Sour Grapes (Hybrid)
A hybrid of Grape Ape and the legendary Sour Diesel, this strain is gaining more and more popularity. The buds are medium-sized, light-green and astonishingly coated with sticky trichromes. The aroma from these near-perfect nugs is fragrantly similar to white wine, citrus and fruit, with undertones of sour dank. The buds are somewhat fluffy and noticeably soft.

Platinum Bubba (Indica)
An indica-dominant hybrid with an exceptional parentage of Platinum Kush and the renowned California strain Bubba Kush, the buds of Platinum Bubba Kush are populated with a metropolis of trichromes, whose potency should not be taken lightly. Suitable for indoor as well as outdoor cultivation, Platinum Bubba Kush will flower for between 8 and 9 weeks, producing large, chunky buds that reek of dank, Kush and skunk. She tends to finish at an average indoor height of 4 feet, and is a great choice for beginning gardeners, due to her natural resistance to diseases and pests, as well as her lush and hardy growth tendencies.
Colorado’s Pot Windfall Taxes Figure into State’s Recently Approved Budget
As legal weed in Colorado continues to rake in millions, the state released its budget last Friday. Anti-pot governors and federal legislators should take a good look at the pot tax windfall and how it’s going to be spent.
The budget not only manages to avoid what Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper called “draconian cuts” to hospitals and schools, it actually boosts school funding, averts the expected hospital cuts and secures millions of dollars for a new state-led program to combat homelessness, per the Denver Post.
Colorado’s Marijuana Tax Cash Fund, more than $105 million for the 2016-17 fiscal year, will be spent on health programs in public schools, housing for at-risk populations and a new treatment program to deal with the opioid crisis, according to public state data.
The Department of Education will receive an additional $9.7 million in marijuana taxes to create a grant program to support up to 150 healthcare workers whose tasks will include visiting high schools where they will provide “education, universal screening, referral, and care coordination for students with substance abuse and other behavioral health needs” by increasing access to “more appropriate services outside the criminal justice system.”
Why Are Authorities in Detroit Furiously Closing Down Dispensaries?
So far, 167 Detroit pot shops have been closed down and dozens more are expected to get the same treatment.
Attorney for the city of Detroit, Melvin Butch Hollowell, said that 283 dispensaries were identified last year that are all operating illegally.
“At the time I sent a letter to each one of them, indicating that unless you have a fully licensed facility, you are operating at your own risk,” Hollowell told the Detroit Free Press.
Hollowell added that an additional 51 shops were earmarked to be closed in the coming weeks.
These closures will ultimately bring Detroit a step closer to its “goal” of only having 50 dispensaries operating in the state’s largest city.
Recently recovering from bankruptcy, Detroit has a population of nearly 700,000, down from 1.8 million in 1950 when it was a teeming city, before urban blight took hold.
