Issue: September 22, 2011

Good morning!

As most of you probably know, harvest season is upon us once again. So,

what better time to roll out a CN&R Pot Issue than now? We tackle a few

different issues--from cartel grows to dispensaries to last year's raids on

collectives--in this week's Feature package. But look elsewhere, too--in

Chow, I learned how to bake with shake; and Downstrokes are chock full of

marijuana-related news.

In other news: Chicoans brace for the closure of Bidwell Mansion; Passages

Adult Resource Center reaches out to seniors; and much, much more.

Don't forget, there's just one week left to vote for the Best of Chico!

Until next time,

Meredith Graham, managing editor
