New York Christmas Gift Guide

Deb Tharp | December 11, 2019 | Leave a Comment

Christmas is here again, and even though Black Friday is over, it’s a good bet there’s still a few gifts to get. Too bad cannabis isn’t an option in New York because it’s still illegal to give away. California regularly sees a massive uptick in cannabis sales around the holidays.


But just because we can’t give cannabis or paraphernalia to our fellow patients in New York, doesn’t mean that we can’t find great presents for them. There are hundreds of cannabis-inspired gifts that will show your stoner friends you care.


Here’s a few gifts that we hope will inspire you this Christmas!

About Deb Tharp

Deb Tharp is a cannabis activist, consultant, and writer. She began her cannabis activism at the age of 18, helping local candidates campaign door-to-door in the Midwest. Little did she know that the plant would save her husband's life a decade later. After watching him recover 60 pounds to his skeletal frame in a matter of months, she was convinced that the war on weed must end. She ran for State Assembly in 2010 while completing her bachelor's degree at University of California, Irvine. During her campaign, she managed to bring cannabis legalization to the forefront of the debate. Little more than a year later, she was publicly arrested while gathering signatures for a cannabis ballot initiative in Orange County. She fired back at the county by qualifying Measure CC in Santa Ana under Kandice Hawes' of OC Norml’s expert leadership. In the following years, she authored, qualified and helped to qualify over a dozen local legalization ballot initiatives across the state while teaching other activists how to do the same. She currently writes for Nugg, the nation's largest online cannabis marketplace, while pursuing her law degree at Taft Law School and will graduate in 2021.
