TOP THREE 33
In a 33-year first, a single console swept Japan’s Game Sales Charts which were made up entirely of Nintendo Switch games in Famitsu Weekly, Japan’s most popular video game publication, during the first week of August. The last time this happened was the Famicom, Nintendo’s first iteration of what would become the NES, in 1988.
Cannabis tragedy as man, 33, dies in fall after taking drug while celebrating his birthday — except it’s the one-year anniversary of his death which his nurse girlfriend eulogized on social media, and England just has to keep the reefer madness going. This dude was a nurse who served as a medic in Afghanistan.
For his birthday, he climbed Mount Snowdon, then met his girlfriend, close friends, and family at a restaurant where “several members of the birthday party took some ‘edible’ — chocolate infused with cannabis,” before meeting at his friend’s place. His girlfriend notes he was acting erratic, out of character and seemed to be rushing home. When they got there, he paced with a look of terror in his eyes — although the coroner was leading the witness with that question, asking the girlfriend if he had a look of terror in his eyes.
Then, she says he started talking to people who weren’t there, so she decided to leave and called his cousin. But just a few minutes later, he fell. It doesn’t stay what story he fell from, but his head injuries were too severe to operate on. The coroner says he was suffering from “a psychotic or delusional episode” from cannabis consumption.
State police charge juvenile with desecrating 33 gravestones. A 12-year-old from Theresa, New York caused $3,726 in damages at Oakwood Cemetery but A. Cozzi Monuments repaired them for free in April. The tween has been charged with 1st degree cemetery desecration and 2nd degree criminal mischief, which are both felonies, and their case will be handled in Family Court.
BONUS: Thanks to Sir OMA for sharing this story about a 33-year-old man found dead in an apartment at 3:30 PM Monday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after a five-hour standoff with police. He named himself as a person of interest earlier in the day for shooting two women whose conditions are unknown. After hearing what sounded like a gunshot, police entered the apartment with a tactical robot and found the man dead.
CAN’T STOP THE COOFIN’
33 positive tests in Dillingham (Alaska)
Dad, 33, has different perspective on COVID-19 after near-death experience. What better way to push the experimental jab than with more fear porn?
Sir OMA sent us this story about a 33-year-old mom removed from an Omaha public elementary school for not wearing a mask and asking staff not to force her son to wear a mask. She was stopped by a security guard when she tried to go into the school to retrieve her son after someone forced him to put a mask on.
FREE THE WEED
Former Adelanto Mayor, Rich Kerr, was arrested by the FBI last Friday for accepting close to $60,000 in bribes in exchange for favorable decisions concerning commercial cannabis through his city council role. Three years ago, FBI agents detained him during a raid on his home amid a public corruption probe. He was arraigned last Friday and entered not guilty pleas. The kickbacks were disguised as gifts, donations to charities and campaigns, and advance payments for the proceeds of a planned litigation associated with a motorcycle accident Kerr sustained during a 2017 promotional gimmick for the Adelanto Grand Prix where he rode a motorcycle into the desert and crashed it within 15 seconds.
Secret recordings from a 2016 conversation with the FBI pretending to be a real estate company revealed Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers’ husband, J.T. Burnette of Tennessee, bragged about how his political connections allowed them to obtain one of the first vertically-integrated licenses for medical weed in Florida. Trulieve is one of the biggest medical companies in the US with operations in 11 states, and Burnette is on trial for racketeering, extortion, fraud, and making false statements.
Starting September 1st, cannabis retailers in Alaska will be able to double the amount of THC per serving in edibles from 5 to 10 milligrams.
For the first time in 11 years, Maine is accepting applications for medical dispensaries. There is no longer a cap on business licenses, but there are only five medical dispensaries operating after three of the eight total converted to recreational shops. The application fee is $5,000 and registered caregivers can now convert their registration type to that of a dispensary because dispensaries are allowed to grow an unlimited amount of plants.
Also in Maine this week, a judge ruled that the state’s residency requirement is unconstitutional, so out-of-state companies will now be able to operate medical dispensaries in the state. Missouri’s federal judge also recently shot down the state’s residency requirement while Oklahoma did the opposite.
House Bill 3000, which passed in July, now allows Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission and the Department of Agriculture to inspect licensed hemp fields across the state to make sure growers aren’t cultivating marijuana. Inspectors will take samples and send them to labs for THC levels, but 31 operations have refused to let the regulators access their site so far.
No new adult-use retail licenses will be awarded in Illinois until a lawsuit Wah Group is resolved, which alleges the state requires veteran-owned businesses to achieve a perfect score to qualify for the social equity lotteries currently underway.
Wisconsin lawmakers announced a full legalization bill last Tokin’ Tuesday which would tax weed similar to alcohol and allow homegrow.

FIRST TIME I EVER…
This week, bowlers called in to tell us about the first time they ever got behind the wheel of a car. Next week, we want to hear about the first time YOU ever felt an electric shock.
FUCK IT, DUDE. LET’S GO BOWLING.
A Florida woman was arrested after showing tiddies and masturbating during a virtual visit with an inmate last week in the visitation building. She was charged with exposure of sexual organs within a public place and violation of probation or community control.
Two teens seriously injured by lightning that struck at least 7 at Orchard Beach in the Bronx
Handcuffed Oklahoma man escapes arrest on stolen ATV, leads police on high-speed chase. He was initially being taken into custody on suspicion of stealing copper wire and catalytic converters when he opened the patrol unit door, escaped into the woods, and stole an ATV from a nearby home.

A 28-year-old man was arrested for giving a child a face tattoo at a McDonald’s in South Carolina, which was filmed and posted to social media by a customer.
While cleaning a picture frame, a North Carolina thrift store employee found a 146-year-old marriage certificate and managed to track down the great granddaughter through Ancestry.com
A Canadian dermatologist in British Columbia bought a rare oil painting that may be worth $20,000 at a thrift store. He paid $96 and intended to use just the frame, then decided to Google the artist’s signature and found it was Wijmer, who was born in the Netherlands in 1870. His most famous painting, Mountain Mist, sold at auction in the US for $200,000. The doctor plans to donate any funds received to the Comox Valley Hospice Society.
A Colorado sheriff’s deputy freed a mother bear who had accidentally trapped herself in a car as her two cubs watched. The door slammed shut behind her when she entered to look for food. Too much damage had been done inside, so he opened the driver’s door to free her but the bear accidentally closed it. On the second attempt, the deputy was able to get her out and ensured she left the neighborhood with her cubs. So don’t leave food in your vehicle.
While removing valuable items from a 115-year-old German Evangelical Church in Seattle, Earthwise Architectural Salvage found a time capsule in the cornerstone which had not been tracked and archived. It contained German literature, Evangelical publications, Ohio newspaper articles written about the Evangelical Association, a bishop’s handwritten letter detailing the founding of the church, and financial information.
Two of Banksy’s newest murals were vandalized days after the artist confirmed he created ten across coastal towns in Norfolk and Suffolk, England. One was caught in the act covering Banksy’s rat sipping a cocktail with white paint. The second perp added teddy bears beneath a claw machine Banksy painted which some believe is a tribute or collab from local artist Emo. Two of Banksy’s murals was removed, one which was spray painted on top of an 1892 mural of the town’s mayor and the other which showed two children flying off an inflatable dingy at the spot where a 3-year-old girl died after an inflatable trampoline burst.
A shitty way to go: three brothers got stuck in a manure pit on their family’s farm, passed out from the fumes, and died of asphyxiation.
