Same Same

Same Same

On its website, San Francisco-based Pax Labs, a pioneer of cannabis vaping products, has devoted a page to explaining the differences between the indica and sativa types of cannabis. Indicas, it says, “are typically relaxing and calming strains” that “activate the parasympathetic response, which can…

Strange Synth

Strange Synth

Some people give old clothes to the Salvation Army. I donate FM synthesis techniques to the building where I came from. I recently unearthed a few boxes of old music textbooks from college that I hadn’t opened in 20 years. Rifling through them felt like…

Joint Efforts

Joint Efforts

In 2010, I launched a cannabis blog for Slate’s business-news site, unfortunately called The Big Money. It was named after a 1936 novel by the then-socialist writer John Dos Passos, but nobody got the reference and the name just seemed dumb. Sadly, Slate shut down…

Sin Tax

Sin Tax

In fighting for the passage of Proposition 64 in 2016, advocates of legal cannabis issued no warnings about how overtaxation could stifle the legal industry’s prospects. In fact, they did the precise opposite, telling voters and government officials that cannabis would result in a windfall…

Riot Reputation

Riot Reputation

As a teenager, when I snuck into a botched King Diamond show in the same building where the Fats Domino riot happened, I was too young to care about history. With all the current yakking about plaques, landmarks, local music roots and such, one marker…

Ludicrous

Ludicrous

The Fake War

The Fake War

Most state legislators, even some of the pot-skeptical ones, understand that criminal enforcement will never help reduce the illicit market’s share. But some do not. Or they pretend they do not. Having lost the war against weed with the passage of Proposition 64 in 2016,…

Cannabis and Covid

Cannabis and Covid

In the weeks after lockdowns began as Covid-19 took hold in the United States, a bunch of crazies and charlatans began declaring that cannabis could “cure” Covid. I wrote a cover story about them for the East Bay Express in May 2020. Some were just…

Bodies in Motion

Bodies in Motion

Inertia. In physics, it’s the resistance an object has to a change in its state of motion. In real life, it’s a phenomenon many working humans feel in their bones. Stiff and sore from hours hunched over a desk, they’re too tired to get up…
