Firefly 2 Portable Weed Vaporizer Review

The Firefly 2 is one of the best portable marijuana vaporizers in the current marketplace due to it’s attractive design and effective functionality.  This is an updated version of the original Firefly vaporizer from several years ago.  Most vape enthusiasts who have been in the game for awhile will realize this.  The bowl on this vape is not that large so it’s not a great vape to share with other users.  But, the vapor quality is extremely flavorful and it vapes your herbs in a highly efficient fashion.  Any standard 4 piece grinder will work great to get your herbs ready to vaporize.  Some users prefer a chunkier grind while others prefer to use a much finer grind.  You will have to experiment with it yourself to figure out which grind consistency is right for you.

Cleaning of this vape is a breeze because you can eliminate any resin that has built up on the outside of the unit with a moist cloth.  The original unit had that channel that had a lot of buildup and resin which would clog it up.  In order to use this vape effectively you will have to grind up your herbs in a very fine manner.  If you grind your herbs up in a medium fashion then the vape will work more effectively without putting too much strain on the device.  This vape was constructed with true convection technology and really makes a huge difference to the entire marketplace.  If you want to use this unit while you’re charging it then you will have to purchase an external charger.

For a complete cleaning please grab a vipe and wipe down the unit.  Make sure you clean the device with the bowl facing down, and clean it out after every 10 sessions.  You can make it to about 20 sessions but it’s much easier to simply clean the device after 10 because it really opens things up for you.  The device has five different heat settings for herbs and one for concentrates.  Sometimes when you really want to rip a bowl you have to jack up the heat settings through the smartphone app.  The new design is much smaller than the original version, and this vape can easily be hidden in a pocket or handbag to sneak into a concert venue.  The extra battery allows you to get more mileage out of your device, but in order to take advantage of it properly you will need to pick up the external charging dock.

Storz & Bickel really did a great job with this vaporizer, and we feel as if it’s top notch.  The only complaint that we really have about the device is that the mouthpiece does tend to get clogged after a few uses and it requires some regular cleaning and maintenance, but so does every other vaporizer on the market, so it’s really not that big of a deal.  Overall, the Crafty is an excellent portable vaporizer made by one of the best manufacturers in the industry, and you should rest assured knowing that it will deliver a top notch vaping experience every single time and is also backed by an iron clad 2 year warranty directly from Storz & Bickel.

Issues Of NORML With Marijuana Legalization

Personal use

It’s time to stop arresting responsible marijuana smokers. Millions of Americans use marijuana; few abuse it. Arresting these otherwise law-abiding citizens serves no legitimate purpose; extends government into inappropriate areas of our private lives; and causes enormous harm to the lives, careers and families of the more than 500,000 marijuana smokers arrested each year in this country.

Marijuana smokers are no different from their nonsmoking peers, except for their marijuana use. Like most Americans, they are responsible citizens who work hard, raise families, contribute to their communities, and want a safe, crime-free neighborhood in which to live. They are not part of the crime problem and should not be treated like criminals.

Responsible marijuana use causes no harm to society and should be of no interest to state and federal governments. Today, far more harm is caused by marijuana prohibition than by the use of marijuana itself.

Medical Marijuana

Marijuana prohibition applies to every one, including the sick and dying. Of all the negative consequences of prohibition, none is as tragic as the denial of medicinal marijuana to the tens of thousands of seriously ill patients who could benefit from its use. This includes cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, AIDS patients suffering from “wasting syndrome,” glaucoma patients, and those suffering from chronic pain, rheumatoid arthritis and a variety of spastic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, and epilepsy. Marijuana should be immediately made available by prescription to seriously ill patients.

NORML first raised this issue in 1972 in an administrative petition asking that marijuana be rescheduled so it could be prescribed as a medicine. After 16 years of legal battles and appeals, the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Chief Administrative Law Judge Francis Young found: “Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances know to man…. Marijuana has been accepted as capable of relieving distress of great numbers of very ill people, and doing so with safety under medical supervision. It would be unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious for DEA to continue to stand between those sufferers and the benefits of this substance in light of the evidence in this record.” Judge Young further recommended that marijuana be made available as a legal medicine. The DEA Administrator overruled Judge Young, and the Court of Appeals allowed that decision to stand, denying medical marijuana to seriously ill patients. Much of NORML’s efforts focus on lobbying both state legis lators and Congress to correct this injustice.

Industrial Hemp

Hemp refers to the non-psychoactive strain of marijuana grown by farmers throughout the world for industrial purposes. Hemp is one of nature’s strongest and most versatile agricultural crops and has many commercial uses. Various parts of the plant may be utilized for making paper, textiles, cosmetics, paints, clothing, foodstuffs, insulation, and animal feed. It produces a much higher yield per acre than substitutes such as wood pulp and cotton and requires virtually no pesticides. Farmers in 30 countries-including Canada, France, England, Germany, Japan, and Australia-grow hemp for industrial purposes. Presently, federal and state laws prohibit American farmers from growing this profitable and environmentally friendly commodity. NORML lobbies state and federal legislators to recognize hemp as a legitimate economic crop.
