partment, District Attorney, Public Health Department, Sonoma
County Medical Association to develop guidelines for cultivating
and using medical cannabis. One of the more important services

Seattle Hemp Fest 2006

e arrived Friday, just in time to check in and
hook up with Jack (Mr. Herer). From there
we went to the VIP welcome party; it was
held on a beautiful old steam boat. As we met and
greeted all of our old friends and made new ones, we
are thankful for this great event. It is the largest hemp/
marijuana gathering in the world and it would not be
possible were it not for all the wonderful volunteers.
Jack and
Seattle lost one of the best this year, as we lost James,
Eddy and
one of the greatest men I had the privilege of know- Jack’s

were hundreds of vendors spread out over a half mile stroll. It is a

three stages with speakers and nonstop music. That night we were
the guests of Apothecary Travel who had tickets for the Seattle Can-

The samples were excellent. I really liked the Plum Haze,

Sunday dawned another beautiful and sunny day in Seattle.
It was filled with more music, knowledge and love than the day
before. Our dear friend, Steve Kubby, announced he was running
for President of the good old USA. We wish him luck. We must

Lynnette Shaw for Lieutenant Governor of California

For years, the sick and terminally ill have been arrested, jailed and imprisoned for taking the medication
of their choice. Even doctors, who have written recommendations for alternative medical herbs, have
suffered the same fate. As Lieutenant Governor, I will stop this travesty. As a caregiver for over 13
years, I will work to stop this practice to incarcerate the ill and the dying.
Medical cannabis was approved by the voters in 1996 and I promise to stop the federal government
from overstepping their powers to interfere in medical choice. I will seek complete access to medicinal
herbs which has relieved the suffering of thousands.

“…government should be a referee and

not a player in society.”
Further, if elected I will promise the use of industrial hemp to help farmers and communities
survive communities survive in tough economic times. I will seek communities surviving in tough
economic times, I will seek environmental reforms to authorize new energy sources, especially those
derived from the oil of hemp seeds. But most of all, I want to ensure that citizens and their rights are not
abused by heartless bureaucrats, unjust laws and heavy-handed state legislators.
It has always been my opinion that government should be a referee and not a player in society. We
need leadership that will foster the right of citizens and their freedom to be left alone. But I cannot do
this alone. I will need your vote if you want me to make sweeping changes in Sacramento.”

Greenkind Product Review by Melrose Sanchez

420 Jars are the finest medicine storage jars we have seen to date.
These jars are made in America with a high-quality, durable glass.
The lids have a plastic gasket seal to protect your medicine’s po-
tency. This tight seal creates an air-vacuum that you’ll hear “pop”
every time you open the jar. 420 Jars come in two styles. The Clas-
sic series is cylindrical much like a traditional apothecary jar while
the Vibe series flares gracefully to a broader base. Both styles are
extremely attractive and each style comes in three different sizes

that hold as little as 1/5 ounce and as much as 1.5 ounces of your
Steven Hager, the founder of the Cannabis Cup, recently
selected 420 Jars as the Official Stash Jar of the 2006 High Times
Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. That means all entries at the Cup
will be displayed in 420 Jars. Also, a limited edition of commemo-
rative jars will be created for event.
With a selection of 22 designs, the jars fit every personality and lifestyle. These are the perfect storage jars for both dispensaries and
patients to protect medication potency. In fact, some dispensaries are now having custom jars made with their name & logo to give away
or sell to their patients, including both Sunset Collective and PCH Collective. So throw out those baggies, put those plastic pill containers
in the archives, it is 420 Jars that keep medicine fresh, potent, and ready to use. Reasonably priced from around $15 - $25, the jars more than
pay for themselves by keeping medicine fresh and at a consistent potency level. Go to or call 1-888-420-5277 for more
details. This really is a “must have” storage container for every patient.

Canna Banana Bread is a product more than worthy of searching out
and trying. It is nothing less than wonderful. The home-baked quality
combined with a tasty, yet subtle, banana flavor makes this medicating
experience a cut above. Unlike many infused foods, Canna-Banana Bread
is not overly sweet, so the flavor simply augments the appealing bread-
like texture containing no nuts. One taste tells that the finest ingredients
and highest quality medication is used to create this excellent ingestible.
The dosage is so consistent that a 1/2 inch slice produced the same
level of medication that could easily be controlled according to need.
The loaf with proper refrigeration has a long shelf-life and serves 8-12
depending on serving size. Also, it is important to note that the bread is
reasonably priced. Generally, because of calorie and fat content, I shy
away from pastries, cookies and breads as a means of medicating. As a

The Medi-Scope is a product no patient should be without. This handy, inexpensive instrument is a
magnifying glass designed especially for medication inspection. All medication needs to be clean
and free of mold, fungus, insects (dead or alive) and have no musty-smell. Patients need to inspect
before they ingest. Certain mold can be deadly if eaten. Properly dried medication poses no threat,
These days more dispensaries are providing magnification inspection for patients. But patients need to protect themselves by inspecting
every medication purchase. As with all things — it is buyer beware. Protect your medication dollars by being sure your medicine is all you
expect it to be. Check out or call 800-756-3305

The ladies love Sean Paul. ince its humble beginnings 23-years-
ago, Reggae on the River has become a
global phenomenon. Reggae and World
musicians from all over the globe dream of
performing at Northern California’s legendary
Reggae festival, the first of its kind and the
largest in the country. The 3-day festival is like
summer camp with headlining musicians, DJ’s,
swimming in the river, camping out, and no
counselors to take away your medication.
