With over half of the country in favor of the legalization of cannabis medicinally, recreational or both, it is my absolute pleasure to be able to share with you how trimming my own medicine has more healing properties than just smoking it.
The first time I had ever smoked weed, I was probably about 15 or 16. I remember laying outside on the brick wall, and blowing out that first puff of smoke. It was night time and I remember thinking, oh wow, this is what it feels like. A sense of relaxation came over me like I had never felt. I remember everything being so enhanced. I could hear cars driving on the highway, that was about 5 miles from my house. I could hear the leaves blowing lightly in the trees. I could hear the crickets even climbing up the trees as the made their cricket noises. Well, it seemed that way anyways. And all the stars looked so brights and big. Then, after I laid outside for hours, I went in my kitchen and ate like it was a Thanksgiving feast. Well, not with the turkey and stuffing, but I ate everything I could get my hands on. Followed by the best, and longest sleep I had ever gotten.
That Time I Took Shrooms and Became Convinced That I Could Communicate with All Things
The squirrel in the picture — I called her Princess, only because her energy was girlish and dainty and entitled in the funniest way — I met around hour three of tripping on magic mushrooms. I spent the first two hours floating on a raft alone in the middle of the lake.
Only in America - Free Pot for a Shot
If anyone had told me as a teenager in the early '80s, that in 2021 marijuana would be legal for recreational use in 16 states (plus DC), I would have choked on my bong hit.
420 After 40
What better day to celebrate my return to the 'Cannabis Culture' than on National Weed Day or otherwise just known as 420; which can also designate the time of the day 'pot-smokers' toke up daily. Today I'll be using 420 as the term used to identify with the culture I once belonged to in my youth but left behind for a career as a diver in the United States Navy. Not that returning to the use is anything exciting or any earth-shattering news around here. Especially since I'm just an average middle-aged man that you'll find at any cannabis dispensary in California. There is nothing abnormal or deviant about what I'm doing now. That always hasn't been the case in my lifetime. What follows is my personal story of how my relationship with cannabis has changed over the years, as I aged and it's use has become quasi-legal and socially acceptable here in the United States.
Me, A Cannabis User
I wanted to start by clarifying that this article wasn't going to be about cannabis. The more I think about that, I would probably be lying if I started things out that way, so I'm just going to not do that. It's kind of difficult to pin down exactly what this is about from the outset, actually. Even with a handy outline at the ready, it is far easier to let this become something more like a stream of consciousness than a rigid essay on the merits and risks of cannabis use. The thing is, I just want to start writing about pot, really. I already write about comic books as a day job, and the writing challenges on this platform have been a great way to get the creative juices flowing towards working on my own fiction again, but I could write so much more.
Cannabis had an amazing evolution in America
If you are like me, you have probably at some point in time wondered how the Cannabis plant which grows naturally in the earth ended up being illegal in the United States. There is a long and dark path to how we got to where we are today. The hemp plant first arrived in this nation in 1545 after it was introduced to Chile. It was basically used for making ropes and came to North America at Port Royal, Acadia in 1606. By 1619, the demand for hemp had increased to the point that the Virginia Assembly passed legislation requiring colonists to grow the crop.
Best Cannabis Drinks and Why They’re Better than Edibles
Instead of waiting for the edibles to kick in or spending hours to prepare pot brownies, make your next party less stressful by stocking up on cannabis drinks. This subtle way to consume weed makes your habit even easier. Since the herb entered the culinary scene, it gotten turned into many things, but now we have landed on infused sodas, teas and juices, and we couldn’t be happier. However, if you never tried cannabis drinks, you might be wondering whether they are any different than edibles. Here’s everything you need to know about this new way of consuming cannabis, so you can make an educated choice when choosing your perfect drink for morning, afternoon or evening relaxation.
We're going deep into the weeds of the marijuana legalization conversation.

The cannabis market of Vancouver and its various aspects
Many people do not realize that Canada has a very unique culture compared to the United States.

Mary Jane and Me
Okay Mary Jane, Cannabis, Weed, Pot, and by the many more name's this plant goes by and has been a part of my life since a freshmen in high school.

Back then it wasn't anything like it is now in days. This story here is going to break things down in my lifetime on what I have learned and how it has helped me along my way.
I have an unconventional passion in life. Breeding medical marijuana cultivars is what I spend all my free time doing. Hand selecting the perfect terpene profiles to isolate and stabilize is an art. I have spent endless hours researching the genetic profiles that would create the ideal combination for relief of specific ailments. Narrowing phenotype expression is a labor-intensive process that takes a tremendous amount of time and dedication. Anyone can pollinate a plant and create seeds. Not everyone can successfully duplicate the results generation after generation.
