Mango - Indica

Mangos parentage is part KC 33 and part Mango from a hippie fellow who grew it for 30 years, then let KC use it as a cross in 1991. It is a 100 percent indica strain that grows large and produces prodigiously. Dont let Mangos slow start fool you - this variety will eventually rival the impressive size of many KC varieties, which are especially intended for outdoor grows. If you want Mango to stay at an average size in an outdoor garden, allow only 3 weeks of vegetative time and transplant outdoors as late as July in Northern latitudes. Mango can also be grown in an indoor garden, but needs a lot of space.

Hempstalk Permit Denied For 2015

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, November, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
hempstalk-permit-deniedWere you planning on attending Hempstalk in Oregon next year? Might have to rethink your plans unfortunately, as the Portland parks officials have denied the permit of Hempstalk Festival for 2015. Not only did the officials deny the permit, they waited until the day after Oregon’s vote to join Colorado and Washington in legal cannabis for recreational users. The park officials sent a letter the Paul Stanford the day after the vote. The letter said that Stanford couldn’t organize Hempstalk at Tom McCall Waterfront Park or any other public property.
 
 
Even though Hempstalk has previously been held in Portland, city officials stated that past years of the event haven’t been organized well. The disorganization they’re referring to means that attendees were smoking cannabis and the organizers of the event were unable or unwilling to intervene. On Wednesday, Shawn Rogers, the Parks Bureau customer service center, wrote that the denial of the permit stems from the inability of those organizing the event to manage it in accordance with the necessary condition that are clearly outlined for such an event. 
 
 
Lax rules at Hempstalk may end up being it’s downfall, as the city had people go to Hempstalk in order to see how things were going. Previously, the event had been held at Kelley Point Park in North Portland. Officials that attended said that there was a serious problem controlling those in the crowd that were smoking. Not only that but when Rogers himself attended the event, he heard speakers from the main stage telling attendees to go outside the front gates in order to smoke weed. Rogers said that the smoke was so thick, “I actually felt like I was at risk of getting high.”
 
 
Rogers and the other parks officials made sure to say that the denial of the Hempstalk 2015 permit isn’t a stab at the marijuana community in general. It’s more so about the ability of those who put on the event, as they previously haven’t followed the guidelines that the parks officials request. “There’s no reason why an event can’t be done legally, lawfully, and well managed,” Rogers said. It is nice to smoke marijuana at an event that’s related to the plant. But is it worse to not smoke or to just not have the event at all? 
 
 
“We intend to seek a writ of review,” Lawyer Ann Witte said in an email. “We will ask the court to stop the city cousin review until our case is heard in court."

Marijuana Taxes Used To Hire More School Nurses In Colorado

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, November, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
mj-taxes-used-to-hire-school-nursesPublic schools are underfunded across America. That is a well known fact. So when schools get an infusion of new revenue to hire more staff, it’s a big deal. In Colorado, tax revenues that were generated by legal marijuana sales are being used to hire more school nurses. Per the Huffington Post:
 
The state awarded nearly a million dollars’ worth of grants to schools throughout the state this week, reports The Denver Post. The grant money will be used by schools to hire health professionals such as nurses, psychologists and counselors and it’s composed of funds from marijuana tax revenue.
 
The more than $975,000 of grants handed out this week is part of a larger fund of $2.5 million created by the state legislature for schools to hire health professionals, says the outlet. The window for schools to apply for the rest of the funds closed last week.
 
Overall, a great deal of tax revenue generated by marijuana sales will help public schools in the state. In August, Education Week reported that more than $1 million of pot revenue is being used to help schools fund construction projects.
 
I would love to hear a marijuana opponent’s reasoning as to how this is a bad thing. I doubt they will ever take on the story head on, and instead will keep focusing on their tired, unfounded arguments about the harms of marijuana and how it’s a plague on our society. In Colorado, that couldn’t be further from the case. Marijuana is helping the public school system in Colorado, not hurting it, proven by every new person that is hired into the public school system as a result of marijuana tax revenues. I can’t wait until this starts happening in Oregon, where marijuana taxes will go to schools, law enforcement, and substance abuse treatment programs. Why isn’t every state doing this?

Pineapple Kush - Hybrid

Pineapple Kush draws from old-world genetics, a dark green Indica from California. The feeling is calming and brings a centered sensation. It is good for those that prefer a mellow high instead of a heart-racing speedy sensation. The aroma and flavor is decidedly pineapple, with a subtle sweetness that lingers pleasantly on the tongue.

Is Marijuana Linked To Abnormalities In Key Brain Region?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, November, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
brain-mj-abnormalitiesThere are celebrities, like Cheech and Chong, that have been smoking weed for years. Nothing terrible seems to have happened to them. While other famous people have overdosed on other drugs like heroin and cocaine, the stoner duo remains standing. Along with many others, Cheech and Chong are somewhat of living proof that weed doesn’t cause issues if you’ve been smoking it for years. But a new study from the University of Texas at Dallas is saying that heavy, long term marijuana use is linked to smaller volume in the orbitofrontal cortex, the part of the brain where decision making takes place. This part of the mind also deals with addiction.
 
 
The research shows that when an individual starts using marijuana earlier on in life, the more pronounced the brain abnormalities. Additionally though, the same research shows that the brains of heavy marijuana users have greater connectivity in this part of the brain as compared to those who don’t use pot. But even with the enhanced connectivity, the research says that this key part of the brain loses this ability over time. The abnormalities aren’t known to cause any mental illness of emotional deficits yet.
 
 
Dr. Francesca Filbey was the leader of the study. She is the director of the university’s Center for BrainHealth and an associate professor in the university’s School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences. The study consisted of 48 adults who smoked marijuana three times a day for ten years, on average and 62 users who didn’t consume cannabis. Filbey and her team used MRI scanners to compare the brains of the two group. Their findings, while provocative, are acknowledged even by them, aren’t concrete evidence of cannabis contributing directly to the brain changes. Dr. Asaf Keller, a professor of anatomy and neurobiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine wasn’t involved with the study but was asked by the Huffington Post to comment on the new data. 
 
 
“As this is a retrospective study - not a prospective one - it is impossible to determine whether individual differences in brain anatomy are related to genetic or environmental factors other than marijuana use. In sum, there is not indication that the anatomical difference in the brains of marijuana users are caused by marijuana use,” Dr. Keller told HuffPost Science. These results will have to be duplicated in similar studies for the data to be concrete. For now, cannabis users can still rest easy in thinking that cannabis has absolutely no negative long term effects.
