Why You Shouldn't Wait for Cannabis to Be Legal Before You Start Growing It (And How Not to Get Caught)
This is probably the biggest hurdle for people to get over – where do I get seeds? Can I simply order them online? Wouldn’t they track me? In this case, I’d recommend finding someone to help you get seeds….even if you only have access to “bag seed”, you should grow it. If you properly grow a cannabis plant, you can increase its potency. I have taken some of the shittiest bag seeds on the planet and with enough care and attention, got a very decent smoke. I’m talking about cropping out average 8-10% on weed that was arguably a potent “hemp”.

You Don't End the War on Drugs by Legalizing Cannabis, You End it by Nullifying the CSA
Why is this an important distinction to make? Simply put, if we can say that legalizing cannabis is ending the war on drugs, then we’re simply lying to ourselves. Cocaine would still be illegal, so would heroin, LSD, Mescaline, you name it – whatever pharma isn’t peddling would be illegal. This would still create a large black market that would still require law enforcement to “combat it” in….wait for it…you guessed it….THE WAR ON DRUGS!

Red, White, and Green – Why COVID-19 was the Best Thing to Ever Happen to the Marijuana Legalization Movement
The most important thing COVID-19 did for marijuana legalization was replace the current conservative, Republican president with a Democrat.  Not that Joe Biden is weed’s best friend, but if Trump won re-election there would be close to 0% chance of Federal marijuana policy change until 2024 at the earliest. This is the same president Trump who picked anti-pot Attorney General Jeff Sessions and thinks marijuana makes people dumb.  There is a strong case to be made that if COVID-19 doesn’t hit, Trump is an easy re-election winner in 2020.  The stock market was soaring to 30,000 or move under his watch and unemployment was hovering under 2% in America.  Love him or hate him, people vote with their pocketbook and ask themselves, “Am I better off or worse off than I was 4 years ago?”.  People love to see their IRA and pension fund balances going up, and with the Dow at 30,000 and unemployment at under 2%, does the idea of a “tax and spend Democrat” sound like a good choice?  If COVID-19 doesn’t hit, the odds at Trump getting re-elected are pretty good, and that would not have been good for cannabis.

Cannabinoids present in cannabis can play a huge role in controlling psoriasis. The endocannabinoid system plays a huge role in the life span of skin cells and their duration of maturation.

CBD and THC are anti-psoriatic agents that help to reduce inflammation and immature expression of skin cells. This coupled with the immunosuppressive effects of cannabis makes it a very reasonable alternative for dealing with psoriasis. However, the elephant in the room is whether cannabis is a better means in comparison with the common anti-psoriatic agents.
