WARDEN TRACKS... A classic anthem from Bob Marley And The Wailers, from an album that had its 35th anniversary re-release last year.  This tune ties-in with the "social experiment" in Colorado that kicked off the New Year, yesterday.  Click beneath the album graphic to the right, and enjoy a blast of the sweet, sweet "KAYA," from the king of reggae, mon!

POT NOW ON SALE IN COLORADO... Colorado is now the first state in the USA where you can legally buy WEED for recreational use.  There are now 20 states where you can buy GANJA legally, but in 19 of those 20, you still have to have your Doc's Rx because they are still "Medical MARIJUANA Only" states.  The US feds are watching the Colorado KAYA experiment closely, because the HERB is still illegal under federal law.  For some interesting points-of-view, check out some articles and reports hereherehere, or the financial POT perspective here.  Expect Washington state to follow Colorado's lead within six months to a year.Doobius Giganticus
