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!


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?

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:

Ridin’ High

With legal recreational marijuana use in Colorado and Washington, legal medical marijuana use in 23 states, and November elections around the corner, states have started to think about how to handle “high driving” as well as drunk driving.

We all have that friend who says they drive better when they’re stoned, right? Because they’re more focused and careful. At the end of the day, though, studies have shown high driving to be less dangerous than drunk driving, but still more dangerous than driving sober. Why is that? Primarily because drunk drivers overestimate their skills and stoned drivers do the opposite. The biggest danger of high driving is not being able to react quickly enough to unexpected situations.

The Oregonian recently published a piece revealing how their state authorities are being trained to deal with stoned drivers. Here are the basics:

Emmy HIGHlights 2014!

See what we did there? HIGHlights? Yeah…

For those of you who don’t eagerly watch every award show that airs, let us give you a small recap of the pot jokes from the Emmys Sunday night. We’ll be honest, we didn’t watch the Emmys, but we read Fox News coverage of it. You know, because if marijuana is mentioned they will be ALL OVER IT.

We get the impression Sarah Silverman stole the pot show, with her vaporizer pen (“this is my liquid pot!”) and spazzy acceptance speech (although come on, she’s a comedienne, what did you expect?). She ended with, “We’re all molecules, and we’re hurling through space right now.” We love it, and so does Neil DeGrasse Tyson, we’re pretty sure. She also insisted to TMZ, in response to, “Some people think you were high at the Emmys,” that she is a GROWN WOMAN and would be waiting until afterwards to partake.

Whatever, more...

Degenerate Art

Glassblowing is art. We believe in this and support it 100% – it’s why we do what we do, and we feel pretty lucky to be surrounded by these beautiful pieces and talented artists every day. That’s why we love Degenerate Art, a documentary about the history and culture of glass pipe-making and was featured at the 2012 SXSW film festival. Degenerate Art is currently streaming on Netflix instant – watch it, suckas!

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...
