Missed all of the 4/20 news (for all the right reasons)? Fret not

Missed all of the 4/20 news (for all the right reasons)? Fret not. We’ve pulled out some green gems from amongst the festivities to entice, intrigue, and educate you on this glorious Monday.

Today’s quote is from a Founding Father who doesn’t often get the attention he perhaps deserves. Look him up – he had some pretty forward-thinking views on key issues.

“We shall, by and by, want a world of hemp more for our own consumption.” John Adams

No Place Like Home

Depending on where you are in the world, setting up a home grow might be a viable option. But if you don’t want it to take up a lot of floor space – and you aren’t really sure where to start – this guide is a great place to get you up and running.

Sky High

So it transpires that everyone’s favorite Canadian astronaut, Chris Hadfield, is a board member for medicinal cannabis business, BioHarvest Science. And while he admits the idea of getting high(er) in space is ill-advised right now, by his own admission “space might even be the perfect environment to produce out-of-this-world, medical-grade cannabinoids”.

New New Jersey

The Garden State has now joined 17 others to be a part of the drive toward recreational cannabis being legal across the USA. As with all legalization, caveats are in place, for instance, the only weed that can be sold in New Jersey is weed grown in New Jersey. At least it supports local, right?

Swiss Cheese

Serious progress in the land of neutrality this past week. An amendment to Switzerland’s Federal Narcotics Act means that a trial of 5000 current cannabis consumers will now run for 2.5 years – allowing those same people to purchase marijuana from authorized pharmacies.

Pour On The Coal

Montana and coal are almost inextricably linked, and in recent years many communities built around mines have feared for their futures. But cannabis in Montana now outstrips coal for jobs created and tax revenue generated – so maybe there’s a pivot point for those same communities?

Bakedspeare

Big Bill, The Bard of Avon, was a blazer? Well, unsurprisingly, it’s a hotly debated topic with pretty circumstantial evidence… but it’s an interesting idea. If it could be proved it might throw new light on the creative powers bestowed on those who enjoy ganja.
