Ganja Gifts: Snoop Dogg CD Scale
New Post From DankXDrank
Every marijuana smoker should have a scale for multiple reasons. But to have a scale that looks like Snoop Dogg’s CD is a must if you’re scaless. This scale will hide in plain site of your room or car.

Jhené Aiko Could Get It (20 Photos)
New Post From DankXDrank I’m absolutely in love with Jhené Aiko and everything she does. Her attitude, love for her fans and the fact that she will smoke a blunt with you make my heart drop. It all started when she was in a car crash the day of Rock The Bells Los Angeles. She was late for her set but still showed up, in a sling, and performed. She’s truly a soldier for her fans.

New Post From DankXDrank Via
Oscar winning actress Jennifer Lawremce was photographed toking up in Hawaii. She was in the island state to re-shoot scenes for Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Lawrence was also seen enjoying some wine with a friend on a balcony. That had to of been one stellar smoking spot. Via
It has not been confirmed that she was smoking marijuana. But you be the judge of that rolled up joint she is toking up with. Successful stoners are everywhere nowadays!

Heroes of Hemp: Marc & Jodie Emery
New Post From DankXDrank This week we offer two Heroes of Hemp — Marc Emery, the Prince of Pot, and his wife, Jodie. Each is a Hero in their own right.
“Today’s DEA arrest of Marc Scott Emery, publisher of Cannabis Culture magazine, and the founder of a marijuana legalization group, is a significant blow not only to the marijuana trafficking trade in the U.S. and Canada, but also to the marijuana legalization movement…. Drug legalization lobbyists now have one less pot of money to rely on.” –Former DEA administrator Karen Tandy
Marc was arrested with two of his employees from CC. The two employees got probation, Marc and his “pot of money” got five years. He’s in year four now — coming home next summer. He could go back to Canada — today — and be finished with his sentence — the American Bureau of Prisons is good with him leaving. So, who is leaving Marc in an American prison? Why, it’s Canada’s conservative government.
Marc will get home. The Canadian government will, in time, wish it had been nicer. And, for being a political prisoner, Marc is declared a Hero of Hemp. You have not been forgotten, brother Marc.
Shortly before Marc went to prison he got married to Jodie. There is no way she could have known what she was in for when she said, “I do.” But when Marc was taken by the evil ones she stepped up and kept up the fight. None of us know how they will do when life tests us. Jodie passed every test she met. That makes her a Hero of Hemp. http://dlvr.it/4Rjkp7 LIKE&REBLOG

The Great Strains — Kush
New Post From DankXDrank “Kush” is one of two strains (the other being “Afghani“) of cannabis plants indigenous to an area covering Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan and north-west India. This is the range of the Hindu Kush Mountains. Hindu Kush means “killer of Hindus.” And this is some killer cannabis.
Kush is an indica, from the high mountains, where the sunlight is more intense and filtered by less atmosphere than at sea level. Some botanists believe that in this place the cannabis plants produce copious resin to protect the plant from the UV radiation which is stronger higher in the atmosphere. The Kush is so resinous because of its’ point of origin.
These plants made their way to our shores, in seed form, on the Hippie Hash Trail in the mid-to-late 1970′s. In the old world these plants were the first choice for making hashish. Fragrant north Indian charas and sticky black Afghani hash come from Kush plants. Today these genetics are used by the British firm GM Pharmaceuticals making legal cannabis medicines. This lady’s hit is narcotic and sedating. Trouble sleeping? Try Kush.
As with many of the strains we have explored, the Kush appears in many a hybrid. Our list offers up more than twenty-five without looking too hard. Lots of writers suggest the Kush as a good first plant for a beginning grower. “Kush strains … produce resilient, hardy plants with reliable genetics and results that are usually impressive.” — S.T.Oner in “Cannabis Indica.”
Got a favorite Kush? Let us hear it. You can find all Kush seeds here.

Connecticut University Developing New Tests for Marijuana Contaminants
By Associated Press
WEST HAVEN, CT — The microscope at the University of New Haven, set at 10-times magnification, shows a marijuana leaf covered with dozens of tiny bumps. It’s mold, and someone, somewhere could be smoking similarly contaminated pot and not have a clue.
Heather Miller Coyle, a forensic botanist and associate professor at the university, says all sorts of nasty things not visible to the naked eye have been found in marijuana – mold, mildew, insect parts, salmonella and E. coli, to name a few.
That’s why Coyle and her students earlier this year began developing a new process to detect contaminants in marijuana through DNA profiling and analysis. The aim is to be able to identify potentially harmful substances through a testing method that could make the analysis easier and quicker for labs across the country in the developing industry of marijuana quality control testing.
Twenty states and Washington, D.C., now allow medical marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation, and Washington state and Colorado have legalized the recreational pot use. Connecticut and Washington state already require testing and other states are doing the same, spawning a testing industry.
“If there’s no certification … it’s like saying we don’t check our meat for mad cow disease,” Coyle said. “That’s our goal as a private university, to develop the tools to address or mediate this issue.”
A number of labs around the country are testing marijuana for contaminants using different methods, many of which have been around for decades and used to test other plants, including food crops, for harmful substances.
The health effects of marijuana tainted with mold, pesticides and other contaminants aren’t clear, said Mason Tvert, a Colorado-based spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington, D.C. The project was founded in 1995 to lobby for the reduction or elimination of penalties for marijuana use.
“Although we have not seen significant problems with tainted marijuana in the past, we should certainly be taking steps to make sure it’s not a problem in the future,” Tvert said. “We have never seen a death solely associated with marijuana use. The same certainly can’t be said of alcohol and other drugs.”
Food and Drug Administration records from 1997-2005 show no cases in which marijuana was the primary suspected cause of death, but the drug was listed as a secondary suspected cause contributing to 279 deaths.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in July that an “epidemic” of synthetic drug use has caused rising numbers of deaths and emergency room visits.
One study released earlier this year, however, found that pesticide residues on cannabis are transferred to inhaled marijuana smoke, possibly posing a “significant toxicological threat.” The study was done by The Werc Shop, an independent testing lab for medical cannabis in Pasadena, Calif., and published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Toxicology.
Marijuana can develop mold from an inadequate drying process or poor storage conditions after harvesting. It can also become tainted with E. coli and other dangerous substances by being near farm animals.
Coyle will be developing a new method for creating DNA profiles of biological contaminants found in marijuana including mold, viruses, fungi and bacteria. The profiles could then be compared with DNA profiles of organisms kept in a database maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information – a division of the National Institutes of Health.
“What we’re trying to do is put the information together in a user-friendly format,” Coyle said. “Having some better technology in place is a good thing.”
The university’s work also will include identifying whether cannabis material is real marijuana or a synthetic version comprising non-marijuana herbs sprayed with THC, the compound that gets users high.
Coyle is aiming to complete the new process by next summer. What happens after that hasn’t been determined. The school could patent the process and sell it for a fee to whoever wanted to use it, or could allow its use for free, she said. The school also could establish its own commercial testing lab.
The University of New Haven’s work is an extension of the law enforcement-related marijuana DNA profiling the school has done over the past five years under a $100,000 grant from the federal Office of National Drug Control Policy’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas program. The school created a marijuana DNA profile database that has helped federal authorities determine where illegal pot growers and dealers got their product. http://dlvr.it/4RLF2l LIKE&REBLOG
Video: Wiz Khalifa’s European Tour Video (DayToday)
New Post From DankXDrank You can tell Wiz and the Taylor Gang were really enjoying themselves during their European tour whenever their most recent DayToday video starts out and all you hear is, “I’m high as SHIT! … Hey guys, I’m high as fuck… up here.”
But if you’re not already aware, DayToday is the video series put out by Wiz Khalifa to show what he’s up to on a daily basis, a higher-end vlog of sorts.
And in this episode, they hit up some of the nightlife in Berlin, Germany, a skatepark in South London and of course partake of some local produce in Amsterdam.
Now, I’m not sure how often Wiz Khalifa utters this phrase, but after a round of dabs and joints Wiz is “higher than he’s ever been in his life” and proceeds to describe his head as a hallway… a library of books, which he is running down while screaming.
Have any of you been that high? What’s the weirdest collection of words to escape your lips when you’ve reached that level of highness?
Feel free to dive into the current episode here…
And if that’s not enough Taylor Gang for you, then here’s the whole damn playlist…
