We put out $300 dollars to have a "consultation" with George "Grimes" this is not his real last name his real last name is "Boyadjian"  Only to find out that he will NOT answer any questions after the consultation.  He says "watch the videos!!"  Well, the videos DO NOT tell you what to do at all.  All that the videos do is give you false information.  George REALLY screwed us over with his "consulting" He said we would be "legal" but when we talked to a lawyer basically all the information given by George was completely wrong! He gave us the wrong paperwork and the wrong information on what to write on these forms.  If we had gone off what he said and filed everything we would have gotten in bad legal trouble.  As our lawyer put it "Basically, all the information that George gave you is wrong and a piece of toilet paper would cover your a** more than this paperwork."  Unfortunately, we had to learn the hard way and hope no one else gets pulled into his trap. Thankfully, we had enough knowledge to ask someone else for advice and good thing we did or else we would have ben taken to court.

You get out, what you put in

AUTHOR: Daygo420 - ()

 I recently attending a 420 college seminar in San Diego, California. I felt satisfied with the information that I left with. The medical marijuana laws are constantly changing due to new legislature, for the good or the bad. You can also continue to attend and take advantage of the news for free. What's so bad about it, I don't see you trying to inform the community.

Made up my mind, thank you.

AUTHOR: lisajean123 - (United States of America)

I have been planning to attend the 420 college for some time. I plan to be prepared and 100% ready for legalized marijuana in Illinois. I hope to open my own dispensary here. When I seen George Boyadjian and his 420 college was on my shoulders sank. I plan to invest a lot of money in just the trip and class alone I can't afford to but I feel knowledge is power. After reading the complaints I want to attend even more. The only thing the complaints did was discredit the submitter. The complaints were dripping with retaliation, was bias and lacked proof and creditability. I found all of complaints immature and wonder if the submitters last name is Phelps. On the other hand Mr. Boyadjian's comments were professional and I feel he handled this incident with respect, facts and phone numbers to solidify his rebuttal. Ill be attending in the spring! Looking forward to it! :)

Video Article,

AUTHOR: mike.jackson.failing-at-failure - (United States of America)

How to be an academic failure? Let me count the ways. You can become a disgruntled graduate student. You can become a burned-out administrator, perhaps an associate dean. You can become an aging, solitary hermit, isolated in your own department, or you can become a media pundit, sought out by reporters but laughed at by your peers. You
can exploit your graduate students and make them hate you; you can alienate your colleagues and have them whisper about you behind your back; you can pick fights with university officials and blow your chances at promotion. You can become an idealistic failure at age 25, a cynical failure at 45, or an eccentric failure at 65. If failure is what youre looking for, then you can hardly do better than the academic life. The opportunities are practically limitless.

Call me arrogant, but I like to think I have a knack for failure. Having started and abandoned one abortive career, participated in the dissolution of a major bioethics center, published dozens of articles nobody has read and given public lectures so dull that audience members were actually snoring, I think I have earned my stripes. It is true that I am not an alcoholic yet. I do not have a substance abuse problem, and no university disciplinary proceedings have been brought against me so far. I am still a novice at failure. Many other people in my own field have succeeded at failing in a far more spectacular fashion than I have, some of whom are rumored to be living in South America. But I am learning. And I think I have something to contribute.As a director of graduate studies, Im always getting e-mails and phone calls. The careers office at my college has suggested that I think about becoming an embittered academic flop, these students say.
How do I do it? It takes years and years of practice, of course.

Nobody learns how to fail just like that. I know some of us make it look easy. But what looks like easy failure is often carefully constructed artifice. We want it to look easy. Do you think Michael Jordans jump shot is really as easy as he makes it look? There is no such thing as effortless failure. Youve got to work at it. And there are secrets to be learned. This is where I think I can help.

Picking a graduate school: this is where it all starts. Where should you go to get a headstart on disillusionment? Well, it depends on what kind of failure you want to be. If you want to flame out early, the choices are easy. One way is to pick out a third-rate university department staffed by bitter faculty members with Ivy League degrees. These people have spent years resenting the fact that their degree from Harvard or Princeton has landed them in a dismal backwater in Illinois, and they will take it out on you with a vengeance. Another way is to go straight to a high-powered department where the pressure is so intense that you pop a blood vessel after year one. When you get out of the hospital, you will find you are so intimidated that you cannot bring yourself to put a single word on paper, for fear that you will not be
able to defend it properly. A third way is to pick a university department where the topic you want to work on is scoffed at and marginalized. You will then develop a defensiveness and sense of inferiority about your career that will stay with you for the rest of your life. It is an ideal way to get started.

What about interdisciplinary degrees, you ask? Arent they supposed to be a sure-fire waste of time and money? Well, there are two schools of thought about interdisciplinary degrees, both of which have merit, depending on the kind of failed career to which you aspire. If what you are looking for is difficulty finding a job, then yes, an interdisplinary degree can be very useful. A degree in social thought or medical humanities or bioethics will limit your job opportunities
drastically. When you apply for jobs in mainstream departments, the chair of the search committee will roll his eyes, laugh, and toss your CV straight into the rubbish bin. It sounds appealing, I know. Yet on the other hand, these sorts of programs are often much happier places than traditional departments, and you probably will not be expected to write narrow, technical articles uninterpretable by all but 7 other people in the world. So it is a trade-off. How much happiness are you willing to undergo for the pay-off of being unemployed later? It is a difficult choice.Another option is to go overseas to do your degree. Some people think this is an easy path to early failure, especially if you want to work
in America. Americans dont know anything about universities outside their boundaries. They dont read foreign journals and have never heard of the scholars youll be studying with. An overseas degree will be such a handicap that youll never find a job. Perfect! you think.

Well, not so fast. I cant actually recommend this option, because it is what I did, and failure-wise, it was not a success. I actually had a good time, and it didnt even prevent me from getting a job. If you want to be miserable, my theory is that youre far more likely to do it successfully at home. Take the path most traveled. Travel down it so far and so often that you can do it blindfolded. Travel it with the same people, again and again, in a car pool, or a commuter train from the
suburbs. You may not fail immediately, but by the time you hit mid-career you will be so bored that you start fantasizing about changing careers. Even the deans office will start to look inviting to you, and when that happens, you will know that real misery is within your reach.

The place to get a running start on failure is when you pick your dissertation advisor. It helps to mix and match: if youre a woman, try an aging man going through a mid-life crisis; if youre a Republican, try a feminist or a Marxist. If you tend to be the fragile type, what you need is an advisor whose eyes roll back in ecstasy at the prospect of humiliating a student in class. I like to think there are three different kinds of choices here. Door number one? Professional jealousy.
Door number two? Intellectual property disputes. Door number three? Sexual harassment! You win! In fact, play your cards right and you may even get all three: an advisor who hits on you, steals your ideas, then torches your career out of envy.

What about professional mentors? you ask. Shouldn't I just apprentice myself to a more senior failure who can guide my career? Good question. One strategy is to find a senior or midcareer scholar whose own career is stalled. If you're lucky, she'll be desperate to hang onto some shred of credibility and will still have a couple of hefty research grants.
She'll hire you on as a research assistant, have you write up some papers for her, then add on her name as a co-author. I know what you are thinking. You are thinking: isnt this a recipe for success?

Publications with a well-known co-author? Maybe so, but that's only in the short term. Soon you will find yourself angry and embittered at sharing the credit for your paper with someone else simply because they pay your salary. You will confront them, quarrel, and before you know it: Presto! You've gotten the sack! Out you go, without even a proper
letter of recommendation. Your career is effectively finished.

This brings up the tricky topic of academic publishing. If you are intent on failure, I would recommend not writing any scholarly articles at all. If you insist on writing, then make sure you write well. The paradox of writing academic articles is this: the worse the writing, the more likely the paper is to be published. Most academic journals have an unwritten rule to this effect. If you send them well-written articles, they will keep rejecting them until you rewrite the articles
using the passive voice, arcane jargon and pages of irrelevant footnotes. So if you want your tenure bid to be turned down, or hundreds of rejection letters when you apply for jobs, you had better forget about bad writing. Bad writing results in publication, and publication results in jobs, promotion, and tenure.

Don't get me wrong. Bad writing does not inevitably lead to success. Done properly, it can lead to failure too. When that happens, you know you've really found something special. In the failure business, bad writing is its own punishment. Experienced writers will tell you, there is nothing quite like that sinking feeling you get when you see one of
your badly written articles in print. Especially when the argument is wrong, or patently stupid, or you have made a lame joke that isn't funny. Of course, most academic articles are never read by anyone apart from the journal editor and a couple of anonymous reviewers. But occasionally some of your professional colleagues take notice, or even
start quoting sentences from your bad articles in their own articles, and then things can really take off. Some people call this professional humiliation rather than failure, but I say take what you can get.

Humiliation counts for something too, doesnt it? What if you succeed despite all this and find yourself working at a
major university, maybe even with tenure? Does this mean its all over? It might seem so, unless you count boredom, alienation and general  professional crankiness. Of course there are the inevitable departmental quarrels. You can whine about office space, hiring decisions, and graduate students. You can pitch the occasional fit about your parking
space. You can work up a good head of resentment about your meager salary. But these are generally classified under the heading of self-inflicted professional misery rather than professional failure.

Lets be honest here. Despite your best efforts, you may actually find yourself enjoying the academic life. Students look up to you; you can hang around with professional colleagues as odd as you are; and you get to spend a lot of time sending e-mail messages to your friends. You even get a sabbatical every seventh year. You might start to look around at your friends practicing dentistry or proctology or punching a clock in an accounting office and start to think, "Hey, this isn't that bad. What can I do to ruin it?"

Here is where bioethics has something unique to offer. What other academic field requires you to issue strident moral challenges to the very people who pay your salary and sit on your tenure committee? If you are feeling a little too comfortable with success, it doesnt usually take much work to dig up some sort of ethical problem to expose.
Conflict of interest, research scandals, malpractice lawsuits in waiting -- any of these will do. Go to a dean or a hospital administrator, kick up a fuss with your Institutional Review Board, or if youre really feeling lucky, go straight to the media. Bang, youre dead! Professional suicide! This is the beauty part. In bioethics, there is always somebody
for you to alienate. Take a step in one direction and you piss off the activists. Take a step back and you anger the doctors. Step to the right and the dean wants your head. Step to the left and the media will crucify you. Pretty soon youll find yourself hopping around like a hyperactive five-year-old who has forgotten his Ritalin. One day you
will come into work and find the locks changed on your office door. When that happens, sit back, have a cigar, and start looking through the want ads. Congratulate yourself on a job well done.

the cool this is that, any one with half a brain and a fake email address can post anything they want on this site.  watch:

Russian police detained 13 people last night who were demonstrating outside a court hearing for punk group p***y Riot, who were arrested for staging a protest against Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Reuters reports.

The court met to decide whether to extend the detention of three members of the band - Maria Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Ekaterina Samusevich - who were arrested following an impromptu performance at Moscow's Christ the Saviour Cathedral, where they sang a song called 'Holy S**t' as a protest against the Orthodox Christian's church alleged support for Putin.

Although Putin regained power in the last Russian election, the verdict has been marred by accusations of fraud by his competitors.

Yesterday night about 60 of the group's supporters chanted "Freedom! Freedom!" outside the Moscow courthouse, with some releasing coloured balloons with p***y Riot's trademark masks drawn on them.

The scuffle broke out when a Russian Orthodox bystander threw an egg at the husband of one of the three detained band members. Reports say at least 13 people were dragged into police vans.

The members of p***y Riot could face seven years in jail on hooliganism charges but deny taking part in the protest in February. No date has been set for their trial but the court is expected to extend their pre-trial detention.

Shortly before their arrest, members of p***y Riot spoke to NME, calling Putin's reaction to their church protest "childish".

"We knew what the political situation was but now we're personally feeling the full force of Putin's Kafka-esque machine," they said. "The state's policy is based on a minimum of critical thinking and on a maximum of spite, and a desire to get even with those who don't please it."

Earlier this month Amnesty International called for the release of band members, arging that they were "prisoners of conscience" and accused the Russian government of punishing them for the "broader political context" of their actions, rather than the actions themselves.

The Perfect Vagina

AUTHOR: man_420_lay - (United States of America)

What began as a wander through the wacky world of genital plastic surgery became a passionate documentary about modern femininity, The Perfect Vagina. After My p***s And Everyone Elses, its now time to look at womens insecurities.Women are undergoing surgery to create perfect genitalia amid a shocking lack of information on the potential risks of the procedure, a report says. Research published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology also questions the very notion of aesthetically pleasing genitals.Operations to improve the appearance of the sex organs for both psychological and physical reasons are on the rise. But surgeons said the report overplayed the risks of an established procedure. Researchers from University College London reviewed all the existing studies on cosmetic labial surgery which

generally involves reducing the amount of tissue that protrudes from the lips which cover the vagina. They found there had been little work to document any longer-term side effects.

420 College online video courses

Starting my own marijuana business was very hard as I dont have appropriate info about it and I have tried a few ways to get some knowledge about it though all of them were not as good as what I have got from 420 College online courses. I started my medical business soon after going through the complete video course and this course really helped me a lot to improvise in depth analysis of marijuana and how I can establish a business which can be considered as good for me and there will be no harder consequences for me later after starting the business. I was a bit worried about this aspect and I was not sure that if I should go for the business or not though 420 College online courses really helped me a lot to understand each and every aspect of marijuana and how I can easily start my own business.  read it here.

Are you serious???

AUTHOR: 420_Coolege - (United States of America)

What a bunch of bull****  I am George Boyadjian, and I don't ever remember introducing myself as "Grimes"  The person did purchase our skype consultation course and did receive the full counseling that was being purchased.  Three months later he calls and asks me about a particular subject, and I gave him the answer to it.  Then he writes an email asking the same question, so after once again answering the same question this time in an email, I sent him the link to our Online Video Course for FREE, which we sell online for $150, that is separate from the $300 consultation fee that he had already paid.  I asked that he watches the videos and if he still has questions to call back.  Some people understand things the 1st time you tell em other understand things the 5th time you tell em.  In the case of this person who complained, he was the "gotta tell em 5th time" type of a person.  I explained to him that we are a consulting firm and not a babysitting service, I also asked him, how many times do I have to answer the same question and cover the same subject for him to feel like he got his money's worth, and he couldn't answer.  As far as the "toilet papers" he's referring to, they are actual papers from the Secretary of State's office in Sacramento.  Also, I wouldn't trust a lawyer as far as I can throw him, so far who's ever met an honest lawyer?  Not me.   As far as I know lawyers will say and do anything to make a buck, so obviously he was gonna down grade our paperwork so he can sell his.  Good luck in your venture buddy.   If anyone needs help with the starting a business, look up California Attorney General's Guidelines.
