Nick Offerman's Cannabis Tip For Woodworkers

Actor-slash-woodworker Nick Offerman recently set his scripts and softwoods aside to offer fans advice on his craft - including a handy tip for pro-cannabis carpenters like himself.

The online Q&A with Offerman was put together by Wired, who gathered woodworking queries from Twitter and had the 'Parks and Rec' star respond to topics like...

"Yes, they are," replied Offerman. "Any protective garment is necessary....We wear aprons because they protect our civilian clothing from finishing products and dust in general. And they have handy pockets in which you can store things like pencils, rulers and your one-hitter."

That's not the first time Offerman had mixed woodworking with marijuana. In his 2013 satirical self help book 'Paddle Your Own Canoe', Offerman offered advice on woodworking, reminisced about the time he got busted with a one-hitter, and praised mary jane.

"Sweet, sweet lady," Offerman wrote. "Marijuana is quite possibly the finest of intoxicants. It has been scientifically proven, for decades, to be much less harmful to the body than alcohol when used on a regular basis (Google 'Science')....People are constantly committing crimes whilst under the influence of, or looking for funding for, every other intoxicant besides marijuana. I am a supersweet teddy bear, but when I drink tequila, I want to knife somebody....When I smoke pot, I want to look at nature and laugh about everything and eat some delicious things and then sleep."



As medical marijuana continues to gain ground across the US, more and more colleges are adding cannabis to their curriculum. In fact, more than half of America's pharmaceutical schools (62 percent) now teach students about medical marijuana according to a new survey conducted by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh's School of Pharmacy. "With more states legalizing medical marijuana, student pharmacists must be prepared to effectively care for their patients who may use medical marijuana alone or in combination with prescription or over-the-counter medications," the study's authors wrote.
