It’s a line of flavour-forward herbal cigarettes grown and assembled by me. No tobacco, no nicotine, no cannabis. Only delicious tasting herbs I’ve grown, and all packaged in the cutest boxes. They’re sold in packs of ten through my website and in 3 retail locations on Vancouver Island. So far the interest has been pretty steady with orders coming in and shipments going out every day. Who knew I would love being a cigarette farmer?

If you didn’t know it, CHLY is listener-funded and the hosts are volunteers. Listener-funded means that since we aren’t taking major media conglomerate money, we aren’t beholden to supporting a consumer-capitalist narrative like all the other radio stations in this area are.
Every now and then, we ask you to pitch in some dollars so we can keep bringing you the independent content a well-informed public deserves.
We’ve made it easy to set up online, it only takes a few minutes.
We cannot live in a world informed by the corporate media only. We need independant, critical-thinking views and reporting through a financially-healthy community-based media like CHLY.
Please consider setting up a small monthly gift at chly.ca/donate
As a reward for your generous spirit, here is a photo of me relishing in the possibility of doing my show for another 9 years on CHLY 101.7FM
