cannabis genetic stability

For a long time, growers have stabilized the genetics of some cannabis strains in order to obtain those desired phenotypic, genotypic and chemotypic characteristics. But what does genetic stability consist of? It refers to “the tendency of a population to maintain its genotypes through generation” (NAL Agricultural Thesaurus and Glossary, 2013); so the successor daughters will retain the genetic material that is present in the DNA of a mother plant. Therefore, the genotype is the genetic inheritance that is maintained as long as it is in the same environmental conditions as the mother and does not present major alterations.

Thinking about the media means facing many voices that perform the function of expressing and reporting an event or situation from any part of the world. Voices so powerful that they can influence the thinking, judgment or opinion of the population. It could be said that journalism has the ability to "link" anyone regardless of their age, social status or location. The media plays an important role in the knowledge of all events that are part of daily life. In this sense, it allows us to know the reality outside of the immediate environment.

cannabis and tax revenue: one more reason to legalize it.

Due to the growing demand for cannabis and the products derived from this plant in the world, its legalization is presented as an opportunity for economic growth capable of generating new jobs. It is an especially relevant opportunity for countries with low and moderate economic development, with economies oriented towards agricultural production. In addition, the legalization of cannabis contributes to the industrial production of textiles and medicines. Economic growth is essential to increase tax revenues that can be allocated to health, education, infrastructure and social programs, especially in these times when the pandemic has caused significant economic stagnation and a tough fiscal deficit. According to the International Center for Tax and Development (ICTD), legalizing the production and use of cannabis has been a new source of economic growth for developed countries, and…
