Spring has sprung and April is officially here! Changes are inevitable with the rapid growth of our magazine and we wanted to take a little space to let the readers know about some of the changes that are going onâ€¦First off, we want to wish â€œKRONâ€ good luck; heâ€™s leaving NUG and taking a position at GODER magazine, a new San Diego urban music publication. â€œKRONâ€ has been with us since 2009 and we wish him the best with his new endeavors! We also wanted to welcome Marc Emmelmann as our new Marketing Manager! Marc has been writing for NUG for months now and we just brought him in to assist us in building relationships and sponsorship opportunities, like the one we just did with San Diego IndieFest where NUG had its own stage! If you missed this amazing event, make sure to check out our coverage online!
NUG Radio and NUG Records are both going through their own growth as well. Make sure to log on to nugradio.com and listen to the live shows! NUG LIFE is on Sundays from 2pm to 4pm and is becoming one of our most popular programs, but keep an ear to the speakers to hear other new live shows as well! NUG Records is going through submissions from bands that are looking to join the new label and are excited about the opportunities! The successful launch party for NUG Records and the new album â€œBe Set Freeâ€ by Subliminal Trip at Soundwave in Mission Beach was crazy! We brought in nearly 700 people to the event and will be posting some videos and pictures of it on our Facebook page and other social networking sites, which brings me to another growth point: NUG will be partnering with Never Satisfied Entertainment to launch NUG TV! We will begin with online videos and possibly a weekly show. We will also be offering video services to the cannabis community nationwide! Keep a look out for more information coming soon!
Now onto the issue you hold in your hands; as always, weâ€™ve packed as much as we could into this April issue, including a Q&A with the Kottonmouth Kings and an interview with the Blue Riddim Band. We couldnâ€™t leave out the local talent though, so weâ€™re also spotlighting local Willie Psycho. The Patient Profile is amazing as always and we have some super dope food coverage in this issue as well, Hash House A Go Go!
April is Earth Day month, so we have an article about the history of Earth Day as well as a business profile on the boys from IGS Hydro, who have been helping San Diegans grow their own food and become more self-sustainable since their inception. Leo Laurence brings us another Law Enforcement Against Prohibition article and we interviewed Dru West of West Coast Masters about their new book.
Roll one up and settle into another issue of NUG! San Diegoâ€™s Original Cannabis Publication!
