'The Smell of SNL': An oral history of the cannabis that changed comedy forever

Urban Hippie
Saturday Night Live has offered plenty of marijuana humor in its 45-year history. But few modern fans know that the show's groundbreaking original cast smoked pot in the offices regularly — in particular, an Afghani variety grown by a friend from Connecticut who goes by the name Captain Jack.   Now Jim Belushi — SNL veteran, Blues Brother, and younger brother to the late founding cast member John Belushi — has hired Jack to help grow his famous plant for his Belushi's Farm operation near Medford, Oregon. The result can be seen in Growing Belushi, a three-part documentary that just premiered Wednesday on the Discovery Channel.  Read more...More about Marijuana, Saturday Night Live, Entertainment, Drugs, and Movies Tv Shows Source: Marshable

No more with the Stündenglass Gravity Hookah. For those who didn't spend a hazy evening of their youth with their head in a 5-gallon bucket, a gravity bong, or "g-bong" uses water and air pressure to force smoke into your lungs. Taking a full bowl to the dome will likely cause the user to get absolutely ripped, hence its
The legal cannabis industry must reckon with systemic racism

The legal cannabis industry must reckon with systemic racism

Urban Hippie
The legal and medical cannabis industry has long been complicit in the systemic oppression of Black people. As Black Lives Matter protests continue around the country, activists, doctors, and entrepreneurs are calling for those in cannabis to dismantle the systemic racism the industry is built on. In the wake of the protests against police brutality following the death of George Floyd, a Black man who was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis, all facets of American culture are forced to rethink its approach to race. The cannabis industry, which has a projected economic impact of $77 billion by 2020, is steadily growing. But the effects of the generations-long war on drugs are still prevalent in marginalized communities, particularly Black ones. Read more...More about Black Lives...

Puff, don't pass: The future of weed after coronavirus

Puff, don't pass: The future of weed after coronavirus

Urban Hippie
Throughout the 2010s, marijuana was on a roll. Dozens of states and a couple of countries legalized it for recreational use; dozens more belatedly allowed medicinal use. VCs circled a fledgling industry that found novel ways to reach for ever more respectability. Estimated sales worldwide looked set to reach $17 billion in 2019, a jump of 38 percent, even as a crisis sparked by knock-off vape pens hobbled one of its main categories.  Then came the 2020 coronavirus pandemic...and in some ways, marijuana was on more of a roll than ever. In states like California, which designated its dispensaries an essential service, a growing mountain of evidence suggests sales have shot up since March 1. No wonder: Much of the cannabis customer base is stuck at home, anxious and bored at the same time. Th

In the midst of a global pandemic, this year's 420 is gonna be a weird one. And not in the usual way, either.  Stoners are being faced with a uniquely difficult conundrum on this holiest of holidaze due to new health concerns over consuming cannabis in light of the novel coronavirus. The uncertainty in the air is palpable.  But lots of cannabis connoisseurs are making the switch to ingesting rather than inhaling their drug of choice, with some trying edibles for the first time ever. That's because medical professionals are recommending people stay away from smoking or vaping anything, including cannabis, as it might cause lung and airway damage that puts people at a higher risk for serious harm from the coronavirus.

Netflix's 'Cooked with Cannabis' gets weed cuisine, but can't make it fun

Cooked with Cannabis isn't the first of its kind, but it is the latest to miss the mark. On Monday (yes, April 20), Netflix dropped all six episodes of its new weed-infused cooking competition hosted by "Milkshake" singer-turned-chef Kelis and cannabis cuisine expert Leather Storrs. Each episode, three guest chefs are challenged to produce a three-course meal of CBD and THC-imbued dishes fitting a pre-set theme — backyard BBQ, wedding, comfort food, holidays, etc. — to be served to the show's hosts and a hungry table of celebrity "buds." The chef behind the most impressive dining experience walks away with a $10,000 prize.  Read more...More about Netflix, Weed, Tv Review, Cooked With Cannabis, and Entertainment Source: Marshable
