How do they fill a whole magazine just about weed? I guess now with the medical marijuana and decriminalization debates but before all that, what did they talk about every month? How awesome Pink Floyd and Dazed and Confused is?

Yeah and why do we need a Newsweek? What do they talk about? Politics and world events every month?

And what's up with Sports Illustrated? How many sports can they talk about every month? Don't get me started on Playboy...breasts and vagina...every month? Boring!

/it's articles (and pictures) of marijuana, believe it or not there's more to discuss in relation to it then Pink Floyd and Dazed and Confused
//and a lot of ads
///adding more pages to any magazine is stupid anyway, people get their stuff on the Internet

Pretty easily.  Drug criminalization and the the War on Drugs provides a lot of fertile ground for stories.  Drug cartels, Civil Rights issues, Washington lobbying/politics, drug raids, etc.


  Definitely more possibilities for stories than Cigar Afficianado, Model Airplane Monthly, Model Railroader and all the other bazillion hobbyist magazines in circulation.

I haven't looked at High Times in 15-20 years, but I still have the article I cut out on setting up a budget hydroponics grow room, using gravity-feed nutrients tanks and 2-liter soda bottles. Absolutely terrific engineering. I set one up, and had a great success. Thank you, High Times!

fark them. Probably going to fill it with ads for fake weed to scam stupid highschoolers, like usual.

I still have a few of my old 70's issues, along with the old Mad and National Lampoon mags from then.

I was reading in the 90's and 00's, so maybe the older issues were different.

I'm not sure what your point is. Newsweek is about news. Sports Illustrated is about sports. Stuff that actually happens every day. Granted, being a magazine, it's stuff that happened a week before everyone read it on the net but that's besides the point.

But I get it, articles on decriminalization, how best to grow weed. But pictures of weed? WTF? Do people beat off to pictures of weed or something?

I

see what you are getting at , but if it is not your hobby I could see how one wouldn't understand.  Could be the same as cooking magazines or clothing or flowers or gardens.   I mea why does one need a magazine about homes and gardens?

Worked in a pipe shop that sold this magazine among others. There were dudes who would come in every month on the dot to pick up the new issue.

I can imagine the walls of their trailer lined with strain of the month centerfolds.

Ah, sad to hear that then. I would never have guessed they'd have run ads of that type.

Its mostly advertising space.  Having written for cannabis mags for the past 5 years, I'm here to tell you.....its ALL about the advertising.(so are the cups)

I think so - I looked it up and I believe it's happening because a non break space (& n b s p ;) isn't being interpreted properly.

Pretty much the same business model with every hobbyist magazine.   How does Ships in a Bottle Monthly stay in business?    Well, there's a few  Ships in a Bottle manufacturers and suppliers out there.  They have very small businesses, with very small advertising and marketing budgets.  They can't afford to carpet bomb the general public with advertising.  They have to make every marketing and ad penny count, by direct marketing to the ship in a bottle enthusiasts.     How do they directly reach that small niche market?    It just so happens Ship in a Bottle Monthly exists, and has cultivated a small pool of   subscribers to advertise to.    Thus the sole reason why Ships in a Bottle Monthly exists.

ESBM The Magazine is waay superior to Ships in a Bottle Monthly, because not only is it a weekly, but it has fewer words, and bigger pictures. Bigger ships and smaller bottles, too. They're soon going to launch "Bottle in a Ship" magazine. I can't wait. :)

I only read Ship in a Bottle Digest. The writing is far superior, and it's a daily publication. I don't have to wait a week to get the most up-to-date information regarding the ship-in-a-bottle industry. Plus, ESBM The Magazine and Ships in a Bottle Monthly are too mainstream for my eclectic ship-in-a-bottle tastes.

High Times was the magazine the published the Ted Nugent interview where he said he shiat his pants to avoid the draft. They've always had a fair amount of general interest content

Fark: where adult men shiatting their pants is considered general interest.

/but seriously, just like Playboy, HT does have the occasional good interview.

This is a major mistake and will likely kill both publications. You do NOT want to get the ship in a bottle and bottle in a ship people mixing.  A few people have tried, and results in larger and larger ships in bottles in ships, or smaller and smaller bottles in ships in bottles.  Where would it end?  Insanity, that's what.

There's a good discussion of this topic in the current TARDIS in a Klein Bottle Quarterly.
