Remember the days when you had to hide in your parents’ basement just to smoke some weed? Thanks to marijuana legalization, that isn’t a necessary evil anymore! That doesn’t, of course, mean that there aren’t still many who do it. But there are much cooler places that are now safe to smoke weed. Even in places where marijuana is still illegal, there are places that you can avoid being caught by bosses, teachers, and police. Anyone who has ever smoked weed knows that set and setting are extremely important. So in order to create the best possible marijuana experience, it’s important to choose somewhere completely badass to smoke.

If marijuana tourism is your kind of thing, then I’ve got a whole list of places worth traveling to. If you’re not really into traveling – that’s okay too. My years of experience smoking marijuana have made me a connoisseur of finding discrete yet beautiful places to get high and ways to hide the smell of weed if you don’t want to go out from the comfort of your home. Remember, folks, that not ending up in jail is the best way to end a smoking session.

Colorado

Did you know that weed has been legal in Colorado for over 5 years? That’s right – recreational use has been a part of the culture in Colorado since 2012. That makes it one of the safest places to smoke weed. As long as you are 21 years or older, you have the legal right to participate in the US marijuana culture in Colorado. If you’re a Colorado resident, then you’re free to be in possession of up to an ounce. However, as a tourist, you’re limited to a quarter at a time. No wonder people are flocking to Colorado to enjoy top quality, legal weed.

California

Let’s be honest. California has always been one of the weed capitals of the world. Even the Beatles were smoking the herb in Dolores Park long before recreational marijuana laws came into place. But now you can safely walk down the streets of San Francisco with a joint in your hand and nobody can tell you that you can’t! There are so many cool places to smoke weed in San Francisco, such as Twin Peaks and Dolores Park. If you’re into beaches, then smoking a joint as the sun sets over Venice Beach in LA is another favorite stoner pastime. The 420 Treehouse is another famous Bring-Your-Own-Weed location in LA. Even if you don’t have any weed of your own, you can basically guarantee that you’ll find someone selling it there!

Washington

Although it might not be the USA’s most popular tourist destination, Washington is a super safe place to smoke weed. Initiative 502 made it legal for Americans (and tourists) to smoke weed in Washington, although it’s not as exciting as states like California and Colorado on the shop front. Having said that, one of the biggest weed parties in the USA takes place in Seattle at Hemp Fest. If stoners are looking for a more low key place to safely get high, Washington is a winning choice.

Outside of the USA

It’s true that the USA has become one of the legal weed capitals of the world. Californian breeders have become famous worldwide for producing some of the finest strains. But it wasn’t always that way. In fact, there are many places outside of the USA where it is also safe to smoke weed. Add these places to your next international weed adventure!

Amsterdam

Duh! Amsterdam has been one of the weed capitals for a very long time. People have been flocking to Amsterdam to get a taste of Dutch weed for much longer than they’ve been sampling US weed. Well, maybe not that much longer. But in any case, Amsterdam is one of the most badass places to smoke weed. It’s completely safe to wander into coffee shops and take your pick from enormous menus of smokeables, edibles and even truffles! The rules are generally that you can’t smoke in public, but there’s no real need to when there are coffee shops everywhere. Plus, you can always stock up with top quality herb and go back and smoke in your hotel room!

Uruguay

Interestingly enough, Uruguay was one of the first countries to jump on board with marijuana legalization. None of us were expecting it from a South American country, were we? But in 2013, Uruguay made it legal for its citizens and visitors to smoke the herb – at a price everybody can love. The Uruguayan president legalized weed for just $2.50 a gram. It also makes for an extremely exotic holiday destination. The beaches and cities of Uruguay aren’t just safe – but are also really beautiful places to go and get high!

Basically any weed rally or event

If you find yourself at a weed rally or weed event – anywhere in the world – you can bet that it’s a safe place to get high. The truth is that you’ll be hiding among hundreds of thousands of stoners, all who will be lighting up. All of your fellow stoners will be creating a safely hidden environment for you to smoke in!

Safely discrete places to smoke weed

If you don’t live in a country where it’s legal to smoke weed, you should still have no fear. The truth is that the law never really stopped anybody. The trick with smoking in un-weed-friendly countries is to pick your location wisely. It’s important to remain discrete, but that doesn’t mean having to hide from the world, either. If you’re smart about it, your smoking experience can be both safe and extremely beautiful.

Drive out to the country

There aren’t usually police officers roaming the forests outside of town. But the countryside is a beautiful place to smoke weed. In the countryside you’re free to smoke a joint by a river or lake, or even climbing to the top of a hill to enjoy your smoke. There is definitely nobody coming to interrupt you there, while you enjoy one of the most relaxing smokes in the world. Next time you want to have a smoking session, grab a couple of friends and go for a drive to the woods. You won’t regret your choice to smoke weed in nature!

In front of a bonfire

As long as your bonfire isn’t taking place in a bin under the city’s biggest bridge, you can guarantee yourself an awesome place to smoke weed. Having a fire in your backyard or even somewhere out in nature is relaxing even without something to smoke. But when you add weed to the picture, you’ve created one of the best settings to get high in. Everybody loves to sit around a fire and tell stories. Plus, the smell and smoke of the fire will completely cover up any evidence that you’ve been smoking the herb! You can even blame your bloodshot eyes on the smokey fire!

On the beach

If you live by the ocean, it’s one of the best places to get high. This is especially true if you live in a quiet beach town that has miles and miles of coastline to enjoy. Walking down the beach with a joint is arguably one of the most satisfying things in life. It’s also a safe place you can go without being harassed by police or by your parents. Hopefully the wind carries away the smell of your weed and nobody will be any wiser!

Apartment rooftops

From the rooftop of your apartment (or a friend’s apartment), you can enjoy a world while looking out over the whole city. We all know that smoke rises, and if you’re on the roof, there’s nobody above you to sniff out what you’re smoking. Even the people down below won’t be searching for the smell way above their heads. If police did happen to spot you from the street or another building, you’d have more than enough time to destroy the evidence before they made their way up to you.

Get high at music concerts

Somehow, even in places where weed is illegal, music concerts are a famous place to get high. There’s something about being crammed in with thousands of other people that makes it feel almost private. There are countless times I’ve been at a music festival or concert and smelled weed coming from all directions. It’s almost impossible to find the source of it, until someone mysteriously passes you the joint. It seems like it comes from nowhere and disappears back into the huge crowd! If security or police makes eye contact with you, just discretely pass it to the person next to you. Before you know it, that joint will be on the other side of the mosh pit.

On a boat

If you’ve never smoked weed on a boat, it’s an experience that must be had. There is something super satisfying about smoking weed while floating on a river or the ocean. It also probably has something to do that there definitely aren’t police waiting for you out there. Floating along the water makes smoking weed an even more relaxing experience than it usually is. If one of your friends has a boat, try going for an early morning smoke on the ocean.

Report unveils largest donors to pro-legalization campaigns ahead of November 3 elections

Avatar

Published

on

A new report from Leafly released this week revealed the largest contributors to cannabis legalization campaigns in the United States ahead of the November 3 elections. 

According to campaign finance records, initiatives fighting to bring legal weed to a number of states this year have seen a fair amount of funding, the bulk of which came from cannabis companies and entrepreneurs. Other donors include unions, reforms advocates, private individuals and dispensaries. 

On the other hand, those financing anti-legalization efforts appear to be cash-strapped in comparison to donors contributing hundreds of thousands of dollars to support legal weed in Arizona, Montana, Mississippi, South Dakota and New Jersey, with significant contributions to the pro-psilocybin mushroom campaigns in Oregon and Washington D.C. as well.

Arizona

Leafly reports the legalization campaign in Arizona has raised nearly $3.5 million so far. Two new polls revealed the state appears to be likely to legalize cannabis this November, which means Arizonans will be able to legally purchase up to an ounce of weed soon.  

Cannabis companies were identified as the largest donors to Smart & Safe Arizona, the activists behind the initiative for legal pot in Arizona. These include Harvest, an Arizona-based medical marijuana company that has donated almost $1.5 million. Curaleaf and Cresco Labs have also donated several hundred thousand dollars to the campaign.  

Montana

Out of all the states that will vote on cannabis measures next month, Montana has raised the largest sum so far at over $7 million. Again, polls indicate the state is likely to legalize weed on November 3, when Montana residents will vote on a pair of measures to allow sales of marijuana to adults aged 21 and over. 

A PAC nonprofit organization from Washington D.C. dubbed The North Fund has been funneling millions into Montana’s legalization campaign. The money didn’t go unnoticed as anti-marijuana activists in Montana filed a complaint against the group recently, asking for The North Fund to disclose its donors. The North Fund donated $4,800,000 to New Approach Montana so far. 

New Jersey 

Another state which looks set to legalize marijuana on November 3 is New Jersey, where the top donor to the pro-legalization campaign has been The Scotts Company, a gardening and pest control company. Weedmaps donated $91,000 to the pro-legalization campaign, which enjoys support from New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. 

A legal weed market in New Jersey could shape up to be one of the most lucrative in the country as neighboring states with large populations such as New York and Pennsylvania haven’t legalized cannabis. 

South Dakota

South Dakota will be the first state to vote on legalizing both medical and recreational sales in the same election. The state’s November ballot will feature both initiatives, which seem to be popular in Montana. 

The campaigns have raised over $1 million in donations so far, with national legalization groups contributing the largest sums. A restaurant owner from Sioux Falls ranks third on the list of campaign contributions with a $25,000 donation to the efforts.

Mississippi

Voters in Mississippi are heading to the polls to weigh in on medical marijuana legalization this November as well. The group behind the campaign has amassed over $1 million in donations so far.

Joel Bomgar, who serves in the Mississippi House of Representatives, donated over half a million. The Republican politician and tech entrepreneur was a key sponsor of the effort to legalize cannabis for medicinal use in Mississippi. 

Oregon and Washington D.C. 

Along with voting in the presidential election, voters in Oregon could legalize the therapeutic use of psilocybin found in psychedelic mushrooms. If voters approve the measure, Oregon will become the first U.S. state to allow the legal use of psilocybin. 

The New Approach PAC donated over $2.5 million to the effort, while other donors include entrepreneurs and a psychedelic therapy company. 

In Washington D.C., where people will cast their ballots on decriminalizing so-called magic mushrooms, the New Approach PAC donated $585,500 to the Decriminalize Nature D.C. campaign.

Will Legal Synthetic Cannabinoids Take Over Cannabis Industry?

Avatar

Published

on

We live in a world of synthetics. Most of our clothing is no longer cotton, but a mix of plastics. Much of our food is made of chemicals that can barely be pronounced. And now cannabis, our favorite smokable medicine and recreational pastime, might be replaced soon with legal synthetic cannabinoids.

It’s a world of synthetics

My mother used to work with a guy that had a great hookup for getting Coach bags. For anyone unfamiliar with the brand, Coach produces high quality leather bags, that come with a nice high price tag. My mother was buying tons of them, passing them on as gifts, and using a different one herself every day. They weren’t real of course, although I don’t remember how she found this out. They were knock-offs. Products that looked almost exactly the same, that felt almost exactly the same, but were actually made of entirely different materials, and overall of lesser quality. My mother was very unhappy when she realized what was going on, and never spoke again to her workmate who had bamboozled her, but buying synthetic products is pretty standard, and a lot of the time, most people never know that what they have isn’t the real thing.

Aren’t synthetic cannabinoids already a big thing?

Yes! Massive! In fact, if you read around the internet, you might get a little confused. Every time you see words like ‘spice’ and ‘k2’ being spoken about in reference to cannabis, its referring to synthetic cannabinoids. So, what’s the difference between these synthetic cannabinoids, and the legal synthetic cannabinoids that biotech industries are rushing to create and put on the market? Good question. While large biotech firms have the money and ability to make different concoctions, they aren’t technically producing anything terribly far off from the illegal version that people are constantly being warned against with terror stories of a few people dead over years of time. In the article cited it should be noted that most of the deaths weren’t even attributed to the synthetic cannabis, but rather a rat poison contaminant. Of course, somehow, those stories are all forgotten, or pushed aside, when the synthetics being spoken about come from companies that can sell their products above board, and have them taxed by the government. Funny how that works, right? While I suppose one could make the argument that its regulated vs unregulated, and that one is more dangerous than the other, the lack of relevant deaths from the unregulated version (no matter how much the very few that occur are publicized, let’s remember what it really means to have an epidemic of overdoses), and the standard story of putting down the one that doesn’t make the government tax dollars, while promoting the one that does – and which brings billions to large biotech companies – isn’t an unfamiliar story at all. So no, synthetic cannabis is far from new. I was smoking Mr. Nice Guy in Tel Aviv 10 years ago, and word on the street back then is that it was all synthetics. Now, with a massive 180º, the very thing being warned against constantly, is now the new thing being pushed by large biotech corporations.

CBG, or cannabigerol, a cannabinoid that makes up only about 1% of a cannabis plant by the time of harvest, and which has been associated – much like CBD – with pain management, as an anti-inflammatory, with neurodegenerative diseases, and with glaucoma. In fact, Willow Biosciences, has partnered with manufacturer Albany Molecular Research to create a large scale production of the cannabinoid – which also like CBD, has not been associated with psychoactive effects, making it a good addition to the medical cannabis family.

Willow is a Canadian company out of Calgary, but it’s already got a lot of competition. US based Biomedican Inc., of Fremont, California, is giving Willow a run for its money, claiming to already have a CBG strain that’s ready for mass production. Two other companies,  Demetrix and Amyris, are also looking to get specifically into the CBG game. In what is to me an incredibly and profoundly misconstrued statement, Headset, which apparently tracks cannabis trends, made the statement that cannabinoids on the market today are currently plant-derived for the most part, particularly with products like vape pens, but that synthetic versions should be coming soon. Now, this thought would have a lot more meaning if we weren’t constantly being told to stay away from ‘spice’ and ‘k2’, which are black market synthetic cannabinoids. In fact, the majority of vape pens being sold in a place like California, which has the biggest legal cannabis market, are knock-offs, and that means synthetic cannabinoids!! Whoever made the statement at Headset, which was picked up by Inquirer, must have only been speaking of the legal market, and the thing about cannabis, is that if you’re only looking at the legal market, you’re missing so much of what goes on. So much so that we’re having a conversation about legal synthetic cannabinoids as if they just came out, when the majority of us vaping pens, or smoking ‘fake weed’, have been using them for years…and generally without incident.

What are they making synthetics of?

Pretty much anything that can be isolated from the cannabis plant and serves some understood value. CBN, CBG, THC-A, THC-V, Delta-8 THC… This is probably a good time to remind about Marinol. While this whole discussion goes on about synthetics, its easy to forget that along with all the black market synthetics that are warned against, there’s also Marinol. Marinol, also known as Dronabinol, is an entirely synthetic cannabis medication which has been around since 1986 and is produced by several pharmaceutical companies at this point. So, not even pharmaceutically a new idea, it is quite possible that pharmaceutical versions of cannabis may not have, as of yet, made the dent in the industry that they were intended to.

patented, at least not in their natural form. However, changed, or synthetic versions, can be. So, while the cannabis game has been hard for pharmaceutical companies to control – creating a non-plant version gives our biotech and pharmaceutical compatriots a way to create a substance that can be patented.

What to expect

The general expectation is that the biotech and pharmaceutical industries will do everything they can to co-op the medical marijuana and general legal cannabis industries. Whether it will work or not is a different story. Sometimes pharmaceutical companies don’t have the pull they wish. If they did, everyone would be using Marinol, and Sativex already, and that’s not the case. The problem with cannabis, when it comes to big pharma, is that cannabis isn’t a pharmaceutical drug unless its made to be one. If the people are never interested in these new medical advents, then the old rules remain, and people keep smoking the plant. If big pharma can produce a product at the right price point, that’s accessible enough, and gets the job done, it could be a very different story. In this particular instance it’s an interesting battle for the market, and its hard to say how it will go. In the case of cannabis, the thing to remember is that we don’t technically need all this, and the more production that goes into it, the higher the cost, and the more need to find synthetic answers.

The takeaway

It looks like the legal medicinal cannabis market, (and possibly recreational one), will soon be flooded with legal synthetic cannabinoids. What will this really mean? Well, that’s up to all of you. If you want your plant to be a plant, then smoke your plant and nature wins. If you’re cool with the synthetic version, that go out and use it. The ability of the synthetic market to do well has mainly to do with the ability of biotech companies and governments to convince their people that synthetics are a better answer.

Majority of Montana voters support weed legalization ahead of November 3 vote

Avatar

Published

on

Voters in Montana appear to be set to legalize recreational cannabis in their state on November 3, the results of a new poll revealed this week. 

The state ballot will ask about legalizing recreational marijuana in Montana.

“Will you vote to support or oppose legalization?” the survey asked likely voters in Montana. Among them, 49% said they will vote to legalize marijuana, while 39% responded they would oppose the measure. Ten percent of voters said they are still undecided on the matter, but their votes could decide the fate of legal weed in Montana. 

Support for legal pot was higher among Democrats, as expected, with 70% of Democrat-voting respondents stating they would support legalization. On the other hand, only 27% of Montana Republicans said they are in favor of legal weed. Meanwhile, 59% of independent voters will vote to legalize marijuana. 

According to the poll, the initiative to legalize cannabis in the Treasure State is more popular among younger voters, with a majority of people between the ages of 18 and 59 stating they favor the measure. Most of the voters above the age of 60 said they intend to vote against legalization. 

The poll was conducted by Montana State University and gauged voter sentiment on a number of other elections that will take place on November 3, including the presidential race. As young voters interested in legalizing marijuana tend to vote for Democrats more often than for Republicans, having cannabis on the ballot could also affect the outcome of the Senate, House and presidential elections as well. 

Should Montana legalize pot, adults aged 21 and over will be able to legally purchase weed, while a 20% sales tax would be added to marijuana products. Furthermore, people with low-level marijuana sentences will be eligible for resentencing or the expungement of their records.

Earlier this week, a poll from New Jersey revealed the Garden State is also likely to legalize cannabis on November 3. Additionally, Arizona and South Dakota will vote on their respective legalization measures, while Mississippi voters will decide whether to allow medical marijuana in the state.

Meanwhile, Oregon will decide on a measure that would legalize psychedelic mushrooms for therapeutic use as voters in Washington D.C. weigh in on decriminalizing so-called magic mushrooms.
