Modern research into the endocannabinoid system has shown that the marijuana plant can produce a multitude of therapeutic benefits for many chronic medical conditions.
The problem, however, is that the discrimination training is often incomplete or missing all together. As a result, there is no definite way to tell if the dog is alerting to an illegal drug or the tennis bag in the backseat.
Late rains disrupted the early season this year with most of the crops stabilizing by mid-season. Powdery mildew and slow plant growth were problems until mid-season in many cases. Farmers are concerned with market disruption due to the ongoing federal crackdown. Pressure on legal dispensaries has made the connection between grower and non-growing collective members more difficult. Despite all this, the cannabis industry is exploding with scientific innovation.
A study published Nov. 20, 2012 in the Journal of Addiction Research and Theory adds more evidence that cannabis may be a safer substitute for alcohol, illicit substances and pharmaceuticals. The community-based research, which took place at four Canadian dispensaries (three in Vancouver and one in Victoria), saw cannabis patients answer a 44-question anonymous survey to gather data on the self-reported impact of cannabis on the use of other substances.
Global Cannabis News Win a FREE vaporizer! - Legal Marijuana's Biggest Enemy Is Big Pharma - Like most grassroots movements, cannabis legalization has its own bogeymen–nebulous entities backed by kings and queens of industry who are as feared as they are loathed.

There's big money in the Green Rush! With a plant that can create over 50,000 products - food, fuel and medication - an unlimited number of jobs will flourish in this trillion dollar market. The amazing cannabis industry is growing right before our eyes! How to Break Into the Pro Cannabis Industry That’s a big difference between being a fan of cannabis and genuinely supporting the cause, in terms of legalization. Suffice to say, the vast majority of everyday cannabis users fall squarely into the former of the two brackets. They may enjoy the prospect of a more liberal future for cannabis policy in general, but in terms of the active efforts they make to push for new legislation…well, more often than not there are no such efforts to speak of. Which is to an extent understandable, as knowing exactly where to start when it comes to supporting the cause can be difficult. Making your voice heard and standing for what you believe in is never easy, but as far as the situation goes in the United States right now, there is one option that’s being explored by more people than ever before.

Often over-looked as a remedy, this plant is a GIFT to the human race! Ten Medical Marijuana Facts Too Important to Overlook To say that cannabis is a subject of heavy debate across the United States right now would be something of an understatement. Quite simply, it’s one of the biggest and most important talking points in recent history. With no less than eight states having so far overhauled cannabis policy to legalize recreational marijuana, millions are celebrating a significant victory for the cannabis community. But at the same time, an even more critically important topic is that of medical marijuana legalization.

With medical cannabis, things are rather different – the overwhelming majority supporting legalization. Whichever way you look at it, there’s a very big difference between legalizing a product for those looking to get high and improving availability of a tried, tested and incredibly effective treatment for a wide variety of illnesses.

The new strain was from a friend, a respected grower, so he put the clones of a new variety straight into the main clone room for a few days before moving them to the veg-room. That was the last chance to notice the spider mites before they traveled into his healthy, bug-free environment to breed in near-perfect conditions.
