Do LED Marijuana Grow Lights Work Better Than Other Grow Lights?
Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
LED grow lights for your marijuana garden seem to have been popping up a lot lately in ads and articles. I only know one person that has actually used LED lights for their marijuana garden. It seems like LED grow lights are so much more expensive than traditional grow lights, which is why I think a lot of people haven’t used them. My friend that used an LED grow light setup on his marijuana garden told me that it worked great for the veg stage, but that it wasn’t as effective during the bloom stage.
He also pointed out that with such a high price tag (he got his for free somehow), it was hard for him to recommend using LED lights instead of other lights until the price was reduced significantly. Below is a video that High Times just put out in regards to LED grow lights. If you have used one before, or have an opinion on the matter, please leave comments in the comments section:

Marijuana Magazines Scrutinized In Colorado
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, May, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
DENVER -- Marijuana magazines are under scrutiny in Colorado, where lawmakers might require stores to put them behind the counter.
The unusual provision to treat pot magazines like pornography was considered Thursday in a Senate committee. If approved, the provision would make Colorado the first state to require stores that allow entry to shoppers under age 21 to place pot magazines behind the counter.
"It's analogous to the pornography example," said Rep. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs and sponsor of the magazine amendment.
The magazine restriction faced long odds in the Legislature, though. Gardner's magazine limitation was added in a late-night amendment last week and was expected to be removed by Democratic sponsors. Gardner conceded Thursday that he wouldn't be surprised if his magazine idea fails to make the final marijuana regulation bill.
A lawyer for High Times magazine called the magazine restriction "patently unconstitutional" and said there's no legal precedent for treating pictures of a drug as obscene. Lawyer David Holland said the magazine would likely sue if the provision becomes law.
"It is a content-based restriction that violates freedom of speech," Holland said.

Marijuana Legalization: Should Airplane Pilots be Allowed to Smoke?
As marijuana legalization becomes more mainstream and goes from protests to policy, decision-makers will have to figure out how and what to regulate in this burgeoning industry. Brian Milam is one of the first individuals to have a run-in with unclear marijuana laws: he was fired from his job as a pilot at Horizon Air in 2011 for failing a drug test.
The central issue should be whether or not Milam was fit to operate a plane when he failed the drug test. When marijuana is legal, how will we determine safe amounts that do not “impair judgment?” The Seattle Pi reports that Milam failed the drug test after flying a safe round trip flight from Seattle, Washington, to Redmond, Oregon. Here, we see a paradox: he piloted a plane safely for approximately two hours, claims he “never used marijuana while on duty and refrained from smoking the night before an early shift,” yet he failed his test. Would he have been fired had marijuana been legal?
Firstly, let’s look at science. The active ingredient that most drug tests screen for, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), exits the body slowly than other substances, such as alcohol or caffeine. For habitual drug users, a standard drug test can pick up traces of THC for days or even weeks after past use. A habitual user, like Milam (he claimed to use medical marijuana for back pain one to three times per week) could fail a drug test long after the effects of the marijuana, or the “high,” had worn off. As marijuana becomes legal in more states and, eventually, at the federal level, drug screenings should be read with this in mind, not exactly like an alcohol screening.

UFC's Robbie Peralta suspended for marijuana
All competitors at UFC on FUEL TV 9 were tested for performance-enhancing drugs and drugs of abuse, and one failed for the latter.
The UFC confirmed Tuesday night that featherweight Robbie Peralta was flagged for marijuana metabolites and suspended following the event, which took place April 6 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.
Peralta (16-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) dropped a unanimous decision to Akira Corassani (11-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) on the event's main-card, which aired on FUEL TV.
"The UFC organization has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents," the UFC's statement read.
Peralta is suspended six months retroactive to the event. Additionally, he has agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes and will be required to pass a drug test prior to his reinstatement, according to the statement. The negative drug test will be reported to the Association of Boxing Commissions.
