Colleges Should Cancel All Classes On 4/20

By Barry Bard 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

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

Do You Have A Marijuana Related New Year's Resolution For 2015?

It’s a brand new year. 2014 is history and 2015 is a mystery. People all across the globe made New Year’s resolutions leading up to the new year. Where you one of those? I had some interesting conversations with social media friends last night about marijuana related New Year’s resolutions. Did your New Year’s resolution or resolutions involve marijuana? Below are some of the ones that were brought up last night during my conversations: No bammer weed – I was surprised to learn that there are still a lot of people out there smoking brick weed. It’s likely because people have

What Is A 'Marijuana Tolerance Break' And Should You Take One?

There a handful of reasons why people take a break from consuming marijuana. The most likely reason is that you need to get a job, and that your desired employer drug tests. The second most common reason is that the break from consuming marijuana is court ordered do to forced rehab or probation or some other unfair reason. But another reason is what many refer to as a ‘marijuana tolerance break.’ A marijuana tolerance break is a good idea if you are not getting as high as you used to, and wish to get more out of the experience of

Nominate Someone For A 2014 Weed Blog Award

Last year was the first year that The Weed Blog released the ‘Weed Blog Awards.’ We didn’t have a fancy event or make sweet trophies because quite honestly, we just didn’t have the resources for that. However, I still felt the need to give respect where respect was due, and acknowledge people that made a difference in the marijuana world in 2013. I’m making it an annual thing here at TWB, and I want readers to nominate people in the comments section that they feel should win an award for their work in 2014. Below is a list of categories that

Oregon, DC, And Alaska Have A Chance To Save Big With Marijuana Legalization

An argument that doesn’t seem to have the weight it should among the legalization crowd is the amount that would be saved if the Drug War is ended. This argument should have a particular weight with your conservative friends. Maybe they won’t be sold on the fact that the Drug War is racially biased or the amount of people imprisoned by the Drug War, but their eyes will widen when they see the amount of taxes saved. Ankur Chawla, a writer for State Sight, released astounding numbers for what he predicted would be saved. His numbers accounted for law enforcement

What Is The Greatest 'Stoner' Movie Of All Time?

What Are The Top Stoner Movies Of All Time? There are few things that are as fun to me as consuming some marijuana and watching a good stoner movie. I don’t know if there is an official definition for what a stoner movie is, but you definitely know it when you see it. I don’t personally consider educational marijuana documentaries to be stoner movies, but a lot of my friends do, and I can live with that. Other people I know love movies that aren’t necessary entirely about marijuana, but are really fun to watch after consuming marijuana. I’m cool
