For the Love of Weed

Whether it’s poolside, camped out by an exotic new beach in the Caribbean, or just grilling outside my own house I will be representin’ this summer and so should you! The more we rep our cannabis activist, supporter, user, and lover brand the more we normalize marijuana and the better our chance for legalization! Yes, we are telling on ourselves a bit, but who cares? It’s just weed.

Here are some my favorite weed lover accessories this year:

Cannabis Leaf Float

Nothing says Free the Leaf more than an actual weed leaf floating in the pool. Just love this float so much actually! Last year,  I was chasing my giant swan float up and down the beach all day. That mofo just doesn’t understand the “sit” command. And getting on…forget about it. I swallowed way to much water falling off of that swan.  But this year I’ll be sitting pretty in my marijuana leaf doughnut/tire style float. My favorite cause all you have to do it stick your butt in and you’re good to go. I picked up mine from Urban Outfitters for $50 bucks. (only available online)

Another less expense option on the floats that I saw while searching was this one in the link for under $30 with free shipping at Amazon.  But since it’s more of a raft I don’t really like it, can already see myself sliding off but to each his own and maybe it’s perfect for you.

Cannabis Leaf Nail Charms and Chokers

Much less out there than the in your face float, these nails charms still scream, “I’m a stoner.” And totally reps our cannabis activist goals! The chokers are super sexy too:

 

All from Bong Beauties. Where you can also find a ton of really cute apparel like weed leaf leggings, body suits and t-shirts. I know for a fact everybody loves it when I rock my nail charms on the gram but no apparel real compares to these..

Kush Aviators

From Spencers and at $12.99 I can’t think of a better way to catch some rays this summer. Well except for grilling out with a:

Marijuana Leaf Apron

Cause it’s not really a BBQ if there’s no weed right? So instead of rocking some food, fake abs or a dumb ass quote such as, “May the Fork be with You,” on your apron. Let’s grill and tell em’ what we’re really on. Which is relaxing with Mary Jane and grilling out in preparation for the munchies to come.  Highly (literally) recommend you order this from Amazon sooner than later because it’s an import so it takes a few weeks to deliver.

There are truly so many cute and fun ways to be representin’ if I missed any good ones let me know in the comments below. Hope you all have a litty summer and don’t forget to subscribe , follow and retweet so you and your stoner fam stay up  to date on all my shenanigans.

 

 

Marijuana Justice Act of 2017

Politics is one of those things, along with religion and sex, that can be very controversial to discuss. However every now and then exceptions have to be made and there is currently a bill that we, the cannabis smoking / supporting/ advocates of this country, need to actively put our unalienable American rights to work for: The Marijuana Justice Act of 2017

With life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in mind, The Marijuana Justice Act, in relation, will put an end to federal vs state on the issue of cannabis. The problem we are currently facing is while states are currently legalizing the use, sale and cultivation of the plant that’s going to change the world, Cannabis. Federally it remains on the controlled substance list and is illegal and will always be illegal on the federal level unless this bill becomes law.

The bill was introduced to the Senate on August 1, 2017 by Senator Cory Booker from the state of New Jersey. And as of December 18, 2017, Senator Ron Wyden from the state of Oregon became it’s first co-sponsor.

The bill, also known as S.1689, will take marijuana off the federal controlled substances list. Making the possession, sale and cultivation federally legal. Allowing those with possession charges to expunge their records, those currently incarcerated on marijuana charges to file appeals and most importantly will put an end to marijuana arrests in this country. Which, if you have ever been there, is completely unjust. To say cannabis is a controlled substance is ridiculous. A more appropriate title would be to call it simply a plant, which it is, and that’s not even giving it any justice either.  This plant is a gift from above, there’s a lot more to weed than just smoking it. And to put someone in prison for a plant is in complete conflict with our unalienable American rights. If nature is illegal then freedom does not exist and that’s why we must get political!

Currently our bill is just sitting on capitol hill: (Iol)

But we can help get The Marijuana Justice Act of 2017 passed if we really try. How? By calling your states congressmen and asking them to support and co-sponsor S.1689.

  • A list of all the current Senate members with their contact information can be found here: US Senate
  • A list of all the House of Representatives with their contact information can be found here: US House

You can search by name or state and a phone number to call will be right there. I plan to contact mine but I am just one person and so I urge you to do the same.  The Marijuana Justice Act of 2017 would fix this country in so many ways. Why not here it from the man who wrote it in the first place Senator Cory Booker:

Don’t forget to follow the innovative and bipartisan problem-solver  @SenBooker  on twitter.  And always remember this:

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama
