  2. B.C. nurses call on feds to decriminalize drugs as opioid overdoses climb Supplies to be used by drug addicts fill baskets as nurse Arvita Cotter prepares for a shift at the Insite safe injection clinic in Vancouver, B.C., on Monday April 18, 2011. (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck) CTV Vancouver Island Published Tuesday, July 17, 2018 B.C.'s nurses are calling for significant changes to how the federal government treats illicit opioids – including decriminalization of the drugs. The BC Nurses Union issued a news release Tuesday saying it wants the federal government to declare the opioid crisis a national public health emergency. It's also calling for the decriminalization of personal possession on all opioids – and wants Ottawa to provide users access to a safe supply. “There is a growing concern among nurses across B.C. that more needs to be done,” says Christine Sorensen, the president of BC Nurses’ Union. “The preventable death of Comox’s Ryan Hedican as just one example of the devastating toll the crisis is taking on families and communities.” Sorensen argues Ottawa can reduce preventable deaths like Hedican's by declaring a national public health emergency under the Emergencies Act. So far, the federal government has responded to the crisis by easing rules to allow the expansion of supervised injection sites and making naloxone available without a prescription. However, Sorensen believes they need to do more. “B.C. has some of the most progressive harm reduction programs and policies and has been a leader in promoting supervised injection sites,” she says. “Yet the province continues to face one of the worst overdose crises in the country – almost 2,000 British Columbians died of preventable opioid overdose in 2016 and 2017. And in March of this year, we saw overdoses spike to 160, the second highest monthly toll in the province’s history.” In the wake of Hedican’s death, a petition was made calling for decriminalization and safe access. The petition will be presented to the House of Commons. The Ministry of Health and Addiction issued a statement Tuesday saying people who are addicted to drugs should not be considered criminals, and should receive treatment just like those with other health conditions. "Minister Judy Darcy has brought up the need for a courageous conversation around drug policy with her federal and provincial counterparts. We recognize that the Criminal Code is a federal matter, and our government is doing all we can to respond to the overdose crisis to save lives and link people to treatment where and when they need it," the statement said. "We are taking immediate action to increase the availability of naloxone and to increase access to a full spectrum of treatments so that people can ask for help once, and get help fast." https://vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca/b-c-nurses-call-on-feds-to-decriminalize-drugs-as-opioid-overdoses-climb-1.4017265
  3. Some Recreational Cannabis Products to Remain Banned Under New Canada Law By Jen Skerritt and Josh Wingrove July 18, 2018 A key segment of Canada’s marijuana industry will remain banned for up to a year after the drug becomes legal for recreational use — making it harder for Justin Trudeau to kill off the black market. Edibles, beverages, and pot for vaping are among products that will still be outlawed when the drug is legalized on Oct. 17. The government has said it wants more time to address the “unique risks” around that slice of the market, including quality control, dosage, portion sizes and packaging. Until then, a vital part of the market will remain on hold, which could undermine the government’s stated goal of legalization — starving out illicit trade. Products from THC-infused lollipops to cookies and truffles are already available online in Canada and through dispensaries that aren’t sanctioned by the government. “You either switch to what we provide, or you stick with the illicit market,” said Bruce Linton, chief executive officer of Canopy Growth Corp., Canada’s largest marijuana producer, said in a telephone interview. Deloitte said in a June report there’s been an “explosion of interest” in edibles such as hard candies, beverages, ice cream and baked goods. Deloitte estimates that six out of 10 consumers will consume pot in this form, eventually becoming a key part of a legal cannabis market that is projected to reach about C$4.3 billion ($3.3 billion) in its first year. Raise Eyebrows The government has already been urged to make such products available more quickly to allow legal suppliers to compete with the “same diversity of products” available on the black market, according to a summary of consultations. “We will have a consultation in the fall and we will adopt the regulations for edibles in 2019,” Mathieu Filion, a spokesman for Canada’s health minister, said in an email. The government has chosen to initially legalize products that “won’t cause eyebrows to raise” and introduce others incrementally to be more effective against taking out the illicit market, Linton said. That will give companies like Canopy “breathing room” as it and others prepare products for the initial launch this fall, he said. Vape Pens Last year, Corona beer seller Constellation Brands Inc. bought a minority stake in Canopy. Rivals such as The Green Organic Dutchman plan to develop a product-testing and manufacturing center to explore using cannabis in everything from iced teas, juices and sports drinks. Linton said he expects different products will be allowed as of “mid-2019.” Edibles could account for about 10 percent of Canada’s market once the government allows for a broader range of products to be sold legally, Matt Bottomley, a Toronto-based analyst at Canaccord Genuity Corp, said in a phone interview. “You’re not going to convert them into a legal customer or legal patient until you have the product classifications that will appeal to them,” he said. “Vape pens, edibles, beverages, things like that still need to be formulated in a version of this legislation.” https://www.insurancejournal.com/news/international/2018/07/18/495452.htm
  4. 07/17/2018 14:30 EDT | Updated 19 hours ago U.S. Border Officials Might Already Know All About Your Cannabis Use Records of your legal purchases or weed-related employment history may reach the border long before you do. By Kyla Lee 07/17/2018 Since the legalization of recreational cannabis, cross-border travel has been on the minds of many Canadians. The United States government still considers cannabis to be an illegal drug, and those who admit to using cannabis or working in the cannabis industry may be subject to a lifetime ban on entry into the United States. Right now, we do not know much about what will happen when Canadians involved with recreational cannabis attempt to enter the United States, other than that it will cause a host of problems. And with relations between Canada and the United States strained over trade and tariffs, those concerns are at an all-time high. Christopher Morris - Corbis via Getty Images Cars line up to enter the United States at the Peace Arch border crossing, between British Columbia and Washington State. Why can the United States deny entry to legal cannabis users? Despite the fact that many states have legalized recreational cannabis, marijuana is still considered an illegal drug because drugs are regulated federally, and not by individual states. The United States is the birthplace of the war on drugs, and law enforcement operates on the assumption that the sale and distribution of cannabis is connected to violent crime. Canadians who use marijuana or who earn their income from the sale of cannabis are effectively admitting to what amounts to a criminal act under American law. The United States is entitled to pass laws as it sees fit, even if its laws are in conflict with other countries. And where those laws conflict, such as will be the case with Canada and marijuana, the sovereign state has the right to deny entry to those who violate their laws, even if it occurs outside the country. Questions about employment in the cannabis industry could be fatal to a request to enter the United States, as could answers that reveal the use of cannabis. Think of how Canada prosecutes individuals who travel outside Canada to engage in child sex tourism, and how it can deny entry to individuals who participate in those activities even where they are considered lawful. How can border officials determine a person is a cannabis user or worker? Typically, a border agent will ask a person questions to determine whether they are inadmissible. Questions about employment in the cannabis industry could be fatal to a request to enter the United States, as could answers that reveal the use of cannabis. But border officials do not always have to ask these questions to determine whether a person is inadmissible because of cannabis use. One way that Canadians could be denied entry may be by way of their driving record. Convictions for cannabis-impaired driving offences could lead to a denial of entry. Similarly, administrative prohibitions for drugged driving can also have an impact. There are also concerns that U.S. border officials may have access to Canadian information about the purchase and sale of recreational cannabis. Canadian provinces will keep various databases, including online purchase records and registered grow operation records. Canadian registries of marijuana purchases have been alleged to be potential sources intended to be used by federal border offices in the U.S. to deny entry. Even the U.S. Patriot Act permits border officials to access information like credit card data. Bloomberg via Getty Images A recent Supreme Court of Canada decision might be able to put a stop to that. A challenge to an application for disclosure of evidence in a tobacco company lawsuit might put the brakes on the United States having access to this information as it related to lawful cannabis. The British Columbia government sued tobacco companies for recovery of health care costs. In the course of the lawsuit, the tobacco companies sought production of health care records contained in provincial databases. The Supreme Court of Canada determined that because those records are part of private medical records, they were exempt from disclosure. As a result of this Supreme Court decision, U.S. border guards may not have access to cannabis records much longer. However, there may be a way around the results of this decision. The need to share this information may nevertheless win out over privacy rights. The level of privacy expected at the border is very low. Moreover, because the issue arguably relates to national security and the drug trade can be considered a national security issue, the need to share this information may nevertheless win out over privacy rights. Nevertheless, there is at least a foothold from which Canada can position itself to protect its citizens by denying access to this data. If American authorities are capable of accessing this information, and our governments are aware of the potential consequences, governments should think twice about what type of information they retain about cannabis purchasers and employees — even collecting or storing it at all. This would be a relief to many Canadians hoping to light up after Oct. 17, 2018, the date cannabis is expected to become legal. It is important to bear in mind that Canada and the provinces do not keep records of who purchases alcohol — so why would it be necessary to keep records for cannabis after its legalization? Inevitably, this decision will have an impact on how cannabis data is collected, stored, accessed — and possibly shared — by government. One thing is clear: this Supreme Court decision is a step in the right direction toward protecting Canadians from border-related consequences in relation to lawful cannabis. https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/kyla-lee/us-canada-border-marijuana_a_23481830
  5. West Vancouver votes to prohibit cannabis shops and production West Vancouver has become the latest municipality in Metro Vancouver to ban all cannabis retail and production facilities within its boundaries. 'Things move slowly in West Vancouver,' says mayor, who promises new regulations in the fall Justin McElroy · CBC News Updated: July 17, 2018 The municipality of West Vancouver says the bylaw would allow companies to still apply to operate in their jurisdiction, but it would have to go through rezoning. ( Patrick T. Fallon/Bloomberg) West Vancouver has become the latest municipality in Metro Vancouver to ban all cannabis retail and production facilities within its boundaries. By unanimous vote, councillors decided that no businesses could apply to set up in the municipality without a rezoning hearing. Staff will begin working on a larger regulatory framework that could allow retail operations without rezoning, but that won't be presented to council until after legalization and municipal elections in October. "I think staff are on the right track, and we're moving forward, but as per usual, a little on the slow side," said coun. Nora Gambioli. In its cannabis legislation passed earlier this year, the provincial government has given municipalities veto power over approving retail licences. Residents in municipalities with bans will still be able to purchase cannnabis through a government-run website. B.C. unveils pot plans: marijuana to be sold in standalone government stores, separate from liquor Jim Bailey, West Vancouver's director of planning, emphasized that the city could still allow businesses to set up shop. "In a way, it's prohibition light," he said, arguing there was no confusion over passing the bylaw and telling businesses they are still welcome to work with the municipality. "Staff don't believe it's contradictory. By not allowing them outright … it gives you an added level of control." West Vancouver council approved a prohibition on cannabis retail facilities on July 16, 2018. (Justin McElroy/CBC) Several cities have bans The municipality becomes the latest in Metro Vancouver to put a pre-emptive prohibition on non-medicinal cannabis sales before it becomes legal on Oct. 17. Maple Ridge, Delta and Richmond are among those with complete bans on retail operations, all opting to wait for legalization before beginning any process for allowing stores to open. White Rock passed a retail ban in January, but has since moved forward on public hearings to allow one in the town centre. As legalization looms, more Metro Vancouver cities outlaw dispensaries and cannabis production "Why are we [adding] a bylaw in July when October and November is when you would need something in place?" said Ian Dawkins, president of the Cannabis Commerce Association of Canada, which represents small producers. "Can't we have months of public hearings and fact finding?" With the Lower Mainland a patchwork of different municipalities, he said jurisdictions that lag behind in allowing retail and production facilities would lose business to those that have already set up regulatory regimes. "If you're West Vancouver, Squamish has a bylaw just north of you, North Vancouver will be putting something in place. It's not like there's not going to be any legal cannabis in West Vancouver, all there's going to be is a lack of jobs, a lack of opportunities," he said. "You can't hand wave it away and kick it too the next municipal government, which is a lot of what's going on here." But Mayor Michael Smith characterized their pace as reflective of the municipality's political culture. "Once staff have completed their review, we will have rules and regulations as to how we move forward ... we don't mind playing catchup, as long as we eventually catch up," he said. "Things move slowly in West Vancouver, but eventually we get there. And when we do get there, we want to make sure we have the right regulations in place." https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/west-vancouver-cannabis-ban-1.4749554

    My Top 9 Marijuana Growing Tips

    Hi Chronreviews, welcome to CC. I have had to remove your links as CC does not allow advertising on the forums. If you wish to advertise please contact Cannabis Culture advertising department, it has a Link on the website. So a tip for you is read the rules before posting please. Miracle grow is owned by Scott and Monsanto, the people who are genetically modify plants, cannabis as well, so they can patent them and stop you from growing them unless you want to pay a lot of money for the seeds, as well as spraying dicamber and other nasty herbicides and pesticides all over our food and our planet, slowly poisoning us all. Do not buy any products that are made by Scott or have the name miracle in it or general hydroponics, you are only contributing to the destruction of our planet and everyone's health. Why not put all your garden waste into a composter or worm bin and reduce your costs, worms will eat your paper trails, and you will have some great soil. This is not a very reliable way to see if your plants are ready for harvest. Its better to check the trichomes with a magnifier, they should be at least 50% milky in color, if the majority are clear it's too early to harvest.
  8. DEATH VALLEY, Calif. (KTNV) - Over 4,000 illegal marijuana plants were found in Death Valley National Park during a raid by the National Park Service on July 3. NPS officials say that hikers encountered three men installing an irrigation hose near a spring in Hanaupah Canyon. The hikers thought that the men worked for NPS, so they asked the men what they were doing. One of the men answered, "Growing cannabis You won't tell the cops, will you?" Rangers from NPS and the Bureau of Land Management raided the site on July 3. They found four garden plots but no workers. “Even though California and Nevada have passed laws legalizing marijuana sale, it remains illegal at the federal level," said Superintendent Mike Reynolds. "Our biggest concerns in Death Valley are that grow sites decimate vegetation around springs, poison wildlife, and are dangerous for the public.” Workers on the illegal grow site cleared away vegetation to make room for crops, and diverted water from nearby springs for the garden plots. Each marijuana plant can use up to six gallons of water per day. Rangers were especially worried about finding carbofuran, which is a pesticide that's highly toxic to humans and wildlife.

    My Top 9 Marijuana Growing Tips

    Hey Homies! Here's My Top 9 Growing Tips... Top 9 Marijuana Growing Tips 1. DO NOT Tell People. (Silent Pride) You can and will be extremely proud of your accomplishments as you successfully harvest your homegrown marijuana. KEEP YOUR SECRET. Ever heard of jealousy? Divorce? Revenge? - People listen and always want to feel important, don't make it their gossip. Protect your investment - Shut-up. 2. Keep Everything Clean (Spotless) This means you too! Your tools, your floors, your walls, everything. It pays when there are no bugs, or disease, or an environment for them to spread. This is truly under-rated - wash your hands upon entry everyday. 3. Grow from Quality Seeds. Your final product is 90% dependent upon it's genetics. Be prepared to be disappointed using unknown seeds. 4. Develop a Quality Soil. When you begin your garden, develop a soil that works well for you. Start with just Miracle-Grow Potting Soil if you wish. PH should balance around 6.5 for most cannabis plants. 5. DO NOT Over Water (Most common mistake) Too much water can kill young marijuana plants. Following germination, allow the surface to get crusty. Stick your finger 3-4 inches under the soil, if no moisture, then water thoroughly. Sink water should sit open for 24 hours or more to release chlorine among other potentially harmful sediments. 6. DO NOT Over Fertilize (2nd most common mistake) If your soil contains certain nutrients, do not add more of these with your watering schedule. When adding nutrients to your water, - apply every other watering. The vegetative stage likes more Nitrogen, and the flowering stage like more Phosphates and less Nitrogen. 7. Provide a Superior Growing Environment. Temperature, humidity, air circulation and personal attention are all vital areas that can make for a most stress free growing environment (or not). Work to keep these consistent. Play music to your garden and have a mild breeze pass around the room during certain hours. Invest in their individual happiness, and you will prosper greatly in your future satisfaction. 8. Keep Disposal Separate. Keep all of the trash from your garden in separate bags from your other refuse (includes anything). Dispose of all your garden garbage into an available commercial dumpster when needed. Be sure to remove and destroy any paper trail items. A fireplace can be a wonderful amenity to a residential property. 9. DO NOT Harvest Too Early! This can be tough. Be patient, you have waited Andrew nurtured for this long. Your plants can probably gain weight by waiting too. To be sure, wait until 50% of the pistils have turned brown and you know you won't be early. Happy Growing Homies!

    Shout back to 2000-2002

    Changed for the worse imo and got real slow. Mikey chased off all the good old guys.
  14. That's what I was thinking while I was writing that. Could be many reasons as I'm sure they gathered info as well plus not only that but they also got paid to get that info as in permits, permits and more permits... not? I'm sure that there are many that benefited from the info gathered.

    LED light burn?

    Looking good! I use short pieces of twist tie to loosely lash the grow tips to the screen. As soon as a tip has an inch or so standing up I tie the bitch down! Any side branches trying to stand up get tied down too. The fuller you get the screen the more pot you're going to harvest. If you could lower the screen more and gently bend the larger branches over you'd have more budsites exposed at flowering time. As they go through the stretch I tie them down too so when that's over just the end colas are standing up and the height above the screen is pretty even and only about a foot over the screen.

    LED light burn?

    Hi Man, I was wondering how you were doing, Yes I would leave them to fill the net, you have to keep tucking those tops back under the net so the side branches start to grow, Otherwise you will lose lots of bud points. The plant on the right in this last pic needs some of the big fan leaves trimming off really, so light can get down to those budding areas. Also all the leaves under the net can be trimmed. like this pic below. It stops the plant wasting its energy, as well as preventing powdery mildew starting, and it will help grow bigger buds.

    I would veg for another month then flip them in 12/12 plants are looking nice and healthy 👍

    LED light burn?

    Hey man! Long time no see :)) I'm back in search for guidance again. From left to right they're the medium kid, small kid that started catching up and large kid. On the 20th They'll be 3 months old. One of these days I will build them a bigger house. Is it ok if I leave them in veg mode for another 5 or 6 days? They're not even close to equal in size. I am thinking about flowering them one at a time, but your opinion comes first :) Also if you have any extra advice for me..

    Hi jjp009, Don't be shy about asking for help if you want to to confirm something your not sure about.
  20. I thought it would be the other way round, I find adding a bit of high CBD bud too a high THC bud stops any anxiety or negative effects from the THC when I consume it.
  21. Police ‘decriminalising cannabis’ as prosecutions fall away Government figures sent to Norman Lamb MP reveal fall of 19% since 2015 in people prosecuted for possession James Tapper Sat 14 Jul 2018 Marijuana plants grow under artificial light Photograph: Robyn Beck/AFP/Getty Images Nearly every police force in England and Wales has reduced its numbers of cautions and prosecutions for cannabis possession. Police forces are in effect decriminalising cannabis, campaigners say, after uncovering figures that show a substantial fall in the number of prosecutions and cautions for possessing the drug. Last year only 15,120 people in England and Wales were prosecuted for possession of cannabis, a fall of 19% since 2015. Police issued cautions to 6,524 people in 2017 – 34% fewer than two years before. The figures from the Ministry of Justice were released in response to a parliamentary question from the Lib Dem MP Norman Lamb, who called for a “regulated cannabis market” to protect public health. “It would confound all expectations if the number of people actually in possession of cannabis is falling, which strongly suggests that police are starting to decriminalise regardless of the government’s stubborn refusal to legalise and regulate the sale of this drug,” he said. The debate on cannabis has reopened since the case of Billy Caldwell, the severely epileptic boy whose mother has been fighting to be allowed to treat his condition at their home in Northern Ireland using cannabis oil. Although the home secretary, Sajid Javid, has announced a review of cannabis for medical use, Downing Street has said the government has no intention of decriminalising the drug. Yet there have been a growing number of calls from senior politicians and police chiefs for Britain to join Canada and US states including California, Massachusetts and Colorado, where cannabis is available for recreational as well as medicinal use. Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, said this month that “criminalising people” was not a good idea, while William Hague, the former Conservative foreign secretary, has said Britain ought to be preparing a lawful, regulated market in cannabis for recreational use. The ministry’s figures show that nearly every police force gave fewer cautions and pursued fewer prosecutions for cannabis possession. Only in Cheshire was there a small rise in prosecutions, of 3%. “The fall in prosecutions and cautions for cannabis possession is a welcome trend and a victory for common sense,” Lamb said. “The ‘war on cannabis’ unfairly stigmatises and criminalises young people who are doing no harm to others, while tying up police resources which should be better used tackling harmful crimes. “However, this issue should not be left to individual police forces. We cannot tolerate a postcode lottery where cannabis users may or may not be prosecuted depending on where they live. The government must bring forward proposals for a regulated cannabis market in the interests of public health, with strict controls on price and potency, and give parliament a free vote.” The Lib Dems have campaigned for legalisation since 2017, while the Green party, the SNP and Plaid Cymru favour decriminalisation. Around 2.8 million people aged 16 to 59 took a drug last year, according to the Crime Survey of England and Wales, and more than one-third of adults have taken illegal drugs at some point. The total number of arrests made for drug possession was 108,098 for the year ending June 2017, according to the latest available figures for police recorded crime, which is 36% down on 2006-07 and 10% less than the previous year. Instead of offering a caution or prosecuting offenders, police have other options to sanction those in possession of drugs. They can give an official “cannabis warning”, which places a record of the incident on the police national computer, and a penalty notice for disorder, which is similar to a parking ticket. But uses of both have fallen dramatically over the past decade. Police issued 139,666 notices in 2007, but only 18,211 last year. Similarly, the number of cannabis and khat warnings has dropped from 107,241 at their peak in 2009 to 33,514 in 2017. theguardian
  22. Stoners often indulge in the act of wake and bake. Cannabis gives the euphoric feeling along with the psychoactive effects. Cannabis recreational users who consume cannabis occasionally don’t have to worry much about the dosage of cannabis. But, the people who are dependent on cannabis for the whole day need to worry. As a medical cannabis user, there may be several questions pondering your mind, like, “How much cannabis should I take, and at what time.” Here, we have highlighted some points for the people who need to consume cannabis throughout the day. Edibles: If you don’t like to smoke you will probably be wondering, “Can I switch to edibles?” But remember, it is not a good option to introduce yourself to cannabis. Edibles are much stronger and have a long-lasting effect than vaporizers. Even an experienced cannabis user should consume micro-dose of the edible. Moreover, the best way to have edibles is to take it slowly and choose edibles having low amounts of THC, say 5mg or less every 1-2 hours and immediately stop when you don’t feel much pain. Edibles having a massive amount of THC are advisable to a cancer patient, but you should consult your doctor before ingesting even a single dose. CBD-Rich Products: Cannabinoids found in the marijuana imitates the endocannabinoids which are made by the body. CBD-rich products act as a buffer which modulates THC effects. The reason behind this phenomenon is that CBD is a negative modulator of CB1 receptors. However, this fact is still under consideration as human trials have shown different results. For instance, CBD may help the effect of THC to last longer, and vice-versa or may not have any significant effect. On the other hand, Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is another cannabinoid that is a negative modulator and has a high affinity to CB2 receptors. Don’t Operate Cars or Machinery: Cannabis affects the reaction time and the motor control, therefore, you should not operate cars or any other bulky types of machinery while consuming cannabis. Cannabis and the Workplace: No workplace entertains the use of cannabis, and you cannot risk your job. So, it is better to refrain yourself from using cannabis at the workplace. You can perhaps use it before or after your work. How to Prevent a Bad Experience? Using the products which have less amount of CBD can help in overcoming the adverse effects of THC. Chewing black peppercorns, which contains the terpenoid beta-caryophyllene can relieve you from adverse effects; it interacts with cannabinoids, calms and keeps you hydrated.

    I found a great spot to download FREE POT BOOKS. I downloaded a grow bible first and got lots more. Books look great and complete like the real ones I have here. No web site but just a page of links. Just right click on what you want and then "Save Link As" to download so they don't open first as some are 50+ megs. They got lots. Enjoy.
