It was just another day at high school in Arnold, Maryland when one little pot brownie changed the game. The story goes like this: a student was eating his beloved brownie in class, sharing with his girlfriend (as you do) who sat nearby, when their teacher approached and asked for a bite of the brownie.
Now, before I continue with this story, I want it to be known that I have no idea what kind of teacher would actually accept a brownie from a student mid-class, let alone ASK FOR IT. Hello, inappropriate. Also, germs. Moving on… Keep reading »

Charlo Greene of Alaskan local news station KTVA interrupted her own news report about the Alaska Cannabis Club to reveal that she was the owner of the club, and that she was quitting to focus on pushing for pot legalization — in the most dramatic way possible. There’s nothing like a “fuck it, I quit” live on the air to get jaws dropping (and inspire admiration in other worker bees who’ve dreamed of quitting in an equally classy manner).
