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:

40 Years of Inhaling Deeply

We congratulated High Times on their 40th anniversary just a little while ago, and now we’re happy to have the occasion to congratulate them again – this time, on the publication of a new coffee table book in honor of this anniversary. “High Times: A 40-Year History of the World’s Most Infamous Magazine” is, as the New York Times says, “a coffee table book for low, sticky coffee tables.” We can get behind that.

While we try to keep up with the happenings of High Times’ magazine, which exploded in the 1970s and 80s with its centerfolds featuring sexy photographs of bud, this book promises to provide a wealth of interesting stories. Even the New York Times book review contains some great little factoids – for instance, did you know that in 2004, High Times tried to nix its marijuana coverage and become a strictly literary magazine? Not really sure why they more...

Texans for Legislation!

This past weekend, Texans braved the Ebola threat (haha…too soon?) to participate in the 2014 Dallas Marijuana March at Dallas City Hall. If you missed the event, make sure you check out the Facebook page for photos, videos, and lots of positive hype! We love reading comments and posts from the folks who made it out. For instance, Tara Cowan posted tons of great photos and shared that even though she doesn’t partake, she supports everyone’s right to “choose cannabis over any man made, mainstream, controlled pharmaceutical drug.”

If you did participate in the Marijuana March this Saturday, you heard from a ton of fantastic speakers, including:

  • Shaun McAlister, Executive Director of DFW NORML

  • Alexis Bortell, the 9-year old daughter of a disabled veteran and software engineer, more...

Siberian Pothead Princesses

Here’s your WTF moment for the day:

It appears that a Siberian ice princess who was mummified 2,500 years ago had contracted breast cancer at about the age of 20 and used cannabis both to alleviate her symptoms and elevate her mind.

Did you get all that? Yeah. The Siberian Ice Maiden, also called the “Altay Princess” after the location of her burial site, was unearthed in eastern Russia in 1993. She was dressed like a princess, had beautifully intricate tattoos, and was clearly buried with respect and reverence…and with a container of cannabis.

In the Siberian Times, a scientist from the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography notes that sniffing cannabis was probably a forced necessity for this woman. “She was often in an altered state of mind,” he says. “We can suggest that through her could speak the ancestral spirits and gods. Her ecstatic visions more...


Help educate others on the truth about cannabis, and learn more in the process! Elections are around the corner, and it’s important to become educated voters and help others do the same. Our suggestion is that you share this podcast with the cannabis antagonists in your lives. Maybe it will help foster intelligent discussion and prevent you from running around in circles!

We learned a lot from this March 2010 talk given by Claudia Little at the Ashland Alternative Health Clinic in Ashland, Oregon. Claudia is a registered nurse with an advanced degree in Public Health, as well as a marijuana activist. She cites many statements, research reports and advocacy efforts that have fallen on deaf ears.

For instance, did you know:

  • Cannabinoids exist in the human body as receptors, which is why smoking marijuana provides health benefits and symptom relief to humans, more...
