  1. First positive dispensary experience.

    I only purchased some candy and some shatter. The herb I looked at seemed decent although some of it had clearly been mechanically trimmed so their were no visible trichomes. Smooth round nuggets instead of normal buds. I'm guessing that was where the jars of kief came from.
  2. Racketeering was the big charge. I think most people would sell their souls to get out of that. Civil property forfeiture, twenty years and $100,000 fine.
  3. After all the bad things I have said about dispensaries in the past I thought I should give equal time for something positive. Since my recent crop failure I thought I would take a look at another dispensary. All that I had been to in the past were basically a couple of twenty somethings behind a largely empty display case selling six or so different strains. Most of these were definitely sub-par in my opinion. The one I went to the other day had a large selection of strains as well as medibles and concentrates. A very pleasant surprise for me. It actually looked like the ones on TV! While it was real sticker shock for someone who has not purchased cannabis retail since the late 1970's it was cheaper than prices I had seen at the other establishments. I can't really picture using something like this on a regular basis but it was nice to finally see one that was not a complete ghetto schwag shop.

    These have always worked well for me.

    Again, the Federal government interfering with interstate commerce.

    Looks like they'll have to build that wall right across the ocean!

  9. http://www.mlive.com/news/index.ssf/2017/08/state_medical_marijuana_board.html State medical marijuana board signals intent to shut down all dispensaries Updated on August 21, 2017 at 5:11 PMPosted on August 21, 2017 at 3:10 PM By Emily Lawler EAST LANSING, MI - Medical marijuana dispensaries would need to cease operation by a date certain if they wanted to be eligible for licensure in the future, the chair of the Medical Marijuana Licensing Board signaled at a meeting on Monday. "If we don't do this today we're going to do it somewhere in the future. Because it needs to be done," said Rick Johnson, who chairs the board. The board ultimately postponed the motion, which came from board member Donald Bailey. He proposed that if dispensaries did not close by Sept. 15, they would not be eligible for licensure under the new dispensary licensing system that will be put in place on Dec. 15. He pointed to a 2013 Michigan Supreme Court decision that pegged dispensaries as operating illegally. "Every dispensary that's out there right now is open in violation of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act," Bailey said. The action was strongly opposed by medical marijuana patients. Sue Molff, a patient from Traverse City, said she didn't appreciate the board talking about shutting down dispensaries. She said she depended on the concentrates she was only able to get at medical marijuana shops. "What am I supposed to do during that time? Am I supposed to go back on the black market and get what I need?" She asked. Until Monday's meeting, any changes to dispensaries were expected to happen in December, when a state law passed last year required a new licensing system to be implemented. Mark Gibson, a PhD candidate at Michigan State University, is also a medical marijuana patient with a degenerative bone disease. He asked the board to consider patient access. "I ask in fairness, not talking about the businesses, but the patients, and ensuring that they have continuous access," Gibson said. Joseph Smith, a caregiver, said he read the law and it mentioned patients and caregivers, not dispensaries. "I would have loved to have had a sign and raked in some money. But the law wouldn't allow me to do it, so I didn't do it," he said. Although he advocated keeping dispensaries open for the patients, he recommended a licensing process that had a point system benefitting people like him, who had followed the rules. Tim Beck, who helped pass the initial voter-initiated medical marijuana legislation, accused the board of defecating on dispensaries. He said when he heard the rumors the board wanted to shut all dispensaries down, he initially dismissed them. "This is an unprecedented action," Beck said. The board ended up postponing the action after it became clear that, with one member absent, Bailey didn't have the votes to pass his proposal on Monday. Jason Moon, a spokesperson for the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, which houses the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation, said there would be a review if such a proposal did pass. "The Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation will thoroughly review the recommendations and discussion from the board, and consult with the Attorney General's office before any action is taken," Moon said. The board asked for input from LARA before they made a decision on requiring dispensaries to shut down. Board member Vivan Pickard said she didn't feel she had the information she needed to make a decision at Monday's meeting. The discussion took place at the board's second meeting. At the first, hundreds of people packed the room. The board's next posed meeting is on Oct. 12, though Johnson said the board would meet again before Sept. 15 to consider Bailey's proposal to shut down dispensaries. The regulations and a licensing scheme for medical marijuana dispensaries must be in place by Dec. 15.
  10. Many on this site might remember the man who did the voice for the Belle Tire mascot was Rube Weiss. He was also the voice of Detroit Dragway (Sunday! Funny Cars!), Santa Claus in the Hudson's Thanksgiving Parade, Shoutin’ Shorty Hogan on the Soupy Sales show and numerous other voice gigs both here and nationwide. He was also the father of musician Don Was. Dave Dixon did a spot on impersonation of Rube Weiss using a phrase that they taught at Specs Howard, "Talk like Rube Weiss, keep your throat tight like a vice". https://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/the-man-with-the-big-voice-wcz/
  11. The Year of the Plague

    I ended up saving one Green Crack plant about 1 1/2 foot tall and one rooted cutting. The plant is in flower and the cutting is growing in soil. The problem appears to be system wide so until I can get things reorganized I'm just going to grow in soil. Going with Blueberry, Lucky Number Slevin and Northern Lights.
  12. Michigan does not accept my condition

    http://www.healthline.com/health/gilles-de-la-tourette-syndrome#overview1 Persistent muscle spasms are a qualifying condition under the act. Just provide the doctor with records indicating that you are afflicted with persistent spasms.
  13. The Year of the Plague

    I haven't had time to deal with the plants for a couple of days. When I went to dispose of them today they appear to be recovering. The Green Crack and Violator Kush both have new growth with no spots on them. The White Widow never looked as bad as the others but was recently re-vegged so it still looks a little odd anyway. I'll give them some time and see how it goes. I'm hoping that it was just stress and they just needed a rest.

    Starting fresh from seed. No point in throwing good money after bad.
