Is Marijuana The Gateway Drug To Gardening?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

The age group most likely to grow their own if legal is millennials, 18-34 years old (26%).

“A year or two of research doesn’t establish a trend yet, but the jump in these numbers is pretty significant,” says industry analyst Bruce Butterfield. “The largest number of adults most likely to grow marijuana themselves is 18 to 34 year olds, followed by baby boomers aged 55+.”

The survey was conducted online by Harris Poll in January of this year and commissioned by Green State Gardener, a national, e-commerce company that helps growers of medicinal herbs by selling virtually all the equipment they need to succeed.  A flagship Green State Gardener store will open in June in Burlington, VT.

“We now have two years of survey results that show a growing number of gardeners and non-gardeners wanting to grow at home,” says Butterfield.  “So this survey confirms what we saw the year before.”

In Post-Legalization CO, Racist Marijuana Arrests Persist

Category: News | Posted on Wed, May, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

Marijuana legalization in Colorado brought the arrest rate down overall, but racial disparity in weed arrests has continued, a new report from the Colorado Department of Public Safety found. A 46 percent decrease in marijuana arrests from 2012 to 2014 included a 51 percent decrease for whites, 33 percent decreases for Hispanics, and 25 percent decrease for African-Americans. The uneven distribution in the dip across demographics means that, in 2014, black people were arrested at three times the rate of white people. 

For youth in Colorado, however, legalization has not allowed for a drop in arrests, but an increase especially concentrated among black kids. In the state, the annual number of youth marijuana arrests increased 5% from 2012 to 2014. A stark rise in the number of weed arrests among black (58% increase) and Hispanic (29 percent increase) youths drove the increase in the juvenile demographic. White kids, on the other hand, enjoyed an 8% decrease in marijuana arrests over the same period.
