The Bespoke High Is the Future of Marijuana
I’d been traveling for work—to Europe then to Asia then to Europe again while pinging back and forth from L.A. to New York. For months my carryon contained the sneakers that I didn’t use in the hotel gyms I never visited. I was exhausted to the brink of tears since previous to this spate of travel. I had a schedule so rote I could give myself jetlag by sliding lunch up half an hour.
I’d gone straight to the weed store from LAX—ragged—trundling my suitcase past the spangly Turkish restaurant with the outline of a hookah on the sign, ducking into the alleyway with the Thai massage parlor on one end and my dispensary on the other. On the inside the shop looks like a cross between an Apple flagship and a Danish lighting boutique except there’s a security guard with a gun and a brown-haired girl who checks your ID and card and buzzes you through.
Northern Lights (Indica)
Northern Lights is renowned for its ability to be grown very easily. The strain's reputation also comes from the fact that it has won competitions such as the Cannabis Cup. The #5 strain was first entered into competition 1989 when several seeds were mailed from the U.S.A. to Amsterdam. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in 1989, 1998, and again in 2009. It is a cross of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.

In New Challenge to Madrid, Catalonia Legalizes Cannabis
Spain’s restive northeastern region of Catalonia and especially its freewheeling capital Barcelona have, over the past years, come to rival the Netherlands and and Amsterdam as a European cannabis hub. Smokers’ clubs have proliferated, tolerated (and regulated) by the authorities.
Members of registered Cannabis Social Clubs will now be free to cultivate, distribute and consume the herb. Under the law passed by the regional parliament, clubs will be permitted to grow enough to supply their members—60 grams per month for adults 21 and over, and 20 grams per month for those between 18 and 21.
The Cannabis Associations Law (Ley de Asociaciones Cánnabicas) was passed following a long activist campaign.
