Laws becoming stricter for Colorado medical marijuana growers, buyers, sellers and patients

According to Denver CBS Channel 4, beginning July 1st, medical marijuana caregivers are required to register with the state and let the authorities know exactly where they are growing the plants.  This means that even those who are growing the marijuana for medical reasons for less than 5 patients will have to let the state authorities know their grow sites and which strands of marijuana they are growing. Now the smaller growers are going through similar regulations as the bigger dispensaries.

Many Colorado marijuana growers have been growing in the area for years—it is important they recognize all of the rules and regulations that have been changed. It’s even important for their patients to understanding what their providers should be doing to abide by the rules. If caregivers, dispensaries or patients fall to abide by the laws in place, it might mean fines or other prosecution set by the Colorado state government.

It is recommended that all Colorado MMJ patients and employees of medical marijuana businesses consult a medical marijuana attorney before they continue to use, grow or sell marijuana after the July 1st laws are set in place. It is vital to make sure their privacy rights as well as their amendment rights are kept even with the new laws being enforced. Those who become aware of their rights are less likely to fall into the trap of being prosecuted as a criminal. If one Colorado marijuana dispensary is caught providing the medical marijuana without a state issued license, anyone involved could be prosecuted.

With the new Colorado medical marijuana laws comes the rise in situations in which medical marijuana employees are being asked to submit an unreasonable amount of personal and financial information.  However, with this increase in giving of information, the state has not necessarily increased the number of licenses handed out. Therefore, employees are giving way too much information, only to work at an unlicensed business—in which they could potentially be caught and persecuted for failing to comply with the strict medical marijuana laws.

It is important to realize what role the state plays in enforcing the laws on medical marijuana selling, buying and usage. Those involved should be up to date with all laws because the Colorado authorities are enforcing them. The medical marijuana buyers, sellers and users in Colorado have to take additional steps to see the legalization of marijuana continue to rise. Unfortunately, as of July 1st, many of the previous rights and conditions for marijuana dispensaries have been taken away.

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…

Best Lights for Indoor Marijuana Growing

What are the Best Light Bulbs to use to Grow Indoor Marijuana Plants Because of the light energy photosynthesizing requires, lights are the single most important element when growing indoor weed plants. Unfortunately normal light bulbs you find at the supermarket make terrible grow lights, because this type of household light bulb, also refereed to as incandescent bulbs, don't emit light in the spectrum that is required to properly grow cannabis plants indoors,

Similarly, most other types of lights, including mercury vapor lamps and halogen bulbs, are unqualified for growing indoor marijuana. If you're looking for (the best) bulbs to buy for growing marijuana indoors, three lighting types fit the suit:
