Hemp in Wisconsin; a perfect climate and soil for growing marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, July, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
hemp-in-wisconsinMADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin has a rich history in hemp cultivation. The state’s soil and climate are ideal for the growth of the crop. Unfortunately, due to federal regulation, hemp cannot be grown in the state, or in any other state. 
 
Hemp was first planted in Wisconsin in 1908. Over the next four decades, the state’s fertile south-central region proved to be a favorable location for cultivation. For many years, Wisconsin stood behind only Kentucky in terms of hemp acreage. 
 
Granted, much of the production of hemp in the twentieth century was dedicated to wartime use. The military employed hemp for a variety of purposes in both World Wars. L.H. Dewey of the USDA once stated that, “Wisconsin hemp is now used in sewing the shoes worn by American soldiers and hemp fiber is at the present time the only suitable fiber available in sufficient quantities for this purpose. It is also used as cordage in ship building, and hemp tow is the best available material for calking vessels.” 
 
Although hemp cultivation all but ceased by the late 1950s, criminalization did not take full effect until the passing of Controlled Substances Act in 1970. Since then, many novel uses for hemp have been discovered and developed.
 
Hemp can be used in the production of paper, construction materials, insulation, geotextiles, and even foodstuffs. The plant is also promising from an environmental standpoint: in comparison to cotton, the amount of herbicides and pesticides required to grow hemp is negligible.

Rules For Legal Recreational Marijuana Sales Announced In Colorado

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 1st 2013 by THCFinder
co-marijuana-rulesThe Colorado Department of Revenue released a 60-plus page report Monday detailing the rules of how recreational marijuana should be licensed, regulated and sold in Colorado.
 
The recreational marijuana industry in Colorado will be regulated by the state revenue department.
 
The state department report sets very specific rules for recreational marijuana in Colorado from licensing to how a retail marijuana store should operate to how retail grow operations should function to marijuana testing to marketing and to labeling of marijuana products.
 
Safe product testing and proper labeling were two of the key areas the Department of Revenue needed to provide rules on by today's deadline and the report provides ample detail.
 
Labels must conform to the specific language requirements of the state including information on potency, amount of THC in the marijuana product, a clear set of instructions on how to properly use the product, a complete list of nonorganic pesticides, fungicides and herbicides used during cultivation and much more depending on the type of product which can range from marijuana buds for smoking, a marijuana-laced food or a THC-concentrate like a marijuana "wax."

Puff puff, pass it: 52% of adults in the US want to legalize marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Sun, June, 30th 2013 by THCFinder

It looks as if the supporters of marijuana legalization aren't just stoner college kids and your one uncle who lives in an Airstream. A historic 52 percent of adults in the U.S., according to a survey by the Pew Research Center, are in favor of legalizing marijuana, up 11 points since 2010.

Sixty percent think the feds have no business enforcing laws in the 18 states that have legalized marijuana use for medical purposes. Seventy-two percent of adults think the cost of pursuing and imprisoning marijuana users is more than it's worth, and the cops enforcing those laws agree. According to Rolling Stone, many officers are sick of busting teens for marijuana possession when they could be doing "real police work."
