Farmers Turning Vineyards into Cannabis Grows

In Oregon and California, farmers growing grapes are starting to grow cannabis as well.  Since they have similar growing requirements, similar seasons, require irrigation and land that is ready to grow, the transition isn’t that hard.

Oregon has already legalized marijuana sales and consumption, and Californians will enjoy legalization of recreational cannabis next year.  So many farmers are planning ahead to get a jump on the latest trend in agriculture.

Farmers will have to compete with indoor grows and many will opt for more secure grow ops in greenhouses. Success will depend upon how the marketplace develops. … Continue reading

Cannabis Revitalizes Brain in Older Mice

A new scientific study on the effects of cannabis on mice of varying ages showed that mature and older mice exhibited vastly improved memory and cognitive abilities when given a daily dose of cannabis extract.  The change was so drastic, the older mice performed as well as drug-free young mice in memory tests.

Unexpectedly, younger mice who were given the same dose, performed worse on the same tests than the older mice who were given cannabis.

“These results reveal a profound, long-lasting improvement of cognitive performance resulting from a low dose of THC treatment in mature and old animals,” the scientists write. The boost in brain function was linked to an apparent restoration of gene expression in the brain to more youthful levels.

Cannabis Unites Left and Right

It seems marijuana can unite us after all!

A May Day protest in Seattle had a different flavor when anti-Trump/anti-fascist protesters lit up a few joints with Trump supporters and for a brief moment cannabis helped them transcended their political differences.

California: First Cannabis Sanctuary State?

Will California become the first Cannabis Sanctuary State?

California Assembly Bill 1578 will do just that.  Similar to Immigration Sanctuary cities like San Francisco and New York, which have passed legislation protecting immigrants from Federal agents seeking to round up and deport illegal aliens, this bill would do the same for marijuana growers and consumers.

In California, a marijuana grower can be perfectly legal, yet local police, with Federal aid, can still come and destroy a crop, confiscate all cannabis found, arrest and convict the grower.  Same is true of the hundreds of medical (and soon recreational) dispensaries… Continue reading

    Isn’t this a kick in the butt. Now marijuana has potential as a painkiller (as such it would have medical value). All involved in keeping a lid on its use for the last 8 decades should be shamed for all the suffering (and possible deaths) they may have caused. Better yet, lock them up and […]
