Spoiler Report: Virtual Reality Porn Is Finally Here, More

Pre-weekend wake and takes.

Medical Experts Say We Should Decriminalize All Drug Use and Possession
A group convened by John Hopkins University and U.K. medical journal The Lancet to discuss the failings of the global War on Drugs concluded that current policies and attitudes toward drug use "directly and indirectly contribute to lethal violence, disease, discrimination, forced displacement, injustice and the undermining of people’s right to health." This comes only weeks before the United Nations is slated to discuss current world drug policies. [Washington Post]

Interactive Virtual Reality Porn Is Finally Here and Isn't Insanely Expensive
Online purveyors of pics and vids of naked peeps, PornHub, teamed up with virtual reality firm BaDoinkVR (what?) to bring VR porn to the masses. All you need is a phone and a cardboard VR headset. [VICE]

The Inevitable Rise of Corporate Cannabis
The rules, regulations, and best practices of the legal cannabis industry in America are being written and re-written on a daily basis. If new rules in Colorado and Oregon take effect, it could set a dangerous precedent. Reportedly, “The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board this week introduced a rule that will allow investors from around the U.S. to help finance the state’s exploding legal marijuana industry. Oregon approved a similar practice last month, and Colorado is expected to follow suit, eliminating its two-year residency requirement for financiers.” A "Starbucks of weed" might not be so far off after all.

Pennsylvania Still No Closer to Legal Medical Marijuana Market
Lawmakers are learning that it takes more than just putting words on paper to pass meaningful legislation. After passing an initial bill last week, state legislators keep trying to squeeze in last minute adjustments, according to local media, "some of the changes could be so problematic that they could unnecessarily delay getting medical marijuana into patients' hands."

Musicians Still Love Weed, Weed Is Still Illegal
Rapper Twista was arrested before a show in Indiana while blazing down in a Rolls-Royce. The show was cancelled. And former lead singer of defunct, L.A.-based hardcore band Rotting Out was busted with 70 pounds of weed and nearly 1,000 jars of hash oil in Ohio, a state where weed could actually be legal depending on how voters are feeling this fall.
