We've all been there, buddy.

This terrifically sad sight is a thirsty wild leopard that wandered into a rural Indian village and proceeded to get his feline face stuck in a pot.

Don't worry, there's a happy ending.

The Guardian has more details:

The thirsty feline got into a spot of bother when it got its head trapped in a metal pot after venturing into a North Indian village looking for water.

For six hours the leopard stoically endured the unwanted utensil as curious villagers looked on, unable to help the cat out.

Eventually, forest officials managed to tranquilize the leopard and free it from its potty prison.

It was then released back into the wild.

And yes, there is a video of the poor cat

Does anyone else think of this?

George Zimmer comes out in favor of marijuana legalization.

You're going to love the way your feel on weed, he guarantees it.

Men's Warehouse founder George Zimmer has come out in favor of marijuana legalization in a big way, admitting that he regularly partakes of the drug that has seen sweeping support over the past few years.

He called the war against marijuana "the biggest con ever perpetrated" in an interview with CNBC:

"I've been smoking marijuana on a regular basis for about 50 years," Zimmer said to CNBC, before joking, "As you can see, it's really impacted me in a negative way."

Zimmer gave the keynote speech Friday at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo in Los Angeles, pushing for legalization. "Everybody in the country knows what the truth here is, except the 535 people we elect to make these decisions in Washington, D.C.," he told attendees. "It's astounding."

He's throwing his support behind an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in California next year, just as he supported the proposition that failed in 2010. No matter what form legalization might take, Zimmer said, "I think it's important that we protect limited home cultivation without any government licensing, so whether it's one plant or 10 plants, I don't know, but I think that's very important."

Who knows how much leverage he can throw in the ring for the issue as a living meme, but he'll surely give it all he's got. Unless he gets distracted by some mild psychoactive drug.

We're not sure if you know this, but Snoop Dogg really likes marijuana.

So much so that he announced the launching of a new media platform from TechCrunch's Disrupt Conference Sept. 21.

D-O-double-G said the platform, called Merry Jane, will be many things, but most importantly a celebration of all things cannabis.

According to The Verge writing from Disrupt:

It sounds like the site will combine a traditional editorial voice with consumer-oriented features like a dispensary mapping service and a buying guide for marijuana-related products.

...The site doesn't officially open until October, but Snoop and Chung are giving 420 users per day — yes, really — access to its beta version until then. They've also shared an example of the kind of content they'll have on the site. Deflowered is a "groundbreaking interview series that will profile innovative people as they enjoy cannabis," and its first episode stars two former Marines talking about post-military life and alternative medicine. "After watching where the cannabis industry is headed, I wanted to create a platform that will take this movement further," said Snoop. "Merry Jane is a game-changing platform for pop culture."

Though the site is in beta, they're already released the first of the 'Deflowered' series on their YouTube channel featuring two former marines discussing how medical marijuana has helped them treat their PTSD.

A scientific study says smoking weed makes it less likely you'll get obese.

You know you need less guilt in your life, so along comes science to give you the go ahead for picking up that bong.

A study that came out earlier this year proclaims a whole lot of good news for those who find recreation in a cannabis variety.

Essentially, the conclusion says that, within the confines of their data, marijuana use leads to a lower body mass index. Meaning, pot makes you skinnier.

The AV Club does a splendid job of summarizing the findings:

the brilliant researchers found that in their sample population—786 Nunavik Inuits whose health data were surveyed in 2004—marijuana use also corresponded with a lower incidence of diabetes. The authors of the study do caution that some "caveats must be considered when interpreting their results." In other words, you should definitely smoke dope right now because it would be irresponsible not to fill your body with that nourishing, disease-fighting devil weed.

You'd think this sort of habit would pile on the pounds, but don't worry, science has accounted for that. In their study, the researchers from the eminent and infallible CHU De Québec Research Center write, "Frequent cannabis use is associated with higher caloric intake, but investigations into overweight/obesity have yielded inconsistent results." See? The results are inconsistent, so go ahead and eat as much as you want—but only if you ingest plenty of that wholesome, slimming giggle grass first.

So there you go! It's never too late for beach body 2015 and science has the weight loss tip of a lifetime.

Shakespeare smoked pot. Surprise!

Out, out damned pot!

I see Queen Dab hath been with thee...

Now is the winter of our spliff's content.

These are just a few of the pun-laden headlines you're sure to see following The Independent's report about the cannabis residue found in Shakespeare's pipes

State-of-the-art forensic technology from South Africa has been used to try and unravel the mystery of what was smoked in tobacco pipes found in the Stratford-upon-Avon garden of William Shakespeare.

Neither of the pipes with c0caine came from Shakepeare's garden. But four of the pipes with cannabis did.

Results of this study (including 24 pipe fragments) indicated cannabis in eight samples, nicotine in at least one sample, and in two samples definite evidence for Peruvian c0caine from coca leaves.

Shakespeare may have been aware of the deleterious effects of c0caine as a strange compound. Possibly, he preferred cannabis as a weed with mind-stimulating properties.

So, it turns out that the bard liked to get his smoke on. And are you at all surprised?

Considering the wild fantasies contained in A Midsummer's Night Dream or The Tempest, you could see how some herbal inspiration infused itself to his quill.

Nick Lachey wants to legalize pot in ohio and grow it.

Nick Lachey's days of burning up the charts may be over, but he's not against burning other things.

According to The Cannabist, his next business venture is trying to see if the grass is greener on the other side of legalization.

Ohio resident and former boy band star Nick Lachey is among five investors in one of 10 marijuana grow centers that would be created across the state under a proposed ballot issue.

The ballot issue would limit the growing to specific locations where groups of investors financing the operations own or have the option to buy property.

ResponsibleOhio estimates the initiative would generate about $21.5 million in annual tax revenue for Summit County and its townships and municipalities.

That's not the end of the story for Lachey's marijuana empire and Ohio's legalization. Buzzfeed News is reporting that many opponents exist of the initiative and not just because of its pot content. The amendment sounds like it would keep any future weed business in the hands of a very select few, of which Lachey hopes to be a part.

The proposed constitutional amendment would restrict all commercial growth and extraction of weed to 10 specific farms — farms that are owned and operated by the investors bankrolling the effort to pass the initiative. That means the entire legal marijuana industry in Ohio would be controlled by a group of wealthy businesspeople, or what those opposed to the initiative are calling a monopoly, an oligopoly, or a cartel. The rest of the state would be able to apply for one of the 1,150 licenses for marijuana retail stores and testing labs, but all of the shops would need to buy their pot from a group that currently confers over conference call once a week.
