Pot puzzler

Once again we present the baffling Cannabis Crossword, to bewilder and befuddle on your quest to solve this perplexing puzzle and win the coveted prizes.
The solution to the CC#31 crossword was LOVE BUDS. Congratulations to Jason in Los Angeles who scooped Grand Prize, and to Julia in Ontario and Chuck in Calgary, who were our lucky runner-ups. The solved grid is presented below.

Also, note that our puzzle grid from last issue (CC#32) had an error. Two squares were missing from the puzzle, they go on either end of the fourth row, making 2 and 5 Down into four letter words, and 12 and 15 Across into five letter words.

Solve the clues and complete the grid, then unscramble the colored squares to find the magic word. Write it down and send it in with your name, address and phone number or email address. We’ll do a random draw from all entries received before November 9. The winner receives a fat sack of BC bud, or some fine genetics from Marc Emery Seeds, your choice. Two runners-up will receive CC memorabilia, stickers, and other fun stuff.

Send your entries to: CC Puzzles, Box 1416, Gibsons, BC, Canada, V0N 1V0

We also accept entries via fax to 604-886-1751, and email to [email protected]

Only one entry per household please.

Good luck and happy puzzling!
