Chem Dawg (Indica)
The famed Chem Dawg, aka Chemdawg, is one of the most potent Marijuana strains in existence. Originating in mystery and legend, Chem Dawg was supposedly found as a seed in a bag of high-quality bud bought by the strains namesake, who is now breeding various new varieties with these genetics. Chem Dawg is powerful medicine, with a strong smell of pine-sol and jet fuel, and a very strong high which can be too strong and anxiety-producing for less-experienced smokers. As the progenitor of many Kush and Diesel varieties, Chem Dawg is a proud parent of many currently popular marijuana strains.

Sensi Star (Indica)
Sensi Star is a great indoor plant, producing powerful, resinous, and very compact buds. Although mostly indica, she retains a complex high that affects the mind as well as the body. This headstrong indica produces rock hard colas that have a lemony scent and taste. Some smokers find the buzz to be a very strong body stone, while others report a high with more energetic, cerebral properties as well as a body sensation. THC levels have been reported at 20 percent for this variety, making it a one-hitter quitter. CBD has been measured at .9 percent.
Iceland Figured Out How to Stop Teen Drug Substance Abuse—Can the Rest of the World to Do the Same?
In Iceland, teenage smoking, drinking and drug use have been radically cut in the past 20 years. Emma Young, of Mosaic Science, writes how they did it, and why other countries won’t follow suit. An abridged version of that article was written for HIGH TIMES by Maureen Meehan.
Twenty years ago Icelandic teens were among the heaviest-drinking youths in Europe. Today, it is exactly the opposite.
How did Iceland Do It?
The dramatic turnaround, radical and evidence-based, relied a lot on what might be termed enforced common sense.
“This is the most remarkably intense and profound study of stress in the lives of teenagers that I have ever seen,” said Harvey Milkman, an American psychology professor who teaches at Reykjavik University for part of the year.
Oregon rakes in $60 million in state sales taxes from marijuana
Recreational marijuana sales in Oregon produced $60.2 million in state tax revenue in 2016, the first year of state-taxed pot sales.
For much of the year, marijuana sellers collected a 25 percent sales tax.
To produce the $60.2 million in tax revenue reported by the state Department of Revenue on Friday, total retail sales of marijuana and pot-laced products last year would have had to equal about $241 million.
Marijuana tax revenues exceeded projections, said Mazen Malik, senior economist for the Oregon Legislative Revenue Office. He had estimated marijuana sales would produce $44 million during the year, $16 million less than what came in.
Higher-than-predicted prices for marijuana extracts and edibles may have contributed to the higher than projected tax revenues, Malik said.
