from the editors
1996 California voted in the first ballot initiative regarding medical marijuana, commonly referred to as the Compassionate Use Act. Since then, 13 states and the District of Columbia have passed various forms of medical marijuana legislation, ranging from ballot measures, Senate bills and initiatives. But Colorado is the only state that voted in the use of medical marijuana as an amendment to the state constitution in 2000. While it has taken 10 years to finally put that amendment into what has now become HB 1284 and SB 109, Colorado has become the national poster child for how to regulate medical marijuana on a statewide basis and is leading the way by becoming the first state to provide regulatory framework for dispensaries, growers, edible manufacturers and physicians who provide medical marijuana patients medication or services. While the new legislation has many questionable regulations that will be open to interpretation and challenges, at least Colorado is acknowledging that as a state, it has an obligation to its citizens and medical marijuana related businesses to try and set forth a set of laws and regulations that will guide this industry. In an interview with Matt Cook (p. 54) Senior Director from Colorado’s Department of Revenue, he states that his role in helping to decipher the immense set of regulations set forth in this newly adopted law, is one of establishing a level of trust between the medical marijuana industry, the public and the government. Cook says that Colorado has changed the face of medical marijuana by legitimizing businesses that provide medical marijuana. This is not only a huge step for Colorado, but one for the entire United States as well. Since Colorado, from the inception of Amendment 20 allowed medical marijuana businesses to be for profit, the state seized an opportunity to create a new source of taxable revenue. In fact other states, such as California, which only allow medical marijuana to be provided by not for profit businesses, could benefit by watching and learning from Colorado’s example. Just like our constitutional forefathers who wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, laws can never be absolute in their interpretation. In a recent “rules meeting” in front of hundreds of people from the medical marijuana industry, “Cook began his presentation by acknowledging the fact that HB 10-1284 is not a perfect piece of legislation and that it needs a lot of work. Cook then recognized that it will take a partnership for HB 101284 to move forward and that he is humble to create those partnerships. He then committed that his department would offer fair, honest and faithful communication, and that he would create work groups that fairly represent the industry to help with the rule making process.” While this is only the beginning of deciphering all of the nuances of HB 10-1284, Colorado should be applauded for Leading the Way, and acknowledging that medical marijuana providers, users and ancillary businesses are real businesses in the eyes of the state. Hopefully, Colorado will lead by example, making other states set forth regulations allowing medical marijuana providers to become real businesses nationwide. Kush Editorial Board, www.dailybuds.com

Tucked away in the Highland neighborhood, Duo is primarily a dinner spot, but their brunch menu is not to be missed. The décor is welcoming and warm and will send you instantly into a spell of relaxation and comfort. The service is always impeccable and the chefs take their food very seriously. Known as the “farm to table” restaurant, Duo works with local farmers and the result is fresh, delicious food that supports local businesses. They serve excellent organic coffee and if you have worked up an appetite, try the Red Eye Biscuits--house made biscuits and Canadian bacon topped with sunny side up eggs and red eye gravy.
Best Lunch Date LINDSAY’S BOULDER DELI AT HAAGEN DAZS 1148 Pearl St, Boulder Lunch dates can be tricky. Going out to lunch is a friendly affair so it is advisable to avoid serious talks or anything to heavy on a lunch date. Lunch, if not rushed however, is a wonderful way to really “hang out” with someone-- get to know their quirks and see what they order on a sandwich—the Little Things begin here. Lunch dates are perfect for a new crush and there is no better place to fall in seriously deep like than Lindsay’s. Pick a perfect autumn afternoon, stroll the Pearl Street Mall and ramble on in to Lindsay’s for lunch and duh, ice cream. Lindsay, the owner (duh again) is often behind the counter peddling her amazing menu. A little known fact: Lindsay’s mother is a Cordon Bleu graduate and helped design the menu so you know it is magnifique! The sandwiches are perfect for sharing and come with the option to “over-stuff ”. Sharing is recommended because have I mentioned that there is ice cream?
And funny, aforementioned ice cream goes really well with bananas and syrups and nuts and whipped cream. I promise you will never forget your banana split date or the people watching on the mall. Befriend Lindsay’s Boulder Deli on Facebook for incredible daily specials. Lindsay also posts a trivia question each day and if you know the answer, even more savings! Oh and read the whole thing because she usually reveals the answer immediately following the question. Added bonus: Boulder Rx, Boulder’s newest medical cannabis center, is right downstairs; so if you are looking for a place to get medicine with easy access to ice cream, you have found the promised land.
Best Dinner Date CUBA CUBA 1173 Delaware St, Denver Nothing impresses more than a well thought-out date restaurant. If you have graduated to dinner, then things must be progressing and perhaps there is hope that the dinners may one day turn to breakfasts. Cuba Cuba is the perfect place to show that you aren’t a chain restaurant flunky and that you care about ambiance as much as great food. Known for having a near perfect mojito, Cuba Cuba is romantic and exotic and while you’re sipping your mojito on the candlelit patio, you are certain to fall into the magical mood that Cuba Cuba creates. The restaurant itself is a quaint Victorian home turned into restaurant; so visiting is like walking into the world’s coolest dinner party. The Caribbean vibe is alive and well and one publication even voted Cuba Cuba the best restaurant to “get lucky on a third date”. Cuba Cuba makes people relax and the mojito thing certainly helps. The real treasure though is the food. The paella is out of this world and the mahi is always fresh and prepared with spice and tang that only the Cubans know how to produce. There is live music on Thursdays and no dining reservations are accepted, which isn’t the worst thing considering the bar. Enjoy!

so often, a miraculous gift is presented to us tiny little earthlings that changes our world. We’ve been blessed with oxygen, water, slurpees, and ketchup... just to name a few. True to it’s name, the God’s Gift strain of Kush brings cannabis smokers something that changes the game. And whether or not you believe in a higher power, everyone will agree that this strain is purely divine. When I went to pick this strain up from one of my favorite dispensaries, expectations were high. Beyond the name, a lot of friends had tried and spoken very highly of it. One whiff out of the jar and I had to smile, knowing for sure that this was going to be good. That sweet, dank smell was a refreshing hit to the senses. My nose hairs were tickled and my heart rate picked up a little with the prospect of how I was about to feel. I took it home and got down to business, smoking out of my trusty old glass pipe, “Bob”. Game on. God’s Gift is a hybrid strain that really felt more like an indica to me. It’s a calm and relaxing Kush that fits with a walk in the park on a sunny day just as well as a rainy day snuggled up in bed, watching a movie. There was a real nice lift in my mental state, which was paired with a soothing tranquility throughout the body. And while that may sound like the exact description of a nice hybrid, I still think this one falls into my ‘chill’ strain category. Certainly no anxiety,
paranoia, or freak outs. God’s Gift is a bit of a creeper too... really sneaks up on you. I was a little bit worried 5 or 10 minutes after smoking when the buzz hadn’t hit yet. But then like a damned magic show, it kicks in and stuck around quite pleasantly for over two hours. The genetics of God’s Gift seem to be debated quite a bit throughout cyberspace. Commonly thought to come from an OG Kush x Grandaddy Purple mix, some say God’s Gift is Mendo Purps x Killer Queen. Others have said it’s Grandaddy Purp x Grape Ape. If you grow, I’d imagine you can try any of those combos and get some pretty fine Kush that is or closely resembles God’s Gift. Personally, I try to not get too caught up in all of that technical mumbo-jumbo because in the end, names of the medication don’t really matter.... what matters is how it makes you feel. And God’s Gift has had me floating on cloud 9. Physically, this strain has really dense buds. Not the kind of bud you want to break up by hand for a joint or blunt. The taste is very sweet and, as stated before, the smell is pretty out of this world. God’s Gift has some very mixed colors -- dark green and deep purple buds with reddish orange hairs and sparkly crystals that really make it shine like the gem that it is. You’ll get quite a bit of good keef from the trichomes, which is a nice little bonus to this already wonderful gift. It’s a good looking strain overall, which is fitting for the feeling that it delivers. This is a Kush strain that is certainly worth a bit more than your average product. I will be getting it again, and would preach it’s quality to any marijuana connoisseur. God’s Gift has been delivered to our planet, and all religious views aside, we should be thanking ‘God’ for this delightful treat.

That’s the word from the Transportation Safety Administration, NORML, and Americans for Safe Access this year. Despite every-widening acceptance of the plant, patients should not assume they can fly with their medication. TSA spokesperson Suzanne Trevino said TSA officials at the nation’s 750 or so checkpoints screen more than 700 million passengers a year. If they find a federally illegal substance like marijuana, they alert local law enforcement. Patients should call ahead of their trip to ascertain the details of local law enforcement policy. The TSA says some state laws might not allow for interstate or intercountry possession. A sheriff’s spokesperson at San Francisco Airport, for example, said medical marijuana patients can fly wherever they want, but they should declare their medicine at the checkpoint. Patients must present their medical marijuana patient id card and can fly with no more than is stated on the card. Lauren Payne, lawyer for Americans for Safe Access – a patient advocacy group - stated “it’s best NOT to fly with medicine, EVEN if your flight never leaves your home state.” She knows of one California patient awaiting sentencing for flying out of SFO with three-quarters of an ounce of processed marijuana and two grams of concentrated cannabis. Another patient was arrested and tried for attempting to fly from Sacramento to New Orleans with three pounds of marijuana in his suitcase. Payne adds, “Any type of concentrate, including edibles, are arresteable without the proper paperwork.” California NORML spokesperson Dale Gieringer said Oakland, SFO, and LAX honor state medical marijuana law, while Burbank and San Diego are known not to. Each of the 14 medical marijuana states has different laws, and enforcement of those laws can
vary significantly by airport. The TSA said there is no master list of policies at each airport. Trevino highly discouraged trying to sneak medical marijuana through security, noting the TSA is keen to those who stash contraband in the small of their back and groin. The TSA is rolling out quarter of a million dollar, millimeter wave radars called Whole Body Imaging across the nation. The devices pick up non-metallic objects concealed on the body and are already catching marijuana hidden on passengers. Some patients report no trouble flying with medicine. In Missoula, Montana this August, an activist flew a growing marijuana plant
as carry-on from Michigan, using a commercial carrier. It’s now proudly displayed in the business window of the Montana Caregivers Network, patient Jason Christ told local news. “When I have a plant I am carrying across the states in a plane, it’s making the shock value wear off.” Payne says be careful out there. “I’m happy that most patients have no trouble traveling with medicine, as well they should be allowed to.” However, she hears “horror stories EVERY day about California law enforcement officers who are unwilling to abide by state law.”
There have always been mystical, magical characters throughout time. Not the kind of characters dreamt up by Hollywood, or in a J.K. Rowling book, but the real kind â€“ the kind that only comes around every decade or so â€“ the kind that leaves such an indelible mark in their field, and on society, that their name alone conveys its own energy.
It’s as though these character’s time on earth was spent doing exactly what they were supposed to do. People like Michelangelo, Einstein, Dali, Charlie Chaplin, Picasso, Louis Armstrong, Elvis, Bob Marley, Martin Luther King Jr., Cesar Chavez, Bill Gates, John Lennon, Magic Johnson, Bob Dylan, and these are just to name a few. Jimi Hendrix was this type of character. His name alone carries so much mystique, and energy. His music speaks for itself, and his legacy is stronger than ever. This month of September, KUSH would like to pay tribute to a true genius, and innovator in his field – James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix – Nov. 27th, 1942 – Sept. 18th, 1970. Considered to be the best electric guitarist in the history of rock music, Jimi Hendrix lived a very short, adventurous life, but managed to perfect his craft in that time. Popularizing the wah-wah pedal, and creating the distorted feedback was Hendrix’ mark of success. Coming from a long pedigree of playing with top R&B musicians, like Little Richard, Sam Cooke, and Jackie Wilson, Jimi was already doing amazing solos, and was looking to make a name for himself. That he did. As a huge star in Europe, he became “the guy”. That character that rises on its own, and is propelled by a “true” sensibility, and the purest of passions. Besides his technical skills and innovations within the field, Jimi Hendrix possessed that “true”-ness. His character is often imitated, and more often mutilated, but that energy that he spread for 28 years was great. It comes across in every gesture and note he ever played – if only even on DVD. If there’s a mystique about rock stars and the lifestyles they live, (and die) by, than Jimi set the mold. Living every day dressed in Royal Blue Velvet, and psychedelic pants, dating models, and smoking joints like cigarettes. Sex, Drugs, and Rock’n’Roll. This is the life that Jimi formed and portrayed to our world. Many have fallen suit, but none will ever live up to the character built by Hendrix. He was one of a kind, and he will always be missed. Thankfully we can appreciate him via many mediums, and keep his legacy alive.

or growers, one of the best ways to ensure the long term stability of your hard earned resin is to keep the temperature of your grow space moderate – no warmer than mid 80’s as a consistent trend. A few days of 90 degree heat during a heat spell won’t immediately degrade the resin, but grow rooms that run consistently above 90 day in and day out frequently have resin that “ambers” out sooner in the crop cycle and is generally less enjoyable to smoke. As resin matures, it turns from clear to cloudy to amber in color. This is natural to a certain degree at the end of the plant’s maturation cycle, but you don’t want the process to happen too early or too much. After THC builds up to a peak concentration in Cannabis, it begins to break down into other less psychoactive Cannabinoids. You want your room warm enough to promote good water and nutrient uptake (75-85 degrees while the lights are on), but not so hot that it can lead to degraded resin. The other major contributor to resin degradation is light. Consistent exposure to light during curing or storage can really injure the potency and the shelf life of the product. Growers should hang their crops in a cool, dark place while they dry, not in the grow space or anywhere else there is constant bright light. Cannabis consumers who leave their herb in glass jars in brightly lit rooms (like I used to do) will find that the buds just don’t store as well and lose some potency and flavor after just a few months. The same buds in the same jars stored in a cool, dark cupboard will keep their kick and their aroma much longer as they cure – up to 8 months or more. Ideally, Cannabis can be stored in a refrigerator once it is completely dry and in a tightly sealed container. Make sure the container is air
tight by placing a fresh leaf inside the jar and placing it in the fridge. If the leaf shows signs of drying out after a week, then upgrade your containers. Speaking of containers – not all of them are made equal. Small amounts of air leakage from your herb containers can cause your favorite buds to dry out or lose flavor and potency as the VOC’s gas off (VOC’s are Volatile Organic Compounds – basically the aroma and flavor molecules that are emanating from Cannabis). The plastic bags and prescription bottles that Cannabis is often sold in are not suitable for general storage. Transfer your herb into an air tight container after bringing it home. However, even the glass jars with hinged lids and rubber seal aren’t always air tight - especially as they get older and the rubber begins to get stiff. Container stores and house ware stores carry many different makes and models of storage containers intended to be airtight. Test them using the leaf test before buying a bunch of them. Many pot connoisseurs swear by glass, but polycarbonate containers can work just as well if the seal is tight. One advantage to polycarbonate containers is that they aren’t subject to breakage during transportation. However you grow it and store it, remember that resin can be sensitive to environmental degradation from heat, light and air. Even shake should receive proper post-harvest handling and storage if the grower intends to make hash or kief out of it. After all, hashish and kief are simply the result of collecting the resin from the plant material via separation. If you want the finest cold water hash, kief or other Cannabis concentrates – protect your resin from the plant through the harvest. You’ll be surprised at what a difference a little TLC can do for your resin and your smoking experience.

Facebook drew the ire of
cannabis activists countrywide
this September when they rejected an
advertisement for further decriminalizing the plant. The rejection highlighted ongoing disputes between the immensely popular web destination and its 500 million users.
On August 25, the Just Say Now campaign to legalize
cannabis nationwide blasted its tens of thousands of users with the announcment, ‘Facebook Censors Marijuana – Help Us Fight Back’. The political action group had ran a pro-legalization
advertisement that appeared on Facebook 38 million times until that week when Facebook started censoring it.
A Facebook spokesperson said they told Just Say Now the
ad in question – which featured a marijuana leaf – violated company policy.
“We don’t allow any images of drugs, drug paraphernalia,
“walled gardens” with overseers whose interests can overwrite
free speech, open communication, and in this case, essential political debate.”
“Voters in various districts nationwide will have to make
important political decisions about marijuana this year (California’s Proposition 19 is one example). Facebook’s decision, reportedly an attempt to be consistent with its ad
policies restricting smoking and/or marijuana-related content,
is instead primarily silencing an important, motivated voice in a politically significant debate.”
Facebook rules seem arbitrary as well. For example,
Facebook allows the game “Pot Farm” on its site. “Pot Farm” boasts almost half a million growers. Users simply install the
free game as an app, and begin resource management activity similar to Farmville. The game revolves around an illegal “pot
farm” where users must try to grow marijuana, and make earn
coins and “pot bucks” to spend on virtual items that can benefit a user’s farm, all while avoiding a raid by Ranger Dick.
Meanwhile, noted real-life cultivator Ed Rosenthal hit the
or tobacco in ad images on Facebook. “Just Say Now” and other
same advertising barrier this Spring when he tried to promote
Facebook using different images,” she said.
author of such books as the Marijuana Grower’s Handbook and
pro-legalization organizations can continue to advertise on Just Say Now responded by slapping at ‘censored’ bar over
the offending portion of the ad, and asking its followers to
spread the censored image far and wide among cannabis’ huge community on the site. For example, almost 200,000 people “like” the Prop 19 campaign to tax, and regulate cannabis in

he use of the cannabis plant has been controversial for centuries. On the one hand, it’s medical properties have been known for thousands of years, yet on the other hand it’s been condemned as the devil’s weed. Today, modern science has the ability to end this ageold controversy, while at the same time explaining the reason for it having ever existed (see concluding paragraph). In 1988 the existence of the previously unknown THC receptor was demonstrated. This finding strongly suggested that humans make their own marijuana-like compounds that bind to this receptor, now known as the CB1 receptor. A few years later, Dr. Rafael Mechoulam identified the first such compound and named it anandamide (Sanskrit for the blissful amide). Subsequently, thousands of peer-reviewed scientific articles have demonstrated the widespread homeostatic (biochemical balance) involvement of cannabinoids in all body systems (cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, excretory, muscular, nervous, skeletal, skin, and reproductive) as well as regulating such basic biological parameters as appetite, body temperature, pain, fear, paranoia, aggression, sleep, and joy. The basic nature of endocannabinoid activity with respect to health is positive as is best seen by its anti-aging, and anticancer properties. If the CB1 receptor is genetically eliminated in mice, they die prematurely and their skin ages prematurely. In contrast, an intramural NIH study showed that animals fed high concentrations of THC lived longer and had fewer tumors. In view of the holistic nature by which medical marijuana impacts on the endocannabinoid system the wide spread health benefits that people are seeing, now that individual states have allowed medical use, make sense. Unlike conventional pharmaceutical that try to block a biochemical pathway involved in a particular illness, cannabinoids have a global impact that, through their homeostatic
regulation of many pathways, promotes health. Thus, instead of having many pills for a specific illneess (typically to counteract each others negative side affects), cannabis is one medicine for many illness. We are seeing the beginning of a revolution in healthcare, and the end to it’s dominance by big pharma. Because cannabis appears to be so safe, and has essentially no achievable lethal dose, people can safely experiment with different strains and doses to find what works for them. A pioneer in self experimentation and medication has been Rick Simpson. He appears to have cured himself and others of cancer and other terminal diseases. What is lacking is rigorous documentation that would be widely acceptable by anyone with enough cannabinoid activity to be open-minded. To solve the current gap of bonafide documentation of cause and effect, treatment and cure, the Phoenix Tears Foundation has been established. This group is working with legal, terminal patients to confirm and document the amazing curative properties of medical marijuana. People should wonder how is it possible that the United States federal government is willing to spend billions of dollars, year after year, to arrest and incarcerate millions of otherwise law abiding citizens, but has not spent a few million to confirm, or not, the cancer killing properties of cannabis. The answer is amazingly simple. Our endocannabinoid system controls open mindedness, fear and paranoia. Some people are cannabinoid deficient. These unhigh people (BLPs-backward looking people, as opposed to FLPs-foward looking people) appear to concentrate in government where they spread fear and ignorance. They have no choice. They are genetic holdovers from an earlier age when aggressive, linear paths contributed to human advancement. That time has passed, and we are now entering into a new era in man’s evolution, one of consciousness, cooperation and caring for our selves, each other, and our environment.

It is 9:00 at night. Matt Cook, Senior Director from Colorado’s Department of Revenue turns on his computer and begins the process of responding to the hundreds of emails that he received throughout the day. The task is daunting. Especially when you consider the day was full from meetings and phone calls—not only related to medical marijuana, but the other divisions he manages which include alcohol, gaming, and tobacco. The emails are from concerned or confused medical marijuana centers and edibles manufacturers, to patients wondering how the new laws impact them. Many times, it’s the same questions asked over and over again, and then there’s the patient advocates that like to hit the send button multiple times to drive home a point. But Cook takes it all in stride because he knows that by working together, we have a unique opportunity to get this right. “We can do a lot of good, not only for the citizens of Colorado, but for the entire United States,” says Cook. Cook knows from prior experience that with communication and education, he can prevent pandemonium. “There is so much bad information out there,” says Cook. Taking the time to respond should help relieve anxiety and pessimism by an industry that has endured over 70 years of suppression—dating back to the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, the Boggs Act of 1952, and the Narcotics Control Act of 1956. All of these acts have evolved and contributed to the fact that marijuana remains illegal at a federal level. Consequently, every person involved in the sale, distribution, and possession of marijuana lives in fear. Perhaps that is exactly why Cook was given this opportunity to lead Colorado, along with a nation, down a path that no one
has ever been before. He understands and is quite familiar with an industry in transition. Cook had gotten wind that the medical marijuana industry might be assigned to his division in December 2009. He has 30 years of experience in the regulatory process, and in a previous life, he even spent 2 years as a narcotics officer with the Drug Enforcement Agency working on drug cases. He is constantly reminded of that history by a certificate that hangs on his office wall. It seems ironic that a DEA trained professional would be regulating an industry that his former colleagues would be trying to control or arrest. It was last Christmas that he began preparing himself to swallow a bitter pill where his past would meet the present. Cook says he really hasn’t had the time to reflect on how his life has evolved. He prefers to focus on the job at hand and that his department must create a regulatory framework within a limited timeframe. House Bill 10-1284 (HB 10-1284) was passed into law by the Colorado general assembly in 2010. It is a momentous piece of legislation, not only for Colorado, but also for the United States. Cook says Colorado is validating the medical marijuana industry. HB 10-1284 will cause the licensing of medical marijuana facilities such dispensaries or centers, growers, and infused products manufacturers as legitimate businesses in Colorado. In turn, it ignited the medical marijuana industry to fully disclose every aspect of their business. Applications began to be measured in feet, and delivering the application to the Department of Revenue became synonymous with giving birth. It left many medical marijuana businesses feeling utterly exposed, and having to put their trust
into a system that was both foreign and unknown. In an industry that is consumed by distrust, the efforts made by Cook to speak at public forums and the countless emails he has returned have paid big dividends. The public perception is turning, and Cook is now being considered more of an ally than the enemy. The licensing process in many ways became the rites of passage for the medical marijuana industry and a possible historical milestone. Arnold van Gennep who was a folklorist from France, describes a rites of passage as having 3 distinct phases: separation, transition, and re-incorporation. During the past year and a half, the Colorado “Green Rush” was operating in a state of transition, wondering where the industry was headed. The last phase of re-incorporation is having a new identity and becoming licensed. Cook said it several times and it’s worth repeating… “Colorado is validating your business.” The day Neil Armstrong landed on the moon and said his famous words “That’s one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind” is a statement that could be applied the day the medical marijuana centers dropped off their applications. While not having the same gravity as landing on the moon, legislative events such as this will become historical icons only when people begin to see the outcome over time. When Martin Luther King gave his famous “I have A Dream” speech in August of 1963, it set into motion the changes needed to advance civil rights. One year later, President Johnson passed
the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The speech became a historical marker when people saw the outcome. That is the reason why Cook is confident that the regulatory process will work when the citizens of Colorado can see positive outcome along with the medical marijuana industry. It is apparent that other states are watching Cook and the Colorado medical marijuana industry with intense focus. Most recently, the United States Congress came calling as Washington D.C. becoming the 15th state to legalize medical marijuana. Washington D.C. is unique in that it requires Congress to endorse any laws related to medical marijuana. “I have a meeting with representatives from South Dakota after our meeting today,” says Cook, who has received phone calls from other states seeking his advice on regulating medical marijuana. They have questions about what they should be considering, as many states have ballots this November giving voters a say on how they want medical marijuana to be handled. Cook likes to downplay his role in the medical marijuana movement by staying in the “here and now.” He only has enough time to reflect on the short term. Where was the department and industry one month ago? What needs to happen today and next week? He views creating a regulatory framework similar to managing “widgets.” In order to reach a particular outcome, numerous steps must be achieved to create an industry that can be regulated, safe, and obtain public confidence. Cook has consistently reached out to the medical marijuana industry through public forums such as the Medical Marijuana
(continued on page 58)
Business Alliance (MMBA) and Kush Magazine’s sponsored forum. It was in April of 2010 when Matt Cook was introduced at the MMBA. When Cook walked in with colleague Dan Hartman, all eyes were on the two of them. The room was filled with over 500 medical marijuana advocates anxiously waiting. If there was ever a time to be nervous, it would have been then. “I had no idea how they would receive us,” says Cook, and “I didn’t want to be viewed as a big bad negative sitting in a little ivory tower trying to direct things.” The industry at this point in time was recovering from the “auditors with guns” comment that was announced by Senator Romer at a previous MMBA forum. Senator Romer reminded the medical marijuana industry that with HB 10-1284 every dispensary would be assigned an auditor with a gun. That comment only reaffirmed to the medical marijuana industry that government could not be trusted, and to never let your guard down. Cook began his presentation by acknowledging the fact that HB 10-1284 is not a perfect piece of legislation and that it needs a lot of work. Cook then recognized that it will take a partnership for HB 10-1284 to move forward and that he is humble to create those
partnerships. He then committed that his department would offer fair, honest and faithful communication, and that he would create work groups that fairly represent the industry to help with the rule making process. If Cook was looking to disarm and establish trust with the medical marijuana industry, he accomplished his objective within the first 5 minutes. The atmosphere in the room had gone from anxiety to relief. In his final commitment and most pivotal moment, Cook promised to work with everyone during the rulemaking process. If there were any inequities that could not be resolved, Cook promised: “I will march with you side by side, hand in hand to the legislators in January.” An entire room filled by medical marijuana dispensary owners, patients and lawyers gave Cook a standing ovation. Cheryl Brown, founder of the MMBA, remembers that moment well. “ I thought to myself that finally someone is listening to the medical marijuana industry. When I saw everyone stand up to applaud Mr. Cook, I realized that history was being made in Colorado and finally we became a respected industry. I still get chills thinking about it.”

The “green scene” was alive and well at this year’s Mile High Music Fest. Tens of thousands of music fans — and cannabis lovers — from all over Colorado and even as far as Texas, Massachusetts and Florida took over Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City Aug. 14 and 15 for the annual Mile High Music Fest. The two-day event celebrated its third year with a fantastic showcase of music, food, and entertainment. Featuring legendary mainstream music moguls Jack Johnson and Dave Matthews Band as the festival’s headliners, dozens of popular and up-and-coming musicians also played the event, including NAS and Damien “Jr. Gong” Marley, Cypress Hill, Rusted Root, Phoenix, Keane, Bassnectar, Z-Trip, The Epilogues, The Samples and My Morning Jacket, as well as old-timers Jimmy Cliff and the Steve Miller Band. The variety of music drew diverse crowds, with people of all ages from all walks of life wandering around, soaking up the sun and enjoying the variety of foods and music offered. Although the music throughout both days was easy on the ears, one of the highlights was Cypress Hill’s mid-set sketch comedy-style interlude with Sen Dog pulling on a 6-foot bong and B-Real puffing a cartoonishly oversized blunt, making reference to Colorado’s lax marijuana laws. While not everyone was as in-your-face as Cypress Hill, several artists commented on Colorado’s pot-friendly atmosphere, noting the overwhelming kind bud stenches and hazy clouds of marijuana smoke looming over the crowds. While warming up the spectators before NAS and Damien “Jr. Gong” Marley’s set, their DJ urged the audience to make some noise if they smoke weed, which was followed by predictably loud hollers and cheers from the sea of
fans. He then said, “The Forecast in NAS and Jr. Gong’s dressing room is very cloudy,” alluding to the fact that the artists were likely imbibing on some of Colorado’s finest pot. In an interview with Kush Magazine after their set, Rusted Root’s bass guitarist Patrick Norman noted the green scene at the festival. “Not from the haze, but from the smell of the green around here, it’s very nice,” he said, with a slight grin on his face. “It’s a very happy place, and I’m very happy to be here, if you know what I’m sayin.” Chris Heckman, lead vocalist and guitarist of The Epilogues—a local Denver band that performed Sunday after winning the 2010 Westword Music Showcase a couple of weeks prior—also alluded to the copious amounts of pot-smoke in the air and the laid-back atmosphere surrounding the festival. “We have one word and it’s Skywalker… and we were all Jedis yesterday,” he said with a somewhat mischievous smile. Officers from multiple police departments were on hand, but more for the purposes of crowd control and didn’t seem to be specifically looking for cannabis-smokers. Several people were apprehended and taken off site after getting busted for underage drinking. In between musical acts, festival-goers enjoyed an assortment of munchies, including traditional festival goodies such as pizza, burgers, hot dogs, bratwursts and funnel cakes. This year several gourmet options were also available like Thai BBQ, Vietnamese noodles, world vegetarian cuisine and Berrie Kabobs—a deliciously sweet treat consisting of white and milk-chocolate covered strawberries and bananas served on a stick.
Feedback from attendees was overall positive and while Dave Matthews Band’s return to the festival—they also headlined the first year in 2008—likely sold the majority of tickets, people seemed to enjoy all the acts and maybe even discovered some new talent. Taylor Grabbis of Southborough, Mass. said he came to visit his brother Dan, who lives in Summit County, but was motivated to schedule his visit during the weekend of Mile High Music Fest so they could attend the event. “The second day set was better… I’m a big Dave fan and I’m a big fan of Bassnectar… but Jack Johnson put on a good show,” Grabbis said of what he considered to be the highlights of the festival. “I’m most excited to see Bassnectar and probably Dave Matthews,” said Denver resident Sean Byrne on his way into the event Sunday afternoon. “But I love the atmosphere with all the people just diggin’ on the music.”
In response to the food truck phenomenon that has hit Denver and other major cities throughout the country, two food trucks set up shop—one from popular local eatery Steuben’s and a brand new G.E.T Tacos truck, which featured organic and moderatelypriced tacos. The taco truck’s co-owner Julie Conner said it was the first event for them and she felt confident that it went well. “It’s been really good… it’s good for our first launch because, honestly, yesterday was our very first event. We hadn’t even cooked in it until yesterday,” she said.
The campaign to “reduce your carbon footprint” speaks as the voice of the new green and its presence is growing. Environmental awareness is no longer a fad or something that hippies practice. We are all in this together and that message has been spreading like really good wildfire. We all like to think we do our part to preserve our natural resources and every little bit helps. Maybe you have an eco-friendly water bottle that you fill with water instead of buying the cases of individual bottles or perhaps you compost your food scraps. These are all excellent choices in the fight against climate change and waste reduction. But can we do more? The answer is always a resounding yes. We can do more and by reducing our carbon footprint by examining our driving habits is a great start toward the greater good. If you’re thinking of buying a car, the obvious economical and environmental choice is to choose a hybrid. Hybrids have come a long way since the technology made its way onto the scene. It wasn’t so long ago that buying a hybrid meant that you were giving up power and settling on a design that is reminiscent of a roller coaster car or space-age looking vehicle. Now you can buy a hybrid SUV that looks just like any other gas-guzzling SUV. The Honda Civic Hybrid looks remarkably like a Honda Civic. Automobile manufacturers finally figured out that if the car looks and drives the same, the purchaser has much less trouble deciding to “go green.” Hybrids use less fuel, which means fewer emissions. They save you money and save the planet, one fuel cell at a time. There really isn’t a good reason not to consider a hybrid. And as newer technologies emerge, like hydrogen and electric, the choices are expanding every year. Driving an eco-friendly car doesn’t have to be the only transportation option in reducing one’s carbon footprint on the planet. It is not only environmentally responsible but it is physically prudent to consider getting from point A to point B the old-fashioned 74
way---walk. It may not make a ton of sense to walk to work if you live more than a couple miles away, but what about lunch breaks? Do you jump in the car and run down the street to the sandwich shop? If you’re trading a 15-minute walk for a 5-minute drive, think about leaving the keys behind and giving your body a chance to stretch out and your mind a chance to unload. The more times a day you can make this decision, the more money you save on gas, the more fit you feel and the less emissions you contribute. If you do drive short distances for errands, do your best to carpool with others who have the same idea. One car on the road is always less than four. Bicycles are also an excellent way to get around quickly. Public transportation is inexpensive, environmentally responsible, and saves the day when it comes to traffic and stress. By taking the bus, train, subway, et al. you give yourself more time to do the things you want to do and less time polluting. A bus ride affords you time to catch up on work, read a book for once (instead of just websites) and even get through the emails that have been sitting in your inbox for a week. Most city buses have the least emissions and run on alternative energies. No matter how you decide to get to your destination, remember that jumping in the car is not always the best option. No one is blind to the fact that we as a nation are dependent on our automobiles. They give us a sense of personal freedom and can take us to the corners of the nation and back. But before you drive a few blocks, at least consider an alternative. If you do most of your traveling around a specific area, consider a scooter or moped. My new Vespa costs less than some value meals to fill up! The point is, getting around doesn’t have to always mean the car and you don’t have to be a health freak to justify walking a few blocks or taking a bike ride. It’s high time we as a nation get used to alternatives and with obesity at an all time high, there’s really no reason not to.
Anxiety is normal to a degree but for those who suffer from GAD often develop symptoms of panic or other physical symptoms. Panic attacks are often a part of the disorder and are no fun for those who suffer. A panic attack feels like a heart attack—the heart races, body temperature rises and often profuse sweating occurs. Many victims have experienced dizziness, numbness or tingling in the extremities and an impending sense of doom. The good news about panic attacks is that they are not harmful in that they do not cause any real physical damage but they can be mentally and emotionally overwhelming. The danger of this particular anxiety issue is that other disorders may come into play. Depression and substance abuse often accompany GAD and can make the rehabilitation process all that more difficult. Rehabilitation or treatment for GAD is subjective. Western medicine offers a variety of medications that can work for severe cases. Everything from Prozac to Zoloft to Xanex is often prescribed to patients by physicians. Alternative therapies are often recommended alongside medication and some patients prefer to skip the drugs altogether to avoid dependency and choose to treat the problem instead of the symptoms. 80
Cognitive therapy is the most widely used therapy for anxiety disorders. Cognitive behavioral therapy addresses negative patterns and distortions in the way we look at the world and ourselves. As the name suggests, this involves two main components:
..it’s not the situation you’re in that determines how you feel, but your perception of the situation...
EVERYONE GETS STRESSED AND EVERYONE GETS ANXIOUS, BUT for many people, anxiety is a debilitating condition and can become s seriously debilitating condition. General Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a condition that affects nearly 7 million people who often think that they are simply natural worriers or are possibly just dealing with a particularly stressful time in their lives. The National institute for Mental Health describes people with GAD as people who “go through the day filled with exaggerated worry and tension, even though there is little or nothing to provoke it. They anticipate disaster and are overly concerned about health issues, money, family problems, or difficulties at work. Sometimes just the thought of getting through the day produces anxiety.”
Cognitive therapy examines how negative thoughts, or cognitions, contribute to anxiety.
Behavior therapy examines how you behave and react in situations that trigger anxiety. “The basic premise of cognitive behavioral therapy is that our thoughts–not external events–affect the way we feel. In other words, it’s not the situation you’re in that determines how you feel, but your perception of the situation. For example, imagine that you’ve just been invited to a big party. Consider three different ways of thinking about the invitation, and how those thoughts would affect your emotions.” Other methods of combating GAD are mediation, which is a quieting of the mind. This may be difficult to do for some people who have racing thoughts or high levels of anxiety, but meditation can b e learned and practiced by anyone. Breathing techniques and exercises help to calm the body and the mind and is an excellent way to maintain balance. Most importantly, it’s imperative to know that GAD doesn’t have to be permanent and with proper treatment, diet and exercise, you can get your life back and keep it yours.

It’s pretty hard to believe that the summer has already passed us by. Now we can look forward to football and the season of snow that lies ahead for us here in Colorado. Whatever the season may be, one thing that stays consistent is the steady stream of talented musicians makeing their way to Colorado. The next month is no exception. So although you may need to start bundling up a bit more to go out, get to some of these shows for a healthy dose of aural delight.

9.24.10 @ Fillmore Auditorium (Denver) 9.25.10 @ Mesa Theater & Club (Grand Junction)
What do you know about dubstep?? On the grimy, dirtier side of the electro spectrum, dubstep and it’s wobbly, distorted bass date back to the underground club scene of London somewhere around or after 2000. Going relatively mainstream in the states over the last year or so, this style of electronic production doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon. Rusko, who is from the UK himself, seems to be leading the charge in the push for worldwide dubstep domination. His May released full length album, O.M.G.!, has put him on virtually everyone’s radar, and he is one of the most in demand remixers around. Beyond his distinct production style, his DJ sets are spectacular. Get down to Bluebird on this Tuesday night for a show that will give you dubstep dreams for days. www.ruskoonfire.com
Matt & Kim 9.24.10 @ Ogden Theatre Matt & Kim come from Brooklyn just as advertised, a guy named Matt and a girl named Kim who make upbeat pop-punk tunes that make us want to dance and smile with everyone in sight. Kim plays drums, Matt plays keys, and both sing. Songs like “Daylight”, “Yea Yeah”, and “Good Old Fashioned Nightmare” have gained them widespread recognition in the indie community since forming in 2006. And while they seem destined to expand and grow into a bigger mainstream success in the future, for now their simplicity seems to be one of the more charming aspects of the pair. This Friday night show at Ogden Theatre should be the perfect way to kick off a weekend of decreased responsibility that lies ahead. www.mattandkimmusic.com
Tech N9ne has been around the block... a few times. His career has spanned close to two decades and the man has released a dozen albums since 1999. He released an album in 2010 and is set for another in 2011. Beyond his consistent output of independent rap, Tech N9ne always seems to be on the road and co-owns the label Strange Music. A busy man, to say the least. His live shows are always full of energy and enthusiasm. We suggest heading out to one of these shows to get your fall filling of live rap tunes. www. therealtechn9ne.com
Jimmy Eat World, We Were Promised Jetpacks 10.3.10 @ Ogden Theatre Jimmy Eat World formed in 1993, but didn’t decide to go with Jim Adkins over Tom Linton as the lead vocalist until the late 90’s. It was a good decision. The early 2000s saw them break into the mainstream with the albums Bleed American and Futures, and they haven’t looked back. Their most recent release puts them back on the road with Scotland’s We Were Promised Jetpacks, a really fun group that has a stellar live show. Should be a solid Sunday night of music for those of us that like to get a little emo on some alt pop rock. www.jimmyeatworld.com

Deadmau5 (Live) 10.6.10, 10.7.10 @ Fillmore Auditorium Deadmau5 (Dead Mouse) is one of the most in demand DJ’s in the world right now, and this October, Denver has the pleasure of hosting him for two nights at the Fillmore. Since 2005 he’s released 10 albums full of progressive house music with a touch of trance. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, check out the tracks “Strobe”, “Some Chords”, or “More Ghosts and Stuff ” to get a feel of what to expect from one of his DJ set. Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to bust out, this is a show you’ll need all of your energy for. www.deadmau5.com
Wiz Khalifa 10.9.10 @ Black Sheep (Colorado Springs) The Waken Baken Tour rolls in to Colorado Springs via Black Sheep for a fresh dose of hip hop on this Saturday night. At the ripe age of 22, Cameron Thomaz has already released 2 full albums and 8 mixtapes, the latest titled Kush and Orange Juice.... which makes me smile. A native of Pittsburgh, Khalifa is one of the many young rappers building a career by pumping out mixtapes several times a year. He is legitimately talented and likely has a bright future in front of him. www.wizkhalifa.org
Ra Ra Riot, We Barbarians 10.11.10 @ Bluebird Theater Ra Ra Riot is a delightful indie pop rock outfit from Syracuse that you should know about. They released their second full length album, The Orchard, in August and are on the road in support of that. If you’re unfamiliar, a really great track worth checking out is “Can You Tell”. Joining Ra Ra Riot on this tour is We Barbarians, a Long Beach, CA band that most easily fits into the ‘ambient ’ genre of music. Both are really great live sets, and worth whatever the Bluebird is charging. What better way is there to end a manic Monday than with quality live music?? www.rarariot.com, www.webarbarians.com
Menomena 10.14.10 @ Bluebird Theater Menomema is radical. Hard to think of a better word to describe this funky psychedelic band out of Portland. I came across them while randomly wandering the record store in Seattle years ago. I saw the name, loved the album cover, took one listen, and fell in love. They released their third LP, Mines, on July 27th and are touring all over the US in support of that album. This is a show that we’re really excited about and can’t stress how much you should go check them out with stellar sound system at the Bluebird. Their live set can become a circus of sorts, with the three band members swapping instruments like madmen... and it totally works towards their advantage and the crowd’s enjoyment. Go! www.menomena.com

I was familiar with Devin from his verse from the Dr. Dre Chronic album, “I just wanna Fuk U” song and loved his performance. But I didn’t grow to fanatic status until after touring with Eminem and D12 on The Anger management tours. My smoke patnas for the tour were DJ Green Lantern and Bizzare from D12. On tour there’s much down time. The term hurry up to wait is widely used within the industry to describe how the powers that be rush you around to get you where you need to be on time. The only problem is, most artist are late for everything so management usually tacks on at least 2 hours to the time they tell you that you need to be there. From the promoter and management’s perspective, it

appear tough on crime and corner certain industries. But in the end, all of the stories about marijuana making black men rape
white women and the “gateway drug”
rhetoric boil down to one underlying principle: the perception of harm. Marijuana
became illegal and has remained that way because the general public simply believes it is just too dangerous to allow its use.
Many reformers and activists recognize
this root and have argued for years that marijuana is relatively safe compared to other widely used – and legal – drugs like alcohol and
tobacco. But far too often marijuana reform supporters stray toward arguments that do not take this perception of harm head-on. For
enforcing marijuana laws is a poor use of
MARIJUANA PROHIBITION IS NOT JUST ABOUT WEED. IT IS A WEED. IT’S A WEED THAT SPROUTED MORE THAN 75 YEARS AGO AND SPREAD STATE TO STATE, ENVELOPING THE ENTIRE NATION AS POISON IVY WOULD A GARDEN. In the past 30 years, some branches of the weed have been trimmed down or lopped off in the form of positive legislation or policy changes. For example, a handful of state legislatures
decriminalized marijuana in the 1970s, and in the past decade or so we have seen
a number of states adopt laws permitting the use of medical marijuana. This is
not to mention the growing number of cities that have passed a wide variety of local measures.
But despite such constant pruning efforts of legislators and activists, the
prohibition weed remains alive and, thus, able to grow. Consider for example
that annual U.S. marijuana arrests reached an all-time high once again in 2006,
and federal legislation that would protect medical marijuana patients from DEA
raids and prosecution has continually failed, gaining just a little ground each year despite widespread public support. In fact, anti-prohibition forces are actually losing ground in some parts of the country. In Ohio – a decriminalization state --
the Cincinnati City Council recently “recriminalized” possession of small amounts of marijuana, and a similarly needless “recrim” effort is now underway in Nebraska.
If we wish to stem such growth of the prohibition weed, we must treat it like
any other weed. We must kill it. And, like killing any weed, this means we must attack it at its root.
First, we must identify that root. Sure, racism against Hispanics and
blacks played a large role in the establishment and growth of prohibition. So did political and economic opportunism by people in power trying to
law enforcement resources or that using marijuana is a civil liberty. These are
obviously valid arguments, but how do
they change the minds of those who think
marijuana is so dangerous it must remain prohibited? After all, if an individual currently
thinks marijuana should be completely illegal, then by nature they do not agree
it is a waste of resources to enforce these laws, and they certainly will not agree that marijuana use is an essential freedom.
Thus, if we want these people to change
their positions – or at least become less hostile to reform – we must first educate them that
marijuana is actually not so harmful. Once they acknowledge this fact, they will be far
more likely to agree with us that enforcement is a waste of resources, that people’s rights are being needlessly trampled, and so on.
Just like with a weed, if we fail to attack
marijuana prohibition at its root, it will never die. We can trim it up and make it appear
less unsightly by changing laws and policies
here and there. But in the end, it will remain
alive and pervasive until we yank it out of the ground, roots and all, and prevent it from ever rearing its ugly head again.

FRISCO, COLORADO is a beautiful and
quaint mountain town in the heart of Summit County, about 70 minutes up I-70 from Denver. It has the perfect little town charm, but also possesses a rugged spirit as one can camp, hike, bike, boat, fish and more. As an old town, it of course has its historical aspect, but it also is experiencing a youth revival with a refreshed nightlife in bars and restaurants.
EAT Abbey’s Coffee Shop is the perfect place to stop to take a break from shopping, hiking or biking. It offers delicious coffee drinks and ice creams to enjoy with a beautiful view of the mountains. For lunch or breakfast, Butterhorn Bakery and Café is the best option in town. They offer delicious sandwiches, wraps and pastries. For dinner, Backcountry Brewery offers pub style cuisine and a fun evening out.
STAY Frisco Lodge Bed and Breakfast is a charming vintage Inn located on Main Street with access to not only prime retail and restaurants, but also beautiful hiking trails and the Frisco Bay Marina. The lodge offers all modern comforts, but maintains a small lodge antique feel as they only have eight rooms. For those interested in a more rugged outdoor vacation, camping and RV parking are both available. Tiger Run RV Resort is the best place for RVs to stay as they provide electrical hookup and also a clubhouse, hot tub, swimming pool, TV lounge, showers, and sports courts, all with a view of the mountains and the Swan and Blue Rivers. There are also beautiful spots for tent and car campers, all with
varying degrees of ruggedness, but all with the beautiful mountains in view. Campsites in Frisco are popular and the best way to reserve and view accommodations is to go to recreation.gov.
DO The Frisco Bay Marina is one of the most picturesque and fun locations in all of Frisco. They offer canoe and kayak rentals, powerboat rentals, paddleboat rentals, sailboat rentals, lessons and tours, and the Lake Dillon Water Taxi service. Rentals are available seven days a week and nothing could be more enjoyable than to grab a picnic lunch at the marina bar and grill and head out by boat to have lunch on one of the islands, or even on the water. If you are more the type to go along for the ride rather than captain, sailboat tours are available, and the Water Taxi Service is a fun way to explore both the Frisco Bay Marina and the Dillon Reservoir. Copper Mountain isn’t just a great place to ski, it is also a happening summer spot. Copper has a climbing wall, bumper boats, gocarts, paddle boats, mini-golf, free lift rides and free concerts and outdoor movies on Fridays. They also have off-road scooter rentals and downhill mountain biking, for which they will give you a lift to the top and you get to ride down the mountain by bike or scooter. For those who enjoy hiking, Frisco maintains 12 miles of paved pathways within town limits and 55 miles in Summit County. For those interested in more rugged trails, climbing Mt. Royal, Mt. Victoria or Peak 1 will be a breathtaking and rewarding experience. For mountain bikers, Peaks Trail from Frisco to Breckenridge is one of the most enjoyable rides in the area.

o you’ve finally made the decision to start growing your own. Whether you’ve just procured the space to do it or you’re just tired of seeing your hard earned money go up in smoke, growing your own stash of weed can be rewarding, educational, and a hell of a lot cheaper than buying at the dispensary or from the guy down the street. There are books galore on how to get it done, plenty of forums on the internet to learn from, but unless you order everything you need off the internet product-wise you’ll eventually have to walk into an indoor garden/hydroponics store. If you live in a medical state and have a license/prescription you may be tempted to walk into your local grow store and loudly proclaim that you wish to start growing your own medical marijuana and need some expert advice and equipment. After all you’re simply complying with the state laws and doing your thing, right? If you take this approach chances are you’ll find the person behind the counter strangely reticent on the subject or worse yet you might even be asked to leave. So what gives? Here you are simply trying to give some business to a local store and they act like you just walked in with a horribly contagious disease and started coughing on them. Well the answer is a political one. You see, the guy behind the counter may lose his/her job by discussing this sticky subject with you. With good reason, as the owner of the store could lose his/ her business or quite possibly their personal freedom by openly discussing Marijuana with you or anyone else for that matter. And the root of the problem goes back to the Federal government’s stance on Cannabis.
How so? For a hydro store to be able to offer a large selection of quality products they have to purchase these products from large national companies. These companies are forced to continually defend themselves in federal court that they are not knowingly promoting or condoning any illegal activity. Consequently, if any of the retail locations that they sell to are openly talking and giving advice to someone who is growing anything illegal at the federal level, they can be forced to pull their product line from said retailer or face federal prosecution themselves. If a store loses enough of their product lines, their selection dwindles down to smaller distributors with no stake in the matter and eventually loses out to a store down the street with the wider selection. The second problem is the uncertain position from the federal government regarding prosecution. While United State Attorney General Eric Holder’s statement in 2009 not to prosecute those following state laws regarding medical marijuana is welcome and long overdue, it is not actually law, and can be reversed at a moment’s notice by Eric Holder or whoever holds the office next. The feds could decide to try to pursue charges against hydroponic stores rather than the thousands of dispensaries. The age of paranoia is far from over. So when you go rolling into your local indoor garden store and belly up to the counter and start talking about weed the way it ought to be, what the guy behind the counter sees is a possible mystery shopper from their supplier or an over-zealous DEA agent setting up his case for later or just some jack-ass that doesn’t know the better part of discretion. While the first two cases are obviously the worse of the three, the jack-ass can still cost you your job. Not to mention being a jack-ass is rarely a good way to start a relationship with someone that you hope will help you grow your favorite form of produce. Luckily, the solution is an easy one, just talk tomatoes. Tomatoes are so close genetically to the cannabis plant growing techniques are practically identical. The person behind the counter will still know what you’re talking about (trust me they will) and they will be a lot more appreciative for the consideration. Store owners and workers don’t like asking people to leave or the awkward speech that they cannot help you do anything illegal. They don’t care what you are doing just don’t incriminate them in a conspiracy to break federal law to do it. It’s a semantic game that we’ve all become accustomed to when we go to the local head shop and dare not utter the word that must not be uttered…Bong. No we politely ask to see the “water pipe” that will only be used to smoke legally produced and procured tobacco products. If you didn’t start smoking until after 1986 you might not even know that it used to be different. Here are just a few words to use that will make your local hydro store worker much more comfortable and cooperative. Instead of “buds” the term “fruit” or again “tomatoes” can be used. Talk about plants in the “fruiting” or “flowering” stage instead of budding. The word “strains” can be replaced with “different types of tomatoes” they too have shorter types and taller types. Talking about resin production can be a bit trickier but you can refer to crystals or just the sticky substance that seems to grow on your leaves and flowers of the vague plant that you are growing. I have rarely seen a store owner or employee that is too inquisitive in the type of plant you are growing unless you specifically say you are growing orchids, or lettuce or something else legal and diverse. So please, take it easy on the frayed nerves of your local indoor garden/hydroponics provider and make it easy on them and they should try to make it easy for you.

It may sound obvious, but having a good group of friends along can be more important than actually going to see the game. Many people actually opt to spend the whole day in the parking lot and never even get to see the teams play. Tail gating is a social event, so be social. Don’t just mingle with the people you came with. Have an extra bratwurst? Go offer it to the people partying next to you. Who knows you might just get a sampling of something they brought. Accessories aren’t necessary to throw a great tailgate party, but there are a few gadgets that can completely enhance the tailgate experience. A barbeque grill can be terrific. An often overlooked aspect of the tailgate is music. Often people just roll down their windows and let their car’s radio play music for everyone to hear. If you are partying for a while you need to make sure you don’t run the battery down. When planning for for a tailgate party, it’s important that you take the weather into account. If you are attending a winter game at Mile High Stadium, maybe you might want to rethink the cold pasta salad. Up in the Bay area whether you are a 49er or Raiders fan, make sure you dress for the fog that rolls in and bring food and drink for the weather. At the same time, some warm drinks during a Chargers game in sunny California might not be a great idea either. If it’s a cold day, it might be a good idea to bring warm clothes for others, nothing is better than getting a friend who supports the wrong team to don your colors when they start complaining about the weather.

It can be a great way to sample something new especially if you’re at an away game. If you don’t drink, you might want to bring a beer or two anyways. Also on this page is a recipe for a killer beer bratwurst that will blow away any others in the parking lot.

Over the years there have been a slew of films that have tried to capture the drama and excitement of a great football game. Some have been not only good sports flicks, but also great films. Others star Keanu Reeves . Below is a list of some of the best movies that have been made about football.
This film has the unique distinction of being a made for TV movie that became so popular, it was later released in theaters. Brian’s Song is based on the true story of two Chicago Bears players: Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers. Like many of the critically acclaimed football films, Brian’s Song features a undertone of racial tensions. Piccolo and Sayers eventually over come this and other problems becoming great friends through the process. Unfortunately at a certain point Brian Piccolo becomes terminally ill and Sayers has must deal with the loss of his great friend. This movie stands as an incredibly touching story of a great friendship and is a much watch for people who don’t even really care for football. 114
Any Given Sunday is Oliver Stone’s take on the modern world of football. In this movie football is a kill or be killed all consuming world. The all star cast are put through the ringer as they do what they can to succeed in one of the world’s most competitive industries. The movie shows this, not only from the player’s perspective, but also from behind the scenes. Cameron Diaz, Al Pacino, Dennis Quaid and Jaime Foxx all put in stellar performances of characters that are caught up in the game. Any Given Sunday is a football movie for the fan with ADD. The plot is broken up constantly with gratuitous bone crunching action. On the field, the movie is fast and brutal, though sometimes a lot can be lost through the close up shots and quick editing. One of the movies brightest moments takes place in a locker room before a big game. Al Pacino delivers what will go down as one of the best inspirational speeches in movie history.
People remember this movie for a lot of things. The cute kid who says funny things, the romance story between Tom Cruise and Renée Zelweger or most likely; the catch phrase ‘Show me the money’. The movie takes a turn half way through and it’s easy to forget that this film also features some really great football scenes. The early parts of the film capture the fast paced lifestyle of a sports agent who becomes uncomfortable with the corporate approach to the industry. When he is fired by his agency for questioning the ethics of their practice, his entire future rests in the hands of an Arizona Cardinal played by a Pre-Snow Dogs Cuba Gooding Jr.
ESPN’s Bill Simmons once said that the original Longest Yard (Yes, the recent Adam Sandler flick is a remake) was the best football movie ever made. Burt Reynolds plays a former football player who is sentenced to prison after a fight with his girlfriend that ends in the destruction of her car. The prison’s warden manages a semipro football team that is made up of the prison’s guards. Reynolds eventually assembles a team of inmates to take on the warden’s team in an exhibition game at the prison. For the football scenes, the actors were told to go out and play football. There were a few choreographed scenes that were shot to tie in with the rest of the script, but the bulk of them are just men playing a game of football. The result here is one of the most accurate portrayals of the sport to make it to the big screen.
Rudy is an iconic and true story of Daniel ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger. For most of his life, Rudy had a dream of playing football for The University of Notre Dame. Rudy overcomes a multitude of challenges in pursuit of his dream. He struggled with a learning disability, but through sheer will and hard work he overcame his dyslexia and was accepted into the prestigious university. In the face of all odds he finally made his way into the school’s team, only to be benched. In the movie’s climax Rudy’s dream is realized as he takes to the field and manages to sack the opposing quarterback. Rudy is one of the greatest examples of The American Dream, he worked his way through all of life’s obstacles and achieved his dream of playing for Notre Dame. If you ever feel like you could use a little pick me up, this might be the right film for you.
Later in the film the movie’s main character discovers himself and his love for Zelweger as he overcomes his biggest problems. The story culminates in a sappy romance, but think of it this way. This could be a great way to get your romantic comedy loving significant other to sit down and watch a football movie with you.
