Mexico senate approves bill to legalise weed

 - International - Nov 20 SHARE ON:

The Senate of Mexico has just approved a bill which allows people to carry a maximum of 28 grams of marijuana on them at any time whilst also permitting the growth of as much as four plants. 

Elsewhere, marijuana retailers would be allowed to sell it to adults as long as it complies to laws of psychoactive ingredients. 

The law is awaiting approval by the lower house of Congress before it enters legislation, but if it does, Mexico would become the third country in the world to legalise the drug.

50 Cent said Donald Trump wanted to bribe him for $1 million

 - Celebrities - Nov 20 SHARE ON:

50 Cent drove his fans crazy when this year’s U.S. election came round, but he have topped his list of crazy moments with the recent claims that Donald Trump attempted to bribe him for his endorsement for $1 million. 

With contradictory statements occupying social media, we just don’t know what to expect from 50 Cent, with statements on Twitter saying ‘Vote for Trump’ and tweets reading “F* Donald Trump, I never liked him.”

With 50 being the controversial figure he is, we don’t know what to believe, but let’s just say that nothing will surprise us from these two figures.
