  • Police say Summit County man sold individual fentanyl-laced marijuana

    PARK CITY, Utah (KUTV) — A 25-year-old man from Summit County is facing charges after giving another man fentanyl-laced marijuana after the man suffered an "adverse health reaction."

    Brooks Tyler Glisson faces charges of drug possession and distribution.

    The man admitted to detectives that he purchased the marijuana locally. After testing the marijuana, deputies suspected it was laced with the deadly narcotic Fentanyl, and they immediately notified federal law enforcement partners.

    The man from the Snyderville Basin has been working with investigators, who were able to pinpoint the source of the possibly lethal marijuana's dissemination.

    "Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is highly potent in micro amounts; therefore, it can be lethal if ingested. The Summit County Sheriff’s Office implores Summit County residents to NOT purchase and ingest illegal street drugs. We also ask parents to talk to their children about the dangers of using illegal street drugs. The safety of our community is our number one priority!" Summit County Sheriff's Office released the statement.

  • Portland marijuana production blunder sickened more than a dozen: Here’s how it happened.

    Oregon regulators recalled Select brand THC and CBD drops last September after discovering the manufacturer, Curaleaf, confused those containing psychoactive ingredients with those that did not. Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission.

    A calamitous mix-up at a Portland marijuana bottling plant apparently originated with a single employee who confused two similar buckets with nearly identical identification numbers, according to a state investigative report.

    The report does not specify, though, whether manufacturer Curaleaf had any quality control measures in place to catch such mistakes, and state investigators withheld some key details of their findings.

    Nevertheless, the report – obtained by The Oregonian/OregonLive through a public records request – is the first direct account of how Curaleaf confused bottles of marijuana drops with those containing CBD, a wellness product that doesn’t have psychoactive properties.

    Following Curaleaf’s blunder, at least a dozen people who thought they were taking benign CBD drops reporting becoming ill after ingesting jumbo doses of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

    At least five customers reported going to the emergency room after taking the mislabeled drops; two said they were driving when they were incapacitated by an unexpected marijuana high.

    Curaleaf maintains that it complied with state safety requirements, but in a statement this week acknowledged its responsibility in the incident and described several new safety procedures. Among other reforms, Curaleaf said it now tests samples before selling its products.

    “The health and safety of our patients and customers remains our number one priority and we feel confident about the changes made to ensure this doesn’t happen again,” the company said.

    Curaleaf sells both the CBD and THC products under the Select brand name. Oregon regulators recalled the products last summer following a customer complaint and quickly concluded that Curaleaf had mislabeled several hundred bottles. Consumers purchased at least 523.

    Massachusetts-based Curaleaf, one of the nation’s largest recreational marijuana companies, now faces a 70-day suspension from Oregon regulators and a record, $200,000 fine. Curaleaf plans to contest the penalties before an administrative law judge.

    The mishap represents the first big test of how the Oregon Liquor & Cannabis Commission handles consumer safety and how it applies its regulatory standards.

  • Judge allows Illinois to issue licenses for 185 new cannabis stores following prolonged legal delay.

    After nearly 10 months of delay, a judge Friday ended the court order preventing Illinois from issuing 185 new recreational cannabis store licenses — though further litigation may jeopardize those licenses again.

    Cook County Circuit Judge Michael Mullen lifted the stay that was issued last year, allowing the state to begin licensing new businesses, many of them started by Black and Latino owners.

  • What do you call a stoner with two spliffs? Double-jointed


    How do you know do you know someone’s a true pothead? When their bongs get cleaned more often than their dishes!


    A cop asks the guy, “How high are you?” The guy responded with, “No, officer. It’s ‘Hi, how are you.’ “


    Why is a roach clip called a ‘roach clip’? Because ‘pot-holder’ was already taken.


    What happens when you eat marijuana? You get a pot belly.

  • Smoking up could be a very different experience for men and women, according to a 2014 study in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence. In research on rats, Washington State University psychologist Rebecca Craft found that females were more sensitive to cannabis' painkilling qualities, but they were also more likely to develop a tolerance for the drug, which could contribute to negative side effects and dependence on marijuana.

    The female rats' higher levels of the hormone estrogen seem to play a role in these sex-specific effects. Female rats are more sensitive to the effects of cannabis at ovulation, when estrogen levels are highest, Craft said in a statement.

  • The marijuana plant isn't used only for smoking; its fibers can also be made into rope or fabric. Perhaps the oddest use of hemp rope on record is as a method for transporting giant stone statues. In 2012, archaeologists created reproductions of Easter Island's statues, trying to figure out how ancient people may have moved the iconic 9,600-lb. (4.35 metric tons) heads from their quarry. Theorists have suggested everything from log rollers to extraterrestrial help for the task, but in 2012, California State University Long Beach archaeologist Carl Lipo proved that all that was needed is hemp rope.

    By attaching three hemp ropes to the statue and having a team of 18 people rock it back and forth until it "walked," Lipo and his team were able to move the hunk of stone 328 feet (100 meters) in less than an hour, they reported in the Journal of Archaeological Science. Easter Islanders would have had woody shrubs similar to marijuana plants to use in making rope, the researchers argued.
