The High Life: Pot for Pain

The High Life: Pot for Pain

With a little help from weed, Baltimore Raven Eugene Monroe is tearing through NFL hypocrisies. Last month, the Ravens' offensive tackle kicked off a campaign opposing NFL drug testing for pot, demanding the league consider using cannabinoids to treat chronic pain, and donated $80,000 to the University...

  • The Burning Question: Can cops still get all up in my grill just because I'm smoking herb?

    The Burning Question: Can cops still get all up in my grill just because I'm smoking herb?

    For decades police have followed their noses into people’s personal effects, using the smell of burning marijuana as “probable cause” for an arrest. Then they search the suspect—and sometimes their property. But now that roasting one in public is no longer technically a crime, how have police altered...

    Mr. Wrong: Why do you think they smoke it, dope?

    As the Leisure Party’s candidate for United States Senator, I am officially on board with Complete and Utter Legalization of the Marijuana drug. Mostly with this Legal Marijuana thing, I say look, our time on this globe is short, who are we to deny anyone a portion of succor to temper the pain...

    Newports and Soy Lattes: My uncle and his homeboy, Rod

    The drug laws in America are more ridiculous than a Tea Party diversity rally. The fact that marijuana, a natural plant that comes from the Earth, remains illegal in most states while poisonous alcohol is available for purchase on almost every corner is beyond me. My uncle taught me the difference...

    City Paper takes a trip to D.C. to experience weed freedom

    People used to have to go all the way to Amsterdam to smoke some legal weed, but here I am, in an office/house on Embassy Row in Washington, D.C., wearing a weird red smurf-looking hat and smoking a joint with Adam Eidinger, the man who can claim a lot of responsibility for the fact that this joint...

    A stoner's guide to the nation's capital

    After you get legally high at your friend’s house in the district, what else is good to do? Our art team spent much of the day visiting the museums, which is always a great way to spend a day, but there’s a lot more that might help you while away your day (and money—D.C. remains more expensive...

    How not to be a dick to your dealer

    Rule No. 1: Do anything you can do to give your weed dealers less reason to be paranoid, and their neighbors less reason to be suspicious. Your dealers are going to be as paranoid as they feel they need to be. Even if you think they are being unrealistic, just cooperate in whatever way makes them...

  • How Sir Lord Baltimore invented stoner rock because it didn't know no better

    How Sir Lord Baltimore invented stoner rock because it didn't know no better

    Named after a character in “Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid” and based out of Brooklyn, late-’60s skronk hot-mess rock band Sir Lord Baltimore has nothing to do with Baltimore really, but it’s known for being quasi-inventors of stoner metal, and so categorize it along with proto-doomsters Pentagram...

  • How to buy weed off the Deep Web

    How to buy weed off the Deep Web

    Like everything else, weed has moved to the web, the Deep Web, at least. Named as such because it's a part of the internet that doesn't appear on search engines (really that's all it actually means), subsections on the Deep Web, such as Darknet, have also become a place for internet users who want...

  • City Paper Weed Issue 2015 Product Reviews: Blue Skywalker

    City Paper Weed Issue 2015 Product Reviews: Blue Skywalker

    A hybrid strain of the universally loved Blue Dream, True Skywalker, and, apparently, Blue Skywalker-derived hash, Blue Skywalker is bonkers. Its buds are soft and fluffy to feel like you plucked a lil cloud right off the screen of “Super Mario Bros. 2” and held it in your hands, and there’s a...

    City Paper Weed Issue 2015 Product Reviews: Peanut Butter Jelly Time

    Even though it was dry when I got it, this weed has the freshest taste of any that I sampled. There’s a Proustian sweetness in the taste that you just can’t quite place. It is evocative, suggestive, seductive even; it draws you to want to taste more not because it is delicious but because you think...

    City Paper Weed Issue 2015 Product Reviews: Deadhead OG

    I don’t dig the name of this strain. It’s not that I hate the Dead, or actually I kind of do, not because its music is terrible, though some of it is, but because I really dug it for a couple of years in high school and our own past selves should always embarrass us—if you’re not embarrassed by...

    City Paper Weed Issue 2015 Product Reviews: Blackberry Kush

    A friend once described a fancy IPA as tasting like the sweat from the underarms of a horny girl, which made me jealous that it was such a good, thrown-off description of how that beer tasted. This weed has a similar flavor; there is something very hoppy about it. And, like a strong IPA, it hits...

    City Paper Weed Issue 2015 Product Reviews: Gummy Bear OG

    We’re old enough to remember when weed strains mostly seemed like a whole bunch of bullshit and the majority of the bud we got was some stepped-on and dried-up junk. Those days are long gone and in a way, the weedie is the next, new foodie (down to the obsequious whiteness that’s followed artisanal...

    The 2014 Weed Issue

    Holy smoke. It has finally happened. If you are anything like us, you are breathing easier (sort of--maybe coughing more, but not so paranoid) because for the first time in ages, you are not afraid that the police will come and kick down your door because you might have a little bit of weed inside....
