Pot Puzzlers

We’ve got a real humdinger of a crossword this time, so load the bong with something special. You’ll need to be especially addled to shake loose the words required to solve this one. But the reward for the winner makes it all worthwhile.
The solution to the issue #23 crossword was RASTAFARIAN. The Grand Prize winner was Mr Murphy in California. Our two runner-ups were Mike B in Winnipeg and Thompson in Ontario. We were feeling generous so all winners should now be planting the seeds of their success, and enjoying their CC gear to boot!

Solve the clues to complete the grid, then unscramble the coloured squares to reveal the Magic Phrase (different colours represent different words). Write the phrase on a piece of paper with your address and email or phone number, and send it to:

CC Puzzles, Box 15, 199 W Hastings,
Vancouver, BC, Canada, V6B 1H4.

We also accept entries by fax to (604) 669-9038, or email to [email protected]. Only one entry per household please.

We’ll do a random draw from all correct solutions received before July 10. The winner will receive a big bag o’ bud, or 10 fine seeds, your pick. Two runner-ups will receive CC T-shirts and some other fun stuff.
