Alien Worlds Could Be The Netflix Show That Stoners Have Been Waiting For

 Everybody loves nature docs, but nobody appreciates them quite as much as your friendly neighborhood stoner does. In order to find out why, I placed my finger on the pulse of the cannabis community (r/trees, duh) and wasn’t disappointed with what I discovered.   “It’s almost confusing to watch high,” writes Redditor ThatCatisaFish in reference to 2016’s Planet Earth II. “I felt like sometimes what I was watching wasn’t real.” Other users can relate. Bluntcaramelarrow, recalling sister series Blue Planet, in which an eel escapes from toxic shock after diving head-first into a brine pool hellscape, says they kept thinking the […]

Flashback Friday: Dutch Punk In The 1960s

In this May, 1988 High Times story, Jeff Jarema and Jim Wynand discuss early punk music from the Netherlands, and how the British Invasion hit Amsterdam long before it arrived in the States. Though the musical contributions of ’60s greats like the the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Byrds, to name just a few, is beyond question, there were other groups from that era who made little impact at the time, but whose influence has endured, growing steadily to this day. Anybody who can appreciate these seminal bands knows that it’s underdogs like the Sonics from Seattle and the […]

For Comedian Alonzo Bodden, Home Is Where The Stage Is

When it comes to comedy, Alonzo Bodden is one of the most popular “Alonzos.” “If you look up ‘comic Alonzo’ online, it will either be me or Cristela Alonzo [in the results],” he says. “And I’m not the Mexican lady. If you mix up me and Cristela, maybe it’s time to put the blunt down.”  Alonzo himself put the blunt down after years of indulgence, which predated his swift rise through the comedy ranks. And while live performances have been on hold for the past several months, it appears there may finally be a light at the end of a […]

Sean Paul Speaks Out About Cannabis Legalization, Persecution, and Consumption

In the early 2000s, Sean Paul rose to fame despite his island of Jamaica being the second poorest country in the Caribbean. He beat the odds that were stacked against him by emerging into an award-winning, international recording artist.  Throughout his career, he has released many hit singles that landed on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, with the three classics, ‘Temperature,’ ‘Cheap Thrills,’ and ‘Get Busy,’ peaking at number one. This in and of itself is nothing short of a huge success.  In 2013, Sean won a Grammy for the ‘best reggae album,’ Dutty Rock, in addition to scoring an […]

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall – Which Is The Best CBD Cosmetic Regulation Of Them All?

There is no way to talk about the use of any kind of cannabis in Europe without running into a mouthful of long, number-delineated if not hyphenated directives. Cannabis Sativa L is, ultimately, a plant with many uses by humans. Every one of those applications, but particularly consumables, carries its own rules.  The cosmetics space is no exception.  There is good news though. Critical pieces of such regulation have now been changed over the last several months in the EU, and it will have a huge impact on the development of the vertical across the region. The Changes Now In […]

High Times Greats: Malcolm X

In observance of the anniversary of Malcolm X’s death on February 21, 1965, we’re republishing the following item from the June, 1993 issue of High Times, edited by Steven Hager. On Sunday, February 21, 1965, Malcolm X, a leading spokesperson for the black power movement, was assassinated at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem. Although at least five men were involved in the execution, only three were ever arrested and their subsequent trial was riddled with irregularities. Despite evidence of conspiracy and cover-up, the official investigation made little attempt to track the real motives behind the murder. Like many of the […]

Shaka King On Filmmaking, Truth In Storytelling, And The Ritual of Writing Stoned

Shaka King started his feature filmmaking career with a stoner comedy all stoners should see: Newlyweeds. Calling it a stoner comedy, however, is reductive. It’s about the highs and lows of a relationship similar to the rollercoaster of an intense high. It’s a debut film with an authentic indie spirit.  Eight years later, we’re now seeing King’s second feature film, Judas and the Black Messiah, which is about activist Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya), FBI informant William O’Neal (Lakeith Stanfield), and the Black Panthers. It’s an intimate, yet epic, true story and such a tangible vision from King. The filmmaker co-wrote […]
