It looks like the parties–and hallucinations–in Denver, Colorado are about to be a bit more lit! Denver residents have now voted to decriminalize shrooms (mushrooms, especially ones with hallucinogenic properties), becoming the first American city to do so!

The ballot measure was projected to fail Tuesday night with “no” votes holding a solid lead in early returns; but on Wednesday afternoon, the final unofficial results showed that the he initiative had passed by a narrow 1.12 percent margin, with 89,320 votes in favor of Initiative 301 and 87,341 were against it.

It’s important to note that these numbers remain unofficial, as the Denver Elections Division will continue to collect military and overseas ballots; however, the Denver Post points out that these votes rarely make a difference because there are typically arrive in small numbers. The results will be certified on May 16. 

Initiative 301, led by Decriminalize Denver, will effectively decriminalize the use or possession of psychedelic mushrooms by people 21 and older. Though it doesn’t legalize the psilocybin, which is illegal on both state and federal levels, the measure prohibits Denver from using resources to impose criminal penalties against adults who are caught with psilocybin—the active hallucinogenic chemical found in magic mushrooms. 

“It’s been one hell of a 21-and-a-half hours,” Initiative 301 campaign manager Kevin Matthews told the Post. “If these results hold, this is an example of the absurd comedy of the great metaphor. Against all odds, we prevailed. This is what happens when a small team of dedicated and passionate people unite under a single idea to create change.”

Those in favor of psilocybin decriminalization argue that hallucinogen has been used for thousands of years, and may be beneficial to those who suffer from substance addiction and/or mental health issues.

“Our victory here is a clear signal to the rest of the country that we’re ready for a broader conversation around psilocybin and its potential benefits,” Matthews said. “[…] We’re looking forward to creating a positive relationship with city officials. We have the resources ready to make sure the Justice Department, the (district attorney’s) office and the Denver Police Department have the education they need to implement this in a way that’s fair.”

Denver, in particular, the western regions of the country seem to be decriminalizing recreational drugs left and right, notably marijuana. We are wondering when the North and South are going to catch up!

ImJayStation posted a video on Tuesday—a video, mind you, that’s monetized with advertisements—titled “My Girlfriend Alexia Died… *Rest In Paradise*” in which he claims his significant other was killed in a car accident.

“I never wanted to make a video like this ever, but last night, we lost Alexia to a drunk driver, guys,” the crying YouTuber said. “She was on the way to pick up something for the video we were making on our second channel, Dream Team. She got hit, guys. She’s gone. Sorry for crying. I know you guys are going to make fun of me for crying. She’s gone too soon. “

ImJayStation, whose real name is Jason Ethier, continued to talk about their Dream Team channel, which has 317,000 subscribers and which is filled with prank videos. He said he would post the five remaining videos that they had previously made but had not yet uploaded. It’s what she would have wanted, Ethier said.

“Her dream was just to get 1 million subscribers,” said Ethier, whose ImJayStation channel has 5.4 million subscribers.

In a second video released Wednesday, which was also monetized, Ethier drove to a supposed roadside memorial for Alexia to bring her flowers and to say his final goodbye. At that memorial site, candles, flowers, photos of Alexia, and a teddy bear are scattered in front of a cross. He also promoted their Dream Team channel multiple times.

“Alexia,” Ethier said, “these roses are for you. We’re going to miss you.”

Most of the comments on his videos are positive, expressing their condolences and telling them that it’s OK to cry, but there are many others who don’t believe him, particularly because he’s posted plenty of videos in which he’s tried to summon dead people or other scary beings in the middle of the night.

As one YouTube commenter wrote, “She didn’t die, you can still summon her at 3AM.”

Other recent videos from Ethier and Alexia include a vlog from earlier this month ago in which she and Ethier attempted to summon her dead dog during a 3am challenge. She’s also tried calling a dead boyfriend on FaceTime, and in November, they posted a video titled “WE BOUGHT A LITTLE GIRL OFF THE DARK WEB AND SHE WAS CRAZY!!”

All of that has led many to believe Ethier is simply making up Alexia’s death. As Twitter user @OrdinaryGamers wrote, “Jaystation is lying about his dead girlfriend. I’ve spent the entire night browsing and checking with police dept in Toronto and Ottawa. No police reports, no local news agencies and worst of all no family is confirming. I’m done with YouTube. I’m dumb for feeling sorry … I legitimately felt so bad for hearing about the ‘death’ of this person. I wish I didn’t try and look into it and lie to myself instead. I’m clenching my fucking fist and ripped some blood out realizing that some fuckface actually lied about dying like this. I’m so fucking mad.”

Whether he is lying about his girlfriend’s death should easily be able to be proven. The fact that there is no information about her demise makes us wonder did she ever exist. Still, he has earned 20, 000 new subscribers over the last couple of days so people are definitely still interested in him. Honestly, we are over this.

Teen & His Friends Pretend to Rob His Mother for YouTube Views!

According to news station KCPQ, the 17-year-old from Cleveland Heights and three friends, all wearing ski masks, confronted his mother on her driveway with a gun. After the mother escaped from the fake robbery, police said the teen admitted that his motivation was a live YouTube stream.

That’s when the teenager called 911 and said, “I just did a fake robbery prank on my mom and she ran. I know she called the police. She’s nowhere to be found.”

Asked by the dispatcher if the fake robbery attempt was a prank, the teen said, “Yeah, but she thought it was for real. Like when I got to wrestling my friends for fake, she ran out of the house.”

The dispatcher asked, “Can you explain to me what happened and why you did that to your mother?”

(Grabs belt!) We are hoping the police press charges on these boys. This is a prank that went way too far! We have seen–and done–some pranks in our heyday, but never to the likes of traumatizing our own mother. What do you guys think of these shenanigans? Sound off in the comments section below!

Joe Melgoza, 30, who has been described as a “loving” family man was celebrating his new union on Sunday when he was attacked at his wedding reception, which was held in the backyard of a family member in Chino, KTLA reported.

At around 2:20 a.m. police found Melgoza suffering from blunt force trauma to his head, Chino Police Department said in a statement.

Police discovered the mortally injured the groom after responding to reports of a fight breaking out around Oaks Avenue, just a couple of blocks away from Melgoza’s celebration.

Once on the scene where the altercation broke out, police found two victims of battery and were told by witnesses that there was another victim involved in the incident, but “was missing.”

After conducting a brief search, officers found Melgoza. He was then transported to Chino Valley Medical Center where he died.

Following Melgoza’s death, police arrested brothers Rony Aristides Castaneda Ramirez, 28, and Josue Daniel Castaneda Ramirez, 19, on suspicion of killing Melgoza, according to Chino Police.

It is not immediately clear if Melgoza knew the suspects prior to the attack, according to authorities.

At this time, the investigation remains ongoing.

This is truly terrible, and the brothers who did this deserve justice to its maximum capacity. We are praying for Joe Melgoza and his wife–now widow–in this terrible time. This story only reminds us that time with the ones we love is truly precious, and life is fleeting.
