First day of legal marijuana sales in Washington state

Category: News | Posted on Wed, July, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
legal-marijuana-salesSEATTLE (AP) — Surrounded by thousands of packages of marijuana, Seattle's top prosecutor sought some advice: Which one should he buy?
 
A new day, indeed.
 
Twenty months after voters legalized recreational cannabis for adults over 21, Washington state's first few licensed pot shops opened for business Tuesday, catering to hundreds of customers who lined up outside, thrilled to be part of the historic moment.
 
The pot being sold at four stores in Seattle, Bellingham, Prosser and Spokane was regulated, tested for impurities, heavily taxed and in short supply — such short supply that several other shops couldn't open because they had nothing to sell.
 
Pete Holmes, Seattle's elected city attorney and a main backer of the state's recreational marijuana law, said he wanted to be one of the first customers to demonstrate there are alternatives to the nation's failed drug war.
 
"This is a tectonic shift in public policy," he said. "You have to honor it. This is real. This is legal. This is a wonderful place to purchase marijuana where it's out of the shadows."
 
Dressed in a pinstripe suit, Holmes stood inside Seattle's first and, for now, only licensed pot shop, Cannabis City, south of downtown. The shop was sweltering. He fanned himself with a state-produced pamphlet titled "Marijuana Use in Washington State: An Adult Consumer's Guide."
 
Unsure what to buy, he asked the owner of the company that grew it, Nine Point Growth Industries of Bremerton, who recommended OG's Pearl. The strain tested at 21.5 percent THC, marijuana's main psychoactive compound.
 
The shop's 26-year-old twin salesmen, Andrew and Adam Powers, explained its benefits to Holmes: mainly, that the taste is not too "skunky" to turn off the occasional user.
 
Holmes noted it had been quite some time since he smoked pot. He paraphrased a line from the "South Park" cartoon series: "Remember, children, there's a time and place for everything. That place is college."
 
He spent $80 on 4 grams, including $20.57 in taxes.
 
Washington is the second state to allow marijuana sales without a doctor's note. Voters in Colorado also legalized pot in 2012, and sales began there Jan. 1.

How Much Light Do Outdoor Marijuana Plants Need?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, July, 9th 2014 by THCFinder

Marijuana is a sun-loving plant and will easily grow to large heights if provided with enough solar contact. But since marijuana is also a durable and resilient plant, growers have been able to successfully obtain buds from marijuana plants grown with only a skylight.

Sunlight encourages leaf and stem production, which in turn enables the cannabis plant to retain more sunlight, ultimately leading to more growth, larger yield and better weed. If your cannabis plants don’t receive adequate sunlight, no amount of soil and water preparation will compensate for this crucial deficiency.  Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about growing marijuana plants outdoors.

While light is necessary for growth, it is darkness that actually triggers flowering in mature marijuana plants. Once a mature plant receives a certain minimum amount of uninterrupted darkness for a week or so, this signals to the plant that the growing season has ended. The mature marijuana plant will begin to convert its energy from growing to flowering. This is why it is best to grow your marijuana plants as early in the spring as possible so that they receive the maximum amount of light, and can therefore spend most of their life cycle growing.

It is best to try and plant in a spot where your marijuana plants will receive sunlight for the longest possible period of time. Midway through the growing season, when the days are longest, the sun can be shining for 12 or more hours a day. Your goal is to find a location such as a clearing, free of trees or other obstacles that could prevent your plant’s leaves from capturing the sun’s rays and using them to power growth.

South-facing sites are usually the best in the northern hemisphere and vice versa for those in the southern hemisphere. This may not be possible for everyone due to other concerns like security or perhaps access to water. In that case make sure your cannabis plant receives at least five hours of direct sunlight and five hours of indirect sunlight each day. If you must choose between morning sun and afternoon sun then the consensus is that morning sun is best for growth.

Some northern marijuana growers experience a different problem: darkness plays a large factor in northern regions. Since the nights are short, the marijuana plants may not have enough time to flower before autumn sets in and, with it, the first frost. For these growers, being able to simulate a longer night to trigger flowering may be necessary. In this case a greenhouse or other enclosure may be the only way to grow outside. Please note that the darkness must be total as any light the marijuana plants receive, even if only briefly, will stall flowering and restart vegetative growth.

Cannabis growers near the equator or in other southerly places with long periods of darkness (more than ten hours for consecutive nights) may find that their cannabis plants flower too soon. This is a lot easier to deal with since shining light is always easier than withholding.

Pharmacist urges county to prepare for medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 9th 2014 by THCFinder
pharmacist-medical-marijuana
Brevard County commissioners want to know how they can handle issues related to medical marijuana dispensaries, with a focus on zoning approaches for such facilities.
 
After hearing Tuesday from three speakers discussing the issue, commissioners asked county planning and development officials to do the research and report back to the commission.
 
The issue came before the commission after Satellite Beach pharmacist Eric Luzar made a citizen’s request to put it on the agenda.
 
Luzar is a founder, along with other Florida pharmacists, of Sunrise Compassionate Care, which is considering getting involved in medical marijuana dispensaries should voters in November approve the medicinal use of pot,as well as related to a recently passed state law.
 
Luzar said he and pharmacists from Fort Lauderdale, Naples and St. Petersburg have formed a business venture to open medical marijuana dispensaries around the state, if permitted by state regulations. Locally, he said, potential sites could be on Merritt Island and in Palm Bay.
 
Luzar told commissioners he believes such dispensaries should have pharmacists involved in dispensing the marijuana.
 
Additionally, he said, the County Commission needs to decide how it wants to set up zoning rules for such dispensaries, such as hours of operation; restrictions on on-site consumption; how far away they should be from schools, churches or residentially zoned property.
 
Initially, the state will have dispensaries tied to a recently passed law allowing the use of a special strain of marijuana that is supposed to eliminate or dramatically reduce life-threatening seizures in children with severe epilepsy. The law also allows patients who suffer from severe muscle spasms or cancer to be put on a “compassionate-use registry” for the product, as long as their doctors approve.
 
Florida’s law, known as the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014, restricts legal marijuana to strains that are low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD.
 
The bill allows physicians to start ordering this marijuana for medical use by their eligible patients on Jan. 1.
