Rachel Lehnardt Update: Sex-In-Bathroom ‘Naked Twister’ Party Mom ‘Remorseful’

150416-rachel-lehnardt

EVANS, Ga. (WSBTV.com)— A Georgia mother accused of having sex with two teenagers during a party that involved alcohol, pot and naked Twister says she’s remorseful about what happened.
T3LzzXw
Deputies say Rachel Lenhardt, 35, hosted the party and gave drugs and alcohol to her teenage daughter and her friends.

“She was arrested for furnishing alcohol and marijuana to at least two 16-year-olds. That was not just what the AA sponsor told us, but what was told to us was also corroborated by witnesses that were in the home.”

— Capt. Steve Morris of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office says Lenhardt’s Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor told authorities about the party.

An AA sponsor unrelated to the case said the organization focuses on telling the truth. He believes that’s why Lenhardt’s sponsor had no choice but to turn to police when Lenhardt allegedly shared details of the party with her.

“We believe in honesty,” he said. “Most likely the sponsor will guide the sponsee to go ahead and take care of the issue.”

The details laid out in a Columbia County incident report are disturbing. The AA sponsor claims Lenhardt opened up during a sobriety conversation about why she lost custody of her five children.

Lenhardt’s attorney released a statement saying that Lenhardt acknowledges that she acted inappropriately and is remorseful. In the statement below, her attorney also says many of the allegations are exaggerated.

“Mrs. Lehnardt acknowledges that due to recent alcohol abuse she engaged in several acts of inappropriate conduct.  Although, many of the allegations are exaggerated, she is extremely remorseful for what she allowed to occur in her presence and is obtaining professional and pastoral counseling to ensure that this conduct is never repeated.  Mrs. Lehnardt intends to fully cooperate with the legal naked-twister-mom-smsystem to accept complete responsibility for her conduct and to fully atone for her actions.  However, at not time did Mrs. Lehnardt sponsor or facilitate a party for underage minors.  
 
Mrs. Lehnardt has recommitted herself to her faith and her family.  She is hopeful that her children, members of her faith and others will learn from her poor example as to just how easy it is for people to exercise such extremely poor judgment while intoxicated.
 
In regards to the connection this case has with Alcoholics Anonymous, Mrs. Lehnardt continues to participate in and strongly believes in the program.  She truly regrets any negative media coverage that this matter may have had on the organization.”

The report states Lenhardt told the sponsor that she allowed her 16-year-old daughter and friends to party at her Evans, Georgia home with drugs and alcohol. Read the rest of this entry »


HIGH & DRY: Marijuana Plants Soak Up Billions of Gallons of Water in California

Hempfest Promotes Legalization Of Marijuana

One outdoor marijuana plant requires approximately six gallons of water per day during its roughly 150-day growing season.

Ethan Epstein writes: California’s terrible drought has become — like just about everything else in the United States — a political issue. Many liberals have taken to blaming anthropogenic climate change for the drought, while some conservatives have placed the blame at the feet of “liberal environmentalists.” The political point-scoring is tiring and just plain silly, given that the drought is almost certainly a result of natural processes — processes that we humans, conservatives and liberals alike, have precious little to do with. Another problem is that our partisan pugilists are conflating two separate issues: the drought, which is the lack of rainfall that California has suffered over the past four years, and the water shortages, which may indeed have some man-made causes.

“Over California’s four-year drought, outdoor marijuana plants — based on the six-gallon a day estimate, and the 2006 figure — have used roughly 63 billion gallons of California water.”

To that end, a San Francisco-based author with a PhD in Nutritional Ethnomedicine floated an interesting theory regarding those water shortages earlier this week.  Speaking on the radio, he suggested that California’s huge crop of marijuana plants is “depleting the water table,” and is partially responsible for the massive shortfalls in water that the state is now facing.

“…by some estimates, California now produces more marijuana than Mexico.”

It may sound outlandish, but it turns out that there may be something to the good doctor’s theory.

As anyone who has ever had the misfortune to visit, say, Santa Cruz can attest, there’s a lot of marijuana in California. (This despite the fact that it’s only legal for medicinal use in the state.) Indeed, by some estimates, California now produces more marijuana than Mexico.

Black Bong Water for the 21st Century Connoisseur: Marijuana Infused Coffee

coffee-buzz

DC News FOX 5 reports: A new product promises drinkers a jolt of something extra than your daily dose of caffeine.

[You can order all kinds of coffee supplies from Amazon]

Washington state based Mirth Provisions plans to release a cannabis-infused cold-brew coffee called “Legal,” as the new product will only be available in markets where marijuana is legal.

morning-buzz

Creator Adam Stites told My Northwest that each  bottle will contain about 20 milligrams of THC, enough to create “an alert, creative, high,” but not too much as to make it an unpleasant experience, “especially for people that are just getting into marijuana.”

On the company website, Mirth Provisions proclaims their coffee is “ mighty refreshing poured over ice or just sipped straight from the bottle. Knock one back with your compadres and take on the day with a smooth buzz and a grin a mile wide.” Read the rest of this entry »

Michelle Malkin: My Trip to the Pot Shop

colorado-pot-shop

MalkinPUEBLO WEST, Colo. — Michelle Malkin writes:  It’s 9 a.m. on a weekday, and I’m at the Marisol Therapeutics pot shop. This is serious business. Security is tight. ID checks are frequent. Merchandise is strictly regulated, labeled, wrapped and controlled. The store is clean, bright and safe. The staffers are courteous and professional. Customers of all ages are here.

“Our stash included 10 pre-rolled joints, a “vape pen” and two containers of cheddar cheese-flavored marijuana crackers (they were out of brownies). So far, just one cracker a day is yielding health benefits.”

There’s a middle-aged woman at the counter nearby who could be your school librarian. On the opposite end of the dispensary, a slender young soldier in a wheelchair with close-cropped hair, dressed in his fatigues, consults with a clerk. There’s a gregarious cowboy and an inquisitive pair of baby boomers looking at edibles. A dude in a hoodie walks in with his backpack.

And then there’s my husband and me.

[VIDEO] Curiously, CNN Reporter Appears High on Weed During Segment on What? Where Were We? Oh yeah. Marijuana

From Hot AirAllahpundit again…

Via Gawker, if you can’t watch the whole thing, skip to 4:00 to see why last night Anderson Cooper called this the greatest live hit the show’s ever done. My favorite moment is that big, bright, glassy-eyed smile at 5:15. (Second-favorite: The thoughtful explanation of the difference between sativa and indica.) The question here isn’t whether she’s high — the symptoms she describes are familiar even to non-users (losing her train of thought, finding things unusually funny, etc) — but whether she could have gotten this giggly from a contact high, i.e. from second-hand smoke without taking a hit herself. Answer: Yes, if she was around lots and lots of it. A single joint won’t do much to a bystander; 16 joints might. According to Kaye, she was riding around in the close confines of a limo all day with veteran potheads smoking blunts as big as cannons. Contact-high verdict: Plausible.

Why the Right Shouldn’t Fear Cannabis

devils harvest

Michael Anissimov writes:  Cannabis has been legalized in Washington state and Colorado, causing apprehension among some on the right. Last August, Newt Gingrich said that general legalization would be a “huge mistake.” Chris Christie has long shown his disdain for medical marijuana, saying of a proposed law in its favor, “Here’s what the advocates want: They want legalization of marijuana in New Jersey. It will not happen on my watch, ever. I am done expanding the medical marijuana program under any circumstances.”

smoking-mad-guy-clEmily Miller at the Washington Times wrote recently that activists are “totally uneducated’ about the “severe consequences” of smoking cannabis, writing that it is “simply a toxin” which is “more similar to heroin and cocaine than alcohol in how it affects the body.”

Former Bush speechwriter David Frum has been sounding the alarm about marijuana use for years. In a September column at CNN, he implied that cannabis is harmful, but he didn’t say why.

On the other side of the issue, a number of Republicans have stepped forward in favor of legalizing marijuana. Rush Limbaugh admits that he used cannabis during his recovery from opiate addiction and says that the legalization of marijuana is “a great issue” for the GOP. Pat Robertson is famously in favor of legalization, saying “this war on drugs just hasn’t succeeded.”

In California, a majority now supports legalization, and a new law in favor of legalization is being floated. Now that support for legalization is rising nationwide, the right needs to ask itself: are we in support of legalization, or not?

jazz-adults

The critics of marijuana legalization have trouble getting their arguments straight, and oppose it based on a visceral cultural revulsion, rather than science or reason. There is no scientific evidence that marijuana is “similar to heroin and cocaine.” If anything, it is more similar to caffeine — the effects rarely last longer than 2-3 hours, and are extremely mild. The majority of users use it only occasionally, and daily addicts — if true addiction is even possible, which seems doubtful due to the way that marijuana works in the brain — will be able to get it on the black market anyway.

Alcohol causes 75,000 deaths per year, cannabis causes zero.

Stoned Headline of the Day? CBS Seattle

If you scroll down (or click here) you’ll see a news item about Marijuana from CBS Seattle. We took the headline as is, without noticing the first word in the headline “Stake”, makes no sense.  Yes, we missed it.

Here at punditfromanotherplanet, were pretty sure the CBS headline for this story was supposed to be ‘State“. Looks like someone on the night shift besides me let it slip right through. Catch it while it’s still there. I imagine it’ll be corrected by morning. In case it’s disappeared down the bunny hole, here’s a screen cap:

Drug dealer crushed to death by his own stash

Yesterday a man was cruising along the freeway in Brazil, transporting a half-ton of weed, when the police jumped on his trail. According to the Daily Mail, the drug dealer somehow managed to notice over the mountain of marijuana in his backseat that the Federal Highway Police were chasing him.

In the midst of the 3-mile high speed chase, he lost control of the car and crashed into a tree, causing the 1,100 pounds of weed to fly forward and crush him, killing him instantly.

Add this awful accident to the list of reasons not to deal drugs, besides that whole “you could spend your life in prison” thing.
