Student Passes Out Pot-Laced Lollipops To Classmates: Cops

0

n-LOLLIPOP-large570A police chief in Connecticut says a girl handed out marijuana-laced lollipops to classmates at her high school, and one student was hospitalized.

Enfield Police Chief Carl Sferrazza tells the Journal Inquirer that the Enfield High student acknowledged sharing the tainted lollipops, which were laced with THC, an active ingredient in marijuana. She said she received the candy in the mail from California.

The police chief says a 16-year-old girl was hospitalized overnight Monday after consuming one of the lollipops. But he says the student who brought the tainted lollipops to school denied giving any to her.

Because the student is being charged is a juvenile, she will not be arrested. Sferrazza says she’ll instead be referred to juvenile court.

Police Offer To Return Harvested Pot Plants If Rightful Owner Just Gives Them A Call

seizedpotAfter harvesting a small crop of marijuana plants found growing in a field, beneficent Pennsylvania police have offered to return the pot once its rightful owner contacts them.

Officers in York County reported finding the plants in Dover Township near Colonial Road. “If they are yours and you can prove ownership…please call to claim them,” investigators offered.

Police can be reached at (717) 292-3647. As of 4:20 PM Wednesday, the pot has yet to be claimed from the Northern York County Regional Police, according to Lt. David Lash.

The Dream Comes True: Pot-infused Pizza Sauce Comes To Marijuana Dispensaries

0

Looks like the pizza industry is going to pot — literally.

o-PODEY-PIZZA-SAUCE-570L.A.-based Podey Pizza has started selling jars of pot-infused pizza sauce at marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington State and Colorado.

Each 5-ounce jar of Podey Pizza sauce sells for $20 and contains 300mg of medical cannabis per jar, enough for one large pizza or two smaller ones, according to Steve Thomas, Podey Pizza’s vice president of operations.

“You can eat three slices and be fully medicated.”

Thomas believes his pot-laced pizza sauce is a good option for medical marijuana users who don’t to rely on sweets like candies and cookies to get their cannabis.

But getting there wasn’t easy.

“We spent a lot of time getting it right so the sauce didn’t taste ‘green,'” Thomas said. “We probably made 150-200 pizzas and would invite three or four people to try them. We even put ads looking for people who were 300 pounds plus to make sure the dosage was right.”

Thomas said the sauce is slightly sweet and uses tomatoes, mixed with cannabis-laced safflower oil.

“We may come out with a garlickly version or more of a butter sauce,” he said.

Podey Pizza is marketing itself as the world’s first pot-laced pizza sauce, but since Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana, a number of companies have been trying to make a lot of dough by selling pot-infused pizzas, and pizza products.

Stoned Oven Gourmet Mandibles, also based in Los Angeles, just started selling six-inch pot pizzas for $10 each.

Each pizza contains 250 mg of ethanol-extracted tetrahydrocannabinol, otherwise known as THC concentrate, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Best of all: The company will deliver its cannabis pizzas to stoners who live in the right neighborhoods.

Earlier this summer, Vancouver’s Mega ILL cafe made headlines by selling a “medicated pizza,” which is drizzled with oil extracted from weed before being cooked.

Pizza and pot may be a natural combination, but Thomas says to prevent legal issues, sales are currently limited to dispensaries.

However, the success of recreational pot in Colorado and Washington has Thomas dreaming of the day when he can sell to regular pizzerias.

He already has a customer in mind: Denver Broncos quarterback Payton Manning, who owns a few Papa John’s pizza franchises in Colorado and recently noticed the positive effects legalized pot was having on pizza sales.

“We would love to sell to Papa John’s,” Thomas laughed. “That’s the dream.”

Free Marijuana For Low-Income Residents Under New Berkeley Law

0

A California city is offering a unique benefit for low-income residents: free marijuana.

An Initiative To Legalize Marijuana In California To Appear On Nov. Ballot
Starting next summer, Berkeley residents who earn less than $32,000 per year (or $46,000 per family) and have a prescription for medical marijuana will be able to get it for free from one of the dispensaries operating within the city.

Under a law passed unanimously by the city council, dispensaries must set aside 2 percent of their pot for distribution to the poor.

Not everyone is on board with the plan.

“It’s ludicrous, over-the-top madness,” Bishop Ron Allen, head of the International Faith Based Coalition, told Fox News. “Why would Berkeley City Council want to keep their poverty-stricken under-served high, in poverty and lethargic?”

But supporters say that marijuana is recognized as a legal medicine in the state of California (although not federally). And as medicine, people who need it shouldn’t be kept away from it due to lack of funds.

“Basically, the city council wants to make sure that low-income, homeless, indigent folks have access to their medical marijuana, their medicine,” Berkeley City Councilmember Darryl Moore told CBS San Francisco.

“There are some truly compassionate cases that need to have medical marijuana,” Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates told The New York Times. “But it’s expensive. You hear stories about people dying from cancer who don’t have the money.”

Despite the controversy, many dispensaries say this won’t change much since they already set aside a certain amount of weed for compassionate (a.k.a. free) distribution.

“We do this on our own, so we certainly welcome the city mandating that all dispensaries create these sorts of programs,” Sean Luse, chief operating officer of Berkeley Patients Group dispensary, told Berkeleyside over the summer.

However, Luse added that he thinks 1 percent, rather than 2 percent, would be a more appropriate target.

“I do think there could be problems if we’re oversupplying demand and giving away more cannabis than is legitimately needed,” Luse said. “We’ll see how this plays out.”

Nothing like those dog days of summer, high on meth, burglarizing a home and cooling down by splashing toilet water on your face

0

A 45-year-old man allegedly burglarized a home while being high on meth on Thursday night.

4609687_GParadise Valley police say a homeowner called in a burglary around 9:30 p.m. at their home near Lincoln Drive and 32nd Street.

The homeowner said the burglar was a white male wearing only jeans and no shirt.

The suspect fled the scene as the officers arrived, but was later found hiding behind an air conditioning unit near Lincoln and Palo Cristi Road.

He was identified as Christopher Fulton.

Fulton was taken to a police station where police say he admitted to being extremely high on meth and to drinking vodka earlier in the evening.

Police say he started splashing himself with toilet water to try and cool off, but became very sick.

The Phoenix Fire Department was called and he eventually had to be taken to a hospital for an accelerated heart rate and the combination of drugs and alcohol in his system.

Charges are pending.

Officers say it does not appear anything was taken from the home.

Woman Allegedly Poisoned Roommates After She Was Caught Having Sex With Dog

0

A 53-year-old woman has been arrested after police said she tried to poison her roommate and boyfriend, upset that the boyfriend had broken up with her because she’d been having sex with her roommate’s two German shepherds.

Shari-WaltersSheriff’s deputies said Shari Walters’ roommate walked into a shed in Albuquerque in late July at their shared home and found Walters having sex with one of the animals, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday in Metropolitan Court. The roommate, who police said was “shocked,” walked back into the home and waited for Walters to return.

Walters returned to the home and admitted having sex with the dog, Spike. The roommate then told Walters’ boyfriend, who broke up with her “because she was having sex with dogs,” the officer wrote in the criminal complaint.

The three were having dinner later that evening, and both the roommate and Walters’ ex-boyfriend said they noticed that the water they were drinking was strangely colored and that the food they were eating tasted different.

Both alleged victims reported some minor symptoms after eating the food, which Walters later told them was laced with toilet bowl cleaner and rubbing alcohol. Walters told her boyfriend she had been having sex with dogs since she was 14 years old, according to the complaint.

Walters was sent to the University of New Mexico Hospital for a mental evaluation, and she’s now being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center on $20,000 cash bail. She’s facing charges of animal cruelty and assault with the intent to commit a violent felony.

A veterinarian examined both animals and found minor injuries, as well as “unusual symptoms” in one of the dogs that could indicate sexual abuse, according to the criminal complaint.

The roommate and ex-boyfriend require additional medical treatment as a result of having ingested the chemicals, according to the complaint.
