See No Evil * Smell No Evil * There Will Be No Evil

Not A Closed Locked Grow

This is an example of what “NOT” to do.

See No Evil…Don’t Draw Attention

 An enclosed locked facility,just what is the definition?

Can a person climb over the fence to your grow?

 Can the plants be seen with the unaided eye?

 If you need binoculars your OK,but still not secure-loose lips sink ships or medical marijuana grows in this case.When you grow outside it attracts attention…DON’T GROW OUTSIDE!

Violation-CLOSED LOCKED FACILITY

An Adrian man gave up an 18-month legal battle over a backyard marijuana grow (pictured above) and pleaded guilty to a reduced criminal charge.Felony marijuana manufacture and firearms charges were dismissed after Robert Michael McFarland pleaded guilty in Lenawee County Circuit Court to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge.He would not be here had he grown inside.

Another Attention Grabber...DON'T DO THIS!

Another Attention Grabber…DON’T DO THIS!

I Pledge Allegence To The Flag

One couple put a Marijuana Leaf Flag on their flag pole,guess who came a “knockin”…….. Johnny Law and it cost them thousands of dollars in legal fees-DON’T Do This!! Wearing t-shirts & hats (depicting marijuana) or smelling of marijuana in public places will also get eyes on you.

Smell No Evil

If your growing a strong smelling strain outside it”WILL ATTRACT”  The Attention of your mail carriers,meter readers(our readership knows not to accept a smart meter from DTE Energy),neighbors-just about anyone that has access to your property.

This could trigger a visit from the police,or the person or persons(who now know about your grow)could come back-with bad intentions-It’s not worth your life,you are better off keeping your grow hidden inside,lips zipped.

Quick Tip - A good ozone generator will eliminate the smell of an inside grow(they also make them for your exhaust ducting).

You Don’t Know Me From Adam

I watched a young man,very cocky about his grow,showing everyone in the dispensary waiting room his “TREES” with full descriptions on strains and sizes of plants to 20+ strangers.He didn’t know one of us!Don’t Do That!

Safety First…Safeguard Your Family

Please – for your own safety don’t talk about your grow to strangers,we are all proud of our grows once we get it all right but you risk EVERYTHING talking to potential undercover law enforcement – trolling for “fish in a dispensary”.

Unless….Like the insurance commercial…….

YOUR MADE OF $ MONEY $

BEST Advise…… conduct yourselves like what your doing IS illegal,period.Do not put anything in your trash at the curb,including any little thing that is commonly used for marijuana growing.Garbage pulls are the number 1 way law enforcement gets that warrant – Do Yourself a favor…Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid!

Recycle The Plastic..Use It Twice

What’s the answer?-Save all your shopping bags.Take those little plastic bags and put all materials that could be an issue,(be anal,grow rocks and roots will be enough to get eyes watching you) fill them,tie the handles and put them in a”secured”(BLACK) garbage bag & can,tied & locked with zero access to prying eyes.

When you go to your doctors appointment,fill a (BLACK ONLY) garbage bag with these little(search warrant repelling)bags and lock them in the trunk of your vehicle.Walk away,come back and smell,does it?.If so,correct the problem with Ona Spray,easily found on Ebay.Spray inside the bag,tie and spray the trunk.

Stop by the nearest car wash-Throw out a couple little bags while cleaning your cars interior-Stop to eat at Mickey D’s-throw out a bag(in the parking lot trash).You get the idea?No trail back to your medical grow! Approximately 94 percent of marijuana warrants are derived from a garbage pull.

Bill Schuette & Rick Jones

“The New Beavis & Butthead”

Breakin the Law..Breakin The Law

We have law enforcement in this state that will never play by the rules when our attorney general & senators condone this type of behavior.It’s your money to loose,you pay regardless of being found not guilty,yet the state is playing with taxpayer money.

An Analogy

If your spending “free money” at the casino,when you loose,it hurts much less.

When YOU pay-from your hard earned savings or worse,mortgage the house to defend yourselves…well you see the clear losers are patient/defendants.DON’T BE A DEFENDANT!…This Medication..To Date…Is still a schedule 1 narcotic in the FEDS eyes.

God Bless & Stay Safe ~wounded warrior~

U.S. Government Finally Approves Medical Marijuana Research

 

Under existing federal rules, studies on the effects of marijuana can use pot only from this government-run farm in Mississippi. Researchers say that the agency that oversees the farm, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, has long been hostile to proposals aimed at examining possible benefits of the drug. (Kevin Bain / University of Mississippi / August 19, 2008).

Under existing federal rules, studies on the effects of marijuana can use pot only from this government-run farm in Mississippi. Researchers say that the agency that oversees the farm, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, has long been hostile to proposals aimed at examining possible benefits of the drug. (Kevin Bain / University of Mississippi / August 19, 2008).

The Obama administration handed backers of medical marijuana a significant victory Friday, opening the way for a University of Arizona researcher to examine whether pot can help veterans cope with post-traumatic stress, a move that could lead to broader studies into potential benefits of the drug.

For years, scientists who have wanted to study how marijuana might be used to treat illness say they have been stymied by resistance from federal drug officials.

The Arizona study had long ago been sanctioned by the Food and Drug Administration, but under federal rules, such experiments can use marijuana only from a single, government-run farm in Mississippi.

Researchers say the agency that oversees the farm, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, has long been hostile to proposals aimed at examining possible benefits of the drug.

Government officials said the approval did not represent a change in underlying policy — just a recognition that Sisley’s proposal meets official standards for research using illegal drugs.

The research still requires approval of one more agency, the Drug Enforcement Administration, but Sisley and Doblin expressed confidence of it’s approval.

Researchers, marijuana advocates and some members of Congress have accused the National Institute on Drug Abuse of hoarding the nation’s only sanctioned research pot for studies aimed at highlighting the drug’s ill effects.

They had pointed to Sisley’s experience as a prime example of what they called an irrational and disjointed federal policy.”You have impossible burdens,” said Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), who has enlisted other members of Congress to lobby the administration to give researchers more access to the drug.

Scientists say more research could help determine more precisely which ailments the drug can treat and could eventually lead to regulation by the FDA as a prescription drug.

That would allow patients to know what they are consuming. Currently, users of medical marijuana often have little information about the potency and purity of the pot they buy.

Physicians who prescribe the drug do so on the basis of evidence that is largely anecdotal.Federal law currently classifies pot as more dangerous than cocaine and methamphetamine.

As a “Schedule 1″ drug, marijuana is designated as having “no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse,” as well as being a drug that puts users at risk of “severe psychological or physical dependence.”

 Researchers say that classification needs to change for science to proceed uninhibited. Making the change, though, would be a retreat in the war on drugs.

The Obama administration could reschedule the drug without congressional action, but has shown no inclination to wade into that fight.

In the last 10 years, the government had approved just one U.S. research center to conduct clinical trials involving marijuana use for medical purposes — a UC San Diego facility created by the California Legislature.

The scientist who runs that center, Igor Grant, said his success in getting Washington’s sign-off was due in large part to something other scientists do not have: the full force of the state.

Blocking his work would have been a direct affront to lawmakers in Sacramento, he noted.

His studies looked at such questions as whether pot could help ease the nausea and vomiting associated with cancer treatment or the severe appetite suppression experienced by those with HIV, which causes AIDS.

Grant said,”There is very good evidence cannabis is helpful,every one of those studies showed,in the short term,a beneficial effect”.

Public Hearing On Key Medical Marijuana Bills HB 4271 and HB 5104

Two key medical marijuana bills to be heard Tuesday

Two key medical marijuana bills to be heard Tuesday

The Senate Government Operations Committee, chaired by Sen. Randy Richardville, has announced it will conduct a hearing on two critical medical marijuana bills early next week.

The committee will hear testimony on HB 4271 and HB 5104 on Tuesday at 1 p.m. 

What: Public hearing on HB 4271 and HB 5104

Where: Rooms 402 and 403, Capitol Building, 100 S. Capitol Avenue, Lansing

When: Tuesday, March 11, at 1 p.m. 

 

HB 4271 would allow local governments to license and regulate medical marijuana provisioning centers (dispensaries). HB 5104 would extend the protections currently in place for smoked forms of marijuana to marijuana extracts, a key ingredient in non-smoked forms of the medicine.

Both bills are essential to providing safe and reliable access to medicine by thousands of patients in Michigan. Both bills passed the House of Representatives with landslide votes late last year. Special thanks to all who reached out to Sen. Richardville’s office and asked that he move forward with these bills.

If you attend, please be respectful to committee members and be sure to dress appropriately. Also keep in mind that time is often short at these hearings, particularly since there may be other items on the agenda.

Bad Medical Bill Progresses in Michigan

In Michigan on Tuesday, Sen. Rick Jones’s SB 783 passed the Senate with a vote of 31 to 7. This bill — which is now pending in the House Judiciary Committee — would allow landlords to prohibit medical marijuana cultivation and smoking in the privacy of one’s residence.

Meanwhile, more sensible bills including HB 4271 and HB 5104, which protect patient access, currently languish in committee.

This bill would allow landlords to prohibit marijuana cultivation as well as smoking — but not vaporizing — when a lease specifically limits these activities.

Those who violate a lease would be subject to sanctions, taking patient rights backwards to the days before the current law was passed in 2008.

This bill would limit these rights without addressing fundamental problem in Michigan’s law — the lack of safe and regular access through state-legal provisioning centers and protections for non-smoked forms of the medicine.

2014 – A Year Of Change

Will this Be The Year Marijuana Rescheduled ?

As more people are educated about marijuana-

Will this Be The Year Of Marijuana Rescheduling ?

New Year’s Day is a shining moment for those who’ve shouted Free the Weed in Colorado. And many Michiganders are voicing similarly upbeat sentiments about broadening the access to recreational as well as medical marijuana.

Colorado kicks off legal sales of recreational marijuana today at state-licensed stores. Meanwhile, cannabis bills are awaiting action in the Michigan Legislature.

Two bills passed the Michigan State House in 2013 and are to go before the Senate this year.

One would let local communities decide whether to allow marijuana stores; the other would legalize so-called medibles, the edible forms of medical marijuana such as foods and candies that many patients favor.

LansingLANSING,MI — The state Legislature has plenty of thorny issues  to sort out before the end of the year.

Among other things lawmakers are likely to take up before adjourning for the holidays Dec. 12.

Three bills regarding medicinal cannabis are up for debate. They would:

■ Allow local communities to license medical marijuana provisioning centers to cultivate or sell medical marijuana to eligible citizens.

■ Allow marijuana-infused products, such as brownies or creams, to be used by people who have medical marijuana certificates.

■ Allow the sale of medical marijuana at pharmacies.
