Snoop Dogg Tours World’s Largest Marijuana Greenhouse
Rocking his own Leafs by Snoop lab coat, a Tweed hat and his usual bling, the world’s most renowned cannabis connoisseur paid a visit to the world’s largest medical marijuana greenhouse.
Snoop wanted to check out the buds growing at this 350,000-square-foot greenhouse in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada.
“Snoop did a tour to inspect the facility and get a look at the next batches of Leafs By Snoop products that we’re growing out at Tweed Farms,” Tweed director of communications Jordan Sinclair told the website Niagara this Week.
He toured the greenhouse and facility with Tweed officials, including the company’s master grower Kevin Furet.
Study Shows Stoners at University are Getting Good Grades
With pot smoking at a 36-year high among college students, it’s good to know these young academics can be stoned and study at the same time.
In their Cannabis in College study, Inhale Labs confirmed that students who attend four-year accredited colleges or universities and smoke weed on a daily or near-daily basis (defined as over 20 times/month) are getting good grades—and there are a lot of them.
This growing demographic of college stoners has reached 10 percent, nearly doubling in the past two years. In 2014, that figure was 5.9 percent, according to University of Michigan’s Monitoring for the Future survey.
This Former Pot Smuggler Is Outlaw Folk’s Newest Star
Last week, Todd Snider’s mentoree, Rorey Carroll, joined him at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. The tour and collaboration have been long and strong, and Todd’s pride in his discovery shines through.
If only Rorey had as much faith.
“Welcome to an awkward 35 minutes with Rorey Carroll,” she began, moving on to confess to having snorted Adderall and taken “a few” shots of tequila before coming out to perform. She did look nervous and a little drunk as she told us about her last gig in NYC, playing in the subway tunnels for change. The change was clearly drastic on her psyche and in the cozy Gramercy Theatre, but she’d earned it, whether or not she owned it.

How the Green Revolution Will Be Televised
There are traditional ways to find seed money for your cannabis enterprise, and then there’s the 21st-century way: by appearing on a reality-TV show.
Taking a cue from ABC’s successful Shark Tank, filmmaker Wendy Robbins and Broadway producer Karen Paull have created The Marijuana Show, an online series in which contestants pitch their companies and products to a panel of investors.
“Use a booming voice,” Robbins instructed the hopefuls at a recent New York casting call. “If you want $1.5 million, I gotta remember you.”
Pot and the NFL
No sport produces the kind of physical and psychological trauma that professional football does. That’s why former players are calling on the National Football League to recognize the benefits of cannabis.
Cannabis and the NFL are joined at the hip. Estimates suggest that more than half of the league’s players use it. That’s roughly 1,000 of the best head-smashers in the world. However, half of my high-school football team didn’t smoke weed; maybe only 20 percent did. In college, it got a little higher – probably 40 percent. But in the NFL, it’s over 50 percent. So what accounts for the increase?
