Philadelphia PA – Mayor Jim Kenney Recommends Legal Marijuana

Philadelphia’s current mayor Jim Kenney, made a statement recently endorsing the legalization of Marijuana. This was in response to police terrorists’ arrest of twenty two individuals in a recent marijuana bust. Philly Smoke Session hosted a pot party.

Twenty two people were arrested and fifty pounds of pot was seized. Over two hundred people attended this party. Philly Smoke Session hosted this party in a warehouse that later violated fire codes.

Local gestapo planned for two months to raid this pot party.

“I just think the amount of resources that were put into it may have been a little overkill. The real solution is to legalize it in the state of Pennsylvania, as they did in Colorado, [so] we won’t have to use police resources in these kinds of activities.”

Fifty thousand dollars was seized and one hundred seventy five people were detained then released.

University of Utah – Denies Lung Transplant Over Pot Use

Riley Hancey a nineteen year old from Utah was denied a life saving lung transplantation. His denial was based off the fact he had smoked marijuana. He only allegedly smoked marijuana once in previous twelve months.

He was denied by the University of Utah Hospital after he tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol.

“does not transplant organs in patients with active alcohol, tobacco or illicit drug use or dependencies until these issues are addressed, as these substances are contraindicated for a transplant.”

He will need to remain in Philadelphia for several months to recover. Ironicially, Riley was prescribed a synthetic form of tetrahydrocannabinol, Marinol, to increase his appetite and help him to gain weight.
