Ask a Budtender: What's a Pinner?

Megan L., a budtender — or in her words, a "cannabis consultant" — at 99 High Tide in Malibu opens up to us about the first time she got high (there was an earthquake as she was sneaking back into her parents' house), her favorite way to consume (standard joints), and old terminology for cannabis and pot smoking accessories. Perhaps you don't hear much about "chronic" these days, or "pinners," but you should still know what they refer to: In this case, good weed, and thin, tiny joints. 


It’s no secret that my husband and I are longtime cannabis and hemp advocates. We’ve cheered as the majority of Americans have come around to supporting legalization, and applauded as cannabis law reform spreads from state to state. Still, decades of prohibitionist propaganda have left many in the dark about the powerful wellness potential of these long-demonized plants.

Can we see some ID please?
