Colorado Launches First Marijuana Radio-station
The first marijuana radio-station has launched and guess where? Of course Colorado! That's right. The Mile-Hi has started the first marijuana radio-station in the country. "Smokin’ 94.1" features on-air personalities named Mary Jane, Ed Blaze, Stoney Reynolds and Gary Ganja. Ganja tells CBS: “We’re like 420 friendly, we play music for stoners, we have marijuana comedy, this summer we’re giving away trips to Amsterdam and Jamaica. I had a lady call me the other day from Philadelphia, and somebody else called from LA, and they listen to the radio station from work. I said, why do you listen to us and they said our radio stations are boring it seems like you guys are having a good time. We bought the station to put the fun back in radio which is what we’re doing. The individual, the mom and pop radio station doesn’t exist. I didn’t buy the station to make a lot of money, if it makes a lot of money great but that’s not the goal. The number one thing on my bucket list was to buy an FM radio station and do something fun and unique. This is my million dollar toy. It’s a toy. Some people who are successful if they make a ton of money, some people buy an airplane, some buy a yacht, I bought a radio station. All of our listeners are not potheads we get phone calls every day who say I don’t smoke marijuana but you guys are funny.''
Smokin 94.1 is getting a lot of response from across the country, and the staff says not everyone who listens smokes marijuana. The station has one rule for the Dj's, they are not to smoke during their shift. Smokin 94.1 plays classic rock, reggae and comedy bits.
