    I saw the tophat guys announce six more weeks. And it's been snowing here for three days now. It's still snowing this AM. It's very light, we only got few inches. And I've never seen a Nor-easter last this long. The system was really big and spread out.

    There's more to come this weekend.

    Jamaica's marijuana shortage branded
    a 'cultural embarrassment'


    Hurricanes, drought and the COVID-19 pandemic have all taken their toll on farmers and their crops.


    Friday 5 February 2021 21:57, UK




    "Bad weather and a drop in the number of farmers has led to a marijuana shortage in Jamaica.

    Marijuana fields were pummelled by heavy rain during last year's hurricane season, before being scorched in the drought that followed, leading to tens of thousands of dollars in losses.

    "It destroyed everything," said Daneyel Bozra, who grows marijuana in the southwest of Jamaica.

    Strict COVID-19 measures made the situation worse, especially a 6pm curfew that meant farmers could not tend to their fields at night as is routine.

    A lack of roads forces farmers to walk to their fields and then to get water from wells and springs. Many were unable to do those chores at night due to the curfew.

    "It's a cultural embarrassment," said Triston Thompson from Tacaya, a consulting and brokerage firm for the country's nascent legal cannabis industry.

    He added: "Last year was the worst year. We've never had this amount of loss. It's something so laughable that cannabis is short in Jamaica."

    And speaking of ...

    What do the stars predict for Super Bowl LV?

    Astrology has had adherents going back to ancient Mesopotamia. So, what do the stars foretell for tonight's NFL championship game? Correspondent Rita Braver checks in with some of today's leading astrologers (including "Sports Sorceress" Andrea Mallis, Tracey Rogers and Susan Miller), and finds out why the pandemic has brought them more business than ever before – a development they could not see coming.

    Didn't really check but given the overall state of the cosmos, I'd say yeah, I'm going with my Chiefs ... the cosmos better not cheat me this time ... no wait, I'm confusing a couple of the posts here ... I'd call it a tossup ... I'm concentrating all my vibe power on the Kansas City Chefs ...

    Question

    AKA
    the 'Japanese Mob' ....


    The Fall of the Yakuza


    The once-feared Japanese mob is on the verge of extinction. Targeted by new laws, rapidly ageing, and unable to find fresh blood, the yakuza has dropped from a height of 180,000 members to less than 30,000. But for some, a life of crime isn't something you can just leave behind.

    In this episode of VIOLENT TIMES, Mahmood Fazal travels to Japan to meet with former and current members of the yakuza to understand what happens to those who try to leave, and what is keeping others firmly entrenched in a world of tattoos, honor, and blood.
