Poll: Which SNL Cast Member—Past or Present—Would You Want to Get High With?

Uncategorized
There’s nothing better than a Saturday night spent getting lit and laughing—which is why Saturday Night Live has been a stoner standby for decades. We recently got high with current SNL cast member Pete Davidson, who told us how he wouldn’t be able to perform on SNL if he couldn’t smoke weed, which got us thinking about what other SNL greats we’d like to smoke out. Honestly, there are too many to choose from, so we thought we’d ask you—which of these SNL cast members would you most want to blaze with? Don’t see your top pick represented? (We know, we know, we couldn’t list them all!) Then, let us know your choice in the comments below!

Top 10 Fake Weed Stories from Last Year

Uncategorized
There was a lot of good news with marijuana this year—namely the widespread legalization efforts that swept our nation—but not everything was true. With fake news and alternative facts seemingly here to stay, here are 10 of the most amusing fake pot stories from 2016. 1. Colorado Rockies to Sell Weed Brownies at Baseball Games  A rumor went around that the Rockies would start selling pot-related items at the concession stands for all home MLB games. Sadly, despite Colorado’s legalization, chalk this one up to social media gossip. 2. A Hybrid of Kale and Marijuana Called Kaleabis This one was from us, but the joke was lost on a lot of people. April fools! 3. Justin Trudeau Expunges Records of Canadian Marijuana Users While most of us want to believe every good thing we read about Justin Tru

Colombia Rebels See Gangs Moving into Drug-Producing Areas

Uncategorized
BY JOSHUA GOODMAN ASSOCIATED PRESS BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Criminal gangs are attempting to take over coca-growing regions in Colombia being abandoned by the leftist rebels to expand cultivation of the plant used to make cocaine, a leader of the country’s largest guerrilla movement said. The threats against communities in the northern Colombia and elsewhere have increased as a peace deal reached last year between the government and Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia begins to be implemented, the rebel leader known as Pastor Alape said Friday. Sixteen activists have been killed so far this year, Alape said, and authorities acknowledge some of the slayings may be the beginnings of a turf war waged by the powerful Usuga Clan and other groups to prevent a joint FARC-government eradication
Pot Matters: Hemp on the Hill

Pot Matters: Hemp on the Hill

Uncategorized
Look no further for proof of the success of the hemp industry than your local grocery store. This picture is from the aisles of Giant Food, a major grocery chain in the Washington, DC area, showing raw shelled hemp seeds in the organic foods section of the store. Vote Hemp is the leading advocacy group working on restoring hemp to American agriculture. Vote Hemp was responsible for the congressional passage and enactment of Section 7606 of the Agriculture Act that defines industrial hemp as distinct crop and authorizes institutions of higher education or state departments of agriculture in states where hemp is legal to grow hemp for research or agricultural pilot programs. Next on the agenda is to secure the passage of The Industrial Hemp Farming Act (IHFA) to enable states to sanction an

Is Apple Developing a Vape Pen?

Uncategorized
Is Apple getting into the weed business, one might ask if they happened to come across its application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a “sublimator/vaporizer”? Apple refers to its object as: “An apparatus for vaporization or sublimation of a substance…” The application, with 22 claims and lots of detail, goes on to describe an apparatus built around a chamber with a heating element at the bottom, which sounds very much like a vape pen. “The substance may be a solid precursor that is to be sublimated within a chamber, or it may be a liquid chemical that is to be vaporized in the chamber,” reads the application, made public on January 26 and reported by Silicon Beat. What, pray tell, is the substance? Although the application does not mention the nature of the substance to be va

Ireland Wants Medical Marijuana Now—And For Free!

Uncategorized
Medical marijuana is moving along quickly in Ireland, but not quick enough for the national legislature. Lawmakers want legal cannabis in sick peoples’ hands “as soon as possible”—and they want the government to pick up the tab. Multiple families have left Ireland for America in the past few years in order to access cannabis products like high CBD oil. Others, like Vera Twomey, have publicized the plight of children with intractable epilepsy who could benefit from cannabis but can’t get any. There is likely not an elected official in Ireland who hasn’t heard about Twomey’s six-year-old daughter Ava, the centerpiece of a campaign meant to shame lawmakers into taking action. Shame works, because they have, and quickly: Democratic socialists from Dublin introduced a bill last year that has fl

Man Given Death Sentence for Selling Weed

Uncategorized
Southeast Asian governments have the toughest drug laws on the planet. But a death sentence for selling weed? Thankfully Jeff Sessions, Trump’s choice for attorney general, forgot that he too  once proposed executing pot dealers. Whew. In Myanmar, vegetable seller, Nur Alam Mohd Hussain, was recently sentenced to death for trafficking cannabis. The 29-year-old was found guilty on the basis of for possessing five pounds of weed, which in his trial he called “fictitious.” Hussain was arrested last November carrying two envelopes given to him by a third person. When the police surrounded him at a gas station, he dropped the envelopes and ran, later saying he didn’t know what was in them but had assumed they were stolen car parts. Myanmar authorities, according to the New Straits Times, said h

What’s Happening in Arizona? A Lot of Weed is Being Smoked, That’s What…

Uncategorized
Arizona’s more than 122,007 medical marijuana patients smoked, ate or otherwise consumed more than 29 tons of cannabis in 2016. Thankfully, Tucson.com broke it down for us: 29 tons of weed is more than half of a fully loaded tractor-trailer. Okay, you haven’t seen too many tractor trails lately? How about this? The equivalent in weight of 29 tons of pot is more than 58,600 bags of Oreos. The total breaks down to about 27 tons of buds and another couple of tons of edibles and concentrates like wax, shatter and hash oil, according to the Phoenix New Times. This amount of MMJ sold last year represents a 52 percent increase in legal pot sold in Arizona in 2015—the amount of which was twice as much as 2014. Exponential growth of medical cannabis smoking in Arizona, while driven by a new wave of
