Ten Reasons OMMP Patients Should Support Measure 91

By Dr. Richard Bayer, Co-Chief Petitioner of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act OMMP Stays the Same. Measure 91 doesn’t impact the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program. Measure 91 explicitly states that the rights of OMMP cardholders won’t be impacted. Research. This law allows state money to be used for research on the benefits and appropriate uses of marijuana. Keeping marijuana illegal has prevented much-needed medical research and clinical trials. Money has already been appropriated for that in Colorado. Privacy.

Raskal OG Marijuana Strain Review And Pictures

Raskal OG Cannabis Strain Review And Pics The Raskal OG marijuana strain is one of my favorites to smoke because while it’s dense, it burns thoroughly. I take a lot of waterfall hits, and having a consistency like that is important so that the nugs don’t burn too fast or slow. The Raskal OG marijuana strain is a cross between Fire Kush and San Fernando Valley OG Kush, and was originally bred by Cali Connection. The THC levels for Raskal OG is roughly 17%. The nugs are light green, and the smell [...]

When it comes to opposing marijuana reform, it seems that the Oregon Sheriff’s Association always leads the way. Oregon Measure 91 is on the ballot, which will legalize marijuana if passed, and we will find out what voters truly think of it early next week on Election Day 2014. Almost all of the money donated to the ‘No on 91′ campaign has come from the Oregon Sheriff’s Association.

How Many Joints Are In An Ounce Of Marijuana?

I’ve been asked more and more lately by members of the media ‘how many joints are in an ounce of marijuana?’ Using the ‘joint measurement’ is very popular for journalists who are trying to quantify how much marijuana is in an ounce to their readers who likely don’t consume marijuana.

Asking ‘how many joints are in an ounce of marijuana’ is similar to asking ‘how many [...]

A lack of manganese will show up in young leaves as they start to turn yellow and exhibit small, brownish necrotic areas in the middle of the leaf. The veins of the leaf will generally remain green. The outline of the leaf will become dark green. A surplus of manganese will produce an iron deficiency. Manganese does not move across the marijuana plant, making it immobile. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about [...]

Black Cherry Soda Marijuana Strain Review And Pictures

Black Cherry Soda Cannabis Strain Review And Pics The Black Cherry Soda marijuana strain was created by TGA Genetics. The Black Cherry Soda marijuana strain is an indica-dominant hybrid strain, and has one of my favorite strain names of all time. It’s a very dark strain, so the name is fitting. Like most indica-dominant strains, the Black Cherry Soda marijuana strain creates an intense body high, but not so overwhelming that you can’t get tasks completed. It also comes with a great euphoric feeling. Great for pain, insomnia, and just about [...]
