In case you haven’t heard, disgraced TV chef Paula Deen is back.
Deen, 67, is being given a second chance by corporate sponsors after she was unceremoniously dumped by the Food Network for being racially naive in these changing times.
“I’ve learned a lot,” said Deen in a cover story of this week’s People magazine.
“I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out,” she said, referring to gay NFL draft prospect Michael Sam.
Deen continued: “He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying.”
An enterprising Girl Scout who set up shop outside a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco sold 117 boxes of cookies in 2 hours.
The reason for the whopping cookie sales is simple: the THC in marijuana boosts Dopamine in the brain. The increase in Dopamine gives weed smokers the munchies for cookies and other sweets.
Some might see gorging on cookies as a harmless side effect of weed smoking. But a recent study shows that traffic accidents have increased 300% in cities where marijuana is legal.
It is a known fact that marijuana leads to decreased attention span and increased anxiety, psychosis, and depression in users.
