Montel Williams is not only becoming an advocate of medical marijuana, he’s about to sell it.
Claiming prescription drugs almost shut down his kidneys, Williams was given the suggestion by a doctor to try some cannabis sativa and it worked for him.
“We’ve been caught up in culture surrounding medical marijuana that’s 20 years old,” Williams said. “While adhering to every single state law, we want to provide safe access for patients and really medicalize this. Patients should be put first.”
The Abatin Wellness Cooperative facility is heavily monitored by cameras, no weed can be consumed on the property and the “medicine” isn’t even visible to the public. He wants the center to be somewhere that your parents would feel comfortable going to for help.
Williams said he wants to change the stigma surrounding doctor-prescribed pot use.
“It’s absurd. I can go get morphine pumped into my system and nobody’s got a problem,” he said. “But all of a sudden they’re really worried if I smoked a joint.”
According to the news report:
Cornell Hood II just couldn’t stay out of trouble.
Hood moved from eastern New Orleans to the Slidell area after he admitted to separate charges of distribution of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana on Dec. 18, 2009, in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court. He received a suspended five-year prison sentence and five years’ of probation for each — which was precisely the same penalty he got in that court after pleading guilty to possessing and intending to distribute marijuana on Feb. 22, 2005.
When Hood switched homes, he also requested a new probation officer based in St. Tammany. Authorities granted the wish, and the officer, Dustin Munlin, drove to Hood’s place for a routine visit on Sept. 27, 2010. Munlin found nearly two pounds of pot throughout the house, according to court records. He alerted Sheriff’s Office deputies. Prosecutors later charged him with one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
At his trail which lasted one day Cornell was charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana which usually results in less than 15 year sentence but in New Orleans people are subject to life imprisonment after being convicted three or more times of a crime that carries a sentence exceeding 10 years.
Wow, this seems a bit severe for weed.. you getting life for weed man..SMDH!
A British man that journeyed to the most opulent city in the world has found himself up a creek without a paddle, proverbially speaking of course.
Keith Brown was stopped at Dubai’s largest airport only to be detained after a search uncovered a speck of marijuana on his shoe.
Weighing a less than whopping 0.003 grams, the particle was so smalls that it was not detectable with the human eye, requiring microscopic vision tools to be utilized for confirmation of the substance.
After sitting in a local prison for four months, Brown was ordered to serve four years in an United Arab Emirates jail.
The UAE has strict Zero Tolerance policies for those visiting its lands, a fact that many travelers are unaware of.
An ignorant and equally as unlucky traveler was given a fate resembling the one given to Brown after a search by local officials yielded three poppy seeds from a sandwich in which he had previously devoured before entering the predominately Islamic nation.
New York police arrested Anthony Brioridy for drug dealing this week and he now faces 22 counts of it. According to police, he had lots of narcotics for sale. You could buy cocaine, Percocet, Xanax, oxycodone, ecstasy and ketamine, and of course, Liquid Marijuana. That’s right, liquid marijuana!
His alleged specialty, however, was a brownish-green “homemade remedy” that supposedly launched users on an hallucinogenic eight-hour high — at a price of $120 for a 15-to-20-ounce shot.
Undercover cops trailed Brioridy for a number of months as he allegedly peddled drugs from his car, before invited them to his home on 76th Street in Bensonhurst.
There, he allegedly brewed the distilled resins of pot fermented with 180-proof grain alcohol.
The concoction was supposed to be mixed with juice or soda.
Even the cops were surprised by this.
“It has not been seen around here before,” Capt. Gerard Dowling of Manhattan South narcotics stated.
