New Attempts to Outlaw Home Grows Are Stupid and Counterproductive
One of marijuana legalization’s original promises was the right to do it all yourself.
This cuts both ways. An integral part of the concept of “cannabis freedom” is the freedom to cultivate cannabis in your home. But at the same time, one of the very first excuses floated by authorities for opposing reasonable and sensible accommodations, like legal cannabis dispensaries, was that patients had the ability to cultivate a handful of plants at home.
This, they argued, meant that regulated retail sales were not necessary, which in turn opened the door for the idea that raiding dispensaries was a good use of time and resources.
This line of reasoning continues: Just because the voters approved medical marijuana for sick people doesn’t mean the voters approved a way for them to get any of it. Of course, this logic unravels at the slightest critical tug.
White Rhino (Hybrid)
A spinoff of the world-famous White Widow cannabis strain, White Rhino is a dominantly Indica hybridized marijuana strain. It has been created by blending some of the finest characteristics from Brazilian, Indian and Afghanistani strains. It is a cross between White Widow and an unknown strain from North America. White Rhino medicinal cannabis, like White Widow weed, is loaded with mind-loving crystalline THC resin glands.

Lemon OG (Indica)
An OG variant with not too dense but not fluffy buds, Lemon OG will never disappoint you when youre reaching for a smoke in the afternoon.

Norway’s Crime Czar Busted for Hashish Smuggling
On Monday, a district court in Oslo sentenced Norway’s former top police official for organized crime to 21 years in prison for conspiracy to smuggle hashish. Eirik Jensen was arrested in 2014, after being secretly filmed in a meeting with Gjermund Cappelen, said to be Norway’s biggest hashish importer.
The two men were tried together.
The court found that Jensen had received 667,800 kroner (about $85,000) in bribes to protect Cappelen’s operations. Prosecutors said the total figure may have been 2.44 million kroner ($314 million), in exchange for allowing some 14 metric tons of hash to enter the country.
Cappelen got a reduced sentence of 15 years for testifying against his ex-protector. Jensen got the maximum sentence allowed by Norwegian law, according to Oslo’s the Local.
