Tennessee May Soon Criminalize Drug-Addicted Pregnant Moms

todays lady news
  • Tennessee’s state legislature has approved a bill that would make it possible to charge pregnant women for assault if they use narcotics during their pregnancy. Critics of the bill rightfully point out that it’s a sneaky way to give more rights to fetuses, thus easing the way to criminalizing abortion. Women’s rights groups and the ACLU are asking Governor Bill Haslam to veto the bill. [TennesseanCosmopolitan]

Amanda Bynes’s Mom: No Mental Illness, Blame It All On Marijuana!

  • Amanda Bynes’s mother issued a statement to US Weekly denying that her daughter suffers from mental illness and instead, blames all of Amanda’s problems on pot: “Amanda has no mental illness whatsoever. She has never been diagnosed as schizophrenic or bipolar. She is very sorry for all the hurtful tweets, statements and actions that occurred while she was under the influence of marijuana.” The family lawyer also told US Weekly that Bynes is on “zero medication.” I don’t know what the real story is, obviously, but “just pot” doesn’t make people attempt to start fires, throw bongs out of windows, and run around town in crazy wigs while tweeting nonsense. Whatever Amanda’s issue is, I hope it is being treated somehow. [US Weekly] Keep reading »

7 Of The Worst Choices Ever Made While High

Someone once told me drugs are bad. I think it was a man dressed like a dog, or a cartoon rabbit or something. I’ve taken that lesson to heart and only do molly after promising this will be the last time. Every time.

While we’ve all heard hilarious tales of bath salts zombies and heroin-addled buggerists, those are lame and predictable and somewhat depressing drug hijinks. Don’t people do hilariously misguided things when they’re high anymore? Aren’t there any stories that could serve as awesome subplots in a carefree ’80s sex comedy? Yes!

Colorado Girl Scouts Put The Kibosh On Selling Cookies Outside Of Pot Shops

Last week, clever California Girl Scout made bank after she set up shop outside of a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco. The enterprising 13-year-old sold 117 boxes in two hours, both to neighbors and customers of the cannabis club. Tragically, Girl Scouts in Colorado won’t have a similar circumstance to exploit — even though their state recently legalized marijuana — because they want kiddies to stay away from the pot clubs. In a statement on their Facebook page, the Girl Scouts of Colorado warned scouts that cookie sales are not permitted outside “adult establishments,” which includes pot dispensaries. Strip clubs, bars, liquor stores and casinos as also verboten. “We recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we don’t feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado,” they wrote. [I wonder if they know that there is apparently a strain of marijuana named after their delectable treats? -- Amelia] Keep reading »
