Grapefuit - Sativa

Grapefruit is a high-yielding sativa with fast flowering times. A sweet taste and a nice tropical high. The guys from DNA Genetics are Southern California natives who migrated to realize their calling as breeders in the relative weed freedom of Amsterdam. But they didn't leave all that great Cali genetics behind. California Grapefruit combines three of the Golden State's favorite indicas: Northern Lights, Skunk #1 and Afghani.

List Of Qualifying Conditions For Illinois Medical Marijuana Program Could Expand

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, January, 8th 2015 by THCFinder
list-of-qualifying-mmj-conditions-to-expandA medical marijuana program’s success is directly tied to the amount and type of qualifying conditions the program accepts. My home state (Oregon) has a fairly expansive list, which is why we have such a large patient base per capita. Compare that to New Jersey, which has a very short list of qualifying conditions, and as a result, doesn’t have a program that serves as many patients as it should.
 
Illinois is another very restrictive state, and up until recently, didn’t have a process in place to let citizens petition to have conditions added to the program. That has changed recently, as the State of Illinois is now asking for suggestions on what conditions to add to the program next. Per CBS Local:
 
The Illinois Department of Public Health is accepting petitions through the end of February and an advisory board will review them and hold public hearings. A blank petition, posted on the state’s medical cannabis website, encourages petitioners to attach supporting medical evidence. Petitions will be accepted twice a year. The next petition period will be in July.
 
Gov. Pat Quinn hasn’t appointed the advisory board that will review petitions and hold hearings. If Quinn is going to make appointments, he will need to do so before Gov.-elect Bruce Rauner takes office Monday. Melaney Arnold, a spokeswoman for the health department, said Tuesday she had no update on the timing of advisory board appointments.
 
Below is the current list of conditions allowed to become a medical marijuana patient in Illinois, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health:
 
Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS)
Agitation of Alzheimer’s disease
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Arnold-Chiari malformation and Syringomelia
Cachexia/wasting syndrom
Cancer
Causalgia
Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy
Crohn’s disease
CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndromes Type II)
Dystonia
Fibromyalgia (severe)
Fibrous dysplasia
Glaucoma
Hepatitis C
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
Hydrocephalus
Interstitial Cystitis
Lupus
Multiple Sclerosis
Muscular dystrophy
Myasthenia Gravis
Myoclonus
Nail-patella syndrome
Neurofibromatosis
Parkinson’s disease
Post-concussion syndrome
RSD (Complex Regional Pain Syndromes Type I)
Residual limb pain
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
Seizures, including those characteristic of epilepsy (Starting January 1, 2015)
Sjogren’s syndrome
Spinal cord disease, including, but not limited to, arachnoiditis, Tarlov cysts, hydromyelia, syringomyelia
Spinal cord injury
Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA)
Tourette’s syndrome
Traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Five Top Marijuana Stories of 2014

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, January, 8th 2015 by THCFinder
top-mj-stories-2015Colorado and Washington Legalize Weed
A year ago on January 1st, Colorado legalized marijuana for recreational purposes. Washington followed suit a few months later in July, opening up a handful of retail marijuana shops. “Colorado has shown the world that cannabis can be safely bought and sold,” says Mike Elliot, executive director at the Marijuana Industry Group. “Colorado’s economy boomed, with thousands of new jobs,” he continues. “And we also saw evidence of decreases in violent crime, traffic fatalities, and teen marijuana consumption.” Even though there are still black market happenings going on and the confusion over edibles is still apparent, most of the things that have happened to Colorado and Washington since legalizing haven’t really been that bad. 
 
 
Marijuana Groups Fund Legalization In Oregon, Alaska, and Nationwide
Marijuana Policy Project decided to put $700,000 towards the Alaska’s Yes on Ballot Measure 2 in November. That’s more than 80% of their fundraising. The ballot stated that cannabis should be treated like alcohol in the state of Alaska and it won. Add on the fact that the Drug Policy Alliance pushed for legalization in Oregon, giving at least $780,000 to the Yes on Ballot Measure 91. The money helped to pay for commercials, sidewalk chalk messages on college campuses, and get-out-the-vote efforts. Oregon’s ballot also won. 
 
 
No One Got Marijuana Infused Halloween Candy
Even though police have repeatedly warned parents about bringing their kids Trick-Or-Treating in medical marijuana states (or legal states), there still hasn’t been a single incident of someone giving a child candy with marijuana in it. Considering that most medicated treats take a considerable amount of money to buy or a good amount of weed to make, there really isn’t any motive for stoners to dish out their stash when a bag of regular candy can be bought at the dollar store for a buck.
 
 
The Marley Family Raises Big Pot
The Marley’s appeared on NBC’s Today Show and announced their plan for Marley Natural. The company will be the first global brand of marijuana and it is being launched with the support of around $50 million in private equity. Marley Natural wants to be a modern consumer product, unlike a lot of the other companies around that promote using girls dressed in bikinis and growers that sell strains like Alaskan Thunderfuck. The company plans to cleanly market and sell their product of loose buds, concentrates, or oils. Many smaller growers were shocked at this move, as they had mostly expected the industry to remain based around smaller scale grow ops and businesses. Alcohol and tobacco are also worried about the rise of Big Pot. They are concerned with whether or not marijuana with compliment or compete with their already established industries. 
 
 
Mainstream Marijuana
In 2014, there were a lot of people who admitted that they had used marijuana at some point in their lives. President Obama started with saying, “I smoked pot as a kid, I viewed it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.” After that, the New York Times editorial board came out in support of marijuana legalization with a statement saying that the 40 years of criminalization have come at the price of “inflicting great harm on s society just to prohibit a substance far less dangerous than alcohol."

Poll: Overwhelming Support For Medical Marijuana In Virginia

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, January, 7th 2015 by THCFinder
virginia-mmj-support-overwhelmingA new poll was released yesterday by Public Policy Polling. The poll asked Virginia residents a total of nine questions relating to marijuana reform. Below are some of the questions asked, along with the results. As you can see, there is strong support for reform in Virginia right now:
 
1. Do you support or oppose changing the law in Virginia to allow seriously and terminally ill patients to use medical marijuana for a limited number of conditions if their doctors
recommend it? Yes – 74%, No – 21%
 
2. Would you be more or less likely to vote for your state legislator in the next election if he/she voted to allow seriously and terminally ill patients to use medical marijuana if their
doctors recommend it? Yes – 64%, No – 22%
 
3. Under current Virginia law, it is a criminal offense for a person to possess a small amount of marijuana, for which he or she can be sentenced to up to 30 days in jail and fined up
to $500. Would you support or oppose a change in the law to make it a civil, not criminal, offense to possess an ounce or less of marijuana for personal use, punishable by a fine of up to $100, but without jail time? Yes – 60%, No 32%
 
4. The voters in four states have changed their laws to allow marijuana to be regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol for adults aged 21 and older. Would you support or oppose changing Virginia law to regulate and tax marijuana similarly to alcohol, where stores would be licensed to sell marijuana to adults 21 and older? Yes 49%, No 44%
 
Hopefully Virginia politicians are looking at the poll results and see that the time is right for reform, especially for medical marijuana in Virginia. Is there any other issue in Virginia that is supported by 74% of citizens?
