I’m guessing not everybody will notice that the backside of this otherwise ordinary Stop Sign, located at the corner of Gansevoort and Hudson Streets in the Meatpacking District, gives a subtle endorsement of The Green.
Hey, Weed Aficionados, put down that bong for a few minutes and check this out. If your cable provider includes the Viceland Channel, get ready for a fun TV event — Weed Week — that no Pot Head will want to miss! Beginning Monday, April 17th, the Vice Network will bring viewers four days of entirely Weed-Themed Originals, Documentaries, Comedies and other Cutting-edge Programming! Weed Week comes to a close on Thursday, April 20th. Because: 4/20.
In preparation for this high-ly anticipated event, Viceland has launched a Weed Week Storefront Takeover in New York City, and in Los Angeles. These Storefronts are now filled up with fake-weed (4 inches deep) complete with a weed scented ATM oozing the smell of green onto the streets! Get your Selfies, Instagram pics and Group-photos now through April 20th!
In NYC, you’ll find the Weed Week Storefront at 90 Stanton St. on New York’s Lower East Side. In LA, the location is 7024 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles (across from Grauman’s Chinese Theatre).
Smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em!
I’ve seen some sick bongs before, but this is a first! For when only a Heavy Hitter will do! Photographed on Broadway, somewhere in Soho, NYC!
When I was invited to an exhibit of “Functional Art Glass,” my first reaction was, WTF is Functional Art Glass? Then I read a little bit further into the press release and realized that, back in the day, a piece of Functional Art Glass was referred to as a Water Pipe, or a Bong. And now, it is functional art! I can’t tell you how much I love knowing this. As Andy Warhol once said, “Art is What You Can Get Away With.”
Celebrating Twenty Years in business, lifestyle accessories brand 1Percent, one of the leading online retailers for smoking accessories, is currently hosting a gallery showcase, pop-up shop, and a series of events in New York City for the month of January. The gallery features over 75 unique glass sculptures in the Nor’Easter Collection, and you can see why these pieces have risen the status of collectable art. Nor’Easter is a celebration of pipe culture from respected glass artists spanning across the east coast, including MTP, JOP!, Coyle and Slinger.
For fans and collectors alike, 1Percentwill provide a one-on-one exclusive experience with Brandon Long, the gallery curator, as he explains the basics of functional glass, the innovators, and the outlook for high-end glass collectors with the current glass renaissance. I was lucky enough to get a VIP guided tour of the glass with Brandon, and his knowledge is not only impressive but his stories are fun and engaging.
Brandon knows many of these artists personally and is familiar with their education, techniques and methods of creating these pipes. He had a fascinating anecdote about every piece in the gallery! I will attempt to recall some of what he said in my captions for the photos to follow.
Post Continues After The Jump!
I see this truck — which I affectionately call The Pot Truck — parked around my neighborhood all the time. It sells THC-infused hard candy (in the form of lollipops) and most likely other types of green things. Today It was parked at 14th Street and First Ave right by Stuyvesant Town, so I spotted it right away as I got off the bus. As I took this photo with my iPad, the proprietor, shall we say, walked around the side of the truck and made this friendly gesture at me! If you squint, you can just make out the phone number you need to call to contact the friendly people in the Pot Truck. Apparently, they deliver.
Hey, Happy 4/20, People of Earth! I know that the Weed laws are way more liberal these days, but if you see this sign on a traffic light, maybe you should not be driving?
However you choose to celebrate, please enjoy your day!

When I first laid my baby blues on Miss Mary Jane, a limited edition, resin figure designed by artist Paige “Paigey” Pumphrey and manufactured by Patch Together, I thought I was looking at a little alien pixy with a massive broccoli floweret for hair. But closer investigation revealed what should have been obvious from the start: Mary Jane’s hair is huge bud of pot, duh. Furthermore, her adorable hooded jumpsuit is actually a Ziplock baggie, how appropriate! Miss Mary Jane is 8-inches tall when fully assembled (some gluing is involved) and sells for $59.95. While they currently appear to be sold out, you can request a re-stock at This Link.
April 20th, or Four Twenty has become something of a unofficial annual holiday for pro-marijuana enthusiasts. What is left to say but “smoke ‘em if you’ve got ‘em.”
