  1. No, I’ve only been medical. I admit I’ve been out of the loop (conversations, discussions around the law) but when I look at the law I see this: " Adult-Use Possession and Cultivation Limits Adults who are 21 or older may: possess, use, purchase, or give away (to other adults) up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana; within a residence, grow up to 12 marijuana plants and/or possess up to 10 ounces of marijuana (provided that any amount greater than 2.5 ounces is stored under lock and key); possess up to 10 ounces at one’s primary residence (provided that any amount greater than 2.5 ounces is stored under lock and key); and possess, manufacture, or purchase marijuana paraphernalia or accessories, or sell them to other adults. So, what am I missing? Has there been modifications (to the law) I’m not aware of? I can not find anything that alludes to There is no limit on your 12 recreational plants. You get to legally keep it all in your home. Pounds!
  2. Wild Bill, private message who? Everyone? Or, do I post on a forum and then following with interested individuals per PM? Obviously, I don’t understand how to go about getting the message out.
  3. Rest2, this is from public act 91, p4. "This subsection applies only if the primary caregiver possesses marihuana in forms and amounts that do not exceed any of the following: (1) For each qualifying patient to whom he or she is connected through the department's registration process, a combined total of 2.5 ounces of usable marihuana and usable marihuana equivalents." I read this to mean that I can only carry (in inventory) 2.5 Oz per patient. Five patients plus myself would be 15oz total in inventory. Has this changed?
  4. I'm a CG and recently lost three heavy-use patients. As their use increased, I expanded my grow to accommodate their needs. When they left, I was left with way to much flower and am severely over the limit for inventory. What I'd like to do rather than destroy it is to give it away. If I understand the law correctly, I can "gift" up to 2.5oz to any person 21+ without compensation. Does placing an add on social media constitute "advertising" or "promotion"ing which conflicts with the law? Any case law on this? Other things to consider? Thx.
  5. Abanks4, Are you still in need of a CG? I'm near Holland and can provide organically grown, lab-tested (available upon request) top grade flower and various oils - Infused, full extract, RSO, topical (pain) creams, etc. If I can be of help, let me know.
  6. Ariel, I know it’s been a while, but are you still in need of a Caregiver? I’ve been a CG for 8+ years and have a variety of high quality tested meds. Thx. Mike
  7. Chris, are you still looking for a Caregiver? I’m N of Holland and just posted looking for a new patient. medmanmike
  8. 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.
  9. dwkl, I’ve called, left a message, and no one has gotten back to me. When is the office staffed? Thx.
  10. I'm curious. Is anyone tracking their cost to produce an oz?
  11. I'm a CG and have a grow room in my house. Is there anything in the law that would prevent me from setting up an "off-site" grow facility? Meaning, could I rent/lease a building that is not located on my property to set up a grow room? I would, of course, raise only the number of plants - 12/patient, legally allowed.
  12. I went on Sat. Other then the rosin press comment, I totally agree with your experience. The start times were screwed up, local staff didn't know bunny muffin. I had three maybe four different workers telling me what line to go to. Round and round waiting an hour to get in, etc. etc. No map of the layout of booths, no list of vendors, the Sat. seminars were nothing, every other booth was blasting music so loud you COULDN'T hear the person next to you. The biggest disappointed for me was there wasn't any seminars about our MMMA, the new laws, the new licenses (dispensaries, growers, etc.). This was a lost opportunity for those who know to bring everyone up to speed. There were individual booths for MiLeagalize and the Regulate Marihauna like Alcohol group. Why? They both had the same petitions. This was confusing people. Also, why didn't these groups have an informational seminar to promote, recruit and explain the legalization efforts? All in all a waste of my time and dollars. The one good thing: lots of free dabs! This was probably my last cup. Maybe I'm just getting to old ...
  13. I know this topic has been discussed here in the past, but I believe it's worth reviewing. The more people that know about this the better! The following is taken from the May 28, 2017 Canna Law Blog of the law firm Harris/Bricken. http://www.cannalawblog.com/jury-nullification-is-a-real-thing-and-you-should-know-about-it/?utm_source=Harris+Bricken+-+Canna+Law+Blog&utm_campaign=af3f26ae52-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f771927421-af3f26ae52-71351949 "Most people—and even many lawyers—are surprised to learn that juries are not required to follow the law. When a jury’s conscience takes over and tells it that someone does not deserve criminal punishment for his or her actions, regardless of the law, the jury can choose to acquit. In legal terms, this is known as “jury nullification“: a systemic public safeguard from government run amok. To the chagrin of prosecutors, when jury nullification occurs, the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause also prevents the acquitted person from being re-tried for the same charge."
  14. I've always been a "glass half full" kind of guy and have followed the "one in the hand is worth two in the bush" approach to life. Every step we take that loosens existing MJ laws helps establish more acceptance by the general public which that creates more acceptance, etc. Years ago I had a wise friend tell me that when struggling over making a decision that it's better to make a decision - even if it's not exactly what you want because you can always change or fine-tune the decision later. Change is slow and it always doesn't go exactly the way we want it but let's not forget where we started . . . My prediction is with the implementation of the new laws that LEO will be so busy monitoring all the new licensees, facilities, etc. that they won't have time for us little guys and will leave us alone. Sounds like a good thing to me.
  15. First, I need to update the Pot. Bicarb comment. After having read goods things about it for controlling PM I was really puzzled as to why the plant was burned so badly. I still need to review this, but upon reflecting I don't think I converted the ratio correctly. The jar calls for 1 Tbs of Green Cure to 1 gal of water. I'm now thinking I didn't convert from English to metric correctly ending up with to strong a product. I only made up 8 oz. worth. Here's what I used for the Vinegar and h2o2. Mix 4 tbs of apple cider vinegar with 1 gallon of water. Reapply every three days. One qt. H2O2 to 3 qts. water. Apply weekly. My source stated that a higher concentration of vinegar is better, but there is a risk to damaging the plants. I have used a 6 tbs to 1 gal mix without any negative issues.
  16. FWIW, I sprayed Green Cure (potassium bicarbonate) on a test plant (male, day 33 of veg) today (been fighting PM). I used the recommended amount - 1 tbs to a gallon. It burned the bunny muffin out of the leaves! Ive also been using hydrogen peroxide and apple cider vinegar at the recommended rate and neither seem to negatively effect the plants. The potassium bicarbonate fried the smaller, newer leaves the worse and I'm not sure if it will recover.
  17. TH, I'm in the same boat, i.e. back pain, can't sleep, etc. I can't recommend a strain, but the closer I get to a 1:1 ratio of THC/CBD the more effective the strain. I have noticed that a higher THC is needed, at least for me. High CDB low THC strains are very uncomfortable for me, especially in larger doses. Someone posted this on the 420mag site about "Interpening". Learning how to identify strains by their appearance (of the bud), smell, taste, etc. Lots of FAQs, videos, etc. Check it out http://www.trichomeinstitute.com/
  18. When I was in the classroom, I would use the following exercise to try to make a point with my students about the difference (if there is one) between a whopper and a little white lie. They're both a lie, right? So, you and your buddy find yourselves in a situation where there's a $10 bill and a $1.00 bill lying on the counter. Your buddy saw the $10 first and he pockets it. You take the $1.00. Both of you "stole" the money. Which one is a worse crime? Or, are they both the same, value not withstanding? We can justify and rationalize most anything, especially if I'm "better" than you, or richer, or more powerful, or, or, or.... Bottom line hypocrisy is just that: hypocrisy. Little ones or big ones it doesn't really matter.
  19. Of course, we all know the definition of "insanity", right?
