    The Marijuana Users Bill of Rights

    Friday, August 29, 2014

    In mid-August I attended Seattle Hempfest. It was the first Hempfest since the implementation of I-502, which passed by popular vote in 2012 and “legalized” marijuana in the State of Washington. What Washington has is not legalization and it is clear to me we must define what legalization really means to users of marijuana through a Marijuana Users […]

    3 Reasons to Use Light Deprivation Techniques

    Wednesday, July 16, 2014

    Three reasons I encourage outdoor gardeners to use light deprivation techniques are: Exposure to UVB light increases THC production. Harvest happens before cooler, damper Fall weather sets in.

    Tuesday, February 11, 2014

    California is about to suffer from a marijuana shortage that will drive prices sky-high in the next year throughout the whole country. The reason: the record-breaking drought the state has been experiencing for the last three years. This year has been the worst. Where I live, in Oakland, we usually receive 17–21 inches of water […]

True Patriotism

You’ll see that I’m full of ideas this week, here’s another one. The one solution to the U.S.’s economic woes that everyone in government turns a blind eye to is a cutback on our biggest expenditure– preparing for war and then warring other countries.

A New “NewsHour”

I heard the news recently, oh boy. It seems Chevron is trying to repair its holes and has decided to plug the leak of $2 million a year streaming into The PBS News Hour with Jim Lehrer. Frankly, I don’t understand why they did it. Lehrer has been pretty kind to them, as kind as […]

What One Person Can Do

It is amazing what one person can do, especially if that person is willing to make a big sacrifice. Take for instance Mohamed Bouazizi, the Tunisian street vendor who set himself on fire last December because he could no longer tolerate being humiliated by the police. He set off the Arab Spring, which is still […]

Ask Ed Marijuana Grow Tip #37: Varietal Differences

VARIETAL DIFFERENCES I started two plants from the same seeds; they sprouted within one day of each other, but they are growing differently. One has an umbrella-like canopy and the other has leaves that grow upward like a palm tree. They are both very healthy. Why are the plants so different? Cali, Colombia, Pedro-Newbie Farmer […]
