Melissa Etheridge On The Smokebox With BReal

B-Real has a rare smoke session with music icon and activist, Melissa Etheridge. The two talk about the importance of smoking cannabis and her up coming ventures in the final half of 2015. This is Melissa’s first and only time smoking on camera and what better person to share her coming out party with than B-Real, “The Biggest & Baddest Chiefer of All Time”. I really like The Smokebox episodes, which usually feature rappers. I was very, very happy to see that the latest video has Melissa Etheridge on it. Melissa has been a very outspoken supporter of medical marijuana, basing

The 2015 Global Marijuana March Was a Success

On Saturday marijuana reform supporters marched and rallied in hundreds of cities across the globe. I wasn’t able to attend the closest one to me (Portland) this year, but I heard great things from all over the world.

Below is a video that I found from the march in Vancouver. If you attended this years march in your area, please post your experience in the comments section so that others

Brother Talks About Missouri Man Spending Life In Prison For Marijuana

Jeff Mizanskey has been serving a life sentence for marijuana only offenses in Missouri for over two decades now. Yesterday a bi-partisan group of lawmakers in Missouri delivered 390,000 petitions to Missouri’s Governor Jay Nixon urging him to grant clemency to Jeff Mizanskey. No one should lose their freedom for marijuana, especially for the rest of their lives. Prison beds should be reserved for pedophiles, not marijuana consumers. Missouri Representative Shamed Dogan introduced a bill in the Missouri Legislature this year which would free anyone serving a life sentence for marijuana in Missouri, which essentially would only apply to Jeff Mizanskey.

Ben And Jerry's Ice Cream Releases Commercial For 4/20

Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream is unveiling a new product for 4/20, which of course is a marijuana holiday. The product is the ‘BRRR-ito!’, which is essentially an ice cream burrito, with the shell being a folded waffle cone, filled with ice cream. It had long been speculated that Ben and Jerry’s would enter the cannabis space with a marijuana infused ice cream in states that have reformed marijuana laws, which would allow such a product to be legally made and sold. Ben and Jerry cleared the air on HuffPost Live as to what it would take to bring a product like

The 2015 Denver High Times Cannabis Cup Starts Today

Ever since Colorado legalized recreational marijuana, I have considered Denver to be the place to be for 420 activities, and specifically, the High Times Cannabis Cup.

Chalk it up to poor life planning Anyhow, if you are lucky enough to be in Denver, and have tickets to the Cup, you are in for quite a treat. Below
