The 2015 Weed Blog Award Winners

It’s nearing the end of the year, and so it’s time to start reflecting back on what has happened in the marijuana world over the past year. I have been looking at articles I’ve published over the last year, been talking to friends, and been asking questions on social media to get fans’ input on who should win an award for various categories. This is the third year that I have done these content-based awards. The Weed Blog awards are a no frills, ‘street cred only’ type of awards because it’s basically me just putting your name in the content

The Difference Between A Marijuana 'Edible' And A Cannabis 'Consumable'

Marijuana edibles are very popular. I once seen a statistic that stated 40-50% of all legal marijuana-related product sales in America are of edibles. I wouldn’t be surprised if that number grew in upcoming years. More and more people are either consuming marijuana for the first time now that recreational is legal in some states, or they are coming back after a long layoff. I have been trying to get my grandma to consume some cannabis since she’s retired, recreational marijuana is legal in Oregon, and would really benefit from it. She has told me that she would never smoke it

A Very Special Thank You To Kaliko And Best Wishes For Your Future Endeavors

I first heard about my buddy Kaliko Castille in 2011. I had graduated college as a ‘non-traditional student’ (meaning I was older than the traditional college student when I graduated, basically college’s version of passive age discrimination) just two years prior from the same university that Kaliko was then attending. I was at an alumni event for the department that I majored in with some faculty, and one of my former professors said that there was a guy that I had to meet. The guy’s name was Kaliko Castille, and he was trying to start a Students for Sensible Drug

Marijuana's Baptists And Bootleggers

The Baptist and Bootleggers theory is an economic idea that two very different groups of people with two very different goals will both push for very similar regulations and laws. Baptists being used to be descriptive of people that push for regulation and laws for “pure and well intentioned” reasons. The main example of this is Baptists pushing for dry counties for the sake of people in their county staying sober. Bootleggers are descriptive of people that want regulation and laws for “selfish and sinful” reasons. The main example of this being bootleggers in dry counties being able to drive

Which Is Better - Indoor Marijuana Or Outdoor Marijuana?

Is Indoor Cannabis Really Better Than Sun Grown Cannabis? It is harvest season all over the West Coast. October is called ‘Croptober’ by most marijuana enthusiasts because so many people are trimming and drying their outdoor gardens this month. From what I have seen on social media, it looks like the longer warmer weather has helped a lot of people’s crops. Brace yourselves West Coasters, the fall flood is beginning. Supplies on the West Coast are surging, and all the while prices for bulk marijuana is dropping. How low will it go? It’s tough to say. The market place has

So What if People Would Abuse a Medical Marijuana System?

As an activist, there are a plethora of excuses you hear day today about why medical marijuana should not be legal, and one that always stands out to me is: “people will abuse medical marijuana.” Their argument is that people will either over use their medical privileges or that they will use their medical card to buy for minors or people that do not have a medical card. To this I say of course. Of course people will abuse their medical marijuana privileges. People will over use their medication. People will use their medical card to sell to people that

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
