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.

In states where edibles are available for the public to consume in terms of either legal recreational or medicinal marijuana, a labeling issue has been causing some headaches. Many edibles do not have accurate information listed on the label in terms of THC content. Edible companies have stated they have concerns because when they send the products off to be tested, often varying results are obtained by different labs doing the testing. Because of this, a new testing method has been developed.
Commonly edibles have been tested with high performance liquid chromatography, but the machines that do this test were not developed with edible marijuana products in mind as the input. A special process has been developed where edibles are ground up with dry ice or liquid Nitrogen, then diatomaceous earth is added. Using flash chromatography then allows certain products to be pulled out. After that, the high performance liquid chromatography can then be used to derive accurate results.
A Lack of Weed - the Solution Is: Legalize It! In the 80’s it was “Just Say No”, the campaign created in tandem with the War on Drugs. Since then, evidence has shown that the War has been an abject failure, and in fact may have been directly responsible for the rise in the Mexican drug cartels. Luckily there seems to be a new solution: Legal marijuana.
According to 2015 data released by the US Border Patrol, the marijuana confiscations has dropped to the lowest point in a decade, as reported by the Washington Post. Due to California, Colorado, and Washington having legal means of cultivating and distributing the plant, prices have fallen for Mexican growers.
