A Desert Hot Springs marijuana grow collective spearheaded by the daughter of Hustler’s Larry Flynt is being called “a bunch of smoke and mirrors” by an attorney suing the business contending it failed to pay three local companies nearly three quarters of a million dollars for their services. The marijuana company acknowledged its debts Monday, but said they were the result of a failed land deal and soon to be dealt with through the sale of a subsidiary.
14 shops are city & state sanctioned. They are trying to be good corporate citizens, providing safe cannabis products, as medicine, and soon recreationally for adults. The rest are fly by night at best. Most delivery services are as well. So who needs weedmaps? Nobody
Jim Patterson, CEO of Eaze, says most local governments are afraid of the mass proliferation of dispensaries, so many cities enact tight restrictions. “The majority of people are in favor of marijuana legalization, but almost no one wants to live next to a dispensary.”
Encinitas voters topped the county in support for Prop 64 with 65 percent approval. Encinitas also used to be the flower capital of the world with agriculture. Add it up, pot people, kis-to-the-met, serendipity, bingo, hoorah, Encinitas city council members voted 4-1 recently to allow commercial marijuana growing in their fair city.
We all know the weed industry is on fire. Why then are wholesale pot prices bottoming out? Big business is getting the blame for growing more marijuana than the market demands and for pushing out smaller businesses that can’t keep up. In the past year, according to CannaSaver.com CEO Brian Shapiro, wholesale weed prices fell 60 percent in 2016, from $2,500 to $1,000, reported Forbes. Carter Laren, cofounder of the cannabis incubator group Gateway, said, “When marijuana sells for $750 a pound, it starts to become difficult to make a profit. When it gets somewhere below $500 a pound, it becomes impossible.” Experts concur there are two ways that businesses can compete in this new market, one of the fastest growing in the country, and that is by developing new cultivation technologies
WHY YOU NEED TO ATTEND THE CALIFORNIA CANNABIS BUSINESS EXPOThis is our third annual business expo for the marijuana industry. In the past 2 years our marijuana industry events have attracted hundreds of sponsors and exhibitors along with thousands of attendees. This year the California Cannabis Business Expo in San Diego promises to be bigger and better than ever. See our 2017 tracks below!
Attorney General Jeff Sessions painted a grim vision of violence in America on Tuesday, telling state law enforcement officials that a recent uptick in murders threatens to undo decades of progress. He pledged to “put bad men behind bars.”
In his first major policy speech as attorney general, Sessions promised that combating violent crime would be a top priority of the Justice Department. He warned of a surging heroin epidemic with drugs pouring in from Mexico, of police officers made to feel overly cautious for fear of being captured on “viral videos” and of rising homicide rates in big cities.
In September of 2001 the Administration of George W. Bush was running into trouble. A President who had lost the popular vote, installed into office only through a hotly contested Supreme Court decision, had nonetheless behaved from the start as if he possessed a mandate, eagerly dismantling his predecessor’s achievements and turning the country on a hard rightward course, following a strategy that had been carefully concealed from the public during the campaign.
The public reaction was swift and negative—Bush’s own popularity tanked precipitously as the public reacted to an agenda most had not realized they had voted for. Prior to September 11th his approval levels had dropped to the lowestof his still-young Presidency.
Never mind the utter falsity of the claim that bad people are “pouring in,” or for that matter of the whole premise behind the ban. What we see here is the most powerful man in the world blatantly telegraphing his intention to use national misfortune to grab even more power. And the question becomes, who will stop him?
San Diego legalized recreational pot dispensaries on Tuesday and the city also opened up the possibility it will allow pot farms, manufacturing facilities and testing labs.
Sales of recreational pot will begin when statewide regulations being crafted in Sacramento are completed sometime before next January. Dispensaries along the coast may have to wait for Coastal Commission approval, but city officials said that’s expected by October.
The San Diego City Council unanimously agreed on Tuesday to allow the sale of recreational marijuana at 15 dispensaries approved by the city to sell medical marijuana, pending the state action, and any additional dispensaries the city approves in the future.
What gives the U.S. the “right” to arbitrarily tax Mexico, and other states?
If Donald says the Mexicans are going to pay for his stupid wall, let’s see him do it. He can’t. He’s not “strong” enough, mentally, to pull off such a bully move, without the whole world literally laughing in his face.
The real problem is, Donald of the small hands was raised badly. He probably has genetic conditions tending towards bi polar and extreme narcissism as well.
When it’s convenient for them, his “party” will turn on him and elevate Pence, so he can “close” the Armageddon deal. You see, Trump ain’t a closer, he’s just a big talker.

Donald Jive Trump sitting on Leninist’s Bannon’s lap!
Trump pulled a fast one. Legalized citizen assassinations are now in his hands!
While we were all fired up and distracted by Trump’s Muslim ban, Trump removed the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Director of National Intelligence from the National Security Council. He replaced them with Steve Bannon. Bannon has no government, intelligence, or high-level military experience; his experience is leading a propaganda outlet (Breitbart News) that peddles nationalist and white nationalist viewpoints.
This would be deeply concerning in and of itself. But one of the jobs of the NSC is to oversee a secret panel that authorizes the assassination of “enemies of the United States Government” – including American citizens. These targeted killings are fully authorized by law under the Congressional military authorization act following 9/11. There is no trial, no due process, and no public record of the decision or the assassination itself.
Just to recap the absurdity: the President of the United States has appointed a known propagandist, nationalist, and white supremacist to replace the highest military advisor in the country on a council that authorizes secret, legal, targeted killings of American citizens (and others) without due process.
What You Can Do:
– Call your Senators and Congressperson this week and demand that they publicly and legislatively oppose Trump’s appointment of Steven Bannon to the NSC.
– Spread the word about this news to your networks, since this is not getting a lot of coverage right now.
Please COPY AND PASTE this update as opposed to sharing the post. Or however you choose, propagate peace!

its not just Saudi Arabia, the made up country based in Islam. The religion itself is stolen in part from the Jews. Like Christianity, its roots are from a time when the world was flat. One bullshit fairy tale after another, Judaism-Christianity-Islam are bound together by history, one to another.
Islam was founded by a warrior, killer, why won’t folks be honest about it? This is not racist, its history. The Saudi family put in power by the “west”, is now defunct. Saudi Arabia is not a country it’s a business steeped in Wahhabism. It needs to be outed, shamed off the world stage, into the dustbin of time.
All three lifestyles posing as “religion”, Islam, Judaism & Christianity are progeny of Moses; scholars agree Moses did not exist.
Let that sink in. Only whack jobs, simpletons really, accept the Abrahamic religions at face value.
The rest of us are baffled. Do you actually believe this crap, your bogus rationale for killing everyone who doesn’t buy your cockamamie version of religious fairy tale, flatworlders, or is it as I’ve long suspected, you just don’t give a fuck about anyone but “your own kind”.
Flatworlders, Trump is your king now, let’s see how this works out for you.
LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Thousands of people are expected to take part in protests against the new administration of President-elect Donald Trump on inauguration day, Friday.
One major protest will be in downtown Los Angeles at the Staples Center, where more than 90 groups are expected to take part in a massive march and protest.
Organizers are asking people to miss work and school on Friday to participate in the protests. Among their demands are no mass deportations, no racism and respect for African-American communities under the Trump administration.
Friday at 12 PM – 4 PM
2 days from now · 55–59° Rain
Park Boulevard and President’s Way Lawn San Diego, CA 92101
WEATHER – We understand that it will be raining the entire weekend, but WE WILL BE MARCHING. Think about the 500+ people that are still camped at Standing Rock in sub-zero tempature and blizzards. We can brave some rain to show how committed we are to deafeating Trump’s agenda and the Republican Party’s attacks.
Bring rain-ponchos available at discount stores. If you plan to carry a sign know that it will get wet, but you can try to protect it with clear packaging tape or laminating. We will have banners as well.
PUBLIC TRANSIT – The number 7 bus runs down Park Blvd and will drop you off very close to the starting point on Park Blvd and Presidents Way.
PARKING – There is a very large parking lot across the street from the grass area where march begins. There is also a smaller lot next to the grass area (enter on Presidents Way)
As we approach the inauguration of Trump, we denounce all of the rhetoric he used to get to this point, but we do not have to accept it. Leading up to his inauguration we will continue to organize actions and protest and much more; keep an eye out for all that on our page.
Consider taking Janurary 20th (#J20) off work and joining us in the streets. We want to send a clear message to the Trump administration that we will not allow business as usual.
We will be gathering at 12 noon at the lawn area on Park Boulevard near the intersection of Presidents Way. There is a large parking lot across the street. We will march to the downtown Federal Building at 880 Front Street where we will end our march with speakers defending immigrant rights, women’s rights, the environment, the Muslim community, racial justice, and the LGTBQ community.

Congress must investigate the Russian attack on America’s 2016 election and explain how such meddling will be prevented in the future.
By Seattle Times editorial board
The Seattle Times
Congress must set aside partisanship and independently investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
This was an attack on U.S. sovereignty and the legitimacy of our democratic process. Congress must investigate and explain how this meddling will be prevented in future elections.
President Obama’s decision to expel diplomats and close Russian facilities in the U.S. was just the reasonable start of our response.
Congress must respond by fully investigating the Russian attack on our democracy and assuring it won’t happen again.

When you’re given the choice between jail and doing push-ups, the decision is pretty obvious.

Congratulations to the Sioux Native Americans for standing strong and for setting an example for the rest of us with their historical victory. Is this a temporary “win”, grasshoppers? Bully’s never give in without resistance.
Although it appears, on the surface, our country changed for the better, look at history for examples
America has broken every treaty ever made with “Natve Americans”. Will Trumpkins take this lying down? Naw, this is just a phase. We’ve come this far due to the perseverance of Native Americans, activists and conservationists who stood in the path of extreme violence from a giant corporation backed by a militarized police force, stay tuned.

Cannabis tech accelerator opens in San Diego
Canopy San Diego now accepting startup applications for 16-week intensive
by Jennifer Van Grove | 6 a.m. July 21, 2016
Canopy San Diego said it is launching now because it believes the state’s legal marijuana market is already sufficiently large enough to support new businesses. With sales projected to reach $2.7 billion this year, California is the largest medical marijuana market in the nation. And, if residents vote in favor of recreational use in November, the state’s cannabis industry is expected to swell exponentially.
As state after state has legalized marijuana in one way or another, big names in corporate America have stayed away entirely. Marijuana, after all, is still illegal, according to the federal government.
But Microsoft is breaking the corporate taboo on pot this week by announcing a partnership to begin offering software that tracks marijuana plants from “seed to sale,” as the pot industry puts it.
“I look at the bible. I read what it says and what it says is its full of this plant called cannabis in Hebrew that is depicted in scripture,” said Gordan. “Matches precisely what we call cannabis today.”
“This [marijuana] is a very important constitutional issue and if it can’t be decided here, I don’t think there is any hope forAmerica, frankly,” added Armstrong.
Police said neither Armstrong nor Gordon have valid marijuana patient or caregiver cards. They have both been charged with possession with intent to deliver/manufacture marijuana and possession in excess of 5 kilograms of marijuana.
With the charges they are facing, a possible penalty is a life sentence and a $1 million fine.
FOR a long time after I came home from the war, fireworks made me jumpy. They sounded like what they are, shrieking rockets and exploding gunpowder, and every Fourth of July set off Alert Level Yellow. I’d crack another beer and try to laugh it off even as the friends I was with turned into ghosts of the soldiers I once knew.
The literary historian Richard Slotkin called this story “the myth of regeneration through violence,” and he traces it from the earliest Indian captivity narratives through the golden age of the western, and it’s the same story we often tell ourselves today. It’s a story about how violence makes us American. It’s a story about how violence makes us good.
Roy Scranton is the author of the forthcoming novel “War Porn” and “Learning to Die in the Anthropocene: Reflections on the End of a Civilization.”
Of course, war and the large military establishments are the greatest sources of violence in the world. Whether their purpose is defensive or offensive, these vast powerful organizations exist solely to kill human beings. We should think carefully about the reality of war. Most of us have been conditioned to regard military combat as exciting and glamorous – an opportunity for men to prove their competence and courage. Since armies are legal, we feel that war is acceptable; in general, nobody feels that war is criminal or that accepting it is criminal attitude. In fact, we have been brainwashed. War is neither glamorous nor attractive. It is monstrous. Its very nature is one of tragedy and suffering.
I visited this shop today for the first time. The quality of the herb, and the pricing, selection, and overall vibes are excellent. The Versace OG at 30$ for four grams (regular price, not FTP), is a fantastic value. Today they gave me 6 grams for FTP. Four grams of Saturn OG was just 30$ as well, really fine herb. The girl said they were licensed by the city. I had not heard that, as I found them in weedmaps.com on my iPhone when going to Mankind Collective just down the street. High Octane rules, Mankind was pretty cool though.
February 2017 update
Where did High Octane Wellness “go”?
They’d moved a few moths ago a couple blocks away from the 6620 Miramar spot, sly dogs they were… good herb for a time, but they’ve disappeared from WeedMaps.com
Assuming the po po closed them up. Were Feds involved? Who got the herb, and money? Where is the m-s-m reporting? Nowhere…
Nothing to see here, keep moving along…
All American citizens have a first amendment right to use cannabis as sacrament without government or corporate interference. Its not just for native americans, its for all of us.
The 1st Amendment is not an option, ITS THE LAW of the land according to the U.S. Constitution. The reason it was the FIRST amendment, is because of its importance. None of the others matter, without its guarantee.
Often faith is an excuse to do whatever your heart desires without consideration for the other beings on the earth. Sometimes it’s used to justify slavery, and mysogny.
Sometimes it’s good, actually useful. How’s yours holding up?

Prop 215 patients Only!
Jive ass disclaimer: this is a pubic service announcement from folks (eaze) who purport to be right-on honorable herb lovers selling cannabis as medicine, they probably are cool. We don’t know. They are not us, the HerbFolksNation! om out, grandpa Dale
8 spots are serving qualified medical patients.
TORREY HOLISTICS at 10671 Roselle St. in Torrey Pines/Sorrento is the farthest north in the county

If you want medical marijuana delivered to your home, now there is an app for that.
Have city/state/federal laws changed, since the DEA/NCIS/ATF/FBI first started arresting herb folks for providing cannabis as medicine, in the second largest city in California, a “mmj” state since 1996? Nope, not really.
Not much at all… San Diego is pretty much locked down. Slingers be sling in’ right alongside real herb folks.
Oakland’s Harborside (now in Orange County just north of here) is banking millions upon millions of dollars, still, without much competition. Are prices still too high, and access lacking where people need it most? Yes.
Apps, however, are “hot”. The notion you can just press a button on your iPhone (a la 420contact.com, Marvina, Eaze, et al, is comforting, to those who actually need cannabis as medicine and have no way to grow their own.
And the apps “work”, a dude arrives at your door with “weed”. Hmm…. the stoners are getting smarter and more efficient, perhaps? Or are businessmen taking over “mmj”, and eventually, recreational cannabis for adults. Yes. So lets dispense with talk of “compassion”, shall we? This is simply commerce.
Is an “app” any better than “the old way (weedmaps.com leafy.com et al)? What difference does it make, if any? What do the lawyer-liars have to say about this trend, anything?
Who are the people, behind the weed-app-economy? How is it they are able to sell “weed” over the internet, these days?
Paul Trouette, Lear Asset Management’s 55-year-old founder, spoke with TPM for more than 30 minutes earlier this week to describe what his company does and why they do it. They see themselves filling a void that law enforcement cannot. Trouette at one point invoked the Pinkertons — the private detective agency notorious for, among other things, violently busting unions and chasing Wild West outlaws — to demonstrate the historical precedent for what they’re now doing in this county of 88,000 on the edge of the California Redwoods.”Law enforcement just doesn’t have the means to take care of it any longer,” Trouette told TPM.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The San Diego County Board of Supervisors Wednesday voted to ban all marijuana businesses in unincorporated county areas.The ban includes all medical and non-medical marijuana facilities, collectives, dispensaries, farms, growing and cultivation.Two medical marijuana dispensaries — near El Cajon and in Ramona — currently operate in unincorporated areas. They will be allowed to stay open for five years, then be forced to close.
