Only in CA is this an issue. We brought you the original Prop 215 to allow medicinal marijuana. When I was in college, maybe you had pot brownies, where you would taste the actual pot, because it was not strained out, but now with technology, the ability to make candy is crazy.
Calif. Trick-Or-Treaters Warned Of Pot-Laced Candy

Trick-or-treaters in California have been warned to watch out for pot-laced candy this Halloween, the Los Angles Times reported Friday.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department issued the warning to parents in light of candy and snacks containing marijuana being confiscated from pot dispensaries.
The warning comes days before Californians vote on Proposition 19, a marijuana legalization measure.
California has state laws allowing the medical use of marijuana, but the sheriff’s department said the confiscated items were untested and unlicensed.
Officials said in their warning that parents should check Halloween candy and other snacks for indications the items were tampered with.
Makes a dude want to dress up and go out knocking on doors that smell like Indonesia, if you know what I mean…

Owners of Brett Farve rejoice!
(I am one of those owners who had to bench him, even though I was able to steal him in the 9th round of a ten team draft)
Traffic Cops, be afraid, be very afraid in the Twin Cities! remember “straight cash homie” is going to a city near you!

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss was arrested Tuesday after being accused of bumping a police traffic officer with his car.
The officer tried to stop Moss from making an illegal turn, and Moss used his car to slowly push the officer along the street, police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington said.
Barrington said an assault charge was being considered.
The officer was not seriously hurt, WCCO-TV reported
Where is Ludacris when you need him?
Maybe we should extend an Amber warning to all the skeezers and skanks and scallywags (all better known as hoes, and like method man and redman, I mean it in a good way)
The Vikings sent a third-round pick to the Patriots in return for Moss, who becomes a key weapon for Minnesota QB Brett Favre.
The teams had not yet confirmed the trade. But Vikings S Madieu Williams said on Twitter that the deal was “official.”
Moss returns to the team where he spent the first seven years of his career. Moss caught 574 passes for 9,142 yards and 90 TDs from 1998-2004 in Minnesota.
It leaves the Patriots and QB Tom Brady without the stretch-the-field wideout who set an NFL single-season record of 23 receiving TDs in 2007.
From the Patriots position, they were on the come-up. First, they got more for the guy then what they paid for. When he was dealt from the blogs favorite team, the RAIDERS, they only got a 4th round pick, because they were happy to get rid of his contract and his dour attitude. (We still miss what could have been here in Oakland Randy) It is rare in the NFL that assets acquire more value later in their careers. Second, they did not have to give him an expensive contract extension.
Moss did not get a contract extension from the Vikings as part of the deal, NFL Network reported.
ESPN reported that Patriots coach Bill Belichick spoke by phone to inform Moss of the trade on Wednesday morning. The network described their conversation as cordial.
For Favre, the trade gives him a serious receiving threat that he has long lobbied to acquire and that he has lacked this season with Sidney Rice injured. Favre, with the Packers in 2007, pushed the team to acquire Moss but lost out to the Patriots.
This is exactly what Father Time, I mean Favre needs to get the offense on a roll. Soon, they will get Sidney Rice back and that offense will be firing on all cylinders. You will have AP (not our boy tophatal, but Adrian Peterson) Headache (not the AND1 baller, but Percy Harvin) Moss, and Rice. Plus, you have Shank Em at TE, so weapons are everywhere.
The receiver will return to New England on Oct. 31, when the Vikings visit Foxborough to the play Patriots (a game that occurs only once every eight years). Fox was already scheduled to broadcast that game nationally at 4:15 p.m. ET.
Moss’ final game in a New England uniform on Monday turned out to be his only in more than three years in which he did not catch a pass. The Herald reported that Moss had asked the Patriots to trade him after Week 1, when he had an outburst about his contract following a win against Cincinnati. Moss later apologized and said he and coach Belichick had cleared the air.
Moss, whose deal expires after the season, said after Week 1 that he wanted to stay with Patriots but added he thought this would be his final year in New England.
Moss is set to appear on Monday Night Football for the second straight week when the Vikings travel to play the New York Jets next week. He’ll likely be matched up again with Jets CBDarrelle Revis, who hasn’t played since tweaking his hamstring on a TD pass he allowed to Moss in Week 2.
Moss will be just second player to appear on MNF back to back. Keith Browner played for the San Francisco 49ers against the New York Giants on Oct. 5, 1987, then played for the Los Angeles Raiders against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 12 (viaESPN and Elias Sports Bureau).
Since the Vikings have already had their bye and the Patriots’ is Sunday, Moss could become the sixth player to play in 17 games if he plays in the rest of the Vikings’ contests.
This is another bonus to fantasy players who got jobbed this week by his unusual lack of effectiveness. It is the functional equivalent of the “do-over” in backyard sports. I guarantee that Favre will target him early and often…he is sure to be a “hit”!
Don’t you have to be high to read the book if you are an adult? I don’t know, but that is one franchise that I have never really gotten behind. It just isn’t for me and that is fine. J.K. Rawling is a genius and all good graces that fall her way are well earned.
The Daily Mail is all up in his business…
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe today ‘categorically’ denied he had smoked a cannabis joint at a party after pictures emerged of him allegedly using the drug.
The 20-year-old actor was pictured on the front page of a tabloid newspaper allegedly smoking a cannabis joint at a party in North London.
But the film star said he had not smoked anything other than tobacco.
A spokeswoman for Radcliffe said: ‘Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this.’
‘We are considering our position and will be taking all necessary action in relation to such allegations.’
That is a decent defense for now. The problem is that others might come out of the woodwork to say that they smoked with him, or other potentially plausible, or true stories.
The accusation came as shock to fans and could well have land him in trouble with bosses in charge of the family friendly Harry Potter franchise.
The pictures were taken by Wadia Tazi, a fellow guest at the party, held at a high-rise in Camden.
Memo to self, “Never invite this attention seeking whore to any parties!” Other people should feel free to do the same. Ultimately, this is like the Michael Phelps story, which is to classify this as a non-story. Famous person got hight at a party, is like saying that water is wet.
‘At one point, a girl dragged him away, saying: ‘”come on Daniel, follow me. You don’t trust me, do you?” She pulled him into the toilet and started drawing a huge comedy beard on his face,’ Tazi is reported to have told the newspaper.
The scandal comes just four months after Radcliffe’s co-star Jamie Waylett admitted that he cultivated ten cannabis plants.
The 19-year-old, who plays Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe, escaped a spell behind bars and was instead ordered to do 120 hours of unpaid work.
Radcliffe’s role as the schoolboy wizard made him a multi-millionaire and household name at the age of 12.
The price of fame is high. If all he does is smoke some herb, then he is in good shape. Don’t move to the sauce or blow, and you will be okay. Also, this is a warning to watch who you associate with, since they will not have your best interest at heart.
Plus, dude likes that nose candy…
So, all and all, it could be worse….
Because this woman would destroy both of you combined.
I would like to see him and Tim Lincecum go at it for biggest bong rip…but instead, he is making putts…
Forget about Raymond, everyone loves marijuana, or MJ, weed, cheeba, etc…
Especially actors, or people on TV with very little talent…
But, at least the dude is looking out for others…radaronline.com points out his generosity.
Andy Milonakis looked like he had had the munchies, as he entered Katsuya, a Los Angeles, California restaurant on Tuesday night.
As the 33-year-old MTV star entered, he brandished a bag containing a mysterious green substance, handing some of it to a beggar nearby.
Better yet, let’s just let Milonakis say it himself: “I just gave weed to a homeless man in front of paparazzi,” Andy Tweeted. “What was I thinking?”
ESPN.com tells the story of Tim Lincecum’s love of the weed…
Washington State Patrol spokesman Steve Schatzel said Thursday that the 2008 Cy Young Award winner and former star at the University of Washington was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 5 in the town of Hazel Dell, about four miles north of the Oregon border, on Oct. 30.
An officer approached Lincecum’s 2006 Mercedes and smelled marijuana as the pitcher rolled down his window. Schatzel said Lincecum immediately complied with a request to hand over the drug and a marijuana pipe from the car’s center console.
The amount measured was 3.3 grams. Schatzel said police consider that a small amount for personal use, well below the maximum of 40 grams before possession is classified differently and carries a more severe penalty.
The incident was first reported by The Columbian in Vancouver, Wash.
“It’s not really out of the ordinary. It happens every day,” Schatzel said of the volume of marijuana Lincecum handed over. “It was about the size of a thumb, the whole thumb.”
Lincecum could face potential fines totaling $622 for the misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia counts plus the citation for driving 74 mph in a 60 mph zone, Schatzel said.
The 25-year-old All-Star starter entered a plea of not guilty through his attorney on Monday, according to records in Clark County District Court. A hearing that had been scheduled for Friday morning was canceled, pending a pretrial conference between Lincecum’s attorney and a county prosecutor on Nov. 23.
Lincecum is currently scheduled to appear before a judge on Dec. 22.
The Giants said they were aware of the situation but did not immediately have a comment.
The native of the Seattle suburb of Bellevue went 15-7 with a 2.48 ERA in 32 starts and 225 1/3 innings in 2009, his third season in the major leagues. He is 40-17 with a 2.90 ERA in his career and could be getting a huge, multimillion-dollar raise from salary arbitration this offseason.
Teammates consider the smallish right-hander a quirky perfectionist. They also consider him the “Franchise,” the nickname they gave him when he broke into the big leagues only a year out of college. Others see his boyish face, shaggy dark hair, diminutive frame — and his dominance — and call him “The Freak.”
San Francisco chose him 10th overall in the 2006 draft out of Washington, and he instantly became the organization’s top pitching prospect since Hall of Famer Juan Marichal signed with the New York Giants as an amateur free agent in 1957.
Just like I felt with Michael Phelps, this is not a story. The story is really more ammunition that we just need to legalize it and quit trying to demonize people who are smoking it.
Need to find some marijuana quick? There’s an APP for that…Signs that Apple might have taken it a bit too far…
July 20, 2009
You know where we stand here at Too Old, we are NOT down with the IPhone. Ronin wrote about the Pre here, which I think that I am going to switch to, since my phone is giving me grief. Ronin also talked about the lengths that these IPhone hipsters are willing to go through to get their phone, which is basically the same phone, with 3G! (shit we already had on other phones…way to catch up Apple!)
Well, IPhone hipsters have taken it to a new level now with their latest app.
CNET.com shows the lengths Apple and other developers are going to get your money…
States that are low on funds are steadily inhaling the idea of taxing the sale of a substance that gets you high.
Meanwhile, as if anticipating an uptick in demand, the folks at Apple have approved a new iPhone and iPod Touch app that will allow a little more mobile access to the soothing properties of marijuana.
Your legal marijuana experience, that is.
Some states–California being in the surprising vanguard–have made the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes legal.
The Cannabis app’s first step, therefore, is help you find a doctor who can approve your deep medicinal need.
If your medical condition is deemed to be sufficiently pressing, the app then directs you to the nearest medical marijuana facilities. Yes, it offers precise directions, just in case you aren’t feeling at your most alert.
It even offers you the finest and most responsible locations of marijuana coffee shops in, say, Amsterdam, should you happen to have wandered to those parts.
However, it doesn’t stop there.
Should you find yourself in some untoward legal kerfuffle in relation to your marijuana use, a quick sideways glance at the Cannabis app will find you the location of the nearest and finest lawyer who specializes in marijuana-related cases.
The app is the creation of AJNAG.com, which describes itself as a “cannabis lifestyle network”.
According to Cannabisapps.com, AJNAG.com “will donate 50 cents for every ‘Cannabis’ purchase to a cannabis non-profit reform fund, which will be setup once the application reaches 1,000 subscriptions.”
I bet that they “forget” to make the donation due to all the smoking…but what happens when you find the place, get your “medicinal marijuana” and then lose your iphone in the haze of weed smoke?
There is something to be enjoyed in the language the organization uses: “Our goal is to put the power of cannabis change in your pocket while you enjoy the most sticky and potent iPhone application available!”
Sticky and potent. Yes, exactly the words to describe the finest iPhone apps.
Where is my backyard meth lab app? Someone should get right on that one. Why are we denying meth-heads their ability to get their fix?

Rockstars are supposed to let it all hang out. They are what the common man strives for. It’s the reason that I play the lotto when it gets over 100 million. To live the life…
Michael Phelps is doing that…we all remember this picture from last year that should not be a news story…
This is one of his jump offs that is letting everyone know that she allowed him to beat it up and that she is freaky…
DRUGS shame Olympic swimming star Michael Phelps plunged into bed with a pair of strippers – then bragged of getting out of his head on dope.
But lapdancer Theresa White last night revealed how CRY BABY Phelps instantly changed his tune when the News of the World published shocking pictures of him puffing on a marijuana bong as he celebrated his record Beijing gold medal haul.
In an exclusive interview, Theresa told us: “I saw Michael after the photos were published in February and he got really upset. He turned to me and said, ‘I can’t believe that happened. I’m terrified my career will be over.’ He was almost in tears.”
Let me step in to defend Phelps. First, he almost cried, but was man enough to hold it in until he got to the car or she left.
Second, she is a stripper that hit on Phelps! She came looking for the long and strong. So, yes, my man is and should be always worried about his money. I got my mind on my money and my money on my mind… Lose sight of one, is to lose both.
Afterwards she said: “I think the whole thing’s made Michael paranoid. Since the story got out I’ve seen him tell friends that he’ll throw their mobile camera phones in the river if he sees them using them around him.
“I guess he’s scared someone else will snap a picture of him doing something he shouldn’t.”
GOOD FREAKING MOVE! The sextexting and taking pictures that get hacked (Cassie and RiRi) is old news. The only way to protect yourself is to be vigilant. Good to know that he is on his grizzy and is watching his back.
And she confided that he has an Olympic-size stash of secrets he’d rather keep dark, like how he:
- TRIED to buy more cannabis to keep HER happy.
- INDULGES his fantasies with a string of beauties constantly on call for sex.
- CHEWS tobacco and litters his home with foul makeshift spittoons.
- LOVES to bet and yearns to be a professional poker hustler.
- BLUBS at the drop of a hat and is a real mummy’s boy.
Look at it in context. One is okay, because he is trying to make HER HAPPY! so, he is trying to get her some herb and hope that she will continue to be in the mood for freaky threesomes. What is wrong with that?
Two is okay because he is keeping of stable of beauties to call and rotate through. That is again for the best.
Three and five are bad, but, its his house and there is nothing wrong with being a mommas boy…she brought you into this world and can make two that look just like you.
As for four, there is nothign wrong with wanting to play poker
Theresa, just five feet tall and dwarfed by 6ft 4ins Phelps, recalled how they first met at a strip club where she works in his home town of Baltimore, Maryland, on a drunken night out last November-the same month our famous bong pictures were taken.
Boozy Phelps invited the 34D Latina and several of her lapdancing pals back to his £1.1 million waterfront apartment. “Michael came in with a bunch of friends to celebrate,” said Theresa.
“They were there a couple of hours and asked three of us back. Michael was a bad tipper but he was nice to me, although he was kind of mean and cocky to some of the girls.
“He said he liked short girls and I thought that was funny because he’s so tall. At the his place we started playing drinking games. Two hours later I was pretty drunk and I went up to Michael and said, ‘If you were to have a threesome tonight, who would you like it to be with?’ He told me he’d never had one before but said it would be with me and then pointed at another girl.
“Everybody else stayed put while we went upstairs and jumped into bed.
“The sex lasted for about three hours. Michael should get another Olympic gold for marathon love-making!”
After that first night of passion 23-year-old Phelps often returned to Theresa’s club. She said they met two or three times a week throughout November and December for sex and intimate chats.
And Phelps brazenly boasted to Theresa of his dope-smoking exploits. She said: “He told me he’d done marijuana since he got back from Beijing. And he tried to get some for me one night but couldn’t find any.”
Strangely, Phelps always refused to take Theresa out in public on a proper date-apart from one time he treated her to a “value deal” meal at Mexican fast food chain Taco Bell. “That was it,” she said. “He just bought me some soft tacos. No romantic candlelit dinner. He HAD said he’d take me to The Capital Grille which is one of the city’s swankiest restaurants, but it never happened. And he’s supposed to be a millionaire!
“I never saw his medals either. He doesn’t have a lot of stuff in his house. It’s bare, there’s no food. Just a pantry full of candy and a fridge full of beer.”
Soon Theresa tired of Phelps’ tight-fisted ways-and the fact he wouldn’t publicly acknowledge her as his girlfriend. “He was trying to hide his relationship with me, probably because of my job,” she said. “It didn’t bother me at first but then it started to. He tried to tell me he really liked me but I knew he just wanted sex.
“Then he became hard to get hold of and wouldn’t call back. When I ran into another girl called Jen at a party it turned out he was sleeping with BOTH of us. And I’ve heard that there are at least five or six girls he can call on any time to come over and be with him.
“Michael’s not the all-American boy the public thinks he is. I never saw him smoke marijuana but he was into booze-and chewing tobacco. When he’s been drinking that’s usually when he starts crying. He cries a lot.
“And he chews tobacco like a sailor. It’s disgusting. All over his house are plastic bottles that he spits it into.”
Theresa said she has seen Phelps just a handful of times since Christmas. “During his suspension he wasn’t really in the greatest shape,” she told us.
“He was losing his muscles and got into online poker. He’d just pretty much play that all the time. He gambled a lot for money. One of his goals is to be a poker champ.” On Tuesday the pair were reunited as Phelps celebrated the end of his suspension.
“We’d been texting each other sporadically,” said Theresa. “And Michael said he was alone at a hotel while his house was getting fixed.
“He said, ‘You can come over if you like.’ Then he sent me about 15 messages in 10 minutes asking when I was arriving. He had three friends there, all playing poker online on their laptops.
“When I got to the suite I went to the bathroom and Michael followed me in even though his friends were sitting there just a few feet away.
“He started to kiss me and we had sex. He said he definitely wasn’t doing weed now and hadn’t even been drinking as he was getting back in shape.”
Despite everything, Theresa is happy to be a sex buddy on call for the athlete, whose product endorsements alone are estimated to pull in more than £3 million a year.
“He’s a person I can just hook up with and it doesn’t bother me,” she said. “But I don’t see a future between us. His mother would never approve.
“What she thinks really matters to him. She’s so strait-laced and they’d both be concerned that someone like me would hurt his career.
“Michael’s definitely a Momma’s boy. He talks about her a lot, and he calls her and texts her a lot. She’s probably the most important person in his life. It’s hard to compete.
“But Michael is a young guy who likes to have fun. He might not be doing marijuana any more but he sure likes to party. That’ll never change.”
So what was wrong with what she said?
We here at Too Old love the music. In fact, if you look on the side of the Blogroll, you can see that we have been repping the Clipse since the beginning of the blog. It’s something about the lyrics that are hilarious and felt authentic, unlike Big Boy Officer Ricky and his fake drug rap.
In this story, art imitates life. With Rick Ross and his drug life, Deeper than Rap, to that I say Deeper than rap my ass. The sad thing is Rick had a little flow to him, but his credibility is shot. When you continually lie, people will develop hate for you. All you had to do is be honest. The issue wasn’t that you had a real job and you “Hustled” as the CO. But, when faced with the truth, he was embarrassed about where he came from, which ended any possibility of being taken seriously.
But, the Clipse had grimy settings and dudes that hung with the crew that you knew were involved in “things”…things that were not legal, but also the reason why they had a lot of money…
Former Clipse manager and nightclub owner Anthony “Geezy” Gonzalez has been charged in U.S. District Court with running a $10 million a year drug ring.
Here is what a million dollars looks like.
According to federal documents, Gonzalez’s 6 year drug empire has allegedly moved 100 pounds of cocaine and over a ton of marijuana through Hampton Roads, Virginia since 2003.
Authorities suspect Gonzalez imported the drugs from Panama Florida, California, and Arizona.
The 82-count indictment states that Gonzalez laundered drug money through several front businesses, including the Clipse’s booking agency Soul Providers Management.
The federal document elaborates that the defendants painted “themselves out as music producers, rappers, entrepreneurs, club owners, clothing designers and other legitimate occupations in order to conceal the true source of their income.”
In addition, Gonzalez is accused of making several kingpin transactions, such as purchasing 10 kilos cocaine for $200,000, and 625 pounds of marijuana for $540,000 in 2007.
Gonzalez’s Encore Lounge nightclub was allegedly purchased in 2007 for $80,000 and 40 pounds of marijuana.
Earlier this year, the Virginia Beach nightclub closed down after a reputed 100-plus incidents of violence and drug transactions in 2008.
Six other co-conspirators were named in the 60-page document, including a police officer who allegedly tipped Gonzalez off about the coming indictment.
To date, Anthony “Geezy” Gonzalez remains at large. At press time, the Clipse could not be reached for comment.
Well, this is good for the new CD. They are in the news, and any news is good, when you are a rapper, especially when you rap about drugs and you are “keeping it real” Peep Pusha and Malice hold it down with Kayne… This story, just like the song, is Kinda Like a Big Deal…
That amount of weight and money will get you major time…
February 5, 2009
I guess that Micheal Phelps is back in training for the Olympics. He is working on increasing his lung capacity in his quest for nine gold medals.
Several things stand out to me with this story
1) This is not news. Kids everywhere have smoked pot. So what?
2) Someone had to sell this picture to the papers. I Hope it was worth it (and it probably was…) You are a low life for doing it. A celebrity graces your party and you take pictures of him enjoying what everyone else is doing at the party? Then you decide that you are going to sell the picture to the highest bidder?
3) The cop who said that they were going to look into charges on Phelps… STFU! Are you kidding? At best, you get him on possession of paraphernalia, nothing else. Congratulations. That is a ticket, and one in which he will never appear in your courtroom. Your moment of fame has already expired. What statement did you really think that you were making? Quit being a publicity whore and do you damn job and catch real criminals.
4) Michael Phelps. While I am a firm believer in deny, deny, deny, your apology went over really well. I think that because you addressed it immediately and showed contrition, the sponsors and advertisers are going to forgive you. The IOC cant do anything, since the alleged event happened outside of competition and you have not failed a drug test. You just need to keep it more undercover and low key. You have got to know who has your interest at heart. Not all the people you hang around are looking out for you. I bet you don’t even have a bag man…you know, the person who is responsible for handling your bag needs and making sure to procure it in all the locations that you are going to be at. Because, with all the heat on, you can now never be caught with it, or in your possession.
5) That was a nice ROOR bong that Michael Phelps is using… they make good bongs…so I’ve heard…
The Washington Post comments on the non-story…
According to a study cited in U.S. News & World Report last summer, 42 percent of Americans have at one time or another gotten sweetly baked on hay. No one is condoning illegal activity — or admitting any. But frankly, it’s better than drinking and driving, which is what Phelps did last time. And it’s organic!
“I’m 23 years old, and despite the successes I have had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner that people have come to expect from me,” Phelps said in a statement. “For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public — it will not happen again.”
Or, as David St. Hubbins says in “This Is Spinal Tap,” “I’m sure I would be more upset if I wasn’t so heavily sedated.”
We already knew that when Phelps breaks training, he means business. After he won six gold medals at the 2004 Athens Games, he was caught driving under the influence after a party in Maryland. When he’s in his competitive season, he swims for five hours a day, every day, 50 miles of laps in a week. When he’s on vacation — well. What did we think he was going to binge on this time, after winning an all-time-record eight gold medals in Beijing? Triscuits?
Now this is a story, because this dude is stupid
but Phelps is not a story…
