New York Assembly Passes Medical Marijuana Bill

ALBANY — For the fifth time in seven years, the State Assembly on Tuesday passed a bill legalizing medical marijuana, backing a measure that would far surpass a program Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced this year.
 
But with less than four weeks left in the legislative session, the prospects for passage in the State Senate remained uncertain.
 
The bill allows the possession and use of up to two and a half ounces of marijuana by seriously ill patients whom doctors, physician assistants or nurse practitioners have certified. It permits organizations to establish dispensaries to deliver the drug to registered users and their caregivers, part of what advocates call a “seed to sale” system meant to prevent abuse or illegal use.

“There are tens of thousands of New Yorkers with serious, debilitating, life-threatening conditions whose lives could be made more tolerable and longer by enacting this legislation,” said Assemblyman Richard N. Gottfried, a Democrat from Manhattan who heads the Health Committee and sponsored the bill.
 
But enacting any bill on medical marijuana may be difficult. The Assembly, where Democrats are a majority, has passed such bills as far back as 2007, but Republicans in the Senate have been chilly to the concept.
 
This year, supporters’ hopes have been aided by the advocacy of Senator Diane J. Savino of Staten Island, a member of the Independent Democratic Conference, a breakaway group that shares leadership with the Republicans. She has sponsored a similar bill in her chamber, and said she had the support of as many as 40 senators, including several Republicans.
 
Ms. Savino’s bill narrowly passed the Senate Health Committee last week; the finance panel could take it up next week.
 
Still, for the bill to be brought to a vote in the Senate, the Republican leader, Dean G. Skelos of Long Island, would need to allow it. Senator Skelos was considerably more circumspect about medical marijuana’s chances on Tuesday, saying no decision had been made on a vote.
 
Ms. Savino suggested that talks with Mr. Skelos were continuing and said she fully expected her bill to be passed before the legislative session is scheduled to end June 19.
 
“I’m doing this,” she said in an interview. “It’s going to happen.”

Basic Soil Requirements For Outdoor Marijuana Growers

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 28th 2014 by THCFinder

Marijuana soil requirements

The soil in which you plant your cannabis seeds is obviously going to play a large part in how well your marijuana plants grow and what you’ll eventually harvest. Ideally the best soil would be fluffy when held in your hands, would drain well, and would be rich in nutrients. If you are planting your cannabis seeds in large pots, then this is easier to come by since you can either compost or buy fertilizer that provides a rich fertile base in which to plant.

If you’re planting cannabis seeds in a more natural location, a bit of preparation and testing is required to make the soil more amenable for your grow. Either way marijuana requires a lot of certain nutrients throughout its life in order to produce a high yield. The fewer nutrients, light, or water, the less weed you harvest. The three basic nutrients are nitrogen (N), potassium (P) and phosphorous (K).

Any store-bought fertilizer should show the percentages of each in large numbers on the front of the packaging, and they are always listed in N-P-K order. These nutrients must always be available for your seedlings to grow into strong, healthy, mature marijuana plants. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about growing marijuana.

The challenge to you, the grower, is to balance and maintain these nutrients in the soil throughout the course of the marijuana plant’s life. This may be easier if you are using store-bought fertilizer and planting in pots because the mix may already be PH balanced (pH 7, neither too acidic nor overly alkaline). Even so, the marijuana plants may begin to exhibit deficiencies in one or more of the nutrients because the plants do not use them up evenly. In that case you’ll have to supplement the exhausted nutrients, either through watering or through feeding them directly to the soil.

The plant’s look and feel will be a signal as to which nutrients you may be short on. One of the main drawbacks to planting in pots is that you are responsible for providing all of the nutrients that the marijuana plant needs, since the roots will not be able to seek them out in the existing soil. Also the size of the pot, which in turn regulates how much soil you are growing the plant in, will regulate how tall and strong the plant can grow. The benefit to planting in pots is that you are in control of all the nutrients that the marijuana plant could possibly receive.

If you are planting in a pot there are a few things to keep in mind concerning the container. Cannabis growers have used a wide variety of containers, but a good general rule is, the lighter the better, in case you have to move your plants. Five-gallon (about nineteen liters) plastic buckets, which are the ubiquitous by-product of restaurants, work well as long they haven’t been used to store petroleum or anything toxic or heavily acidic. Clay pots are heavy, needlessly costly, and actually absorb moisture that should be used by your marijuana plants. If you use them, be sure to spray the pot itself with water whenever you water, especially during the hot summer months.

Gardening stores also sell grow bags which are thick enough to hold a good amount of soil, and durable in case you need to move them; however, be extremely careful when moving them since the jostling could damage the roots. This will disrupt the plant’s ability to grow as it must tend to and rebuild its ailing root system. Make sure you have drainage holes in the bottom of your container so that excess water won’t drown your marijuana plants, but they shouldn’t be so big that soil falls out. Another tip is to put a few rocks or something else solid within the soil that will help with drainage, but don’t over- do it.

If you are growing directly in the natural soil it is best to have a basic understanding of what kind of soil you have and what else is growing nearby. There are three main types of soil: clay, sandy, and loamy. A good way to determine what kind of soil you are dealing with is to ask a local gardening store what type of soil is common to the area, or simply grab a handful and show it to them. It will usually be a mixture of one or more of the following types, leaning more toward one or the other.

Cannabis Food Truck In Seattle?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 28th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-food-truck-in-seattle
These days, everything is fast and on the go. Food, friends, jobs, everything. The internet has made everyone extremely impatient, not to mention the massive amounts of people that are just... Everywhere! So say that you work in a busy city, where traffic is always an issue, and you need to find a good spot to grab a bite to eat while still being able to get out of the office. For workers in Seattle that need some food (and maybe a little afternoon pick-me-up), there's the possibility of a cannabis food truck starting to patrol the streets, selling delicious cannabis treats.
 
The Seattle based company is called Magicalbutter.com. While the company spokespeople say that they're not quite ready for business, the truck is definitely in the works. The law in Seattle still bans public marijuana consumption as well as saying that cannabis businesses must have a set location and a legitimate address, neither of which a food truck would posses... Unless it was part of a storefront? The plan still needs work and the laws may make it difficult for the truck to become reality but the motivation of MagicalButter.com isn't going to stop any time soon!
 
In addition to the laws in Washington, there have also been reports of edible-related deaths in Colorado, causing an uprising of caution when it comes to ingesting cannabis in food. The reports say that the deaths were "related", not actually "caused" so there is still some speculation as to the events leading to the deaths, as there has never been a death caused by cannabis in the history of our society. There has also been an increase in child visits to the ER, having ingested food containing cannabis. Of course when the plant is put in to things like cookies, gummy worms, and peanut butter, it's extremely important to keep them far out of reach of children.
 
The truck is still in the works and may not appear on the streets for another few years. But don't worry, the company will host private events on private properties so those stoners that are interested in cannabis infused peanut butter and jelly sandwiches won't be let down! Even though a mobile cannabis eatery sounds great, the ideas of these companies are starting to exceed the development of the laws. Hopefully, politics will catch up with these innovative ideas sooner rather than later!
