CBC Comedy sketch hilariously mocks government weed dispensaries

This short sketch from CBC Comedy perfectly highlights the absurdity of the government running a cannabis retail monopoly with no experience and minimal knowledge of the product they’re supposed to be selling, especially when dispensaries have been doing it for years! As the tagline states, “The government is preparing to open commercial dispensaries, but the […]

Should cannabis be treated like alcohol? Yes and no

To say that cannabis should be treated like alcohol is something that many people in the cannabis industry would agree with, but at the same time, it’s not exactly an apt comparison. Last week, the United Nations’ drug committee found that cannabis was a “relatively safe drug”, and when considering all of the studies that […]

Have We Lost Legalization?

What doesn’t the Alberta government get about legalization?  To be part of their legal distribution industry, “an applicant that is or was a participant in the unlawful cannabis trade, including illegal retail or medical sales… will not be eligible for a retail cannabis licence.” That’s not legalization. Similar nonsense comes from the mouth of Justin […]

Crystals and Cannabis Overlap In More Ways Than You’d Think

By day, the Ace of Diamonds quartz crystal mine’s piles of “tailings,” the rocks dug out and left over from larger crystal excavations, sparkle in the sun. Slivers of what almost look like glass buried in the dried mud shimmer across the property. A welcome breeze always seems to cool a sweaty brow at the exact right moment. People of all ages clamber up and down the dusty piles of rubble, looking for errant shiny gems, or smash chunks of rock out of the ledge with sledgehammers in search of crystals.

By night, smoke from campfires gives the area the smell of burned wood and roasted hot dogs. Patrons sporting old Megadeth and G’N’R tee shirts with bandanas tied around their heads sit, passing blunts back and forth. Tents in all sizes and colors dot the hillside, giving the place the feeling of a Grateful Dead show afterparty. The air tastes sweet.

Don Davies, the NDP MP for Vancouver Kingsway, calls out the Senate’s “conflicts of interest and hypocrisy of the highest order” when it comes to the Cannabis Act, and if you believe in speaking truth to power, you will find his Jun. 13 speech in the House of Commons hugely satisfying. You may even recognize […]

Puffing Joints and Wrestling Smacktalk with Comedian Ron Funches

Ron Funches recently realized how far he’s come when someone commented on his Instagram about how he used to host an open mic hoping to make enough money in tips to afford McDonald’s for his son afterward.

Since then Funches, who wears T-shirts with secret positive messages to himself, has worked hard to become a highly sought-after actor (Undateable and Powerless), writer (Kroll Show and The Eric Andre Show), and one of the best stand-up comedians working today (Comedy Central half-hour special, hit comedy album The Funches of Us). His voice is infectious, his comedy is powerfully hilarious, and he gets high whenever possible.

Ron’s taping his first hour-long Comedy Central special at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle June 19th, and all the money from ticket sales go to the homeless shelter Mary’s Place. I’ve watched him perfect this special at clubs all over LA, and it’s safe to say it’s poised to be one of this year’s best hours of stand-up comedy.

We talked over the phone about puffing joints, pro wrestling, raising a son with autism, and …

Participants in “unlawful cannabis trade” ineligible for retail licenses in Alberta

As legalization draws nearer, it’s especially interesting to see the different approaches the provinces are taking. Let’s take a look at how Alberta is licensing their cannabis retailers.
