Washington State Begins Marijuana Recreational Sales

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 15th 2014 by THCFinder

Colorado's legal cannabis bill is in full effect and people are loving it. While Washington also passed the bill to legalize cannabis for recreational users, the officials there took their time setting up a model for the green business. July 8th marked the first day that cannabis was sold recreationally in Washington state, a day that resembled the first day of legal weed in Colorado back in January.
 
Caden Robinson told the New York Times that his parents actually suggested that he tend the first legal cannabis sales day. The 21 year old is a chemistry/chemical engineering major at University of Puget Sound and his father told him that he "should go make history". So Robinson and his friend Mark Rupprecht, a 33 year old bartender in the city, stood in line for hours under a blazing sun in order to get their hands on some of that legal green. Rupprecht stated that a day like today would "be something to tell my grandkids". Being present at the first day of legal cannabis in any state would be an amazing experience, as one would be present at a huge turning point in that state's (and the country's) history. Not everyone in line was there to get stoned, either. Some of those who were waiting just wanted to be there for the moment. CJ Graham, a 22 year old majoring in biopsychology at Tufts University, told the New York Times that he may get the nugs bronzed, as a memorial of the day. Others said that they were going to give the weed out as party favors at shindigs that were being held later in the day.
 
Since voters passed Initiative 502 back in 2012, Washington residents were able to possess and consume marijuana. Even before that, law officials had kind of backed off of the stoner community, basically leaving them to their own devices (as most police should do and instead concern themselves with real crimes). Tuesday the plant became fully legal in Washington state. However, medical marijuana and black market sales (which is still illegal) are sometimes thought of as a better option, considering the high price of the legal cannabis. The tax of the cannabis is 25% per purchase, which can be enough to deter a legal buyer to instead turn back to the black market, an issue that will need to be studied and worked on in the coming months.

Traveling With Weed Still Isn't Perfect

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
traveling-with-weedThinking about taking a vacation from your state of Colorado or Washington? Possibly going back to see family or friends or maybe just getting away? If you're thinking about taking your recreational marijuana with you, you may want to think again. Even though the laws allow for cannabis to be consumed legally by people in these states, things are still a bit iffy with the TSA and the rules regarding flying with weed.
 
In Colorado, the Denver Airport has "amnesty boxes" in which people can deposit their weed before getting on a plane. The airport has a very strict no cannabis policy and the boxes serve as a place for people to avoid getting caught flying with weed by the airport security. Since the airport is so big, they are allowed to make their own rules regarding the plant. So even though you can smoke it at home, don't try to bring it on your flight!
 
Washington, however, doesn't grant the option to large venue owners to determine the rules of cannabis consumption. In the Washington airports, the security officers will be looking for weed but only amounts that surpass the legal carrying limit of 1 ounce. If there is more weed in your luggage, chances are that you'll be getting a grilling. The officers are able to call the police if more marijuana is found and the person in question could have charges brought against them if their record shows a history of drug related offenses or if they are carrying over $4,000 in cash. Individuals who have a checkered past with the law should also be weary, as even carrying less than the legal limit could make them a target for TSA officers.
 
Taking a vacation with some bud would be awesome but it's definitely something to be careful about. Be sure to research the rules of the airports you'll be at and the states that you'll be landing in. If you have the proper medical ID, you should still be aware that while the TSA claims that they are not actively looking for marijuana (their website is unclear really about what they're looking for), they will turn people over to the police that they deem suspicious.

What To Do To Keep Caterpillars Off Your Marijuana Plants

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 14th 2014 by THCFinder

The most harmful of these soft segmented pests are the Corn Borer and Hemp Borer. They eat the marrow within the stalk creating stem cankers, which weaken the plant.  A heavily infested cannabis plant can collapse.  A mere five to twelve larvae can literally destroy one plant.  Equally damaging are that the holes bored into the stems by Corn Borers leave an open door for other sap sucking bugs, resulting in the life literally being drained from the marijuana plants.  Hemp Borers attack the flowering tops.  This is one activity you want to nip in the bud right away!

Oftentimes, stem boring caterpillars are not detected until the damage has already been done because they wreak their havoc from the inside of the plant.  Examine the stems for holes with surrounding brown trails.  Chances are you have a problem if you see visible holes on your cannabis.  The only effective treatment for stem borers is to cut them out of the plant.  If the plant does not ‘come back’, make a clean cut at the base of the trail, completely removing it to ensure no further damage. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about pests and marijuana plants.

All caterpillars cause damage to cannabis plants; they love marijuana!  The caterpillars of which we can all readily recognize eat the leaves and flowers of all plants; pot is no exception.  The damage they cause is readily visible as indicated by the appearance of chew marks left on the leaves.  Introducing parasitic wasps will allow nature to take its course in eradicating caterpillars.   Chances are they will appear on their own once the presence of caterpillars is sensed.  Mother Nature has an innate sense of when to send in the troops.   Parasitic wasps lay eggs on the caterpillars’ bodies.  When the eggs hatch, the creepy crawly becomes a gourmet delight for the upcoming wasps.’

Another control, compliments of Mother Nature, is the praying mantis.  This amazing stick like bug may not thrive in all areas, but if you have them in yours, help is on the way.  Praying mantis’ eat caterpillars and will not leave the plant until it has cleaned its plate, so to speak.

You can further control the caterpillar population by applying a neem oil spray.  It is best to spray after the sun goes down or on a cloudy overcast day, as the sun renders the concoction ineffective.  Spray the tops of the plants and at the base to deter caterpillars from climbing up from the ground.  It is not necessary to saturate your plants, but coat them well.  If any caterpillars are not killed on the spot, they will die as they travel through the plant and into the path of the oil.

To make your own neem oil spray, pour 1 to 1 ½ teaspoons liquid dish washing soap to a gallon of warm water.  Add one ounce of neem oil to the container and shake well.  Pour mixture into a spray bottle.  Do not store any unused portions, as it loses its potency after four to eight hours.  Apply once a week until there is no longer evidence of the caterpillars in your garden.  Neem oil can be purchased online or at any garden center.

Of course, you can always hand pick caterpillars off your plants.  Just make sure you destroy them or they will be crawling right back onto your precious plants.
