THE FIRST MARIJUANA MAGAZINE
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
Steve Bloom
In a recent radio interview on Dean Becker's Drug Truth show, which is syndicated nationally by Pacifica, I claimed that HIGH TIMES was the first marijuana magazine. I was wrong. HIGH TIMES debuted in June 1974. It was an outgrowth of the Underground Press Syndicate (UPS), which Tom Forcade ran before he founded HIGH TIMES. By the late '60s, there were more than 500 underground newspapers and journals across America, distributing 4.5 million copies.

Breeder Steve's comments on the deceitful practices of Emery Seeds ("Let It Seed," Feb. '05 HT) were right on. I've been a grower since the mid-'70s and last spring ordered 100 seeds from Emery. Results? Less than a 30 percent germination rate.

CANNABREX TRANSFORMS YOUR THC INTO POTENT POT PILLS.
[no value]
[no value]
DAVID SILVERBERG
To some heads, a smokeless high is heresy, but to others it’s the Holy Grail of healthy cannabis consumption. And now, thanks to a Montreal-based company called Cannabrex, getting your THC intake without toking just got a whole lot easier. Forget Marinol, this is the real deal—potent pot pills produced in the privacy of your own home.

Cannabrex president Peter Horowitz on the best way to take advantage of pot pills. What’s the ideal way to put THC into the pills? Chopped weed is effective, but not the best because varying potencies make it difficult to determine dosages.

JAM CRUISE 3 LEAVES DRUG ARRESTS IN ITS WAKE.

What better way to get away from it all, than by setting sail for international waters with a few of your best buds on a cruise featuring such jam-band A-listers as Galactic, Umphrey's McGee, Karl Denson, John Fishman and Les Claypool? For 1,787 of the 1800 passengers who signed up for Jam Cruise 3, the answer is that nothing could have been better than five sun-filled days and four jam-filled nights out on the water—free from dry land, free from work or school, free from US drug laws, and free to enjoy the context-free vacation fun of relaxing aboard an aircraft-carrier-sized cruise ship while taking in set after set of completely improvised music.

STEVEN HAGER
A Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter—one of the last of that dying breed—passed away last December, without much fanfare from the national media that destroyed his career. Consistently blacklisted after linking the CIA and the Nicaraguan contras to the cocaine trade, Gary Webb, 49, died of two gunshot wounds to the head, one day before he was scheduled to move out of a home he could no longer afford.

Matthew Robinson
In the spring semester of 2001, I taught a class for the first time on the War on Drugs. Despite having broad training in criminology and criminal justice, this was not my primary area of expertise, so in initially developing the course content, I relied heavily on a few sources of information—most notably the federal government’s Office of National Drug Control Policy.

Sigmund Freud—the father of psychoanalysis and an incorrigible stogie smoker—once famously remarked, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar," by way of explaining why he couldn't break free from his 20-tobacco-tubes-per-day habit, which he kept up even after acquiring an ultimately fatal case of mouth cancer.

In creating Star Wars, director George Lucas relied heavily on the work of a college professor named Joseph Campbell, who spent his life comparing the separate strains of mythology that have flourished everywhere on Earth since the invention of language, finding in these stories many more similarities than differences.

You might assume that blueberry muffins are not a particularly interesting topic—even if the aforementioned muffins are made with enough ganja butter to stone a small army. You may particularly be excused for feeling this way if you're under deadline to write 500 words on the topic of blueberry muffins.

BOBBY BLACK
The year was 1990, and a band billed as Angel of Death had overbooked two nights at Brooklyn's rock capital, L'amour. Of course, this ruse fooled no one—we all knew who was about to perform. The darkened dance floor was turbid with the chants of the adrenalized audience when, suddenly, the sound of pouring rain bellowed out from the speakers, followed by a bass drum's triple thumping and one of the evilest guitar licks ever unleashed.

Known best for the pre-9/11 weed anthem "Because I Got High," Afroman has settled into his role as a novelty weed act. The rapper's last CD, Afroholic, included the instant stoner classics "Let's Get High Tonight" and "I Drive Better Drunk."

OPERATION HIGHRAQI FREEDOM
From the first moment word leaked out that my unit might be deployed to the Middle East, I had the hope of finding cheap hash there and smoking it out of a hookah with the locals. And while that never exactly came about, I did find plenty of hash. What follows is one soldier's account of what it's like to be high in Iraq.

I joined the military in 1993, back when the thought of invading and occupying a Middle Eastern nation would have blown most people's minds. I had just graduated from college with a degree that was more fun to get than practical towards getting a job, and I could not afford to spend months looking for work.

How did you get involved in Reefer Madness? My brother Christian is the lead in it. I've been a big fan of it and wanted to support it in some way. So, do you smoke pot? [Laughs] Well, I was just in Amsterdam. What's your opinion of US marijuana laws?

Hail, Caesar!
HIGH TIMES visits a loner grower who's pushing the grams-per-watt envelope and producing huge yields in his personal-use garden. We came both to praise Caesar's buds and to smoke them.

A solitary young man, Caesar, by his own admission, has few friends—but the few he does have are both loyal and fortunate. Two of those friends contacted HIGH TIMES and insisted that we meet the man they called "the best grower in —," a small Northeastern state better known for its Republican voter bloc than its contributions to marijuana cultivation.

BIG CROPPA
My buddy Lennon likes to joke about how small his apartment is. What really cracks him up is how well its unassuming size helps hide the nine primo pot plants he's got growing under the loft in his bedroom. Here's what it took to get him on the road to stoner self-sufficiency: "Every time I considered growing, I had visions of sleeping on the living-room futon in order to sacrifice my one bedroom to the operation."

Alexander "Sasha" Shulgin has taken more psychedelic drugs than any human in history. Not in volume (godspeed to that anonymous cosmonaut), but in variety—including scores of molecules that never even existed until he came along to invent them.

Publishing has always been the lifeblood of science, allowing knowledge to flow from one mind to the next—often over thousands of miles or hundreds of years. In the '90s, after his controversial experiments left him virtually blacklisted by the major scientific journals Sasha Shulgin turned to self-publishing to keep his theories and inventions in the public record.

I have $1,000 to $1,250 to spend on lighting, but I want to know which ones are the best. I'll need to grow the clones in a separate area while the other plants are flowering.

Warm weather is here. Outdoor weather affects the indoor climate. When temperatures climb, cannabis uses more water and proportionately less fertilizer. Top off the nutrient solution in hydroponic reservoirs with water every day. Check ppm and electrical conductivity first.

Pre-flowers, as opposed to full-blown flowers, generally appear after the fourth week of vegetative growth from seed. Check carefully above the fourth branch node. Note that pre-flowers are very small and virtually impossible to differentiate without magnification.

You, the grower, have complete control over the two factors most closely related to yield: how long you leave your plants in the vegetative stage before flowering them, and what light cycle you use. The amount of time you allow the plants to vegetate (grow) will either achieve or upset balance in your grow-room.

INHALE
$175.99
Not just healthier than smoking, vaporized cannabis tastes better, too. Heating herbs without flame accentuates their essence, while the psychoactive cannabinoids—which heat up at lower temperatures—are inhaled without tars or burnt flavors. The kit from Vape It includes the vaporizer itself [the only whip-style unit made of marble], a hose with a fabric hose cover and matching pouch, a grinder and an aroma diffuser [used for vaporizing oils in aromatherapy). The whole kit comes in a padded, locking metal case for security and protection from damage. Durable and stylish, the Vape It vaporizer has it all. Price: $175.99 Contact: Vape It, 866-352-8948, vapeit.com.

Piranha
$114.40
Well known for their ability to devour prey in seconds, piranha quickly break down flesh into easy-to-chew pieces. Beneficial fungi perform the same task for plants, munching on nutrient elements and making them easier for roots to digest. Containing 26 different types of microscopic cellular creatures, Piranha from Advanced Nutrients is specifically formulated for growing cannabis organically. The mycorrhizae in Piranha colonize the soil mix or hydroponic reservoir, making for healthier, more vigorous plants. Price: 500 g, $114.40; 1 kg, $202.40, 2.5 kg, $404.80 Contact: West Coast Growers, 888-924-4769, westcoastgrowers.com.

851 Car Air Purifier
$89.95
Designed specifically for use in vehicles, the 851 Car Air Purifier utilizes a five-stage filter system to aggressively decontaminate your closed travel environment. The HEPA filter traps particles such as pollen, dust and pet dander while an ionizer attaches negative ions to particles in the air, causing them to descend to the floor. An activated carbon filter absorbs smoke and odors, improving air quality significantly. A photocatalyst filter breaks down and eliminates harmful fumes, and an ultraviolet light kills germs, fungi and bacteria as they're ventilated. Clean the climate in your car and improve your atmosphere. Price: $89.95 Contact: BreathEZ, 800-734-3220, breathez.com.

Most marijuana fans agree that some of the best pot in the world grows in Humboldt County, CA. Is it the climate, the soil or the growers themselves? Editor-at-large Dan Skye explores the region and provides some answers. When you say "smoke," Meth and Red say How High, as in the classic stoner flick that sent the Abbott & Costello of hip-hop to Harvard in search of kind buds and big laughs.
