Will Washington Cannabis Cafes Ever Be a Reality?

Will Washington Cannabis Cafes Ever Be a Reality?

Washington cannabis cafes should really be a thing. And why they aren’t here already is a question that’s bugged your budtenders at the best Bothell weed shop for a while. Because we have a full selection of legal pot — think weed edibles, shatter wax, topicals, and vaping cartridges — it all has to be smoked in a private residence. Washington cannabis cafes don’t exist, because they aren’t legal. But in Vancouver’s New Amsterdam Café, guests chill out, drink coffee, admire the artwork, and eat the shop’s famous grilled cheese sandwiches — all while smoking bud. Don’t have a pipe? No problem. For $5 you can rent a top-of-the-line vaporizer. And if New Amsterdam isn’t your scene, you have other options. The café is located on Vancouver’s famous “pot block,” where locals and tourists congregate in coffee shops to enjoy the city’s famous green. So what’s wrong with this picture? Recreational marijuana is not yet legal in Vancouver. That’s why Have a Heart Belltown serves so many Canadian tourists. And that brings us to this important questions: Why does Vancouver have better weed tourism options than Seattle, where recreational marijuana actually is legal? Yes, we have pot shops. But Seattle offers few options for visitors who want to legally sample Washington’s legal weed. Since it’s illegal to consume marijuana in public, tourists must make friends with a local or rent a smoking room at a hotel. Can we really call ourselves the Emerald City when visitors must resort to puffing in a smelly room with curtains drawn? That just doesn’t seem very hospitable, now, does it?

Best April Fools Jokes to Play on Your Stoner Friends

Best April Fools Jokes to Play on Your Stoner Friends

Part of the fun of being alive is being surprised. This is what I tell myself before I prank my friends. You know what goes well with April Fool’s? That’s right…marijuana. The best place to go for treats is “Have a Heart in Bothell, your favorite pot shop. Whether you are just gonna hang out or if you want a peace offering to give your friend after you scare the life out of them, our store is stocked to help you find what you want. We know not everyone has the “gift of prank,” so here are a few of our favorite scares. 1.Insect Lamp – If a pal of you isn’t a fan of bugs, this fairly easy prank will get their heart racing. Print out bug shapes in black, then tape them onto the inside of a lampshade. Wait for a shriek (and hopefully NOT a crash) then bring out the bong and share a bowl of the amazing hybrid called “Snoops Dream,” a perfect strain for relaxing and making amends. 2.Balloon Prank Fake Out – Filling an entire room with balloons is a pretty awesome idea, but a LOT of work…and a LOT of balloons are needed…so why not give minimal effort but still instill the same fear in your prank victim? Inflate enough balloons to cover the window and tape them in place. It will give the illusion the whole room is full. 3.Mix Skittles, M&Ms and Reese’s Pieces – So simple, yet so cruel. If you’ve never done it, eating a Skittle and an M&M at the same time is….an acquired taste and also...
