August 2018

August is the time of year when the heat of July has dissipated, and the humid rains of June are but a distant speck in the rear-view mirror. Everything is better in August -- the fruit is extra juicy, vegetables are crisp. For many, August is their last summer “hoo-rah” of the year. So before we buckle down and head back to the hill for the long season, we’re getting lively this month with the Entertainment Issue. To those affected by the recent wildfires, our thoughts are with you. Stay strong, but more importantly, stay safe. We are all sending positive vibes your way.

We sat down with Grammy award-winner and cannabis hero Tommy Chong, to get his take on life, friends and his path to success in the entertainment industry. He and his once long-time partner, Cheech Marin, have contributed to cannabis, entertainment and much more for over 40 years. Learn more about Chong’s story.
