Job Security vs. Personal Freedoms: An Analysis of Priorities

Trigger Warning: This article discusses a police raid. I’ve been living my life inside a confirmation bias bubble for a few years now. The bubble has meandered a bit as I educated myself with the help of my hunni, my like-minded online community and Mr. Google. But for the most part, because of my own […]

Claim Your Reclaim & the Wonders of Silicone

Claim Your Reclaim & the Wonders of Silicone

For some of us, there’s nothing quite as exciting as trying your hand at alchemy.  Alchemy is a broad term for mixing elements and compounds to produce something else.  Whenever I use that word, it’s referring to one of my medicinal creations.  One online dictionary defines it as “any magical power or process of transmuting […]

Canada’s Great Cannabis Disconnect: Lisa Kirkman’s Case

Canada’s Great Cannabis Disconnect: Lisa Kirkman’s Case

I live in what I consider to be the best country on this little blue planet.  I feel National pride like it’s a seventh sense.  In 2010, Canada hosted the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia.  I was a sobbing friggin’ mess from the start of the opening ceremonies til the end and beyond.  I’ve […]

Compassion Alchemy: Finding a Balance Between Caring and Suffering

Compassion Alchemy: Finding a Balance Between Caring and Suffering

PHOTO: James Jordan Suffering and compassion: do they go hand-in-hand?  Are they akin to Mother Theresa and the poor, forever together as though stuck in perpetual balance?  Or is that even balance? To me, balance of two opposites cancels them both out.  Makes them neutral, Par, pH 7.   We suffer; and compassion eases it.  Over […]

Are Cannabis Death Stats No Longer Zero?

Are Cannabis Death Stats No Longer Zero?

Photo: Bryan Ochalla Statistics have a tendency of separating us from the magnitude of death. The news today tells us many stories about deaths from all around this little blue planet. But two particular deaths are what this blog post is about. It’s a small number … 2. But the sterility of the statistic hides […]

Chicks Need Rub Too: It’s Normal to Masturbate

Chicks Need Rub Too: It’s Normal to Masturbate

Last week I came across a link about a trend in Colorado called “The Purity Ball”. I was, as I so often am, distracted and I pre-judged based solely on the words of the title. If the journalists of 2014 need to change anything, it’s to use clearer titles for your articles. If you have […]
