     POLICE CONFISCATE GIANT JOINT AT 4-20 CELEBRATION


    Thousands of students gathered at the University of California campus on April 20 every year to celebrate '4-20' by lighting up marijuana at 4.20pm.

    One student had a massive two-pound joint.   Instead of arresting the owner, campus police officers confiscated the ginormous blunt.

    The owner of the joint is furious.

     

    ** In most states, possession of that much marijuana would be a felony punishable by several years in prison.

    ** In California, anyone with a prescription can legally possess up to an ounce of the drug.

  • Celeb lock up includes Reese Witherspoon and Al Michales.

    OF ALL THE CELEBS YOU'D EXPECT TO GET ARRESTED, REESE WITHERSPOON WOULD BE LAST ON THAT LIST, RIGHT?

     

    Reese Witherspoon and her husband, Jim Toth, were arrested and jailed early Friday morning in Atlanta for an alleged DUI and disorderly conduct.

    Witherspoon's agent husband was pulled over under suspicion of driving while intoxicated after weaving across a double line.

    Meanwhile, the actress was arrested for disorderly conduct after ignoring instructions from the arresting officer to stay inside the vehicle.

    The report states, "Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer. I told Mrs. Witherspoon to sit on her butt and be quiet."

    The report also said, "Mrs. Witherspoon asked, 'Do you know my name?' I answered, 'No, I don't need to know your name.' I then added, 'Right now.' Mrs. Witherspoon stated, "You're about to find out who I am'."

    Reese and her hubby were released on bond around 3:30 a.m.on Friday.

    Last night, the actress issued a statement saying she is "deeply embarrassed."

    FULL STATEMENT:

    "Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say, I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said.

    "It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse."


    In regards to her comments,  'Do you know my name?', and, 'You're about to find out who I am', a source tells E! News:  "It wasn't like that." 

    When the officer was handcuffing her, Witherspoon simply asked, "Don't you need to know my name?" 

    The source also added that there was no screaming or any sort of physical altercation between Witherspoon and the officer. "She was being protective of her husband and was fearful of the situation."

  • Young Heavy Metal fans suffer from the most depression & anxiety.

     SUFFERING FROM ANXIETY, DEPRESSION?.... YOU MUST BE A YOUNG HEAVY METAL FAN

    There are "significantly higher levels of anxiety and depression among listeners of heavy metal/hard rock music, as compared with non-listeners."

    550 college students were asked questions regarding music preference, symptoms of depression, anxiety, and trait anger. 57 percent described themselves as heavy metal listeners.

    They were asked to give their preference for different heavy metal sub-genres, including emo, hardcore punk, death metal, and thrash metal.

    Some of the genres "have dark overtones and often use graphic lyrics that express angry, depressed, or painted emotions, in combination with screams, groans, and particularly dense and/or particularly syncopated rhythms."

    The students that listened to heavy metal music reported higher levels of depression, anxiety, and trait anger as compared with people who didn't listen to heavy metal music.

    The researchers also found "significantly higher levels of anxiety and depression among listeners of heavy metal/hard rock music as compared with nonlisteners."

  • What David Lee Roth say's about the "Gay" rumors?

    Posted by David Burns

    Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth has laughed off the suggestion that he married his male chef in a civil ceremony, and explained why he'll never get married.

    And the singer says he's glad he split with Van Halen during the 1980s – because it made him a more interesting person.

    Roth tells Buzzfeed.com: "I've lived alone my whole adult life. I've had girlfriends. I've had love affairs. Never longer than a year and a half.

    "I'm the drunk who won the lottery – I'm going to be very difficult to convince of a lot of traditional things. I put off getting married when I found out: oh, you don't really have to!"

    He returned to Van Halen in 2006 after leading a solo career, and was at the helm for last year's album A Different Kind Of Truth. "I wonder who I might have been had I stayed in the band," he reflects. "Not as interesting, not as involved. more on this story

  • Your trip to Mars includes drinking your own urine? Where do I sign up?

    LOTS OF PEOPLE WANT TO GO TO MARS

    Applicants are pouring in for the first manned mission to Mars.

    If selected, you'll be crammed into a space the size of an RV for more than a year, breath recycled air, eat dehydrated food and drink your purified urine.

    The Inspiration Mars Foundation wants to send two humans on a 501-day fly-by journey to the red planet in January 2018. They'd like it to be a married couple if possible.

    2018 is a good time for the journey because the positions of Earth and Mars are the closest they'll get until 2031.

    If an applicant dies during the trip they'll be freeze dried in a body bag. If they survive they'll re-enter the earth's atmosphere at a screaming 8.8 miles per second.

    The goal of the mission is to inspire the public—and congress—to recommit to long-distance space travel.

  • They think this could be the Boston Bomber on video.

    Posted by David Burns
    THERE HASN'T BEEN AN ARREST IN BOSTON BOMBINGS, BUT THE FEDS THINK THEY HAVE THE BOMBERS ON VIDEO

    The Feds are passing out pictures of two men they say are ‘possible suspects' in the Boston marathon bombing… but they aren't showing the clear photos to the public just yet.

    According to a reporter who saw the pictures, one of the men is wearing a backpack that matches one of the bags that was used in the terror attack.

    The video is from the Lord and Taylor department store, and it reportedly shows a man planting the second bomb while talking on his cell phone.

    A CBS correspondent said the big debate right now is whether to release the images of the men to the public. 'For investigators, there's always a difficult choice because if the person doesn't know you're looking for him, he may stay in place, you may catch up to him. If he does know you're looking for him, he may run. On the other hand, if you don't get him, it's always great to enlist 20 million or so more eyes in the public who may be able to give you a location right away.'

     

    FYI… Regardless of all of the reports from the past 24 hours that said the feds made an arrest, that's not the case.
