Jamaican Senate Says Yes To Weed Smoking Day

Rumors are that Jamaican Senate passed a bill to decriminalize marijuana for medical, religious and scientific purposes. The bill, which would amend the country’s Dangerous Drugs Act, would reduce possession of two ounces or less of marijuana for personal use to a ticketable offense, rather than a criminal one. Cultivation of up to five plants would be permitted. Under current Jamaican law, marijuana possession charges can lead to as much as five years in prison and a fine.

Jamaica took one step closer to decriminalizing marijuana and it couldn’t have happened on a more fitting day — the birthday of Jamaican reggae superstar Bob Marley, whose public embrace of cannabis made him nearly synonymous with the culture of the plant.

Registered health professionals would also be able to prescribe cannabis for various ailments, and accredited institutions could conduct scientific research with the plant. For the first time, Rastafarians — members of a spiritual movement founded on the island that sees cannabis use as a sacrament — would be able to legally smoke the substance for religious purposes.

“The objective is to provide a more enlightened approach to dealing with possession of small quantities and smoking, while still meeting the ends of justice,” wrote Jamaican Minister of Justice Mark Goldberg when he announced the measure last year. “The proposed changes represent an approach which will enure to the benefit of the persons concerned and the society as a whole, and reduce the burdens on the court system.”

The Untold Truth Of Chanel West Coast

 


West Coast is known from both MTV's Fantasy Factory with Rob Dyrdek, which features a crew of quirky real-life (if arguably exaggerated) characters, and Ridiculousness, a show that takes on (and takes down) "the most hysterical and absurd viral videos out there," InTouch notes that "the bubbly blonde" is also famous for being "the clapback queen of Instagram and one to watch in the music industry" thanks to her ongoing efforts aimed at establishing herself as a rapper.


Along the way, she's also embraced her fair share of unexpected opportunities and, in turn, earned countless fans and indulged in an enviable social media-worthy lifestyle. However, while her work has her spending plenty of time in the spotlight and her followers probably think that they know everything about the star, there's plenty of deep track's in the burgeoning artist's life that may surprise you when it comes to the ever-intriguing and always-captivating Chanel West Coast


If you think Chanel West Coast has a memorable moniker, then you're proving that the star was right when she opted to ditch her real name for something more worthy of a successful celebrity. She told MTV in 2015, "It's funny, because growing up I knew I wanted to do music. And Britney Spears — that sounds catchy. Christina Aguilera — that sounds catchy. My real, full name is Chelsea Chanel Dudley. In my opinion, Chelsea Dudley does not sound like a rapper. So I was like, 'You know what? I'ma drop both of those names and just go by Chanel."

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto officially published a bill that makes medical marijuana available and legal in Mexico. The historic change in policy for this critical Latin American nation marks another country that has welcomed cannabis as an important tool for healing the sick.

On Friday, April 28, Mexico’s lower house in parliament overwhelmingly passed the bill with a 374-7 vote. It was then up to the leader of the country to officially sign and turn it into law, which the President finally executed today.

The recent passing of the bill in parliament was publicly endorsed by Mexico’s Secretary of Health, Dr. José Narro Robles, who stated: “I welcome the adoption of the therapeutic use of cannabis in Mexico.”

Matt Elam Arrested

Early Sunday [Feb. 26th] morning, Ravens safety and former first-round draft pick Matt Elam was arrested in Miami. Initially pulled over for reckless driving, Elam's vehicle was searched after suspicion arose of him being under the influence. As it turns out, an array of drugs were recovered from the car. Elam was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis, possession of cannabis with intent to sell or deliver, possession of a controlled substance and one count of reckless driving.

Having panned out as one of the worst first round draft picks in franchise history, Elam was released by the Ravens before the incident, and was scheduled to become a free agent next month. Having already severed ties with the safety, the Ravens released a statement saying: "We are aware of the arrest of Matt Elam... he is not in our plans for the 2017 Ravens."

How Jay-Z created a hip-hop path to luxury

 



This past Monday, rapper Jay-Z unveiled a deal with LVMH to expand his Armand de Brignac champagne globally. The next day, Oatly, the Swedish vegan-milk group in which he has invested, took its first step towards a $10bn initial public offering.


Jay-Z has further tasks to occupy him, apart from his own music. He still heads Roc Nation, a music and sports talent agency that includes Rihanna among its clients. He is also “chief visionary officer” of a special-purpose company backed by Roc Nation that acquired two Californian cannabis groups in November. And so on.


This year is the 25th anniversary of Jay-Z’s first album Reasonable Doubt, released on his own Roc-A-Fella Records label. Some have lasted and some not, but Jay-Z was ahead of his time in business in a way that is only now clear. “Put me anywhere on God’s green Earth, I triple my worth,” he once rapped. The deal with LVMH, under which the world’s leading luxury group has taken 50 per cent of Armand de Brignac — the “Ace of Spades” champagne praised in his lyrics — is proof of that.

Will Jack Dorsey Purchase Tidal?

 


Since purchasing Tidal for $56 million back in 2015, Jay-Z has made the streaming service a big contender in the music industry. But it could be that Jay-Z is considering handing-off a majority stake in the company. The rapper has reportedly been in talks to sell the site to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and his Square Inc. payment company.


As reported by Bloomberg, Square Inc. is looking to “diversify” their assets with the purchase of Tidal. The streaming service hasn’t publicly released their year-end figures since reporting they had 3 million paying customers back in 2016, but Jay-Z’s move to put his music back on Spotify has led some to question the longevity of the platform.

Beyoncé to give $5,000 grants to families facing eviction

 


The “Drunk In Love” singer and her philanthropic organization, BeyGOOD, are awarding $5,000 grants to families or individuals who are facing eviction and/or foreclosure as the housing moratorium is set to end this month.

We also provided mental health support,” read a press release. “We then launched our BeyGOOD small business impact fund and to date, over 250 small businesses have received $10K grants.”


“This holiday season while many are stressed with what they will do next regarding their housing, we are proud to share some GOOD news,” the press release continues. “Beyoncé is giving $5K grants to individuals and families facing foreclosures or evictions.”
