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. 


With reports of declining insect populations worldwide, or what George Monbiot calls an “insectageddon,” there is growing concern about the health of pollinators. This in turn has led to increasing interest in urban beekeeping, pollinator gardening and urban bee advocacy. Yet there is also a growing backlash against urban honey bees.
