Buying Marijuana in Colorado for Nonresidents

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

I sold marijuana to a man who showed me a license from Alabama when I asked for his I.D., and after I handed him his order, he just stood there and stared at the bag in his hands. The moment stretched on, seeming stranger by the second, so I asked if everything was okay. “No,” […]

Colorado Marijuana Laws

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

Every so often, after I’ve sold someone marijuana in our dispensary and handed over his or her order, he or she will look at me as if they’ve been left holding the bag (quite literally). He or she will hold their pot like it might bite, and then he or she will confess: “Um… this […]

Marijuana Side Effects

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

Prescription drug commercials are the best. They’re always filmed in subdued slow-motion with an ethereal, gauzy quality, kind of like a soap opera.

Children and Marijuana

Saturday, August 26th, 2017

You can pick your platitude—oil and water, family and business, drinking and texting—because they all work: children and marijuana don’t mix.

Think about it: when you first read the words “Easter Island,” you pictured one […]

Legal Marijuana, and Homelessness

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

I’ve never met Joseph Kolb, or anybody else from Fox News for that matter, but I’d like to. I’m pretty good at explaining things to people, especially matters of simple logic, and Mr. Kolb needs a lesson of sorts. Recently, he wrote an article for Fox News titled “Legalized marijuana turns Colorado resort town into […]

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

It’s plagued pot smokers for centuries. That awful feeling of a completely dry and barren mouth. Ugh…what an terrible way to spend the next two hours of your life. Will switching to edibles actually solve this problem? I’m afraid not, the inhalation of smoking is not what causes cotton mouth. It’s actually the THC that […]
