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:

A fantastic article recently published by Mint Press News addresses cannabis science vs. politics, starting with the question all pot smokers secretly ask themselves, “Is this better for my lungs than cigarettes?”

According the the article, researchers used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys and found that adults between the ages of 18 and 59 who smoke one joint per day had the same lung function as someone who didn’t partake in the plant.

We know that some regular joint smokers report bronchial symptoms from rolling papers that folks who use vaporizers don’t experience as much. But what does that say about cannabis, or about marijuana smoke, or about rolling papers?

We’ve been told marijuana more...

Where’s the Weed in Obama’s State of the Union?

Pro-marijuana advocates are a little disappointed after President Obama’s State of the Union address last night. Many cannabis blogs have pointed out the glaring lack of comment about legalization, especially in light of the growing public dialogue about the failing “War on Drugs.”

Business Insider writer Anthony Weiner points out that this point of our President’s tenure marks the point at which he should start “securing his legacy.” For instance, he’s taken action on immigration, improved America’s relationship with Cuba, and announced a huge community college plan.

Typically when we see a topic taking up as much air time in the media as marijuana is, executive action follows. Weiner made some common sense suggestions to President Obama that we thought we’d share with y’all: more...

When to Not Use Craigslist

In case you need a laugh this Monday, folks are now using Craigslist to sell “dank 420 kush.” In fact, that was the subject of a Craigslist ad out of El Paso this month, complete with photos, prices and a phone number. THIS IS EL PASO, DUDE. You can’t sell weed on Craiglist. This 24-year old man was arrested and posted an $18,000 bond to be released the next day.

Okay, but when you live in Denver, California, Seattle, Portland or any other Craigslist where the state has legal recreational or medical marijuana, you can find some legitimate sources on the website. But be careful. You want to make sure these ads sound like they’re written by a real person and include a real telephone number, and always meet in a public, well-lit, safe place.

People are freaks, y’all.

Another great toker use for Craigslist in legal areas – you can find gear, soil, seeds, warehouses, more...

A Hazy Adventure with Paul Thomas Anderson

There’s another Oscar contender we forgot to mention yesterday! And it’s even MORE toker-friendly than all the others combined!! But definitely for different reasons than our other picks, Interstellar and Neighbors.

Badass director of Boogie Nights (Paul Thomas Anderson, in case you don’t obsessively memorize film trivia) released Inherent Vice this year – a film in which the main character Doc Sportello, played by Joaquin Phoenix, smokes weed constantly. And also investigates his ex-girlfriend’s disappearance.

Sure, Sportello being a dope fiend is ha-ha funny and all, and according to the Daily Beast marijuana makes more appearances than the supporting cast members, but we’re more interested in the screening hosted by the Alamo Drafthouse theater in Denver.

The Alamo promoted this screening as a “Hazy Adventure,” with more...
