Cannabis (marijuana) Vegitative growth Once sprouted, the plant starts vegetative growth. This means the plant will be photosynthesizing as much as possible to grow tall and start many grow tips at each pair of leaves. A grow tip is the part that can be cloned or propagated asexually. They are located at the top of the plant, and every major internode. If you "top" the plant, it then has two grow tips at the top. If you top each of these, you will have 4 grow tips at the top of the plant. All plants have a vegetative stage where they are growing as fast as possible after the plant first germinates from seed. A solution of 20-20-20 with trace minerals is used for both hydroponic and soil gardening when growing continuously under lights. Keep lights on continuously for sprouts, since they require no darkness period like older plants. Bend a young plant his stem back and forth to force it to be very thick and strong. HYDROPONIC VEGATATIVE SOLUTION, per gallon: Miracle Grow Patio (contains trace elements) 1 teaspoon

The Political Garbage Chute | A Politcalocalypse! Commentary Published on May 10th, 2013 | by James Schlarmann EmailShare President Obama’s assault on vice law sanity is ramping up here in California again. #5. Hey, maybe the president is just a little out of touch. #4. Sure, it’d be better if we were giving African-Americans and other minority groups that are disproportionately arrested and convicted of minor marijuana laws scholarships and tutoring. #3. Hey, sure he smoked pot a long time ago, but that was like, a long time ago man. #2. Maybe it’s not even his fault. #1. The bottom line is something that I’m not going to be the first or the last person to point out — if Obama had been caught as a young black man partaking in his Choom Gang activities, there’s a more than even chance he’d never have become a Senator, much less the President of the United States.

Illinois: Lieutenant Governor Supports Medical Marijuana Bill By Steve Elliott Hemp News Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon on Sunday said she supports a bill allowing the medicinal use of cannabis, explaining that testimony from seriously ill veterans and other medical marijuana patients helped to change her mind. "As a former prosecutor my first reaction was, 'I'm not interested in changing our laws on medical marijuana,' " Lt. Gov. Simon told The Associated Press in a Sunday interview. But after hearing from patients and reading up on the bill -- described as the strictest in the nation among medical marijuana states -- Simon said she is convinced the regulations are stringent enough. The bill, which has cleared the Illinois House and awaits a Senate vote, would let physicians authorize patients with whom they have "an existing relationship" to use medicinal marijuana for more than 30 medical conditions, including cancer. "It does a good job of getting medical marijuana to people who need and keeping it away from those who don't," Lt. Gov.

Illinois: Senate Approves Medical Cannabis Bill, Governor Urged to Sign Into Law By Michael Bachara, Hemp News Correspondent Yesterday, the Illinois Senate voted 35-21 in favor of an historic bill that would allow people with certain ailments to use cannabis to ease their symptoms, if recommended by their doctor. The bill, HB 1 , which would allow Illinois residents with qualifying conditions the right to obtain 2.5 ounces every two weeks from a licensed dispensary, is expected to be signed by an "open-minded" Governor Quinn. "We are embarking here on a way to achieve relief, compassionate relief, consistent with the law (with) a system which avoids abuse," according to the bill's sponsor, Democratic Sen. Bill Haine of Alton. Proponents say cannabis can relieve continual pain without detrimental side effects of other pharmaceutical drugs. Paul Bachmann, Multiple Sclerosis sufferer and marijuana advocate, said of the historic vote "Today is an amazing day. The proposed law would establish 4-year trial for patients in Illinois.

Illinois Senate Passes Medical Cannabis Bill 35-21 On May 17, exactly one month after the same action by the Illinois House, the Illinois Senate voted 35-21 to pass House Bill 1, the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, sending the bill to Governor Quinn’s desk to be signed into law. This comprehensive program represents a significant step forward for Illinois as the General Assembly more generally considers amending its policies regarding cannabis in line with many other states throughout the country. If this bill becomes law, Illinois will be the 20th state (plus D.C.) to allow for the use of cannabis for medical purposes in some circumstances. Illinois NORML supports House Bill 1 because it legally protects patients and their doctor’s right to choose the best course of treatment for each individual situation. If signed into law, this bill would create a medical cannabis system regulated by the Department of Health, the Department of Agriculture and Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
