Here’s my review for Dandlco.com’s Cyclone Bubbler!
I am SO sorry for the hiatus. A lot has been going on in my world and so, thankfully I am back with a review of a piece I’ve been meaning to post a video for for a while. This is Dandlco.com’s Cyclone Bubbler – it’s a fantastic little bubbler with cyclone spinning action. I, myself, can’t seem to get it most of the time, but I’ve seen the cyclone action a few times. It’s all about getting the right water level and the right pull, but it is something I can definitely see being a special piece because it rips hard. Once you get used to it and can master it, you’re golden. And even if you can’t master it, it’s, shall we say, effective.
Dandlco.com also has a bunch of other fantastic pieces for a low price with great packages to customize your rig/bong. Use discount code “weedandbombs” for extra savings on your purchase!

This is an older video from late last year (2012) highlighting the fight that Chris Williams, a medical marijuana grower in Montana, has been battling. At the time this documentary was made, Chris Williams was facing life in prison. As of today, he has been sentenced to 5 years in prison. Part of the atrocity of this case is that a federal judge barred Williams from using his medical marijuana defense.
Marylanders caught with marijuana may soon face a small fine instead of time behind bars.
The Maryland Senate voted in favor of a bill to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana on Tuesday.
On a bipartisan vote of 30-16, the Senate approved legislation that makes possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana a civil offense, subject to the maximum penalty of a $100 fine, according to the Capital Gazette. Laws currently on the books for a such a possession invokes a maximum penalty of $500 and 90 days in prison.
If the bill becomes law, Maryland would join a growing number of states that are enacting more lax marijuana laws, including Colorado and Washington state, where voters chose to legalize marijuana on ballot referendums in 2012.
The sponsor of the bill, State Sen. Robert A. Zirkin (D-Baltimore County), said that the law was needed in order to avoid overspending on charging individuals with possession of small amounts of marijuana.
“It is a tremendous waste of resources,” Zirkin said, according to the Baltimore Sun.
According to State Sen. Allan Kittleman (R-Howard and Carroll), a co-sponsor of the bill, police made around “47,000 arrests” related to marijuana possession in the state last year.

If you elect Mitt Romney as president, you will not see legalized medical marijuana. His own words. Scientific evidence supports medical marijuana usage for greater value of life, greater therapeutic and medicinal benefit, as well as an absence of a “gateway” possibility. I find it amazing (and yet, not surprising) that Mitt would ignore the very recent studies that concluded that it is ALCOHOL that is the gateway drug, not cannabis – and spout lies to his constituents. Then again, we’re talking about rich politicians. Logic plays no role in what they do.
Thanks to TYT for posting this video — From the video description:
“In what could be a turning point in the city’s seemingly unending battle to regulate the distribution of medical marijuana, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to ban all pot dispensaries, while also opening the door to possibly let some remain. Under the ban, all of the 762 dispensaries registered in the city will be sent letters ordering them to shut down immediately. Those that don’t comply may face legal action from the city…”.* Is this connected to the federal crackdown from the Obama Administration? Cenk Uygur, Douglas Caballero, and Cara Santa Maria break it down on The Young Turks.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California appeals court has struck down Los Angeles County’s ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.
The 4th District Court of Appeal ruled Monday that because the state’s medical marijuana laws authorize cooperatives and collectives to grow, store and distribute pot, a lower court judge erred when she cited the 2010 ban in granting the county an injunction against the Alternative Medicinal Cannabis Collective last year.
However, the decision does not mean the coast is clear for the Covina dispensary. The Court of Appeal says even though L.A. County can’t outlaw pot shops completely, local lawmakers still can limit where they locate require them to obtain operating permits and business licenses.
Federal prosecutors also have cracked down by moving to seize the building that houses Alternative Medicinal Cannabis.

Check out this video by The Young Turks featuring an interview with Mitt Romney, in which he says “medical marijuana” is not an important issue and proceeds to exhibit his own ignorance about the cancer-curing miracle plant. WE NEED TO EDUCATE THESE PEOPLE!
Honestly, I can’t stand Jay Leno. I love Conan and will stick by him forever. But that’s not the point. Joe Rogan AND Ron Paul on the same show! As the Obama administration continues to mess with safe access of cannabis for medical patients, and continues to ignore cannabis’ medical benefits and keep it as a Schedule I narcotic – I’m starting to look a little more to Ron Paul to see what he can do for the movement to legalize this miraculous plant! This video is a little lengthy and there’s a little commentary by the uploader in the beginning, but it is well worth watching.
