D.C. marijuana decriminalization law takes effect

A marijuana decriminalization law passed by the D.C. Council in the spring took effect Thursday at 12:01 a.m. after a Congressional review process passed.
 
The new law, like others around the country, eases punishments for minor marijuana offenses.
 
Now, unless someone is discovered carrying more than an ounce of marijuana, officers can only confiscate the drug and write a $25 ticket.
 
Police also can no longer take action simply because they smell marijuana. They can no longer demand that anyone carrying under an ounce of marijuana produce identification, according to the Washington Post.
 
There will still be civil penalties for those caught using marijuana in public or caught with it on federal government property.
 
Police prepared for the arrival of the new law by reviewing an eight-page special order and taking an online tutorial, according to the Washington Times.
 
"As of midnight Wednesday night, no member can make or approve an arrest for marijuana possession without having first taken this training," Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump told the Times.
 
Supporters of this law, and others like it around the country, argue that laws for low-level drug crimes such as marijuana possession often target young black and Hispanic men, with the punishment sometimes affecting their entire lives. The district attorney in Brooklyn, N.Y., recently announced a similar change there, and for the same reason.
 
But Delroy Burton, chair of the D.C. Police Union, has criticized the law as too vague and confusing.
 
"This is not a simple issue," Burton told the Washington Post. 'It's about enforcement and decriminalization and where you draw the line of what officers can do or cannot do."

L.A. marijuana farmers market ordered to temporarily shut down

A  Farmers market for medical marijuana users has been temporarily shut down after an L.A. County Superior Court judge agreed to halt operation of the Boyle Heights cannabis marketplace.
 
The judge’s ruling Tuesday grants a temporary restraining order filed by Los Angeles City Atty. Mike Feuer, who sought to stop the California Heritage Market operations because he said it didn’t comply with the city's law for marijuana dispensaries.
 
Voters passed Proposition D last year, which established legal parameters where marijuana dispensaries could do business.
 
The ruling, Feuer said, supports the “spirit and the letter of Proposition D.”
 
“The bottom line is that we argued successfully that this so-called farmers market was an attempt to make an end-run around the will of the people when they voted to put Proposition D in place,” Feuer said. “The court saw through this subterfuge.”
 
The order would restrict the market’s operators from setting up booths and advertising it, according to the city’s injunction. Police and fire must also be granted access to the site.
 
“The court was very clear: There could be no multiple vendors selling at this site, only bona fide employees,” Feuer said.
 
The market, which opened over Fourth of July weekend, was held in a warehouse directly behind the West Coast Collective dispensary in an industrial zone in Boyle Heights.
 
The following weekend, the market reopened again.
 
Proposition D, Feuer said, does not allow multiple, independent vendors to sell on one site.
 
“That’s essentially what this business model was,” Feuer said.
 
But attorney David Welch, who represents the Progressive Horizon collective, said Feuer’s argument doesn’t make sense.
 
He said a farmers market is no different from a dispensary in that they both sell goods from a variety of vendors.
 
“Their arguments are basically a misunderstanding on how this business operates,” he said.
 
The city’s actions, Welch said, were essentially proving that “you can’t actually open a marijuana dispensary” in Los Angeles.
 
A hearing is scheduled Aug. 6 to determine whether the market will be permanently closed.

Does Playing Music For Marijuana Plants Help Them Grow?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 16th 2014 by THCFinder
music-for-mj-plants
Once upon a time I watched an episode of Myth Busters that explored whether or not playing music for plants helped them grow. When the episode started, the hosts of the show seemed skeptical, as was I the viewer. By the end of the episode, it seemed pretty difinitive that playing music for plants did indeed help them grow, and that heavy metal music in particular worked the best. One of my good friends starting playing heavy metal music for his marijuana plants from that time on, and swears it has helped his plants.
 
The Myth Busters episode stopped short of providing a solid explanation for why music helped plants grow. An article recently published by Science World Report gives a good explanation about how vibrations, which can be caused by music or other things, help a plant’s photosynthesis process:
 
“What we’ve found is that when the gaps in energy level are close to vibrational frequencies, you can have enhanced charge separation,” said Ogilvie. “It’s a bit like a bucket-bridgade: how much water you transport down the line of people depends on each person getting the right timing and the right motion to maximize the thoroughput. Our experiments have told us about the important timing and motions that are used to separate the charge in the photosystem II reaction center.”
 
Certain vibrations help plant’s photosynthesis process. I find this absolutely fascinating. Whether or not marijuana plants prefer heavy metal versus Snoop Dogg is still up in the air, but I think it’s good to play some type of music for them none the less. As with most studies like this, there needs to be more research. If I come across more info, I’ll either modify this article, or post another one. In the meantime I will be creating a 420 friendly playlist for my marijuana plants!

Mango - Indica

Mango - Indica

Mangos parentage is part KC 33 and part Mango from a hippie fellow who grew it for 30 years, then let KC use it as a cross in 1991. It is a 100 percent indica strain that grows large and produces prodigiously. Dont let Mangos slow start fool you - this variety will eventually rival the impressive size of many KC varieties, which are especially intended for outdoor grows. If you want Mango to stay at an average size in an outdoor garden, allow only 3 weeks of vegetative time and transplant outdoors as late as July in Northern latitudes. Mango can also be grown in an indoor garden, but needs a lot of space.
