Of Course That’s A Thing: The Scratch & Sniff Book of Weed

If you’ve ever wanted to smell the Devil’s Herb, but were afraid it would ruin your life, now you can buy a scratch and sniff book devoted to the scent of Mary Jane herself without worrying about going to jail forever. Of course, I’m sure that none of our readers have ever seen a Marijuana up close, but let me tell you it’s dangerous stuff.

The book itself contains 20 different scratch and sniff pads and details the history of Marijuana. Other than just being a book that smells like your uncle’s place, it also goes in-depth into the science of getting the munchies and why Marijuana seems to make music more enjoyable. It even describes different strains of the Chronic.

The book can be pre-ordered now for $18 and will release on 11/18. And just in time for the holiday’s, so it’d make a great gift for that cousin that always carries around that Visine, or your friend that always needs five bucks for Taco Bell.

On a High: First Marijuana Vending Machine is Rolled Out

Marijuana Vending Machine

 

Is there anything you can not get from a vending machine these days? The first marijuana vending machine–at least, in Colorado–was recently rolled out on the patio of Montana’s Smokehouse in Avon. It’s different from other pot-dispensing vending machines in the sense that it’s accessible by anyone. For example, marijuana vending machines already exist in California, but they’re often located behind counters so you wouldn’t be able to dispense it yourself.

However, even though access to the machine isn’t limited, access to marijuana is. Only those who are medical marijuana cardholders will be able to dispense the goods, since the machine is equipped with a scanner that verifies the person’s ID first before dispensing anything.

Stephen Shearin, who is the COO of Tranzbyte, explains that he believes the machine will be a lot of help for folks who might feel shy having to buy marijuana, even though they’re doing so legally.

Brazilian Artist Uses Pot to Create Smokin’ Art

Pot Artist

It’s strange, but true. This has got to be the first time that I’ve heard ‘art’ as the reason for why someone would smoke pot, but as they say, there’s always a first for everything.

Brazilian artist Fernando de la Rocque creates surreal-looking pieces of art by taking deep drags out of a joint and then blowing the smoke onto his stencil-covered canvas. It takes a while, but after a couple of puffs, a light brown outline starts to appear. Rocque keeps at it until the image is complete and adequately ‘colored.’ I’m not sure how he’s managing to pull this off, since smoking marijuana is illegal in Brazil.

Regardless, a lot of people happen to like Rocque’s doped-out art as each of the pot-smoke prints sell at about $2,500 each. A couple of Rocque’s work is currently on display at an alternative gallery down in Rio’s Ipanema neighborhood, so drop by and take a whiff take a look at his work if you happen to be in the area.

Hit the jump to check out a couple more of Rocque’s art.

Turtle Hunts Down And Catches Criminal, Eventually.


By Jonathan Kimak

This is part interesting and part adorable. A GPS-fitted box turtle helped uncover a marijuana grow-op in Rock Creek Park, south of Maryland. The turtle was wearing the GPS device for a research project run by park rangers. It’s not sure what sort of research the turtle was performing but my guess is it has something to do with fighting evil ninjas.

The turtle stumbled upon an area filled with marijuana plants. When a park ranger followed the GPS signal to retrieve the hero turtle they found the stash and also determined the culprit was a 19 year-old named Isiah Johnson of Chevy Chase, Maryland. Isiah will be charged and the unamed drug sniffing turtle will go back to the sewers, I mean ranger outpost, to fight crime another day.
