Jamaica to decriminalize personal marijuana possession

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
jamaica-marijuana-legalizationThe Jamaican government has decided to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana, joining the trickle of countries moving to soften laws on the drug known on the Caribbean island as "ganja."
 
Minister of Justice Mark Golding made the announcement at an afternoon news conference on Thursday saying that Jamaica's Dangerous Drugs Act would be formally amended this summer.
 
The cabinet of Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller made the decision on June 2, he said.
 
"Cabinet approved certain changes to the law relating to ganja. These relate to possession of small quantities of ganja for personal use, the smoking of ganja in private places and the use of ganja for medical-medicinal purposes," he said.
 
"Approval has been given also to a proposal for the decriminalization of the use of ganja for religious purposes," he said.
 
Uruguay recently became the latest country to legalize marijuana use, joining several countries in Europe as well as the U.S. states of Colorado and Washington. 
 
Possession of small quantities of the drug would become a non-arrestable, ticketable infraction in Jamaica resulting in a fine, Golding said.
 
"Too many of our young people have ended up with criminal convictions after being caught with a 'spliff,' something that has affected their ability to do things like get jobs and get visas to travel overseas," Golding said.
 
He added that the government would propose a bill in the Jamaican Parliament soon that will expunge the criminal records of people convicted for possession of small amounts of the drug, which is grown widely across Jamaica.

Molybdenum Deficiency In Marijuana Plants

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, June, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
molybdenum-deficiency-in-cannabis-plantsMolybdenum deficiencies are quite uncommon, but they do have a higher incidence in marijuana strains that change colors in cold temperatures. The symptoms will start with middle leaves that turn yellow. The signs of the deficiency will move toward the shoots and younger leaves as they become twisted and curled.
 
Leaves will turn pale and have a fringed or scorched look. Their growth will also slow or look strange. Older leaves that have experienced chlorosis will have rolled margins, slowed growth, and tips that curl inward and are red.
 
It’s not uncommon to falsely think that a molybdenum deficiency is actually a nitrogen deficiency. But, molybdenum affects the middle of the marijuana plant and then moves up (making it extremely mobile) while nitrogen starts out at the bottom.

By contrast, an excess of molybdenum may resemble an iron or copper deficiency. Molybdenum primarily works from within enzymes to help transform nitrates into ammonia. The ammonia is important for protein production, making molybdenum rather essential.
 
Obviously, it’s important to stop a molybdenum deficiency before it even starts. Products like Marijuana Booster will certainly help with that endeavor. You may also want to use a foliar spray composed of water-soluble fertilizers. To avoid over-fertilization, use a small amount of a hydroponic micronutrient mix for this task. You can use them as foliar sprays or apply them directly to the soil.

Medical Marijuana Bill Advances in New York

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, June, 13th 2014 by THCFinder

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo raised doubts on Thursday about whether he would sign into law a medical marijuana bill advancing through the state Legislature.
 
The bill, known as the Compassionate Care Act, was transferred out of the Senate Finance Committee over the previous objections of its chairman. That puts it within striking distance of a vote on the Senate floor, with the Legislature due to break for the year next Thursday.
 
The bill, which the Assembly passed earlier this year, would have New York joining its neighbors, New Jersey and Connecticut, in legalizing medical marijuana. It would create a growth and distribution system for the drug and allow health-care practitioners to prescribe it for cancer and other serious conditions.

In January, Mr. Cuomo introduced a more limited pilot program that doesn't require legislative approval. On Thursday at an unrelated event in upstate Peekskill, the Democratic governor said he was concerned the Legislature's effort could backfire.
 
"This sets up an entire system for marijuana growing, production, distribution, sales, and if you're not careful and the system isn't done well, this could actually turn into a major negative," Mr. Cuomo said, calling marijuana a gateway drug for other illegal substances.
 
"We want to make it work," he said. "But we also recognize the downside, which is if you don't put in the correct system, you could have a serious problem on your hands."
 
The medical marijuana issue is coming to the fore during an election year when lawmakers and Mr. Cuomo had been focusing instead on a series of anti-heroin measures, among a handful of issues expected to be in focus before lawmakers leave Albany.
 
The broader legalization effort gained steam after the governor's idea to make pot available to the very ill was criticized by some advocates as too limited.
 
The governor envisions a distribution system confined to 20 hospitals statewide, a program that is dependent on federal approval, since without it hospitals could jeopardize their federal funding. Marijuana is illegal under federal law, even as states move to legalize it.
