CONGRESS Gives In To Medical Marijuana & Ends Federal Ban

"The war on medical marijuana is over," said Bill Piper, a lobbyist with the Drug Policy Alliance to the Los Angeles Times. According to TheAtlantic.com, "The $1 trillion spending bill that passed last week included a provision that blocks the Justice Department from spending any money to enforce a federal ban on growing or selling marijuana in the 32 states that have moved to legalize it for medical use. It marks a huge shift for Congress, which for years had sided with federal prosecutors in their battle with states over the liberalization of drug laws."

Drunk Man Gnawed To Death By A White Tiger! Warning…(Graphic & Disturbing VIDEO) via @lisafordblog

When I was a kid, I had a terrible nightmare that I was trapped in a large cage in front a ferocious tiger with long super sharp teeth. It was the scariest dream I've ever had in my life. The hungry tiger stared at me for a while...I assumed contemplating about which part of me he was going to bite into first. Never in a trillion years did I think that this nightmare would come true for some poor soul. This gruesome and terrifying VIDEO is real live footage of a man by the name of Maqsood, being gnawed to death by an endangered tiger after allegedly jumping into its moat at the New Delhi Zoo in India last week. Onlookers were afraid to help them, in fear that they may be killed too. Maqsood's body remained in the outdoor enclosure two hours after the attack and was dead by the time help reached him. The zoo remained open Tuesday afternoon, though authorities eventually roped off the tiger enclosure.

NEWS REPORTER Quits Live On Air With The F Bomb For Her Love Of Marijuana! (VIDEO)

This video is one of the best clips I've seen on TV in ages! It's freaking hilarious! LOL! KTVA's Charlo Greene quits on live TV after revealing she was the founder of the Alaska Cannabis Club. The delivery was arguably inappropriate, but damn if she didn't look free as a bird and happy as hell! I admire her for the balls it took to do that, and the response of the Anchorwoman was absolutely #Priceless .

TALIB KWELI Argues w/ CNN’S Don Lemon During #Ferguson Interview! (VIDEO) In Case you Missed It! via @lisafordblog

TALIB KWELI delivered one of the most powerful interviews I've seen in the news recently. He stood up to CNN and its anchor, Don Lemon, who appears disconnected with what's really going on on the ground in Ferguson, with his attempt to debunk Kweli's eyewitness account. Kweli schooled them on what he thought was bad media coverage. The death of unarmed teen, Mike Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri, has brought race relations in America back to the forefront in the media and social media alike. In regards to social media coverage, Kweli expressed that it was more important to physically show up to Ferguson versus tweeting and protesting online. In regards to media coverage, he expressed that the quality and accuracy of news outlets such as CNN wasn't up to par. Talib Kweli spoke very truthful when he stated the media depicted protesters as criminals or thugs and omitted the fact that women and children were protesting as well. Lemon tried to interrupt Kweli from speaking which turned into a heated argument and with Kweli almost walking out of the interview. This would have been a disservice because Kweli spoke the truth and didn't care about being politically correct...something most of these news outlets are gulity of.

MIKE BROWN’s Friend Tells His Story!! (VIDEO) #JusticeForMikeBrown via @lisafordblog

I can't write about somebody else's dead child as if I knew him, and as if my words are going to make a difference in the turmoil that MIKE BROWN's family is going through right now. So I'm posting this video, a first hand account, told by his friend, who witnessed Brown being gunned down for no reason by a Police officer. Mike Brown was eighteen years old, walking down a street in Ferguson, Missouri, from his apartment to his grandmother’s, at 2:15 on a bright Saturday afternoon. But a racist cop has an issue with that and killed him.

Black Kid Depicted As A Lap Dog In New “Feed A Child” TV AD (VIDEO) SMH!!!

When I see pictures of starving children in the media, on the internet, etc, with their bones and ribs sticking out, I break down in tears every time. Photos like these devastate me, not only because it shows young children suffering, but it's a reminder of how inexplicable it is that we have these hungry kids and billionaires on the same planet at the same time. There should be enough food in this world to feed everybody. I will never understand this phenomenon, the epidemic of starvation. It's heartbreaking to say the least. To add insult to injury, this clown of a charity organization in South Africa called "Feed A Child" adds racism against these kids into the mix. They put out a video depicting a black child as a lap dog. It shows the little boy being given treats by a white woman as he rests his head on her lap. When he brings her a newspaper in bed, he is given another treat. What type of nonsense is this? Feed SA Director Candice Etberg has reportedly defended the ad, pointing out, "This is a great advert that highlights what is actually going on. The average dog does eat better than most children in this country." But I don't buy that bullsh*t.
