Montana’s twin-measure victory also wraps up a clean sweep for statewide legalization measures across the country.
South Dakota legalized medical and adult-use marijuana
Constitutional Amendment A legalizes the adult use of cannabis passed.
Oregon decriminalizes all drugs and legalizes medical psilocybin
Oregon’s two legalization measures, 109 and 110 have passed.
Measure 109 (legalizing the medical use of psilocybin) won with 56% of the vote.
Meanwhile, Measure 110 (decriminalizing all drugs) won with 59% among Oregon voters.
Arizona is now the 13th legal adult-use state
Arizona’s Prop. 207, legalizing the adult use of marijuana passed.
Arizona the 13th state to legalize the adult use of cannabis.
Mississippi legalizes medical marijuana
Its a huge victory for the legalization movement, the culturally and politically conservative state of Mississippi has legalized the medical use of cannabis.
New Jersey becomes a fully legal state
“Garden State voters spoke resoundingly,” commented NORML Executive Director Erik Altieri. “They are demanding their lawmakers end the failed policy of marijuana criminalization, and instead pursue a more sensible path of regulation and legalization.”
“Because Question 1 is a non-binding, legislatively referred ballot question, the New Jersey legislature must now take immediate action to draft and implement enabling legislation in a manner that is in accordance with voters’ sentiments,” said Carly Wolf, NORML’s state policies coordinator.
This is a victory for social justice given that Black residents of New Jersey are 3.5 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana than white residents despite similar usage rates.”
Washington DC decriminalized psychedelic plants
Initiative 81, the Entheogenic Plants and Fungus Policy Act of 2020, makes certain psychedelic drug crimes the “lowest enforcement priority” of the District’s Metropolitan Police Department. Voters passed it 76-23.
Florida legalization advocates are breathing easier
It looks like Florida’s Amendment 4, which would have made it much more difficult to legalize adult-use cannabis, went down in defeat.
This bud is celebrated for its very fruity profile that smells just like a bag of the sugary candy. This pot has resin-drenched buds that range in color from dark purple to light green. Runtz is also known for its smoke that is smooth and welcoming alongside an elevated high that lasts for hours.
What stood out most for me was the excellent sweet aroma. Its like a bag or sugary candy. The crystals and the tight bud formation make it clear you are in for a treat when you first see it up close.
I tried rolling a doobie with my batch of Runtz but it was a bit too sticky and fresh. It will probably be a little better for js in a couple of weeks. I think you’d be better off using a bong or old school standard regular pipe for this batch of Runtz. I used my Shmokez pipe which was perfect for it. A little goes a long way so the tiny pipe is the perfect match. The only issue was that the beautiful smell of those flowers permeated everywhere when I had the Shmokez pipe in my pocket with its little wooden stash box packed with Runtz! It doesnt seal very well so i smelled pretty weedy walkin’ around. Worth it! 🙂
So I smoked a bowl of Runtz, then did a bong hit too and now I’ve completely forgotten what I was doing…. 😉

A rosin press is a tool used to extract cannabinoids through heat and pressure. The press typically has two heated plates that are pressed down onto each other to create enough force to facilitate the extraction. This video is an excellent demonstration of the process!
Every stoner clique has their de-facto joint roller: the guy everyone turns to when the team wants to burn one, or the girl who can twist perfect j while walking into the wind holding all her smoking supplies.
Are you, um, not that person? Are you looking to improve your rolling technique? With a bit of practice and the right info, you don’t have to be a magician to break out a nice smooth-burning joint.
Stock Your Stash Box
Make sure you have all the key elements for rolling great joints: this should include a weed grinder, crutches, papers, and a lighter at the bare minimum, but deck yourself out if you want to.
Although many steps in the joint rolling process are largely a matter of preference, there are several tips that require the above items if you want to improve your smoking experience. There are also some very clever weed accessories that have become essentials in our 420 smoking kit.
Are you still grabbing whatever kind of papers they happen to have at the gas station? The type you choose will affect the taste of your joints and the rolling experience. There are three main types of paper used in rolling papers on the market and they each have certain traits that affect the joints characteristics in key ways especially taste and how it burns. The more common are the wood pulp rolling papers, try to avoid those. You are better off with a paper made of hemp or rice. In a pinch though, make due with what you have access to. Those just starting out should try a hemp paper as they are easier to roll with and burn more evenly than the others. Expert rollers looking for a flavorless, slow burn and a precise roll will benefit from rice papers. They can be a bit more fragile but again, thats no problem for all but the most noobie of doobie rollers.
Select the Right Size Paper For You and Your Situation
The right size rolling paper is a situational decision based on a few key factors: How many people are you smoking with? How high are their tolerances? How many joints do you intend to roll? And now we are talking about our new virus world where everyone should just have their own personal splif.
The most popular and widely available sizes are 1 ¼” size. 1 ¼” is generally considered to be the ‘standard’ cannabis rolling paper and suits most situations. Sometimes you might want to experiment with the bombers but most potheads will tell you that the extra large doobies are a blast but tend to waste pot. Depending on your personal smoking style you’ll probably want the 1 1/4s for most situation. A great tip is to keep a test tube and a cork handy and snuff your bigger joints out by starving it of oxygen instead of crushing it out. You’ll get an extra session or two out of your spliff that way!
Of course you can get always just break weed up with your fingers but grinding will make it so much better. Clipping it up with little nail scissors are great if the weed is on the damper side. You don’t need to spend $60+ for the best grinder either. Most any grinder will suffice. Keep in mind both the tiny ones and the giant ones can be awkward so its best to go for something in the middle. Regardless of your rolling abilities, crafting a perfect joint will be a futile exercise if your weed isn’t evenly ground. We recommend metal grinders, as they are more durable and provide a smoother, more consistent grinding action – but they are also available in plastic or wood version. Just use one!
How and why to crutch your joints
Have you ever been handed a joint with a soggy end that you can barely smoke? Don’t be “that guy” responsible for subjecting your smoking circle to that experience. Also called a filter or tip, a crutch is essentially a mouthpiece made of glass or wood pulp – you can purchase perfectly-sized rolling tips or make them at home. They act as a handle that aids in holding and passing to others while optimizing airflow for an easy draw. As if that weren’t enough, they also aid in the joint rolling process by providing a perfect cylinder to which the rolled cannabis can be integrated. The best part: now you can smoke your joint to the very end.
Arrange Slowly Before Rolling
Have you ever noticed that some joints come out looking like they have a little”pooch” in the middle? A bit of gentle organization with your fingertips is all that’s needed to position your bud properly and prevent the “pregnant” look, but it’s often overlooked. Pinners (straight, cigarette-shaped joints) are typically rolled for smaller groups and are very efficient, whereas cones (fluted joints that flare at the end) provide a powerful hit and maximize the size of the rolling paper.
Final Setup Then Roll Patiently
It’s not easy to roll great joints if the weed is all over the place, so take some time and get it arranged neatly in the paper. Take a little time time to work the cannabis down into the paper to create a pencil shape. If you are struggling, keep at it, there is no substitute for practice!
After you’ve arranged the bud and rolled the paper back and forth between your fingers, set the whole thing down on the table and see how your roll behaves. If it doesn’t hold its pencil shape, you won’t be able to get that tight roll you’re looking for.
Create Paper Tension Using the Tip
If you get a little crinkle in the paper after the initial tuck, you can fix it! Using one hand hold the tuck in place, shift your other hand to the tip of the paper and pull away from the crutch. Focus on creating just enough tension in the paper to smooth it out, but don’t pull so hard that you tear it. This is an easy place to struggle, so we have some more detailed tips for how to roll a cone joint to help you get through the tuck and roll process as a beginner.
Light it Correctly, No Inhale on Ignition
Do not try to earn style points when lighting your joints. Cannabis and organic raw hemp flower joints do not burn like cigarettes, and therefore should be ignited in a different fashion. Gently rotate the joint while slowly increasing the amount of direct heat to create a long-lasting, slow-burning cherry right from the tip of your joint, preventing the dreaded “canoe” that forms when part of the joint burns more quickly than the rest. If someone rubs their saliva all over the side of the joint to slow down the canoe, you might feel like skipping your turn.
Try Rolling An Inside-Out Joint And Smoke Less Paper
Did you know you can roll joints with the paper flipped inside out? By minimizing the amount of paper used to seal the joint, you can further decrease the burn rate and avoid the unwanted paper taste. Rolling inside out may have a steeper learning curve, but those who master it rarely return to the traditional style. Give it a try once you have your basic technique down — you might surprise yourself.
Twax for Potency
Twaxing is to apply hash/concentrates to the inside, outside, or tip of your rolls/bowls in any way, shape, or form.” The main benefit here is a huge increase in the potency of your joint, which makes concentrates a great addition. If you don’t have access to BHO or any cannabis concentrates where you live, you can still learn how to make dabs at home! By implementing the inexpensive and easy-to-execute rosin press tech, you can use any cannabis flower to produce concentrates for your joints or blunts. Basically squish some bud in a press and the goo is good to go!
CBD Joints for Medicinal Benefits
CBD is a derivative of the cannabis plant. It is almost half of the cannabis extract. However, unlike THC doesnt get you high. CBD is legal all over the country.
CBD is legal and safe and has multiple health benefits. CBD assists the endocannabinoid system (ECS) found in our bodies. The ECS is responsible for managing brain functions and the immune system. CBD interacts with the C1 and C2 receptors of the ECS. This way CBD improves neural functions and the overall immune system

4/20 is the very doap holiday celebrating marijuana.
Why April 20? There are a few competing explanations as to why the potheads day of celebration landed on this day, but the real origin remains a bit of a mystery.
Some say it came out of a ritual started by a group of high school students in the 1970s. A doap group of Californian teenagers ritualistically smoked marijuana every day at 4:20 pm. The ritual spread, and soon 420 became code for smoking marijuana. Eventually 420 was converted into 4/20 for calendar purposes, and the day of celebration was born.
One common belief is that 420 was the California police or penal code for marijuana, but there’s no evidence to support those claims.
Another doap theory is that there are 420 active chemicals in marijuana, hence an obvious connection between the drug and the number. But there are more than 500 active ingredients in marijuana, and only about 70 or so are cannabinoids unique to the plant.
Whatever its origins, 4/20 has become a massive holiday for cannabis lovers.
