I've been think about growing some nice vegetables this year. Tomatoes are my favourite and my mouth waters at the thought of them being big juicy and home grown. A man from Yorkshire decided to start growing his own cannabis as he no longer had the finances to buy of the black market. He invested in some hydroponic equipment and started growing 4 plants that just so happened after they grow they were worth up to £14,000.
A mitigating pointed out that he was more successful than he anticipated and he must just have a green thumb. He pleaded guilty to producing a class B drug. The judge gave him a lenient 12 month community order and 120 hours of unpaid work. It was pointed out by the court that he missed going to jail within a "hairs breadth".
I think successful or not 4 plants is 4 plants. You can clearly see that he did not plan to sell the cannabis as I am sure his haul would have been a lot bigger.
This man was jobless, think about the jobs he could have if the cannabis industry was open for business. We have many talented people who know a lot about this healing plant. The court even made a joke and suggested he applied for gardeners question time. How cool would that be?
There will come a day that we are going to need people to grow cannabis for pharmacies and hospitals and the fact we already have people who know how to do it must be a positive thing. Believe me if I could grow my own cannabis I would make it magic.

Many mainstream coaches, therapists and matchmakers don't understand just how beneficial responsible cannabis consumption can be in life or in a relationship, and we provide a safe space without judgment. If smoking a joint or hitting a vape during a coaching session makes you feel more comfortable opening up, go for it! Our Head Coach Molly is a longtime cannabis enthusiast, and it's one of the reasons she and her husband are so compatible. We respect fellow cannabis consumers, and we understand where they're coming from.
In addition to all of its medicinal uses, we’ve experienced how cannabis gives perspective, increases focus, reduces stress and anxiety, and enhances connections with others. We want to help consumers become confident in their relationship with cannabis, because cannabis is a perfect analogy for being genuine and accepting yourself as you are. That’s the true definition of confidence.
It is 4 am, but I have not slept yet. My stomach is rumbling, but I can not eat without throwing up. Sudden electric sensations in my head, known as brain zaps, are irritating. I also have to deal with mild, but persistent headache: it won’t respond to over-the-counter painkillers. Restlessness. Nausea. Shivers. It has been five days I got off Lexapro, the most popular SSRI antidepressant in the United States.
What does it have to do with legal cannabis, one might ask. Well, Lexapro is widely used to treat anxiety disorders, be it generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. In legal states doctors are allowed to recommend patients with anxiety to try CBD (cannabidiol, one of the dozens of cannabinoids, marijuana’s ) tinctures and high-CBD low-THC strains of marijuana.
Reading marijuana-devoted websites can be both educational and frustrating. The frustrating part begins when people who are in charge of attracting more visitors make up silly meaningless listicles, like this one that claims to provide 17 reasons to date a girl who smokes weed. Of course every girl who smokes weed will click on this. And some of them will also forward the link to their boyfriends, so it works.
I need to say that I highly respect the High Times magazine. It is probably the most important media outlet for drug culture of the 20th century. They still do quality journalism, although they have some competition now. But can’t they do better than trying to imitate Buzzfeed?
