Pot Goes Corporate as Entrepreneurs Seek to Profit From Legalization

'Like hip-hop, health food and snowboarding, marijuana is going corporate.

'Tangerine is a strain we have been talking and raving about on the show for a while now.  This Colorado born strain is a favorite of all of ours.  If not our most favorite strain.  And, that’s saying a lot.  One of the most unique smelling, looking, and high lifting strains that can be found.  The official word on  the cross of this strain is a particularly interesting and deep purple pheno (Paissans Passion) of Cough crossed with Grapefruit.'

ME: Dispensing Marijuana

'The Bangor City Council is right to take a thoughtful approach to locating marijuana dispensaries here. What it can’t do — although many other communities have — is put up impediments and pretend the dispensaries will simply go away.

In November, 59 percent of Maine voters approved a measure to establish medical marijuana dispensaries across the state; 56.5 percent of Bangor votes approved the measure. There can be up to eight such facilities statewide.'

'For decades opponents of marijuana law reform policies have falsely argued that marijuana is a ‘gateway’ to drug abuse — a guilt-by-association charge that implies that because tens of millions of people have used cannabis and a minority of these tens of millions have also tried other drugs that somehow it must have been the pot that triggered the hard drug use.'

The problem is this can lead you to using the wrong methods and techniques for indoor cultivation – everything from how to set up and build a grow room, and what is acceptable for ventilation and lighting, to what is good to feed your plants. So, if you’re looking at starting an indoor grow room, here are a few basic tips and facts about growing plants indoors.'

Juicy Jay’s Super Blunt

MARIJUANAREVIEWS.COM: Juicy Jay’s Super Blunt (EdmNugs)

'Comments: These wraps come individually boxed around a conic tube.  As guaranteed by Juicy, these things are just that.  In fact, the past two I’ve bought have almost been damp.  Be careful when unraveling the wrap from the tube as it may sometimes cling and tear a diagonal into your precious beauty.

These wraps make for nice twisting on the scale of 14 to 34-35+ g’s, depending on the skill of the roller.  I have found mine to burn fairly evenly with no to almost no canoe.  Included in the pics was my last birthday blunt, a nice ‘ol 19′er.  –EdmNugs'

Restrictions on medical marijuana use abound, even as dispensaries sprout up in nearly every neighborhood in Colorado Springs and as the state processes 1,000 applications per day for legal marijuana use.'

KINDREVIEWS.COM: Asteroid OG Kush (The Breck Loft)

'Overall:  I went to two distinct states while on the Asteroid, one of complete somatic state that rose to one of capability (a nice mixed bag).  I also appreciated that I experienced zero paranoia from such a powerful strain.  This is a very potent indica that possesses enough sativa qualities to keep from locking you to the chair.

Strain Review: Purple OG

MARIJUANAREVIEWS.COM: Purple OG From Private Dealer (ipistolwhipblindkids)

'Overall: The most debilitatingly beautiful strain of marijuana I’ve ever smoked.  A .75g bong hit of this stuff is pretty damn close to being as potent as a small bowl of bubble hash.  That being said, a half gram bowl of this or plain OG, topped off with some bubble hash is how I like to put an end to my nights…or days :P   –ipistolwhipblindkids'
