Ex Cops Are Now Marijuana Entrepreneurs

The Cannabis Industry Draws The Attention of Everyone

If you are reading this, it's is because you probably love marijuana and you may be amazed to read that there are now some ex cops, who are getting involved in the cannabis industry.  Yes, you read right, some retired police officers are now working with marijuana and they are not arresting people for it, but promoting the consumption of this herb.  

According to the Associated Press, there are at least 17 ex law enforcement agents, who are now involved in the medical marijuana industry in Illinois.  While these may not sound as many, there are actually not that many records of who is now working with medical cannabis in Illinois and this means that there may be a few more cops who now approve this plant.  

This is only proof of how some people have entirely changed their views on cannabis and how more people are now in favor of either using cannabis as a medicine or for fun.  A good example is Terrance Gainer, who was a homicide detective in Chicago and even the Illinois State Police director and who is now in favor of cannabis.  

This 68 year old man, says that he was seduced into the marijuana industry, because it is simply good business.  His exact words when interviewed where, "the business people involved in this are very serious about their investments." 

Hopefully, more cops and people start accepting marijuana worldwide and more countries continue to legalize this herb once and for all.  2015 has been an amazing year for marijuana and we are certain that 2016 is going to be even better.

Some Tips For Growing Cannabis

Growing Cannabis Tips 

Today we want to share some marijuana growing tips with you, because we believe that the "grow your own" scene is happening soon around the world.  As more governments decide to legalize cannabis, it is time to start learning how to grow your own or at least to have an idea how this is done.  

Making sure that you grow your marijuana correctly, will guarantee that you get some fresh buds and that you smoke some high quality stuff!

Five Tips For Growing Better Marijuana

  1. Make sure that you have enough space - Marijuana plants can get very large, very quickly and if you do not have enough room for your plants, your buds may suffer for it.  So make sure that you plan ahead and that you have enough space for your cannabis plants.  
  2. Find the perfect soil for you - The type of soil that you use, will make a real difference in your cannabis buds, so make sure that you start off your plants with some high quality soil, so that it can have all of the nutrients that it needs.  
  3. Do not use boosters and fertilizers - Away from what many newbie growers and unexperienced growers believe, using boosters and fertilizers on your cannabis plants, is not such a good idea.  Make sure that you know what your cannabis plants need first and at Zip 420, we suggest going organic, in order to protect our planet and environment.  This means, using natural soils and fertilizers, like bat guano or worm castings. 
  4. Read about harvesting time - Making sure that you wait for the right time to pick those cannabis buds, is the perfect way to ensure a better harvest.  Wait at least for 50% of the pistils to start turning brown and make sure that you leave enough free time to harvest your plants.  
  5. Cure your buds - There are many theories on how to cure marijuana buds once they have been harvested and this will all depend on what you have and what you can do.  Make sure that you dry them correctly and do not use the microwave or leave them out directly in the sun, as this will harm your cannabis buds.

Canada Moves To Legalize Marijuana

Canada Is Joining The Legal Marijuana Movement

In a recent interview, Clive Weighill, who is the chief of the police force in Saskatoon, the president of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and a veteran of the August raids, stated that the war on marijuana has not worked at all.  

Thankfully, times are changing in Canada and all over the world, as more countries are already discussing about how to regulate cannabis and Canada might be fully legalizing this herb very soon.  We have talked about this before, but until now, Canada is only offering medical cannabis to certain people in their country.  

Now, the new Liberal government, has promised to make some changes quickly and that they are working on legalizing marijuana for general use.  If this happens, Canada could join a group of 20 countries, which are working on ending cannabis prohibition at a national level.  

Eugene Oscapella, who is a law professor at the University of Ottawa and a legal marijuana advocate stated, "our system is badly, badly flawed! I keep asking myself a question that I have been asking for 30 years: Could we have done a worse job if we tried? Could we have found a way to create a more dysfunction than we managed to create?"

It is more than obvious that the war on marijuana has failed worldwide and that prohibition needs to end today.  Hopefully the new Liberal government in Canada will fulfill their promises and legalize cannabis for regular use nationwide.
