(Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)The brother of star NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes was once thrown out of a game for doing something to Baker Mayfield. Seriously.The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman has an oral history on the epic Oklahoma-Texas Tech game from 2016, in which Mahomes and Mayfield combined for more than 1,200 passing yards and 12 touchdowns.The best nugget from the story, in my opinion, is that of Mahomes’ brother.Mahomes’ brother was reportedly thrown out of the stands for hitting Mayfield with a tortilla (Texas Tech fans like to throw tortillas in celebration).Mayfield, of course, ate the tortilla, because that’s what Baker Mayfield would do.“Patrick’s brother, (16-year-old) Jackson, threw a tortilla and it hit Baker Mayfield —he didn’t know it was Patrick Mahomes’ brother. His brother wasn’t throwing it to be mean…Baker picked it up and took a bite out of it. Then Patrick’s brother got thrown out of the game.”The much crazier revelation in @BruceFeldmanCFB’s story is that Mahomes’ brother was thrown out of the stadium for hitting Baker Mayfield with a tortilla. (Baker then took a bite out of said tortilla because Baker.)— Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) October 29, 2018That is just an awesome anecdote.You can read the full story here.last_img read more

First medical marijuana dispensary opening in Hawaii

Dispensary sales of medical marijuana in Hawaii are beginning after patients waited 17 years for a legal way to purchase the drug. Maui Grown Therapies was the first dispensary in the state to sell medical marijuana to patients. (Maui Grown Therapies via AP) First medical marijuana dispensary opening in Hawaii HONOLULU, Hawaii – Dispensary sales of medical marijuana in Hawaii are beginning after patients waited 17 years for a legal way to purchase the drug.Maui Grown Therapies received approval from the Department of Health to begin selling medical cannabis Tuesday.The dispensary sold medical marijuana to patients for two hours Tuesday, limiting their hours to help manage the new process, said Teri Freitas Gorman, director of community relations and patient affairs.“Clearly this is a historic day not just for Maui but for the state of Hawaii,” Freitas Gorman said. “This is the first time in Hawaii that patients will be able to buy lab-tested, quality-assured medical cannabis from a state-licensed dispensary. We’re so excited.”The Maui dispensary pre-registered patients and began selling medical cannabis to patients by appointment only. They made 22 transactions and there were some software glitches, but patients were very excited, Freitas Gorman said. Marijuana was sold for $20 per gram and $90 to $125 for a quarter-ounce, depending on the strain. Walk-in sales will start in about a week.“This is an important day for qualified patients and caregivers on Maui who now have assurance the medical cannabis they purchase at Maui Grown Therapies has been thoroughly tested and is safe for them to use,” said Virginia Pressler, director of the state Department of Health, in a statement. “Implementing a new health program is always challenging, and the dispensary program was no exception.”Hawaii was among the first states to legalize medical marijuana in 2000. But the state didn’t legalize dispensaries until 2015, so the state’s 18,000 patients had to grow or obtain the drug on their own.Hawaii granted licenses to eight medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the Hawaiian islands last year. Several dispensaries began growing and harvesting the product, but they were unable to sell it because until recently the state had not certified a lab.Honolulu-based dispensary Aloha Green was inspected Tuesday by the Department of Health and later announced it would open for sales Wednesday.The dispensary says the price will include costs unique to Hawaii, including high electricity prices, lab testing, substantial taxes and a delay in sales for over a year. by Cathy Bussewitz, The Associated Press Posted Aug 8, 2017 3:17 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 8, 2017 at 11:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more
