By Keoni Grundhauser

Chebahut offers an array of "munchies" just perfectly sweet and strange (captain crunch crispy treats?) enough to satisfy any red-eyed, hungry individual. On 4/20 the Chebahut located on West Elizabeth will be holding PB&J eating contests and other fun events to celebrate a very green holiday.

Weed is sin-sational

By Kendall McElhaney

KendallCollegian-23-EditComing from my hometown in Texas (I know – I got out as soon as I could), weed was never really a public topic of discussion. That’s not to say that we didn’t talk about it — because we did, just in hushed tones in bathroom stalls. We were young, bored and hopped up on Mountain Dew. Weed was a regular adolescent conversation after a night of tipping cows and riding our horses around town. Looking for the nearest saloon to wet some whistles, most would end up at a local What-a-burger, better known colloquially as “Waterburger” or the best place to run into everyone you hated at 3 a.m. on a Friday night. Here is where you could catch the best weed conversations.

For the Collegian‘s first-ever marijuana review, I went out and picked up some of the dankest cannabis Indica that I could find.

Cannabis Indica has more of an effect on the body, where cannabis Sativa is more mind oriented. With Indica strains, one is more likely to feel the body high, and it is best suited for consumption during the night before bed. Sativas are more uplifting, create a more energetic high and are better for use during the day.

Let’s be blunt about 4/20: a look at the annual smokers’ holiday

By Zara DeGroot

IMG_9937In 1971, a group of high school boys in California met at 4:20 p.m. every day after school to look for a farmer’s forgotten plot of marijuana. After getting passed around by the Grateful Dead and the underground music scene through word of mouth, the term 4/20 now references a day of celebration for smokers worldwide.

Amendment 64 was passed in Colorado in 2014, and the unofficial stoners’ holiday has continued. However, marijuana users in Fort Collins disagree on whether 4/20 has lost its appeal since the legalization.
