Cannabis school is in session in the beautiful relaxing surrounds of one of the leading doobie destinations enthusiasts dream about. Jamaica is a marijuana mecca and plenty of potheads have the sunny island home of Bob Marley on their bucket list. However, legalization in USA has many people pushing it a bit further down their cannabis adventure list. Recently Jamaica relaxed their marijuana laws and will probably continue to follow the US’s lead towards legalization. Their tourism does rely on tokers.
Monday April 20 2015 March Vapor Central to Yonge Dundas Square 11am - Noon Rally Yonge Dundas Square Noon - 6pm The ninth annual Toronto Hash Mob marijuana legalization rally returns to YD Square Monday Apr. 20 promising more stoner satire, comedic antics and cannabis inhalation than ever before. The activist group has successfully used stoner showmanship to raise awareness to the harms cannabis prohibition has created for over a decade.
The Mernahuana Zone stepped back in time with Doreen Brown to learn a great deal about Toronto’s cannabis history. The story Brown told is almost too unreal to believe - smoking cannabis for 98 days in a hospital environment to determine cannabis effects on people. She was a Yorkville hippie and was chosen to partake in a study involving actual marijuana. Every night Brown and nine other women smoked marijuana and the government researchers studied its effects on their productivity. Researchers continued to make their cannabis stronger until the participants refused it.
Loveable toker terrorists Toronto Hash Mob are excited to bring an incredible 4/20 Smoke Out to Yonge and Dundas Square. We’ve added twenty booths this year to cover costs and renters are promising to pitch in on creating a spiritive 4/20.
Under pressure to have amazeball outfits for Toronto 4/20 Smoke Out, I think it’s time to leave my decisions to a pro. After nine years of outdoing myself - not content with just one outfit I now do multiple outfit changes - I seek fashionista(s) who want to work with my ‘Lady Gaga of Ganja’ style. People are really into developing their own sense of style for 4/20 and I think my decision to go with fun costumes and not a suit has had a great impact. Media use our rally for cannabis b-roll and photos all year long because they can snap so much variety.
It’s not as bad as the dark ages, but prohibition has had a huge effect on wiping out cannabis culture history. Until the internet most cannabis knowledge was passed directly to one another during a session or possibly read in a magazine. Prohibition creates a perfect storm for lost knowledge and losing our history prevents us from understanding our past. It also helps us avoid repeated mistakes and creates a solid foundation for our movement.
Viewers were left debating ‘n’ dabbing about whether they had just watched the best ever webisode of The Mernahuana Zone. Many declared TMZ 190 Examines Medical Marijuana in Montreal & LA to be new favorite. TMZ is setting the bar high in 2015! A post show debate among people in the chatroom showed a common theme of what their favorite webcasts are - great interviews, audience interaction and news and quirky videos.
Everything was humming along for The Mernahuana Zone’s third week of 2015 webisode. The team did a fab job eliminating winter doldrums with zaniness, zombies and doobies.
TMZ 188 was a very stoney dabtastic affair with host Matt Mernagh glazed over at times. They had an Errlectric dab unit to dab some great shatter from Hamilton Dave and it appeared to do the dynamic duo in. Mernagh flubbed a question during their Marvina interview by asking Smash “What was I going to ask next?” She hangs him out to dry with a look of surprize. Other than this blown spot due to stoniness, the interview with San Francisco assorted box cannabis delivery service Marvina went fantastic.
It didn’t take me long to reply to Toronto alt weekly NOW editor’s email about getting naked in their Love Your Body Issue (Thursday Jan. 8). I thought it’d be a great and checked with two friends to confirm before hitting reply. The experience was extremely positive and the published results speak for themselves - we all look fantastic! Going into it I knew their goal was to create a diverse group of people who didn’t fit typical mainstream media mold of what beauty is.
