Pipes from William Shakespeare’s garden in Stratford-Upon-Avon have been forensically analyzed and were found to contain traces of cannabis. Are you shocked? I’m not shocked.

Texas Authorities Are Seriously Trying To Imply Marijuana May Have Contributed To Sandra Bland’s Alleged “Suicide”

Let me just start this post off by saying FUCK YOU to CNN and MSNBC, two news networks that chose to cut away from today’s press conference on the pathological findings and initial autopsy results in the death of Sandra Bland in favor of covering the latest stop on Donald Trump’s Presidential Horseshit Traveling Circus.

Cotton Vagina: When Smoking Weed Makes Your Twat Dry As Hell

As a relatively frequent practitioner of what I call “stoney sex,” I’m all too familiar with the benefits (heightened sensations!) and bummers (kissing with cottonmouth!) of smoking weed before fucking. But I gotta admit I haven’t noticed what Vice says is boner-killing side effect of smoking pot: cotton vagina, aka vaginal dryness. You know how when someone smokes weed…

10 Blog Post Ideas I’ve Had While High And Never Followed Through On (Plus, A Poll!)

One of the benefits of smoking weed for me is that being stoned gives me really kind of fantastic blog post ideas. (There are obviously some terrible ideas too, but let’s not discuss those.) Sometimes I actually make those ideas a reality. This “Semi-NSFW Guide For Men On How To Dress And Undress For Maximum

What Your Stoned Paranoia Says About You & How To Deal With It So You Can Just Enjoy Being High

It’s true what they say: smoking weed can make you paranoid. Not everyone experiences an anxiety spiral when they smoke, but getting high does produce a heightened feeling of awareness — of yourself, of others, and of how others see you. On the surface, these paranoid feelings can often seem totally irrational — no, the…

Help! “Can You Recommend A Sophisticated Bong?”

Do you have a recommendation for a grown-up bong? Husband and I have had to jettison them in recent moves and I want to get him a nice one for his birthday now that we will be stationary for the next few years. Other than just going to a head shop and buying the blue…

High There Is Tinder For Potheads

Dating is hard enough, but imagine being a marijuana smoker trying to find love in a country that still, by and large, criminalizes their favorite herbal remedy. All you want is to find a like-toking pothead with a Volcano and a dealer on speed dial, but alas, your OKCupid matches are hit-or-miss. That seemingly cool…

Bethenny Frankel, Genius, Is Making Pot That Won’t Give You Munchies

The greatest struggle in my life is the desire to not eat after 9:00 p.m. (as recommended by nutritionists, doctors, and that one ex-boyfriend who dumped me for “having the penchant to become chubby one day”) — a healthy life habit that is a complete antithesis to my other healthy life habit: smoking a j…

This Is What Happens When A High School Student Allows A Teacher To Take A Bite Of His Pot Brownie

It was just another day at high school in Arnold, Maryland when one little pot brownie changed the game. The story goes like this: a student was eating his beloved brownie in class, sharing with his girlfriend (as you do) who sat nearby, when their teacher approached and asked for a bite of the brownie.

Are Women The New Face Of Marijuana Use?

What comes to mind when you picture someone who uses marijuana? For many it’s the stereotypical image of a lazy, spacey, and possibly dirty stoner who listens to The Grateful Dead, prefers hemp as their jewelry of choice, and is always good for a laugh or two. Recently, however, mainstream publications like Vogue, Elle and…

In their new documentary, “Weed The People,” filmmakers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein profile the story of Sophie Ryan, who at seven months, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

Frisky Rant: I Don’t Understand Why You People Smoke Pot

One of the more ridiculous conversations I’ve had in my life — and I’ve had many — was about smoking pot. One of my friends at work told me he’d been smoking and driving and got pulled over for a broken tail light and got paranoid, and I guess I was supposed to laugh, but…
