The use of cannabis, at least as fiber, has been shown to go back at least 10,000 years in Taiwan. "Dà má" (Pinyin pronunciation) is the Chinese expression for cannabis, the first character meaning "big" and the second character meaning "hemp".

      Carl’s Jr. clearly wanted to boost its revenue this 4/20.
      As cannabis legalization becomes more prevalent in the United States, brands are jumping onto any opportunity to milk a few bucks out of it in any way they can. Gone are the days where stoners are portrayed in the media as lifeless, idiot dudebros

      The government of Taiwan is reportedly planning to approach Tesla about setting up lithium ion battery facilities on the heels of Tuesday’s blackout, the island nation’s biggest power outage since 1999. The facilities would be aimed at storing renewable energy on the island.
      Tesla is using its lithium ion battery technology to help Australia and California to implement smart grid and grid storage, and we can learn from them in the future,” Taiwan’s Minister of Science and Technology Chen Liang-gee told reporters.
      Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen’s has pledged to make Taiwan nuclear energy free by 2025,  and the talks of battery facilities with Tesla would be a crucial step in his plans of utilizing more green energy.

      Chen told reporters that the Taiwanese government would look to potentially form a joint venture with Tesla for the battery project as the government doesn’t have prepared a budget for the project.
      Tuesday’s blackout reportedly came after “government-run petroleum company CPC Corporation ran into difficulties while replacing the power supply for a control system responsible for sending natural gas to a power plant.”
      The plan is for Taiwan send a team of officials to the U.S. to talk with Tesla in the near future, although Chen would not be leading the talks.
      “We will try to check out whether there is a suitable solution…we will get in touch with them,” Chen said.
      Taiwan is just the latest area that is looking to strike a deal with Elon Musk and Tesla.
      Tesla secured a contract back in July to install the world’s largest lithium-ion battery storage system in South Australia.
      The Australia deal is for a 100-megawatt (129 mWh) Powerpack system to be paired with Neoen’s Hornsdale wind farm.
      The deal first came to a head in March when Musk committed to solving South Australia’s power crisis in 100 days through a Tesla Energy product or the system would be free.
      Tesla has not commented on the potential Taiwan talks just yet, but if they go well, another area will be joining Tesla’s energy revolution.

      A cannabis factory with almost 800 plants has been discovered inside an iconic Merthyr Tydfil chapel.
      Unbeknown to nearby residents, the building on Newcastle Street - a prominent landmark in the town since it was built in 1856 - was housing 769 cannabis plants.

      Officers only discovered the huge operation after conducting a spot check on someone acting suspiciously.
      From the information obtained they discovered the unbelievable haul brazenly being grown in the town centre.

      The former Kingdom Hall for Jehovahs Witnesses, on Newcastle Street in Merthyr Tydfil
      Police also found another haul of plants in a property on Pontmorlais High Street.
      A man has been arrested and charged with producing cannabis.
       

      The Salem Chapel was once a congregation church used by the Salvation Army and Merthyr Council.
      Since 1986, the chapel has been the Kingdom Hall for Jehovah’s Witnesses.
