We Are the Staff of HIGH TIMES, Proponents of Pot and the Counterculture, AUsA
Thanks for having us. We are the staff of HIGH TIMES magazine, infamous for it's pro-legalization stance since 1974, bringers of the hi-res pot centerfold and writers pushing public figures and celebs out of the grow closet for as long as we can remember--which isn't too far back considering all the pot use! Now we're seeing the public opinion overwhelming leaning in favor of medicinal use and full decriminalization, which is a sweet relief.
After doing a Q&A session in r/trees a couple of months ago, the mods of AMA invited us to come back and do it here, where we expect a more diverse range of questions and opinions--which we really look forward to. And what better time than the week of 4/20? We'd have done it Friday, but we'll be a little, uh, preoccupied.
Actually, we'll be in Denver for our second Medical Cannabis Cup in that city, a domestic version of our big yearly Amsterdam event. We've been hitting cities like LA, San Fran and even Detroit. It's a landmark year for the state of Colorado on the marijuana front, and we'll be out with the masses at the 4/20 Rally, which is expected to be huge. If you're in the area or want to be, we encourage you to come out to both the rally and our event (WARNING: SHAMELESS PLUG!), which includes parties with our good friends Reggie Watts, Odd Future and Barrington Levy. You can get tickets here if you're interested, and the promo code 'REDDIT' will get you a 10% discount.
Alright, with the formalities out of the way, please ask us anything! We'll be back at 3 p.m. EST to start answering. In the meantime, here's a quick gallery of images from some of our recent shoots, including our upcoming August cover with Oliver Stone: http://imgur.com/a/oComA
