Hey guys, I’m back with another fantastic GlassCity rig here. This is their stemless dual-level diffuser plate to turbine disc vapor tube. Out of the four I have tried out (the other two reviews coming along shortly!), this one is my favorite! There’s just something about how the turbine disc spins the smoke, it almost sounds like a chopper – and the hits pull nice and perfectly.
This piece is a great scientific glass vapor tube with multi-level percs, made from high quality borosilicate glass with a reinforced stemless design. The tube comes with an 18.8mm female joint top-load vapor dome and a nice big Pyrex glass concentrate nail. It stands a little under 12″ tall and kinda feels like a wine bottle Trust me, you will love this if you get a chance to try it!. Check out all the fancy details here: http://bit.ly/16tDFim
Whoa, nelly. I have been using my domeless nail in my other water pipes, but never really had a chance to try them in a “big rig”. I was lucky enough to get my hands on four awesome new rigs made by GlassCity – and the piece I’m reviewing here is the GlassCity Stemless Diffuser Plate to Turbine Disc Vapor Tube with Splash Guard.
Phew, that’s a mouthful. Anyway, this is one fantastic, decently priced vapor tube that I think a lot of you will like as much as I do. I am sure I did not get some things right re: the percs and diffuser, but I believe the item description describes it far better than I could: “This slender, stemless vapor tube from GlassCity features two levels of percs near the base: a diffuser plate with 6 holes and turbine disc with 5 blades. Together they work to create a roaring, swirling mass of smoke-cooling bubbles for a silky smooth toke!”
Smooth, indeed. Check out the nice cloud action later in the vid. For all the specs, check it out here: http://bit.ly/1a0veKx
Dr. Sanjay Gupta reacts to the Justice Department’s announcement that it won’t block laws that have legalized marijuana in states like Washington and Colorado. The primary concern is that the US Government has failed to speak upon rescheduling cannabis or changing laws to allow for easier access to begin studies, as well as provide safe access for patients.

Here it is, finally – my review for the Epic Vape E-Nano vaporizer!! This thing is amazing and ridiculously efficient, encased in beautiful hard wood, made in the USA, with a solid ceramic heating element. The Epic Vape heats up super fast and provides excellent clouds with no smell. I’m in love with this fantastic, simple piece… and no, I’m not smooching butts here, I really do think this is an excellent vape. As I mention in the video, I got to spend some time demonstrating these at the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in SF a few months ago, and this can also vape concentrates very well!

As I’m sure a lot of you know by now, this past week, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta surprisingly made an about-face on his stance on cannabis, specifically using it for medicinal purposes. CNN aired a fantastic documentary on Sunday in which Dr. Gupta meets with various patients around the country who have used cannabis to treat their ailments, most of which showing that cannabis is truly the only thing that helps. It’s a fantastic episode and well worth the watch. For more information, also check out this great article on CNN about the headlines this documentary has made this week – let’s keep this conversation going!
Here’s my video review for the Wickie Pipe Lighter! This is another old video that I couldn’t seem to find on my page, so I thought I’d upload it here. A lot of you loved this piece, and with great reason – it’s awesome!
With this, you have everything in one piece – a pipe, a built-in lighter, and a stash spot. This is the perfect portable pipe and at a price that’s nice to your wallet.
You can find the Wickie Pipe online at http://www.wickiepipe.com
From the website:
“Wickie Pipe Lighter offers a flip up acrylic mouth piece that opens up to a 90 degree angle, and the tobacco bowl found at the opposite end. The metal-flap bowl cover properly secures the tobacco when finished smoking and prevents unwanted spills. The secret tobacco compartment can be found underneath the acrylic mouth piece attached to the body for storing extra tobacco. Clean and maintain your Wickie Pipe Lighter with ease. Simply remove the screw that attaches the pipe portion to the lighter, pull the mouthpiece off the bowl and drop it in your favorite cleaner. Refill Wickie Pipe Lighter with regular butane gas, adjust the flame control to desired level and enjoy your day.”
Here is an older review I did for the Fumo Pipe after realizing it wasn’ t online anywhere! This the the Fumo Pipe! Unbreakable, made of Billet aluminum and polycarbonate – not only safe to smoke from, but enjoyable too due to the cooled smoke and greater control over smoke intake. Can also be used as a vaporizer with any of the “herb irons” out there, making it even better!
You can find the Fumo Pipe online at many different retailers including WickiePipe and GrassCity. A lot of people would say it’s very similar to the Incredibowl m420 in size and function.
Here is a video from Reason.TV showcasing Rabbi Jeffrey Kahn of Washington, DC’s struggle to keep his dispensary open in the face of being harassed by the federal government. (thanks for the video post!): —-
“”[The federal government] should know who is a pot dealer and who is not. For them to pretend otherwise is ridiculous,” says Rabbi Jeffrey Kahn. Kahn, an ordained rabbi who has served congregations for over 30 years, is opening a medical marijuana dispensary in Washington, D.C. this summer alongside his wife. Kahn says the federal government has made it impossible for him to get a bank account for his small business.
Medical marijuana is legal in D.C. and 18 states, but it’s still illegal under federal law. This means that even though Kahn is abiding by D.C. law, banks won’t work with his business for fear of losing FDIC protection–or worse. Kahn says he has not been able to open a bank account with any financial institution. If he is forced to be a cash-only business, he will be more vulnerable to crime and IRS auditing.

Residents of Delaware voted to pass medical marijuana legislation and it was signed into law in 2011. The problem is, 2 years later, there are still no dispensaries or any access to medical marijuana for patients. This is a heinous oversight as patients are left having to resort to illegal methods to obtain their medicine.
This is similar to situations in other medical marijuana states, namely New Jersey. In 2010, former governor Corzine signed NJ’s medical marijuana law before Governor Christie took office. It is now 2013 and there have only been a total of TWO permits issued to dispensaries in the entire state of NJ. Clearly, these states need to stop trying to ignore the laws we citizens voted to put into place!
I thought I’d do something a little different and just speak on some issues regarding cannabis. Warning, I am totally rambling!
The first issue is re: Fairness in re: to access to meds and how cannabis is portrayed. A lot of patients have issues dealing with money-grubbing cannabis dispensaries, as well as fraudulent review sites that mislead patients into purchasing from some of these sketchy dispensaries, when they otherwise wouldn’t. I then go into a more specific issue of balance of usage and make a note that cannabis, although we love it, does have some negative side effects if you “over use” it. I support cannabis wholeheartedly, but I also realize that there are some negatives that really need to be explained and discussed. I touch on a few things that I haven’t really heard any other activists talk about. Tell me what you think!
