On Friday, Oct. 21, Sister Bar located in downtown Albuquerque held a party in honor of the release of the city’s new marijuana-related magazine called The Chronicle.
The topics in the magazine cover the questions of the legality of marijuana, political issues, strain reviews, and the use of cannabis for medical needs. The publication of The Chronicle celebrated the premier issue with directors, writers, and friends.
The Chronicle is the brainchild of the founder of the magazine, John Delgado, and the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Jen Montano. They both had a passion for creating such type of publication, but before they met each other, none of them was ready to do it. However, it happened so that two great minds with similar ideas met and created The Chronicle.
According to Montano, The Chronicle is not the first marijuana magazine in the state, though it is going to become the first magazine that is centered around cannabis culture, politics, and arts. The magazine will contain information about marijuana regulations and laws that exist not only in Albuquerque but also in New Mexico in general. The creators are sure that their magazine will give answers to really important questions Americans have. Besides, The Chronicle is also regarded as a tool for bringing awareness to the medical marijuana movement in New Mexico.
Montano and Delgado say that the hardest thing in completing their project was letting people know about its existence. Both creators are proud of The Chronicle and feel extremely satisfied that they managed to finish what they had started.
The creators are convinced that The Chronicle is something has been coming for a long time, and now when you can see and touch a physical copy of the magazine, it is an unreal experience.
As for the future of The Chronicle, Montano and Delgado are looking for excited contributors as well as writers who are seeking to share new ideas but do not mind being edited.
Delgado sees the magazine as an opportunity for the advocates and writers to express their ideas concerning marijuana and other related issues.
The publication is free, so everyone can suggest ideas that have not been realized yet.
