“From Working Men to World-Class Athletes, Stone Lifting Has Always Been the Ultimate Feat of Strength”
Do you even lift giant stones, bro? Stone lifting, an ancient tradition dating back a thousand years, is about as primal as an exercise gets. Strength, after all, has long been connected directly with work capacity. A stronger person could do more work; a stronger person was more useful. And heavy stones served as a simple measure of that strength. Not much has changed in those thousand years — if anything, stone lifting is more sport than work.

Stoners: The Untapped Market

It’s a strange thing that major food-service brands don’t market more to stoners, considering the rapidly changing legal landscape around cannabis, and of course, stoners’ capacity for chowing down.
