In Pick Of The Week, I highlight a nifty fashion/home/beauty item that I’ve discovered in my travels. More
Today is a victory for stoners everywhere. Thanks to two measures I didn’t even know were on the ballot (probably because I was stoned), recreational marijuana is now legal in the great states of Washington and Colorado. Hooray! And contrary to popular belief (let’s pretend people still believe this), not everyone who smokes weed is a smelly, bloodshot, dreadlocked hippie person. Just take it from these glamorous stoner ladies of Hollywood and beyond. More
One summer home from college I went on a trip through Arizona with my parents. It was the first family trip since I had moved away from home, the first trip where we were all adults and the first time I smoked weed with my parents. It was eye opening, and not only in the way being high usually is. More
Well, does it? If not, perhaps this 1971 movie about marijuana’s sexual secrets will change your mind. More
Some people say that even if a relationship ends, you’ve still gained something from it: a valuable lesson. We say, yes, we have gained something from it: a winter wardrobe. More
Full disclosure: I’m not a pot smoker. Not even little bit. Pot renders me completely paranoid and debilitatingly self-conscious, and then I’m that weirdo sitting in the corner curled up against the wall like some 17-year-old in a Cobrasnake photoshoot, glaring mistrustfully at everyone in the room and wondering why they all hate me so much.

I know you guys have heard about this video, but I don’t know if you’ve seen it. Well, here it is — Miley Cyrus hitting the bong. Her reps went on to say that she was smoking salvia, not weed, and her dad has gone on the record as sad.
But I’m here to tell you that what we can learn from this video is not a lesson about drugs, but about how to not be a complete asshole, courtesy of the person holding the camera. More
Um, I meant “medical marijuana” commercial.
Growing up in a sheltered lefty enclave in northern California, I developed a few unusual ideas about life and the universe: 1) if you’re going to jack some of your parents’ weed, ask politely, 2) shopping at farmers’ markets is akin to a great act of humanity and when you walk into Whole Foods, you’re participating in the preservation of the planet and also ending wars and nursing baby animals or some shit and, in all seriousness, 3) being gay is a-okay. It wasn’t until I was shipped off to the cold cruel world of private liberal arts education that I realized not everybody was as comfortable with non-hetero love.
I guess I never thought about sexuality in terms of gay or straight. I kind of always just thought you like who you like and that’s how it goes. I recognize now that this could be perceived as extremely naïve: outside of far left bastions like my home town, there often exist rigid definitions of sexual identity: gay, straight, bi, queer, trans, godless heathen, craven whore, etc. More
William Breathes is living the high life. He doesn’t work a nine to five, sit in a cubical, nor wear a suit to work. Breathes is a pot critic. His job involves rolling blunts, taking bong hits, and writing about it. … More
