NFL commissioner open to medical cannabis for players?

What do the Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, San Diego Chargers, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, New England Patriots, Washington Redskins and, of course, the Denver Broncos all have in common? They are NFL teams based in states (and a district) where medical marijuana is legal. Currently, NFL policy doesn’t allow players on those teams to use the herb to help their ailments, though. But could that be changing? When asked about medical pot use for athletes this week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodel told ESPN that he isn’t going to write off cannabis as a therapy but…

14 Things To Do With Dr. Bronner’s Soaps

If you’ve been to an organic grocery store, you’ve seen a shelf full of Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Pure Castile Soap. Easily recognizable by the tiny-print labels on every bottle, the soap comes in eight different scents and claims to have over 18 uses, including shampoo, toothpaste, body wash, deodorant, household cleaner, and more. But does it actually do all those things? A little history first: The organic and fair trade soaps were originally invented by a third-generation soap maker named Emanuel Bronner, who was famous for his personal philosophy that he called the “Moral ABC of All-One-God-Faith!” Bronner was eccentric,…

Bob Dylan Denied Highest Honor Because of Pot…Until Now!

I feel comfortable calling Bob Dylan one of the most influential musicians and songwriters…ever. And apparently while the French government agrees, for years they have been denying Dylan an honor he deserves and has deserved for many years.  Members of the French government — namely Grand Chancellor of the Legion Jean-Louis Georgelin — have unjustly blocked the singer-songwriter from the Legion d’Honneur for his outspoken use of pot, but it seems Dylan has met someone willing to champion his cause in France’s Minister of Culture, Aurelie Filippetti. Established by Napolean on May 19th, 1802, the Legion d’Honneur is the highest decoration in France for those who have served the “Fatherland” in some way. Given…

NorCal Outdoor Marijuana Harvest Arrives

It’s harvest season in the Bay Area, and a glut of outdoor-grown cannabis is hitting the market. The 2013 crop is bigger, and better, but also more conflict-ridden, experts report. More people planted personal gardens, more commercial greenhouses are protecting crops, and the outdoor season is running longer due to the massive adoption of light-deprivation techniques. But the outcry over the environmental harms of both legal and illegal growing has reached a fever-pitch, and organic/sustainable weed continues to make in-roads in the market thanks to increased demand, coupled with third-party verification systems like Clean Green. Deals will abound in the…

Following up on his last album influenced by reggae and dancehall, Snoop is dropping his moniker “Snoop Lion” in favor of his latest incarnation, Snoopzilla — an homage to bassist and funk hero Bootsy Collins, who used to call himself Bootzilla. “We’re the babies of the Mothership,” says Snoop. “I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dam-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I…

Ricky Williams Compares Weed to “Spinach for Popeye”

Contrary to most critics who might say that marijuana use derailed Ricky Williams from reaching his full potential, the former NFL star believes quite the opposite. In a recent interview with Campus Insiders, Williams spoke about his new role as a running backs coach at the University of the Incarnate Word, and was asked what he tells his students about his infamous marijuana use, which the interviewer insinuated as an “Achilles heel” to Williams’ career. “I don’t agree that it was an Achilles heel. I kind of think it was more like spinach for Popeye,” Williams said. Last month, former…

Oakland A’s Fan Wears Custom Jersey Honoring Classic Weed Song

Although the scrappy Oakland A’s failed to advance in last night’s ALDS Game 5, the fans of Oakland succeed in being super cool. Several news sources such as USA Today and Bleacher Report just had to report on a tweet from the deciding game 5 picturing a fan’s custom A’s jersey sporting the number “5″ and the name “On It” — a reference to the classic Bay Area hip-hop song “I Got 5 On It” by Oaktown natives the Luniz. What they failed to mention is that “I Got 5 On It” is also a classic weed song (as in…
