Don't look. From all sides. In through the mail slot, over the speakers, infiltrating your social media feed... heeeeeeere's holiday-themed consumerism! It's not really a sneak-attack, more like an avalanche of demands on your time, energy, and money. Luckily, you have an advantage: you're a cannabis consumer. Our bold opinion for this week: Cannabis can help us get back to the real meaning of the holidays, whatever the stoner stereotype.<br /> <br /> Let's take that old-school, lazy couch potato cannabis consumer idea and unpack it. How exactly is it different from the Danish 'hygge' lifestyle trend?<br /> <br /> If you've been under a rock and haven't heard of hygge, it's an idea the world has borrowed from Denmark: that you can just get cozy and be content with the colder season, enjoying the simple things in life like reading, drinking tea, getting warm under a blanket, and eating homemade cookies. Sounds a lot like how we like to spend our winter weekends, with the addition of a bit of cannabis. Seems like lazy might need to be rebranded to luxuriating? or maybe just 'living'?!<br /> <br /> The best part about hygge is that it can be as simple or fancy as you like. It's accessible for people with a little or a lot of money, as it's more about the company and coziness. We doubt you need a Black Friday sale to get comfy - you've likely got all the tools at your disposal. <br /> <br /> Maybe you're the type of pot aficionado that never subscribed to the lazy stereotype? You're an up-and-at-em' kind of person who partakes in cannabis in order to chill out a bit, but not completely veg out?<br /> <br /> We fully support taking about 10 - 20% off the top there, bud. Some of us get really stressed trying to make all the magic happen before we (hopefully) eventually learn that the magic happens when you're enjoying yourself. Use that chilled-out cannabis advantage to take a minute of pause: brainstorm about your gift and grocery lists before you go shopping; stop and enjoy a social moment at the party you worked so hard to put together; take a rest after a full afternoon of snowman assembly. Embrace your ability to stop, drop, and edit: you don't need to do it all.<br /> <br /> So go ahead, do the things that make it feel like the holiday season: write the Christmas cards; take weeks to plan and prepare your Hanukkah feast; line up at the mall for the photo with Santa; bake cookies for company and coworkers; string up enough lights that they can see your house from space; take the kids tobogganing, prepare potluck dishes; schedule get-togethers with both sides of your family... but embrace your inner stoner stereotype and do it your way: cozy and/or calmly. <div style="text-align: center;"><br /> <br /> *|TWITTER:TWEET|*</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <!-- [if mso]> </td> <![endif]--> <!-- [if mso]> </tr> </table> <![endif]--></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%" class="mcnDividerBlock" style="min-width: 100%;border-collapse: collapse;mso-table-lspace: 0pt;mso-table-rspace: 0pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;table-layout: fixed !important;"> <tbody class="mcnDividerBlockOuter"> <tr> <td class="mcnDividerBlockInner" style="min-width: 100%;padding: 18px;mso-line-height-rule: exactly;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <table class="mcnDividerContent" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%" style="min-width: 100%;border-top: 2px solid #EAEAEA;border-collapse: collapse;mso-table-lspace: 0pt;mso-table-rspace: 0pt;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="mso-line-height-rule: exactly;-ms-text-size-adjust: 100%;-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"><span></span></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <!-- <td class="mcnDividerBlockInner" style="padding: 18px;"> <hr class="mcnDividerContent" style="border-bottom-color:none;

He was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (the same cancer as Terry Fox), and although doctors were initially able to save his leg in a 2011 operation, it was amputated in 2017 due to complications with an infection. Riley was using cannabis to manage the pain from that operation. His six month ban from playing is now over, but it seems crazy to us that cannabis is considered performance enhancing, particularly for para athletes.</span></span></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <!--
