Featuring: Dan P. Glass Best MJ of 2014! Featuring Local Artist Shahla Yma One for the History Books! WTF is a Nasal Ranger
Featuring: Dan P. Glass

One of the best things about working at The Glass House? The culture and community (including you, our customers!). We’re surrounded by awesome people right here in the Dallas Fort-Worth area, but we’re also connected to a larger community of artists and advocates. Nothing beats it!

Today we want to give a shout-out to Dan P. Glass, a Michigan artist who has received international recognition

Best MJ of 2014!

Over the weekend, lots of folks celebrated 4/20 at the 2014 High Times Denver Cannabis Cup. This was an exciting year for Denver and for High Times – it’s the first year High Times had the opportunity to host their event in a state where recreational marijuana use is actually legal. They go balls to the wall in Amsterdam. Now they get to do it in Denver too!

One for the History Books!

January 1, 2014 has come and gone. Over a dozen marijuana stores opened in Colorado on New Year’s Day, licensed by the state to sell up to an ounce for recreational use. Washington is reviewing over 300 applications for state licenses for marijuana stores expected to begin opening in the spring.

So, how were the first two and a half days of legalized recreational marijuana?

WTF is a Nasal Ranger

When Colorado legalized recreational marijuana use, they forgot about one thing: that bud is dank, bro! The sweet, sweet smell of cannabis now wafting through the streets of quiet Colorado neighborhoods apparently doesn’t appeal to everyone. The solution? A not-so-little device called – get this – the NASAL RANGER. Sick.

Denver, Colorado literally has an odor ordinance,

Toke of the Town:

Sales and Synthetics!

You guys, skip the synthetic marijuana (or spice, or K2, or whatever you want to call it). Seriously. You might remember that back in May, Texas saw a rash of overdoses from K2, a form of synthetic marijuana that may have been mixed with a little PCP. Just last week, New Hampshire actually issued a public health emergency due to a string of overdoses on a different brand of synthetic marijuana called “Smacked!” Exclamation point included.

So what’s the difference between the media’s definition of a “pot overdose” and “spice overdose”? To start, no one has actually died of a marijuana overdose. The pot overdoses we’ve heard about in the news typically describe the intense high that comes from taking in more than the suggested dose of an edible – it doesn’t hurt anyone, it just feels uncomfortable. We can’t say the same for spice. The biggest problem with synthetics more...

Kids and Cannabis

Now that “legalization” has transformed from a buzzword into growing reality, America is starting to think about the kids. Oh, crap. The kids.

Well, that’s not entirely true. “Think of the children!” is still a popular argument against marijuana legalization. Legalizing the drug will in turn make it more accessible, to a degree. But we’ve dealt with the same issue in regards to alcohol, so it’s easily rebuffed.

So, America HAS thought of the kids. Maybe what they forgot, more specifically, is that kids don’t like being lied to, and we’ve been telling them about the danger of marijuana use for a very, very long time. It’s probably confusing for them now that we’ve changed our minds.

Well…now what? Drug educators see the problem, and are changing the conversation.

Let’s have a quiz. Of the two examples, which is a more ethical and more...

Back to School Glass Sales!!

It seems like just yesterday that we were chanting “School’s out for summer!” with Alice Cooper, but “no more teachers, no more books” can’t last forever. Here we are, approaching the end of August once again.

Whether you’re a parent itching to get your bored kids back out of the house, a college student getting ready to spend all of your money on books, or someone who literally has no ties to academia anymore, we have back-to-school sales JUST for you!

This coming weekend – Friday, August 22 through Sunday, August 24 – we’re giving you some sweet deals to help you excel in HIGHER education. And, since you’ll be out and about back-to-school shopping for your academic needs anyway, don’t forget about the importance of your extracurricular activities! Better yet, come by before your back-to-school shopping for a more relaxed experience…

More Texas Drug Busts

Texans have been all over the news recently with marijuana busts…just last night, a car hit a state trooper and bailed towards Rio Grande. Later, the car was found abandoned with more than 300 pounds of cannabis worth about $100,000. The trooper is okay – has been treated and released from a hospital – but the driver hasn’t been found yet.

Yet another bust took place in Central Texas this week, near Navasota. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office found almost 3,500 plants ranging from two to eight feet tall on a 50-acre property. The discovery was made after a neighbor reported the operation to authorities. Again, like similar operations recently found in Chambers County and in Polk County, it’s believed that the growers were living either on the property or nearby in the woods. Goodbye, $1.7 million worth of marijuana.

And of course we’ll have to wait more...
