Aeroponics is a method of growing cannabis plants that uses no medium for the roots. It´s a style of hydroponic gardening where the roots are suspended in the air as the nutrients and water are delivered via a system that continually mists the roots. This grow method was first discovered as a way to study plants´ root systems in the first half of the 20th century. Initially there was no thought to utilizing aeroponics beyond root-based research, but this changed over the years and aeroponics has since become a respectable and beneficial way to cultivate plants. How Do Aeroponic Growing Systems Work? As mentioned, aeroponics works by suspending the roots in the air and applying nutrients and water with a fine mist. The dissolved nutrients in the water in combination with the water itself, sunlight, CO2, and oxygen are enough to keep a cannabis plant healthy and thriving as long as the roots continuously receive moisture. To accomplish this, aeroponic systems have a specific setup. The system is composed of two main features: the reservoir and the planter bed. The reservoir is where the water supply is stored and checked for quality and nutrient levels, and the planter bed is where the plants are grown. Planter beds can come in many designs but their foremost features include a misting system, drainage system, and a system for supporting and separating the roots from the plant. Finally, to connect the two, pumps are used to continuously exchange the water. To start, a seedling grown in a medium (e.g. a rockwool cube) will be placed in net cup pots that separate the inside and outside of the planter bed. A collar is then placed around the base of the stalk. This collar helps to prevent the mist in the bed from evaporating or molding the stalk while protecting the roots from getting infected or damaged. From this point, the roots will grow out of the rockwool and through the net cup while the plant grows upward away from the bed. The water used to feed the new plants is delivered through water lines with spray nozzle attachments that insert into the planter bed. When coming out of the nozzles, the water is made into a fine mist that then blankets the root systems of the plant. The excess moisture collects on the bottom of the planter bed and drains back into the reservoir to be recycled. It should be noted that some systems are designed to use the bottom of the planter bed as the reservoir and then pump the water directly back into the water lines. This style will work fine; however, it is more difficult to check the reservoir without disrupting the roots.

In 2016, illegal sales of marijuana in the U.S. were estimated at $46.6 billion, and black market illegal sales made up 87 percent of all weed sales. Combined sales ? both legal and illegal ? in the industry totaled $53.3 billion, which is a pretty astounding figure when you consider that in 2016 wine sales in the U.S. reached $38 billion, corn sales were $23.3 billion and wheat sales were $7.5 billion. Marijuana is grown illegally in all 50 states, but the largest illegal trespass grows are found in California. With California being only one of six true Mediterranean climates on the globe, and with an ideal climate for growing marijuana almost year round, the state led the nation in 2016, producing at least 13.5 million pounds of marijuana ? five times more than the 2.5 million pounds it consumed. In addition to cannabis being sanctioned for medical use throughout the state, and recreational cannabis (which will be legal in 2018 throughout California), the largest amount of illegal marijuana in the state is found in clandestine trespass grows run by Drug Trafficking Organizations (DTO?s) on national forests, parks, recreation areas and wildlife refuges including state and local wildlands. Each year, between 4,000 and 6,000 trespass growers take to the woods of California, and spend at least half the year working 24/7 cultivating and protecting their lucrative cash crop. They divert and pollute millions of gallons of pristine water while using illegal fertilizers and pesticides (some so toxic they were banned by the EPA from use in the US over a decade ago). These groups use large amounts of rat poison and over-the-counter poisonous insecticides and rodenticides. The violent groups carry firearms, knives, anti-personnel and animal boobie traps (punji pits, trip holes, snares, etc.). On the sinister side of the occult, these cartel groups also dabble in black magic and use shrines to honor Patron Saints such as Santa Muerte (Patron of Death). However, there is an elite group of game wardens who hunt these cartels and risk their lives to keep America´s wild places free. Hidden War: How Special Operations Game Wardens Are Reclaiming America´s Wildlands From The Drug Cartels tells that story.
The history of the marijuana movement is filled with great characters ? daredevils, risk-takers and kids who grew green thumbs and learned how to grow; as well as martyrs who went to prison for freeing the weed. These are some of their stories. Ganja Tales: Author revives and expands his marijuana classic from 2000, for the cannabis culture today. There´s little comedy in these twelve dramatic short stories that everyone can relate to.
If there ever was a time to build an American hemp industry, the time is now. In Jesse Ventura´s Marijuana Manifesto, former Minnesota Governor teamed up with Jen Hobbs to explain why it´s time to fully legalize cannabis and end the War on Drugs. Through their research, it became clear that hemp needed its own manifesto. Jen Hobbs takes up this torch in American Hemp. December of 2018 marked a largely unprecedented victory for cannabis. The 2018 Farm Bill passed and with it hemp became legal. What the federal government listed for decades as a schedule 1 narcotic was finally classified as an agricultural crop, giving great promise to the rise of a new American hemp industry. Filled with catchall research, American Hemp examines what this new domestic crop can be used for, what makes it a superior product, and what made it illegal in the first place; the book also delves into the many health and medical benefits of the plant. Hobbs weighs in on how hemp can improve existing industries, from farming to energy to 3D printing, plus how it can make a serious impact on climate change by removing toxins from the soil and by decreasing our dependence on plastics and fossil fuels. American Hemp lays out where we are as a nation on expanding this entirely new (yet ancient) domestic industry while optimistically reasoning that by sowing hemp, we can grow a better future and save the planet in the process.
In 1996, California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana when voters passed Proposition 215, also known as the Compassionate Use Act. Since then, 24 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws legalizing marijuana in some form. Four states, including Alaska, Oregon, Colorado and Washington, have legalized marijuana for recreational use. Many states, including Arizona and Ohio, have marijuana proposals on an upcoming ballot or are considering legislation to allow for legalized cannabis use. Despite the rapid trend toward legalization, there are many people and groups that are opposed to the decriminalization of the drug. Since the actual medical benefits of marijuana are still unknown, as are long-term effects of recreational use, many in the medical community are opposed to legalizing it. Law enforcement and educators have also been vocal opponents of legalization efforts because of the potential increase in crime that may result. On the other hand, there are many others who are in full support with the push toward legalization. This includes well-known groups such as the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws and the Marijuana Policy Project. Businesses and entrepreneurs who are poised to make thousands, if not millions, from sales, are actively supporting the new laws. Those who now use marijuana, or those who want to but are deterred because of its legal status, are also in favor of changing the laws. Marijuana 360 examines the perception of marijuana legalization from the perspective of those who are directly involved some aspect of legal marijuana. The authors interview a variety of representatives from different constituent groups that have been affected by marijuana legalization. For example, the authors interview a variety of law enforcement officers from states that have legalized marijuana and from those states that are considering it, to get their impressions of the impact the law has made (or will make) in their area. Other constituent groups include medical professionals, educators, parents, lawmakers, business owners, drug users, corrections personnel, legal personnel, and others. Each chapter will focus on a different group and present that group?s perceptions and impressions of marijuana legalization. Marijuana 360 increases our understanding of what different professionals think about the legalization of marijuana. To help facilitate this, each chapter will begin with a general summary of major points to be, highlight major events or people who play a key role in that topic, provide data and summary information on relevant topics, when appropriate, and provide resources for those who want to seek additional information.
