Massachusetts: Lawmakers to Restart Talks on Compromise Marijuana Bill
BOSTON (AP) — Lawmakers are restarting negotiations over legislation that would overhaul the state’s voter-approved marijuana law.
A House-Senate conference committee has scheduled a closed-door meeting for Monday afternoon, according to the office of Democratic Sen. Patricia Jehlen (JAY’-len). The Somerville Democrat is the lead Senate negotiator on the six-member panel.
The meeting will be the first since House Speaker Robert DeLeo suspended talks earlier this month, saying he wanted the Legislature to focus on passing an overdue budget for the fiscal year starting July 1.
Lawmakers sent a $40.2 billion spending plan to Republican Gov. Charlie Baker’s desk on Friday.
Mango Haze (Hybrid)
Mango Haze is considered by most cannabis patients to be a great all-around medication, with parents like Northern Lights (25%), Skunk (25%) and Haze (50%). Aptly named, this plant gives off the pleasantly pungent aroma of freshly picked mangoes. One of the most favorable traits of the Mango Haze plant - at least by growers - is how incredibly mold and disease resistant it is. While it is shown to produce noticeably higher quality medication when grown indoors, it thrives fairly well in either growing environment. It is also completely covered in thousands of shiny tri-chromes during the end of maturation.

God's Gift (Indica)
A strain that became popular in California dispensaries in 2005, Gods Gift contains flavors of grape, citrus, hash. Parents of this strain are Granddaddy Purple and OG Kush. No matter what you believe in, this strain is a "gift" with its strong THC content of 18-22%. Flowering usually takes approximately 8-9 weeks. Best for stress, pain relief and insomnia.
Oregon Is Not Decriminalizing All Drugs, But It Should
Although a number of reports have surfaced this week suggesting that Oregon is about to “decriminalize” the possession of drugs such as meth, cocaine and heroin, it appears the overall message behind these journalistic offerings has been misconstrued.
What is true is that the Oregon legislature recently passed a bill that aims to reduce the penalties associated with the small time possession of illegal substances. However, nothing in the language of the proposal (House Bill 2355) would give law enforcement the freedom to simply handle drug possession cases with in a manner consistent with decriminalization.
In fact, under the bill, not much would change for people caught holding drugs—they would still be arrested and entered into the criminal justice system the same as they always have been. The only benefit is that once their case goes before a judge, they could be given a less severe punishment than in times past.
