A better procedure was found to be a
two-step sequence Dalzell, and G I just harvested 3 HUGE Shiskeberries grown outdoors (ask sly about them). Had 3 sizes but all eventually put
out approx. the same amount of finished product. The biggest one had the highest leaf-calyx ratio while the
smallest one's ratio was reversed and the 3 made up 1.9 lbs. total of dry, manicured bud with the smallest one
(still 5.5' tall) having the biggest colas (2 14-18" beer can size colas from a once pinched plant) and the
biggest (just under 11'tall w/o pinching) having a large assortment of "branch buds" along with a nice main
cola...and of course the middle one fell in between (also unpinched). Good buzz and taste but there's better
out there imho. Too much waste overall in my experience with it compared to other strains and lots of
trim-work to make them look nice. But it is a pretty plant that's fun to watch grow and minimal care. I did a few
last winter indoors (finished outdoors) that never got to the size/quantity/quality of the outdoor grow...also
only got 1 f out of 5 with the indoor and 3 f's out of 5 with the outdoor grow (if that makes any difference) but
all 10 did germinate in just the simple "finger poke in the soil" method. Btw, I purchased mine last winter from
HBC in person." -m.g. ly in
very small quantities. Over a third of those who had sold (36 percent) reported that they
most commonly sold in ounces, and about 5 percent said that selling in quantities of a
pound or more was usual. The typical seller sold a median of eight times in an average
quantity of two ounces.
However, far more important than the mere incidence of selling —since our sample is
not "representative"—is the systematic variation in selling according to certain key
variables. The most important variable influencing whether the smoker sold or not is how
much he uses: the more one smokes, the greater is the likelihood that he sold. Among our
respondents, the relationship between these two variables could hardly have been more
striking (see Table 10-1).

The logistics of continued heavy use implies, and even demands, selling. The heavy
marijuana user invariably keeps a supply, and many only occasional smokers do as well.
The more that one smokes, the greater is the likelihood that one will have a supply. Not
one of the twenty-six daily smokers said that they did not have a supply of marijuana (see

It is characteristically the case that even heavy marijuana smokers will not be able to
use up, within a brief space of time, the quantities that they purchase. Often a sale will be
on a basis of "take it or leave it." An available quantity might be an ounce, in which case
none of it will be sold, or a pound, or a kilogram, in which case most of it will be sold.

The only way the marijuana user can limit his transactions and his exposure to arrest is to
purchase large amounts. By buying a pound at the near-wholesale price of $120, and
selling twelve ounces to twelve friends at ten dollars for each ounce, one thereby has four
ounces free. "Free grass" is an inducement for selling.
On the surface, the parallel with the heroin addict might seem striking: each sells to
support the habit, getting nothing else out of it. Yet, even if the marijuana seller smokes
five joints a day, an enormous quantity, he would consume a pound every six months,
which means that his habit costs about fifty cents a day, at the most. We are forced,
therefore, to discard the "support the habit" expl e to
remove the legal sanctions against cannabis without violating the conditions of the treaty.
Article 36 of the Convention states that the signing nations shall devise sanctions for the
possession and sale of cannabis "subject to its constitutional limitations," and that "the
offense to which it refers shall be defined, prosecuted, and punished in conformity with
the domestic law of a Party." In other words, a signing nation may decide, after signing,
that the stipulations of the treaty violate its internal laws, and may nullify those portions
which do so. Certain states of India, for instance, have retained the legalization of many
cannabis products, deeming a prohibition in violation of local custom and law. In addition,
the Single Convention only refers to the pressed resin preparations of the cannabis

plant—that is, hashish—and not the leaf substances. The substance customarily used in
the United States is not covered by the restriction. Thus, in most cases, the Single
Convention would simply be irrelevant.52
* It is no contradiction to say that marijuana users are more likely to drink, or to have
drunk alcohol, than nonusers are, and drinkers typically cut down on their alcohol
consumption when they begin to smoke marijuana regularly, in fact, both statements are
true empirically. (back)

huge ""Heads on Sticks"" that dried at over 1 oz. each! there were 5 of them on one lady in a 5 gal pot, she
took about 76 days, but was worth every day. The other type grows very Indica-like, there was one special lady
like this type, that was very fruity with a nice trippy high that gave way to a indica high after the first hour and
the indica-dom. takes about 60 days to flower, also very well worth the wait, several connoisseurs said that it
was amongst the best Indica they had ever smoked, and the taste cured is fantastic. And the strain is very
easy to take care of. It was really nice, and it yields great in both forms. Out of 7-8 different strains grown
Romberry and Jack Flash are definite repeats, as they are both in the Veg closet again. There's really only one
place to get Sensi stock (IMO) but the price is OK considering they give ya 16 beans, in that respect there only

“Afoaf has grown and continues to grow Jack Flash, its a great strain, although variable, IMO the variations are
unique and all are quality in there own way. Here's the way the first grow went, 3 ladies were in pots of BCGA's
Super Soil recipe, there were 3 different ladies, one was in a 5 gal pot she was a haze dominated phenotype,
she grew out in a ""heads on stick"" fashion, big huge heads, she was toped once at the 6 node, she grew into 6
big heads, each dried to 20-35 grams she yielded just over 5 oz's, of great tasting wake and bake, uplifting
sativa smoke. Another lady was sort of the runt, she was in a 3 gal pot also pinched at the 6th node, she had
more of a indica phenotype, nice tight colas with red pistils, great smoke very fruity, but yield was bad, at
about 20 grams. The 3rd lady was awesome, also in a 3 gal pot, pinched at the 6th node, she grew the
densest nugs, smelled like lemon, tasted like lemon/hash, and the high was awesome, trippy and thought
provoking, but its best attribute was its wonderful taste, she yielded about 1.5 oz. All said I really like this
strain. The haze influenced lady was crossed with a Posi Big Bud in hopes of bring down its size (5.5') and

This was the rebel of the bunch. Difference in growth weren’t that noticeable during veg but this plant
showed its colors during flowering. The others had bud formation up and down the stem while this one grew
chunky buds at every node. This made for a longer manicure but it was worth it since this plant has the best
buzz at this time by a noticeable margin. It’s probably the best weed in the stable right now even while still a

In fact, the conceptual difficulties which plague the advocates of the psychotomimetic
position are even more fundamental than this. The charge is not simply that cannabis
generates psychosis-like states. It is that being high on marijuana is a psychosis-like state.
The very nature of the experience is abnormal, according to many medical observers. For
instance, the Lexington studies'26 assertion that cannabis has psychotomimetic
properties relies on a questionnaire, a battery of questions which purport to measure the
degree to which the subject is suffering a psychosis-like state. Yet, when the items in the
questionnaire are examined, they contain almost nothing that would qualify as a true
clinical psychosis, or anything like it. The general psychotomimetic questions include: "Is
your skin sensitive?" "Are you happy?" "Are colors brighter?" "Time passes slowly." "Are
you having a lot of thoughts?" "Do you feel silly?" "Is your hearing keener?" The
statements specifically related to marijuana (actually THC) include: "My thoughts seem to
come and go." "My appetite is increased." "I notice things around me which I have not

In other words, what is labeled a psychotomimetic experience is nothing more than the
characteristics associated with the marijuana high. The fact that any of these items were
actually used to measure a state labeled a psychosis is nothing more than a display of the
researchers' prejudices, a display of an archaic epistemological ethnocentrism which
rejects any and all experience which does not fit the narrow positivistic mold. This form
of reasoning clearly illustrates the interpenetration of science and ideology—ideology
parading as science. The marijuana experience is, of course, different from "normal."
Marijuana is a psychoactive drug; it influences the mind, influences perceptions. This is,
in fact, precisely one of the main reasons why it has the appeal it has to some. Some
people may like this state, and others may not. But is it madness? How frail are the facts
in the path of the mighty concept!
Thus, the attribution to marijuana of psychotomimetic properties is an ideological and
political act. It involves a definitional process of deciding that certain psychic
manifestations subsequent to smoking marijuana in fact (1) may properly be characterized
as psychotomimetic in nature; (2) are generated by the drug; and (3) are not typical of, or
generated by, substances of which society approves. There is a tacit assumption in
descriptions of adverse reactions to pot that the laws prohibiting this substance are
legitimate, and that one of the reasons why it is outlawed (and should continue to be
outlawed) is that it is capable of producing a psychotic episode. Yet there is a mirror
process at work; not only must we ascribe to marijuana a causal nexus with temporary
psychoses, we must I have tried HGF's Haze. It most certainly is not the real deal. There is a lot of indica bred into it. I'm not sure
if there is any real original Haze in it at all or if they just called it Haze for sales reasons. It grew well, cloned
easily and even had a great pineapple smell. The potency on the other hand was not there at all Sativa/indica
or otherwise. Don't do it. -RedDevil , 343 (1969)

tions (holes) at the bottom. The perforated pot sits on a small
dish (you should be able to buy these at the same time you buy your
pots). When you water your plant some of the water may drain down
through the soil and come out through the perforations and into the
dish. The dish should be emptied if this happens to avoid water spills.
More advanced growers use pots that do not contain
perforations at the bottom. This is because advanced growers never
water or feed their plants too much. If you over-water your plant, these
perforated pots will drain some of the water through to the dish. What
happens is that the water may also leech down some of the nutrients
that you have added to your soil. Over-watering can cost you time,
wasted nutrients and even kill your plant.
Before you use a pot make sure that you clean it thoroughly
before use to get rid of any unwanted chemicals or dust that may have
gathered in the shop or factory.
Pots are very cheap to buy. It is always best that you only use
one pot per plant. If there is a problem with the soil, watering or
nutrients then only one plant will feel the effects.

So at this stage you now have the best soil that you can get
your hands on. You take the seedling and make the transplant. You fill
in the empty areas of the new pot with more soil. You pat down the top
of soil lightly and you apply the stake if needed to support your plant.
You also add a small amount of water to your pot and you place the
pot on the bench under the light. You will leave the light on 24 hours a
day and watch as your plant grows over the weeks from its seedling
cycle to its vegetative state.

might very well give us a more comprehensive one. In asking the marijuana smoker the

effects of the drug on himself, we tap only the subjective vein, a valuable but fragmentary
source. This information should properly complement clinical findings, not contradict
them. Thus, since we have asked for the effect of the drug on the person taking it, we have
largely sidestepped the objective-subjective dilemma which is so often a source of
confusion. We do not ask the smoker to be a scientist, reporting objectively on drug
effects, but to re-create the drug experience itself, to convey the expressive character of
the marijuana high.
One-third of the responses to the open-ended question reported that their senses were
more receptive, more sensitive. We straddle two realms here. Tests can be constructed to
measure the ability of the subject to discern stimuli. But for the subjective impact of sensestimulation,
we have to abandon the laboratory approach, because it does not tell us
anything; we must ask the subject himself. Most responses have this dual character. And
the subjective meaning of phenomena and sense-impressions forms a vast and uncharted
territory, with a logic and integrity of its own—yet one of immense significance.
Why should music be so often singled out as a locus wherein marijuana is said to have
such a pronounced impact? There are, after all, five senses, thousands of sources of sound,
an infinitude of possible changes in thinking, doing things, feeling; why music? There are
at least three explanations:
1. The physiological and psychological explanation. There actually is something
about the effects of marijuana that relates specifically to music, to rhythm,
movement, sound, and pitch.
2. The culture explanation. Marijuana smokers happen to be people who enjoy music
and merely project onto marijuana, which they also enjoy, the positive effects of
any activity toward which they feel positively.
3. The logistical and ecological explanation. It just happens that, given the personnel
and the setting ( in one's living room for the most part ), it is highly likely that
music is one of the activities in which marijuana users will be engaged while high.
There is no doubt that reasons (2) and (3) operate powerfully; the question is, do they
account for all of the variance? Is there any pharmacological thrust at all?
A quarter of a century ago, an objective test of musical talent was done on incarcerated
individuals, experienced with marijuana's effects, who had been administered parahexyl, a
marijuana-like compound.16 The study found that the drug did not increase musical
ability. The typical test result (except for rhythm) was to improve very slightly without the
drug as a practice effect, and then to drop back to the original, pre-practice leve 4
