Los Angeles February 12th 2016, try to remember, where you were when Comedian Bill Maher smoked and passed marijuana a” joint” on Live TV. Real Time host Bill Maher is now being sued by the FCC ready for it… 1.7 million dollars.
FCC chairman Tom Wheeler “What if a kid sees the episode and thinks smoking weed is okay? “I could understand his point if alcohol and prescription drug companies were not running rampart on TV and adding their social acceptance. It would seem…hypercritical right Mr. Chairman... “One of his panel members was obviously not happy with the event and Maher put her in danger from the potentially deadly marijuana smoke.” While zero deaths have not been confirmed from cannabis usage it has been a godsend for the numerous medicinal patients.
Maher as a medical card holder in California may have violated their terms. There seems to be an issue as to him sharing his prescription with others. “Sure, maybe I should not have passed the joint, but I’m not a selfish person. Puff, puff pass is the saying in case you didn’t know.”
Maher proclaimed a pro-cannabis statement then ended his Friday night show by smoking and passing a joint. That reminds me, it is time to end my show.

Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Eugene Monroe won’t be on the next roster, and it may be for his advocacy for medical marijuana. Monroe’s January recovery from a shoulder injury inspired him to write about marijuana versus opioids, and donate $80,000 to medical marijuana researchers at both Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania. His work, he tweeted, was all for his “brothers… the players that make up the team… our future health and wellness.”
Unfortunately, his offseason, offtopic efforts failed to impress the Ravens officials. In the days leading up to his release, attitudes from the organization led Monroe to wonder if his marijuana advocacy was to blame. Interestingly, his original questions were less about the drug, and more about overall NFL healthcare.
It is arguable that reviewing old drug testing policies is going to be a big trend in U.S. companies in the nearest future. If the weed is legal, and the job can be done safely under cannabis influence, why would an employer be concerned about marijuana consumption enough to spend money on drug testing?
Current situation is creating a whole lot of consequences, like people easily cheating on drug tests by adding water to their urine, or other people making money on ‘weed detox sets’ that claim to free your system of cannabis traces in just three days. More than 93% test negative, but employers continue testing. In most cases, we just avoid working for companies that drug test employees.
