Emerald Cup Marijuana Competition Returns To Mendo Saturday

The fabled Emerald Cup is returning to the legendary Mendocino spiritual sanctum, Area 101, this Saturday. As the blurb says, "Proclaimed by Rolling Stone Magazine,' as the premiere competition in America.'" And they're not kidding.
 
The Emerald Cup, "the world's only outdoor organic cannabis competition," first lit up on the scene almost a decade ago, with the initial competition bringing in 22 entrees to be judged. Last year, the entries almost reached 150. 
 
But that's just pot talk. What's cool about the Emerald Cup? It is so much more than your average medical cannabis bake-off.

Medical Marijuana Moguls: No Pot for Recreational Purposes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, December, 6th 2011 by THCFinder
Leading up to the promotion of their new Discovery Channel reality show, Weed Wars, brothers Steven and Andrew DeAngelo appeared on the Dylan Ratigan Show (on the left-leaning MSNBC) and on The O’Reilly Factor (on the right-leaning FOX News Channel).  Steven and Andrew run the world’s largest cannabis dispensary, Harborside Health Center, serving over 98,000 patients and grossing in excess of $20 million annually.
 
First, Dylan Ratigan asks Steven whether he would be “presumptuous in suggesting that you guys would be in favor of legalization?”
 
Steven DeAngelo: “Yes, you would. I don’t believe that any psychoactive substance should be used for recreation.“
 
Hmm.  That sounds like a problematic stance in a society that recognizes the recreational use of the psychoactive substance called “wine”.  So is all wine use “wellness”, now, too?  Do we all need to tell our doctor we’re using red wine for its anti-oxidant benefits for healthy hearts, when, really, we just want a light after-dinner buzz?  Do we need to repeal the 21st Amendment and go back to “medical whiskey” prescriptions?
 
Speaking of wine (hat-tip to Cannabis Warrior), California’s Steve Kubby is promoting the “Regulate Marijuana Like Wine” initiative in California.  He asked Steve DeAngelo about it while backstage at Seattle Hempfest in August:

Steven DeAngelo: “Wine and cannabis… you know, I support any effort to change the cannabis laws that’s going to get the people who are in prison out of there, and if we can do it by repeal, great, if we can do it with a wine analogy, great.”
 
So… uh… you do support comparing cannabis to wine, a psychoactive substance, all of which you believe should not be used recreationally, but only for “health and wellness”?  I’m confused… does this mean wine should be treated like medical marijuana or that marijuana should be treated as wine and both require a doctor?
 
Next on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly pushes the brothers on the medical aspect of California’s Prop 215, with his familiar bloviating about his “undercover report” that showed how easy it is to get a medical marijuana recommendation.  He acknowledges Steven’s degenerative disc disease and Andrew’s glaucoma as serious ailments in need of cannabis treatment, but points out that cannabis in California can be recommended for anxiety and that it is ludicrously easy to find a doctor who will find you anxious enough to need a weed card.  O’Reilly dangles the fish-hook of “isn’t this quasi-legalization?” and Andrew takes the bait (cue video to 3:35):
 
Andrew DeAngelo: “We will say right here on this show, Bill, that we do not support the legalization of cannabis for recreational purposes.“
