Scientists Tell Time Magazine Their Marijuana Research Goals
Despite its aggressive name, AK-47 has many peaceful tendencies. First bred in 1992, the name suggests the power packed in its dark, resinous, compact buds that bristle with red hairs and glistening trichomes. AK-47 has a spiced aroma bordering on skunk, with a hint of sandalwood, but tastes sweeter and more floral than the smell would lead one to expect. The AK-47 buzz is immediate and long lasting with an alert but mellow cerebral effect. Lab tests have rated the THC content at over 20 percent, making it a "one hit wonder" for many smokers. This variety can be a little spacey, but is great for playing and listening to music, or other social activities. AK-47 helped put Serious Seeds on the map with a 2nd place finish in the hydroponics competition and a 3rd place in the overall category at the 1995 Cannabis Cup in the Netherlands.
Justice Department: People Cannot Be Held in Jail Because They Cannot Afford Bail
It is not unusual for a minor drug offender to be held behind bars simply because he or she does not have the financial resources to afford bail. However, last week, the Justice Department denounced this action in court, saying that it is unconstitutional to keep defendants locked up in jail because they cannot raise the money required for their release.
“Bail practices that incarcerate indigent individuals before trial solely because of their inability to pay for their release violate the Fourteenth Amendment,” the Justice Department wrote in a first-of-its-kind amicus brief filed in federal court on Friday.
The decision comes in light of a case involving a 54-year-old Georgia man by the name of Maurice Walker, who was busted by the Calhoun Police Department in 2015 for being a “pedestrian under the influence.” The filing indicates that Walker, who has a “serious mental health disability and limited income with no assets,” was told that he would have to remain in jail until his court date unless he could pay the fixed bail amount of $160—the amount set for the offense of being a pedestrian under the influence.
