Climb aboard kids—it’s time to tune in, drop out, and have your mind expanded.
Five years. That’s how long the Nevada State Athletic Commission decided UFC fighter/enigma Nick Diaz won’t be allowed to fight. That’s more than most steroid users. All over goddamn marijuana.
I imagine that parents get struck with a revelation in the process of rearing a child that helps them appreciate the enormity of the task before them. I say “imagine” because I’ve never had a child. At least, a real one. But I was struck by that revelation recently thanks to a small, weird Nintendo game of all things.
Here's a small detail that seems to have slipped everyone's radar. Like many Metal Gear Solid games, the Phantom Pain lets you smoke. Only this time, the game says that the cigar contains a "medicinal herb."

You can smoke pot in GTA V, according to the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. That same group has offered a bunch of other mild spoilers for GTA V, if you're interested.
Arjan Roskam. Don't know who he is? He's behind a number of famous marijuana strains, like White Widow and Super Silver Haze—and behind the huge Green House Seed Company, which makes millions of dollars every year, all around an empire of weed.

Earlier this week, I brought you the story of a good friend who gave me his original Xbox without wiping its contents. From the data, I was able to piece together a sentimental portrait of my friend as he and his wife started their new lives together.
