Colorado, there’s a famous expression, if you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes. Most of our readers know what I’m talking about. Well what about the expression, if you don’t like the medical marijuana laws, wait a day. Doesn’t if feel like every time you open the paper or listen to the news, something related to medical marijuana is being discussed. The effects of HB 1284 and SB 109, which were signed into law on June 7, 2010 by Governor Bill Ritter, are already being felt by the more that 1,100 dispensary owners in the state of Colorado. It is anticipated that many may not be able to comply with the strict rules, which include restrictions on location (forcing many to close their doors and move already); registration requirements (all new medical marijuana centers and bakeries had to register by July 1st) whereas existing “centers” and bakeries could ignore this July 1st registration requirement; background checks for owners, employees, etc. for criminal records; steep licensing fees based on patient count (licensing fees must be paid by August 1st ) and then by September 1st all dispensaries, now called “centers” must be cultivating at least 70 percent of their own medicine. So what does this mean for our readers? Well, for many of you, if your favorite “center” is able to totally comply, you will see no effect. However, having to grow at least 70% of their medicine might change the selection of medication available. After all, imagine if Whole Foods could only sell produce that it grew at least 70% of. Even a company as large as Whole Foods would have to limit its selection since it couldn’t possibly provide all the different types of fruits and vegetables that are now available when a market can obtain it’s produce nationally and internationally from the best produce suppliers available. In fact, the requirement of having to grow at least 70% of their medicine could have an impact on quality. After all, growing purples is quite different from growing sativa and hybrids, and if your center is not known for growing, in order to continue operating it will have to join forces with growers so it can provide the medicine it needs to service its patients. If your “center” can’t meet the rigorous and pricy requirements set forth under the new laws, then you’ll have to find a new center. So what does this mean for the “centers”? Many “centers” who didn’t register by July 1, 2010 have to close their doors. Those who stay open, have to pay licensing fees, which is currently being determined by the Department of Revenue. As of the date this publication goes to press (July 3, 2010) there are no forms or amounts of licensing fees designated by the Department of Revenue on their website or anywhere else. In fact, with less than a month left that “centers” will have to comply with a bill that was passed on June 7th, many will not even know if they can comply until the amount of the licensing fees are clearly set forth. Pretty unbelievable, wouldn’t you agree. Imagine having to close a purchase on your house in less than 30 days and not to even know how much the house is going to cost you. Who would possibly enter into that deal? So for all of the medical marijuana centers and patients, Hold Strong! Several challenges to the new laws are already underway, and presumably many more will follow once the total impact of HB 1284 and SB 109 are felt. For those who want to discuss this issue or any other cannabis related issue, please join us at Kush Editorial Board,

Aurora mall officials could find themselves in court after detaining John “Jake” Gailey at the Town Center at Aurora for wearing a “Yes We Cannabis” T-shirt.

The cops opted not to handcuff Gailey as they escorted him to the mall’s police substation. Once they got to the substation, Gailey said the

on May 22 after security officers and mall administrators told him he couldn’t wear a shirt that promotes marijuana on the premises. According to the police report, Gailey was first approached by a mall “mom” for violating the mall’s dress code, which prohibits the promoting of drug use.

Yet the officers ultimately decided not to charge Gailey at all, and instead banned him from the mall for a year. Feeling constitutionally violated, Gailey sought legal help from attorneys Jessica and Rob Corry.

The report also states that this and other dress code

help oversee the security of the shopping center by ensuring rules are followed. “They told me I would have to take off the shirt, flip it inside out, or leave,” Gailey, 29, told Kush Magazine. “I told them that I wasn’t going to take my shirt off and that I wanted to speak to management.” While Gailey was arguing with the unidentified “mom,” police arrived and observed for several minutes, according to police reports. Management arrived shortly thereafter and stood by the “mom,” saying he wasn’t allowed to wear a pro-marijuana shirt in a private mall where families shop. “I told them they were violating my constitutional rights,” Gailey said. “Then they told me I was being arrested for trespassing.”

Gailey doesn’t seek millions of dollars from filing a lawsuit. “This is about Jake’s belief in commitment to a larger cause,” Jessica Corry explained to Kush. “And the larger cause is not marijuana — it’s freedom of speech.” A couple weeks after Gailey was banned from the Aurora mall, a group of around 30 marijuana proponents marched into the mall wearing cannabis T-shirts. None of them were detained or banned from the mall. “If they can ignore 30 people wearing pro-cannabis T-shirts, why couldn’t they just ignore one person?” questioned Mason Tvert, executive director of SAFER Colorado, who organized the march into the shopping center.

If you’re lucky enough to live in a city that provides composting

containers as part of the trash service, then you know just how simple composting can be, even if you don’t exactly know where your leftovers are going. And if you do not have the luxury of the green, city-provided bucket, then you may want to consider starting your own bucket at home. Compost is nature’s answer to fertilizer can act as fuel for creative engine-builders and is an excellent growing medium. Some people even use it in grow rooms to provide an extra boost of CO2. Compost is essential for nearly every garden as it enriches the soil, which produces better plants. It also improves the texture of the soil, allowing the soil to hold better air and moisture levels. Again, happier plants. So you see, it’s silly to just toss your banana peels into a landfill. Composting is a simple way we can all work to lessen our carbon footprint and by putting what comes from the earth back into it, we recycle at the simplest and most important levels.

Composting is simply decomposed organic matter and

that can be plant or animalderived. Anyone can effectively manage composting. If you have organic matter, and we all do, you can have compost. Composting 101 teaches us that compost is good; big piles of rotten food and garbage are bad. The trick is to make sure that you are composting the right balance of “browns” and “greens”. Green materials would be your plant clippings, your kitchen scraps and any weeds from the yard. Brown material would include things like dry, blown leaves, straw, cornstalks and dried grass. The balance of these groupings makes for better water/air circulation. Too much of one or the other and you just get garbage. Expert opinion says that the right ratio is about 4 parts brown to 1 part green.

Your new compost bucket is a If you’re composting for a great place for any food garden, it’s a good idea to scraps, used coffee grounds, eggshells and plant matter. In a typical morning, you can contribute the toast crusts you’ve never liked, the coffee grounds from your wake-up cup of joe and the trimmings from your pruned plants. Toss in a couple of eggshells from breakfast and you’re on your way to building a compost empire! If you are keeping your compost around and not putting it out with the garbage and recycling, you may want to consider an outdoor home for the bucket. Compost will get smelly and the heat of summer, you may come home to a smell you would just as soon forget. The best place to store your compost heap is near the garden, since that’s where it will end us eventually anyway. 18 kush

either buy or build a composting bin. This doesn’t have to be complicated. Generally all you need to do is build a wooden box with a screen to filter the decomposing material that will sift into another chamber. It is important to remember that you need to mix the material, so a good pitchfork or big stick is necessary to move the new and older materials.

So the next time

you find yourself sitting in the kitchen with nectarine juice dripping from your chin, toss that pit in the composting bucket. It’s good for you, good for your plants and good for the Earth.

The mention of mangoes can quickly take your mind to a tropical place. “Mango Madness” makes me think of sitting by the beach listening only to the sound of the ocean and steel drums. Slowly biting into a juicy piece of fruit while beautiful women fan me with palm leaves. Sounds pretty nice, right? So when Mango Madness turned up on the menu at my dispensary I was intrigued, to say the least. After getting home and trying my new strain, I decided to do a little more poking around on the internet’s wild west... search engines. If you Google “mango madness marijuana”, you’ll mostly get stoner forums on how to get super-duper high by eating mangoes and then smoking cannabis (which actually seems to be a legitimate thing). You’ll get a few reviews of the strain Mango Madness, generally all in forums or sites without much if any content.  On both Google and Bing, when you punch in “mango madness” the first result is a sponsored listing for anti-aging cream, and after that an ad which reads: “It’s Mango Madness! is a photo review of Mango, a rambunctious and adorable Ruddy Abyssinian cat.” On Bing I found out that it’s a mixed alcoholic beverage that goes over real well with the ladies. On Yahoo, I found mostly culinary sites with recipes for drinks or other concoctions that were dominated with mango. When I searched twitter for “mango madness”, I learned that it’s a Jamba Juice smothie as well as a Snapple and Arizona brand drink. Tweets on the topic include

22 kush

requests for friends to pick up a drink for the desperate tweeter, promo for products, and vacation tweets with tales sandy, carefree beaches.  Mango also happened to be Chris Kattan’s flamboyantly awesome character in the hilarious SNL skits. So there’s a lot of ways to go with this name... As expected here within this fine publication, we’re going to talk about the Mango Madness strain of kush that get’s you pretty high regardless of whether or not you eat some fruit beforehand. Mango Madness is a hybrid strain that splits the difference between indica and sativa pretty evenly. It has a sweet, clean taste that is very refreshing. It’s soft and fluffy, like a big cumulus cloud high up in the sky where you could be taking an afternoon nap. These mangoes are dominantly green in color, with a healthy amount of orange hairs and a sugary sheen all over. Pretty sticky and dense buds that we’d recommend using a grinder for, especially if you’re rolling your own joints by hand. One average sized bowl lasts a regular marijuana user about 2 hours in all, without any real unpleasant peaks or lows. I smoke a lot of indica marijuana for it’s mellow attributes. This high is pretty mellow, paired with a kick of inspiration that had me starting to write this review during an NBA Finals game, and now finishing it on a beautiful, warm, sunny day. You might just have to get some work done with this buzz. I also get pretty bad anxiety and increased heart rate with strong sativa’s, but Mango Madness clears the way for relaxation and good, open conversation. So it’s really the best of both worlds!  Many hybrids will go really far one way or the other. You’ll either be passing out after eating a whole pizza or going for a walk with headphones on to ease your anxiety and meet your heart rate somewhere in the middle. But Mango Madness is pretty smooth on the whole... smooth like yacht rock. So pick some of this up at your dispensary, sit back and put on some old Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, or whatever you have that will match the vibe. Find a hammock, put on some smooth tunes, and let the madness begin.

As we enjoy the summer months, and prepare for another July 4th weekend, let’s take a minute to learn a few things about the Declaration of Independence that may not have stuck since the 3rd grade…… What’s known as the United States Declaration of Independence is a document declaring that the 13 colonies (then at war with Great Britain), were now independent states, thus no longer a part of the British Empire. Imagine the vision and courage to make such a move away from the largest Empire in history. It’s no wonder these iconic figures fill our history books, and grace our currency today. This Declaration, adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4th, 1776, was widely published, and read to the public. It was such a different time, when the news of the day was read in public squares. A far cry from CNN and live streaming video, now 234 years later. Historians have figured out that the signing may have taken place close to a month later, on August 2, 1776, and not on the July 4th date as commonly believed. What if we celebrate with hot dogs and fireworks in August? It just doesn’t seem right, but it could have been. This most famous document, housed at the National Archives 28 kush

in Washington D.C. is printed on “hemp” paper. This shouldn’t be a big surprise, seeing as how both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp, and Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper. Is it possible that these guys were twisting up some doobies in between Congressional meetings? Meeting on the steps of the Courthouse, for a little inspiration? Well, it’s possible of course, but not proven. What is fact though, is that hemp and all its attributes have been around for well over 234 years, and it only makes sense that America’s most prized legal document was drawn up on the day’s most common and useful paper. As we find ourselves here in 2010, with more current issues on the table, let’s remember our forefathers and the painful, arduous task it must have been to write such a declaration. As our politicians and government officials draw up legislations regarding our future freedoms here in the U.S., we must appreciate the process, and the freedoms to continue doing so. It is such a vital, inherent thread in us, as Americans. We must never take these rights for granted. Happy Birthday America!

“The Battle of Algiers,” an Italian film made in 1966, depicts Algeria’s difficult struggle to separate itself from colonial France. The black and white footage, coupled with the ancient architecture of Algiers, gives the film an excellent feeling of antiquity, which speaks to the heritage of the Algerian people and their dissatisfaction with French rule. The true beauty of this film, however, lies in the portrayal of both sides of the battle—the French commanders and government have as much of a voice in the film as do the Algerian guerillas. This film also provides a birds-eye view into modern Muslim society, and without doubt will to many, shed light on America’s concurrent wars in the Middle East today.  

“Philadelphia,” 1993, starring Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington, explores homosexuality, homophobia, and HIV/AIDS in both the workplace and society as a whole. In portraying the multitude of different characters the film aims at showcasing the truly humanistic side of each person, as well as each issue. Hate for the unknown is a major theme of this film; once the unknown world of homosexuality morphs into a dying human being with a face the perspectives of many of the characters dramatically change. This is a powerful film that exposes philosophies of hate and discrimination, human’s fear of the unknown, and our ability to learn and tolerate that which confronts our everyday state of normalcy.  

“When the Levees Broke” is a documentary about the Hurricane Katrina Saga, from before the storm hit to one year after. While the film definitely criticizes the federal response to the disaster, it also steps away from the typical media coverage and seeks the opinions of people from different parts of the city, economic class, race, gender, etc., from then-Mayor Ray Nagin to people literally standing in front of their destroyed houses. The multiple opinions presented in this 4-hourlong documentary allow the viewer to see many of the differing views surrounding the event, with a scope so powerful that is difficult to find something as well-rounded on the subject.

“The Wire” has been widely hailed as the best TV show of alltime. I won’t disagree. But while the entirety of the show’s five seasons are panoramic, and each season only represents one facet of the city of Baltimore, season one does an exceptional job of portraying poverty, drug culture, inherent racism, and corruption in a crumbling American city. Unlike many “cop shows,” the first season of “The Wire” transcends the usual confines of the medium and gives the “bad guys”—drug dealers, users, and their muscle—as much of a voice as the cops themselves. Both sides are criticized and analyzed, and both sides are represented with fairness and truth. This season of “The Wire,” if not the entire show itself, will absolutely change the way you view the world around you. It is an absolute must-see. kush 35

On a recent road trip to New Mexico, I decided to go a different way. You know, take the road less traveled and all that Gestalt goodness. Pagosa Springs may very well be one of the most beautiful spots on Earth. Pagosa is surrounded by the largest contiguous wilderness area in the United States and the San Juan National Forest. Nothing short of glorious, the road from Durango to Pagosa Springs was maybe the most beautiful I have seen in all of Colorado. Ouray, known as Switzerland of America treated me to a dozen waterfalls and mountains that did indeed look like the Alps. Since the journey is the best part of any trip, I highly recommend stopping at the little towns along the way for a taste of the old mountain west. 38 kush

You won’t be disappointed and your camera will be busy! I’m convinced that Pagosa Springs gets more snow in winter than the North Pole and Antarctica combined, which is why the short summer there is such a treat. With 3 MILLION acres of National Forest to play in, Pagosa Springs is an outdoors enthusiast’s dream. Located at 7,000 feet at the base of the Continental Divide, Pagosa Springs is full of rushing streams, archeological wonders, lakes galore, hiking and mountain biking trails, camping bliss and of course, the hot springs.

The Chimney Rock Archaeological Area is a 4,100-acre site containing the remains of the Ancestral Puebloan People, formerly known by the Navajo word “Anasazi,” as well as evidence of other prehistoric and historic uses. . “The site provides a spectacular glimpse into the past, perhaps more so because so much of its history is unknown. But, beyond the mystery and speculation, it is most special and worth our protection as the home to a living culture where human beings were born, worked and played, built and farmed. As a place where they reflected on their world and their place in it.” Chimney Rock Archaeological Area is open May 15 through Sept. 30 for tours and special events. Tours are offered seven days a week. The first of four daily tours, averaging 2 1/2 hours, begins at 9:30 a.m., weather permitting, on a first-come, first-served basis. Other tours begin at 10:30 a.m., 1 and 2 p.m. Groups of 10 or more are required to make reservations. Visitors walk about one mile on the tour, which is at an elevation of 7,600 feet. The walk is in two stages: the first is the Great Kiva Trail — a barrier-free, smooth, paved trail of gentle grades. The second — the Pueblo Trail — is a more challenging walk (along cliffs) that climbs 200 feet from the upper parking lot through a rocky incline to the mesa top. 40 kush

The clear lake waters of Arboles and Navajo Lake are less than an hour’s drive from Pagosa Springs and offer boating, fishing, jet skiing and waterskiing to the aqua-enthusiast. This is the way that mountain lakes should always be—pristine, surrounded by unmatched beauty and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The Navajo Lake marina has almost everything for boating and water skiing enthusiasts. The Two Rivers marina sells fuel, ice, tackle, boating supplies, snacks and accessories; has boat slips and mooring buoys; and a restroom on the dock. A 200-foot breakwater protects one of the longest ramps in the state, and three large parking areas provide ample marina parking. If you don’t have a boat, don’t worry; there are several different types of watercraft available for rent. Spend one of the best days of your life on a boat here.

Pagosa Springs most famous building is The Springs Resort and Spa. You don’t have to be a tycoon to enjoy the amenities at The Springs, either. The public is welcome to enjoy their outdoor hot springs, pools and in the summer months, every Wednesday the hotel hosts a concert series called Sounds at the Springs. Live music, great food and drinks, vendors and a billion stars await you. After a long weekend of playing in Colorado’s most beautiful land, it’s not a bad idea to check in to the spa for a massage! Enjoy your trip and remember to take lots and lots of pictures.

This is the translated Chinese saying that Denver attorney and panelist Rob Corry opened with at the KUSH Cannabis Seminar held June 8 at Denver’s Colorado Convention Center. Indeed, times are exciting in the Colorado Medical Marijuana (MMJ) industry and they are only bound to get more interesting in the coming months, following the recent passage of two bills that will tremendously change the way it’s regulated throughout the state. More than 500 attendees listened intently as expert panelists did their best to clarify the changes in law, answer questions, and address concerns in order to help prepare those working in the industry for the fast-approaching deadlines that come along with the new rules. Dispensary owners, primary caregivers, people who make infused edibles, and growers alike are scrambling to ensure they’re operating legally by the time the bills go into full effect July 1, 2011. “There’s a lot of smart people here with different takes on what’s going on,” said Denver dispensary owner Zach Maas, who attended the event hoping to gain some clarity on the issues and hear what various experts in the field had to say. Panelists included: Corry, a civil rights and criminal defense attorney who specializes in marijuana; Matt Brown, executive director of Colorado CannaBusiness Consultants; Warren Edson, one of the leading MMJ lawyers in the state; Mason Tvert, co-founder and executive director of Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation (SAFER); Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) co-founder Rob Kampia; Dan Steinberg and Greg Berard of EMC2 Billing, a payment processing company specializing in obtaining reliable

payment acceptance solutions for dispensaries; Attorney Bob Dill, whose practice is concentrated in the areas of complex civil litigation, business law, and liquor and gaming licensing; and Matt D. Cook, one of the authors of House Bill 1284 and a regulatory law enforcement specialist who oversees the Colorado Department of Revenue’s enforcement line of business, which currently includes gaming, liquor, and tobacco enforcement, and will soon include MMJ.

Owner of City Floral, Matthew Wickstrom, also came to the event in search of clarification on the new bills. “I just wanted to hear what the speakers had to say, get up to date, and hear different opinions,” Wickstrom said. “I’m trying to get all angles on it.” While the majority of attendees came as a result of confusion and panic over the bills that were signed by Gov. Bill Ritter only 24 hours before the event, some came for slightly different reasons. “I’ve read the bill so I was looking for some new information,” said Denver attorney Joel Russman. “But what I found interesting was the reaction of the audience... it’s clear there’s a lot of confusion and near panic about the coming deadlines.” Although many questions and concerns were addressed throughout the evening, it was clear that for as many questions that were answered, even more questions remain as legislators and law enforcement officials are working to try and interpret the new laws and apply them into regulations. “I don’t think anybody understands the laws, including the lawyers and the legislators,” said Mitch Hamilton, Glendale dispensary owner, adding that he thinks everyone is doing their best and was pleased to hear varying angles on the issues. 48 kush

“There are so many gaps in the laws; it’s very vague,” said Ray C., owner of Doob Tubes, a California company that provides airtight packaging solutions for the cannabis industry. “Obviously we’re very concerned with the changes.” During the closing Q&A session with the panelists, many people expressed concern over the dispensary licensing fees, which vary depending on the scope of the operation and start at $7,500, but could be as high as $18,000. All fees are due Aug. 1, only weeks after the bills were signed by the governor. A number of people also asked about interpretation of specific bullet points within the bills, and panelist Cook fielded the majority of questions relating to how the bills will translate into regulation. “I’m glad he’s here,” said MMJ grower Thad Cummins about Cook. “He’s the one who’s got to figure out the law.” Panelist Kampia, co-founder of MPP—a Washington, D.C.-based organization devoted to reforming marijuana laws—said it was refreshing to be in a room full of people having an adult discussion about the real issues involved with MMJ. 50 kush

After hearing that KushCon Colorado (held at the Colorado Convention Center in April) was way bigger than anyone expected, Kampia volunteered to speak at the seminar, which was hosted by Kush magazine,, Red Bull, and EMC2. He said he gleaned a lot not only from the attendees raising their concerns and asking questions, but also from his fellow panelists, including government officials responsible for overseeing the regulation of MMJ. He said he especially enjoyed listening to Dill and Cook discuss how they’re looking to apply alcohol, tobacco, and gaming regulations to the MMJ industry, as this is something MPP is working on with lobbyists on a national level. “We’re at a much higher level of political discourse than I’ve seen in any other states,” Kampia said. Crystal Guess, who volunteers for the Women’s Marijuana Movement, said she came to the event to learn about the legal changes and to continue being involved in the movement. “This is such an exciting movement and such an exciting industry,” she said. “It’s been very interesting to learn about all the different aspects, but just as many answers as it gave, it asks as many questions.”

Decisions can be tough. With so many top notch shows in our wonderful

state this month, it was really hard for us to choose the cream of the crop. Summer 2010 is almost halfway gone, which may be a depressing thought but should also serve as motivation for you to get off your butt and see a concert. Take a look at all of the aural ecstasy filing into Colorado in the coming weeks and do something about it!

Silversun Pickups

Natalie Merchant

8.7.10 @ Soma

8.14.10 @ Spreckels Theatre

The Silversun Pickups are simply delightful. Between lead singer Brian Aubert’s enchanting vocals and hints of the early 90’s indiegrunge-rock heyday, it’s pretty hard to listen to the entire Swoon or Carnavas albums without liking this band. The Los Angeles natives, who are part of Dangerbird Records and the Silver Lake community, have been touring extensively since Swoon and come back home to please fellow Californians to the south on this lovely night at Soma.

One of the founding members and driving forces behind 10,000 Maniacs in the 1980’s, Natalie Merchant moved on with her solo career in 1993 and hasn’t looked back. Her wonderful voice and powerful words remain timeless and will send chills down the iciest of spines. Expect a packed house and a beautiful performance at Spreckels on this Saturday night.

HARD Fest w/ Crystal Castles + Sinden + Proxy + Destructo

Lady Gaga 7.28.10 @ Pepsi Center (Denver) Lady Gaga is easily the biggest pop star in the world right now. One might say it’s a Gaga world and we’re all just living in it. And while many times pop stardom doesn’t require much unique talent, Stefani Germanotta is an incredibly talented woman with a long career ahead of her. As with everything she does (music videos, outfits, collaborations, etc) Lady Gaga concerts are a huge production with startling outfits, spectacular lights, flawless choreography, and real live music... not pre-recorded songs with bad lip syncing. Yes, we’re looking at you Ke$ha. Gaga is visiting Denver on her Monster’s Ball Tour and may not be back for a while, so don’t miss this show at the Pepsi Center!

8.9.10 @ Ogden Theatre (Denver) HARD events have been growing steadily over the last 2 years under the direction of Gary Richards (Destructo), building up to this summer US tour that features Crystal Castles. Based mostly in Los Angeles, HARD always brings out the best and brightest in the electro dance community. Crystal Castles recently released their second full length album with some stellar songs like “Vietnam” and “Celestica”. CC live shows are equal parts ear shattering, mind blowing, and spirit lifting. This is a really solid lineup all together, so get ready to dance and scoot your booty down to Ogden Theatre.

The Temper Trap 8.10.10 @ Ogden Theatre (Denver) With their debut album Conditions being released just last year, The Temper Trap are quickly becoming one of the most buzzed indie bands around these days. Their smooth, atmospheric sound has been featured in a slew of commercials via their hit song “Sweet Disposition”. A 5-piece band performs live and has gotten

rave reviews during their recent tour. These Aussie boys are certainly worth getting familiar with, and you can start with this show!

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros 8.11.10 @ Ogden Theatre (Denver) Another ‘indie’ band quickly working their way into the mainstream and iPods around the world, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros are a solid talent worth the recent hype. Band leader Alex Ebert (Ima Robot) is taking their psychedelic country folk sound to places that leave you feeling comfortable. And that’s a pretty good way to describe their sound on the whole: comfortable and triumphant. Their song “Home” from 2009’s Up From Below has been on play in our headphones for months. Check them out August 11th in Denver.

Rodrigo Y Gabriela + Xavier Rudd & Izintaba 8.20.10 @ Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Morrison) Rodrigo y Gabriela are an acoustic rhythm guitar duo, natives of Mexico, and got their start playing underground bars and pubs in Dublin, Ireland. Their smooth style of dueling guitars is so simple that it needs no extravagant setup to blow a crowd away. Another great show at Red Rocks that is certain to fill your heart and soul with good vibrations.

Chromeo + Holy Ghost! 8.16.10 @ House of Blues

Here is a golden opportunity to dust off those dancing shoes and two-step your ass off! Chromeo is one of the funnest shows on the road, and fellow New Yorkers Holy Ghost! certainly know how to make people move. Chromeo most recently released their single “Night By Night” with an album likely on the way this year. Holy Ghost! released an EP in late spring and have been touring the world since. Both put on a lovely show, and both will make your feet hurt come Tuesday morning.,

As reported recently in the Daily Camera, Boulder medical marijuana providers are trying to comply with the new state regulations set forth in HB 1284, recently signed into law by Governor Bill Ritter. It is anticipated that over half of the state’s 1,100 dispensaries will be forced out of business. The law requires dispensaries to register with the state by August 1, 2010, grow seventy percent of their own marijuana as of September 1, 2010, as well as comply with numerous other requirements such as criminal background checks for owners, officers and their employees. For those without huge financial resources, ramping up to grow this quantity of marijuana could be the biggest obstacle to overcome. Some owners with local dispensaries have estimated that setting up a grow operation can cost upwards of $50,000 not to mention the additional cost of the city and state fees required under the new laws. In order to comply with this new grow requirement many owners are selling portions of their business to growers so they can collectively grow the 70% required to be legal. The key is making sure you remain legal under the law and some of these arrangements might be challenged. The new law also allows cities to decide whether they even want to have medical marijuana dispensaries at all. The town of Superior recently became the first in Boulder County to completely ban dispensaries. Others, such as Lafayette, Louisville and Longmont all have existing moratoriums on opening up new dispensaries into next year. Meanwhile on another note, on June 21, 2010 the Colorado Springs Gazette reported that sales of marijuana and marijuana products topped $1.6 million in the month of April generating $40,000 in tax revenues for the city. Marijuana sales have brought in over $120,000 in tax revenues for the first three months, whereas last year the city collected just over $100,000 for the entire year in tax revenues from sales of medical marijuana. Yet even with the increase of revenue for their city, a group of Colorado Springs citizens are collecting signatures to put an initiative on the ballot banning medical marijuana dispensaries altogether. Others see the industry as a group of legitimate businesses creating jobs, renting available space in vacant buildings and helping out people who need to earn a living in this challenging economy. No matter where you reside in Colorado, medical marijuana is a hot topic. Feel free to post your own opinion on 62 kush

With so many different technologies, gadgets, and techniques out there to help you produce a fruitful harvest, here is one that may have breezed by you - Aeropononic / Hydroponic foggers. Used for many horticultural applications, including root fogging, foliar feeding, grow room and greenhouse humidity generation, and even for low volume pesticide application, these ultrasonic foggers are a perfect aid for plants to grow above and below ground. An Aeroponic / Hydroponic fogger oscillates at a frequency of 2 MHZ, or two million vibrations per second, which at that frequency, nebulizes the water into cold / dry fog. It also generates an extremely small droplet of water (2.5 microns) which is small enough to be absorbed by roots and leaves on contact. This increases the effectiveness with an ultra low volume of liquid. With the application of a fogger, your plants metabolism is supercharged, thus maximizing yields, minimizing maintenance, and reducing operating costs by providing plant roots with the optimum Oxygenation and uptake capacity. Roots fed with an Aeroponic / Hydroponic fogger develop single and multi-hairs, which significantly increase surface area, and the ability to metabolize nutrients.

Systems can run between $350-$400, but are well worth it. Setting one up can be very simple, and there are many tutorials online to help you. With a little ingenuity, and another $50 spent at Home Depot, you’ll be in a “fog” in no time. Keep in mind that every set up is different. What works in one situation my not work in another. But we can conclude that with certain tools, and tips, (and maybe the addition of an Aeroponic / Hydroponic fogger) one should be able to optimize their harvest. Again we suggest that you seek out advice from your local Hydro shop, and ask many questions. Look into an Aeroponic / Hydroponic Fogger, and KUSH is quite sure that it will help bring you closer to a successful harvest.

Without endorsing any particular fogger, KUSH has provided the following links for you to check out: • • •

Good luck, and happy growing!!

Watercourse 837 E. 17th Ave. Denver, CO 80218 303-832-7313 Watercourse is City, O’ City’s sister restaurant, but it offers a more traditional, yet still hip, approach to a sit down dinner. It is still casual and labels itself as a provider of “vegetarian comfort food”. Their prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is relaxed but still fun with huge colorful murals on the walls. The only downside is that there is usually a wait but it is well worth their amazing banana bread French toast, vegan milkshakes, and tomato curry soup. They also serve salads, pastas, fajitas, burritos, sandwiches, wraps and bruschetta. They are open Monday thru Friday from 6:30am to 10:00pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 10pm. Masalaa 3140 S. Parker Road Aurora, CO 80014 303-755-6272 Masalaa is a vegetarian Indian restaurant for the more adventurous herbivore. It offers the convenience of giving the customer confidence that everything on the menu is vegetarian. This restaurant specializes in Southern Indian cuisine, making it unique and also one of the most authentic Indian restaurants in the area. They have a separate menu from those looking for an entirely gluten-free meal and also have many vegan options. They offer a lunch buffet every day of the week, which is perfect for first timers wanting to try a little bit of everything, and also a dinner buffet every Thursday from 6 to 9pm. Their dosas, especially the masala dosa, are amazing and once paired with a mango lassi, you should expect to be in heaven. The only downsides are the ambiance and décor, which are lackluster. They are open Monday thru Thursday f rom 11:30am to 2:30pm and 5:30pm to 10:00pm, Friday from 11:30am to 2:30pm and 5:30pm to 10:30pm, Saturday from 12pm to 3pmand 5pm to 10:30pm, and Sunday 12pm to 3pm and 5pm to 10pm. 84 kush

BOULDER: Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant 2010 16th Street Boulder, Colorado 80302 303-442-1485 Leaf is the perfect combination of a tranquil, spa-like atmosphere and gourmet but simple vegetarian food.

Leaf is also dedicated to environmental sustainability and serves Boulder’s own Organic Vodka 14 and Robert Sinskey’s biodynamic Merlot.

For those not interested in faux meat V.G. Burgers also offer salads, wraps, burritos and quinoa bowls. Their chai made with hemp milk is the perfect companion to any meal and a vegan chocolate shake is the perfect indulgence. Their mission statement speaks of zero waste, humane treatment of animals and an all-organic lifestyle, which is solidified by their 100% wind powered facility and their entirely compostable packaging. Open daily from 11am to 9pm, their only downfall being that the prices are not fast food prices. This restaurant is perfect for the vegan who craves a bacon cheeseburger or even just for the health-conscious carnivore craving fast food.

by JB WOODS AND MARY WOODS When Vincent Palazzotto was growing up in New Jersey, he and his family saw first hand what it’s like to struggle and try to make ends meet. “There were times when my mom and I had to rely on food stamps,” says Palazzotto. These hard life lessons remain with a person throughout their life. While some will use them as an excuse to be apathetic, others like Palazzotto use it as motivation for a greater purpose. Vincent Palazazzotto and John Comandari channeled this energy into co-founding the Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of The Rockies, or MMAPR. Their mission is simple —help indigent medical marijuana patients. Watching Denver Channel 8, Palazzotto discovered the issues behind the medical marijuana movement. “I needed to find my place within the medial marijuana community,” says Palazzotto. “I kept asking myself ‘Where do homeless people medicate safely?’ or if you live in government-provided housing, do you risk using medical marijuana to relieve your pain, even though you might lose a roof over your head.’ These are difficult questions that deserve an answer as Colorado moves forward with House Bill 10-1284 and Senate Bill 109. Just like the patients that MMAPR serves, the organization is voluntary and relies on the help of many people and

organizations. The people involved, such as the board members, must raise $3,000 per year for the benefit of MMAPR. Volunteers include Miguel Valdez, who decided to use his time by attending industry meetings and trade events to spread the word to the medical marijuana community. Participating organizations include dispensaries, growers, clothing and financial companies. Publications such as Kush Magazine are also strong supporters. Mike Lerner, publisher of Kush Magazine, saw the need and benefits of MMAPR early on. “We provided support to MMAPR at the Colorado Cannabis Convention in April. Anytime the Kush family can help other people within our community, it is the right thing to do,” said Mike. (continued on page 90)

88 kush

kush 89

MMAPR uses these opportunities to share information with patients and industry members. They will also “co-brand” an event to include their affiliated members like Kush Magazine. “We had a dailybuds logo at the Kush event to show our appreciation for what Mike had done for us,” says Palazzotto. “Everyone benefits that is part of the organization.” Cornerstone Business Resources aligned themselves with MMAPR by offering credit card processing. “We give a percentage of our revenue to MMAPR each time a patient purchases medicine at one of our dispensary partners,” says Russell Harverson of Cornerstone. They would even like to offer specially designed credit card swiping machines that are in different colors or themes to represent a particular cause. For example, a pink machine could represent a contribution being made toward breast cancer research. Palazzotto says the vast majority of people are overwhelmingly positive toward the cause. “We all need to be reminded that the 20th Amendment in Colorado is rooted in care giving. While House Bill 1284 or Senate Bill 109 will provide a framework to operate legally, we should not lose sight of the patients who seek relief from their physical impairments, especially those who have less, or need us the most.” Palazzotto quickly reaffirms that care giving is at the core of the movement. MMAPR operates on a platform with many different moving parts. The first step is to identify medical marijuana patients who need some form of subsidy for medicine, medical evaluations, or other services due to their condition physically or economically. As with any non-profit today, funding is a challenge. Therefore, MMAPR focuses on the patients who are in the “worst of the worst” situations. Patients with AIDS, cancer or severe economic challenges are treated first through a network of dispensaries and growers that discount their medicine and contribute a percentage back to MMAPR. The discount for patients can be up to a 50% savings for medical marijuana, and evaluations by a Doctor are at a reduced cost or no charge. For many patients, this can make a substantial difference in the quality of their lives. Many people have lost their health insurance or cannot afford medication because of the economic situation.

IT SEEMS THAT EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK in the grocery stores lately, there is an influx of “Gluten-Free” labels on foods. Even old staples like Rice Chex cereal are touting the mark. What were once specialty items at health food stores are inching their way to the mainstream. Gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, is the common denominator in most of the grain-based products we eat, such as cereals, breads, and pasta. So why the sudden shift to a life without gluten? For some people who suffer from celiac disease, gluten is the enemy. Celiac disease is an autoimmune dysfunction that causes serious digestive issues for those who suffer. When someone with the disease eats gluten, it attacks their immune system which responds by damaging the villi-tiny, fingerlike projections in the small intestine that absorb the nutrients from food. Once considered a rare disease, celiac affects 1 in 133 Americans. More common, however, is a gluten intolerance that may make you uncomfortable, but the symptoms are fleeting. Symptoms often include fatigue, weight loss, diarrhea, gas, bloating and vomiting. These seem like pretty serious symptoms, so why the barrage of gluten-free offerings? The answers are many. America today eats more processed and fast foods than ever. So if you’re suffering from stomach issues, the first thing you should consider is what you do eat. Rice, breads, pasta and cereals are the most commonly avoided foods on most weight-loss diets because they are high in simple carbohydrates 94 kush

and sugar, which turn to fat. So while many people think they may have a gluten allergy (a misnomer: gluten intolerance is not a food allergy), the real story might be that you are just eating too much sugar. The only real way to tell is to eliminate gluten from your diet and see how it goes. You may find that you are replacing breads and grains with fruits and vegetables which will make you feel better, without question. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer through the symptoms of celiac disease or severe gluten intolerance, your quality of life is bound to improve. If you decide to try a gluten-free existence, it’s important to replace B vitamins, as not all gluten-free foods are enriched with vitamins. B vitamins are abundant in wheat and will be missed if you don’t supplement them. Fiber is also an issue, so make sure to raise your daily intake of beans, fruits and vegetables. Try switching to grains such as cornmeal, chia, flax, kasha, millet and quinoa. Since gluten-free lifestyles are becoming the norm (even Oprah gave up gluten on her latest 21-day cleanse and is planning a glutenfree cooking segment on her network), make certain that you don’t make the mistake of over doing dairy and forgetting your fiber. You will feel worse! As with any change to your diet, do your homework and if your symptoms persist, by all means see a physician. If all you need is a lifestyle change to improve your physical well-being, a limited amount of grains is good, so long as they are whole grain and not processed. Good luck and stay healthy.

Dining outdoors is one of the highlights of summertime. Whether you have a backyard barbeque or go out on the town, food never tastes as good as when it’s served on a patio or terrace, on the sidewalks of the city or a sun-soaked deck.

DJ’s Berkeley Café DJ’S IS ALWAYS PACKED and for good reason. This breakfast/ brunch/lunch spot is really a joint with a classy menu, an espresso bar and loose leaf tea selection and huge, delicious portions. The biscuits and gravy are just the ticket after a night on the town. 5 stars for the peanut butter and jelly-stuffed French toast! They don’t serve booze here which is an ok thing considering that a large percentage of the people eating on Saturday and Sundays after 11 a.m. still smell like distilleries. It’s definitely a comfort food, fix me up kind of place! AS tempted as you may be, don’t take a food coma nap on the patio. There are others waiting for your spot and they NEED Eggs Benedict!

SHRIMP COCKTAIL If you are using frozen shrimp, the safest way to defrost them is in a bowl of ice water in the refrigerator. I like to buy tail-on, shell-on, deveined shrimp. Of course, use what you can find at the markets. INGREDIENTS For the shrimp: 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning 1 lemon, halved 1 teaspoon granulated garlic 1 clove garlic, finely minced 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon salt 24 extra large tail-on raw shrimp (more if you are using smaller shrimp) For the cocktail sauce: 1/2 cup chili sauce 1 cup ketchup8* Âź cup THC olive oil 1 tablespoon horseradish 1 dash Worcestershire sauce Juice of 1/2 lemon 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco 1/2 clove garlic, finely minced 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

* The chef specifically recommends Heinz chili sauce – it’s not very spicy and has a nice sweet taste. If you use other type of hot chvvvili sauce, just start with a couple tablespoons first, then taste and adjust.

METHOD 1. To prepare the cocktail sauce, mix all the cocktail sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. 2. Have a large bowl of ice water ready and set near the sink. To a 8-quart pot of water, add the Old Bay, lemon, granulated garlic, garlic, chili powder, and salt. Bring to a boil. Add the shrimp to the pot and when the water returns to a boil, the shrimp should be done! The shrimp should be bright pink. 3. Immediately drain and place the shrimp into the ice bath to cool for 2 minutes. Peel the shrimp (leaving the tail-on.) Drain and serve with the cocktail sauce.

TRADITIONAL CEVICHE INGREDIENTS 2 lbs of firm, fresh red snapper fillets (or other firm-fleshed fish), cut into 1/2 inch pieces, completely deboned 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice ¼ cup THC olive oil 1/2 red onion, finely diced 1 cup of chopped fresh seeded tomatoes 1 serrano chili, seeded and finely diced 2 teaspoons of salt Dash of ground oregano Dash of Tabasco or a light pinch of cayenne pepper Cilantro Avocado Tortillas or tortilla chips DIRECTIONS 1. In a non-reactive casserole dish, place the fish, the onion, the tomatoes, the chili, the salt, the Tabasco, and the oregano. Cover with THC olive oil, lime and lemon juice. Let it sit covered in the refrigerator for about an hour, stir occasionally, making sure all the fish gets exposed to the acidic lime and lemon juices. Let sit for several

hours, giving time for the flavors to blend. 2. During the marinating process the fish will change from pinkish grey and translucent to whiter in color and opaque. 3. Serve with the chopped cilantro and the slices of avocado with heated tortillas for ceviche tacos or with tortilla chips.

CRAB CLAWS WITH A CLASSIC CAJUN ROMULADE INGREDIENTS 1 qt Mayonnaise; (not salad 4 Eggs; hard boiled 3 tb Creole or dark mustard ½ cup THC olive oil 4 tb White vinegar 4 tb Fresh parsley; chopped 2 tb Paprika 2 tb Worcestershire sauce 3 tb Horseradish sauce 4 Cloves garlic; chopped Salt and pepper; to taste PREPERATION Whirl all the ingredients in blender or processor, add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate 12 hours before using. Will keep several weeks in refrigerator. This sauce is basically for use with Crab Claws, as a cocktail sauce, but can be used for many other things.

ASIAN TOMATO CUCUMBER AND ONION SALAD INGREDIENTS 1 large cucumber 2 tomatoes, seeded and cut into wedges ¼ red onion, thinly sliced ¼ THC olive oil 1/4 cup rice vinegar

2 tablespoons lime juice 1 teaspoon white sugar, or to taste 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 3 tablespoons chopped peanuts (optional)1


DIRECTIONS Peel the cucumber in stripes lengthwise with a vegetable peeler, alternating skinned stripes with peel for a decorative effect. Slice the cucumber in half lengthwise, and then thinly slice. Place the cucumber in a salad bowl with the tomato and red onion, and mix together. Pour the rice vinegar,THC olive oil, and lime juice into a separate bowl, and stir in the sugar until dissolved. Pour the dressing over the salad;mix, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes. Just before serving, stir in the cilantro and sprinkle with chopped peanuts.

INGREDIENTS 1 fresh pineapple 1/2 green bell pepper, cut into thin strips 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips 3/4 cup finely diced jicama 2 scallions, thinly sliced 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper Âź cup THC vegetable oil 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

MOM’S PICNIC CHICKEN SALAD INGREDIENTS 3 peaches 1/4 Cup THC olive oil 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 lb cooked chicken 2/3 cup hazelnuts 1/2 cup cilantro salt pepper 8 cups spinach leaves DIRECTIONS 1. Peel the peaches: this is easier if you blanch them first by putting them in a pan of simmering water for a minute. (If you use nectarines, it is unnecessary to peel them). 2. In a medium salad bowl, whisk together the THC olived oil and vinegar. Add the chicken, peaches, hazelnuts and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Add the spinach leaves and toss again. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve immediately, or refrigerate for up to a day; it gets better as it sits.

by JAY E Considered to be the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare would probably be elated to know that his works are still being reproduced world-wide, in every language, and by many different interpretations, to this day. Colorado’s finest thespians are bringing his work to life this summer at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, presented by Blue Mountain Arts. Described as “One of the top Shakespeare Festivals in the U.S.” by TIME Magazine, KUSH Magazine is backing that claim, thus why we’re suggesting you check this out……. Shakespeare produced most of his famous works between 1589 and 1613, just three years before his death. His writings ranged from Comedies and Histories, to Tragedies, and Tragicomedies (or what we know as Romances today). The Colorado Shakespeare Festival has chosen three very different pieces, that show the depth of the brilliant writer. Running concurrently through July and August at the Mary Rippon Theater, is King Lear, The Taming Of The Shrew, and Measure For Measure. King Lear is a powerful family drama, and an explosive political epic. With the division of his kingdom among three daughters - his country, and life are seemingly unraveling around him. This tragedy explores the most basic questions of human existence, love and loss, and good and evil. The Taming Of The Shrew is a romantic comedy where the shrewish Kate is pitted against the fortune-seeking Petruchio. This playful battle of the sexes is filled with disguise, deception, and mischievous behavior. Shakespeare explores the institution of marriage, and the paths in which men and women seek out love. 112 kush


Measure For Measure is one of Shakespeare’s most provocative, and unconventional dramas, touching on issues of mercy, justice, truth, and their relationship to pride and humility. With a story wrapped around sexual intrigue, sex outside of marriage, and the sacrifice of virginity, it seems like Shakespeare would have made a great Soap Opera writer. It’s no wonder that his themes are still ever-present within our media, and overall culture. Some bodies of work, whether literary, musical, or artistic seem to transcend time effortlessly. These classics have stood the test of time for a reason, so get out to the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, and absorb this cultural experience.

King Lear

July: 1-3, 20-21, 29-30 August: 7-8

The Taming Of The Shrew July: 9-10, 22-23, 27-28, 31 August: 1, 5-6

Measure For Measure

July: 15-16, 17-18, 27-28, 31 August: 1, 5-6

You can tell a lot about a person based on their preferred weed-smoking technique and apparatus. With all the different ways to partake of your favorite combustible treats, it’s important to know exactly what your smoking method says about you:


You’re a college student who’s renting your apartment with absolutely no intention of ever receiving your deposit back. Those bong water stains on the floor? Not your problem. Let your landlord take care of that when you move out in three years. Right now, you’ve got bigger problems to deal with, like the fact that your roommate’s girlfriend keeps humiliating you with lethal headshots in Call of Duty. You don’t have time to pass a joint or light a pipe every couple of minutes, because you’re too busy trying your hardest to avoid virtual assassination every thirty five seconds. Now get back to your game! You still have to pull an all-night study session for finals tomorrow, remember?

Pipe You’re

a clean, efficient person who absolutely hates cleaning up bong water. A pipe offers all the convenience of stay-at-home smoking without all the impending danger of a big, clunky bong full of filthy, gooey liquid. As an added bonus, your pipe can easily be taken on the road if necessary. It’s not as covert as a joint, but it’s much better for you because you suck at rolling joints. A pipe is a versatile, all-purpose smoking apparatus that mirrors your personality perfectly. Pipes are like the Willem Dafoe of smoking devices: they make everything a little bit awkward, but they’re versatile enough to fit a ny role. 118 kush

Joint You’re a social and adventurous person. If you’re smoking a joint, then you’re in one of three places: at Bob Marley’s grave, at a rock and/or rap concert, or ducking behind the auditorium with five other dads during the intermission of your kid’s poorly-executed, but surprisingly heartwarming third grade theater production of “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” You don’t buy into the whole “smoke before you go” mentality. Instead, you prefer to smoke as you go and you welcome others to join in. This will pay off big time toward the end of your kid’s play, when you get to the Fizzy Lifting Drink scene and a third-grader dressed as an old man gets flown around the stage on cables while pretending he’s not completely terrified.

Vaporizer You are a seasoned veteran of smoking. You’re pro-level. You’re a formidable powerhouse of smoking efficiency. You’re like the Kobe Bryant of weed. Vaporizers are by far the most efficient, effective means of smoking. They’re also the healthiest and cleanest smoking method, which demonstrates that you’re concerned with your general well-being. You also probably realized that, while a vaporizer may require a considerable upfront investment, you’re going to save a lot of money on the back end (thanks to the vaporizer’s incredible efficiency). As an added bonus, you get to use the word “vapors” a lot more than most people do in everyday conversation, which makes you much cooler than everyone else.


You’re a planner. You’re always one step ahead of the game. You’re also heading out to a place that’s sure to be a) incredibly interesting, and b) not even remotely smoke-friendly. Whether it’s a laser light show at the observatory, your cousin’s clown college graduation party, or an advanced screening of Toy Story 3 in 3D, you’re fully prepared to exponentially increase the awesomeness of your experience. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and reap the benefits of your tremendous foresight. Also, is there anything better than eating and getting high at the same time? That’s called “multitasking” and you’re great at it.
