The perfect deck for the Ambitious Card--it doesn't rise to the top, it gets high.

I laughed at that far more than I should've and will likely steal this joke for my very own. :D

Hemp cards are perfect for Card In Cigarette or Mullica's Card Is Cigarette.

The line for the revelation:

"The problem with Hemp cards is that they're not meant to be played--only smoked."

These cards are useless for playing solitaire. I can't get more than halfway through a game before I have to stop and go look for a bag of potato chips.

I'm using these cards for my five-phase Cannabis Oil and Water routine. Actually, I'm not sure there are five phases--it may be six or seven--it's just that after about the third phase, I sort of lose my place, can't focus and start giggling because this concept of playing cards merging and unmerging like some sort of pasteboard desegregation or class division social insurrection reminds me that the universe is proceeding as it should except on Friday when the karmic forces rattling around IN MY SKULL, FOR GOODNESS SAKE, make EVERYTHING a lot clearer, a lot clearer, clear as a thin layer of water on a blue marble elephant--and I mean ELEPHANT, because aren't we all in a zoo, a zoo of our own construction, on exhibit for ourselves like a mirror outside the cage and we're inside looking out but seeing in for the first time.

I have to go and lie down.

could be used for harris's super swindle. the cards get rolled/folded up, if you recall. Place them ih a clip and pass them around. After everyone has had their turn the cards are unfolded and the card has disappeared 'in a puff of smoke'

The cards can be used for U.S. history classes:

"Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.” – George Washington / 1st U.S. President.

According to a comment posted by someone with USPC, despite the branding, there's no actual hemp in the cards themselves. That means they would be perfect for false deals.

Have a card selected and control it to the 13th position from the top.

Spell REEFER MADNESS turning up the last card as the selection. Then count the packet--13 cards--and explain that 13 = the 13th letter of the alphabet = Marijuana.

Dazed and Confused. I knew I had heard this line before.

Have a card selected and signed from this deck and burn it. Produce any card from your wallet and claim it's the selection. No one will know the difference.

Seems like they missed a bet there. Maybe they should get in touch with these guys:
