The indictment explains that CanaFarma’s alleged scheme can be traced back to October 2018. In 2018, the duo, via a straw purchaser, initiated acquiring a dormant Canadian shell company. A few months later, Palatnik and Fargesen reached out to individuals identified as “Co-conspirator 1” (CC-1) and “Co-conspirator 2,” (CC-2). The filing explains that Palatnik and Fargesen informed CC-1 and CC-2 that they had a pool of investors overseas who would fund their idea. The idea was to create a company founded on hemp-derived products. And as soon as they get the funds, they will be up and running.
On the 12th of October, 2021 – Singaporean courts issued a death warrant on the life of Omar Yacob Bamadhaj. Was Omar a murderer, a depraved rapist, or any combination of villainous traits? No – he was caught with 1,000 grams of plant matter that happens to get you high.
Related to its anti-inflammatory properties, cannabis is also known to relieve body pains and soreness derived from working out too much. CBD may reduce pain by influencing endocannabinoid receptor activity, interacting with neurotransmitters in the nervous system, and reducing inflammation. It’s said to be effective in lessening acute pain, pain caused by twisted muscles, and chronic pain.
A South Carolina elementary school teacher faces criminal charges and has lost her job after a pupil in her class pulled a package of cannabis edibles from a box of treats intended as prizes to reward students. Victoria Farish Weiss, 27, of Lexington County, South Carolina, was arrested on Friday morning after turning herself in to authorities, according to media reports.
Weiss allegedly told authorities that she had brought a bag of candy from a Dollar General store to the classroom to fill a box used as prizes for students, according to a report from the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, as cited by a local television station. On September 23, two students were permitted to pull prizes from the box. One of the pupils selected a Dum Dums lollipop, while the other grabbed a package labeled “Stony Patch Kids,” believing they were Sour Patch Kids.
Weiss told the student with the Stony Patch Kids to choose something else. However, the student still ended up with a pack of the marijuana gummies, according to a statement from Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon posted to Facebook on Friday.
“Detectives confirmed during interviews that Weiss took the pack of edibles from the student and told him to pick something else from the box,” Koon said. “The student went back to the box and happened to grab another pack of edibles.”
After he received the prize, the unidentified student went to an after-school daycare program and asked a teacher to help him open the package of Stony Patch Kids. According to a police report, the daycare teacher noticed that the candy was not actually Sour Patch Kids, declined to open the package for him, and called the student’s school, Rocky Creek Elementary School, to report the incident instead.
The assistant principal at the school then went to Weiss’ classroom and found more of the marijuana edibles in the prize box. When the assistant principal confronted Weiss about the edibles, she became “hysterical,” according to the police report.
“No student ate any of the products,” Koon noted.
Search of Teacher’s Home Reveals More Edibles
Deputies then obtained a search warrant for the teachers’ home, where “investigators found packs of edibles similar to those the student picked from the box in Weiss’ classroom,” Koon said. Each package of cannabis gummies contained 350 milligrams of THC, according to the product label.
Although much of the nation has enacted cannabis policy reforms, South Carolina is one of the few states that still have no provisions for legal cannabis, even for medicinal purposes. Additionally, the Lexington County Schools employee handbook specifies that workers are not permitted “to manufacture, distribute, dispense, possess, be under the influence of or use on or in the workplace any illicit drug such as a narcotic drug, hallucinogenic drug, amphetamine, barbiturate, marijuana or any other controlled substance.” According to school district officials, Weiss is no longer employed by the Lexington School District One as of October 13.
“The safety of our students is our top priority,” said Dr. Greg Little, the superintendent of the school. “It is unacceptable for a staff member to potentially threaten the wellbeing of a child. We will continue to work to ensure all of our children have a safe environment to learn and grow. Rocky Creek Elementary has a sterling reputation which will not be tarnished by the actions of one person.”
After a warrant was issued for Weiss’ arrest, she turned herself in to the sheriff’s department on Friday. She was detained for a time at the Lexington County Detention Center before being released on a personal recognizance bond. Weiss has been charged with possession of a Schedule I drug.

Going beyond most celebrity-endorsed cannabis products, Grammy Award winning artist Miguel took upon the roles of co-founder, owner and Chief Creative Director of Kalvara—a cannabis-infused drink company that takes a completely novel technological approach to infusion.
Kalvara is the maker of the patented Vessl closure—a nitrogen-powered cannabis liquid delivery device—providing a precise, consistent dose of fast-acting cannabinoids. The technology allows you to see the cannabis infusion—in action. Also, it eliminates the need for single use bottles that litter the planet.
The company calls it a “multisensory experience” because when you twist the cap, you hear the release of the pressurized nitrogen, see colorful THC liquid rush into the bottle and taste the naturally flavored beverage like a lava lamp. The rapid onset of the precise dose of THC is quickly becoming a fad as an alternative to alcohol.
“Kalvara is a game-changer,” said Miguel. “I can enjoy a fast and consistent lift wherever I am.” Miguel announced that he began working with Vessl a year ago in August 2020. His long-term interest in sustainability led him to explore brands that take new approaches. The patented Vessl device enables bottles to be reused instead of constantly throwing out single use bottles.
Each Kalvara variety comes in a 100mg five-pack, provided in several choices: Citrus Twist is sweetened with exotic monk fruit; Berry Chill comes with an additional 10mg CBD for relaxation; and Tropical Inspire adds an energy-boosting component.
Kalvara is designed to be consumed on its own over ice or with a mixer. Try replacing an alcoholic drink with it, and your body will thank you.
The nanotechnology of the pressurized Vessl closure keeps the highly bioavailable cannabis oil fresh at ambient temperatures for an increased shelf life. That means that the taste, aroma and color will not fade or oxidize. The drink is calorie-free and does not contain any sugar or preservatives.
Kalvara is available at licensed retailers in California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Ontario, with other states and Canadian provinces coming soon.
Miguel and Marijuana
In a 2015 interview with Spin, the singer-songwriter was asked about his favorite hobbies. In a list that included meditation, binge-watching documentaries and hiking. It also included smoking weed.
The singer has opened up often that he was a late bloomer to the cannabis scene. He didn’t smoke weed until later on when he was a grown adult. “I was not a part of the social scene in high school,” Miguel told The Guardian in 2015. “I wasn’t going to parties, I wasn’t drinking, I wasn’t smoking, I definitely wasn’t smoking weed, I wasn’t having sex. Late bloomer. Really late bloomer.”
In later interviews, Miguel seemed to be more of a regular consumer.
“Damn—I should’ve brought the weed with me,” Miguel told Billboard during a 2017 interview. Weed is a constant theme in Miguel’s music, and he shows off his collection of herb in the video for his 2017 song with Travis Scott, “Skywalker”—an indica-dominant strain that’s a typical favorite.
Miguel received no fewer than 12 Grammy Award nominations, a win and his last two albums debuted at number one on Billboard‘s R&B Albums Chart. The singer has worked with Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Usher, J. Cole, Travis Scott, and A$AP Rocky, among many others, and has proven himself to be one of R&B’s top artists.
Miguel’s involvement in executive roles for Kalvara cements his relationship with cannabis. For more information, please visit kalvara.com and check out Kalvara on Instagram @drinkkalvara.
