Solar Therapeutics is being sued for copyright infringement, false advertising, and misappropriation of Sacha Baron Cohen’s right of publicity after using a picture of Borat giving the thumbs up on a Massachusetts interstate billboard while exclaiming, “It’s Nice!” Cohen’s attorney claims he has never used cannabis in his life, creating Ali G to mock stoner culture, and would never participate in any corporate brand deal because it would undermine his credibility as an actor and social activist. The billboard was taken down after the brand received a cease-and-desist letter but Cohen is still seeking statutory damages, actual damages, punitive damages, and disgorgement of profits attributable to the billboard.

BEHIND THE CURTAIN
33 kilograms of ganja were seized by Nagpur cops out of a train station toilet stall. That’s 72.75 pounds, bowlers! Police found it while making the rounds with their bomb-sniffing dogs.
Sha’Carri Richardson will not be competing in the Olympics because of a THC positive drug test. She is serving a one-month suspension.

Hours before it was scheduled for a House floor vote, Delaware adult use bill, House Bill 150, was removed from the agenda. The bill’s primary sponsor, Representative Ed Osienski, said the vote was cancelled because they did not have the 3/4 (31) votes necessary to pass it with its proposed social equity fund. Had they removed the fund, they would only need a 3/5 majority. Delaware’s earliest opportunity for legalization is January 2022. In 2015, a decriminalization bill passed and another bill expanded it to minors in 2019, but folks are still being arrested and locked up when caught with more than an ounce.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed House Bill 1024 into law, increasing the amount of pot medical patients can legally possess from a 30-day supply to 90. They may also use telehealth and curbside pickup. Caregivers are no longer restricted to the amount of patients they can care for and more eligible conditions have been added: cancer remission therapy and central nervous system-related neuropathy.
As of July 1st, South Dakota patients will no longer be arrested for possessing three ounces or less of cannabis…as long as they alert the law enforcement officer of their condition and provide documentation from a doctor since they won’t be able to get a card until this fall. The state’s Department of Health shared its preliminary list of conditions covered by the medical program, which include AIDS/HIV, ALS, MS, cancer, Crohn’s, epilepsy, glaucoma, and PTSD as well as any “debilitating medical condition” which was the language voters passed in 2020. The secretary of health says a process will be available for South Dakotans to petition to add more conditions in the future.
Last Wednesday, a North Carolina Senate committee voted for the first medical marijuana proposal in the state’s history with overwhelming support. It has two more committee hearings before going to the Senate floor for a vote.

Two brothers from Lansing, Illinois were held in jail for 33 days in Florida, the max amount of days someone can be held in Florida without any charges. Because of the arrest, one of the brothers lost his college athletic scholarship.
The New York Times launched the climate change concept 33 years ago with the article “Global Warming Has Begun…” after a NASA scientist testified the greenhouse effect had been detected. Coincidentally, June 25th was the 33rd anniversary of the 1988 Yellowstone National Park fires.
33 train cars derailed in Eastern Pennsylvania. Luckily, no one was injured and there were no hazardous spills.

According to compound annual growth rate, the in vitro fertilization market will be worth $33 billion by 2028.
If you live in New Mexico and are over the age of 21, you can AS OF TODAY, (Tokin’ Tuesday, June 29, 2021) you may now possess up to two ounces of nug, 16 grams of extracts, 800 milligrams of edibles and start growing your own weed — no more than 6 mature and 6 immature plants per person or 12 and 12 in a household — thanks to NM’s Cannabis Regulation Act. New Mexicans will still have to wait until April 1, 2022 to buy and sell weed from a dispensary, however.
Another happening today on this tasty Tuesday was the Mexican Supreme Court mandating the Health Department to begin issuing permits to citizens older than 18 who wish to grow or possess personal use amounts of weed, though commercial activities remain illegal. In 2009, Mexico decriminalized possession under 5 grams and in 2018, the Court determined federal prohibition was unconstitutional, giving lawmakers until April 30th to enact legislation to regulate adult use. Unfortunately, House and Senate lawmakers did not agree on a plan before the deadline.
Yesterday (Monday, June 28, 2021), the Supreme Court decided not to hear Standing Akimbo, a Denver-based medical marijuana dispensary’s, challenge against Internal Revenue Code Section 280E which prohibits tax deductions for the “trafficking of Controlled Substances.” After the decision, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in his legal opinion that, “A prohibition on intrastate use or cultivation of marijuana may no longer be necessary or proper to support the Federal Government’s piecemeal approach.”
Last Thursday,Governor Jared Polis signed House Bill 21-1317 into law, requiring the Colorado School of Public Health (made up of University of Colorado, Colorado State University, and the University of Northern Colorado) to “do a systematic review of the scientific research related to the possible physical and mental health effects of high-potency THC marijuana and concentrates” before creating a scientific review council to study the findings and make recommendations to lawmakers. After this recommendation is made, the Colorado School of Public Health will produce a public education campaign about the effects of high-potency THC on mental health and the developing brain.
Citizens limiting patients to 8 grams of concentrates per purchase, down from the previous 40 gram limit, and capping patients aged 18 to 20 to 2 grams per purchase. Each transaction is logged and seed-to-sale traceability will prevent patients from purchasing more at another dispensary on the same day. Manufacturers now must include warnings on concentrate packages as well as serving size guidance. More rules were created for patients between the ages of 18 and 20 such as acquiring two doctor recommendations who conduct more thorough consultations. All patients will have their mental health history assessed before recommendations are provided now. Of course, there is still good reason for folks to want to become a registered medical patient in Colorado: the excise tax for card-carrying patients is 2.9% while everyone else pays 15%.
As you may recall from previous episodes of Bowl After Bowl, 54% of South Dakotans voted in favor of both recreational and medical marijuana initiatives on their November 2020 ballot. Governor Kristi Noem however opposed the will of the people and facilitated litigation in February 2021 to strike Amendment A (the recreational initiative) down as unconstitutional. The Judge of the state’s Sixth Judicial Circuit Court ruled the measure violates state requirements for ballot measures to cover only one topic and revises rather than amends the state Constitution, which should not permit it to move forward.
Last Friday, State Court Administrator Greg Sattizahn announced that the South Dakota Supreme Court will not issue a ruling on Amendment A before the proposed July 1st deadline. Medical cannabis, however, becomes legal in South Dakota as of July 1st, but state officials won’t be ready to distribute medical cards until the fall.
Eight strains were recalled by the Arizona Department of Health Services due to possible salmonella and aspergillus (mold) contamination. Please keep the poo poo germs off of the good good.
In 2014, Washington, D.C. legalized possession and home cultivation under a voter initiative, but Congress used a budget rider to prevent the local government from using its resources to create a transparent, licensed commercial sales program. Under the proposed Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Services and General Government spending bill, which includes provisions relating to the District of Columbia’s budget, the House Appropriations Committee omitted the rider and added language to create limited protections for banking institutions providing services to state-licensed cannabusinesses. However, this rider has been excluded two years in a row and wound up being added back into the final package.
FIRST TIME I EVER #FTIE
Bowlers called in to tell us about the first time they ever lied to their parents, and we want to hear from YOU before next Tokin’ Tuesday about the first time YOU ever came in a room.
Fuck it, Dude. Let’s go bowling. #FDLGB
Remember the 10 record-breaking babies born in South Africa we mentioned in Bowl After Bowl Episode 86: Looking at Tom Thumb? Turns out, the South African woman was lying and was not even pregnant. She was taken in for psychiatric evaluation under which the paper that originally broke the story doubled down and claimed the government was trying to cover up medical negligence by holding her. The editor has since written an apology.
A man arrested in Mexico was believed to be a runaway fugitive wanted for killing a husband and wife while drunk driving. Turns out, he gave a fake name but had warrants out for his arrest in Arkansas and Missouri.

As previously mentioned on Bowl After Bowl Episode 69: Some Holy Somebody, FBI agents went digging for a fabled cache of gold in Pennsylvania. Of course, the FBI never publicly explained why they went treasure hunting other than excavating “what evidence suggested may have been a cultural heritage site.” According to court documents unsealed last Thursday (June 24, 2021), an agent applied for a federal warrant in 2018 to seize the gold, which he claims was one or more tons stolen during the Civil War. He applied for the seizure warrant to avoid seeking permission from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to excavate the site which he believed would then claim the gold for the state and cause a costly legal battle. The agent also revealed that in 2013, a legislative staffer acting on behalf of others in state government offered Finders Keepers USA, a father-son duo of treasure hunters, a state permit to dig in return for three gold bars or 10% of the findings. No one has been charged in connection with the case and federal prosecutors say the case is closed.
A customer at a New Hampshire restaurant told his bartender, “Don’t spend it all in one place,” prompting her to look at the check and notice a $16,000 tip. The tip was left on June 12th but the restaurant owner didn’t share the story until June 21 because he wanted to see if the payment would actually go through first. Eight bartenders split the tip.
After failing to comply with multiple stop-work orders along with an order to remove features around her Flintstones-themed house in the San Francisco suburbs of Hillsborough, the town took owner Florence Fang to court. But she countersued and reached a settlement, agreeing to apply for building permits while the town reviews and approves a survey of landscaping improvements. She also received $125,000 from the town to drop the case.
Living With the Land is a slow-moving boat ride at Disney World that takes visitors through the amusement park’s greenhouses. It’s also the second longest of all the attractions. This lady must have been bored becauseshe jumped off and on the boat four times and tried to steal a cucumber.

The test was incapable of detecting viruses.
WHOupdated its COVID-1984 jab advice page to say children are not a high priority.
Connecticut legalized recreational weed after holding their special session. This law limits adults to possession 1.5 ounces and does not allow homegrow until 2023. However, if you are a medical card carrying patient, you can now grow a total of 6 plants (3 “mature,” 3 “immature”). Offenses dealing with up to 4 ounces will be automatically expunged. A 30% THC cap was placed on flower and 60% on concentrates.
Rhode Island’s Senate advanced one of the three recreational bills TODAY on this Tokin’ Tuesday after it advanced out of the Judiciary Committee last week. Their legislative session ends June 30th but a special session could be called to push it through, as we’ve seen with other states like Connecticut and New Mexico (as discussed on Episode 74: Storm’s a-Brewin’.)
Afederal judge in Missouri ruled against the Show-Me State’s residency requirement in favor of a Pennsylvania investor who sued the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the state’s medical cannabis regulators, for violating the commerce clause of the Constitution. The residency rule required businesses be at least 51% owned by state residents, which were defined as anyone living in Missouri for at least one year. Colorado, Maine, and Oregon have all nixed their residency requirements but a federal judge in Oklahoma just threw out a lawsuit against theirs (which was discussed on Bowl After Bowl Episode 86: Looking at Tom Thumb.)
In Detroit, a judge suspended the ordinance giving preference to long-term residents applying for recreational business licenses, granting an injunction last Thursday that will temporarily halt the processing of applications. The requirements included living in the city 10 to 14 of the past 30 years on top of having previous marijuana convictions or a parent with a record.
Four cannabusinesses in New Jersey were issued cease-and-desist letters from the state Attorney General and Division of Consumer Affairs to stop offering “gifts” to purchasing customers to skirt the state’s one-ounce purchase limit laws. They are now under investigation for violating the state’s Consumer Fraud Act because of misrepresentation. Customers pay higher prices on other items to receive a “gift,” which makes it not a gift at all.
Two businessmen were given 30- and 15-month prison sentences for disguising $150 million in weed-related transactions for California delivery business Eaze as fake websites and dummy corporations between 2016 and 2019 so banks would process them. These sentences were far below what federal prosecutors recommended to the judge, which included life imprisonment for one and nearly 25 years for the other. Former Eaze CEO James Patterson plead guilty to a count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud in the case but was not charged or found at fault during the investigation.

Lucky enough, another hiker found it on the trail and he got it back after they were connected on Facebag.
After being given a pill to speed up labor, a Denver mom was told an emergency C-section would be required because of a “sudden movement” the baby made leaving nurses unable to find her heartbeat. As if that wasn’t traumatic enough,their daughter emerged with a massive cut on her face requiring 13 stitches. Medical staff said her face was close to the placenta wall. In a study of 37,000 C-sections, skin lacerations occurred 0.7% of the time.

A visitor to Boston’s New England Aquarium was allowed to enter using a ticket that sat in her wallet for almost four decades. Known as a “late gate” ticket, it was a free make-up visit to guests who arrived too late in the day to get the full aquarium experience. 25 years ago, the aquarium stopped issuing these tickets.
And if you disguise a nature camera as a piece of bark, a woodpecker just might destroy it.

TOP THREE 33
Rest in Peace, Joya. Born in 1988 at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, this 33-year-old greater one-horned rhino (also known as the Indian Rhino) was the oldest male in the Species Survival Plan of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Joya moved to Salina, Kansas’ Rolling Hills Zoo in 1995 where he had been monitored by veterinarian staff for age-related issues for the past few months.
Add another tally to the Clinton Body Count. This week, ABC 33/40 reporter Christopher Sign suicided. He broke the secret tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in 2016, then published a book about it. After its release in February 2020, he told Fox & Friends his family received death threats which drove him out of Phoenix, Arizona back to Birmingham, Alabama — to Channel 33.
When asked about chain of custody documents for absentee ballots deposited into drop boxes for the November 3, 2020 election, a Fulton County election official admitted to The Georgia Star News “a few forms are missing” and “some procedural paperwork may have been misplaced.” Coincidentally, Georgia is missing chain of custody documents for about 333,000 absentee ballots out of an estimated 600,000 which is pretty suspicious considering Biden only “won” by 12,000 votes in the Peach State.
Lastly, neighbors called for a wellness check on a Glendora, California home after smelling a strong odor coming from it. Law enforcement found 33 cats — 7 dead and 2 that had to be euthanized — and one dog living in filthy conditions.
The CDC updated their travel guidance, moving 33 countries to their lowest risk category which is deemed safe for travel for anyone who got a coof shot.
In England, a 33-year-old music teacher plead guilty to faking a COVID ‘Fit to Fly’ certificate to travel to Egypt by altering the date on a negative ‘rona test PDF from February. An Egyptian airline worker spotted a missing digit on the certificate. He was found guilty of forgery and counterfeit offense of making a false instrument but was granted bail and is leaving the country ahead of his hearing, telling the judge he will be back in time for it and now has an up-to-date negative test certificate.
Also, the symptoms for this scary new Delta variant are headaches, coughs, and sneezing…like a cold.
In 2007, Robert Franklin tossed a pound of weed out of his car during a traffic stop in Saline County, Missouri and received a 22-year prison sentence. But after serving more than a decade in prison, he has become the first 420POW to have his case commuted by Governor Mike Parson. Jeff Mizanskey was the last time weed-related POW freed by Governor Jay Nixon in 2015.
Joints for Jabs launched Monday in Washington state, but dispensary owners aren’t participating. Unlike other jab freebies which require citizens to simply flash their poked papers to claim their prize, Joints for Jabs requires pot shops to set up a vaccine clinic inside so only those with a fresh band-aid can claim their jay. Many don’t have the space to set up a clinic inside, and healthcare providers are concerned about setting up shop in a place that distributes illegal drugs since that could jeopardize their federal funding. Since the program expires July 12, citizens planning to get poked in the pot shop might not be able to get their second shot in time. Participating pot shops will be able to cash in on a tax break for product they give away unlike alcohol retailers, but that doesn’t help much when they are still unfairly facing Section 180E.
Last Tokin’ Tuesday, the pain management committee for the NFL and NFL Players Association announced it will provide $1 million in funding for research into pain management with cannabis and cannabinoids. Five grants are expected to be awarded around Thanksgiving.
Arkansas’ medical sales exceeded $330 million since the market launched in 2019 and last month, May 2021, Maine hit a new record with $5.4 million in recreational sales.
The Montana group opposing the 2020 voter-approved recreational initiative has dropped its lawsuit since Governor Greg Gianforte signed House Bill 701 into law, amending the legalization law voters passed. The lawsuit claimed the initiative was unconstitutional for earmarking a portion of tax revenues from federally illegal marijuana sales, contending only the legislature can determine how tax revenue is spent.
Tomorrow, June 16, 2021 at 10 AM, the Connecticut legislature will hold a special session to determine the fate of the recreational weed bill mentioned previously on Bowl After Bowl. Rhode Island will have to wait a little longer for a recreational market, as the backers of three adult-use bills failed to compromise and likely won’t before the end of the legislative session the last week of June.
Today, Representatives Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) and Cori Bush (D-MO) unveiled the Drug Policy Reform Act (DPRA) to end criminal penalties for drug possession federally and incentivize state and local governments to adopt decriminalization policies by limiting their eligibility to receive funds if they don’t. The bill also proposes moving regulatory power from the Attorney General to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, record expungement and resentencing, “reinvesting in alternative health-centered approaches,” prohibiting drug tests for individuals to receive federal benefits, prohibiting the use of civil asset forfeiture related to personal drug possession cases, and establishing a Commission on Substance Use, Health and Safety to determine benchmark amounts for drug possession and publish a report including recommendations for preventing the prosecution of individuals processing, distributing, or dispensing personal use quantities.
In 2018, Tampa-based Florigrown sued the state over its licensing process which resulted in three of the 22 licensed operators controlling two-thirds of the market. Six license holders account for 90% of sales. They hoped the state would provide standalone licenses for small businesses and break up the vertical scheme, but the Supreme Court just ruled against them in a 6-1 decision saying the Florida Legislature met its constitutional obligations in enacting a limited-license vertical structure. With the lawsuit over, the state’s licensing freeze comes to an end. It is likely state regulators will issue 15 new vertical licenses over the next six months.
The Ohio State Medical Board added Huntington’s disease, spasticity or severe muscle spasms, and terminal illness as qualifying conditions for medical weed. Earlier in the year, the board granted separate requests to add arthritis, chronic migraines, and complex regional pain syndrome but rejected petitions to include autism spectrum disorder and restless leg syndrome.
In Colorado, 21 individuals were arrested in connection to a black market marijuana and money laundering scheme. They are accused of growing millions of dollars worth of pot across metro Denver and funneling their profits to China through social media apps. The investigation began in August 2020 and investigators have since seized thousands of plants, hundreds of pounds of packaged pot, and about $1 million. Charges range from racketeering and conspiracy to drug cultivation, distribution, and money laundering. Federal investigators found the money cycled from the US to China to Central and South America, then back to the US. Two individuals were allegedly involved in the illegal Oklahoma grow op referenced in Bowl After Bowl Episode 80: I Shitted My Priorities.
Yesterday (Monday, June 14, 2021), the California legislature approved a $100-million plan to strengthen their legal industry which continues to struggle in competition with the emerald market five years after voters approved recreational sales. Grants will be provided to cities and counties to help businesses transition from provisional to regular licenses. It’s a complicated process to get a permanent, annually-renewed license from a temporary one, requiring high costs and developing a plan to reduce the harms of the industry’s negative environmental impacts.
Speaking of negative impacts, Sacramento is being sued by a number of unidentified weed businesses for establishing “Neighborhood Responsibility Plan” fees equal to 1% of gross revenue on top of a 4% business operations tax on gross receipts — even though the city failed to identify a single negative impact from cannabiz operations.
After receiving eight complaints about a growing operation’s odor March 2019, Santa Barbara County filed the jurisdiction’s first nuisance lawsuit against Island View Ranch and Island Breeze Farms. The lawsuit also claims Island Breeze hasn’t “diligently pursued” obtaining the county and state business licenses to operate and therefore is illegally growing and processing weed.
