Will cannabis legalization sweep the world with a steady stream of cities, states and countries following the examples set by Washington and Colorado and now Uruguay? I sure hope so.

Unfortunately, the image of the average stoner is not particularly attractive, and for good reason since stoners are most often portrayed as dumb slacker slobs. But this was not always the case. In the 1930’s, vipers were actually daper cats with refined taste in fashion and a deep understanding of blues and jazz. So what we really need is a path back to this forgotten past, a time when cannabis use was cool and carried zero negative stigma.
