This issue of Green Guide, with the $100,000 bong on the cover, is our best one yet. It's full of fantastic reporting by Lester Black and Amber Cortes, and also includes a 4/20 calendar by The Stranger's Things to Do department.
I'm not giving away the secrets of what makes $100,000 bong cost so much here—and why people pay that much for functional glass. You'll have to go pick up the issue.
The article, like the rest in the Green Guide, will go online this Thursday—4/20.
But here's another spread from later in the story:
There's also a handy map of recreational stores:
And pretty photos of weed:
And a piece about using dope to cope with Trump:
And tons of other stuff, including:
• a piece about shopping for weed with senior citizens.

• a piece about credit unions and small banks that solved the cannabis cash crisis.
• a crossword puzzle:
If you consume all your news media digitally, and you just want to wait until all of this is online, that's cool, too. You do you. But if you want to be ahead of everyone else, and if you can stand to be off your phone for one sec, go pick up this week's issue of The Stranger.
Or find Green Guide on its own. It's also distributed as a freestanding title.
