Fear and Loathing in Anchorage: The diaries and confessions of a wannabe pot judge | Marijuana

I’ve never been one to rule myself, as evidenced by the collection of camera parts, mechanical keyboards, and game consoles crammed into pretty much every corner of my office. Hell, my cannabis gadget collection has fed a steady stream of reviews for this magazine.

So when I walked up to the counter at Enlighten Alaska during the store’s early morning opening on August 27th, I couldn’t help myself. I was there to cover the launch of the High Times Cannabis Cup People’s Choice Edition – Alaska, a novel approach to cannabis competitions that gives ordinary people a chance to try their hand at judging.
