XJ-13 - Hybrid

Whenever one of the Jack Herer strains (in this case, J1) are used to breed, the result is always superior. This is a classic hybrid, that is useful in helping a wide variety of symptoms and ailments. The buds are dense, almost neon-green in color and infested with tri-chromes. They give off a sour, danky, and earthy scent. When smoked, this medication hits instantly and powerfully, making it a favorite among cannabis patients in Northern California.

Marijuana at airports: Colo., Wash., adjust to new laws

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, June, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-and-airportsIt's been about six months since specialty shops selling recreational marijuana began operating legally in Colorado. In July, the first batch of shops licensed to sell retail weed will open in Washington State.
 
Both states prohibit locally-purchased pot from crossing state lines and marijuana remains illegal under the federal laws that also govern the aviation industry.
 
So as the busy summer travel season begins, we checked in with the TSA and some of the airports in the pot-pioneering states to see how they're enforcing – or plan to enforce – rules prohibiting passengers from taking pot on a plane.
 
TSA spokesman Ross Feinstein emphasizes that the agency's focus remains "terrorism and security threats to the aircraft and its passengers." And if you search for "marijuana" on the TSA's "Can I bring my ... through the security checkpoint?" tool, you'll get a message that begins "TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other drugs."
 
But if TSA officers discover something – let's say a small amount of locally-legal pot – in a passenger's carry-on or checked luggage that may violate the federal law, Feinstein says those officers are required to refer the matter to local enforcement, "whose officials will determine whether to initiate a criminal investigation."
 
In an effort to keep travelers from trying, even inadvertently, to take pot through security checkpoints, airports in Colorado have instituted a variety of measures.
 
In January, Denver International instituted a policy that bans marijuana anywhere on airport property, including pre-security areas where having small amounts of pot would otherwise be allowed. Signs announcing the rules are posted and remind travelers that the airport can impose fines of up to $999.
 
Word seems to have gotten out: Since the beginning of the year, only ten passengers have been found to have small amounts of marijuana on them at the TSA checkpoints. "The Denver Police Department was called for each person and they all voluntarily complied with our rules by throwing [the pot] away before flying," said airport spokesman Heath Montgomery. "We established our rules early and worked to educate people about our expectations. That seems to be an effective combination," he said.
 
Other airports in Colorado are reporting much of the same.
 
At the Colorado Springs Airport, the local police department installed an amnesty box and as well as signs alerting passengers to the laws governing traveling across state lines with marijuana.
 
"We asking people to voluntarily comply," said Lt. Catherine Buckley of the Colorado Springs Police Department, "and so far only a small amount – 1.4 grams – has been turned in on one occasion."
 
In cooperation with its local sheriff's department, in January the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport set up signs and an amnesty box as well.
 
"We haven't really noticed too much of an issue," said Brian Grefe, the airport's assistant aviation director of administration, only that many images of its amnesty box have been showing up online. "It's been one of our biggest social media hits," said Grefe.
 
As Washington State gets ready for its first licensed recreational pot shops to open, "the best lesson it can take from Colorado is that while it is illegal to transport marijuana out of the state, people are still going to inadvertently show up with it at the airport," said Jeff Price an aviation and security expert and an a professor at the Metropolitan State University of Denver.

Colorado Issues Regulations On Cannabis Edibles And Concentrates

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, June, 18th 2014 by THCFinder
concentrates-and-edibles-regulations-issuedThere are many ways to consume cannabis. Long gone are the days when everyone just smoked joints or used small metal pipes. The cannabis consumer is getting more sophisticated every day, especially in Colorado. More and more people in Colorado are consuming cannabis edibles and concentrates. This has led to the need for regulations specific to edibles and concentrates.
 
Edibles and concentrates are trickier to regulate than flower. Edibles and concentrates involve flower, but also require additional processes. Dosage levels are stronger than flower, which creates even more issues. Getting the right regulations is important to minimize issues as Colorado continues to implement cannabis legalization. Of course, Maureen Dowd illustrated the need for both proper labeling and responsible use in her recent column detailing her experience when eating too much of edible, particularly for a novice.
 
Two new bills have been signed that will hopefully get solid and fair regulations in place. Per High Times:
 
Last week, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed a pair of bills intended to establish tighter regulations for cannabis edibles and concentrates throughout the state. The edible legislation creates a task force to design packaging and labeling to ensure pot-edible products are clearly distinguishable from regular food products, especially critical for cannabis-laced items like cookies and candy that can potentially appeal to children.
 
The concentrate legislation authorizes a scientific study to guide the State Licensing Authority in establishing the equivalency of one ounce of pot in cannabis retail products, such as hash oil. Some lawmakers have expressed concern that an ounce of cannabis concentrate is considerably more potent than an ounce of flowers.
 
Colorado and Washington are doing something that no other state in America has ever done before – implement cannabis legalization. Creating regulations from scratch is no easy task, for any industry. There is no playbook for how to implement cannabis legalization properly. The rules are being written and re-written as the process goes along. However, I think Colorado is doing a stellar job at navigating the uncharted territory.

Georgia man invites cop to watch his marijuana videos on YouTube, gets arrested

Category: News | Posted on Wed, June, 18th 2014 by THCFinder

Note to self: Don't show police video of pot garden.
 
A Georgia man was allegedly swimming naked at Glenloch Recreation Center in Peachtree City when police showed up to arrest him for indecent exposure last Friday — but it didn’t stop there.
Zach Peak, 29, shot his exchange with the officer for his YouTube channel. Then he inexplicably invited the arresting officer to watch his other videos online.
"The officer didn't think anything of it at first," Lt. Mark Brown told WXIA-TV. "He eventually got around to find some time to look up the gentleman's YouTube page."
 
One video featured quite the elaborate grow operation in his parents' home — and it appears someone might have gotten high on his own supply.
"Neglected, neglected," Peak says in the video as he waters the pot plants, according to WSB Radio.
Another video shows Peak lighting and smoking from a bong.
 
Authorities obtained a search warrant based on this evidence and wound up confiscating 33 illegal plants and related paraphernalia.
On top of indecent exposure, Peak now faces charges for manufacturing and possessing marijuana.
