How Cannabis Enthusiasts Can Stay Productive
The days of pot just being for stoners on the couch are over.

Professionals are one of the growing groups of consumers and staying productive is of the utmost importance. Check out our guide on staying productive while also taying a lover of all things cannabis on TNMNews.com. Learn about microdosing, strain selections and all sorts of tips to make sure you stay productive while medicated.
The History of Beer and Weed and Why They Ended Up On Such Different Paths
Many marijuana lovers are also big fans of craft beers and there may be a reason for that. Hops are a distant cousin of cannabis, but maybe even more importantly are their shared histories. Both alcohol and marijuana became illegal on the federal level around the same time, but people’s enthusiasm and demand for alcohol led to a violent and crime filled end to alcohol prohibition through the 1920’s up until 1933, while the prohibition on marijuana continued. Check out our article, Weed And Alcohol In The U.S., to find out more about the diverged history of both plants.
Meeting Richard Belzer at the CWCB Expo in New York
All of you Law And Order fans might remember Richard Belzer’s over decade long run playing the part of John Munch, a tough cop on the streets of New York City. Our own Richard Lowe met with the retired actor at the CWCB Expo in New York to discuss his cannabis advocacy. He is a self-proclaimed child of the sixties and has always been an advocate for marijuana. He is a large supporter of the medicinal benefits of cannabis and wants to see an end to the social injustice associated with cannabis prohibition. However, the interview is full of humor, as of course Mr. Belzer is a comedian first. Check out our interview with Richard Belzer and his little dog Houdini.
Our Favorite Stoner Movies from the 90’s
The ‘90’s were a fun time for a lot of us and also produced some ot the most loved stoner movies ever. We were introduced to the comedy of Chris Tucker and found out that Ice Cube can also act in the 1995 stoner flick, Friday. The Wayans brothers made their mark with the 1996 slapstick film, Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. And, there is no stoner movie quite like the 1993 flick, Dazed And Confused, where many of us were first introduced to Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck and Milla Jovovich. You can find out more about some of our favorite weed flicks at TNMNews.com.
