Cannabis Time Capsule: Man sells bunk weed, ounces go for $1

colorado cannabis time capsule-thumb-205.jpg
In digging up old articles on cannabis in Colorado, we've come across a few stories that didn't warrant entire posts of their own. But they add up to something interesting, so we've compiled them for this week's edition of Colorado Cannabis Time Capsule.

The first comes from the Camp Hale Ski-zette, which was the base alternative newspaper for the 10th Mountain Division base in Eagle County, where soldiers learned mountaineering and skiing.

The clip was part of the Home Town News section and stems from Baltimore:

What an asshole.

The next, from the Douglas County Record-Journal in 1933, details the breakup of a Longmont "dope ring" run by Mexicans. Add it to the list of headlines that demonized not only the drug but a nationality in the process.

Here's another news brief from the Douglas County Record-Journal, this time from 1935. It's a bit blurry, but it talks about arrests in Trinidad. According to the reporter, an ounce of herb at the time sold for a dollar.

And finally, we think we may have found the original "Ask a Stoner" in this "Ask Anything" column from the Record-Journal in 1941. Check out question ten:

 *** Colorado marijuana mogul Tripp Keber arrested for pot possession in Alabama ***

The Colorado man behind one of the nation's largest medical-marijuana products companies won't be able to use marijuana for two years, after he was arrested for possession in Alabama.

Vincent "Tripp" Keber, who is the managing director of the company that makes the Dixie Elixirs line of marijuana-infused products, pleaded guilty last month to misdemeanor marijuana possession in Baldwin County, Ala. A second charge of marijuana possession was dismissed as part of the deal.

As part of the deal, Keber must check in with authorities in Alabama daily and submit to random drug tests. If those tests turn up evidence of alcohol consumption or drug use — including marijuana use — Keber could face up to a year in jail, said Martha Simmons, a spokeswoman for the Baldwin County district attorney's office.

Deputies arrested Keber on May 18 after he was found in possession of a small amount of concentrated marijuana while entering the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala., said Baldwin County Sheriff's Maj. Anthony Lowery. Arrest documents show Keber was also initially held on suspicion of felony possession of cocaine, though Callaway said deputies mistook a marijuana concentrate for cocaine. Keber denies possessing cocaine, and Keber was charged only with marijuana possession.

Dixie Elixirs makes an array of marijuana-infused oils, sweets and drinks. Keber said he reported the charges to Colorado's Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division and said he does not believe they will have an impact on the company's license.

@Juan_Leg ... so you blame the Alcohol for taking your leg? ... as they should blame marijuana for the deaths of those in Philadelphia.

@Juan_Leg"Do you not partake in anything ?"

While operating a crane, or walking next to railroad tracks ? ... not so much.
