Come! Get Your Weed Candles! [Candy Dish]

Not that I even know what cannabis smells like or anything. I certainly have never been around the substance, mom.

Body Blog: Puff, Puff, Pass

4/20 is months away. So why is it that you’re seeing people smoking weed everywhere you go? Maybe it’s because a new government study just concluded that regularly smoking pot, even over a period of several years, does not impair lung function. Really.

CollegeCandy's Sounds of 4/20 Playlist

While we at CollegeCandy don't condone illegal drug use, we know that many people (like Miley Cyrus and Michael Phelps) do, so in honor of their favorite day, we thought we'd put together a little 4/20 playlist. You know, the perfect soundtrack for a day of Hot Pockets, YouTube marathons and...uh...more Hot Pockets.

Some Campuses Know How To Party on 4/20

Tomorrow is 4/20, also known as "Let's Get Stoned Day." Or, for me (and Michael Phelps), just another Tuesday. While most people will celebrate this national holiday behind a hanging tapestry in the privacy of their dorm room with 12 bags of chips and a tub of frosting, there are some schools that turn it into a campus affair.

Welcome to Marijuana University

If you’re like me, chances are you glanced at your calendar today and then did a double take, thinking, “It’s been December for a whole week? How the hell did that happen?” For every student, the pressure is on: finals are fast approaching, and we’ve all got about a million pages to read and two million more to write before we can reach the holy grail of winter break.

I’m Torn: Drugs

Before anyone calls the police and I wind up on the next episode of Cops, let me clarify. When I say "drugs" I mean marijuana/weed/pot/green/reefer/hemp/buddha/herbage, or whatever else you want to call it. Lots of my friends have touted the effects of weed, and some even smoke it every day as a way to relax from a hard day of boring classes and crazy professors. I've never tried it, but lately I've wondered why not.

Truth: Your Parents Are Smoking Pot

f you notice that your mom’s eyes are a little bloodshot the next time you see her, it might not be because she’s been crying about how much she misses you. As Slate’s Daniel Engber reports, a 2007 survey reveals that about 6 percent of Americans between 50 and 59 reported smoking pot in the past year.

Smokin’ The Pot Is Good For You

It turns out that marijuana may actually be good for us binge-drinking party animals, AKA: college students. The study showed that smoking the pot helped protect our brains from all that harmful boozing (ice luge, anyone?) we do on a weekly basis.

Is There Egg in That Blunt?

So in honor of 4/20 I’ve decided to share with you all a lesson that I learned about the pot: Two years ago I was an occasional smoker, with friends who were quite the opposite. One day we went out to a field to smoke. Why did we choose a wide open field? I'm not sure, but I think it might have had something to do with the fun that comes from rolling in the grass while high.

Get Stoned And Do Fun Things!

Well my favorite holiday is here. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas cookies; I love pumpkin pie; and I also love dressing up like a slutty Dorothy, cat, nurse, (insert random noun here); but there is nothing I love more than the 20th of April.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Our Favorite Munchies

April is a busy month: Easter, Passover, Earth Day and, our personal favorite, 4/20. We seriously curbed our smoking habits after a pretty serious waffle binge a few years back, but we let loose - munchies and all - once a year. And that day is comin'.

Celebrate 4/20 In (High) Style

As a non smoker I find 4-20 to be absolutely unbearable. No one can give me a serious answer to my questions and my roommates raid the kitchen to the point that I find them crouched down mixing Craisins with dry pasta and calling it lunch. But this year I had the fabulous idea of making it possible for me to enjoy my friends on a day when they enjoy nothing besides smoking...and things that are crunchy.
