• Great LA Walk - Cannabis Disapensary by Ron Gilbert


    Wednesday, March 18, 2015

    States and countries are trying out many different models for legalization. They fall into two different categories: inclusive or exclusive. The models are exemplified by the laws in the two U.S. states that have already legalized, Colorado and Washington.   In Washington, as well as in Canada and New Jersey, where medical use is legal, […]

    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.

Ask Ed Marijuana Grow Tip #38: Hermaphroditism

My NYC Diesel plant is in the 3rd week of flowering and is a hermaphrodite. In almost all of the flowering tips, there are one or two little male flowers growing. I have a few other all female plants that I have separated from the hermie by moving them to another closet at the other […]


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. Perhaps we need an indirect route to becoming a peace-loving country. […]


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 […]
