Anyone who’s been to a Lettuce show has likely seen people in the crowd enjoying weed (among other things), but the band serenading pot plants in person takes cannabis cultivation to a whole new level.

Days after Lettuce’s show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 15, members of the funk band showed up at one of Terrapin Care Station’s cultivations with their instruments and gave the plants and employees a live show. They played some tracks from their new album, Elevate, and didn’t shortchange those in attendance, bringing along enough instruments and equipment for a legitimate set.

Using cannabis legalization as a platform to popularity is all the rage for this latest round of Democratic presidential candidates. Nearly every candidate in the blue party has endorsed some form of cannabis-policy reform, ranging from full-scale legalization at the federal level to letting states decide on their own.

Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper, who announced his run for the White House on March 4, arguably has more experience with the issue than any other candidate in this primary race: He presided over the state’s implementation of recreational cannabis from the vote for Amendment 64 in November 2012 through early 2019, when he was term-limited out of the governor’s slot. Under Hickenlooper, Colorado has earned more tax revenue from legal pot than any other state so far and boasts one of the most advanced medical marijuana programs in the nation.

Marc Emery compared the oppression of the cannabis community to that of the Jewish people

By Bryan Punyon
Special to Toke of the Town

Fair Warning: This article begins with material that some may find offensive, but for a point.
“Why do Concentration Camp shower heads have eleven holes? Because Jews only have ten fingers.”
Find me a joke about the Cannabis community that borders on that kind of black humor. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
“What’s the difference between a Jew and a pizza? Pizza doesn’t scream when you put it in the oven.”
Same challenge. Still waiting.
“Holocaust jokes aren’t funny, Anne Frankly, I won’t stand for them!”
Gotta love wordplay. Some of my favorite jokes are the result of clever word choice. Still nothing on the offensive Cannabis jokes? Well, then.
Many will find these kinds of jokes offensive. To be honest, they’re some of the tamest Jewish jokes that I know. It’s called Gallows Humor, the art of turning tragedy into hilarity, because the alternative to doing so is to give in to despair and disgust. For an oppressed people to claim the language used in their own dehumanization is a form of cultural empowerment, and part of that includes the use of their own slurs and derogatory humor.
 If a Jew tells Holocaust jokes, do you have the right to be offended?
We will return to that question shortly.
I am a Jew, and I am a Cannabis activist, and I’m pretty annoyed that Marc Emery would equate one with the other

Russ Belville probably knows people who like kiddy porn, and it is unclear what his involvement in this kiddy-porn scandal really is.
Okay….That is probably not true. Or maybe it is. Who knows?
But I can reference it and speculate here and on my personal blog because the internet is a wonderful place. In turn, unsuspecting and gullible people on the internet could read my piece, and many may start to spread this dirty rumor around.
The next thing you know, Russ is knee-deep in some kiddy-porn scandal that he has nothing to do with, and which is weakly evidenced as ever even existing.
But the damage is done, right?

Wanna see a lot more of this at Hempfest? You could next year, if I-502 passes.

A Hempfest marred by dozens of busts for people just passing the joint at 4:20? Say it ain’t so!

It could happen if I-502 passes and is enforced as written.
But you’d think Seattle Hempfest would be heaven on Earth after the passage of “legalization” Initiative 502 in Washington state, if all the information you had to go by was a Marc Emery quote — posted by trophy wife Jodie — on Facebook today.

“Next year at Seattle Hempfest, if I-502 passes, everyone will be able to carry an ounce of marijuana around on their person and not be concerned with arrest!” Emery wrote from prison. “Or losing their job! Or losing custody of their children. Or violating probation. Or getting a criminal record.

The Marijuana Project

By John Novak
The Washington State Office of Financial Management has finally released its much anticipated report on the marijuana “legalization” initiative, I-502. (See link to the report at the end of this article)
While it claims that the state could see a financial windfall in the billions from the taxation and regulation of cannabis, it also warns of some very serious consequences and the possibility of zero revenue.
Steve Sarich, a well known Seattle area medical marijuana personality and anti-I-502 activist, sued the Office last month, stating the early numbers being used “are so far off it’s incredulous.”
He and the other activists that joined the lawsuit demanding a new report that included all the risks, including possible results from federal lawsuits.

Legalize It

Seattle Hempfest and two Seattle churches will host sneak previews of the new cannabis documentary Legalize It, a “socially conscious” film on Proposition 19, the 2010 campaign to legalize marijuana in California. 
Scenes from the film will be shown at Seattle Hempfest on Saturday, August 18 in the afternoon in the Hemposium, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers and film participants. Participants include Presidential candidate Governor Gary Johnson, his running mate Judge Jim Gray, Dan Rush (director, National Medical Cannabis & Hemp Division at UFCW) and I-502 “legalization” advocate and celebrity trophy wife Jodie Emery.
