    Well, growing is my first interest. Followed by music and motorcycles. That's the top three.
  1. I too dislike the renewal process. On the other hand BC requires me to see a doctor every 90 days for a renewal on the most common of blood pressure medications. The wait time is different but if we truly want to be taken seriously as medical cannabis patients, whatever that means to you, you have to follow a process. That is really no different than any other prescription.
  2. I don't understand your reply. I can carry, grow, store and smoke without problem. Licensed by Health Canada. That doesn't sound broken at all. It sounds like a dream come true.
  3. I went through the process last year. When I received my license it was dated effective the day the doctor signed my recommendation so yes you lose out on the processing time. I would not hesitate to apply under the ACMPR. You are correct when you say you have grown for X years without issue. Having a license means absolute freedom to carry, posses and use it like tobacco if you wish. It was quite revolutionary to my experience. In effect, life-changing. When I finally received my license for some reason I received a duplicate so one hangs proudly outside my cabinet and one I can use to carry with me. Fuck man, I can fly on commercial planes in Canada with 120 grams, legally. How cool is that? My only restrictions are I can't sell it or give it away. The medical system will allow far more than the 4 plant limit proposed by the government as it stands now IMHO.
  4. PM
  5. There was a time I followed every light protocol. I was terrified of causing a plant stress and turn it hermaphroditic. Unless it is very strain specific at its light sensitivity, you will be fine. In my experience, they can suffer more insult to the dark cycle than I first thought. I guess you are not using timers but stick to 12/12 when you finally move the start/finish times.
  6. Give it a go. Let me know how your life philosophy turns out.
  7. I will address this to all the Mods, I single out no one. I think,the only people acting like trolls here are the Mods. I haven't called anyone a name or done anything other than continue the discussion. So far multiple excuses have been offered as to why you cannot edit a thread. Reread all posts above, nowhere, absolutely nowhere do I ask for a thread to be deleted. I have heard you can’t do it, or won’t do it, depending on who responds. I don’t care; I don’t want any thread deleted. The common complaint from all the Mods is that you feel abandoned in your role in this forum. I cannot help you with that, and I hope you resolve that soon. In the meantime in order to keep this forum a valuable resource I suggest that dead links be removed. In the spirit of cooperation brought to this exchange by Seabc here is an example of some of the dead links or misdirects in the Links, Guides and Troubleshooting thread in NGP. EDITED OUT BECAUSE THE ANSWER HAS CONSISTENTLY BEEN NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I originally made that post in 2001. I removed it when I thought it was no longer needed. If you have ever looked at it, I make reference to Marc asking me to repost it. I still take that to mean he considered having that sort of information available and timely was important. There are nine dead links out of the first 25 or so. Setting aside all your personal feelings you have to admit that is a pretty shabby average. I also think there are so many sticky posts all over the place they should be amalgamated into a new forum, call it the library, where all these stickys can live together in harmony. I said that very thing over a month ago, before the flogging began.
  8. I am not asking for any posts to be removed. I suggested editing to remove dead links. What good is a link to Geocities, which ceased to exist years ago? Edit it out. So you see, I am not asking for anything at all that is in your quote. I don't think to edit a thread, delete a dead link outside of CC and move on is detrimental. Quote: which detracts from the value of CC Forums as a resource of information What I am suggesting will improve that, not lessen it.
  9. I don't use Foxfarm, but looking at the feeding schedule in your link, all dosages are tsp/gallon.
  10. Seaweed, it appears as long as you and I are talking there really isn’t a pissing contest. Thanks for taking the time to respond. I will ignore the peanut gallery. Let me refresh the collective Mod memory of the board rules: Quote: RESPECT ALL OTHERS. No insults, spam, slander, racism, or any overtly offensive or inappropriate posts. Have civil, proper debates and conversations. Please use proper grammar, spelling, and sentence structure to the best of your ability. Twice you have suggested starting threads. Part of my original complaint was that the forums have sticky posts, full of dead links and no one edits them out. The Links, Guides and Troubleshooting thread which was once a valuable resource is now a jumble of dead links, yet still rests firmly planted on the first page. We might have become like an abandoned building, the structure is good, but all the windows are gone. As long as the “its not my job” attitude prevails, we will continue to fade into obscurity. How can we possibly have a 7 year old post which is obsolete, yet no Mod deletes dead links? When someone says the emperor has no clothes, you see it as trying to control your behaviour in some nefarious way. Which takes longer? To edit an existing post, or reply to me? If you wear a blue or green title, you will need thick skin, that has probably not changed much. You know what they say about heat and kitchens. Welcome to the kitchen.
  11. See now to call someone a dickwad is less than intelligent discourse isn't it? You must be very proud of your power. You are right, you don't have to please me at all. Mission accomplished.
  12. OG, I love righteous indignation. Welcome to the party.
  13. Hey Seaweed, you do sound like you are in a bad mood and that is OK. My intent is to hold your collective feet to the fire. You have a right to be pissed at me. Where have I been? I got good enough at my craft to brush up against the local constabulary on several occasions. The absences were not entirely of my choosing. I am now much more modest in my hobbies. I am a bit confused about the references to lacking guidance. You are not the only mod to express this sentiment. Perhaps there is a vacuum now that did not exist when I was a mod. You have been here for a bit? That made me smile, I am member #31. I am the same age as Marc, you may be a relative youngster to me. I used OC as an example of decorum when you mentioned it. I could take him or leave him. I mention the shoutbox because I have seen it used in a manner that seems malicious, when a PM would do the same thing, without making the mods seem like gossiping hags. I don’t have to read it if it offends me, remembering that everyone can. We formerly used resources outside of CC to be in instant communication without sharing it publicly. I am just suggesting talk involving a mod and a third member not in the conversation should be limited. I have no idea of how to respond to your second last paragraph. As far as ragging on the mods, as I said I am trying to hold your collective feet to the fire. Someone should. Don’t you think? Consider it guidance.
  14. I am glad to have some intelligent response. It would seem a small thing to do as a mod, to make some sort of notification as to the status of the forums. It is an entry under Community off the main page, along with Facebook, Twitter and Myspace. I don’t know what your FB page is and if the forums are down, how would I find it? I did as anyone would do, check the other links under community. I more than understand the time constraints of life and responsibilities. I know, having been a Mod that it takes time and a sense of caring to give your own time to this community. There was a time we had to have a Mod here, visible online 24/7, with Mods from the UK to Hawaii to cover and protect the site from attackers. Now it seems Mods lurk, invisible online but free to air their laundry in the shoutbox. I couldn’t disagree more with you that mods are not here to build the community. I expect to never see a mod publicly sneer at a member for seeking information. Tell Ocnorml to stay the hell out of NGP if he can’t say something nice. It is where stupid questions come to germinate and turn wannabes into growers. I will concede I am not qualified to comment on sanity, but decorum is lacking. As to the time it takes to post about spam, I hit the button on every single post, a Mod had already been notified, yet the posts were still there from hours before.
  15. So far the only response is "Its not my job". You came out of the shoutbox to say that?
