Turmoil at Amsterdam Cannabis Cup
As you may already know, the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup Expo was forced to alter its original plan at the Melkweg today. 
We want everyone to know that we would never have allowed vendors to set up, nor would we have had opened the doors to the Expo without assurances from the Mayor’s office that we were under compliance. 
From the onset, we were informed by our lawyers, who were were working with the Mayor’s office, that as long as we remained compliant with local regulations, we would be allowed to proceed. We have strenuously tried to meet those standards and go beyond them.
This morning we were informed that if were to proceed with the Cannabis Cup Expo the event would be shut down and all participants would be arrested. In the 26 years of the Cannabis Cup, there has never been any health or safety issues, nor has there been any lawlessness on the part of attendees. 
We apologize for the inconvenience and confusion that this extra-legal intervention has caused.
We want everyone to know that seminars will continue as scheduled on Monday and Tuesday at the Melkweg. We will announce the location of Wednesday’s and Thursday’s seminars in the next 24 hours. 
Concerts and the Cannabis Cup awards show remain scheduled.
We still intend to have a terrific Cannabis Cup experience. We’ll be seeing you at the seminars, in the coffeeshops and at the Melkweg concerts.
Here are the new rules that we must follow:
1) Expo attendees and those working the booths will only be allowed up to 5 grams of personal cannabis or hash.
2) Security will be on hand to search bags and back bags and will confiscate amounts over the 5 grams.
3) Solvent-based cannabis extracts are not legal under Dutch law. You will not be allowed to bring shatter, wax or torches into the Expo.
4) Vendors are not allowed to distribute or share cannabis or cannabis-related products with the attendees. The mayor’s office is strictly enforcing this NO cannabis distribution law -- to smoke at the Expo you will need to bring your own.
See you there!

HIGH TIMES returns to Amsterdam for its 27th Cannabis Cup. It’s scheduled during Thanksgiving Week, a five-day celebration of international cannabis products. Each year, the legend of the Cannabis Cup grows as judges return home to share highlights of the event. The Cannabis Cup has always enabled judges to experience true cannabis freely and without worry, regardless of whether they are a medical patient or reside in an area where cannabis is outlawed.

Lifetime Achievement Award: Marc Emery
Marc Emery began his cannabis activism in 1990, when he launched a campaign to challenge Canada's 1987 ban on books and magazines about marijuana—in particular, HIGH TIMES magazine. (It also banned bongs, pipes and all smoking devices.) 
By 1995, Emery had achieved that early goal; pot books and magazines were made legal.
But Marc is most famous for starting a political, capitalist cannabis movement across Canada. In 1994, he began selling cannabis seeds as a fundraising tool, which allowed him donate $5 million to ballot initiatives, lawsuits against the US federal government, Canadian Supreme Court challenges and a huge array of campaigns. Marc was publisher of Cannabis Culture magazine from 1994 to 2009. He says he was greatly influenced by Ayn Rand and the late Jack Herer. 
He has been arrested 28 times for pot-related offenses, raided 5 times, and has been jailed or imprisoned 23 times. This past August, Marc was released from a US federal prison after serving a 5-year sentence for selling seeds. In a US court, he agreed that he had distributed 3 million seeds to the US from 1995-2005.
Marc‘s famous quote is "Plant the Seeds of Freedom, Overgrow the Government." He has lived those words. We salute him for his activism and are honored to present him with the Lester Grinspoon Lifetime Achievement Award.
Our 2014 Inductees to the Counterculture Hall of Fame: Sasha and Ann Shulgin
Alexander "Sasha" Shulgin, Ph.D., was a pharmacologist and chemist known for his creation of new psychoactive chemicals. In 1960, Sasha tried mescaline for the first time. 
He then experimented with synthesizing chemicals with structures similar to mescaline such as DOM. 
He taught public health at Berkeley and San Francisco General Hospital. Although he didn't invent it, Sasha first synthesized MDMA in 1965; however, he did not try it at that time. 
In 1976, the effects of MDMA were described to Sasha by an undergrad at San Francisco State University. Sasha was inspired to cook up a batch of the drug, which he began testing on himself in September of that year. He found the compound to have worthwhile qualities.
In 1977 he introduced the material to Leo Zeff, an Oakland psychologist who worked with psychedelics in his therapy practice. Zeff introduced hundreds of therapists to MDMA and word quickly spread outside the therapist community. 
After that, Sasha Shulgin synthesized and self-tested hundreds of psychoactive chemicals, recording his work in five books and more than two hundred papers. 
He was a fixture in the psychedelic community, who testified in court, granted frequent interviews and instilled a sense of rational scientific thought into the world of self-experimentation and psychoactive ingestion.
Sasha's partner Ann Shulgin also conducted psychedelic therapy sessions with MDMA before it was placed on the US government’s list of banned controlled substances. In her writings, she has stressed the potential of these drugs from a psychoanalytic perspective, as well as their use in combination with hypnotherapy. She often appears as a speaker at conventions, and has continued to advocate the use of psychedelics in therapeutic contexts.
Sasha and Ann authored the books Pihkal and Tihkal and contributed to the books Thanatos to Eros: 35 Years of Psychedelic Exploration, Entheogens and the Future of Religion, Ecstasy: The Complete Guide, The Secret Chief Revealed, Higher Wisdom: Eminent Elders Explore the Continuing Impact of Psychedelics, and Manifesting Minds: A Review of Psychedelics in Science, Medicine, Sex, and Spirituality.
In April of 2010, Sasha and Ann Shulgin were honored for their lifetime of achievements in the field at the Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century conference in San Jose, CA
On November 17, 2010 Sasha suffered a stroke. Though his recovery went well, he continued to face a variety of age-related health challenges. On June 2nd, 2014, he died at home surrounded by friends and family.
On Thursday night, Paul Daley, a long-time colleague of the Shulgins, will represent the couple at the Cannabis Cup Awards.
Freedom Fighter of the Year: Robert Platshorn
Robert Platshorn is the author of Black Tuna Diaries. He is America's longest (30 years) imprisoned non-violent marijuana offender. Raised on South St. in downtown Philadelphia, acting ambitions earned him a supporting role in a successful off Broadway play while still in high school. The same skill led to Robert becoming one of America's most famous pitchmen. The late Billy Mays called him a “legend in the pitch business.” He was seen for years on TV, at fairs and shows selling Vita Mix, frozen food knives and gadgets. 
At 24, he moved to London to found Dynamic Reading Institutes. Starting with a rented classroom, within three years he had opened fourteen schools in three countries. Upon his return to the US, he started the Ice Cream Factory. Using a unique pushcart that he invented, he became the second largest distributor of Breyers ice cream.
In 1975, he moved to Miami, FL to attend law school. At that time, Miami was the center of the Colombian pot trade. Robert turned his business acumen to the mission of smuggling Colombian pot.
Attorney general Griffin Bell named Robert's organization the “Black Tuna Gang” and alleged they were responsible for smuggling most of the marijuana crossing the Florida coast. In 1979, a year after quitting the smuggling business, he was indicted, convicted and sentenced to 64 years in federal prison. He was released in late 2008 after serving almost 30 years in eleven different prisons.
In 2010 he founded The Silver Tour to teach seniors the benefits of medical marijuana. Robert now lives in Florida with his wife Lynne. He works for medical marijuana and was actively collected signatures for this year’s Florida ballot medical marijuana initiative. He has appeared in the media constantly to promote the cause, as well as speaking at universities, concerts, benefits and expos and in the media to promote the cause and tell his story.
We are honored to name Robert Platshorn as the HIGH TIMES Freedom Fighter of the Year for 2014!
Action Bronson will play Monday night at the Melkweg (Lijnbaansgracht 234a, 1017 PH), and the Dirty Heads and Rebelution will play Thursday night. Here a clip of the Dirty Heads cooking Dixon's Doozies:
What is the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup about? 
This year HIGH TIMES will be celebrating its 27th year hosting the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup, where every attendee has the opportunity to vote for their favorite strain and companies who host booths at the week-long Expo outdo each other in their attempts to impress judges. It's a party the likes of which few people have seen. And if there is ever a moment when, as an attendee, you just can't possibly smoke one more joint (come on, it's happened to everybody), look around -- you're in AMSTERDAM! Go see the sights (and they are gorgeous).

Anyway, we thought that the 27th year of HT's Cannabis Cup was the perfect time to map out the past 25 years. Some of the info is missing -- mostly because we don't remember everything -- but most of its there, so enjoy:
