Getting stoned with Wheelchair Sports Camp

A week ago today, our homeland, the fine state of Colorado, made history by voting to legalize marijuana for recreational use. In honor of this momentous occasion -- and while the specific legalities are being ironed out with the feds -- we thought we'd take a few minutes to catch up with various members of our musical community, the known imbibers, and get their thoughts on the whole issue. Shortly after one of their recent gigs, we retired to the alley with members of Wheelchair Sports Camp to smoke a joint and talk about their first time getting high, getting busted in Texas and why Colorado's potheads are more zealous than Washington's. Predictably, our conversation was full of passion and forgetfulness.
