      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."

  1. Past hour
  2. Ran into a disaster powers been out since Saturday at 4:30pm spent 5 hours trying to get my pos Husky generartor fired up to no avail first thing yesterday I went to Lowes and bought a new 6500 watt unit hoping that the missing 6 hours doesnt seed me to death with hermies .
  3. Yesterday
  4. Super vigorous growth from LEDs we can harness several ways. On the aerocloner; I have found that 82 degrees in an aerocloner is better than 80. Always thought that 80 was the ceiling. If the room is cold where the aerocloner is then you have to up the temp a little. If the room is hot then lower it. I used to think it was only about the water temp regardless of room temp.
  5. Maybe when it comes to fooling yourself …… Steven king said, "We are the best at fooling ourselves". Very astute individual who understands how the mind works. I will agree that fooling ourselves can provide joy where reality bites. Sometimes necessary but not when it comes to science. In science, comparison is the tool of genius.
  6. Restorium recently posted that he got roots on new cutting in three days with plants grown under LEDs. I'll admit that was a hard one to believe. But now I've seen it myself. I took cuttings last Sunday night, and most of them had visible roots/nubs by Saturday night (6 days). I have tiny root spikes on several cuttings I took Wednesday night (3.5 days ago). The donor plants were all grown under LED since they were very small. I use an aerocloner and a 96-watt T-5 (using only 3 bulbs - so 72 watts.) I'm using RO water with a touch of Cal-Mag. (I will add some nutes in a day or so). The plants were vegged in DWC with the same nutes/additives I always use. Lighting was one 1500-Yehsense with both switches on, covering about 4' by 4'. I've been using one aerocloner or another for about 8 years and, when everything is going right, get visible roots in about 7 days. 3.5 days is unprecedented. I realize this recent occurrence is very anecdotal, but it makes me wonder if the different light during veg causes physiological differences in the plants that make them root more easily.
  7. Last week
  8. I got them transplanted this morning into 7 gallon containers, Monday they are going into bloom mode. Want to give them a couple days to acclimate to their new containers. They were fairly root bound at the bottom of their root ball. Used rooting powder on the root ball and in the hole. sprinkled lightly so they don't get burnt. They seem to be responding well to the transplant. Also, I got 2 out of the 4 clones I took from the moms to produce roots. They are in soil now in the nursery. Also purchased 2 new 1000 watt led lights. Now each plant will have their own light. I moved them to one side of the tent because it was getting difficult to water them the way I had them in the tent.
  9. Hello, I ordered seeds from: https://www.seedcellar.com/ They were mailed the same day, and I received them 2 days later. I asked the seed cellar lots of questions about their business. They were patient; very polite and professional. Pictures: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Go9RyyRg26ZW2gC6A
  10. I'll know more at harvest, which is a week or so. Skywalker is really bulking up.
  11. Hydroponics and aeroponics accelerate this process by providing nutrients directly to the roots. Hydroponics has the downside that oxygen levels have to be managed over time. Standing water, depleted oxygen, pH levels, and nutrients can trigger algae growth and fungal problems in hydroponics.
  12. I get them around the belt line. They must crawl up my pantleg. They can smell your breath. They detect CO2, smell you go down the path and wait for you or others to walk by again.
  13. Keep skin covered, use deet and inspect yourself when you come back inside. Also change and wash clothes right away if possible. When I find them, they always seem to be at the base of my neck, could just be me though
  14. Can anyone direct me to any active compassion clubs in the Oakland County? Thx
  15. When I did my side by side like you are doing my LED side grew longer and got thicker in the last couple weeks. Vigorous growth sometimes takes longer to mature fully.
  16. Top pic is Skywalker and bottom is Gorilla Glue. Starting to look as though the LED is not filling out as much as the 600 watt. Got another week to go. Looks like the LED side will finish before the 600 watt side.
  17. Looks close to the same. Maybe the calyxes are bigger on the LED side? What strain is this again?
  18. I know super sick here is my problem I live in the woods every year we have to pull them off of us and this year I just can't do it anymore I can't even go in my own yard without thinking i'm going to get feed on and made sickany one that knows any tips or sprays that works thinking I might even have to call someone out to do that ever they do just don't do that bc of where I live and the ladies I have
  19. Dependant on genetics, but yes much growth occurs in the first three weeks of flower. Sativa leaning breeds typically strech the most, sometimes tripling in size. Indicas generally less.My blue dream flowered at 30 in usually finishes around 5ft(60in), while my grape ape typically only gains 8in or so after flip.
  20. The only downside I can see with this large fixture is that your are locked into one configuration. The modular, independent lights, in a daisy chain or singular, are much more flexible for the grower who likes to be able to add and subtract lights in any pattern, size, or configuration of their plants. Sometimes I use one 1500. Sometimes 2 or 3. I can easily move them around. Not restricted to moving the big beastly fixture around. Having all these lights in one fixture is like having all your eggs in one basket. I can see it would be perfect for a warehouse grow. Not so much for a small home grow. I like a bunch of small grows where I can keep em separated.
  21. I don't think there's going to be any turning back. No grow rights taken. They may dream about taking them but that's not the way the world is moving. No turning back.
  22. Chronic myelogenous leukemia typically affects older adults. It's caused by a chromosome mutation that occurs spontaneously. Doctors aren't sure what causes the mutation. Many people don't develop symptoms until later stages and the diagnosis is only made through routine blood work. When symptoms do occur, they include bleeding easily, feeling rundown or tired, weight loss, pale skin, and night sweats.
  23. I work briefly at a dispensary its not all its cracked up to be, I learned a lot but I really learned pot may be legal but its not a freedom or a right. Its strictly money. With these companies wanting to get rid of rec grow I feel I'll be put back into the 90's pot world.
  24. You could build the older version of these HLG QB V1s for $47 each and a 240w driver($60) to push the boards at 60w. Probably wouldnt even need the heatsink. So you're talking $260 for the components plus the frame and wiring. Very cheap way to get into high end LED lighting.
  25. Thanks, Semi. I enjoyed putting the light together and it was fairly easy. I used 40 rivets for that entire frame and a few pieces of angle alumium. If you notice in the very first post of the kits, the driver is mounted on top of the light, adding heat to the room. The light rig i just built has the driver remotely mounted outside of the insulated grow space. Eventually I'll remotely mount the drivers in the kits I built as well. These lights are bright and WILL bleach your plants white if less than 12", some run 18" but 18-24" is the closest you want to get them in flower at 150watts per quantum board. If you ran the QBs at 60w you could get them a lot closer. I'm pushing the limits of these LEDs with the highest amperage allowed.
