    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 […]

Please do not support the proposed THC/DUI Bill

Open Letter to Legislators on the THC/DUI bill: I am a social scientist and PhD candidate at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I have been engaged in research on cannabis for several years. In 2012, Colorado passed Amendment 64 to “regulate marijuana like alcohol.” Since marijuana regulation is new, it makes sense to […]

Respect the Bugs

When I wrote Marijuana Pest & Disease Control I developed a great appreciation for bugs and the other insects that enter our gardens. I began to admire their unique roles in nature. Most of the time we underestimate them and denigrate their skills of communication and adaption. All these creatures are survivors, no different than us, struggling […]

ABANDONING THE ENLIGHTENMENT

There is difference between Holland’s history and the history of virtually every of the country in the world -except, perhaps, ancient Egypt. When you look at the geology of the U.S., Romania, Kenya, Japan or almost any other country and see the splendors and vistas that the land offers, you may be tempted to exclaim […]

EXECUTE THE CORPORATIONS

The permanent people, as I like to call corporations, are immortal, unlike the temporary citizens: that is, flesh and blood people. And as I facetiously discussed, they thus have more interest in America’s long-term than the temporaries. But in the past few months a number of corporations including Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo […]
