Weed-Infused K-Cups Are Now Available! Stoners Rejoice!

Weed-coffee

(PCM) The invention of coffee K-Cups has made the lives of coffee drinkers everywhere just a little bit easier and way more convenient. Now, there is a new K-Cup on the market that infuses weed with coffee and takes the term “wake and bake” to an entirely new level.

A company called Fairwinds Manufacturing has discovered a way to infuse coffee with weed and pack it all up in a K-Cup. It is called “Catapult” and contains about 10 milligrams of infused THC in each cup. Currently, the company is selling the K-Cups for about $37 for a six-pack which equals out to be roughly about $10 a cup.

Several retailers in the Seattle area have already begun selling “Catapult” in their shops and customers claim that the weed-infused coffee gives them a nice energetic high, minus the jittery feeling associated with caffeine, as the THC appears to balance that out.

“Artist” Stirs Up Controversy Selling People’s Instagram Images For Profit

Insta-Prince1

(PCM) A so-called “artist” by the name of Richard Prince has been turning quite a large profit by blowing up images from other people’s Instagram posts and selling them for upwards of $100,000. This is yet another reason to be incredibly careful about what you post online, as Mr. Prince is selling all of these prints without the permission of the individuals who originally posted and shot the photos.

Thus far, those that have attempted to sue Prince for copyright infringement have all lost in court due to a loophole in the laws surrounding intellectual property. It appears that fair use allows artists to comment or change an existing artwork to create something different. It is just how much change that is needed to make it different that comes into question, as long as it is a new expression, the court system considers it to be fair use.

Prince is simply taking the original photo from Instagram, blowing it up in size and then adding some of his own commentary to the bottom of the image. He has title the art series “New Portraits” and it has been on display at several art galleries and fairs in the New York City area.

Word to the wise for Instagram users … if you don’t want your images stolen and used for profit, be sure to set your accounts to private for protection.

British Toymaker Creates Dolls With Birthmarks And Disabilities

Makies1

(PCM) Makies, a British toymaker, has introduced a line of dolls that offer children with disabilities or perceived flaws to which they are able to relate.

The companies customizable dolls are created using 3D printers and customers can add certain features to them such as hearing aids, walking sticks, glasses and even birthmarks. The customer sends the company an image for the child that the doll is being created for and Makies is then able to tailor the doll directly to the needs of that particular child.

The new line of dolls made their debut last week and already they are being flooded with requests for certain special accessories and the company is more than ready to rise up and meet the demand. The custom Makies dolls sell for approximately $100 dollars, which is about the same prices as other non-custom Makies dolls.

Makies got the idea for the custom doll line after a deaf mom started a campaign on Facebook called “Toy Like Me” which urged toy manufacturers to create toys that were more inclusive to all children and celebrated their differences.
