TOP THREE 33

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.

WEED

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.
