Today in Marijuana News: Nike, Unpaid Tickets and Nebraska

Nike Caves!!!! The Boston Nike store that generated controversy for shirts with “Get High” and similar slogans on them has pulled the display from windows. After Boston Mayor Thomas Menino complained about the display “giving credence to the drug issue,” and even reportedly wrote a letter to Nike, the company has quietly removed the shirts. “It’s good news that Nike has removed the display,” said the Mayor’s spokeswoman, Dot Joyce. “It’s inappropriate and we will continue to make sure that all displays in our city do not promote the use of drugs. It is unacceptable and we’re happy they agree.” Nike has stuck by their position that the slogans are about extreme sports rather than drugs
