Sen. Rand Paul had another disaster interview with a member of the media today. Watch Sen. Paul walk on an interview with The Guardian just as he was being pressed on his flawed campaign strategy.

"The action starts on Friday, May 1, with a full weekend of activities until we yell, 'Cut' on Sunday, said Cannabis Film Festival organizer Jack Rikess. "Be part of history as we usher in a new era with bright lights, a smoking red carpet and other assorted treats and surprises. The event is open to the public."

I want a shirt that says barred for life from hemp fest for his own amusement. I geuss it's a badge of honor. Only three persons have been barred by their pictures on the gates at the biggest poser/hipster fest in the Pacific Northwest. And I'm the only one not named Steve.

Steve, the video would be a bit more interesting if I had any notion as to what the guy is trying to say. All I got out of it was that there was a piece of legislation that went forward with concerns, and that there was another piece of legislation still in the committee process.

What is the legislation that he is talking about...not the number of the bill, but rather the focus of the legislation? I'm not a Washington staffer, nor do I stay glued to CSpan, so I really don't know what he's talking about. But it sounds important.

In more recent years, the pot market has become more economically downscale, according to the federal government's National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

Story
Introduction
I'm a 52-year-old writer, editor, ex-musician, dreamer, reality catcher, ex-con, husband and father.

I'm the editor of Toke Signals, an independent cannabis blog, and author of The Little Black Book of Marijuana.

I'm also cannabis critic for the Seattle Weekly (one of only two marijuana critics for major newspapers in the U.S.), and I write the national news section of The Northwest Leaf, a print magazine for the medical marijuana industry here in Washington state.

As well, I'm editor of Hemp Newsthe internet's longest running compilation of international news stories about hemp and cannabis.

I ran Toke of the Town, Village Voice Media's site of cannabis news, views, rumor and humor, for its first 3+ years, 2009-2013.

I have three kids, seven tattoos, a criminal record, a terminal disease, and an attitude.

I was born in Alabama and spent the first 38 years of my life there and in Mississippi. In the 1970s and 1980s, I was a drummer in various hard rock bar bands in Alabama and Mississippi.

Since 1985, I've worked for newspapers, ad agencies and magazines. I've also taken inventory, indulged in independent entrepreneurship, run a newspaper route and served time. I've been on the West Coast, L.A. or Seattle, since 1999.
Bragging rights
I get paid to smoke marijuana.
