Greetings my friends,
I went to Tulsa, Oklahoma for The Green on Greenwood Expo, put on by The Oklahoma Cannabis Business Alliance. It was a very nice event and the very first of its kind in the state. I was born and raised in Tulsa so it was a lot of fun to return and take part in something so groundbreaking. It also gave me a chance to see some family and for them to see a bit of what I do. On my way back to LA, I paid a visit to the good folks at Pharm Aid Farms in Colorado. You can read a full write up about their super cool farm later in this issue. Fran Drescher was one of the very coolest and most knowledgeable celebrities we’ve had the chance to talk to so having her on the cover of the Health issue is a real treat. Elon Musk went on The Joe Rogan Experience last month and it was a very entertaining episode. They sipped whiskey, talked about Teslas, tunnels, magnets and magnates, and later in the show they smoked a bit of a blunt together. Elon didn’t really hesitate to hit it, but didn’t quite look like he knew how to inhale. It seemed like the normal enough way to puff a cigar which makes a certain amount of sense and he also said marijuana didn’t affect him.
I’d like to see him do a dab and hold that hit in, then see how unaffected by THC he feels. That one little un-inhaled blunt puff caused quite a stir among the Tesla shareholders and drove the stock price down somewhat. So did some tweets and things but Joe Rogan had some weird things to say about it afterwards, taking credit for sinking stocks once he was chatting with other stoner comedians. Blunts meanwhile, are more popular than ever and we have all the info on the best hemp wraps and wood tips in our reviews section.
Our Hip Hop issue earlier in the Summer featured Ta Smallz on the cover, and he finally got his day in court facing his mother’s murderer. Sherill Smothers was found guilty of First Degree Murder for killing Marsha Carter in the early 1980s. Justice finally caught up to him over 30 years later and he actually tried to flee rather than show up for sentencing. He was caught later in the day and is currently being detained by police at the hospital while he waits to go to prison. He’ll be receiving a sentence of 25 years to life at minimum. Justice wasn’t swift this time, but at least it finally came and Ta can finally put this chapter of his life to rest. Congratulations.
As always, smile at your budtender, tip your delivery driver, and know your dose.
