Unity in a Large Marijuana Community to End Prohibition

FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC – The Largest 420 Rally in the Nation! by Miguel Lopez Organizer, Denver 420 Rally

Amendment 64 set out to do one obvious thing: make money regulations. The enduring ambition of the marijuana movement at large is to legalize marijuana by explicitly removing it from the Controlled Substance Abuse Act, decidedly repealing all marijuana laws and releasing current prisoners of the war on marijuana. Amendment 64 did not remove criminal penalties, making concessions for people currently in jail for non-violent marijuana offenses and ignored the 18-21 year old community. People are still in jail and they will still face a hard time finding a job, resorting to dealing with the black markets for survival. There should have also been guidelines for the smoking of marijuana in public treating it more like tobacco regulation and the Clean Indoor Air Act. While proponents of Amendment 64 and even those who opposed it understand that this is a step towards legalization, it is still only a legislative act to create an economy and not to end a war that has destroyed thousands of lives, in fact, it still perpetuates it. It set forth guidelines for future regulations, establishing a strong bias for those who have the means to open respected marijuana businesses while also maintaining criminal penalties for those in possession of over an ounce.  Talk about dangling a carrot.  It has launched a green rush, but at the same time, it has made enough restrictions so that poorer and marginalized members of society still face the same problems as they did before and still risk going to prison and losing their basic freedoms. In other words, Coloradoans, those of you who do not have money to join expensive local lobbies and attend fundraisers with other wealthy residents who have political connections,

or have access to large amounts of cash, have been left out. Your voice was not heard and your community is not being represented.  You, or someone you know, is suffering from having a marijuana charge on their record, on probation, or in jail.   You and almost everyone you know, has been left out of a conversation.  The people who wrote Amendment 64 did not have your best interests in mind or they would have repealed marijuana laws to let true free-market grow.   Because of criminal penalties still in place and startup costs that favor the wealthy, the large poor and marginalized communities miss out on opportunities for owning businesses in the new marijuana economy.  Note that marijuana laws disproportionally affect minority communities and those members of these large communities are restricted from certain jobs or cannot open a marijuana business because of marijuana offences.    The Denver 420 Rally & allies advocate human rights and believes fully that the war on marijuana is a war on poor and marginalized members of the community. Native Americans, Latino Americans, African Americans and poor White


Americans have been targeted predominantly in the drug war for nearly a hundred years. The marijuana laws themselves were racist!  Worst of all, Amendment 64 was created by the wealthy, for the wealthy, and even more disgusting, for those who made a fortune on the war on marijuana,  such as the private prison industry and planet killing fossil fuels, which are one of the reasons marijuana was criminalized for in the first place.  All of these are violations of human rights. Making money is not a bad thing.  It is also not a bad thing to have a business.  America was built on small business.  But, when power is gained by the persistent abuse of other human beings, which is slavery, it becomes a human rights issue.  Keeping criminal penalties on marijuana in place continues the abuse of human beings.  It continues to keep people in prison and continues to hold people at a disadvantage for personal growth, literally robbing them of their freedom.   The Denver 420 Rally is committed to getting the greed out of weed.  We are also committed to getting our voices heard and are committed to ensuring that all of our rights, our human rights, are being considered.  We will fight to make sure that members of communities most affected by the war on marijuana are included in the local and national debate and have their rights and freedoms restored.  We are committed to supporting the growth of small local business & minority owned businesses. We will continue to develop confidence and educate the large marijuana community on how to be active members of their community through continued contributions and peaceful political actions. The End of Prohibition will not come from the people until two thirds of the states unite and amend our US Constitution. Attend this year’s rally and hear more about

how we intend to do this, together, a marijuana community in unity. We have asked the Denver Police Department to properly prioritize their duties in regards to the smoking and consuming of marijuana for adults age 18 and over and to focus on the minors under 18 who should not be, unless in possession of a valid red card with recommended condition. We the Denver 420 Rally, formerly known as the Ken Gorman Rally, are the first and ongoing 29 year old establishment that has shaped what the large marijuana culture and community is today. Stand up with us and show your support and unity for our cause of total freedom for marijuana locally, federally and globally including removing marijuana from the NATO Drug Treaty Act. Keep all attendance within Civic Center Park and away from the Denver Art Museum south of the park as to respect the children’s event at the museum on Saturday.  Anyone charged while in attendance will receive criminal defense services FREE of charge, courtesy of Attorney at Law, Robert Corry with Corry and Associates, Denver CO. Together we will build an inclusive community with civil engagement and equality. LET DENVER SERVE AS A BEACON OF HOPE.

MARIJUANA GIVEAWAYS RAISE INTERESTING QUESTIONS... A new Colorado law OKs recreational use of pot, but selling it remains illegal. However, a loophole is prompting some questionable business practices. Here’s one way to increase foot traffic at your out-ofthe-way store: offer a free gift of marijuana with every purchase of $30 or more. That’s the approach one Colorado “head shop” is taking. The Denver Post reports the shop recently put an ad on Craigslist in an effort to attract more customers to its relatively remote site near the city’s Sports Authority Field at Mile High (insert your joke here). “The marijuana is not for sale,” the store’s owner told the Post. “You’re actually purchasing smoking accessories, tobacco, T-shirts, fine art. As a gift for them patronizing our store, we’re giving them 2 grams of marijuana for free.... It’s just an incentive.” The offer, and others like it, are also coming under scrutiny from both sides of the cannabis issue in Colorado. And it could have an impact on the future of marijuana sales elsewhere in the U.S. Voters in the state passed Amendment 64 last November, legalizing the recreational use of marijuana by adults. You can also legally “gift” a certain amount of marijuana to someone else. But it’s still illegal in Colorado to buy or sell cannabis for recreational purposes -- at least until next year, when communities can decide to allow or ban local retail pot shops.  Medical marijuana is already legal and a big business in Colorado, and this acceptance, along with the apparent legal loophole in Amendment 64 has, for the moment, encouraged others in the cannabis industry to try their luck with “free” pot. A Colorado Springs delivery service recently came under law enforcement scrutiny for offering door-to-door marijuana deliveries in exchange for “suggested donation[s] towards researching [marijuana] and improving our cultivation operation,” according to the city’s Independent newspaper,

Some cannabis-oriented clubs also offer free marijuana -after you pay an admission fee. Supporters of Amendment 64 say there’s some legal backing for the concept of trading marijuana without “remuneration” for a service, donation or item. But marijuana is still illegal under federal law, and local law enforcement officials in Colorado are wise to the game as well. “If I show up at your house with less than an ounce of marijuana, I’m 21, you’re 21, and I say, ‘Hey dude, it cost me 50 bucks in gas to get over here,’ and you give me 50 bucks for my gas, there’s nothing illegal,” Lt. Mark Comte with Colorado Springs Police told the Independent. “I mean, you and I both know what’s going on with it,” he said, “but they know what the loopholes are right now.”

Legal Cannabis in

Colorado & Washington poses a

Growing Dilemma New opportunities for those who know how to Grow

It may be called weed, but marijuana is legendarily hard to grow. Now that the drug has been made legal in Washington and Colorado, growers face a dilemma. State-sanctioned gardening coaches can help folks cultivate tomatoes or zucchini, but both states have instructed them not to show people the best way to grow marijuana. The situation is similar in more than a dozen additional states that allow people to grow the drug with medical permission. That’s leaving some would-be marijuana gardeners looking to the private sector for help raising the temperamental plant. “We can’t go there,” said Brian Clark, a spokesman for Washington State University in Pullman, which runs the state’s extension services for gardening and agriculture. “It violates federal law, and we are a federally funded organization.” The issue came up because people are starting to ask master gardeners for help in growing cannabis, Clark said. Master gardeners are volunteers who work through state university systems to provide horticultural tips in their communities. The situation is the same in Colorado, where Colorado State University in Fort Collins recently added a marijuana policy to its extension office, warning that any employee who provides growing assistance acts outside the scope of his or her job and “assumes personal liability for such action.” The growing predicament is just the latest quandary for these states that last year flouted federal drug law by removing criminal penalties for adults over 21 with small amounts of pot. In Washington, homegrowing is banned, but it will be legal to

grow pot commercially once state officials establish rules and regulations. In Colorado, adults are allowed to grow up to six marijuana plants in their own homes, so long as they’re in a locked location out of public view. At least two Colorado entrepreneurs are taking advantage of that aspect of the law; they’re offering growing classes that have attracted wannabe professional growers, current users looking to save money by growing their own pot and a few baby boomers who haven’t grown pot in decades and don’t feel comfortable going to a marijuana dispensary. “We’ve been doing this on our own, but I wanted to learn to grow better,” said Ginger Grinder, a medical marijuana patient from Portales, N.M., who drove to Denver for a “Marijuana 101” class she saw advertised online. Grinder, a stay-at-home mom who suffers from lupus and fibromyalgia, joined about 20 other students earlier this month for a daylong crash course in growing the finicky marijuana plant. Taught in a rented room at a public university, the course had students practicing on tomato plants because pot is prohibited on campus. The group took notes on fertilizer and fancy hydroponic growing systems, and snipped pieces of tomato plants to practice cloning, a common practice for nascent pot growers to start raising weed from a “mother” marijuana plant. Ted Smith, a longtime instructor at an indoor gardening shop, led the class, and warned these gardeners that their task

won’t be easy. Marijuana is fickle, he said. It’s prone to mildews and molds, picky about temperature and pH level, intolerant to tap water. A precise schedule is also a must, Smith warned, with set light and dark cycles and watering at the same time each day. Unlike many house plants, Smith warned, marijuana left alone for a long weekend can curl and die. “Just like the military ... they need to know when they’re getting their water and chow,” Smith said of the plants. The class was the brainchild of Matt Jones, a 24-year-old Web developer who wanted to get into the marijuana business without raising or selling it himself. As a teenager, Jones once tried to grow pot himself in empty Home Depot paint buckets. He used tap water and overwatered, and the marijuana wilted and died. “It was a disaster,” he recalled. Jones organized the class and an online “THC University” for home growers, but his own thumb isn’t green. Jones said he’ll be buying his marijuana from professional growers. The course showed would-be grower Cael Nodd, a 34-year-old stagehand in Denver, that marijuana gardening can be an intimidating prospect. “It seems like there’s going to be a sizable investment,” he said. “I want something that really tastes good. Doesn’t seem like it will be that easy.”

Lafayette

Defends Decision to Restrict

Cannabis Use at Businesses Response challenges tea shop’s lawsuit against moratorium

Lafayette has defended its right to put a stop to the consumption of marijuana at The Front Tea & Art Shop in Old Town, claiming its recreational pot moratorium does not conflict with state law. According to a response the city filed in Boulder District Court this week, attorneys for Lafayette wrote that Amendment 64 -- which permits adults 21 and older to possess and use small amounts of marijuana in Colorado -- does not altogether prohibit the city from regulating the use of the drug. “Plaintiffs want to operate illegally and to have this court prohibit the City from enforcing a properly adopted moratorium which was adopted with the best interests of the citizens of the City in mind,” the city stated in its response. “The public interest in no way favors or is benefited by the government being barred from enforcing its laws.” Lafayette’s recreational marijuana moratorium, passed by the City Council on Feb. 5, bans until October any recreational marijuana-related business in the city, including those that provide for or allow “the use of marijuana” on site. The Front, which allowed people to consume their own cannabis inside the Old Town shop, sued the city last month -- claiming it overstepped its authority and attempted to pre-empt state law when it went as far as placing restrictions on the use of pot on private property. The shop’s owner, Veronica Carpio, characterized The Front as a “cannabis-friendly” operation, but she said it never sold pot and thus didn’t qualify as a marijuanarelated business as envisioned by Amendment 64. The shop has since shut down. Lafayette countered in this week’s filing that it has local land use powers that permit it to regulate businesses in town and that Amendment 64 expressly grants it those powers. It asked the court to deny Carpio’s request for a preliminary injunction. “Plaintiffs have incorrectly alleged that the City’s valid use of its police powers constitutes unconstitutional conduct,” the re-

sponse reads. “... Land use is generally a matter of local concern. As a result, Amendment 64 is actually a mixed matter of state and local concern, and since the City’s moratorium does not conflict, there is no preemption.” The city said it’s merely trying to preserve the “status quo” while the state works on implementing regulations for the nascent recreational marijuana industry. Lafayette’s attorneys went on to argue that Carpio’s claim that the moratorium amounts to a takings of her business is not supported by the facts. “The Front Tea & Art Shop has never been shut down by the City or by the moratorium,” the filing reads. “The business sells tea and art, allegedly not marijuana or marijuana products, and currently can sell art and tea regardless of the moratorium.” But Carpio said Wednesday that the city’s prohibition on marijuana consumption in her business -- which she complied with -- effectively stigmatized the shop and put her out of business. “I can still sell coffee and art, but who is going to come in there if they’re scared to be seen in there?” she said. “I wasn’t selling marijuana, but allowing its use was a good marketing measure to bring more traffic in.” Traffic had slowed to where it was no longer feasible to keep The Front Tea & Art Shop open, Carpio said. She closed the business at the beginning of March. Her attorney, Thomas West, said the city is not impotent in the face of Amendment 64 but can’t use its home-rule powers to overstep state law. “No one is arguing it can’t pass this moratorium, but it’s been clearly shown that they’ve been given certain authority on this issue,” he said. “They do have police authority, but it does have limits.” A message left with an attorney with Nathan, Bremer, Dumm & Myers, the Denver firm representing Lafayette, was not returned Wednesday.

L

ast week, the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) slapped former middleweight champion boxer Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. with a $900,000 fine and nine-month suspension. Why? Not for using a performance-enhancing drug or throwing a match, but simply because he tested positive for marijuana. Such an excessive punishment should not go unanswered, and fortunately Chavez is planning to appeal the decision. We need to get behind him and take this opportunity to send a message to the sporting world that it’s time to revisit their marijuana policies. Take action now and call on the NSAC to grant Chavez’s forthcoming appeal, drop the penalties, and change their policy regarding marijuana so this does not happen to athletes in the future.

WASHINGTON LEGALIZATION

MARIJUANA SUPERSTORE

OPENS IN SEATTLE

by JOHN LANGELER Instead of a state-run liquor store, a building in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood now holds “the Whole Foods of weed,” according to the man who owns the business inside. Green Ambrosia opened last Saturday and is the city’s biggest medical marijuana dispensary. The opening comes as Washington’s Liquor Control Board and lawmakers decide how to regulate recreational marijuana sales in the wake of Initative 502, which legalized the use and possession of small amounts of pot. “This could be the face of what I-502 enabled pot looks like,” explained Green Ambrosia owner Dante Jones. Jones’ business has operated since 2011, but only recently opened a storefront.  Inside, behind a bamboo wall, is one large

While planning for whatever regulations may come from I-502, Jones said Saturday he is not sure how licensing will work. “We’re preparing for it,” he said, “As a business owner, the only thing I can hope for is that they’re going to continue the same set of standards (included in the initative).” Public forums are being held across the state on how to license recreational marijuana.  No matter what the state decides, it is still possible the federal government could take action against Washington State since, according to federal law, marijuana is still illegal.

ITALY LEGALIZES MEDICAL MARIJUANA By STEFANIE

Italy has mostly been in the news lately, because of the political crisis and new elections, the resignation of the old and the election of the new pope, and not to forget football, but something else has been taking place, something that almost went down amongst all other happenings: the legalization of medicinal cannabis. Shortly before the end of the former governments term, a bill for the medicinal use of Cannabis was approved. Health Minister Renato Balduzzi signed the bill end of January 2013, and since mid-February it has come into effect. As the official publication states, the decision has been taken considering the following aspects: • THC and Dronabinol are classified as medicines while cannabis is classified as an addictive dangerous drug. (Schedule I and II) • Notes from the Superior Institute of Health, the Superior Council of Health and the Antidrug Policy Department were issued supporting the decision. Thus, by re-scheduling cannabis derivatives in the second table (section B), the Italian government legally allows the medicinal use of cannabis in all its forms while complying with the UN Convention on Drugs. This decision makes Italy the latest European country after the Czech Republic to legalise medicinal cannabis.

TOKE UP: AMSTERDAM Mayor Won’t Enforce Coffee Shop Tourist Ban AMSTERDAM — Amsterdam police will turn a blind eye to foreigners buying cannabis in its famous “coffee shops” when a national ban comes into force next year, the city’s mayor said on Wednesday. The mayor’s comments put an end to months of uncertainty over a ban on foreign visitorspurchasing cannabis at the shops that was introduced this year by a Dutch national government coalition which has since collapsed. “It has been decided that Amsterdam law enforcement authorities will not attach any priority to enforcing the local residence requirement,” Amsterdam mayor Eberhard van der Laan wrote in a letter to the current government. The previous Liberal-Christian Democrat coalition government which introduced the ban complained that coffee shops attracted crime and unwelcome visitors.

But the legislation was greeted with dismay by officials in Amsterdam, whose more than 200 coffee shops are a major source of income. Out of an estimated six to seven million annual tourists in Amsterdam “around one in three of them visit a coffee shop,” Van der Laan wrote. “Our concern is that if we applied the residence requirement, they would buy cannabis products on the street.” The current Dutch government has stopped short of repealing a ban that was welcomed by southern provinces in the Netherlands where officials complained of traffic problems caused by drug tourists from Belgium and Germany. From January 1, Amsterdam will impose some restrictions on cannabis use. Coffee shops will have to be at least 250 meters from schools. The city is also considering prohibiting use in public playgrounds.

MARIJUANA PROTECTS THE BRAIN FROM

ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

BETTER THAN ANY AVAILABLE DRUGS Discovery Could Lead to More Effective Treatments

LA JOLLA, CA – Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found that the active ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, inhibits the formation of amyloid plaque, the primary pathological marker for Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, the study said, THC is “a considerably superior inhibitor of [amyloid plaque] aggregation” to several currently approved drugs for treating the disease. The study was published online in the journal Molecular Pharmaceutics, a publication of the American Chemical Society. According to the new Scripps Research study, which used both computer modeling and biochemical assays, THC inhibits the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE), which acts as a “molecular chaperone” to accelerate the formation of amyloid plaque in the brains of Alzheimer victims. Although experts disagree on whether the presence of beta-amyloid plaques in those areas critical to memory and cognition is a symptom or cause, it remains a significant hallmark of the disease. With its strong inhibitory abilities, the study said, THC “may provide an improved therapeutic for Alzheimer’s disease” that would treat “both the symptoms and progression” of the disease. “While we are certainly not advocating the use of illegal drugs, these findings offer convincing evidence that THC possesses remarkable inhibitory qualities, especially when compared to AChE inhibitors currently available to patients,” said Kim Janda, Ph.D., who is Ely R. Callaway, Jr. Professor of Chemistry at Scripps Research, a member of The Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology, and director of the Worm Institute of Research and Medicine. “In a test against propidium, one of the most effective inhibitors reported to date, THC blocked AChE-induced aggregation completely, while the propidium did not. Although our study is far from final, it does show that there is a previously unrecognized molecular mechanism through which THC may directly affect the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.” As the new study points out, any new treatment that could halt or even slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease would have a

26 |

CRONIC MAGAZINE

major impact on the quality of life for patients, as well as reducing the staggering health care costs associated with the disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia among the elderly, and the numbers are growing. The Alzheimer’s Association estimates 4.5 million Americans have the disease, a figure that could reach as high as 16 million by 2050. A survey by the National Center for Health Statistics noted that half of all nursing home residents have Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder. The costs of caring for Alzheimer’s patients are at least $100 billion annually, according to the National Institute on Aging. Over the last two decades, the causes of Alzheimer’s disease have been clarified through extensive biochemical and neurobiological studies, leading to an assortment of possible therapeutic strategies including interference with beta amyloid metabolism, the focus of the Scripps Research study. The cholinergic system – the nerve cell system in the brain that uses acetylcholine (Ach) as a neurotransmitter – is the most dramatic of the neurotransmitter systems affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Levels of acetylcholine, which was first identified in 1914, are abnormally low in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. Currently, there are four FDA-approved drugs that treat the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease by inhibiting the active site of acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for the degradation of acetylcholine. “When we investigated the power of THC to inhibit the aggregation of beta-amyloid,” Janda said, “we found that THC was a very effective inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase. In addition to propidium, we also found that THC was considerably more effective than two of the approved drugs for Alzheimer’s disease treatment, donepezil (Aricept ®) and tacrine (Cognex ®), which reduced amyloid aggregation by only 22 percent and 7 percent, respectively, at twice the concentration used in our studies. Our results are conclusive enough to warrant further investigation.”


Genetically Engineered Cannabis

G

enetic engineering is the manipulation of the genetic code (or ‘genome’), it can be done to either plants or animals. Mice were the first to get their DNA meddled with back in the 70’s. The first plants were modified in the 1990’s and since then we have learned a great deal about tinkering with the genome to enhance certain plant qualities. Food crops are now routinely genetically modified to yield better, be drought resistant, to be insect and disease resistant etc. Genetically modified (‘GM’)Soybean, corn and many other crops are now grown all over the world. The genie is out of the bottle. Just what could be achieved if cannabis could be genetically modified? Who would have the cash to do such a thing…and why? The first people I expect to create GM cannabis are the pharmaceutical companies, they have the cash to make it happen. They are on the crest of a wave as medical marijuana begins to enter mainstream medicine. At the moment this market has an annual value worth just tens of millions but it will grow exponentially, in a few years I expect the pharmaceutical market for cannabis medicines will be worth literally billions as cannabis starts finding its way into mainstream treatment for pain relief, MS, epilepsy, sleep problems, depression, cancer treatment etc etc. GM cannabis could be created to grow into large ‘tree’ style plants that may be able to yield insane harvest quantities perhaps over several years. The mind boggles. Yet realistically GM cannabis will be tried if, and when, the pharmaceutical companies start realising the true financial pharmaceutical potential for ganja. Mazar, grown outdoors in soil filled containers in the Czech Republic from 20th April to 15th November 2010 using feminised seed. Superb specimens. Can genetically modified weed be any better than the natural version? I also suspect that by manipulating individual genes and specific parts of the plant DNA, cannabis could be genetically modified in a way which would selectively favour production of certaincannabinoid compounds. Natural marijuana produces over 85 different cannabinoid compounds of which THC is the most abundant. Cannabinoids are the only compounds that work in conjunction with the human cannabinoid receptors. Sooner or later people will understand the precise role of each of the cannabinoid family and that will allow a second generation of cannabis medicines to be created. These they will use selective groups of cannabinoids or even individual ones, for highly specific medical purposes. Certain medicines may be more effective with plenty of cannabinoid CBN and CBD enrichment, who knows. Perhaps they will remove the THC so you can’t get a pleasant buzz from it. The pharmaceutical companies will feel they have to convince

everyone that the benefits of their particular marijuana medicine can’t be achieved with normal weed. Some of the drug companies will shy away from involvement fearing that medical marijuana may actually cut company profits as it eats into existing premium-priced medicine markets. But ignoring a new emerging market is never a smart way to deal with it in a free market economy. Sooner or later someone will exploit and dominate the medical marijuana market so it may as well be us’, the pharma companies will conclude. By embracing medical marijuana they can grow their own raw materials and use the various active ingredients in different combinations for different medicines. It is the ultimate business model, one raw ingredient that is easy and cheap to farm and multiple medical products, all with very few costs. The pharmaceutical companies will invest heavily to genetically engineer a cannabis strain that yields ultra high levels of the whole spectrum of cannabinoid chemicals. The aim will be to extract and isolate them into individual cannabinoids on an industrial scale using thousands of tons of bud. Once individual cannabinoids are isolated I expect they will find their way into pills for very specific medical purposes. This is the best way for pharma companies to remove the ‘threat’ of homegrown weed, they will simply say that their preparations are more effective because they are more sophisticated. Of course not everyone will believe them, but they will become rich enough anyway. Perhaps a few seeds or cuttings of these GM strains will find their way back to Amsterdam…..just imagine the great hybrid strains! In the meantime the traditional cannabis seed breeders will continue to make the most useful contributions to the medical marijuana movement by working with grow cooperatives. I am personally sure all marijuana is medically effective, yet there are some strains that are often better known by the medical marijuana users. In Dutch Passions case, it is often strains like Ortega, Mazar, Strawberry Cough which are perhaps mentioned most frequently by med users. So perhaps we will see genetically modified cannabis in the nottoo-distant future. I think it will take 5 years before they build up the courage to announce plans to try it, and another 5 years before they show us the results. I am sure the medical marijuana movement will be involved in a very big way, but have you ever wondered what the implications and experiences might be for the recreational stoner? Could GM cannabis give you radically different weed to that which we enjoy today? Maybe weed that doesn’t stink when you grow it, or weed with a quite different buzz? As crazy as these questions seem, I reckon one day very soon they will be asked for real. - From Dutch Joe

Is an Early

Window of Opportunity Closing for Medical Marijuana Investors? by ANNE HOLLAND

Investment opportunities in the medical cannabis industry abound – but interested parties had better move quickly. That theme echoed through several speakers’ presentations to more than 115 investors and cannabis entrepreneurs packed into a SOHO–area penthouse in Manhattan yesterday evening at MMJ Business Daily’s first quarterly New York Seminar for Investors and Entrepreneurs. “I was in New York looking for major investors two years ago,” said one of the speakers, Tripp Keber, director of Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA). “Nobody would invest. The fact that all the seats in this room are filled, and you even sold out standing room-only tickets, is both ironic and incredibly heartening.” Today, Medical Marijuana Inc. is booming despite the previous lack of investor interest, with fourth- quarter 2012 revenues surging 1,100% from the same period a year earlier. Speaker Jessica Billingsley, co-founder of MJ Freeway Software Solutions, also noted she and her partners had spent a great deal of time in the past seeking private equity, only to be turned down. In fact, she labeled it one of their biggest mistakes. “We should have put that time instead into focusing on growing our business,” she said. MJ Freeway wound up turning to private connections for bridge loans. Now her company is profitable and the political climate is more favorable – and those same equity firms are calling saying they’re ready to invest in return for some equity. “Well, we don’t need them now,” Billingsley siad. In fact, she and her partners have joined an MMJ angel funding group as investors themselves to back more companies in the industry. Speaker Erik Williams, president of the Connecticut Medical

Cannabis Business Alliance, warned investors in the crowd that they could miss out on huge opportunities if at least a few banks have a change of heart and start funding MMJ companies, which he thinks may be imminent. “If we can get bank loans, hey, we’re a heavy cash flow business. We won’t give up equity anymore.” Several attendees echoed Williams’ reading of the bank situation, saying some financial institutions could consider entering or reentering the market – possibly even this year – although no one could point to a bank in particular. 280E (or “280Eeeeek” as Williams called it) was also a frequently mentioned concern. This tax code, which the IRS has used as a weapon to penalize state-licensed medical marijuana producers and dispensaries, disallows all business cost deductions that are allowed to all non-cannabis businesses. That doesn’t mean Williams is against legitimate taxation, especially on the state level as a political tool to safeguard the industry’s continued legality. “We’re the only industry that’s begging to be taxed,” he said. “Once they get that needle in their vein, they’ll never want to cut it off.” Keber noted that current federal regulations against cannabis are not only hurting the US because his company’s CBD-infused products rely on imported hemp extracts, but also because hundreds of millions of dollars that US entrepreneurs could be making is instead finding its way into the hands of Mexican cartels, with their associated violence. “When you’re investing in a marijuana business, you’re investing in America,” Keber noted in a comment that brought the house down.


TAX, and TAX AGAIN FREE-THE-WEED campaigners speak not of “legalizing” marijuana but of “taxing and regulating” it. True to their word, the ballot measure they placed before Colorado’s voters last November, which won the support of 55% of them, was called the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act and contained provisions for a 15% excise tax. Now that the law is taking shape, the signs are that one of the world’s first fully legal marijuana markets (Washington state also backed legalization) will have all the taxes and rules anyone could have wished for. Soon after Colorado’s law was passed John Hickenlooper, the governor, appointed a task-force to produce a set of proposals for its implementation. The 24-member group concluded its hearings on February 28th and will formally issue its findings to lawmakers next week. A bill should be passed by early May. In what its co-chair, Jack Finlaw, calls “a crazy couple of months”, the task-force rattled through dozens of issues. Many of its ideas are straightforward enough: rules on labeling, restrictions on advertising and provisions to protect youngsters. Non-residents should be allowed to buy weed, though in smaller amounts than locals. Joe Megyesy, a pro-legalization lobbyist, calls the proposals “thoughtful and responsible”. But they add up to a far more restrictive market than exists for alcohol. Most importantly, the group wants to maintain, for three years, the “vertical integration” model that has governed Colorado’s medicalmarijuana industry. Under this system retailers must grow at least 70% of the dope they sell. This forces license-holders to master a suite of skills from cultivation to distribution. The task-force also suggests that for the law’s first year, only established medical-marijuana dispensaries should be granted retail licenses. Some campaigners mutter about protectionism, though grudgingly admit that dispensaries deserve some reward for their pioneering (and risky) work. Mr Finlaw admits that vertical integration makes it hard to apply the excise tax: license-holders will have an incentive to undervalue their product. That may help explain another proposal: to slap a tax on marijuana sales, on top of existing state and local sales taxes and the proposed excise tax. No figure will be presented to the legislature, but an “example” of 25% was floated in hearings. Regulators say they need the funds to enforce their rules. But set taxes too high, fear campaigners, and you leave the illegal market in place, which destroys one of the principal purposes of legalization

in the first place. Either way, any new taxes will have to be approved again by Colorado’s voters, probably in November. Over-tight rules create opportunities for rent-seeking and cozy relationships between the industry and regulators. But Colorado’s legislators must perform a balancing act, because they are being watched by the federal government. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law, and should Barack Obama’s administration decide to crack down, as it has done in some medical-marijuana states, the work of the task-force would rapidly come undone. In December Eric Holder, the attorney-general, said the Department of Justice would issue its response to the votes in Colorado and Washington “relatively soon”; on February 26th he upgraded that forecast to “soon”. Some members of the prohibition industry are running out of patience. On March 5th the president of the International Narcotics Control Board, an arm of the UN, said that marijuana legalization in America violated international treaties and threatened public health. Hours later, eight former heads of the Drug Enforcement Administration, which has led America’s drug war for decades, expressed alarm that federal laws were not being enforced. One predicted that stoned drivers would leave roads “littered with fatalities”. Cooler heads have prevailed in Colorado, at least for now. As the task-force wrapped up its work Mr Hickenlooper, a legalization skeptic, told members that although he feared the unforeseen consequences of Amendment 64, he acknowledged the need for pragmatism. With luck, his attitude may prove infectious.

Tommy Chong

A Conversation With

by TINY MARTINEZ

I remember smoking my first joint, I went into my bedroom and locked my door so my mom wouldn’t bust me. If she walked in on me, I was going to be in some serious trouble so I grabbed my earphones so I wouldn’t hear a thing. I was about to experience a part of life that many people considered completely taboo, especially for someone my age. I find it interesting that, not long ago, Marijuana was viewed as evil and wrong and if you happened to be listening to a comedian that talked about it, you might as well have been watching porn behind closed doors. But, though it was wrong to many, there were people who were not afraid to let everyone know that they smoked that evil weed. And there were a couple of men who were ready to share their brand of counter culture humor all over the world. Enter the Godfathers of stoner comedy. By the time I was actually old enough to have my own albums of the greatest comedy duo ever, people were listening to CD’s instead of albums, and my great duo had already broke up so they weren’t making anything new. All hope of ever seeing my favorite comedy team together had disappeared. Or had it? It was 2009 when the world heard that the great Cheech and Chong would be touring together again. They had started a movement in their day that has carried over to this day and age and it was time to unleash their stoner charm on a whole new generation of followers that were not afraid to tell the world that they smoked weed. And they also brought back a following of the older generation that reignited their fire for change in the nation. I recently got a chance and the honor to talk on the phone with Mr. Chong. We spoke of many things including the waves that Colorado is making that’s causing a ripple effect worldwide and what’s going on in the movement as a whole and what changes still need to be made. ”Colorado is paving the way for change in our country.You guys are on the right path to true freedom as long as you can get past the harsh conservatives. But you also got to keep in 42 |

mind that Colorado is but one battleground and this war is far from over. We need to continue to fight hard and be ready for the next battle, wherever that may be.” I did my best to avoid talking about the already way over publicized prison subject and decided to ask, instead, about his recent battle with cancer. And much to my amazement, he was really eager to discuss the issue. ‘When I first found out, I sat down with my doctors and discussed all my options. After hearing all the bullshit they had to say, I made the logical choice to use only Cannabis oil and no other conventional methods for my treatment.” It’s been a couple years since he first received the diagnosis so I was anxious to ask him how his health was doing. “Oh man, I don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon. I had a visit about a month ago and they’re telling me now that they can’t find any cancer in this old man!”replied the more than happy 75-year-old comedian that refuses to quit. He actually had a busy day ahead of him so I didn’t want to take too much of his time. But before hanging up with my childhood hero, I invited him to the upcoming Denver 4/20 Rally. Unfortunately, he said he would not be able to make it this year but had this message for everyone. “I want to send my best wishes for a greater future for Colorado and congratulations on your achievements as of yet. I would love to be there with you guys but someone else booked me before you guys passed your law. I hope everyone has a Happy 4/20 and an awesome stoner holiday season. Keep up the good work. And I’ll do my best to be there next year!” I recently downloaded the newest Cheech And Chong album and listened in the dark just like old times. While I listened and laughed, a bittersweet feeling overcame me. It was the knowledge that while I had this new album, it was still a digital copy. It wasn’t really an album. I pulled out my still wrapped copy of Big Bamboo with the big rolling paper inside and began to reminisce. I guess the bright side is that they’re still here and they’re still smokin’!

Shatters, Butters and Wax, Oh My!

What’s the Difference? Shatter

Butter

Wax

Shatters, butters, and waxes are the three most commonly sold and ingested forms of concentrated cannabis. There are many different processes that people use to make these highly potent extracts. Some methods use butane and can be very dangerous for inexperienced hash makers to make so it is best to leave it to the professionals or, at the very least be sure to really do your research before trying on your own and never blast indoors. Other methods of extraction include blasting C02 through the leafy material to freeze and separate the trichomes. Another safe method uses dry ice and water: you break up the buds into the cold water and agitate to get the trichomes to break away from the leaves and then you filter out all the leafy material leaving you with highly potent hash. Yet another way to extract these concentrates use isopropyl alcohol in which the alcohol is poured through the leafy material and filtered. At the end of the day it all comes down to how you finish the filtering and purging process that leads you to either a Shatter, a Butter or a Wax. Many have come to agree that Shatters are typically the purest and cleanest form of the highly potent concentrates. If you filter out absolutely every bit of leafy material and have purged out all the chemical solvents used to extract the hash you will likely end up with a translucent concentrate that will shatter into tiny pieces when stuck with your dabber but will turn to taffy when warmth is applied. Butters (or “Budders”) are made by whipping the extract during the purging processes. Many of the extraction methods use heat in the final step to cook off the remaining chemical solvents. During this time some hash makers whip the goopy goodness while it’s being heated. Whipping the concentrate adds air into it making it start to froth up and become more of a solid as it starts to cool. Waxes have been said to be failed Butters; this is said mostly because of the end heating process: There is a fair amount of timing that goes into getting the concentrate to the right temperature to fully purge out all the chemicals.

REVIEW: JILLY BEAN FROM BURNZWELL Strain: JillyBean Dispensary: Burnzwell Lineage: Orange Velvet x Space Queen Profile: Mostly Indica Breeder: TGA Subcool

Jilly Bean is a taster’s choice bud, the kind you smoke for the exotic flavor (with extra points if you are reminded of Easter basket candy). The hybrid combines the tangy cream of Orange Skunk--technically, Orange Velvet--and Space Queen, a fruity descendant of Romulan and C99, to produce a delicious and thick morsel that grinds like a pink jelly bean. Our sample from Burnzwell was bright green with fiery neon hairs and large calyxes. The thick, well-cured nugs found a perfect balance between fluffiness and density. Ground, the JB erupted like a gooey gumdrop, with an aroma disputed between mango and plum. The grind and burn revealed additional floral tones, and even the smoke was aromatically pleasant. Our first hit struck first in the face and neck, inducing a major swallowing reflex. The focus remained intact, as a calm settled in. But critics were still energetic enough to enjoy the growing cerebral impairment, which only tripled with a second puff.

One critic reported that after only 15 minutes, walking was “awkward” and that he had to “second-guess” every step for a while. Indeed, motor skills went downhill for most of us, some for the entire afternoon. Seasoned veterans may remain somewhat functional, but all other patients should avoid large doses until duty-free evenings or over the weekend. Forgetfulness and self-introspection increased, as did mood elevation--but be warned that negative moods or feelings can become enhanced as well. One critic was sentimental and full of hugs, while another moped about an unfinished to-do list. That said, the possibilities are great for sunny day errands, but potentially depressing on rainy days. Jilly B also makes for a great road-tripping strain, adding warmth to landscapes and casual conversation. For 3+ hours we enjoyed the effects, with hopes to return for more. She was a perfect combination of taste and unique Subcool styling, without the embarrassing nuttiness and zone-out. - From the CannaCritics
