Sweet, complete, and wrapped up neat, the treats came quickly through the mail. It may not be “politically correct” to say so, but Lady Green made me fall in love with her lovely, lovely lady buds.
Twelve High Chicks thanks guest contributor John Levy of Pot Valet for this post on ridiculous cannabis myths.
Cannabis enthusiasts hear people utter the most ridiculous words all the time, especially now that science is disputing previous prohibition propaganda. Some cannabis myths are persistent, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary. So bad are these lies, that they prevent the industry from expanding. With legalization come entire populations still new to the idea of using cannabis medically or recreationally.
It took decades to alter public perception about cannabis, to make society believe it a dangerous, addictive, and poverty-stricken drug. So it will take some time for people to adjust to the reality of cannabis as a safe, effective, and healthy herb that is beneficial for human health and happiness. It is likely that weed is the most misunderstood plant in the history of humankind.
Twelve High Chicks thanks guest contributors Talya Hart and Bert Easterbrook for their coverage of the 2017 Cannabis Hemp Conference and Expo.
This year, we as a family unit had the opportunity to attend the third annual Cannabis Hemp Conference and Expo, held at the University of British Columbia (UBC). It was a big change in pace for us from the Global Marijuana March, which we have attended in years past.
Editor’s Note: This article was first published on July 31st, 2015 by CannaCure420. We share it now as a reminder of what community and culture-focused cannabis events should be. The 10th annual Great Canadian Glass Gathering (GCGG 2017) happens July 7-9th, 2017.
Friends kept asking if I’d be attending this year’s Great Canadian Glass Gathering (GCGG 2015). But I didn’t make my decision until two days before, when I bought a cheap tent and air mattress at Canadian Tire and immediately started packing.
Hey there, it’s Lillie, here to rep the fun side of activism: the steps forward in cannabis access that M.O.M.s provide!
The last few years of cannabis in Canada have seen the efforts of activists paying off massively. We’re still waiting for legalization, but the recommendations for it came through on schedule. While they may not be what we end up with, the Liberal government seems to be following through with this campaign promise. That our government would admit the damage prohibition does to society is a huge win for activism.
I am a Canna-Mom. I make this statement proudly, yet we live in a society where many moms who do smoke will choose to do so in silence, not wanting to deal with the judgement and criticism of others. Worse yet they fear that their children will be taken by social services.
I refuse to hide my use of cannabis, despite being judged. I’m here to tell you all the ways it helped me get through pregnancy and the early stages of motherhood.
Let me tell you about it.
From a Mom’s Perspective
I am Canadian mother with my MMPR (Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) prescription for chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, and depression. Like a lot of MMPR patients, I had used marijuana for years to treat my health problems. Eventually, with the help of my doctors, I decided to give medical marijuana a try.
Twelve High Chicks thanks guest contributor Dabs Dillinger for this ganja gaming walk-through, the follow-up to this article.
I am sure most people reading have been on the buying side of a marijuana transaction. But unless you have also been on the other side of the table, been in the cannabis industry, you may be curious how it works. As I mentioned last time, by growing pot in GTA V you can find out.

Game On! Cannabis in GTA V
I really enjoy medicating or getting high while playing video games. I am sure there are many others like me who also enjoy combining them. Well, if you love gaming and weed the way I do, then Grand Theft Auto V is your perfect night in.
Being a medical cannabis patient in Canada can be frustrating these days with all the hassles of accessing cannabis legitimately and safely. Licensed Producers just don’t always cut it. So, with so many grey areas for accessing cannabis as a patient, I decided to try ordering my buds online.
I’m searching for the best Mail Order Marijuana (M.O.M.) company that Canada has to offer. Because I value discretion in a grey market, I won’t name the sites I review. I’m sure you can figure out the recreational M.O.M. sites I tried, though.
Twelve High Chicks welcomes and thanks new contributor Miss J Green for this article.
It isn’t news for cannabis consumers but it might be for mainstream professionals: your colleagues are getting baked. Not at lunchtime in their cars like a bunch of teenagers — they are professionals — but after a long week in the office, the modern professional is turning to cannabis. Executives are toking up on Friday evenings instead of suffering through whiskey hangovers on Saturday mornings. Younger professionals are coming together for BBQs and breaking out the cannabis-infused edibles for dessert.
Twelve High Chicks thanks regular guest contributor Tracy Curley for this timely, firsthand account. We hope she, and all of our friends in Toronto, remain safe while continuing to fight for patients’ rights and access.
Toronto is still in turmoil after the Project Claudia raids on medical marijuana dispensaries. Stakeholders met this past Tuesday, June 7th, to prepare for the raids that are rumoured still to come. Meanwhile Canada waits for legalization of recreational pot to be introduced in the spring of 2017.
