there are countless varieties of marijuana, perhaps more than any other plant species in the world. Each variety has distinctive characteristics, both aesthetically and kinetically. I believe that it is important to document the various cannabis strains that are available in a particular region, as there is the possibility that they could go extinct.

Hazel Rodgers San Francisco, CA I have to write and send a little reassurance to my old friends. Some of them who saw the gig flyer for the Spring Hemp Tour thought I had really flipped out when they saw the “Greatest Living Guru from the Summer of Love” stuff.

The Cannabis Action Network's 4:20 Hempfest at San Francisco's Maritime Hall on April 20 kicked off with a big smoke-in at—when else?—4:20. Anyone wondering about hemp's cross-subcultural appeal needed only to witness the "chronic" T-shirts and dreadlocked tourheads milling about outside the venue, industriously sparking impressive cones and tasty bowls of bud.

BLUNT AFICIONADO
WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU MIX KIND BUD WITH CUBAN COHIBAS? EXTREMELY HIGH!
[no value]

PROFESSOR Z
With the popularization of the blunt in the ’90s, US weedsmokers became familiar with the European tradition of mixing tobacco with pot. For potheads who don’t regularly smoke tobacco, this “double whammy” can be truly “breathtaking.” In a quest for the perfect tobacco/pot mix, I have traveled the world over—to the Mideast, Africa, Central America, the Pacific islands and Europe.

MARK SIEGEL
The spliff, or cone, is famous in Jamaica and is also popular in Europe, often mixed with tobacco. We recommend rolling with just pot, preferably the green variety. Here’s how to master the technique: 1. Break up the weed with scissors and remove the stems and seeds.

Bronx-born Laura Nyro was one of the finest singer-songwriters to emerge in the late ’60s. While more of a songwriting success than a recording star, her pop constructions were an unbridled synthesis of rock’n'roll, folk, R&B, gospel, soul, doo-wop, Motown, Broadway and jazz.

The cannabis conspiracy is the great American scam. For 80 years, the government has fabricated elaborate propaganda against marijuana—reaching an absurd extreme in 1990 when Los Angeles police chief Daryl Gates said that “pot-smokers should be taken out and shot.”

The US War on Drugs long ago replaced the Cold War as an excuse for government repression and human-rights outrages against peasant organizers. But now that democracies have replaced military regimes nearly everywhere, politicians are beginning to learn that they can get votes by standing up against Yankee narco-imperialism.

MADISON, WI—The US Supreme Court has unanimously struck down a Wisconsin policy that said police officers never have to knock before conducting a drug search. "The Fourth Amendment does not permit a blanket exception to the knock-and-announce requirement for felony drug investigations,” declared Justice John Paul Stevens in the Richards v. Wisconsin decision, handed down April 28.

GAINESVILLE, FL—On October 6, the US government will play roulette with the fate of the Earth when over 72 lbs of the world’s most toxic substance, plutonium 238, is scheduled for a Florida liftoff aboard the Cassini-Huygens space probe. The unprecedented size of the radioactive payload, atop a huge Titan IV rocket, represents an exponential leap in nuclear quantity—and risk.

As we look back over 60 years of marijuana prohibition, we discover, as did the world-weary writer of Ecclesiastes, that there is no new thing under the sun. Whether or not it is apt to compare marijuana prohibition to the liquor Prohibition of the 1920s, there is one useful principle of law from that era which has lain dormant too long.

Summer’s almost gone and winter’s coming once again. It’s going to get real cold real soon and you’d rather not be here, but you’re stuck with mouths to feed and bills to pay and you know you’re not going anywhere. Well relax! It’s time to roll your spliffs, fill your bongs, light up that joint and pass it to a friend while you dream about exotic locales where a good smoke can be found on a pristine beach, or in some seedy shantytown where anything might happen.

FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS, THE TINY VILLAGE OF NIMBIN, LOCATED DEEP IN THE HEART OF THE AUSTRALIAN RAINFOREST, HAS HOSTED ONE OF THE WORLD'S PREMIER CANNABIS EVENTS. HOW DID NIMBIN BECOME HOME TO AUSTRALIA'S COUNTERCULTURE, AND JUST HOW GOOD IS THEIR CANNABIS ANYWAY? WE SENT CHRIS EUDALEY AND ANDRE CROSSMANN TO FIND OUT.

CHRIS EUDALEY
Driving into Nimbin on Cullen Street—the only road in and out of town—we crossed over a bridge painted with pot leaves and Rasta colors. The bridge seemed to say, "Squares, take heed, freedom ahead!” Nimbin is located in northern New South Wales and surrounded by rainforests and mountains.

Nobby: The Jiggi came from an accidental cross between a Northern Lights female crossed with a Thai male. I used these seeds to produce this plant, which grows very tall, and I have to tie down the branches. I usually get a pound per plant of good colas.

PETER GORMAN
Writer, anthropologist and ethnobotanist Wade Davis has spent the better part of the last 25 years exploring the relationship between remote indigenous tribes and the plant world in which they live and on which they depend. Davis, a native of British Columbia, is the author of The Serpent and The Rainbow (1986) and Passage Into Darkness (1988), both based on his experiences while studying Haitian voodoo culture, as well as Penan: Voice for the Borneo Rain Forest (1990).

Everyone has something that they don’t want stolen. Whether it’s jewelry, guns, cash, collectibles or dope, everyone has something they don’t want lying around in plain sight. Imagine a secret place in your home, so well hidden your wife doesn’t know about it.

BACK TO SOIL
What could be easier than clearing out an unused space, hanging some lights on a mover and dumping some premixed soil from a bag into some flower pots? Here's one grower's simple lesson.

Ed Rosenthal
I caught a glimpse of Merv’s plants when they were four weeks into flowering, with another four or five to go. They were very healthy and the buds were developing well. The cuttings, a gift from a friend, were rooted in 6-oz Styrofoam cups punched with drainage holes and filled with vermiculite, a soil amendment available at most garden shops.

It is difficult to take an outdoor plant in, and the plants are usually the worse for it. If the plants are in containers, you should prune dying and yellow leaves and extraneous branches. The plant should be placed in a space with good air circulation and temperature in the 70s.
