We admit our knowledge of Whoopi Goldberg, marijuana edibles and menstruation is practically zilch. Knowledge of a subject, however, (as we’re learning from the current presidential campaign) is not necessarily a requirement for commenting on said subject. With that in mind, we’re sure you’ll be glad to know Whoopi Goldberg has launched a new line of marijuana products—all of which are marketed specifically for women experiencing menstrual discomfort.
Again, this is a start-up, so none of Whoopi’s Signature Line of medical cannabis products have passed a Dr. Oz test, nor endorsed as safe by Food Babe. Whoopi’s partner, Maya Elisabeth—the founder of Om Edibles, has won seven High Times Cannabis Cup awards.
So, there’s that. This new endeavor is chronicled by writer David Bienenstock, a self-described “longtime marijuana journalist.” We’ve been called a lot of things, but never a “marijuana journalist.”
Oregon Sheriff Investigated
A sheriff involved in the Oregon standoff is facing legal troubles of his own, and he may lose his state certificate. The armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge was in Harney County, but Grant County sheriff Glenn Palmer faces 10 charges of violating standards for police officers in dealings with the occupiers. One complaint said his conduct put the safety of residents in jeopardy. Palmer has moved to set up a legal defense fund.
As for those already charged for their role in the Oregon occupation, Ammon Bundy, his brother and three co-defendants are asking a judge to prevent U.S. marshals from flying them in "ping-pong'' fashion between two federal jurisdictions for prosecution in two states in two separate cases at the same time. They are scheduled to appear in Nevada on April 13 for arraignment on federal charges for their part in an armed standoff at the Bundy ranch in 2014.
