As cowboy chemists amp up the creativity — whipping up an astonishing variety of increasingly high THC-count concentrates like wax, shatter and oils — enterprising personal vaporizer manufacturers have to be nimble to keep up with these rapidly expanding product offerings.
The “O” in O.Pen may as well stand for OMG — it’s god’s gift to personal vaporizing and it’s O.utrageously good. In fact, I’m wracking my brain trying to think of a reason not to own one. What’s not to like about a device you can take to airports, churches, sporting events, concerts, county fairs, PTA meetings, malls, movies, restaurants, bowling alleys and bars and no one’s the wiser after you sneak a quick hit?
Why am I sneaking my impressions of Colorado Amendment 64 into a film review of Lincoln instead of just headlining them “Legalization or Grovelization?” And why are General Spielberg and his Dreamworks cavalry along for the ride?
If you’re after a jammed out, patient-centric, goatherd/Deadhead’s take on cannaculture, Doug Fine’s Too High To Fail is the book for you. I had high hopes that a work tagged “Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution” would be served heavy on the economics. Nope, there’s just a pinch in a goats head soup consisting of outdoor outlaws, Mendocino mindset, Deadhead data, profit-sharing sheriffs, and zesty zeitgeist.
Someone has passed Marketing 101 with flying colors — the kit is offered in Midnight Black, Metallic Silver, or Electric Blue, and that’s just the beginning. You can choose from a luminous assortment of chachkas to personalize it, including reusable skins, leather carrying cases, and rainbow-colored cones.
Approached as a groundbreaking documentary which proves that cannabis cures cancer — the word “if” appears in the title, not the content — What If Cannabis Cured Cancer falls short of the mark. That said, the DVD presents the science behind THC’s potential to treat “modern diseases” in convincing fashion.
Whatever valid points Kevin Booth’s pot doc makes about the ongoing persecution of our most maligned weed are buried under easily the most disjointed direction and editing I’ve seen in a commercial DVD. The entire video seems to suffer from ADHD. Drenched in fundamentalist intensity, you won’t hear much from prohibition proponents. That bias make it difficult to accept the conspiracy theories How Weed Won The West passes off as the unassailable truth.
