Keeps Growing By: Christina Smith

As cannabis gains more mainstream popularity and legal status in the United States, the stigmas and baseless drug laws that have stifled cannabis for nearly a century are beginning to be stripped away and a new social acceptance has emerged. In an effort to show support of cannabis culture and to capitalize on the recent “green rush,” celebrities have recently begun forming their own cannabis brands and partnerships in states that have legalized marijuana for recreational use. Rap artist and celebrity, The Game aka Jayceon Taylor has joined the likes of Snoop Dogg, Bob Marley, Tommy Chong, Willie Nelson, Wiz Khalifa, Whoopie and Maya, Ghostface Killah and others and has created his cannabis brand called ‘Trees by Game,’ in partnership with The Reserve dispensary in Santa Ana, CA and GFarma Labs and more recently in partnership with Be Lit Brand and Shine Papers. We wanted to find out more about ‘Trees by Game’ and other interesting facts about The Game and his relationship with cannabis so we delved further. The 420 Book: So you are a pretty fascinating and accomplished person. You’ve done everything from winning Grammy Awards, to number one albums on the Billboard 200 Chart, to starting your own record label, to appearing on a dating show, voicing characters on video games, and appearing in movies. There’s quite a lot of very impressive material there but the main focus of my interview today will be about cannabis since The 420 Book is a cannabis free guide to doctors and dispensaries in the Los Angeles and San Diego counties. So I know that you have a line called ‘Trees by Game.’ Can you tell me a little more about your brand? The Game: Trees by Game is basically, a lot of people say – it’s just a flower brand, it’s just marijuana – but it’s not. It’s just a big brand, sort of umbrella to anything that I have going on as far as the marijuana industry is concerned. We’ve got now 10 different strains of marijuana under the Trees by Game label. We just license weed out, we basically grow our own strains and then license them out to dispensaries in LA and Southern California. Of course, over the next eight months or so we’ll be expanding on that. Also we have trades, we have a deal with Be Lit Brand and doing a deal with Shine Papers, and just basically collaborative efforts by Trees by Game – rolling papers, lighters, rolling trays, merch – all of that and other collaborations with pretty cool companies. It’s sort of cool just sitting back and watching everything just grow and be cool, ya know?

THE 420 BOOK


The official partnership between ‘Trees by Game’ and Be Lit Brand was announced just recently on February 27, 2017 after the two met at the BIG Industry Show and High Times Business Expo in Los Angeles in January. GFarma Labs are the cultivators growing the strains for Trees by Game and Shine Papers is the first company to create elite rolling papers made out of 24-karat gold. The 420 Book: That’s very cool. So, you have several different flower strains under ‘Trees by Game.’ Do you have Indicas, Sativas, hybrids? You’ve got a little of everything? The Game: I think we got ‘em all. Ha-ha. The 420 Book: Very nice. So do you have a preference? Which one do you like the most? Do you like Indica? Sativa? Hybrids? The Game:You know what, it’s all cool. You know how back in the day before everybody got so particular about this strain or that, I just smoke weed, aiight. Makes no difference to me. If I smoke and it makes me sleepy, then guess what, I’ll lay down. If I smoke and it keeps me going then I keep going. But the one thing that stays consistent with me is that I don’t turn down the smoke. The 420 Book: Sounds like ‘Trees by Game,’ has got a lot of different things going on. You also have a THC-infused Lemonade, right? The Game: There’s three flavors: there’s Strawberry, there is Original and there’s Raspberry. They are all amazing. We’ve got G-Lemonade, which is my favorite. You can one-man can it, if you’re really about that life, but I think just sharing it with someone else and take half and you’ll get a pretty good high. It’s the body high – not like the body high like edibles gives you but for sure if you’ve definitely had a long day and you want something real legitimate, just drink half a bottle and I swear; you’ll have the best time of your life. The 420 Book: Very cool. I can’t wait to try it. I was in The Reserve dispensary a few months ago and I saw your flower there and it looked delicious. It was sparkling and it smelled really good. I can’t wait to try it! The Game: Ha-ha, yeah, it’s dope. The 420 Book: So is it only available in The Reserve right now or do you have plans to expand to other dispensaries? The Game: Well it’s only available in The Reserve which keeps it exclusive for now and it’s dope because people really like going to The Reserve and like you said, you go there – basically I got OCD in my life and everything has to be clean and nice and sort of modern and in The Reserve you don’t feel like you’re walking into one of those dirty-ass dispensaries. It’s really nice and everything is well-lit. It’s just a great overall experience, professional, and you feel comfortable in clean environments so a lot of people like going to The Reserve so for now it’s in the Reserve and as the company grows, Trees by Game, Green Street, we will start branching out here and there and servicing the marijuana community worldwide. Green Street Agency is the cannabis creative agency that manages the ‘Trees by Game’ brand. The 420 Book: Very cool. I can’t wait to see it here in San Diego where we live, where The 420 Book is located too. The Game: Shit, I can’t wait! The 420 Book: Great, thank you! So I definitely know you like to smoke, do you also indulge in edibles, vape pens, tinctures, topicals? Do you kind of explore that realm of cannabis too? The Game: FLavrx has my favorite gummy worms and basically the tape [CBD Transdermal Patch]. And they also have the best out. To me, I put it on my knee, not only did it put me to sleep, I put it on and wake up with no pain. I keep using it and trying it and it really works, really, really, really well. Man, I love FlavRx, it really is a nice product and it’s something that really is the next round that people need to look into.

The 420 Book: Okay, cool. That’s good to know! So what do you use cannabis for? Do you use it to help fuel creativity? To write music? Do you like it for relaxation? Just kind of everything? The Game: I just use it for relaxation. The 420 Book: Do you like to wake and bake at all? Or not so much? The Game:I wake up in the morning and do a little cardio. I’m pretty lean, I scramble some eggs and make oatmeal or something like that, drink water, I’ll smoke a bit to get my day started and just relax my mind. The 420 Book: Which method of smoking do you like more? Joints? Blunts? Bong hits? Pipes? Vaporizing? The Game: I like my Shine papers first thing in the morning. It’s the gold papers. I stuff it with indica and I keep it rolling. The 420 Book: So Shine Papers. Tell me a little more about that. I know you’re partnering with them. Is it like an all-natural leaf paper? The Game: It’s an all-natural leaf without the harsh taste. It’s really, really amazing, the flavor is amazing. It’s all fresh, you will not find the package where any leafs are damaged or dry cause it’s just not how we get down. There’s been no complaints yet, it doesn’t have any of those problems. Slowly but surely we’ll put all those other brands out of business. We got a better product. Most of these other companies, they aren’t even for cannabis, they’re for tobacco, and it’s one thing that these Shine leafs do, they’re created to focus on marijuana first and foremost, and a lot of these companies, once you smoke it. You should try one. I think everyone should try one. Slowly but surely we will knock everybody out the park. Shine Papers are the first company to create 24-karat gold rolling papers along with X Shine rolling papers by Tyga, gold blunt wraps, and natural shade leaf wraps. They also have a white gold line of rolling papers and ‘tattooed blunts’ that look like $100 bills. A 12-pack of 24-karat gold Shine rolling papers costs $55 on their website. The 420 Book:What is your favorite thing to eat when you’re high? I know everyone’s got their go-to munchies, what do you like? The Game: Oh my god, I’m on one of these dumbass diets. The only thing I have is a protein shake. I make a turkey sandwich with pepperjack cheese and spinach, or something like that. And that’s it and some rice paper chips or something cuz my diet is weird, but normally I would just open up a pack of Takis and some lemonade. But I’m trying to get this weight off before summer and cut up so I’m of course, I’m basically eating construction paper. The 420 Book: That’s really good, that’s really disciplined because I’m all about some Flaming Hot Cheetos and stuff like that. The Game: Yeah that’s why if I gotta pick my poison otherwise it would be Starburst, continued on page 24 Where the grass is ALWAYS GREENER on the other side

continued from page 23 Flaming Hot Cheetos and fucking Slurpees mixed with Churros. The 420 Book: Mmmm. That sounds really good… The Game: Amazing, right? Why does all the shit that actually taste amazing, suck for your health. If you think about it, it could’ve been the opposite, you know? Why does it have to be like that? But it is what it is. The 420 Book: Very true. So how old were you when you first started smoking cannabis? The Game: I think I was maybe ten years old or something and it’s just crazy because I have a ten year old and I also have a fourteen year old who I can’t imagine them even remotely getting close to weed. My house is so sheltered. I don’t smoke in the house, I don’t smoke around my kids; they don’t know anything about marijuana so it’s just crazy to think that I was ten and fucking smoking a joint. But really, if you go back in the day, back in the 80s, you know, when I got left at home, my mom would go to work all fucking day for me to watch my siblings which are younger than me, and I was like eight years old, so you know, it’s just, times have changed. These days, like my eight year old, well Cali is seven, if you leave your kids alone these days you’ll probably go to fucking jail, number one. The world has changed, you know. Parents are a little bit more overprotective so yeah I can’t see my kids smoking until they’re probably adults. My kids don’t even know anything about weed so they probably won’t even get into it.

The Game:Exactly. The Game touches on some important facts about educating one’s kids about the truths about cannabis. Simply lying to them (“it’s a gateway drug”) or scaring them away from it (“it’s as dangerous as heroin”) without actually educating them about the facts is not going to necessarily or effectively keep them from experimenting with it. Right now his kids are too young to be having that conversation but when they reach their young adult years, The Game believes that one day he will be enjoying the medicine with his matured kids. With more and more scientific data proving the wide-range benefits of the full spectrum of cannabinoids and therefore, disproving its sensationalized dangers, we should be seeing increased positive social mores and sensible laws surrounding cannabis culture. The 420 Book: How are you going to be celebrating 420 next month? The Game: We got a big event in the industry, and I would love for you guys to come out and cover it and come help and smoke with me a little bit, but it’s gonna be huge, we’re doing a few things. Video game tournament – a big event – we’re doing some dope shit. But Josh will give you more details. Joshua Shelton, of Green Street Agency, is The Game’s manager for ‘Trees by Game.’ And yes, Game, I would love to smoke out with you on 4/20. The 420 Book: Have you ever gotten in trouble with the law regarding cannabis? The Game: I can’t say that I have but I quit licensing and doing the things that I needed to medically do my thing. But I’ve never gotten in trouble for cannabis, but that is the reason I got shot. I got shot and damn near murdered over it in terms of weed back in 2001, which it ultimately led me on the road to being who I am so I guess it is what it is. The 420 Book: Yeah, damn that’s crazy. You were in a coma for a while after that, right? The Game: Yeah for just a little bit under a week. And I came out of that. A coma is kind of like a real short dream. Jayceon Taylor was shot five times at his apartment that he sold weed out of on October 1, 2001 by some unexpected visitors at the door. Luckily he managed to call for an ambulance but had slipped into a coma for a few days from the gunshot wounds. While recovering, he decided that he wanted to become a rapper.

Well, probably senior year of high school, something like that, you gotta be realistic with yourself. And one day when they do, we’ll smoke together. And you know I’ll tell them, regardless of their dad, not sneaking out smoking with their friends or being surprised, something like that, something that’s so cool for them to not want to tell their parents about it, and you know, their moms and me, we’re pretty young, we’re pretty cool and you know, we’re from the cool era. And I say, and I tell everybody, if you have kids, if you were the kids and you had parents that were born in the eighties and nineties, you’re going to have the most chill fucking parents ever. So It’s all good so we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it but for me, I was ten years old and I fucking coughed and I didn’t smoke again until I was probably about fourteen… and I thought I had just died. The 420 Book: Yeah it’s all about educating your kids and being smart about it so I like that you’re being a really good parent that way; it’s great. 34

THE 420 BOOK

The 420 Book:Wow that’s so crazy; what an experience. I’m really glad you pulled through… So my next question, we have certainly come a long way from the days of stringent prohibition and taboos surrounding marijuana, yet we still have a long way to go. What do you think about the states that that have successfully legalized cannabis for medicinal and recreational purposes? The Game: I’m excited about it... I think that there are still laws and parts of the legalization of marijuana that needs to pass basically in the next 5-10 years as far as legislation is concerned so we’ll just wait. I think that right now, to get into the cannabis industry, I’ve been waiting a long fucking time because those laws wouldn’t pass. Well if you know if you remember back in the early 1900s – well, we weren’t alive, but about prohibition – so the Patrons and Hennessey’s of the world were, of course, smugglers and hustlers back then. There were all these thriving alcohol companies but that’s basically now where we’re at with cannabis, so we were in the same space. At first it was just an illegal thing and now it’s getting more legal and more legal and now we have investments and companies and products…


The 420 Book: In February a bill was introduced in the House of Representatives called H.R. 1227: Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017, which essentially removes cannabis from the DEA’s Schedule of Narcotics. Do you think this bill will pass? The Game: I hope it passes. Then that would mean marijuana offenses would get straight out of jail, which would be really good. Which is all good, if you think about marijuana and the issues that come along with it, I think more has been done with it being illegal as far as people getting murdered and killed and shit like that, than it would if it had been legal this entire time. I mean, it’s really a flower, it’s not really a drug, it doesn’t alter anything. You can function, normally, once you’re more relaxed. You just, it’s just a good thing, man, so I hope it passes it would be a good thing.

The 420 Book: Any albums in the works right now? The Game: No, right now I’m just working on this R&B album called, “You, Me and Her.” I’m not featured on it; it will be a collaboration of R&B artists that I like. The 420 Book: Next Big Thing? The Game:I got a few shows coming up and the 420 Thing. My kids birthday is 4/25, so I got a few things coming up that are gonna put a smile on a lot of people’s faces. The 420 Book: Anything else you would like to say to your fans? The Game: Play by the minute. Live life. Have fun.

We are excited to see the ‘Trees by Game’ brand expand and continue to form partnerships For more information regarding H.R. 1227 Ending Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017, please refer to my article in this month’s issue of The 420 Book titled, “Could This Finally with other cannabis companies in California. We also look forward to seeing his various strains of flower available in San Diego dispensaries and in other counties in the Southern Be the End of (Federal) Marijuana Prohibition?” California regions. In the meantime, head over to The Reserve in Santa Ana, CA to try it out! The 420 Book: The cannabis community can use all the help it can get in regards to celebrities coming forward and supporting the legalization movement. It helps strip the taboos and normalize the use of the medicine. Do you plan on getting involved with politics in any way to help this bill pass? The Game: As it comes I’ll make decisions based on how involved I want to be or not at all, so I’ll just wait and see. I’m not really one to get involved in politics. Some things work great and I’m always willing to help out a cause. The 420 Book: What do you think is the biggest myth surrounding cannabis? The Game: The biggest myth is that it’s harmful to people, that stuff’s bullshit. Like, come on, man.

Could This Finally Be the End of (Federal) Marijuana Prohibition?

By Christina Smith

There are currently twenty-eight states plus the District of Columbia that have some form of medical, recreational, or decriminalized cannabis laws in this country. With over half of the states moving the momentum of this country forward with billions of dollars in state coffers as a result of its taxation and regulation, it would be pretty difficult for the federal government to have a ground to stand on if all of its states pass some form of legalization laws. Some sources have predicted that if this momentum continues on the path it’s on, all states will have adopted medical or recreational laws by the year 2021, but until “marihuana” is removed from the DEA’s Schedule of Narcotics under the Controlled Substances Act, marijuana will continue to be illegal on a federal level and will continue to make things complicated for businesses and consumers that wish to participate in interstate commerce, utilize the benefits of banking, and be safeguarded from potential federal raids. But there may be a light at the end of a very long tunnel. On February 27, 2017, Representative Thomas A. Garrett, Jr. (R-VA) introduced H.R. 1227 Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017 to the House of Representatives, which was then referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce in addition to the Committee on the Judiciary. Senator Bernie Sanders proposed this same bill in November 2015 but failed to receive the support he needed from his fellow senators to move it forward. The main component of the bill will deschedule cannabis by removing it from the Schedule of Controlled Substances Act. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration cannabis is a Schedule I drug that “has no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” Statements like these are pretty laughable to cannabis enthusiasts and the thousands of doctors worldwide that would disagree with this false assessment of cannabis, as it has been used in treating many psychological and physical ailments and diseases for thousands of years. Just recently on March 16, 2017, the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations. If it passes the House, it will go to the Senate. If it passes the Senate, it goes to the President. If the President approves it, it becomes the law of the land. With the pace at which our Congress moves, this could

be years before it gets anywhere. As it stands right now with a Republican-controlled House, Senate, and Presidency, it’s very hard to say if this law will pass. This administration hasn’t exactly surrounded itself with forward thinkers. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been very overtly outspoken in his opposition to marijuana, stating that, “Good people don’t smoke marijuana.” He exaggerated the negativity of cannabis when he said “It’s not recreational. It can be destructive, and it consistently is destructive. Lives are at stake…” The only lives at stake are the ones ruined in the criminal justice system and those that suffer the repercussions of the black market and cartels that have thrived as a result of its prohibition. The facts show that it is physically impossible to overdose and die from cannabis, so how it is “destructive” is also perplexing. He also made the comment that “I am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana – so people can trade one life-wrecking dependency for another that’s only slightly less awful.” Comments like these prove that Sessions is not only misinformed about the vast differences in marijuana and heroin; it shows that he isn’t bothering to seek scientific research and facts and statistics that would refute his absurd claims. Although the misinformation campaigns continue to dominate the conversations about cannabis from our government leaders, there are some major forces propelling legalization moving forward, and that is in the form of money. According to the founder of GreenWave Advisors, Matt Karnes, retail marijuana sales in the U.S. in 2016 were approximately $6.5 billion, an increase of 35% from 2015’s $4.8 billion. He said, “In 2017, we expect growth of 18% to $7.7 billion as new medical use markets come online.” He also believes that California will account for 40% of the market. Even if President Trump challenges the recreational marijuana market, GreenWave Advisors forecasts that the market will hit $18 billion by 2021. If all states carry the momentum forward and legalize for recreational or medical use, by 2021, retail marijuana sales will reach $30 billion. Now that’s a force to be reckoned with. So while our leaders will continue to fight against federal legalization and decriminalization, it’s really only a matter of time until (nearly) all states pass some form of legalization. At some point, the federal government must address the realities of cannabis and admit that it’s not the dangerous and harmful substance worthy of a Schedule I classification. We are eager to see the progress of H.R. 1227 and hope that it swiftly moves through Congress without significant delay.

pot served with an olive By Rob Starr

Today, you can dab it, enjoy concentrates, bake it into cookies, smoke it through glass pipes and get high with the help of specially designed vape pens. Looking for a more traditional route to enjoy your weed? No need to worry about all those other methods spoiling your fun if your idea of good times is still getting stoned and listening for a backward mask in Stairway To Heaven—pot is still enjoyed everywhere in blunts and joints. And now there’s even a weedtrepreneur who has combined what’s old and new by marrying one of yesterday’s favorite ice breakers with today’s Mary Jane. Modern Martini Rx is a line of premium scientifically formulated cannabis cocktails. These innovative party starters are the brainchild of Brooke Wiseman and although the brand doesn’t contain any of the namesake alcohol, each flavour has 50-300mg of the finest cannabis that stimulates and invigorates, relaxing muscles and soothing pain while lifting your thoughts. Wiseman explains how this creative innovation that comes in a variety of interesting flavors like Absinthe Pear, , Ganja Grape and High on the Beach started. “I like distilling and blending, creating and design and the fact that I’ve put all that together,” she says. “The alcohol industry is very saturated and competitive, so two years ago I had the idea to take my brand, Modern Martini, remove the alcohol and infuse it with cannabis.”

THE THE420 420BOOK BOOK

The idea was groundbreaking but not very easy to implement. She explains how the vodka product had a patented bottle design that she used as a fulcrum to head out in a different direction. “My passion was more medicinal. I loved to medicate with cannabis more than drinking vodka,” she says adding that her background as a business woman in Las Vegas prompted her to create Modern Martini Rx’s predecessor, a ready to drink vodka line. After she moved to Southern California, Wiseman found a shift in the popular culture to cannabis. “People in Southern California don’t go to the bar and drink as much. They vaporize, and eat and smoke marijuana.” This lifestyle change prompted her to hire a chemist who she worked with for eight months to replace the liquid buzz in her products with an herbal one. The end result of their liaison is what’s been called The World’s First Infused Cannabis Cocktails. They are complete and ready to drink with different varieties that only need to be chilled and poured into a Martini glass. everything comes in 12 or 24 packs. The Chrome Collection even includes energy drinks, capsules and Magic Macarons cookies. Modern Martini Rx, is a unique product and a bridge to enjoying weed in a new setting. “You can drink cannabis and it can be social in a different way,” Wiseman says.

Donald Bouchard is the founder and CEO of Alegre Science, a San Diego based supplier of magnetic resonance instrumentation for a range of industrial applications such as the agricultural industry.   Alegre Science has teamed up with a Sacramento based start-up started by 3 chemists looking to make a better extraction system for plant materials. What is Alegre Science introducing in this issue of The 420 Book? In a word, melloeX. The world’s simplest and best liquid-CO2 based extraction system for botanicals.  What is so exciting about this product is that it is selective and simple which I’ll describe in more detail.  You’ll also hear some more features beginning with the letter “s” such as safe and silent (it’s a passive device) and storage, because of a patented idea to store each pass of the extraction in a sealable container. What’s so selective about it?:  As we’ve noted above, the melloeX is a liquid-CO2 extraction device which means that it does not use supercritical CO2.  There are many advantages to working in the sub-critical CO2 liquid regime.  We’ve called it the melloeX because the conditions under which it operates are not harsh as what is found in the supercritical extractors.   The liquid-CO2 extraction process might take a little longer, it turns out that it is worth the wait. The actual extractor operates at less than 5 °C (just above ice temps) during the extraction process.  What that means is that it retains all the terpenes to preserve the flavor and fragrance of the oils which are so important to the enjoyment of the oil vapes. Successive extractions (roughly two hours in duration) of the same buds yield fractions which are successively lower in oils but higher in actives. The fourth extraction requires the addition of some ethanol (in the form of 190 proof grain alcohol) to get the brittle product which is a whopping > 95% actives.   There’s also no need for winterization because the conditions are so gentle and don’t extract the waxes. An additional benefit of the lower working temperature of this extractor is that labile compounds are preserved in the process.  In comparison, supercritical extractors have a higher working temperatures ( greater than 100 °F) and the acids are lost. What’s so safe about it?: The extractor is what engineers describe as “over-designed” in terms of the device’s safety factor.  Since it works under pressure, safety was our #1 concern and the melloeX is designed to withstand more than 4 times the normal operating pressure.  In fact, it is impossible to get the device to such pressures.  There are also pressure relief valves if the extractor gets to 150% of the normal working pressure, so there is absolutely no hazard like there is in butane extractors. What’s so simple about it?: Well, that’s the beauty of the melloeX, you have a simple device to assemble, put your buds in a porous paper cup, add dry ice to the extractor and bolt it shut using the torque wrench provided.  You then warm the body up to get the CO2 to a gas which builds up pressure in the device, then you circulate the ice water through the system for about two hours to extract the oils and the actives.  The beauty of this devices is that the extract collects into a sealable container, an airtight sealable container which give the person or the lab the flexibility to collect multiple passes of material into the same containers.  It also allows users to store them under more inert conditions so that the oils don’t oxidize.  Terpenes are reactive with oxygen, so the less oxygen on the sample, the longer the oil will last.   You are making a lot of claims, how can you back all this up? Well, we are all chemists by training in the company and we rely on a technique called gas chromatography to analyze each extraction product.  We’ve got the data and next month in The 420 Book, we’ll show you the proof! How can anyone whose interested see this technology?: Well, starting in April, we will have demonstration units available to demonstrate how this works. We are also going to provide free demonstrations in a number of locations in Southern California, those who are interested should contact us.

How scientific research makes for a good trip

In Translation? Party animals might the interest of balancing the kind of information people are getting in this have decreasing memory capacity era of fake news, we thought it be a good idea to explore the white lab coats’ as they get older for several reasons work and publish some findings from the National Institute on Drug Abuse but it’s unclear whether booze, weed about the effects our favorite herb has on your brain. or even the occasional ecstasy pill erases those brain First of all, let’s get the stats that we can agree on out of the way because cells faster. Then there’s the fact that nobody is going to get to retire anyway. the numbers say that marijuana use is trending upwards. The National Insti- It’s more likely you’ll be shoved out of your job by some smart software that tute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports 22 million people have used pot in the never tokes or sleeps. last month and the trend whereby men use more than women continues to escalate. They also report that using pot is a widespread activity among both Respond to cannabis adolescents and young adults. Here’s a few things that we know now after 20 years of research into how pot affects your brain. There are parts of your gray matter that respond to To Be Fair THC. That might be just another scientific attempt at stating the obvious The NIDA does a lot of good things including tracking new drug abuse but we should all consider the fact the endocannabinoid system is all a part trends and helping us understand how drugs work in the human body, but of the organ in your skull that responds to cannabis. have you ever noticed how any government agency spends a lot of money There have been many studies done in the last two decades that show on stating the obvious?

Pot has even found a place as an alternative medicine for several brain disorders like Tourette’s popularity waves and there’s an insider’s message in all those precocious syndrome and schizophrenia. dogs and thinly veiled innuendos about the munchies. Now, in the interest of the kind of fair and balanced reporting that you don’t see a lot of these days, here’s a few more statistics we found from the Unlikely Bedfellows NIDA that might cause at least some concern initially. Keep in mind that If you’re looking for unlikely bedfellows why not convince your fellow we’ve got a spoiler planned. stoners to put the headphones down long enough to read The National A large study that came to us from New Zealand seemed to point to the Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine recent publication that states fact that smoking marijuana in adolescence pointed to a significant drop in clearly marijuana is a good substitute for traditional medications in treating IQ later on in life.

THE 420 BOOK


Politicians who’ve toked Born To Be Wild By Rob Starr ever watched the news and wondered if some of the politicians who make up the rules and regulations we live by had gotten their hands on some good weed at some point in their lives? Have you ever read a quote from a senator or congressman and wondered if maybe they were pulling your leg with the things they said to the press because they knew you were stoned and could remember what that felt like? Either way, if you have an inkling that some of the people who walk through the hallowed halls of our government might have indulged in a little smoke before they got there, you wouldn’t be wrong. In fact a little research shows a number of our most esteemed political figures might be even smiling for the camera for more reasons than just to get your vote.

Buzz Kills

Still, it’s more than likely a good idea to get the buzz kills out of the way first and that’s why we need to mention Bill Clinton front and center. Back in his Rhodes Scholar days at Oxford, Clinton admitted to experimenting with Mary Jane but said that he didn’t inhale and didn’t like it. Isn’t that a lot like studying to get a driver’s license and then waiting to buy a self driving car? Anyway, it sounds like Bill was doing what political types do best when he made that statement about the herb, so we should move right along to those elected officials who understand the value of a credible poll and a fresh package of Zigzags. Jeb Bush may or may not raise a few eyebrows. In our books, he gets the number one position for politicians who’ve toked because he was the governor of Florida and we think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone in the Sunshine State who didn’t understand how well the sound of the ebb and flow of the pounding surf is complimented by the gurgle of a good water pipe.

There’s a great story about the Jebster. A former classmate of Bush’s at Phillips Academy tells the tale of how the future governor got him high at school and put on some Steppenwolf. Born to Be Wild, maybe, but not president. The number two position goes to Ted Cruz because if you take a long serious look at this senator from Texas who was a 2016 republican presidential candidate, you’ll see a striking resemblance to Alfred E. Neuman. At that point the question of marijuana use at some point in his life seems clear. Still, his people stand tall against the use of the evil weed although they do make the concession that the smiling senator experimented with marijuana when he was a teenager. In fact, one of his spokespeople even went so far as to say it was a mistake and he never tried it again. However, that explanation doesn’t account for Ted’s What Me Worry smile.

Enthusiastic

Then there’s Al Gore. A published biography has him pegged as an enthusiastic recreational user back in his college days “sometimes smoking as much as 3 to 4 times a week.” John Warnecke is an old friend of this past presidential candidate who also says: “We’d get stoned and talk about what we would do if we were president.” Wonder if there were any groovy pot dreams about hanging chads.

Pumping Pot

If your resume reads star of movies like Pumping Iron and Governor of California, the chances are there’s an interesting background to your story that might involve both bar bells and some flower top. For most people who know anything about Arnold Schwarzenegger it’s not a surprise that he smoked a little pot back in 1977 and is even immortalized enjoying a toke in the movie Pumping Iron. Finally, there’s at least one addition to our list that might surprise you because the former mayor of New York City who always wore a pinstripe suit liked weed as well. Honesty has always been the best policy regardless of the legal status of pot and Michael Bloomberg not only admitted to smoking pot in an article for New York magazine, but he also said he enjoyed it. And people say politicians never tell the truth! Where the grass is ALWAYS GREENER on the other side
