New State Law Might Make It Tougher to Spot Pot Shops
A new Washington State law that went into effect on Sunday will make it a bit more difficult to spot Seattle’s numerous pot shops and a lot more boring for those who have enjoyed the city’s creative cannabis ads and billboards.
There will be no more cuddly mascots or meowing kitties.
“No sandwich boards, no flags, no sign spinners—the things people are putting value judgments on that they find unappealing or gross,” said Oscar Velasco-Schmitz, co-owner of Dockside Cannabis.
Signs have to indicate that cannabis is only for adults over 21 and will not be allowed to show pictures of pot plants, products or use movie or cartoon characters.
The first cannabis billboards went up in Seattle in summer 2014, and they were clever.

Kimbo Kush (Indica)
A strain developed by Exotic Genetix, it's a 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid of Platinum Blackberry Kush and Starfighter (itself a phenotype of Tahoe Alien OG). Kimbo Kush is an excellent overall pain reliever and worked well for spasms and stress. Everything about its looks and tastes screams “indica” what with its very dark green hues and berry flavors, but there's just enough sativa in its blood to keep it from inducing sleepy-headedness. Use this one on weekends and evenings and you should get everything you need in a medicine.

Sour Grapes (Hybrid)
A hybrid of Grape Ape and the legendary Sour Diesel, this strain is gaining more and more popularity. The buds are medium-sized, light-green and astonishingly coated with sticky trichromes. The aroma from these near-perfect nugs is fragrantly similar to white wine, citrus and fruit, with undertones of sour dank. The buds are somewhat fluffy and noticeably soft.
Pot Shop Gave Out Free Weed to Help Clean Up Maine Town
Who doesn’t love a town cleanup… especially when the local pot shop is handing out free weed in exchange for filling a few trash bags?
Dennis Meehan and his wife Tracy, both medical marijuana caregivers and owners of the Summit Medical Marijuana Shop in Gardiner, Maine, made the offer this past weekend, and the response was awesome.
“The night before, I was up all night putting together the bags. We had people, not just from Gardiner, but from all over the state,” Meehan said in a phone interview with HIGH TIMES. “It was incredible.”
Meehan had announced the cleanup on the company’s Facebook page, in which he promised up to two grams of free weed for filling trash bags with garbage collected around the city.
