Former Kroger exec investing in would-be marijuana farm

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

The former top lawyer at Kroger is investing in the Butler County farm that will grow marijuana if Ohio voters approve a constitutional amendment to legalize the drug.
 
ResponsibleOhio, the group behind the amendment, on Friday touted Paul Heldman's endorsement of its proposal. This particular amendment would legalize pot, but limit commercial cannabis growing in the state to 10 farms run by backers of the proposal -- three in Greater Cincinnati.
 
Heldman is investing in a company that plans to grow marijuana on 40 acres in Middletown, a spokeswoman said. The farm would be located about 1.5 miles northwest of Monroe Senior High School. His co-investors include Barbara Gould, a former design consultant and a prominent donor to the arts; Nanette Lepore, a New York City fashion designer; and brothers Woody Taft and Dudley Taft Jr., great-great-grandnephews of President William Howard Taft and cousins of former GOP Gov. Bob Taft.
 
"As the father of a son living with epilepsy, I know first-hand what it's like to watch a loved one suffer when he could benefit from access to medical marijuana," Heldman said in a statement. "Until we legalize marijuana in Ohio and throughout our country, rigorous scientific research into its applications will not be possible and thousands, perhaps millions, of people will suffer needlessly."
 
Heldman served as Kroger's top lawyer for 25 years before retiring in 2014.
 
ResponsibleOhio says it has already gathered about 250,000 of the 306,000 signatures it needs by July to put its proposal on the November 2015 ballot. Of the several proposals to legalize medical or recreational marijuana in Ohio, it has the most momentum, thanks mostly to a host of wealthy backers.

Growing Marijuana At A Cellular Level

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, May, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

growing marijuana cellular levelThere are millions of varying kinds of cells that make up a cannabis plant.

The different cell types vary in their function, and they all work together as a sort of cell team. Cells for the leaves, roots, vascular system are just a few examples of the different cell functions and types.

Everything you do with your plant has an effect on the cellular plane as well. Outside factors (i.e. changes in sunlight or temperature) also come into play at the cellular level, affecting the plant’s functions. Consequently, it is very important to have an understanding of cell responses, so you can alter the conditions for your plant to make sure it has a perfect and healthy response.

To better understand the goings-on of cell processes, we will proceed with this article via an analogy. Instead of using the tricky cell part names, we will look at it as the different parts within a power plant and a factory.

Here’s how it works: The factory building, the receival of raw materials, the checking of these materials, and then the production of a finished result. A power plant provides the energy for the factory’s production, plus there is communication between that factory and the other factories. All of this is controlled and kept working in harmony by the head office.

These types of facilities and their processes can be compared to the cell processes themselves, and will help you learn and understand what exactly is going on at the cellular level of your plants.  Download my free marijuana grow bible and grow like a pro!

Factory building

The factory walls are the equivalent of the cell’s walls, which are kept firm because they are mostly made up of cellulose. When you walk up to the factory’s walls, the security guard from the receiving department greets you.

United Nations Asked to Change International Drug Laws

Category: News | Posted on Sat, May, 9th 2015 by THCFinder

While the United Nation prepares for the first time in nearly two decades to examine the staleness of international drug law, advocates from all over the world have joined forces in an attempt to persuade the global governance to reform the policies that bind individual nations to a standard of prohibition.

This furious legion of activists, which consists of more than 100 influential organizations, submitted a declaration on Tuesday demanding that world leaders allow governments to make changes to their country’s drug laws without repercussion.

"Existing US and global drug control policies that heavily emphasize criminalization of drug use, possession, production and distribution are inconsistent with international human rights standards and have contributed to serious human rights violations," reads the letter backed by groups ranging from the American Civil Liberties Union to Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. “The criminalization of personal drug use and possession for personal use infringes on the right to privacy and basic principles of autonomy on which other rights rest.”

The letter, drafted by the folks at StoptheDrugWar.org, comes just as the United Nations is set to gather in New York for its “High-Level Thematic Debate on the World Drug Problem,” which will serve as a preliminary analysis of global drug policies that will be heard before the UN General Assembly Special Session on Drugs (UNGASS) in 2016. There is speculation that more nations, including the United States, would be more compelled to revamp antiquated drug laws if international powers weren’t ready to dry hump them into submission for noncompliance to the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs.

The belief among advocates is that the current incarcerate and kill philosophies that have transformed the global War on Drugs into a soggy pair of clown shoes needs to be replaced with principles that can begin to repair a system in a state of post-apocalyptic stress.v
