Well folks, they’ve recalled cars, they’ve recalled meat and other groceries, they’ve recalled appliances, cribs, stupid stuff and weird stuff!
But this is the first time they recalled POT!
That’s right kids, “don’t smoke the Purple Kush.”
That’s the message Health Canada is sending out to medical marijuana users across the country after issuing its first-ever recall for a batch of prescription pot.
The recall, affecting only 63 of Canada’s roughly 40,000 medical marijuana users, was sparked after a government inspection at B.C.-based producer Greenleaf Medicinals found problems with the company’s control, production and oversight procedures, said Heath Canada spokeswoman Erika Easton.
“We’ve uncovered some product that wasn’t up to standard and we’ve issued a recall,” Easton said.

Greenleaf doesn’t appear on government’s list of licensed medical marijuana producers.
The company’s website is no longer available and calls to the company weren’t returned on Saturday.
Health Canada said Greenleaf is working with licensed producers to help clients affected by the recall.

drunk3Don’t like weed? Introducing Palcohol, the world’s sneakiest and most efficient way to get drunk. This week, the Alcohol and Tobacco Bureau approved the powdered booze product, and its makers hopes to unleash it on an unsuspecting public this fall.
Palcohol’s website, which has since been scrubbed, once advertised the powder as the solution to many of the modern drinker’s most pressing problems. (A cached version of the original site is still accessible here)
Take, for instance, the overpriced drinks at stadium events.
What’s worse than going to a concert, sporting event, etc. and having to pay $10, $15, $20 for a mixed drink with tax and tip. Are you kidding me?! Take Palcohol into the venue and enjoy a mixed drink for a fraction of the cost.
Palcohol also makes for an easy way to get hammered over breakfast without anyone noticing: just sprinkle it right onto your pancakes, and voilĂ .
We’ve been talking about drinks so far. But we have found adding Palcohol to food is so much fun. Sprinkle Palcohol on almost any dish and give it an extra kick. Some of our favorites are the Kamikaze in guacamole, Rum on a BBQ sandwich, Cosmo on a salad and Vodka on eggs in the morning to start your day off right. Experiment. Palcohol is great on so many foods. Remember, you have to add Palcohol AFTER a dish is cooked as the alcohol will burn off if you cook with it…and that defeats the whole purpose.
Those who’d rather mainline booze directly into their bloodstream are also in luck. Palcohol can be snorted!
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room….snorting Palcohol. Yes, you can snort it. And you’ll get drunk almost instantly because the alcohol will be absorbed so quickly in your nose. Good idea? No. It will mess you up. Use Palcohol responsibly.
It’s hard to imagine how or why the federal government signed off on Palcohol, a product that, in the wrong hands, could make the darkest days of the Four Loko era look tame. For its part, the company says it was caught off guard by the TTB’s announcement, and that the old site copy doesn’t accurately reflect its mission.
What we can say now is that we hope the product will be used in a responsible and legal manner. Being in compliance with all Federal and State laws is very important to us. Palcohol will only be sold through establishments that are licensed to sell liquor.
More information will be forthcoming.


Easter and Christmas are both very important Christian holidays, but while families always gather on Dec. 25 in the winter, the annual spring celebration changes drastically each year on our calendars.
imagesBKU0TQ5PSteven Engler, a professor in religious studies at Mount Royal University, says the basic reason the two differ is because Christmas is fixed to a solar calendar, near the winter solstice, and Easter is based on the Jewish lunar calendar.

He said the Last Supper, which according to Christian belief is the final meal Jesus shared with his apostles before his crucifixion, was a Passover feast — which is part of an important Jewish festival.
“So Christians always had Easter right after Passover,” he said. “And then at the Council of Nicaea in the fourth century, Christians decided to separate themselves from the timing of the Jews on that, so ever since then Passover and Easter have been independent, but they’re both in the spring.”
Engler says the Church decided March 21 is the vernal equinox — or first day of spring — and Easter falls on the first Sunday after the next full moon.
“Spring starts on [March 21] and you wait for the next full moon, and the next Sunday is Easter,” he said.
BOY, have we got a “loser of the Day” for ya: A New Jersey woman says a man she met on a dating website stole her dog and her flat-screen TV on the first date.

untitled (16)Dover police tell the Daily Record of Parsippany (http://dailyre.co/1f8Kwz4) that the pair went out for the first time Thursday night.
After returning home, the woman said she became occupied in another room, leaving the man alone.
When she returned, he was gone — and so were her Yorkshire Terrier named Violet and her TV valued at $3,000.
The woman says she knew her date only as Joel and believes he lived nearby.
Sgt. Richard Gonzalez says police are searching for the man and dog and are checking other locations the short-lived couple visited.

mini-5b763e2d1f9d9b68b0ef2c626f73b424A British prisoner is claiming he’s being persecuted for his Jedi faith. He sent a letter to Inside Time saying the National Offender Management Service refused to recognize his beliefs, even though Jedi was officially recognized in the last census.
The letter also says Jedi’s have been given a negative reputation in the media following the battle of Yavin, when “Luke Skywalker and a group of left-wing militants targeted the Death Star in a terrorist attack, killing thousands of civilian personnel.”
Additionally, the letter asked for the prisoner’s name to be withheld for fear of retaliation from the Dark Side.
Around 175,000 people claimed to be Jedi in the 2011 UK census. Inside Time bills itself as “The National Newspaper for Prisoners & Detainees.”
(Now folks, this story is bullshit, because if the guy really was a Jedi Knight ……………….., he would have escaped a long time ago0!)

Snow crab fishermen on P.E.I. are anxious to get out on the water since ice conditions have delayed the season.
The season can open as early as April 15, but a committee made up of Department of Fisheries and Oceans and industry representatives has delayed it this year because of sea ice conditions in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Carter Hutt, president of the P.E.I. Snow Crab Association, said conditions are improving.
“Out in the Gulf has actually been changing pretty good but they figured that the harbours and the bays were going to be a problem. There has been a big change this week. There are actually boats in the water now and the harbours and bays are opening up,” he said.
Hutt said another conference call between DFO and the industry is scheduled for April 25. He now expects the opening day will be May 1.
There are currently 28 snow crab fishermen on P.E.I.
