Cannabis Culture is a Canadian
based magazine that majorly focuses around the controversial subject of cannabis
in modern day society. It was orginally called "Cannabis Canada" but was changed early on as its reader base began to spread across into other countries, primarily the United States
It generally focuses on activism, legalization/decriminalization of marijuana
, various aspects of marijuana
use, various aspects and techniques of growing and those who grow cannabis
, as well as various articles concerning famous/semi-famous artists, musicians, and others who talk about and/or use cannabis
recreationally, medicinally, and spiritually.
Consistent articles include "Bob High, science guy" comic strips as well as notes from the editor, Marc Emery
and/or Jodie Gienz Ramsay
. Also, Ed Rosenthal
, a somewhat famous cannabis
enthusiast, who specializes in giving advice to novice cannabis
cultivators and users, posts responses to various questions posed in the form of emails and/or letters mailed to him in California
The magazine has recently come under controversy, as its editor, Marc Emery
, is currently facing possible extradiction to the United States
for sale of cannabis
seeds to recipients in the United States
. There is varying controversy regarding this as the sale of marijuana
seeds is somewhat ambiguous in terms of its legality and is generally acceptable in Emery's current home in Vancouver, BC.
Cannabis Culture is one of the four major cannabis related magazines that is widely available in the United States
, the others being High Times
, and Skunk
. Other cannabis
related magazines are available in the UK.
It is generally seen to be, amongst the four, as more genuine and dedicated to the legalization and decriminalization of marijuana
, regardless of its intended use, be it recreational, medicinal, or spiritual. The other three tend to saturate their pages with well-done photography of various aspects of cannabis
culture, but tend to shy away from the political issues when compared to Canabis Culture.
There is mild controversy regarding the genuineness of Emery's character due to his extremist political standpoints and societal viewpoints.
is generally less available than High Times
in most commercial bookstores.
