Colorado Medical Pot Law Poised to Add PTSD as Qualifier
DENVER (AP) — Marijuana pioneer Colorado is poised to add post-traumatic stress disorder to its medical marijuana program, joining 18 other states that consider PTSD a condition treatable by pot.
A panel of state lawmakers voted 5-0 Wednesday to endorse the addition of PTSD to Colorado’s 2000 medical pot law. The vote doesn’t have legal effect; it’s just a recommendation to the full Legislature, which resumes work in January. But the vote indicates a dramatic shift for a state that has allowed medical pot for more than a decade but hasn’t endorsed its use for PTSD.

1st City in Tennessee Decriminalizes Pot Possession
Nashville is destined to become the first city in Tennessee to eliminate the criminal penalties associated with the possession of marijuana.
On Tuesday, the Metro Council gave final approval for a decriminalization ordinance that was designed to stop those people busted with up to a half-ounce of weed from being carted off to jail. The measure, which advanced in a vote of 35-to-3, would simply give officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department the ability to slap minor pot offenders with a $50 fine or 10 hours of community service rather than entering them into the criminal justice system.
Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, who previously stated that she is “generally supportive” of decriminalization ordinances, told the Tennessean that she plans to sign the measure into law.

Granddaddy Purple (Indica)
Green bud nuggets begin to show purple hues as they mature on Granddaddy Purple cannabis plants. This all-Indica marijuana strain is known worldwide for its many phenotypes that include Grape Ape, Grandaddy Grape Ape and Purple Erkel to name just a few. The strain hails from the Northern Californian hills as it has for more than 20 years. It grows very well indoors, either in water, air or soil. It has a predisposition to be short in bushy, as Indicas will. A euphoric effect about the same as the Purple Urkle is produced, a devastating Indica. This is a great night time strain because its such a heavy indica buzz, with a very pleasant upper head body and warmth buzz which fades into droopy red eyes, munchies and complete pain relief and sedation.
