Unfortunately, Republicans will do anything to stop full legalization There might be a Dem or two opposing. Repealing the filibuster can help. 

I don't see this as a strict party line vote. I could be wrong. I know some gop are not anti weed. I know some democrats were. libertarians have  long had on their platform that the war on drugs was immoral.

prohibitions do not have a great success rate. I am Green party and the Green Party (love the sound of that!) has long called for an end to the war on drugs.

If I identified with a political party it would be Green.

What kinda pisses me off, is in a state like Illinois where mj is newly legal you can't grow plants (less you have medical card and permission).  Feels blatantly like a money move to benefit chain stores and the tax base.  In a more perfect world, people would use  responsibly and grow their own.  Education and positive social pressure.  Neither demonized nor overly praised, rather treated w/ respect, knowing its benefits and pitfalls.  

 

This fall that might be a project of mine.  There's an online place that has 3 seeds for $30, autoflowering, short plant, pleasant blueberry smell.  Growing seems easy, flowering and proper harvest seems to take some care, but growing a single refugee plant, might be fun.  & a chance to make inexpensive tincture.

I've always wondered about the interaction of plants and human consciousness. Certain mind altering plants, like cannabis and mushrooms, seem to exert an effect or control over many people not unlike spiritual possession. For instance, plenty of people who smoke cannabis also wear a lot of hemp, have cannabis T shirts, posters, etc. There is an entire cannabis culture. I enjoy a good whiskey, but I would never have whiskey shirts, posters, hats, attend whiskey musical conferences, etc.

Cannabis is fully legal here in NM. Possess and grow your own are perfectly fine. 
 

One Santa Fe County Commissioner tried to restrict home grow to indoors only since she was concerned about water usage and odor. Cannabis is very drought tolerant and six plants is a drop in the bucket compared to the insane development of multi million dollar houses in the county. After phone calls from a number of residents the commission backed off. 
 

Forget autoflower and starting to cultivate now unless indoors is an option. Cannabis is very light sensitive whereby bud production begins right around summer solstice. Mine began producing buds about a week before solstice and average 3-4 ft in height. Will be potting up to 10 gal containers this week and adding more phosphorus based plant food. 
 

A friend of mine grew a 10 ft one last year. Yield was 10.5 lbs. :lol:

 

Home grow is a tradition around here going back decades.

some states are deep in the dark ages, and not even allowing medical use without jumping through hoops!!

 

and where either form is allowed there are  money grubbers that want to become millionaires overnight form rip-off profits

Texas was one of the most draconian states around and from what I hear legalization will happen in the next few years. Austin is the driving force behind full legalization which means big bucks. 

 

Already Texas is feeling the squeeze from Colorado, NM and Oklahoma ( medical only). Texans hang out around dispensaries here asking card holders to purchase Cannabis for them. That will change 4-22 when anyone can purchase from any dispensary.

cool, but I'm dreaming of a small (trained) plant in a small container, w/ little bonsai buds.  An oz or less is dandy.  It's illegal to grow here and exotic enough to get the folks talking if found.

I’ve had luck with autos, indoors and out. You have to treat autos differently than regular weeds. Do not transplant, top, over water or feed. Pm me if you want.

Here 6 mature and 6 immature plants are allowed at anyone time. Legal to have whatever each plant produces. Will be making Rick Simpson oil. Removed a precancerous spot from my face two years ago with a concentrate.

once back in the day. some hazy decade,, somewhere between Del Rio and Big Bend, I had a casual conversation with a compadre; and I suggested that the day would come along when the mota could very well travel the other direction. That bluegrass is where it's at, I told him. and he dismissed that out of hand, literally, and said, that'll be the day my friend.

Potted up to larger pots from 5 gal. yesterday. I should have done it a month ago since all were root bound. Made my own mix which should work well. Happy Frog mix, ( Humboldt County) organic compost, composted steer manure.

sounds good.

I've tried to turn a few of my friends on to Fox Farms in the past and they were like naw, we good, we got miracle grow and twenty year old chicken poop :lol: 

I knew it was best to let the conversation end. 

my guess is you consistently produce quality herb :)

Miracle Grow is crap! Synthetic fertilizers are not good for water systems or the soil for that matter. Nitrate runoff pollutes wells and ground water.

 

I also use Gro-Power which is about as close to organic as you can get. NPK is well balanced and doesn't push trees, shrubbery, perennials or annuals, cannabis loves it too.

Encephalon, you've inspired me.  Finally pulled the trigger and ordered 3 Blueberry autoflowering seeds.  To honor my coming 57th birthday,  grow one little plant bonsai style.  See how it goes and grows.

By bonsa-ing I'm just thinking of a heavy 90 degree tilt.  I read good things about such training.

3 seeds ?   Only 3  ?  .  I wonder how much that  costs ?

 

A friend of mine ordered these so called special seeds, with 'guarantee ' ,  'will be female '  etc etc BS ordered in from Holland   , they cost a huge amount and he was showing them  to me  and complained that not many had germinated .  I looked at the remainder  ....

 

" Dude !  Some of these sides are not even matured ! "   - small, green , you could squash them between your fingers .

Are the seeds sativa or indica? Indica is easier to grow due to a shorter flowering time. Watch out for pathogens since it sounds like you are growing indoors. Botrytis cinerea or bud rot will devastate your grow and biologicals are the best for controlling pathogens..

Moved from the Turning 61 thread.

 

3 Seeds were $30, but got a $6 discount so $24, but wait! shipping was an expensive $10, so $34, so $11.50 a seed, not so fast paying with a credit card meant getting 3 extra mystery seeds.  So kinda $6 a seed, but I'm hoping all I need is one.  That it germinates and gets me a dried oz or 2.  I am a man of simple needs. 

 

I picked the Blueberry something because they seemed like ideal indoor plants.  Self flowering, short, low smell, probably a hybrid of indica and sativa as I recall.  <90% indica but I'm mellow w/ that>

 

My plan is old school- grab one, throw in my mouth, and swish it around for a bit.  The acids and saliva should soften the outer coding, change its RNA and establish a telepathic link with the plant.  This way if I'm ever in trouble, say getting arrested I can call to it for help.  Course being a plant it can't move or talk or do much. 

 

Still 20 years later when I'm in prison I'll notice a guard who seem a little dopey.  I'll call to him, say 'Let me out'.  He'll nod and say 'Why not.'  And I'll be free thanks to the plant's progenitor.  Thus, best $34 I've ever spent.

I have been curious about something for a long time in regard to this plant. I've always noticed it has attracted somewhat renegade personalities. You guys think that could be in relation to the plants usage itself being rooted in tantric culture pharmacology understanding? I mean it kinda came from nepal...tibetan region about 7000-8000 years ago. Of course this is a theory coming out of a growers manual that is At least 10 years old now. Just curious I work at a medical dispensary...and I just notice all the Client Le just push the envelope endlessly so. Especially by way of coming in at the last minute, but then again if it indeed does come from the tantric peoples perhaps that plays into the whole Anuttara "outlaw" ways of thinking. Maybe I'm taking it too literally lol.
