The 420 Games Visit San Francisco

Long gone are the days where stoners ate only Funyuns and melted into their couch. Last week’s successful 420 Games Fun Run and Marijuana Awareness festivities in San Francisco proved just that. Instead of couch-locked smokers with low lung capacity, hundreds of people will be laced up their sneakers and ran around the city in honor of cannabis.

GroSkool 2.0: Feeding When Forcing Flowers

Let's do a roll call:   1894, Indian Hemp Drugs Commission - "The Commission has come to the conclusion that the moderate use of hemp drugs is practically attended by no evil results at all."

GroSkool 2.0: Grow’em Big!

It seems reasonably certain that in our re-legalized future home growing will be allowed.  For reasons never entirely clear, a six-plant-three-in-flower garden is becoming the standard.  Nevada's proposition for a twelve-plant-garden would be much easier to manage.  But, okay, six plants means when I flower them my girls have to be BIG.  Look here: The premise of the home grow is to be able to feed your own head, along with all heads...
