s we enter the heat of the summer months, the news about marijuana in California continues to heat up. The Tax Cannabis Initiative which will be on the California ballot in November is described in depth in the article on page 68. Voters will have the option to create new tax dollars from a booming industry for our financially depressed state. Meanwhile, cities, including San Diego, are passing ordinances attempting to control the proliferation of medical marijuana dispensaries cropping up city wide in California. On page 40 you can read about San Diego’s attempt to put a lid on the growth of marijuana as a business and how it is affecting the industry as a whole. Then just when you think you are coming out of the heat, the DEA rolls into town, again, and strong-arms several of the local San Diego medical marijuana businesses. Even though President Obama has declared a “hands off ” rule for businesses acting under their states medical marijuana initiatives and laws, the feds are still asserting a battle to enforce the archaic and erroneous schedule one classification of marijuana. Does anyone truly believe there is no medical benefit to the use of marijuana? Just turn to Joey’s story, a true story of hope on page 56. As unconventional as it sounds, medical marijuana saved an autistic boy from death. Conventional drugs were causing him to starve himself and medical marijuana in edible and ingestible forms literally saved his life.

Oakland will be the first city to condone the large scale growing of marijuana with the blessing of the city.

And just as we are going to press, one of the biggest news stories from the city of Oakland is hot, hot, hot. Oakland’s City Council passed a resolution July 20th, which could make it the first city in the state to give official permission to the industrial marijuana production. Technically this resolution commercializes the growth of marijuana which previously has been grown in private gardens and warehouses. According to Dale Gieringer from California NORML, “This is a monumental step forward.” Oakland will be the first city to condone the large scale growing of marijuana with the blessing of the city. Berkeley has also asked its voters to approve a similar industrial grow operation. The Oakland grow is anticipated to produce over 70,000 pounds per year along with increased jobs and taxes for the city. What a difference a day makes! So summer is not the only thing that is hot in California. Medical marijuana or marijuana in general will continue to be a hot topic as long as the false misconceptions that have prevailed in our country for decades continue to prevent the benefits of marijuana from being capitalized on by states, including California, who still qualify it as a non-profit, compassionate purpose medicine. But with each new story about marijuana, awareness and political initiatives arise that can allow our cities, state, and at some point our country to benefit both medically, socially and financially from marijuana. Kush Magazine and dailybuds.com will continue to inform its readers of all new developments in the cannabis movement. Stay informed. And remember, there is HOPE!

by J.T. GOLD 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 10 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.

It all started on what seemed to be just another normal sunny day in San Diego back in September 2009 when task forces comprised of officers and agents from the San Diego Police Department, San Diego County Sheriff ’s Department and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”) raided 14 dispensaries and arrested 31 people. The raids were orchestrated by District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis. The September 09 raids occurred, coincidently, after Dumanis received two swift but massive setbacks in her political war against medical marijuana in San Diego. The first was from the U.S. Supreme

As a side note, all of the state cases that have come to trial so far have been a political disaster for Dumanis and have resulted in dismissals or acquittals for all parties involved. Here is where it gets more confusing. On July 9, 2010, the DEA

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.

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.

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

In 2009 it was the City’s position that the definition of a Dispensary fit into one of the existing Use and/or Sub-use categories set forth in the San Diego Municipal Code (“SDMC”). At that time, the City did not regulate uses to such minutia as to require a business owner to specify every detail of the type of use

In order for a Medical Marijuana Collective (“Collective”) to open a storefront dispensary (“Dispensary”) a Collective must procure a Payment of Business Tax Certificate (“BTC”) from the San Diego City Treasurer. The City’s issuance of a BTC is predicated by a zoning review by the City’s Development Services Department (“DSD”). If the DSD does not approve the zoning usage for the Dispensary at the location listed on the BTC application, the BTC will be denied by the City Treasurer and the Dispensary may be shut down by the City if it follows certain procedures. Prior to July of 2009, the City issued BTC’s to Dispensaries that honestly stated the nature of their business on their BTC applications. (NOTE: Collectives should not misinform the City Treasurer of their 40 kush

contemplated when operating. For example, if a clothing manufacturer wanted to open a business in a zone designated as “Light Industrial” he would not be required to specify what type of products he was manufacturing such as belts, shoes, etc. Rather, he would list the type of business he was opening on the BTC application “Clothing manufacturer” and the City would determine which Use category for the proposed business was suitable and allow them to operate in the appropriate zone. The same concept applied to Collectives. If a Collective desired to open a Dispensary to facilitate the distribution of marijuana to its members, it need only notify the City that they intended to operate a “Organic Health Care Store”, “Holistic Wellness Center” or other similar description and the City would determine if the address listed on the BTC application was in an appropriate zone as set forth in the SDMC. A specific description of the goods and/or services to be provided by the business was not required in order for a BTC to be issued. Then, in October of 2009, one month prior to the MMTF recommending to the City Council that Dispensaries should be allowed to operate within any zone except Residential zones, the City changed its position by virtue of a memorandum written by DSD Director Kelly Broughton wherein he asserted his opinion that despite, the City’s earlier analysis, Dispensaries no longer fit into any Use or Sub-use category in the SDMC. Why the City changed its earlier position and upon who’s direction is unknown but will certainly be discovered and shared with the citizens of San Diego should the City continue with its attempt to create a de facto moratorium on Dispensaries based upon zoning regulations. Currently, the City Treasurer is no longer issuing BTCs to any applicant who states they desire to open a Dispensary or who references marijuana in any way. Furthermore the City is now in the process of in (continued on page 42)

specting every known Dispensary within the City regardless of where they are located, when they opened or whether or not they were previously issued a BTC. If a Dispensary refuses to allow an inspection, the City will procure an “Inspection Warrant” which can be enforced without the Dispensary’s permission. The purpose of these inspections are two-fold: First, to see if there are any building code violations that need to be corrected and second, to determine whether the business is operating as a Dispensary. Once the use is confirmed, the City will serve the Dispensary and its landlord with a Notice of Violation (“NOV”) in an attempt to order the dispensary to cease and desist operating for two reasons: First the city will claim the dispensary is a “Public Nuisance” because it is illegally selling a controlled substance. However, since Proposition 215, SB 420 (now codified as CA Health & Safety Code section 11362.5 et seq.) and recent case law provide that if a Collective is properly formed and operating as a nonprofit entity consisting of a “Closed Universe” of Qualified Patients and their Primary Caregivers then under certain circumstances the cultivation dispensation, transportation, possession and use of medical marijuana by the Collective and its members is legal under California state law. The second reason is based upon Mr. Broughton’s opinion that there is no zone within the City of San Diego suitable for a Dispensary to operate. In order to enforce a NOV the City must file a lawsuit against the Dispensary and/or its landlord. Such a lawsuit may seek criminal penalties, monetary fines and/or an Injunction known as a “Judicial Abatement Order” from the court forcing the Dispensary to cease and desist from operating. If such an Order is granted, the City may obtain an “Arrest Warrant” against those violating the Order. The City may also seize all property within the Dispensary and lock the doors. For the City to obtain a Judicial Abatement Order from the court, it must first procure a Judgment after a trial on the merits of the City’s case against the Dispensary and/or its landlord wherein the Trier of fact, typically a jury, is convinced that no suitable Use or Subuse category exists within the SDMC for the zone in which the Dispensary desires to operate. A case such as this often takes many months to go to trial. Therefore, it is likely that an ordinance setting forth the rules, regulations and locations within the City permitting Dispensaries will most likely have been enacted by the City Council prior to the conclusion of the trial and possible appeal of a Judicial Abatement lawsuit. However, once a Judicial Abatement action is filed by the City, the City has the option to immediately ask the court to grant the City a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”) and shortly thereafter a Preliminary Injunction ordering the defendant Dispensary to cease and desist pending the outcome of the Trial. If a TRO and subsequent Preliminary Injunction are granted the status quo allowing the Dispensary to remain open pending the outcome of the case will shift to the Dispensary being forced to remain closed pending the outcome of the case. 42 kush

In order to procure a TRO the City must convince a Judge that the City will suffer “irreparable harm” by allowing the defendant Dispensaries to remain open. This seems like an impossible burden in light of the following facts: •There is currently no ordinance or any provision within the SDMC expressly prohibiting Dispensaries within the City of San Diego; •The City’s MMJ Task Force has recommended allowing Dispensaries to operate within all areas of the City except those zoned residential; •The City by its own admission has issued BTC’s to Dispensaries in the past as an acceptable Use under the SDMC; •The San Diego Grand Jury reported on June 7, 2010 that there are approximately 100 Dispensaries within the City and is seeking clarification from the City as to how to regulate them; •The Federal government acknowledges the medical benefits of synthetic THC (“Marinol”), the most prevalent cannabanoid found in organic marijuana; •The elimination of Dispensaries poses a huge threat to the City’s public safety because if Qualified Patients can’t go to Dispensaries, street dealers and drug cartels will gain a stranglehold on the facilitation of marijuana in San Diego. Yet, despite similar facts Judges in Los Angeles and Orange County have issued TRO’s shutting down Dispensaries. How can Dispensaries prevent the City from imposing a de facto moratorium based upon one man’s interpretation of the City’s zoning laws? First, Qualified Patients and Collectives must take the necessary steps to ensure that they are legally protected by Proposition 215 and SB 420. Doctor’s recommendations must be obtained by all Qualified Patients and Primary caregivers and Collectives must operate as nonprofit entities within the rules set forth by SB 420 and the 2008 CA Attorney General Guidelines. Second, Qualified Patients and Collectives must inform their elected officials and City leaders (some whom are Qualified Patients themselves) of the exceptional importance of safe access to medical marijuana in San Diego. And finally, Collectives must unite behind competent legal counsel and fight this battle in court. The City Attorney’s office has already begun the process to force every Dispensary in the City to cease and desist. Without legal representation it will be very difficult for any Dispensary to defeat a Judicial Abatement action. Southern California NORML has an excellent panel of talented, experienced attorney’s that specialize in these types of cases. For more information about those attorneys ready, willing and able to represent you please contact Craig Beresh at 619-467-1235 or craig@normlsc.org. This article was written by Jeffrey A.

Strain review:

by MICHAEL DILLON

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

46 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.

by JOSH KAPLAN THE SUMMER OF 1969 WAS A PIVOTAL PERIOD IN OUR existence. There were history altering events taking place at every turn, really too many to list. It was the end of a decade, and the height of the flower-power “hippie movement”. From the West coast in San Francisco, all the way across our country to a 600 acre farm in upstate New York, there was a movement taking place - it was real, and it had a name, face, and sound. This period, (that in hindsight was just a fleeting moment) culminated at the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, August 15th-18th, 1969. Being just a two week old baby, I regretfully had no way to get to this show, and of course had no ticket, but that wouldn’t have stopped me today. The modern day festivals are still living in the shadow of this momentous event. Everything from the amount of people (half a million) and the number of arrests (that being zero), to the unbelievable line-up - all of which are still talked about today, and still yet to be matched. Even though the weekend was spattered with rain showers, (which turned the venue into a huge mud pit), combined with a notorious string of bad “brown acid”, these promoters did something far beyond their wildest dreams. They brought this “Peace” movement to the forefront of our society, and in one weekend, proved that this scene, and the people in it weren’t just 50 kush

drug-addled waste-cases. They were able to show that “Peace” and “Love” weren’t just hippie slogans to be worn on buttons. They were actual notions of a period sometimes lost in the distractions of war, moon landings, and political assassinations. With notable musical acts like Richie Havens, Ravi Shankar, Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, The Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, The Who, The Band, CSN&Y, and Jimi Hendrix as a closer, this was a veritable who’s who of the time. Those bands who declined to play (some who deeply regretted it later) were, The Beatles, The Doors, The Byrds, Led Zeppelin, and Bob Dylan. Just imagine if those acts were included on this mega-roster? It’s too much to even fathom. So the next time you’re at Coachella, or venture off to Bonnaroo, or even just go to a local show, try to appreciate your surrounding environment. Those that are there to share the space, and the experience. Take a moment to soak in what’s happening, and reflect on all the ideas, music, and art going on all around you. Maybe, just maybe, we can get this whole “Peace” and “Love” thing back in order. If we can just make enough buttons to make us forget about today’s war, and a catastrophic oil leak, than just maybe we can revitalize a very overdue movement. (continued on page 52)

Meiko Perez’s Story Told by LINDSEY ROGERS 56 kush


Joey Perez had tried it all. He was diagnosed with Autism at 18 months old, and was placed on his first set of medications at 5 years old. At just 10 years old, his fragile body couldn’t handle the toxic cocktails prescribed by his doctors any longer. His mother, Mieko, was helpless. Then she received the most heartbreaking news of all. Joey was given approximately 6 months to live. The doctors had no answers, but they did agree to

knew Joey couldn’t handle anymore dangerous medications. The medications he was on, and had been experimenting with since the age of 5 had taken their toll on little Joey’s body. His body was slowly shutting down. All of his friends and family were watching him slowly fade away. Not only had Joey became anorexic, but his legs had given out on him also. His muscles were weak, his bones were fragile, he could no longer eat or walk. His mother was told she would be planning a funeral for Joey by the years end, and was told he wouldn’t make it until his 11th birthday on March 1st, 2010. The doctors who told Mieko that news didn’t know the person they were talking to. Giving up was not an option. She

Mieko continued, “ I am thankful to the Medical Marijuana Community who stands behind me not just in“spirit” but as Joey’s soldiers like: Michel Lerner from Kush Magazine, William Beaton of 420 University, NORML’s Woman’s Alliance, Montel Williams, Other Side Farms.com, Sam Sabzehbar from medical marijuana 411.com, Devin Calloway of Ajnag.com and numerous publications through out our county and internationally.” “I’ve made it my personal mission to remain “pro-life” and pro-active with common minds and these are the people helping me, so I can help families who need my support.”

Meiko says that “In light of the UK announcing their new cannabis approved drug within the last few months, I’m extending my foundation and my consulting services. Medical marijuana is the future.” Meiko founded the Unconventional Foundation for Autism and hopes many will invest through donations, events, sponsorship and partnerships. This is where Joey’s mom’s information is saving lives one brownie at a time! What medical marijuana, as a biomedical treatment, has done for Joey, thirteen FDA “APPROVED” toxic medications could not do by a guessing medical community who still does not understand autism. The bottom line is revisions need to be made. Rules are broken everyday in politics to fill someone’s pocket. Don’t you think it’s about time we throw money into research that will be used to save a life? With the rise of autism, many lives will be impacted!

Medical Marijuana is a natural glutamate blocker (Gluten Free) and it’s about time the autism community starts OPENLY talking about it!” Meiko is speaking out for hundreds and thousands of families that have said “we are behind you, Mieko. Please help us; help our children.” Meiko believes, this is America, and her experience is the research that those who are skeptical of the medical benefits of marijuana should be looking for.

In 1964 Bob Dylan wrote, “Your old road is rapidly aging.Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend a hand. For the times they are a-changing.” If you have been waiting 46 years for an indication that mainstream acceptance of marijuana has finally arrived - your wait may be over.

Miro, Marks protagonist, wins the Cup only to find himself laying in a California street bleeding from a gunshot wound delivered by the same character who ‘made off’ with his prized marijuana strain.

The Temper Trap

B.B. King & Buddy Guy

8.4.10 @ House of Blues

8.14.10 @ Harrah’s Open Sky Theater

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! www.thetempertrap.com

At age 84, B.B. King has worn the crown as the king of blues for a really really long time. Even at that ripe age B.B. continues to tour the globe, despite saying ‘farewell’ numerous times since the mids 2000’s. It’s almost hard to believe that we still have the opportunity to see this living legend playing the blues live! He may not be around playing live shows for too much longer, so here’s your opportunity to see not only him, but fellow blues god Buddy Guy under the stars at Harrah’s. www.bbking.com

My Morning Jacket 8.11.10 @ Open Air Theatre at SDSU

Chromeo + Holy Ghost!

My Morning Jacket have been spreading their Kentucky psychedelic rock seeds since 1998. Well know for their jam band live performance, this will be a super relaxing show under the stars, perfect for a couple joints and reflection on how awesome this summer has been and will continue to be. Check out their DVD & CD Okonokos to get familiar, that is if you aren’t already a certified fan. Think a more bluesy Pink Floyd concert, or a modern day Phish and you’ll be on the right track for this one. www.mymorningjacket.com

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 “Don’t Turn The Lights On” 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.

In the beginning, Rza wrote the Wu-Tang Manual asking all 8 members for hard work, lyrics, and 5 years of their lives. His “Dictatorship” ended after those years and the release of Wu Tang Forever in 1997. The undeniable leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, Rza sometimes seemed less prominent than say, Method Man, Red Man, or Ghostface Killah. Don’t think that was by accident. Here’s a great chance to see a legendary producer, rapper, and leader of one of the great movements in hip hop history at 4th and B. www.myspace.com/rza

Dave Matthews Band 8.20.10 @ Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre Quite possibly the most prolific American jam band of all time, Dave Matthews and company know how to entertain their fans. It’s really more than a concert; it’s a full experience that should not be met without a healthy filling of THC, an outdoor amphitheatre, and a warm summer night with friends. No matter your mood or state of mind, this is a show that will put a smile on your face and fill you with hope for the future of music. If you’ve never been to a Dave Matthews concert in the summer, you NEED to see them here! www.davematthewsband.com

John Mayer 8.25.10 @ Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre John Mayer gets a pretty bad rap. Some think he’s an emotional ninnie, others a bad boy with a big mouth, or an egotistical asshole that doesn’t care what anyone thinks. The reality is he’s probably a pretty damn cool guy that most of us would love to hang out with. He’s a great musician and although his latest album may not be his finest work, his live show shouldn’t suffer from that. Great guitarist, passionate performer. Expect good things for this night. www.johnmayer.com

T-Pain 8.26.10 @ 4th and B T-Pain probably has way more talent than you think. Just because he is basically the man that made auto-tune popular doesn’t mean this man has to fake anything. Expect him to play the piano like a mad man and show you how brilliant a vocalist he really is. The man is a performer, and this show will be packed... so get tickets early! www.t-pain.net

Huey Lewis and the News 8.28.10 @ Harrah’s Open Sky Theater

Bands are often remembered by their hits, and Huey Lewis and the News have plenty of those. Whether it’s “If This Is It”, “I Want A New Drug”, or “The Power of Love” from the greatest movie of all time, Back To The Future, you probably remember something from these fellas that will have you dancing and singing along. They may be playing at a casino, but these San Franciscans are no gamble. And with close to 30 years under their belt, this may be it, so we’re lettin’ you know to go see our friends from the north under the open sky. www.hueylewis.com

“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 73

FISHING FROM THE PIER ALWAYS TAKES

me back to my younger days as a Boy Scout. Back then all I wanted to do was catch a big fish, and it seemed with all the distractions around me, it was not an easy task. With those days now long gone, I realize what fishing from the pier is really all about. It’s not necessarily about the size, or type of fish you catch, but more about the whole experience - picking a spot, setting up, casting a line, and waiting…. and waiting…. and waiting…. and you get the picture….. The greatest part about fishing has become the waiting. This is when you get a chance to talk to other people, enjoy the great ocean breezes, soak up some sun, and maybe most enjoyable, people watch. These experiences are never boring or monotonous, as each day is always different on the pier, and each pier has it’s own personality. So whether you’re new to the game, or are a seasoned angler, here is a run-down of San Diego’s best fishing piers. You may even want to go and NOT fish? That’s ok too, because either way you’re getting out, and enjoying the San Diego coast. Imperial Beach Pier is San Diego’s southernmost pier, and is within walking distance to the Mexican boarder. Located on a long sandy beach, with short finger jetties to the north, this pier extends 78 kush

out 1,491 feet into the water. With the Los Coronados Islands just off to the southwest, the scene is quite picturesque. With California Corbina, Yellowfin Croaker, Spotfin Croaker, Thornbacks, Stingrays, Guitarfish, and an occasional Halibut at the right time of the year, you should land a decent catch. As you head North from Imperial Beach to the San Diego Bay, you’ll find the Shelter Island Pier. This popular destination is known for it’s motels, restaurants, and marina. After being condemned in 1990, the pier was rebuilt in the summer of 1991. Shelter’s pier only extends 200 feet out, but has a T-shaped end which is 500 feet wide, so there’s definitely room to move. Even though it can get busy, the fishing is good. You’ll most likely catch Pacific Mackerel, Yellowfin Croaker, Sand Bass, or Herring there. Supposedly the longest concrete pier in the world, the Ocean Beach Pier extends 1,971 feet outward, and also has a T-shaped end with an additional 500+ feet. With so much pier to enjoy, Ocean Beach has a very spacious feel, but it’s also known for being a bit dicey after sundown, so take caution. You are likely to catch Bonito, Mackerel, Scorpionfish, Halibut, California Lobster, Sand Bass, and


most common, the Kelp Bass, due to the blanket of kelp near Point Luma where the pier extends.

Croakers, Rays, and even Sharks. Best of all, it’s open 24 hours, so I guess it’s never to late to get your fish on.

Possibly the most unique pier on our list is the Crystal Pier. It’s not the most convenient, or modern, yet it remains one of the state’s top piers. Our guess is because of the Crystal Pier Motel Cottages, that are actually on the pier. Allowing motel guests 24 hour access, (past the normal sunset hours for non-guests) brings a truly unique experience to “pier fishing”. With high numbers and quality fish, you will be sure to have great days at Crystal. With no reef or rocks to attract fish, Crystal Pier is known for four sandy-shore species: Barred Surfperch, Walleye Surfperch, Shovelnose Guitarfish, and California Halibut.

With no state fishing license needed at these San Diego piers, all you need to do now is just pull out that old rod from the garage, and figure out a good excuse to call in sick with tomorrow, (hmmm hmmm, I mean take a personal day). Fill the cooler, maybe grab a little medicine (to be administered back in the car, of course), and you’ve got yourself a great day on any one of these great San Diego Piers. Fun, affordable, and possibly even nourishing? Good Luck, and Happy Fishing from KUSH magazine!!!!!

Another sandy-shore pier is Oceanside Pier. At 1,942 feet, it’s fish are of the long-pier variety, like Bonito, Mackerel, Barracuda, Small White Sea Bass, and an occasional Small Yellowtail. It’s also an excellent pier for Halibut, Sand Bass, and Guitarfish. The Coronado Ferry Landing is also a fishing pier, and although small at only 377 feet, this pier is known for it’s variety of catches, including Mackerel, Bonito, Jacksmelt, Topsmelt, Bass, Perch, kush 79

With the streamers just barely swept up from the Lakers victory parade, and The World Cup well on it’s way to Spain, there is little in the sporting world to look forward to other than the kick-off of the 2010-2011 NFL season, and supporting our beloved San Diego Chargers. Many changes have been made for the impending season, some of which may have been a long time coming, like the inevitable release of franchise player LaDainian Tomlinson. With a 5 million dollar price tag, and his 2 million dollar roster bonus, he has hit the east coast running, and landed a chance to be the JETS number one back. LT has not locked the job up yet, but he has already gotten a JETS tattoo on his right calf, with 2010 - (and a blank spot, for a year yet to be determined) showing his loyalty to his new team. This comes after his Bolt tattoo on his left calf, with 2001-2010 declaring his history in San Diego. This shows commitment, right? Looking forward, the Chargers will tender Darren Sproles a contract, but his inability to carry the ball 15-20 yards per carry, disqualifies him from being a true “every-down running back”. With these issues on the drawing board, the Chargers back field will look drastically different from years past. With LT having lead the Chargers with 75% of rushes, and 88% of

SAN DIEGOS’S BEST DESSERTS SPOTS There is nothing that delights more than an exquisite dessert. A wellexecuted crème brulee can tame an argument and a box of cookies can save a company meeting. Sweets make special moments even more delicious— just look at Valentine’s Day—on the day dedicated to love, chocolate is up there with flowers and is certainly enjoyed more by the recipient. Dessert has come a long way in the culinary world, where the pastry chef is often as revered as the head chef at many restaurants. Sandra Boynton, renowned author of children’s books, was on spot when she cited this important statistic: “Research tells us fourteen out of any ten individuals like chocolate.” San Diego’s culinary scene is no stranger to the divine end of meal and in this very important research, I have sacrificed by waistline to bring you my selection of the sweetest spots in San Diego.

Extraordinary Desserts LITTLE ITALY LOCATION 1430 UNION STREET {T} 619.294.2132 BALBOA PARK LOCATION 2929 5TH AVE {T} 619.294.7001

Since 1988, chef and founder Karen Krasne has been delighting San Diegans with her ridiculously amazing desserts. Trained at Cordon Bleu in Paris, Krasne returns to France annually to stay up on the latest trends and recipes. Extraordinary Desserts is a place for any occasion. I have seen proposals and anniversaries, birthdays and even break-ups in this holy house of sugar. Krasne has won a San Diego Magazine award every year since 1988 when she opened with 10 seats. She truly is a genius and has expanded the menu from tarts, cakes, custards, cookies and the like to include cheeses and bar snacks like bruschetta and beer and wine. Now you can stay forever. *

The Incredible Cheesecake Company 3161 ADAMS AVE {BETWEEN IOWA ST & MOUNTAIN VIEW DR}

Cheesecake might be the most perfect food on earth and this place does it better than most. The small but outstanding menu offers customers the option of ordering by the slice, quarter, half or various sizes of full pies. The selections include a Reese’s Peanut Butter pie and one called the Naughty Hula, which is Kona Coffee, toasted macadamia nuts & coconut blended throughout original cheesecake covered with a layer of chocolate & garnished with more toasted coconut & macadamia nuts. Are you drooling yet? The Incredible Cheesecake Company has been in business since 1981, which is almost unheard of in this day and age of small business. Have a seat at their espresso bar and discover the goodness! *

Heaven Sent Desserts 3001 UNIVERSITY AVE {BETWEEN 30TH ST & RAY ST}

When North Park began its gentrification and fancy condos started popping up next to dive bars, I was saddened to think that I could no longer get a hangover breakfast for less than five bucks or enjoy watching drag queens do laundry at 4 a.m. Thankfully, I can still get that breakfast and the young couples with baby strollers are just as in danger of being mowed down by a drag queen on a Vespa as I am on our way to Heaven Sent Desserts. First, instead of a number, you get a book. How cool is that? The place is small and quaint, like someplace you would find on Diagon Alley. It’s a great place for after dinner or for dinner if you’re like me and can forego veggies for truffles any night of the week! The highlight is the bread pudding, which I normally don’t love but here, it’s out of sight. P.S. They have a Happy Hour daily from 3-6:30 where you can get a dessert selection and a cup of coffee or tea for only $6, or two for $10. *

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: • www.futuregarden.com/hydroponics/systems_nutramist.html • www.hydrofogger.com/?gclid=CImPt_GpwaICFRekiQod6y3_QQ • www.acmehydroponics.net/?gclid=CJGKsJ2qwaICFQyjiQodoCtu7g

Good luck, and happy growing!!
