Cannabis honey from the Greenway Compassionate Relief collective. Greenway was one of the first permitted collectives in Santa Cruz. It was founded by a cancer survivor who hated feeling like a criminal coming in and out of collectives in Oakland.

An automatic roller sold by the Koala Company. Place marijuana and a sheet of paper in the fabric pouch inside the lid of the roller. Then, as you close the lid, the joint will automatically roll and pop out a slot in the top of the box.
