Is Health Agency Marijuana Video Simply Smoke and Mirrors?

Get the facts...lose the judgement

by: Mummy Buzz

Health Canada is considered the country's leading health authority. So it's surprising that its latest anti-marijuana ad spouts controversial "facts" about the drug.

Humane Society Says Why You DON'T Want Eddie the Chihuahua

from zero to Cujo in .05 seconds

by: Mummy Buzz

Most animal shelters are all about giving it the big sell: "Look at this dog's big sad eyes." They're all about the subliminal "Adopt me, Adopt me!" Not so for the Humane Society of Silicon Valley, which is working reverse psychology when it comes to a two year-old Chihuahua named Eddie. Or Eddie the Terrible, as he is affectionately known.
