First Legal Marijuana Purchased In Seattle Donated To Museum

Legal cannabis sales started in Washington on July 7th. The first legal purchase in Seattle was made by 65 year old grandmother Deb Greene at Cannabis City. Rather than consume some of the cannabis she purchased, Deb Green instead donated some of the cannabis to Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry. Per Time: She purchased two bags of legal weed, one for personal use and another that was signed by Cannabis City owner, James Lathrop, so it could be “saved forever,” Greene told the Seattle Times. “You don’t use history.” It’s pretty heartening [...]

The Importance Of Purging Your Dab Torch

By Aarr Kellz, Spaceship Earth Farms The Why… When you first take a brand new torch out of the box it has been freshly manufactured and sometimes the torch’s gas chamber has a little oxygen left over inside that needs to be purged before you fill the chamber with butane. If the oxygen is not completely purged then it can cause some problems in the torch like prematurely extinguishing the flame or not allowing enough butane into the flame to be as powerful as intended. This is because oxygen is [...]

Washington D.C. is going to vote on marijuana legalization this November. Washington D.C. joins Oregon and Alaska, who are also going to be voting on marijuana legalization during the 2014 Election. The federal government will no doubt weigh in on all three areas if they pass, however, Washington D.C. is likely to receive the most federal scrutiny since Washington D.C. is not a state. Congress blocked Washington’s medical marijuana program funding for a long, long time. And after Washington D.C. passed marijuana decriminalization reform, there were attempts by Congress to [...]

Canada Court Rules In Favor Of Marijuana Edibles And Topicals

Marijuana infused products are not new, but they are certainly growing in popularity. Marijuana edibles like brownies and cookies are a great way to medicate. They don’t require inhaling anything, and the effects can be felt for a lot longer compared to inhaling vapor or smoke. Marijuana topicals are very effective at treating arthritis and tendinitis. I have bad tendinitis, and the only thing that works for me is marijuana topicals. Pharmaceuticals, over the counter or prescription, have done nothing for me. Health Canada allows medical marijuana to be consumed [...]
