Not to be outdone by Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga admitted in a radio interview that she used to smoke 15-20 joints a day to self-medicate for a hip injury. And while Gaga believes weed "is the best of drugs" to choose from, she also wants young kids to know they "actually can become addicted to it."

Will It Ever Be "Cool" For Women to Smoke Marijuana?

Hamilton Nolan · 10/28/13 03:08PM

Marijuana—maybe you've heard of it?? It's okay. We're "cool." You can act naturally around us. Look, we all know that the "schmoke" (slang for "marijuana") is everywhere now. Literally millions of American men smoke the dangerous drug. But... the fairer sex? Hold your horses.

Decriminalized Weed in Brooklyn?

Hamilton Nolan · 10/25/13 08:40AM

The man in line to become the next district attorney in Brooklyn says that he will not prosecute people caught with less than 15 grams of weed, ganja, skunk, cheeba cheeba yall. This could be great for Brooklyn's brand cachet.

The Weed Fairy Just Stopped By the Gawker Office

Camille Dodero · 10/18/13 04:42PM

Earlier today, we told you about the Weed Fairy, an anonymous New York City benefactor leaving free marijuana buds around Brooklyn's subway stops. It just so happens that after our post went up, the Weed Fairy magically materialized outside Gawker's Elizabeth Street office, taped a couple of Garden Breath posters on our front doors, and left a bunch of weed. This generous stoner is a woman, not a man, and the photo above is evidence of her handiwork.

Brooklyn Has a Weed Fairy

Camille Dodero · 10/18/13 01:29PM

New York is filled with scamps and scoundrels, perverts and pranksters, so when Brooklyn-via-Denver musician Travis Egedy, also known as Pictureplane, discovered a poster taped to a subway wall with a pinch of weed attached, he had to wonder: Could this gift be for real? And more importantly, should he smoke it?

"Is There Such a Thing as Black Pop Culture?": Director Shaka King

Rich Juzwiak · 09/18/13 02:00PM

It's rare to watch a stoner comedy and think that its director will make a great interview. But Newlyweeds, writer-director Shaka King's independent comedy/drama (opening today at New York's Film Forum), is a rare kind of movie, one that depicts lives and relationships you see infrequently (if at all, on film), and there's an urgency to King's voice underneath the weedy, mellow vibe.

Let's Change 4:20 To 5:20, For a United America

Ken Layne · 09/04/13 12:45PM

If you use the popular text-message service called Twitter, then you've surely seen an endless stream of messages each afternoon announcing the arrival of "420," or 4:20 p.m. This means people have begun smoking their marijuana. Yet "beer o'clock" does not come until 5 p.m.

Nonviolent Criminal with 8,000 Pot Plants Gets Probation, Not Jail

Cord Jefferson · 06/25/13 07:40PM

Here's a crazy idea: A Michigan man convicted of having a large quantity of pot—a plant that everyone smokes to get a little high now and again—was recently given probation by a judge who thought it stupid to send a guy to jail for years just because he got busted growing weed. Wow. Can America survive this kind of insanely rational justice?
