Perhaps then, the last remaining dinos came to calmly accept their fate? We can only speculate at this stage.

Cannabis: like a box of chocolates??

Hate Exercise? Try Cannabis...

Yet more research throwing down the proverbial gauntlet to those perpetuating the ‘lazy stoner’ stereotype. New studies from the University of Colorado show that runners who consumed cannabis before exercising reported increased mood and enjoyment from exercising.

Don't kick the baby...

LinkedIn Kicking Cannabis?

Despite always being a (perhaps the only) canna-friendly social media platform, LinkedIn has of late seemingly been kicking out cannabis-related content. Could this be a trend? The beginning of the end?
