    Default American Weed (program) Boulder, CO

    Just saw a commercial on the National Geographic Channel for a show called "American Weed." It's airing on Wednesday, 9 pm ET...and this episode is in Boulder.

    Let's see if I can find something online.

    Here is a NG page with the schedule.

    http://channel.nationalgeographic.co...rce=NavNGCHome

    You have to put in the date for Wednesday, which is April 18, apparently, but here is the listing for two episodes, both in Colorado. The commercial I saw was for the 9 PM one and it mentioned Boulder.

    09:00 PM to 10:00 PM American Weed: Mile High Showdown: 4/20 or Bust
    As a cult holiday for marijuana, April 20th is the buzz in Colorado. Members of the De Noue family put their resources toward turning their failing business around , and 64-year-old cancer patient Anne Marie finds herself in the middle of her towns fight to ban her green medicine.

    10:00 PM to 11:00 PM American Weed: Mile High Showdown: Banned and Busted
    While people like pink-mohawked cancer patient Josh Belt use medical marijuana to deal with their health problems, cannabis also proves controversial as an upcoming vote threatens to shut down the only dispensary in the town of Castle Rock, Colorado, and North Boulder Wellness Centers manager Alex Douglas, fed up with his employers, decides to quit and move to Aspen.
    I had no idea Colorado had legal medical pot. But then, I'm not up on the latest in such things.

    "University of Colorado Law Professor Paul Campos declared the letter a 'reckless exoneration.' He went on to state, 'Everyone knows that relative immunity from criminal conviction is something money can buy.
    Apparently another thing it can buy is an apology for even being suspected of a crime you probably already would have been convicted of committing if you happened to be poor.'"

    Just wanted to bump this in case anyone is interested. In the commercial I saw last week, they actually mentioned Boulder. I got the impression the pot store that's "failing" is in Boulder.

    I'm thinking it might be interesting, giving insight into why the good citizens of Boulder have never seemed to much care that they had 2 DAs who helped a child killer get away with it. Maybe they're against LE in principle or something--that certainly would explain how Alex Hunter stayed in office so long.

    I'll try to watch it, if I don't forget...something I too often do with TV now as most of it is too pathetic to bother anyway...as I'm sure this show on its face will be, also.

    Question

    Koldkase if it's the program I think it is I saw it one time. It is about 3 or 4 brothers who have a pot farm very high up in the mountains. The youngest brother is the stay at home gardner for the pot plants. He whines all the time because he is stuck there just tending the plants. The other brothers all in their middle 20's to 30's go to the store in town and do all the advertizing that is needed. The youngest took a day off and when he returned one plant died...and all hell broke loose because one plant died. There goes their investment. The youngest just blubbered and cried and complained about not being appreciated.

    I watch a lot of NGO and usually enjoy the programs. This one just isn't my cup of tea. Whiny and yelling folks just get the channel changed as far as I'm concerned.

    I’ve always suspected there was something fishy about Boulder…

    BOULDER, Colo. -- Stinky fish fertilizer and two dozen law-enforcement officers kept pot smokers away from a grassy quad at the University of Colorado on Friday, but a few hundred protesters defied the crackdown and rallied on another field, where some lit up at 4:20 p.m.
    It was a far cry from last year's April 20 pot celebration, when more than 10,000 people gathered on the university's Norlin Quadrangle for the annual ritual of enjoying a smoke and demonstrating for legalizing marijuana.

    That made the university the scene of one of the largest campus celebrations of cannabis in the nation – a reputation that prompted university administrators to take extraordinary steps to stamp out this year's rally.
    They banned unauthorized visitors from campus, and spread smelly fertilizer on the Norlin Quad and declared it off-limits. They even booked Haitian-born hip-hop star Wyclef Jean for a free concert timed to coincide with the traditional 4:20 p.m. pot gathering.
    Still, they were only partially successful. A few dozen protesters veered off a sidewalk bordering the university on Friday afternoon and marched through campus, holding signs and chanting, "Roll it. Smoke it. Legalize it."
    Others joined in as the marchers made their way through the campus, and after they halted on a grassy field near a science building, the crowd reached 300, with 400 more watching from the perimeter, campus police estimated.
    They counted down the seconds to 4:20 p.m., let out a cheer at zero and then lit up, exhaling a collective cloud of smoke that rose over their heads.
    A few police were on hand, some in SWAT gear, but they made no move to interfere. After about 15 minutes the crowd and the smoke dispersed.
    Jonathan Grell, a sophomore majoring in international affairs, said he joined the rally because it "mocks America's arcane drug laws."

    Ha ha, cynic! You're so funny these days, I'm beginning to wonder whacha been smoking! :balloon: More about that "pot festival": last year's huge turnout was highlighted in this episode of American Weed.

    Zoomama, I actually did watch this episode, or some of it. It wasn't about growers, but about sellers...of the legalized pot kind. It featured a couple of store owners struggling with their businesses for different reasons. Also, I noticed a lot of bloodshot eyeballs....

    The show also featured some people on chemo in two episodes I half saw--they ran them consecutively, and I do feel that's a very legitimate use for pot. Telling people they can't smoke pot who are sick and who benefit from it is just plain wicked to me. Legal drugs used for pain management, anxiety, depression, etc., are potent and clearly addictive, so why the distinction? Not to mention, alcohol and cigarettes, if it comes to that. The money our government spends on chasing and imprisoning people over pot...but I digress....

    Not that I'm advocating smoking pot in general: this Boulder episode featured a young man, around 22 or so, who was clearly a pothead gone wrong. He worked for the "medical marijuana" store. He was just plain silly. Every time he was on, I would think, Poster Boy for not using pot for recreation....

    Since I didn't see the show start to finish...and I might have gotten a bit bored with it and focused on something more interesting, like that beige spot on my wall...I'm not sure what the point of it was.

    EXCEPT...the store owner and employees closed the shop early to attend the 4/20, 2011, POT FESTIVAL ON THE BOULDER CAMPUS. Ha! They aired this program on Wednesday for the first time--April 18th.

    So as the article you posted, cynic, demonstrated, CU and the BPD weren't amused when 10,000 people showed up last year. That's what this program ended with--all those people getting high on the CU campus.

    HAHAHAHAHA!

    Sorry, somehow it just hit my funny bone that Boulder and CU deserved this show very much.

    It’s just the years of looking at this case that have done this to me. I was perfectly normal before.
    Getting back to weed in Boulder, I “found” this picture which might help explain some of “Spacey Lacy's” decisions.

    They do. It also helped explain why Boulder is called “25 square miles surrounded by reality.”

    Oh good grief! Couldn't Mary Lacey come after you for this photo, cynic?
    Is it an original, or did you concoct it?

    Don't worry, Elle. In America we have something called Freedom of Speech, written into our Constitution. Freedom of artistic expression is included in the interpretation of that, according to our U.S. Supreme Court. Since Mary Lacy is a public figure, as well, doing a little "photoshop" on her is nothing more than cynic expressing in an editorial cartoon his comic opinion of her weird and unethical decisions as the elected DA in Boulder.

    America does have an upside occasionally.
