Jesus: Galileean, Son of Man, and ... cannabis user?

Shall we take some time this week to discuss the real reason for the season – the winter solstice? OK, the Return of the Light here in the Northern Hemisphere may be a bit conceptually remote to fit within the framework of modern American life, so perhaps we should jump through human history to the layer of Christianity that...

VIDEO: The best MJ strain for that ugly Christmas sweater party

The one thing that can make an ugly Christmas sweater not so ugly? Weed. But which strain is best?

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Bad Santa’

This week’s DGO is rather Christmassy (if you haven’t noticed), so it’s only appropriate that I recommend a holiday film. But don’t get your childish hopes up about some family favorite like “Elf” or “It’s a Wonderful Life.” “Bad Santa” is a black comedy directed by Terry Zwigoff (who also did “Ghost World”) and it’s raunchy,...

Stocking stuffers for unlikely stoners

Nobody wants your homemade piece of crap picture frame. Ditto that for those bullshit “personal coupons” you printed off Pinterest that will immediately get lost. And I swear to gawd, don’t you dare gift a janky mason jar scene unless you are Leonardo da Terrarium.

Instead, go to Animas Herbal, 1111 Camino del Rio, No....

Hemp can help us move away from petroleum-based fuels

Current times bring something Bob Marley said to my mind: “Herb is the healing of a nation.” Bob, being Bob, was discussing spiritual matters, but like so many things he said, this prescient statement has implications in all realms. We stand today in America on the razor’s edge. I believe that we must change if we want to...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition – ‘Arrival’

There’s something about being high at a movie theater that the act of Netflix-and-chilling at home cannot duplicate. There’s the convenient array of snack choices (expensive, but worth it), enormous screens, the swell of music, the communal act of experiencing a story alongside a bevy of strangers. The powerful combined...

Consider cannabis for effective relief of chronic pain

I painted a self-portrait a few years ago. In the end, it looked nothing like the “me” others might recognize, but it was very instructional relative to some of the paths I’ve been down in this lifetime, especially those that have left physical injury and pain.

The final product of my Cray-Pas doodling is a group of...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘The NeverEnding Story’

Wolfgang Peterson’s “The NeverEnding Story” (1984) is one of those campy, scary, wildly imaginative films that most kids growing up in the ’90s took fanatical pleasure in watching at sleepovers. And what’s better than a combo of weed and good old-fashioned nostalgia? (Hint: Nothing).

It begins with a kid named Bastian...

You’ve grown it, but now it’s all about the cure

The 2016 harvest is in. The season now begins its high energy wrap-up as stalks come down, fan leaves get snipped and tossed, the remainder of the plant gets hung and the trimming and drying processes kick into high gear.

I remember those days fondly, from that almost comical first run of a dozen-and-a-half little...

Thank NORML as you puff, puff and pass the turkey

With discussions these days of “Pilgrims” and “Indians” inevitably leading to Columbus, genocide, dispossession and a whole bunch of other topics that do nothing positive to aid digestion, today we’re going to settle into the sweet zone and give true thanks to a group of people that all of us fans of Mary Jane can appreciate...

This is your brain on cannabis

Steven Fenster, neurobiologist and associate professor of biology at Fort Lewis College, gave a recent talk about the science behind marijuana’s effects on your brain. Following this student lecture, given as part of Animas Hall’s “Welcome to your Life” series, Fenster gave DGO the lowdown on the difference between compounds...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition: ‘Gilmore Girls’

Nobody doesn’t like “Gilmore Girls.” Firstly, it’s a series filled with more witty references to movies, art, history and politics than you could possibly understand in a lifetime. Secondly, it’s one of the most feminist TV shows of all time (almost every single lady character is an intellectual of some sort). And thirdly,...
