An Uber for weed: the start-up that's totally dope

“Uber for weed”: now that's an elevator pitch. Concise, contemporary, cool... If I had a few million quid stashed behind the sofa, that’s a start-up I’d invest in. An online business that’s not dependent on advertising! A user-base so stewed they’ll pay a premium to avoid crossing the street!

Except, of course, such an investment made here in Britain would bring the boys in blue round to your premises faster than you could say, “I can’t be around people right now. Are my eyes red? I’m starving.”

Cannabis Cup Highlights Marijuana's Latest Products, Policy Developments

As legalization churns along, numerous issues are slowly but surely being addressed.

With 420 approaching, it's time for our annual reminder: Don't do anything that might bring shame to Denver, Colorado, or marijuana legalization in general.

This weekend's Cannabis Cup, a trade show for those in, or interested in, the bud industry, is doing its part to keep the jackassery to a minimum by disallowing and sales or giveaways of weed-related intoxicants. This should put it in stark contrast to the Great American Beer Festival, which every October floods our downtown streets with loopy, pretzel-necklaced nimrods.

Where Do Your Parents Buy Their Weed?

You didn't think baby-boomers had stopped smoking, did you?

The stigma that has long hung over marijuana in this country is slowly being Febrezed away. Americans have quietly relaxed their attitudes toward pot as more people have gained access for legal, recreational use. Weed is a cash crop in Colorado and Washington, just like corn or hay. In the places where it hasn’t been legalized or decriminalized—perhaps your fair state is next!—Americans appear far more concerned about crucial issues like education and inequality than someone sparking a joint in their backyard.

Evergreen Nursery space becomes Ambary Gardens indoor hemp grow

KITTREDGE – An Evergreen resident is bringing a new business to the area: hemp farming.

Brady Bell is operating Ambary Gardens out of the old Evergreen Nursery at 26479 Highway 74 in Kittredge, with the help of owner Steve Cohen. The greenhouses there will be used to grow medical-grade hemp plants for cultivation of cannabidiol, or CBD oil, an extract being used to treat a number of chronic illnesses.

The business will not be a retail operation open to the public, but Bell said they plan to do plenty of outreach to educate the community about what they are doing and why.

“We’re trying to raise awareness and bridge the gap, sharing the differences between (marijuana) and hemp,” Bell said.
