Former NFL Player: Cannabis Was To Me, What Spinach Was To Popeye
Ricky Williams, a former NFL (National Football League) player who won aHeisman Trophy in college and was selected as the first pick in the NFL draft, recently compared his cannabis use to Popeye’s use of spinach, implying that it significantly improved his performance, according to USA Today.
The comment came during an interview with Campus Insiders. He was asked if his cannabis use – which led to multiple suspensions during his career in the NFL – slowed him down at all, and if it was an Achilles heel for him.
“I don’t agree that it was an Achilles heel, I kind of think it was more like spinach for Popeye,” he replied.
Williams also made news last month, when a former Miami Dolphins teammate told the press that Williams consumed cannabis before games on multiple occasions.
Williams joined an elite list of NFL running Backs in 2003 when he become one of only several players in the league’s history to rush for over 200 yards in a game.
Bongs vs Vaporizers
For the advanced smokers, bongs and vaporizers are preferred. Both apparatuses smoke hard and will get you higher than the clouds. I don't recommend either for the novice smokers. For those who love to get baked, however, it's always a debate between the vape and the bong.
Most smokers are partial to the glass bongs. They're beautiful to look at and awesome to smoke. The water helps to cool the smoke before it enters your lungs. Also, hits from the bong (ha!) are huge clouds that not only get you super stoned, but look good in those Instagram pictures! ;) Smoking a bong with friends is also a really great way to relax, unwind, and reconnect.
Vaporizers are a GREAT way to smoke. Not only do they hit hard, they get you super baked, AND you can reuse the weed after you've vaporized it. Vaporized weed is great to use in food. While you need more of it to create a high, it's good to at least try to recycle. Vaporizers are portable, easy to clean, and now, they even come in the shape of e-cigs. No one will know if it's weed or tobacco that you're puffing on.
While bongs are great, vaporizers might take the cake on this one. Being able to reuse weed is awesome, especially if you don't have a lot of money to spend on bud. It's a good idea to keep a bag or a jar of vaped weed around, just in case you feel like making some bud brownies in the future. However, there's nothing wrong with having both a bong and a vaporizer in your collection. Most stoners do have both and use them both on the regular. With that said, I think I'm about to pack the vaporizer!

Weed In The Music Industry
Normal people get arrested for smoking weed but celebrities - now more than ever - have begun to adopt marijuana in to their lyrics and music videos. From A$AP Rocky to Xzibit, music is a key part in the spread of marijuana knowledge. Even if the weed is just in the form of a blunt in a rappers hand, it's showing that "hey, we're successful and important and we smoke weed".
Recently, Justin Bieber has been caught with pot. While most people don't like Bieber, he's been on a rampage with Mary Jane, with weed on his tour bus at the Canadian border and smoke pouring out of his car windows when he rolls up to his private jet. A child star beginning to experiment with pot (and openly) could be a seriously useful weapon for the cause in the future. While singing "Baby, baby, baby" will get a water bottle thrown at his head, Bieber doesn't have to worry about us stoners getting mad when he show up on the web smoking a blunt.
Music is a huge way for people to understand the wonders of marijuana. The catchy beats make the lyrics stick in a person's mind and that's the goal. Getting people to talk about marijuana is just another way to educate people. By singing positive messages about weed, musicians can help to promote that it's a good thing. Plus, music videos are always cool when there's someone famous smoking a blunt, sitting on a dope muscle car, as seems to be commonplace in the video industry these days.
As more musicians come forth with their favoritism of the ganja, we can be assured that their message will reach huge audiences. While Cypress Hill has been rapping about smoking for years, it's the newer generations that need to be listening to some stoner beats. Not all of the younger kids will want to listen to Snoop and Bob Marley. Music changes with the generations and if marijuana is going to continue to permeate the industry, the songs are going to have to mold with the changes of society. Instead of heavy beats and rap music, marijuana may be mentioned in the poppy, upbeat songs of Miley Cyrus and the like.
