About This Quiz

Marijuana has been growing in popularity in the United States since it was first legalized for medicinal use in California in 1996. Over the years, it has become an increasingly more socially acceptable drug to use. This social acceptance has allowed the communities that use it to create a culture of sorts, which focuses on the art of growing and smoking marijuana.  From the seeds that the plants grow from, up to how the drug is consumed, people are evaluating its progress every step of the way to ensure it is of the highest quality. 

Not everyone can spend this much time on a hobby, however, so how much do you know about the drug and its history? Are you able to define what a strain is? Can you explain to someone what a Time Bomb is? Do the terms 'sativa' and 'indica' mean anything to you? From dispensaries to growers, the culture and information surrounding marijuana are extensive. Take this quiz to find out just how high you can score! These questions were designed to weed out those individuals lacking broad marijuana knowledge. Will you puff, puff, pass this quiz? Or go down in a blaze?
