    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. Plants are harvested before law enforcement typically comes around. The amount of THC a plant produces increases as it receives more UVB light. UVB light is highest […]

    THANK YOU GOVERNOR MOONBEAM

    Thursday, March 6, 2014

    I heard the news today, oh boy… And though the news was very sad, I just had to laugh…   Of course everybody understands that I’m talking about Governor Brown of California, who just announced that he would wait and see how the Colorado and Washington legalization laws work out before he would sign a […]

    THE LOOMING MARIJUANA SHORTAGE

    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 […]

MEDICAL MARIJUANA COMES TO MASSACHUSETTS

As I look forward to teaching at the Massachusetts Cannabis Knowledge Forum, I can’t help but reflect on the fact that, last November, the people of Massachusetts did a wise and wonderful thing: They approved a medical marijuana law that allows some patients to grow their own plants. On November 6, 2012, 63 percent of […]

GROW TIP: DUST IN THE BUD

As we all know, fresh-growing marijuana bud is quite sticky. Very often, whether grown outdoors or in, it catches dust, dirt, dander, hair and fur, small insects, and other airborne particles. For that reason, it’s a good idea to filter the air using a HEPA filter indoors and to keep pets and anything else that […]

HOLDER’S STRATEGIC RETREAT

Attorney General Holder does not have a good record. He is one of the new cosmopolitan anti-rights proto-fascists. You can look at Guantanamo, the NSA-DEA-IRS scandal, and his coordination of the federal anti-Occupation efforts co-sponsored with national banks throughout the country. During his whole career he has been a rabid prohibitionist. Yet he still pushes […]

GROW TIP: LATE PLANTING

It’s not too late to start your outdoor garden if you live in an area with warm weather through November or have a greenhouse that protects against autumn’s chills. The warmer areas of the country are in the lower latitudes, and they have enough darkness each evening at this time of year to force plants […]

THANK YOU, SANJAY GUPTA

I first learned of the medical use of marijuana in the early ’70s when a girlfriend tried it for cramps after reading of Queen Victoria’s use in a NORML ad. By 1996, when Prop. 215 passed in California, I had seen miraculous cures and relief of symptoms for all kinds of serious conditions experienced by […]

POT IS FUN

I used to use marijuana for my latent glaucoma. I had no symptoms but if I stopped using the medicine I might suffer irreparable eye damage, so for safety’s sake I was forced into a daily regimen of medical marijuana. Then I was examined by the late Dr. Tod Mikuriya, a pioneer in the field […]
