The New Approach Oregon campaign to legalize and regulate marijuana is ramping up it’s efforts after turning in over 145,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office. If signature verification goes well, Oregon will be joining Alaska and hopefully Washington D.C. during the 2014 Election and giving voters the chance to legalize marijuana at the ballot box. Florida voters will have the chance to legalize medical marijuana, in addition to local marijuana legalization initiatives in Michigan. The New Approach Oregon campaign released its first campaign video. Retired middle school teacher [...]

As the popularity of concentrates continues to grow, so do questions about the many forms that dabs can take. In this video, we’re taking a closer look at the three main types of concentrates — Shatter, Budder and Oil. Shatter is smooth, clear and solid. It is the purest and most potent form because it involves a second extraction process that removes fats, lipids and waxes. This can result in over 80 percent THC. However, it also means that terpenes are lost in the process. Budder retains more of the [...]
In this new TV ad, a doctor describes how his wife, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, could benefit from medical marijuana. He states, “knowing there’s a medication that could help my wife, but that medication is illegal here in New York, is agonizing,” and calls on Governor Andrew Cuomo to support the Compassionate Care Act. New Yorkers are urged to sign our Change.org Petition –http://www.change.org/petitions/tell-… – which calls on Governor Cuomo and Senate leaders to pass medical marijuana this year.
In this emotional TV ad, a mother calls out New York State Senator Dean Skelos for blocking a vote on the Compassionate Care Act, which would provide access to medical marijuana for people like her son.

New Yorkers are urged to sign our Change.org Petition –http://www.change.org/petitions/tell-… – which calls on Governor Cuomo and Senate leaders to pass medical marijuana this year.
I have been lucky enough to get my hands on quite a bit of memorabilia over the years. I have a Tommy Chong Bong. I have been given countless vaporizers, nug jars, and clothing. But I think one of the coolest things I’ve ever received is an autographed picture from Neill Franklin, the Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (L.E.A.P.). Anytime I can hear him speak is a good day. Below is video footage of Neill getting interviewed by valued contributor to The Weed Blog, Russ Belville:
I remember when I was growing up and started smoking marijuana, one of my favorite things to do was go into head shops and look at glass. I was obviously too broke to afford any glass of my own, but that didn’t stop me from going in and loitering and see what was the biggest bong they had, the most expensive pipe, and anything else that looked cool. Oregon is home to some amazing glass blowers. I’m still fairly broke, but over the years I’ve accumulated some pretty sweet glass. [...]
The first time I heard of Mike Boutin was on the show ‘Weed Country.’ I wasn’t a fan of the show, which is not uncommon. There are very few marijuana shows from mainstream media that I like. I will say though that Mike Boutin was about the only thing on that show that I liked. I liked the way he did business, and from what I hear, he is a very skilled grower. Below is footage of Russ Belville interviewing Mike Boutin at the ‘Meet the Experts’ event in Florida.
Steve Sarich has been a valued commenter on The Weed Blog for many years now. I always look forward to reading what he has to say. Sometimes we disagree, but that’s something that I welcome on this blog. We tend to agree most of the time. And I’ve always felt that more ideas are always better than less ideas, even if some people don’t agree with them. Below is video of Steve Sarich of the Cannabis Action Coalition, speaking at Volunteer Park, Seattle, May 10, 2014:
Snoop Dogg, B-Real, Redman and Method Man discuss getting busted while traveling, smoking weed on movie sets and being banned overseas in volume III of the ‘High on Mount Kushmore series.’ High Times has added these four men to ‘Mount Kushmore’. Do you agree that they should be included? If not, who do you feel should be on Mount Kushmore? Whether they make it or not, these are four of my marijuana entertainment heroes for sure.
