Interstate 420-mile markers are apparently such popular trophies among stoners that some states have decided to take a unique and unexpected measure to stop the theft of these signs. Rather than replace the mileposts as soon as they’re stolen, Idaho decided to take a different course of action that might be more efficient. Enter the 419.9-mile mark seen in the image above! More →
As the social stigma associated with marijuana slowly evaporates with each passing year, it may be just a matter of time before the laws that govern drinking and driving are applied to smoking pot.
Anticipating that change, one Canadian company has already begun testing a breathalyzer for marijuana, the first of its kind. Based out of Vancouver, the aptly named Cannabix Technologies has been testing a prototype device that can accurately detect the presence of THC in a person’s system. As opposed to alcohol breathalyzers, however, the pot breathalyzer in question is unable to measure the degree to which a person who has been smoking pot is impaired.
There are plenty of substances out there that mess with your head. Some are legal, and some aren’t. Some are dangerous, and some are helpful. Some are more addictive than others.

We’ve heard plenty of arguments against legalizing marijuana in recent years, but every once in a while someone comes out with something brand new.

Given that smoking marijuana is sometimes the only way to understand certain statements made by one of its former governors, it’s all too proper that Alaska this week became the third state in the U.S. to legalize pot. The Associated Press brings us word that smoking, growing and possessing pot is now legal in America’s biggest state “thanks to a voter initiative aimed at clearing away 40 years of conflicting laws and court rulings.” More →
A new study published in the Scientific Reports journal reveals that marijuana is 114 times less deadly than alcohol, being the least deadly among the seven drugs researchers looked at.

Have you ever been tempted to buy your dog a truckload of steaks just to see if there was a limit to how many of them they could eat at just one sitting? Well when marijuana became legal in the state of Washington, we were similarly curious about whether there was a theoretical maximum amount of pot that its residents could smoke… and now our questions have been answered.

No one will ever accuse rapper 2 Chainz of being a presidential-level debater. That said, he didn’t have to be when he went up against Nancy Grace in a debate on legalizing pot this week because Grace did just about the worst job advocating against pot legalization that we’ve ever seen.

Now that marijuana is legal in the state of Washington, the team at YouTube channel Cut Video decided to find three grandmothers in the state who had never smoked pot before and get them high.
