Well, it’s Monday…the Winter Olympics are on, football season is over, “The LEGO Movie” is number one at the box office. Nothing out of the ordinary…unless you scan the web! Holy shit….what the hell is Bruce Jenner doing to himself?! Shia LaBeouf cruisin’ Berlin wearing a paper bag. Bode Miller whining about mother nature at Sochi (what’s the matter Bode? Someone have a case of the “Mondays”?) Listen, I can’t do what he does but it seems when the expectations are high..well….let Bode explain: “I think I skied well enough to win, but it just doesn’t happen sometimes.” It just doesn’t happen sometimes? No kidding. At least he doesn’t look like Bruce Jenner, who should borrow Shia LaBeouf’s paper bag. All teasing aside, I wish I was famous! – THE 4519
“I am not famous!” -Shia (from the Transformers Movies)
This is from an article in the Associated Press about Hunter S. Thompson. According to author E Jean Carrol’s biography, “Hunter: The Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson”, this would have been his typical daily routine. Who cares if this itinerary of his typical day is unlikely – if it were real and he did consume all the drugs and booze listed it only adds to the legend!!! As Dr Gonzo always said, “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
“One thief, posing as a delivery man, pulled a can of bear mace on employees and ransacked their marijuana shop, fleeing in a defensive cloud of “ultra-pepper” spray.”
Colorado pot shops are being terrorized by gangs of armed robbers. Although marijuana sales are legal in Colorado, they are still banned by Congress. The federal ban has forced many shops to keep large amounts of cash on hand, as banks are refusing their deposits. This has not escaped the notice of criminals, who are robbing the stores to gain piles of cash.
Although most shops have increased their security measures, the thieves simply get more creative. As reported by NBC News, the gangs have dug tunnels under shops, driven through storefronts, and broken chains and locks off the doors.
Michael Elliot, with the Marijuana Industry Group, said “everyone in the industry is having nightmares.” Weeks after Colorado legalized marijuana, a gang of armed robbers targeted at lest eight pot shops. The gangs are armed and often restrain employees at gunpoint while they pillage the cash.
