WOW….I couldn’t believe when i read this piece of news recently … read on
A man plans to file a human-rights complaint against an amusement park after security guards told him to cover up his Bob Marley T-shirt or leave the premises. But Montreal’s La Ronde insists it didn’t have a problem with the shirt’s portrait of the late reggae legend — just the cluster of green, marijuana-shaped leaves that surround it. He says security staff singled him out because they associated a black man wearing a Marley shirt with something criminal.
“The onus is on Six Flags to explain to me, the Marley family, fans of Bob Marley around the world, how this T-shirt is deemed ‘inappropriate’ to ordinary families,” Moise said in a statement. But a spokesman for La Ronde indicates that only the pictures of pot leaves on the shirt were considered offensive under the Six Flags’ corporate-wide dress code. “It’s not the image of Bob Marley that’s in question here,” Martin Roy said Wednesday. “It’s the dozens of marijuana leaves on the shirt that were judged by the employees as not family friendly.”
No that is not a typo …. Law personnel in British Columbia, CANADA came across a crop of marijuana being guarded by Bears. Apparently it is the most bizarre security system they have ever encountered.
Police regularly monitor several drug sites in the hills above Christina Lake. But a recent raid on one marijuana grow operation had an unexpected defense system. Police found at least ten bears patrolling the grounds around thousands of pot plants. The bears were fed dog food and vegetables to keep them in the area. Police say the bears were so docile the animals were actually playful as they approached.
“They were tame, they just sat around watching. At one point one of the bears climbed onto the hood of a police car, sat there for a bit and then jumped off,” said Royal Canadian Mounted Police sergeant Fred Mansveld. Two people have been arrested, and are facing charges. I wonder if Yogi Bear was one of them!!!
I feel sorry for the kid that keeps getting recruited by the big goons to do their dirty work. Are they that stupid to think that no one is gonna see or smell the pot on a bicycle? Especially if you want the kid to cross the US border? They should try bicycling over the border themselves to see if this ish works. These dudes need to learn about smuggling from Pablo Escabar… lol But read up on a true story below that made news today!
PHOENIX (Reuters) – U.S. border police have nabbed a Mexican teen caught cycling over the Arizona border with a load of marijuana — his second such arrest in five days, authorities said.
Border Patrol agents in Yuma, in far western Arizona, said they arrested the 17-year-old boy pedaling a bicycle loaded with 30 pounds of pot near the Colorado River on Sunday evening.
Agents ran a records check and found they had arrested the same boy in the same area on July 14, on that occasion wheeling into the United States with 27 pounds of marijuana on his bicycle.
Mexican drug cartels frequently use youngsters to ferry narcotics over the U.S. border because as juveniles they often can avoid prosecution.
Border Patrol agents turned the unnamed bicycling youth over to the Yuma County Narcotics Task Force.

An interesting book that we found online… I have not read it but would love to. If anyone has read the book, leave a comment letting us know how it is.
Joyce Taylor was a nice high school girl, maybe a little wild, and when she is kicked out of school for doing a bump-and-grind number on a cafeteria table she moves to the big city and gets a job. There she meets a man who introduces her to the smoky world of jazz and before she knows it, she’s inhaled some of that sweet, sweet smoke. When the cops get in on the action the misery starts and Joyce finds herself on a roller coaster ride to oblivion. N.R. de Mexico wrote as if he knew his subject, yet refrained from getting as preachy about dope as many of his contemporaries did. The pot-smoking jazz scene of the 50s is well described and filled with smart, sympathetic people.
