    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 […]

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 […]

    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 […]

How out of touch with reality is Allison Holcomb?

In a recent article in The Nation, The Colorado Cannabis Factor, authors Alyson Martin and Nuhin Rashidian argue that cannabis advocacy in Colorado could determine the results of the presidential election. Meanwhile, however, some cannabis advocates won’t admit that Obama is to blame for federal prosecutors’ actions or that the crackdowns defy the Ogden memo, which discouraged U.S. attorneys […]

DON’T WASTE YOUR VOTE, PART II

I’m campaigning and voting for Roseanne Barr for President. She favors the Bill of Rights rather than the security state, is for the legalization of marijuana, opposes wars, is pro-environment and is concerned about people rather than the corporate state. Roseanne is a funny woman. And to be a good comedian you must be very […]

DON’T WASTE YOUR VOTE

There are only ten states where your vote counts. The swing states in play are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin. In all the other the states the vote isn’t even close. For instance, in my state, California, Obama is beating Romney among likely voters 53-35 percent. So […]
