CandySkunk: 10 Baggie Alternatives

November 19th, 2008 by Alex


Our boy over at CandySkunk dropped a solid post on storage options for medical buds.

If you’re still using Ziploc or sandwich baggies, get with the damn times and treat your herbature with some respect. Exposure to air has multiple negative affects, including loss of potency and added harshness when smoking.

CandySkunk’s article covers both budget (i.e. – free) and brand name options for all grades of smoker. Everything from mason jars to stash cans are covered.

So go check the post and see what options work for you.

NORML Extends Deadlines for $10,000 Ad Contest

November 14th, 2008 by Perry

Stoners do like to procratinate.

So it shouldn’t be any surprise NORML has extended the submission deadline for flash animation and video entries for their ad contest until January 15, 2009. Contest rules and submission guidelines are available here.

Washington, DC: Want to express your outrage at America’s draconian marijuana policies – and win thousands in cash too?

What a great idea, counter the propaganda, with propaganda, and try to win $10,000. Not a bad idea. To give you an idea of what to submit, check out a clip from last year’s winner.

Allow Your Voice to Be Heard

November 13th, 2008 by Perry

Barack Obama wants to hear what you have to say.

As his transitional team prepares for the next four years in office, he has set up a website to hear your thoughts on what he’s doing or what he should be doing when sworn in.

It’s a simple, easy way you can become involved in the political scene. By sending an e-mail to www.change.gov, you’re in direct contact with president-elect, or at least one of his staffers, so send along your thoughts or causes and allow your voice to be heard.

Online Marijuana Assessment

November 12th, 2008 by Perry

Now in use at over 195 universities, Wesleyan recently added an online marijuana assessment to its health center’s online services.

The assessment takes into account usage, habits and lifestyle and compares them with national and global averages and creates a somewhat personalized program. Developed by San Diego State University, the program is aimed at giving information to students about their drug habits.

Most schools also have a similar test for alcohol, but it seems like a pretty ineffective way to council or answer real questions you might have about drug usage.

Second Rate Snacks

November 5th, 2008 by Alex


Here’s a seriously cool blog we found called Second Rate Snacks.

The idea is simple: take a brand name food item and compare it against a similar “no name” item.

A couple of their more recent battles are:

  • Mountain Dew vs. Mello Yello
  • Instant Lunch vs. Cup Noodles
  • Gold n’ Cremes vs. Twinkies
  • Hydrox vs. Oreo

This is awesome. Everyone knows grocery prices are going through the roof, and if Hydrox tastes better than Oreos, and are cheaper to boot, fuck it, I’m picking myself up a pack.

Now where did I put the milk…

Welcome to the United States of Anthony

October 29th, 2008 by Perry

The United States of Marc Anthony?

“Obsessed” with marijuana re-education? So is the United States of Anthony.

No idea what that is?

The United States of Anthony is a blog of my own wisdom – thoughts, theories, concepts, and ideas – on whatever I feel like talking about on any given day.

Current Obsession: Marijuana (Re)Education

Despite the cheesy intro, the US of A is a pretty cool blog with some interesting stats, tips and viewpoints.

One example is Anthony’s response to drug czar John Walters claim on C-SPAN that finding people in jail for “first-time nonviolent possession of marijuana… is like finding a unicorn… because it doesn’t exist.”

Time to bust out the unicorn stats:

  • 2005 – 786,545 unicorns
  • 2006 – 829,625 unicorns
  • 2007 – 872,721 unicorns
  • 2008 – 680,014 unicorns

He also has more practical info, like tips for an essential marijuana smoking kit and some accessory suggestions, like:

A kit can’t be a kit if all of the pieces don’t have a home!

Too true. In my opinion, the case is all-important. I like something small, light and portable. Also, it has to be inconspicuous – a la the box from the last time I had to replace my dropped cell phone.

Anthony favors a small, hard plastic case with a lock. A solid approach if you’re surrounded by shady characters.

Keep up the good work man!

Marijuana MySpace Themes = Vomitacious

October 22nd, 2008 by Alex


Stoner web design isn’t exactly the peak of visual ingenuity on the internet. Take a look at most websites dedicated to weed and you’ll see rotating pot leafs, green on black themes, unreadable text and nasty page layouts.

When we designed this site, there was a very specific goal of resembling none of that bullshit. Unfortunately for the kids out there, MySpace themes don’t seem to be catching up.

While doing a halloween-themed Google image search, the eye-gouging monstrosity above got dumped onto my screen. I followed the image and got presented with the worst MySpace themes on the planet.

The site is called ‘CoolChaser’ and the only thing people with those themes should chase is a smack to the face. I can’t imagine voluntarily making a MySpace page look like this, but if anyone has seen one, post a link in the comments.

If this doesn’t make you jump from MySpace to Facebook, nothing will.

Two more screencaps after the jump, if you can’t stomach going to CoolChaser and looking yourself (which I can’t blame you for.)

Hallelujah! Hallelujah, I’m Saved!

October 8th, 2008 by Perry

If a story about the Free Marijuana Church of Honolulu doesn’t appeal to you, you might be on the wrong website.

Religion founder Bernard von NotHaus, High Priest of Honolulu, professes:

The time has now come for me to answer Timothy Leary’s nagging question, ‘When will you accept that you are a messenger of God?’

This was the basis for the religion. Eh, it works for me. I didn’t need much convincing after the Free Marijuana part.
