HIGH TIMES Partners with Mars One To Study Pot in Space

HIGH TIMES has announced plans to participate in the controversial space colonization project Mars One. The Dutch non-profit company Mars One, led by CEO Bas Lansdorp, plans to establish a human settlement on Mars by 2027. The company began the painstaking process of evaluating thousands of applicants in 2013 and has now narrowed the number of potential Martian settlers down to 100. This week, HIGH TIMES confirmed that senior cultivation editor Danny Danko is one of the 100 applicants selected to participate in the program.

According to Mars One spokesperson Janice Unero, “Mr. Danko was selected primarily for his knowledge of cannabis cultivation. We hope to study the effects of cannabis on human settlers in such a unique environment.”

Ms. Unero added that the company believes cannabis will provide much needed stress relief and help with motion sickness during the grueling, seven-month journey to the Red Planet.
