Dear Marley – Should I Smoke Weed When I Have A Cold?

Should I smoke weed when I have a cold? 

I really hope you can help me with this. Should I smoke weed when I have a cold? I’ve been battling this thing for the like, 2 months. It’s so bad that I’ve been told I sound just like Mila Kunis, which would’ve been awesome if I weren’t a 28-year-old man. You know what’s crazy? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a full episode of That ’70s Show, only bits and pieces while channel surfing. Speaking of… who knew Dany Masterton was such a garbage person?!

Anyways, a few days into my cold, I rolled a nice little pinner to smoke before bed. Fifteen minutes in and I was having one of the worst high’s of my life!  My head felt like a pressure cooker and it was hard to breathe. I knew something was off when I didn’t even want a snack. I ALWAYS. WANT. A SNACK. I haven’t lit up since and even though I can live without weed, I miss it. I just wish this cold would go away so I can light up without a worry.

Am I alone here or is what I experienced a thing? Should I smoke marijuana when I have a cold? And Marley, do you happen to know of a good doctor who sees patients over Skype?  

MAN COLD IN THE TREES

Should I smoke weed when I have a cold?

Dear MAN COLD,

Not knowing your full health status, especially relative to your chest and sinuses, I can’t speak directly to your specific case. Also, I’m not a doctor and no, I don’t know of any who see patients over Skype. I highly recommend that you find yourself a qualified ENT doctor, though. By the way, that’s short for ear, nose, and throat, not the fictional little tree characters from The Lord of the Rings.

In terms of the general question; “Should I smoke weed when I have a cold?” the answer is… well, it depends. No two colds are the same so it varies based on severity as well as the individual. And remember, no two strains of marijuana are the same. If you have a stuffy nose, smoking cannabis is a terrible idea. Same applies to a sore throat because smoke is the last thing your throat wants to ingest when it’s already irritated. That’s like drinking a tall glass of milk as you fight the stomach flu.

Hear me out on this – Instead of smoking a joint, may I suggest you consume some edibles? I’m sure you know of or have even tried cookies and brownies, but they can be a bit intimidating and a hassle to make. Luckily for you, 2018 is a wonderful time to be alive when it comes to marijuana. If you’ve never had weed gummies or a THC-infused chocolate bar, both could be really practical alternatives while you’re fighting that cold of yours.   

In spite of logical reasoning, there are people like my late Uncle Pete, who are proof that there is no definitive answer to your question. Not only did he smoke weed when sick with a cold, but he went as far as to brand it “The Cure”. Classic Uncle Pete! Your best bet is to get healthy before you go ahead and plant a kiss on Sweet Mary’s head again. Please consider my edibles recommendation even though it’s not the same. Or you can roll the dice and try a different strain; Uncle Pete would certainly approve.

PS. Season 3, Episode 23 – Canadian Road Trip. If you’re going to watch That ’70s show, that’s where you want to start.

Yours Truly,

Marley

The Internet Reacts to Canada Legalizing Weed

Published

on

It’s official! Prime Minister Trudeau has announced the date recreational cannabis sales will be legal in Canada.

Jah Bless to all our Canadian friends. Yes, cry, sing, cheer, here’s the internet’s reaction to Canada legalizing weed.

A near 100-year prohibition has come to an end as the Prime Minister of the Great White North announced the official date that marijuana will be legal nationwide. That day is October 17th, 2018.

The internet was chalk full of priceless reactions to Canada legalizing weed. First, it started with some genuine attempts to congratulate a nation that had fought hard and long to see this day through. Ex-Youtube star and pro-gamer xCodex made his piece.

And activist Dana Larsen chimed in with a notion that although this is a huge first step, there’s also a ton of work to do before those who use cannabis are truly free under the law.

Then the hilarity ensued. The jokes seemed to surround the little-beef President Trump had started with the insulting tariffs on Canada.

A Stash Story: Checkmate

Most cannabis enthusiasts have a special container in their life. It’s a container that holds many things very near and dear to their heart. Papers, grinders, filters and more, a stoner’s stash box can tell you a lot about the owner. Is it big? Small? Dirty? Clean? Organized? Or messy? What about the story behind it?

In a Stash Story, we try to reveal the personal touches to choosing a place to store your herb. Your stash box could be a gift, a discovery, or an epiphany. But we want to see it!

A Stash Story: Checkmate

“Fresh out of school with a diploma in hand (makes for an excellent rolling tray, btw), I decided it was time to shift from my college habits and start smoking weed like a gentleman. It was hard to get rid of the IPhone 3G box that served me so well over those 4 years, but at the end of the day, I forced myself to toss it in the recycling bin and start fresh. Knowing what I had on its way made it slightly easier. 

I ordered my new stash box online and it arrived within a week. This may seem dramatic, but my new stash box is majestic. It really is. Like, checkmate, other stash boxes. I know it’s not a competition and I’m mostly kidding, but take a look at this thing. I believe it’s meant for cigars but turns out it works perfectly to stash my weed. There’s ample room for my bud, lighters, grinder and any and all additional tools I need to roll the perfect joint.

When my parents visited my new apartment a few months ago, dad questioned my newfound love for chess. Before I had the chance to respond, my mom reminded him (and me) that I was absolutely fascinated with the game of as a grade 1 student and how wonderful it is that I’m getting back into it. A part of me wanted to open it up and be like “THIS IS WHAT IT IS. IT’S FOR MY MARIJUANAS” but I thought better of it and defused the situation by asking my dad if 6 pawns equal 1 queen. He rolled his eyes and moved on to the next room.

So uh, ya. This is my premium stash box. It’s great.”
