Marijuana Legal States

marijuanas legal states

What are marijuanas legal states? Visiting another state or country? Confused by the laws there? While it’s legal to consume any drug in Oregon in the USA, the Philippines has passed a law allowing anybody to murder a drug dealer with no punishment. Stupidest places in the world to touch drugs Philippines, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia.

The use, possession, sale, cultivation, and transportation of cannabis is illegal under federal law in the United States. However, the federal government has articulated that if a state passes a law to decriminalizecannabis for recreational or medical use, it can do so, under the condition that a regulation system for cannabis is in place. Cannabis is listed as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, the highest classification under the legislation. Part of the reason marijuana remains illegal at the federal level is because it is classified as a Schedule I drug. A Schedule I drug, as defined by the Drug Enforcement Administration, is a substance that has a high potential of being abused by its users and has no acceptable medical uses.[1]

Individual state laws do not always conform to the federal standard. State-level proposals for the rescheduling of cannabis have met with mixed success. As of November 9, 2016, the use of both recreational and medicinal marijuana has been legalized in the states of AlaskaCaliforniaColoradoMaineMassachusettsNevadaOregon, and Washington.[2] The District of Columbia has fully legalized recreational and medical marijuana, but recreational commercial sale is currently blocked by Congress. Twelve states have both medical marijuana and decriminalization laws (three of them being CBDonly[clarification needed]). Thirteen states, Guam, and Puerto Rico have legalized psychoactive medical marijuana, while another thirteen have only legalized non-psychoactive medical marijuana. One state and the U.S. Virgin Islands have only decriminalized possession laws. In the remaining three states and two inhabited territories, marijuana possession and sales for any use are illegal and prohibited entirely. Wikepedia

United States

It’s important to note though that marijuana is a Schedule 1 narcotic under Federal Law so that you could still in theory be arrested by Federal agents for possession. Even in states where recreational use is permitted, some employers might drug test you and fire you for use. National politics are on a different planet than state legislation so there may be a crackdown by the Trump administration soon, even as a law goes through Congress telling the Federal government to leave states alone which have legalized weed. You should always be cautious about doing anything such as pipes with any deposit across state lines (even between nations that permit use) or flying while in ownership as you might be detained by the FBI, DEA or ATF.

Harvesting Marijuana; When To Harvest and What to Look Out For

Having successfully cultivated your marijuana crop to full fruition, the last thing you want to do is to make a mess of the months of tending to your plants in all aspects. Harvesting techniques make a lot of difference; get it right and you’ll end up with a connoisseur high quality weed with a high THC level (a major cannabinoid in marijuana).

Else, you will end up losing the potency, yields and get a sub-par weed.

How to Determine Harvest Time

Proper timing is of great prominence in this harvesting procedure as it can drastically affect the weed quality. The timing of your harvest makes a significant impact on the final effect and taste of your marijuana. It is recommended that you flush your plants two weeks prior to harvesting.

You may require a magnifying tool such as a jeweler’s loupe, a handheld magnifier or a digital microscope. Oh, and your eyes of course. A digital microscope, though it requires a computer and its upfront cost is higher, it will serve you well in the long run, bringing you in touch with the Trichromes.

There are two methods of identifying harvest time:

  1. Pistil method
  2. Trichrome method

The Pistil Method

As the marijuana plant approaches harvest, its pistils begin to change color usually from white to orange/gold or red to brown depending on the strain. Pistils are the large hairs on top of the buds.

Pre-harvesting period is marked by pistils still white and sticking out straight. The harvesting period opens when at least 40% of the pistils have darkened and curled in. it’s a little too early still as the plant lacks in potency and yield. The following are the cannabinoid variations with changes in pistil coloration:

  • Harvesting when 50-70% of hairs are dark in color ensures the highest levels of THC.
  • Harvesting when 70-90% of hairs are dark in color yields to marijuana with a more calming and anti-anxiety effect. The reason behind this is that some THC converts into relaxing CBN type of cannabinoid.


  • This method involves the use of the naked eye thus simple and quite straight forward.
  • It requires no instrument and is therefore cheap.


  • This method isn’t as accurate as looking at the Trichromes which are the glittering wee structures on the buds as discussed herewith.
  • It is difficult to tell when to harvest by observing pistil coloration for some cannabis strains. Some strains will tend to keep their pistil white even when ready for harvesting. Obtain information from the seed bank you got the seeds from or a breeder to guide you on what to look for as the plant changes color at the onset of the harvesting period.

The Trichrome Method

This is the recommended and professional way of checking whether or not crop is ripe for harvesting. View the tiny glandular stalked Trichromes (THC) crystals or frosty stuff, also called resin glands on the stem of your plant, using a microscope or a jeweler’s loupe. THC, CBD, CBN and other good stuff in weed are produced in these glandular stalked Trichromes. It is these glands that dictate bud potency. They also act as a signal indicative of when the highest level of THC and thus the appropriate time to harvest. The following observations under the microscope should be evident:

  • These Trichromes are smaller and translucent in a younger plant.
  • The THC crystals grow bigger and turn translucent as the plant grows on.
  • They finally turn to milky then amber like color (gold or yellow).

Again, it is important to get the color changes right depending on the strain you are growing. Some of the strain’s Trichromes turn purple or pink instead of amber or gold or yellow. Indica cannabis strains are best harvested when their THC glands are milky white but still a bit transparent. Pure sativa strains and indica/sativa hybrids are best harvested when most of the THC glands are a solid milky white color with about one third of them amber in color.

If you get the harvesting late, use of the resulting weed may cause “couch-lock” whereby you won’t be able to move around or be active in any way. The “couch-lock” effect is as a result of the THC turning into a more relaxing CBN cannabinoid responsible for the anti-anxiety effect. Much as some smokers favor this effect, it is undesirable to a smoker seeking the “high like a kite” effect.

Cutting down marijuana plants once harvest time is reached can be done by either wet-trimming or dry trimming. Wet trimming involves cutting down the branches one at a time and carefully removing the leaves around the branches before drying. Manicuring marijuana buds is done next awaiting the drying process. Dry-trimming on the other hand involves cutting the plants and drying them whole up-side-down in a temperature controlled room before harvesting the buds. Getting harvesting right will make you an accomplished ganja farmer.


Curing Marijuana

Curing Marijuana
Curing marijuana is a prominent step in the production of a high quality weed. It’s an intricate process that requires a lot of expertise as we will see hereby. Practice and patience are extremely fundamental in curing for the best possible weed. People who have never encountered cured marijuana will find it smooth and pleasant when they first taste it. This is because curing marijuana changes its subjective effects. Most cultivators don’t actually cure their marijuana to save on time and expenditure in order to make quick money and the result is the sub-par weed you find in the streets.

How Curing Works
Curing makes the difference between “satisfactory” and “excellent” marijuana. In the real sense, curing changes how buds make you feel by changing the composition of THC and other cannabinoids responsible for the effects.

Requirements for Curing Marijuana
Mason jars (1 quart size): these should be wide-mouthed so that your buds can fit to enter without having to bend them. You may opt for a drying rack especially when handling a large batch of buds.

When using drying racks, ensure there is high enough humidity since the rack may dry up the buds too quickly. Hygrometer that preferably fits in the jar will be ideal to help you heck moisture content. Another option is to use humidipaks such as the Boveda Medium 62%; these are uniquely designed for storing cannabis in order not to let it dry out or become crispy.
Benefits of Curing Marijuana

  1. Curing gives bacteria time to break down the remaining chlorophyll. Chlorophyll contains magnesium which is responsible for the harsh and sharp burning. Thus, curing disintegrates chlorophyll thereby improving the taste of the marijuana buds. Curing also brings out the subtle flavor of your particular strain.
    2. This process also reduces harshness of the buds. As such you will be unlikely to cough or experience a headache after. Buds that are cured are less likely to cause anxiety, racing thoughts and paranoia.
  2. Curing allows further control of the moisture level. The drier the bud gets, the faster it loses its taste and aroma. Thus curing offers you a way to control how much moisture you need in your marijuana.
  3. Curing eliminates the smelly odor especially found in freshly cut marijuana.
  4. This curing process also reduces the chance of mold growing on your cannabis.
  5. It also increases potency by concentrating THC levels in your marijuana.

    curing marijuana
    The Curing Process

    There are quite a number of techniques used in curing marijuana. The best method involves the use of air tight glass jars; curing using this technique is well known to produce the most favorable bud. The bud is placed inside the jar and kept in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight. Do not squeeze in and compact buds in the jar for them to fit else the curing process will result into an end result that’s much difficult to burn as the THC cannabinoid particles tend to be grouped in bunches.

The relative humidity should be maintained at about 60-65%. Use a hygrometer to check this up. Alternatively, it is recommended to open the jars daily in the first week for the reasons of checkup and a bit of bud rotation in the jar. After the first week, you are supposed to only open the jars daily for about thirty minutes for about 3-4 weeks. Opening the jars serves the following functions:

  1. Allows excessive moisture to escape for the purposes of moisture control.
    2. Opening the jar ventilates more air to the bacteria breaking down the chlorophyll.

The whole process requires expertise as opening the jar for too long or too short a period may result into the curing process being ineffective. So it is disastrous to either remove too much moisture or let the buds go damp. Either way, the curing process may be hindered or even rendered null and void.
Over-drying the buds may be solved by adding into the jar a newer and wet bud with some moisture; it will moisten the over-dry bud as it loses moisture striking a subtle balance. Some cultivators add a slice of fruit or rind into the jar content for the under listed reasons:

  1. To raise the moisture content in the jar.
    2. Secondly to incorporate a unique taste and aroma to the buds.

In conclusion, the curing process averagely proceeds for 4-8 weeks. When the jars stop burping when opening, just know the chemical activity of the bacteria on chlorophyll has declined and thus your curing has been successful. In chemical terms, curing is the disintegrating action of bacteria on magnesium-containing chlorophyll. Curing is accompanied by changes in the THC and other cannabinoid content in the bud. THC level in your bud increases as a result of skillful curing, thus ensuring high-quality marijuana.

After curing, the bud can be stored almost indefinitely although the THC potency will start to decrease after approximately eight weeks. Storing the buds in a cool and dry place away from sunlight will slow down the degradation in potency with time

Drying Marijuana

Drying Marijuana
After harvesting marijuana, all is not done. You will need to first manicure your harvest before proceeding to drying your plant, after which curing will be appropriate to crown the whole process. When manicuring, you will get to separate the good stuff from the not so good. Drying marijuana, preferably until the small stems snap, will ensure a great taste and quality in your weed distinguishing it from other low quality weed you can find in the street. Some cultivators shrug off this essential process for quick money ending up with sub-par marijuana.

Manicuring Marijuana
Manicuring is an important process of removing excessive leaves and branches from the main stems with bud on them in order to create some really high quality weed. This process is time consuming especially if you grow in large scale and end up with a lot of plants to manicure.

What you require is firstly and a lot of care and patience and a clean flat-topped workspace. It is recommended that you work in a cool and dark room; not so as to hide from anybody but it is just ideal conditions for the marijuana. Light degrades THC and, additionally, you don’t want the leaves to manufacture starch in the presence of white light and your buds end up taking too long to cure. You will need a pair of small sharp scissors. You may need a number of scissors because they are going to be coated in resin and will be sticky. You can clean them using an organic solvent such as alcohol.

Pre-coating the scissors with some olive oil is a trick by some cultivators for lubrication and making them resistant to resin; but still resin does stick. Do not throw away the resin before cleaning with alcohol; it’s packed with lots of cannabinoids and can be used to make some sticky hash for smoking or vaporizing. Wear powder-free latex gloves when working on many plants. These too, will get stuck with resin and all you will have to do after using them is to place them in a plastic bag and put in in a freezer for some time. Frozen resin will be easy to peel off the latex.

Some cultivators manicure right after cutting. This is termed as wet-trimming. Others wait for the plants to dry a little so that the buds pull cannabinoids from the leaves to improve the taste. This is referred to as dry-trimming; it logically aimed at improving the taste but the manicuring gets much difficult. The offcut leaves are not to be thrown away as they too contain cannabinoids though not as much potency as the buds. Drying the leaves will produce pretty good hash.

Drying Marijuana
After manicuring, proper drying will ensure production of the best tasting weed. It takes patience to let your plant dry up till the smaller branches start to snap. It can get really tempting to smoke right after manicuring but with some patience, drying your marijuana will let you have what you really need.

The following is a step-wise guide to proper drying marijuana.

  • Bud positioning: hang the stems upside down in a dark room. The buds should be pegged hanging down for faster drying. Alternatively, you can lay them on a mesh and keep rolling them over so that they dry evenly. All this should be done in dark room for reasons of prevention of THC degradation.
  • · Spacing: the buds should be adequately spaced away from each other so that individual buds don’t touch.
  • · Temperature: ensure that the room temperature is 18-23oC an equivalent of about 64-73oF. Temperatures exceeding these values will take a negative toll on the weed quality.
  • · Humidity: ensure that the room’s humidity is maintained at 50%. A hygrometer will assist in measurement of humidity. A humidifier or dehumidifier will help to regulate humidity by adding or reducing moisture content of the air respectively.
  • · Ventilation: ensure there is good air ventilation. Clean and circulating air dries up your plant optimally.

A proper drying should take 10-20 days. Do not put your marijuana over a heater or in a microwave, for example, to hasten the drying process; patience is key remember. Hastening the natural process will definitely affect the final taste and weed quality. Cannabis is fully dried up when you can break a stem easily; it should immediately snap when you bend it. Flexing or resisting bending calls for further drying. You should, however, not over-dry your marijuana because it will take longer to cure.

In conclusion, it is worth pointing out that odor control and proper ventilation will be necessary especially when a large batch of marijuana is being let to dry. Freshly cut marijuana buds are smelly. Give your plants time and be patient so that they can snap immediately when bent. Having fully dried up your marijuana, the next step will be curing.

Cooking with cannabis

Why would anyone want to cook with pot? Well, there are a few reasons that pop into my head:

1) Different high. Eating weed produces a different high than smoking weed does. Some describe it as “deeper” or as having more of a body sensation.

2) Sore throat. When you throat is feeling a little scratchy or flat out raw, you may not feel like smoking weed.

3) Smell. If you are afraid that someone will smell pot on your breath or on your clothes, eating pot offers a valuable alternative.

4) Taste. This may be a shock to you, but some people don’t enjoy the taste of weed when smoked. If you are one of these people, you can see how eating the weed in a sweet food will help to mask the taste and still get you high.

Don’t expect to get high right away when eating pot in food. The high usually takes 40-60 minutes to fully “creep” up on you. Also, if you consume a lot, don’t expect to do much the rest of the day. Eating pot can really burn you out.

Why Pot Butter?

Cooking with pot butter allows you the freedom to eat your weed without biting into any stems and seeds. Why would you spend so much time cooking a desert just to have it ruined by the suspended scraps of weed? By following the recipe at the bottom of this page, you will be able to create one batch of pot butter (figure 9.1) to be used in any recipe you like. You can use the recipes I have given or create your own, but the key is to have fun.

For Best Results

For best results, don’t smoke weed before eating your marijuana treats. You be will tempted to break out your best piece while waiting for the high to kick in; try to hold out. When you realize you are high (and haven’t smoked herb all day) it’s really cool!

Chronic vs. Stress
When cooking with marijuana it is recommended that you use a low to medium grade harvest. This may seem contrary to what you have read thus far, but good weed is simply too expensive to eat and the “high” produced by consuming quality weed is not worth the extra cost. Save your chronic for another day.

How to make cannabis butter

1 bag of shake (roughly 1/2 pound – 1 pound)
Large cooking/stock pot (mine is a 4 gallon)
5 pounds butter or margarine
cheesecloth for straining
thick elastic bands
empty plastic containers with lids (ice-cream pails or large Tupperware work best)
ladle or coffee mug
rubber gloves or oven mitts

It’s always best to use the best leaf you can find. The more potent the shake, the more potent the butter!

  1. Put your 5 pounds of butter/margarine into the stock pot.
  2. Put in your bag of VERY dry shake (try to sift out any stalks or foreign matter.)
  3. Fill the pot with cold water leaving about 4 inches at the top for stirring.
  4. Set your stove element to med heat, leaving a slight crack open on the lid for steam to escape. Once the mixture comes to a boil, turn the heat down to low and
    simmer for at least 5 hours. (You can do it for longer, but 5 hours is the minimum time to simmer.)
  5. Stir with a wooden spoon occasionally.
  6. Take it off the element and let it cool for a while. (Note: you only want to cool it as much as you’ll need to be able to handle it with gloves, the hotter it is, the easier it
    is to squeeze the butter out of the leaf.)
  7. Cut yourself some squares of cheesecloth and spread out your plastic containers. Put the cloth pieces over each container and secure it with the elastic bands. (I
    usually double up each bit of cheese cloth.)
  8. Take a ladle or coffee mug and scoop out some of the green mixture onto the cloth. Keep pouring until you get close (about 6″) to the top of the container. Then
    take the cheesecloth off and squeeze into the container as hard as you can to get the most butter out of the mix.

Repeat into all containers until all of your green stew is out of the stock pot and squeezed into the containers. *Note: most of the butter is saturated into the leaves and
that’s the part you want to ensure gets totally squeezed out of the mixture and into your containers.

  1. Put the lids on your filled containers and place them on a level surface in your freezer.
  2. After about 5 hours, the butter will solidify and some of the water will turn to ice. Take each container one by one over to the sink, take off the lid, and with one
    hand supporting the ice block, turn container upside down and release. Some water will come pouring out, and the ice just needs to be scraped away from the main butter
    block. You should be left with a smooth, round slab of light green butter.
  3. I store my butter in empty margarine containers in the fridge. If you’ve got lots, you can put the butter back in the freezer and take it out as needed. Or you can
    share it with your friends.

You can use this butter just as you would regular butter in any baking recipe. Simply substitute the butter your recipe calls for with your special butter.

Chronic Bud Brownies

2 Eggs
3/4 cup Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Salt – Optional
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2/3 cup Unsifted flour
1/2 cup chopped Walnuts
1/2 cup marijuana butter
3/4 cup Powered Chocolate
1/4 teaspoon Baking powder

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a spoon, stir eggs with sugar and vanilla; add butter, Chocolate, flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into egg mixture; add nuts. Spread into greased 8 or 9″ square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes. For extra chewy brownies, use 8″ pan and less baking time. For cake like brownies use 9″ pan and longer baking. Cut into squares. Eat in moderation!


This is the stoniest fudge you’ll ever eat! You will need:
4 cups sugar
2 5oz cans evaporated milk
1 cup Ganja Butter
1 12 oz. package semisweet chocolate chips
1 7 oz. jar marshmallow creme
1 tsp. vanilla
a candy thermometer — important!
a 13x9x2″ (or close to that) square/rectangular dish

first, combine the sugar, milk, and Ganja Butter in a large pot. cook and stir on medium high until it begins to boil, then reduce to medium heat. continue to stir until the temp reaches 236 degrees (i told you the candy thermometer was important!) it should take about 12 minutes. Don’t burn it!

remove the big pot from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips, vanilla, and marshmallow creme. tip: if you have a microwave, nuke the marshmallow creme for about 20 seconds first — that will make it come out of the jar easier.
stir until well blended, pour into the pre buttered dish…this should make about 50 1.5 inch squares.
each square is good enough for one person or two lightweights… enjoy!

Just make a regular chocolate chip cookie batch, your very favorite kind. Then look at the weed you’re going to cook with and decide how many cookies you’d like it to make. So if you’ve got say a couple joint’s worth, make maybe 3 or 4 cookies with it. Experiment with amounts. Maybe you’ve got just enough for one cookie.

Then to make sure all the THC is properly isomerized by heat (something I’m not sure would otherwise happen given the short cooking time and relatively low mid-cookie  temperature),  sauté  the  weed  in a  bit of vegetable oil in a little pan or pot at a low-med temperature ’til it’s nice and aromatic and getting just a bit crispy and darker, but *not* to the point of toasted, brown, or god forbid, burnt in any way. Cool the oil/weed mixture down, then add however may cookies’ worth of dough to the pan, mix it all up to get all the weed and now psychoactive green oil blended in, and then dollop out your special green cookies onto the baking sheet along with their paler non psychedelic brethren and bake away!

Hint: don’t use too much oil to precook the weed, or the cookies will be too, well, oily.

Variation: don’t use any oil at all to precook the weed, just stir it around in a dry pan, being again very careful not to burn any. I’m not sure which works best in terms of THC utilization – with oil or without, but I feel a bit safer using some oil because the heat is more evenly distributed and there’s less chance of burning.

This last technique, cooking the weed in a dry pan, is from the famous early 70’s primer “A Child’s Garden of Grass” and does work very well if you’re careful not to burn, allowing you to add the isomerized toasted grass to almost anything.

How to Make – Rice Creeper Treats (It’s like rice crispy treats)


3 tablespoons pot-margarine*
1 (10 ounce) bag regular marshmallows
6 cups crisp rice cereal
1 (12 ounce) package butterscotch pieces

1) Melt the margarine in a large sauce pan over low heat.
2) Add marshmallows and mix until completely melted and then remove from heat.
3) Immediately add the cereal and stir until coated.
4) Mix in the butterscotch pieces.
5) Press the mixture into a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
6) Chill. Cut into 2-inch squares when cool.
7) “Enjoy my friends…enjoy.”


Cannabis Vodka


1/4 oz. of stockpiled cannabis stems from breaking up buds.
Vodka (any kind should do)
Glass container


Place all stockpiled stems in a jar. Pour in your vodka, just enough to fully submerge the stems. Let set in a dark place for about a week. After that, you will need to strain out the stems. A great trick is to make tea type bags out of coffee filters and stems for easy removal.
