Thanks for a Successful Weekend! Featuring: Dan P. Glass Best MJ of 2014! Featuring Local Artist Shahla Yma One for the History Books!
Thanks for a Successful Weekend!

Many thanks to everyone who came out for the grand opening of our third Glass House location this Saturday! (And, of course, to everyone who helped us celebrate Sean’s birthday in style!) Check out our Facebook page for photos of the shop, the winners of some AMAZING raffle prizes, and an epic glass-blowing

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!


Featuring Local Artist Shahla Yma

Interested in checking out homegrown art from right here in Dallas Fort-Worth? Look no further than right here at The Glass House. We’re currently featuring artist Shahla Yma, and you’ll know immediately which paintings and prints are hers by their bold, vibrant colors and pop culture references. Shahla’s artistic focus

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?

Toke of the Town:

Science Doesn’t Lie.

Have you ever noticed that marijuana legalization debates among the general public typically involve very little research and a lot of rhetoric taken from media reports? And, have you ever noticed that in general, in life, the media doesn’t feel the need to be on the same page as science? BECAUSE SCIENCE IS LIES. That’s why evolution’s not real, obviously. Silly scientists.

Education is SO important when it comes to talking about legalization, especially because the stigma surrounding marijuana gets in the way of the truth. And the truth is that people are suffering in the world who don’t have to be – they are suffering because the drug that can ease their pain, soothe their anxiety and fight their illness isn’t legal. And the uglier truth is that it’s illegal for a whole lot of terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad reasons.

Another Thing on Netflix You Need to Watch

Another thing on Netflix you need to watch?…okay, but seriously. When it comes to America’s War on Drugs, Netflix doesn’t disappoint. Every time it cycles through another round of new films, look for new documentaries aimed at educating audiences about what’s going on in the cannabis industry politically, economically and culturally.

This time, we discovered Neurons to Nirvana, a 2013 documentary funded by Kickstarter that looks at the current body of research surrounding psychedelic drugs. Similar to cannabis, psychedelics like LSD and magic mushrooms get a bad rap – and who really knows why?

Apparently, though, when you peel away the layers of bullshit and propaganda surrounding psychedelics as well as marijuana, what emerges is actually a powerful alternative to pharmaceuticals. If you’re looking for a film to more...

Kathy Bates Loves the Buddha

We assume most of our customers don’t actually watch Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, so we thought we better share this little tidbit with ya. In a special American Horror Story episode of the show, Cohen asked Kathy Bates who the bigger pothead is – Matthew McConaughey or Susan Sarandon.

(Sidenote: If we had to guess, we’d put our money on Susan Sarandon. Sarandon has told Cohen in past episodes that she attends pretty much every awards show stoned, except the Oscars. McConaughey hasn’t smoked since he got arrested in the late 90’s! Okay, we don’t really know that, but still.)

Bates put her money on Sarandon, too. She said, “I actually shared some dope with [her] last June. It was with Melissa McCarthy, we were shooting Tammy and I was staying at Susan’s house…she had some good shit!” more...

The NYPD Hates You

Recently New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton announced that beginning November 19th, possession of 25 grams or less of marijuana will no longer be an arrestable offense. Low-level marijuana possession has been a huge problem for the NYPD, and has tons of racist undertones as well – about 80% of these arrests have been black or Latino. Not cool. Now, with the new policy, anyone caught with a small amount of cannabis will be issued a summons and a ticket for $100. However, anyone caught actually smoking/burning it will still be subject to arrest.

This sounds great, right? Right. But the NYPD isn’t super excited about the policy change. In fact, they’re now planning a “work slowdown” to protest it. High Times notes that in the past, they’ve asked New York City police officers about the numerous drug arrests made, and they always answer that they’re more...
