Kristen Stewart smokes marijuana in "On The Road" (2012)
In a recent interview, Robert Pattinson's Cosmopolis co-star, Sarah Gadon, talked about her working relationship with the Twilight heart-throb.
She also talked about comparing RPattz to her new co-star Jake Gyllenhaal through their respective fans on Twitter. Sarah Gadon admitted that she didn't know Rob before working with him on Cosmopolis. So what did she really think of Kristen Stewart's man, who "unintentionally became an icon after all the madness from Twilight?"
He's a great guy," replied Gadon without a moment's hesitation. "Of course he has a crazy life, but he deals with it very well. I don't know how he does that. I knew he had done Twilight, but I've never even watched it, I didn't know how famous he was. All I can tell you is that he's very nice and down-to-earth."
"It's interesting," Sarah mused, "every time I get a new co-star, I sign up for Twitter and I get all their fans. And so it's kind of interesting to compare Pattinson fans and Gyllenhaal fans. You get to see what kind of fans they draw."
Unfortunately, Sarah kept discreetly mum about whether she was a bigger fan of Robert Pattinson or Jake Gyllenhaal. That was extremely classy of her. Or not. Maybe she was just afraid of Kristen Stewart. Source: celebs.gather.com
Kristen Stewart in Vanity Fair – July 2012 – Behind the Scenes
"Kristen Stewart may be a huge A-list star, but she still lives life as a “weirdo, creative Valley Girl who smokes pot.”
In the July 2012 issue of Vanity Fair, the 22-year-old actress opens up about how her life changed upon the release of Twilight in 2008.
“You can Google my name and one of the first things that comes up is images of me sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and my dog,” she says. “It was taken the day the movie came out. I was no one. I was a kid. I had just turned 18.”
“The next day it was like I was a delinquent slimy idiot, whereas I’m kind of a weirdo, creative Valley Girl who smokes pot,” she continues. “Big deal.” Source: www.hollywoodlife.com

In 2001, researchers identified 122 compounds used in mainstream medicine which were derived from "ethnomedical" plant sources;80% of these have had an ethnomedical use identical or related to the current use of the active elements of the plant.Modern practitioners - called Phytotherapists - attempt to explain herb actions in terms of their chemical constituents. In 2002 the U.S. National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine of the National Institutes of Health began funding clinical trials into the effectiveness of herbal medicine.
Many of the herbs and spices used by humans to season food yield useful medicinal compounds. Synthetic Marijuana is gaining popularity: Fake weed products are legal, and their use has grown since they were first introduced in 2002. They don't trigger a positive result on a urine drug test and are marketed as being "100% organic herbs".
Specialisation is an important issue for herbal treatments in Herbal City LLC and also their dosage necessary to determine the most effective (especially in relation to things like body weight, drug interactions, etc). Several methods of standardization may be applied to herbs. One is the ratio of raw materials to solvent. However different specimens of even the same plant species may vary in chemical content.
