Elon Musk Smokes Weed With Joe Rogan
I have to start with with the Joe Rogan interview with Elon Musk. It was ridiculously cool. We have been talking about Elon Musk quite a bit lately because he sent out a tweet a couple of months back about Tesla possibly no longer being a publicly traded company and that if it went private he thought it would sell at $420 a share. I don’t know about you but I definitely interpreted that with a wink and a nudge and so did a lot of other marijuana enthusiasts. He confirmed he was not high when he sent out the notorious tweet which was a major disappointment, but then the Joe Rogan Experience show happened last week. Elon talked about the challenges of managing a company like Tesla, a lot of his side projects and his thoughts on the dangers of artificial intelligence and how the process to put regulations on tech advancements takes so long. But then, Rogan pulled out a spliff full of weed and tobacco and shared it with Elon. You can check out the whole interview on TNMNews.com, just search for “Elon Musk Smokes Weed With Joe Rogan.” While the cannabis world may have thrown their hands up in victory, nervous investors hit the sell button. But, the stock has been on its way back up and as far as we are concerned, a little weed can be pretty inspiring. Who knows, maybe Elon will wake up tomorrow and have figured out how to teleport us across the universe. That happens to me every morning!
Afroman back in the news again
And now turning to some college news. Let’s see if you know this one, (sing it Christine!)
I was gonna clean my room
Until I got high
I was gonna get up and find the broom
But then I got high
My room is still messed up and I know why
‘Cause I got high
Because I got high
Because I got high
I always thought I missed my calling as a singer, but maybe that’s just because, well you know why. Anyways, the Cannabis Culture Carnival Carnival happened again on Sunday near Colorado State University and Afroman headlined the event. Man, Colorado has always been a cool state but this is another level. While the event is not school sanctioned, they don’t mind mentioning it in the school newspaper. Afroman even lit up while on stage.
New Jersey Stockton University Offering Cannabis Studies Minor
Sticking with college news, universities are really warming up to the world of weed. More and more schools are offering programs where students can take classes about marijuana. Most recently, New Jersey’s Stockton University started offering a minor degree in “Cannabis Studies.” New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy is working hard on trying to legalize recreational marijuana in New Jersey and a vote could happen as early as this month. The way colleges see it, if there is a demand to learn about marijuana and the cannabis industry is going to grow as big as they predict, then people need to be educated on it. Stockton is one of the first schools to offer a full minor degree and it will cost in-state students $5,100 bucks. The minor includes Introduction to Medical Marijuana and Cannabis Law, among other classes and electives.
Why Vaping Weed Is Safer Than Smoking
So we put together an article for you on TNMNews about what the difference between vaping marijuana and smoking marijuana is. You can check out the article, “Why Vaping Weed Is Safer Than Smoking.” In a nutshell, when you burn marijuana by smoking, it breaks down the weed into really small particles, some of which that can be toxic. This is true of anything you smoke though. Vaping involves heating the weed just below combustion so that it releases the cannabinoids (those are things like THC and CBD) but not a lot of the other particles. It is thought to be healthier than smoking, but it also does not smell as much and the vapor dissipates quickly. Vaping can be done on the DL if you know what I mean. To find out more, just go read the article.
