    How Much Weight Can I Grow?

    There's no way you are going to be able to sell it to the dispensaries though. Why would they let you around their money making machine? You didn't pay the bribe to grow did you? Then it's just personal, for personal use, not for sale.

    Well in addition to cannabis being effective fighting against cancer cell growth, it also assist in the nausea associated with chemotherapy. Often times patients will get too weak to survive because they simply cannot eat. I have several relatives who are in the nursing field, and drug manufacturers(through pharmaceutical representatives) "buy" doctors. Think about it, why would a cancer specialist cut his wages offering an organic treatment, in which was never taught throughout the doctorate program? I think your best bet is to do all the research you can handle on cannabis and cancer cells before making your decision. It sounds like you need to convince yourself a bit more. And best of luck enduring Chemo without cannabis, if you choose to do so. BTW, I am originally from FL. They'd rather flood opiate scripts than other alternatives. Hence why I left there. Doctors are just as bad as street dealers. It's how they pay for the 12 years of college.

    At one time I helped someone beat leukemia, and he had a very aggressive form. His health rapidly declined in 4 months, and was darn near bed-ridden. He only needed 10grams of RSO, and used that along with his chemo treatment. Bounced back by the time the oil was gone. Hopefully this helps. Good luck, and trust the plant.

    Any idea what the PAR or PPFD rating is on this light? I don’t see any ref. to either. I'm running a Fluence SPYDRx PLUS LED, 660 W actual, with an AVERAGE PPFD (photosynthetic photon flux density) rating above 1020 micro mol/s cross the 4x4’ footprint. I added a dimmer which allows adjustment for germination, veg and flowering. They ain’t cheap (my model currently sells for $1,500) but it’s one hell of a light. Rock hard buds too.

    Marijuana Testing of Job Applicants Is Barred Posted by CN Staff on April 12, 2019 at 06:55:41 PT By Michael Gold Source: New York Times New York -- Most employers in New York City would no longer be able to force job applicants to take drug tests for marijuana use, under a bill overwhelmingly approved this week by the City Council. If the drug-screening law is enacted, it would put New York in relatively uncharted territory. Several drug policy and employment experts said that they did not know of similar laws on the books, even in states that have legalized marijuana. In Maine, where voters approved legal recreational marijuana use, the law prevents employers from discriminating against people who have used cannabis, but it does not specifically regulate drug testing. The Council’s bill would affect public and private employers in New York City, including companies with headquarters elsewhere, according to Jumaane D. Williams, the city’s public advocate and the bill’s sponsor. He said it was unclear exactly how many employers in the city screen employees for drugs and might be affected. “I’m proud that the city has taken action where the federal and the state government have stalled,” Mr. Williams said on Thursday. The legislation, which passed on Tuesday by a 40-to-4 vote, was the latest in a series of progressive steps that city officials have taken to ease cannabis restrictions as state lawmakers’ efforts to legalize marijuana have stalled. In addition to Mr. Williams’s bill, the city also passed a bill that would stop the city from requiring marijuana testing for people on probation. Both bills are currently awaiting Mayor Bill de Blasio’s signature. The mayor’s administration fully supports the employment bill, a spokeswoman for the mayor, Olivia Lapeyrolerie, said on Thursday. The employment screening bill would take effect one year after it is signed into law. Not every employee would be exempt from drug testing if the bill becomes law. If workers appeared to be under the influence of marijuana at work, employers would still be permitted to drug test. The bill also carves out exemptions for certain safety-sensitive industries, including law enforcement and construction, as well as jobs that require supervising children or medical patients. The bill also would not stop federal and state employees or contractors, who are not under the city’s jurisdiction, from being tested. Nor would it end the drug-test requirements imposed by the federal government on transportation workers like truck drivers and pilots. Dionna King, a policy manager at the Drug Policy Alliance, acknowledged that the range of exceptions could weaken the impact of the bill. Still, she said the bill was an important step toward ending the stigma attached to marijuana use. “Through this legislation, there will still be a good number of folks who will no longer have to submit to testing just to get employment,” Ms. King said. Pre-employment drug testing started to become increasingly common in the 1980s. Former President Ronald Reagan issued an executive order in 1986 that called for “drug-free workplaces” in the federal government, and mandated drug testing at federal agencies. In 1988, the Drug-Free Workplace Act extended the policy to federal contractors and recipients of federal grants. From there, it ultimately spread to the private sector, pushed by advocates of strong antidrug policy, according to Mark A.R. Kleiman, a professor at public policy at New York University. By 2011, more than half of United States employers conducted drug screenings on all of their job candidates, according to a survey from the Society for Human Resource Management, a trade organization. Only 29 percent of employers did not conduct drug tests at all. “It has become so normalized now,” Ms. King said. “People expect it as part of the hiring process.” Employers defended the testing as a way to root out prospective workers whose drug use could have led to impaired judgment, lower productivity and higher absentee rates, according to Melissa J. Osipoff, a lawyer at the employment law firm Fisher Phillips. But opponents to pre-employment drug screening believe that the practice is overly invasive and creates an unnecessary barrier to employment. Mr. Kleiman and Ms. King said there was little evidence that passing a drug test would be a predictor of an employee’s job performance. In recent years, as attitudes toward marijuana have shifted, some employers began to reconsider their views on marijuana testing, Ms. Osipoff said. Even in states that have legalized some form of marijuana, employers have felt pressed to reconsider drug-testing policies in order to hire competitively, Ms. Osipoff said. “In states where it’s legal, they’ll tell you, ‘We can’t get good candidates if we test for marijuana,’” she said. But Kathryn S. Wylde, 64, president of the Partnership for New York City, which represents business leaders, called the bill an overreach by the City Council. “This is another instance where City Council is interfering in the relationship between employees and employers,” she said. Ms. Wylde, 64, said the bill would increase costs for global employers in particular, forcing them to modify existing policies to comply with the city’s law. In New York, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said that he would push to legalize recreational marijuana this year. Though he had initially hoped to include the measure as part of the state budget, lawmakers were unable to reach a deal. Mr. Williams said that while the state continued to negotiate legalization, it was important for the city to continue to enact what he viewed as sensible marijuana policy. “If we want to be a progressive city, we have to really put these things into action,” he said. Quest Diagnostics, one of the nation’s largest medical testing companies, released data on Thursday that said that marijuana use had risen among United States workers in 2018. An analysis of more than 10 million drug-test results showed that 2.3 percent of the American work force tested positive for marijuana use in 2018, up from 2 percent a year earlier. Quest also said that the percentage of American workers who tested positive for illicit drugs was at its highest point since 2004. The country’s growing acceptance of marijuana usage was likely to force employers to take a harder look at their drug-testing policies, Ms. Osipoff said. She expected that New York City’s bill would push employers across the country to consider broad changes. “When New York City passes a law, that just gets employers talking,” she said. One of the Council members who opposed the bill, Steven Mateo, a Republican of Queens, said he felt the city should not interfere with the private sector’s hiring discretion. “I believe private businesses should have the power to determine their own hiring practices,” said Mr. Mateo, the City Council’s minority leader. A version of this article appears in print on April 12, 2019, on Page A24 of the New York edition with the headline: City Council Votes to Ban Employers’ Marijuana Testing of Applicants.

    Colorado let them decide for themselves. Probably the best way to go. Express your ideas at meetings and ultimately vote out the cannabis haters if they can't learn. I have found that a smart township supervisor will be on your side, however, how many are smart? If they opt out they are ignorant. Vote in someone intelligent for a leader.

    New legislation, the Marijuana Justice Act, would legalize marijuana on a federal level — and even provide financial incentives for states to legalize it too Could this be the moment when federal policy finally catches up to public opinion, which now shows a majority of Americans in support of legalization.

    I'm thinking of starting a YouTube channel so I can share how I process, vape and eat my meds. I've got a whip style vaporizer with an extra long hose to a glass water pipe. I run my meds briefly through a coffee grinder and series of screens to get three grades: kief, vaporizer ready fine, and course stuff for cannabutter. I jam my postvape through a small funnel into single gelatin capsules which I swallow. About a third of a gram fills the whip or one capsule. I will be sharing my ideas here on mmma first to get the kinks out and to get feedback. I have made a few raw YouTube videos and am learning to use a video editor.

    They say it is but I can't see why. I'm looking for PAR and the cheaper one has it. The 'build' one cost about 3 times as much with maybe 10% more PAR. Do we even need more? The math ($ per PAR) is better on the Yehsence. Until I see some sort of shortcomings of the cheap ones I'm following my PAR meter and the math.

    Talk to me when you're ready. I'm running a room full of HLG 550's and have setup 2 whole other LED rooms now. The results are phenomenal. HLG has the highest uMol/J in the industry and their lights are very reasonably priced compared to others in the game. You are right. You can achieve too much light because they are so efficient. Sometimes I dial the voltage down if the plants are too tall and can reduce my energy input/output by 50%.

    Is Grassmatch a legitimate site?

    I would never scan my drivers license and patient card for a website. not to mention a website that hides its registrar info. also there is not one single piece of information about what person or company runs grassmatch. except for the email name peter@grassmatch. on the grassmatch about page: they misspelled the word "all". why would a website for patients and caregivers be focused on "Get the most for your money." ? That seems more like a bunch of people selling marijuana than a patient and caregiver relationship. on the privacy page .grassmatch.com/pages/privacy-policy just not a good policy at all. if you upload your info to grassmatch, expect that it will get out, with this kind of privacy policy.

    I actually took the CCW class twice. Both times I was told the same thing. No CCW (or guns) for mmj patients. This opinion was expressed verbally by the law enforcement officer who conducted the legal overview portion of the class. He also mentioned LARA and the background check conducted by the sheriff's department. I figured this was typical LEO BS but my interest was more in those attending the class and the CCW class content than actually obtaining a CCW permit. Haven't t felt the need to arm myself so it wasn't a big deal. Sort of like illegal transport. If I decide to carry a pistol for personal protection, regardless of the consequences if caught, I will. I am acquainted with Dan Grow who is now on the new Bar Association mmj section with Michael Kormon. If there is a good reason to challenge to LEO position, I suppose I should be the one to do so although Berrien County may not be a preferred venue.

    I heard marijuana, according to the US govern-ment(al), is a scheduled 1 drug, with no medical purpose, remains illegal ,and cultivation, manufacturing, and distribution is a violation of federal law, maybe? If that has not changed, it remains illegal to lie on a federal form. The gun stores have been instructed to specifically deny a marijuana card holder a gun purchase, so I think at least THEY still believe that guns and marijuana do not mix. look at the use of this as a plea bargaining tool with home growers and dispensaries raided for example.

    The question asks if you are using illegal drugs. Since we are legal cardholders in our state it is not a lie. They do not specify "federally" illegal.

    Tasers are not illegal in Michigan anymore. They were made legal back in 2012. You still need a CPL to carry one, and I believe you need additional taser-specific training to get it, but you can have one if you want.

    I know quite a few people that do. Whether it is because it is perfectly legal or because different branches of Government don't talk to each other I couldn't say, only that many people have both and seem to be doing fine. The text of the law does say MMJ card holders shall not lose any rights or privileges but the law really means very little to Law Enforcement or local Gov't. I personally believe that having a MMJ card does not deprive you of ANY of your Constitutionally protected rights, but I am not a judge, lawyer, or drug cop so you should talk to a lawyer and in the end you should do what is right for you and your family. Personally, I would never give up my right to keep and bear arms or to control my own medication, regardless of what the law says. After all, our laws used to say that a black man was worth 3/5 of a white man for voting purposes, women couldn't vote at all, and gay people were mentally ill. What is legal is not always just and what is just isn't necessarily legal. Make up your own mind on the matter and be careful.

    not confused at all. I was specifically asking outsideinthecold for these exact clarification, you made this confusing for readers possibly while I await a response from outsideinthecold. fact is, the seller will be breaking a federal law if he knowingly sells you a firearm while you are a marijuana user. this is very clear. stick to that point first, Mr Komorn can explain the rest better than I can. but that's a start
