So of course it happened in Santa Cruz, the Amsterdam of California, but a significant battle was won for medicinal marijuana users nevertheless.
A federal judge ruled the actions against the Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana by federal law enforcement agencies was unconstitutional. Judge Jeremy Fogel found the group was being harassed by the agencies, who were in violation of the 10th amendment by targeting the group. (The 10th amendment basically states powers not given to the federal government are given to the states to decide.) This also opens the door to allow a law suit by WAMM, the ACLU and Santa Cruz city officials to proceed against the federal government.
Thank you, Malibu Magazine. I may never read the interview inside where she probably chats about her happy married life — it would probably just make me angry anyways — but I’ll happily stare at the cover for hours.Perry
I can only imagine the anguish you would feel if you spent the last few months of your life cultivating crops, only to have federales come (when you’re finally ready to enjoy the fruits of your labor,) seize your shit and arrest you. And then to top it off, find out afterwards they’d been watching you on camera the whole time? Bastards.
Oh and this is the best part. The only thing this newly implemented, outdoor camera operation has really done is move operations indoors, consequently improving horticultural methodology to create stronger strains of marijuana.
Well played, Government. Brilliant.Perry
Devin the Dude is releasing a new album called, “Landing Gear,” October 7th, 2008. You might not have heard of him and he’s probably not even in your collection of Limewire music. And that’s your bad. Devin is the man, check this song on YouTube out.
His albums never really did that well commercially but Devin is respected in the underground community and has worked with heavyweights like Snoop, Outkast and DJ Premier.
He’s not for everybody, but if you like the Outkast-type hip hop that has a slower, synthesized beat sound and enjoyed “Doobie Ashtray,” you might want to check out his MySpace page that has a lot of the songs playing from his recently released, “Greatest Hits” album.
As with any site (re)launch, there are going to be a few kinks and bugs to work out. I just want to let everyone know we’re spotting them as fast as we can and working through each one.
There was an issue with post images from tFS v2 not showing up, and that’s been fixed. Still, there are a few gaps here and there, and we can’t spot 100% of them.
If anyone sees something wrong with the site, missing images, broken links, or anything of that nature, do us a favor and get in touch at info [at] thefreshscent [dot] com. Please include the URL and as best a description of the problem as you can.
Update: Looks like two of ‘The Dailys’ links weren’t working. We’ve fixed them, it was my fault anyway, and here they are for everyone to reference:

If this isn’t a classic example of the stoner teach, I don’t know what is.
It’s unclear whether this guy found his son’s stash or he just has a really, really hard time handling his herbature. Either way, I’d get to class 5 minutes early, every day, to hear lectures like this.Perry
I’m not quite sure if this is enough to make me overlook the fact that she’s uber-underqualified to be a vice presidential pick, but I just learned to like Sarah Palin ever so slightly more. Why? Well, she smoked some pot. Not only was she a beauty queen in the 80’s (I’m betting she did blow all over the place in a Pat Benatar haircut, there’s just no proof), but she lived in a town of less than 25,000. There’s exactly three ways to live in a town of less than 25,000: you can join a religious group, you can do drugs or you can follow your parents there against your will. I guess we know which one she chose. C’mere you sexy, small-town librarian you.Perry
A recent study was done on the effects of marijuana exposure to cats.
Okay, for the sake of time we’re just going to ignore the search for the rationale behind why this study was done. Cutting right to the obvious, the article says keep your pets away from your drugs. Awesome advice. Not only are your lovable house pets not really made to handle it, it’s a waste of weed. And they probably aren’t paying for it, and who likes a mooch? For the good of your supply, and your house pet (since if you sit around smoking with a house pet you probably can’t or won’t pay the costly veterinary bills you will incur) try to keep second-hand smoke away from your pets.
