colorado’s premier cannabis lifestyle magazine

ello Kush readers,

Earlier this month, Kush Magazine and hosted the largest Cannabis Convention ever on April 2 & 3rd at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver. 300 vendors and thousands of consumers, advocates, medical marijuana patients, legislators, doctors, lawyers and those who were just plain curious enjoyed two days of cannabis related information, music, activities and festivities. Cypress Hill joined us with a meet and greet, signing autographs and promoting their newest album Rise Up being released on 4/20 (of course!). In the month that we celebrate both 420 and Earth Day, the Colorado cannabis community gathered to learn more about, and share good times with their fellow advocates. At a time when medical marijuana laws and outright legalization laws are being adopted, discussed or drafted by states, counties and cities throughout the United States, it is apparent that the movement is growing and is definitely here to stay.

Kush Magazine and continues to promote and support the cannabis lifestyle by providing both print and online resources for owners, consumers, medical providers and patients to learn about cannabis and what is happening both in their own community, city, state or nationwide. It is our intention and goal to blaze forward, representing the voice of the cannabis and medical marijuana community.

Marijuana use is much more that the stereotypical stoner sitting around and getting high. Events like a cannabis convention or a celebration of 420 bring the community together. People of different walks of life, with different experiences or reasons for using cannabis all meld together with one common goal – and that is to rid the irrational and long standing and misconceived reputation that marijuana and users of marijuana have endured for decades. Movements such as Norml, Safer Colorado, Sensible Colorado, Colorado Wellness Association and many more that have been established to educate the public about cannabis, are evidence that marijuana use is much more that the stereotypical stoner sitting around and getting high. So, this month when you gather around to celebrate 420, remember to act responsibly and celebrate the progress that the cannabis movement has made and will continue to make with supporters like you.

An obligatory trip to your favorite dispensary: This seems like a no brainer, I know. That’s why it’s number 10 on this list. But given this day in age where this reality is growing in popularity, wouldn’t you be doing yourself a great dis-service if you didn’t. Besides, have you really tried every strain that your favorite proprietor carries? 10 kush

Greensky Bluegrass: Cervantes’ Other Side… formerly Quixote’s. I’m sure that a few spinning hippies and patchouli oil go a long way with most people. That being said, there will be few places in Denver with a higher stoner population, per capita. Greensky Bluegrass promises to bring the bluegrass with the help of opening act, “The Gristle Gals” at 9pm. Tickets are $20 at the door. Roller Doll Spring Tryouts: Do any of you girls out there think you have the toughness and tenacity to be a “Roller Doll”? Yes, I’m talkin’ Roller Derby here. Head on down to the Wagon Wheel Skate Center from 7-9pm to check out the try-outs for this “no holds barred” group of hard core roller derby girls. Skate rentals are available for the tryouts. And what for the guys? Really? What’s better than getting all spliffed out and watching Roller Girls… ‘nuff said. To RSVP, email

New Talent Night at Comedy Works 8:00pm : The Comedy Works in Lodo is a legendary venue for comics big and small. You might see the next big thing, and you might see an epic bombing of an unknown talent. Cover charge is $10 and there’s a two drink minimum. Show up all blazed, and you might end up being the heckler that breaks the career for an up and coming comic. Now, that’s good times.

Byron Shaw Projex at Jazz@ Jack’s 8pm. “The First School of Funk” is a feature hosted by KUVO’s Skip “The Funktologist”… Denver’s foremost expert on all things funk. Former leader of “Judge Jonez” and “Judge Roughneck”, Byron Shaw has been rocking his brand of R&B/ Salsa/Jazz for many years throughout the region. This one is guaranteed to burn the house down.

420 Celebration CU Boulder campus: This yearly gathering is something that has been fostered, unwillingly, by campus officials. What started as a modest gathering of potheads, was escalated when campus officials sent out a campus wide mailer encouraging students NOT to participate... I couldn’t think of better advertisement myself. a-short-history-of-420-in-boulder.html

Eat at the Ganja-Gourmet: Denver’s first MMJ dispensary/ restaurant is selling amazing and innovative culinary “adventures”. Ganja-Gourmet is celebrating the obvious alternative to smoking by offering medicated meals for dine-in and take-out. They advertise a dinner special that offers and entree, desert, and a joint for $30. That’s some serious buzz for your buck. 12 kush

The US Air Guitar Championship (Denver Regional): Theater 8pm


Who hasn’t thrown down a Pete Townshend style Air Guitar at some point in their lives? Bill and Ted, eat your hearts out. Now is the time to unleash the Air Guitar Hero that’s been hiding in your closet since you bought your first KISS album. This is Denver’s regional competition that qualifies you for the US finals. If you have what it takes to win nationals, you will represent your country at the World Championship in Oulu, Finland. Registration is $20... $16 if you just want to watch. Mark Knopfler: Dire Straits front man, Mark Knopfler, is playing the Temple Buell Theater at 8:00pm. The “finger style” axe man brings his unique brand of British blues to Denver during the first half of his North American tour. From Bob Dylan to Sting in the rock genre and Chet Atkins to Emmylou Harris in the country genre, Mr. Knopfler has spent 35 years working with popular music’s most successful artists. This multi Grammy Award winner is truly one of pop music’s more diversely talented figures. Pot Rally: Every year, grass revelers around the state gather in Civic Center Park to celebrate one of the finest gifts that Mother Nature has to offer. In the mid to late 1990’s Medicinal Marijuana activist and political hopeful, Ken Gorman hosted the first, then monthly hemp rallies during the summers, to help raise awareness to the benefits of marijuana as well as hemp based products. Unfortunately, Mr. Gorman was tragically murdered by a still unknown assailant, in his home, on Feb. 17 2008. Luckily for us, we can all celebrate in his memory starting at 10am. Don’t forget about the afterrally party at Casselman’s Bar at 2620 Walnut St.

earth day This Earth Day, there are many ways to celebrate the environment and do something good for yourself and your community. Here are a few ideas: Contact your local Sierra Club or other environmental agency and take part in community tree planting or area cleanup.

two holidays One Greater Good Happy 4:20 & Earth Day! by CHARLOTTE CRUZ April 20th and 22nd are two of the most important days in many of our readers’ lives. If you’re not familiar, April 20th might as well be called Ganja Day. The 4:20 connection to the calendar has turned into a national celebration of peace, love and kind bud. I realized last year that I received more well-wishes on 4/20/09 than I did on my birthday. Birthdays are pleasant, but 4/20 is special. Perhaps even more importantly is Earth Day—a day to embrace your inner activist, do something kind towards the planet and hopefully bring about habits that last throughout the year. Earth Day was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson (D-Wisconsin) as an environmental teach-in in 1970 and is celebrated in many countries every year. The first Earth Day was in 1970. Earth Day is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. The United Nations celebrates Earth Day each year on the spring equinox, which is often 20 March. This is a tradition which was founded by peace activist John McConnell in 1969. The United Nations first celebrated Earth Day on the spring equinox in 1971. This was also the first time ever that the United Nations celebrated Earth Day. The first Earth Day on the spring equinox was also in 1970.

Plant trees and other foliage around your home. Plants and flowers give off carbon dioxide, clean the air and add beauty to every situation. Keep your car in the garage. Springtime is a wonderful time to explore by foot or bicycle. Reduce your carbon footprint and get some fresh air and exercise. Everybody wins! Get a group together and pick a spot to “green up”. Find a park that needs attention and plant something, donate a recycling can or pick up garbage. Vow to use only recycled water for things like washing your car. Local do-it-yourself car washes recycle water. Filter your own water instead of buying plastic bottles. Out of the 50 billion bottles of water being bought each year, 80% end up in a landfill, even though recycling programs exist. 17 million barrels of oil are used in producing bottled water each year. Bottled water costs 1,000 times more than tap water. Drinking 2 Liters of tap water a day only costs 50 cents per year. If you are in the market for a new car, seriously consider hybrid technology. The automobile makers have come a long way in their designs, so it’s no longer necessary to drive a green car that looks like a ride at Disneyland.

United Nations secretary-general Kurt Waldheim observed Earth Day with ceremonies on the March equinox in 1972, and the United Nations Earth Day ceremony has continued each year since on the day of the March equinox (the United Nations also works with organizers of the April 22 global event). Margaret Mead added her support for the equinox Earth Day, and in 1978 declared: “Earth Day the first holy day which transcends all national borders, yet preserves all geographical integrities, spans mountains and oceans and time belts, and yet brings people all over the world into one resonating accord, is devoted to the preservation of the harmony in nature and yet draws upon the triumphs of technology, the measurement of time, and instantaneous communication through space.� Today, many communities organize Earth Day events that may include beach cleanups, tree-planting, bike-to-work incentives and recycling programs that go beyond the typical trash day efforts. We know that being green means not only saving the planet but saving money. Last year I switched out all of my regular light bulbs with CFL bulbs and my electric bill decreased by 25%. Planting shade trees can help eliminate the need for air conditioners and solar power is the ultimate way to use nature to power your home.

For all of you budding Green Thumb’s out there, tricking your plants into thinking that it’s a bright sunny day has gotten easier and more efficient than ever. Whether you’re dealing with a small closet set up, or running a multiple room operation, proper lighting is a key cornerstone to a successful harvest. COMPACT FLUORESCENT lights are purposeful for young plants or seedlings, but are not powerful or efficient enough to take your growth to the next level. They are great to have in these early stages of growth, or if you’re setting up a cloning operation, but for the latter stages of any substantial indoor grow room, the need for (HID) will help in your effort to garner a fuller crop. Don’t discard all your fluorescents though. They do provide great supplemental light for your primary HID’s too. HIGH INTENSITY DISCHARGE LAMPS are the most popular type of lighting system. Requiring a Ballast much like the less efficient fluorescents, HID’s take about ten minutes to produce the electric arc which provides the light. Because of this intense light, and the ability to stay lit for many hours at a time, they are the perfect fit for vegetation seeking as many as 12 hours of light per day.

Their efficiency compared to incandescent lamps is huge - up to 75%-90% energy savings, making this choice a no brainer. Not only are you being efficient, you’re keeping your Edison bill within reason. HID’s fit into any number of different reflectors, and come in many different intensities and wattages. KUSH MAG SUGGEST THAT YOU SEEK OUT SOME ADVICE AT YOUR LOCAL HYDRO SHOP, all of which should be able to guide you down the right path for your particular wants and needs. Keep in mind that for a plant, light is what makes it grow. Yes there are nutrients and other parts to this science, but in this instance, light equates to food. Everything else we provide the plant with is just a means to allow the plant to digest and use the light. It’s important to know that with increased growth, a plant will need an increasing amount of light. If depleted of the proper light, the plant will have a tendency to stretch, and eventually growth will slow to a halt, thus killing your little baby. Don’t kill your little babies. SEEK HELP TO PREVENT THIS!!! Save yourself time, money, and the bitter tears of dissapointment, and be prepared with the proper tools for your indoor growth, and everything should end up fruitful. It’s important to remember that your lighting system can be your best friend and your worst enemy in your efforts to become Dr. Green Thumb. If you’ve sought out the right advice, and have an understanding of how much and how often your plants need light, than your probability for success just increased ten fold.

Good luck, and happy growing!! kush 25

by JOSH KAPLAN It seems strangely fitting that The Beatles’ Abbey Road album was just starting to bud in April,1969. In this important year that saw such notable moments as the moon landing, Woodstock, and the horrors of Vietnam, it was a time of change politically, socially, and in this case musically. Spring quickly became the “Summer of Love“, and by it’s release in the Fall, Abbey Road shot to #1 in the U.K. and has since sold over 12 million copies in the U.S alone. Sadly, Abbey Road essentially became The Beatles’ last recorded album (Let It Be was released in 1970, but recorded in early ‘69). With this being their 11th studio album, it found the four lads from Liverpool in a state of indifference, one that thankfully for the sake of this masterful album, was put aside. With such great songs as “Come Together”, “I Want You” (She’s so Heavy), the Harrison penned “Here Comes The Sun”, and the collision of brilliance known as the “Sun King Medley”, it’s as though Abbey Road marked the end of The Beatles’ cycle - it’s last beautiful bloom. It’s evident even in the famous album art, depicting the fab four walking across the zebra-striped crosswalk in London. After nixing the idea to name the album Everest, and thus saving the boys a dreaded trip up to the famed Himalayan mountaintop, they decided on April 8th to step outside Abbey Road studios for a quick photo shoot. Given only ten minutes to take the perfect shot, photographer Iain Macmillan found what he was looking for. 26 kush

A very stiff Lennon is in front wearing his white suit, as though walking towards the famous “Bed In For Peace” which soon followed. Yoko had already sunk her teeth in by this time. Ringo is all business in his black suit, while out of step and shoeless Paul is strutting across while smoking, possibly thinking about the future Wings’ tour. George, while bringing up the back, looks and probably was the most relaxed of thve bunch. His casual denim outfit and long hair depicts a man who was at one with himself, and finally being noticed as a brilliant song-writer. With “Something” being Harrison’s first A-side single, and the popularity of “Here Comes The Sun”, Harrison may have been feeling the sweet taste of long awaited recognition? It must have been tough to have songwriters like Lennon and McCartney to compete with. As we all know, with Spring comes change, and change is good. In a time when change was taking place at every turn, The Beatles were able to take the high road, and for the sake of the music, put their conflicts aside. What was produced remains a classic amongst rock‘n’roll fans worldwide. The songs and imagery from Abbey Road were a sign of things to come. The Beatles were always able to capture the feeling of the times, and as great as the times and the music of The Beatles were (and still are), the change that was about to take place in their lives, was just as simple as crossing the street.

More serious risks include weight gain, depression, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Sleep is one of the keys to being physically and emotionally healthy and without it, the simplest tasks can become our greatest challenges. There are many ways to combat insomnia and many of those ways involve taking a “sleeping pill”. For example, the very popular zolpidem drugs (Ambien, Hypnogen, Damixan, Somidem and others) has made its way into the press on more than one occasion, from Tiger Woods’s texts to suicides to senator’s crashing their cars. According to manufacturers, the side effects of these drugs may include: Diarrhea; dizziness; drowsiness (including daytime drowsiness); “drugged” feeling; dry mouth; headache; nausea; nose or throat irritation; sluggishness; stomach upset; severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the 28 kush

shortness of breath; suicidal thoughts or actions; vision changes. While everyone is entitled to a good night’s sleep, it seems that in the case of using zolpidem to treat insomnia, the cure maybe worse than the disease. There are several homeopathic and natural ways to deal with insomnia and staying active during the day, eating healthy foods, acupuncture and yoga help immensely. Herbs like chamomile and kava kava have proven to work wonders for the weary, but by far one of the most effective uses of a plant to battle sleeplessness is a good, strong, indica strain of cannabis. Cannabis indica produces a tranquil slumber, relieves the nervousness and neuralgic pains and helps sleep patterns stabilize. It can help relieve muscle pain, stiffness and nausea—all factors that may keep you awake. So speak with your doctor or the staff at your collective to learn about how you can rest easier using cannabis therapy. Be well.

These small quaint ski towns are a good first stop in your trip. Summit County is known as “Colorado’s Playground” because of all of the outdoor activities available. Take the lift up 12,500 ft in Breckenridge for mind-blowing views. In the warmer months, Summit County is an awesome place for hiking, kayaking, rafting, fishing and backroading. If you stop in Vail, try mountain biking. As the host of two previous Mountain Bike World Championships, Vail’s trails suit the amateur and the seasoned professional. Cruisers can ride the gondola, explore the forests on two wheels and hit the mountain barbeque at the top. Downhill junkies can ride uphill then seek out the most technical terrain for descending. Equipment is available for rental or purchase at local shops. Summit County warning: The outlet shopping in Silverthorne can lure you in to hours of designerlabel bargain hunting, so plan accordingly! 34 kush

These blips on the map are good places to stop for a quick snack; or if you are into bird watching, a great place to snap some pictures. Look along the river and in the trees for golden eagles, bald eagles and hawks. The quaintness of these towns is their allure and the scenery is unobstructed by tourism or population. Make sure you are camera-ready at this point; the magnificent Glenwood Canyon is coming up next.

The drive west to Glenwood Springs is as magical as the town itself, which is a snapshot right out of the old west. The Glenwood Canyon runs alongside the Colorado River, where some of the best whitewater rafting spots rage next to a timeless train track. The canyon is widely considered one of the most scenic national features on the Interstate Highway Systems. With stunning Mt. Sopris as the backdrop, Glenwood (as the locals say) is a jewel of the Roaring Fork Valley. The world famous Hot Springs Pool, the largest natural hot springs pool in the world, exists beside the highway. Visitors can soak in the therapy pool (104 degrees) or swim in the huge 9093 degree swimming pool or play in the small children’s pool. The water is full of salty minerals. The Hot Springs Pool is the marquee attraction in Glenwood Springs. It includes 2 outdoor waterslides. It has a similar ideal as the Roman Baths in HYPERLINK “http://” Baden-Baden, HYPERLINK “” Germany. It is very good for the skin so lots of senior residents go there but is still recommended for kids, adults and teens. This great little trip is a must-do for anyone and the timing is perfect. We live in a beautiful place. Now go out there and enjoy it! kush 35

by NOELLE LEAVITT Students at college campuses across the nation, including nine in Colorado, rallied on behalf of legalizing marijuana on April 1, stating that it’s a more responsible alternative to alcohol. A small group of students at Auraria Campus in Denver gathered in the main courtyard to hear medical marijuana proponents from SAFER Colorado (Safer Alternative for Enjoyable Recreation), talk about why pot should be legalized. SAFER is a non-profit organization that promotes the use of ganja in place of alcohol. “I think it’s a really good cause. My mother was an alcoholic when I was growing up, so I know first hand the effects it can have on a family,” said Tarsha Vigil, a junior at Metropolitan State College of Denver. “With marijuana, you can’t consume so much that you want to hit someone. You’re either hungry, happy or sleepy.”

message seemed really interested and asked a lot of questions. “It seemed pretty successful,” Groton said. The organization also sent each campus a copy of the book, “Marijuana Is Safer: So Why Are We Driving People to Drink?” — coauthored by SAFER Executive Director Mason Tvert, who was at Auraria Campus, asking students to support his initiative. Although the crowd was small, roughly 25 people, Mason didn’t divert. “It’s really about getting the message out. The point here is to get this debate going. A lot of students fear coming out and supporting this because it’s illegal,” Tvert told Kush Magazine. After talking about the positive benefits of cannabis, Tvert and

“We’ve been working for the last couple of months to see if campuses were interested and see if they responded, and then we packaged up fliers and sent them,” said Sara Groton, a student at Denver University who currently interns for SAFER, adding that most students at Denver University who took time to hear SAFER’s

presence on campus and believes in their message about using pot instead of booze. “There’s no danger aspect. It makes you happy,” Green said.

Among the many uses facilitated by the Hemp plant, there has always been a certain group that wears it on their sleeve. Anyone who has attended a Grateful Dead concert, or any other popular jam band, has probably seen these garments. Whether


it be the quilt-like pants and shirts, or the duffle bags or stash cases - any respectable Shakedown St. should have such articles for sale. It’s no surprise than, that with the latest boom in 420 friendly states succumbing to this tolerant point in history, that the hippies that have been making these products on tour, would eventually find a legitimate place within our present commerce. Started in 1996 by a mother and daughter team, Hemp Sisters has since been sold to the one-man team of Ed Edmundson. Taking what the sisters started, and making it an ever-growing entity, the line of products offered includes everything from clothes, bags, wallets, hats, soap, lip-balm, skin care, hammocks, jewelry, twine, and chord - as well as a whole separate line of products under the newly named Earth Divas, using recycled silk, felt wool, cotton, and recycled rice bags. “Earth Divas” which will soon replace the name of the whole line, consists of handmade, natural fiber, fair trade accessories made by women’s co-ops from around the world. Using no middleman, the Earth Divas work directly with the people that make the items. With all the virtues of this amazing plant, it’s no wonder that there are people out there with the sensibilities to make viable products out of Hemp. Being that it’s warmer, more absorbent, and three times stronger than cotton, and is the oldest cultivated fiber plant, with a history of use in textiles and fabrics dating as far back as 8000 BC, why wouldn’t you take a look at these products?

reen took on a whole new meaning in Colorado when the nation’s largest cannabis convention hit Denver, April 2-3.  All eyes were on Colorado, as thousands flocked to the Colorado Convention Center to scope out the latest and greatest in the ganja world. Spectators lined up in front of the convention hall, anxious to get in prior to doors opening.   “I’m actually a part of a team of doctors and nurses, that provide significant patient care and healing and medical services,” said Dorie Cofer, general manager of The Healing Leaf of Denver. “For us this convention is really helpful because it puts us face to face with a lot of dispensaries. I think it’s a good idea legalizing marijuana, because instead of trying to keep it out, the government can make money off 46 kush

of it. I think it’s better than any other drugs because it’s not that bad, considering the addictive qualities of all the other drugs.” “I think we need to create a stronger voice together and create a stronger collaboration, everything from the ground up excites me,” Cofer said.   The main focus of the exuberant event was getting the message out that marijuana is here to stay. Hundreds of vendors from Colorado and across the world gathered to promote their products, which have created a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States.  “Wow, I thought it was awesome. So many people. I thought there were going to be a lot of people, but I didn’t think it was going to be this many,” said Antonio Adame, a construction worker in Denver. “I love smoking pot. I think it’s amazing that there are so many shops in such a small area showing what they have.”

The two day extravaganza had tons of events highlighted throughout the day, including Hemp Fashion shows, legislative town hall sessions with Congressman Jarel Polis, State Representative Joe Miklosi and Denver City Councilman Chris Nevit. There was a legal panel led by Rob Corry, Brian Vicente, Warren Edson and Lauren Davis. There was also a growing seminar medical information from Dr. Shackelford and Dr. Bob Melamede, who both discussed the benefits of marijuana on the brain and in treating various ailments. An A-list of band performances including Ali Pierre, The Samples, P-Nuckle, Sythetic Element, No One Left Standing and Sammy T kept were great crowd pleasers. The B-Boys danced at 4:20 on Saturday.   To top things off Cypress Hill showed up at 3:30 p.m., on Saturday, April 3, for a meet and greet with fans. Hundreds of fans stood in line for their chance to get face time with the popular

activist band that has long promoted the legalization of marijuana and are anxiously awaiting the release of their new album Rise Up which is being released on 4/20. One fan was so anxious to meet Cypress Hill that she had each band member sign her boobs. “That’s awesome. They signed my boobs. I don’t want to wash my chest ever,” said Denver resident Stephanie Whithorn.”Nobody famous has ever signed my chest.” “I think it’s really awesome that Cypress Hill is here. It’s a great band to represent this convention,” said Julia Leite. “This is a beautiful event. I think there’s a lot of diversity here. This brings all sorts of groups of people together: the conservatives, the old, the young.”  The event, hosted by Kush Magazine and was a sign of the strength of the cannabis movement in Colorado. kush 47

Hunter S. Thompson once said that, “Good people drink good beer”. Well hallelujah, man. Warm weather and beer go together like well, warm weather and beer. There’s nothing better than a few friends, a good brew and sunshine. Since spring is upon us and those days of sitting lakeside with your buddies is not far away, it’s a good time to focus on the “good beer”. Colorado has a rich history in exceptional brewing and so if you’re into the suds, you’re in the perfect place. In fact, did you know that Denver ranks first in the nation per capita in beer production? I’ll drink to that!

Agave Wheat Breckenridge Brewery Breckenridge’s Agave Wheat is a traditional wheat beer with an untraditional twist—agave. The agave plant, normally used to make tequila, adds a citrus kick without making the beer taste like a fruit beer. Since the agave isn’t as common a flavor as orange, raspberry or lemon, the delicate citrus twist is pleasant with out being overbearing. Try it with barbeque ribs and potato salad. 600 Main Street,Breckenridge, CO 80424 :: (970) 453-1550

Urca Vanilla Porter Dry Dock Brewing Company Consider the Urca Vanilla Porter a dessert. This rich, creamy brew seems to remind everyone of something. As soon as I smelled it, I was 8 years old and playing in the backyard with my father who loved cream soda. He was working on the cars and I was trying to like cream soda. It’s an acquired taste. Dry Dock boasts that they use over 2 pounds of Tahitian and Madagascar vanilla beans to brew this delight. Try it with a hot fudge sundae. 15120 E. Hampden Ave., Aurora, CO 80014 ::(303) 400-5606

Hanging Lake Honey Ale Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company Of all the beers on this list, the Hanging Lake Honey Ale from Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company is by far the most refreshing. This is a perfect spring or summertime brew. The secret is that they use locally produced honey. With its perfect balance of sweet and hoppy, this beer is so drinkable that you should buy a couple of growlers to go. This beer is made for a day on the water. Enjoy with wings and fruit salad. 402 7th Street, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601 ::(970) 945-1276

Skinny Dip New Belgium Brewing Company The most famous of Colorado microbreweries offers some of the best seasonal beers your taste buds will ever enjoy. Skinny dip smells like summer. The hint of lime makes the hops taste like a day on the beach. Try this full-bodied brew with Mexican food and a game of Frisbee golf. Skinny Dip is only available May, June and July, so get dippin! 500 Linden Street, Fort Collins, CO 80524 ::(970) 221-0524

Titan IPA Great Divide Brewing Company No beer list is complete without an IPA and the Titan from Great Divide is aptly named. This is a gargantuan beer with a big punch. According to Great Divide, “This aggressively hopped India Pale Ale brewed for hop disciples.” It starts out with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishes with a nice rich, malty sweetness that is balanced with crisp hop bitterness. Goes great with hot dogs and baked beans. 2201 Arapahoe Street, Denver, CO 80205 ::(303) 296-9460

Steam Engine Lager Steamworks Brewing Company The Steam Engine Lager is a fantastic American Amber. Hot and spicy with a dry, smooth finish, this beer is available yearlong, but take it on a camping trip and it will become a summertime favorite. Since Steamworks offers this beauty in 12 oz cans, there’s plenty of room in the cooler for steak and salad, which complement this lager perfectly. 801 East 2nd Avenue, Durango, CO 81301 ::(970) 259-9200

Make sure to check out the Great American Beer Festival in Denver late this summer. The festival is the largest domestic beer festival in the United States. Every September thousands of people descend on the Mile High City for tastings and entertainment. Throughout the event, hundreds of brewmasters compete for coveted medals in more than 58 categories. You’re sure to see these breweries there!

by NOELLE LEAVITT Cheesecakes, chocolates, hard candy and flavored drinks, to name a few, have hit the shelves of medical marijuana dispensaries, giving patients more options on how to medicate without damaging lung tissue. And we’re not talking about pot brownies that are made in a dope-smoking hippy’s house, we’re talking about high-grade edibles and drinks made in commercial kitchens throughout Colorado that are packaged, labled and sold to dispensaries across the state. “In the big picture, we fit in as an alternative way to medicate. We generally appeal to medical patients that generally don’t like to use inhalation products,” said Patrick Zimmerman, executive chef of The Farmacy, which produces marijuana-enhanced bottle drinks. Ganja edibles have given bakers and chefs an opportunity to master a whole new world of “feel good” foods for the community, and complying with health regulations is an important component for edible producers when it comes to sustaining a legitimate business in the perishable wholesale food industry. 60 kush

“I’m a chef. I’m constantly asked to fit into a regulatory system. We work hand in hand with the health department,” Zimmerman said. “Let’s use some common sense. Sanitation is important. Where you get your ingredients is important. In any restaurant, or catering company, you are responsible for your product.” And most dispensaries refused to buy edibles or drinks unless they are made in a commercial kitchen. “It makes sense. I don’t want to buy something that someone made out of their house if they have 10 dogs running around,” said Candace Gill, who works at Alameda Wellness Center in Denver. Alameda Wellness Center carries The Farmacy drinks, which are produced and packaged in a commercial kitchen based in Denver. Zimmerman and his team rents it out by the hour, along with several other bakers and chefs, to make the glass-bottled drink that comes in four different flavors: pomegranate, lemonaid, mint green tea and coffee. Another popular medical cannabis treat is cheesecake, and Jessica LeRoux has made quite a name for herself in ganja

cheesecake community. Most know her as the Cheesecake Lady. She owns and operates Twirling Hippies Confections. “I would say (in addition to cheesecake) I am known for my colorful fashion sense,” LeRoux said. “It’s a look I would have to describe as hippy fabulous.” LeRoux, who always wears a hat, runs her commercial kitchen out of a former Mexican food restaurant in Idaho Springs, that’s approximately 600-square-feet. She’s about to rent addtional space out of Denver to comply with a new ordinance set forth by the City and County of Denver that states all edible sold to dispensaries in the city and county must be produced within the city. “I operate as a wholesale to retail business.We are producing six flavors of cheesecakes, and everything is custom made to order every week,” LeRoux said, adding that she had to hire three new people since January to keep up with all the orders that have come in since the dispensary “freak out” happened in Colorado over the last six months. She employs a total of five, who are all medical marijuana patients, and she’s extremely proud of the booming marijuana business and how’s it’s contributed to the small-mountain town of Idaho Springs. Twirling Hippies Confections also makes ganja-based chocolates, and deliver their baked goods to dispensaries as far as Grand Junction. LeRoux let’s each dispensary owner set their own prices on her products as long as they are somewhat reasonable. Most sell for around $5. Aside from keeping up with orders, LeRoux’s biggest job is educating people on how to properly medicate themselves with edibles. “It’s all about your metabolism and your body fat. You start people off at the very minimum dose,” she said, noting that each

one of her bite-sized cheesecakes contain one gram of medical marijuana, which is cooked into her products with cannabis butter. “What you want to keep in mind is when you’re thinking about edibles, is that every single person is different,” LeRoux said, adding that she also makes vegan baked goods made from cannabis concentrated coconut oil instead of butter. “That’s something we’re still developing with our patient group. It’s hard to make a vegan product with a long shelf life.” Generally, butter-based cheesecake has an eight-day shelf life, while her chocolates have a three month shelf life. Although, LeRoux pointed out that some dispensaries that don’t get deliveries on a weekly basis will freeze the product to make it last longer.

by RYAN JAMES is a great way to enjoy the world that we live in. As travel becomes ever cheaper, we’re finding reasons other than vacation to rack up those frequent flier miles. Work, music, food, and sporting events have people exploring more of our world than ever before. While most of the travel logistics have gotten easier, the traveling pothead has a serious issue that most travelers don’t have to deal with… marijuana is illegal nearly everywhere in the country, and can be difficult to secure once you have reached your destination. Likewise, I most certainly recommend that you do not attempt to access a TSA security checkpoint with anything illegal. The solution? Travel to destinations where your meds can come to you. Simply traveling to a place where marijuana use is tolerated, isn’t always the best way to choose a travel destination. Unless you’ve found a killer heli-ski resort, burning one in Alaska isn’t

going to be at the top of most travel lists. However, Outdoor Music Festivals and Alternative Culture Events are the perfect targets. This article will feature some of the richest pot culture events to act as higher destinations within travel destinations. Music events are prime pot spots. They happen all year, all over the country. This is a great way for the business tripper to acquire some well needed product. There are a number of well known, well traveled jam bands that regularly tour nationally. These tours are virtual underground highways for product distribution. Bands like Jimmy Buffett, Dave Matthews Band The Allman Brothers, G-Love, George Clinton, and on-again/offagain Phish are often followed by hoards of grass smoking, road traveled hippies. Outdoor music festivals take the music event to the next level.

Rather than an event that simply lasts the evening, these festivals can take place over a number of days. Reminiscent of Woodstock and the Pop Festivals of the late 60’s, sporting stadiums and county fairgrounds are transformed into something more akin to a refugee camp rather than a vacation destination.

The Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival is an annual music festival that takes places outside of Nashville, TN in early June. Bonnaroo captures the spirit of the first outdoor festivals, making diversified music the focus of this event. Rarely will you find an event that attracts the likes of Dave Matthews, Stevie Wonder, Tori Amos, Jimmy Cliff, GWAR, Dropkick Murphy’s, and Jay-Z to the same venue. Bonnaroo represents everything that is great about the outdoor music festival.

Telluride Bluegrass Festival: Located in Telluride, CO. This bluegrass festival takes place the week after Bonnaroo, giving hard core spinning hippies little time to clean themselves up before another 3 day binge of pickin’ and grinin’. While other music festivals celebrate musical diversity, Grass-Fest has been featuring a blistering style of country bluegrass for the past 36 years.

South by Southwest is a music and multi-media festival that takes place in Austin, TX. This event not your typical outdoor music festival as it encompasses the local convention center as well as every available music venue in the area. As a result, this has eliminated the shanty-town aspect of most multi-day outdoor festival in favor of an urban interactive event that celebrates the future of music technology. Additionally, this festival has more of an ADD dynamic to it. Musical diversity welcomes lovers of different styles of music rather than a focus on a single musical subset. This four day event has taken on a life of it’s own as Austin’s largest revenue generating annual event.

Now, we come to the counter-culture festivals. These gatherings go far beyond the typical burning and boozing that you’ll find at other concerts and festivals. These events bring alternative forms of living to the forefront. Here, the Counterculture still reigns supreme.

Seattle Hempfest is a 3-day, Hemp themed festival in August that takes over the parks in the waterfront area of Seattle. Hempfest is largely a free event featuring music, comedy, cultural events, hemp advocate speakers, and local food vendors. However, you can donate money at 3 financially reasonable levels that could afford you benefits from T-shirts, and line cutting, to VIP entrances, and backstage privileges for you and your friends.

Burning Man is the Pièce de résistance of marijuana friendly travel destinations. A morbid oasis bazaar of sorts, Burning Man sets itself apart from the other great events on this list, in that the attendees ARE the show. Mutant vehicles and fantastic costumes brings this normally boring spot of desert in the Black Rock of Nevada to life for the week leading into Labor Day. Make-shift communities, living and conceptual art, and ‘round the clock raves build up to the climax that is the Burning of the Man. Burning the giant wooden effigy symbolizes different things to different people, but is widely accepted as a way to let go all of the rigid forms that make up our lives in an attempt to get back to self reliant personal expression. Admission costs between $200 and $300, depending on when you purchase tickets. After that, you’ll need no currency… just a creative way to barter and trade for what you want. Be prepared for extreme heat, sand storms, “creative” self expression, public nudity. This event is not for the faint of heart… don’t say I didn’t warn you. As you can see, travel for the pot aficionado can take a number of shapes. Depending on your style and duration of entertainment choices, it’s easy to see how a spontaneous evening can turn into an extended weekend or more without much trouble.

by NOELLE LEAVITT The recent surge of medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado has created a conundrum for commercial real estate owners who need to rent vacant space but are fearful pot retailers could bring in crime or alienate other tenants.  It has gotten to the point where some property owners who advertise for tenants on Craigslist have specifically noted that they will not lease to pot retailers.   “I think it’s ludicrous for owners to not be willing to rent something in this economy,” said Veronica Carpio, owner of 420 Highways medical marijuana dispensary in Lafayette. “The whole complaint about higher crime rates is ridiculous.”   But for many landlords, it has to do with more than just looking at the bottom line.   “Denver’s economy is bad, who wouldn’t love more rent coming in,” said Dennis Witte, president of Omni Development Corp., which owns roughly 300,000-square-feet of commercial real estate in the Denver metro area. “The industry is just so uncertain right now.”  Some landlords don’t see longevity in pot retailers, with all the ordinances and moratoriums city councils are implementing on dispensaries, and the medical marijuana reforms expected to come this spring at the state capitol.  “We’re waiting for it to shake itself out,” Witte said, adding that he’s not opposed to medical marijuana, as his wife, who is in constant pain, has considered applying for a prescription card.    Not all dispensary owners have experienced snags when looking for commercial real estate. Carpio said her landlord was extremely welcoming when she opened 420 Highway last August. 78 kush

 Mark Rose of Nederland said his landlord also was fine with leasing space for his dispensary, Grateful Meds, but it took him a while to find an accepting property owner who would rent to him. Rose said he contacted several wary proprietors before he found a spot.  “One of the landlords up here was concerned about having marijuana in the same building where he was working in,” Rose said, noting that it was more of an issue in Nederland prior to the federal government lifting sanctions on states’ medical marijuana laws in October. “Landlords were nervous and afraid of having their property taken by the feds. But now, the trend up here — at first people were very skeptical and nervous — but now they’re really coming around.” Since October’s federal ruling, Denver property owner Ron Tarver, of Broadway Terrance Reality, has been inundated with more than 90 phone calls from reefer patrons. “What we have here is an odd thing. The whole thing is odd,” Tarver explained. “I’m not particularly in favor of it. I turn them down all the time, and I have a vacancy. Basically I tell them that I don’t want to rent to them. From a landlord’s perspective, what I’m afraid of is they may rent an office and bring crime. It adversely affects my other tenants. And, of course, that adversely affects my bottom line.” But as local ordinances keep coming into cities throughout the state to regulate an already emerging industry, landlords are taking notice. Many property owners have already secured tenants, as demonstrated by the numerous dispensaries already open and doing business here, and many more plan on leasing to medical marijuana related businesses.

The spring time always seems to be a great time for live music. With the big tour season kicking off and the weather being a bit more inviting, more bands come to town and more fans come out to see them. There is a slew of great live music in the coming months in Denver and surrounding areas, but here are a few Kush picks. JULIAN CASABLANCAS 4.21.10 @ Ogden Theatre

YEASAYER W/ SLEIGH BELLS 4.24.10 @ Bluebird Theater

Julian Casablancas has proven himself to be quite the well rounded musician with his solo act. His day job -- lead singer and songwriter of The Strokes may have gotten his career revved up, but it’s clear he has a lot more to offer in his lifetime as a musician. “11th Dimension” is a powerful and uplifting song that has been well received by both fans and critics. You’ll probably have many chances to see him in the future, but don’t you want to be able to say you were there at the beginning??

Brooklyn based Yeasayer have met and possibly exceeded expectations from their second album Odd One. With their more uptempo singles “O.N.E.” and “Ambling Up” they have gained a whole new wave of fans that surge to their shows with the enthusiasm of a Justin Beiber crowd. Fellow Brooklyn babies Sleigh Bells join them from their place in the boiling underground scene. You’re guaranteed to get your money’s worth out of this show, we promise.

SIA 4.22.10 @ Gothic Theatre Sia Furler, the LA/NY based indie darling has a beautiful voice and an undoubtedly bright future in front of her. Her songs “Buttons” and “You’ve Changed” are ones you should definitely download if you’re unfamiliar with Sia... even if you can’t make it to this show. She also does an interesting take on Britney Spears’ (or whoever wrote it) “Gimme More”. Get familiar, and check her out at the Gothic Theatre on Thursday the 22nd.

SUBLIME WITH ROME 4.26.10 @ Fillmore Auditorium When lead singer Bradley Nowell passed on in May of 1996, many assumed that was the end of Sublime. Since his death though, Sublime has gained fans exponentially, but could never rightfully perform live. Eric Wilson & Bud Gaugh have certainly tried to bring the magic back to the stage with Long Beach Shortbus and Long Beach Dub Allstars, but it was never quite right. Now with new lead singer Rome Ramirez, who sounds eerily similar to Bradley, Sublime with Rome is touring the country. Playing the hits that made us all fall in love, this will be a beautiful thing. Get tickets soon, as they will sell super FAST!

Left: Drake, Yeasayer Right from Top: Lupe Fiasco, Henry Rollins, 30 Seconds to Mars Logo, Julian Casablancas, Sia 82 kush

LUPE FIASCO 4.29.10 @ Ogden Theatre Lupe Fiasco kicked n pushed his way into hip hop stardom in the early 2000’s, hitting superstar status with 2007’s The Cool. With his new album Lasers being released in 2010 Lupe is jumping into the next decade playing shows in most major cities to promote the coming release. Boasting one of the best flows in the game, his live show is one that all fans of hip hop should see at least once. Also, this show should also be very smoker friendly. Digg that.

THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS 5.7.10 @ Fillmore Auditorium Touring in support of their album This Is War, Jared Leto’s band Thirty Seconds to Mars is making their way around the world. And while many of us have been critical of Leto’s screamo band, they are slowly gaining respect and legitimacy. They even did a song with Kanye West! It’s rumored to be a legit live show that may leave you laying in bed afterwards pondering love lost, or when the earth will end. So if you’re into that kinda thing, this is your ticket!

DRAKE 5.17.10 @ Ogden Theatre What else can you say about the former Degrassi cast member than that he has made it. And deservedly so, as he is a very talented man with the backing of the greatest rapper alive’s Young Money Label. His debut album So Far Gone has been a huge hit, so expect a sellout crowd and get your tickets VERY early for this one.

HENRY ROLLINS 5.18.10 @ Boulder Theater The man is intense. There is no doubt about that. Whether he’s fronting Black Flag, doing stand up comedy, or reciting his captivating brand of poetry, Rollins brings a certain energy to the stage that many can’t match (maybe Andrew W.K.) Moral of the story, don’t show up to the Boulder Theater without ample enthusiasm.

ALSO: Ani DiFranco 4.22.10 @ Ogden Theatre The Album Leaf 4.22.10 @ Bluebird Theater (Denver) The Dear Hunter w/ Special Guests 4.26.10 @ Marquis Theater

Incredible is a powerful word. So Incredible Purple should be a powerful strain of indica right? Not so fast there partner... The Incredible Purple strain of indica isn’t powerful in the sense that you will be overwhelmed. It’s quite the opposite actually. It’s one of the few strains that you can smoke a joint on your own and not only exist amongst sober individuals comfortably, but usually even control the situation or conversation. After smoking this for a few days, you’ll be hard pressed to switch back to a more intense strain.  Some of us feel negative effects when smoking certain indica strains, like being really tired when we don’t want to be or not being able to properly c om mu n i c at e with people around us. But Incredible Purple really earns its name in this department. Holding conversation, working, running errands, and all those other things that may become difficult seem surprisingly easy with this strain. And while that may lead you to believe that you won’t get the positives that indicas provide (treating insomnia, nausea, etc), an 88 kush

Incredible Purple high is perfect to put you to sleep and take you into your happy place. A few examples of the freeing, relaxed state of mind you should expect from this strain: We’ve witnessed a band flawlessly rocking shows in front of 1,000+ skeptical music nerds; a student at a major university gave a speech to her communications class high in IP; people meeting business contacts and not missing a beat in the conversation; we fell asleep in a van crammed with nine men, despite the music blasting and the driver taking turns like Mario Andretti.  The physical characteristics of are more expected than incredible. A deep green, with hints of purple, orange hairs, and a crystalline shimmer. Smells are sweet as most purple kush will be, but not overwhelmingly pungent or dank. Kind of just right. Taste is also fairly sweet, but with little salty undertones that, if you let your imagination go to work, is like eating Reese’s pieces or PB & J sammy... so smoking is almost like an appetizer to the potential smörgåsbord that may ensue. Incredible Purple came to us highly recommended by our friends at Hyperion Healing in Los Angeles. When asking for a different indica, he just put the jar of IP on the table and smiled. That’s what a good dispensary should do for you!... not push a certain strain on you because they need to sell it fast, but introduce customers to delightful new strains that may be perfect for your individual taste. So if your favorite dispensary  doesn’t  do that... start shopping around. Most medical cannabis establishments will carry Incredible Purple. If you can’t find it head over to our website and ask your friends if they know where to find it!

Creating the Cookie

he perfect THC chocolate chip cookie is a round piece of culinary heaven — moist, chewy, and tasty. It has a bit of a kick, but that same chocolaty, gooey goodness you remember from childhood … and continue to crave. The best part is that it makes you feel as good as it tastes, creating an experience that’s simultaneously delicious and medicinal. It’s the ideal “big kid” treat.

With a few of our tips, the perfect THC chocolate chip cookie is easy to create, making it all that more perfect. You won’t have to spend hours slaving away in the kitchen, which means you can spend more time enjoying the cookie’s effects. Before you bake, preheat the oven to 350. To make the dough, you simply mix together a package of yellow cake mix (yes, cake mix), 2 eggs, half a cup of vegetable oil (or Smart Balance oil if you’d like to health it up), and a package of chocolate chips, and then blend the ingredients into a thick batter.

Adding the Special Oil Now comes the tricky part, but don’t fret because even the tricky part isn’t that tricky. You need to make the hemp oil (aka the fun part) to add to the dough, but first, you need to decide how much weed to incorporate into the mix. If you have about a joint’s worth, you can make a few potent cookies, and a few joints will create about 4 cookies (and so on). Therefore, decide how many “green” cookies you’d like to make, and do the math (the most thinking you’ll do all day). Be mindful of how much bud you use to ensure you ingest the proper amount of cookies later. Take the small pieces of weed and sauté them in a tiny bit of oil, just enough to adequately heat the bud to perfection (brown and cooked, but not burnt). This should be done in a small pot on low to medium heat. (Remember: you already added oil to the original mix, so keep the sautéing oil to an extreme minimum to avoid over-saturating the dough.) Look at the dough to decipher how much will get fused with the “fun” oil. (Note: the batter makes around 2 and a half to 3 dozen cookies.) Once the oil concoction is nice and ready, take the appropriate amount of dough and add it to the pot (literally). Thoroughly mix the oil into the dough, ensuring it is evenly distributed and that each “green” cookie will be equally stimulating.

Getting Creative If you’re feeling creative, you can add other goodies to the cookies such as Reese’s Pieces®, M& M’s®, nuts, coconut, or

anything else you can think of that would enhance the flavor— follow your cravings! If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you could even lace the chocolate chips and create a doubly effective cookie. You can melt some baking chocolate, add some bud butter, put the melted chocolate onto a cookie sheet (in small balls), then put the tiny morsels in the fridge to harden.

Baking it Up Once you have the dough evenly distributed on cookie sheets, and you’re clear about which cookies are “special” and which ones aren’t (very important), bake them for about 8-10 minutes, possibly longer depending on your oven (keep an eye on them). Once the bottoms are golden brown, they’re ready to be savored ... after they cool off of course.

Eating & Enjoying the Cookie Although the laced cookies taste delicious and you’re going to want to gobble them right up, remember how much weed you put into them, and weigh the amount against your tolerance while you’re munching away. Then, be patient and give the cookie time to work its magic; this high takes around an hour and a half to become fully induced. At first, your unbuzzed mind may tell you to eat more, but ignore its gluttonous pleas, because you know how much you can handle and an overindulgence will come back to haunt you (not fun). However, the right amount will give you a full body high, heightening your senses and elevating your state of mind. And, remember the plethora of regular cookies you whipped up in this process? They will taste better than ever right now! (Be sure you have some milk on hand.) This glorious intoxication will last for hours, so try to eat and share the cookies early in the day. Then, enjoy your journey to Pleasureland, where everything is humorous and relaxing, and life is, well, sweet. kush 93

As spring is upon us,

we golfers look forward to longer days, tee times, and range balls. Yeah, we all know a guy that plays twice a week (weather permitting) throughout the winter. But who has the time for

that... or the money! Most of us quit playing golf sometime during football season, only to start up again well into the thaw of spring. And were you hitting balls during the break? Sure you were. Whatever momentum you had going during the fall has slowed to a crawl. And those pounds that added up during the holidays? That’s not going to help your short game. When spring finally does roll around, most people waste expensive rounds finding their swing. But where did it go?

98 kush

Fitness is a critical aspect of golf. Your swing didn’t go anywhere, it’s that your muscles have been resting during the last 5 months while you’ve been living your life. The muscles that give you the explosion for a healthy swing, your core muscles, have weakened. Simple exercises such as push-ups, sit-ups, and pull-ups are enough to keep most core muscles active. Jogging and cycling are great ways to keep cardiovascular health up.

will actually cut through the deep rough to strike the ball. All of a sudden, that 130 yard safe play can be an aggressive attempt to save birdie. Putters and wedges are “feel” clubs. The only way to find “your” club is by the club’s feel when you swing. More often than not, the best wedges and putters for you, are going to be made by different companies. Many golfers who play with graphite shafts find steel shafts to be too stiff and rigid. But in a good loft wedge, that’s what you want. Stiffness and good hands is the key to the touch aspect of the short swing. So the wedge that came with your graphite shaft probably isn’t going to cut the short stuff. A putter is another club that is all about feel. If you don’t have a short stick that feels comfortable in your hands, that can be a real problem.

Now that you’re feeling your swing, let’s talk equipment. Now, there aren’t many of us that can utilize the potential of a $2000 set of clubs. However, most of us do have a basic set that we’ve grown comfortable with. As long as your clubs were made in the last 6 or 7 years and haven’t been wrapped around a tree, yet, they’re probably adequate.

A good way to choose the club that’s best for your swing is to find a “demo day” near you. Early in the season is the best time to find a demo day. It’s common to find a golf pro at these events... ask them questions, that’s why they’re there. Sure they’ll be pushing certain products, and take that into consideration when making your decision. Spend a few extra bucks for the name brands. They spend the most on club development, and so should you. Ping, Titleist , Calloway, Taylor Made, Nike, and Cleveland are very well respected club manufacturers... but you already know this. Ultimately, you are the only one that can choose the right club for you. Pros can give suggestions on what to look for, but what really matters is how the club feels in your hands as you swing and striking through the ball.

The clubs that should be considered for replacement are drivers, wedges, putters, and rescue clubs. Despite the knowledge that each club has it’s own use, we rarely use good club judgment. Besides, why hit a 3 wood off the tee box when you could feed that big dog, right? If you’re going to use that big dog, why not make it the big dog that makes your buddies drool the moment you pull that head cover off. Choose wisely though, the wrong driver could make those “buddies” of yours fall to the ground in laughter in lieu of that sweet snap hook into the lumberyard.

Your swing is happening, your bag is filled with your perfect custom set... time to get out and practice, right? Not exactly. Every couple of years, it’s a good idea to take a lesson or two. This is a particularly useful method of keeping those pesky bad habits at bay. Over the years, our bodies change. Accordingly, our swing adapts to those physical changes. Reasonable fitness and an occasional lesson from a trusted golf pro can help keep our minds and bodies on the same page, allowing us to play consistent golf for decades.

Rescue clubs are becoming a must in players bag. These are irons that act like woods... and vice versa. Really, the most practical use for the rescue club is when you’ve just butchered your 300 yard drive into the deep rough, 50 yards down the fairway. Normally, you would grab your favorite long iron, and settle for the safe fairway lie. Now, you can swing a big club that

So get out with your friends. Swing away! Drive for show, and putt for dough... no pressure. The game of golf can get pretty intense, mind over matter type stuff. If you need a mental nap mid round? Pack a one-hitter to help you forget about that botched approach on number 12. If anyone asks, just say you’re “taking a whack at the bat”, and smile. kush 99

Regular moderate stretching reduces risk of injury and promotes muscle health. If you were to do these activities while you’re not golfing regularly, you might even lose some lbs. while everyone else is packin ‘em on for the winter.

Sometimes a car just falls through the cracks. It could be that they were released at the wrong time, or that their price tag was just off, maybe the design was just too dated to sell as a new car. Whatever the reason, sometimes a great car just never really captures the attention of the public. Nevertheless, looking back, there are some that stand out as terrific cars.

Most importantly though these forgotten favorites represent great value for money, something that everyone is looking for while we endure the so-called Great Recession. Each car on this list brings something new to the table, a GT car, a bargain racer, a top down cruiser and a luxury masterpiece. They all have two things in common though, these cars are some of the very best at their respective jobs, and you may have never heard of them.

BMW 8 Series At launch, the 8 series was one of BMW’s crown jewels. This 2+2 (meaning two seats in the front and a spare of miniscule seats in the back) was designed as a grand touring car for the most discerning of the BMW buyers. The 8 series is loaded with all the options you could imagine in a car designed in the late 1980s. A top-of-the-line 850csi had an MSRP around the $100,000 mark. The car never really caught on and was considered too expensive for most. Sales were lack luster and BMW dropped the 8 series from its American lineup in 1997. Today, the 8 series still shines. Both of the two available engines are fantastic, the V8 puts out 286 horsepower and the larger V12 makes a bit more. That might not sound like a whole lot when compared to the cars that are available today, but it’s the torque driven character of these cars that make them great. Get on a long stretch of road and sit back as the the miles roll by. At around $20,000 used, this is a great example of European grand touring

Nissan Sentra SE R Spec V The Nissan Sentra was released in the wake of the original ‘The Fast and the Furious’ movie and the street racing pop culture phenomena that followed. It’s really hard to understate the effect that film’s release in 2001 had on the car world. Now the film is a joke to those in the know, with quotes spewed out like punch lines at car meets the world over. The Sentra, however is holding up really well. Nissan gave their base Sentra a pretty torquey 2.5 liter four cylinder engine and paired it with a short ratio six speed gearbox. Match that up with the car’s low weight, suspension work and limited slip differential and you have a surprisingly fun car to drive in the corners. That said, the Spec V won’t be winning any beauty contests any time soon, nor is the interior a particularly nice place to be. What makes the Spec V such a great car is its price. New, the Spec would cost in the mid to high teens, and now, one can be easily had for as little as $6,500. That’s cheap for any car, let alone one that has the ability to get your adrenaline pumping. And trust me, it can.

Porsche 968 The Porsche 968 is another car that never really caught on. During the four years it was on sale, Porsche never really 106 kush

managed to sell many. The car replaced the 80’s-tastic 944 in the ‘poor man’s Porsche’ segment and was replaced by the much loved Boxster. The 968 is everything you would expect from an entry level Porsche from the 90’s. It’s relatively nimble, fun to drive, it makes a decent noise but also, especially if you go for the convertible version, this is one of the best boulevard cruisers the company has ever made. If top down, leisurely cruises through the Rocky Mountains or down the Pacific Coast Highway are your thing, at around $15,000, the 968 Cabriolet might be one of the best cars in the world for you.

Volkswagen Phaeton The Phaeton was supposed to challenge what Americans thought about luxury cars. Introduced in North America in 2004 (ending in 2006), this ‘People’s Car’ dropped into the luxury car segment with a $60,000-$90,000 price tag. The idea was that people would be saving money compared to cars like BMW’s 7 series or Mercedes’ S Class, but all the public really saw was an $80,000 car without an impressive badge. Really, the Phaeton was just a housing market crash too early. Today, excessive spending isn’t looked on the same way as it was in the mid 2000s. People are looking for smart buys, and the Phaeton certainly is one. The V8 powered car goes for around $17,000 today and the W12, 414 hp monster pulls in about $7,000 to $10,000 more, but that is still an amazing deal for a car that shares a good portion of its parts with the Bentley Flying Spur.

You know you’re a stoner when: your driver’s side window has chip marks from cashing out on the road. You know you’re a stoner when: after clearing customs in London, you happily find a stash of Cali buds stuffed in a jacket pocket. Whew!! You know you’re a stoner when: random people at concerts walk up to you to ask “…do you have any buds for sale, or to smoke?” You know you’re a stoner when: your entire closet consists of different tie-died concert shirts.

Professional sports have always had their fair share of controversies. In the past decades, we have seen any number of athletes in the news for steroids, infidelities and other crimes against fandom. When Magic Johnson announced he was HIV positive, the world was shocked that such an icon could have participated in behaviors that gave him the deadly disease. OJ Simpson a killer? All signs point to yes. Kobe a rapist? Maybe he did and maybe he didn’t, but certainly things got out of hand and if nothing else, Kobe was unfaithful to his wife on that and perhaps many other occasions. Jose Canseco, an admitted doper, wrote a nasty tell-all book that led to the implication of several big name athletes who cheated their bodies and baseball by using performance-enhancing drugs. There seems to be no end to the gossip and sadly, the truth about how the humans who embody these untouchable stars fall flat on their cheating faces. Here’s a look some of the more recent scandals and athletes who have fallen from grace.

When Mark McGwire appeared on television in tears, did anyone cry with him? Probably not. The image of McGwire greeting the Maris family after beating out the legend in most home runs in a single season is now a black spot in history. Recap: On January 11, 2010 McGwire admitted to using steroids on and off for a decade, and said, “I wish I had never touched steroids. It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era.” He admitted using in the 1989/1990 offseason and then after he was injured in 1993. He admitted using them on occasion throughout the ‘90s, including during the 1998 season. McGwire stated that he used steroids to recover from injuries, however a drug dealer who claimed to have provided steroids to McGwire asserted that his use was to improve his size and strength, rather than to just maintain his health. McGwire’s decision to admit using steroids was prompted by his decision to become hitting coach of the St. Louis Cardinals. According to McGwire, he took steroids for health reasons rather than to improve performance. Do you believe him? Does the Maris family? McGwire’s silver lining: None.

Arguably the best player in basketball, Kobe’s famous rendezvous in Colorado will never be forgotten, even by the most ardent fan. Even though he wasn’t convicted of the sexual assault charge, the stigma attached to the accusation hurt his endorsements and role model status. Recap: It all began in the summer of 2003 when the news media reported that the sheriff ’s office in Eagle, Colorado had arrested the NBA superstar in connection with an investigation of a sexual assault complaint filed by 19-year old hotel employee Katelyn Faber. Bryant had checked into The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera hotel in Cordillera, Colorado on June 30 in advance of having surgery near there on July 2 under Dr. Richard Steadman. Faber accused Bryant of raping her in his hotel room on July 1, the night before the surgery. Bryant admitted to an adulterous sexual encounter with his accuser, but denied the assault allegation. The case was dropped after Faber declined to testify in the trial, and a civil suit was settled out of court. Kobe’s silver linings included a 7-year, $136 million contract a year after the allegations, and regained several of his endorsements from Nike, Spalding, and Coca-Cola. He remains married to his wife Vanessa Bryant, and was awarded the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award in 2008 and the Finals Most Valuable Player in 2009.

The face and QB of the Pittsburg Steelers faced sexual assault charges last July brought forward by a woman at Harrah’s Casino in Lake Tahoe. The bizarre story claimed that the woman was under care of a psychiatrist because she was dealing with the death of a man she was in love with who never existed. More recently, Big Ben was accused of sexual assault by a 20-year-old woman he met at a nightclub in Milledgeville, GA. At the time of this article, the case is still pending. Roethilsberger did not report to early workouts with the team and the Steelers’ organization has expressed “great concern for their team and Ben.” Big Ben’s Silver Lining: The motorcycle crash he suffered in 2006 while not wearing a helmet didn’t kill him.

Tiger took marriage vows and no one is sure why. He claims that he did it because he loved his wife. He claims that he felt a sense of entitlement and that all his hard work was deserving of a few distractions. A few? Try fifteen plus. Tiger blew the minds of nearly the entire word when the news came out that Tiger was the weak link in his seemingly perfect family. Tiger ran off to a rehabilitation facility to work on his “issues”, which he calls a private matter. While many speculate that his treatment was for sex addiction, many more speculate if “sex addiction” is even a real thing. Tiger lost $180 Million in endorsements, which apparently isn’t that big of a deal for sports’ first billionaire. Tiger’s silver lining: The Tiger machine has controlled every word of his apologies and re-entry into golf and d i e - h a rd fans are buying it.
