Thanksgiving is a holiday for feasting with family and friends while giving thanks for a good harvest, and all the good from the year passed. According to Urban Dictionary, Danksgiving is similar but different because heavy cannabis use is required. With that in mind, here are 5 things to be thankful for this Danksgiving!
1. Vape is the word of the year!
Vape was awarded the title, Word of the Year, by the Oxford English Dictionary. According to Oxford, vape was triumphant because today, “You are thirty times more likely to come across the word vape than you were two years ago, and usage has more than doubled in the past year.” Whether you are using a Volcano, plug-in vape, or a vape pen, the point is you are vaping.
2. Cannabis Critic is an official job now!
The New York Times confirmed that Denver is home to the first weed critic in the United States. This has been a dream job for many Americans for decades, and its finally real.
3. Three revolutionary grandmothers took bong rips on camera to show the world what it is like to get high for the first time!

4. Four legal states (and one district)!
Voters approved laws allowing the recreational use and retail sale of cannabis in Oregon and Alaska. In the District of Columbia, voters legalized recreational use without retail sale. Add in Colorado and Washington, and 8 percent of the United States (and one district) have, officially, legalized marijuana. Ending cannabis prohibition is something worthy of many thanks.
5. J-O-B-S, jobs!
The cannabis industry is creating jobs in states where the plant is legalized, be it for medical or recreational use. WeedHire determined that this budding industry has the highest job availability and growth potential.
Happy Danksgiving! Celebrate responsibly.
