Odd | Posted on Fri, April, 3rd 2015 by THCFinder

When Brooklyn neighborhood website CrownHeights.info reported on April 1 that a kosher grocery store in the Jewish enclave had received in the mail 10 bags of cannabis hidden in vacuum-sealed plastic containers of peanut butter—well, we thought it was an April Fool joke.

But the website's source was the previous day's New York Post, and it actually looks pretty legit.

The grocery, Kahan's Superette on Kingston Ave., apparently reported the find to the police.

"Wrong delivery address results in the seizure of 10 large bags of marijuana wrapped in peanut butter," the 71st Precinct tweeted, along with a photo of the gooey mess.

"I have no idea where it came from. It was just dropped off," a worker at the store told the Post.

The store sells such fare as kosher chicken, bagels, cream cheese and fresh salmon, according to itsFacebook page. Nobody seems to have asked if Kahan’s had ordered a shipment of peanut butter.

CrownHeights.info reported that a similar incident occurred at a different Kingston Ave. shop—Crown Kosher Meat—almost exactly two years ago, when the owner received a Fed Ex delivery of over 25 pounds of "distribution grade marijuana."

Crown Heights is a neighborhood where orthodox Jews and Afro-Caribbeans co-exist—for the most part peacefully, though the neighborhood was the site of violent riots in 1991. The cops aren't treating the owners of Kahan's Superette as suspects, but we can't help but wonder if they would have the same attitude if the pot had arrived at a Black-owned business.

In any case, a cannabis-peanut butter connection is a much more positive vibe than the "Pizza Connection" that brought massive amounts of heroin into New York City back in the '80s.

'Poisoned pot' Easter cakes: Norwegian students arrested for flooding school with marijuana

Category: Odd | Posted on Tue, March, 31st 2015 by THCFinder

Two Norwegian teenagers have been arrested for bringing Easter cakes with massive doses of marijuana inside to school. Three teachers suffered from food poisoning and sought medical help.

The “joke” was revealed when several teachers and other employees of Lier Upper Secondary School experienced symptoms of a mysterious illness and found themselves having difficulty remaining on their feet, local media reported.

“They felt ill. They were dizzy and felt totally out of it. They were basically bedridden,” head of the local police Arne Lauvålien told Norwegian state broadcaster NRK on Thursday.

Nobody suspected the bakers until three teachers were taken to the hospital where blood tests revealed they were sickened by large doses of cannabis. At that point, suspicion fell on the Easter cakes.

“When we began to unravel it, it became clear quite rapidly which of the cakes it had been. The school knew who had baked the special cake, so we were on the trail of the cake bakers relatively early,” The Local quoted Lauvålien as saying.

The students who brought the cake to school to share with their class were arrested the next day after the incident and charged with possession of marijuana. Both teens admitted to filling the cakes with cannabis.

Lauvålien’s colleague Finn Håvard Aas told VG newspaper that they may face even more serious charges of poisoning.

Police questioned the students to find out where they had got the marijuana and what inspired them to drug their teachers and classmates.

“What we have here is someone who has not thought about the consequences,” Lauvålien said. “The teachers have actually been poisoned.”

Police say pizzeria was front for marijuana operation

Category: Odd | Posted on Mon, March, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Police say a St. Paul pizzeria and ice cream parlor turned out to be a front for a marijuana trafficking business.

 

The investigation began last summer after a concerned citizen reported that Papa Dimitri's Classic Pizza and Ice Cream was rarely open and didn't seem to do much actual business. According to the criminal complaint, the employees there complained about a lack of heat, even though it had a pizza oven, and typically ate at nearby burger restaurant instead of at the pizzeria.

 

On Friday, Ramsey County authorities charged the owner, 32-year-old Ryan Dimitri Brooks Sr., his 61-year-old mother, his 82-year-old grandmother and his 24-year-old girlfriend with drug and firearms offenses.

 

Ryan Brooks declined to speak with police when he was arrested. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
