The Happy Ogle is celebrating its first birthday! Not every digital publisher gets to celebrate their special anniversary with fires, pandemics, protests, pandering politicians and, of course, personal demons brought on by months of solitary confinement!
Happy Birthday to Us!
Over the last year, we’ve explored Oklahoma’s thriving cannabis culture; reviewed some killer weed; criticized state government; and kept you informed on all the local canna-shenanigans!
Of the 20 stories our attractive, smart and loyal readers loved most from The Happy Ogle’s first year, here is Part 1 of 2, numbers 20-11:
20. The Blunt Truth About Weed & Work in Oklahoma
Feb. 3, 2020 | This story pointed out several key points about medical marijuana in the workplace. Basically, we told you that if you don’t smoke on the job, don’t have a safety-sensitive job or aren’t a federal employee…you’re golden!
19. Terpenes: What They Are & Why Nerdy Stoners Won’t Stop Talking About Them
July 25, 2019 | Terpenes are the part of the cannabis you smell, crucial to an informed cannabis-buyer’s purchase decisions — BAM! — article summarized! This terpenes chart is a keeper for medical marijuana patients, a good reference for which terpenes are good for what ails ya.
18. Brokelahoma: Public School Refuses MMJ Dispensary Donation
Oct. 19, 2019 | Believing medical marijuana to be the devil’s lettuce, Ponca City School District refused a donation from a community dispensary despite being broke as fuck like most public schools in Oklahoma, with teachers literally begging for school supplies. The decision was so shocking, industry OG High Times even wrote about it.
17. Famous Oklahomans We’d Like to Slip an Edible
Feb. 4, 2020 | We did some sativa daydreaming about famous Okies we would love to slip a cosmic brownie with large amounts of THC except that it would be illegal and Brandon did not want to go to jail. We still laugh when we read this one.
16. Cooking with the Croctopus: Pressure Cooker Decarb and Infusion
Nov. 5, 2019 | Our crazy pal Croctopus teaches us how to make edible oils UNDA PRESSUA! Since this is the most foundational aspect of creating DIY edibles, our readers really paid attention! And hopefully didn’t blow anything up.

12. Oklahoma Gov. Stitt Prefers Budget Bust to Recreational Marijuana
April 27, 2020 | Another unsurprising story about how our Covidiot leader would rather go broke than legalize — and tax the shit out of — recreational, adult-use marijuana!
Nov. 18, 2019 | This sensational story of a budtender who got fired over a turkey sandwich (or so he believed) really cracked us up! It also pissed off the very serious vegans, who came for us on this one — which cracked us up even more, since the author is a very silly vegan. If there was ever some Oklahoma shit, THIS is it.
—We hoped you had as much fun with this countdown as we did. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week!
