Romancing The Stoners 2: First Pot Restaurant in Los Angeles

Will Dining Out Endanger The Young?

We hate marijuana and we want readers to be aware of how much this awful weed is influencing restaurants and chefs.  We predict that increasing numbers of children and teenagers will be endangered as the number of these restaurants increase over time.  We do not care that adults use weed – just leave the children alone!

We wonder whether this joint will have any warnings on the door like “this place can cause mental health disorders like suicide” and “don’t drive after using marijuana-infused foodstuffs.”  California warns restaurant patrons about cancer causing products or environmentally unsafe plastic straws so it stands to reason this place would comply, right?

  • What is WEHO?  West Hollywood.

The first marijuana restaurant in Los Angeles will open September 2019 in WEHO.  The Lowell Cafe “will offer its guests a range of high-quality cannabis flowers, vapes, pre-packaged edibles, concentrates and extracts.”  Andrea Drummer is the chef.

According to their website, the joint will not serve pot-infused dishes but will sell pot-infused packaged foodstuffs.

Here’s a snapshot of Andrea Drummer, who competed on the Netflix series, “Cooking on High” after she appeared in Kitchen Toke’s inaugural 2017 issue.

Stoned Driver Kills 5

New York – Fox News

Driver who killed 5 in crash had ‘second largest level’ of marijuana seen by medical examiner in living specimen: report

Jamel Turner was sentenced to 27 years in jail for vehicular manslaughter and several other charges linked to the Valentine’s Day 2018 crash on Long Island when he rear-ended a car on the highway while traveling 154 miles per hour, the New York Times reported. All of the victims burned alive, prosecutors said.

Turner was driving four times the legal 40 mph speed limit or approximately “the speed at which jetliners take off,” Suffolk district attorney, Timothy Sini, said at the sentencing hearing. The medical examiner said Turner had the “the second-highest level of marijuana that they’ve ever seen in a living specimen” at the time of the crash, Sini added.

Turner, who was driving a stolen Chevy Camaro, plowed into the McCoy family’s Mazda, which then hit another car and careened into an oil truck until catching fire. All four passengers in the Mazda were burned alive.

Turner’s friend and dog were also killed when they were thrown from the Camaro. The driver of the oil truck suffered severe injuries to his neck and spine. Turner, who is a convicted drug dealer with a lengthy record, pleaded guilty to the charges against him connected to the crash earlier this year.

Before the sentencing hearing Tuesday, he refused to leave his jail cell and wanted to withdraw his guilty plea. Justice Fernando Camacho denied the request and threatened Turner could lose his plea deal and face life in prison if he did not show in court.

Once in court, Turner issued a brief apology to the relatives of the deceased to which Camacho reiterated that he had “wiped out an entire family” who was “burned alive,” the New York Times reported.

How to reduce the world’s population?

“A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”  Ted Turner, a wealthy globalist.

Knowing that marijuana reduces sperm count by up to 55% (1), it stands to reason that wealthy influential globalists like Ted Turner have  played a monumental role in the legalization of marijuana.  It also lowers male testosterone (2).

  • Ensure increased access to legal marijuana by investing in foods and beverages and candies that are poisoned with cannabis
  • Encourage new cannabis entrepreneurs
  • Raise the status of cannabis users and manufacturers
  • Change the image from dirty and filthy to young and sexy
  • Flip the health concerns on its head and promote cannabis as a new path to wellness

Looks like the globalists are working overtime romancing The Stoner Cult.

Are the wealthy globalists attempting to reduce the world population by introducing cannabis poisons into beverages?

America’s Invisible Pot Addicts

The Atlantic

More and more Americans are reporting near-constant cannabis use, as legalization forges ahead.

Public-health experts worry about the increasingly potent options available, and the striking number of constant users. “Cannabis is potentially a real public-health problem,” said Mark A. R. Kleiman, a professor of public policy at New York University. “It wasn’t obvious to me 25 years ago, when 9 percent of self-reported cannabis users over the last month reported daily or near-daily use. I always was prepared to say, ‘No, it’s not a very abusable drug. Nine percent of anybody will do something stupid.’ But that number is now [something like] 40 percent.” They argue that state and local governments are setting up legal regimes without sufficient public-health protection, with some even warning that the country is replacing one form of reefer madness with another, careening from treating cannabis as if it were as dangerous as heroin to treating it as if it were as benign as kombucha.

Users or former users I spoke with described lost jobs, lost marriages, lost houses, lost money, lost time. Foreclosures and divorces. Weight gain and mental-health problems. And one other thing: the problem of convincing other people that what they were experiencing was real. A few mentioned jokes about Doritos, and comments implying that the real issue was that they were lazy stoners. Others mentioned the common belief that you can be “psychologically” addicted to pot, but not “physically” or “really” addicted. The condition remains misunderstood, discounted, and strangely invisible, even as legalization and white-marketization pitches ahead.

Not Safe For The Children: Friends Who Gave Children Weed

Leave The Kids Alone, Dope Fiends!

The media has been spreading the unscientifically proven “health benefits” of marijuana FOR CHILDREN for years.  Just a quick search on the internet shows many stories.  Once a positive story appears, it is taken as fact.  Forever.  It’s all propaganda designed by the government to take your children from you – eventually.

Stoned Mom Dances, Blows Weed Smoke At 3-Year Old Daughter

The result of all this is adults are giving marijuana in all forms to their children.

It reminds me of two very disturbing events in my own life.  I had a friend in the 1990s who was a stoner.  She was in her late 30s at the time.   She was married with two little kids.  She called me every evening and talked my ear off.

At the time I was mourning the loss of my mother so my friend’s company and frequent phone calls were welcome.  Besides, she took me to my very first Catholic mass which I have loved since.  That’s another story, though.

I finally broke off our friendship:  I witnessed her smoking a joint while dancing around her little girl who was sitting on a small chair in the middle of the room while her mother danced a circle around her.  She even blew marijuana smoke in the girl’s face.   Then, they immediately got in their car and drove off.

To my eternal shame, I didn’t inform her (anti-marijuana) husband or call the police.

Stoned Musicians Laughing At Almost-Asphyxiated Child

Another time, in the 1970s, a group of musician friends, all guys, were smoking a giant ‘spliff’ at our apartment.  I didn’t have any, like usual.  Everyone was laughing it up.  Except me.

To my horror and shame a guy named David gave his 5-year-old son the spliff and egged him on to try it.  He did.  I could tell he’d done this before.  He coughed, hacked, couldn’t catch his breath.  Then, the little guy turned all red and then purplish!

I’m ashamed that I didn’t call the police.  Neither did I get mad and kick them out.  I heard shortly afterward that David’s wife took the kids and moved out of state.

QUACK SCIENCE:  Children Treated For Epilepsy With CBD Oil

THERE IS NO GOOD CLINICAL INFORMATION ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ANY FORM OF MARIJUANA FOR THE TREATMENT OF EPILEPSY.  Dr. Amy Brooks-Kayal, Chief of Pediatric Neurology, University of Colorado.

California Law

Giving (as opposed to selling) marijuana to a minor 14 years of age or older carries a penalty of:

  • three, four, or five years in state prison.1

All other violations of Health and Safety Code 11361 are punishable by:

  • three, five, or seven years in state prison.2

To be clear, this longer term applies when you:

  • Sell marijuana to a minor of any age,
  • Induce a minor of any age to use marijuana,
  • Use a minor of any age to transport, sell or give away marijuana, or
  • Give or offer marijuana to a minor under 14.

The exception is medical marijuana.

Suicide, Anxiety and Panic Disorders Linked To Marijuana

Marijuana can cause severe, uncontrollable panic attacks.  I know this from experience (read my ‘About’ page).  I believe it changed my brain chemistry.  I was 17.

If left untreated with legitimate medications like antidepressants, suicide ideation and attempts at suicide may result.

While he’s kicked the other vices, he still drinks and smokes cannabis liberally. And he’s turned the latter recreation into the basis for something like method-cooking.
