Four months after opening up the application process, the Aurora Marijuana Enforcement Division awarded the city’s 24th and last retail store license to the Green Solution.

“The Green Solution is a professional corporate organization that is focused on security, compliance and interested in being a partner with the City of Aurora and its officials and citizens,” says Robin Peterson, manager of the Aurora Marijuana Enforcement Division, who notified all applicants of the decision via e-mail on February 27.

Daniel Soligny.


Daniel Soligny had a good life, except for the whole health insurance thing. He didn’t have the most glamorous job, sure, but spending 14 hours a day on rollerblades at Sonic Beach Miami Gardens kept him active, and his girl, Jacqueline, was always by his side. Although he was 20 and she a young-looking 35, the couple was a psychic match — enjoying weekend outings to South Beach and goofing off.
Then he found out he had tumors on his testicles. Chemo? Nope. Cannabis? Yes. Read more over at the Broward-Palm Beach New Times.

After just a few weeks of ingesting raw cannabis and taking Nternal oil at night, the spider-web-like mass found in my left breast during both a mammogram and subsequent ultra-sound, was nowhere to be found during the first scheduled biopsy. 
While there was still a target point for a biopsy, and the oncologist wanted to proceed, I made a deal and bought another month of time. I continued to ingest a green drink made with cannabis in a blender daily, and began ingesting RSO (Rick Simpson Oil), also known as Phoenix Tears, nightly.
During the second scheduled biopsy one month later, the “target point” was gone, with the attending physician declaring, “No biopsy needed.”

“Nature’s Choice” is a dispensary located near South Colorado Boulevard and Evans. This ad appeared in a recent edition of Westword.

​​Denver City Council members, in the midst of hammering out regulations for the city’s medical marijuana dispensaries, suggested Wednesday that they’d bar recently convicted felons from getting into the business of dispensing pot.

The council held no formal vote on Councilman Charlie Brown’s package of proposed dispensary regulations, Christopher N. Osher reports in The Denver Post, but agreed to meet in committee again on Dec. 16.
A full set of dispensary regulations will likely go before the city council in January.
Brown’s initial language, requiring applicants for marijuana dispensaries to state whether they had “ever been convicted of a felony, or of violating any federal, state or local law governing the manufacture, distribution, possession or use of controlled substances,” struck some council members as too onerous.


One of the most interesting and admittedly humorous aspects of being a foot soldier for the War on Prohibition is having the opportunity to duke it out against a legion grey haired propaganda suckers, who even though they may have never smoked a joint a day in their lives, remain adamant that alcohol is more appropriate than marijuana.
In a recent article from The American Spectator, Editor in Chief R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. suggests that alcohol, specifically a scotch, is a more civilized recreational inebriate than marijuana because “one does not sit down to a scotch and soda to get blitzed, unless one is a veritable drunk.” He then proceeds to suggest that marijuana users are no different from the “sad spectacle” of the true alcoholic because both users consume their substance of choice for one reason: to get “blitzed” and “dropout.”


When a Colorado community doesn’t want a marijuana cultivation warehouse, some people assume that the area is anti-pot and, therefore, anti-Colorado. However, one Boulder farming community is fighting a battle against marijuana that has nothing to do with any stereotypes about the plant.
Paul Cure of Cure Organic Farms has spent the last ten years building up a certified organic farm with his wife, Anne. To be certified organic by the government, the Cures had to pay thousands of dollars in fees and maintain strict requirements on their growing and handling of food.

Toke of the Town editor Steve Elliott celebrating three years of high points and big hits

Three years ago today — actually, three years ago tonight, at 7:08 p.m. Pacific time — my THC-stained fingers hit the “Post” button for the first-ever story on Toke of the Town.

“The good thing about a free marketplace of ideas is,” I wrote, in the first sentence ever to appear on this site, “despite the best efforts of prohibitionists and their fear-mongering propaganda, the truth eventually prevails.”
More than 3,600 stories later — and with hundreds of joints, medibles, and bongloads littering my path — I’m still loving this gig, and judging by pageviews, so are close to half a million of you every month.

I think it’s essential at Thanksgiving that we remember what’s important and yes, what we are thankful for, as we lay out our fat pants in anticipation for a day of complete stuffage. Before we begin the mental preparation needed for enduring the forced march that is Uncle Bill and the onslaught of his incredibly misguided and alcohol-scented opinions, before it gets crazy, this is what I’m thankful for. 
I’m thankful that every day, marijuana becomes more accepted.
I’m thankful for the people who celebrate 4/20 as a holiday. It is a flame for the rest of the world to smell.

This past week many were shaken of news that a highly respected and prominent member of the Humboldt community was taken into custody by the Humboldt County Drug Task Force for cultivation of cannabis, with child endangerment charges added, due to an indoor grow in a garage.
Seeing the sad faces in mug shots of those taken down for something voted on and legal in our county and state is always disturbing. When it’s the teary-eyed face of a dear friend, it’s devastating, and gives more questions than answers.
How could this wonderful person of such high standing be in this kind of trouble?

Knee surgery this past week has me thinking about pain, true tolerance, and why so many Americans are bent on being anesthetized. 
The Institute of Medicine states, 100 million Americans suffer from some kind of pain at a cost of $635 billion a year.
ABC News reported in January of 2012, 80 percent of the world’s pain meds are consumed in the good old U.S. of A.
Experts site our increased life expectancy, cancers, and a soft, sedentary lifestyle as the cause, but what of the rest of the world? Why are Americans suffering so? Or are we?
