Was That Michael Pollan Hyping Weed at Last Night's Cannabis Cup? Uh, Not Exactly
Okay, so we know from some of his writing that Michael Pollan is a fan of the wacky tobacc-y, but last night we did a serious double take when we spotted this guy manning a booth for a pot activist group called Americans for Safe Access at last night's Third Annual Cannabis Cup in SOMA. We figured that either Pollan has gotten more serious about his pro-pot stance, or he has one serious doppelgänger. Later, we found out the lookalike's name is Michael Koehn. Which, when you say it fast in a room where spliffs are as plentiful as logo pens at a builders' convention, sounds remarkably like "Michael Pollan." Freaky, huh?
