You can find places to buy weed on the app store. You can rate different strains of weed.

We had a hunch it was going to be possible, and, now, the people who rate video games are letting the cat out of the dimebag. You can smoke pot in GTA V, according to the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. That same group has offered a bunch of other mild spoilers for GTA V, if you're interested.
Arjan Roskam. Don't know who he is? He's behind a number of famous marijuana strains, like White Widow and Super Silver Haze—and behind the huge Green House Seed Company, which makes millions of dollars every year, all around an empire of weed.

I started smoking pot during my junior year of college, after a loud and messy breakup with my first girlfriend that sent me into an absolutely manic rage. It was shortly after she left, bawling, that one of my roommates asked if I wanted to get high. I guess that was his way of trying to make me feel better. That…
Screw Obama: the most exciting news from last night is that marijuana is now legal in the states of Colorado and Washington. Of course, PAX Prime, annual gaming convention and mecca for nerds across the world, is also held in Washington.

There aren't many things that marijuana users say weed can't make better. Take this guy I used to know. His name was Mike. Every once in a while we'd hang out with a few other guys and play ridiculous amounts of Halo 2. Occasionally Mike would light up during our fragfests.
