Rihanna’s no stranger to racy pictures. However, they’ve become even more outlandish lately. Aside from an "accidental" nip-slip pic a few days ago, RiRi has recently posted pics of her insane time a Coachella last weekend. The Instagram photos included her mounted atop her bodyguard's shoulders, and rolling what appears to be a joint off his bald head. Say what?! Another pic featured her partying with Snoop Dogg and Warren G with "thug life" written on her stomach. Both sets of pictures appeared to contain a certain smokeable substance. She deleted the post shortly after, but not before thousands of her followers commented on what they assumed the substance was. Under the photo she posted the quote, "Memories don't live like people do #coachella.”
The plane wasn’t the only thing coming down from being high when comedian Jim Belushi landed at Martha’s Vineyard last Friday. The television star was forced to give up a marijuana joint upon landing after authorities found a small amount of weed in Jimbo’s shirt pocket. “You can’t use that card here pal,” was what the actor was told by TSA officials when he presented his Californian Medical Marijuana Card.
Although the brother of the late John Belushi was sporting the card, no doubt for his infamous gout, the TSA officials were having none of it. Since when was something being “According To Jim” not enough? Obviously the TSA officials were not huge fans of the sitcom. But who doesn’t love a lazy ass yet lovable dad? We bet Cheryl wouldn’t mind Jim having a blaze as he looks after the kids; or him and Andy slipping out to the garage for a session and some air guitar. But sadly there was no canned laughter or a hearty “Oh Jim!” when the West Tisbury police came sirens blaring. Not even a “But I was in K-9 I, II and III” couldn't save Jim’s beloved high. Lucky for the 58 year old, weed possession in Massachusetts is decriminalized and he was simply forced to empty his pockets and give up the goods.
Jim and his publicity team are yet to release a joint statement about the incident.
"We're not the Democratic Party. We're not the Republican Party. We're the After Party." These words straight from Miami Beach mayoral candidate Steve Berke's mouth are pretty much his mantra. Yes, he is a stand-up comedian that uses profanity and makes music parody videos that he posts on YouTube, but insists that his intent to seek public office is not a joke.
Berke says the inspiration to run for mayor came from making fun of politicians as part of his stand-up routines.
His website is far removed from your typical politician's because, well, he isn't one. With a section of his website devoted entirely to models that might bring you an absentee ballot form to his Frat-tastic campaign ads to the whack-a-mayor game where players try to knock the incumbent mayor Bower on the head, this dude is definitely trying something different. He even proudly displays his "Should Be Legalized" music video that he created over a year ago, so he's definitely got the stoner vote, if stoners actually vote, that is.
420 is here and the time has come to spark up and celebrate. We have compiled a list of our favorite songs dedicated to this wonderful holiday that would be the perfect accompaniment as you burn one down in honor of everyone’s most beloved herb. If you’re not a smoker don’t worry, these songs are good anytime.
Here’s our list… in no particular order
1. Rainy Day Woman # 12 & 35 (Bob Dylan, 1966)
“But I would not feel so all alone. Everybody must get stoned” The repetition of this statement caused many American radio stations to ban the song.
This recently unearthed home video of the famed singer/actress was filmed over 50 years ago.
The video shows Monroe smoking a joint rolled herself, then cuts to another video on the same couch where she is passed a joint from a woman sitting with her while another smiles gleefully in the foreground. The video ends with solo Monroe laughing silently at the camera like only someone who has been smoking the reefer would do.
It obviously can’t be proven whether or not it is actually marijuana in the home film, but does it really matter? All I see is somebody laughing with her friends in the 60s. The only proof you need is to look at those giggly girls, and wasn’t Monroe known for doing whatever she wanted? Further evidence, who passes cigarettes around at a party? Answer: no one.
New York has been viewed as a city with an undercurrent of mafia-run drug empires. Granted, the mob psyche is partially an invention of Hollywood, but Don Corleone is merely the caricature of a vein that is quite real in our society.
Petty drug users in the city live in a world of complacency, as police forces have too much on their plates to concern themselves with the myriad messenger services delivering drugs all over the city. Yeah, that out-of-place kid longboarding up towards Murray Hill with a nondescript satchel, he’s not a resident.
Now, in an unprecedented move in the post-Reagan/”War on Drugs” era, President Obama (an admitted past pot user) has officially sent out the order to take a softer lean on medical marijuana distributors and users. The memo, released today, does not in any way condone drug traffickers, and the principle stance laid out is to spend more time and resources in battling the illegal distributors and drug gangs operating fronts and money laundering pits.
According to TMZ, Joseph Simmons Jr., or JoJo, got caught with weed in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Law enforcement says they caught him buying the weed and rolling it up. When they swooped in for the arrest, he tried to reverse, almost hitting a police car. I wonder if he was prepared to take them on a high speed chase.
He was charged with resisting arrest, attempted reckless endangerment, and criminal use of drug paraphernalia. Of course he’ll beat every charge with the help of high powered attorneys, plus he was only smoking bud. Not the end of the world. If anything, the arrest might help his hip-hop image, which still is in strong need of solidification.
