Late in 2016, Denver, CO became the first city in the United States to approve the consumption of Cannabis in public areas with the passing of a four-year pilot program called Initiative 300. Over 300,000 citizens rolled in – many procrastinating until the final hours (can’t say I’m surprised) – skewing polling results projected during the election. The polls are in – and tourists and renters alike are now celebrating in specifically-allocated venues – but the new laws didn’t come without some opposition and a few guidelines to follow.
Tobacco has played an important role in the history of the United States. From the Colonial plantations that allowed American trade to prosper, to the decades where doctors would prescribe tobacco for weight loss, the plant has proliferated in popularity and remains a major aspect of society today. Artifacts that celebrate this extensive and interesting history are now in vogue, and demand top dollar by tobacco enthusiasts and antique collectors alike.
Cannabis culture has come such a long way since the sixties. So much so that modern pot smokers speak more like wine snobs than the seedy stereotypes portrayed in movies and TV. In-store dispensary discussions often revolve just as much around the flavor profile of Cannabis products as the effects. As a result, the glass pipe industry has come up with countless innovations to improve the quality of flavor you get from your herb – often times even borrowing designs from laboratory science. After a few decades of this growing demand we now have a sweeping array of clever pipe designs, and an exhibition to your local head shop is likely to blow your mind. We’ll take a look at some of these new innovations – and a few pro tips- to make your smoking experience delicious as possible.
