We can now accept debit and credit cards through an LCB approved processor, with a super low $1 charge. We’ve also dropped our ATM fees to just $0.50 per withdrawal!
Now you don’t have to be nickel-ed and dime-d to death by fees from both the weed store, and an out of network debit transaction. Some stories we have heard from customers are hair raising, including up to $8.50 in additional fees to the list price of the packages purchased.
Part of the reason we had not be able to bring card services to you to this point was the cost prohibitive fee that ALL the other weed stores charge you when you purchase. Rather than sharing the load, they pass along all those fees to you to maximize their profit.
At House of Cannabis, we think a little differently about things because we are in this for the long game as the little hometown chain that could. From our roots in Medical Cannabis at places like Tacoma Holistic Collective, Cannatonics Society, and Rainier Xpress (Olympia), to the House of Cannabis chain in Washington State legal weed (Tacoma, Tonasket, and Carlton), we are FROM Tacoma. #LocallyOwned and #VeteranOwned, we care about you. We care about our city.
Football season is finally upon us, for all of us die hard fans our time to rejoice is now! Personally, the nostalgia and joy I get from the NFL season, rivals that of a Christmas morning for your average child. Between the fantasy football, the pig skin pick ‘em leagues, or just watching my Hawks battle it out every week, I freaking love the NFL. Some may call that a little bit immature and you know… I’m okay with that.
What I’m NOT okay with is the stance that the NFL has
repeatedly taken on the topic of cannabis. Year after year the NFL is forced to
take stances on issues that come up in the media’s spotlight.
Whether it’s the league ambivalently taking sides on social issues like what Kaepernick was kneeling during the national anthem for, or the league straight up enforcing penalties on players for actions in their personal lives.
With Kaepernick, teams around the league boycotted him as a
player and wouldn’t roster him even though he was good enough and better than
many players around the league. They didn’t want him to use the NFL stage as an
outlet for the social issues he was advocating.
On account of this being a weed blog I’ll pump the brakes
and get back to my element… cannabis. The NFL in the past, has been notorious
for enforcing harsher penalties to players that test positive for marijuana,
then athletes who have committed violent crimes.
Martellus Bennett, a retired NFL player, recently went on a Bleacher Report podcast and said that he thinks 89 percent of active NFL players smoke weed.
“There are times of the year where your body just hurts so
bad,” Bennett said. “You don’t want to be popping pills all the time. There are
anti-inflammatory drugs you take so long that they start to eat at your liver,
kidneys and things like that. A human made that. God made weed.”
Andrew Brandt, writer for Sports Illustrated had this to say about the NFL and cannabis testing, “It is not a drug test; it is an intelligence test. Players who have not previously tested positive are only tested once a year, and only during a four-month offseason window that begins on April 20 (yes, 4/20, maybe the NFL does have a sense of humor) and ends on August 9.”
Nate Jackson, another retired NFL player, was interviewed on Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel and said that he thinks 50% of players in the NFL locker room smoke weed. When asked on his personal consumption of cannabis in the NFL, Jackson said, “I weeded as needed.” He then went on to say how viable cannabis has been to him as a medical alternative to painkillers.
I may disagree with the league in the stance they take on
various issues but I’m not going to lie, they have a goddamn awesome product
and I subscribe to it religiously. But hey at least I stream my gameday bootleg-style
on the internet.
Reminiscing of past Hempfests… always such a stoned memory. Our Seattle Hempfest weekends usually started in Bremerton. My friends and I would congregate for the free ferry ride to Seattle where we would roll joints in the bathroom to gear up for the brutal walk North. Once we landed in Seattle if we weren’t feeling bougee enough to flag down a bike cart we would get to stepping quickly so we could start sparking those freshly rolled joints in the safety of the Hempfest gates.
Before a recreational market was established in Washington my friends and I would always be super excited to accumulate edibles from various sources at Hempfest. Once a year we would have access to all these awesome new stoners that we would never get access to in our hometown little stoner circles. My strategy was always to seek out the hippiest looking grandmas because they would never disappoint when it came to dank ass edibles. Boy did I bite off more than I could chew one or two times, lets just thank god for the massive amount of food vendors that are available for us at the Munchie Market. Nowadays it’s very easy to get your hands on tasty baked goods or any type of edible with recreational stores scattered everywhere, my friends, we’re spoiled compared to how it used to be.
The more I think about it, Hempfest is like a weed smoker’s version of comic-con, it has everything, and anything weed related legally available, except for marijuana. So be smart; bring some doobies, blunts, vape pens, edibles, whatever your heart desires just practice good safe consumption habits, partake once you get inside the gates. Don’t forget to bring a little extra cash to avoid getting slaughtered by the ATM fee’s and lines. One more tip, you’re allowed to bring your own water through the gates. We all know what its like to get caught with some brutal cotton mouth on a dazed August day, so do yourself a favor and bring that thirst quencher.
Stay tuned as we amp up for Hempfest as we will be running
some in store sales to gear you up for the festivities. More to come on that as
we approach our holy weekend.
Hempfest is August 16-18 at Myrtle Edwards Park just west of Seattle Center. We might not be there officially as House of Cannabis, but you can bet your best nugs a few of us will be there in our free time so if you see us, give us a shout, and be prepared for an instantaneous smoke session to commence. Peace and Love ya’ll.
