Marijuana activists marched from West 31st Street to Union Square Park on Saturday, celebrating cannabis culture and rallying for an end to criminalization. Once at the park, Global Marijuana March founder Dana Beal and former High Times associate publisher Rick Cusick took to the stage and regaled the crowd with stories of how far the movement has come. Since Beal thinks Hillary Clinton will be elected in the fall and not Bernie Sanders, whose posters made an appearance at the event, he urged attendees to make “a movement in the streets” and ensure their progress doesn’t go to pot (in a bad way).
You know The Guy in High Maintenance? Mark is that guy. He knows where you live, and sometimes he hangs out in your living room. He probably sees you more than he does his best friends. You like him — you just don’t really know him. Or his real name. That’s to be expected, though. Because he’s selling you weed.
I was going to go to work… until I got “High Maintenance.”
Smoking weed is oft associated with “chilling” or “hanging out,” however there is a tendency to disregard the norms of social decency when obtaining it. This is likely due to the fact that weed is illegal and cannot be purchased at your local bodega.
There are innumerous ways in which both potheads and casual weed smokers act like total jerks on their quest to get stoned. We consulted with a weed dealer (who will remain anonymous for obvious reasons. We shall call him “Mr. Green”) to find out common weed ordering faux pas and how to rectify them.
The séance was scheduled to start at 7 p.m. and anyone arriving 10 minutes late would be turned away, so I left the office early and headed straight to my friend’s house off the Graham L to smoke a bowl. Or two. Or three.
