Lots of dealers have taken to selling mixes and weed hybrids lately. I have taken to calling this kind of experimentation with weed, this mixing and matching and mashing-up of strains, "weed maximalism." It dovetails with maximalism in the artistic sense—a response to there being too much. It makes sense that the maximalist impulse has come to weed growing. Thanks to recent adjustments in marijuana legalization and evolution in medicinal marijuana, there's more of a variety of weed out there and it's moving around the country more and that's wonderful and the result is people fucking with all these types of weed. You're also seeing weed maximalism with, say, Taco Bell's stoner-catering menus in which it finds infinite ways to combine all the foods it sells (I mean, Sriracha Chicken Crunchwrap Sliders?), or even increasingly baroque bongs, pipes, and vaporizers. It's weed that can't make up its mind about what it was trying to do to me.
