Facebook is addicting and also incredibly annoying. It was pretty cool a decade ago when it was just your friends. Now of course, every member of your family is on Facebook, including your arch conservative grandparents. Your boss is on there too, so you should think twice before posting that picture of you doing keg stands at that house party last weekend.You can also forget about talking about weed, unless you want your entire family to know.
True story, last week I posted on Facebook a generic 4/20 greeting like, “Happy 20th day of April. There’s nothing special about this day whatsoever!” Those in the know liked and whatnot, then my extremely Catholic grandmother (she even plays piano at her church) commented “Must be a special day! Happy day!” Immediately my aunt commented, “it’s a holiday for celebrating smoking pot.” So, yeah. That was awkward. Luckily, there are other options for you. There are plenty of cannabis friendly social media sites where you can make friends with like minded people, and not have to worry about the conservative members of your family and your boss knowing that you love the ganj.
Massroots is the original home for stoners who have been burned by Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Massroots was originally started to help cannabis lovers locate dispensaries near the area where they live. People can read reviews about different cannabis strains, and share photos and videos.
If you’re a fan of Instagram, but are not a fan of the platform’s antiquated attitudes towards cannabis, then Duby might be the place for you. The app is available on iOS and Android for free. Like Instagram, the platform is centered around sharing photos. Users can also chat with other users. It’s also similar to Reddit in that users get points based on their popularity. People can up or downvote photos and posts by clicking on a joint icon. The joint either lights up, or goes out.
Not to toot our own horn, but Grasscity Forums is possibly the best place to go to get answers to all questions related to cannabis. Commenters on the site are also a hell of a lot more knowledgeable than some of the people who frequent r/trees. The forum has been around for more than a decade, so no matter how obscure you think your question might be, chances are it has been answered and discussed at length.
Social High functions similar to Facebook, where users can like or “puff” posts, or they can “pass” or remove them from their feed which is called a “weed cast”. If you’re not a fan of weed puns, then this is probably not the best place for you. You can also comment on posts and message other users.
