Legal weed gets an ‘A’ ... except on pesticides

I believe that the “Colorado Cannabis Experiment” is one of the most successful legislative initiatives introduced in our nation, at any level, over the past decade or more. Were I grading it, I would be hard pressed to find enough problems with the progress of Amendment 64 as it approaches the two-and-a-half year mark to...

Strain review: Berry White

What its its?Whether you call it Berry White, White Berry or Blue Widow, they’re all the same strain, which is a cross between indica Blueberry and hybrid White Widow. It’s a very hearty and relatively easy plant to grow with good yields and a respectable THC level coming in at around 22...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Boys Don’t Cry’

In honor of Durango Pride this week, I’m recommending my favorite LGBTQ film: Kimberly Peirce’s “Boys Don’t Cry” (1999). Yes, it’s named after that song by The Cure, but here the title is a little more coy. The film is based on the tragic true story of Brandon Teena (played by Hilary Swank), an American trans man from...

Legalization and fighting for the soul of Mary Jane

If there is one constant in life, it is change. As the cannabis industry, ummm, grows, the people who’ve been involved with weed since “the old days” (by that, I mean before 2012) have a range of beliefs concerning whether the overall effects of legalization are positive or negative. The spaces between these opinions are the...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition – ‘Old Joy’

Kelly Reichardt’s indie drama “Old Joy” (2006) is a gentle, contemplative film for the stoner who doesn’t need car chases, intricate plotpoints or more than two characters to find a story engaging. All that happens is two old friends become reacquainted over a weekend road trip in Oregon. Reichardt is known for filming in the...

Weed review: Alaskan Thunder *#@$

What is it?ATF is an old-school sativa that was bred in the Matanuska Valley of Alaska. It was originally created in Northern California by crossing a local sativa with a Russian Ruderalis, but in the 1970s it was brought to Alaska and mated with an Afghani male to improve its stability...

Watch what you eat, especially when it comes to edibles

There are a few possible outcomes upon consuming cannabis edibles:

1) You have a wonderful time. Everybody has a wonderful time. You love everybody and everybody loves you.

2) You fall asleep.

3) You completely freak out. Dark shadows consume the happy places of your soul formerly occupied by Smurfs and...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Deep Blue Sea’

The director of 1999’s “Deep Blue Sea” (Renny Harlin) knew he couldn’t top Spielberg’s iconic “Jaws,” but still tried to make his shark movie bigger, badder and a whole lot sillier. Instead of one huge shark, Harlin has three. They’re 26 feet long (Jaws was 25). And the coup de grâce – Harlin’s sharks are SMART. Getting...

Driving while high: Some words of warning

The evidence on the scientific side is a bit unclear but, I assure you, should you be driving and encounter a law enforcement officer after having partaken of the bounty of Colorado’s beautiful weed gardens, the ensuing process will almost certainly not resemble the lighthearted shenanigans from the movie “Super...

Weed review: Lemon Diesel

What is it?This strain came highly suggested from a knowledgeable grower friend, and I’m glad I took her advice. It’s a bit of an unknown, and so are the genetics. Its parents are actually a combination of California Sour and Lost Coast OG. Coming in at a very respectable 24.3 percent THC,...

Netflix & Chill: 420 Edition - ‘Cosmos’

There’s a series on Netflix called “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” narrated by astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson (NDT), and it will blow your freakin’ mind. Or possibly you’ll try watching and give up, because the show has cheesy, outdated “Dr. Who-”style graphics and the whole thing is basically just Degrasse Tyson talking...

Strain review: White Girl

What is it?White girl is a seriously-powerful sativa-dominant punch in the face that should only be consumed by professional smokers. At almost 30 percent THC these naturally-tiny nugs pack enough trichomes to push even the most seasoned tokers to the edge of their ability to stay...
