Seeds vs Clones

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, March, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
These days it seems Cannabis growers only talk about using clones. A clone is a cutting from a ‘mother plant’ and according to Wikipedia any organism whose genetic information is identical to that of a parent organism from which it was created . Many medical marijuana dispensaries offer clones for sale as a service to their patients.  The advantages would seem obvious, you know what strain it is, what you can expect for yield and strength. And for an indoor grower it shortens the entire cycle by a month or more.
 
However there are other growers that rarely use clones if at all. The anti-clone argument goes like this: Annual plants like cannabis were never “designed” to be maintained for years and years in order to maintain “clone only” varieties. Because these plants do not live for more than a year in natural conditions, perpetually fighting off environmental stresses, diseases and insects weakens the “vigor” of the genetics. The original plant from seed is capable of yielding more than a cloned offspring- the difference in yield only increases with time.
 
Cannabis plants grown from seed produce a Tap Root, cloned plants simply cannot-they produce a fibrous root system only. The Tap Root is a survival advantage in nature, as it is in any growing condition. A tap root not only more firmly anchors the plant down for better support, it is capable of driving downward to great depths in search of water and nutrients; an immeasurable advantage when growing outdoor crops in hot and dry conditions.
 
Indoor growers will tend to use clones more than outdoor growers for those reasons. Another advantage to seeds is a legal and practical one.

Is medical marijuana just a few votes from passage in the Illinois state House?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
The sponsor of an Illinois medical marijuana bill said it is “one or two” votes short of passage in the state House, according to a report by the Pekin Times.
 
State Representative Lou Lang, a Democrat from Skokie, has proposed a four-year pilot program with limits on how much marijuana a patient could purchase every two weeks, and which specifies just a few conditions eligible for such treatment, the Times said. Opponents told the Times they still have strong concerns about the bill, particularly that the upper limit on marijuana might be too high, and that law enforcement does not have adequate means of assessing whether a driver with a medical marijuana prescription is too impaired to drive.
 
The Huffington Post reported that the legislation would allow for 66 licensed dispensaries in the state, and noted that the state Senate has approved similar bills in the past.

San Diego mayor OK with some marijuana vending machines

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 27th 2013 by THCFinder
The San Diego mayor’s office accepts the use of some marijuana vending machines, according to a major manufacturer of the drug-dispensing devices.
 
Mayor Bob Filner proposed banning marijuana vending machines earlier this month after Medbox Inc. announced it obtained leases to put the machines in up to 30 locations around the city.
 
In a statement released Tuesday, Medbox said an attorney working on behalf of the mayor’s office had clarified that only certain types automated dispensing machines would be prohibited.
 
“The Mayor’s opposition is to ‘vending machines’ that do not have a human element of security,” the attorney told Medbox. “The Medbox technology is a device that goes behind the counter to provide the dispensary owner additional inventory control and oversight, and in the office’s opinion, is not a vending machine and would not be banned by the proposed City ordinance.”

Wall Street sees opportunity in marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, March, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
Washington, D.C., and 18 states, including California, have already legalized medical marijuana; there are formal measures pending in 10 additional states, according to the National Cannabis Industry Assn.
 
Colorado and Washington legalized recreational marijuana use in November. In addition, a measure allowing "adult use" of pot has been proposed in Maryland, according to the association's tally. Various bills to legalize marijuana and hemp have been proposed in Congress too.
 
Although pot remains contraband under federal law, some entrepreneurs see marijuana heading down the same path as Prohibition, which banned the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcohol from 1920 until it was repealed in 1933.
 
"More and more people see the inevitability," said Brendan Kennedy, chief executive of the Seattle private equity firm Privateer Holdings, which targets cannabis-focused start-ups. "They see that the Berlin Wall of cannabis prohibition is going to come down."
