Martha Stewart doesn't need anymore legal trouble. But maybe the cops should sniff her brownies.
On tomorrow's edition of "The Martha Stewart Show," Martha mixes up a batch of brownies with Snoop Dogg, a rapper infamous for his unabashed love for and promotion of marijuana. As the odd couple stirs their respective mixing bowls, Snoop mentions that the recipe is missing a key ingredient.
Snoop: Trying to make some brownies but we missing the most important part of the brownies ... Martha: Which is, which is ...? Snoop: No sticks, no seeds, no stems ... Martha: He wants green brownies. Snoop: Greener the better.
Check out this surreal sneak peek clip:
Alas, he'll have to settle for green sprinkles on top for this batch.
Apple's iPhone store has rolled out it's share of hits and misses in the hundreds of thousands of apps stocked on the virtual shelves.
And this one definitely fits the "hits" category.
Cannabis - the app - is now ready to download to help you find cannabis, the smokin' weed. For just $2.99, the Cannabis app will help you track down marijuana near you! Though, the $2.99 does not cover the purchase of the sherm itself. Of course, this is for medicinal purposes only, according to the creators of the app, Ajnag, and not for when desperation sets in at midnight at the frat house.
Sorry, kids, but it looks like a prescription is the next thing you'd need to make this app useful, and Apple currently doesn't not offer that in download form.
But let Ajnag explain the goals themselves:
There's nothing worse than being a qualified patient with a physician's recommendation to consume cannabis-- commonly referred to as marijuana. You never know where to find cannabis resources near you. Sure, you could search the web but that's as tedious as flipping through the phone book or browsing through the advertisements in the latest cannabis publication.
That's why Cannabis is the latest "must-have" iPhone app. Not only does the program give you the nearest medical cannabis collectives, doctors, attorneys, organizations, and other patient services, it also gives you real-time, door-to-door directions sent right to your phone.
And just who is Ajnag? It's a grass-roots (sorry) organization that's a self-described "cannabis lifestyle network." Basically, a group looking to push the "legalize it" agenda, hemp cultivation, medical marijuana ideals, etc.:
AJNAG (Ahj-Nag) is an activism, resource, and lifestyle network cultivated by the people to help connect, educate, and empower individuals on the cultural, economic, and medicinal benefits of: decriminalization, production, regulation, distribution, and taxation of Cannabis sativa L. AJNAG is about raising the cannabis consciousness by using the power of the World Wide Web and Digital Media.
A quick search of North Side Chicago area codes prompted two listings of sympathetic organizations - Northwestern University NORML and Columbia NORML - but no cannabis for sale sites since, you know, it's not legal here. NORML, of course, is yet another pot-friendly national group looking to legalize.
Considering the staggering array of seemingly benign apps the iTunes store isn't offering, it's a puzzler how this got past the app Nazis at Apple. Makes you wonder what they've been smoking?
As for the app itself? A lot of folks complaining in the user reviews that it's sluggish and incomplete. Sounds like a weed app, alright.
Oh, and it also causes paranoia and they'd like to see listings for convenience stores with frozen burritos if possible.
Once again, legions of weed fans will fire up as 420 Day - the National Smoker's Day - hits. Recognized as a time when potheads everywhere can break out of their rut, sit back and get baked, err, wait, that's actually like every other day of their lives. Well, whatever. It hits on a Monday this year, which at least assures that some of us won't be having a bleak start to the work week, if the blazing conversation on Twitter is any measure.
If you're still having a problem chilling, Snoop Dogg was good enough to create a wake-and-bake soundtrack appropriate perfect for the event.
So you know how sometimes you'll be trolling the Internets, searching for the answers to life's deep questions? Well sometimes, friends, the Internets provide.
Snoop Dogg has a NSFW live show on Ustream - his wake-and-bake blowout. He sparks up, plays tunes, smokes weed, chats with his Twitter followers, hits the chronic and even does some occasional free-styling.
There's so many reasons to check this out - Snoop's easy humor, the fan questions and comments, the music - that you almost lose sight of the constant smoke billowing around the room. It's like being in the middle of a forest fire as the D-O-Double-G ceaselessly and unapologetically tokes on fat splifs.
And the vibe of the show? L-A-I-D back, of course.
The country - the world, for that matter - is weathering one of the worst economic doldrums in its history. Businesses are folding, jobs are being lost and people are looking for hope that things will, one day get better.
Some really desperate and deluded folks are even looking to the government for answers. And for once, they might be onto something. Turns out the powers-that-be are turning to a miracle cure for what ails us.
