Mark Anthony Jones, 46, an unlicensed gun owner in Indiana is recovering in a hospital after accidentally shooting himself in the penis. Jones told police in Marion that he was taking a morning walk when the Hi-Point 9mm handgun he was carrying in his waistband “began to slip,” according to The Smoking Gun. According to a Marion Police Department news release on Facebook: Jones told police that when he “reached down to adjust” the unholstered gun, it discharged, shooting a bullet that “entered just above his penis and exited his scrotum.” Here is the Marion Police Department’s news release posted on Facebook:
Investigators have forwarded the case to the Grant County prosecuting attorney, the release notes that Jones doesn’t have a license to carry a handgun in Indiana. Investigators will determine if Jones will face any criminal charges for the self-inflicted wound.

What’s the truth behind the top secret, heavily-guarded air force base in the middle of the Nevada desert that’s fueled conspiracy theories and sci-fi shows for decades?. Area 51 where the military has been conducting classified experiments for the past 50 years involving extraterrestrial technology. Area 51 is a top secret U. S. Air force facility in the Nevada desert, it’s been there since the early 1950’s but the CIA only acknowledged it’s existence in 2013. Signs around the perimeter warn trespasser could and or will be shot, deadly force is authorized. There are many theories on what happens beyond these fences.
Are government scientists studying crashed alien spacecraft? and conducting alien autopsies on retrieved bodies? Witnesses claimed to have seen futuristic aircraft and flashing lights above area 51. Is there proof the U.S. has harnessed extraterrestrial technology? or something else so secret and mysterious the conspiracy theorists haven’t figured it out yet? But there are more down to earth explanations. The base was used to test the U2 spy plane at the height of the cold war. The remote location and high security were designed to stop Russian and other foreign spies from stealing secrets, and if high tech military aircraft are still being tested, the secrecy and flashing lights make sense. It all boils down to, what do you really want to believe, the government, or the conspiracy theorists?

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Democrat’s proposed spending plan, released Thursday, projects the state will bank $355 million in marijuana excise taxes by the end of June. Deep in Gov. Gavin Newsom’s new budget is a figure that says a lot about California’s shaky legal marijuana market: The state is expecting a lot less cash from cannabis taxes. That’s roughly half of what was once expected after broad legal sales kicked off last year. Most consumers are continuing to purchase pot in the illegal marketplace, where they avoid taxes that can near 50 percent in some communities. Tax collections are expected to gradually increase over time, but predicting what that amount will be remains something of a guess. Industry experts say the diminished tax income reflects a somber reality. Tax collections for “a newly created market are subject to significant uncertainty,” the budget said. Josh Drayton of the California Cannabis Industry Association credited Newsom with taking “a realistic look at the challenges” after a bumpy first year of broad legal sales. Newsom also recommended a sharp increase in spending for regulatory programs, although it’s an open question whether it will be enough to help steady the state pot economy.
Initially “the state was too optimistic about how the implementation of legalization was going to work. This governor has paid attention to that,” Drayton said. The budget recommends just over $200 million for marijuana-related activities in the fiscal year that starts July 1, which would be over a 50 percent boost from the current year. That said, Drayton added that legal businesses need a break from hefty tax rates that are driving consumers to the illicit economy. Local governments are free to slap taxes on sales and on growers too, which has created a confusing patchwork of tax rates around the state. Various proposals have been made to cut state pot taxes. The state’s top marijuana regulator, Lori Ajax, has said the state intends to get more businesses licensed and operating in 2019, while cracking down on rogue operators who continue to proliferate across the state. By some estimates, up to 80 percent of sales in the state remain under the table, snatching profits from legal storefronts. At year’s end, California’s effort to transform its longstanding illegal and medicinal marijuana markets into a unified, multibillion-dollar industry remained a work in progress. Meanwhile, the courts budget includes nearly $14 million for resentencing of thousands of drug offenders whose offenses are no longer crimes since California legalized recreational pot.

Some Valentines have such high expectations that they end up being disappointed when they get the same cliche candy, flowers or sex apparel. Booooooooring.! Of all the gift-giving holidays, perhaps Valentine’s Day is the most fraught with danger. But if you’re dating someone who would be disappointed to receive a 6-foot gummy cobra, a marijuana bouquet, or a giant pirahna plant puppet, trust us: You don’t want them in your life. Luckily, with our guide, (because you probably will ― see? No more stress!) you don’t have to worry about disappointing your Valentine. Meanwhile, anyone who loves the gifts below (or is at least willing to fake enthusiasm) is a real keeper. When it comes to gummy anything, bigger is always better. This 6-foot-long gummy python is sure to let your Valentine know you are truly sweet on them. Yes, you could give your Valentine roses, but those things die after a few days and, other than the smell, are kind of boring. On the other hand, there’s nothing more romantic than a giant pirahna plant puppet.
Love can be topsy turvy, so shouldn’t your wine glasses be as well? especially since alcohol probably played a large part in helping you meet your Valentine. It’s only available in California, but for some people, this is enough reason to book a trip. Roses are romantic, but you ever tried smoking one? Not recommended. Instead, you can promote a budding romance with a bouquet made from one ounce of carefully cultivated marijuana. Giving your Valentine sexy lingerie sounds good in theory, but isn’t that more of a gift for yourself? This Super Mario lounging outfit will send your love the message that you don’t give a damn what other people think is sexy. And last but not least I offer, your Valentine will have sweet dreams of you when they wear this unicorn sleep mask. FYI: You are allowed to make one — only one — reference to “being horny” after you give it, but that’s it! So go surf the internet and find that special gift(s) to keep the romance alive in and out of the bedroom.

Well i started my own! And it was not easy. I had the idea about 2 years ago. See i have been in the local music business for 25 yrs. in the Orange and L.A. County scene, I have grown to know a quite a few great musicians and even more great people that come and support the scene. I remember i was sitting at the House of metal located at 604 e. Dyer rd. in Santa Ana ca. it was a tribute night, Tons of killer tribute bands. Perfect strangers Tribute to Deep Purple was playing “child in time”. I had thought to myself “wouldn’t it be cool to have a playlist with all these talented artists!” Then I thought about all the great original bands and artists, and how awesome it would be if people could and would have another place to listen to unheard music. So the next question was, how do i acquire all this music? Going on every Band camp, Reverbnation, and/or CD Baby site and troll for bands! Hmm seems like a tedious journey. There must be an easier way. At the end of the night i was saying my good byes to Mike and Ed, the promoters for the House of metal show that night, I mention to they my thoughts to them. Mike says “You will need a lot of music”. And stays “ONLY THE BEST BANDS!!” So i says to them do you want to start a radio site where all the people could listen 24/7, anytime they wanted? We are in!!! Hell yeah!! And with a little knowledge and a lot of YouTube i got it all together for and hear i am…
