Stoners are some of my favorite people in the world. They are resourceful, innovative, and they come up with some of the wildest ideas around. There is something about being stoned that brings out the most creative sides of people. It also brings out the hungriest and (sometimes) laziest parts of people too. When you are stoned you just want to chill and eat something.
Before you read this list I will give my disclaimer, I don’t know for certain that everyone who invented the products are this list were stoners. This is just speculation but pretty undeniable speculation at that.
Here are 12 inventions that were almost certainly created by someone who was blazing.
George Foreman Grill – Anything that can cook up meat this quickly, easily, and thoroughly had to have been created by a stoner. We need as many assorted munchies as we can have in as short a time as possible.
Multiple disk CD changers – For when you need to hear that track and you just DON’T feel like moving anywhere to change the CD.
Remote controls – Maybe the most important invention for stoners ever for obvious reasons. If it wasn’t for this, you would probably never change your channel, ever.
Recliners – Being comfortable during high times is essential.
Microwave Ovens – This was made by stoners for stoners. Similarly to the George Foreman Grill, fast and easy food is always a good thing.
Vending Machines – More quick and easy food, especially if you do it like these guys do it.
Clips – Any kind of clip can be used for roaches. I don’t even know that they have any other use.
Caller ID – There is nothing worse than picking up the phone while your high and it is someone you DON’T want to talk to like someone who talks too much or your boss.
Silly Putty – You have to be high to come up with some shit like this.
Lighter Leash – Stoners lose lighters like nobodies business. This is the best way for you to offer someone your lighter and make sure you get it back.
iRobot – These automatic vacuum thing are perfect for when your high but someone knocks over the ashtray.
Key ringer – Stoners have the tendency of losing things frequently. Just hope that you are not the ass that is searching for his keys with the key thing that beeps to let you know where they are, and they are right in your other hand.
The 5 Worst States to Get Busted With Pot
Police prosecute over 800,000 Americans annually for violating state marijuana laws. The penalties for those busted and convicted vary greatly, ranging from the imposition of small fines to license revocation to potential incarceration. But for the citizens arrested in these five states, the ramifications of even a minor pot bust are likely to be exceptionally severe.
1. Oklahoma. Lawmakers in the Sooner State made headlines this spring when legislators voted 119 to 20 in favor of House Bill 1798, which enhances the state sentencing guidelines for hash manufacturing to a minimum of two years in jail and a maximum penalty of life in prison. (Mary Fallin, the state’s first-ever female governor, signed the measure into law in April; it takes effect on November 1, 2011.) But longtime Oklahoma observers were hardly surprised at lawmakers’ latest “life for pot” plan. After all, state law already allows judges to hand out life sentences for those convicted of cannabis cultivation or for the sale of a single dime-bag.
Patricia Marilyn Spottedcow, 25, learned the truth about Oklahoma’s excessive pot penalties the hard way in February when a judge sentenced the mother of four to 12 years in prison for her role in the sale of $39 worth of herb to an undercover informant. Spottedcow’s sentence sparked national media attention – and public outrage – but neither result has led the judge in the case to reconsider the terms of her confinement.
Similarly harsh sentences for pot are par for the course in the Sooner State. Paraplegic Jimmy Montgomery was sentenced to life in prison – later reduced to 10 years – after being caught with two ounces of medical pot in his wheelchair. After considerable public outcry, Montgomery was eventually granted early release on medical parole – though he later lost a leg from an ulcerated bed sore he developed while in prison. Rheumatoid arthritis patient Will Foster – convicted of marijuana cultivation in 1997 – received a similarly draconian 93-year sentence, later reduced to 20 years on appeal. Foster was eventually paroled and moved to California, where he quickly registered as a legal medi-pot patient. However, in 2009 he was extradited back to Oklahoma to serve additional time behind bars.
Overall, some 13,000 Oklahomans are busted for pot annually. Only 12 other states arrest a greater percentage of their population for weed, and arguably no state sentences those convicted more harshly.
2. Texas. On an annual basis, no state arrests and criminally prosecutes more of its citizens for pot than does Texas. Marijuana arrests comprise over half of all annual arrests in the Lone Star State. It is easy to see why. In 2009, more than 97 percent of all Texas marijuana arrests — over 77,000 people — were for possession only. Those convicted face up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine, even upon a first conviction.
Despite Texas’ dubious distinction as the #1 pot prosecuting state in America, police and lawmakers have little interest in exploring alternatives. In 2007, Gov. Rick Perry signed legislation (HB 2391) into law granting police the option of issuing a summons in lieu of an arrest in minor marijuana possession cases. Yet aside from police in Austin, long considered to be the state’s lone bastion of liberalism, law enforcement have continued to fervently make arrests in even the most trivial of pot cases.
In 2011, Houston Democrat Harold Dutton introduced House Bill 458, which sought to reduce penalties for the adult possession of one ounce or less of marijuana to a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine not exceeding $500 and no criminal record. Within weeks, over 2,500 Texans contacted their House members in support of the measure. Nonetheless, House lawmakers refused to even consider bringing the measure to a vote.
3. Florida. According to a 2009 state-by-state analysis by researcher and former NORML Director Jon Gettman, no other state routinely punishes minor marijuana more severely than does the Sunshine State. Under Florida law, marijuana possession of 20 grams or less (about two-thirds of an ounce) is a criminal misdemeanor punishable by up to one-year imprisonment and a $1,000 fine. Marijuana possession over 20 grams, as well as the cultivation of even a single pot plant, are defined by law as felony offenses – punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. In recent years, state lawmakers have revisited the state’s marijuana penalties – in each case electing to enhanceFlorida’s already toughest-in-the-nation criminal punishments.
Ironically, despite the Sunshine State’s long history as one of the nation’s stiffest pot prosecutors, law enforcement have steadfastly refused to report their annual marijuana arrest data to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Illinois is the only other state that elects to withhold this information from federal statisticians.
4. Louisiana. On May 6 the Associated Press reported on the case of Cornell Hood II, who received a life sentence for possessing two pounds of pot. Hood received the maximum sentence under Louisiana’s habitual drug offender law because he had three prior marijuana convictions, although none of them were significant enough to result in even a single day of jail time.
Multi-decade sentences for repeat pot offenders are hardly a rare occurrence. Under Louisiana law, a second pot possession conviction is classified as a felony offense, punishable by up to five years in prison. Three-time offenders face up to 20 years in prison. According to a 2008 expose published in the New Orleans City Business online, district attorneys are not hesitant to “target small-time marijuana users, sometimes caught with less than a gram of pot, and threaten them with lengthy prison sentences.”
Each year, cops make nearly 19,000 pot busts in the Bayou State – some 91 percent for simple possession – and according to Gettman, only three other states routinely punish minor offenders so severely.
5. Arizona. Forty years ago virtually every state in the nation defined marijuana possession as a felony offense. Today, only one state, Arizona, treats first-time pot possession in such an archaic and punitive manner.
Under Arizona law, even minor marijuana possession offenses may be prosecuted as felony crimes, punishable by up to 18 months in jail and a $150,000 fine. According to Jon Gettman’s 2009 analysis only Florida consistently treats minor marijuana possession cases more severely.
Annually, some 22,000 Arizonans are busted for pot and 92 percent of those arrested are charged with possession only. Citing the rising costs of these prosecutions at a time of shrinking state budgets, first-term GOP House lawmaker John Fillmore (Apache Junction) recently introduced legislation, HB 2228, to reduce pot possession to a non-criminal petty offense, punishable by no more than a $100 fine. So how did his supposedly “small government, no nanny state” colleagues respond to his proposal? With “a lot of smiles and laughs,” Fillmore told the Phoenix New Times. Predictably, HB 2228 failed to even receive a legislative hearing from his fellow lawmakers.

Marijuana vs. Crystal Meth
The great debate!
Clio MI (OPENPRESS) April 1, 2011 – All Natural Health and Wellness formally announces the opening of a 30,000 square foot center which also houses the non-profit Cannabis Research Institute. The center is dedicated to various forms of therapy, exercise, nutrition, education, safe transfer of Medical Marijuana and the first facility to gather information on its use. While operating under construction they have signed over 150 new members since opening on January-15, 2011.
The ideal model for Medical Marijuana facilities has been elusive. The Health and Wellness center has been meeting with local officials in Vienna township to develop not only a model that works in their community but one that could be used for other centers across Michigan. The relationship with authorities is vital to the facility and the community itself.
In 2007 a survey conducted by the Genesee department of community health shows that the 48420 area code of Clio is in poor health due to three things. A lack of twenty minutes of exercise a day, eating less fruits and vegetables, and three times the cancer rate of anywhere in the state. All Natural Health and wellness with the help of the Cannabis Research Institute are making it a top priority to aid with this concern.
The facility is open to the public and not just for Medical Marijuana patients, more than 80 percent of the facility is dedicated to various forms of health which includes a Fitness Center, equipped with rehabilitation equipment and a personal trainer, Therapeutic Massage, Health and Nutrition certified professionals, Pulse Electromagnetic Therapy treatment center, Yoga, Doctor approved MMMP patient registration, educational classes on preventative and alternative health, growing classes, green technology, alternative energy source, and American History.
Members will enjoy a state of the art theater room arranged for eight, a relaxation room, two group meeting areas, a Cannabis Hemp museum and boutique featuring textiles, food products, body, hair, cosmetics and clothing accessories for sale.
Members also receive “free access” to The Cannabis Research Institute of America, abbreviated “C.R.I”, a non- profit institute offering safe access for patient and caregivers registered through the Michigan Department of Community Health MMMP Program. It is the first Patient care facility to allow cannabis use in order to gather research information such as illness, strain, dosage and effects. Caregivers lease space at specific times to transfer medicine. No cannabis is left in the facility after hours.
The facility plans on expanding a state of the art medical cannabis testing and research lab in the near future, to examine medical cannabis for molds/fungi, CBD/CBN, and THC level testing. Research will start by first doing a series of surveys from both members and residents of surrounding communities.
They presently employ 15 full time and 5 part time employees and instructors. They plan to add a possible 30 more jobs within the next 12 months, despite Michigan’s suffering economy. Their goal is to provide affordable natural health alternatives to not only the upper class, but also to the less fortunate. If one cannot afford it, they accept commitment
Monthly question and answer meetings opened to the public, as well as outdoor festivals attracting national and state wide talents.
All Natural Health and Wellness is open Monday and Friday, 10am-9pm Tuesday-Thursday 10am- 6pm, Saturday 12-9pm and closed on Sunday.
Starting April 2nd they will take cannabis education to the airways during a weekly show called “Cannabis for Life”. Broadcasting live on WFNT 1470 am at 1pm every Saturday from the facility. The show is formatted to educate the public on Medical Cannabis as well as answer questions from listeners. It will also be streamed on the web at http://www.cannabis4life.org.
