NYC weed delivery services see huge spike in business in Hurricane Sandy aftermath


In the after effects of Hurricane Sandy, pot dealers throughout NYC, especially Brooklyn, are reporting huge spikes in sales. Apparently, when public transportation is down, electricity is off, and the cops have much better things to do, people in dark apartments who have nothing to do tend to want to get high. Who would have thought?


“I did 34 calls today,” said a salesperson from a popular weed delivery service — who we’ll call Sam — to ANIMAL last night in Bushwick. “That might be a record.” The herbal courier attributed the uptick in business to a daily exodus of pot-seeking Manhattanites.


With power still out in neighborhoods like the East Village and Lower East Side and absolutely no outages right across the river in Williamsburg and Bushwick, Brooklyn has become an important staging area.”A lot of people from Manhattan are going to their friends’ apartments in Brooklyn to buy their weed. We’re almost sold out.”


“You should probably stock up,” said Sam, as he displayed the “medium” (5.2 grams for $120) and “large” (7 grams for $200) glass jars with names like “Sister Chem” and “OG Kush.” Note: These are normal prices for this particular service and since weed delivery services engage in price gouging as a matter of routine business, they didn’t tack on any storm-related costs.


While shuffling through the various strains for the four or so minutes that the transaction took place, his phone rang two times from two different customers.


“This is crazy,” he while shuffling out the door to make another delivery. “I’ve never seen it like this.”

Connecticut is the latest state to legalize medical marijuana

A couple days ago, the CT legislature made the tiny state the seventeenth state to legalize the use of marijuana for medical reasons. Unlike California, which now has weed dispensaries on every corner, Connecticut weed will be a bit more tightly regulated.

Under the bill, patients and their caregivers must register with the Department of Consumer Protection. In addition, their doctors must certify that there is a medical need for marijuana to be dispensed, like in the case of debilitating diseases like cancer, glaucoma, AIDS, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis or epilepsy.

On the surface, this law sounds strict, but we’ll see how long until the chillest doctors find a way around it. In other states, marijuana is prescribed for anxiety, depression, and insomnia, among other conditions.

Does smoking weed help win football games? For the Oregon Ducks it does.

For the football team of the University of Oregon in Eugene, pot is just part of the culture and it’s something many players credit to the team’s success. Oh yeah, well that’s Oregon, right? There is a hell of a lot of weed in Eugene, but it’s not just Oregon. More often around the country, student athletes are claiming that getting high before a game helps them concentrate on their performance.

The Ducks are savoring their win over Wisconsin, Oregon’s first victory in a Rose Bowl since 1917 and Chip Kelly’s first postseason triumph as head coach. Earlier today, the school buzzed as the team made its victory lap around campus. Now, as one Duck relishes another kind of high, he wants to make something clear. “It’s not just us,” he says, taking another hit. “If you think Oregon’s the only team smoking weed, you’re crazy.”

How much weed would it take to kill you?

Drugs like cocaine, crack and heroin can be lethal even at moderate doses, depending on your body chemistry and health. But what about weed? How much weed would you have to smoke to overdose and die? Way more than you could ever possibly intake.

From a study done in 1988 by the US Department of Justice and the DEA:

“In layman terms this means that in order to induce death, a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.”

So if somehow, you can smoke 15000 pounds of weed in fifteen minutes, you’d overdose. Otherwise, you’re fine.
