7 April 2013 - When Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh
left the Channel 4 studios in London she was seen wearing a pencil skirt adorned with a big cannabis leaf.
The 31-year-old singer had been filming Alan Carr’s Grand National Spectacular, a one-off show, celebrating Channel 4′s first broadcast of the Grand National.
In 2007 Kimberley admitted smoking pot, after she was caught on camera holding a spliff during a New Years Eve party at a friend's home.
27 November 2013 - Mark Wahlberg, last seen sharing joints with a cartoon bear that sounds like Peter Griffin, will soon be making a stoner series all of his own. Teaming up with his producer buddies Rob Weiss and Steve Levinson (the team behind How To Make It In America and Entourage), Wahlburg's new project, Happy Tree, is cannabis comedy backdropped by the progressive developments in Washington and Colorado recently.
The shows protagonist will be a corporate attorney who has a nervous breakdown, and becomes the unlikely proponent of the legalization movement in California. Although being the first state in the US to allow medicinal marijuana, it is lagging behind in the legalization front, and for many is a firm favourite for the next state to tip over the edge into the new exciting world of legal marijuana.
Following in the footsteps of Showtime's Weed's, the booming business of mainstream marijuana media is bringing the intimidating world of weed into the living rooms of those who would never otherwise confront the much-discussed plant. A necessary part of the war on the war on weed!
8 October 2012 - Neil Young, the legendary American singer/songwriter gave up alcohol and marijuana last year, and was at first unsure as to whether or not he would be up to his craft without his regular muses.
When asked by The Guardian about writing out from under the influence he said:
"I was never really worried about it, other than I was curious about it, in a day-to-day way. I'd go, 'Wow, I've not written a song in a long time. This is very different.' I didn't know at the time what was going to happen so I was discovering it, and now I've discovered that it doesn't matter."
Ironically, Young's next album could end up his most mind-altering. He not-so-subtly named Psychedelic Pill features some of his longest jams, including a 28-minute track called Driftin' Back.
