    These are just some random tips i threw together in no particular order I'm sure 90% of you know mostly everything on here but who knows you might learn something.
    • Invest in a grinder - Trust me guys, if your new to smoking weed and are still breaking it up with your hands, a grinder will make your life a whole lost easier plus in the end you will get a lot more herb out of it because when you break it up with your hands you just don't get it as fine as you would in a metal grinder. Don't get me wrong if you get that customgrow420 chronic then breaking it up with your hands might even be a better bake.
      Glass Nasa Bong
    • Glass Now this will be a little more controversial because i know a lot of you like your joints and blunts and i have met many many stoners who refuse to use glass and i have met a lot who will only use glass and so on. I think any stoner should have at least 1 glass piece around even if it is a little glass spoon bowl sometimes joints/blunts take a lot more weed that a simple bowl pack, i have put .2g in a bowl and gotten baked and i have put in 1g in a blunt and got just as baked so it is way more efficient. You don't have to go out there and get a scientific glass bong.
    • Know the quality of weed your smoking Okay so even if your a beginner i highly suggest you inform yourself on what good weed looks like and what bad weed looks like. You can be a first timer and i have seen many many friends come to me saying they just got some weed and wanted to smoke and they pull out some straight Reggie and say they paid 50$ for an eighth... If your buying off the streets make sure you get what YOU want i have met tons of people who prefer Reggie over the Cali chronic and i have met people who ONLY smoke the loud and so on so just make sure you get what you want and don't over pay.
    • Scales Okay another controversial thing and I'm not necessarily saying you should get a scale because sometimes its not even necessary however if you are in a illegal state and you are buying from anyone really and especially if your a first time buyer its always nice to have a scale or make sure they have a scale and weight it out because i cant tell you how many times i have been shorted .5 even so much as 2g once... Also when using a scale make sure you calibrate it first. What i do is i get a nickle put it on the scale let it sit there for a sec and do that a few times and make sure it weights out as 5g so you know it is accurate.
    • BE AWARE OF YOUR USAGE This is going to be a longer one, now I'm sure when MOST of us started smoking we all thought to ourselves oh this will only be a once in a very great while thing or ill only smoke when I'm with friends and that's how i was at first. After the first month of maybe smoking once a week i realised i wanted to do it more and by myself. 
    • Cannabis can be great, wonderful, but it can also be abused I know MANY MANY stoners who has to have cannabis every single day, and multiple times a day. There is a point where it can control your life there will come a time where you feel like you need it just like you need a cigarette if your a cig smoker, and that can be a bitch, honestly. I remember when i was 16 i was ONLY motivated to get a job simply to give me money to buy more weed and just be that, no intention to save up nothing and this is where weed can control your life if you feel like you need it then what you really need is to take a break.

    Despite new federal legislation making it easier for patients to grow marijuana at home, some medical specialists aren't so sure that's a good idea.


    Dr. Doug Smith, a Fredericton specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation, says while he's been prescribing marijuana for almost a decade and seen "quite a few remarkable stories of it being a life-changer," patients who grow their own cannabis might have less control over what they're getting.
    Previously, patients looking to grow medical marijuana or get someone else to grow it for them could only get seeds and plants from Health Canada.


    Under the new Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes regulations, patients can get seeds and plants from any producers licensed by Health Canada. As of this month, there are 34 licensed producers in Canada.
    "The therapeutic effects of marijuana can be quite variable depending on the strain, whether it's indica, sativa or hybrid," says Smith.
    Indica strains of marijuana produce a sleepy, relaxed effect, while sativa strains produce a more energizing, caffeine-like buzz.
    Despite the variable effects, Smith says cannabis is still safer than many, more traditional pain treatments.
    Since no lethal dose of cannabis has even been scientifically determined, one of the benefits of the plant versus opiates, says Smith, is that "a patient can't kill themselves with an overdose."
    Other doctors say the variability of cannabis presents challenges to physicians.

    Dr. Jeff Blackmer, vice president of Medical Professionalism with the Canadian Medical Medical Association, says "it's a legal, medical, and ethical requirement to make sure that the patient understands what is being prescribed, and a lot of doctors struggle with the fact that they don't have all the answers."
    "Even though a lot of patients say they've benefited from this, it's hard to know on a case-by-case basis which patients will," says Blackmer.
    Under the new rules, patients now have three choices when it comes to getting medical pot: register with licensed producers, grow their own with clearance from Health Canada or designate someone else to grow it for them.
    The new rules also include more specific guidelines for labelling and testing of cannabis projects.
    Part of the reason different types of cannabis aren't adequately understood, says Smith, is the "stigma surrounding cannabis — and it's going to take time for attitudes to change."
    Smith encourages patients to do their homework.
    "I find that the patients who have studied cannabis and have an understanding of the endogenous cannabinoid system are the ones that are able to make the best use of the product," he said.

    Medical marijuana easier to grow at home with new rules

    This week, Nathan Martinez’s family will head to the Oregon state fair to view the prize-winning plants he’s hydroponically grown and lovingly cultivated: both the sativa super sour diesel and the indica granddaddy purple.
    That’s right: one of the nation’s most family-friendly traditions – synonymous with the tilt-a-whirl, funnel cake and blue ribbon pigs – will feature marijuana plants.
    “Cannabis is taking its rightful place next to tomatoes and other agriculture,” said Don Morse, with the Oregon Cannabis Business Council, noting that it’s the first time pot plants have been displayed at a state fair.
    But unlike the tomatoes, the marijuana plants will only be viewable by those 21 and older. And the plants will be guarded by security. Still, cannabis advocates called it a monumental step in removing the stigma around a product they believe should be considered the same as any other Oregon crop.
    Mandy Seybert, 28, a pot farmer who will have a plant on display at the Oregon fair, believes it’s simply a matter of time before cannabis “is treated like any other plant – just like someone’s prized daisy”.
    To determine which nine marijuana plants would make history at the state fair in Salem, there was another first: a live cannabis competition at the Oregon cannabis growers’ fair from 13 to 14 August.
    In some ways, the growers’ fair was similar to any business expo; vendors pitched their products, including DIY pot-growing kits and child-resistant bags to store bud.
    At one of the larger vendor booths, Katie Joy, 24, assured a customer looking at her vaporizers that they were discreet and “perfect for a river day”. Joy also pointed out that although the products are “gender neutral” she had male and female color schemes available.
    Gregarious 44-year-old “Stony” Tony Black – sporting a white T-shirt that read “God grew it. I smoke it. That settles” – said the expo was great for selling his cleaning products for glass pipes.

    There was one quiet, lonely-looking stand staffed by a Frito-Lay representative, hoping to convince marijuana store owners to stock their salty snacks.
    But the dozens of marijuana plants in the corner, some reaching 14in tall, were distinct.
    Ribbons for first, second and third prize were awarded for each of the three varieties being judged: indica, which produces the type of body high where munchies manifest – experts say to think of it as “in da couch”; sativa, with a more energetic, uplifting high; and hybrids.
    Ed Rosenthal, also called the guru of ganja, was the contest’s head judge. Carrying a clipboard and wearing a black shirt with green marijuana plants, he evaluated each plant on a range of criteria: color, aroma, shape of leaves and overall health. The plants are judged before they flower, and the type of high they produce isn’t a factor in their overall score.
    Rosenthal’s priority, he said, is “helping cannabis socialize into the mainstream”.
    Oregon voters legalized recreational marijuana in 2014 for adults 21 and older. The state has long allowed medical marijuana.
    Among the hopefuls was Peggy Anderson, a petite silver-haired woman, retired from her job at the Portland Business Alliance to open a pot-growing operation with her son. At 63 years old, Anderson said she’s never felt healthier. She walks three miles a day and can vouch for her own product.
    She believes the industry is poised to be the next cash crop.
    “If you think about Oregon and the agricultural industry, in the Willamette Valley we’re primed to do just as well as the wine industry,” said Anderson, who brought an indica strain called So Mango to display.

    Mary Lou Burton, one of the key organizers of the event, is envisioning a craft cannabis industry, perhaps – in classic Portland style – artisanal pot.
    Burton spent nearly two decades as a wedding planner and still looks the part. She wore a navy and white floral sundress and had the aura of a frenzied multitasker. She spoke quickly, greeted reporters, hobnobbed with exhibitors and gave everyone a run down of the event.
    The growers’ fair was a success, Burton said, despite having to field more phone calls than she’s used to.
    “A lot of our exhibitors are stoners, so they call and say, “When is the fair again?” she said.
    Martinez and his business partner, Danny Grimm, who own Uplifted, a cannabis farm, took home two blue ribbons and are ecstatic about the upcoming state fair.
    “To display my plants in public is a dream come true,” Grimm said.
    It wasn’t that long ago, he said, “we would have picked up a couple of felonies for our plants”.
    Pete and Amy Egli were at the expo to show support for their son, who works in a pot store and is a grower. Amy, a kindergarten teacher, and Pete, a dairy worker, aren’t marijuana users and are still in the midst of trying to understand the industry.
    “We grew up in a world that was very different,” Pete Egli said. “I’m still like, oh my God, it’s going to be at the state fair.”

    The globe and mail did an awesome article on 
    Drug dealers in Canada may soon have to contend with the biggest business competitor they’ve ever faced: the federal government.
    One Montreal dealer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that like any businessman, he is worried about how marijuana legalization will affect the bottom line of his low-key, one-man operation.
    “I just want to be able to pay a few bills,” he says.
    Legalization has come with a promise to curb the black market in almost every jurisdiction where such laws exist. But if what happened in Colorado is any indication, the black market isn’t going anywhere fast. There, weed is still sold by unlicensed producers looking to capitalize on legalization. That can already be seen in Canada, too: Non-medicinal marijuana sellers are proliferating in the grey zone left by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s promise to legalize.
    The Montreal dealer believes having good-quality legal marijuana at a decent price is the biggest threat to his business.
    “It will affect most dealers in the sense that it’s going to take away the business from the casual smoker. Tonight, let’s say you want to go smoke a joint with your [boyfriend]. You’re not going to come see me – you’re going to go around the corner to the closest place and you’re going to have your pick of 50 different kinds. I will lose you as a customer.”
    However, he says, there are conditions in which black-market marijuana will continue to thrive. For example, he anticipates heavy users who buy large quantities of marijuana may still call on him in after-store hours, as will people looking for weed after the legal dispensaries have closed up for the night.
    “For the first three or four months, probably, I’m going to lose a lot of money. People are going to freak out, there are going to be lineups, people are going to love it,” the dealer says. “But then reality sets in. If the store’s not open at 10 p.m., they’re going to come see people like us.”
    Many dealers also tend to sell other drugs in addition to marijuana. In this dealer’s case, he also sells cocaine and speed, among other products. That means that the legalization of one product won’t put him entirely out of business.
    “There’s always going to be a black market. There’s a black market in cigarettes,” says Alan Young, a constitutional lawyer and law professor at Toronto’s York University who has successfully challenged Canada’s medical-marijuana laws.
    Still, there’s no question that one of the main motivations of legalization is to compete with – and ideally dismantle – the domestic black market for marijuana, Mr. Young says.
    To accomplish that, the government would have to promise three things: A competitive price, superior quality and wide availability.
    “The big concern people have is the potential for increase in youth consumption,” says Beau Kilmer, co-director of the RAND Drug Policy Research Center in the United States. “So, the most important thing people will have to pay attention to – in terms of legalization – is what happens to the price.”
    That, Mr. Kilmer says, is because young people and heavy users are the most cost-sensitive: “If the price is too high, you’re still going to have black markets.”
    The government has yet to determine the legal method for selling marijuana: a liquor store-type model, a dispensary model or an expansion of the current system of legal medical producers who ship by mail.
    However, a heavily regulated recreational-marijuana market leaves lots of room for an illegal undercurrent, because there will always be people who want to avoid taxation or having a record of their consumption, who don’t trust the government, and who buy other drugs besides marijuana. Strict regulations may also drive the price up if licensed producers’ overhead costs grow, in which case users may still opt for street dealers’ pot.
    Meanwhile, the hurdles Mr. Trudeau and his cabinet are currently facing on this dossier mean legalization is likely several years off. “I’m very skeptical, myself,” says Andrew Hathaway, a drug-policy researcher and associate professor in the University of Guelph’s criminal justice and public policy program. “I assume there’s going to be some sort of consultation process, which is always a good stall tactic on the part of governments.”

    Will marijuana legalization push the pusher out of business?

    “There’s always going to be a black market. There’s a black market in cigarettes,” says Alan Young, a constitutional lawyer and law professor at Toronto’s York University who has successfully challenged Canada’s medical-marijuana laws.
    Still, there’s no question that one of the main motivations of legalization is to compete with – and ideally dismantle – the domestic black market for marijuana, Mr. Young says.
    To accomplish that, the government would have to promise three things: A competitive price, superior quality and wide availability.
    “The big concern people have is the potential for increase in youth consumption,” says Beau Kilmer, co-director of the RAND Drug Policy Research Center in the United States. “So, the most important thing people will have to pay attention to – in terms of legalization – is what happens to the price.”
    That, Mr. Kilmer says, is because young people and heavy users are the most cost-sensitive: “If the price is too high, you’re still going to have black markets.”
    The government has yet to determine the legal method for selling marijuana: a liquor store-type model, a dispensary model or an expansion of the current system of legal medical producers who ship by mail.
    However, a heavily regulated recreational-marijuana market leaves lots of room for an illegal undercurrent, because there will always be people who want to avoid taxation or having a record of their consumption, who don’t trust the government, and who buy other drugs besides marijuana. Strict regulations may also drive the price up if licensed producers’ overhead costs grow, in which case users may still opt for street dealers’ pot.
    Meanwhile, the hurdles Mr. Trudeau and his cabinet are currently facing on this dossier mean legalization is likely several years off. “I’m very skeptical, myself,” says Andrew Hathaway, a drug-policy researcher and associate professor in the University of Guelph’s criminal justice and public policy program. “I assume there’s going to be some sort of consultation process, which is always a good stall tactic on the part of governments.”

    Awhile ago we asked for some of you to submit your best stories about getting high. We all have has that moment where we've gotten so stoned that something amazing happens. Here are a collection of stories while stoned.




    Ryan - Vancouver, BC
    Going to a sandwich restaurant and when they asked for my friends name (for the order), He promptly stared into their eyes with the most serious face and answered "Philly cheese steak".


    Mark S - Phoenix, AZ
    My frient and I went to the corner store near his house to buy something to drink. We got up to the counter and I began to get in a very friendly conversation with the Indian clerk ( who I have never met). I was saying things like "I got you bro" and "it's all good in the hood" etc. I finished paying and as we were walking out the man yelled "wait". we turn around he he said "you forgot your drinks". I looked him dead in the eyes with a straight face and said "no it's cool keep the change" and walked out with no drinks. It was not until the next day that we realized that we payed for the drinks but never got them.


    Sarah N - New York, NY
    I wanted to wash my hands, but there was no soap by the sink, so I washed my hands with the toothpaste in the cabinet. Didn't think twice about it.


    Garret - Boca Raton, FL
    My friend and I wanted to see how many times we could HIGH-five while biking, we got to 156 before we fell. We got up and instantly celebrated due to our performance. We soon realized that we were in the same spot on the street where we had started to bike. If you haven't caught on, we sat on our bikes, not moving, high-fiving eachother 156 times, and then fell over... Just sitting there. 'twas a great time.



    Joseph - Surrey, BC
    I have pretty bad vision and I didnt have my glasses on. I had just smoked a couple bowls, and I was in my kitchen. I was looking out the window and I saw my dog in the backyard so I went to go let him in. I was looking out the screen door, whistling and calling him but he didnt move. I put on my shoes and as I started to walk closer, I realized it wasn't my dog. It was a soccer ball.


    Marcus - Toronto, ON
    The first time I took an edible was on an airplane. My friENT from Colorado gave me a medical, indica cheeba-chew and then let me watch Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on his laptop...Ended up thinking I had melted into my seat like that bitch from the anti-pot commercial and couldn't physically answer any question from a flight attendant. Still the best flight of my life :)

    I think music should be listened to in albums instead of songs. It's like reading a whole book instead of just chapters and its how the musician intended it to be listened to. I am therefore going to post my top 10 albums to listen to while smoking.
    10.One Nation Under a Groove-Funkadelic This album is psychedelic, funky, and rocking all at the same time. Although it was in close contention with a couple other albums for making this list it stands out because of tracks like "Cholly", "Grooveallegiance", and the title track.
    9.Black Sunday-Cypress Hill This is a classic stoner album and I love it. It starts with "I Want to Get High" and the intensity in lyrics and great beats don't stop until the end.
    8.The Doors-The Doors The Door's first album is IMO their best. Innovative synth lines that will take you for a ride, great guitar and Jim Morrison's lyrics make this album a stoner's dream from start to finish. Highlights are "Light my Fire" "Soul Kitchen" and "Break on through"
    7.Classics-Ratatat When I first heard this album I was blown away. There are no lyrics but yet this album is lush with electric spacey guitar grooves. There are groovy jams like "Kennedy", more chill ones like "Tacobel cannon" and jams like "Loud Pipes". Everything you could want in a great album.
    6.Taking up Your Precious Time-Pretty Lights I would say that this is PL's most chill album but also my favorite to smoke to. From start to finish you can get lost in every song. "Finally Moving" "Summer's Thirst" and "Samso" really give a good feel for the ambient jams on this album.
    5.A Place Behind the Moon-Big Gigantic If you couldn't tell yet I like ambient/groovy albums and this one is one of the best. Big G does a great job of mixing sax with synth and every song on this album is awesome. My favorites are "Lucid Dreams" and "High and Rising"
    4.Man on The Moon-Kid Cudi I've seen ents talk about this album a 1000 times and it should be talked about for a reason. I remember when this first came out, I hadn't really heard anything like it. Cudi does an amazing job of mixing rap with electronic beats (with artists like Ratatat) and that is where this album shines.
    3.Dark Side of the Moon-Pink Floyd Another classic, but I couldn't pass it up. As far as I'm concerned this might be one of the greatest complete albums of all time. Every song flows into the next one, and the best part of the album is the flow. It is a shame not to listen to this album in order, straight through. The songs are so deep I can't even go into a track by track review.
    2.) Are You Experienced-Jimi Hendrix Experience This album really is an experience. Sure there are classics like "Purple Haze" or "Hey Joe" but those aren't what make this album great to listen to while high. Listen to "Third Stone from the Sun" the title track, or "I Don't Live Today" to see the true genius of Hendrix. Again theres not a song on this album that I would skip...light up a bowl and go on a psychedelic journey back in time.
    ]1.40 Oz to Freedom-Sublime First I will admit that this is not the best album on this list as far as musicality and technique are concerned, but this is a list of best albums to smoke to and Sublime takes the cake. When listening to this album you feel the sunny vibes of the beach, you want to dance in your chair. Songs like "Badfish" "Let's Go Get Stoned" and "Don't Push" just can't be beat, and honestly from the first track to the last there is not one song that I don't love. So smoke two joints, sit back, and soak in the warmth of the LBC
    PS. Just want to throw in some honorable mentions because there are just so many good albums and people are reminding me of some awesome albums. In no order: Gorillaz-Gorillaz, Midnight Marauders-ATCQ, Shrines-Purity Ring, Closer to the Sun-Slightly Stoopid Metaphorical Music-Nujabes The Sunlandic Twins-Of Montreal Psychic Chasms-Neon Indian
    Just want to say that its super hard to pick only 10 albums and that this is in no way an objective list of "the best" just my personal favorite's while blazing. I like every type of music and I know some very popular artists aren't on this list that I love (beatles, kendrick, sleep, led zep, radiohead etc.) Mad love to all those artists as well they just didn't make the list for one reason or another. Thinking about it again I probably should've done a top 10 for every genre but hey I was high :p
