L.A. potheads, you dodged a big bullet this month, and hopefully you learned a lesson from it. With the looming specter of a total dispensary ban in Los Angeles coming down to the wire, "patients" of the medicinal system came damn close to losing their medicine. While you didn't quite go over the edge this time around, maybe you've gained a newfound appreciation for the wacky world of weed that makes California so wonderfully unique. Let's test that theory with a brand new WeedDown, our monthly (whenever we remember to do it) breakdown of the strangest, funniest, and most important marijuana related news from L.A. and beyond.

As anyone who's lived in L.A. for any amount of time can tell you, between traffic, pollution and snooty restaurants that withhold shrimp on you, this town can stress you out. Luckily, as anyone who's lived in L.A. for any amount of time can also tell you, this town has a pretty fail-safe way of dealing with stress. Join us as we break down the good, bad and ugly of weed news emerging from our borders this month, including the ongoing fight in L.A. City Council to close our beloved dispensaries, Oliver Stone's theory on why California has the best weed in the world, and, of course, a special appearance by Snoop Dogg. It's The WeedDown! More»
It must be hard to be Wiz Khalifa. Don't get me wrong, I'd trade places (if not wives) with you in a heartbeat, but people often make the mistake of confusing a good life with an easy life. Not me, Wiz. I realize how hard it is to grind out show after show over a long, hot summer, how nervous you must be having to share a stage every night with Snoop Dogg, the original and greatest weed rapper of all time, and what courage it takes to roll up blunt after blunt, even knowing that 5-0 is eternally waiting to harsh your buzz. That's why I salute you, Wiz, for putting aside your latest legal hassle, hitting the stage in West Palm Beach last night alongside Tha Doggfather, and putting on a hell of a show at Sunfest 2012. If these photos are any indication, you haven't missed a step. More»
Happy 4/20, everyone! No, we're not talking about Hitler's birthday, or even the creation of Wisconsin; today's the day that stoners everywhere do what they'd probably be doing anyway– smoke weed all day. Here in L.A., where it's probably more acceptable in certain social circles to light up a gigantic, Purple-Haze-filled blunt than to, say, talk about your support of Mitt Romney, you could see April 20th as just another day. But where's the fun in that? In that spirit, we present a special 4/20 edition of The WeedDown, our monthly feature collecting the latest stories, news and humorous items related to the sticky icky icky. More»
Hola, amigos! Hopefully you're getting through the week without too much stress, but let's be honest, working for a living (if you are, in fact, among those in this town who do so) is stressful. It's the kind of thing that can really make the old glaucoma/sleep apnea/chronic back pain/migraines act up, and there's only one cure for that, as prescribed by the doctor you met on the third-floor of a Venice Beach walk-up off the boardwalk. But before you indulge your quasi-legal right to burn one down, educate yourself about the latest ganja news and happenings in L.A. weed culture with The WeedDown, our new monthly feature collecting the latest stories, news and humorous items related to your second-favorite extracurricular activity.

By now you've probably heard that Demi Moore's recent hospitalization was due to an alleged overindulgence of the nitrous oxide used to pressurize whipped cream cans, or "whip-its." Now before we get all high and mighty on Demi as if we've never had to throw away half a can of completely flat Reddi Whip, I think we should take a moment to place this admittedly embarrassing overdose in the proper context. No, this is not the first time a Hollywood star has been busted, gone into rehab, or been photographed indulging in a drug that could be considered less than classy, but in this economy, who could blame them? Let's see where Demi's little incident falls on the list of bizarre celebrity stoner moments. More»
Happy holidaze, everyone! Today we come together in honor of a grand tradition that may help relieve your post-Coachella blues (sidenote: we are feeling it hard over here. People in the office have been spontaneously breaking out into tears, weeping. It's pathetic.). Thankfully, today gives everyone an excuse to ease our minds and eat an inordinate amount of raw cookie dough, so turn up the Velvet Underground and/or Jimi Hendrix Blues album (track 2!) and just say "yo world, 'scuse me while I kiss the sky."
