    THE FOLLY OF EXCLUSIVITY

    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 […]

    Wednesday, July 16, 2014

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

ASK ED MARIJUANA GROW TIP #47: START AN AUTUMN GARDEN

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 […]
