Re: “Talkin' With the Law

Nice to have a law enforcement leader who tells it like it is and has the sources and facts to back up his responses.

Re: “Tokin' Women: A shout-out to women in cannabis

Nola Evangelista is correct. It's Alice Toklas and the first she ever knew about pot brownies was when she inadvertently included a recipe from her friend Brion Gysin for them in her cookbook. She was totally unprepared for the furore that broke out as a result, not apparently having any idea of the implications of including hashish as an ingredient. She certainly never would have served them up to guests at Gertrude Stein's salon (Gertrude was long dead by the time the recipe came to Alice).

Re: “Tokin' Women: A shout-out to women in cannabis

Nice article (and headline)! This story repeats the myth about Queen Victoria using cannabis; we dont know that for sure, only that one of her physicians sang its praises. Also questionable is the Alice B. Toklis [sic] speculation. Heres some more accurate info on Stein and Toklas:

And here's Tokin' Women's official International Women's Day post, where you can read about Ten Tokin' Women from Egypt, India, China, Norway, France, Serbia, Denmark, Ireland, Scotland and the United States:

Folks can buy the Tokin' Women book (and support Cal NORML) by visiting:

Happy Womens Day everyone!

Re: “Super Nova

How sturdy is the device? I've heard some complaints about the NOVA failing after a few uses, does it suffer from any problems after repeated use?

Re: “Opposing Views

There isnt a single Medical Patient in Oregon who is expericeing a "massive oversupply, instead they are experiencing MASSIVE price increases and no access to RSO from reliable safe vendors. Thats a HUGE problem. I appreciate you are at least trying to get real peoples perspectives, thank you.

Re: “The Good and the Bad in Pot Bills in Salem

Allowing medical producers to sell to the dispensaries will generate additional tax revenue for the state. Many OMMP producers have been pushed to the black market since all the regulations made it impossible for them to sell legally. Of course rec producers don't want this as they currently maintain an (almost) complete monopoly. To suggest that it would lower revenue by driving down prices is absurd. Many dispensaries happily sell the outdoor they purchase cheaply in Fall at full price. Weed prices don't drop, they just make additional margins. Also if someone running 1000+ plants can't compete with 48 it's time to choose a new occupation.

Re: “A child of D.A.R.E. recalls her first weed experience

Best weed column EVAH!


A fellow lady who was also Valedictorian of Everything and got on Deans List at Major Fancy University while whuffyin' green buds every day, but then at two bites of pot gingerbread and spent many hours convinced she was DYING, and ten years later is only now getting around to medical cannabis.

PS: Did you know that some weirdo-freaks experience psychoactive effects from just plain CBD? Turns out a very rare few of us do.

Re: “Where Weed Falls Under Trump

I can't help myself. I gotta jump in here. As an editor I tend to think I have a fairly good command of the English language, and fully believe in the "you gotta know the rules before you break the rules" logic. Josh knows the rules of the English language, and uses humor, nicknames and idioms to make light of a very tenuous situation, all in a voice that makes sense for an alt weekly paper. It's all about audience. Were he lobbying in the legislature, I assure you his tone would change.

Indeed, the industry has grown up. That's why we titled a recent article Ganja Grows Up:

Re: “Where Weed Falls Under Trump


Regarding your speculations about what happens next for cannabis:

You do realize a lot of that depends on people like you, right? Mr. Trump is a businessman and in many states - such as ours - the marijuana industry is now a "real" business. There's an old saying about behaving like you wish to be treated. You want cannabis to be treated like serious business? Then stop acting like child and start talking like you represent a real business. Your continuous use immature nicknames might play well at the local coffeehouse but in the real world few are going to take your opinions seriously when you can't even carry on a dialogue using respectful terms.

The cannabis industry is growing up - time for you to do the same.
