Jamaican reggae pioneer Bob Marley will become the face of a new “global marijuana brand” called Marley Natural, according to a report on “The Today Show.”

The Marley family has teamed up with private equity firm Privateer Holdings to distribute marijuana-infused creams, oils and accessories such as “vape pens” and “heirloom Jamaican cannibas.”

The late singer’s wife, Rita Marley said, “He’s 100 percent behind what is happening. He’s happy because this is what we dreamed of.  It was unruly for them to call it weed or drugs. We saw it as a spiritual thing, given to us by God.”

Cedric the Entertainer: Policing in Black Community Getting a “Bit Aggressive”

Missouri native Cedric the Entertainer weighed in on the Ferguson unrest over the shooting death of unarmed teen Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson during a Wall Street Journal interview, saying, the “policing in the African-American community is getting a bit aggressive.” He added that “there’s something to be done on a national level, looking at how people are policed in their neighborhood.”

“There appears to be a little posturing in the sense that you kind of instantly divide lines. The police have a side and then the victims have a side and people aren’t really trying to find out what the truth of the matter is.”

Cedric the Entertainer said if Darren Wilson was just “doing his job” then he shouldn’t face charges. He worried that “you don’t want someone to have an advantage because they are on the side of the system.”

Former DA Wanted to Arrest Bill Cosby for Alleged Assault of Andrea Constand

BILL COSBY RAPE ALLEGATIONS:  The Bill Cosby rape scandal continues to intensify. Former Montgomery County, Penn., district attorney Bruce Castor told the Daily Mail he wanted to arrest the actor/comedian on rape charges after Andrea Constand claimed he drugged and sexually assaulted her at his Pennsylvania home in January 2004. Castor decided against pursuing the charges due to insufficient evidence.

Miss Constand, a former director of operations for Temple University’s women’s basketball team and college basketball star, launched a legal suit against Cosby, a man she called her ‘mentor’, in March 2005. She was the first – and only woman – to press charges against the comic legend.

And today, Mr Castor, who is now Montgomery County commissioner, told MailOnline exclusively: ‘I wanted to arrest Bill Cosby because I thought he was probably guilty, but being able to prove anything beyond a reasonable doubt and thinking he’s probably guilty are two different things.

‘We knew back then that other woman had come forward, but even if they did it didn’t mean anything for our case as none of those cases resulted in charges and were remote in time.’

Commissioner Castor, a former two-term DA of Montgomery County and a private lawyer at the Bryn Mawr law office of Rogers and Associates., added: ‘The lady who was allegedly attacked waited a year before she reported it. As a result of that delay, any possible corroborating physical evidence was unavailable to us.

‘We couldn’t test for hairs, fibers, DNA and drugs in her system that might match those at Mr Cosby’s house. We didn’t have any corroborative evidence. Source: Daily Mail

Joan Tarshis, a former publicist, accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 1969, when she was 19 years old. She accused Cosby of being a “serial rapist.” Barbara Bowman said no-one would listen until a man spoke up about the allegations surrounding Bill Cosby. Comedian Hannibal Buress called Cosby a rapist during one of his comedy routines.

Adrian Peterson to Appeal NFL Suspension Without Pay for 2014 Season

Adrian Peterson will appeal the NFL suspension without pay for the remainder of the 2014 season. The NFL released a statement saying that Peterson won’t be reinstated before April 15 because he violated its personal conduct policy as a result of the “abusive discipline he inflicted on his four-year-old son last May.” Adrian Peterson pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless assault earlier this month.

“The timing of your potential reinstatement will be based on the results of the counseling and treatment program set forth in this decision,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a letter to Peterson. “Under this two-step approach, the precise length of the suspension will depend on your actions. We are prepared to put in place a program that can help you to succeed, but no program can succeed without your genuine and continuing engagement.” Source: CNN

Another black athlete has fallen and fast. It’s all self-inflicted but the NFL has a credibility problem since it seems to have condoned a culture of violence. Ray Rice wasn’t kicked off the team until after TMZ released a video of him punching his then-fiance Janay Palmer. How do you explain all those players who have been arrested over the last 10 years?

The NFL Players Association issued a statement saying, “The decision by the NFL to suspend Adrian Peterson is another example of the credibility gap that exists between the agreements they make and the actions they take.”

Mali has been added to the Ebola screening list at five U.S. airports, including Hartsfield-Jackson and John F. Kennedy, after two cases were diagnosed in the West African country.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Homeland Security added Mali to the watch list on Sunday. Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea are already on the list. Passengers from those countries are subject to “enhanced entry screening” and three weeks of monitoring when they fly into the U.S. via one of five airports.

Washington D.C.’s Dulles, Newark’s Liberty and Chicago’s O’Hare airports are among the five airports conducting Ebola screening.

Separately, Dr. Martin Salia, the surgeon flown from Sierra Leone to Nebraska for Ebola treatment, is reportedly in “extremely critical” condition. The Ebola virus has killed more than 5,000 people in West Africa. To date, Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national, was the only person to die from the disease in the U.S.

Lifetime’s Aaliyah Movie, Producer Wendy Williams Slammed on Twitter

Aaliyah Movie Drama:  Lifetime’s “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B” movie created a lot of buzz, but it was the wrong kind of buzz. The movie chronicles the life of the late singer from her appearance on “Star Search,” marriage to R. Kelly, her meteoric rise  and later death in an airplane crash at age 22. The movie was largely ripped on social media as being disrespectful to her. Talk show diva Wendy Williams, who is one of the executive producers of the movie, came under blistering criticism.

The trending topics on Twitter included #AaliyahMovie, “RKelly,” who was her producer and husband, as well as “Missy and Timbaland,” her longtime producing partners. Wendy Williams was also trending. #LifetimeDisrespectsAaliyah was also a trending hashtag. Alexandra Shipp played Aaliyah in the movie.

The casting of Missy Elliott sparked outrage and accusations of colorism and body type bias. Canadian singer and dancer Chattrisse Dolabaille plays Elliott in the movie. Now you know this woman looks nothing like Missy — height, complexion and body type. I’m pretty sure if they had bothered to look they could have found a dark-skinned actress to cast as Missy Elliott. This is just another slight of dark-skinned sisters by Hollywood.

Well, I guess Zendaya Coleman did the right thing when she dropped out of the film. We know her casting was criticized, but she had some problems with the production as well. The movie also didn’t sit well with Aaliyah’s family. In other words, it has been a mess.

Howard Braunstein and Debra Martin Chase are also executive producers of the movie, which is based on Christopher John Farley’s bestselling book “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.”

Um, the Whitney Houston movie, directed by Angela Bassett will probably suffer a similar fate….I’m just saying!

Here are some of the tweets about the Aaliyah movie:

Alfre Woodard Plays First Female POTUS in NBC’s “State of Affairs”

Alfre Woodard will take on a historic role in NBC’s upcoming pilot series “State of Affairs,” airing Monday night as President Constance Payton. Talk about an interesting plot — the nation’s first black female president.

The drama also stars Katherine Heigl, who had an acrimonious departure from Shonda Rhimes’Grey’s Anatomy.” This time around, Heigl is the executive producer of “State of Affairs.”

Heigl plays Charleston “Charlie” Tucker, a CIA analyst who delivers the president’s daily briefing. There’s another twist to this story — Charlie is still dealing with the death of her fiance during a terrorist attack in Kabul. Her fiance happens to be President Constance Payton’s son.

It will be interesting to see how this fares, considering “Madam Secretary,” which stars Tea Leoni, is a success.
