      After the legalization of marijuana in Michigan, some patients are thinking they could stop paying the state $100 for the special mmp card , and just use the recreational marijuana law to grow their medicine.
      A patient with a registered card can use the ultimate defense and immunity to avoid a driving under the influence charge.
      Only adults 21 or over are protected by the new legalization law, but no one yet knows how the new law will affect driving privileges.
      Is the zero tolerance of THC in your blood law still in effect for adult use marijuana ? 
      The new law is similarly worded to the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.
      Whereas the MMMA says
      While the meaning of "under the influence" was not decided within the MMMA until 2012, with People v Koon, that was 4 years of police arresting patients for driving with marijuana in their blood.
      The court in People v Koon came to the conclusion:
      Ignoring that for a minute, the Michigan State Police have been tasked with sampling saliva during road side stops for a task force on marijuana driving. The task force was created in order to find a nanogram limit for THC in blood, even though 50 years of scientific research on the subject has consistently said marijuana does not affect driving.

      So my advice is, if you are a patient, keep the patient card active until the courts either give up on all marijuana issues, or at least this driving issue , or it is decided by the Michigan Supreme Court.
       
      Basically, until non-patients get a similar "People v Koon" ruling from the Michigan Supreme Court, it is advised that any patients keep their cards to protect them fully under the MMMA.
      "Don't be the first person to test this in court."

    Medical Marijuana Strain For Pain

    I live 9 miles from a dispensary in Morenci so I am hoping it will be similar to the one you recommended. 1 quick question, when I smoked in the past I sucked in hard and held it for as long as I could, would that have caused the light headedness and the spins? I will be using a vaporizer and edibles & in my research , read a strain high in cbc may be a good choice to combat negative THC effects I may have. Thanks so much for your time. I have a journal ready to keep track of everything per your great advice.

  4. Doesn't well water need additives? I have only used city water so not real familiar with using well water also its not unusual to see yellowing leaves during flowering each strain is different but ive ran some strains that started dropping leaves around week 3 but its something all plants do . The number one thing you need to know about growing cannabis is relax and dont stress out or panic .

    Dirt fell apart while tranplanting?

    Thanks! I appreciate it. Usually never had a problem but i think i let this one get too dry before transplanting. Really looking forward to the fire og so i was pretty bummed when it happened. as i said, the pant did not detach itself from the roots so hopefully ll will be good!
  6. just bought one! my well water is all about 6.5 - 7.0

  9. Yep, he not only contradicts himself many times but cherry picks extensively. Very frustrating to listen to. On the other hand, I didn't think that Dr Hart was an adequate advocate for the extensive evidence regarding the medical benefits of cannabis. He kept referring back to CBD which is not that controversial in the medical debate.
  10. Check the PH of the water going into the soil. We sometimes get lax on checking the ph of the water and it will cause problems. A cheap ph kit is $10 or so.

    Dirt fell apart while tranplanting?

    should be fine. Be sure to bury the root ball a little deeper than it was in previous pot. I try to make the dirt level at least 1-2" higher on the stem each transplant. Tip. Always water them before transplanting so soil is moist and roots will remain entact.

    Can anyone tell me is marijuana is legal in all the states of the USA?
  14. great video. that berenson guy is a making whoopee idiot.
  15. ok thanks for all the help! im wondering if should start giving them more? I have 8 plants into about a week flowering and the leaves are starting to get some yellow spots and and there are a few that the leaves are turning yellow already? Was thinking maybe cause i was only giving them half nutrients so far?
  16. I give my flowering ladys all she can handle and only back off if I notice nute burn which to this point has never happened I feed one day then next time they need feeding I give them water only .
  17. yeah. great way to go about it. Better to have more smaller feedings than less larger ones.
  18. Been doing alot of research that says you should only start by giving your plants HALF of nutrients that the label suggests? Is this true? Thanks!
  19. Hello. Im a newbie. Have transplanted before with no problem, HOWEVER, this time the soil was way too dry and fell apart when transplanting a fire og and was flopping around. BUT it seemed like it was STILL ATTACHED! So, my questions is simple, will it survive? thanks!

  21. Cannabis has helped me. I have issues with my spine and had the same Fentanyl, Norco, Dilauded route. The cannabis is much easier on your system and you don't have to worry about addiction. If you got the spins while using it in the past I would guess that you used it in conjunction with alcohol. By itself it would take a large dose to do that. Start out with a low dose. Smoking or vaping is the easiest to control. Take a couple hits and wait for it to take effect then go from there. Be careful using edibles that's where most newbies get into trouble. It sometimes takes a couple of hours to hit so if you don't feel anything then wait a little longer. There's a lot of information available so do some reading and learn as much as you can.

    Medical Marijuana Strain For Pain

    Dispo in Bay City will help you with that. They understand patients and their needs. Then you will have to do a trial and error. keep track of your results, take notes. Soon you will be an expert on your needs. It's not too bad if your do it systematically with a good source.
  24. Hi! I came here in search of a forum to meet others that are on the same medical marijuana "journey". I will be getting my card next week & I have NO idea what to expect from the Dr, the dispensary the future... I am a chronic pain patient tired of being treated as an addict by pain mngt Dr's. I was on Fentanyl 50mcg patches, changed every other day for 9 years with success. When the "opiod"crisis started I lost access to my meds when the Dr thought his liability outweighed my benefit. The last 2 years I have been on Narco 7 3x day, Have had 2 spinal ablation and 8 injections in my neck and back. I got tired of monthly urine tests and paying thousands of dollars for minimal relief. Being raised in the Anti-marijuana era & only having a few experiences with illegal marijuana at friends houses or parties that didn't go well. (The Spins, passing out) I am afraid of what I am getting into. My biggest fear is that I will hate it. There is no refund on this, I am not wealthy. If anyone else has felt the same way I would love to hear how you are doing on the medication. Thanks,C

    KIVA

    Exactly why I always put it in a gel capsule. You can't taste it. It all goes to the same place at the same time, the stomach. Totally repeatable and controllable. No repeats because it tastes great and you gotta have some more. There's no use for making cannabis into candy. That puts cannabis oil into a position to be used incorrectly and abused knowingly or unknowingly. It's a very bad thing for medicine and anything else you should be keeping away from children and/or adults that can't handle keeping their dosage straight and consistent. We have all seen industries using bad packaging and misconstrued concoctions that invite trouble from everyone especially the opposition. Cannabis doesn't need to go there too but it has, regrettably. It's just plain ignorant at this point.

    Medical Marijuana Strain For Pain

    But where does someone start? I understand people may react differently but I read not to trust the dispensaries to know what to 'prescribe. I have tried researching and have an idea but it would be nice to find a place for people with the same problems to compare notes. Does the name of the product vary from grower to grower? Do I buy solely on sativa/indica or hybrid Percentages ?

    I know the process Dispo goes through to acquire their cannabis oil. First off it gets tested. So it would be consistent, you know what you are buying. I haven't purchased any cannabis oil anywhere. Just looking and asking so I know what's out there for patients.

    Funny you should mention that. The "good" RSO, I did get from Dispo in Bay City. I've gotten RSO from Roots and Elite Wellness, and those have varied (Dispo was out of RSO at the time). I think they have restocked. Have you found that their RSO is pretty consistent? Mel
