Humboldt Homework These local writers will make you feel like a Humboldter before you ar- rive:


Kym Kemp’s Redheaded Blackbelt is the canna-cognosenti’s must-read. News, analysis, gorgeous local fl ora and fauna photography, and real SoHum marijuana workers feeding the blog’s comments. kymk.word- press.com


Sharon Letts’ Behind the Curtain is a fi ctionalized, serialized look at ev- eryday lives of NoHum cannabis growers, their families, friends—like Tales of the City in Humboldt County. arcataeye.com.


Mikal Jakubal’s One Good Year is both a blog and a promo for his shot- but-unedited documentary of the same name. Set in the year leading up to Prop. 19’s defeat, stories follow four mom-and-pop SoHum growers for that mythical “one good year” of growing before allegedly retiring. onegoodyear.com


Postcard from the Future As deadline descends like couchlock indica demanding this story be put to bed, I hear hazy but hopeful Humboldt canna-tourism plans: a reality TV medical marijuana farm and campground in Carlotta; a Prop. 215 hotel resort near Orick; and a spa in Arcata that promises massages with canna oils and lotions for medical marijuana users who bring their own.


Pipe dreams, or how you’ll spend your Cannabis Country Vacation in 2012?
