American sculptor, Dale Chihuly, once said, “I never met a color I didn’t like.” Neither have we, at Kush Bottles. No only do our vast selection of multi-colored Philips Rx bottles pop, but so do the walls inside our Southern California headquarters! Check out this exclusive look!
Behold the labyrinth of Kush Bottles! Our hallways are adorned with a splattering of our Philips Rx bottles.
There’s no shortage of color in here. Our conference room glows Kush Bottle green keeping us alert and motivated all our meetings!
Those who visit us at our office immediately know they’re in the right place. This mural featuring two of our Philips Rx bottles welcomes guests seconds after they step through Kush Bottles’ doors.
Local artist, Joachim Ixcalli, has been working around the clock on this magnificent mural which now brightens up Kush Bottles’ last bare wall. We think it’s pretty poppin, don’t you?
If you’re a dispensary owner who loves color as much as us and you’d like to purchase some of our multicolored, child-resistant bottles, feel free to check out our website at Kushbottles.com or give us a call at 888.9205.874. We’d love to hook you up.
At Kush Bottles, creativity’s in our company’s genes. Coming up with new pop-top vial colors to store your medical marijuana in is the kind of thing that gives us a high. Our customers are creative people too. We’ve caught some of them getting original and using their Kush Bottle Pop Top containers to store more than just their weed.
1. Gum, breath mints, and Tic Tacs. Chelsea H. always breaks her gum out of its original packaging and dumps it into her her neon pink Kush Bottle. Every time she pops it open to ask her friends if they want a piece, they always says they’d rather have one of the pink vials!
2. Spices. Some customers like to use our colorful Philips Rx Pop Tops to hold their Cumin, Paprika, and Garlic Powder. That’s one way to spice up your spices!
3. Toothpicks. Kush Bottles are the perfect size containers to store after-dinner toothpicks in. And never worry about finding them in your purse. The bright colors really pop!
4. Other medicine. Kush Bottles make some costumers’ medicine cabinets come to life! They keep their meds better organized too. Advil’s in the pink Philips Rx vial. Cough drops are in the yellow…
5. Coins. Is loose change scattered everywhere in your pocket or your purse? Some customers find their Philips Rx Pop tops to be the perfect solution.
“I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”
“It’s important for it (legalization) to go forward because it’s important for society not to have a situation in which a large portion of people have at one time or another broken the law and only a select few get punished.”
“When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and didn’t like it. I didn’t inhale and I didn’t try it again.”
“I think it’s OK. I don’t think it’s going to happen in Georgia yet, but I think we can watch and see what happens in the state of Washington for instance, around Seattle, and let the American government and let the American people see does it cause a serious problem or not.”
“Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself.”
Families with sick children are migrating to states where medical marijuana is legal to gain access to the drug.
1. “This makes sense, it’s a simple choice,” says Maria Botker, mother to Greta, who suffered up to fifteen seizures a day before she started taking medical marijuana capsules. Maria made the tough choice to move to Denver with Greta and leave behind the rest of her family in Minnesota so that her daughter could get the medicine she needed.
2. Amber and Paul Loew had to move to Colorado for medical marijuana as well. After trying twelve different prescriptions legal in Texas to quiet their daughter, Hannah’s, numerous seizures, and not having luck with any, they gave up their jobs and health insurance and hit the road. “This is our home, and we’re pretty much being forced to leave,” Amber Loew explained.
Colorado is one of twenty states where medical marijuana is legal and one of two states where recreational marijuana is legal. Do you know any stories of people who were forced to move for marijuana?
The debate about legalizing marijuana has many voices but here are seven which we found particularly interesting.
It has been a medicine for about 3,000 years now. It only hasn’t been a medicine in this country for 68 years. I’d say in the scheme of things it has been a medicine a whole lot longer than it hasn’t been.– Dr. Donald Abrams, cancer and integrative medicine specialist at UCSF Medical Center.
Extrapolate that [anticipated tax revenue off marijuana sales in Colorado] to New York, where we are so starving for revenue…It could be a real revenue generator for our state. How do you turn that away right now, when every single indicator shows that medical marijuana has compounds that absolutely can help people? – New York Assemblyman Steve Katz
This substance, the most harmful thing about it was not any inherent psychopharmacological quality of the drug but the way we as a society were treating people who used this drug.- Dr. Lester Grinspoon, retired Harvard Medical School professor and author of Marihuana, The Forbidden Medicine
The fact is it works. It works better than anything I’ve ever tried, any pill I’ve ever taken. -Anonymous epileptic sufferer for whom medical marijuana has stopped the seizures and enabled her to return to work and school.
Politics should not be determining whether or not children live. – Brian Wilson, father of New Jersey daughter with severe form of epilepsy who moved to Colorado to get the form of medicinal marijuana his daughter needs.
I smoked weed and nobody died. I didn’t get into a car accident. I didn’t O.D. on heroin the next day. Nothing happened. We sat on Pete’s couch for 11 hours. Now, what’s going to happen on Pete’s couch? Nothin. You have a better shot of dying out there in the real world. Driving hard to the rim. Ice skating with a girl. Now you want to keep yourself alive, you go over to Pete’s and sit on his couch ‘til you’re 86. Safest thing in the world…- Narrator in ad sponsored by the Office of National Drug Control Policy and the Partnership for a Drug Free America in an attempt to make marijuana smoking look boring
It is far and away the best medicine we have for chronic wasting and increasing appetite in cancer patients- Wendy Gwinner, oncology social worker, Bozeman Deaconess Hospital

For the first time since Gallup started tracking American public support for legalizing marijuana, the “ayes” have it. A clear majority (58%) say it’s time to make it legal.
The change in opinion has been slow, but steady. Back in 1969 when Americans were first asked where they stood on the subject, only 12% favored legalization. Support doubled in the 70s with 28% backing legalization, but then stabilized in the 80s and 90s until it began inching upward beginning in 2000. The country was equally divided in 2011, but two years later, the majority is in favor.
What’s behind the shift?
Hard to pin down; however, several factors could be at work.
- The growing acceptance of medical marijuana as more scientists chime in and patients attest to the relief they’ve found could play a part.
- The legalization of recreational use in both Colorado and Washington may be pushing Americans’ attitudes towards greater tolerance of the drug.
- Social mores seem to be easing around the drug as high profile celebrities such as Bill Maher openly admit, “I have tried marijuana…about 50,000 times,” to which the audience responds with laughter and applause.
- Government economies are need of cash infusions and they may be looking a bit enviously at the income both Colorado and Washington stand to make off the sales of marijuana in their states. Remember, lotteries were once taboo in the U.S. Now 43 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands operate them.

GREEN RUSH. Move over history books. Expect a new entry behind the California Gold Rush.
THE GRASS IS GREENER. The grass may not be greener in Colorado but it is legal which makes it look a whole lot more attractive.
JOLLY GREEN GIANT. If sales keep going the way they are, Colorado may want to see if they can borrow General Mills’ mascot and rewrite the jingle to say, “In the mountains of the Jolly, ‘High, High, High,’ Green Giant.”
GREEN LIGHT. While Colorado (and Washington) voters gave the green light to recreational marijuana legalization, the rest of the country is stuck in red light mode. Who’s having more fun?
SEEING GREEN.Looks like a lot of folks in Colorado will be seeing green of either the organic type or the monetary type: recreational pot users, medical marijuana patients, dispensaries and government coffers. And until the banking system figures things out, that green is going to be in cash.
