This Is Marijuana Legalization’s New Enemy Number One
For many years, the biggest threat to marijuana legalization and fledgling legal cannabis businesses was the police.
Fears of DEA agents breaking down the front door at dawn, prosecutions in federal court with its accompanying mandatory minimums or warrantless visits from helicopter-riding police who merely cut down plant and leave—such things happen and are legal—was what kept people involved in cannabis up at night.
But now, with legalization sweeping the country and a vast majority of Americans in support of medical marijuana, the real enemy is revealing itself.
Drugs in America - Katt Williams: It's Pimpin' Pimpin'
Whenever one of the Jack Herer strains (in this case, J1) are used to breed, the result is always superior. This is a classic hybrid, that is useful in helping a wide variety of symptoms and ailments. The buds are dense, almost neon-green in color and infested with tri-chromes. They give off a sour, danky, and earthy scent. When smoked, this medication hits instantly and powerfully, making it a favorite among cannabis patients in Northern California.
Legislative strategies may prevent federal crackdown on marijuana
We're about two months into the era of Republican-controlled federal government, and the sky hasn't yet fallen on legal marijuana. The new attorney general, former U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, and White House press secretary Sean Spicer have both rumbled about a coming crackdown, but the industry is steadfast nonetheless, forging ahead into new markets, adding more businesses and investors.
That's not to say that everything is hunky-dory, though — lawmakers are scrambling at both the state and federal levels to insulate the industry from potential legal troubles.
In Congress, two legislators from Colorado's delegation have introduced measures to resolve certain points of tension in marijuana policy as part of a "Path to Marijuana Reform" legislative package brought by the new, bipartisan Congressional Cannabis Caucus.
Apollo 13 (Sativa)
The Apollo 13 strain of marijuana was produced by crossing a Genius female with a P75 male. The resulting strain is a Sativa-dominant one that will generate an energetic and uplifting, almost psychedelic head high. Note that there is also an Indica-dominant phenotype of the Apollo 13 medicinal cannabis strain; so dont confuse them. Sativa-dominant Apollo 13 marijuana is a heavy yielder that develops floral clusters covered with sticky resin, reeking with heavy aroma.
Could Recreational Weed Help Compensate America’s Worst Paid Teachers?
States with legal recreational weed all report doing fabulous things with the revenue they generate from this new and lucrative industry—fund schools, hospitals, rehab centers, shelter the homeless. The list is long.
Now, South Dakota’s voters are contemplating the same savvy move: boost funding for schools and teachers and reduce the sales tax burden by supporting a ballot measure to legalize recreational weed.
Under the proposal, South Dakotans (over 21) could legally possess and use one ounce of cannabis or grow five plants; non-residents would be limited to a quarter ounce. It’s a start.
As part of the measure, if enough petitions are signed in time for the 2018 ballot, sales and excise taxes could flow to the Department of Education for teacher’s salaries and school supplies; the Department of Health for drug prevention and abuse education; and to law enforcement agencies to help police illegal drug use and sale.
