Mass. activists push to fully legalize marijuana
Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, November, 29th 2013 by THCFinder
BOSTON — Pro-marijuana activists in Massachusetts have already succeeded in paving the way for dozens of medical marijuana dispensaries and decriminalizing possession of small amounts of the drug.
Now many of those same activists have set their sights on the full legalization of marijuana for adults, effectively putting the drug on a par with alcohol and cigarettes.
And those activists — as they have in the past — are again hoping to make their case directly to voters.
The group Bay State Repeal says it's planning to put the proposal on the state's 2016 ballot. The group is first planning to test different versions of the measure by placing nonbinding referendum questions on next year's ballot in about a dozen state representative districts.
Those nonbinding questions are intended to gauge voter support for possible variations of the final, binding question.
Bill Downing, a member of Bay State Repeal, said the state should legalize marijuana for many reasons, especially since the use of marijuana no longer carries the stigma it once did and many people smoke the drug despite laws against it.
"That's the problem with the marijuana laws," Downing said. "There's no moral impact anymore because the laws don't reflect our common values."
The activists have some reason to be hopeful. Not only have Massachusetts voters twice supported past efforts to ease restrictions on marijuana, but other states and cities have also recently moved toward lifting prohibitions on the drug.
Last year, voters made Washington and Colorado the first states to legalize the sale of taxed marijuana to adults over 21 at state-licensed stores.
This month, voters in Portland, Maine, overwhelmingly passed a question making it legal for adults 21 and over to possess up to 2½ ounces of pot but not purchase, sell or use it in public.

Indoor Vs Outdoor Cannabis
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, November, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
The way that weed is grown greatly effects the end result. If the plant isn't raised correctly or fed the right way, it's not going to produce quality smoking buds. Not only that but there is indoor grown cannabis and outdoor grown. Surprisingly, the two have really different qualities about them. Since the conditions that they're growing in are so different, the buds produced vary in size, shape, and color.
Most people prefer to grow indoors. There are more variables that can be controlled, such as light time and temperature, not to mention pest control is far easier. You can also grow year round with indoor. For a lot of people, winter gets too harsh to be able to grow outdoors. Indoor plants can be grown as long as they need to be to get the highest yield possible. On the downside, growing indoors can be extremely pricey. Between the electricity bills and the cost of the supplies, growing indoors requires a substantial down payment if you're looking to get a good grow started.
Outdoor weed always carries the smell of the outside with it. Even if it's faint, one can usually tell what plant surrounded the cannabis as it grew. Not to mention your plants have unlimited amounts of space to grow, allowing them to reach tree height if they're allowed to. The sun is also the best lighting that a plant get. There is no bulb that can compare to sunlight and therefore, the plants get what they need from the sun. Unfortunately, you're at the mercy of the elements and hungry animals. Deer are notorious for eating pot plants. What also much be taken in to account is thieves. If someone discovers your grow spot, you could end up with no plants at all.
Most of the time, the weed depends on geography. Warmer climates will obviously have primarily outdoor grows. Colder places will usually have a grow outside during the warmer months but continue to grow indoors year round, which actually turns out pretty good. Or a warm climate with both indoor and outdoor. Whatever the case is, if you're growing, props to you! It's a difficult task to grow cannabis well and you hard workers should know that you're appreciated! And to the smokers, enjoy whatever weed you like smoking! Stay high!

A Proper Vacuum Oven Is Vital To The BHO Extraction Process

Butane Hash Oil’s Quality Is Largely Determined By The Quality Of Vacuum Oven Used During The Purging Process
The popularity level of butane hash oil (BHO) is growing exponentially. BHO (or ‘dabs’) has been around for a long time, but in the last five years it seems like everyone I know is either consuming BHO for the first time, or consuming it more, or they making it themselves. I have a handful of friends that I would consider to be true BHO experts. My criteria for BHO expert is simple – if my mouth salivates when I think about your BHO, you are an expert.
If you are a BHO fan, you have likely seen quite a bit of low grade BHO. It’s grey in color, tastes awful, and makes you say things like ‘is this safe to consume?’ While there are many factors that determine the quality of BHO, one of the largest contributing factors is the quality of vacuum oven being used during the purging process. Almost anyone can get quality pre-run these days, and almost everyone can blast properly. However, if people don’t have a proper vacuum oven for purging their product, there is so much undesirable material left behind that it ruins the BHO.
A lot of rookie BHO makers that I know have really cheap BHO vacuum ovens, or no ovens at all. The ones that do have ovens have cheap BHO vacuum ovens that they got off of the internet from E-bay or Craigslist that are made in China. I understand that starting out can be expensive, but skimping on your BHO vacuum oven only hurts your product and reputation in the long run. And as more and more BHO makers step up their equipment, you will be left behind.
The BHO consumer is becoming pickier every day, and they will only consume BHO that has been properly purged using a high quality BHO vacuum oven. I know I’m picky when it comes to BHO; pickier than I am with flower. If you make BHO, and you are trying to take your BHO to the next level, make sure you have a quality BHO vacuum oven.
