Strain Reviews: Pootie-Tang

Starbuds’ Pootie-Tang   What we enjoyed: too cool for words; looks like someone left it in a freezer for a month; might help you earn an advanced degree (upon completion of pre-requisites)   We have had a gloriously busy day. After an early morning flight, our first trip to a legal cannabis shop as a […]

Baltimore: Drug War Casualty

    The first thing I notice is all the garbage, then the assembling crowd. All have something in their hands. It’s mostly shovels and brooms. The mess has been neatly collected in heavy-duty black trash bags and piled up in front of a store with broken windows. It’s just past 10 in the morning. […]

Edibles Review: Sweet Grass Kitchen Pumpkin Pie

*Edibles Disclaimer: Eating too much cannabis can be a terrifying experience. If you are new to edibles please proceed with caution.

Marijuana Monkey Murders with Adam Eidinger

  “Pick a few monkeys…and kill them.”     I sit before a victorious Adam Eidinger at a table bearing the spoils of that victory.

Strain Reviews: Orange Sour Dub

Mindful’s Orange Sour Dub   What we enjoyed: smells like Chinese food; made everything powerfully hilarious; the right combination of uplifting and relaxing; perfect for an afternoon with friends.     The train from Schiphol Amsterdam Airport to central station takes about 20 minutes. It always felt like a lot longer than that. Recalibrating from […]

Functioning Member: Lousy Smarch Weather

  It will be 60 degrees today, for two hours, if you are standing in the sun. Yesterday it was near freezing and so windy we could feel blasts of leftover winter plowing through our upstairs windows. Friday’s forecast features a picture of a snowflake. It’s making us a little crazy; all we want is […]
