    all cannabis flower will develop some terpene profile to protect itself... swag or mids either by over processing ( Air) or just poor soil conditions ( no Mica to form terpenes) has low terpene content

    seedless bud has a toxin in the sheath where the seed would be... I suppose the enzymes in there used to make the seed have nothing to do so they oxidize instead when no pollen is present .

    What really amused me when I read this story about the yeast, one of the big negatives of growing plants which they were pushing was how allegedly 3% of ccalifornia's Energy supply goes towards cultivation.

    As if, this is a bad thing. While I am personally glad that at least 3% of the electricity goes towards a worthy and proper cause. :nod:

    Marijuana legalization is winning the 2020 Democratic primaries

    Last week, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), who’s running for president, reintroduced the Marijuana Justice Act, which he first introduced in 2017.

    Several Democratic candidates have signed on as co-sponsors for the Marijuana Justice Act: Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) hasn’t signed on, but she said she supports legalizing marijuana.

    ========================================================================

    As of 2019, Legal Cannabis Has Created 211,000 Full-Time Jobs in America

    Legal cannabis is currently the greatest job-creation machine in America. The cannabis workforce increased 21% in 2017. It gained another 44% in 2018. We expect at least another 20% growth in jobs in 2019. That would represent a 110% growth in cannabis jobs in just three years.

    It ain't "legal" until the fat lady sings:

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...ance-said-to-get-pentagon-review-over-pot-use

    The Pentagon is reviewing Elon Musk’s federal security clearance following the billionaire’s marijuana toke on a California comedian’s podcast in September, according to a U.S. official.

    Musk has refiled his SF-86 security form, which requires a federal employee or contractor seeking a clearance to acknowledge any illegal drug use over the previous seven years, according to the official, who asked not to be identified. The entrepreneur has a secret-level clearance because of his role as founder and CEO of Space Exploration Technologies Corp., which is certified to launch military spy satellites....​

    (Irish) Whiskey is booming, but exporters have been warned of an 'over-dependence' on US sales


    A new report suggests cannabis could upset the drinks market in the coming years.

    "THE IRISH WHISKEY sector has been warned that it is too reliant on the US market – while alcohol producers as a whole should brace for future disruption from the legalised cannabis trade in the States."

    "Bord Bia identified cannabis, which has been legalised in several US states, as an ingredient that has the potential to “disrupt the alcohol category globally, both as a substitute and as an alternative product ingredient”.

    But Callan said the substance only represents a “tiny market” right now and could ultimately create opportunities for drinks companies."

    not the brightest move in the world, but he was also massively sleep deprived... might well have felt drunk... but if they are ignorant enough to hold his feet to the fire over this, in a publicly published forum that all can decide for themselves, let 'em cut off their own noses :( (I grew up in a DOD/Aerospace household, I remember them coming to my Dad and telling him 'his daughter shouldn't be meeting an avowed socialist' (my sister met our elderly adopted grandfather at his senior center for lunch in L.A.).
    And then we've got 45's family :( Some folks are lying sacks, and his children clearly have followed suit.
    Even in the 70's and 80's, Ivanka's dude would have been labeled the village idiot, and the calls would start where they jailed him in a secured environment.
    THIS is how far we have fallen :(

    well at least Vegas will have some of those boring machines running for some time, will make folks topside EVER so happy!

    @blackstone I thought they were increasing the number of distillers to increase tourism, but they aren't all wrong, gotta watch the WHOLE market. If they are smart, they have already been at work on Hemp products to blend with other liquor, etc.

    Do you have any reason to think this is not just the standard practice of the Government rather than some nefarious Trump plot?

    If you read about the issue at all you know that ALL the experts think this would be the usual course and MOST feel Musk SHOULD get his clearance yanked. The few I've read who think not believe his status of CEO of an industry so important to the Government that all he need do is change his 86 to reflect the use and he should be fine after another investigation. But, even those (At least the one's I've read.) who think he might keep his clearance seem to say that without special circumstances that cause an exception, he'd be done.

    This is the work of the bureaucrats that control the Government. At some point, Trump can step in and stop the process if he wants. If the only people who think that is a good idea hate him to the point of not changing their minds on anything he does, I don't think his reptile brain (That, arguably, takes up his whole noggin.) is going to think it a good thing. Especially when the haters think it is obstruction when he wanders into the bureaucrat zone already.

    Thanks for the link there, Looney2nz...still a fail for NORML to call for support, but not link their call *to* the bill.

    what the Fuck is NORML going to do when we go back to cannabis ( cannabaceae ) as the actual plant name instead of the Hi-Jacked " maijuana / marihuana) political plant wording... to politics and NORML the plant is marijuana and it's cannabis to everyone else

    you know what's utterly ironic in this whole scenerio?

    @C No Ego Keep the name NORML should keep it in conversation, especially educating people Harry Ainslinger, etc. William Randolph Hearst and his yellow journalism (made up lies whole on the spot), his racist underpinnings of the 'black jazz musicians use it' (guess what, so did some of the white musicians!), then smearing Mexicans (the origins of racist marijuana). At least they laid claim to 'we want to LEGALIZE it, not just make it 'accessible'... and in many ways they are right.

    Americans for Safe Access... didn't really do much, they were itching so badly to get on Facebook and Twitter, and no amount of people worried about their privacy would dissuade them :(

    There was also the Drug Police Alliance - http://www.drugpolicy.org/, and Students for Sensible Drug Policies, https://ssdp.org/. I'll have to rebuild my list, it was on the laptop that took a big stinky one.

    @ClearBlueLou I WISH they'd use Cannabis and 'varietals' (rather than strains that sound like crazy virii.)
    Keeping the old NORML name and explanation of it's roots, while using Cannabis and Varietals should allow for educating how we got here from 1937, with a brief break to support WWII, especially NAVY ships, lots of canvas and hemp rope.

    At one point when I was the main MAIN moderator, I put up a letter I'd sent to ALL the medical cannabis and legalization folks and pled with them to form a collaborating council to oversee all study methodolgies.
    Some great ideas, but not ONE OF THESE organizations ever said a word, just crickets, and folks paranoid about working smarter, not harder :(. I had James Anthony take a look at it, and he was HELL YEAH!, so I sent it out a couple times weeks apart. more crickets. So much more could be accomplished with staff and volunteers from the various operations collaborating and assembling some good reports, and disputing things like the California Police Chief's association publications on pot going back a number of years.
    Seemed no one had the stomach for a fight... argh! :(

    ASA didn't bring in enough money to wage much in the way of legal battles...
    They held their meetings simultaneously with NORML in my areas, they didn't grab dues or anything for either group in a regular fashion.

    I have no idea what they do in these meetings of late, I can't get out to attend in any case. It's not like there's a lack of territory to work on these Prop64 laws. But ya gotta start somewhere.
    Let's fight these idiotic bastards who're forcing cancer patients to eat 7x the amount of sugar they should be :( I can make a 500mg to 750mg dose, You'll need around 50G, put water on a double boiler and add the amount of concentrate to break down and liquify in the oil in the top of the double boiler.
    , mix the concentrate in a good oil, Peanut if you can tolerate it.
    I've used sunflower oil too.
    Then you can use a single or double beater hand mixer to blend the oil as thoroughly as possible
    then pour it the pan with the oven pre-heated and calibrate, once it's dead on, throw the brownies in and start timers to watch it, after it's cooled quite a bit, you'll have to cut slow and carefully... you don't want to be impatient, let things cool off and firm up your slices will be straighter then.

    Just LOOK at the resources Missouri deems necessary when they get a "report" of someone smoking marijuana.

    Oh, it's in a hospital and they're searching a stage IV patient.

    She ain't singing...

    @looney2nz what a post man ! I want to add maybe consider coconut oil instead of sunflower, peanut as coconut oil is a mono unsaturated oil with more space available in the carbons to absorb cannabinods.

    this " Endocannabinoids, which are structurally similar to marijuana, are known to help regulate sexual function.3 "
    what ? they went that far to make the connection yet still insist on marijuana to describe the plant. even names identifying the similarity like cannabinoid and cannabis cannot even sway that Shit man . just one of my issues when looking over research.
    just the fact that NIDA controls the phrase marijuana as ' the smoke of cannabis sativa L ". that is basically taking an entire plant species and breaking it down to smoke and saying that is the plant still ??? TheFuck?

    I'll add here too in relation to that article... reproductive system is the second largest accumulation of cells with cannabinoid receptors second to the brain...

    So cannabis makes sex better for women. Without a study to confirm I've known this for over 4 decades. May I add........
    DUH! and what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
