by Laura Rueda on 17/10/18

"If you want to do it, you can smoke outside, on the terrace...

by Laura Rueda on 11/09/18

by Laura Rueda on 31/08/18

Province Brands is a Canadian company that has been receiving a lot of attention in the international media for having created the first beer in the world composed in its entirety of 100 % marijuana.

The legalisation of cannabis for therapeutic and recreational use in some countries has brought with it the creation of a fairly extensive industry. In addition to beers, edibles, beauty products and lubricants, comes an invention which claims to measure the amount of marijuana that you have consumed, just like a breathalyser.

It looks like a small plastic box, about the size of a large mobile phone, which includes a disposable cartridge...
