You won’t find this for sale at D.I.A.


Passengers flying out of Denver International Airport after a vacation or work trip here have lots of choices if they want to squeeze in one last Colorado activity or buy a souvenir. They can drink local craft brews at cafes branded by Rock Bottom and Boulder Beer, eat at Elway’s or Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs, and shop at the Tattered Cover or Kazoo & Company. They can buy Denver Broncos hats, Climax beef jerky, Rocky Mountain T-shirts, and shot glasses and underwear imprinted with the state flag.
But when it comes to Colorado’s budding marijuana industry, the only souvenir that tourists can take with them is a photo of DIA’s sign prohibiting the herb’s use. More at the Latest Word.

Denver International Airport is suffering through one of its busiest weeks of the year as Thanksgiving travelers jam the ticket and security lines, baggage claims and cab stands, and the restaurants and souvenir shops. And while their suitcases may be full of warm sweaters, early holiday presents and leftover pie, travelers won’t be able to find many last-minute marijuana-themed souvenirs while they’re waiting for a delayed flight.
And soon, DIA may not allow the sale of any pot-themed merchandise at all.

Some great activists are working on fundraising for Reverend Eddy Lepp and have organized a silent auction to help raise funds for his defense efforts. The auction contains a lot of great items to bid on, including vacations, glass pieces, tickets, and a whole lot more.
To see these great items and to place a bid to help out Eddy visit the auction site HERE. Our brothers and sisters sit in jail today because of a safe, enjoyable, and helpful plant. Please do your part to help free the old man from the clutches of tyranny.

Jazz Musician’ Son Brings Brownie To Fourth Grade Class!

Panic broke out this morning at Redwood Elementary School when a local jazz guitarist’s son smuggled in through the opened doors of the grammar school a “red” sequestered Tupperware-covered container of evenly-cut Betty Crocker’s “More Fudge Than Fun Brownies,” for Pebbles Shapiro-Naguchi’s birthday party. There’ll be no birthday celebration in Room 102 this afternoon because of the quick judgment of a teacher who thinks profiling is more than tracing a child’s silhouette.  
This fast-acting teacher intercepted the suspicious treats once the child was caught off-guard opening his desk. Fearing the inevitable — that the child was part of a drug ring intended to imprison our innocent youth from their eight to nine hours of day of playing ‘World Demands To Die Warfare,’ videogames, the untested, sugar-laced, possible store-bought opiates were removed.

There’s nothing like Golden Gate Park’s Hippie Hill at 4:20 on 4-20.

It starts on the downbeat about an hour before noon.
Five cats in assorted guises from assorted backgrounds bang on congas, snares, and on upside-down five-gallon buckets, pounding out an Afro-beats while the first couple hundred of celebrators mosey their way into Golden Gate Park, and to establish themselves at party central headquarters, Hippie Hill.
It will be another five hours or so before the land and the world as we know it will bend in time. The reality that we call Marijuana for some, will change their conscientiousness and for others just take their change. For now, everything seems copacetic, tranquil, and even sedate with just of a hint of backbeat in the air.
Since early morning, folks of all creeds, colors, genders and baseball affiliations, whether Giants or A’s, have been streaming in to what should be the biggest pot party this side of Seattle. Soon there will be nothing but grins, smiles and a lot of nodding.
But for now, there are some 500 people who are animated; chatting gaily laying down blankets and lugging coolers as more and more stoners appears every minute, getting ready for…something.
