Philip Seymour Hoffman – Drugs = Death, Cannabis = Life

The late great Philip Seymour Hoffman became horribly addicted to opiate prescription drugs which later turned into full out heroin addiction. Every day the media reports on marijuana activism. Go into Google and check their news search engine for “marijuana” and you’ll find articles on different states putting legalized or decriminalized cannabis on some ballot. Occasionally we’ll find a piece on how cannabis has actually helped somebody improve his quality of life…or else how it could have worked.

Tommy Chong spoke out about Whitney Houston’s death, and how it may have been prevented if she stuck with weed over harder drugs and prescriptions. We’ve long admired Chong for his activism and talent, and we have to say he hit the nail on the head with his observations. We don’t really know what goes into pills and fabricated drugs, but we do know what it can do to the human body as opposed to something natural like cannabis. We can argue about Whitney’s drug use for years, but at the end of the day she still won’t be here. Tommy, who stuck with weed, is.

In Colorado, a teen suffering from a rare muscle disorder has found relief through medical marijuana. According to the article, the combined use of marijuana and cannabis-infused foods have helped his condition greatly, but his school is giving him a hard time with his medication. As a result, he’s had to leave. So while the boy’s health has improved, he feels the stigma of being an outcast. Recently hundreds of families with children that have incurable epileptic seizures have flocked to Colorado with miraculous proven results bringing seizures down from 30,000 episodes a month to a couple seizures a month.

Funny, how some of us don’t think twice about handing our kids pills that do who-knows-what and can cause all sorts of side effects, but a natural remedy is frowned upon. MMJ helped restore this teen’s life, and it is bringing quality of life to hundreds of children in Colorado.

It could save yours one day. Think about that before you go to the voting booth.


Hunger Games Actor Defends Miley Cyrus

With all the recent news of celebrities and drugs hitting the wires, it was no surprise to us to see a throwback to Miley Cyrus’s association with the herb. On and off-again boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, whom we’ll see inThe Hunger Games with stoner Woody Harrelson, sort of came to her defense, though didn’t necessarily condemn or condone her use of cannabis.

Truthfully, Cyrus is of age now and in charge of herself. Considering how prescription drugs and alcohol likely contributed to the death of Whitney Houston, and how alcohol was definitely a factor in Amy Winehouse’s death, we would much prefer that Hannah Montana has an occasional toke instead of a fifth of gin.

Marijuana, Inc. (HEMP.PK) Supports “The Cash Hyde Fund for Cancer Awareness” As Its TV Division Films Recent Fund Raising Event

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: HEMP.PK) – is proud to announce the first event covered by Marijuana, Inc. TV LIVE as its film crew documented The Art of Mary Jane Magazine/Cash Hyde Foundation’s well-attended fundraiser on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2011

In-depth coverage of the event will be made available at (site under construction). Industry insiders, notable actor and comedian Tommy Chong arrived from across the country to embrace and contribute to the cause of the nation’s youngest medical marijuana patient, Cash Hyde, who was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer when he was only two years old.

Cash, now four, has responded well to a cannabis protocol designed to help ease recovery from ongoing radiation treatments, a scenario where traditional medicines had been ineffective. The Hyde family decided on the use of cannabis for their child after weeks of watching his body failing.

Father Mike Hyde stated that the cannabis protocol has dramatically improved Cash’s ability to eat, sleep and regain bodily function. Marijuana, Inc.’s philanthropic commitment to The Cash Hyde Fund for Cancer Awareness was emphasized by a Platinum-level donation to the event, and continues following an initial stock donation, with ongoing monthly donations through the calendar year of 2012.

Marijuana, Inc.’s contribution did not end with the stock donation; they also gifted over 100 “King of Pot” half-ounce, silver commemorative coins for attendees’ gift bags. Marijuana Inc.’s CEO, Bruce Perlowin tated, “We wanted to help make the event a success not only for Cashy but to bring awareness of the benefits of medical marijuana to cancer patients nationwide. We put people first — profits second as our corporate culture, and by leading by example, we can make a difference. Through our friends, The Art of Mary Jane Magazine, Tommy Chong  and everyone who took the time to attend and participate in the silent auction at the event, we brought new attention and funding for Cash’s fight for life.”

Social Network Star Busted for Recreational “Drug”

In the award-winning film The Social Network the bong gets passed around more than once in a few scenes, but recently real life technically imitated art when one of the film’s stars was busted for possession. Armie Hammer, who played both of the Winkelvoss twins – nemeses of Jesse Eisenberg’s Mark Zuckerberg – was arrested at a border checkpoint after a small stash was found.

We read stuff like this and it makes us wonder…why put energy into arresting person, regardless of who he is, for possession of a small amount of marijuana when there are serious crimes committed and unsolved? Think of what legalization can do to eliminate the money wasted on cases like these, to say nothing of potential income to our country which is sorely needed right now. You legalize in the US, people won’t feel compelled to leave the country and spend money elsewhere.

We won’t judge Hammer for his choices in recreational activity, and hope his situation is resolved.
