Ever notice that a lot of weed smokers can't help but dress like it? It's sort of like vegans talking about being vegan. Today's roundup is dedicated to that trend.
Everyone's favorite stoner day has officially arrived, and we've got some appropriately dank memes to help you celebrate it. Grab your visine, buy some munchies and get ready to blaze it. Stoner memes should be more main stream, its a shame that they haven't gotten more attention. But memes when you are stoned are truly that much better. Opening up your mind to connections and enhancing the experience, at least if you know what you're doing. Otherwise you're lodged in a couch for the afternoon sans the ability to speak. But while your vegging out on the couch, try to spice up your life a little with these spicy dank memes.
It's only a matter of time before marijuana is legalized all over the United States (we've got 40 states to go) and the practice of smoking or consuming jazz cabbage is rapidly becoming normalized. This is especially apparent on the internet - the proof is in these memes that are directed at the THC fiends - for everything else, there's CBD.
Y'all ever get so stoned off of the reefer that you forgot the names of simple, everyday things? Yeah, uhh, us either. If THAT were to happen, we might come up with our own clever substitute terminologies so as to attempt to communicate. That's basically what we're serving up here. While some of the "stoner names" are basic AF, others are freakin' brilliant.
As marijuana prohibition becomes a thing of the past, it’s time to start looking toward the future.
That’s where Seedo comes in.

Marketed toward the 21st-century young urban professional, Seedo does all the work of growing your sativa and indica for you. You just plant the seeds in Seedo, and like a Ronco Rotisserie Oven, you just set it, and…

The presidential election wasn’t the only thing on the ballot yesterday. In fact, three states held votes to decide whether they would join Colorado, Washington, and Oregon to become the next 420-friendly states, and vote they did.
California, Nevada, and Massachusetts all legalized marijuana for recreational use yesterday. But that’s not all, “Voters in Florida, North Dakota, and Arkansas approved medical marijuana measures,” according to the Associated Press.
"I'm thrilled," said Northern California marijuana grower Nikki Lastreto to AP. "I'm so excited that California can now move forward."
So if you don’t like the election night results, no need to leave the country. You can simply go to Massachusetts, California, or Nevada and toke a load off.
Bad news for those in need of pain relief in Arkansas. The Arkansas Supreme Court has decided to remove issue 7, a new medical marijuana law, to the November 8 ballot. Despite 142,000 early voters having already voted for issue 7, which allows patients with specific medical conditions and doctor's approval to purchase marijuana from dispensaries, the court has decided not to add it on the November ballot.
"Justices tossed out more than 12,000 signatures that were approved by election officials for the proposal, saying supporters didn't comply with laws regarding registration and reporting of paid canvassers," reports ABC News. "The decision left the group nearly 2,500 signatures shy of what was needed to qualify for the ballot."
Arkansas voters do have another marijuana-related issue on the ballot, t Issue 6 is up for a vote but has more restrictions, namely it doesn't include a provision that allows patients to grow their own if they don't live near a dispensary.
Anyway, the whole thing seems to be harshing a lot of mellows, which is never cool. Also, you know, this type of thing could have really helped people, as many were quick to point out.
Snoop Dogg, the world's most chill weed advocate, is taking on the NFL's desire to have access to guns in a new Instagram video.
Snoop takes issue with the NFL wanting to give football players access to guns but not access to weed. He successfully argues that football is already a violent profession which lends itself to perpetuating a violent environment amongst the players, and that weed would be a panacea to this problem of violence and allow the players some respite from their aggressive environment.
He even reached out the NFL to offer his services as an advocate to make this change happen:
Do it, Snoop.

These recipes will make your Thanksgiving meal taste just like grandma's, if your grandma just happens to smoke a lot of ganja.

Men's Warehouse founder George Zimmer has come out in favor of marijuana legalization in a big way, admitting that he regularly partakes of the drug that has seen sweeping support over the past few years.
He called the war against marijuana "the biggest con ever perpetrated" in an interview with CNBC:
"I've been smoking marijuana on a regular basis for about 50 years," Zimmer said to CNBC, before joking, "As you can see, it's really impacted me in a negative way."
Zimmer gave the keynote speech Friday at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Expo in Los Angeles, pushing for legalization. "Everybody in the country knows what the truth here is, except the 535 people we elect to make these decisions in Washington, D.C.," he told attendees. "It's astounding."
He's throwing his support behind an initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in California next year, just as he supported the proposition that failed in 2010. No matter what form legalization might take, Zimmer said, "I think it's important that we protect limited home cultivation without any government licensing, so whether it's one plant or 10 plants, I don't know, but I think that's very important."
We're not sure if you know this, but Snoop Dogg really likes marijuana.
So much so that he announced the launching of a new media platform from TechCrunch's Disrupt Conference Sept. 21.
D-O-double-G said the platform, called Merry Jane, will be many things, but most importantly a celebration of all things cannabis.
According to The Verge writing from Disrupt:
It sounds like the site will combine a traditional editorial voice with consumer-oriented features like a dispensary mapping service and a buying guide for marijuana-related products.
...The site doesn't officially open until October, but Snoop and Chung are giving 420 users per day — yes, really — access to its beta version until then. They've also shared an example of the kind of content they'll have on the site. Deflowered is a "groundbreaking interview series that will profile innovative people as they enjoy cannabis," and its first episode stars two former Marines talking about post-military life and alternative medicine. "After watching where the cannabis industry is headed, I wanted to create a platform that will take this movement further," said Snoop. "Merry Jane is a game-changing platform for pop culture."
Though the site is in beta, they're already released the first of the 'Deflowered' series on their YouTube channel featuring two former marines discussing how medical marijuana has helped them treat their PTSD.
You know you need less guilt in your life, so along comes science to give you the go ahead for picking up that bong.
A study that came out earlier this year proclaims a whole lot of good news for those who find recreation in a cannabis variety.
Essentially, the conclusion says that, within the confines of their data, marijuana use leads to a lower body mass index. Meaning, pot makes you skinnier.
The AV Club does a splendid job of summarizing the findings:
the brilliant researchers found that in their sample population—786 Nunavik Inuits whose health data were surveyed in 2004—marijuana use also corresponded with a lower incidence of diabetes. The authors of the study do caution that some "caveats must be considered when interpreting their results." In other words, you should definitely smoke dope right now because it would be irresponsible not to fill your body with that nourishing, disease-fighting devil weed.
You'd think this sort of habit would pile on the pounds, but don't worry, science has accounted for that. In their study, the researchers from the eminent and infallible CHU De Québec Research Center write, "Frequent cannabis use is associated with higher caloric intake, but investigations into overweight/obesity have yielded inconsistent results." See? The results are inconsistent, so go ahead and eat as much as you want—but only if you ingest plenty of that wholesome, slimming giggle grass first.
So there you go! It's never too late for beach body 2015 and science has the weight loss tip of a lifetime.
Out, out damned pot!
I see Queen Dab hath been with thee...
Now is the winter of our spliff's content.
These are just a few of the pun-laden headlines you're sure to see following The Independent's report about the cannabis residue found in Shakespeare's pipes
State-of-the-art forensic technology from South Africa has been used to try and unravel the mystery of what was smoked in tobacco pipes found in the Stratford-upon-Avon garden of William Shakespeare.
Neither of the pipes with c0caine came from Shakepeare's garden. But four of the pipes with cannabis did.
Results of this study (including 24 pipe fragments) indicated cannabis in eight samples, nicotine in at least one sample, and in two samples definite evidence for Peruvian c0caine from coca leaves.
Shakespeare may have been aware of the deleterious effects of c0caine as a strange compound. Possibly, he preferred cannabis as a weed with mind-stimulating properties.
So, it turns out that the bard liked to get his smoke on. And are you at all surprised?
Considering the wild fantasies contained in A Midsummer's Night Dream or The Tempest, you could see how some herbal inspiration infused itself to his quill.
