Random Weed Growing Facts

home weed plantHave you ever visited one of your weed growing friends and wondered why their house was so cold? I have, and I always wanted to ask, “Man, why is it always so cool in your house”, but I never do because he has such good weed. You know, you have to be respectful to those who hook you up, right? You want them to continue sharing, right?

Well, I stumbled across this article the other day and it suddenly made more sense. Dude was keeping it cool for his plants. Can’t complain about that, right? We all love healthy weed. I mean, if it’s all for the herb I can put on a sweater or two.

Truth is, I don’t know what my problem is. My friends joke that I’m always cold. I can’t lie, I like to pretend I live on a tropical island. .. especially when I’m stoned. But now at least I know I’m not crazy, that house really is cold.

And while we are talking about growing some weed, here are few more things I learned on the I Love Growing Marijuana site:

– Young marijuana plants like humidity

– Cat piss can burn a plant

– Deer like to eat weed

– Ants are bad news for a marijuana plant

– These guys love growing weed almost as much as I love smoking it

I felt like such an expert on growing marijuana after I downloaded their free growing bible that I thought about growing my own. I mean I could have my own plant at home that I could smoke when I wanted, hell yeah! Then I remembered that I’d have to turn my thermostat down below 80. Damn, I think I just shivered. I think I’ll just continue toking on his homegrown. … With a sweater on.

Indica vs Sativa [infographic]

indica-vs-sativa-infographic

All cannabis is officially classified as Cannabis Sativa – even hemp. Cannabis Sativa can however be further divided into several sub-species, the main ones being: Cannabis indica, Cannabis sativa and Cannabis ruderalis.

Although superficially similar to one another, Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa plants are as alike as cider and champagne. This isn’t to say that one is superior to the other, rather that they each have their own distinct characteristics beyond certain surface similarities.

We’ve found that while many people are aware of indica and sativa strains, there seems to be uncertainty as to what exactly sets the two apart. So if you’re looking for a practical, quick-fire guide to some of the key differences, you’ll love this infographic.

Feds Raid Oaksterdam University [video]

Federal agents are carrying out an investigation at Oaksterdam University in Oakland this morning, Internal Revenue Service spokeswoman Arlette Lee said.

Swiss cannabis smokers will be allowed to grow four marijuana plants each

Cannabis smokers in Switzerland will soon be allowed to grow up to four marijuana plants each at home to stop them buying drugs on the black market.

In a bizarre twist to the new law, four people sharing a house can grow up to 16 plants – but only if each person tends to their own crop.

The deregulation of Switzerland’s already lax cannabis laws has been agreed by four neighbouring regions in the French-speaking part of the Alpine country.

A spokesman for the Neuchatel region said: ‘We have agreed these new rules to prevent drugs tourism between regions where the rules are different, and to stop them buying it on the streets.

‘But one person can not start growing more than four plants just by claiming they live with other people.

‘In this case, these other people have to actually be cultivating the plants themselves.

‘This means attending to the plant in such a way as to make it grow.’

Swiss daily Le Matin quipped: ‘This basically means that you can grow four more plants for every housemate you have – just as long as they know how to hold a watering can.’

The rules will apply in the cantons of Vaud, Neuchatel, Geneva and Fribourg from January 1 next year.

Canada: Child rapist to get less time than pot grower

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is getting tougher on pot growers than he is on rapists of children. Under the Tories’ omnibus crime legislation tabled Tuesday, a person growing 201 pot plants in a rental unit would receive a longer mandatory sentence than someone who rapes a toddler or forces a five-year-old to have sex with an animal.

Producing six to 200 pot plants nets an automatic six-month sentence, with an extra three months if it’s done in a rental or is deemed a public-safety hazard. Growing 201 to 500 plants brings a one-year sentence, or 1½ years if it’s in a rental or poses a safety risk.

The omnibus legislation imposes one-year mandatory minimums for sexually assaulting a child, luring a child via the Internet or involving a child in bestiality. All three of these offences carry lighter automatic sentences than those for people running medium-sized grow-ops in rental property or on someone else’s land.

A pedophile who gets a child to watch pornography with him, or a pervert exposing himself to kids at a playground, would receive a minimum 90-day sentence, half the term of a man convicted of growing six pot plants in his own home.

The maximum sentence for growing marijuana would double from seven to 14 years, the same maximum applied to someone using a weapon during a child rape, and four years more than for someone sexually assaulting a kid without using a weapon.
