American cannabis or Mexican cannabis, will the real cannabis please stand up? Seriously, do you know which is which? Well, neither do we, however, we are told there is a distinct difference and it is all started on how it is raised. As an example many drug cartels will hire runners to do their dirty work. Meaning they will hire migrant workers who are basically insolvent or poor people who really just need a job. The migrant worker will clear out a swatch of land and dig what are called “corn rows” in effort to raise cannabis. This is the favorite way the Mexican farmer plants his/her garden, you might call it the old fashion traditional way. The soil may be rich or it may have a lack of nutrients. The migrant worker will undoubtedly use a mix of chemicals which mostly are miracle grow type fertilizers in effort to get the cannabis to spring up quickly. There is not much wrong with using fertilizers but it truly depends on what type you are using, especially with cannabis. Now then, here is the part that is scary. Water is normally, the problem as the plants must have a certain amount of water daily…they should not be deprived. A lot of times the cannabis is over fertilized and this causes the plant to duplicate in mass but also calls for a different level of potency and it will certainly attract bug mites. The mites will eat at the leaves and normally the migrant worker will harvest it regardless. This means the bug mites will be in your cannabis dead. Sounds kind of sick to me, but I truly think the lack of education is the problem here. Of course, I am merely generalizing as I am sure there are migrant workers out there growing cannabis whom are much more intelligent than I.
Moving on, the American cannabis grower is a bit different. Most will not clear a patch of land to plant the seeds in. Instead they will use pots for outdoor grows in which they can control and cultivate the plants in a better environment. An irrigation system is normally set in motion where the cannabis receives regular doses of water to ensure its over all growth level. Americans appear to be more health conscious when it comes to grooming and taking care of cannabis. Really not sure why, however, I think it is mostly because they are probably the owners of the grow vs. the migrant workers are merely working for the cartels. Haven’t seen many Americans toting firearms to protect their crops but just about every outdoor grown by the cartels seem to have heavily armed people guarding the stash. Americans seem to be more methodical grower and seem to plan out not only their garden but what they are going to do to marker their product once harvest time comes. I say this because, the migrant workers only wants to be paid in the end and they have no idea where the cannabis goes or to whom. American growers on the other hand seem to see things to the end of the line. Americans seem to foster growing cannabis as an honest living. The migrant worker does it for present day survival.
Not sure where I am going with this, but it certainly is not a race thing. I basically am looking at some of the differences here and if there is one thing I am interested in that is education. When it comes to growing cannabis there are many different ways of doing so and by many different types of people as well. Staying focused here the Mexicans are selling underground marijuana to American medical marijuana dispensaries since they give such a good deal. So then, if this is the case, what about the American grower? The American grower cannot compete when it comes right down to it, or can they? Perhaps, but if we look at the bottom line here and that is what is the quality of the cannabis like after the grow? This should be important to everyone down the line. I write on these issues as they come up daily and we need to take a look what the other guy is doing so we all stay safe. Here is a quick bit of what I think. I think you can poke a hole in the dirt in your back yard, place a cannabis seed in the hole and feed it some water. Yes, water only! Several days may go by and whoop…whoop! There you have it a baby seedling and once it starts to grow you can continue to give it water, no need to give it fertilizers, just give it water. You see my friends, why give something natural any fertilizers? There is really no need, just give it water and it will grow. We keep listening to people who have no idea what the heck they are talking about most of the time….we need to get back to the basics as Americans….we can grow our own gardens with tomatoes, carrots, radish, squash….but do we need to put fertlyizers with chemicals on our food. The FOOD we EAT? You tell me my friends….would you?
Marijuana Dispensaries now in competition! Yes, it is true there are many marijuana dispensaries which are fighting to stay on top by advertising on WeedMaps.com, however, is WeedMaps.com losing control? Well, there are many other marijuana mapping sites available now, so as it looks WeedMaps.com is losing business to other marijuana directories. For a long time now, WeedMaps.com has had the monopoly when it comes to the advertising king for marijuana advertisement. WeedMaps.com charges an exorbitant amount of money for a mere listing and that really adds up at the end of the year when looking at the good ole profit margin. Many marijuana dispensaries are already established and really do not even need WeedMaps.com anymore as they have an established customer base or patient base.
Seems as though, the thought of a medical marijuana dispensary was suppose to be for a medical patient to have a location where he/she could go and purchase medical prescribed marijuana without fear of legalities. WeedMaps.com has cashed in on the medical marijuana industry as a whole. Has WeedMaps.com given back to the community? We truly cannot answer yes or no. But this article is not to bag on WeedMaps.com and to let it be known we consider them a friendly within the industry. But here is the crux of the problem. Medical marijuana dispensaries are plentiful now and with online delivery services popping up everywhere, it is hurting the profits of the medical marijuana storefronts. Plus, speaking about weed delivery there are plenty to choose from such as:
Now then, this is to just name a few…it took me 2 minutes to pull the websites off the internet. So, my thoughts with all these directories and dispensaries in competition with one another who comes out the winner and or loser? Again, we are not sure. The patient is the first who comes to mind as they will certainly get the good deals. On the other hand the deliveries & dispensaries will lose profits and if this is the case, will we start to see corruption? Again, who knows for sure…but if you hide-n-watch I am sure you will agree there will be upcoming changes within the industry. Will the cartels become even stronger because of this upcoming battle? Not sure about that either. There is merit in what I am saying here and if you see it as I do, I think there were a few in the industry who lucked out and profited big time from dispatching marijuana to the homes of Americans abroad. You and I will never stop the sale of marijuana and or control the prices for the most part. I would ask you consider the patient who is caught in the middle. We should definitely be compassionate for them and offer them assistance as they are the true pioneers of the medical marijuana movement.
I am sure a lot of you have questions about this issue but not all questions can be answered. We can only bring the latest streaming news stories… It is a feeling in the industry where people have mixed profit with patients. Reminds me of oil & water, they do not mix well. Medical marijuana dispensaries will never go away and neither will people and or patients. It is very important we work in peace and harmony together to accomplish the same mission and that is marijuana reform and to abolish prohibition as we know it today. We are Americans, we are strong and proud and never give up. As an American, ask you my friends are we going to turn this into a business or are we going to focus and end marijuana prohibition? *Again, I am not sure……

The top 5 ways to smoke cannabis are nothing new but you might be surprised to know which one of the newest craze ways to smoke actually is. Here are the top 5 ways to smoke cannabis in order:
Now then, you may say well that is nothing new! Actually, what we are speaking of here is the changes we have seen in the way people smoke cannabis in today’s world versus the old traditional way. Yes, more people are using vaporizers to smoke cannabis, believing it is much safer than directly inhaling smoke. A vaporize heats cannabis just below combustion, so you enjoy a strong high without harsh heat or toxic smoke. Those who have bongs enjoy the seamless effort into deep inhaling for maximum results. Pipe users are and have always said the pipe is very affordable and handy to carry around, thus, using a pipe to smoke cannabis is something of convenience. On the lower level, people are using the stone to pass after taking a hit to reuse and filter to a friend. Last is the ole Zig-Zag papers or rolling papers. A lot of people say they do not want to pay for the rolling papers plus they do not like inhaling paper products which a lot of people believe cause cancer. Cannabis education is on the forefront of the internet today, where you can find all the new top ways to smoke marijuana.
Top 5 ways to smoke cannabis are refutable as some may say well, “I only consume cannabis through edible treats.” While this may hold true, most people between 18-45 smoke cannabis by at least 4 of the ways listed above. People who are 45-78 are using methods such as edibles in effort to make sure they do not have any respiratory issues. Older adults are consuming cannabis edibles for ailments such as arthritis, cancer, glaucoma to name a few. So, whether you use one of the top 5 methods we listed or you are eating candy treats, we would love to hear from you. Please list your favorite way of consuming cannabis.
Hawaii Senators approve marijuana law! Yes! Hawaii Senators have agreed to approve a new marijuana law and make possession of less than one ounce of marijuana a civil fine versus a criminal fine. This is very good news! Of course, the Honolulu Police disagree…. stating out of 30,000 arrests last year only 19 of them were for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Well, Legalize.co finds it pretty questionable if Honolulu Police actually made that many arrests especially if the arrests were drug related. After all, Honolulu is not that populated and to make that many drug arrests or otherwise would be astronomical. Our contentions are if they only made 19 misdemeanor possession of marijuana less than one ounce arrests…then that is pretty weak. Obviously, they do not have a wide spread problem with people committing drug crimes. Or, are the Honolulu Police lying? We are not sure… but the senators were correct when they decided to approve marijuana law as a civil penalty.
So then, by changing the law it would be a burden on the police as people could give a fake name and there would be no recourse by the police to enforce a civil penalty vs. criminal penalty. Our position, is most likely people lie to the police not only in Honolulu but everywhere else in the world. People are people and everyone is different…. and all come from different walks of life….thus, we all make our own independent decisions in life no matter if we lie to the police or not. But there is at least one Senator who has made his voice known, “Smoking marijuana is still illegal,” said Sen. Clayton Hee, (D) Kaneohe, Laie, Waialua. Sen. Clayton explains, according to a study, a savings of 9 million dollars would be saved not prosecuting misdemeanor possession of marijuana arrests. Instead, a 1,000 dollar civil penalty would be assessed to each person found in possession of less than one ounce of marijuana. Here is a tip, if you are charged with just over an ounce of marijuana, keep in mind if the marijuana is not dry….it contains water and when court rolls around do not be in such a hurry to plead to a heavier crime when the water will dissipate and the leaves will dry up and make it far less than an ounce. Marijuana law is actually really easy to defend in so many ways, the problem is there are only so many attorneys who specialize in marijuana law. Marijuana law is mostly based on active or constructive possession and how much is actually being possessed. Most police officers want the felony charge and are not to excited by a worthless misdemeanor.
Is Mexico’s top drug lord, Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman dead? It was reported that he may be dead after a fierce shootout in the deep jungles of Mexico City. The firefights involved Mexican drug traffickers and either a rival gang or Guatemalan military forces, reports from the scene said. The shooting took place in the vast Peten region where Mexican traffickers set up their drug operation in the trenches to avoid exposure of their illegal operation and murderous rampage. There is no actual accounting of who was killed or how many from either side, however, sources say it was a vicious fight and perhaps something you would have experienced if you were in the deep jungles with swamp rice patties… of the Vietnam war in the early seventies. The smell of blood in the air with mosquitos buzzing around in the stench of the thick humid air.
Chapo is reported to rule the oldest, “Sinola” drug cartel in the Country of Mexico. And considered the most vicious murdering cowards on the face of the earth. After all, anyone could probably kill someone in the deep woods of the jungle and get away with it. Chapo is nothing more than a punk drug dealer who is weak….. and merely has control based on his wealth collected over the years from the sales of illegal drug sales, particularly cocaine and heroin. He has been a fugitive from justice since he escaped from a maximum-security prison in 2001, supposedly by hiding in a laundry cart, however, this has never been confirmed. Most likely he paid off some corrupt guards who freed him for some chump change. Guzman has routinely been listed by Forbes magazine as among the world’s richest people in the world.
His latest wife, Emma Coronel, 22-year-old beauty queen, recently gave birth to twin girls in the Los Angeles area. Yes, that is correct…she lives in Los Angeles! It is nuts but I guess, he is probably dead so she is probably broke with two young babies…how terrible…does she tell her kids her daddy was a murdering drug dealer who was killed in somewhere in the deep jungles of Mexico, trying to shoot it out with who knows who? U.S. and Mexican authorities have a $5-million-plus bounty on Chapo’s head. The search for Chapo has reached near mythic proportions, with reported sightings and Hollywood-style near-missed captures. The Guatemalan newspaper Prensa Libre quoted that country’s interior minister, Mauricio Lopez Bonilla, as saying that forensic teams were traveling to the location to attempt to identify any dead and determine whether Chapo was among them.
The Associated Press quoted an Interior Ministry spokeswoman as saying one of the dead apparently resembled Chapo. But was it really Joaquin Chapo Guzman? “We cannot say it with certainty, but it might be him,” Lopez said, according to Prensa Libre. The capture or killing of Chapo has long been the Holy Grail of the Mexican drug war, akin to eliminating an Al Capone or a John Dillinger. His demise could throw the Sinaloa cartel, which has hundreds of cells in California and other parts of the United States, into disarray, although it is also likely that the savvy businessman has established a clear line of succession. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, asked as he left an event whether Guzman had been killed in the gun battle, said he was in contact with Guatemalan authorities to establish the identities of the dead. “We still don’t have any information,” he said. Prensa Libre said at least three people were killed in the skirmish, which it described as a clash between rival drug gangs.

When we take a look at history we can clearly see where the changes came about when the federal government banned hemp in the United States of America. Our forefathers were farmers who knew what worked in that given time and what happened?
