Marijuana Vending Machines Open For Business

In the middle of January I don’t really understand why on earth I choose to live in New York. The temperatures are frigid, the sky is gray, and apartments are anything but well insulated. Today I have found yet another reason to pick up and move 2,000 miles across the country to where the climate is temperate and the sunshine abundant.

In LA you can now buy your medical marijuana (choice of 5 different strains) from a vending machine with your doctor’s prescription. These machines aren’t quite out on the street with Pepsi or Coca-Cola since you have to be fingerprinted and they’re watched over by security guards, but you’ve gotta admit, it’s still pretty sweet.

Now if only medical marijuana were legalized in New York it might cure those winter blues and make these unbearably dark and cold months pass a bit quicker.

Love Pink

Pink Pot

I bought this little sucker in Union Square a few months ago. It’s good to use as an ashtray or putting your broken up weed in while you’re getting ready to light one up. Plus, it’s pink! The little wire hook is quite convenient since I tend to hang everything up. Lovely little purchase.

Above The Influence

As I’m sitting here watching TV, which happens on rare occasion, a commercial comes on about a boy and his guitar, and another boy and his car. It shows that these are their prided objects with some nice elevator music in the background. Then it shows the one boy put his guitar onto the grill and watch it burn, whilst the other boy douses his car in gasoline and lights it on fire. Then a voice over proceeds to explain that marijuana is what caused the destruction in each of these scenarios.

I understand they’re trying to tell us that pot makes us throw our lives away. In a sense, you do get a lot lazier when you smoke, but you smoke to relax and do it when you’re relaxing. Am I wrong? It’s better than drinking a case of beer, or eating until you pass out, both of which are considered culturally acceptable ways to release stress. And both which produce results that last much longer than a high (pot doesn’t give you a hangover, nor does it make you gain ten pounds… if you can control your munchies).

It just seems silly that the media, government, etc. are still trying to equate marijuana with unnatural, pharmaceutically rendered drugs. It seems to be pretty common knowledge these days that hemp has tons of good things to offer us. It can really only be a matter of time before it’s legal.

At any rate, my response to that commercial was to pick up my bowl and take a big ol’ hit.

Red and Green

Starbucks Christmas cups and a tin full of weed.  A little post-holiday cheer to stay warm.

Grow Your Own!

Amsterdam Marijuana Seeds will ship all over the world. The site has plenty of strains to pick from and a detailed grow guide. I especially love their personal description:

“We are a group of stoners who dedicated our lives to collect,
breed and spread the seeds around the globe,
because we believe everybody has the right to experiment
with the goodness of Mother Nature for educational,
medicinal or recreational purposes.”

What are you waiting for? Go start your own plant!

Community Question: Mixers?

Anyone else out there like to occasionally mix their pot with other herbal smokes?

I like to use Egyptian Blue Lotus occasionally, makes things a little more sedate mentally. Of course, I have used tabacco, but now that I don’t smoke cigarettes there’s no point in that. I’ve heard Sinuichi is also a good mixer. Of course, a lot of smokers don’t like to mix their pot with anything. I like experiments. 😉

Chime in the comments and let me know what you think.
