Driving Too High

Driving Too High

Why the state of Washington needs to explore alternatives to its current DUI testing
In recent weeks, the Green Zone has examined potency studies conducted for the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, as well the misnomer of likening THC and THCA levels to percentages of alcohol by volume. Another major concern with the pairing of alcohol and cannabis as recreational drugs involves discerning impairment.

'Hard to Get'

Teenage pot use hits a 20-year low
A constant argument for pot prohibition is the concern that recreational weed stores will mean easier access for teenagers. That's among the reasons why Washington's law requires the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) to perform regular cost-benefit analysis of legalization in relation to aforementioned adolescent usage, along with prenatal effects and impaired driving.

Weed on Wheels

Will legal cannabis delivery be the next big thing in Washington state?
You settle in after a hard day's work. Or maybe you're just waking up — whatever you do.

Getting Our Cut

Marijuana tax revenue is skyrocketing — but while the state is raking in more, Washington cities aren't seeing the gains
In a heavily attended Spokane City Council forum about homelessness in late September, James Earl, a self-described avid cannabis smoker in an Eastern Washington University sweatshirt, walks up to the podium and proposes his idea, having to do with the tax revenue raised from pot sales. "I feel we are not utilizing that pot of money," Earl says.

Naughty and Nice

What to buy for those 420-friendly folks on your shopping list
HANDY HOOKAHS It's a common complaint: Smoking out of a hookah is great, but what good are they for a stoner on the go?

Couching Hard

Options abound when a remote control meets recreational cannabis
Taste in television is subjective, of course, and the way different people react to taking a bong hit or munching a weed-laced brownie is likewise highly individualized. Even so, one thing most recreational cannabis users can agree on is how couch- and TV-binge-friendly their intoxicant of choice is. The modern television landscape is littered with good pot-y humor (Broad City, The Good Place) and stoner-ific sci-fi (The Orville, the new Star Trek: Discovery series).

Chef Freak's "Cannabread" Cookies

Cannabis-infused gingerbread cookies from one of the Two Ginger Chefs
Every few months, Chef Freak (aka Kyle Bowlby, pictured) and his cooking partner Matt Johnson put on a cannabis-infused, multicourse smorgasbord through their catering company, Two Ginger Chefs (named for their red beards). When he cooks with weed, Chef Freak says he uses anything from butters and oils infused with cannabis to tinctures.

'Just a Beautiful Thing to See'

Q&A with Wayne Guthrie, budtender and purchasing manager for the Hidden Joint in northeast Spokane
INLANDER: How old are you? GUTHRIE: I am 23.

Numbers Can Lie

Why THC and THCA percentages may not be the best judge of a strain's character
It's natural for consumers to look for the best bang for their buck when they're in the marketplace. Valuable cash is on the line when we're talking about a retail cannabis industry that at times had higher sales than milk, bread and wine in grocery stores during the past year.

Weed, the People

The spotlight is on all aspects of marijuana at Spokane's King Cannabis Expo
Cannabis takes over the Spokane Convention Center this Friday and Saturday for the second annual King Cannabis Expo. The seed-to-sale event offers experiences for enthusiasts and entrepreneurs alike, with event passes, booths, seminars and access to a networking lounge.

Hot Off the Press

A new Spokane-based manufacturing business wants to change how cannabis is processed
In an unassuming office building, stashed away on Market Street in North Spokane, a new company is taking root. Sesh-Technologies Manufacturing (STM) — headquartered in Spokane, with a second location in Denver — is making its mark on the cannabis technology market, offering a commercial-grade "rosin" press that extracts cannabis concentrates simply through heat and pressure.

Indica vs. Sativa vs. Reality

Demystifying some marijuana terminology; it's all about the cannabinoids and terpenes
There's a foundational error in how recreational stores categorize and cannabis consumers discern their bud. The misnomer is found in the faulty fork in the road made by novices and marijuana maestros alike: "Indica, sativa or hybrid?"

The Straight Dope

Let's put some cannabis-related myths to the test
Maybe it was all those years of cannabis culture existing largely underground that led to the bevy of tall tales and myths associated with the substance. Or maybe people were just super high when they came up with some of these.

TV Strains

Netflix came up with an amazing promotion for its terrible new cannabis-focused sitcom
Netflix is among the world's biggest entertainment companies, and apparently the streaming media and video-on-demand giant isn't afraid to dip its toes into the legal marijuana realm. Believe it or not, Netflix actually released a collection of cannabis strains in coordination with a California medical dispensary.

League of Denial

Former NFL greats are speaking out about the need to allow cannabis use for players; will the league listen?
As marijuana legalization has continued to spread across the land, a number of institutions have remained steadfast in their resistance to this trend. One of those institutions has been professional sports, where athletes are frequently tested for not just performance-enhancing drugs, but also cannabis and other recreational substances.
