Collie Buddz – Good Life

One shot cah me need it bad
Next shot for the week weh me had
Three shots make me bun out me job
When me look ‘pon me check
Me feel like me get Robbed
Fourth shot fi bring in party season
Fifth shot me take just for no reason
Sixth shot make me almost forget

Ay! Sometimes inna me life I just wanna – hey
Hold a vibes and burn the marijuana – hey
Right cha now
Me ready fi go turn it up
Gimme the rum with the chaser
Ay, I got some, trees
Me waan fi roll it up, but me forget fi buy paper
This night’s going down in history
Nobody can come talk shit to me
‘Cause all me need is some girls and weed
And a lil bit a liquor and me dogs weh close to me

It’s the good life
Oh, oh, ay, oh oh, ay

Hold a vibes and burn the marijuana – hey

Oxford University To drop 10 Milli into Ganja Studies

in World by

Oxford University is jumping on the Ganja train too. This month the historic UK university announced its intent to engage in new studies into the medical use of cannabis for treating conditions like multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and arthritis as well as for dealing with nerve pain.

It follows calls from some MPs for a law to allow medical use of cannabis, with polls suggesting  58 per cent of people would back such a move. source:telegraph.co.uk

Why Does Cannabis Work for Epilepsy and Seizures?

source:medicaljane.com

Cannabis’ chemical constituent of CBD (cannabidiol) not THC is the star of this game. FDA approved clinical trials are becoming more and more common as more states and countries open-up to the economic and medicinal value of the plant. Epidiolex, a nearly pure CBD preparation (98%+) is a prime example. Its release is an astounding leap forward for cannabis and medicine.

A pure CBD formula was the safest way to begin trials on epilepsy patients because of its lack of psychoactivity. The trouble with developing a single pure CBD formula is that epilepsy has never been a one-size fits all disorder. Of the 200,000 children living with treatment-resistant epilepsy, only a fraction has access to clinical trials investigating CBD. This leaves most parents and patients to acquire their own CBD-rich cannabis, which always contains some percentage of THC. … Early results from clinical studies on GW’s Epidiolex clearly show a beneficial effect of CBD on some types of seizures, but more research is needed to fully understand whether a combination THC/CBD product can reduce the seizure burden in those patients who don’t respond to CBD alone. source

The remarkable attribute of weed stems from the fact that the human body actually produces its own “endogenous” cannabinoids (chemicals otherwise unique to the cannabis plant).  These cannabinoids—whether formed in your brain or inhaled via a nice fat joint, pipe, vaporizer etc—fit neatly into a series of receptors located throughout the human body. Their greatest concentration occurs in the hippocampus (which regulates memory), the cerebral cortex (cognition), the cerebellum (motor coordination), the basal ganglia (movement), the hypothalamus (appetite), and the amygdala (emotions). Cannabinoid receptors are similarly found in every species of animals on earth. Vice goes in on this here

It’s obvious that the more scientific study that goes into the cannabis industry the more the consumer and pharmaceutical companies will benefit hence the 11 million pound Oxford study. Now you have a broader over-standing into the recent High Times/ Damian Marley linkup. Raspect.

A message from your Bartender, Sincerely All bartenders Everywhere

in World by

Someone once pointed out to me the fact that there seems to be a micro-economy in the service industry. Restaurant workers take their tip money out to bars and clubs at night and give it to the bartenders, who promptly return it to the waiters and waitresses the next day at lunch. The cycle is almost self-sufficient and is mutually beneficial. Knowing the pain of waiting on customers, each group tips the other well and never raises a fuss. These people do not need to be educated. The rest of you do.

Many of us have stood in a noisy, crowded bar and asked, “What’s a guy got to do to get a drink around here?” Well, you’re about to find out. Here are some Do’s and Don’ts that will keep the relationship between the bartender and bar patron running smoothly.

DON’TS

Fail to have your money ready

We’re waiting on you. Everyone else is waiting on us. Therefore, by the Transitive Property of Equality, everyone is waiting on you. Rule #1: Have your shit together. Not only will following Rule #1 get you served quicker in a bar, it’s a good general rule to adopt in life and is especially helpful in Central American border crossing scenarios.

 

Whistle

This is an absolute No-No. You whistle at dogs, not people.

Wave money

Oh, you’ve got a dollar!! I’ll be right over!! Hopefully I won’t break an ankle in my fevered rush to get you your “curz lite.” Well, at least you’re not breaking the next rule.

Yell out the bartender’s first name

There’s something deeply psychologically disturbing about hearing your name called out, turning around and seeing a complete stranger. That’s one of the reasons strippers use stage names. Bartender’s do too. Mine is Pixie.

Say “make it strong!” or “put a lot of liquor in it”

Oh, you’re one of the rare drinkers that like their drink strong! When you say this, you’re assuming I make weak drinks (which is insulting) and you’re assuming that I’ll stiffen this one up for my new best buddy, you. This is the best way to get a weak drink.

Give the ever-expanding drink order

You want a Bud. I go get it. I come back and now you want a Margarita. Okay, no prob. I come back, and (oh yeah!) now you want a shot of Tequila, too. You really could have told us this all at once. See Rule #1.

Pull the redirect (or the bait ‘n’ switch)

Usually used after the money wave or the whistle, this is when the gentlemen passes his turn to the lady behind him. Yeah, um, don’t do that, okay? Chances are she’s not ready, and your weak attempt at chivalry just cost you your turn. See you in 30 minutes.

Try the confused, lost look

This is usually accompanied by the question “What kind of beer y’all got?” while looking at all the beers we have. You did know you were in a bar, right? You didn’t just appear here, did you? Refer to Rule #1.

 

Order High Maintenance shooters

Example: “Lemme get an Alabama Slammer, a Red Snapper, two Kamikazes, a Buttery Nipple and a Lemon Drop.” Usually followed by a small tip. People, these shooters are fine by themselves, but there are multiple steps involved with each one. Translation: Time Sink. You may get them this time, but you’ll probably be waited on last the next time we see your face. Here’s a clue as to whether or not you’re high maintenance; if two bartenders are working and they see you, and they flip a coin and the loser comes over to take your order, pretty good chance you’re high maintenance.

Assume we know you’re in the band

We know, we know, you’re gonna be really famous, but you’re not there yet, tiger. Tell us you’re in the band and which band you’re in. By the way, if you are in a band and get free/reduced drink prices, feel free to tip, as most bartenders are also in bands! It’s not like we don’t know how it is. Oh, and our bands will smoke your band.

Assume we know you period

Unless you’ve followed the first “Do” rule below, we don’t remember you. You are one of a thousand faces for us, and when you point at an empty glass or a beer bottle that’s invariably facing away from us, your attempt at a shortcut backfires. Tell us what you want.

Apologize for sucking

Don’t apologize for not tipping. Acknowledging that you suck is not the same as not sucking. Oh, and don’t say “I’ll get ya next time.” We know all about you.

Assume soft drinks are free

Are they free at McDonald’s? Are they free at Wal-Mart? Are they free anywhere? I blame M.A.D.D. for this myth.

Put pennies and nickels in the tip jar

We don’t want that crap in our pockets any more than you do. We don’t have anything smaller than quarters. Have you ever ordered a drink that cost $3.17?

Be “The Microbrew Aficionado”

Usually a pseudo-hippy who can’t tip a quarter but can’t bring himself to drink “schwag,” and who has to sample some new berry-wheat-harvest-ale that he heard about at Burning Man. “Do you have the new Vernal-Equinox Special Welcome-Fest?” “Does Anyone?” Here’s your Newcastle. Go.

Be “The Daddy Warbucks”

Dressed in classic day-trader wear, this loud, boisterous guy smokes cigars and orders Martinis and generally exudes an air of money. Until the tip. We hate you.

Be a “Whiney Baby”

Under no circumstances should you ever whine to a bartender when asked to see your ID. Our jobs depend on them, and when we spot a fake/expired ID, don’t argue; we’ve seen and heard it all a million times before, and it will get you absolutely nowhere. If you “don’t have one” or “forgot it,” forget it; you don’t belong out on the town in the first place. That’s the law, plain and simple. If we don’t have the law, the terrorists win. You don’t want the terrorists to win, do you? Bring your ID. Remember Rule #1, from a minute ago?

DO’S

Tip

Tip heavy right off the bat, and you’re the first person we aim for every time you come up to the bar. Did you get that? Go back and read it again. The word will spread to the other bartenders and you’ll be treated like a prince. It will pay off in better drinks and the occasional free one.

Be patient

All you really need to do to get waited on is make eye contact. We see you, and we’ll get to you before the guy right next to you waving money and whistling. Remember, this isn’t insulin we’re passing out here. If you really need the drink that bad, you’ve got a problem to address, Jack. The meek shall inherit the bar.

Be an attractive female

As in life, this goes far.

If this comes across as a little petty, remember: bartenders are a jaded lot.

I have to admit after being abroad for a while and looking young AF although being well over 21 the “I forgot my ID whine” has gotten me out of a jam on more than one occasion. When the drinking age is 18 and rarely enforced elsewhere in the world, you stop finding the need to carry it along. My friend calls this a “first-world problem”. I get it.

Damian Junior Gong Marley, Stoney Hill and High Times

in Reggae News by
High Times also had me daydreaming of so many beautiful strains that at the time I had not yet had the chance to experience….It is now an honor to be a part of the High Times legacy that I’ve been a fan of for so many years. Damian “Junior Gong” Marley confirmed that his company has acquired 60 percent interest in Trans-High Corp. The new company will operate as High Times Holding Company.

more details from Nbc.com

 

“It’s an exciting day,” said Adam Levin, the company’s new CEO. “We have really the largest brand in cannabis, really the trusted brand, that we’ve been able to acquire at a time when obviously legalization trends are burgeoning and the industry as a whole is exploding.”

With marijuana legal in some form in 26 states and the District of Columbia, Levin and his partners believe it’s the perfect time to acquire the company with a mainstream brand name and a colorful reputation.

While many magazines have struggled in recent years, High Times says it has retained a loyal print subscriber base of more than 200,000 with millions more following it online. “We’re the Wine Aficionado of the cannabis industry,” he said. source: nbc.com

Kabaka drops Can’t Breath from New Album Contraband

in Reggae News by

“Contraband the album speaks about the message in the music and how the powers [that be] doesn’t want the people to hear this message and therefore see it as forbidden. I see myself as a mouthpiece for the people, here to deliver this message,” he told Splash.

Kabaka is preparing to depart for their summer tour and concert dates in Europe and North America. This kicks off in Europe on June 16 and will be highlighted by his appearance on Summerjam in Cologne, Germany, which also features Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, Protoje, and American hip hop act Nas. He then returns to Jamaica for his second appearance on Reggae Sumfest on July 22, and then it’s on to the North American leg with dates in the United States and Canada.

Trump, Climate, Paris made simple.

in World by

The idea of the Paris climate accord was that every country, rich and poor, would set goals to curb carbon emissions in an effort to avert the worst effects of climate change.

Trump says he will cut payments to United Nation climate programs.

source:NYTimes.com

This graphic by Jasmine C. Lee and Adam Pearce is extremely helpful in visualizing these seemingly complex concepts even further.

Carbon Emissions in 2030

The red line shows what will happen to carbon emissions without the Paris agreement: up, up, up. The United States’ contribution to the emissions goal was substantial. But other countries have pledged to continue their programs with or without American participation. NYtimes.com

What can you do:

Go Veggie. Or at least Pesce (pescatarian).

According to the New York Times most carbon emissions involving food come from production and not transportation as one might initially assume. Red meat and dairy facilities have more intensive processes than chicken and fish. Decreasing your amount of meat intake will in effect reduce your carbon footprint without having an effect on your lifestyle.

Surprisingly flying instead of long roadtrips is an easy and more comfortable option in the case of carbon emissions.

Take public transport. With the rise of uber and lyft theres often no reason to add your car to the rush hour traffic mix. Again an easy way to do your part without doing too much.

Eat everything before making another trip to the market. If you haven’t finished what you have from your last trip, try and be creative. More trips to the market equal more mass, trash and higher chance of wastage.

Replace your gas guzzler for a more efficient option. Your pockets will thank you.

Buy Less Waste Less. Buy what you will appreciate longer than a night. We ladies generally shop for a night or weekend and then push fits to the back of the closet. Buy high quality products and merchandise that will stand the test of time and trends.
