The Good, The Bad, And The Drugly: Tech's Green Scene, 4/20/16

If you happen to partake in a certain combustible, leafy green type of relaxing refreshment, today is known as the default holiday in which it is particularly celebrated (as opposed to how some use it during all the other major holidays...or days...)  Here's a look at some of the better e-ideas surrounding cannabis culture, and one that's only half-baked...

A very different type of "green" technology will be discussed today.

We'll start with the good stuff.  The technology surrounding cannabis consumption has come a long way from manual joint-rolling machines.  One of the standout products currently on the market for marijuana enthusiasts is the Pax 2 vaporizer.  These vaporizers are a type of smoking device that use medical-grade heating compartments ("the oven") to heat the plant matter just enough to release the precious THC compounds into your lungs (but not cause an excess of combustion - meaning no lighters are required, and no smoke is emitted.)


And it's good for more hits than Muhammad Ali.

The Pax 2 is the sports car of smoking (well, technically, vaping.)  Four heat settings allow for precise control of the "oven-loads", meaning you can choose how heavy your hit is before your lips even hit the mouthpiece.  When your lungs have had their fill, sensors use motion-control technology to deduce when you've set the piece down to go get pizza or listen to "Dark Side Of The Moon" or whatever, and will conserve battery life.  The lithium-ion batteries can be charged via a magnetic USB port, and one-touch operation enables effortless ecstasy.  The Pax 2's sleek design is embedded with an LED that indicates readiness - purple for pre-heatings, green for get hiiiiiiiigh.

Don't worry, you don't need to eviscerate it to load a bowl.

But where are you going to keep you stash in between your futuristic festivities?  There's a discreet way to keep your trees close at hand...literally.  This real, working optical computer mouse features a secret stash compartment, and even a miniature digital scale!  Hey, at least it's the last place your scavenger roommate (or the cops) will search...AND you'll never have to worry about forgetting where you hid things when you were high.

This is some new-wave ninja shit right here.

However, not every high idea (highdea?) is a good one, as evidenced by today's fray from Snapchat.  The photo-sharing app made another of its signature filters available today, however things took an unfortunate dark turn.  The filter, which made users appear to look like the reggae music legend Bob Marley, was quickly decried for its apparent usage of the "blackface" stereotype.

There is such a thing as "too high", and this is what it creates.
(Image courtesy twitter.com.)

Snapchat had made the following statement in an attempt to reconcile things:  
“The lens we launched today was created in partnership with the Bob Marley Estate, and gives people a new way to share their appreciation for Bob Marley and his music. Millions of Snapchatters have enjoyed Bob Marley’s music, and we respect his life and achievements.”

Let's hope their users can forget this unfortunate effort, and let's get together and feel alright.  In the meantime, perhaps Snapchat will somehow think of a way to ask for what Marley valued so dearly...redemption.





One last thing before we sneak out to the fire escape for a fattie...the cannabis industry will be ferociously fired up if fully legalized in America, so for you tech-heads who also may happen to be hop-heads, here is Forbes' list of canna-centric tech jobs that will make your future a little bit brighter, for those with a certain kind of higher aspiration.

We hope all of our readers had a safe and significant day!



Always remember that it is you, dear reader, who is the true bomb-bomb diggy.

  13. In this highly competent world, employers are concerned about security of their business information. Human greed can force any normal employee to spill out the secrets for personal gains. This in turn, can become disastrous for the employers as they can lose out important contracts to their business rivals. Since the employees tend to have insider information, they can easily leak out the same. The easiest way to do so is by sending text messages or emails via their iPhones to their handlers. Continued

  24. When instructing tax students in recent in past years, I always made it a point to over emphasize the difference between federal law and the California state law when it came to Medical Marijuana. FACT: The use of marijuana is illegal under federal law. PROBLEM: The IRS has determined that an obscure provision of a 1982 federal law prevents a marijuana dispensary from qualifying for the standard deductions that any other normal business could use. What this means is that a Marijuana Dispensary CANNOT use or legally take tax deductions for expenses such as rent, miles driven... legit online dispensary shipping worldwide

  25. Opening a business is easy. You just need money to start it, the perfect location, and the right business of course, and there you have it. However, opening a medical marijuana dispensary is not your usual business talk since we are dealing with illegal drugs here - well not really in the 14 states that made its use legal for therapeutic purposes. There are several procedures and process that you have to undergo for licensing. Good thing for Colorado medicinal marijuana dispensaries is that they can register their business as non profit unlike in California that a marijuana dispensary should be non profit.

  29. One of life necessary evils is dealing with weeds in your lawn and garden. There's really no other way around it because anywhere you grow plants worth keeping the weeds are sure to follow. Even the liberal application of chemical and organic herbicides, and weed barrier fabrics are not fool proof against the infiltration of those unwanted plants. Buy weed online
