    New Age, Activist Nuns Are Growing Cannabis

    New Age, Activist Nuns Are Growing Cannabis

    They really want the media to move on about the whole nun thing. Their mission is more important: reshaping the tarnished reputation of a plant that provides numerous health benefits. “The Cannabis plant,” writes Sister Kate in a forum post on their website, “has, against science and truth, been maligned and lied about for seventy-five years and the lights have now gone on, and it is time for everyone to know, for everyone to see. So we try to bury our indignation, when our earnings are over-stated or our mission is made to look greedy and capitalistic, because their spin is getting the conversation going.”

    The India Hemp Drugs Commission Report of 1894 Found Cannabis Totally Chill

    The India Hemp Drugs Commission Report of 1894 Found Cannabis Totally Chill

    Before Clinton extended maximum sentencing, before Reagan announced his policy of zero tolerance, before William Randolph Hearst, DuPont, Herbert Hoover and his cronies gave weed its Spanish name and illegal status to boost their market share, there was the India Hemp Drugs Commission Report. The history of government involvement in chemical research is a story as long as our millennial attention spans are short. But the report written by representatives of the British and Indian governments in 1894 marks one of the strangest and most hilarious examples of straight-laced suits getting groovy to gather government intelligence on narcotics in history.

    Sustainable Cannabis Growers to Watch 

    Sustainable Cannabis Growers to Watch 

    A real fear for many is the catastrophic scenario –our ocean levels rising, plants and animals dying off– all attributed to global warming. One of the first steps to fight global warming is to become more ecologically sustainable. Sustainability in agriculture is defined as the ability to maintain a balance of our ecosystem and how humans impact the environment. Cannabis growers are on the front lines of the sustainability movement. Many sustainable cannabis growers are members of the 'Agriculture Green Movement' aiming to cut down on carbon footprints. These growers are striving to preserve natural ecological processes, functions, biodiversity while using man made technology, aiming to do less harm to our Earth. True cannabis connoisseurs understand the importance of keeping things natural, particularly the plant they love so much. Just like the consumers of cannabis, these growers understand the importance of keeping things natural as well, which is why they are making strides to make cannabis cultivation more ecologically friendly. By reducing manmade carbon footprints cannabis growers are going green.
