    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

Legalization is Closer Than We Think, Hopefully

Trump is in the same situation as Gov Abbott in Texas. He has stated that he will sign a legalization bill( I can't remember if he said medical or rec) if it hits his desk. The retarded Lt Gov Patrick is the thorn in his side as he controls the Senate, a much more powerful position in actual legislation.

I grew up poor and white. I never got any white privilege to help me. LOL! I had to fight and WORK for everything.
Same here, grew up working class poor! With barely anything...

2020 looks to be very memorable in MORE ways than one. A few States will vote this November and then we have the House looking to vote on the MORE Act this month, September. Legalization is One Day closer my brothers and sisters!

I dont really care much if it's legal or not, I mean it'd be nice I guess if they finally got there heads out of there asses but I'm not counting on them too. Lol. I live in Michigan tho. I'm legal to grow 12 plants for personal either way. That's plenty for me as a personal indoor home grower. The government cant agree on shit most of the time. Lol bunch of idiots.

I'm jumping into this thread having just read up, a political ostrich (head in the fucking sand), and a little buzzed, but the last couple years have made me a believer that we might be on our way in the US towards legalization. It might take a while longer, but the fact that we're over half decriminalized on a state-by-state basis is pretty incredible. There are some states on that list that I never would've expected, too.

I think they should of course legalize it, the narco trafficking will go away and small growers can practice their craft for friends and family.

I was thinking about the numbers recently, I don't sell what I have, but I think commercial growers probably don't have it easy with all the additional expenses and red tape. With all of that the true organized crime continues to thrive since they skip the legal paperwork, taxes, licenses.

Even alcohol policy is dumb in the US. I think more lenient regulations will go far in allowing law enforcement to focus on actual crimes, perhaps allows some educational funding.
Educational funding? LOL. We all saw what happened with the lottery money. Weed tax for school is an awful idea, they will implement the same scheme they did with lottery monies. One of the biggest lies told by states to their citizens was that lottery money would help fund schools...

Edit: let me clarify so there's no confusion..

State officials pushed lottery as being "ok" to the bible belts midwest and inner cities by claiming it would help fund schools. This was important because they had to sell the idea to different types of constituents. Bible belt and midwest said gambling was a sin - but if it funds schools they were ok with it. Inner cities were concerned about gambling addiction and how the poor statistically gambling more than the rich. Inner cities felt it could hit minorities hard and would keep them in poverty [pardon my non pc language, but that's how they talked about it in the 80s and 90s]. But inner city school funding has historically been TRASH and underfunded. This sold it.

How it actually works: let's say you luve in Illinois. The state will take money for schools and assign it an amount in the budget. Let's say your local district is due to receive 3m in state funding, Grants, etc. The lottery was suppose to MATCH that amount. So the school district should get 6m. What actually happens: budget is the law for governments. So if it was budgeted 3m that's all it can get....crazy right?[thank Jimmy Carter for base-line budgeting, ugh!] So what happens is the state, after it gives the district 3m then takes it away - to be replaced by 3m in lottery money. So ultimately the school gets 3m and that's it. What happens to the 3m the state gave via the budget? Hrm.....it goes to the general fund account primarily for roads, infrastructure etc. But what infrastructure? Look at flint Michigan. Those pricks were suppose to be fixing the water issue 10 years before it surfaced with upgrades. Same thing happened with Cincinnati sewers.

Bottom line, always remember that taxation is theft but you have the right to inquire about financial statements and hold these pricks responsible. Sorry for the rant. Love yall
