    CNN revels in pot smoke during New Year's Eve report from Denver

    CNN revels in pot smoke during New Year's Eve report from Denver
    Fox News6 hours ago


    CNN put the “J” in journalism Sunday night, with a marijuana-themed New Year’s Eve show many viewers found downright doobie-ous.

    During the beleaguered cable news network’s year-end show from Times Square, reporter Randi Kaye did several, um, “hits” from Denver, where marijuana is legal. At various points, she held a joint, lit a bong, marveled over a special gas mask used by stoners and wondered where she was.


    “This is for you, Andy!” Kaye said at one point, addressing CNN host Andy Cohen and holding a lit marijuana cigarette out to the camera.

    Cohen, the Bravo star and executive producer of the “Real Housewives” franchise, was hosting with CNN stalwart Anderson Cooper. Kathy Griffin was previously Cooper’s New Year's Eve partner, but the network dumped her after she made fun of President Trump by holding his mock severed head in a photo shoot.

    “I’m trying to remember where we are. Where am I?”

    - CNN reporter Randi Kaye

    Cohen enthusiastically praised Kaye’s report, while a smiling Cooper reminded viewers that Kaye’s high-jinx was all above board, even if a bit unseemly.

    “I just want to point out that this is all legal in Colorado,” Cooper said, smiling.

    Kaye, who announced she was witnessing “New Year’s Eve, Denver-style!” did not appear to partake herself, and would not be breaking the law if she had. But she did seem disoriented at one point.

    “We’re at a dispensary called the Medicine Man!” Kaye, who sported dangling marijuana leaf earrings, said. “I’m trying to remember where we are. Where am I?”

    Kaye’s pot-themed reportage was done from a “puff, pass and paint” party, whatever that is.

    Viewers seemed split on social media: Some were appalled by the open embrace of marijuana, while others were dismayed by the network’s decision to replace Griffin with Cohen.

    CNN just keeps sinking lower and lower. Next year they will probably be featuring an opioid themed New Year's celebration.

    To me, the legalization of pot is worthy of tremendous celebration. Why? Because it's part of draining the swamp.

    I saw that and quickly turned the channel. What a cesspool.

    Now the cesspool of Californication is getting deeper...on CNN's homepage is this (*fair use...is there a thread on this?)

    Californians line up to legally buy pot



    The state's new law legalizing recreational marijuana is off to a busy first day

    (****Oh, does she look lie a sweetie...not!...they couldn't pay me to go to CO, CA, Seattle, etc. where ever mj is legal...satan's playgrounds).

    Have mixed feelings on this subject. If you live in a "FREE" country then you should be "FREE" to live your life and partake in "your" vices or whatever so long as you cause no harm to anyone. But then you are also accountable for your actions at the same time.

    Unfortunately far too many people are neither responsible and/or accountable for their actions and choices.

    I consider recreational pot, alcohol and such "natural drugs" all in the same category, both are abused and misused to the detriment of everyone. The bottom line to remember is that You Can't Fix Stupid, which is why the majority of people shouldn't mess with this kind of stuff and a lot of those folks also shouldn't be allowed to drive or cross streets by themselves.

    Pot for toking has been genetically modified to add a lot of THC. The pot of the 60's wasn't so psychoactive- much less THC, and there have been many generations of stronger strains produced: a lot of THC added over time.

    The wine of Jesus' days walking on earth did not have added alcohol. The added alcohol to adult beverages/brewed adult Kool-Aid (whatever) is not natural.

    Probably very true. I suspect that one of the reasons for all this Gluten problems that people are having these days is that wheat has been hybridized to have higher percentage of gluten today than in the past.

    Seems we humans can't leave anything well enough alone.

    CNN once again proving how very unprofessional they actually are. Just because it's legal doesn't mean that one should pollute the airwaves with it. Prostitution is legal at the Chicken Ranch but that doesn't mean the action should be broadcast. JMHO/YMMV

    Okee dokee.

    I'll admit it. Being a Wine maker-I go thru all kinds of things to make a bottle of "Adult Kool-Aid".

    First I go to the salvage yard and drain all the oil and antifreeze I can find into a stock pot, then I go buy the outdoor supply center and grab any busted outdoor furniture and old planters. I take all this home, put it in a box and run over the box with the Jeep a few times to smoosh it all together. Then I did up some grub worms and fire ants and teach them the Macarana. After all that is done I get a bottle of rubbing alcohol and mix it in then strain it thru a collander and boil it all together on the engine block of the neighbors Dodge Diesel.. After that I strain it into wine bottles, add some clarifying agents-PCP and K-Y do it pretty goo. Then I add the food coloring to make it whatever color of wine someone wants and sell it undercover at the main office of the ATF.

    So, smoking pot on camera by reporters is considered "cool" now? I suppose, just because it's legal in Colorado, what the heck? Light up!!!

    But, can you imagine the flack she'd get if she lit up a CIGARETTE????

    Even though cigarettes are legal countrywide, she'd get crunched and crucified, all live on camera!!!

    No, it’s “cool” by CNN standards. They’re trying to appeal to the “youth market” ( www.peopleofwalmart.com ) to boost their ratings and increase their viewership over the 10,000 pont again. The Maury show is higher class than CNN these days.

    She acted like a jerk.

    And they may have voted weed legal here in Ca. but almost all the towns have banned walk in stores. The only thing I see is an increase in price of 20% or better.

    Considering you get natural fermentation if you leave your fruit juice sitting around even for a few days in a warm climate, it would be a "miracle" if the wine at the Marriage attended by Jesus did not have alcohol in it - also it would not have worked for purifying water, which was a major reason why "watered - wine" was THE drink of most of the classical world.

    Areas without grapes tended to drink ale or mead; even the PURITANS didn't ban "small cider" and some "small beer" from their tables in what would eventually become the United States; they know to do so would be not only a practical impossibility because the apple juice stored over the Winter was going to ferment anyway but again would have resulted in the loss of a safe drinking source.

    Small "beers, ales and ciders" are still made here in Europe, and were THE drink given to children and adults who did not wish to become drunk; the Romans probably had a version; it is LOWER in alcohol but as a friend with a serious alcohol allergy found it - it does have 3 to 5 percent; so do some naturally brewed soft drinks.

    As for MJ, I suspect that older lady is getting a strain produced for pain relief which when you get legal stuff you can sort it better; it is NOT TRUE that ALL new strains are super-strong; they vary a huge amount depending on their purpose from recreational high as a kite to stopping nausea in cancer patients.

    One website put it very well, suggesting that only tomatoes have had as much loving attention paid to them by growers in terms of the many varieties and techniques for container growing.

    There are probably several hundred varieties now of both; just like your 2 pound Giant tomato doesn't cook up or taste the same as a tiny black Russian Krim Cherry tomato; the same is true for strains of MJ and their effects on people.

    It is a drug, not a toy; the CNN piece sounds like it was in rather bad taste, would they show the frat party drunk feasts that I'm sure going on at DC universities on New Years?

    Its all about "market position." If you are in a good position to market - and are a friend of the "connected" - then you get your own law favoring YOU.

    In thinking about that, I feel that society wouldn't of needed that/wouldn't need it if the churches were doing what they are supposed to be doing, instead of teaching "Candy-cane Gospel Lite."

    The churches have been a failure for decades. Bummer, big-time.

    The issue isn't potency, the issue is the false claim that pot is genetically modified, which was underlined in my previous post.

    14 Outrage grows over CNN's pot-infused New Year's segment

    Outrage grows over CNN's pot-infused New Year's segment
    Brian Flood
    4 hours ago

    Outrage continues to mount two days after CNN put the “J” in journalism with a marijuana-themed New Year’s Eve segment that some are already using as an excuse to smoke the Hippie Lettuce in states where it’s not currently legal.

    During the liberal cable news network’s year-end broadcast from Times Square, reporter Randi Kaye did several, um, “hits” from Denver, where marijuana is legal. At various points, she held a joint, lit a bong, marveled over a special gas mask used by stoners and wondered where she was. Kaye didn’t partake herself while on the air, but the bit was enough to appall some viewers and confuse people who might be locked up for doing the same thing.

    “CNN is trying to trademark the debauchery as its brand for New Year's Eve coverage. I mean that quite seriously,” Media Research Center President Brent Bozell said on Tuesday, while explaining that the network no longer has comic Kathy Griffin using obscenities to attract viewers. (Griffin was famously fired after she posed with a fake decapitated head made to look like that of President Donald Trump.)

    “So this year they're doing pot and getting stoned,” Bozell said.

    For much of the morning on Tuesday, The Drudge Report led its site with a story headlined: “CNN’s stoner new year! Bong lessons on news network." Meanwhile, TheBlaze spent a segment of Glenn Beck’s radio program breaking down the pot-themed report.

    “CNN … showed America how to do bong hits. Isn’t that great? It was very helpful, especially if your kids are watching,” host Pat Gray said.

    And on New Year's Day, Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted: “We’ll see how this all works out for our country. More potheads, increase in cases of schizophrenia, psychosis, more impaired driving ... as #BigWeed makes billions.”

    The story took another turn on Tuesday when WSB-TV reporter Tyisha Fernandes tweeted that 70 people were arrested when less than an ounce of marijuana was found at a house party. Since nobody claimed it, the police arrested everyone. Many people took to Twitter to point out what they described as hypocrisy between Fernandes’ report and what CNN had advocated on New Year’s Eve.

    “But yet CNN just did their whole New Years Eve coverage on a Weed Party Bus,” one user wrote, while another added, “They smoking weed on CNN tho.”

    Fernandes’ news also sparked an onslaught of people bringing race into the situation, implying that only white people are allowed to smoke pot.

    Lol @ how many people are still incarcerated for marijuana crimes while CNN is smoking weed on tv.

    Imagine you in jail for weed and turn on CNN to see people celebrating NYE on a party bus full of weed and Anderson Cooper giggling.

    This is why white people should have no control over any drugs. CNN can do this shit but I could be busted and thrown into jail if the ounce of my weed looks like three kernels of popcorn. Either I'm burning down the marijuana shops so everybody can equally be high https://t.co/R0SkQNMXfo

    It’s crazy they’re smoking weed on CNN but people are still locked up for it 🤔

    CNN is getting high on marijuana for New Years. What a desperate attempt for ratings. "The Most Trusted Name in News." Yeah, cause everyone trusts potheads. Nice job promoting drug usage, @CNN, Cannabis News Network. pic.twitter.com/zBZy8GS3UX

    Let 'em keep going. They're only driving more nails in their coffin, and with any luck they'll drag others down with them.

    ok, i'll clarify, as well. todays' pot is genetically modified. strains have been cross-bred with other strains so much that original genetics are difficult to identify.

    Yes, pot has been selectively cross bred to increase potency, but THAT'S NOT WHAT GENETIC MODIFICATION IS. Although the sources you listed mention genetics, neither says anything about genetic modification. There IS a difference.

    Here's what genetic modification is:
    A genetically modified organism (GMO) is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques (i.e., a genetically engineered organism). GMOs are used to produce many medications and genetically modified foods and are widely used in scientific research and the production of other goods. The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism', defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").

    A more specifically defined type of GMO is a "transgenic organism." This is an organism whose genetic makeup has been altered by the addition of genetic material from an unrelated organism. This should not be confused with the more general way in which "GMO" is used to classify genetically altered organisms, as typically GMOs are organisms whose genetic makeup has been altered without the addition of genetic material from an unrelated organism.

    The first genetically modified mouse was created in 1974, and the first plant was produced in 1983.[1]

    I have not been able to find any reference to pot genetic code (DNA) being added to, taken away from or modified, which would be required for a plant to be truly "genetically modified". Selective breeding, on the other hand, is a well known and natural process, and has been used by pot seed producers and growers to enhance certain desired attributes, like higher THC. That's what the first article you linked to is talking about.
