State highways’ brilliantly simple plan to stop stoners from stealing ‘420’ mile markers

Interstate 420-mile markers are apparently such popular trophies among stoners that some states have decided to take a unique and unexpected measure to stop the theft of these signs. Rather than replace the mileposts as soon as they’re stolen, Idaho decided to take a different course of action that might be more efficient. Enter the 419.9-mile mark seen in the image above!

Marijuana Breathalyzer

Marijuana breathalyzer being developed to keep potheads off the road

Marijuana breathalyzer being developed to keep potheads off the road

As the social stigma associated with marijuana slowly evaporates with each passing year, it may be just a matter of time before the laws that govern drinking and driving are applied to smoking pot.

Anticipating that change, one Canadian company has already begun testing a breathalyzer for marijuana, the first of its kind. Based out of Vancouver, the aptly named Cannabix Technologies has been testing a prototype device that can accurately detect the presence of THC in a person’s system. As opposed to alcohol breathalyzers, however, the pot breathalyzer in question is unable to measure the degree to which a person who has been smoking pot is impaired.

What coffee, alcohol, marijuana and other drugs do to your brain

There are plenty of substances out there that mess with your head. Some are legal, and some aren’t. Some are dangerous, and some are helpful. Some are more addictive than others. But the fact remains that all of them act directly on your brain — of course, the more of them you combine, the more complicated the side-effects. More →

DEA official warns that legalizing pot could create legion of stoner rabbits

We’ve heard plenty of arguments against legalizing marijuana in recent years, but every once in a while someone comes out with something brand new. Such is the case with Drug Enforcement Agency special agent Matt Fairbanks, who explained recently to The Washington Post that one of the unheralded dangers of pot legalization is that it could lead to a population of stoner rabbits who become too lazy to run away from predators.

Marijuana Legalized In Alaska

You have a brand-new reason to visit Alaska – it’s just legalized pot

You have a brand-new reason to visit Alaska – it’s just legalized pot

Given that smoking marijuana is sometimes the only way to understand certain statements made by one of its former governors, it’s all too proper that Alaska this week became the third state in the U.S. to legalize pot. The Associated Press brings us word that smoking, growing and possessing pot is now legal in America’s biggest state “thanks to a voter initiative aimed at clearing away 40 years of conflicting laws and court rulings.” More →

The impossible has happened: Washington has too much marijuana

Have you ever been tempted to buy your dog a truckload of steaks just to see if there was a limit to how many of them they could eat at just one sitting? Well when marijuana became legal in the state of Washington, we were similarly curious about whether there was a theoretical maximum amount of pot that its residents could smoke… and now our questions have been answered.

Video: Nancy Grace gets humiliated by 2 Chainz in a debate on legalizing pot

No one will ever accuse rapper 2 Chainz of being a presidential-level debater. That said, he didn’t have to be when he went up against Nancy Grace in a debate on legalizing pot this week because Grace did just about the worst job advocating against pot legalization that we’ve ever seen. And yes, her arguments were so bad that we have a hard time really believing she once had a successful career as a prosecutor. More →

Science just gave us another great reason to legalize pot

We’ve learned about a couple of good medical benefits to marijuana this year and now it seems there’s another one: Using medicinal marijuana makes it less likely that you’ll become hooked on painkillers. CNN reports that a new study published this in the JAMA Internal Medicine journal finds that states that have legalized medicinal marijuana have significantly fewer deaths from painkiller overdoses.
