Fire OG -Hybrid

Widely regarded as the most potent of the OG strains, Fire OG Kush delivers some of the most frosted buds known to the medical marijuana community. Pristinely crossed with the original OG Kush strain and the F2 hybrid, San Fernando Valley OG Kush, Raskals OG has truly gifted the MMJ industry with one of the best medicinal strains around. These buds look like snow-covered mountains with dancing flames of wildfire sparsely strewn about the foliage.

Is NY Safe For Smokers?

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, November, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
is-ny-safe-for-smokersNew York has had many issues with cannabis since the 1990s and it doesn’t seem like they’ll be getting better with the recent report that the NYPD won’t be arresting people for small possession of the plant. Even though the cops are saying that they will no longer arrest people for having small amounts of the plant on them, people are skeptical. This isn’t the first time the police have made this statement, the first time being in 1977. Legislature in New York passed a law stipulating that small amounts of pot ket hidden from public view could not trigger an arrest. But as said above, since the 90s, the NYPD has targeted marijuana possession much more adamantly, issuing misdemeanors rather than tickets. There are tens of thousands of New Yorkers that are arrested every year for possession of marijuana, most of which don’t have a prior record.
 
New York especially has been the subject of the idea of extreme racial profiling when it comes to marijuana arrests. Within the first eight months of this year, 86% of those arrested for cannabis possession in New York were black or Latino. In a 2010 census, they made up just over 60% of the population in New York. Not only that but with such high arrest rates in the city, most of the people arrested for cannabis have no prior record and have their names tarnished by a ridiculous arrest charge for having a plant.
 
Joanna Naughton, a former NYPD officer and a member of the group Law Enforcement Against Prohibition says that this won’t be decriminalization. “People will be summoned into criminal court to answer criminal charges,” she said. If the people summoned to court don’t appear, then warrants can be issued for their arrests. The idea of a court summons without an arrest would also cause issues, says Kenneth P. Thompson, the Brooklyn District Attorney. A summons without an arrest warrant doesn’t get prosecutorial review and those who need to appear in court may not automatically be appointed a lawyer. “These cases will move forward even when due process violations might have occurred,” Thompson stated. 
 
So if you’re a current resident of New York, it’s a good idea to keep that bud hidden. With such a problem between the laws and what the police enforce, plus the discrimination aspect, it’s easy to see that the road to full cannabis acceptance is a rocky one. While New York may be making small steps, they definitely aren’t big enough for such a tough journey.

Washington State To Hold First Ever Marijuana Auction

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, November, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
wa-mj-auctionThere are auctions for cars. There are auctions for antiques. There are auctions for livestock. Now, in Washington State, there are also auctions for marijuana. As far as I know, there has never been a state sanctioned auction for marijuana. Usually growers just bring it into a store or dispensary and sell it. But, it appears that the State of Washington is taking a new approach, at least in this instance. Per Oregon Live:
 
Hundreds of pounds of Blue Dream, Blueberry Purple Kush, One Armed Bandit and other popular pot strains will be sold this weekend in Washington’s first state-sanctioned marijuana auction.
 
Randy Williams, the owner of Fireweed Farms in Prosser, said he hopes to auction off about 500 pounds of pot Saturday from his 450-plant outdoor farm in Eastern Washington. It will be sold in lots ranging from 5 pounds to 100 pounds.
 
Would you attend a marijuana auction if you had the chance? Obviously, the marijuana has to be sold to store owners since it’s in Washington and the amounts far exceed personal possession limits. I wonder if Oregon will ever take this approach, since outdoor cultivation will be very popular in my home state. I wonder what quality the marijuana will be? If I hear more about the auction results, I’ll make sure to post them.

Why Is Cannabis Support Shrinking?

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, November, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-support-shrinking
Although past studies have shown that Americans are in favor of straight up legalizing cannabis, more recent studies have been a little more disappointing. A Gallup poll that was released recently still shows that Americans support legalizing but the number has gone down drastically in just a years time. According to the new poll, only 51% of American’s support legalizing the plant. This number is down 7% from the 58% that the polling company found a year ago when the same question was asking. This new number is actually a step back, showing results closer to the polls done in 2011 and 2012. 
 
 
Liberals had the highest support of the legalization of cannabis, around 73%, while moderates were at about 58%. Conservatives, however, came in at only 31%. Looking at the numbers regionally, the east and west coasts (primarily liberal), were the most supporting states, while the south and midwest (primarily conservative) weren’t feeling it. This makes sense, as most people know that the midwest is a rough place for those who are artistically inclined or a bit more open minded (in my experience, the midwest is my least favorite place to travel, solely based on my physical appearance, let alone my cannabis use). 
 
 
So what’s causing the drop? Simple answer; scare tactics. If you’ve been keeping up with the news, you’ll know that Colorado has been in the spotlight for some negative backlash regarding cannabis. More specifically, the edibles. Since Halloween just passed, many news stations were broadcasting the “be aware that some stoners might poison your kids with weed!” or perhaps you’ve read the stories about people losing control of themselves, committing suicide or even harming others. Even though some of these concerns are just, the alleged danger is less than what people are portraying it to be. 
 
 
Even though the Gallup poll numbers have fallen, marijuana advocates haven’t lost faith. Mason Tvert, communications director for the Marijuana Policy Project, said, “While most observers would agree there was solid majority support in 2013, many thought 58% was questionably high. Rarely, if ever, do you see a public opinion on a controversial social issue jump as much as seven points in the course of one year. Needless to say, things are moving in one direction when it comes to the tangible products of public opinion. I would take passage of laws in two states and our nation’s capital over some jumpy poll results any day. If Gallup finds 49% support in 2016 after five more states vote to end marijuana prohibition, I could live with that.
