Its too easy to mislead the dumb American public in many cases, that is why I’ve said for years we need professional jurors..all it takes is one out of 12 to waste thousands of man hours, hundreds of thousands of dollars on a trial is one dumb hayseed that hears a ” hey, cops have a tough job..the suspect turned and had a shiny metallic object. Could have been mistaken for a weapon”. That nonsense would never play with professional jurors. This case is open n closed guilty as hell of murder, not manslaughter.
I’m not Tim, nor am I attempting to fight with other marijuana groups, lawyers or ballot initiatives here.
We’re nearly a decade into MMMA now and I believe it’s simply time to take a sobering honest look at where we have been and where we are going. The fact that we have seen a 17% increase in marijuana possession arrests since MMMA and there is no stop to the raids/asset forfeiture in site is problematic is it not?
Maybe it’s time to concentrate on and attempt to solve this criminal problem facing patients and caregivers (aka MMMA) rather than forwarding leading business models (aka time to think outside of the box). If some will be insulted by my work here, let it be. Profit nor marketing myself have ever been my goal, this is solely about the unrepresented patients and caregivers constantly facing our criminal justice system.
That said, I have no intention of shunning NORML attorneys or to stop working with or supporting them. Let’s be clear, when I write about/criticize our criminal justice system I must include ALL officers of the court and their special interests to maintain integrity. NORML/defense attorneys are unquestionably officers of the court and in turn part of the problem …
Feel free to question my hypothesis here, but not my character brother. I’m not simply throwing around pithy undeveloped statements here am I? I am not a lawyer or LEO, but rather a social scientist with a clear obsession in “conflict of interest”. Fault me for that, but please do no marginalize me or my cause as petty or partisan …
I know both phases play an important role in achieving a great harvest, but which do you guys think is MORE important?
This question came up after watching one of @Growmau5 videos when he mentioned something about flowering was the time when your hard work has paid off and you get to see it grow. I’m not sure if he’s inferring that the flowering phase is less difficult than the vegging phase or if he was including the setup of the grow (cleaning pots, making lights, etc.)
From my understanding vegging is the process in which the plant puts on foliage, roots, etc and provides a backbone for a successful flowering. However, could you have a messed up plant during 2 weeks of veg and make a comeback with a great flowering regime?
Here’s something I found interesting, from this article. It appears that weed can flower under surprisingly long days. The flowering phases were identical with 12/12 and the natural outdoor day lengths which varied from more than 14 to less than 12. This may explain why people have flowered with 14 hour days while using end of day far red treatments. I couldn’t find any evidence that such treatments are capable of reducing the number of dark hours required for short day plants to flower, though it was useful for increasing stem length.
It’s probably possible to flower with 14 hour days even without any far red treatments and the length of time to maturity may not be that much different from 12/12. Can’t really tell from this table because at the end the days are less than 12 hours anyway, but I think it’s possible. At least they started flowering and kept flowering at the same rate as 12 hours in the early phases, which is unexpected. Since the table shows that florets formed with 14.16 hours, they must have started being induced a week earlier with 14.4 hours. That particular strain, G5, was a high CBD strain, but it may be similar for THC ones.
