“Kush” is one of two strains (the other being “Afghani“) of cannabis plants indigenous to an area covering Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan and north-west India. This is the range of the Hindu Kush Mountains. Hindu Kush means “killer of Hindus.” And this is some killer cannabis. Kush is an indica, from the high mountains, where the […]
The Feds say they will stay out, then come rushing in. “Colombian cartels?” Really, what’s it mean?

From, The Keynote, January / February 1941: “Some of the so-called ‘jazz hounds’ who think that their talents show off best when ‘high’ should take a trip to Eloise Hospital and […]
A great friend of the hemp plant has left us. Peter Lewis, chairman of Progressive Insurance, died on Saturday afternoon at his home in Coconut Grove Florida apparently due to natural causes. He had just celebrated his 80th birthday on November 11. Lewis was probably the country’s most high-profile billionaire backer of drug law reform. […]
