  1. Investing in Cannabis

    Hmm, I wonder if this could have anything to do with the fact that Goldman keeps touting GW as a "buy"...
  2. UGH. When I see the acronym CRMLA it reminds me of NAMBLA.
  3. Investing in Cannabis

    Pretty good article discussing the ways in which one can "add some greenery to your investment portfolio". https://twocents.lifehacker.com/how-to-invest-in-legal-weed-1822368702 I like the concluding advice: "Treat cannabis investing like edibles: Start low and go slow."
  4. Abstract from the Economic Journal, Nov 16, 2017. Here is a news article that discusses it: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jan/14/legal-marijuana-medical-use-crime-rate-plummets-us-study The original journal can be found here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/ecoj.12521/full (for fee, unless you use Sci-Hub)
  5. You like that fake news headline? Ok, what is really going on is that illegal outdoor grows in California (est 15,000 in Humboldt County alone) frequently use rat poison to protect their crops. Owls (spotted & barred, mostly) as the top predator eat the mice and eventually hemorrhage (which is how rat poison works, by inhibiting vitamin K and thus preventing blood clotting) and die. Here's an article about it. https://www.livescience.com/61403-marijuana-farms-dying-owls.html
  6. "Less fatal car accidents"? So the same number of accidents but they aren't as fatal? Methinks you meant "fewer fatal car accidents".
  7. CBD oil

    Haven't tried CBD tincture so can't help you, but please post here with any results you find (positive or negative) and for what conditions. We've tried high CBD herb with little success for addressing nausea or inflammation (and haven't had good results with THC tincture for recreational use.) Our best results for nausea has been with vaping THC oil. Note that you may be able to mail order CBD tincture so you should check out what is available online. But see here: https://www.leafly.com/news/politics/cbd-oil-legal-depends-ask

    Oh wow! I did a Meijer recall search and all that came up was for sliced apples. Thanks for the clarification! Update: I just went downstairs where my wife was eating a Fuji apple from Meijer! She had heard about the recall and didn't see anything on the 3lb bag, but it was from Riveridge. Think we're ok but will check it out further. So thanks again!

    Thanks for the PSA. Folks should also note that the recall applies only to sliced apple products, not whole apples.
  10. Interesting article from The Verge, discussing the complexity of cannabis testing. One interesting quote: https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/22/16808964/california-weed-laws-legal-prop-64-safe-labs
  11. On February 1, 2018 CVS will limit opioid prescriptions to seven days for certain conditions for new patients. They will also put a limit on pain pills they dispense based on their strength. Loss of profits from patients using cannabis instead of opioids is probably a tiny fraction of a percent (and only in a few states) compared to those new restrictions. And when cannabis is fully legal - as I said originally - "they will be quite capable at figuring out how to add cannabis moolah to their coffers", whether as a dispensed product with known component strengths (critical for a prescribed substance) or as an OTC herbal preparation. The only question is whether they will sell packaged herb - if they look at it more like tobacco because it is smoked then I doubt it (regardless of the differences between smoked cannabis & tobacco), but if they look at it more like an intoxicant like alcohol then certainly.
  12. There does seem to be an inverse correlation between opioid deaths and cannabis legalization. But it's total speculation to suggest that drug stores are losing money because of cannabis. What do you even base this assertion on?
  13. Drug stores make a butt load of money on vitamins and herbal supplements, not to mention quack medicine like homeopathy. I'm sure they will be quite capable at figuring out how to add cannabis moolah to their coffers, especially CVS who loses 2 billion a year on not selling tobacco.
  14. Anxiety and mm

    You can go to any dispensary with a hard card (they will also ask to see a license.) I've had good luck with some NW Detroit dispensaries (& especially like Hello.) But - since you mentioned paranoia & schizophrenia in an earlier post (be especially careful with medibles!) - if you are up to a trip to A2 I've heard good things about Om of Medicine. They have a doc on staff that can give you advice, just call ahead to see if he'll be there.
  15. Not getting what I need

    It never occurred to me when I had a caregiver that I was owed cannabis for free simply because I wasn't using all 12 plants that I had a right to grow or possess. But I know that other folks don't think like that. Either way, it sounds like you have a jerk for a CG. IMHO you should drop him immediately. Send a letter to LARA and to him and don't "bargain". Get your meds at a decent dispensary until you can find another CG. Grow your own if possible.
