  1. blakegriff

    Rolling Stone interviewed Blake Griffin for its latest issue. They didn’t ask him about flopping, but they did ask him about marijuana; specifically, whether or not he thinks the NBA should allow its (medicinal) use. Here was Blake’s logical response: It doesn’t really affect me, but so many guys would probably benefit from it and not… Read more »

  2. college!

    The much maligned NCAA finally got one right, as NCAA athletes can now have their cake and smoke it too. Just a day after the NCAA ruled their Division 1 student-athletes will now receive unlimited snacks munchies, the NCAA has eased up its pot-smoking policies. As CBS’ Dennis Dodd reports (with a pun-driven piece), the NCAA has chopped… Read more »

    4/20 isn’t just an excuse to smoke weed. Every year, more and more businesses target this date as a prime time to launch their stoner-targeted company. Most of those companies hit Denver and the Cannabis Cup to launch their product or website. This year, the most intriguing launch we’ve heard about it is a smokey… Read more »

    When it comes to edibles, I’m generally not into the lavish, indulgent types. I normally prefer to eat a basic, small edible, and blow my post-edible munchies (and calories) load on a pint of Ice Cream. Thus, I typically believe that edibles are best kept simple and without tons of sugar. But, as is usually… Read more »

    If you live on the East Coast, London, or are simply afraid of the sunlight, watching a movie about weed while on weed is never a bad idea. This 4/20, stoners will have two brand-spanking new stoner-film options. The first is the new Trailer Park Boys film titled Don’t Legalize It (a Netflix streamers delight). The… Read more »

  6. ecigs gross

    E-Cigarettes have slowly but surely phased out cigarettes as the chic way to inhale tobacco (and cannabis) in America. The advantages of E-Cigarettes for kids are simple: they don’t stink your clothes up as much, they’re discreet, and well, they’re easy to get (see: ordering online). Since it’s become nearly impossible for Big Tobacco companies… Read more »

    This story exemplifies why marijuana remains–and will remain–a cash only and closeted business for the foreseeable future (and perhaps till federal prohibition ends). Because the DEA still has enough free time on their hands to hassle every day people who like to get high. In Illinois, a middle-aged, middle-class artist went shopping at a local… Read more »

  8. uruguay's president is the man

    Since legalizing marijuana last summer, Uruguay was named The Economist’s 2013 Country of the Year, Uruguay President Jose Mujica (pictured above with Aerosmith) was named TIME’s Man of the Year, and Uruguay has–likewise–become arguably the hippest country around. Uruguay’s hipness starts right at the top with Mujica–a man who’s salary is less than most Investment… Read more »

    The media rush to capitalize on marijuana’s emergence isn’t just reserved to big-timers like CNN and CNBC. Now, of all outlets, the Weather Channel (and weather.com) have entered the marijuana reporting game. Their report–like many outsiders trying to educate on the industry–is a bizarre one that features the above anchor talking about marijuana myths even… Read more »

  10. 420 rally

    For years, Denver’s Civic Center Park has acted as the de facto, unofficial free party to end prohibition and celebrate marijuana’s birthday. This year, the party is going very official at the Civic Center Park on 4/19 and 4/20: over the two-day weekend, the “Cannabis Culture Music Festival” and 420 rally features two stages with over… Read more »
