It's important we not lose focus on the victims of marijuana legalization: home chefs. Metro reports a woman looking for a kitchen accessory to grind rosemary accidentally bought a device to grind marijuana instead. And she was none too pleased in her one-star review, saying "the rosemary just fell right through" and complaining it's "impossible to find" an actual spice grinder "thanks to the weed industry." The reviewer says she wishes the marijuana industry would find a new name for the devices so she doesn't have to "sort through 89,679,376 products" just to find a real spice grinder.

The disappointed Amazon shopper could perhaps be forgiven for her confusion. The $9.99 Ohuhu Herb Grinder she purchased not only has the ambiguous word "herb" right in its name, but boasts it can "grind up herbs, tobacco, marijuana, and other small plant materials." Rosemary is certainly small plant material. And Refinery 29 reports the reviewer wasn't the only one misled by the device; it appears at least three other Amazon customers thought they were getting a spice grinder. Regardless, the review has been removed from Amazon, according to Munchies. (More marijuana stories.)
