Totally Boss News Anchor Quits Her Job On The Air To Pursue Pot Legalization

"F**k It, I Quit"

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). Greene told Alaska Dispatch that she created such a scene to draw attention to legalizing pot. Well, she definitely did that much. [Gawker]

One of the more ridiculous conversations I’ve had in my life — and I’ve had many — was about smoking pot. One of my friends at work told me he’d been smoking and driving and got pulled over for a broken tail light and got paranoid, and I guess I was supposed to laugh, but it sounded really concerning to me. I told him I was completely sober and to that point had not smoked pot. He told me — this is the really ridiculous part — that I needed to smoke pot, because it’s just an irreplaceable life experience.

I have now smoked pot. It was not an irreplaceable life experience. It was as boring for me as being sober around people who are smoking pot, which is to say very, very, very boring. Keep reading »

7 Adventures I Had As The World’s Biggest Pot Smuggler

7 Adventures I Had As The World's Biggest Pot Smuggler

Nowadays, America grows her own weed, and The Man eases up more and more on the pot industry every year. Last week we got the lowdown on the strange and sometimes dangerous world of legal marijuana in 2014, but if you want to know how we got here, you need to talk to somebody from back in the day. In the 1970s, there were no dispensaries in California, much less legal recreational shops. There was, however, Brian O’Dea and his merry band of pot smugglers.

We talked with Brian to find out just how he rose to become one of the continent’s leading drug importers, and how it all went cock-bendingly wrong in the end. Here’s what he had to say. Read more on Cracked…

6 Surprising Realities Of The Legal Weed Industry

6 Surprising Realities Of The Legal Weed Industry

Pot is more popular and more legal than it’s ever been. Well, at least since lawmakers first started using it as an excuse to arrest Mexicans. It’s been outright legalized in Washington, Colorado, and the city of Portland, Maine. Meanwhile, legions of legal medical growers across California and 22 other states have helped turn weed into America’s biggest cash crop. Cracked wanted the lowdown on getting high the respectable way, so we sent a “reporter” up to America’s Drug Basket: Northern California. He (or she) “researched” several legal grow operations and spoke with people at every level of the industry. The Nacho per diem alone nearly broke our budget, so we sure hope this is good.

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 »
