Jack Frost - Hybrid

Bred by Goldenseed, Jack Frost was developed over 5 years of persistence in order to improve on the potency and aroma of this strain. Initially with a lineage of Jack Herer, White Widow and Northern Lights #5, these strains were bred before then introducing Rainbow Kashmiri (now it its third year of exclusive inbreeding). THC content in this strain has been measured up to 22.6%.

Uruguay leaders won't tax pot to keep prices as low as 85 cents per gram!

Leaders of Uruguay, where the cultivation and sale of recreational marijuana is legal, won't impose taxes on the drug, Reuters reports. 
 
Their goal: keep prices low enough to undercut the black market for cannabis. Uruguayans will be able to buy up to 10 grams of cannabis at pharmacies for between 85 cents to $1 per gram, the news outlet reports.
 
Writes Malena Castaldi:
 
"The principal objective is not tax collection. Everything has to be geared toward undercutting the black market," said Felix Abadi, a contractor who is developing Uruguay's marijuana tax structure. "So we have to make sure the price is low."
 
Uruguay will auction up to six licenses to produce cannabis legally in the next weeks. The government is also considering growing marijuana on a plot of land controlled by the military to avoid illegal trafficking of the crop.
 
While cigarettes and alcoholic drinks are taxed heavily in Uruguay, the official marijuana trade will operate virtually tax-free, Abadi said. Uruguay does not require a decree or law to exempt a product from taxes.

Chocolope - Hybrid

With Chocolope, DNA Genetics continues their project of creating tasty short-flowering sativas and reviving the classic features of old school Thai stick. The strain's father, Cannalope, is a sativa line backcrossed for fast finishing. DNA refined this feature still further, then crossed a Cannalope male with an Original Chocolate Thai female. Tasting is believing: the result retains the special flavors and effects of the OG Chocolate Thai, and lives up to the nickname Chocolope in flavor as well as genetics. It brings back a chocolate edge that was more common among good weed of the 1980s, mixed with the fruity sweetness of the Cannalope.

Minnesotas legislature approves medical marijuana. Could New York be next?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, May, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
minn-approves-mmjMinnesota is poised to become the second state to legalize medical marijuana this year, but it may not be the last.
 
The legislature and governor there struck a deal last week that would allow medical marijuana by the summer of 2015. It was approved by wide margins in the House and the Senate, putting the state on track to become the 22nd nationwide — and third in the Midwest — to allow marijuana for medical use. Maryland approved marijuana for such uses in April, and New York could be next.
 
The New York state Senate plans to take up the measure Tuesday, and the bill’s sponsor says she has more than enough votes to secure passage — a first for that chamber. The state Assembly has passed similar measures four times, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard, and voters overwhelmingly support the idea.
 
A February poll found that voters in New York supported legalizing medical marijuana virtually 10 to 1. Nine percent opposed the idea, while 88 percent supported it, according to Quinnipiac University, which conducted the poll. Voters in Florida, where medical marijuana is on the November ballot, support the idea by a virtually identical margin.
 
Bills to legalize medical marijuana have been proposed in at least 15 states this year, according to an April count by the Marijuana Policy Project, a pot advocacy group.

Wisconsin Girl Dies Waiting For Implementation Of Marijuana Extract Legislation

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 19th 2014 by THCFinder

Tragically, Lydia Schaeffer (aged 7) passed away on Mother’s Day from a rare genetic disorder called Kleefstra syndrome, which causes terrible seizures and other complications. Her plight inspired lawmakers in Wisconsin to legalize a marijuana extract to treat her condition, despite their opposition to a broader medical marijuana reform.
 
Sally Schaeffer, Lydia’s mother, lobbied the state legislature to legalize the cannabidiol (CBD) extract from the marijuana stain known as Charlotte’s Web for use on children with seizure disorders. Even though lawmakers moved to pass the limited CBD-only bill in record time, determining the implications of the law stalled it from going into effect. Additionally, CBD-only bills leave behind 98% of the patients who can benefit from medical marijuana, so Wisconsin still has a long way to go before patients have legal access to this much-needed medicine.
 
In Lydia’s honor, Sally plans to continue spreading the word on CBD oil. She said she was contacted by Sen. Robert Wirch’s office this week and told they would try to have the bill she championed called Lydia’s Law. Wirch’s sympathy toward the Schaeffer family is welcomed, but his and other politicians’ compassion for the vast majority of other patients in need is currently lacking.
