Hip hop artist Riff Raff has his own strain of weed

When the LA Weekly found out that hip hop rapper/cult personality Riff Raff had his own strain of weed, they were pretty pumped and imagined dancing like a manic octopus, telling hilarious stories about how our father fights polar bears, and being blessed with sartorial inspiration.

Marijuana Policy Project puts up pro-pot billboards up near Super Bowl site

Hypocrites who take millions in revenue from alcohol sponsors but still prohibit the use of cannabis among their players, which is much safer substance, run the National Football League. That’s the message pushed by five billboards sponsored by the Marijuana Policy Project that have been erected in New Jersey near the site of the Super Bowl set for this Sunday. “Marijuana is less toxic, less addictive, and less harmful to the body than alcohol,” MPP Director of Communications Mason Tvert said in a press release. “Why would the NFL want to steer its players toward drinking and away from making…

How To Control Powdery Mildew On Your Marijuana Plants

Powdery mildew is caused by a variety of fungi resulting in the appearance of a white or gray powdery growth on leaves.  Those species that attack hops also attack marijuana plants.  Powdery mildew can appear on plants indoors or out. Before the powder forms, small bumps may be noted on the topside of affected leaves. Mildew spores are carried by the wind, air ventilation systems, clothing, pets and just about any living thing that moves about.  Mildew spores will remain dormant until environmental factors offer the optimum conditions for them to come to life.  Humidity levels over 55% and warm temperatures,…
