While wearable tech has already taken the world by storm, there’s another innovation that promises a bright and munchie-filled future: smokable clothing.
Hood Horkerz and vapRwear are two rival companies leading the forefront of the smokable garment trend. According to BuzzFeed News, the two are enmeshed in a feud the likes of which we haven’t seen since the Montagues battled the Capulets. But this is no Shakespearean tale. It’s more of a Wiz Khalifa one.
Let’s start with Hood Horkerz, which claims to be the (patent-pending) originator of the wearable smoking trend.

Sean Owens claims to have cooked up the idea for Hood Horkerz back in 2011. The company makes sweatshirts that allow wearers to smoke out of the drawstring. One end has a mouthpiece, while the other end has a glass bowl.
BuzzFeed News reports that Owens and Edwards are feuding over the title of smokeable clothing kingpin. Owens claims Edwards stole the idea from him, and Edwards claims he came up with it independently. (The two planned a party together in Denver in early 2014.) But hopefully, the two entrepreneurs will hash out their differences and end up becoming best buds.
