Ancient Russian Warrior Race Pre-Funked Battles with Cannabis Packed in Gold Bongs

Indiana Jones isn’t the only archeologist who digs up ancient artifacts powerful enough to melt your face off, although this latest find is more of a figurative face melt than a literal one. A team of archeologists in the Caucasus Mountains of southern Russia recently unearthed two bongs made of pure gold that date back over 2,400 years. The bongs were reportedly used by tribal chiefs to smoke both cannabis and opium. These ceremonial water pipes were believed to be used by the Scythians, a nomadic warrior race that ruled large portions of Europe and Asia from 800 B.C. – 300 A.D….

Paul McCartney Replacing Cannabis with Alcohol to “Set an Example” for His Grandkids

Sir Paul McCartney recently told The Daily Mirror that he quit using cannabis to “set an example” for his eight grandchildren and will now instead imbibe a glass of wine or a “nice margarita.” The former Beatle and iconic music legend was reportedly introduced to cannabis by Bob Dylan in 1964, and he’s had a long-standing relationship with the plant since (including an arrest in 1980 for hauling a pound of cannabis through Japanese customs).  Said McCartney: “I don’t do that any more. Why? The truth is I don’t really want to set an example to my kids and grandkids. It’s now…

Weekend Weirdness: What Does Banning Farts Have to Do with Cannabis?

A concerned citizen wants Pendleton, Oregon to add smelly farts to the city’s nuisance code. If you think I’m high from too much Sour Diesel and are wondering what the hell flatulence has to do with cannabis, bear with me, it gets good (and, of course, weird).  In the wake of Oregon passing a recreational cannabis act last November, the city of Pendleton recently updated its nuisance ordinances to include a fine of up to $500 for allowing cannabis odors to waft from your property to someone else’s. While cannabis connoisseurs like yourself probably enjoy Toucan Sam-ming your way along an invisible yet pungent cannabis path, some…

Surveyed NBA Players Think League Should Allow Medical Marijuana

I remember hearing an interview with Tommy Chong, during which he talked about how his NBA player friends from throughout the years all consumed marijuana. He specifically named Kareem Abdul Jabbar and said that Kareem told him that at least 3 out of 4 NBA players consume marijuana. There’s obviously no way to know if that’s completely accurate, but I could see it being true. Kareem explained that with the aches and pains that every professional athlete deals with, marijuana is a great for of medicine to help alleviate those aches and pains. TMZ recently surveyed 10 NBA players to…

What Are Cannabis Topicals and How Do They Work?

New methods of cannabis consumption are bringing us further away from the notion that marijuana belongs solely in a bong or joint – or that it has to get you high, for that matter. Cannabis-infused topicals are an example of how new modes of consumption are revolutionizing perceptions of marijuana as their accessibility, safety, and efficacy invite even the most unlikely patrons into the world of medical cannabis. What Are Topicals? Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Because they’re non-psychoactive, topicals are often chosen by…

Weekend Weirdness: Would You Worship the Church of Cannabis?

Recently, Indiana passed Senate Bill 101, dubbed the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act.” The bill was designed to prohibit the government from “substantially burdening a person’s exercise of religion, even if the burden results form a rule of general applicability” unless the government can refute the burden. You can unglaze your eyes now — in layman’s terms, this bill is supposed to protect Indiana residents’ religious beliefs. Unfortunately, this law also makes it “justifiable” for Indiana business owners to discriminate against certain groups such as gay individuals by refusing them service because their lifestyle violates the business owners’ religious beliefs. The backlash against the state of…
