UPDATE 2/2/2012: Basically the hotness that is Armie Hammer tells TMZ, “Don’t Mess With Texas!” Moreover the Lone Ranger star says he’ll fully dish on the baked goods debacle that landed him under arrest near the Mexican border last November when his 90 day gag won’t threaten his legal defenses…Ride ‘em cowboy.
Lone Ranger star, Armie Hammer is due to saddle-up alongside Johnny Depp‘s Tonto within the next few weeks here in New Mexico.
Come to find out this past November The Social Network breakout spent approximately one full day in a Texas jail before posting his $1,000 bail, after a “crack” K-9 detective sniffed out the presence of marijuana in his vehicle.
According to the AP, arrest records show that Hammer had 0.02 ounces of marijuana, three medicinal marijuana cookies and one brownie when arrested Nov. 20 in Sierra Blanca, a few miles from the Mexican border (approx. 100 mi. from NM).
It is also being reported that El Paso’s district attorney will not prosecute because a felony requires more than 4 ounces of actual marijuana.
The county attorney could pursue lesser charges, since the case is going back to the local sheriff, but Hammer’s lawyer Kent Schaffer says no charges have been presented.
Hammer joins Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg in being busted on pot charges in the same Texas town.
I don’t have to be gay to support basic and equal human rights, just as I don’t have to partake to know that medical marijuana is a politically vilified, holistic, medicinal alternative to the big money market of pharmaceuticals that can be a very real threat to overall health and well being.
Hint: When the list of side effects is longer than the list of benefits and includes DEATH and/or increased risk of suicide PAUSE, rewind, STOP!
As a chronic pain sufferer myself I’ve been legally prescribed some of the most sought after pain meds on the market – used ever so sparingly and now not at all (WARNING: NSAIDS are baby killers), the effects of America’s legal narcotics have hit home & heart far harder than naturally herbal remedies ever could (and that’s coming from a fatherless child whose dad was an abandoning, deadbeat and dope peddler – drug mule much).
I also don’t have to escape the throws of agoraphobia to know that an event of this kind generates tourism dollars for my beloved home state – GO NEW MEXICO!

Local news, and the social net are all abuzz with both outrage and outcries from the Albuquerque community, who seem ready to hang middle school teacher Kathi Hunter for her hefty crop of “medicinal” greens.
In the very same broadcast after the breaking news of Hunter’s arrest, condemnation, banishment, etc., etc., one of the next stories straight off the teleprompter was some fluff liner about the (and I quote), “antics” of “actress” Lindsay Lohan (tra, la, la, la, la, ha, ha antics, tee, hee, hee).
So kiddies, feel free to watch mediawhores at their finest like Parasite Hilton (allegedly) smuggle coca in her cocha across international borders; Coca Lohan drive drunk, fail court ordered drug treatment/testing, etc., etc., and Kardashian Family post porn gazillion dollar payoffs.

We have violent crime parolees, double digit DWI offenders, child molesters, hard core narcotics dealers, corrupt public officials and cracked out chitlins addicted to the surplus of your Nana’s Rx cabinet walking our streets but throw away the key on this memaw looking pot head.
Veteran New Mexico chocolatier Scott Van Rixel has applied to trademark “Bhang, the original cannabis chocolate,” for his premium chocolate, medicinal confectionery.
New Mexico will be missing out on the buck from the Bhang because state laws currently prohibit the production of marijuana into the chocolate delivery system as developed by Van Rixel and his industry partner Robert Martin, Ph.D.
Furthermore because of Federal interstate commerce laws when the pair are basically forced to abscond from the state to manufacture their recipe elsewhere it won’t even be available to New Mexico where it is approved for administration as medical treatment for a long list of ailments and diseases.
Much ado about red tape which reminds me of my favorite Val Kilmer performance ever where he spins the tale of how the Microsoft trademark like “Bhang, the original cannabis chocolate,” has its origin in Nuevo México who’s binding it up and kicking it to Cali.
The antioxidant rich, medicinal stuff may not hit the market making Van Rixel & Co. the Bill Gates of reffer meds, but it’s a shame to see a good business man/plan have to go.
