With Canada recently legalizing the widespread use of recreational cannabis, we are now, at least unofficially, seeing the beginning stages of the end of marijuana prohibition as we know it. The legalization in Canada remains a huge milestone in the fight for recreational green, as it's become the largest country to legalize pot, and the second country overall (behind Venezuela).
It's crazy how far America has come since the age of Reefer Madness. I wonder what people would have said, back then, if we told them that pot would soon be legal in many US states.
Weed...weed...weed; the most hated, misunderstood, and controversial plant to ever be discovered. Why is that? Why is alcohol accepted partly everywhere in the world but is statistically more deadly than cannabis?
With cannabis being a huge part of my life, it should come as no surprise that April 20th is always celebrated in the @Ak_Word household. The hardest part of the day is finding something to do, everyone has some kind of party, but how can you tell what’s worth it? The only way to know for sure is word of mouth from a reliable source.
There are a lot of different ways to enjoy a good smoke, or make a good smoke great. That's why so many stylish accessories for potheads exist on the market, and why people are even trying out new bong water alternatives to bolster the flavorful hits they inhale.
2017 has had some seriously insane moments. We've seen some ugly political arguments, the repeal of Net Neutrality, and some of the nation's top officials get indicted by the FBI. Overall, it's been a pretty dismal year in many ways.
Music, a big part of our daily life, and something we all love to share. No matter your music taste, whether you love all genres or pick and choose I am sure you will find something on this list. These are all of my personal favorites to listen to stoned, and favorites my friends listen to. Feel free to post some of your favorites on Twitter and don't forget to tag @thehypepipe!
In High Places 420: [September 6th, 2017]
Entities of commerce often make strange bedfellows. A great example of how marijuana’s intersection with the wider culture yields surprising synergies between products happened in Los Angeles over the weekend when Netflix, the streaming-TV media giant, opened a pop-up store at a local medical-marijuana dispensary to sell various strains of marijuana as a promotion specifically for one of its newest shows and for other Netflix shows. “Netflix and chill,” indeed.
Drive thru retail is as much a part of American culture as apple pie, fireworks, and angry political debates. It's not quite sure why this is the case. It could be the convenience, the quirkiness of it, or just the fact that it's a simple way to hang out in a car while actually getting things done.
The story I'm about to tell you is completely true, from start to finish this masterpiece of a night out is completely factual, backed up by collaborators to make sure I hadn't taken drugs too, tripping off my face and imagining it. So buckle up and pretend you have nothing better to do for the next 10 minutes.
