Puff, puff, don’t pass: How to smoke weed socially — and safely — in the COVID-19 era

Sitting by the pool at a boutique hotel in Palm Springs on a one-night, mid-August getaway, I struck up a conversation with a guy named Gary. I didn’t know anything about my fellow sun-worshipper except where he was from (Huntington Beach), that he’d grown up in the 1970s (he had seen Jimi Hendrix and the Doors perform live) and that he was down to chat about cannabis. I, just a few days out from touring cannabis label Ball Family Farms’ Los Angeles grow (for a profile of its founder and chief executive, Chris Ball), was more than willing to oblige.

Marijuana may have been legalized in New York state earlier this year, but Johnson City residents may soon be restricted in where it’s legal to light up. 

The village is looking to pass an amendment to local law that would add cannabis to the list of substances restricted from spaces like public parks and other village-owned property. Tobacco smoking and vaping are already banned from those public spaces.

5 Household Items Stoners Can’t Live Without

What comes to mind when you think about the essential items stoners regularly rely on? Probably rolling papers or blunt wraps, or elaborate bongs and pipes.

While it’s not necessarily false to say that stoners depend on those items, there are more everyday household goods that ease the lives of stoners than you probably think. There are several common household items that even most stoners never thought could come in handy. Here are a few of them.

Duo's higher calling: Destigmatizing marijuana

New York State's cannabis market is on the way, but there are still a lot of questions about how it will work. As that debate plays out in Albany, a pair of Central New York entrepreneurs are on a mission to break down stereotypes surrounding the drug and ease residents into the idea of having "canna-business" in their neighborhoods.

They say that, while smoking marijuana has become legal in the state of New York, that’s only a fraction of the battle.

 

“Since March, we've been kind of sitting down and talking about some ideas and we wanted to do something new,” said Byron Cage.

Should Public Cannabis Consumption Be Allowed?

In New York City, when they allowed public smoking of marijuana, arrests declined significantly. Sounds like a no brainer — if it’s legal to smoke weed in public, cops can’t arrest you. Except, in some places there are grey areas and cops like to exploit these grey areas to increase arrest records and feel like they are “enforcing the LAW!”

It turns out that all you have to do for cops not to do something is to make it legal. The police is blind to the moral consequences of law — they simply enforce it. You know, like Superior Orders!

However, the issue of public cannabis consumption isn’t limited to New York City; it’s a topic that will most definitely come up in every future legalization debate from now until cannabis is completely integrated into society.
