Let's just say, hypothetically, that my cannabis consumption has gone up this year. And we'll wager that, in a global pandemic, perhaps yours has as well.  This is all hypothetical here! Perhaps next year it won't be, as the House just passed a bill decriminalizing weed at a federal level, but I digress.  If you or a friend allegedly enjoy weed and want to treat yourself or them to some fun and/or bougie and/or useful weed-themed gifts, this list is for you.  Read more...More about Cannabis, Culture, and Drugs Source: Marshable

Some students in Colorado will soon be able to major in weed instead of just smoking it in their dorm rooms.  Colorado State University-Pueblo just received approval for the state's first degree program focused on cannabis, the Denver Post reports. The program is called "Cannabis, Biology and Chemistry" and will be similar to a double major in biology and chemistry, dean of the university's College of Science and Mathematics David Lehmpuhl told the Post. The focus will be on learning the science necessary to succeed in the field.  Lehmpuhl said the degree will be rigorous. He also stated that the university is not pro or anti cannabis, but rather they know that the industry will continue to grow and they want students to be prepared.  Read more...More about Cannabis, Weed, Culture, and Dru
No one will tell me if weed is allowed in 'The Bachelor' mansion

As a staunch member of Bachelor Nation, I watched last week's premiere of season 24 with enthusiasm, and was ready to watch Peter Weber's "journey to find love." Partway through the episode, I could not help but notice how contestant Katrina Badowski — who was later eliminated during the first rose ceremony — seemed a bit...elevated.  "You need to risk it for the biscuit," Badowski said. "And he looks like a really fucking hot biscuit." The biscuit she was referring to was, of course, Bachelor Peter. As someone who partakes in cannabis (only in places where it is legal and not in my apartment minutes before this episode started, of course), something about Badowski's look, mode of speech, and the content of what she was saying led me to believe that she was possibly, to put it bluntly, b

With more and more states legalizing cannabis, the stigma against the plant is, thankfully, weakening. So this holiday season, why not embrace the weed lover in your life and give them gifts that will make consuming even more fun? 1. Donation to the ACLU Image: ACLU First and foremost, we must acknowledge that many people, especially people of color, are still imprisoned for cannabis charges while others (primarily white people) profit from legal weed. The ACLU recognizes this and will fight for those imprisoned to seek justice. What's a better gift than a contribution to justice, given in your weed lover's name?

This is the most annoying bong ever made

This is the most annoying bong ever made

Around the holidays there is occasionally a "hot toy" for kids that flies off the shelves and winds up on eBay with a huge up-charge. This was the case for Furbies in my youth and more recently, Hatchimals.  In adulthood, though, these must-haves are fewer and farther between. Sure, there may be clamoring for the latest iPhone when it drops, but Apple has learned how to keep up with demand in recent years. And in the age of dystopian Amazon warehouses and click-to-buy, anyway, is any "hot item" truly limited? Yes: Puff the Squeaky Chicken, and it’s what you imagine it is: a rubber chicken bong, complete with a squeaker that works upon inhale. The bong is made by MSCHF, the prankster group behind Jesus Shoes and the fake astrology stock app Bull & Moon.  Read more...More about Weed, Cul
