Colorado City OK With Dispensaries?

Fort Collins, CO dispensaries will likely be allowed to stay open until the city figures out how to regulate them (see link). A majority of City Council members said they are open to “grandfathering in” currently licensed dispensaries until the city sees what rules are enacted by the Colorado Legislature later this year. Fort Collins city staffers came up with proposed temporary regulations in order to find a good balance for the time being. Fort Collins placed a ban on issuing licenses for dispensaries back in December. Fort Collins currently has 97 dispensaries, including 40 in residential areas. Council member

How Much Should I Be Paying For My Weed?

How much does weed cost? I don’t have a medical card nor do I grow illegally so I have to go out and find marijuana on the “black market.” One question that comes up often when talking to weed smokers all over is “how much should weed cost?” It’s an interesting question that depends on a lot of different factors. Here are a few things that go into determining the price of the weed you put into your bong bowl: 1.How good is the weed? Obviously, the dankest of the dank will run you more than a bag of swag.

Missouri Shows Support For Medical Marijuana

It’s a big day for marijuana fans in Missouri. Members of Sensiblemissouri.org, along with some prospective medical marijuana patients, met with state lawmakers in Jefferson City to show support for HB 1670. The bill, which seeks to legalize medical marijuana, is sponsored by Representatives Meiners and Schaaf. Missouri HB 1670 would: 1. Make marijuana a Schedule II Controlled Substance (currently it is Schedule I). 2. Provide legal protection to a qualifying patient who possesses a written certification for the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Qualifying patients who are minors are also protected, if a parent or guardian consents in

Grower Tip of the Week - How To Get Rid of Spider Mites

I am starting a new series for ‘Grower Tips.’ Essentially, I will post a question on my Facebook wall and see what responses come up. These tips don’t come from me; they come straight from Facebook fans, so take them for what they are. The question posted this week was ‘What is the best way to get rid of spider mites?’ Here were the responses: Shaun Paton — “F.Y.I. ladybugs hunt down spider mites, also the ladybugs do not harm the plant in any way, much better than using pesticide.” Bryan Shanon Hercules Hart — “Zero Tolerance by Ed Rosethal;

My Chong Bong and 'Operation Pipe Dreams'

My favorite possession is my ‘Chong Bong.’ I have talked about it on Facebook quite a few times, and for good reason; it is the best bong I have ever smoked off of. But there is more to my bong than meets the eye. Because of this bong, and others like it, the legendary Tommy Chong had to do hard time in federal prison. I’m sure by now most of the readers already know about ‘Operation Pipe Dreams,’ and how dumb it was, but for those of you that are rookies or don’t get out much, I decided to write

Sunday Interview - Smokey's Gift Shop

  Smokey’s Head Shop In Salem, Oregon One of my favorite activities is going to Oregon’s capital, Salem, and harassing politicians. They are elected to serve the public, and I pay taxes, so might as well get my money’s worth right? Another reason why I go to Salem is to hit up the finest head shop I have ever seen. ‘Smokey’s Gift Shop’ is located at 285 Liberty Road NE Salem, Oregon 97301 (right downtown), and it is my favorite place in the world. This Sunday I sat down with the owner, Ed Lara aka Smokey: Q: What do you

Washington State to Expand Medical Marijuana?

On Friday, the Washington State Senate passed a bill (SB 5798) that would allow more medical professionals to authorize medical marijuana use (see the link for the actual bill). The bill would add physician assistants, naturopaths, and a few other positions to the current list of practitioners. Currently, only physicians are allowed to authorize medical marijuana. Similar bills in other states have been introduced in the past, via the initiative system, but they have always been voted down. This bill is interesting because it was initiated by politicians, not voters, and it passed by a wide margin (37-11). The companion

Stoner Boycotts

Recently, you may have heard something about a stoner boycott against Starbucks. For those of you that haven’t, here is the breakdown; Last month, the organization ‘Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation’ called for a nationwide boycott of Starbucks after the coffee company appeared on the “sponsor” page of the Colorado Drug Investigators Association (see the link). The CDIA is a group of law enforcement officials lobbying to end the state’s voter-approved medical marijuana system and revert back to the old laws. After word of the boycott spread on the internet, thousands of stoners contacted Starbucks’ management to inform them that

Medical Marijuana Coming To Kansas?

One of the most conservative states in the US is considering medical marijuana legislation (see the link). A Kansas legislator has introduced a bill that would legalize marijuana for people suffering from chronic diseases, such as Parkinson’s, cancer, HIV, and AIDS. A Democrat from Wichita, Representative Gail Finney, introduced the bill, which would include a dispensary system. “I just think it’s the right thing to do,” said Finney. As expected, the other side was quick to shoot down the bill. Representative Scoot Schwab, a Republican from Olathe opposed the plan and stated, “Let’s be honest, this would be an attempt
