• Great LA Walk - Cannabis Disapensary by Ron Gilbert


    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

Ask Ed Marijuana Grow Tip #41: Spring Has Sprung

Has spring sprung in your area? Do the evenings stay above 50 degrees and does it get up into the seventies during the day? If it does, you can start a spring crop. You’ll grow the plants vegetatively for a month or two, and then place them into flowering. The plants won’t be very large […]

A Simple Message to Obama About the Oaksterdam Raids and My Friend Richard Lee

On Monday, April 2, Oaksterdam University in Oakland was raided by over 100 DEA, IRS, and US Marshals. Oaksterdam provides training to the medical cannabis industry, and is fully compliant with state and local law. I’m asking for your help now in letting President Obama know that the public does not approve of this show of […]



Every parent’s hope is to have a healthy, happy baby. And no matter how much parents would love a child who has a serious chronic or genetic disease, they hope their baby would not have one of those problems. These children through no guilt of their own create havoc in families, disrupt the lives of […]


The Republican Circus

Last night Rick Santorum swept elections in the states of Colorado, Missouri and Minnesota. This only made only one thing clear: Republicans don’t want to elect Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney President. The voter turnout was low in all three states, indicating that the party base is generally unenthused about the primaries. But I think […]


Ron Paul’s Importance

President Eisenhower warned of the perniciousness of the “military-industrial complex” in 1961. Since that time the U.S. has become steadily more belligerent. There hasn’t been a day our lives that the U.S. hasn’t been engaged in active military action. In fact, there hasn’t been a day since the government was formed in 1789 that the […]
