The Weed That Helped Merle Haggard Perform Into His Seventies Will Soon Be Available In Colorado

first_imgIf your image of Merle Haggard is the “Okie From Muskogee,” then clearly you didn’t know Merle Haggard in the 2000’s. According to a new feature in Rolling Stone, Haggard not only warmed up to the use of marijuana, but relied on it heavily to tour in the later years of his life.As the story goes, Haggard grew medicinal marijuana on his 280-acre ranch in California, and was particularly fond of sativas. Eyeing the new marijuana market in Colorado, his family had partnered up with Colorado Weed Co. to expand the operation, but unfortunately Haggard passed away on April 9th, 2016. Since then, his family has been working with the Colorado Weed Co. to get Haggard’s weed in distribution.“The sativas kept him going, kept him creative, kept him getting out there and being able to play,” says Colorado Weed Co.’s Michael Smith in the interview. Thus, the new strain – which will be called Merle’s Girls – will soon hit the shops in Colorado. They plan to expand into Washington, Oregon, and California in the coming years.Though Merle Haggard will always be remembered for his music, 420-friendly fans will now have a new way to honor his legacy.last_img read more

Golfito fishermen caught with 2 tons of cocaine show up for appeal

first_imgDrug trafficking suspects Quirós Vásquez, Miranda Vásquez and Quirós Ledezma, during a May 13, 2014 appeal hearing in Golfito, southern Costa Rica. The Tico TimesLast week, we reported on a curious story of three Costa Rican fishermen who were nabbed with almost two tons of cocaine near the southern Pacific port city of Golfito. Then-Public Security Minister Mario Zamora called the arrest “the most important [drug] seizure in years.” But 24 hours later, a Golfito judge had released the three suspects on their own recognizance, setting off a firestorm of criticism on social media networks.Today, the three men, aged 26, 29 and 38 and with the last names Quirós Vásquez, Miranda Vásquez and Quirós Ledezma, showed up in court for an appeal filed by the Golfito Prosecutor’s Office over Judge Jeffrey Mora Sánchez’s previous decision to release them. This time, however, an appeals court handed down six months of preventive detention for all three suspects, citing the severity of the crime – which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence – and the fact that the men are a flight risk, living just 40 minutes from the Panama border.An attorney representing the three men did not allow The Tico Times to speak with them at the hearing. We really wanted to ask them only one question: “Why didn’t you run?” Facebook Comments Related posts:Costa Rica’s 3-pronged strategy scores high against drug trafficking, says Coast Guard chief Airport police arrest Tico with more than a kilo of cocaine Costa Rica takes custody of 3 suspected cocaine smugglers nabbed by US Costa Rica takes down more suspects in cocaine trafficking network run by Italian mafialast_img read more
