The Mernahuana Zone has been on point this year with interviews and stoner high jinx in 201. Thanks to everyone who has made our weekly webcast amazeballs and especially our viewers. More potheads are tuning in live and toking along or watching the replay on YouTube or downloading our webcast via iTunes.
After last nights best of (Tuesday December 30) I realized how much professional fun we have been having. Almost every week we are raising the bar over the last!
Last nights session was sponsored by MarijuanaStocks.com and I look forward to having more sponsors seeking to sponsor a TMZ session. The best marijuana marketing imo is getting a room full of people gonzo’d on ganja.
420 Bud Swap has improved with the treasure chest of goodies from our sponsor Crop King Seeds. Swap of the Night has put a new emphasis on trading and we’ve seen several traders run the board by making multiple trades. More people are coming up to the stage to come out and trade their cannabis strain for someone elses.
Additionally a second TMZ segment has been added. Typical TMZ, it’s slightly in flux, but it’s either Guess That Ganja or How Much Does That Weed Weigh. The idea is to guess the weight of the ganja and I think we have finally decided on Guess That Ganja!
Bud Buddy sponsors an online chatroom contest where Canadians can guess the ganja weight and the viewer who guesses best wins weed. If you tune in for only 20 minutes live – this would be the time to do it!
Who Cares Get Dopes asks how much does that weed weigh and people who participated in 420 Bud Swap are invited back up to figure out how much a nug of marijuana weighs. TMZ’s goal is make it like the Price Is Right.
The Mernahuana Zone broke huge ground with our interviews. It was awesome to have Tweed, Tilray, BedroCan and Peace Naturals agree to interviews. They didn’t have to and the other Health Canada License Producers haven’t agreed to a chat about their operation.
Our most memorable interview was with RCMP officer Ron Francis who outed himself as a legal medical marihuana patient in the early part of 2014. Sadly, before the year was out he committed suicide because of prohibitionist bully.
Our best segment happened during the summer in response to tourists asking us where to score. There are numerous Toronto Craiglists postings for 420 For Sale and we did a live search and then messaged the number to arrange a purchase. Total time needed to buy marijuana was an hour.
We interviewed three new marijuana vapor lounges, Winnipeg’s Vapes on Main, Hamilton’s Melanheadz Vapor Lounge, and Halifax’s High Life Social Club. Best, Halifax police department confirmed via a press release marijuana vapor lounges are legal….for now.
Numerous levels of government are moving to clamp down via local and provincial laws. City of Vancouver anti-vapor bylaw goes so far that some people claim you can’t fart within city limits.
Here in Ontario, the newly elected Liberals new legislation against e-cigs includes all forms of vaporization and vaporizers. While not mentioning marijuana specifically the legislation will indeed impact all Ontario lounges. Niagara Falls, Hamilton, Kingston and Toronto all have places where people may inhale marijuana.
A province wide advocacy campaign to exempt medical marihuana vaporization from Ontario Liberals’s legislation is the first order of business of 2015. We want every city to be involved and we’ll use this as our building block towards 4/20, which will then begin setting us up for the upcoming federal election.
2015 will indeed be the Year of Legalization and The Mernahuana Zone is your weekly weedy webcast source for all things stoner. Join us for a live session every Tuesday from 720-1020pm from Vapor Central or watch the replay or download TMZ on iTunes or SoundCloud.
