Dear New Zealand, YOU ROCK!!!
The land of the kiwis just became one of our new favorite places on the planet as it is set to become the latest country to legalize same-sex marriage!
Hundreds of supporters gathered in screening rooms to watch and celebrate as the historic Marriage Equality Bill was passed with 77 votes to 44!
Labour MP Louisa Wall (pictured above) was
one of THE key figure behind the bill and had a short but sweet message after the HUGE victory:
“In our society the meaning of marriage is universal - it's a declaration of love and commitment to a special person.”
As always, there were still people who opposed the legalization of same-sex marriage, but Customs Minister Maurice Williamson told the haters to chill out, saying:

Jeremy Irons has been in a questionable position since he voiced his concerns on the legalization of same-sex marriage on HuffPost Live.
But the actor, whose father-marrying-son soundbite — WTF, right?? — has now been heard round the world, took to his official website to post an open letter regarding his prior comments. And, as it happens, it turns out Jeremy is far from anti-gay.
Ch-ch-check out his letter (below):

Believe it or not, squares, but hemp is actually a VERY versatile material!
Now, Kentucky farmers might be able to grow hemp for a variety of products — because a vote passed the state Senate on Thursday! It isn't just some hippie material, and it has a lot of promise as an industry. That is, if the skepticism from the governor and Kentucky State Police don't ruin the chances completely!
Still, the latest 31-6 vote is very promising and could make Kentucky among the first in the nation to legalize the crop, potentially creating thousands of hemp-related jobs growing and processing the plant's fiber and seeds.
The problem is, people are afraid of it because it's a relative to marijuana!

Ever since two major victories in 2012, the marijuana legalization campaign will only continue to expand in 2013.
The two victories, legalization in Colorado and Washington, have paved the way for other states to feel confident in passing their own laws.
More states could propose full legalization on ballot measures in 2014 or 2016.

We'd normally say that we don't even know how this is humanly possible!
But if ANYONE is capable of this kind of feat, it really WOULD be Snoop Dogg!
Oh wait, excuse us: Snoop LION!
The rapper-turned-self-proclaimed-reggae-reincarnation-of-Bob Marley is obviously very pleased about the news that Washington state legalized the recreational use of marijuana, and in celebration of its first day allowed, hit up Reddit yesterday to not only reveal how MUCH he actually indulges in the greenery, but also with whom and if he thinks the drug should be taxed!
Here are some HIGHlights:

Salty tears stream down our cheeks in such bliss, as last night's election proves that so many Americans are tolerant, fair human beings who believe love can be shared between ANYONE, regardless of gender!!!
Not only did President Obama secure his second term as POTUS, questions concerning legalization of same sex marriage were APPROVED by popular vote in Maine, Maryland and Washington!
This is the first time any pro-gay marriage propositions have passed by popular vote in the USA.
YES YES YES!
