Rand Paul's Enlightening Words To Jeb Bush About Marijuana

During the second Republican Debate, the topic of marijuana was brought up and Rand Paul started the discussion like this: “I think one of the great problems, and what the American people don’t like about politics, is hypocrisy, people who have one standard for others and not for them—for themselves. There’s at least one prominent example on the stage of someone who says they smoked pot in high school. And yet, the people who are going to jail for this are poor people, often African Americans and often Hispanics, and yet the rich kids who use drugs aren’t.” If you

Legislation To Protect Marijuana In The Next Presidential Term

With the presidential election season in full power, it seems there is one thing on every marijuana enthusiast’s mind in legal states: who is going to protect my rights? Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, and Washington D.C. all have legal recreational marijuana, this is a big question in the upcoming election. Who is going to honor these states’ decision and who is going to shut it down when their term begin? Especially with the recent Republican debates, it seems some Republican candidates will have absolutely no problem showing up to Colorado’s door with federal agents. However, this question may soon be

Guns, Weed, And Gay Marriage

Man, is there anything more American sounding to you? That sounds like freedom to me! Guns, weed, and gay marriage! While guns and marijuana are most definitely an incredibly irresponsible mix together, their arguments seem to be mixing more and more as the 2016 presidential election nears closer. From what it seems the only thing that appears to be a bigger topic than Donald Trump’s ridiculous ego and racist comments is Colorado. Damn those Coloradans and their marijuana! Not doing what the federal government regulates as illegal is an inexcusable crime to most of the people on the Republican presidential

What Is The Most Popular Way To Consume Marijuana?

There has been a debate that has existed in the marijuana world since probably the very beginning. I know that a lot of ancient civilizations consumed marijuana in one way or another, and I’d imagine that even back then people debated the following question – what is the best way to consume marijuana? If cavemen consumed marijuana, then I can almost guarantee that they argued about which was the best way to consume that marijuana. I know people that only consume via a vaporizer. I also know people that will only use devices that involve water filtration. There of course

Where Is The Best Place To Buy Recreational Marijuana In Portland, Oregon On October 1st?

I love rooting for people that fight for social justice. Especially when their fight includes a David versus Goliath story, and marijuana. I have found my new favorite medical marijuana dispensary in Portland, Oregon. It’s called Panacea, and it’s located at 6714 NE Sandy Blvd. I had heard about Panacea for a little while now (they are about four months old), and everything I have heard was positive. I first heard about Panacea from my friends at Eclipse Farm-Ecology. I have the utmost respect for Eclipse because of how they put their ethics and carbon footprint considerations above business. And

What Is '710' And How Did 7/10 Become A Stoner Holiday?

Happy 7/10 from The Weed Blog! If you consume a lot of dabs, then I’m sure you are already aware that today is 7/10, and that 7/10 is a stoner holiday. However, I’m sure some of you are scratching your heads wondering what 7/10, or 710, means. You will see 710 come up a lot today, because after all, it’s July 10th, the ‘mostly official’ stoner dab holiday. Below are my thoughts about the holiday. Of course, if you are a dab historian, and you have exact dates (with proof!) of who started 710 and who declared it a holiday

Happy Father's Day 2015 From The Weed Blog

This is my second Father’s Day as a father myself. I always liked this holiday, but it became extra special when I became a father in late 2013. This Father’s Day is significant to me, and I think to all other responsible marijuana consuming fathers in Oregon, because it is the last Father’s Day that I’m celebrating while marijuana is still prohibited. This time next year, I will be celebrating Father’s Day as a truly free marijuana consumer. That may not seem like a big deal to someone that doesn’t consume marijuana, but to a marijuana consumer, being a parent

If NBA Player Kevin Durant Wants To Consume Marijuana, Who Cares?

I just saw a video of former MVP of the National Basketball League (NBA) Kevin Durant which shows him entering a vehicle, where what appears to be a container of marijuana falls out of the vehicle as he opens the door to it. The media is already ramping up, with some of them condemning Kevin Durant, others cracking jokes, and all kinds of other commentary. For starters, no one even knows if it is marijuana in the container. And two, even if it was marijuana, who cares? Below is a picture of the container in question, via TMZ:   Could the container

Colleges Should Cancel All Classes On 4/20

4/20 is already an international holiday celebrated by the masses. But until Bill Maher gets his wish, neither America nor the rest of the world will recognize 4/20 as a national or international day to celebrate the freedom of cannabis. And that’s foolish, because whether cannabis consumers and college stoners have 4/20 off or not, many of us will either take the day off or find time for a smoke break or 10. What makes 4/20 special is that it’s the one day a year that the person you’d least expect to smoke weed will likely ask you for a

How To Tell If Marijuana Dabs Are Good Or Bad

How Do You Determine If Cannabis Concentrates Are Good Or Bad? Are you new to the marijuana concentrates world? Do you know what ‘dabs‘ are? If you consume marijuana often enough, chances are you have taken at least one dab hit by now. For those of you that have yet to take a dab hit, maybe due to unavailability in your area or because you are a new consumer, you should really check it out. They say a dab will do ya, which is true. If you are like me, and you like to ride the ‘higher high’, dabs are
