Smoke and the City: Marijuana matriarchs of New York

THE Peckham women are your typical attractive, well-educated New Yorkers from a wealthy construction dynasty.

At some point in our cannabis careers, we’re all posed with the question, “How long is my cannabis good for?” Maybe you’ve found a few nugs tucked in your winter jacket from last year’s ski trip, or when harvesting a medical crop you may need a way to safely store the excess buds until you’re ready to consume the fruits of your labor.
