About us

Why New York City loves different strains of weed

My name is Joe Fleshberg and I live and breathe weed strains! I live in Manhattan, NYC, and frequent all five borroughs. Queens and Staten Island are my 2 favorite places to smoke weed. Bronx less so, and Brooklyn depends on the weather if it is cannabis-friendly.  I have been writing and blogging about New York weed since 2003 and I won’t stop any time soon!!

Living in the Big Apple has been an interesting weed journey and the marijuana laws for New York City have changed tremendously. It is crazy that citizens and tourists can smoke weed on 5th Avenue or in Times Square so openly and even in front of the NYPD!  NYX has tons of weed strains, each with its own NYC unique personality, and I am starting to see custom New York City names like Madison avenue stones or Broadway kush.

So, in the big picture of stoner culture, (I am thinking Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson!) dope weed strains are the kaleidoscope of possibilities that keep us toking and shmoozing.
