    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 […]

ASK ED MARIJUANA GROW TIP #45: THE BOTRYTIS SOLUTION

There was a slight attack of botrytis due to humid conditions and stagnant air—circulation was minimal with only passive ventilation during part of the day. We immediately went into protective mode—using Ed Rosenthal’s Zero ToleranceTM Herbal Fungicide diluted by 25%, and adding Serenade concentration at half the recommended dosage. Our reasoning was that the ERZT […]

ASK ED MARIJUANA GROW TIP #44: SUPPORT YOUR COLAS

The buds were too heavy and they were flopping over. As a result, they weren’t using the light efficiently and some buds were shading others. We decided to use YO-YO Plant Supports to hold the buds upright. Small nails were used to fasten the supports overhead to a crossbeam. Then we attached the small hook […]

Counties Can Kidnap Your Baby Legally

I’m not what you would call a sentimental guy. It takes a lot for me to become so upset with a situation that I lose it. But I had to turn off an audio recording I was listening to. I have not finished listening to it yet.   If you are interested in determining whether […]

Harborside Harrassment

Try as I may, I just don’t understand the Obama regime’s antipathy to medical marijuana. You would think that since medical marijuana is more popular than he is, that he would embrace it as a vote-getter. It would also re-enthuse the young PayPal-savvy posse he gathered four year ago.

Celebrating Ginsberg

I was in New York for the Ginsberg Festival—held at Tompkins Square Park on the lower East Side. I got there too late for the Ginsberg show but the Low Life Festival, which was part of the program, had come on. The Park was rife with paintings and posters depicting Ginsberg or images that were evoked […]
