    The Woman with the Pierced Ear

    The Woman with the Pierced Ear

    It was 1994, I had just returned from Mormon camp, hating life, as I was forced to go by my strict, abusive & negligent parents. Kurt Cobain had committed suicide & my Jr High School was just devastated. Kurt was the voice & the hero for my friends & myself . For me, Kurt's lyrics were a way for me to escape in my mind space, the years of verbal & physical abuse that was in my household. He understood me, his words were a blanket of comfort to me. I couldn't physically escape anywhere; I was forced to go to Mormon classes weekly. My mother, after her second divorce, became a single parent with 5 children, trying to work to support a family alone. Because of this, I would be left home alone to watch my 4 younger siblings ALL THE TIME.... I mean, I was only a kid & was forced with abuse, to watch children, when I should have had that time period to be a teenager. This may seem to be a common thread in households with cultish like religious followers, who have more children than they are capable of taking care of, but I digress. Then, it was off to school, also learning viola at that time, all while acting “normal”, like I wasn’t being broken at home. Amongst all the stress that I had as a child & teenager, Nirvana's music along with loads of Alternative rock at that time, was my safe zone. But the music can only take a person so far in their own mind, when a home life was always in shambles.

    5 Ways to Hemp Your Life (and Why)

    Hemp is inarguably one of the most versatile and useful plants on the planet. In fact, it was so important to our economy that farmers in the colonial days were once required to grow hemp for use of the fibers to produce commodities like paper, ropes, and fuel. The declaration of independence was drafted on hemp paper, George Washington and John Adams farmed hemp, and President Abraham Lincoln used hemp oil to fuel his lamps.

    How Much Does Weed Cost Across the United States?

    As American states legalized marijuana in the past decade, they have created a jumble of small-scale economies. These economies are subject to state law and are walled off by firewalls; No gram can legally cross the state line.

    Intense drug expience

    It was a summer night. probably mid June or July, I can't really remember but it was a day my friend Dom and I decided to do DMT for another time. We have each expiernced this drug but never together. The expiernce of this drug is said to be the expiernce of birth/death. A little background of DMT aslo known as Dimethyltryptamine, is a chemical substance that occurs in many plants and animals and which is both a derivative and a structural analog of tryptamine. It can be consumed as a psychedelic drug and has historically been prepared by various cultures for ritual purposes as an entheogen. Point being this is a very strong drug. As I've stated I have taken this drug before is its own story in iteself, but the result was I basically saw my true self from another lense. Back to the strory.

Plus, drug tests are often unexpected, and somebody who smokes marijuana probably doesn’t want to lose their job over something that is arguably less harmful than smoking tobacco, for example. Nevertheless, if you think that you might have a drug test in the near future, and you want to be prepared, here’s how you can pass it.

    Firehouse

    Firehouse

    It was the summer before my first year of college that I began to frequent a dispensary, off Main Street, Chula Vista. This dispensary was a temple of divine energy in my eyes. The bright green neon numbers encompassing the outside wall. The roasted smell of cannabis that filled both outside and inside. The weird white dude that stood in-front, (probably high as fuck), waving an affirmation sign that read, “You’re Here”. As if I was too high to recognize my own temple. Bitch, I knew where I was. I got stoned quite a ton this summer. One can almost argue that I smoked a literal ton of weed, and the best part of it all was that I was actually getting all my marihuana goodies at an establishment rather than some shady dude named Jerry who sold out of his shitty Honda civic. I want weed sir, not Hepatitis C.
