Why Can’t We Learn from Lessons in the Recent Past?

Yesterday, I came across a story by Livia Gershon titled “Legalizing Marijuana: Lessons from the Post-prohibition Era“. This story got me thinking; We’re in an era of legalization or rather the re-legalization of cannabis throughout the U.S. and indeed the world. The patently racist reasons for making cannabis illegal in the first place were ill-grounded, […]


Study Reveals Cannabis Has Increased In Popularity Among Older Adults

[Canniseur: This is kind of a ‘duh’ story, but an important one. Of course, older adults who grew up during the 60s, 70s, and 80s are going to try cannabis!!! Even if they didn’t consume during their youth, the kids are gone and there’s no more reason not to try what everyone else is doing. […]


Why I Feel Guilty Shopping at Weed Dispensaries

[Canniseur: Although we’re publishing more and more articles that are our own, this one just needs to be told. It’s important and needs to get some extra airtime, so to speak. Systemic racism is so pervasive in the U.S. that most of us who see ourselves as not racist, miss, and probably practice these kinds […]


Video: Inside a High-End Cannabis Dispensary

If you’re in a state that doesn’t have legal cannabis, I feel for you. It’ll come eventually. In the meantime, feast your eyes on this store. Cannabis shops are just like any other retail operation.

How To Select The Right Cannabis Strain

The right strain. I wonder what that means actually. Since cannabis has become legal, there are only 4 or 5 strains that are the ‘right’ strain for me. In no particular order, there’s Blue Dream, Princess Nikita, Red Headed Stranger, Golden Goat, and Acapulco Gold, which was supposed to be a landrace strain, but whatever […]


Willie Nelson and Chip Carter – Stoned on the White House Roof

Jimmy Carter was a proponent of decriminalized cannabis and actually tried to get congress to consider decrim in the 1970s!!! Yes, the 1970s. Amazing. And Willie Nelson was both a friend. In this revelation, President Carter admitted that his son, Chip was the one on the roof when Willie famously (as admitted in his first […]


Friday Book Club: The CBD Skincare Solution

22.6% of U.S. Adults Say They’ve Used Marijuana Within the Last Year

[Canniseur: I’m willing to bet that because of the lingering stigma of cannabis consumption, the actual percentage of adults who consume cannabis is quite a bit higher. So what is the U.S. waiting for? Legal cannabis does not increase crime, bring underage teens into the realm of consumption or do any of the negatives the […]


Women Who Use Marijuana More Often Have Better Sex, Study Says

[Canniseur: Almost seems like a; “Duh, really?” kind of story. But it’s not and real scientific evidence has been lacking.

Cannabis Consumers Shopping For Bargains During Pandemic

[Canniseur: I never thought about price and getting people out of the illicit market. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not. But price is always a determining factor. Does COVID-19 have anything to do with it? I don’t know. Just like wine, most people want the box-of-wine for $10. There will always a small minority who […]
