What Is The Best Job For A Stoner?

Let’s face it, stoners (especially me) don’t like to work, but we do it because we have to pay the bills, right? While I was at my crappy office job today, I spent a little while reminiscing of previous jobs I’ve had that were much more stoner-friendly. My current job has a ‘zero tolerance’ policy directed at marijuana, even medical marijuana. It’s not the job I dreamed of having after college, but I had to start somewhere, so I will just have to make it work. With that being said, […]

Oregon Cannabis Tax Act relying on volunteers to gather signatures to put legalization of marijuana on the November 2010 ballot

This was just forwarded to me from Jennifer Alexander at Oregon NORML. A volunteer group in Oregon is working to gather the signatures necessary to get the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act on the ballot for the November 2010 election. 82,769 valid signatures are required to be submitted to the Secretary of State by July 2, in order to qualify for the November election. If it makes it to the ballot, Oregonians will be voting to legalize hemp without a DEA permit, to allow adults to grow their own marijuana for […]

Stay strong California

Recently in California there have two killings in L.A based dispensaries. In one case two people walked in performing a routine robbery but still killed one individual and maimed the other. In the other robbery, the owner walked in to find his employee stabbed to death. As much as I hate conspiracy theories this all smells kind of funky to me. Even if there’s no evil plot in progress the lack of police support that perfectly state legal business get is infuriating. In both cases the surveillance tapes were taken. […]

An Analysis of Marijuana Strain Names

There’s More Marijuana Strain Names Out There Every Day I used to not care what strains I smoked, so long as they were the super chronic. ‘Call it what you want, I just want to get baked,’ is what I would always say to people. However, as dispensaries become more widespread, and people continue to get seeds from seed banks rather than get their strains from friends, consuming marijuana with a name is becoming more and more common place. I remember when I smoked my first marijuana that had a […]

Public Leaders Gather to Demonize Marijuana

At the Universal City Hilton Hotel in Universal City, California, the San Diego-based non-profit CADFY (Californians for Drug Free Youth) hosted community leaders who shared their “professional” and “expert” perspectives on the dangers of marijuana in California. After reading the following quotes, you can decide for yourself the validity of their arguments about marijuana… Key quotes from the event: John Redman, Executive Director, Californians for Drug Free Youth: CADFY’s mission is to bring awareness to people about the issues of substance abuse to the people of California; to change our […]

Oregon Governor Candidate Dodges Marijuana Issues

A couple of months before the Oregon primary, a funny thing happened. Ninjasmoker received a Facebook request from Oregon Republican candidate Chris Dudley. It was very interesting to me that a self proclaimed conservative would try to network with a 100% self proclaimed stoner, even on Facebook. I chalked it up to the fact that Chris Dudley’s campaign probably sent out requests to anyone and everyone that was based out of Oregon. After all, Republicans are not exactly the most tech savvy crowd, and therefore probably just did as many […]

How to Clean a Marijuana Vaporizer Bag

If you aren’t using a vaporizer these days, you are really missing out on one of the best ways to toke it up. It wasn’t that long ago that I finally joined the vaporizer community. I was always one of those people that bashed on Volcano prices, and was quick to point out the inefficiencies of ‘wooden box’ vaporizers. It just always seemed to me that I would get high faster, and more thoroughly, when I would hit my ‘Chong Bong’ or take a waterfall/liter. That all changed when my […]

Rutgers University Could Implement Medical Marijuana Program

Come next year, Rutgers University could be one of the leaders in medical marijuana research and development. A New Jersey lawmaker who was instrumental in helping pass a medical marijuana law back in January is now suggesting that the state’s premier university become a national center for research and curriculum into the plant and its benefits. Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer) is already cooperating with Republican Governor Chris Christie’s administration to delay implementation of the law by 90 days. But even as the Assembly Budget Committee voted 7-0-2 to release the […]
