Will Recreational Michigan Marijuana Be Legalized in 2016?
When I was at the High Times Cannabis Cup in Clio, Michigan, a High Times editor told me Michigan marijuana, concentrates, and growers were just as good if not better than what you find in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and California. This is an especially nice compliment, considering that western states are a lot more marijuana […]
Police Use Asset Forfeiture to Rob Marijuana Growers & Users
We keep warning marijuana growers that marijuana legalization isn’t a get out of jail free card, even when you’re fully complying with all the marijuana rules that apply to you.

Buying soil at a hydroponics store means buying products that include Fox Farm Ocean-Forest, Roots Organic 707, Metro-Mix, or Sanctuary Soils Empire Builder. Buying a soilless […]
Marijuana Grow Room Disasters: Avoid, Handle & Never Give Up
My marijuana grow buddy RMC called me in the middle of the night and I could tell from his voice he’d had a marijuana growing disaster. The air conditioning for his 8,000-watt HID grow room failed for at least 42 hours, and his cannabis plants were toast due to high temperatures. His panic and depression […]
