Pot Town

Pot Town

At the edge of California's Mojave Desert, you may soon find the country's first cannabis-focused community
A few weeks ago in this column, we introduced you to the concept of cannabis tourism and how it's already taken off in places like Seattle. In the Emerald City, there's everything from vaporizer rentals for out-of-towners to guided tours of producers, processors and retail shops.

At Last?

A pair of proposed bills aim to end national cannabis prohibition
The Trump Administration's Justice Department has made it clear that they are no fans of marijuana, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has indicated that the Justice Department may go after states that have legalized either recreational or medical cannabis use. With this threat looming, two lawmakers introduced legislation in the past two weeks to prevent a step backward in federal cannabis policy.

Crunching the Numbers

Let's take a look at marijuana data in Spokane
The cannabis industry is big business... perhaps even bigger business than you realize. You may have seen a full parking lot at your local marijuana retailer and figured that they must be doing brisk business, and that strong, skunky scent you pick up while driving down the freeway gives you an idea that somebody is growing a hell of a lot of pot somewhere nearby, but you might not know how to quantify all of this.

Hot on the Market

A look at a few new cannabis products worth trying
One of the joys of shopping for cannabis products: There continues to be countless new items for sale, many from companies who've just hopped into the market. From flowers to edibles to devices, it seems there's always something new when you pop into a shop.

Green Vacations

Inside the creative world of canna-tourism
One of the often-overlooked aspects resulting from the end of cannabis prohibition in Washington is the way in which industries that are not directly involved with recreational weed benefit from the new laws. For example, there's the strip mall owner who leases to the startup retailer, or the farmer who sells off land to the producer.

Summer Reading

Become a whiz of the cannabis biz with these books
Before this summer slips away like all the ones before it, remember to take in some summer reading. It's easy, relatively cheap, and you can do it while sitting on the beach or in the back yard... perhaps enjoying a gentle indica buzz along with the sunshine.

Glass Man

At Glass Gods, Tim Bohr combines glass and fire to create gorgeous pipes
A thick gout of blue-white fire jets out of a blowtorch, licking around the glass tube. As the tube spins around and around in the lathe, it glows orange with molten heat.

Banana Ice Cream Popsicles

Put the green in the coconut, and mix it all together
You've never made edibles before? Me neither.

Turn it Up, Man!

Listening while stoned — weed-friendly albums and bands
While catching a buzz obviously isn't necessary for enjoying tunes, sometimes it does enhance the sounds coming through your headphones. Some artists — the Bob Marleys, Grateful Deads and Snoop Doggs of the world — are uniquely qualified to provide the soundtrack to a quality smoking session.

Summertime Boosts

Looking to enhance your outdoor adventures this summer? We've got you covered
Whether you're lounging beside a lake or grilling brats in your own backyard during the dog days of August, it's practically a rule that you have a cold can of beer in one hand while you do it. But if you're looking to trade in that cooler full of PBRs for something a little less filling (and more mind-altering), we've sniffed out some of the best cannabis strains to make your outdoor activities a lot more exciting this summer.

Puff Puff Passed

Everything you need to know about changes to weed laws in Washington and Spokane
THE LOCAL Spokane City Councilmember Mike Fagan is calling "shenanigans."

A Regional Classic

Seattle's Hempfest might be "king of the protestivals"
It's only a matter of time until Spokane gets on the bandwagon with its own regional cannabis festival (actually, there's a new, large-scale event this year called the King Cannabis Expo, Sept. 29-30 at the Spokane Convention Center), but for now you'll want to plan a trip later this summer across the state to get in your fix of marijuana festivities. In the heart of the Emerald City, Hempfest proclaims itself the "undisputed 'King of Protestivals' and the largest cannabis convocation in the world."

Meet Your Budtender

Q&A with Paul Faulkner, supervisor of Cinder's new downtown pot shop
INLANDER: How long have you been a budtender? FAULKNER: I started with Cinder about 4/20 of 2016.

Sin City Goes Green

Nevada's recreational cannabis market has gone live — here's how it compares to Washington
You'd think that Nevada, a state that's home to Las Vegas, where both drinking on the street and prostitution are legal, would be cool with a little weed. Well, that hasn't historically been the case for the state, which had some harsh cannabis laws on the books for years.

Sip Over Smoke

A look at some of the cannabis-infused beverages on the market
The way that retailers have displayed their cannabis product since stores opened three years ago varies greatly. Some places just had a menu and the product in a back room.

Test Anxiety

Attitudes about cannabis have shifted, but when it comes to the workplace, change has been slower

Money from the marijuana taxes is beginning to trickle down from the state to local cities

Seeds of 
Change?

Seeds of Change?

Unlike its neighbors to the west, Idaho has resisted loosening its cannabis laws. Could that be changing?

Too Much 
Green

Too Much Green

The lack of banking services has forced pot transactions to be handled with cash, and that can be a problem
