Cannabis In The House

Jul 14, 2017 ● By Robyn Lawrence

I ingested cannabis for years before I came face to face with a real, live plant. It was a moment. Wowed by her muscular, fierce femininity and overwhelming aroma, I cooed at and petted her while my friend who grew her proudly rolled his eyes. My relationship with cannabis was forever changed, and I began growing my own medicine. I live in Colorado, so I can—with restrictions.

Colorado Road Trip

Jul 14, 2017 ● By Leland Rucker

Larry McMurtry doesn’t just speak for himself when he admits in his book Roads: Driving America’s Great Highways that one of the best things about the US interstate system is that you can travel with almost no interaction or communication with human beings. All you need is a credit card, and you’re on your way. No offense to McMurtry, one of my favorite authors, but when Ms. Billie and I travel, we prefer people over cash machines and avoid the interstate system whenever possible. It’s a good way to get from one place to another quickly, but if that’s not what you’re seeking ... well, Wendy’s is the same, no matter where you order.

Cool Beans

Jul 03, 2017 ● By Robyn Lawrence

I saw my first airstream, rolling down Old Highway 218 in Iowa, when I was seven years old. I’d never seen anything so strange and full of possibility. I wanted that shiny bean with all my heart.

Elevated Escapes

To paraphrase and revise Mark Twain, travel and cannabis are known to be fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.

Voice of Reason

Jun 19, 2017 ● By Leland Rucker

Ricardo Baca has had more than his share of dream jobs. The Denver native started out of college as a television critic at the Corpus Christi Caller-Times before being hired in 2002 as the “underground music” critic at the Denver Post and was later named entertainment editor at his hometown newspaper. In 2013, he was tapped to create and head The Cannabist, an online offshoot of the Post dedicated solely to covering marijuana, which had become legal in the state a year earlier.
