That’s One Pot Tamale – And This California Dispensary Is Giving It Away For Free


You should totally take a hit of this tamale.

That’s what they’re saying at the ABC Cooperative, a medical marijuana dispensary in Garden Grove, Calif., where every Friday is “free tamale day.” At least, that’s what I’m guessing they’re saying. I for one have never stepped foot in a marijuana dispensary and would never ever associate with anyone who would frequent such an abominable institution.

Supposing I did though, I’d imagine the prospect of getting free Pineapple Pot flavored tamales every Friday would be pretty damn exciting.

Made off-site, the tamales were first introduced by the company due to high customer demand and are available only to those with medical marijuana cards – along with the regular, non-medicated Chicken, Cheese and Pork flavors, which I’m assuming are available to anyone.

Did I mention they’re free?

For Future Reference, Denny’s Doesn’t Accept Marijuana as a Form of Payment

It’s pretty fair to assume a healthy amount of folks eating at Denny’s after midnight have consumed a fair amount of alcohol or marijuana, but let us make this clear, it’s not kosher to offer up a bag of pot as a form of payment. Regardless of how awesome it may sound at the time.

The incident in question involves a Niagara Falls man ordering a take-out dinner from a Denny’s restaurant shortly after 2 a.m. Apparently, he tried to pay for his $9.91 worth of food with $1 and a bit of pot.

Once the cashier refused the transaction, the man tried to sell the pot to other customers in the restaurant, according to police. What an entrepreneur!

During the ordeal, an employee at the restaurant recognized the pot peddler and gave his name to police. Authorities reported that he wasn’t home when officers arrived later in the day.

An investigation is continuing — no word on whether the guy got to enjoy his Denny’s meal or not that night.

Marijuana has been proven not to contain any addictive substance, but this crunchy, sweet, salty, treat may be. Blame it on the chocolate and peanut butter! Remember marijuana is a controlled substance, make sure you observe your state’s guidelines. With that said, let’s get get groovy!

Banana Slug Buddies

  • 6 cups of any variety of Chex or Crispex Cereal
  • 1/2 cup banana chips
  • 3/4 cup of semi sweet
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup Canna Butter (recipe as follows)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar


  1. In a large bowl, measure cereal and banana chips. Set aside.
  2. In a large microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate and peanut butter until melted. Check every 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in vanilla and melted or room temperature Canna Butter. Do not microwave Canna Butter!
  4. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal and stir until coated. Place contents in a large Ziplock bag.
  5. Add powdered sugar to the bag and shack vigorously until evenly coated.

Banana Slug’s Fail Proof Canna Butter

  • 1 oz of cannabis medicine (trim, shake, or bud)

  3. Stir until butter is melted and incorporated with your medicine. Cover with a lid, and walk away for 8 hours. (Play video games, go to bed, or do what you do)
  4. After 8 hours, turn off your crockpot and strain your butter mixture through a cheese cloth over a mesh strainer. Make sure to give it a good squeeze!Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 4 months. Recipe can be halved.

3,000 Pounds of Marijuana Hidden in a Shipment of Watermelons

3,000 pounds of marijuana is worth nearly $1.5 million, and last Monday evening, 128 bundles of the cush was discovered in a shipment of watermelons. The produce was being transported by a 44-year-old Mexican man attempting to enter the United States at the Mariposa Commercial Port, only to be subjected to a non-intrusive X-ray of his Volvo truck.

Both the marijuana and tractor-trailer were processed for seizure and the driver was turned over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.

I’ve heard of Vodka-infused watermelon, but bud-infused watermelon? Might have to see how that idea can come to fruition.

Video of the Day: Michael Phelps Can Eat

When the Olympics were in full swing, one of the top stories we had was that Gold Medal Enthusiast Michael Phelps loved to eat…and ate with a passion during his training. With the recent images surfacing of Michael Phelps hitting the marijuana pipe…now we know where that appetite comes from. Seriously though, give the kid a break. It’s not like he got behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while he was under the influence. Oh. Wait.
