California cannabis sellers want respect: Less ‘Cheech and Chong’ more three-piece suits


He was dressed in a three-piece suit. So Chris Coggan nearly went unnoticed when he dropped by a San Diego City Council member’s office last year to do some lobbying on marijuana laws.

“An aide came to reception and asked, ‘Where’s the pot guy?’” said Coggan, co-founder of Therapy Tonics and Provisions,…

Prince Estate Reveals Big-Screen Concert With Unreleased Material

Prince‘s video likeness will appear onstage April 21st with a live band at the Target Center in Minneapolis. The event, Prince: Live on the Big Screen will include video and audio of “remastered and never-before-released” material. Prince’s longtime collaborators and “very special guests” will contribute to the concert, according to Prince’s estate.

Prince: Live on the Big Screen takes place during a four-day event honoring the memory of Prince, who died on April 21st, 2016 at age 57. Tickets to the Target Center event go on sale starting January 20th at 10 a.m. through the arena’s box office. The estate has released select footage of the superstar above.

Interest in Prince’s remarkable career has increased since his untimely death. Paisley Park sent an exhibit of Prince memorabilia to London last October, and a photo book titled Prince: A Private View, featuring a forward from Beyoncé, came out the same month. Showtime aired the rare, long out-of-print Sign o’ the Times concert film in the U.S. in September. The Paisley Park estate also hosted a battle of the bands in September, awarding the winning group a “mentorship session” with members of Prince’s former backing band New Power Generation.

Despite all the activity, Prince’s business affairs are mired in legal issues. Last July, a Minnesota judge rescinded much of Universal Music Group’s $31 million deal with the Prince estate after determining that it did not include distribution rights to the singer’s music recorded before 1996. Those rights are still owned by Prince’s former label, Warner Bros., until 2021.

Video: CupcakKe – “Duck Duck Goose”


Chicago rapper CupcakKe has released a new music video for her track “Duck Duck Goose.” In typical CupcakKe fashion, the video is lightly pornographic and very playful, featuring the rapper messing around with a whole bunch of dildos (it is, obviously, NSFW). Watch the phallus-heavy clip below.

“Duck Duck Goose” is the second video off…
