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 »

Colorado Teen Jumps To His Death After Eating Marijuana Cookie

Colorado Teen Jumps To His Death After Eating Marijuana Cookie

For the first time since Colorado legalized weed for recreational use, a coroner has listed “marijuana intoxication” as a contributor to a death. Wyoming student Levy Thamba was in Denver on spring break with three friends when he jumped to his death from a Holiday Inn balcony after eating a marijuana cookie, reports the Denver Post. His friends told investigators he “exhibited hostile behavior” after eating the cookie, and though initial attempts to calm him down seemed to work, he ended up leaping from the balcony, USA Today reports. Read more on Newser…

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 »

Colorado Replaces “420″ Mile Marker With “419.99″ To Stop Stoner Thefts

Colorado Replaces "420" Mile Marker With "419.99" To Stop Stoner Thefts

And people say stoners are lazy. After marijuana fans in Colorado — which recently legalized the drug — repeatedly kept stealing the 420 mile marker on Interstate 70, the Department of Transportation gave up and put up a 419.99 marker instead. “420,” of course,” is a number associated with pot-smoking culture, and Colorado is one of the few states with a highway long enough to need a 420 marker, so it’s not like there’s tons of these bad boys to rip off. ”Obviously people steal these signs,” said CDOT spokesperson Amy Ford. “In the past, if a sign was stolen too much, we wouldn’t replace it. This is sort of an innovative way for us to keep the sign there.” [Denver Post]

Miley Cyrus Lights Joint On Stage After Winning Best Video At The MTV EMAs

Miley Cyrus Lights Joint On Stage After Winning Best Video At The MTV EMAs
Look At Me! I'm Smoking Marijuana!

Last night, MTV held their Euro version of the VMAs, called the EMAs — the purpose of which I don’t understand, as the same damn people win — in Amsterdam. After Miley Cyrus won the award for Best Video, for the Terry Richardson-directed “Wrecking Ball,” she celebrated by lighting a joint on stage. Because it’s Amsterdam! And Miley is in her “Look at meeeeee! I’m so craaaaazy and edddddgyyyyy and I smoke WEEEEEED” phase of life, which I also went through around the same age so I can’t hate too much. Anyway, unless Miley is smoking 15 joints a day like Lady Gaga, I am not impressed.

Lady Gaga Kicked Her 15-Joints-Per-Day Marijuana Habit With Marina Abramovic’s Help

Lady Gaga Kicked Her 15-Joints-Per-Day Marijuana Habit With Marina Abramovic's Help
“I was smoking 15 joints a day. No tobacco. A day."

“I was smoking 15 joints a day. No tobacco. A day. It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip. I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself and then sleeping it off and then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was. … It wasn’t until I was with Marina and she said, ‘Okay you’re coming to my house, no television, no computer, no marijuana, no nothing, no food. For three days, art only. You eat only art. I cold-turkeyed. For weeks and weeks, I didn’t smoke at all.”

Perhaps kicked is the wrong word. Lady Gaga explained in a new interview with Attitude how she was able to significantly decrease her pot use after she developed a MAJOR habit following an injury. (She still smokes “for fun.”) What an interesting and unique approach! Of course neither Lady Gaga nor Marina Abramovic would follow the usual 12 Steps. Eating art is so much more expressive. By “eating” I assume Gaga means she and Marina made art, became one with it, so to speak, rather than actually ingesting paint and canvas and whatever else. Check out the video above for the full scoop on Lady Gaga and Marina Abramovic’s guide to breaking up with Mary Jane. [Celebuzz]
