2024 420 Gift Guide



For our third annual 420 Gift Guide — and my first as the keeper of the Lansterdam in Review flame for City Pulse — I have chosen items with an eye toward trying to provide something for all tastes. Many products are sourced from local cultivators and processors. We are blessed to be in the epicenter of Michigan’s dope industry — no small thing, considering the leading role our state has assumed nationally. I hope you all have a great Stoney 420 and can try some great products from top-tier companies and provisioning centers.

I wasn’t too into the idea, but I have smoked an entire ounce over the last few weeks from the bag I picked up the last time I was at the Pincanna shop. Any pothead would be happy to find an ounce of this under the weed plant on 420.
