10% of America Now Has Legal Marijuana

In case you haven’t heard, legal weed was the big winner in yesterday’s elections. Alaska, Oregon, and the District of Columbia all voted to legalize some form of recreational marijuana.

Like in Colorado and Washington, retail marijuana won’t see daylight until 2015, as each state now needs to form rules, regulations, and decide exactly how their programs will function. But in theory, thanks to these states, 10% of Americans live in states or cities where holding and smoking weed is all legal.

Internationally, Guama also voted in favor of medical marijuana. Unfortunately, Florida’s medical marijuana bill didn’t receive the necessary 60% of votes to pass, falling just short of its magic number.

Still, all told, November 4 was another major and historic victory for green. It’ll be interesting to see how the Senate and Congress–now in total Republican control–decide to act (if it all) on marijuana.

Because our nation’s gone green and it’s not going back.

The Legend of Legends: G13

g13

In the world of cannabis folklore, there is one origin story that goes above and beyond all others.  A strain of cannabis that could have very well been overshadowed by its own birth. Government research, a certain plant somehow being “liberated”, and a trip around the world.  All the makings of a legend. This variety of cannabis is none other than the fabled G13 cutting of cannabis. Since its liberation it has become a pillar of cannabis genetics and remains to be a part of many of today’s prized varieties.

g13

Believe it or not, The United States actually has a Government Research Facility in which studies on Cannabis are carried out. This research center is at Ol’ Miss, The University Of Mississippi. It was said that during the inception of this program, different strains of cannabis were brought in for different types of testing and research. Somehow, some way, a single cutting of a plant supposedly from that government project was “liberated” from the facility and placed in hands that eventually nursed the cutting back to health and perpetuated the clone to enough people, thus starting the legend of the G13. There are a couple different stories as to why the plant ended up being called “G13”. One goes that it was taken from “Greenhouse 13” and another goes with the notion that it was the 13th plant in row G of some growroom at the facility.

The Plant originally gained notoriety for its high resin production, said to be one of the highest at the time. The original cutting was said to smell of grass clippings and burnt rubber. One of the earliest commercial seed breeders to obtain the G13 cutting noticed that she passed on her most desirable trait of high resin production and when crossed to other plants. The pure indica Afghanica type plant has been used in many of the great hybrids of modern cannabis genetics such as the G13Haze, LemonG13, G13 x Hash Plant aka Mr. Nice, and MK Ultra. As far as we know, the original G13 is no longer available in its pure form, as the plants were old, lost vigor, and eventually died. There are still G13 hybrids available to this day in seed and clone form, and they are always worth taking a look at if you are looking for something different to grow that gives a shout back to when the modern cannabis genepool was just coming of age.

The Grinch Who Stole Halloween

Monkey Bars are delicious that’s a fact.

Authorities in Prince George County, Maryland have seized several boxes of marijuana-infused candy in advance of Halloween.  Unfortunately there will be no treats for those Marylanders who were hoping to enjoy Halloween with some infused candy, only a cruel trick.

Chocolate Bar

The seized candy had apparently come from the West Coast and Colorado, unsurprisingly.  This was a good batch too, as police reported that each piece of candy contained 100 mg of THC – a serious punch.  The haul included mint chocolate bars, taffy, blueberry chocolate bars and banana walnut chocolate bars.  What a delicious travesty to have all this candy wasted.

Narcotic Enforcement Division Asst. Cmdr. Captain Chuck Hamby said “This is the first time we’ve seen this product in Prince George’s County.”  Maryland recently decriminalized marijuana but it is not legalized.

Strain Highlight: Gorilla Glue #4

gorilla glue

Spawned by gifted grower/breeder “Joesy Whales” and spread throughout the underground by only word of mouth, the Glue is making waves in the cannabis community. With a Cannabis cup win already under its belt and seeds finally starting to come to market, the masses will soon know what Gorilla Glue #4 is, or what we already in the know simply call it… The Glue.

The Glue wasn’t something Joesy was aiming for.  A chem’s sis x Sour Dubble hybrid he had been working on showed intersex traits which in turn pollinated a Chocolate Diesel Female that was also in the same room. Through that accidental pollination and germinating some of the resulting seeds, the Gorilla Glue #4 came to be. The taste is indescribable, and varies from person to person who have had the pleasure of sampling the buds from Glue harvests. I can only describe it as a chocolate kushy earthy taste with hints of Elmer’s glue. The taste relates to the aroma of the buds pretty well. Due to its uniqueness, yield, potency, and all around top shelf quality of the cutting, it was able to secure a 1st place “Best Hybrid” win at the Los Angeles Cannabis Cup in 2014. Gorilla Glue #4 has only been around in the scene since 2012 roughly, and is only starting to gain the recognition it deserves. Be on the lookout for these amazing buds, as you will not be disappointed with a properly grown batch of the Glue.

Catnip Joints Hit the Market

Catnip

Cat people rejoice! Texas Company Stark Raving Cat has provided you with a way to enjoy a joint with your feline friend, sort of.  Your joint can be filled with delicious sticky marijuana, but your cat’s is rolled with Nepeta Cataria, otherwise known as catnip.  This is a real product I kid you not. It’s actually pretty funny to watch the frenzy of a cat on ‘nip.  Catnip has really powerful, some would even say psychedelic effects on cats.  

“The common behaviors when cats sense the bruised leaves or stems of catnip are rubbing on the plant, rolling on the ground, pawing at it, licking it, and chewing it. Consuming much of the plant is followed by drooling, sleepiness, anxiety, leaping about and purring. Some growl, meow, scratch, or bite at the hand holding it.” Wikipedia

So basically your cat cat is going to be a hot mess like a tornado of teeth and nails. You can get your Catnip Joints at the Stark Raving Cat website, ten dollars for a box of five.  But they come with a pretty strict set of instructions.  These are the instructions verbatim from the company’s website:

“To use: Wake up your cat. Run a joint under your cat’s nose, like a fine cigar. Toss a joint toward your cat, high in the air, like prey. Then toss another, and another, and another…”

So long as you can follow that then you and your cat or probably cats you weird cat person can enjoy some of Mother Nature’s finest.

What’s next – Doggy Blunts?  Wait actually that’s genius!

Wiz Khalifa Photobongs the Dog Whisperer

Tss tss! Wiz Khalifa has a dog named Vincent. To help train Vincent, Wiz called upon the services of Cesar Milan aka the “Dog Whisperer.”

Wiz posted a pic of the duo to IG, and it might be the first celebrity “Photobong” of all time. Cesar’s eyes are lookin a little Asian and he’s throwing up some signs, so maybe Wiz hit em with a dab of some Hardcore OG.

The bong looks like an Illadelph, but I’m more intrigued by Wiz’s shirt because…Mike Tyson:

Do you think the Dog Whisperer was smoking that Alien Dawg or an innocent photobong victim?
