Cannabis and Comedy Converge at The Gateway Show

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, March, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

The Gateway Show is a comedy show based in Seattle and began a few years ago.  I had not heard about this comedy show until recently, and got to attend my first (of what I hope will be many) a few months ago and laughed so hard I cried!  This show is a fairly typical comedy show with a twist as the comedians perform after cannabis consumption.

The concept is simple: the comedians come in and each perform a set of comedy.  Then, they take an intermission and go off site and get dabbed out of their brains.  Rip City Remedies helps with the product and Hermetic Botanicals helps with the edibles and their other products.  After their sesh, the comedians return to the venue (the Funhouse Lounge is who hosts these shows in Portland) and each do a second set of comedy while under the influence.

Only Marijuana Legalization Fulfills the Promise of Medical Cannabis and Industrial Hemp

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, March, 27th 2017 by THCFinder

I’m an adult who likes to smoke marijuana for fun. There is nothing shameful about that.

But there are some people in America who do think smoking marijuana to get high is somehow an unseemly act.

What’s worse is that some of them are supposedly on our side.

Some of the supporters of medical cannabis, for instance, are fond of saying that they are “Patients, Not Criminals” or “Patients, Not Potheads.” They’ll explain how what they’re fighting for are sick and disabled people’s access to medical cannabis, which they’ll assure the listener “isn’t about some stoners just trying to get high.” Those fighting for access to cannabidiol make sure to stress that it’s “not going to get anybody high.”

Oh, no, God forbid somebody uses marijuana to get high!

Why Is Alcohol Legal But Not Marijuana?

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, March, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

It’s no secret that history repeats itself, it’s just not always obvious while it’s actually happening. Case in point: America’s seemingly endless war on marijuana can trace its roots directly to the prohibition era, which was a spectacular disaster in every way.  This is a topic that TWB has posted about before, and also one that is certainly tied to why we, as an industry, call this plant cannabis and not marijuana.

But, do you ever wonder why alcohol (one of the most lethal, destructive, and addictive substances in the world) is perfectly legal and marijuana isn’t? For answers, it’s helpful to look back on America’s failed experiment with alcohol prohibition (spoiler alert: prohibition didn’t stop people from drinking!).

Cannabis Lifestyle Brand Jane West- What it Takes to be a Woman in Weed

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, March, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

Jane West is the CEO of the cannabis lifestyle brand Jane West, where she designs and develops accessories and home goods that invite mainstream consumers to experience the benefits of cannabis and take part in the legal lifestyle.

West has a prominent place in the establishing of the legal, business-minded cannabis industry. Prior to launching her consumption-friendly cannabis events company Edible Events in 2014, Jane was a working mother rising through the management ranks as a corporate event planner. After her employer spotted her vaping on CNBC, she was quickly fired.

West took this opportunity to fully immerse and invest herself in the cannabis industry full time. She founded Women Grow, the cannabis industry’s largest professional networking organization, and is now the CEO of her eponymous cannabis lifestyle brand Jane West.

Pittsburgh Weeders? NFL Hall of Famer Wants In On Marijuana Market

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, March, 21st 2017 by THCFinder

Pennsylvania voters didn’t vote for Donald Trump because they were stupid or because they were misogynist; Trump made the residents of the onetime coal-and-steel capital of America a raft of promises they were genetically predisposed from refusing. 

Coal would come back, Trump said, and after that—steel would come back! Big league!

He may as well have told Pittsburgh Steelers fans that Terry Bradshaw, Chuck Noll and a younger and less-insane James Harrison were on their way to (long-demolished) Three Rivers Stadium. 

Forever-Republicans, like a coal company CEO, don’t believe Trump can keep his coal promise—not with cheap and abundant natural gas gleaned through such happily dangerous methods like fracking—and it would require converting every Walmart in the country into a steel mill, while retaining the retailers’ notorious practices of employing non-union, part-time labor, for the U.S. to match China’s output of cheap steel.
