Are you of legal age to consume cannabis related news?


They lived through The Great Depression and World War II. They raised the Baby Boomers. They were The Greatest Generation.

And they had just the worst weed.

Truly God-awful, garbage weed.

So many stems, all dry and flaky. It was really bad.

Maybe that’s why the great depression happened? Is that why they went to war? People like to hate on older generations, but based on the caliber of their cannabis, I’d say those people in the 20s had a pretty good reason to be unhappy and bitter.

And the method of smoking? They all had these splintery pipes, unfinished, probably termite damaged. They used those long, curly, fancy pipes you only see rich dudes with monocles using. You can’t smoke weed out of one of those, no wonder they were greatly depressed. The wood, the shape, all of it is counterproductive to a good high.

They were just starting to figure out how to cultivate and consume cannabis at the time, so it makes sense it would be awful. So, where did they even grow that awful weed? Chicago. That’s right, the research points to the windy, cold, urban area of Chicago. You think an above-ground subway system is conducive to weed?

It would appear weed was awful for several more years, somewhat pointing to the Boomer generation as the innovators of cannabis product. Do we all owe Boomers for figuring out weed?

Maybe we should all apologize to the Boomers.
