Marijuana lollipops for sale on Lakers parade route

In addition to the sales of Lakers paraphernalia and water, some surprising entrepreneurs took to the parade route to sell their wares.

Among them was a mobile truck, Weed World Candies.com, selling marijuana lollipops in hues of orange and blue. (The truck itself is green with a photo mural of young women in bikinis sorting marijuana leaves.)

The assortment included brands of marijuana such as OG Kush and Grand Daddy Perp. The truck’s owner, Bilal Muhammad, said he was recently forced to shut down his store in West Hollywood and had taken his business on the road.

Customers approaching his truck were asked if they had a prescription card allowing them to purchase marijuana and then were handed a free lollipop.

“It’s been working out very well,” he said of business before driving away as police became visible in the distance.

So far, Muhammad was able to work without interruption from police.

I would like to applaud Mr. Bilal Muhammad on his entrepreneurial spirit. Thank you Bilal for supplying your fine THC infused candies to those in need. Oh, and I thought this line in the article was hilarious..."“It’s been working out very well,” he said of business before driving away as police became visible in the distance."

It's the sixties all over again.


Ron Artest is the greatest defender in the NBA

Ron Artest showed the Celtics what defense is all about.

Ron Artest had Paul Pierce COMPLETE FRUSTRATED.

The Celtics is a broken team. They are now cellar dwellers.

Ron Atest for President!!

Oh man I wish I was at the parade! I would of totally got one! And yes, thank you Muhammad for letting people get the medicine they need.

It should be noone else's business of why someone smokes or uses medical marijuana. That is for the person, the doctor and the people distributing.


Alcohol/Tobacco/Guns/Pharmaceutical pills = Legal and kills countless numbers of people

Marijuana- No way to overdose on and there is no evidence that it is bad for you, but rather OVERWHELMING studies show that it is POSITIVE to a persons health for a VARIETY of different elements.

Let's start telling the truth to kids; you smoke cigarettes, you drink alcohol, swallow legal pills and buy your legal guns; in the end all these things kill you.

But marijuana is illegal? Give me a break, save your propaganda for your zombies.



just legalize it...this is getting silly.
We are all free citizens able to make up our own mind on what to put in our bodies.

Grand Daddy PURP as in PURPLE....not PERP.

Also known as dealing street drugs.

“It’s been working out very well,” he said of business before driving away as police became visible in the distance.

Must be legal if you see the police and slither away!

Mr. Bilal Muhammad, I'm so glad you were kind enough to provide your name along with the description of your truck and previous business location so that the city attorney can make sure they nail the right dude. Survival of the fittest. Slither of the Lizard Master.
