Where In The United States Are You Most Likely To Get Arrested For Marijuana?

Getting arrested for marijuana is no joke. Marijuana arrests result in fines, and can result in jail time, loss of driving privileges, loss of college financial aid, forfeiture of assets, and many other penalties. I’ve only been caught with marijuana one time (half ounce, 2005), but since I live in Oregon where marijuana is decriminalized I only had to pay a fine ($500). I didn’t even have to go to a courtroom. I just had to go to the window at the Clackamas County Courthouse and pay my money.
Obviously had I been caught with a half ounce in Colorado or Washington today, there would be no penalty. I hope Oregon joins those states soon. Other places are not as friendly as Colorado or Washington. In some states you could be looking at serious time for just a dime bag. My cousin in Idaho got caught with a used marijuana pipe and had to serve six months in jail for.
Where in the United States are you most likely to get arrested for marijuana? According to an ACLU report from earlier this year, Washington D.C. had the highest rate of marijuana arrests. The report calculated for population size, so this is not the total amount of marijuana arrests in an area, it’s the highest rate of marijuana arrests per 100,000 citizens. New York State was second, Nebraska was third, Maryland was fourth, and Illinois ranked fifth.
In Washington D.C. if you get caught with any amount of marijuana, even less than one gram, the penalty is six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. That’s a brutal penalty for something as harmless as possessing a dime sack of marijuana. If you live in Washington D.C. and you consume marijuana, watch out. Obviously you want to proceed with caution no matter where you live outside of Washington State and Colorado, but be extra careful if you live in D.C.

How To Cure Herb
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, December, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
Curing cannabis is a key part of the growing process. Without a proper cure, mold and bugs can overtake the flowers, or worse, yield a harsh tasting bud that no one wants to smoke. If you don't cure the harvest, you run the risk of ruining the whole thing. The following steps are a good way to cure your bud and give you a good quality end product that everyone will enjoy.
A good cure is started at the point in which 50 to 80% of the pistels have turned colors. This is when you need to clean the plant out of the nutes and other products that you have used to nurture your plants in order for them to get to this point. If you don't do this, the end buds will be hard to light and harsh to smoke, both of which are things that you don't want happening to your harvest. Once you realize that the plants are close to their harvest point, begin to give them only regular water. Since the plants store a lot of the nutes from products, they will continue to grow at the same rate on the plain water diet. Hydro growers should change their solutions to plain water a week before they harvest and soil growers should start two weeks before.
Now that your buds are clean of nutes and ready to be harvested, the next step is to properly dry them. This is where keeping an eye on your harvest becomes incredibly important. Mold can ruin virtually all of your cannabis that you've worked so hard to grow. In order to prevent the mold, the buds should be dried slowly. Don't use a hairdryer or a microwave, as you're just going to ruin the weed. You must keep control of the humidity in the curing area, much like a humidor for cigars. Too much humidity breeds mold, while too little will take a far longer time to cure. The normal time for buds to cure is up to 8 weeks but can last longer.
If you don't cure the buds, you run the risk of ruining the whole crop. The best idea is to just cure the bud. Rushing never got anyone anywhere and in this case can cost you a lot of money. If you want a good crop of bud, curing is a key step. Don't make the mistake of trying to half ass this step either. A herb connoisseur will always be able to tell.
Cannabis Energy Drinks

In a fast paced world where everyone is always in a hurry, energy drinks are a billion dollar industry. Red Bull makes so much money that they managed to help a guy free fall from the edge of space to earth. That's got to cost a pretty penny! But let's face it, energy drinks are good if you can manage to drink them in moderation. By getting a small pick-me-up like an energy drink, some people can get through their days a lot easier. But a cannabis energy drink seems to be a slight oxymoron, considering most stoners prefer the much less potent coffee or even tea. So what's the deal with cannabis energy drinks?
First off, they do contain hemp seed extract. However, since it's not a psychoactive substance and there is a small enough amount that the drink is legal. It is true that the DEA put an embargo on all food based on hemp as well as oils. But that decision was reversed in 2004. If a product contains hempseed extract, must have a THC count of 10 parts per billion or less. Since the cannabis energy drink contains less, the drink is legal (although not sold) in all states. The hempseed extract, although minute in the amount, does provide health benefits for the body and can make one feel replenished, awake, and focused.
Energy drinks do contain caffeine so it's important to be careful not to drink too many of them if you're trying to avoid getting sick. While cannabis won't cause an overdose, caffeine sure can. But when consumed in moderation, an energy drink containing natural ingredients (the cannabis energy drink is lactose free, dairy free, gluten free, and safe for vegetarians as well. This makes the specific drink much healthier than it's competitors, which pack their drinks as full as they can with absurd ingredients that do who knows what to the insides of a human stomach.
Unfortunately, the drink won't get you stoned but is probably a better choice than drinking one of the other drinks on the market. While not giving users the effects that one would expect, you're getting more benefits from a cannabis energy drink than one of the other ones. It's something worth trying if you see it around and feel like trying something new! And if not, you can always stick to the good old weed tea instead!
