According to the Contra Costa Times, the Oakland airport has secretly established a rule that lets medical marijuana patients bring up to 8 oz of medicine on the plane. WOW!!! I guess I am going to have to start flying out of oakland airport if I want to bring my meds anywhere. Be careful though folks, there is still a lot of backlash coming from this state laws only initiative. Make sure to be careful and not go crazy, if you are going to bring some meds on the plane make it a small amount. If they really wanted to they could drag you in on federal charges because yes folks, the airport is federal property.

I know all you So Cal people already know pretty well about the BEE LINE but this is for everyone else out there.A few years ago I was medicating with a friend of mine and I noticed a rope tied around his lighter. He lit the end of it and proceeded to light his bowl with this piece of rope. At first I thought he was a little strange, but then he explained to me about how this little piece of string helps you get the best taste out of your buds. I quickly proceeded in trying the bee line, and discovered that it really does help you get the full flavor with no extra chemical taste.


This fantastic product I am talking about is called BEE LINE. The Bee Line is an organic hemp made string that has been dipped in beeswax. They are easy to tie around your lighter (demonstration coming soon) and can go anywhere with you. The line comes in two different thicknesses for your specific needs. For pipes I suggest the $3 dollar small spool, but for all you water pipe lovers out there I suggest paying the extra money and buying a spool on thick line (as seen on the right above)


Lets just say I have quickly converted everyone to using this fantastic product….

dr_bronnersAccording to the Huffington Post, the President of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soup Company was arrested Tuesday morning while trying to plant industrial hemp seeds on the lawn of the headquarters of the DEA. David Bronner’s company profits more than ten million dollars annually from the help of sales of hemp made soaps.


Industrial hemp is classified by the US government because it has a minute level of THC in it. Even though you could smoke a few hundred pounds to the dome, you most likely would not get high what so ever. Industrial hemp can be used for a variety of things, textiles, paper and even fuel. I know Dr. Bonner was trying to make a point that America should wake up and start looking at hemp as a product that can help the nation, but he also is going to spend some time in jail for his little stunt. My hat is off to you Dr. Bonner, I think I am going to go buy a bar of your soap to support your looming legal bills.

Looks like I am going to have to buy up all of the Strawberry Swishers I can find.

As some of you might have heard, the US has decided to band flavored tobacco because of its appealing nature to children. Even though I agree with this because I remember when I was a kid it was definitely the shiny and colorful boxes of the flavored tobaccos that would attract my attention. If you go to a proper head shop you can see that the amount of flavored blunt wraps these days and it really is a little out of hand.


Although the law has passed, it cannot be implemented because regulations have not been drawn up yet. I feel bad for all of those people who don’t have access to great weed and need a little flavor to go with their budz.

So just a little head up to all you flavored swisher and blunt wrap fans, start buying up your lifetime supply before they go away….

The Gandalf Pipe


I have seen them around the internet but never had the chance to actually use one. A friend of mine was searching around Haight Street today and managed to find an original Gandalf pipe from Starfish Designs.


The only way to authenticate it in my opinion is to ask if they are made by Starfish. If they don’t know what you are talking about then I would just move on. Starfish Designs is based out of Oregon and pretty much brought these pipes onto the scene. It seems like everyone is trying to rip them off now. They range in size from x-large to small. My buddy went with the medium cause he said he felt like he would break the big one.  The smoke is smooth and powerful and if you are lucky enough it might make you see some hobbits running around.

Do you want to grow some home grown but are limited by space? Well worry no more, thanks to the revolutionary advances of indoor grow tents.

After conferring with many patients over years of budtending, pretty much everyone was in favor of the Secret Jardin Tents.

They are as easy to set up as a family picnic, just:

  • Pick a model that fits your grow space
  • Set Up a light and a vent fan
  • You are now ready to grow!!


As you can see in this picture there is a 3×3 tray inside of a 4×4 ten with a 600 W HPS.


There is a carbon filter with a can fan cooling down the lights an venting out the window. What i love about these tents so much is that you can customize your set up in a any way and try multiple locations for your equipment. In this case the side pane;l of the tent was opened and pushed up against a window with an AC unit.

The Jardin’s are a little more expensive than some of the other lines out there but I assure you they are the best. Other brands such as Sun Huts and Hydro Huts seem to be made with flimsier material. A few years ago Hydro Hut actually used to use PVC piping for the frame work, which would cause carcinogens to get into the plants because of the temperature. They have since fixed that problem but I still wouldn’t go there. The Jardin’s used to come in a few limited sizes but over the years they have branched out into making tents bigger and bigger. The site is very detail oriented and it gives recommendation you aon what lights to use for each specific tent, which I suggest you follow thoroughly.
