Philippines House Committee Green Lights Medical Marijuana
Despite the fact that the Philippines has become the murder capital of the world when it comes to dealing with its drug offenders, the nation’s legislative forces are giving serious consideration to a proposal that could lead to the legalization of marijuana for medicinal use. The Philippines house committee has so far been particularly open to the idea.
EARLY APPROVAL BY PHILIPPINES HOUSE COMMITTEE
According to a report from CNN, a House committee recently put its stamp of approval on a bill called the “Philippine Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act,” which would allow patients suffering from a variety of conditions to have access to cannabis products.
The measure, which was brought to the table by Isabela First District Representative Rodolfo Albano, is similar to some of the medical marijuana laws that have been passed recently in the United States.
Sour Grapes (Hybrid)
A hybrid of Grape Ape and the legendary Sour Diesel, this strain is gaining more and more popularity. The buds are medium-sized, light-green and astonishingly coated with sticky trichromes. The aroma from these near-perfect nugs is fragrantly similar to white wine, citrus and fruit, with undertones of sour dank. The buds are somewhat fluffy and noticeably soft.

Platinum Bubba (Indica)
An indica-dominant hybrid with an exceptional parentage of Platinum Kush and the renowned California strain Bubba Kush, the buds of Platinum Bubba Kush are populated with a metropolis of trichromes, whose potency should not be taken lightly. Suitable for indoor as well as outdoor cultivation, Platinum Bubba Kush will flower for between 8 and 9 weeks, producing large, chunky buds that reek of dank, Kush and skunk. She tends to finish at an average indoor height of 4 feet, and is a great choice for beginning gardeners, due to her natural resistance to diseases and pests, as well as her lush and hardy growth tendencies.
Students Can Now Major in Weed at Michigan College
Michigan has a dynamic cannabis scene. On the one hand, state officials recently threatened to close down a bunch of dispensaries. But on the other hand, Northern Michigan University (NMU) is helping propel legal cannabis forward by offering students a new major: medicinal plant chemistry. In case it wasn’t immediately apparent, that’s another way of saying that students can now major in weed.
NMU’S NEW CANNABIS PROGRAM
A small college in Marquette, Michigan, NMU created the program in response to the growing demand for trained analytical chemists in the burgeoning cannabis industry.
According to CBS Detroit, this is the first degree of its kind at a four-year undergraduate college. NMU hopes to become a major pipeline for the legal weed industry, which now employs between 165,000 and 230,000 Americans and is expected to reach to 300,000 by 2020.
