In the event that "creationist nuts" are reading The Week in Weed, thanks for your examples of evolutionary hustle.

Re: “Out of the Shadows

"There's not a multi-celled organism on earth that could evolve much in 25 years." Check out Blue Moon butterfly. Also Darwin's poster bird, the medium ground finch. Wikipedia sez:

"The medium ground finch (Geospiza fortis) is a species of bird in the Thraupidae family. It is endemic to the Galapagos Islands... One of Darwin's finches, the species was the first which scientists have observed evolving in real-time.

In 1977, a severe drought reduced the supply of seeds in the Galapagos. The finch, which normally preferred small and soft seeds, was forced to turn to harder larger seeds. Subsequently, there has been a 10% change in the size of beak for these finches in a couple of generations." [i.e. 2 years]

[Off topic, I know, but the opening line gives fuel to the creationist nuts]

Re: “Paddleboards and Privilege

"And if the 420 Games is committed to ending stigmatization of responsible pot-smoking athletes, what is it doing for high school, college and professional sports players — many of them minorities — who turn to marijuana as an accessible and effective pain reliever, putting their careers at risk?"

--> FIRST... We are educating them to NOT USE CANNABIS if they are in high school and underage... Then we are educating college and older athletes that there are many methods of ingesting cannabis that is more healthy than smoking it...
In terms of the persecution they face, look at our Facebook page... We have fought to push information out to the public to help end the war these athlete's face from using cannabis...

I think you should scroll our Facebook page posts and you'll possibly glean a better outlook on what we are doing...

Happy to talk to you if you'd like!

Re: “Paddleboards and Privilege

Why do you think what we are doing lacks self awareness? I personally think you are wrongful making claims without enough information. The crowd in SF was a mixed bag, white, brown & black... And so was the golf tournament... All races were represented and in attendance... We are not focused on white or gentrified people... We are fighting FOR ALL PEOPLE.. This goes beyond cannabis and is a also a fight for ALL PEOPLE TO BE ALLOWED TO BE AND DO WHAT THEY WANT AS LONG AS IT DOES NOT HURT OTHERS.... For Gays, For Blacks & for cannabis users. No one should be subjected to prejudice and judgement for being who they are as long as it does not hurt other people.

I'd be happy to speak with you and give you more insight on our missions, but until you actually have a conversation with me about why I'm doing this I think you are wrong to be making statements like "it's like an expression of white privilege completely lacking self-awareness."

I'd appreciate if you would expand upon your reasoning for that statement?

Re: “Registration Day

Also, for people that are interested in shortening the amount of time that their backyards are near unusable because of the stench of growing weed, I've found a trick that works well! Plain old fashioned Hemp plants! You want pollen dispensing males growing around your yard. The stench of growing weed comes from the resin that pollen starved female buds are producing. By providing pollinators in your neighborhood, the duration of the stench is greatly reduced! And no, industrial hemp doesn't stink. Hemp seeds are irradiated here in the states prior to importation, but I've found that you can get a five to ten percent sprouting rate from raw, commercially available seeds (I do a lot of sprouting for food and was curious!) Once your plants mature, you can save seeds and distribute them to you neighbors that are also tired of the pervasive neighborhood stench that is destroying our back yards. Retired gardeners unite for a stench free backyard! As a bonus, I am playing with the stalks as a natural paper substitute. It's harder than it sounds to make paper on a small scale, but it's fun to try...

Re: “Registration Day

I, for one, can barely wait for the Feds to legalize recreational canabis. Most users are too lazy to grow or make their own vice, whether it be tobacco, weed, or alcohol. Legalization will drastically lower the cost, and Giants in the industry will use economies of scale to out produce the locals just like giant tobacco does now. When they have crowded out the myriad growers in it for obscene, forest destroying profit, that will leave very few in business in Humbolt County! Sure, just like Humbolt has more boutique craft beer breweries and probably a few more home brewers than the average per capita California county, there will be a few more growers here than elsewhere. But that number will be MUCH smaller than the numbers of growers here now. Property values will stabilize without illegal grows, and the damage to our environment will slow. People will be able to hike and hunt and fish without fear in our forests, and the heavy stench of growing cannabis will slow to a trickle.

Re: “To Toke, or Not to Toke

Thanks for the informative writing.

I, too, celebrated the findings in Shakespeare's backyard.
Could the stimulus behind Midsummer Night's Dream be any more clear.
Dude, he was loaded.....and talented enough to write it all down.
Better memory than I have.

The question remains whether or not pot will be decriminalized before I die.

Hurry. I'm 69.

Re: “The Weeds of Law

It would not be hard to decriminalize marijuana and simply enforce the existing laws. Anything less then decriminalization is part and parcel of the Eco green fascism trickling down from the UN sponsored economic shift from industrialization to the Eco fascist agenda. Gav is foot soldier dispatched to hoodwink us.

Re: “Growing a Greener Bud

Check out AG 101 for Bulk soil made local and it lasts seven years and holds water so it saves our water resources TOO plus our totes are recycled also!!!

Re: “Growing a Greener Bud

I never could figure out why growers don't buy in bulk but I was happy to see photos of one bust where Fox Farm bags were laying about; yay for shopping local? Just a suggestion but, perhaps the horticulture shops might have drop-off bins at their shops where customers could drop bags for use by those who need them for trash and such. I use cloth grocery bags so find myself scrounging for bags to use for trash. I use soil bags when I have them. I use my cat food bags and anything else I can find. Some of us don't use quite so much soil in our daily lives would be happy to use someone else's bags and keep them from the landfill.

Re: “Growing a Greener Bud

Most responsible people either recycle the bags, or are smart an order truckloads of soil. Local soil.

Re: “Are you Experienced? ™

Larger water storage tanks, deeper wells, new MJ regs, will only delay the inevitable that could be coming sooner than we think.

Another generation of the usual unregulated abuses of the so-called "rural Lifestyle" could be all that's left unless new water use and impact regulations start applying to everyone.

Re: “Checking Out

I have a similar incident that happened this past week when me and my girlfriends family decided to take a trip to Disneyland we booked our trip at the Stanford Inn in Anaheim California, we got in on a Wednesday evening around 4 and already booked our trip online, we stayed the night and woke up Thursday morning to go to Disneyland, around 11 we got a call from the manager Todd Kahile who informed us that our room smelled like marijuana, and that we need to leave the hotel, when we got back to talk to the manager we asked him to show us the Odor, when we went up to the room he refused to go inside to smell and said he could smell it from outside I had my girlfriends grandpa, and grandma go in the room to see if they smelled marijuana but they both said they couldn't smell a thing, when we tried to tell the manager no one smoked marijuana in the room he refused to listen and instantly said we were kicked off private property he than said we were getting charged a $300 smoking additonally to the 3 nights we payed for even though we were evicted and had to leave after only 1 night I asked him to talk man to man but he gave me no chance not only did he charge my girlfriend $300 for a smoking fee and 2 nights that we didn't stay , he decided to charge my girlfriends grandparents for 2 nights even though they only stayed for 1 in the end of all this Todd the manager admitted that he was charging her grandparents for guilty by association (which makes no sense) And my girlfriend the two fees because of the way we came about the situation. Overall I feel that it was a scam for quick cash because if I smoked marijuana in the room you would for sure be able to smell it ( which no one could smell) and if I actually did I wouldn't care to pay the fee, it's not about the money it's the principle of the situation

Re: “Party On

A quick look at your music profile on facebook John and I see you have Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Three dog Nights, CCR. Maybe you should quit listening to music from people who threw their futures away.

I find nothing funny about "hard core stoners".

It is a sad, waste of a human life. So many people throwing their futures away.
