What Exactly Is A One-Hitter Pipe?

With all of the various types of cannabis paraphernalia in today’s day and age, it’s pretty easy to forget the one-hitter pipe. Between dab rigs, extravagant glass bongs, and elaborate bubblers, the one-hitter weed pipe has certainly been overshadowed.

But that’s not to say it’s not super useful.

Sure, nowadays there are easier ways to get high on the low, thanks to vape cartridges and increased access to edibles. But not everyone likes the fancy stuff. Sometimes, the green is the way to go. So if you’re looking to get high (relatively) discreetly, you may want to look into the benefits of a one-hitter pipe. Let’s dive into what exactly a one-hitter pipe is, the different kinds of one-hitters, and how to use them.

What Is A One-Hitter Pipe?

Even the most inept could figure out the answer to the question “what is a one-hitter?” Look no further than its name for your answer.

In 2017, Canada had the lowest cannabis-related crime rate in over 20 years

The annual Uniform Crime Reporting Survey found that there were as many as 13,768 arrests for cannabis possession in Canada last year, down from 17,720 in 2016 and 25,819 back in 2013.

It would seem that, on average, Canadians got in less trouble when it comes to weed last year than in the 20 years before that, setting yet another record-low in cannabis-related crimes this year.

However, this is not true for all places in Canada, as some provinces such as Quebec are still heavily enforcing the prohibitionist laws even though sales of cannabis for personal use are set to start in October.

Amnesty for past convictions?

Most Canadians still need a lot of education on cannabis and cannabis-related happenings, as many still don’t even know how to get a medical marijuana card.

There is still a huge number of Canadians spending time in jails and prisons on nothing more than simple possession charges, and this simply needs to change.

Those that spent time in one of these institutions will also likely have their past crimes deleted from …

Ryan Reynolds producing R-rated pot parody of 90’s classic “Home Alone”

Movie star Ryan Reynolds is producing an R-rated parody of Home Alone called Stoned Alone for 20th Century Fox. It’s like Fox exec Matt Reilly saw Jon Stewart’s cameo in Half Baked and took it a little too seriously, probably thinking to himself, “Remember Home Alone? Well, let’s do that, except on weed”, while chuckling and patting […]
