the right tools for the job

“The world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better…with hands…with tools …with horse sense and science and engineering.”-ROBERT A. HEINLEIN, THE DOOR INTO SUMMER THE ONLY WAY to cultivate the finest-quality cannabis is to possess and use the tools necessary to accomplish the task and to continue to learn new techniques and apply them to the next growing cycle. Each year since 1999, we here at the High Times cultivation department reveal our choices for the best grow gear of the year. We travel far and wide, to hydroponic stores and conventions and gardens large and small, paying close attention to what farmers are utilizing to get the best from their crops. We test and use the tools ourselves, and we send them out into…

Veterans Issue Just wanted to say thanks for your September issue highlighting the problems facing our military veterans. While it’s heartbreaking that so many brave servicemen and women are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, I’m encouraged to learn about groups like Twenty22Many, that are providing support and medicine to veterans in need. It’s so important to educate the public about the debilitating effects of PTSD, and how veterans are disproportionately at risk. We need to support these people who have served their country. They need safe access to quality cannabis, which shows great promise in treating symptoms associated with trauma. Keep up the good work. Jeff Darlington St. Louis, Missouri Psychedelic Caution As a reaction to the news of magic mushrooms being [decriminalized in Denver], I feel that the potential for how legalization could impact…

more science, please

GOOD POLICY USUALLY has sound science behind it. We like it when laws and regulations are formed after a sober consideration of tested, or at least testable, results. But how do we know when the science is truly sound? Throughout the push for weed legalization, both advocates and prohibitionists have touted scientific research to promote their ends. A genuine study will appear that shows that megadoses of THC can inhibit tumor growth in lab rats, and it is a certain bet that some of the more enthusiastic among us will declare, “Weed cures cancer!” The study itself might be sound, but the conclusions drawn are premature, to say the least. Similarly, a peer-reviewed study might report that the long-term, daily ingestion of high levels of THC is associated with higher rates of…

weird weed facts

IT’S IN THE AIR! Trace amounts of weed can be found in the air in several Italian cities. Researchers at Italy’s Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research have published the results of a yearlong study that monitored psychotropic substances in the air of eight Italian cities: Rome, Bologna, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Turin and Verona. Trace amounts were found in all eight cities, but Florence and Bologna had the highest concentrations of pot. Attractions such as the Colosseum and the Pantheon have a bit of weed wafting through the atmosphere—an extra tourist appeal! POT TRUTH SERUM In 1942, as World War II raged, the United States’ newly established spy agency, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), asked its scientists to create a truth drug to interrogate prisoners of war. After failing with several substances,…

Oakland, CA, became the second US city to decriminalize magic mushrooms this year, following Denver’s lead into this trippy territory. The City Council voted unanimously to decrim possession of psilocybin mushrooms, along with ayahuasca, cacti and iboga. Synthesized psychedelics like LSD or MDMA will remain verboten at this time. In practice, the new law will make investigations and arrests for using or growing plant-based hallucinogens a low priority for cops. Impetus for the cool policy began last October when Carlos Plazola, who was a chief of staff for a former Oakland City Council president, locked himself in a bedroom and noshed a heroic five grams of shrooms, the Los Angeles Times reported. The trip, Plazola’s first, inspired him to co-found Decriminalize Nature Oakland, which wrote the ordinance and lobbied to…
