National Cannabis Coalition Meet The Group Of Cops That Are Fighting For Marijuana Legalization Surprisingly, there are actually a number of police officers in the US who are working to end prohibition because they have recognized that it does not work and that it causes numerous other problems in society, namely crime and gang violence. One of the leading groups of law enforcers working to end the drug war is LEAP or Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. According to their official website, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition is an international 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization of criminal justice professionals who bear personal witness to the wasteful futility and harms of our current drug policies. However, there are obviously many police who see financial benefits from the war on drugs, and many more who have refused to look past the propaganda, so this group is incredibly controversial in police departments. A recent report in Florida showed the divide among many in law enforcement on the issue of marijuana. “Sixty-thousand people get arrested every year for marijuana possession.

Rick Simpson's Hemp-Oil Medicine From the time he was 12 years old, Rick Simpson just wanted a job so he could make some money. He was smart enough to get by in school without having to open a book, so education wasn’t something he took very seriously. After getting in trouble for supplying his ninth-grade teacher with a case of beer as a Christmas present, he dropped out rather than face the consequences from school administrators. At age 16, he went to work in the steel mills in Ontario, Canada. “They found a little bump on his rib cage and cut him open,” Simpson says. Two years after his cousin died, Simpson was listening to his car radio when he heard the results of a medical study at the University of Virginia claiming that THC reduced brain tumors in mice. It was no joke. Fast-forward to December 1997: Simpson had been working at the hospital for 25 years and was covering asbestos on the boiler pipes with duct tape. “Luckily for me, the boilers were shut off, or I would have been burnt to nothing,” he says.

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

Congress Quietly Ends Federal Prohibition On Medical Marijuana "The war on medical marijuana is over." Credit: Great news! A provision ending the federal prohibition on medical marijuana, banning federal agents from policing its users or raiding dispensaries in any state or district where it is legal, was just passed by Congress. The provision can be found in Congress’ new 1,603-page spending plan. Mainstream media may be quiet about this latest news, but you can guarantee the little passage will radically alter the way America treats – and views – the use of medical marijuana. The spending plan, with the medical pot provision within it, became law when President Obama signed it last Friday, reports the LA Times. Up until now, police could still prosecute people for using or distributing medical marijuana – even in states that had legalized it, because federal law designated cannabis in any form as an illegal drug. A massive shift has now taken place. Said Bill Piper, a lobbyist with the Drug Policy Alliance:

Colorado Governor Signs Amendment 64 Proclamation, Creates Task Force Gov. Hickenlooper Signs Amendment 64 Proclamation, Creates Task Force To Recommend Needed Legislative Actions It’s official – Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed an Executive Order today formalizing Amendment 64 into the Colorado constitution. In addition, Governor Hickenlooper created a task force to help the implementation process. I find it interesting that Washington State media outlets were reporting a need for experts in Washington, but Colorado’s process seemed fairly smooth. I think that’s a testament to Colorado’s system pre-Amendment 64, and should be an example to other state governments with medical marijuana programs. “Gov. “To help inform the upcoming legislative process, the governor today also signed an Executive Order to create a Task Force on the Implementation of Amendment 64. The Task Force will be co-chaired by Jack Finlaw, the Governor’s Chief Legal Counsel, and Barbara Brohl, the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Revenue. Rep.

The Cancer Scam: Part One Back in 1930, the U.S. government formed the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN). The FBN instigated America’s first “War on Drugs.” Between 1930 and 1934, the bureau, under Harry Anslinger’s leadership, focused its efforts on opiates. Then, for inexplicable reasons, it targeted marijuana, a substance the American public knew best as a medicinal herb and that had no previous history of widespread abuse or addiction. Most marijuana smokers are Negroes, Hispanics, jazz musicians, and entertainers. A cult classic film about Marihuana claiming women cry for it and men will die for it. An unabashed racist, Anslinger also said, “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men” and “the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.” Ironically, the hemp used to make paper does not contain THC, so outlawing that type of hemp had nothing to do with curbing the “evils” of smoking marijuana. The Cancer Scam Fast forward to 1974. Further reading:

My California Cannabis - News about California medical cannabis patients, collectives, marijuana laws and marijuana legalization. Dabs, the Latest Pot Trend Police and Media Are Needlessly Freaking Out About Photo Credit: YouTube screen grab A highly potent form of marijuana has made its way to the East Coast, and law enforcement and "advocates" are very worried. In fact, they're so worried that they are making false and baseless claims about its dangers. Shop ▾ The stuff is basically butane hash oil, which is now generically called "dabs." Shatter is the hash oil derivative in the form of marijuana wax, and is typically produced as a thin, hard, translucent sheet, which will shatter in pieces if dropped to the floor. Make no mistake—dabs is strong stuff. Just before Christmas, police in Virginia busted a truck carrying hundreds of pounds of marijuana and 15 pounds of shatter, the largest shatter bust ever on the East Coast. That bust appears to set off some over-the-top warnings from cops and people like the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. “This is extremely dangerous, there are many home explosions in this process,” Valente said. The Middletown Patch went a step further.
