  2. Unless you are making financial transactions or are sending sensitive personal information it should be OK. I don't think many of us are doing those things on here. But whatever makes you feel safest. SSL serves three purposes (I'll use a snail-mail analogy to illustrate): Keep the communication secret: prevent the mailman from reading your letters. Verify that the communication is unaltered: prevent the mailman from altering your letters. Verify the identity of the sender: prevent someone else from sending you letters under a false name. Note that points 1 and 2 are worthless unless 3 is intact: if someone else can impersonate the originator of a message, then encrypting it does nothing but prevent yet another attacker from hacking your already-compromised communication. If you click through an unverified or untrusted certificate, this is what you are risking - the communication will still be encrypted, but the server you're talking to may not be legit. That said, there are a few situations where it is relatively safe to click through the warning: When you're not sending or receiving any confidential data, such as passwords or credit card details; note that cookies containing session IDs etc. are also confidential, so you shouldn't do this when you plan to use anything that requires logging in. Also, consider that a bad certificate can be a sign of malicious activity, so you should be extra careful when this happens. When you can verify the identity of the server through other means: when the server is on the same local area network (behind the same router / firewall), and the server IP has been obtained through a trusted DNS or a local hosts file; when you can check the certificate's (SHA-1 or other) fingerprint through a different channel (e.g. logging into the server and checking it there): as seen from the client, it must match the known certificate as installed on the server. The connection could still be hijacked, but doing this from outside the network is only possible if the firewall / router is compromised (and when that happens, you have other things to worry about).
  3. It's just an expired SSL certificate. https://www.venafi.com/education-center/ssl/fix-expired-certificates
  4. The thing that has worked for me in getting rid of mites is simply rinsing them off with cold water. If the plant is small enough submerse it entirely in cold water for a few seconds. The water won't hurt the plants at all and the mites will float right off. Larger plants can be put in the shower and rinsed with a hand held shower head. Rinse them off with a spray of cold water paying particular attention to the undersides of the leaves. Do this every two days until the mites are gone. They may not all rinse off right away but even if a few manage to stick their reproductive cycles are disrupted. By doing it every two days you ensure that any eggs that may have hatched since the last rinse will not have time to grow. Easy, cheap and best if all no harmful chemicals.
  5. It would be best to retain an attorney that you trust. It may cost a little more but a good attorney is the only friend you have in the criminal justice system. Why risk jail, fines , probation coasts, community service, drug counseling etc. just to save a few bucks in the short term. Kormorn Law is one of the premier cannabis law firms in the state. If they can't help you then they should be able to refer you to someone in your area. It sounds like any competent lawyer would be able to get the charges dropped or at least reduced. If they are charging him with having cannabis in his system when he has a medical card it should be thrown out of court anyway. Tell the court you aren't comfortable with the lawyer due to what you found in your research and ask for a delay so you can obtain proper representation. If you can't get an attorney before the court date "stand mute" when asked for a plea. The judge will enter a "not guilty" plea in your behalf. In my experience the courts are only shaking you down to see how much cash they can get out of you. Think of it as being way laid by gangsters looking for an excuse to rob you. Extend my best wishes to your son during this stressful time and best of luck fighting for your freedom.
  6. If you have the room to do it I would suggest you try growing your own. It saves you money and you always know where your meds came from and can be sure nothing harmful has been sprayed on it.
  7. This is the same kind of attempt to work around the law that we saw when people were trying the "daisy chain" sales model. "I'll be your caregiver and you be my caregiver and my cousin will buy overages as one of my patients." I'm sure this brought in a great deal of revenue for both the State and defense lawyers. If you want to sell then do it the right way. Jump through all the hoops and pay the fees. If you do it any other way then, yes it is illegal. Selling black market is still your best bet for making money but don't pretend you are working within the law. Why not just give some cuttings away and spread the good genetics around to your friends,? Good karma has it's own rewards.
  8. When LEO was looking for loop holes in the law they would frequently say the holes inn the fencing had to be small enough that a person couldn't fit their hand through. Might not hurt to put some chicken wire on the deer fencing so elves can't slip through the holes.
  9. Charlotte Figi, Colorado Girl Who Inspired CBD Movement To Control Seizures, Passes Away From Coronavirus April 8, 2020 at 4:30 pm DENVER (CBS4) — Charlotte Figi, a Colorado girl who was among the first children to be treated with cannabidiol (CBD) to control seizures, has died from complications related to COVID-19, according to the Colorado Sun. She was 13 years old. Charlotte’s story changed the way people viewed the use of CBD and she appeared in a 2013 documentary by CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “Charlotte’s story directly impacted thousands of families across the globe and has changed the face of cannabis in many ways,” The Realm of Caring Foundation, an organization co-founded by her mother, Paige Figi, stated. “Your work is done Charlotte, the world is changed, and you can now rest knowing that you leave the world a better place.” Charlotte was born with a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome. With 300 seizures a week, she couldn’t walk, talk or eat, and no medications worked. Her family had almost lost hope. “I was wishing for no more suffering because we had nothing else to try,” Paige Figi told CBS4. Then her family learned about the type of marijuana that’s low in THC but high in CBD. Paige began giving Charlotte cannabis oil potent with CBD and her seizures nearly stopped. The strain of cannabis was renamed “Charlotte’s Web” — and when word spread about how successful it was, desperate families flocked to Colorado. The Charlotte’s Web Medical Hemp Act of 2014 was named after Charlotte. Last week, Charlotte was hospitalized, for the first time in years, Paige said. She was discharged two days later. Then, on Tuesday night, family members posted that she had passed. “Charlotte is no longer suffering. She is seizure-free forever. Thank you so much for all of your love,” a family member wrote on Facebook. If public health officials verify her death was related to the coronavirus, that would make Charlotte the youngest victim of the pandemic in Colorado so far.
  10. I checked out one of the spam posts recently and they also offered fake ID. I'm certain neither the cannabis or ID would be delivered.
  11. I live in Ferndale and for years my water came out of the tap at 6 ph. A couple of years ago they put in new water lines and it wiped out my whole hydro system overnight. My guess was some additive they put in for the new pipes. Ever since this happened the water from the tap is now 8 to 8.5 ph. Definitely let the water sit before using it and adjust the ph as needed.

  14. I love this guys quote. "We have always put patients first when we make decisions regarding medical marijuana,” MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo said in the bulletin. “This phase out process is an important next step in implementing the will of Michigan voters and making sure that patients continue to have access to their medicine.” What a sense of humor! He meant to say, ..."making sure that patients continue to pay taxes on their medicine"
  15. I knew they would do it I just wasn't sure how or when. Detroit Metro Times By Steve Neavling Michigan is phasing out a significant source of medical marijuana sold at dispensaries. Licensed caregivers will be prevented from selling marijuana to the regulated market beginning on Oct. 1, the Marijuana Regulatory Agency announced in a bulletin Monday. The original intent of caregivers was to provide cannabis to up to five medical cardholders. But the state allowed caregivers to sell to licensed growers and processors to overcome a shortage in marijuana. Now that the state has nearly 200 licensed medical cannabis growers in Michigan, the MRA is beginning to cut off caregivers to allow the market to work itself out. “We have always put patients first when we make decisions regarding medical marijuana,” MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo said in the bulletin. “This phase out process is an important next step in implementing the will of Michigan voters and making sure that patients continue to have access to their medicine.” To make the transition smoother, the state is phasing out the use of caregivers in three steps. Beginning Sunday, growers and processors were prohibited from obtaining marijuana plants, concentrates, vape cartridges, and infused products from caregivers. Growers and processors will be permitted to continue buying unlimited flower from caregivers until May 31. From June 1 to Sept. 30, a commercial grower can only obtain caregiver-grown marijuana flower that weighs less than or equal to 50% of the total weight of flower that the commercial grower harvests. The final phase is Oct. 1, when growers can no longer obtain flower from caregivers. Caregivers were the source of marijuana cartridges tainted with vitamin E acetate, the potentially deadly additive that is to blame for the outbreak of lung injuries. The impact of the phaseout is not yet clear. If there is a shortage, prices could rise.
  16. I for one didn't respond because I had no pertinent information about the subject. But, if it makes you feel better; I've never heard of that strain and have no idea where one might obtain such a thing.
  17. Which high CBD strains do you prefer? I've never noticed much relief from CBD but it helps my wife.
  18. You can grow up to 12 marijuana plants per household. Twelve plants can give you quite a large yield. You can also "gift" up to 2.5 oz. or 15 grams of concentrate for free to another adult. My suggestion would be to grow your own cannabis and then you can give your uncle his meds from your supply as long as no money changes hands. The few years that the state infringes on your rights because of your age will give you a good opportunity to hone your growing skills so when you reach an age deemed proper by our brilliant leaders you will be able to supply patients with confidence.
  19. There wasn't much interest on this site. Grow Green Mi has had a couple of clone and seed swaps. They are becoming popular from what I understand. Keep an eye on their website for info on upcoming swaps. http://growgreenmi.com/
  20. I wouldn't bet the farm on it. Plain speaking and common sense has never been applied to cannabis laws in Michigan. When the medical law passed you were allowed to obtain it anywhere but no one could give you any unless they were your registered caregiver. The large print giveth and the small print taketh away.
  21. I just planted a freebee CBDurban seed. The seedbank says it tests 8% CBD and 8% THC. I don't have much experience with high CBD strains and haven't been particularly impressed by the results. My general impression has been that I get as much relief from my Marie Laveau mojo bag as I do from the CBD but it seems to work for my wife. Has anyone tried this strain or a strain with a similar ratio? I was wondering what sort of effects to expect from it. Will it get you high or just give you a headache?
  22. It definitely puts a strain on the relationship when LEO breaks down your door, kicks your butt, robs you, and then locks you in a cage. Hopefully cannabis will be out of the mix soon but I'm sure our beloved government will soon find something to replace it with in their war on people.
  23. If you go to other states that accept a Michigan card they frequently have different tax rates for medical than they do for recreational.
