Ryan Gosling couldn’t stop laughing while hosting Saturday Night Live.

An Oakland startup is developing a marijuana breathalyzer.

Legal in four states and decriminalized in 16, marijuana is steadily moving out of the drug war and into specialty corner stores across the country. While our laws and attitudes regarding personal use may be growing more lax, one California lab is working on a marijuana breathalyzer in order to detect drivers’ THC levels and keep the roads safe.

Room’s Brie Larson is uncomfortable with being called a Hollywood "It Girl,” asks “What is ‘it’?”

Every year or two, Hollywood declares that some new young actress with some buzzworthy roles under her belt and a charm that defies categorization is the industry’s “It Girl.” This year, with an appearance in the runaway hit Trainwreck and a career-making lead role in the critically acclaimed drama Room, Brie Larson seems poised to nab the title. But when asked about the ephemeral mantle on CBS' Sunday Morning, Larson only joked and expressed confusion. “But what is ‘it’? There is no ‘it!’” Larson said. “And who was ‘it’ before ‘it’? And when does ‘it’ go away? When did I get ‘it’? Who’s going to take ‘it’? It’s so weird. I think it’s a really funny term. I’m just a person. I’m not anything!” (Hello Giggles)
