Evangelizing Cannabis

Praise the Lord and Pass the Pipe! The past four years, I’ve covered four states and thousands of miles in a state of Divine Intervention, with people suffering from real illness put in front of me like little animals to St. Francis of Assisi.

Photography by Sharon Letts It was as if the local cafe has been lifted out of Garberville and transported to Rome or Paris.

Pot Talk with Emily Hobelmann

We are living in an era of frenzied cannabis branding — people developing ways to market their farms, products and services. But some cannabis farmers intend to stay underground, farming quietly in the hills, moving their product on the market with no fanfare, with no marketing strategies or business plans — just a serious love […]


Incredible Edibles

When her local dispensary couldn’t provide proper dietary edibles, Mariah Crumrine decided to step in and bake them herself. “I make lots of different edible treats for patients with all kinds of different dietary needs,” she said.  “I’m lactose intolerant and my local dispensaries don’t have edibles for patients with different dietary needs, so I […]
