Hemp and the woolly mammoth’s hair piece

By Leland Rucker
It’s no secret that hemp is one of the most misunderstood plants in history. For centuries, it has been used by all kinds of people for all kinds of things — clothing to car construction, bioplastics to building supplies, food to fuel. Though it was grown by the Founding Fathers, was a major crop in the U.S. for many years and doesn’t contain enough THC to get people “high,” it was blacklisted along with marijuana in 1937 and later listed as a Schedule One drug under the Controlled Substances Act in 1970, at least in part because the federal government couldn’t tell the difference between the two plants.

Sweet precision

A morning in the kitchen of Robin Chocolates

By Matt Cortina
Robin Autorino demands perfection. She demands it of herself, of the employees in her Longmont chocolate shop and of the ingredients she uses to make her award-winning chocolates. She demands it, too, of her chocolate-squirting robot, Frédéric. Fred is a magnificent beast, about the size and design of a commercial-grade frozen yogurt machine. In 10 minutes, he melts hard chocolate feves — ovals of various percents and types of chocolate — into a silky, liquid stream. The stream pools into a slowly rotating basin, where it eventually works its way to the bottom of the tun, is piped up to the top and entered back into the endless stream.

Authentic import

Chez Thuy continues to bring big, interesting flavor to Boulder

Men ruin everything

Yes, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ is as good as you’ve heard%u2028

By Ryan Syrek
This isn’t to say that the film isn’t speaking volumes. Hell, it’s not even speaking: it’s shouting and screaming over a wailing guitar riff. The brides scrawl graffiti in the dungeon they escaped, reading “We are not things” and “Who killed the world?” The latter has a clear answer: Dudes.
