    So in what sense does this have anything to do with weed then?

    • Weedeatr

      I dunno but it had me at pornburger.

    • DCReggae

      Networking/dating event for stoners…

    As a marijuana enthusiast I was hoping to be more excited by this event, but its stupid. $50 should include more food and drink OR charge less considering we have to buy food once we arrived. Also cooking classes on marijuana without marijuana? I could do a practice round with oregano my damn self, the tips that are necessary involve actually SEEING how its done, otherwise google is just as good or free. And most potheads are good at the internet for stuff like that because where else did we learn it?! The market place: again I paid $50 to get in, I’m not gonna spend more on stuff I can get from Capital Hemp any day of the week. Try again next time guys.

      DC is tip toeing and fence sitting this whole legalization thing. Either all in our out. They are toeing the line of being amenable but not promoting but promoting at the same time. The event even says come high but dont do ABCDEFG. Might as well just get stoned at your house and get a box of crispy cremes and watch cartoons at your own place…

      Its a nice try but stoners, which I am not one, want the full experience to make it worth it i am guessing…

      True, YouTube is free. And true, I could have gone to the public library instead of paying for college. At $35 For 3 classes and a sandwich and a beer, I’m pretty intrigued. Something tells me it’s going to be a good party and there will be fun stuff happening that they couldn’t write about.

    • Philippe Lecheval

      Seriously, you could buy quite a bit of weed, Dorito’s and Hostess cupcakes with $50.

  • “Indulge in this unholy trinity at Blazed & Glazed”
    I can’t tell at all from this press release what the trinity was, were they high when they wrote it?

    • jcm

      It’s in the first sentence! “A higher power always intended pot, barbecue and doughnuts to be enjoyed together.”
