I am in love with this beautiful HBG inline bong! So easy to clean, and packs a real punch! This is made of thick, high quality glass (I want to say Schott Duran like the other great pieces) – made in America – “CALI CERTIFIED”! I paid less for this piece as I got a deal, but you can find similar inlines of this brand at local headshops or online for probably around $250. I take a few big puffs with this, but must say I love using this mostly with my KO Titanium Domeless nail. Either way, it’s a great piece that is easy to clean and very sturdy and will last you a long time! That is, if you’re not a bong murderer
Here is part one of “The Science and Politics of Marijuana” – part of a series of talks from the MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) 25th Anniversary conference back in 2011. All 7 parts can be found on YouTube through the video below. Videos feature Donald Abrams MD, Lyle Craker PhD, Sue Sisley MD, Martin Lee, Clint Werner, Fred Gardner, Amanda Reiman PhD MSW, Dale Gieringer PhD, Debby Goldsberry, & Steph Sherer and is moderated by Allen Hopper JD (ACLU of Northern California).
The discussions you’ll hear in the videos go into detail on the topic of the science and politics of marijuana – what has been researched and discovered, and how politics is affecting the information from being released or used properly. Over 10 years ago, an important government study was released regarding a few specific patients’ use of marijuana as recommended by their doctors. The Institute of Medicine, a branch of the National Academy of Sciences, issued what was then the most comprehensive analysis of the scientific and medical literature about cannabis, and it stated, “The accumulated data indicate a potential therapeutic value for cannabinoid drugs, particularly for symptoms such as pain relief, control of nausea and vomiting, and appetite stimulation.” A vast number of doctors and other medical professionals continue to caution about harms that may result from smoking marijuana, though these need to be weighed against the other harms that patients could be facing. In the political realm, the debate over the legal status of medical marijuana continues on. The videos run about 339 minutes in total – check them out at your leisure!
Hey, it’s Linda here! I know I have been slow on getting reviews done, mostly as I have been slow in acquiring new pieces. I wanted to at least make a video to say hello and give you all an update as to what’s been going on here lately.
I believe I mentioned the Cannabis Cup but forgot to mention the Medical Cannabis Cup here in the Bay Area in June – if you’re around, you should make plans to attend!
Either way, check out the video and don’t forget to head over to my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/itsweedandbombs) for my most updated posts
I love my Incredibowl i420, and someone recently asked about mine and I realized the old review I did for the Incredibowl i420 was hosted on a site that no longer exists, so I thought I’d share it with you again!
This is one of my very first reviews – as you can see my hair grew a lot and I lost some weight since then
I still absolutely LOVE my Incredibowl – it still packs a punch, still easy to clean and use, and is just.. well, phenomenal! I still use my mini (the m420) as well. Great pipes!

This is an older video from late last year (2012) highlighting the fight that Chris Williams, a medical marijuana grower in Montana, has been battling. At the time this documentary was made, Chris Williams was facing life in prison. As of today, he has been sentenced to 5 years in prison. Part of the atrocity of this case is that a federal judge barred Williams from using his medical marijuana defense.
Marylanders caught with marijuana may soon face a small fine instead of time behind bars.
The Maryland Senate voted in favor of a bill to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana on Tuesday.
On a bipartisan vote of 30-16, the Senate approved legislation that makes possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana a civil offense, subject to the maximum penalty of a $100 fine, according to the Capital Gazette. Laws currently on the books for a such a possession invokes a maximum penalty of $500 and 90 days in prison.
If the bill becomes law, Maryland would join a growing number of states that are enacting more lax marijuana laws, including Colorado and Washington state, where voters chose to legalize marijuana on ballot referendums in 2012.
The sponsor of the bill, State Sen. Robert A. Zirkin (D-Baltimore County), said that the law was needed in order to avoid overspending on charging individuals with possession of small amounts of marijuana.
“It is a tremendous waste of resources,” Zirkin said, according to the Baltimore Sun.
According to State Sen. Allan Kittleman (R-Howard and Carroll), a co-sponsor of the bill, police made around “47,000 arrests” related to marijuana possession in the state last year.

We all agree – marijuana needs to be legalized. Enough is enough! In this video, Oregon Congressman Blumenauer speaks out about why marijuana should be legalized and no longer treated as a dangerous drug.
It’s very clear that the United States Government is not paying attention to the facts about cannabis. Thankfully, we are in the midst of major legislative action in re: to the legalization of marijuana. Hopefully more politicians such as Blumenauer will step forward with logic.
(Sorry for the delay between updates on my page, all!!! I got inundated with heinous work and other things, I’ll try to be better )
I know, it’s been a bit – but I have a special edition double review for you! If I’ve missed any information, please ask and I’ll respond in the comments!
First up is this awesome hand-blown Magic Glass “Mr Orange” bong, sold on GrassCity!!
(Check it out here: http://bit.ly/X6qUp8)
I absolutely love this piece, and I’ve had it for awhile – it’s small, but packs a great punch! Each piece is made by hand, so they may take a little longer to ship. And at only $55, it’s an AWESOME piece!
And second is the ever lovely, totally fantastic KO titanium domeless nail. For those who love to dab, but get annoyed at replacing their dome, or having oil stuck all over the place – get yourself one of these! You can find them in the range of $80-120 or so depending on where you look. I got mine at a local head shop (Legends in Pleasant Hill, CA! Shoutout!), so I’d suggest finding yours anywhere reputable.

What are the implications of Washington and Colorado’s recent legalization of marijuana? Here is a long chunk of C-SPAN coverage thanks to MOXNEWS.com in which the topic is discussed at length.
The main issue we all need to keep in mind is that the Federal government is in charge of criminal laws. The states are in charge of everything else, meaning they have the write to implement medical marijuana legislature if approved by their citizens. Since cannabis is still considered federally illegal – this causes a problem. Unfortunately, the Feds have been tackling is wrong – by attacking programs that are running 100% in compliance under state law. So what do we do?
What are your opinions? What do you think is the best way to carry this out? How do you think the legalization of marijuana will affect the nation?
Hey all! This video showcases a neat little boro glass portable vaporizer called the Vaponic. I got this vaporizer from a company in Spain that designs a few different, interesting vaporizers. It has a patented double air-stream vaporizing system based on heat convection and conduction which provides, cool, strong, and delicious vapor. I forgot to mention in the video that the vapor that came out was actually cool, not hot! This is a great little device for those that like to use a torch or prefer to use glass to vaporize.
