Charlize Theron Reveals She Enjoys Smoking Weed

The 42-year-old actress didn’t experiment with “anything” until later in life, but the psychoactive drug was always something she enjoyed more than drinking alcohol.

She said: “I was a wake-and-baker for most of my life.

“I was older [when I first tried it]. I didn’t really mess around with anything until I was much older. But I really appreciated marijuana way more than alcohol or anything else.”

However, the ‘Gringo’ actress stopped using the drug in her early thirties when she realized it had made her “boring”.

She added in an interview with E! News: “My chemistry was really good with it when I was younger and then it just changed one day.

“Like, in my early thirties I just became boring on it and I would just stand in front of my fridge, so that’s no good.

“It totally changed, so I stopped.”

However, the ‘Atomic Blonde’ actress – who has son Jackson, six, and two-year-old daughter August – isn’t opposed to trying marijuana again to help her sleep.

Pot Sector Regains Its Mojo After Altria's $1.8 Billion Deal

By Aoyon Ashraf,


Here’s one way to get investors back into the battered marijuana sector -- throw $1.8 billion into it.

Cannabis stocks climbed Friday morning after Altria Group Inc., the maker of Marlboro cigarettes for the U.S. market, agreed to buy a minority stake in Cronos Group Inc, the fourth-largest Canadian cannabis producer by market valuation. The gains bring some relief to cannabis investors, who, as of Thursday’s close, had been poised for their worst weekly loss in six weeks after a short-seller report targeted Aphria Inc., raising questions about broader governance and financial disclosure in the adolescent industry.
“An investment of this magnitude provides overall legitimacy to the industry as a whole and should represent a positive catalyst for the sector, with the news likely to drive valuations higher (particularly considering the sector’s recent pullback),” Canaccord Genuity analyst Matt Bottomley wrote in a note.
The stocks have been trend…

Cannabis Cash From High-Less Hemp Beckons to Ailing U.S. Farmers

By Jack Kaskey,


Where tobacco once flourished on Gator Williams’ North Carolina farm, he now plants 1,380 acres of cannabis.

Williams isn’t growing marijuana but hemp, a kind of cannabis plant that offers the medicinal benefits of pot without the high. At his Lazy Gator’s Hemp Farm in Kinston, he’s breeding seed lines, experimenting with cultivation techniques and making products such as skin creams and gummy candies.
Like a growing number of struggling U.S. farmers, Williams is betting on hemp as an entirely new cash crop. Lumped in with its intoxicating cousin for decades under federal laws restricting controlled substances, Congress is on the verge of fully legalizing hemp under a new farm-bill agreement struck Thursday.
“We want the tobacco belt to become the hemp belt,’’ Williams said. After nearly losing his farm when he couldn’t squeeze enough profit from his row crops, he sees limitless potential in cannabis.

“We use everything from the roots all the wa…

Israel becomes third country to allow exports of medical marijuana

Israel has given final approval to a law permitting the export of medical marijuana, a move the government expects will catapult investment in local industry and agriculture.

The Cabinet’s decision Sunday came a month after the Israeli parliament unanimously approved the decision, making Israel the third country in the world, after the Netherlands and Canada, to allow export of medical cannabis products.

Israel is home to dozens of companies active in the medical marijuana industry, and approved companies will be able to export to countries where it is legal.

The law has been in the works for years, but had long been stymied by concerns from security agencies over marijuana leaking to the black market. Lawmakers eventually compromised to grant Israeli police oversight of the industry.

Man Faces Charges in What May Be the First Medical Cannabis Prosecution Case in Utah

KSTU - Salt Lake City


This is what happens when you let big pharma write all the laws now this man will become a criminal all because of weed, think of that for a second? Is this what we want in this country?

In Utah, the law states if you're seizure free for 3 months, you can drive. So at 16 months he was fine, to those who are commenting about him not being able to drive due to seizures.

Utah wasting time on prosecuting a guy for having a seizure while driving. MJ did not cause it. If anything, the MJ likely prevented more frequent seizures.

In Utah we have state run liquor stores and were a very supposedly conservative state what's that tell you.

Former MPD officers sentenced to prison after trying to sneak heroin into Memphis

Two former Memphis police officers have been sentenced to federal prison for trying to sneak heroin into Memphis. 

Former MPD officers Terrion Bryson, 26, and Kevin Coleman were first busted during an elaborate undercover sting in April of 2018.

In February 2018, the department’s organized crime unit received information that Bryson and Coleman were stealing money and drugs during traffic stops, according to police documents.

On April 5, Bryson began contacting an undercover officer about protecting a shipment of drugs that would be brought into Memphis.

Less than a week later, the officers told the undercover officer they wanted $10,000 to “offer security for the shipment of narcotics.” The pair then agreed to protect 2.5 kilograms of heroin, the documents stated.

During the negations, Coleman, while on duty, allegedly threatened physical harm to the undercover officer’s family if “the arrangement was a …

Ocasio-Cortez Slams The 'Racial Injustice' Of The Cannabis Business As White Men Profit

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) earned praise from “drug justice” advocates after criticizing a growing marijuana legalization and business model that is paving the way for white male investors to reap major profits after minorities spent decades in prisons for selling pot.
She made her comments during a House Financial Services subcommittee hearing this week on banking services for the burgeoning cannabis industry as more states legalize the sale and use of marijuana.

She suggested the growing industry was “compounding the racial wealth gap”  by allowing wealthy white-dominated companies to gain a quick advantage in the industry. She complained that communities most affected by drug incarcerations are the “last in the door” when it comes to profiting now from legalized cannabis.

The nonprofit Drug Policy Alliance praised her position. “We must legalize marijuana in a way that recognizes and repairs the disastrous, disproportionate harms of the…
