A sane, sensible approach to public cannabis consumption

By Leland Rucker
One of the conundrums surrounding the implementation of Amendment 64 is that while you can buy marijuana in Colorado, there aren’t many places where you can legally use it in a social setting. Citizens are pretty much limited to their homes or a friend’s house or backyard. For a tourist, it’s even more vexing: you’re often stuck with using it in your hotel room, not the most attractive place to enjoy the benefits of either cannabis or Colorado.

My boyfriend of six months tied me up for the first time a month ago. He didn’t know what he was doing, and I didn’t get turned on because it hurt.

How locavores will destroy the world

By Ari LeVaux
In the last 20 years, the amount of local foods consumed in the American diet has tripled, according to USDA, and now comprises two percent of food consumed in the U.S. As with anything that’s popular, some have seen fit to tear it down.

A good bite

Murphy’s Tap House brings its menu and dozens of local taps to Louisville

By Matt Cortina
