    Cannabis is so much stronger than it was in the sixties?

    Cannabis is so much stronger than it was in the sixties? Short answer is: No, cannabis is not so much stronger than it was in the sixties. How do I know? Easy, I was there then and I’m here now. I started smoking cannabis on April 20th 1968 when I was sixteen. They say that […]

    Dani Girl

    Some Work in Progress There’s always a story. I was sitting in the studio staring at the walls, feeling despondent. There was nothing there. No inspiration – no focus – no purpose.
