The phrase “drink the Kool-Aid” is commonly used when talking about letting hype or peer pressure affect a decision, but it has pretty morbid origins. The saying stems from the 1978 Jonestown tragedy, in which over 900 followers of cult leader Jim Jones died from drinking a cyanide-laced version of the juice mix. Don’t let that stop you from enjoying a glass at your next cult meeting, though: Just add a little more sugar, and that cyanide tang will go right away.

Toxic Kool Aid, a strain popping up in a handful of dispensaries around Denver, wouldn’t be my first choice for infusing a Keef Cola, but I’ll happily stuff a gutted cigarillo with it.

After a week of nothing but clean, active highs from Lamb’s Bread and a few days off the flower during a family trip, going back to a strain with a lineage stretching further than a sequoia would’ve been too much for my simple mind to process. It’s hard to find something easygoing yet delicious in an industry focused on potency, but with nearly 175 retail dispensaries open now in Denver, I was bound to come upon at least one rose among the weeds.

I don’t smoke pot with my dad, but I wish I did. It would be fun to get perspectives on cannabis strains from a man who enjoys his coffee black and his beer cold, with very few exceptions. Not one to spice things up that are fine the way they are, my old man would be a fan of Lamb’s Bread if he ever picked up the pipe — just as I imagine every no-bullshit person would.

Veteran journalist Peter Marcus is leaving the ambitious ColoradoPolitics.com website he helped launch last November in favor of a communications-director position with Terrapin Care Station, a marijuana dispensary chain that’s spreading beyond Colorado. And in explaining the factors that led to his decision, he makes an observation that speaks to the divergent trajectories of the two professions.

Although Colorado-bred strains stretch far and wide through the weed world, no strain with a name honoring our great state has yet to gain national prominence. Sure, there’s Colorado Cough (Fort Collins Cough to some), but it’s hard to find in Colorado dispensaries, let alone around the rest of the country. And while Commerce City Kush, a creation of Denver breeder Rare Dankness, hasn’t achieved stardom yet, either, this hyper-local indica definitely has widespread potential.

Dixie Brands is voluntarily recalling some of its edibles products because of the presence of non-food ingredients, according to both Dixie and the Denver Department of Environmental Health. Left Bank LLC, a Denver marijuana manufacturer that does business under the Dixie Elixirs and Edibles name, recalled six products on Monday, August 21, after the DEH found the “presence of potentially unsafe, non-food-grade essential oils,” the recall notice says.
