Jam Cruise gets a little jammed up in Florida

All right, the next time you think of stereotyping jam band connoisseurs as dirty weed smoking hippies, you might want to reconsider. Just after the first of the year, the Jam Cruise, a six-day musical excursion to the Caribbean, with Boulder's Big Gigantic, Bob Weir, Robert Randolph and Galactic, among other was reportedly raided by the feds -- before it had even set sail. Drugs were seized. But it wasn't just wacky tabacky. No sir! There were also ecstasy, LSD and mushrooms confiscations. No word yet on the charges, but the unfortunate imbibers were detained and ended up missing the cruise. Talk about a buzz kill.
