CANNABIS IN HISTORY:
THIS WEEK"S FUN CONTEST!!!
WIN SOME BITES! Pick a new name!!!
Hey Now Im at a loss for what to call our line of seasonal bites for August. Every other month seems to have an obvious holiday to embrace with clearly marked colors and schemes.... What is the theme for august, back to school seems too kid oriented, we have the start of football season, and otherwise its just damned hot... the name i came up with of "melted bag of hot wrappers and sit" didnt seem too catchy although appropriate... so that name is not an optional entry!
SO: you get to pick the name... which ever MMC picks the name will receive 3 bags of free bites as a thank you, that's a $30 value, so put on your thinking caps and come up with a name and three color motif and submit your entry ASAP, I will announce a winner here next week! Everybody who enters gets $.50 off all bites ordered this week.
one more reason to eat a banana's F*Rasta our potent and refreshing personal sized frozen sensation that is sweeping the region's stoners of all ages off their feet!
Wafer Madness is still quite a new item, if you havent stocked them yet order by 7pm today and save $.25 on each wafer madness you order!
just this once do you think we could pass the dutchie on the right hand side?
