      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. Could have been the switch from 18to 24, then to 12. The goin up in hours before flower instead of a steady flip or gradual reduction in light
  3. Yesterday
  4. So far I've had no problem with the first bag. The 2nd...a little. Think one was a wee bit hotter that the other. I'm currently in flush and have got to say I'm pretty impressed. The flowers are not too far off from my coco flowers, in which I'm happier than sh!t on a clam. Very cost effective in the end compared to coco/hydro. However, my coco flowers are way, waaaay louder at a similar size. Also, my soil flowers do grow differently. Perhaps it's because of less synthetics, because I ended up using the same organic/synthetic formula about 3 weeks in? I dunno. Good stuff tho.
  5. I bought some Cannatonic #4 seeds yesterday. They are feminized and I got 10 seeds for $97. They also threw in some free feminized seeds (5 seeds). That will be my primary grow next season.
  6. Yep, I bought one with an led light. So cool seeing the trichomes grow.
  7. Last week
  8. Gotcha man, just wanted to be sure I knew what you were sayin. Yup I am in soil. I didn't even think about it being dirt forum, lol. Made sense for you to specify.
  9. I figured this was posted under soil growing, so thought you were using soil. I'm not. That's why i specified, because you have to supplement silica in coco. So i just wanted to make sure that you know, that I know, I'm not just dumping additives expecting results. I've slowly worked my way up 4.5 years creating this proprietary blended formula.
  10. Oh, I do use Cal mg as needed also.lol. was that you not using soil, or were you thinking I don't?
  11. That's impressive. Not using soil tho, I use 14 things including phUP, and mycos in flower. I just started using terpinator, so now it's 15. My clusterfu*k formula still cost about 200 bucks less than AN's whole line-up. LOL.
  12. Get that 80x or higher microscope at start watching those trichomes. You should be able to see the beginning of clear trichome development. It's very important to familiarize yourself with the ripening of the trichomes. So don't hesitate to check those trichomes every couple of days. You're prolly excited anyway, so it just adds to the fun. LOL.
  13. The Snake oil has a smell close to the buds. I noticed this morning when I was adding support to a branch that was getting weighed down with buds. My head was near some buds and that is when I noticed the smell.
  14. No bunny muffin. Nothing like going to the dispo and paying top-dollar for crap meds. I swear its from everyone and that darn "Lucas Formula". Too many people rely on that "fail-safe" nutrient program, resulting in sub-par meds. At least every 3 of 5 times visiting any dispo, I almost always leave disappointed. Don't even get me started on their b.s. oil.
  15. The legislators can eliminate caregivers 'on paper'. I don't think that would be favorable politically at this point. Even if they did, caregivers are part of the Michigan landscape now and you can't take them out of the picture by amendment. All the 'rules' can do is alienate them from the rules at this point. They are well established in the communities and they are not law enforcements problem anymore, law enforcement will tell you that. That changes everything. Where I live, busting growers is a very low priority these days. It's like busting people for setting off fireworks. You can call 911 but good luck seeing an officer any time soon. They have better things to do. The voters have spoken and they say that marijuana isn't the threat it has been made out to be for so long. Even the feds are more intent on setting things right than putting people in prison for marijuana.
  16. Slow growing buds may be an indication of a later flowering plant. Also, WW tends to be on the neutral side when it comes to smells. Another reason it's favored among many growers, that and the trichome production. Mine is like sweet candy with a cheesy undertone. I call it the cheese candy cut. Most likely, that snake oil strain is going to finish around 54-60days. Anytime I start to get that really "loud" noticeable smell... I know that strain will be finished in about 3 more weeks. Cannabis is almost always the "loudest" 3 weeks before harvest.
  17. Play for power and domination will be the topic for the next 2 years. Green Peak has lobbied to eliminate caregivers and make giving away recreational illegal. Eventually people are going to end back up in Jail and Joints will be sold at gas stations like cigarettes unless we stay on top of what Michigan voted for. https://michiganmedicalmarijuana.com/state-pension-fund-is-indirectly-funding-michigans-largest-pot-operations/
  18. I've grown WW for a few years now, no problems. WW is a very good producer. My latest WW came from seedsman too. I keep a mother plant of WW going .
  19. Something else I noticed is the buds are slow growing. My Snake oil buds are already starting to smell. The white Widow has no smell yet and are gaining size at a slower pace
  20. I don't know about this product, but would like to offer some advice. I have seen you post a lot of threads, asking about all these different supplements and additives. As a beginner especially, less is more man, a complete base nutes, and maybe a bud booster if you feel froggy is all you need to grow good weed. Focus more on controlling environment and less on figuring out what snake oils work. This is truly in the spirit of helping, please don't take it the wrong way. When I started, I tried everything. I now use a base nute, recharge, and a bud booster, and a little molasses, that's it. I produce 2 plus on a 1000w light of excellent quality
  21. Chairman Sends Marijuana Email To NORML Posted by CN Staff on August 13, 2019 at 08:33:25 PT By Tom Angell, Contributor Source: Forbes Washington, D.C. -- Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who last month filed legislation to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act and begin repairing the harms of prohibition enforcement, asked the advocacy group's supporters to write their own members of Congress in support of his bill, the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act. "America has a moral responsibility to pass my legislation to end the prohibition of marijuana and take on the oppression at the heart of the War on Drugs," Nadler wrote. "I’m proud to work with NORML to create a more just national marijuana policy." The bill will "once and for all end the destructive policy of federal marijuana prohibition in America" and "remedy the widespread inequities and injustice this policy has brought upon tens of millions of Americans," the chairman told the legalization group's members. Beyond descheduling cannabis, the MORE Act would create processes for the expungement and resentencing of prior convictions and prevent government agencies from blocking access to federal benefits or impeding citizenship status for immigrants due to marijuana use. Additionally, it would levy a five percent federal tax on cannabis sales, with some revenue earmarked for job training and legal aid programs for people impacted by prohibition enforcement as well as loans for small marijuana businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged people. Its introduction comes amidst what observers are saying is the most marijuana-friendly Congress in history. Less than eight months into the two-year session, dozens of cannabis proposals have been filed, seven hearings have been held on the issue and legislation to increase marijuana businesses' access to banking services has cleared a key committee. "With Chairman Nadler's leadership, we believe that the MORE act will likely be the first bill to end federal marijuana criminalization ever to pass in a chamber of Congress," NORML Political Director Justin Strekal said in an interview. "Representative democracy is not a spectator sport. Now is the time for the majority of Americans who support legalization to demand reform from their legislators, just as Mr. Nadler's message to our members indicated." Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a 2020 presidential candidate, filed a companion version of Nadler's bill in the Senate. "In 1977, I cast my first vote as a freshman member of the State Assembly to decriminalize marijuana in my home state of New York," the chairman wrote to NORML's supporters. "Since then, I have been committed to ending the criminalization of marijuana. The criminalization of marijuana is a mistake and caused grave harm, disproportionately to those who are poor or people of color, and we must take action." Nadler's bill was endorsed by a group of justice-focused organizations such as ACLU and NAACP in a letter to House leaders earlier this month. "Criminal justice involvement deprives individuals from low-income communities of color equal access to economic opportunity," the groups wrote. "Incarceration robs families and communities of breadwinners and workers. Thus, any marijuana reform bill that moves forward in Congress must first address criminal justice reform and repair the damage caused by the war on drugs in low-income communities of color." Calling the proposal an important step "to bolster communities ravaged by the war on drugs," the groups are pushing congressional leadership to see that it is "swiftly marked up and immediately scheduled for floor consideration" following the August recess. "The hysteria around marijuana is starting to lift as states across the country lead the way in reforming their marijuana laws. It is time for the federal government to follow suit," Nadler wrote in the new message to NORML's list. "Marijuana is a public health and personal freedom issue, not a criminal one. We can no longer afford the moral or financial costs of the War on Drugs." The New York congressman sent a separate email to his own campaign list last month asking his supporters to sign a petition backing his cannabis bill. Also last month, a Judiciary subcommittee held a hearing on marijuana prohibition at which members of both parties express broad support for ending or scaling back federal prohibition, with disagreement mostly focusing on the details or competing proposals to do so.

  22. Yes there is. All the dispensaries are integrated with the State on this. Your card number is entered into the system with how much you bought. They total the amount you bought at all dispensaries and you can't go over 10 ounces in 30 days.
