Bill Shehan is the co-founder, publisher, and a writer for the award winning Vegas Cannabis and Tahoe Cannabis Magazines.
Well known in the cannabis industry and Nevada cannabis scene, Bill is two people in one. His heart is a clumsy hero, and his brain is a dark comedian. But one thing is for sure, Bill is all wild west and a fixture here in Las Vegas. Bill’s presence in the room is like having a Viking who is about to go berserk coming at you. There’s one thing everyone can say about Wild B...
They say there’s never been a better time to get into the cannabis industry. With more and more states legalizing cannabis use and with a new proposed bill that will federally decriminalize cannabis, it appears a new gold rush is upon us. If so, why are so many cannabis businesses being pushed out and returning to the black market?
Ask any skateboarder if they’ve ever had painful injuries, and the answer is going to be an emphatic “DUH!” Matt Miller is no different. For over 10 years, Matt has been skateboarding professionally; now in his thirties, the pain of falling down from mastering a trick has caught up with him. Luckily, thanks to a life-long good friend turned business partner, Miller is healing his injuries with CBD.
Enduring bruising, inflammation and fractures on a weekly basis, Miller needed a stronger produ...
"Oh, the A**holes You'll Meet!" is a comic book poetry-guide to life that will make you giggle, nod your head and have you mumbling, mmhmm, as you read through each page.
Do you have a relentless A**hole in your life? Or do you want to guide someone special in your life from becoming an A**hole? Writer Shwa Laytart originally wrote this poignant, parody poem for his daughter when ...
Vegas-vacation-repeat-offenders and locals may need a little more surge to get them out and about. An affordable ticket price is also a plus. Those ready for some seriously strange and soulful seduction need to dip into the Erotic Heritage Museum on a Thursday or Friday night to join in the circus that is the Tuesday & Cyrus Present Freak Show. A vaudeville show on LSD where the audience is part of the intimate trip, it’s overflowing with comedy and just the right amount of disconcertion.
We shouldn’t be surprised that the journal Vegetation History & Archaeobotany recently published a study revealing cannabis was first used on the northeastern Tibetan Plateau. It should also come as no surprise that the guy who made it so popular was named Bud. Bud went by many names; Gautama, Shakyamuni, Siddhartha, and Buddha.
In 2016, Maddie Saglibene was considering moving to Las Vegas during the YES on 2 cannabis adult use campaign. She happened to meet Mikel Weisser, a representative from NORML, before the move.
Suzanne Galal’s band Suzanimal is tickling our minds with her EP release of Body.
Suzanimal’s sultry sound adds to a plethora of soulful funk that has made the San Francisco Bay Area one of the most musically delicious destinations on the planet. If Suzanimal’s EP Body is a sample of what is to come, Galal is about to join the ranks of the solid gold sounds that have been defined for decades by artists in the Bay Area.
Body is music that makes you want to move your body in all the right ways ...
It was early 2014, a roller derby friend asked me out on a real date to go see a band that I also loved. It was our first date. We showed up early to see the band Diego’s Umbrella. That’s when we discovered the opening band and they blew us away. We fell in love with the music then, and each other the following year, so we spent six months trying to book Con Brio for our wedding.
Con Brio pulls together every piece of the puzzle and produces a sound that’s tight and takes flight. The pilot Zi...
“I look at the root system as though it were made of yarn.” - Diana Scherer
Being in the fashion industry for twelve years, working with artisans in Peru who spin yarns, hand knit and finish garments with intricate patterns and styles, I know how much time and energy it takes to make each artistic piece of fashion we wear.
