Washington & Colorado’s vote to legalize marijuana...but elsewhere in America

Yesterday, I wrote about the results of six statewide marijuana initiatives, including the historic news that Washington and Colorado’s voters made marijuana legal under state law.

But those statewide victories weren’t the only defeats our country’s failed marijuana policies were dealt on Election Day. I have more good news to share.

In Michigan, voters overwhelmingly approved all four citywide measures to stop arresting marijuana users. Grand Rapids voters replaced possible jail time for simple possession of marijuana with a fine. In Detroit and Flint, voters removed local criminal penalties for marijuana possession. In Ypsilanti, marijuana possession will now be the lowest law enforcement priority.

While in Massachusetts voters were legalizing medical marijuana statewide, voters in six state legislative districts representing 45 towns and cities approved Public Policy Questions calling for even broader reform. Two of the measures called for Congress to repeal federal marijuana prohibition and let the states decide, while the other four called for marijuana to be taxed and regulated.

Burlington, Vermont voters also called for an end to marijuana prohibition, with 70% of voters approving a non-binding question that asked whether marijuana should be legal and regulated. 

Turning to medical marijuana, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, a proposal allowing regulated dispensaries received 64% support. Unfortunately, however, every one of the six local California measures to allow dispensaries or overturn restrictions was defeated. The local defeats highlight the need for California to join other medical marijuana states by modernizing its law and setting up clear protections and regulations for dispensaries.

Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard for the 12 local victories. They will lay the foundation for statewide reform. And thank you to everyone who donated to MPP, making it possible for Colorado to have the best marijuana law on the planet.

November 6, 2012 was the beginning of the end of marijuana prohibition. We’ll be counting on your support to make sure that day comes sooner, rather than later

Moral of the Story

Let's GO Colorado!!!

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…
