Every June I look forward Juneteenth jazz Fest. Arcosanti is located of the beaten path of 2 miles of dirt road at exit 262 on the I-17 just 25 minutes North of Black Canyon city. Although it’s difficult to find, its well worth to experience archology. Arcosanti looks like a set for a Mad Max movie. It is a place of beauty as it is built on the edge of a ravine that drops off exposing spectacular views of green pasture below and desert above. There are catwalks and small ponds arranged and built into the buildings. A large concrete Auditorium called “The Vault” is a like a large barrel cut in half and placed on its side. The vault has collects the wind and sweeps through it from minute to minute, shading and cooling people while they listened to music. Advocates for sustainable energy collect here as well as artists that make large bronze wind chimes. If you never been it’s a must see. If you can find it. Note to self: Take a Good updated GPS, a bathing suit ,favorite bud & the Bongs.

As a practicing RN, I could hardly wait to be able to recommend a safer alternative therapy that would help my patients with chronic pain and other symptoms. I was hopeful for the day when I could legally suggest, “Well, have you thought about medical marijuana?” Medical Marijuana, a treatment that could help my patients minus the horrible side effects that come with many of the government approved pharmaceuticals. Medical Marijuana is a choice that can alleviate symptoms and you don’t need constant monitoring to check your liver and kidney function. This Saturday June 9, CAMP 420 presents yet another installment of its medical farmers markets. Although the ‘market’ part is a bit of a misnomer since only dispensaries are allowed to sell medical marijuana.
The AMFM uses a model to give the medicine away for free which is allowed by the AZ Medical Marijuana Act. The patients and caregivers with tables sell a variety of non-cannabis items and offer the medicine for free. There are a variety of raffle drawings that will be on hand and tastings galore. Attendees, whom are all legal patients and caregivers, will have educational opportunities to learn about which particular strains help which ailments with medical marijuana and more. – By Rain Baker, RN, MSN, founder of CAMP 420
