Illinois Medical Marijuana Bill Falls Four Votes Short of Passage

Originally reported by Hannah Hess

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. :: Authorization, or decriminalization, of marijuana use for medicinal purposes was shot down by a slim margin Thursday by the Illinois House.  Falling only four votes from passage, the long anticipated legalization of medical marijuana in Illinois was rejected.  Supporters of Illinois medical marijuana, though disappointed are already preparing for the next battle.

Passage of the bill would have followed the trend of State governments decriminalizing the use of marijuana for medicinal use in order to alleviate individuals suffering from chronic   pain or nausea caused by certain debilitating conditions.  Instead, the Illinois House on Thursday created additional roadblocks to progress in addressing the emerging and legitimate business of medical marijuana.

Many "would be" Illinois medical marijuana patients are left with disappointment and the undesirable choice of either remaining in pain or being labeled a criminal.  However moral among medical marijuana supporters remains strong!  Advocates of the decriminalization of medical marijuana in Illinois are already planning pro marijuana campaigns for next year, and the year after next, until marijuana in Illinois is permitted for medicinal uses.

Where to Buy Recreational Marijuana | Colorado Retail Dispensaries

Colorado Recreational Marijuana Dispensaries As of January 1st, 2014, the sale of recreational marijuana to anyone 21 and above is legal in Colorado.  Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, a handful of medical marijuana (MMJ) dispensaries now sell recreational pot to Colorado residents that don't have a MMJ license (AKA Red Card).

 Even though it's legal under state law to buy recreational marijuana in Colorado without a MMJ card, a number of cities have voted to ban the sale of recreational marijuana. Below is a list of Colorado cities that have bans on recreational marijuana dispensaries.

What's The Difference Between F1, F2, and F3 Weed Strain Seeds?

Just as with common flowers or other household plants (roses, pea plants, etc...), Cannabis seed strains can be grown and crossbred. This is usually done for the purpose of developing new breeds with different characteristics such as the size of the plant, yield, taste, effect, bud to leaf ratio, or other specific traits that the grower desires. As this cross breeding continues, the plants end up forming different weed strain seeds, or generations. These are often described as being either F1, F2, or F3. In order to really make some informed seed purchase decisions it is very helpful to understand the differences between these various seed strains.




F1 Seeds: The First Breeding: An F1 seed variety is created by breeding together two pure strains. For example, a tall plant (represented with two dominant genes, AA) is bred with a small plant (represented by the two small recessive genes, aa). Since the resulting plants will each receive one gene from each parent, this will result in offs…

Dragon Chewer Marijuana Stash Jar | Cannabis Grinder Container Review

Dragon Chewer Marijuana Grinder Jar / Container Review While stopping by the +The Herbal Center, a Denver Dispensary on Broadway I came aross this MMJ innovation in the blossoming Colorado cannabis industry.  After requesting an eighth of White Shark medical marijuana, a caregiver onsite at the time handed me my cannabis in a Dragon Chewer medical marijuana grinder jar.  At first site the Dragon Chewer bud grinder container appears no different than the standard, plastic squeeze top cannabis jars used by most medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado.  

Closer examination of the bud grinder jar reveals that the Dragon Chewer cannabis container is in fact much more than a simple plastic, squeez-top medical marijuana jar.  In fact, with the introduction of the Dragon Chewer medical marijuana grind container, the days of paying $40+ for a quality stash jar are over.    


As you can see in the pictures, the side of the pop top that faces the inside the Dragon Chewer stash jar has jagged tee…
