Getting stoned with Benjamin King Anders

Last month Colorado made history by becoming the first state where residents voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use. In honor of this momentous occasion -- and while the specific legalities are being ironed out with the feds -- Backbeat, our music blog, decided to catch up with various members of the music community, the known imbibers, to get their thoughts on the issue. And now Show and Tell has decided to get in on the act. To kick things off, we're featuring local jeweler/glass collector Benjamin King Anders, who's shared his thoughts on Amendment 64 and how the new law will affect the community at large.
