Hurricane Irene, Meet Biological Weapons Facility.

There are some very good reasons to hope the current predictions of Hurricane Irene weakening are true.

One of these is the fact that a U.S. government biological weapons facility, Plum Island, is in the direct path of the storm.

Note that this disquieting fact has so far escaped the attention of our mainstream media.

Washington Farmer's Market: Power To The Patients

Photo by Tony Wells

I'm convinced this is the future of medical marijuana access.

I love the Washington Farmer's Market, and what a beautiful place to hold it on the day this was filmed -- Hoodsport is a gorgeous little town.

The type of patient empowerment represented by farmer's markets like this is a beautiful thing.

Big kudos to the incredible Sarena Haskins for bringing safe access to patients who would otherwise suffer. Thanks to the rockin' Tony Wells for the video!

This Bong Hit's For You, China.

The People's Republic of China had never really done anything for me until this week.

But then, man oh man, did they make up for lost time!

They refused to do the binding on my upcoming cannabis book, The Little Black Book of Marijuana, thus starting a tsunami of publicity that money couldn't have bought for the tome.

Thank you, China!
