2015 Denver Cannabis Cup Award Winners

Another 4/20 is in the books, and I hope everyone had a great time and celebrated with family and friends. When it comes to 4/20 celebrations, the High Times Cannabis Cup in Denver is second to none. I’m hopeful to get there next year. I was there in 2012 and 2013, and I don’t know that there’s a funner place to be on and around April 20th. For those of us that didn’t make it to the Cannabis Cup in Denver this year, below is a video of the Cannabis Cup winners in all categories. As you can see, some

Happy 420 2015 From The Weed Blog!

This is the sixth April 20th since Jay Smoker and I created this blog in January 2010. This 4/20 is particularly special for me because it’s the first 4/20 after my home state, Oregon, voted to end marijuana prohibition. The third owner of this site, Travis, was vital to Oregon’s marijuana legalization effort, and I want to give him a big thank you for making this April 20th better than any other one I’ve ever celebrated, along with a thank you to the rest of the Measure 91 team. I hope all of our readers have a great day, and

Tommy Chong And BReal Hot Box Video Footage

Two celebrities that I admired a lot growing up (and still do!) are Tommy Chong and BReal. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet BReal on a handful of occasions at events, but I’ve yet to meet Tommy Chong. Below is a video that BReal released of him and Tommy Chong hot boxing a minibus. I have seen a lot of Smokebox videos that BReal has put out, including ones with Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa, but this session has to be my favorite one of all time, hands down. I have seen Tommy Chong do a lot of interviews, but

One of my favorite things in the marijuana media world is 420Radio.Org. Russ Belville works very hard to provide quality content and entertainment 24 hours a day at 420Radio.

Through The Roots Tour Bus Catches On Fire

Yesterday I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and I came across pictures from some friends that showed their tour bus up in flames! I used to have a weekly reggae podcast when I interned for NORML called The Irie Island Hour, which gave me an amazing opportunity to meet some great musicians, many of which are even better people. I first heard of a band called Through The Roots when they were touring with The Green through Portland in 2011. They have since continued to tour with some of the biggest names in the game, including Rebelution, Iration, Pepper,

Marijuana Was Top Google Search For Alaska And Colorado In 2014

This last year was a very big year for marijuana. Alaska, Oregon, and Washington D.C. voted to legalize marijuana. Florida nearly passed a medical marijuana initiative. New York City and Philadelphia decriminalized marijuana. Colorado and Washington started rolling out legal recreational marijuana sales. The list goes on and on. Below is a map showing what were the most searched Google words/terms by state in 2014 (via Business Insider). As you can see, the top search in Alaska was ‘legalize marijuana’ and Colorado was ‘marijuana.’ I have to say, I’m disappointed in my home state of Oregon. I would have thought

I am like most people and I like entertaining memes, especially marijuana related memes. The last few Christmas’ I saw some great marijuana memes and this Christmas there seemed to be more of them than ever. Below are some of my favorites that I came across. The first ones are Christmas movie spoofs via Weedmaps, which I thought were great:
