Steven Hager
I've been editor of HIGH TIMES since 1988, and with the exception of a few months, I've continued to hold that job for 15 years. It's been an amazing experience. My first year, I threw cocaine out of the magazine, designed the first indoor grow special, and created a legalization organization called The Freedom Fighters, which swelled to such gigantic proportions I turned the mailing list over to NORML. In 1989, we launched the hemp movement after I discovered Jack Herer’s research.

I am not sure what type of helicopter is on page 49 of the September issue (Sept. ’03 HT), but it is not a Black Hawk Sikorsky as described in the caption. I am thankful for your articles on what William S. Burroughs called “an international police apparatus” and the malevolent effects of the so-called drug war (seems to me to be a money-making scheme from hell).

As we go to press, we don’t have a clue who’s going to win California’s do-over for governor on October 7. However, we’d like to note that Arnold Schwarzenegger earned the cover of an issue of HIGH TIMES (June ’82) back when he played Conan the Barbarian.

Last August in New York City, somebody sent Universal Records— home to Eminem, 50 Cent, Ja Rule, Thalia, and U2—a huge box weighing 150 pounds. Suspicious security guards tried to Xray the package but nothing showed up. When they opened the box for closer inspection they discovered 150 pounds of pot, which the FBI estimated had a street value of $1 million.

Jamaica’s mules are fast becoming extinct. Not the hybrid offspring of male donkeys and female horses but rather "drug mules,” those illicit couriers who transport narcotics across international borders. Since June 2002, the presence of high-tech screening equipment at Jamaica’s two international airports has resulted in authorities busting six times as many mules as they did in 2001.

Tiffany isn't one to get on her high horse, but she firmly believes in the therapeutic benefits of cannabis.

"There is no reason that a licensed physician shouldn't have the ability to offer a proven healing medicine like marijuana," she says.

Pot legalization advocates can take encouragement from a recent Supreme Court ruling that overturned laws against gay sex and sodomy in the privacy of a home. Undoubtedly the tremendous changes in social policy toward gays over the past 30 years came about as a result of the "come out of the closet” movement.

Rucka Rucka Ranch was a communal compound in Marin County where Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir lived. Rucka Rucka wasn’t really a ranch, although there were horses and some other animals there. It took its silly, sophomoric name from something you’d say when you walked up to a girl and gave her breast a little tweak, imaginary or otherwise: "Rucka rucka!”

A heat wave hit California this year. Humboldt and Mendocino Counties got rain in July and August, so some outdoor growers had problems with falling plants and potential mold. For the most part, though, the area was hot, with a lack of fog. Most foggy marine layers were random and rare, which made outdoor growers very happy, and the buds showed their true potential.

JORGE CERVANTES
Serious Seeds’ AK-47 is a very popular, easy-to-grow indica/sativa cross. It was developed with the help of American marijuana refugees in Holland. Their desire was to breed the strongest plant they could find. Their slogan is "Give AK-47 to your enemy and make peace forever!" Since 1992, when Serious Seedmeister Simon first crossed the AK47 genetics, he has been improving it.

THE STATE OF THE STASH
Cannabis is used everywhere in the world and in every state in the US. Its popularity is on the rise domestically and globally, creating an incredible demand for increased supply. Despite decades of global prohibition, cannabis is more popular at the start of the 21st century then ever before, in the US and around the world.

Jon Gettman
In early 1982, the DEA estimated that US growers would produce 2.6 million pounds of cannabis that year. They embarked on a program to destroy as many marijuana plants as they could find, and, in their words, “using a relatively accurate plant count and conservative weight per plant” they realized that they had seized 3.6 million pounds of cannabis by year-end.

Artists are despised in this culture. What young person in his or her right mind would want to become a writer like your subject and friend Jack Kerouac? Miles Davis said to me in 1955, when he was making his comeback and I was playing with Charles Mingus: “To be in jazz and survive, and write artistic music, you have to be strong.”

I’m as concerned about my health as the next stoner but haven't found the motivation to stop smoking and start vaporizing. Sitting around the vaporizer with your friends isn't the same as seeing the glow of the bowl, watching the smoke rise, and knowing you have the ability to give yourself a big hit when you want one.

Drying flowers properly so a good cure can take place requires practice. The variables to consider are temperature, humidity, air circulation, flower size, density, and the manner in which the weed was prepared for drying. Has the plant been deleafed?

HARVEST GEAR '03
Harvest time is a happy time, but one must be patient, not hasty. While waiting for flowers to finish filling out you might want purchase a few specialty items. Some will help improve harvest, others are meant to help you enjog it.

THE CHAMPION SIFTING BOX
$300
During those long and arduous trimming sessions you'll undoubtedly be smoking a lot of pot. If you've never owned a kif collector then you don’t know what you are missing. By simply breaking up and cleaning all your smoke over this box you'll be collecting free hash. The trichomes that fall through to the glass make the best hash in the world. This limited-edition sifting box helps keep your coffee table free from pot dawdle. It features a 120-mesh stainless steel screen, raised rubber feet, bottom sliding tray with hand-cut smoked glass, and brass-tipped dowel rod closure. Made from solid hardwoods—like lacewood, red oak, and walnut. Champion measures a whopping 24" x 18" x 4 1/4" and sells for $300.
Funtazia
MAGNIFIER
$9.95
This lighted magnifier turns out to be one of the best and cheapest you can buy. It goes in and out of stock at RadioShack, and you may have to check with a few stores until you find one. You'll enjoy the view if you do. For only $9.95 (in Manhattan's Chinatown) you get a very bright, directed light and 100x magnification. Even if that's slightly exaggerated it's far better than the average lighted scope with 30x. It features zoom and focus knobs that work great. At the end of the scope is a plastic spacer with a hole. This automatically creates optimum distance from the light source. Place something over the hole and slowly turn the focus knob until crystal clarity comes into view. This is a great way to judge peak ripeness before harvest, or to compare quality of different material without smoking.
Funtazia
WATERPIPES BY FUNTAZIA
$340
The Hurricane should put a smite on any toker's face. It comes in several sizes and supports many unique features. Handblown in Germany from heavy-duty borisilicate glass to withstand a lifetime of accidental tip-overs. Each piece is sandblasted to fit like laboratory-grade equipment. No gaskets or grommets here! Its most notable feature is the reason for its name. A tiny, precision hole at the center of each bubble creates a cyclone effect inside the chamber when smoke is drawn through it. This supercools the smoke, while also creating a centrifugal effect that removes some of the heavy tars. Many sizes and bowl types are available. Hurricanes start at $340 and go up to $2,500 for the Scorpion model, of which only 7 were made for all of North America. Hurricanes are available in 4 sizes; 250, 600, 750, and 1,000 ml. There’s also a mini-Hurricane, a combination hand pipe and incense burner that retails for $40.
Funtazia
CALCULATOR SCALE
$50
This new scale is truly unique. It’s slim and portable at 4"x 5 1/2", and barely 1" thick. With a built-in calculator you can perform all sorts of necessary weighing functions. Tare and memory functions can be used in conjunction. Perform calculations without removing the item being weighed. You can compare cost/weight ratios of several items at the same time. Each scale comes self-contained in a sturdy plastic case. All the function buttons are embedded in the case’s lid. There you’ll find a quick function guide in addition to a useful reference manual. The scale runs on 3 AAA-batteries and each has plus or minus .1 gram accuracy. For a reasonable $50, $60, or $70 (respectively), 150-, 250-, and 350-gram models are available.
Funtazia
DRY FLOWERS CLEARING SOLUTION
This specialty root wash is meant to be used in the final stages of plant growth to ensure that all nutrients and residues are cleared from the plant before harvest, producing plants with enhanced flavors and no chemical taste. Clearing Solution is scientifically formulated with natural minerals and plant extracts that cause a plant to use up stored nutrients in its leaves and flowers. At least one week before harvest, stop using your nutrients and add 5 ml. Dry Flower's Clearing Solution to each liter of fresh water in the reservoir. Mix well and adjust pH to 5.5. There are directions for soil applications and for using DFCS to correct nutrient buildup in plants and medium. This specialty product will produce a cleaner, fresher-tasting finished product. Especially recommended for hydroponic gardens.
Funtazia
TWILIGHT FLAVOR INTENSIFIER
This enhancement product from Life Circle's Millennium Nutrient line will work great with any growing method. If you've been using Millennium without Twilight you're definitely missing out. When used in the last week of feeding, Twilight balances a plant's ability to maintain life against maximum flavor. Twilight is a reduced fertilizer blend that makes the end of a crop's cycle a bit bracing. Because of the proportion of late-season salts in Twilight, the plant's osmotic system is upset, in effect, forcing the plant to keep more complex carbohydrates rather than transport them down to the roots.
Funtazia

$25
Hot on the heels of RSG-1 comes the second installment of HIGH TIMES' Ultimate Cultivation video series. This volume shows you what to do with your leaf clippings and trimmings—make bubble hash of course! Ultrapure and premium potency hash is what you'll get from material once considered trash. You'll learn how to make and dry your own high-grade hash that can be 2-4 times stronger than the smoked flowers themselves. RSG-2 will also teach you security measures to help keep you safe. Plus, what to say and do if Officer Friendly shows up at your door. You'll also learn advanced hydroponic techniques for the next time around.

December is the slowest month for outdoor growing. Harvest any plants that are still standing in warm climates. Save seeds from crops and store in a cool, dark, dry place. Keep the humidity as low as possible. Add a small packet of silicon to jars and containers where seeds are stored.
