Holy shit. MGK is the KING.
We’re giving him an honorary gold crown (with an official ANDPOP engraving of course) for giving one of the most chilled out, honest interviews we’ve ever had. ANDPOP’s Casey Jones sat down with the Cleveland rapper and knew it would be a good interview as soon as he started rolling a joint, completely casual. Read more…
According to Kansas’ KMBC News, Wichita, Kansas police were perplexed when three bags of Marijuana in their storage facility were torn open with some of the evidence gone missing.
The police department first thought that someone had tampered with the evidence. But after a quick investigation, they came to the conclusion that the police facility was also home to a couple of stoner mice.
The mice had chewed through the bags, nested in them and then ate some of the weed. The incident is not totally uncommon because of weed’s strong scent.
The kicker in this story had to be that the police felt compelled to create suspect renderings to alert the public of these wanted fugitives.
The whole ordeal sounds like the next Seth Rogan stoner comedy, which (in my mind) should be a mix between Disney’s Ratatouille, Pineapple Express, and for added creepiness and drama, The Brave Little Toaster. You can send the cheque to me, Rogan, when Judd Apatow decides to pick up the project.
Looks like the new year isn’t treating Justin Bieber too good. Days after a paparazzo was killed trying take pics of Bieber’s Ferrari, photos of the singer smoking what allegedly looks like marijuana have now started appearing on the internet.
According to TMZ, Bieber was hanging with his pal Lil’ Twist, who was driving Bieber’s car at the time the paparazzo was killed on a highway in Los Angeles.
The Biebs has since took to Twitter to issue an apology directed to events that have taken place during the past few days.
“Everyday growing and learning. trying to be better. u get knocked down, u get up,” he tweeted last night. “i see all of u. i hear all of u. i never want to let any of you down. i love u. and..thank u.
Honestly, we should really cut Justin some slack. Although a famous singer, he’s just a normal teenager experimenting and learning about life’s ups and downs.
Okay, it isn’t the real Mitt Romney, but a man wearing a Mitt Romney mask, robbed a bank in Virginia this past week. The man took money from all five tellers before fleeing. A A strange fact, this is the same bank where someone robbed it wearing a Hillary Clinton mask, two years ago.
Two elephants drank vodka to survive, after the trailer they were in caught fire in freezing cold, Siberia. Their handler, quickly bought two cases of vodka, and mixing it with water, had the elephants drink it. In the end it probably saved their lives. They only had a little frost bite on their ears and trunks. The elephants are on tour with the circus, and the show must go on.
Smashing pigs with a hammer, New York tradition
A New York tradition at Christmas, isn’t exactly the first thing you think about during the holidays. Saratoga Sweets, in Halfmoon, New York carries on a Christmas tradition, of pink peppermint pigs. The hard candy pigs are selling like hot chocolate on a cold winter day. The best part, these piggies are sold with a little hammer to crush them. They are considered good luck, to smash them apart after Christmas.
Can’t say I’ve ever wanted to see what a giant replica of the human colon looks like, better yet, want to sleep in one, but it exists. The lovely hotel, is located on a small island near Antwerp, Belgium. On the outside, its exactly what it looks like, a giant human colon replica. On the inside, it’s actually cozy, clean and livable. What was once just an art piece, it is now been turned into a hotel. Surprisingly, all the reviews have been positive.
Canon shoots cans of Pot into the USA
I’ve heard of elaborate plans to smuggle Marijuana across borders, but this one is the coolest. About 30 cans filled with pot, were shot out of some sort of canon from Mexico, into Arizona, USA. The value is estimated at $42,500.
I can’t tell if this video is really deep, upsetting or just bewildering. I’m going with the last one, especially when he got into the poopy boner territory. Needless to say, whoever made this probably high while editing.
In light of current events and some rather heated debates, we wanted to get Diplo’s opinion on a serious issue. Which presidential candidate would he like to get high with and on what drug? We also go further down the rabbit hole to discuss the effects of illicit substances on the creative process. Do drugs really make you a better producer or songwriter? Are musicians really expanding their creative horizons or just getting high?
I think the last and only time I live-tweeted some type of activity with my dad was back on Father’s Day when I took him to a board game cafe with my sister. The most rebellious things we did that day involved drinking high-calorie Nutella lattes and playing a mobster board game that involved fake guns, but other than that it was pretty Leave It to Beaver.
Snoop Dogg Snoop Lion’s son Corde “Spanky” Broadus’ quality time with dad involves smoking pot. The 18-year-old regularly tweets photos of him smoking but we don’t always getting a glimpse of his badass rapper dad.
Like father like son, right?
Amanda Bynes isn’t even trying to hide the fact that she’s a terrible driver anymore and should probably be taken off the road. She was recently snapped smoking a bong behind the wheel, aimlessly rolling around LA, while on a suspended license.
Along with driving around pointlessly for several hours, she smoked a pipe in the parking lot of Mexican restaurant Baja Fresh in San Fernando Valley and Home Depot, where she picked up multi-colour light bulbs.
According to TMZ, Amanda has been charged with two hit-and-runs and various drivers have complained that she either hit them or created a dangerous situation.
Not only is Amanda endangering other people on the road, she’s setting a terrible example for fans who look up to her. So it’s no question that she should be prosecuted. That said, you can’t vilify the girl considering she probably needs help. She’s spiralling down a bad path and the big question is how do you help her?
TMZ also snapped photos of her car, which looks like it’s a mess.

Every week ANDPOP columnist Kelly Burns narrows down the most bizarre stories of the week. They’re not exactly newsworthy but just weird enough to grab our attention. This week, San Francisco offers awesome Jedi classes and a dude busted for marijuana shows us why logic is a valuable skill.
The Dark Knight
rises is arrested
So Matthew Argintar obviously hasn’t seen ANY Batman movies, but dresses up like the hero and freaks the public right out. The 23-year-old, was arrested outside a New Jersey Home Depot, after being spotted dressed up as Batman, and asking people if they needed any help. Hey Matthew! Watch the movies! Batman doesn’t just ask random people if they need help. He knows where the bad guys are and saves those already in distress.. DUH! With the recent Colorado shooting, this is not a funny prank…
Warning: don’t insert in anus
I can’t believe people actually are dumb enough to do this! A man in Australia must have watched Jackass, cause he decided he would stick some fireworks in his buttocks and light them off for kicks. Well, this didn’t end well, for OBVIOUS REASONS! He was treated for burns to his cheeks, back and privates. SMH Do we really need this warning added to firework labels? Warning: Please do not insert in anus.
How to be a Jedi 101
Alright, so this might actually be my dream come true. If you love Star Wars like me and have always wanted to be a Jedi Knight, NOW YOU CAN! In San Francisco, there are lightsaber training classes for adults. The end goal of the class is to reenact the ending scene from The Empire Strikes Back, when Luke and Darth Vader have it out. I think I’m vacationing in San Francisco this Fall.
Drugs are bad mmkay? Read more…
In celebration of Bob Byington’s deadpan comedy Somebody Up There Likes Me getting picked up by Tribeca for a March 2013 video-on-demand and theatrical run, some of the stars decided to smoke up in bed and relax. The film is a surreal comedy about the cycle of life.
Offerman, who is a producer and star of the movie, is joined by wife Megan Mullally and Community actress Alison Brie. The three of them also star in the upcoming indie comedy Toy’s House.
While there are so many things that are confusing about this video (Why do they each need their own bong? Why do they bleep out the first swear word from Brie but no the second?), studios should take note — this is how you promote a movie.
Watch it here:
These brothers Mickey and Sam were driving around in circles listening to Led Zeppelin, having a good time as usual (we’re pretty sure that means they were getting high) when they saw smoke billowing out from a house. They drove by out of curiosity or as one person says on YouTube: “They actually thought it was a giant blunt and pulled over to see if they could smoke it.” Then they were all like “DUDE” when they realized the garage was on fire.
Instead of being majorly paranoid, the guys turned into superheroes, ran up to the house and urged the family to vacate their home. They pretty much saved the family’s lives but their new “hero” status doesn’t seem to phase them.
Instead they say about the incident with glazed eyes and a crooked smile: “Pretty crazy. That’s AWESOME and we don’t get to see that everyday.”
Watch it here:
Samuel L. Jackson revealed the real story behind The Hulk’s power and the key to uniting The Avengers. It all comes down to marijuana. Well not just plain old marijuana, the iridescent green kind that inspires greatness.
Jackson, who plays Nick Fury, was like a green bud connoisseur during a recent interview with Reelz, describing how hybrid weed makes the angry green superhero indestructible. Even when the interviewer Steve Patterson tried to get back to — you know — legit questions about the movie the conversation always went back to pot.
“Nick Fury is like the ringleader in this movie. In real life how would Sam Jackson keep all of those guys in check?”
“The Hulk — give them that green weed that you’ve got in that bag right there,” Jackson answered pointing to a nearby table. “Not the dark green, the iridescent green.”
“Somehow I think I’m going to get fired for this but I kind of like this,” said Patterson. “Going down in flames.”
Jackson was also candid about how the movie is best enjoyed after smoking a little before the show.
“I’m just going to say it straight out,” he said. “You should see The Avengers after you hit one great big bud of Hulk cause this movie is a mother-f*cking yes!”
No word on whether or not Jackson was indeed high during the interview though he did cover himself by saying people should get a prescription.
I am truly shocked. Wiz Khalifa arrested for possession of marijuana? No way.
According to TMZ, he tossed the small bag of weed when cops came to his room at a Holiday Inn in Nashville, but they found it. The Metro Nashville Police responded to someone who complained about a strong odour.
Wiz Khalifa, whose songs include “Still Blazin” and “Weed Brownies,” was slapped with a citation and then probably went back to blazing.
It’s 420! In celebration, we play the “guess who has smoked pot?” game with Jimmy Kimmel and watch a music video that will probably kill your buzz. Then we admire Jennifer Lawrence’s impressive archery skills.
420 is the holiday on which people who already get high everyday, get high again.
To celebrate the esteemed holiday, Jimmy Kimmel sent a correspondent out on the street to play a new round of their popular pedestrian guessing game.
Here are the rules: they ask each contestant whether or not they’ve ever smoked pot and you have to guess what their answer will be. It’s more difficult than you think, though a couple of them are givens, ie the guy wearing the cannabis shirt who has a join behind his ear.

Cults, grow ops and drug busts, oh my! Clare’s situation goes from bad to worse and then to okay when she makes a truce with Jake. Hopefully, we see less of the vindictive ex-girlfriend version of Clare and more of the nice nice and rational Clare from now on. However, the real cliffhanger of this episode is Fiona. Now that her two best friends are dating, where does that leave her?
Here’s what I learned on this week’s episode of Degrassi “Not Ready To Make Nice Part 2.”
1) Clare’s new living situation isn’t making anyone happy. Her mom’s crying her eyes out and Summer’s emotionally blackmailing to stay in the cult. Then she finds out her new home is a grow op! And her new family are “herbalists” aka dealers! This girl cannot catch a break! Luckily, Jake has enough sense to tell Clare that she’s in a dangerous situation, but she still decides to stay…
2) That is until the “herb” hits the fan. Clare comes home to find Summer on her cell packing up all the plants. Something stinks and it’s not the weed. But it’s too late, the cops raid her new home and arrest Summer and her boyfriend and detain Clare and Jake, who came to save her. Luckily, she doesn’t get arrested and goes back home to live with her mom and big bro Jake.
3) For a class clown, Mo is really gullible. Connor and KC watch as Mo falls for the fake Facerange girl and agree to meet up with her at The Dot later. I know he was picking on Connor before, but after watching Mo’s face light up at the idea of a date with a pretty girl, the whole thing just seems cruel.
4) Turns out Mo isn’t such a big shot with the jocks. And when he skips an important game to meet Connor’s fake Internet girl, it basically solidifies his loser status. When Mo comes back from being stood up by his non-existent date, he and Connor come up with a genius plan to distract the opposing team and win the game. Seems like the beginning of a beautiful friendship…
5) Fiona’s meddling actually works out and Eli and Imogen agree to go on a date. And it’s all sunshine and rainbows until Fiona starts crying. She plays them off as tears of joy but something tells me she’s not so happy with her handiwork.
Oh boy. All these celebrities are going through their rebellious stages aren’t they? First we hear about Selena Gomez’ non-threatening heart tattoo and now Miley Cyrus — pot queen and Bob Marley lover — was spotted leaving a Marijuana Dispensary in Los Angeles this week.
The 19-year-old salvia connoisseur was photographed with her friend exiting Therapeutic Health Care, which sells legal medical marijuana for anyone with a prescription.
The story is blowing up on gossip sites even though there’s one
small major detail missing: no one actually knows what Cyrus bought! Cheers to deduction skills.
Cyrus became known as a marijuana enthusiast after her birthday video leaked, in which she jokes: “You know you’re a stoner when friends make you a Bob Marley cake — you know you smoke way too much f***in’ weed.”
We’ll leave the hypothesizing up to you for now.
Apparently Wiz Khalifa loves smoking pot enough to devote an entire song to it. His new song Mary X3 is presumably an ode to marijuana. Take the following lyric for instance: “gettin’ higher than the Bee Gees … we both just stayin’ alivin.”
Mary X3 is just one of Wiz Khalifa’s new songs, which also includes “Morocco” and “My Favorite Song.” The tracks have a spacey vibe to them and like many of his previous songs they feature drugs, alcohol and money.
What do you think of them?

I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to deal with the death of a friend or family member while the whole world is watching and scrutinizing your every move. That’s why I feel for Bobbi Kristina Brown. After making headlines last week for falling asleep in a bathtub in the same hotel where her mother died, she is back in the spotlight for allegedly getting high after her mother’s funeral.
A couple hours after the funeral the family went to eat at a nearby restaurant but couldn’t find Bobbi. Two sources told The Daily Beast that she was found using drugs and that her family didn’t find her until just before the burial on Sunday morning.
Since then, the media has erupted with questions of whether she has a drug problem. Although her family won’t say she has a problem, it was reported well before Whitney’s death that Bobbi was photographed snorting cocaine.
Her spiral downwards is not uncommon with celebrities so it’s true that her behaviour shouldn’t be treated lightly. However, the girl’s mother just died and constantly berating her in the press isn’t going to make the situation any better. I can understand what lengths someone might go to to neutralize such fresh pain. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not condoning drugs in any way, I’m just saying that she has been through a lot and it’s not nice to kick her when she’s already down.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about the situation. What do you think?
