Quick, what are the top two reasons that people smoke weed?
Finished? The answers are:
1. To get high.
2. To get high and relieve pain.
A new medicinal marijuana farm has just taken the fun part out of both of those.
Tikun Olam, a plantation in northern Israel, has just developed a new strain of sticky that barely has ANY tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the stuff that gets you stoned, bro.
It's called Avidekel, and is about to start clinical trials. It contains less than one percent THC, compared to their most popular strand, which sits pretty at 23 percent.
Avidekel continues to contains a 16 percent concentration of CBD, though, which is an anti-inflammatory that can offer pain relief without the high.
Here's what one of the guys who developed it said:
"It has the same scent, shape and taste as the original plant — it's all the same — but the numbing sensation that users are accustomed to has disappeared. Many of our patients who tried the new plant come back to us and say: 'You tricked me,'" because they assumed they had been given a placebo."
"We bought all these Doritos! Now what do we do with them??"
We're sure that this will be an incentive for those who want a natural remedy, but don't really like the feeling of being stoned.

We ALL had something to say about his performance at the Academy Awards.
With his blank stares and painfully obvious lack of care, none of us understood how the usually dedicated James Franco could botch up the most important night in Hollywood!
Well now our favorite overachiever–albeit sometimes a seemingly stoned one–is telling everyone what really went through his head that night.
So sit back and relax, girls and boys, because he has A LOT to say!
On what discouraged him in the first place:
It's hard to talk about because it's like assigning blame — not a fun thing to do. For three or four weeks we shot the promos and the little film that played in the opening. In the last week, when we really started focusing on the script for the live show and did a run-through, I said to the producer, I don't know why you hired me, because you haven't given me anything. I just don't think this stuff's going to be good.
On being forced to wear drag:
I was so pissed about that I was deliberately going to fall onstage and hopefully my dress would fall off or something — they couldn't blame that on me; I was in high heels. The plan had been that I was going to sing as Cher and then Cher was going to come out onstage; that got axed when Cher and the song from 'Burlesque' weren't nominated. I told them, 'Look, this is the thing people are going to talk about, the images they will take away from the show.' [Eventually] I just didn't want to fight anymore, even when they said, 'You'll come out as Marilyn Monroe. It'll be funny.' Me in drag is not funny.
On the criticism:
As far as having low energy or seeming as though I wasn't into it or was too cool for it, I thought, Okay Anne is going the enthusiastic route. I've been trained as an actor to respond to circumstances, to the people I'm working with, and not force anything. So I thought I would be the straight man and she could be the other, and that's how I was trying to do those lines. I felt kind of trapped in that material. I felt, This is not my boat. I'm just a passenger, but I'm going down and there's no way out.
Ahh, okay, so that explains it a little better.
Well, we can't speak for Anne, but WE forgive you, James!
Next time just make sure you stay in the nominee's pool!

This is truly one of the most sickening things that we've ever heard.
A 28 year old Philadelphia man named John Joe Thomas has been charged with first degree murder after he admitted to police that he stoned a 70 year old gay man named Murray Seidman to death.
According to authorities, Thomas read the Old Testament and became convinced that homosexuals should be stoned to death. After Seidman allegedly made repeated homosexual advances on him, he beat the man about ten times with a sock he filled with rocks.
It's currently unclear what kind of relationship he had with Seidman, but the two apparently spent every day together, and the younger man was the sole executor of his will.
Check out a news story regarding the matter (above).
So disturbing, bizarre, and tragic.
Our thoughts go out to Seidman's family and loved ones, and we sincerely hope that Thomas comes to understand the gravity of what he did.
We forgot how HANDSOME he was when he was younger!
Check out (above and below) these vintage pictures of Jeff Bridges, which he recently shared with Elle Magazine!
He says about that time in his life:
"I had a great '70s. Today, being a parent with three daughters, I look back on it thinking, Oh, man, the things I did! You always hear people say that having kids changes everything, but then you have your own and realize just how true it is. In The Big Lebowski, the Dude is always stoned, and I was worried the effect seeing their dad like that would have on my kids."
Ha! Don't worry, we're that they understood that you were just acting!
But thanks for sharing the memories, bb!
That's why grandma was hanging with little Levi!
Matteo McConaughey appears to be up to old tricks again!
